Re: Jewish ancestry questionnaires in pre-war Germany - EBBE & EIBA #general

In response to Bob Leiser inquiry, Eva Lawrence wrote:

"In the 1930s, the hobby of Familienforschung had the useful purpose of
winkling out lost cousins, relatives who had emigrated and obtained
foreign nationality, and could therefore put up the money and guarantees
necessary for obtaining a visa to allow for one's own emigration. There are
sad and bitter stories of those whose guarantees didn't arrive in time.

There was no statutory requirement to keep your own documents. Many of the
originals of these documents are still preserved in a number of local
archives, but now some effort is required to retrieve them."

My sister-in-law has requested that I help her with research on her EBBE and
EIBA family, who lived in the 1920's and 1930's in Wiesbaden Germany. Her
mother, Johanna (Hanni) and 2 sisters survived the camps and death march.
They were liberated in Volarey,CZ where their youngest sister, Dorle EBBE,
died on November 16, 1945. Their parents were Melach EBBE (b. Warsaw POL)
and Hedwig EIBA (b. Munich GER). They were cousins, so EBBE and EIBA were
variants of the same name. Hedwig's father, Zvi Hirsch EIBA was also born in
Warsaw POL.

Any suggestions as to where I might inquire about the documents for these
families?

Thanks in advance. German research is not familiar to me.

Nellie PROPPER (PROPER) #general

At a memorial service yesterday I learned that the mother of the deceased
was Nellie PROPPER. I am named after my great grandfather David Joseph
Propper. We are >from NY but the other family was in Minnesota.

I wonder if anyone knows of or can locate a connection between the two
family. My mother never knew where David came from.

Thank you

Siblings? #general

Barb Moskowitz <bmosk2@...>
 

I was wondering how one would get information on siblings? I was at Vad
Vashem yesterday doing research and found much information about the
family. I could not find my mother in law's 3 missing siblings though. I
know their Jewish names but not their Czech names. I could not locate my
father in law's brother either for the same reason. Or were children who
went directly to the Gas Chamber not recorded? They are not listed in the
Yiskor book either.

I am trying to see if someone maybe related a grandson of my Grandfather's
Brother? I am sure he must have had siblings. Is there anyway to research this?

Family number #general

Henryk Gruder <henrygruder@...>
 

For a relatively short period of about 30 years in the middle of XIX century
Lemberg's (perhaps other localities as well) Jewish registry one could find
a Family number associated with an event: Birth, Marriage or Death.
Does anybody know if a married son / daughter preserved father's Family
number (or Mother?) or received his /her own?
Appreciate your help,
