Steinberg family from Marijampol? #lithuania

Annemarie Jutel <jutel@...>
 

I am a new member of the Litvaksig list, and I am interested in the
STEINBERG/STZENBERG family. My great grandmother, Ester Rocha STZENBERG
(1849-1923) married Mozswa GOLDSZTEYN of Marijampol and moved to
Indianapolis in the early 1880s (exact date unknown). Her name figures
on a Marijampol birth certificate for twins Sanel and Abram in 1878. We
don't know anything about where Ester was born. Her brother Julius also
lived in the United States, and moved there before she did - to
Louisville, we believe in about 1870. He figures on the 1880 census as
being >from Poland, and on the 1900, as being >from Russia. We believed
that her father too moved to the US before her, but we have no record of
his name or where he might have lived.

If anyone has insights on this family, they would be appreciated.

Sincerely,

Fw: "Jews in Wuerzburg 1900-1945 " database now online #france

Naomi Teveth <ntevet@...>
 

Dear friends,

I am pleased to announce the launching of the database "Jews in Wuerzburg
1900-1945".
The database is a collective, biographical dicitionary about Jews living
in Wuerzburg in 1900-1945 and is extracted >from the two-volume book by

Reiner Straetz " Biographisches Handbuch Wuerzburger Juden 1900-1945".

The database contains over 10000 individuals. Each data set belongs to one
individual. If you find names of spouse, children, father, mother,
siblings, each one of these individuals will have his/her
own data set.

As in many instances parent generations are mentioned, the actual time
span will reach back into the 19th century, in fact the earliest birth date

I found was 1802.

Consider also that people came to study at Wuerzburg's University and at
the famous ILBA = Israelitische Lehrerbildungsanstalt (Jewish teachers

college), or married someone >from Wuerzburg, or moved there due to other

reasons.

Therefore you may also find data sets of Jews not born in Wuerzburg, but
in the surrounding rural communities and in other districts and countries.

This is why I invite everyone to check the database for the names and
towns you are researching.

Go to: http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Germany/Wurzburg.htm

As example, enter "ILBA" into a global text search of all fields and you
will get a list of abt. 300 people, mostly students at the ILBA and not
necessarily born in Wuerzburg.

Do the same by entering "Alsace" into a global text search of all fields.
You will receive a list of abt. 77 people, either born in Alsace or
married there or last known residence in Alsace, etc.
Try out "Paris" or "France" as well.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me.

At this point I would also like to thank the author, Mr. Reiner Straetz,
who gave me his permission to transform at least part of his

long-researched book into the online version for your benefit.
I have not included the biographies, only the genealogical data.

All the best,

Naomi Teveth in Tel Aviv

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

Shana Mink Katz

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.

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

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!

Kamenka #general

Marilyn Feingold <mrl@...>
 

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..
thanks for any information you can add about my Kamenka. Marilyn Feingold,
