New book by JewishGen: "Belzec: Stepping Stone to Genocide" #courland #latvia

Joyce Field
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce a new book in its Publish on Demand
series and a new easy method of ordering all the books in this series.

The new book is "Belzec: Stepping Stone to Genocide" by Robin O'Neil.
This is an expanded and newly-edited version of the book that is on
JewishGen's Yizkor Book site. The book will be sold for $49.95;
however, for the first 30 days, the book will be sold at an
introductory price of $44.95. The book will be on display at the
JewishGen desk at the IAJGS, but copies can only be ordered online or
by phone. All Publish on Demand books can be ordered at
<http://www.pickmanmuseumshop.com/jewishgen.html> or by phoning
1-646-437-4213.

Belzec was the prototype death camp, the precursor of Sobibor and
Treblinka. Secretly commissioned by the highest authority of the Nazi
state, it acted outside the law of civil and military conventions of
the time. Robin O'Neil takes the reader step by step into the
background of the "Final Solution" and gives eyewitness testimony as
the mass graves were located and recorded.

Remember that the introductory price is available only through September 15.

Hi Vanessa

Thanks for this. I think Bennie Goldberg's mother was a Kramer. Not
that that is of much importance, just a little by-the-way.

Solly Kramer died in 1949 and his 'empire' was sold a few years after
his death. But I am looking for info on Solly the person and/or the
development of his 'empire'.

Thanks

FRIEDMAN/FRITZ/KAPLAN - questions about identity and death date #general

Toby Bird
 

Dear Genners,

I am new at this. I am trying to find out when my g.g. Jacob KAPLAN and his second
wife Annie KAPLAN died and where they are buried. They were both still living in
1930 in Boston according to the US Census. Since Jacob was born around 1852 if the
info in the 1900 census is accurate (in each census he has a different birthdate)
he probably wouldn't have been alive, I don't think, much after 1930. So here are
the questions: How do I go about finding them??

What about city directories? I'd like to use them to trace Jacob and Annie Kaplan's
existence after 1930 but the few I looked at on line seemed to only list businesses
not just residences. Is there a specific directory to look at?

Should I start by going to Boston city hall with a list of all Jacob Kaplans who
died within a fifteen year period? Will they let me look at them to find the right
one?

A second puzzle: The story is that Jacob Kaplan and his 1st wife (who as far as I
can figure it out died in Europe), had two children - Abraham who was my
grandfather and his sister Sarah. And that Jacob's second wife Annie (who he seemed
to have married in Europe also and is listed on the 1900 census as being 20 years
younger than he is) had a younger sister, Dora, who married my grandfather. Dora
(maiden name FREIDMAN) is my grandmother. So Abraham allegedly married his
step-aunt (his step-mother's sister). I'm trying to confirm this, but haven't been
able to do so yet. There is a strange bit of information maybe someone can explain.
I'm trying to confirm that Annie and Dora were sisters (which means they both would
have been Freidmans). In the meantime I found in a Mass. vital statistics record of
Abraham and Dora's marriage that Dora's mother's name was Annie (FRITZ). So she
had a sister and a mother named Annie?? Is it logical to assume that the English
name meant nothing to them and that their Hebrew/Yiddish names were different? In
fact, now that I think of it, I don't think "Annie" Fritz ever came to this country
so where would she have gotten the name Annie?? Isn't it likely to have been Chana,
Chaya, Chava?? Or is that maybe a clue that she did come to this country?? And
Dora's father's name is listed as Henry.

PS I haven't been able to find any record of Dora in the US before her marriage
although the 1930 census says she came over in 1898. And I haven't been able to
find any of them on any manifests on ships coming into Boston or NY. Jacob Kaplan,
Annie Kaplan, Abraham Kaplan, Dora Freidman are all pretty common names.

Any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Genners,
Thank you to Sharon, Linda, Diane, Dena, Jackie, Nancy, Yehudah, Paul, Bette, Burt,
Ira, Sally, Linda, Nancy, Sylvia, Barbara...all of whom responded before noon
today! I thank all of you who will still probably respond before receiving this
post. What I was reminded of and had embarrassingly forgotten, was to review
handwriting above and below re: the abbreviation for street. I also learned to
consider both East Second Street in NYC and Second Street in Brooklyn. One person
gave me a map site so I could find exactly where the family lived. Another made
sure I noted that the immigrants were going to an M. Horowicz, a new name to me;
another that I should look at the end of the manifest to followup on an X next to a
passenger, indicating further information about being held. One genner opened a
door in a brick wall over a decade old by looking farther down the page and noting
a Nathan Horowicz, about whom I had been told but never had found.

The number and depth and intelligence of the responses is extraordinary. I am
making a gift today in honor of everyone who took the time and is probably taking
the time as I write this.
Warm Regards,

marriage customs 1920s Russia/Poland #general

debsu43@juno.com <debsu43@...>
 

If my grandmother and grandfather had married in Russia/Poland before they came to
the U.S. would their last names be the same on the ship manifest? We assumed that
my grandparents had married in Russia/Poland before coming here in 1921 but the
ship manifest listed my grandmother's maiden name only. My grandfather listed his
marital status as single but my grandmother listed her status as married. They
married three weeks after arriving here but we assumed it was because they had no
paper record of their marriage in the old country.

Any help you can give me on this would be appreciated.
