Hans WOLFF in Brazil #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

This is for my wife's MARX family tree. (The family originated in
Buttenhausen, Germany.) In the mid-1930's, Hans WOLFF emigrated >from
Stuttgart, Germany to Brazil, and was since then lost to his family. He
would have been born circa 1915 to Selma nee MARX and Theodore WOLFF. His
brother was Fritz. No one alive knows what city he settled in. I imagine
his is a fairly common name. In fact, several years ago I found several men
with that name in a Brazilian phone directory. Does this name &
circumstance ring any bells with our Brazilian cousins?

Best, Steve Orlen
Tucson, AZ

PANEL ON WALL OF HONOR, ELLIS ISLAND #ukraine

bob rubin <bob_rubin@...>
 

My SILVERMAN/SILBERMAN/ZILBERMAN Family is >from Izyaslavl, Russia. I found a
couple >from that city on the Wall of Honor on the Ellis Island website. They
were on Panel 407. Also, on Panel 407, were other people with the same
surname, but they were >from various places: Romania, Lithuania, Russia,
Poland. Does anyone know if people with the same surname on a particular
panel are all related or are people listed in alphabetical order by last
name?

Thanks.

Russian translation needed/History of photographers' studios? #general

LISA BETROS <lk313@...>
 

Could someone translate the printing on the following photographs posted on
Viewmate?
VM 6948
VM 6949
VM 6950

I'd like to know the name of the photographer's studio, its location, and
any clues as to the dates of the photos. Even if someone can discern a
general date -- for example, if it is possible to tell if the photos were
taken in the first or last half of the 19th c. -- it would be helpful.

Has anyone researched and catalogued the history of photographer's studios
such as these?

My elderly aunt gave me these photos and told me that it is most likely
that they are of relatives of my grandfather, Louis FALKOFF. She can't
remember who gave them to her.

Louis FALKOFF/Leibe FALKOV, b. 1881, in Ludza, Latvia (Liutzen, Russia),
or nearby - > Brooklyn, New York in 1909 - > Canton, Ohio in 1920, d. 1954
in Cleveland, OH (He was in England or Scotland before coming to New
York, and in Washington state at some point in time, but I don't know the
dates.)

I'll post another email on the Falkoff family.

Please reply privately and I'll post a summary of the responses on the
digest.

Thank you.

Robert John Aumann, 2005 Winner of the Nobel Prize for Economics #general

Nick Landau <N.Landau@...>
 

I have just heard >from GerSig that Robert John Aumann has won the Nobel
Prize for Economics.

Given that this is a genealogy group a bit of a nachas is presumably
allowed.

We share a common greatgrandfather, Marcus Israel Landau - he is descended
from the first wife - and I am descended >from his second wife.
We are half-second cousins.

My father has just told me that when my maths lecturer uncle visited him a
few years ago in Israel Jonny Aumann's wife became exasperated that they
talked mathematics all evening!

Extermination Pits in the Konin Region, Poland (before Chelmno) #general

Ada Holtzman
 

I have posted a new page with information about extermination pits in the
Konin region of Poland, where following communities were murdered by the
Germans in WWII (before Chelmno, first German extrmination camp in Poland
started to be operational):

Golina Grodziec Kleczew Konin Kramsk Pyzdry Rychwal Rzgow Skulsk Slesin
Slupca Wilczyn Zagorow.

The two Polish researchers who gave me the information and whom I thank from
the bottom of my heart, Krzysztof Gorczyca & Zdzislaw Lorek, working in the
Chelmno excavation site for the Konin regional museum, promised they will
draw a map which will be posted as well in the future.

Bilki #ukraine

Heshbare@...
 

My mother's family was born in Bilke which was in Hungry in the late 1800's.
It is now in Ukraine and the name is either Bilki or Bilky. How do I get
vital information on the people who were born, married, and died in this town. I
know it is in the Sub Carpathain Basin.

Thank you,

Hank Greenberg

I would like to say a very sincere 'thank you' to all those wonderful
people who translated the tombstone inscriptions I recently posted on
ViewMate.

I have received a lot of help >from the group in the past, but this was
the first occasion people started to write to me before I had actually
posted a message requesting their help.

Once again - many thanks to all of you.

Re: Younger siblings marrying in-laws' siblings #general

גירון
 

Hello,
There was no problem with 2 sisters/brothers marriying another 2
sisters/brothers , in the way David Edelman describes.
in fact my GGmother -GGfather were the same:

My Ggmother Yanka WEISZBERGER ( born 1870) married Jakab CZIESLER ( born 1866)
while his brother Ferenc CZIESLER maried her sister Rozsa WEISZBERGER ( born 1879)
This all happend in Austro-Hungarian empire.

I don't know of any Jewish low against it , and it seems logical in the
conditions David described. Don't forget that if the families were very
religious it often happene that the marrige was arranged.
And what is better then a family we already know?
