Dr Ettlinger's first name #germany

Sarah&Laurent Kassel <kassells@...>
 

Christopher is right.
Dr Ettlinger's German first name was Fritz. He did not stay in Germany during
WWII. He moved to Nahariya a (then) Jewish German town in the north of Israel. He
then assumed the Hebrew name of Shlomo. After WWII he came back frequently to
Germany for his research and for dealing with health issues of his son.

Nevertheless, his work can be found in Jerusalem (both at the Archive of the
History of the Jewish People and at the Jewish National and University
Library), Frankfurt (Jewish Museum) and the Leo Baeck Institute, NY, has a
microfilm of this neatly type-written document. The work is chronological by death
date. The index is alphabetical -finding SPANGENTHAL should be easy. Best regards,

Ettlinger's Ele Toldot #germany

Gerrard Salomon <jerrysalomon@...>
 

Gersigers, just a comment, although I am not familiar
with the anotations, on the item under "Jb". Probably
what it means is Judenbrunnenrohrbuch, which possibly
could pertain to a tax collected on the individual use
of the quantity of water which ran out of the Jews'
fountain faucet. Conceivably the list was made up of
names of households.

Fritz Ettlinger was Shlomo Ettlinger. "Fritz" = Friedrich was a
common German name used by men whose Jewish name was Shlomo or Sholom,
because of the similar meaning.

There was a Shereshevsky group at one time when Amy Levinson was still
alive. Most were >from Taurage, Lithuania, but a number were >from other

Also, it would help if you would give a bit more info on the names of your
ancestors or their dates so that someone might be able to connect with them.

Eve Line Blum in France may know the present members of the Shereshevsky
group or, at least, keep in touch with them, as I no longer do.

And no, I am not related to the Shereshevsky family, I was just working on
Taurage families.

Dear Genners,
Was Ostroleka, Poland part of Russian/Poland?
I have been trying to search my MEYER, KAFKA, KUPFER
family back to Europe, but up to now have had no more
specific information other than their origin being
Russian/Poland. In 1900 Manhattan census, they list
origin as Russia, 1910: Poland, and 1920:
Russian/Poland. Found information on the Mt. Zion
website...(Thank you for all who posted the
information about this.)Joseph Benjamin buried at Mt.
Zion with the Fortschritt Lodge (same as my family)
listed as being >from Ostroleka, Poland. Could this be
my first real lead???
Thank you as always for the incredible help you
are always.

Unfortunately, I know of no extant photos of my grandmother and two of my
great-grandparents, all of whom arrived in New York between 1903 and 1907.
My grandmother visited Europe at least once thereafter.
Did the US government or any local governmental agency require any personal
photos of residents or returning residents that would have then been kept
in government files?

Ignatz MARKOWITZ from 'Khareentch' ->Cleveland #general

Dov & Varda <yknow@...>
 

I offered some assistance to a childhood friend in finding the former shtetl
of her parents. It turns out that I'm looking for a needle in a haystack,
because there are so many hits on shtetlseeker with soundalike names.
My friend pronounced the name of the town as written in the subject line
of this message, and I know that her parents lived in the Carpathian
Mountains. In fact, my friend's parents' main method of transporation in the
old country was skiing, and her late father worked for the Resistance,
carrying messages on skis to contacts at the border. After her family came
to Cleveland, her dad, a tailor, used to pick up extra cash by hiring
himself out as a ski instructor on the weekends .
I have no idea if this information is enough for anyone to venture a guess
as to the location of the shtetl; I'm a Litvak with no knowledge of this
area. Also, I don't know how the pronounciation goes on the C with the
smiling curve over it (I obviously don't even know what the accent is
called!).
Any help will be greatly appreciated. My friend travels to Eastern Europe
on a regular basis for business and would like to visit the shtetl of her
late parents, who were Survivors of Auschwitz.

As a statistician and a former Census analyst 6.4% seems much more likely as
any exercise which had a 64 per cent undercount would be of little use.

Overcounting in census #general

Stan Golembe <ocstan@...>
 

Dear Genners

There has been much discussion about people who may have not been counted in
the census. I have a story that goes in the opposite direction.

At the time of the 1930 census my family lived in New York City but my
father's business took him elsewhere for periods of time so he maintained a
residence at the business site.
On April 8, the census taker visited our apartment in New York. My father
must have been away and my mother gave the family information which included
my father. On April 19 another census taker visited my father's other
residence and someone there reported on all the residents at that building.
As a result, my father is listed and counted twice in the 1930 census.
