Re: Records from Wien #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Dr Richard Pavelle asks: "There are very few records >from Wien in the "All Poland
Database". Why are there so few records or am I looking in the wrong place? Most of
my ancestors came >from Vienna and I find only a few of them in Kolomeja."

This is a very unusual query. Most queries would be the other way around, namely
"My relatives went >from Kolomeja to Vienna, how can I find out more?" Whatever the
problem is, I suggest that Dr Richard Pavelle joins the Austria-Czech Special
Interest Group and tells us all about his family and we will then advise what steps
he can take to find them **in Vienna**: http://www.jewishgen.org/austriaczech/

We have many sources in Vienna that should be useful, but naturally it depends upon
the period he is talking about, how long the family lived in Vienna and most
important of all, if they left traces in the form of births, marriages and deaths
which we can chase up in very extensive records.

Joe SINGER Indianapolis #general

VICKI VIGIL <vvigil987@...>
 

Hi all,

Family legend indicates my grandfather Frank/Vincent BLUM/BLOOM was good friends
with Joe SINGER. Singer was trained as a machinist in Europe. Maybe he and my grfa
Blum were in Chicago together; and possibly Singer moved to Detroit when Blum moved
to Cleveland.

At any rate Singer eventually moved to Indianapolis before WWII. He had a daughter
who took care of him as he got elderly; he died in the 1970's. My cousin Fred said
he looked up Joe when he (Frank) was in the area while in the army. Singer was
apparently a big benefactor of a temple in Indianapolis. Is this ringing any bells?

Fw: GOLDENBERGER #general

Cissie Eppel
 

On my late grandfather's military draft registration #68, issued by the
Yelisavetgrad Police Department in 1886, he is named Simon Shmuel GOLDENBERGER.
His parents were Benjamin and Gerty Goldenberger, both subjects of Romania. On his
British Naturalization certificate it states that Simon Samuel GOLDENBERGER was
born in Bucharest, Romainia in 1859. >from Bucharest he moved to Kirovograd, Ukraine
before emigrating with his wife, Sima -Sarah (nee ZALATAROV)and their four
children, Benjamin, Gerty, Abraham, and Isaac, to Leeds, England, in about 1898.
Simon Samuel GOLDENBERGER was the only member of his immediate family to live in
England. It is known that he had relatives (probably sibblings) who emigrated to
U.S.A. Names and their whereabouts are unknown.

I would like receive any information on the GOLDENBERGER and ZALATAROV families..

I'm posting this for Arvin who had some technical difficulties.
Do not respond to me.


The gravestones at the Stolbtsy Cemetery have been photographed and cataloged.

I believe this work was courtesy of the Cemetery Restoration Effort and Yuri Dorn,
Director of The Jewish Heritage Research Group of the Republic of Belarus.

I have made the photos and data available for a limited time at my web site at
http://tunicks.com/cemetery.

The data is 150 MB in size and was sent to me by Melissa McCurdie

Hebrew on gravestone Viewmate 11148/11149 #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I posted two photos of the same stone to Viewmate. It is very badly worn but with
digital manipulation the Hebrew is barely visible. Maybe someone can get
something off the stone between the two versions? I am looking for the name and
date of death primarily.

The files are:

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=11148
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=11149

If you think you might be able to better manipulate or read the photos on your
computer I can email the originals to you as well off of the list.

Thanks in advance for trying. Unfortunately because of the situation I do not
have the ability to try rubbing the stone or doing anything other than trying to
read this picture right now.

Thanks

Sznajder - Labun Novo labun #ukraine

Finally I was able to get the ship manifiest for my greatgrandmother.

I always tought that my family came >from Tuchin. As for the manifiest it
says the following:

Birth place: Labun
Last residence: Rowno

Also when they entered the US in 1923 the last name was spelled Sznajder,
not Schneider. My but greatgrandfather in his Alien card it says SNIDER.

Does any know how to make research for Labun or Rowno records?

Thank you,
