Do You Know - Louis "GREER", Los Angeles, CA USA/Icchok Lipa GRYNBAUM, Sosnowiec, POLAND #general

Michael McTeer <mcteer@...>
 

It is times like this that I realize what a poor genealogist I would make.
And a sense of wasted years.

I have known of my cousin Louis "GREER" for a few years now and have
reported of him here. He was born Icchok Lipa GRYNBAUM, 27 Jul 1923,
Sosnowiec, Poland, s/o Izrael David GRYNBAUM and Golda LENCZNER. He had at
least one sister Brucha GRYNBAUM, born 28 Feb 1925, Sosnowiec. Golda is the
d/o Litman Isaac and Gitel Rywke (GLIKSMAN) LENCZNER of Szczekociny, Poland.
Golda died 15 Aug 1943, Sosnowiec. I do not know what became of her husband,
daughter or if there might have been other children. Golda is the sister of
my great grandmother, Liba. After the war, Golda's brother, David LENTZNER
(1894 - 1967), went to Europe looking for relatives and found only Louis
returning to the US with him. Louis had a numbered tattoo so apparently he
was at Auschwitz.

I have Louis's death certificate, 11 Aug 1967, giving his address on Delita
Dr., Woodland Hills, CA, noting a wife "Ronnie" whom I was unable to locate.
That he worked for "Landis". For whatever reason, I was under the impression
that he had no children. However this past week, I received something that I
should have obtained long ago; his Los Angeles Times obit. This names his
wife and two children!!! Apparently a son and a daughter (whom I hesitate to
name as they are probably still living). I believe I have tentatively id'd
them with the daughter being born in CA in 1955 and the son being born in CA
in 1960. Further the son maybe the GREER who married a WENTZEL in 1980 (Los
Angeles Co.). Ronnie's surname maybe ACK. Apparently Louis and Ronnie were
NOT married in CA. Ronnie's parents maybe Frank ACK (1884-1972) and Dorothe
(WEBBER) ACK (1894-1985).

Would I be correct in believing it a bit unusual for the Masons to have been
involved in the funeral service of Louis (Hillside Memorial Park)? The
particular 'lodge' located in Santa Monica has an active website with a
number of Jewish surnames. An initial report >from them reports Louis was not
an member of their lodge and the service was probably performed on behalf of
another lodge.

If you know of this family, please contact me privately.

Thanks,

Austrian town (Kotzuijur?) #general

Susan
 

The ship's manifest for my father's brother lists a town name in
Austria that looks like *Kotzuijur*. I doubt that is right, but it is
difficult to read. Does that look familiar to anyone?

SCHOCHER #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Is anyone familiar with a SCHOCHER family who came originally >from Telsiai,
Lithuania, to South Africa. They may have also come >from other towns in
Lithuania or >from Riga.

I was told that there was a SCHOCHER family who owned a furniture store in
Cape Town and was related to the SACHAR family there as well. Evidently,
SCHOCHER is another variant spelling of SACHAR.

The reason I am posting this is that I have found a living branch of the
SCHOCHER family who left Telsiai and settled in Estonia and now live in
Israel.

Thanks for any assistance.

birth certificate information look up NYC #general

Debby Gincig Painter
 

Due to a backing up problem with my computer I have lost a few important
documents and files. I was hoping that someone might be able to look up
a birth certificate for me in NYC - all I need is confirmation of
mother and father's name (Wiliam and Lena) , an actually certificate is
not needed.

Yiddish Theatre in New York City in the 20th century #yiddish

hennynow
 

Let me express my appreciation to Steven LASKY for his splendid compilation
of the history of the Yiddish Theatre in NYC.

As a relative of Samuel "Zuny" MAUD, I wish to correct the spelling of his
name, which is erroneously shown as "Zuni Moud." I have seen Zuny's work in
the YIVO archives in New York City, and have compiled a partial genealogy
for him, his brother Philip "Zeidel" MAUD and their sister Matilda (married
surname: ROSMAN). I visited the family in their Catskill guest house in
the early 1940s.

Zuny and his relatives are descended, like me, >from Rabbi Shmuel Hakatan
MOED z"l. I shall welcome comments or queries.

Cordially,
Henny

Looking for WW I records of Oskar PAUL #general

SiebenSachen - Daniel Simon
 

Hi Genners,

I am trying to find out more about my grand-father Oskar PAUL who lived in
Berlin >from 1913 to 1933 and immigrated in Urugay in 1939.

Does anyone know if there still is a register somewhere, where I can find
out if he had been enlisted in the army in WW I.

Please reply privately.

FAGELMAN and the Alien Registration Act of 1944 #general

Annette Stolberg <annettes@...>
 

Genners,

The internet is very helpful in locating Petitions of Naturalization,
but not all immigrants became citizens after arriving in the US in
the early 1900's, such as my grandparents Hyman and Lena FAGELMAN.
My grandmother gave Minsk/Gubernia as her birth place, which is
meaningless without the name of a city. Guessing that my grandmother might
have registered as an alien after the Alien Registract Act was passed, I
contacted Homeland Security, requested the necessary forms, filled out the
paper work and mailed it back.

After waiting nearly a year, I received the information that my grandparents
were both born in Dokschitz/Doksycy/Dokshitse/Dugscitz which was formerly
in Vilna, Poland and in modern times in Belarus. So - if anyone knows
forebears who didn't become citizens, contacting Homeland Security might
be helpful.

Marriage Records for Boston, MA in 1923 #general

tina levine
 

I recently learned that my grandparents were married in Boston upon
my grandfather's arrival in the US (he arrived in the US in 1923 via
Boston, my grandmother arrived in 1921 via Ellis Island.)

Were there residency requirements at the time or could a couple marry
immediately?

Where could I obtain a copy of their marriage
certificate?

Thanks for any assistance.

Immigrant window cleaning businesses #general

Neiel and Joan Baronberg <njbaron@...>
 

Dear JGeners,

Have anyone of you found that your ancestors listed their initial
occupations as window washers?

Several of us researching family in Suchostaw (4908/2552) have found an
interesting phenomena. When our male ancestors arrived in NY in the early
1900s, they became "window washers." Indeed, several of us have heard family
stories that our ancestors started window washing companies and would give
the new greenhorn boys an instant job when they arrived.
We have heard stories of these new window washing businesses in NY, Chicago,
Washington, D.C. Some referred to themselves as window cleaners.
Some of these early window washing groups developed into large building
maintenance companies.

Do any other of you JGers have stories about window cleaning?
