Re: Cousin in Johannesburg #southafrica

The street is probably RISSIK Street, a main thoroughfare on which was
located the City Hall and the Central Post Office. Today the address is in
the very center of Johannesburg. Unfortunately, with such a common family
name, I have no knowledge of your cousin.

Sincerely,

Rev. David Crook

Question re Passenger Lists #general

krippens@...
 

Hello fellow Genners!

Are the passenger lists in the National Archives the same as the
manifests at Ellis Island? In other words, if I have passenger
manifests that show date of arrival as well as city of origin,
are the passenger lists at the National Archives going to show
me anything new?

Thanks very much,

Ship arrivals in the 1880's... where #general

Denise <val5001@...>
 

Hi Genners,

Can anyone help me in figuring out where to find these records??
It seems that *most* of my relatives came into the United States
in the 1880's. All the stories of course are that they came into
New York, but for those that settled in PA and TN, what other
common ports of entry were available during that time?

Also, I've been given a specific year (1894), and a specific ship
(Darmstadt) and cant find the person. Matter of fact, I cant find
that ship coming into New York at all in that year. Any suggestions?

Thanks in Advance!! Please respond privately.
Happy New Year!

Looking for birth parents, Staten Island 1939. #general

BSwart10@...
 

A Male friend was born on November 9th, 1939, in Staten Island,
NY, County of Richmond. He was given up for adoption immediately
and was taken in by the Louise Wise Agency. He was adopted on
March 26, 1940 by his adopted parents.

I have in my hands a Certification of Birth with the Birth Record
No. of 2098 filed in Richmond Office of the Bureau of Records on
November 16, 1939.

I also have a letter, written by the Louise Wise Services to my
friend Robert Keery (adopted name), giving him the information
that they were allowed to give him in March 25, 1993. It tells of
a young woman, pregnant living in their Staten Island residence
for pregnant women. Whe delivered at the local hospital. They
also tell him that they were Jewish parents 19 & 18 years old.
They were unmarried and each was an American born Jew. She was
the oldest of four children all ranging >from 8 to 16 years.
Maternal grandparents were both 48 years old and each had been
Austrian born. Grandfather was employed as a baker and your
grandmother was a housewife.

The birth Mother dropped out of high school at age 16. slender
with dark brown hair and heavily lashed dark brown eyes. and she
was about 5"2" tall. She was in good health as well as the father
of the unborn child. The father was 5"8" tall, blond and blue eyed.
They dated and then when the father heard of the pregnancy he
disappreared.

Can anyone help me find his birth certificate which should have
his birth Mother and Father listed on the certificate. What he
has, is a certification only, with no additional information,
except when he was born and when they registed his name at the
Department of Health which was the 18 day of Feb. 1941. Nothing
else--no Hospital, no birth parents etc.

It seems to me, that the original birth certificate was sealed,
the Agency will not give out the information.

My feelings is that there were not that many hospitals on Staten
Island in 1939 and not many Jewish people living on the Island
and probably not many births on that day in 1939. Am I thinking
in the right direction? Please help if you have any suggestion,
how to go about the research.

Re: Riederloh More (Kaufering camps) #general

NFatouros@...
 

This is just a follow-up to the message I sent earlier regarding
Lili Susser's Sept.10-02 inquiry regarding a camp called Riederloh.

I just checked my copy of "The Holocaust Chronicle,"(Publications
International,Ltd. 2002). Although it doesn't mention Riederloh,
it does have a photograph of a group grave exhumation of victims
found at one of the eleven "Kaufering" camps (of which Riederloh
was one, as I learned while researching Riederloh on the Internet).
According to the "Chronicle's" account, at these subsidiaries of
Dachau the inmates were supposed to build fighter-aircraft factories,
but the program was never carried out. Thousand of inmates at
these camps died of exhaustion, starvation, and disease, or they
were executed (not that the causes of death at the Kaufering camps
differed >from those at other Nazi camps!). On another page of the
"Chronicles" there is still another photograph of camp III of the
Kaufering camps, this one showing a commandant Eichelsdorfer who
was forced to stand amid the corpses of those shot as the Americans
neared the camp.

But as I wrote in my earlier response I had found on the internet
a mention of Riederloh in connection with the Alfred-Noble Dynamite
factories. Perhaps the building of the Dynamite factory at Riderloh
was never accomplished.

INTRO - Researching KURREIN. LOEWE (LEVY), FRIEDLANDER, LOEBEL #germany

Martin Kurrein <martinkurrein@...>
 

Hello to all members.

I'm researching ancestors and descendants of Louis LOEWE (Moses
Montefiore's secretary and biographer), and the ancestors of Rabbi Adolf
KURREIN, father Markus KURREIN (Gorein, Corein?) 1802-1848, of Trebic.

The LOEWE descendants are not too difficult. It's the ancestors that are
causing me more problems. He appears to have been born LEVY (his father was
Jacob Simon LEVY of Zulz, Silesia, who was also known by the name
GOLDSCHMID).

The KURREIN's appear >from apparently nowhere with MARKUS in 1802.

Any hints, tips or assistance gratefully received. Many thanks,

Martin Kurrein London UK

My comment:

If your grandfather was "officially" imprisoned in Dachau his name
should be on the list of Dachau inmates. A significant part of these
records is already indexed by JewishGen.

Another way to get confirmation is through the Dachau museum staff who
promise to send copies of the records to next of kin. Their email address

Help with 1829 Russian occupations #general

R Gerber <beccamd@...>
 

I am working on a project for JewishGen, and could use the expertise
of someone. I have a series of documents handwritten in Russian.
There are several columns

1 - female record number
2- male record number
3 - who performed the bris (usually 2 or 3 names)
4 - Christian date of birth (and date of bris)
5 - Jewish date of birth (and date of bris)
6 - where recorded (usually in Kishinev)
7 - Father and mother of child
8 - name of the child

I am particularly interested in column 7. This column at times
includes the father's occupation.

I have images of some of the lines which include occupations.

If you think you can help, please contact me privately, and I can
send the files to you.
