Akmene Records #lithuania

apexsa <apexsa@...>
 

About 3 years ago, a cousin of a fellow Akmene researcher, Bruce Cohen,
visited Akmene and with a very good guide, came across an old man who
had ferreted away many documents pertaining to the Jewish Community in
Akmene during and around the 2nd World War. I am concerned that unless
someone does something soon to retrieve these documents, they will die
off with this old man, if they haven't done so already.

If anyone is interested, or has any ideas, please get hold of me and
perhaps we can get the ball rolling - assuming this old man is still
alive.

Best regards

ROOS family in Lyon, France #france

LRROBBINS@...
 

Good morning friends. I have been studying a ROOS family
in Beaumont, Texas. I found the immigration on one of them
as living in Lyon, France before coming to NYC. They are
the brothers Nathan F. ROOS born 17 May 1873 and Henry
born 19 May 1870 along with their wives and children. I have
known members of this family in the past. I believe they are
related to the ROOS family of Ingenheim in the Palatinate
which is a direct ancestral family of ours. I have one other
connection with the Ingenheim ROOS family and Lyon. Edmond MARX
born abt. 1879 in Koutzenhousen was deported >from Lyon in WW II
along with his daughter Lise. Edmond's mother was Caroline ROOS
of Ingenheim.

Does anyone have information on this family or any ROOS family
from or living in Lyon?
I appreciate your help.

INTRO - Seeking MANHEIM & HIRSCHLER #germany

Annemarie Jutel <jutel@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

I have just joined the group, and am doing research on the MANHEIM
family >from Ottensoos (Isaac - born 1830 - moved to San Francisco circa
1860 - married Estelle LOEB >from Alsace - first cousin of Zadoc KAHN),
and the HIRSCHLERS >from Herxheim.

Heinrich HIRSCHLER was born in 1834, and had 12 children: Leo, Ammanuel,
Isaak, Pauline, Amalie, Ludwig, Wilhelm, Philippine, Fridolina,
Maximilian, Eduard and David. David, my great-grand father, moved to
Utah in the early 1880s, and then San Francisco.

I wonder if anyone is interested in, or done any research on either of
these families.

My native language is English, but I speak and write native-calibre
French, and can assist in document translation if this might be useful
to any GerSig members.

Polish translation #general

lili susser <susserl@...>
 

Thank you Allan.

I have a Polish document on ViewMate. I can read it and understand it
perfectly, however need help with a word. How would you translate into
English the word "urzednik wydzialu".
Department registrar

I have received many probable translations but think yours sounds the most
likable. I think my father was an office clerk and CPA.
He finished Mantinband's bookkeeping school in Lodz and worked for years in
Vital Statistics

Re: Kamenets-Podolsk to Argentina 1903 #general

Carlos Glikson
 

Harvey Kaplan asked if someone travelling >from Rotterdam to Argentina in
1906 would have gone directly, or through the US. There certainly were
direct arrivals to Argentina (maybe after stops along the route - some
European ports plus several Brasilian ports or Montevideo in Uruguay). I
thought a couple of paragraphs I recently posted to the LatAm SIG on
arrivals to Argentina might help...

I mentioned that records for 1870-1881 are unaccounted for and that "Up to
1882, an estimated 30 to 40% of immigrants arrived through uncontrolled
river crossing, and no records ever existed. At any rate, massive Jewish
immigration began several years later... the mark being set by the arrival
of the Wesser during August 1889. [Jewish] Immigration in 1888 was estimated
in 50 persons. The Alliance Israelite Universelle helped members of 8
families reach Argentina. The estimation for 1889 is of 1000, including
hundreds on board the Wesser."

"The Wesser sailed >from Bremen. As Rob said, other ships arrived sailing
from Hamburg. But more ports were used over the decades leaving Europe for
South America. Rotterdam, Marseilles, Genoa, Trieste, Odessa to Turkey...,
Southampton, Liverpool, Cherbourg, Lisbon, Antwerp, the list goes on."

As for the indirect routes.... I contacted a researcher whose father was
marvelled with the looks of a couple who had made it to Galveston and were
visiting the old country later. They looked so rich, fine and elegant that
he decided that if he ever emigrated he wanted to go to Galveston.

When he was 15 or 16 he left on his own and reached the port (Hamburg? I do
not remember now) with his ticket fare. He asked and saw the ticket to
Buenos Aires was cheaper. So he said: "Give me a ticket to Buenos Aires".

He decided the savings would be more than enough to buy a bycicle, and pedal
to Galveston! At any rate, he later did very well.

Hope this helps!

Thanks to all of you who responded to my Kamenka request. My Kamenka in
Moldova on the Dneister River. I have seen close, but different, latitude
and longitude information for Kamenka. It was part of Bessarbia. It is
across the river >from Vertujeni, an agriculatural colony. Kamenka was known
for its grapes which were believed, I am told, to have curative powers for
people with TB. My grandfather travelled to surrounding towns of
Rifrivnetsa, Rezena, Wartejne, Ympela, Tulchin, Odessa, Balta and Kishinev..

useful databases at your library #general

James Gross <larklane@...>
 

Hello,
During the winter months, it may not be feasible for
you to venture out into the cold to do genealogy research.
You may want to look into whether online databases are
accessible via your local library. Usually these databases,
if remotely accessible outside the library, simply require
your library card barcode.
One of the more useful databases are Proquest, which
allows the researcher access to a number of newspapers
and periodicals. There appear to be several proquest
packages and you should try out the access to find out
what newspapers are accessible to you.
If you have access to your local library and county library,
I would get a library card for each of them. In Maryland
for example,residents have access to over 6 separate county
libraries in addition to many local libraries.
