Re: Jakob Kohn Family of Baden #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Thank you Carole for this information. I also wrote about my search for Karl
KOHN >from Baden to this SIG quite a few years ago! How I traced him is really
a miracle. I only had his name and a six digit number as clues, plus the
possibility that he went to Shanghai. I have spoken to people who knew him and
his wife? Hermine [nee TAUBER] a French teacher, in Melbourne. I found the site
of his burial and I have some original papers belonging to him which were sent
to me. I was told he did marry Hermine - but I have not followed that through
as they had no children.

You see he had a daughter born in Slovakia on 6 June 1912, you and the family
knew nothing about. He gave her money and told her* to leave for the USA as she
was half-Jewish and in grave danger. Then he gave her this scrap of paper with
the six digit number. After that there was silence and they were never in touch
again. They presumed he had died in the holocaust. His close Jewish friend who
lived in the village was a Jakob STERN.

I was asked to trace him by his granddaughter now in Ohio. I told her yesterday
about the large family and she was in a state of happy "shock". I will give you
further personal details off-list.

The morale is that family secrets may eventually be revealed, even after 95
years and the family itself, may be the last to know.

Celia Male [U.K.]

*Footnote: She left her Catholic mother behind in Slovakia nr Trencin [Horna
Sluzia? and never saw her again. She died shortly after the end of WW2 so even
if Karl had tried to get in touch with her it would have been very hard.

Dear Genners,
Do you know brothers called Anthony and Arnold GREGORY in California. Their mother
was called Sally and they would now be in their late 50s. If so, please can you put
me in touch with them (via email).
Many Thanks,

Searching: KABRAN, Vilna -> Scranton, PA (1904) #general

mkabemail-misc@...
 

Here's what I could find on my great-grandfather, who died with the name Isidore
Kabran:
-He pronounced his name (with a Russian accent)Kay-brin -- the phonetic spelling.
-He was born in about 1883 in Eastern Europe.
-He left Vilna, Lithuania in 1903.
-He left Hamburg, Germany on a boat to England on July 23, 1904 under the name
Itzke Kabran originally >from Wilna on a boat called the Vesta.
-He sailed >from Southampton, United Kingdom to Ellis Island on the S.S.
Philadelphia. He left Southampton on July 29 and arrived in New York on Aug. 6,
1904.When he arrived at Ellis Island, they recorded his name as Kobran.
-After a few years, he moved to Scranton, PA, where he lived most of his life.
-He has at least two brothers (David and Larry) who arrived at Ellis Island after
he did. He might have more brothers and a sister in Vilna. My great uncle and
Isadore's youngest child, Stanley Kabran, documented Isadore's life. However, some
facts are unclear and contradictory with what I've found.

I'd like to know:
-What was Isadore's original last name in Vilna and how it was spelled. Stanley
wrote it was Kabron. The Ellis Island log reads Kobran. Now we spell it Kabran. It
might be named after a shtetl called Kabru, Kabrin,or Kabrn. -What happened to
Isadore's parents and family? -Any other details about the name Kabran (Kabron,
Kobrn, or however it was originally spelled).

I really have no more older relatives so my own history seems to stop with my
grandfather. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Sincerely,

M. Kabran

Re: Egmar Ruppert - Genealogist for Jewish Families of Northern Germany #germany

GSt <beagun27@...>
 

Recently, I have had an inquiry >from an active GerSIG member
about Egmar Ruppert's situation. Mr. Ruppert now fails to answer most
E-mails >from people who are seeking information >from his extensive data base.

I have been friends with Ruppert for many years, and was instrumental
in getting his data base onto JewishGen originally. Thus I know his situation
intimately. We consider him and his family as personal friends.

There are at least two major reasons why Ruppert no longer
responds to most people, except probably those with whom he has had a
long standing relationship, who have compensated him for work he has
performed, or who have paid for data >from his extensive researches.

I urged him in 1992 or 93 to start charging a modest fee, because he
had invested an enormous amount of time and money in compiling his data,
which started about 20 years ago as a search about the antecedents and
connections of a certain bicycle designer/builder.

In recent years, he has received many requests >from people who
wanted his data but were unwilling to pay for it. - Ruppert has a
very extensive investment in computers, both at home and at least one
PC at the archive in Detmoldt. Over the years, he has made innumerable
trips to the archive >from his home in Hildesheim, usually by train.

And, he has organized his data during innumerable hours at
his home. - Years ago, he did excellent work for some people who gave
him a commission and paid for the data. There were both small and
large projects which I know about. - Personally, I provided him with
all my data, including that about families >from Hildesheim, which
connected with some of the first ones he was interested in.
As a result, I have received more than I contributed and have been
privy to much of his work.

Egmar Ruppert has been working for a couple of years on re-organizing
and cross-indexing his data in a mode which he decided on. I have
known of it because he sent me samples for comment and correction.

I think his data base, "Jewish Families of Northern Germany", was
deleted >from JewishGen.org, probably because there was a disagreement
about how it should be updated. [That has been our loss !]

The second reason that he has not responded much is that he has had
serious health problems, including some most recently, which made
it difficult or impossible for him to work on his computers during
the past 6-8 months. He has not traveled to the archive for some
time, but tries to work on his data base re-organization. Incidentally,
he has been on disability retirement since I have known him (1991).

I know that very few people can get a response to email sent to Egmar Ruppert.
Even relatives of mine, whom I have referred to him in the past couple of years
have been unsuccessful, even though I have mentioned them in my letters to him.

Even so, I know that he is still processing data as much as possible.
I have received questions >from Mr. Ruppert about people I might know or
have contact with in recent months.

I hope, as Ruppert recovers his health and ability to work, he will
continue with his projects.

How the JewishGen community might eventually benefit from
Egmar Ruppert's work again in the future I cannot say.

Re: Jakob Kohn Family of Baden, and Englesrath family #austria-czech

Carole G. Vogel <carolevogel@...>
 

Hi,

I am the G-G-granddaughter of Jakob KOHN (1839-1927) of Baden. He had 15
children (not 13 as written in a previous entry). I have researched the
family extensively and the genealogy can be found on the FTJP. I have had an
entry for KOHN in Baden in the JGFF since 1998...

Jakob KOHN was buried in Mattersdorf, as was his first wife Anna (Netti)
(Ginendal) DEUTSCH (1845-1885), but his second wife, Esther Anna (Netti)
REISCH (1859-1929) the mother of Karl, was buried in the Baden Jewish
cemetery. Her gravestone was restored last year and I can provide a
photograph of both the restored stone and how it looked before the
Holocaust. I also have at least one other pre-war photograph >from the Baden
cemetery. I would like to add these to the photo database but need
directions to do so.

At least three of Jakob KOHN's sons are buried in Baden: Adolf (Abraham)
KOHN (1866-1928), Oskar KOHN (1894-1915), and Heinrich KOHN (1891-1920).
Jakob's nephew Jakob KOHN (1872-1924) the son of Meyer Wolf KOHN of Voeslau
is buried in Baden, and there are other KOHNs relations in the cemetery as
well.

If you have any connection to Baden, then purchasing Thomas E. Shaerf's book
"Juedisches Leben in Baden" is a must. It contains a treasure trove of
genealogical information and has many photographs, including a group photo
with Jakob KOHN and his son Adolf. Meticulously researched and documented,
the book provides a detailed history of the Baden Jewish community >from the
first Jews permitted to work in the city to the community's destruction in
the Holocaust.

Schaerf has even cataloged the Jewish-owned businesses in Baden and
surrounding towns, street by street, providing the owner's name, address,
and type of business as it appeared in 1938. There is a similar street by
street listing for houses owned by Jews and it shows who took ownership of
the property when it was Aryanized. (Considering Shaerf's ties to Baden --
he is president of the Jewish Community of Baden and is quite a visible
presence in the town -- the Aryanization identification was a gutsy move. It
is likely that descendants of many of these people live in the town or
somewhere else in Austria)

Finally, if the Englesrath family >from Baden mentioned in a previous post,
originally came >from Mattersdorf, Hungary (Mattersburg, Austria) I can
provide some information about this family.

Obermayer Award News Coverage #germany

Thanks to Yvonne Stern in Rio I've been alerted to an article in

ive%20rich%20Jewish%20past&intcategoryid=3D2&SearchOptimize=3DJewish%20News

(The website is that of the JTA "Global News Service of the Jewish People".)
The article begins:

"BERLIN, Feb. 7 (JTA) Lars Menk, a non-Jew, calls himself "meshuga."
Instead of taking a lucrative job in advertising, the Berliner
resident became a letter carrier so he'd have more time to pursue his
passion of researching German Jewish names.

Menk's 800-page volume with the etymology and geographical origins of 13,000
such names, collected on adventures across Germany, was published recently.

"I loved it," Menk said of his cross-country tour. "I took pictures, I
collected documents."

Menk, 45, was one of five people to receive this year's Obermayer German Jewish
History Awards in a ceremony at the Berlin Parliament House. The event was among
several in Germany marking Holocaust Remembrance Day on Jan. 27."

Other coverage of this year's awardees is in German and can be found

From Poland - family of Irving FINEMAN #general

Mariusz Bondarczuk <mariuszbondarczuk@...>
 

Hello

My name is Mariusz Bondarczuk. I am journalist. I live in Poland in town named
Przasnysz. I am looking for information about family of Irving FINEMAN (1893-1976),
American writer, the son of Joseph (a hat manufacturer) and Rebecca Rachel (BLANC)
Fineman (she was born in Myszyniec).

Especially I am looking for informations about sisters and brothers of Irving
Fineman and about his parents. The name of one of his sister was Dorothy. She was
married to an advertising agent named Ben WAXELBAUM, and they lived in New York
City.

His father Joseph was born in Przasnysz about 1863 and died in New York in 1936.
His last name in Przasnysz was probably MONKA/MONCARZ. He changed it in to Fineman
after his arrival to USA.
I found in http://www.italiangen.org informations about him: Fineman Joseph 73 y
June 11 1936 12952 Kings F555
May be is it possible to find the death certificate of Joseph Fineman and the
cemetery where is his grave? I hope that in USA there are living the children of
brothers and sisters of Irving Fineman and their families.

I would be very thankfully for any help in my research.

Best regards
