Helene Rosen
 

I am looking for cousins Ann STEVENS and Mark STEVENS, children of Ruth FREEDMAN
STEVENS, grandchildren of Adolf FREEDMAN. In the mid 50s, they were living in White
Plains, NY and as children, we met briefly at a wedding in Baltimore, MD in 1955.

Re: Portuguese Israelite Section of Waldheim Cemetery #general

Dear Sam,

Thank you so very much for all your hard work to bring this to fruition.

Your pictures are fabulous. Within Portuguese Israelite, are my maternal
Grandmother and Great grandmother. I have stood over these graves many times.
Sometimes I talked and sometimes I cried.

Heartfelt Thanks,

Rohatyners in Detroit, Michigan? #general

osborn@...
 

Good afternoon.

My great aunt Bronia (Bracha/Bernice) HORN >from Rohatyn (formerly, Galicia) arrived
in NY on 7/30/1955. The ship manifest lists her address of destination as ***
Dexter Avenue, Detroit, Michigan.

I know of no HORN family members in Michigan, and by 1958,I also know that Bronia
was living in NYC with her older sister Julia HORN (at the time of Julia's death).

My question to the group: is there a way to learn who was living at *** Dexter
Avenue in 1955? My speculation: perhaps a fellow Rohatyner?

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks and kind regards,

Re: Information re relatives in Australia - Records online #germany

Shalom, Elizabeth,

I also have a fair bit of information on the Dunera ... my father was on
board and was one of the internees at Hay and Tatura. I'd be pleased to
share what I have with you and the woman who was doing the searching. I have also
trolled the Australia archives and there is much information that is available,
although, curiously, some records are still "Classified" for a 100-year period!

This September is the 70th anniversary of the Dunera's landing at Darling Harbor,
Sydney, and events are planned for there and at Hay (and elsewhere) in
memory of that terrible time. Some of these events are being planned by the
Dunera Association in Australia, some by government and the National Museum
of Australia. My wife and I will be in Australia >from late August to late
Sep and will take part. Regards,

Re: More about using Y-DNA testing #dna

Your point is well taken, Donn. I do try to keep all options open.
Sorry I sounded too negative about anything less than an 11/12 marker
match. In fact, I do not casually throw them away myself.

While this is generally true, this whole DNA business is about
probabilities--and some low-probability events occur.

TEOMIM,Spirodon Hospital, Iasi, Rumania #romania

I have found in the Cemetery Records for the Jewish Cemetery in Iasi, the
grave of Eliayhu TEOMIM, died August 13, 1907. A note says that he was >from
Podul Iloaiei and died in Spiridon Hospital in Iasi. His wife Rachel is
buried in the cemetery in Harlau. His unmarried daughter is also buried in
Harlau. Rachel seem to have moved there to be near her family after he died.
How common was it for Jews to be taken to a hospital in 1907? Rachel's
maiden name was BARID. Does anyone know anything about these families?

His daughter, Malkah, had gone with her husband, Samuel DREYLINGER, to New
York in 1900. His son, Paul, had gone at about the same time and lived in
Baltimore.
