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.

Database of Jewish cemeteries in the Rhine-Maas-region #general

Nathanja Huettenmeister
 

Dear genners,

the Salomon Ludwig Steinheim-Institute for German-Jewish History in
Duisburg, Germany, recently finished its documentation of 47 Jewish
cemeteries in the "euregio rhein maas" region, which comprises part of
North Rhine Westfalia and part of the Dutch province of Limburg:
Boxmeer/Vierlingsbeek (Nl), Brueggen (D), Brueggen-Bracht (D), Dormagen
(D), Dormagen-Zons (D), Geldern (D), Gennep (Nl), Grevenbroich (D),
Gr-Hemmerden (D), Gr-Huelchrath (D), Gr-Wevelinghoven (D);
Grimlinghausen (D); Issum (D), Juechen (D), J-Garzweiler (D),
J-Hochneukirch (D), Kempen (D), Korschenbroich (D); K-Glehn (D), Krefeld
(new cemetery) (D), Kr-Huels (D), Kr-Linn (D), Meerbusch-Lank-Latum (D),
Moenchengladbach (D), Mg-Giesenkirchen (D), Mg-Odenkirchen (D),
Mg-Rheindahlen (D), Mg-Rheydt (D), Mg-Wickrath (D),
Nettetal-Kaldenkirchen (D), Neuss (D), Roermond (Oude Kerkhof, old and
new part) (Nl), Rommerskirchen (D), R-Butzheim (D), Schiefbahn
(Bertzweg) (D), Schiefbahn-Knickelsdorf (D), Schwalmtal-Waldniel (D),
Sittard (Nl), Toenisvorst-St. Toenis (D), T-Vorst (D), Venlo (old and
new cemetery) (Nl), Viersen (D), V-Duelken (D), V-Suechteln (D), Willich
(D), W-Anrath (D) (NL = Netherlands; D = Germany).
The "image-text inventory, documentation and comparative research on
Jewish cemeteries in Dutch and German frame of reference" was carried
out within the framework of a "setup of a euregional network for
regional historic research" sponsored by the euregio rhein-maas-nord,
the provincial government in Limburg and the government of North Rhine
Westfalia.

The database, which has now been presented online, contains more than
3400 gravestone inscriptions, the oldest >from the year 1715, with German
translations, commentaries, biographical details and photographs. It
will be continously complemented (additions and corrections,
particularly those of biographical details, are welcome!).

The names, years of death, the Hebrew, German and Dutch inscriptions and
their translations into German are fully searchable both in German and
Hebrew. You can access the database via the main page
http://www.steinheim-institut.de:50580/cgi-bin/epidat
where you can also find the cemeteries of Arolsen, the old cemetery of
Frankfurt am Main (Battonnstrasse), Hamburg-Altona, Muelheim an der Ruhr
and Winsen. The database is constantly being extended to include more
cemeteries and inscriptions. To access the database one or more of the
cemeteries has to be chosen under "Auswahlmenue". Searching can then be
carried out in German or Hebrew (change language by [alt]+[shift]). If
you do choose only one cemetery, you can go to "Inschriften", where you
can access chronologically ordered inscriptions. You can look at them
one by one or select a particular year under "Jahr". Information about
the documentation, funding as well as conventions for illustration of
the Hebrew inscriptions is found under "Information" (a transaltion into
English is planned).

DAVID FRIEDMANN EXHIBITION - Portraits of Musicians #austria-czech

MiriFM@...
 

David FRIEDMANN (Maehrisch Ostrau 1893-1980 St. Louis, Missouri) was
one of the many visual artists for whom the expression of the
"Forgotten Generation" was coined. A talented violinist, he had a
special connection with music and the famous musicians of his time whom
he sketched.

On the eve of the 70th anniversary of "Kristallnacht" (Night of the
Broken Glass), at 6:00pm, in the Foyer of the Philharmonie Berlin,
there will be an opening of the exhibition, "David Friedmann Portraits
of Musicians", which can be seen through January 4, 2009. David's deep
passion for art and music comes alive in this display of thirty
discovered portrait reproductions of mostly Jewish exiled composers,
violinists, pianists, conductors, cellists, who were forced to flee
during the Nazi regime. They were outstanding soloists and members of
the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra before it was taken over by the Nazi
Government and thus became the "Reichsorchester". The portraits are
among 200 drawings >from the 1920s that were found published in the
radio program magazine for all German listeners "Der Deutsche
Rundfunk". >from the hundreds of drawings lost during the Nazi Regime,
one has fatefully emerged in time for the exhibition, the portrait of
Czech violin virtuoso Vasa Prihoda to be displayed with those of Arnold
Schoenberg, Stefan Frenkel, Gregor Piatigorsky, Julius Pruewer, George
Szell and Hansi Freudberg (Joanna Grauden).


Thanks to the enthusiastic interest and support of the Philharmonie
Berlin, Stiftung Berliner Philharmoniker, this exhibition has
triumphantly materialized as if by design. The captivating portraits
were recognized as a historically significant treasure >from an era that
no longer exists. These talented musicians, some renown, others
obscure, were all once an integral part of Germany's culture, and
despite the destruction of the Third Reich, they will be remembered
through the art of David FRIEDMANN.

For more information about the portraits and link to his Holocaust art,

Re: Kristalnacht #austria-czech

Many years ago before I had a computer I ordered fiches >from LDS.
I was given the wrong date for my grandmothers death.
She died in 1936. Anyway the fiche I ordered was 1938
so I just started looking in there even tho I didn't know any
body that died that year.
Actually I didn't know much of anything in those day and
I found my ggmother and 2 other members of my family that had died.

I found many people and even families with children that died.
The cause was Suicide.


Does anybody know what happened in 1938 to the people that died
I just realized that I have death dates but don't recall know or how they
were buried.

Leopoldstadt Unterrealschule class lists - 1894/1895 #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

School registers are very valuable historical and genealogical aids.
Here is a register taken >from the twentienth year report of the k. k. Staats-Unterrealschule in der
Leopoldstadt, Vienna II. Glockengasse 2.

http://forum.ahnenforschung.net/archive/index.php/t-8614.html

It encompasses the end of the school year 1894/95 and was presented by
Richard TRAMPLER - k. k. Director, Vienna. {Verlag der k. k. Staats-Unterrealschule im II. Wiener Bezirke.
1895.}

I can see many family names of interest - ABDELA - see my last posting; BRADY [we have discussed this
family before]; GRUNWALD for Traude Triebel; MAZLIACH {Sephardic}; MEDIANSKY for one of my current
projects; NICHTENHAUSER {for Jean Lowenstamm}; RATZERSDORFER - many links; SINAI for Henry SINAI;
WELLISCH for Henry WELLISCH for starters!

Many of these boy would have been of Galician origin - dates of birth probably in the 1880s. I am not too
sure of the age that boys entered the Unterrealschule - perhaps someone could enlighten us? I could
cross-check various databases to find the boys, but your input would be simpler!
