"I've never been able to find my great-grandmother Leah Lachowitzsky and
Grandmother, Malka Lachowitzsky in the Ellis Island Passenger manifests. They came
around 1901-1902...I've tried Stephen Morses' site for every possible spelling...
I therefore think that there are just some Manifests that just didn't stand the
test of time."

Ever since the EIDB came on line I've been looking for my great-grandparents.
(Surely some of you remember waiting for the downloads in the era of dial-up.) Like
the above writer, my great-grandparents' surname began with an "L" (Lisitsky) and I
also tried the first letter as "S" because of the similarity of the letters in the
old style script. Every year or so I checked, then I started using Steve Morse's
site, and on this forum posted my frustration saying I decided they had been good
swimmers.

Well, I checked again recently, and lo and behold, that paid-for genealogical
website that we use now has more Canadian to U.S. indexes, and there were Bubbe and
Zayde, listed pretty clearly, too.

Best regards,

Seeking ancestors from Brazil #general

Tom Venetianer writes that one of the accepted, converted Jewish surnames in
Brazil is "AZEVEDO: A shortened Brazilian form of AZERVEDO meaning "people >from
Azere" or "Azerveira".

My husband's family name is ARKIN and the accepted family lore is that they
emigrated >from Lisbon to Turkey to Lunna and Yezori, Belarus. Since the site is
in Portuguese I am asking, could Yezori and Azere be the same?

FW: Town called Vradish/Wradisch/Wradisz, Comital Neutra, Hungary #austria-czech

Alan Kolnik <alan.kolnik@...>
 

I have been searching for a town called Vradish/Wradisch/Wradisz (the old
German script is difficult to read) which was apparently the birthplace of a
relative, that refers to Regina NEURATH, born MONATH, who lived in Mödling
bei Wien (data >from the Mödling records at the IKG, Vienna).

I have found an old message >from Celia Male
Slovakia: Pressburg;
Bohemia: Ascherau, Budweis, Kaminetz, Malin, Pilsen, Prague, Warnsdorf,
Wottitz, Reichenberg, Tutschap;
Moravia: Boskowitz, Holleschau, Hotzenplotz, Jamnitz, Kremsier, Hradisch,
Leipnik, Prossnitz, Nikolsburg; {Wradisch?}

Does anyone know where Vradish/Wradisch/Wradisz might be (is it also known
as Nikolsburg?), and if records exist for it? I assumed near Nitra, but
cannot find it on any map, nor in a JewishGen database.

Thanks

Vienna "in memoriam" tombstones - more pictures #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

In the past weeks I have added quite a few photographs of tombstones to my
Flickr collection: "Holocaust memorials - public and private":

http://www.flickr.com/photos/cam37/sets/72157603905805036/

There are now 96 tombstones displayed, mostly >from Vienna, but some from
Salzburg. These tombstones probably account for barely 0.5 percent of the
Austrian victims of the holocaust. Having seen many of the tombstones in
Vienna, I can vouch for the fact that only a small percentage do have
"in memoriam" lnscriptions on them. The reasons are obvious - the families
have dispersed or disappeared and the cost of engraving the tombstones is high.
The tombstones on my site are organised ln alphabetical order of the
victims family names. In *thumbnail* mode you can see the names by passing
the mouse over them: then click the picture or go to *detail* and enlarge
to read the data and see the magnified picture. New tombstones with
"in memoriam" inscriptions added are:

GOLDBACH sisters - Fanny GELLERT and Irene PFEFFERMANN, both deported from
France and died in Auschwitz - Dobling Friedhof.

KANTOR Hans [son of Ludwig and grandson of Hermann >from Jicin and Flora nee
GEDULDIGER] died in Belgrade, Serbia - Dobling Friedhof
KANTOR: Rosa {nee KANTOR} de Chavanne and brother Stephan - same family as
Hans above. I can find no references to Stephan in holocaust databases.
Can you help? Zentralfriedhof Tor 1.

LENARD Hermine - Wilhelm LENARD family - Dobling Friedhof.
I can find no references to Hermine in holocaust databases. Can you help?

STREICHER Karl {Charles} - STREICHER-GROSSMANN-HAYEK family - born Vienna,
lived in Paris and deported >from Nice - Dobling Friedhof.

If you have more Austrian cemetery photographs with "in memoriam"
inscriptions, which you would like to add to the site, I would be very
grateful to receive them. This is just another way of remembering the Austrian holocaust victims.

Please also note that six impressive photographs of the Berlin holocaust
memorials have now been added to the site, thanks to Ger-SIG member, Ilan
Ganot, who graciously sent them to me for inclusion.
