Vienna research needed #austria-czech

Harvey Finberg <hjfinberg@...>
 

If anyone living in or visiting Vienna has time to do some research in
Lehnmann's Addressverzeichnis at either the Austrian National Library or
Gasometer (Stadt und Landesarchiv), I would appreciate the assistance. I
can reciprocate with research at the US National Archives, US Holocaust
Museum or US National Archives or we can discuss other terms.

Fw: The names Israel and Sara #austria-czech

Florence & Henry Wellisch <kelwel@...>
 

While going through the birth records of Kolmar in Posen, now known as
Chodziez in Poland I found 7 children of Jacob and Charlotte Rotholtz. They
were born between 1876 and 1886. In the case of Leib, born in 1876, the name
of Israel, and the following handwritten note, translated >from the German
was added:
Based on Paragraph 172, Section 5 and the decision of the district
commissioner (Herr Landrat), the permission for registration of the second
name "Israel" is hereby given. Kolmar, 27. II. 1941
In the case of the daughter Fritze, born in 1884, the name of Sarah and a
similar handwritten note dated 31.3.1941.was added.
The other 5 children do not have the additional name Israel or Sara added.
I have done a lot of research in the Vienna Jewish records and found many
birth and marriage entries, dated 1939 with a stamp indicating acceptance of
the name of Israel or Sara. I always thought this stamp indicated that the
person would be in Vienna at the time, but now I have been told that this
may not necessarily be so. Is this correct?

From: "Caroline" <cfb@pobox.com>

X-Message-Number: 1

Hi,
I'm researching William Henry ADLER, born in Germany around 1845, moved
to
South Africa as a young man, and later moved to England with his young
family.

However, I also know that William had a brother with him when he moved
from
Germany to SA and I'm trying to discover his brother's name, also where
abouts in Germany they came from. In my searches I have found a Henry
Adler
of a similar age, who took the same route - Germany/SA/England (although
he
actually returned to SA after 3 years). I've also found an Isidor
Adler,
again of a similar age, taking the same route and with children named
William and Henry amongst others. Each of these ADLERs lived in London.

(William gave one of his son's the middle name, Isidor)

I was wondering whether this sounded a familiar story to anyone. Was it
a
normal route for German Jews to take around 1860/70 - to go to South
Africa,
gain naturalisation there and then move to England (London)?

I know that both Henry and Isidor ADLER were >from Lubeck, Germany but
have
struggled to find William's naturalisation papers so far (just the
minutes
of the process). So I'm not sure where in Germany he was >from but wonder
if
these ADLER families were related - or if it was just a common trek to
take
at that time.

(They do also all seem to be living on private means - explorers and
merchants/financiers/business men).

On searching the SA archives, I realise that ADLER wasn't an uncommon in
their records.

Tannicht+Steinigwolmsdorf and surname changes #belarus

Irene Salazar
 

I am new to all this. My grandfather was Harry STONE (b. 1887)
His parents: Barney; Alle (nee SCHWARTZ)

*Seeking where born*
1917 US draft card says born in Tanict? or ? (hard to read).
There was a shtetl Tannicht (sp?) in Germany, not Belarus.
Supposedly "raised" in Germany; but lived in Grodno gubernia.

*Need help with name change*
Supposedly name before was SAGENDORF (sp?). Has been a dead end.
Cannot figure why it wasn't STEIN if he changed to Stone.
Tannicht was next to Steinigwolmsdorf.
Could that explain SAGENDORF and be my "STONE"?

Any advice at all appreciated. I know nothing!
I cannot seem to do anything without knowing his shtetl in (then) Russia.
