Micheline GUTMANN
 

In Frauenberg, Lorraine, about 1760, some members of an OPPENHEIMER family
arrived >from Blieskastel (now in Saarland).

Does anybody knows how this family was related to the other
OPPENHEIM-OPPENHEIMER branches? Thank you in advance.

ViewMate- Help with a handwritten German note (partly in Sutterlin) #germany

Joachim Salinger
 

Hello to everyone,

I need help for deciphering and translating a short note, written with
a pencil, at the bottom of a letter.

here is the ViewMate Link :
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=3D22850

The mainletter was written >from Deutsch Krone (Pommern) by Helene
HOLZHEIM, born LEVY, on 7th august 1934, to his cousin (my
grandfather) Bernhard SALINGER, who had just emmigrated >from Hamburg
to Dijon (Burgundy, France), and had also his first son, (my dad)
a few days before.

The small note, written with a pencil, is >from Eva, SALINGER, the
sister of my grand-father, and this is the only memory that he kept
from her. Obviously she was unable to run away >from Germany, and
perished in Chelmno KZ in May 1942.

I can only decipher few words (lieber Bernhard lb Helma), but the
handwriting, partly in Sutterlin, is too hard for me !

I don't post the main letter, because I do have allready a pretty good
loose translation, but if you need it too understand the short note,
please ask, and i'll mail it to you privately.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you very much.

Hello!

I have found in the burial registry of JewishGen 4 persons who were buried at
Agudath Achim, Los Angeles:

Weisberg Charles, Weissberg Max, Weissberg Fannie and Weissberg Abraham (Zushe).

I made a request for making photos to the gravestones of these persons on
findagrave.com. A man could find Charles and Max Weisberg but not the other.
Also I saw that for Charles and Max in your database were shown their jewish
names, so I could identify them as brothers. But for Weissberg Abraham (Zushe)
was no jewish name given. How can I contact the person who made this entries
for your database?

Thank you very much in advance

Yours,
Maxim Aronov

Hi Sharon,

Vatra Dornei or DORNA VATRA was until 1918 part of Austro-Hungarian province
of Bukovina. So perhaps your ancestors were >from other Austrian places and

I was just looking at the 1930 census where I found some information about my
great grandparents and great great grandmother that confuses me.
I was told, as well as seen it documented, that my great grandparents(and
possibly my great great grandparents*) were >from Vatra Dornei in Romania.
While looking at the 1930 census, it showed my great grandparents >from Zenta
(Senta), my great great grandmother >from I believe Bach and my great great
great grandparents >from Ried; all in Austria. The family listed under them
are shown to be >from what looks like it should be Iasi in Roumania.
My confusion stems >from (1) where is Zenta in relationship to Vatra Dornei and
(2) why are the neighbors >from Roumania and my family >from Austria?
* Some of my great great grandfather's siblings, based on documentation,
came >from Vatra Dornei, Czernovitz and Campulung.

Census Indexing Progress and States Released by Family Search #general

dennis gries
 

Jan Meisels Allen posted a query yesterday about the progress.

Apparently there was a misinterpretation by another person.

Suggestion: we all look to
https://www.familysearch.org/1940census/?cid=HomeT1940Text_v2

for updates.

For ease of entry, just use "Family Search.org" in at least the Outlook
browser, and then select "Get the Latest Status on image availability by
state" under the aviator picture on the right side of the page.

You will get a map that will, in many colors, display the indexing progress.
Only the states in gold are available for searching. There are several
states reported to be 100% complete, but they have not passed through final
review and been released.

Of course, we all can (as I am doing) index your favorite state or more, and
speed the progress. Gary M in his latest "Nu" edition bemoans the lack of
progress in New York, New Jersey, and other states with substantial Jewish
population. Yesterday at some point, NY progress was in Bronx Co; and NY in
Bergen Co.

Total indexing progress is just under 36%, and states with a bit over 5% of
the total population have been released for searching. It's been
progressing at about 0.8% a day quite consistently for the past week or
more. So, perhaps 80 days >from now, or about early August...the indexing
will be done, and then allowing time for the final checking on each state,
sometime in August, but there are some states that are below or barely at
10%, and there will need to be a big shift in action to those states, else
the total completion will dawdle along.

You might see a state 100% done and drop back to a lower percentage, often
98 or 99% before it hits the gold standard. Earlier, Indiana was reported
as 100% done, and then dropped back all the way to 18%. Over the past
week, IN has jumped by 15-20% some days, which is in the order of 500,000
indexed a day. Perhaps there is still something wrong with the numerator or
denominator there.

The Indexing is a worthy project of us all, in that we can add to the
consortium, for a tool and process that most of us will use.

Gyor,Papa ..Krakauer #hungary

ruebin7@...
 

HI All,
I am hoping someone may be able to help.
I am researching my Great Great Grandmother Rosalie Krakauer.Born 1810 PAPA.
She appears on the 1848 Census as living in PAPA, she was then 38. I have
not be able to locate any Birth or Marriage records.
I have seen the Death record, and I have found her Grave when we were In
GYOR. The record does not mention her parents names, which is what I am
looking for, and also any sibling My GG Grandmother would have had.
There is a record of a Lottie KRAKAUER, on both the Jewish Gen site and Gyor
Cemetery site, but no detail of Parents or spouse, I am seeing if she fits
in,
If anyone is able to assist I would very much appreciate it
Regards
