Salvadorian Diplomat's Paperwork Saved Lives during Holocaust- records on-line #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The US Holocaust Memorial Museum was given a gift of over 1,000
Salvadoran citizenship certificates issued by diplomat George
Mantello to saves lives during the Holocaust. The certificates
contain names, dates of birth and in many cases photos.

Mr. Mantello sent out notarized copies of the certificates and kept
the originals, more than 1,000 of which were found in a suitcase in
a Geneva basement in 2005 and donated to the United States Holocaust
Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., by his son three years later.
Now museum researchers are trying to trace recipients of the
certificates to get an idea of how many of them actually saved lives
and learn the full scope of Mantello's rescue efforts. The citizenship
certificates can be viewed on the museum Web site: http://bit.ly/at7GjV
[or http://www.ushmm.org/museum/exhibit/focus/mantello/ --Mod.]
(Click on browse through all certificates.)

An article on this genealogical treasure was in several newspapers
today, including the Washington Post which includes a slideshow:

Polish translation/help needed with obtaining copies of Kennkarte #galicia

Anneroos Reich <anneroosreich@...>
 

Last week I mailed the Krakow State Archives to ask how I could
obtain copies/scans of the Kennkarte with pictures of my
great-grandmother and my great aunt. I got a message back
immediately, but it is, unfortunately for me, in Polish. I would like
to know what exactly is written. I understand they are able to
provide the scans, but I do not want to make any mistakes. I
would like to have your help.

Here is the reply >from Krakow. (I had to get rid of the diacritical
marks, sorry.)

Szanowna Pani,

Uprzejmie informuje, ze w wyniku kwerendy nie odnaleziono
kennkart Sary i Wiktorii Reich. Odnaleziono natomiast:
- w Aktach Poniemieckich (1939-1945), w teczkach "Dane
osobowe Zydow ze zdjeciami w ukladzie wg numerow Kennkart
(numery: 10001-10320)" - wpisy dot. Sary i Wiktorii Reich - do
wykonania 1 skan;
- w aktach Starosty miasta Krakowa (1939-1945), w
Kwestionariuszach na wydawanie dowodow osobistych
(Kennkarten) dla Zydow, zalatwione pozytywnie - kwestionariusze
Sary i Wiktorii Reich wraz z zalacznikami - do wykonania 15
skanow. Koszt wykonania 1 skanu wynosi 5 PLN.
Jesli jest Pani zainteresowana zamowieniem skanow z powyzszych
kopii prosze dokonac wyboru i wplacic na konto Archiwum
odpowiednia kwote.

Re: Where in the world ZZ SHAPIRO my great-great grandfather.... #general

Herbert Lazerow
 

Dear Yonathan,
If I understand this correctly, you have been told the following,
which may or may not be true:
1. Your ggf is Zalman Vevel SHAPIRO, but his surname may be Getzel,
even though that is normally a given name.
2. He probably died before 1900. He does not appear in the 1900 census,
and there are few records extant >from the 1890 census.
3. He is reportedly buried in Gomel Khesed Cemetery on the Newark/
Elizabeth border. That cemetery actually appears to be a landsmanschaft
of what is alternatively know as McClellan or Mt Olivet cemeteries after
the closest intersection.
I think you need someone to look at the tombstone and the cemetery
records, and someone to check out the death certificate, which is probably
in the archives in Trenton NJ. Perhaps a Gener in each of those areas
will volunteer to do that for you once the weather improves.
By the way, I would be suspicious of the proposition that his wife
immigrated in 1897, more than a dozen years after her sons came to the U.S.
Good luck.

MILLER marriage between 1890 and 1910 #general

Steve Pickoltz
 

Marriage info:
I'm trying to find the husband's first name; when and where he
married; and when they divorced.

This is what is known:
Man's last name was MILLER.
Wife's name was Fanny PICKHOLTZ and she came to the USA in 1890
unmarried with her family.
Marriage may have taken place near Phila., Pa., or even in NJ,
Del, Md, but they are only guesses. No idea on the divorce.

Any help welcomed.

Did you know Mila Begun? If so, I'd like to speak and/or correspond with
you. I have learned through a Jewishgen listing that we both have
researched one of our very common "common names", Goldberg, in at least two
of the same towns. There may well be a connection but I didn't know about
her research in her lifetime. I would like to communicate with people who
knew her hoping that I might get the hint that would help me to my next
step. If you would be willing to contact me, I would be most appreciative.
