Rosenthal letter--Viewmate 12803 #unitedkingdom

sararu70@...
 

Just recently found a letter written by SALO ROSENTHAL. The letter ,
written in German, was dated Nov. 1, 1936 and sent >from GERMANY to his
relative ELEAZER KATZ in the UNITED STATES. ELEAZER KATZ'S mother was
TOBE-FEIGE ROSENTHAL , so it's safe to assume SALO is ELEAZER'S relative.
The letterhead may be that of SALO' S place of employment. The letter
may not have been mailed in BERLIN or anywhere in GERMANY for that matter.
I have posted it on Viewmate 12803.

TOBE {as she was called} was born in SINEA around 1840. She married MAX
KATKISKY {born about 1836 in SUVALKI} . MAX and TOBE, immigrated to the
UNITED STATES in the early 1870s , and with their children , JENNIE,
ELEAZER, LOUIS, and SARAH , settled in PITTSBURGH,PA.


As for the letter, I can make out a few words here and there, but I
think the gist of the letter refers to something sent to to the family in
Europe, as the words American Express are in the letter, as well as the word
Juden, which was a worrisome time for all in GERMANY.

If any one can translate the letter or has any knowledge about the
ROSENTHAL family , we would appreciate the information.

Re: Jacob STECKERL from Misslitz,Moravia #austria-czech

Hello Andrea,

It appears that Dr. Matusikova was correct about the limited surviving
records >from Misslitz/Miroslav. But the cemetery apparently still
exists, see

http://www.jewishgen.org/cemetery/e-europe/czechm-o.html

Note in particular:

500-1000 gravestones, in original location with 50%-75% toppled or
broken, date >from 1691-20th century.

Working >from Vienna records:

- You can find the death records and children's birth records in the
LDS films

- death records sometimes give the decedent's marriage date
- birth records sometimes give the parents' marriage date
- Julie's death record should confirm that she was a widow

- You could search for a marriage record for Ignaz and Franziska based
on the date if you find it, or using the index registers

- You could probably obtain Julie STECKERL's probate documents from
City of Vienna (you will need the date of death, and the district
where she lived - >from her death record). You could be lucky and
find info on Jacob's date or place of death - but the chances aren't
so good. You could also find info on siblings of hers.

If you want to pursue Julie's line >from Nikolsburg/Mikulov, the records
in the National Archives won't go back far enough to have her birth or
marriage. But the Prague Jewish Museum has two books that would be of use:

"Familien-Register" - an index of births, marriages and deaths,
compiled >from registers that mostly no longer exist.
See http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Nikolsburg/nikres.htm

"Seznam narozenych" - records of births >from 1763 to 1847

The Nikolsburg cemetery could provide further information. There is a
very useful database of graves at the shtetlink.

Best of luck.

Moses Salomon LEVI and Isabella SAMSON #general

Andre_Lovestam <andre@...>
 

Hello,

I am Andre Lovestam >from Norway.

Through ancestry research, I found that my great great great grandfather,
and the 'father' of my name/family, Matthias LEVESTAM (1769-1848), was
originally a Jew named Moses Salmon LEVI. He was the dentist to the Royal
Danish Court in Copenhagen >from 1801.

According to the story translated >from old Danish dentist chronicles,
he was born Moses Salomon LEVI in Germany in 1769 and converted >from the
Mosaic to the Evangelical Lutheran faith in 1809. At the same time he
changed his name to Matthias LEVESTAM.

Can you give me any hints on how to find out anything more about the
ancestry / family of Moses Salomon LEVI and/or his his wife, Isabella
SAMSON?

His children were named Arnold, Georg or Jury, July, Friedrich Heinrich and
Johanna-Augusta.

I would be very grateful for your help.
Thanks in advance.

know she married late in life, sometime between 1960 when we came to Canada,
and 1976 when she died. I can find no trace of her marriage, although I do
have a photo of her wedding.

She died in 1976 and is buried in the UHC Cemetery in Leeds. Her husband
Max HOPSTONE died October 6, 1981, and according to the records he is buried
in New Farnley.

My great aunt, who turned 88 this week, asked me today if I could tell her
more about the family. I have no idea where to start as the only thing we
know on her mothers side is that both her grand-parents were opera singer in
Vienna (Austria). Her grand-father sang with the "Schubertbund" under the
direction of Franz Schalk, her grand-mother sang for only a short period of
time. Margarete Helene NEUMANN (the mother of my great aunt) was born
January 25th 1897 in Vienna, died in Geneva 1983. Her father is Franz Emil
SIMON, born May 19th 1890 in Mannheim. This is all we know. Maybe somebody
