Seeking ZANDER family in Buffalo NY #poland

Kirsten Gradel <kirsten.gradel@...>
 

Several people have written with helpful advice and addresses of
useful web sites and I have thanked them all.

However, brilliant Barbara ZIMMER actually found the family in
Buffalo NY Census 1930, the name misspelled as GARDAS!!! I would
never have found them and how Barbara did is amazing. Barbara also
sent a lot of other useful information.

So I am sure I will find some descendants of Liba Rojza and then I
can hope they know something about the last aunt Ryfka PRASZNYCER who
was still living in Plock in 1926. Holocaust is foremost in my mind
when I think of her, but now I know that at least Liba Rojza was safe
in US.

I have sent a donation to JRI-Poland as a way of thanking Barbara.

Keith Hatfield <kshatfield@...>
 

Hello everyone, I have posted this information before but here I go again.
Does anyone have any information?

Otto Israel Angestellter 28.4.1892 and Ester Malka Sara WERNER (nee ADLER)
16.12.1904. My paternal Great Grandparents names were: Max Werner gestobern
and Fanny geb. Adler gestorben. I do not have any further information on
these people.

My maternal Great Grandparents were born in Lodz, Poland.
Nach Natalia Sara ADLER (nee MICHALOWICZ) 4.1 or 23.12.1876 and Gerson
Israel Taschner, ADLER, 17.4 or 11.5.1877. 19.2.1942. They lived not in
Prague, but in Slany near Kladno. Their children were:

Ester Malka Sara WERNER (nee ADLER) 16.12.1904.

Anna Gita ADLER, 13.12.1911 .

Mosek Sljama (Moritz?) 22.3.1903

Natalia, Anna and Mosek Sljama lived, before deportation, in Praha XIV,
Nazahonech 16.

There was also a sibling, Ida HOFFMAN (nee ADLER) 2.1 or 4.1.1909 who
married a Jindrich HOFFMAN 25.9.1905 (Valasske Mezirici) in approx. 1930.
She survived the Holocaust because she and her husband moved to Israel.
They were the people who cared for my Mother, Hanna WERNER, during the
years 1939 -1947. I believe that Jindrich may have changed his name to
Chaim (Dr) Hoffman and he worked for Vaad Hopoel, which was part of the
"Histadrut", the Israeli labour Council.

Search changes in the six NY cemetery databases #general

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings,

I noticed today that recently a change was made to the searchable cemetery
databases at Mts. Ararat, Carmel, Hebron, Judah and Zion.

First, with regards to the Interment Search feature, one could just click on
the "Search" button without entering anything in the search fields at all,
and one would simply see the total number of entries listed in the cemetery
database, e.g. such a search on the Mt. Carmel db would reveal 88,000+
burials to date. Now if you try it a window pops up saying you must enter
something in at least one search field (even if it's a single letter or
number). In the date field, one could simply choose a year, e.g. 2007, and
100 of the total number of 2007 burials will appear. Note that, at least at
the present moment, this does not hold true for the Mt. Lebanon Cemetery db.
One can click on the "Search" button and you can see that are 88,208
entries. But this, of course, can be changed anytime.

This brings me perhaps to a more significant change. Before a successful
search that might yield three hundred names yielded a displa of only two
hundred names, as this was the limit allowed by those who created the dbs.
One would have to figure out, depending on what one was searching for, how
to search for the other hundred names. Now it seems they have changed the
five previous dbs, as they have tweaked the new Mt. Lebanon Cemetery db. A
search that might result three hundred names will only initially reveal one
hundred names, not two hundred. This might be considered a negative change;
however, it is not. Above the list of the hundred names are links to pages
two and three. So to continue on your search for the remaining two hundred
names, you simply click on either or both links to the suceeding pages. This
really does make things easier.

I hope my explanation was not too confusing. These six cemetery dbs (plus
the one at Mt. Moriah in New Jersey) allow us to search a combined list of
nearly 700,000 burials.

Hopefully by the end of the year, Mt. Carmel will have the data on their db
from nearby Knollwood Park Cemetery, but who knows? I will let you know when
this data is available for viewing.
If you need to know the URLs (website addresses) for the seven available
cemetery search engines, as well as their policies regarding one's ability
to request they take gravestone photos for you for a fee, please visit
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/cp-directory.htm.

Howard Margol can make arrangements to have the bulk of these records
translated if enough Balbieriskis researchers become qualifying donors of
the VRT project for this town. In order to do so, one must contribute a
minimum of $100 towards the translation of these records. Researchers
interested in seeing the translations for this town completed can contribute
via the LitvakSIG web site at www.litvaksig.org . Click on "Become a
Contributor" and follow the directions. You must specify the Vital Records
Translation Project ans select Balbieriskis as your town of interest.

An interesting ancestry that led back through Memel and Kretinga (Telsiai Uyezd) to Tryskiai (Siauliai Uyezd) #lithuania

Deena Berton <deena.berton@...>
 

I thought this might be of interest to many of you, specifically those of
you with ancestors >from Tryskiai (Siauliai District) and Kretinga (Telsiai
District).

Actor David Suchet, most well known for his role playing Agatha Christie's
Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot, has origins in the shtetls of Tryskiai and
Kretinga.

His family history is an interesting one (on all sides, actually),
displaying the level of creativity and determination many of our ancestors
must have had in escaping the Pale.

The BBC had a series called Who Do You Think You Are? in which they explore
the ancestry of famous people. David was featured recently and it was the
data they found in the All Lithuania Database (ALD) that led them to finding
David's ancestors in Tryskiai. (They found info >from the 1866 Revision
List/Additional Revision List for Tryskiai obtained via the Siauliai
District Research Group of LitvakSIG and they searched the Telsiai District
Group records as well, but I'm unclear whether they used them).

If you are interested, you can learn more about the series at
www.bbc.co.uk/whodoyouthinkyouare/ This page has links to many episodes.
What is really neat is that in each episode they explain their research
process and on the website they explain the research process in specific
steps.

For the research process on David Suchet that led through Memel to Kretinga
to Tryskiai, see this page:

Passenger lists -- Quebec, Halifax, or Argentina #general

Dorothy Bernstein <dor5094@...>
 

Hi to all,
I found my great uncle Uriah Steinborn, listed in the book "Russians to
America". He is listed as Urie Steinborn sailing on the ship Polynesian and
arriving on June 6, 1887. I have tried numerous sites and can not find a
passenger list for this ship. It is possible it went to either Halifax,
Quebec and may have traveled via Argentina. Does anyone have any suggestions
on how to get a passenger list?
Thanks

APOTHEKER- Bardejov, Nowy Sacz and LAUER from Presov and Albuquerque #general

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners and Siggers,
Though I've posted in the past I am counting on possible new members.
My late father in law David APOTHEKER(1908-1995)was born in Bardejov,
Slovakia to Lazar and Bina(maiden name unknown).He was the youngest of
9 siblings and the only one to survive the war(Shanghai, Sugihara List).
His family had strong connections in Nowy Sacz(just over the Carpathian
ridge in Poland) and 2 of his siblings were married/engaged with the
LAUER family in Presov.The LAUER branch had 12 siblings some of whom
survived and came to the USA(Albuquerque NM) but they passed away in
the begining of the 2000s,before we got interested in the family's
history.There may be one who is still alive,Sidonia Singer in Tarrytown
NY, but our efforts to contact her family through the Shul did not succeed.
I am acquainted with the Lauer family website
http://www.ics.uci.edu/~dan/genealogy/Miller/suraroza.htm
Any one who may put me in contact with the LAUER offsprings or knows
anything about the APOTHEKERs >from Bardjov,please respond privately.
Thanks.
