Alice LAVELL #general

David Priever
 

Dear Fellow Jewishgenners,

An early Happy Chanukah to everyone!!!

I am trying to help a fellow genealogist in
Canada find someone. Her aunt, Alice LAVELL (born ca.
1910) was listed up until 2000 in the Bronx White
Pages. I went to the listed address. Her name is
still on the resident directory. I spoke to
the building superintendent who recalls
she had a home attendant and was moved to a
nursing home. around 1999-2000. My gut feeling
(I've been wrong before) is that this superintendant
was giving me accurate information.

I already had the New York City death indices
from 1999 to the present searched. Nothing.
a) she could have died outside of the 5 boroughs of NYC;

b) she died out of New York State;

c) she is still alive and lives in a nursing home.

The Alice LAVELL listings in the SSDI are all
accounted for. Bronx County Probate records
have already been searched.

Is the answer staring me in the face?
Am I missing something? Do I unfortunately
concede "defeat"?

The person for whom I am doing this is desirous
of rekindling contact with this aunt who
married into the family.

Your ideas and feedback will be very greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

David Priever

Re: The ROSENBERG Family of Lichenroth (Hessen-Nassau) #germany

Let me add to what Prof Esterson wrote. Besides for Gump ROSENBERG, my
great-grandmother Amalie CAHN nee SCHMIDT also had a great-grandfather
named Gumpel EISEMANN. By tracking through all of Gustavs in both of
these families named for them in Germany, and all of the Garys, Gordons,
and even a Gad in Israel, named for the Gustavs, I was able to determine
that Gump ROSENBERG had the Hebrew name Mordochai while Gumpel EISEMANN
had the Hebrew name Ephraim.

JGS of Tampa Bay Meeting Sunday, December 14, 2003 #general

Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay
Meeting Sunday, December 14, 2003

"...Remembering the Kindertransports"

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay will meet at 2:00 PM Sunday
December 14, 2003 at Gulf Coast Jewish Family Services, 14041 Icot Blvd.,
Clearwater, Florida. The topic for the meeting will be a video "My Knees
Were Jumping, Remembering the Kindertransports". The film is narrated by
Joanne Woodward. With tremendous courage, a group of Jews and Quakers saved
the lives of thousands of children >from Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia
and Poland between December 1938 and August 1939. Most of the children
never saw their parents again. Filmmaker Melissa Hacker reveals the
dramatic story of her Vienna born mother, the Academy Award nominated
costume designer, Ruth Morley.

*Back to by popular demand*: Beginning at 1:30 PM (30 minutes prior to the
video program) the main program will be preceded by a beginner's workshop.
Following the video, there will be questions and answers for individuals
doing research, and our new library materials will be available for review
and utilization.

The Jewish Genealogical Society's library and research resources, including
both printed materials and computer access, along with guided assistance
and information exchange >from experienced researchers will be available to
participants at the meeting. Our library is growing and is quickly becoming
one of the most important reasons to come to the meetings. Many of the
items in the library are impossible to find in the local libraries, and if
they are reference only elsewhere, they can not be gotten through
inter-library loans.

For further information on the organization or for directions to the
meeting call Mark Baron at 727-842-5789 or Sally Israel at 727-343-1652.

Re: Warsaw Gymnasium and school records #warsaw #poland

Kris Murawski <kris.murawski@...>
 

"Gimnazjum" is not the name of a school. High school education in Poland
was divided in four years of "gimnazjum" followed by two years of "liceum".
You would have to know which "gimnazjum" in Warsaw your father attended.
The postal address of Warsaw University is Uniwersytet Warszawski,
Krakowskie Przedmiescie 26/28, 00-927 Warszawa.


My father attended the Warsaw Gymnasium in the 1920s. Can anyone tell me
where it was located and does it still exist? Did a Gymnasium offer
elementary and secondary education or just secondary/high school
education?
Can anyone refer me to a picture of it? Where could I locate my father's
school records? He also attended the University of Warsaw in the 1930s.
Does
anyone have an email or postal address for their school records archives
department?
Thank You,
George Mason (Mozeson)

Back in February, Garry Mokotoff sent the Warszawa Research Group the
following:

"From: Gary Mokotoff - Optimum [mailto:mokotoff@optonline.net]=20

In 1997 I went to Warsaw and one of the sites I visited looking for
documentation of Mokotow relatives was the archives of the University of
Warsaw. At that time, they were in the process of computerizing the =
names
of every student who attended the University >from about 1915 to the =
present.
The only Mokotow in the database was a Riwka Mokotow. =20

The information they have in their archives can be very valuable. It
includes the application for admission which includes such information =
as
address and names of parents.

It also included a picture of the student.

Many of their Jewish students were murdered in the Holocaust and the =
picture
may be the only surviving portrait of the person.

I doubt if they would respond to mail inquiries, but if you are going to
Warsaw, it might be worth a stop at the archives. The lookups are quick
because it is computerized. (I seem to recall they even had wildcard =
search
capability.)"

I note that the University of Warsaw has a pretty slick - and
English-language - website at =

There are email addresses aplenty for all sorts of departments, =

Zgierz #lodz #poland

Dear Researchers,

For those of you who are researching Zgierz, Poland I think you'll be
interested in this contact in Poland. The director of the Museum there is
willing and eager to provide information and share historical documents
about the Jews in this town. His contact information is Marcin (Martin)
Czaplicki at marcin.czaplicki@polkomtel.com.pl
I heard >from Marcin once before when he noticed a few errors about the
identity of some picture postcards listed on the LARG site. He seems very
eager to gather and share information for his town of Zgierz.

I was working for a long while with the director of the Belchatow
Museum--until his sudden and untimely death at 54 years of age. He never
asked for payment---was happy to research the history of the Jews in
Belchatow and thrilled the information was put on the ShtetLinks site. He
provided me with old photographs, articles, Jewish election and synagogue
lists, etc. I hope you can have the same enriching experience by working
with Marcin.

Let me know. I would hate to miss this opportunity to gain information
about the town.

Regards,
Roni
