Dear Fellow Yankee Doodle Genealogists,

Here are more of the states where you live or are researching.

We are currently up to 34. Only 16 more and we cover the entire US.

AL, AZ, CA, CT, CO, DE, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, ID, IL, IO, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI,
MN, MO, MS, NC, NJ, NM, NY, OH, PA, SC, TX, VA, VT, WA, WI .

If any one else cares to respond, (or if I missed anyone) please let me know
and I'll add them.

Someone suggested that we also look into where our ancestors came >from when
they emigrated in the 1700's and 1800's. A good idea for the future.

We are still looking for a Webmaster for the Early American Sig. Any
Volunteers?

ROSENGART Family of Buttenhausen, Wuerttemberg, SCHWAB Family of Worblingen, Baden #germany

Ralph Baer <RalphNBaer@...>
 

In 1926, Eduard SCHOEPFLICH, my great-grandmother's second cousin, placed
the following ad (in German) in the old Jewish genealogical publication
Juedische Familien Forschung: "Who knows ancestors and descendants of
Abraham Samuel born 1761 in Worblingen near Konstanz, a branch later called
ROSENGART, another SCHWAB, a third unknown?"

I am still interested in the answer to this question.

Samuel Seelig SCHWAB (Hebrew name was Nataniel!) and his wife Gella in
Worblingen, Baden (near Radolfzell and the Bodensee [Lake Constance]) are
known to have had at least the following two children:

1) Abraham Samuel ROSENGART about 1761 Worblingen - 17 August 1828
Buttenhausen, married 1792 to Sofie (Fanny, Feile, Veiele) GUGGENHEIM about
1766 Worblingen - 1 October 1838 Buttenhausen

and

2) Selig (Seligmann) Samuel SCHWAB about 1772 Worblingen - 20 June 1830
Worblingen, trader of iron and cut goods, married to Therese (Braunle)
NEUBURGER about 1782 - 4 January 1842 Worblingen

Samuel Seelig SCHWAB was born about 1720 and apparent died between 1803 and
1808 in Worblingen. His wife, Gella, died before that. Samuel's father,
Seelig, was supposedly born about 1690 in Ichenhausen or Huerben in
Bavarian Swabia and apparently died there between 1761 and 1772. I am
interested in anything about these people and earlier ancestors.

My ancestor, Abraham Samuel, moved to Buttenhausen (now part of Muensingen)
in 1792 and assumed the name ROSENGART there, apparently because he
cultivated roses as a hobby.

He had the following children:

1) Laemle ROSENGART 19 August 1793 Buttenhausen - 27 February 1857
Buttenhausen, married 1. 1821 Buttenhausen to Helene (Hindele) ROSENHEIM 15
January 1798 Jebenhausen - 20 May 1836 Buttenhausen, married 2. 7 February
1837 to Babette KURZ 21 August 1810 Gailingen - 12 March 1892 Buttenhausen
(Laemle and Helene were my third great-grandparents.)

2) Karoline (Keile, Kehle) ROSENGART 20 July 1797 Buttenhausen - 21
September 1864 Buttenhausen, married 18 November 1820 Buttenhausen to Maier
ADLER (brother of 3.) 2 July 1795 Buttenhausen - 10 March 1873 Buttenhausen

3) Helene (Eva, Hefele) ROSENGART 17 March 1799 Buttenhausen - 13 October
1873 Buttenhausen, married 2 January 1827 Buttenhausen to Lazarus (Laemmle,
Liwerle, Lieberle) ADLER (brother of 2.) 6 December 1798 Buttenhausen - 21
August 1854 Buttenhausen

4) Seligmann ROSENGART about 1801 Buttenhausen - about 1810 Buttenhausen

5) Josef ROSENGART 19 November 1803 Buttenhausen - 22 August 1885 Muenchen,
married 29 August 1833 Buttenhausen to Nanette KAHN (sister of 6.) 8 March
1812 Altenstadt an der Iller - 6 April 1881 Ulm

6) Samuel ROSENGART 9 August 1808 Buttenhausen - 14 August 1860 at the
cattle market in Zwiefelten, innkeeper, married 12 April 1839 to Karoline
KAHN (sister of 5.) 12 November 1817 Altenstadt an der Iller - 8 January
1899 Heilbronn

I am interested in adding to what I already know about these families.

Selig Samuel SCHWAB had the following known children. I know very little
else.

1) Gella SCHWAB about 1807 Worblingen

2) Neilla SCHWAB between 1809 and 1813 Worblingen

3) Ella SCHWAB between 1809 and 1813 Worblingen

4) Samuel SCHWAB 30 August 1815 Worblingen, married 28 February 1854
Worblingen to Henriette ROTHSCHILD 7 February 1828 Worblingen

5) Dusette (Theresia) SCHWAB 25 April 1819 Worblingen - 6 February 1887
Gailingen, married 1. to Josua WEIL, married 2. 26 March 1857 Worblingen to
Salomon LISSBERGER 7 October 1811 - 13 February 1914 Gailingen, teacher and
cantor in Gailingen

6) Rosina SCHWAB 22 October 1821 Worblingen

Any additions are appreciated.

Heinz Feldmann #germany

Yvonne Adler <shanghai1@...>
 

I'm helping a German Internet acquaintance of mine, Waldemar BOEHM,
whom I met on the Oberschlesien-L@Genealogy.net discussion group is doing
research into a member of his family >from the pre-War Silesian city of
Gleiwitz/Glivice, named Heinz FELDMANN.

The FELDMANN family, according family lore, came >from the Ruhr town of
Wattenschied by Bochum and moved to Gleiwitz/Glivice sometime in the early
20th century. Mr. Boehm believes that they were subsequently murdered in
a concentration camp.

Their son, however, Heinz FELDMANN, married into the non-Jewish Boehm
family, is believed to have emigrated to Rio de Janeiro.

Mr. Boehm's question on the Silesian news group dealt with his trying to
trace his relative, Heinz FELDMANN. I answered the query and offered some
suggestions such as looking through the Jewish Registers ("Matrikeln")of
Wattenschied and/or Gleiwitz/Glivice and the German Minority Census of
1938/39.

Would anyone have any further suggestions as to where we might look to
find out more about:

1. the Feldmann family and
2. what happened to Heinz Feldmann of Gleiwitz and Rio.

Vaccinations in the 1850's ? #germany

Naomi Teveth <ntevet@...>
 

Dear Gersig friends,
I have a school report on one of my ancestors, who was born on the
11 Dec 1857.

The personal details on this ancestor include the following :

"geimpft am 16. Juni 1858"

which translates to : vaccinated on 16th June 1858.

I was astonished to see that vaccinations were done at that time already
( I am really ignorant in this subject).

Can anyone enlighten me as to which vaccinations were done in the 1850's
and against what illness ?

Thanks in advance and best regards,

Naomi Teveth in Tel Aviv ntevet@netvision.net.il

Eagle Junior High School/NYC Newspapers #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

This is in response to a posting which asked where the Eagle Junior High
School was located in 1927.

The school was located in the Bronx, and, through the ProQuest newspaper
database, I discovered several New York Times articles relating to this
school.

One, >from 1927 with the title: "Stuyvesant Orator Wins Among 4,500,"
details a writing contest open to New York City high school and junior
high school students. It goes on to mention that "the Eagle Junior High
School, the Bronx, was represented at the all-junior borough finals by
Miss Lillian POLLACK who chose the subject, "Marshall and the
Constitution."

I hope this enlightens the writer of the original posting (whose
information I neglected to save) and also serves as a reminder of how
researching genealogy through newspaper sources--and by that I mean
articles, not just obituaries and marriage announcements--can provide a
wealth of information.
(Imagine if "Miss Lillian Pollack" was your grandmother, and had never
shared this information with you!)

I have found my relatives listed in everything >from the "Yesterday's
Fires" column--detailing conflagrations on the lower east side in the
early 1900s--to a piece on a burglary in the uptown apartment of my great-
uncle who was a jeweler, and had his safe robbed while he vacationed in
the Catskills in the 1930s, to a scholarship awarded to a cousin in 1928
to attend Columbia University!

Even though ProQuest is a paid subscription service (available through
various sources) there are some libraries which offer it through their
computer terminals free of charge, and one can do a search by word or
phrase. And, of course, there is always the tried and true
searching-through-microfilm method. Either way, this research is a useful
adjunct to the typical collection of names and dates, and an excellent way
to "flesh" out the history of our families.

Hi, all!

According to two granddaughters of Zara Piel Glaser (1856-1946) of
Tryskiai and Brooklyn, NY:

Zara (my great-grandmother) drank tea with cherry preserves in the
bottom of the glass. At 4 P.M. each day she went into her room filled
with plants and canaries, closed the door, took care of the plants and
the birds, and had tea. She asked to be left alone unless there was a
fire. (She bore 14 children; 11 reached adulthood.)
