Death of Siegmund Nissel #austria-czech

Dubois family <family@...>
 

The Times, on 23 May, has the obituary of Siegmund NISSEL, who died on 21
May.

Siegmund NISSEL was a member of the Amadeus Quartet. He came to the United
Kingdom, >from Vienna, on a Kindertransport. He subsequently met a future
member of the Quartet, Peter SCHIDLOF, during internment as an enemy alien.
SCHIDLOF had previously met Norbert BRANIN, also interned as an enemy alien.
Thus, in internment three quarters of the Amadeus Quartet first met.

Name Amy #general

Rosalind
 

I have looked unsuccessfully on Prof Esterson's list of first names for
possible Hebrew names which would "change" to Amy in UK and elsewhere.
So could you let me know of any Amy's in your families and their Hebrew
names, please

For now I am putting my bets on Ada/Ida or Hanna.

My Amy was born in Glasgow in 1904.
Is anyone familiar with any Synagogue records of births which might have a
Hebrew name.

Thank in anticipation

MODERATOR NOTE: Please send anecdotal information about
particular individuals privately to Ros. We will consider
responses about useful sources for answering questions

The 1851 Study of the Jewish Population of the United Kingdom #general

Louise Messik <louise@...>
 

Dear Group Members

The 1851 Study at http://jgsgb.org.uk/1851/Introduction.asp has been updated
this week to include another few thousand names. It now contains over half
of the UK Jewish population of 1851 and goes both backwards and forwards in
time where the information on an individual has been researched or made
available.

The core of the database is the UK census of 1851 and the people and their
families have been expanded where possible. Addresses, trades, fathers and
mothers, wives and children (who in turn are followed through if the
information has been found ) all add up to make it a remarkably researched
study.

Our most sincere thanks goes to its editor, Petra Laidlaw, and all the
contributors who have been most generous with their time and knowledge.

Obits for Abraham & Fanny KELLER (of Chicago; d. Los Angeles) #general

arnonh@tapuz.co.il <arnonh@...>
 

Hello, Dear Colleagues!

While discovering some information about a new branch of the family
researched, I've found relatives of mine in 1930 Census. It is the KELLER
Family, who lived then in Chicago, IL (date of births are according to the
census):
Abraham (b. ~1899) and Fannie (~1904) with their children, Sarah (~1925),
Julius (~1926) and Norman (~1928).

Searching the SSDI, I've found two "suspects" for Abraham and Fannie:
* Abraham KELLER, b. Feb 1, 1899, d. Nov 20, 1987, last residence: 90048
(Los Angeles, CA), SSN 356-22-4893 issued: IL
* Fanny KELLER, b. Aug 16, 1902, d. Jan 13, 1992, last residence: 90048
(Los Angeles, CA), SSN 334-20-8030 issued: IL

I'll be very glad to be helped with locating these Abraham and Fanny
obituaries, or any other informatiom about this KELLER family.

Yours,
Arnon Hershkovitz, Israel
