vital records of WOLFF/WOOLF and URBAN families early 1800s plus EYBESCHUETZ connection #germany

Alex Singer Lavi <asingerlavi@...>
 

Dear German Jewish Genners,

I seek help identifying the following people - I believe they are all
members of one family:

Simon born ~1804. He appears under the name Simon WOLF in the 1841 UK Census
and under the name Somer WOLFF, a cap manufacturer, >from Germany in the 1851
UK Census (however, having viewed the original document, I believe his first
name was simply mis-transcribed and should read "Simon"). For several
reasons, I believe that his full secular name was actually Heinrich Adolph
Siegfried WOLFF, a cap-manufacturer, born in Hamburg in ~1804 (plus/minus 1
year), died Dec 8 1888 in Middlesex, England.

Johana WOOLF born ~1808. She appears in the 1841 UK Census living with Simon
(above) and the URBAN family (below) but I cannot find her after that.

Malchen born ~1809. She appears as Machen URBAN, the wife of Louis URBAN in
the 1841 UK Census. She is named as Malchen WRLAN of Hamburg, the wife of
Louis WRLAN of Prussia in the 1851 UK Census. Looking at the original
record, the surname could equally be read as URBAN. The 1861 UK Census sees
her listed as Malaher URBAN of Hamburg married to Louis URBAN of Posen,
Prussia. She died in the first quarter of 1866 in East London, the death
being registered under the name Malchin URBAN.

Fredericka, Rika, Rachel WOOLF born ~1810 in Hamburg. This is my great great
great grandmother. She married my ggg grandfather Julius (Yehuda) SINGER in
1837 in London. Their marriage certificate states that her father was dead
at the time of their marriage and that his name was Woolf WOOLF. I couldn't
find a record for this family in the 1841 UK Census. She appears as Rachel
Singer in the 1851 Census. Significantly, Caroline URBAN, the daughter of
Malchen and Louis URBAN, was with the SINGERs on the night of this census
and is identified as their niece. Fredericka/Rachel died in Gyor (Raab) in
Hungary in 1855 and I am in the process of trying to obtain a
high-resolution image of her gravestone.

If, as I suspect, these four are siblings, then their father was Woolf WOOLF
of Hamburg, who died before 1837, apparently in Hamburg, and his unknown wife.

It is this man and his wife whom I am trying to identify. To do so, I have
undertaken exhaustive searches for Simon, Johana and Malchin (and variant
spellings) in:
- the 1851 Anglo Jewry Database (the URBAN family don't appear in it at all,
with the exception of Caroline. The WOLF etc entries don't appear relevant),
- Ancestry (where I found their UK Census data; I could not find any useful
German data on Ancestry)
- JewishGen (no family members appear in the English or German data as far
as I can see; I found what might be a long-shot of a birth record for Louis,
however)
- Cemetery Scribes (no family members there)
- Synagogue Scribes (no family members there)

In previous correspondence with the Hamburg State Archives, the best they
could suggest was that I contact the Lutheran and Catholic Parishes (!) for
data. An earlier search of the Hamburg Society of Jewish Genealogy
(Hamburger Gesellschaft fuer Juedische Genealogie) did not locate any
relevant records.

Does anyone recognize these names? Are there any other avenues I could
pursue to obtain birth records for any of these individuals and the marriage
record of Malchen and Louis URBAN?

Another piece of information that may be of relevance if any readers are
EYBESCHUETZ researchers: Israel ABRAHAMS (a Jewish scholar and the
son-in-law of Fredericka's son R. Simeon SINGER) writing in 1908, states
that Fredericka was a lineal descendent of R. Jonathan EYBESCHUETZ. Maybe
EYBESCHUETZ researchers reading this posting have information that might
enable me to close the gap?

Thanks very much for any assistance.

If you google for Sandwich Library in Kent, you should find their contact
information. Similarly for the Kent Archives.

One or other is likely to have copies of the historical local papers, and they
may be willing to have a look for you - especially as the time-frame is
relatively short. They may be willing to send you a paper or digital image of
any relevant article(s), if they exist.

An interesting resource regarding Kitchener is to be found in The Jewish
Chronicle (The JC), London, http://thejc.com. A series was published in The
JC which was entitled "Refugee Notebook, Cameos >from Kitchener Camp-Town" by
Erica Natonek with sketches by Wooping. The articles are located in The JC
Archives and whilst you can search for them, you cannot access the actual
article without a subscription.

The author of this series, Erica Clara Wasserman Natonek, was born 1909, in
Czechoslovakia. She was the former wife of Prague-born Hans Natonek, editor
of the Neue Leipzier Zeitung and later a writer in America.

There is also mention of the "Kitchener Camp Review, the Journal of the
Kitchener Camp for Refugees". In regard to this publication you can find it
referenced on the following site:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/programmes/peoplesmuseum/week4_12.shtml. It
states that the Review is to be found in the Sandwich Guildhall Museum which
you can reach at:
http://www.sandwichtowncouncil.gov.uk/guildhall/museum.htm

Many other references to the Kitchener Camp can be found in The Jewish
Chronicle including one in the August 4, 1939 issue which tells of the first
wedding of a refugee couple which was held in Oxford, England. Fritz Weiss
of the Kitchener Camp married Therese Weisz of Oxford and a reception and
dance was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. David Leverton.

Camp Kitchener Sandwich, England 1939-40 #general

Regarding research on the Kitchener Camp (note correct spelling) in
Sandwich, UK, the ProQuest historical database provides many articles
on the origins and life in the camp >from newspapers like The
Manchester Guardian, The Observer, The New York Times, Baltimore Sun,
Times of India and the Atlanta Constitution. Historical newspaper
research is often the best window through which we can view the past.
ProQuest can usually be accessed for free through most universities
and public libraries. Microfilms >from these newspapers are also
available at most large public libraries. Here are a few samples of
the information contained in these articles. You can see that they
are not just facts and dates, but offer personal information that can
be of great genealogical value:

January 29, 1939 - The Observer - "British Camp for 3,500 Refugees:
To Cost L80,000 a Year" - discusses how the Council for German Jewry
has acquired the property to be run by the Jewish Lads Brigade, and
that after intensive training in agriculture, boat repairing and
tailoring the inhabitants will be "emigrated in due course and will be
no liability on the country."

April 8, 1939 , Manchester Guardian - "Camp for 3,000 Refugees"-
relates how 100 teachers >from the Isle of Thanet volunteered to teach
English to the expected Austrian and German refugees. The camp was
run by the Council of German Jewry and the Lord Baldwin Fund, and
would have a cinema, barbershop and hospital. They expect the refugees
(18 - 35) to be "eager and enthusiastic" pupils who intend to
immigrate to the States and English-speaking colonies.

April 17, 1939 - "Passover at Richborough: Life in a Refugee Camp" -
details the camp's synagogue, the work of the artisans, and the rich,
varied talent in the camp, including the anxiety over loved ones left
behind.

June 26, 1939 - Manchester Guardian - Under "Refugee Advertisments"
David Frostig, living at the camp, is seeking a position for a
"married couple" who can cook, run a house, etc. and are "willing to
go anywhere."

July 19, 1939 - The Manchester Guardian - "Refugees in Camp - Work and
Play - Community Life at Richborough- Learning English" details the
daily activities of the 2,000 in habitants, with 200 a week arriving
until the total of 3,500 is set. It is a "lively, self-contained
community which is developing its own intellectual and artistic
life." What was once a "garish ruin" is now a place of lightness and
charm. Mr. Oscar Detsch of the Odean Theatres donated the cinema
apparatus for the 500 person theatre. It discusses the use of the
"liguaphone" in teaching phonetic English quickly and accurately,
supplementing the English language film screenings. Two of the
Viennese in the camp were with the Philharmonic Orchestra (and escaped
with their instruments) and two Hungarians >from Bohemia were prominent
entertainers. They participated in an evening's entertainment -- a
concert and lecture on the part that Jews played in Viennese music.

November 23, 1939 - "Refugees Here on Liner Georgic: Ship Painted
Black, New Camouflage Color" - tells of the Cunard White Star motor
ship which arrived with 46 German-Jewish refugees, including men who
had been interned in the Kitchener Camp. One was Eduard Kahn and his
wife, Greta, a singer, who has owned a textile firm in Vienna until
HItler took over Austria.

November 27, 1940 - The Atlanta Constitution - "Atlantan Spent 11
Months in Nazis' Camps: Memories Still Horrible to Clement Mokner,
Vienna Jeweler" - Details the experience of this "thin, bald young
man" who was born in Poland when it was Austria-Hungary. He lived
through two concentration camps before being allowed to leave with his
wife and child and found himself at the Kitchener Camp which he
praised. He entered the US via Halifax under the immigration quota
and was in New York before coming to Atlanta where he has met 100
refugees >from the Nazi terror.

June 29, 1996 - The Manchester Guardian - "Shelter >from the Storm" -
contains a letter to the editor >from Eileen Howarth, Grange Road,
London relating her story of contacting the Kitchener Camp to aid the
governments' efforts for UK citizens to befriend ("adopt") the
refugees. She provides a more sobering view of the camp's conditions
and the rather pitiful picnic she had with several of the residents in
May 1939 when she obtained a three-hour visitor's pass. She
corresponded with many of the residents and had life-long friendships
with them.

Note: She references an article circa 1939 in the "News Chronicle"
about the camp which should be findable.

The story of this camp is a little-known (and fascinating) one and
deserves more research.

Woman wearing no Sheydl #general

Andy <arosen2@...>
 

Hello:

I've been in correspondence with a cousin who graciously shared a
family portrait dated to around the turn of the (20th) century. This
photo was purportedly taken in or around shtetl in what is now Eastern
Ukraine, about 100 miles west of Lviv. It was a studio portrait.

The region was Austro-Hungarian governed at the time and they were
relatively tolerant towards Jews.

The mother in this photo is not wearing any head covering. I have seen
hundreds of shtetlach photos like this and the woman always wears a
head cover. Her husband is not present in this photo, so I have no
idea if he would be wearing a yarmulke in this photo (he was in
America at the time and the wife left a few years later with her
children).

After they migrated to the US, the family eventually became
assimilated (very typical in my family).

The shtetl, to my understanding was traditionally Orthodox. Can anyone
provide any clues?

Thank you!

Warmly,

Hi Michele,

A bit of a long shot, but you could try making contact with the British
Museum's Newspaper Archive which is based at Colindale in North West
London. (contact details will be available via Google)

They would have on file almost every local newspaper published in the UK
(and many other places), so may be able to help you find this story.

My guess is that it might have appeared in the Kent Messenger newspaper,
which has editions covering the entire county of Kent. (Google, again) The
paper itself should have a web site, so it might also be an idea to contact
the paper and pose this question, maybe in the form of a Letter to the
Editor.

Hope this works for you.

Happy hunting

An interesting resource regarding Kitchener is to be found in The Jewish
Chronicle (The JC), London, http://thejc.com. A series was published in The
JC which was entitled "Refugee Notebook, Cameos >from Kitchener Camp-Town" by
Erica Natonek with sketches by Wooping. The articles are located in The JC
Archives and whilst you can search for them, you cannot access the actual
article without a subscription.

The author of this series, Erica Clara Wasserman Natonek, was born 1909, in
Czechoslovakia. She was the former wife of Prague-born Hans Natonek, editor
of the Neue Leipzier Zeitung and later a writer in America.

There is also mention of the "Kitchener Camp Review, the Journal of the
Kitchener Camp for Refugees". In regard to this publication you can find it
