Does anyone know how to begin finding records for Jews >from Lomza Poland
sent by the Russians to Kazakhstan during the War?
The returned to Lomza where they originated after having lived in Russia but
then got lost, maybe Australia or America, but
not confirmed.
It is assumed that they survived. Does anyone have any suggestions how to
proceed?

For genealogical information about the LANDAU family of Dresden, see
the discussion in Walter Fales, "The Descendants of Wolf Fales: A
Chronicle of the Feilchenfeld Family as of June 1950" (New York,
1990). This book would certainly mention whether the LANDAU family
members were Levi'im.

A copy of "The Descendants of Wolf Fales..." is available at the
Dorot Jewish Division of the New York Public Library or at the
Center for Jewish History (both in New York), where I found this
copy. I do not recall whether "The Descendants of Wolf Fales..." was
in the Leo Baeck Collection or the collection of the American Jewish
Historical Society; both, however, are housed in the Center for
Jewish History.

I hope this helps,

INTRO BERNSTEIN and ISAACS Families #unitedkingdom

Richard Cooper <ricooper@...>
 

Re your search for ISAACS and BERNSTEIN families posted on 11/8/05:

My great-grandparents were Wolf BERNSTINE (also BERNSTEINE
and BORENSTIN) and Annie (Toibe Hinde) MATELEVITCH.
Wolf was born in Warsaw in 1856, son of Boruch and Rachel BORENSTEJN.
Annie was born in Warsaw in 1859, daughter of
Ephraim MATELEVITCH and Louise GOTTSCHINSKI.

Wolf and Annie had 9 children:
Abraham (1880, Warsaw)
Rachel (1882, Paris)
Jacob (1883, London)
David (1885, London)
Samuel (1886, Huntingdon)
Henry (1888, London)
Alfred (1891, Bramley, Surrey)
Frank (1899, Southsea, Hampshire)(my grandfather)
Dora (1902, Southsea - died infant)

In the late 19th century more Jews lived in Warsaw than in any other
city on earth apart >from New York, so the similarity of our BERNSTEIN
names (Rachel, Annie, Barnett = Boruch) may be coincidence.
The clincher would be if your BERNSTEINs were Levites, as was my
Wolf BERNSTINE,

Good luck in your research,
Yours sincerely

Request for translation of 1926 letter #romania

Martin Fischer
 

Hi everyone,

Many thanks for previous translations and other help that members of this
mailing list have very generously provided.

I have posted another letter in Romanian, written in 1926 by a member of the
LANDMANN family, that I would like to have translated into English. It is
probably >from Sylvia Landmann in Bucharest, Romania, to her uncle Herman
Landman in Kansas City, Missouri.

It is on three pages at:

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6659

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6661

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6660

(I apologize for any error in the order of the pages. It is a little
confusing because I don't understand Romanian, but I can see that two pages
have the same date while two pages have the signature of the same letter
writer.)

Thanks again for your help.

Re: 1910 Census puzzle #germany

I did some quick Googling on the term and came up with a couple of
interesting links discussing this exact issue:

http://mailman.acomp.usf.edu/pipermail/genealib/2001-December/003288.html


The end result, as researched by a Librarian/Researcher for the Great Falls
Genealogical Society, is that it most likely "has no valuable meaning
for genealogists". Regards,

Professor Ruth Leizerowitz in Berlin, Germany has done a large amount of
research pertaining to the Memel records.

Her website at http://www.leiserowitz.de/Juden/index.html contains a lot of
information and data about the Memel records for the city of Memel as well
as for the Memel District. All of it is in German but much of it is also in
