Searching BANDAU - Prezworsk/Przemsyl #general

Ron Kaminker <Ron@...>
 

Hi

I just found birth certificate of my great grandfather that states his
mother as being Keile BANDAU.

There are no BANDAU's in JGFF or JRI-Poland.

Any BANDAU researchers out there? Any suggestions?

Thanks

Henry BUDGE family history {was Hamburg Obituary of 1928} #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Dr Neil Rosenstein [N.J.] asks: <Looking to obtain the Obituary of Henry BUDGE
who died in Hamburg Oct. 20, 1928. He was a member of the New York Stock
Exchange for over 40 years and left in his will $1 million. Did he have issue?>

If you can read German, you will find a complete timeline and genealogical
details of Henry BUDGE here: http://tinyurl.com/yxrm4z

The first known member of the family was Mousche BUTTGE of Wetzlar, Germany.
[1734]. The name was changed to BUDGE in 1815, by Moritz {Henry's father}, who
was born in Wetzlar on 15 April 1802 to Salomon BUTTGE [Henry's grandfather].

Heinrich [Henry] was born on 20 November 1840 - he was one of seven siblings,
the son of Moritz BUDGE and Henriette ADLER [daughter of a rabbi]. Henry and
his wife Emma Ranette LAZARUS, born 17. Feb. 1852, married in 1879. "Die Ehe
bleibt kinderlos" ie they had no children. Emma LAZARUS came >from Hamburg,
whereas Henry was >from Frankfurt. The couple eventually retired to Hamburg.
They had an opulent house there [Budge Palais]. In 1909 Henry built a room of
mirrors for his wife's birthday present in which many famous performers
appeared inc. Enrico Caruso and Paul Hindemith.

Henry's first trip to the USA took place in 1866.

Henry and Emma Budge were great philanthropists [to Jewish as well as Christian
charities] and academic institutions.

Prof. Peter KAHN, USA, provided biographical details in 1986/87. He is a great-
nephew of Henry BUDGE. I presume there is a large family tree - perhaps in the
Leo Baeck Institute?

tombstones #sephardic

Kormans
 

I have a question about 2 tombstones. The husband and wife died in the very
early 20th century and are buried in Esztergom (now western Slovakia, then
Hungary).

The tombstones read for both - hebrew name of deceased and then son of (or
daughter of) with the MOTHER's hebrew name. The father's hebrew name is
totally omitted.

These two people were blood related. The wife's father was the half brother
of the husband. Both were >from legally married unions. Even if nobody knew
the husband's father's name at the time of his death, the husband would have
had that information for the wife who predeceased him.

Someone suggested that putting the mother's name on the tombstone instead of
the father is a Sephardic custom.

Any thoughts?

Thank you

Kuzmin, Krasilov, Kamenets-Podolskiy #ukraine

Jeff Miller
 

I went to the Yad Vashem search site,
http://www.yadvashem.org/lwp/workplace/IY_HON_Welcome
I did an Advanced Search on Town of Kuzmin, which I know is outside of
StaroKonstantinov in Volhynia Gub., and learn:
Town KUZMIN,
District KRASILOV,
Region, KAMENETS PODOLSKI,
Country UKRAINE (USSR)

I didn't realize that there was a District called Krasilov, or a Region
called Kamenets-Podolski --

Can anyone clarify this for me?

I have a FRAIDER naturalization document that has "Komentz" (which I
interpreted as Kamenets-Podolsky) as the place of birth. Since family
members have indicated, through interviews and documentation, including an
autobiography of one family member, that the last place of residence prior
to immigration to the U.S., was Kuzmin, outside of StaroKonstantinov in
Volhynia Gub., I was interpreting this fact as indicating the family had
moved at some point >from Kamenets-Podolski in Podolia Gub. to Kuzmin.

Now, if I understand this Yad Vashem database as indicating that the region
of Kuzmin is known as Kamenets-Podolski, this could lead to a different
interpretation of the fact that I have >from the naturalization record. I
would appreciate any assistance or insight that anyone can provide.

University over the Abyss - Terezin lectures #austria-czech

I just searched the message archives of our SIGs and the General Discussion
Group and to my surprise I see we have never had a posting about this book:

2nd Edition: University over the Abyss
Elena Makarova, Sergei Makarov & Victor Kuperman.
The story behind 520 lecturers and 2,430 lectures in KZ Theresienstadt
1942-1944
Verba Publishers Ltd. Jerusalem, Israel, 2004. Hard-cover. 560 pp., 320
illustrations. ISBN 965-424-049-1.

http://www.sharat.co.il/lel/terezin/first.htm

The list of lecturers is given here:
http://www.sharat.co.il/lel/terezin/list.htm

On the home page, you will see the programme for 12-18 June 1944.
I could comment, but any comment is superfluous and too painful.

Footnote: this is a one-time mention. I have no interest in this book, other
than an academic one [statement to conform to Jewishgen rules]. I am sure,
however, I/we will consult the list of lecturers again in our Austria-Czech
research work.

Re: Holocaust era insurance policies #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Tomer Brunner told us about this website: www.pheip.org/search.asp
and suggested contacting Generali in Israel.

I contacted Generali in Trieste re my Viennese uncle's confirmed insurance
policy. At first they denied any evidence of relationship and then they wrote
that as he was married to my mother's sister who predeceased him, I was not
eligible as I was not in the direct line according to Austrian law. So there
you are. The money remains where it is, as there are no direct descendants - my
uncle and aunt were childless. If ever there was a case for latitude, this is
it. By the way these problems are best aired on a dedicated discussion group:

Holocaust Era Restitutions Discussion Group
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/h-justice

The founder and Moderator is none other than Austria-Czech and Hungarian Sigger
Tom Venetianer [Brazil] who has worked very hard for many aspects of
Jewishgen.

I doubt there is much in this insurance policy [my uncle was a junior doctor in
Vienna at the time, who then started again in the USA], but it was a matter of
principle. I also found my great-uncle's name on the Austrian Postsparkasse
account list [PSK]. I got a token 100 Euro for that plundered account. When it
was handed over to me in person, I burst into tears - Leo WOTTITZ had died in
Theresienstadt and although I never had the pleasure of meeting him, I could
"hear" his sarcastic comments. I recently found his brother Ernst had another
obscure Austrian Postsparkasse Overseas account. I expect I will get enough for
"wurstl", when that finally is settled. The link to these archived PSK accounts
is on our own website: Beginners Guide to Austrian-Jewish genealogy:

http://www.jewishgen.org/austriaczech/ausguide.htm#Postsparkasse

H. Postsparkasse Report

The Austrian Postsparkasse bank has published a report on assets held by Jewish
Austrians that were taken by the Nazis. The entire list of account-holders is
available on the web at http://www.psk.co.at/pskgruppe/report/index.html
(archived version).

BTW I know of others who have received unexpected *large* windfalls - so don't
give up, but join h-justice for advice >from those who have first-hand
experience.
