1882 Route from Odessa to Brody? #ukraine

tmoffatt@...
 

Has anyone seen any solid evidence on the route taken by refugees from
ODESSA to BRODY in the Spring of 1882?

My own assumption has been that the train would be taken through Volochisk,
entry into Austria (Galicia) and continuation through Ternopol and where it
meets this line meets the railway >from Brody the Lemberg/Lvov, take the
train to Brody.

Am I correct? I am assuming that the connection >from the south to the
Russian side of the border opposite Brody had not yet been built by 1882, or
was not used.

GOLDBERG -- finding correct ship manifest #general

Diane De Milt
 

On January 1, 2012 one of the members advised me that my grandfather,
Bernhard/Bernhardt GOLDBERG ,age 16 came to the US on the SS Friesland on
September 1891. Since then I have tried to get a copy of the papers on the
Ellis Island site, and www.theshipslist site, but he never comes up. Is
there anyone who can send me a copy of the manifest? He came with Louis
Goldberg, age 20. We have no idea who Louis is either and this is so very
frustrating that I might have some relatives on my grandfathers side and
no one knows of them
Thanks you for any help in this matter

Translating Polish Vital Records after 1867 #general

Marcelo Hamer <marcelohamer@...>
 

Hello,
I have been translating many pre-1867 polish birth, marriage and death
documents with the help of Judith Frazin's book. Now I have some
documents post 1867 (it seems to be in Polish too, definitely not
Russian) but I can't even recognize the names. Does someone have any
suggestion for translating the post-1867 vital records?

Thanks,

Marcelo Hamer

INTRO- researching Reichenheim Weisenhaus Orphanage + TANNENBAUM & ROWELSKY family -Berlin #germany

Eleanor Dooks <eleanor_thom@...>
 

Hello GerSig,My JGFF Researcher ID number is 143596 and I just
joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research fora few years,
but am a complete beginner in German Jewish research. I live in Ayr
, South Ayrshire, Scotland, and I speak English and good French and Italian.
. My computer use is advanced and internet use is extensive. I have
two primary goals in my research:1. My maternal grandmother, Deborah (Dora)
TANNENBAUM lived most of her childhood in an orphanage in Berlin. I
have photographs of her there with other girls, and on the back of one it say
s "Dora at RWH" - I believe this may stand for Reichenheim Weisenhaus, the
Jewish orphanage, Berlin. I would like to hear >from anyone who knows about
this orphanage or had family members there between the mid 1920s and late 1930s.
I am happy to share photographs.

The family names and ancestral towns that I have entered in the
JewishGenFamily Finder are:
Deborah (Dora) TANNENBAUM and her father Oscar TANNENBAUM, and mother Rosalie
TANNENBAUM nee ROWELSKY, who lived in Berlin. I am not certain about the
spellings of the names. I believe that Oscar TANNENBAUM also had links to
Bralia, Romania, and Rosalie ROWELSKY was possibly Czech born.

Deborah TANNENBAUM, their daughter, was born in Berlin. Oscar had a first
wife, name unknown, and children of that marriage who emigrated to the USA
- we would like to find them. The Family business in Berlin is unknown.
Briefly, to describe the family story (which I can't verify at this stage),
Rosalie died of blood poisoning when DORA was about five or six. Oscar,
her father was older and suffered >from asthma. He sent her to the orphanage
mentioned above, but he still lived in Berlin till she was a teenager.
He died probably in the 1930s. There were also aunts and uncles in Berlin
so it's a mystery why Dora was not cared for within the family.

Dora was the only child born >from Oscar's marriage to Rosalie, but he had
an earlier marriage. I don't know the first wife's name but there were
children of this marriage. They went to the USA prior to '39 and tried
to get Dora to the USA in 1939. I don't know their first names, or where
they went in the USA. I would love to find them somehow.
They were TANNENBAUMs. Dora came to the UK in 1939 as a refugee and was
a domestic in London for 2 years before going to Luton and later Elgin,
Scotland where she married a Scottish man and had four daughters.

She left her first child (name/dob and sex unknown) with an aunt
(name also unknown) in Berlin. They were never reunited. I would like
to find out who her family in Germany were and what happened to them
after she left.

For honesty's sake I should also put my cards on the
table and let you know that I'm a writer, and a PhD student in
Historical Fiction at the University of the West of Scotland.
My first novel was published by Duckworth in 2009 and was based
on a different part of my heritage. My aunts and my mother are very
keen for me to write about Dora's life. Dora was my maternal grandmother,
and of course, I hope to write a sensitive account which is respectful
to any information provided by informants and interviewees.

My PhD thesis will explore the ethical issues involved in research of
this kind.I look forward to being part of the group and hearing >from any
one who can help. I do have a young son, so my chance to get online can be
limited, but I will respond to all emails.

Many thanks, Eleanor Thom (info@eleanorthom.com) Ayr, Scotland
