Hermann Clemens Kosel (1867-1945) #austria-czech

farleypkatz@...
 

Hermann Clemens KOSEL, known as H. C. Kosel, was born in Dunkelthal,
Czechoslovakia (now Temny Dul, Czech Republic), on November 23, 1867
and died in Vienna on September 14, 1945. He was a photographer,
bookbinder, poet, novelist (under the pseudonym A. Clementi) and
editor of books on art history. In 1911 he was appointed court
photographer for Austria, taking numerous portraits of the imperial
family and European nobility. Kosel's son, Hermann KOSELl
(1896-1983), also was an artist, known primarily for designing art
deco posters.


One on line source states that H. C. Kosel was banned >from working in
1938. See Austria Forum
http://austria-forum.org/af/AEIOU/Kosel%2C_Hermann_Clemens_Pseudonym_A._Cle=
menti
("1938 Arbeitsverbot."). If this is correct, I assume it implies he
was Jewish. But I have not been able to confirm that and he survived
the war apparently living in Austria.


Can anyone confirm that Kosel was Jewish and, if so, his parents
identities? Or could the 1938 ban have applied for some other reason?


Thanks.

"The tombstone of Eleazer BLOCH(K) in New Mount Sinai, St. Louis, Missouri,
USA describes him as
being born in Neimschitz on 20 June 1803 and dying in St. Louis 18 March

Any idea of where this small town might be, and what other names are
associated with it?

GABER-BRECKER #romania

Marlene Belkin <mbelkin@...>
 

Hi,

My maternal grandfather, Abram GABER was born on May 7, 1883 in
Suceava. My great-grandparents, Philip GABER and Rose BRECKER GABER
immigrated to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1886. I think they sailed
from Hamburg to Liverpool, and then to Philadelphia. Although Philip
GABER and Rose BRECKER GABER are buried in a Jewish cemetery, the
writing on their gravestone is entirely in English. I would assume
their Yiddish names are Feivel and Raizel. How can I continue to
research the GABER and BRECKER families?

I have the following documents: 1900 and 1910 census for Philip
and Rose GABER and 1930 census for their eldest son, David GABER.
I also have WW1 Draft Registration for Abram and David GABER. I
have a passenger list >from Hamburg to Liverpool for a Abraham Gaber...
but I'm not 100% sure if this is the document I'm looking for.

Thank-you,

and Helga Levy (Duisburg, Germany, 6 februari 1925 - Auschwitz, 19 november 1942)
Likely Louis Levy was first married to another wife given the birtdate of
Irma Levy. Maybe there were more childeren who did not come to Holland).
Germany.
The parents of Johanna ter Berg were:
Hartog ter Berg (Noordbroek Netherlands, 05.05.1856 - 24.07.1921

Inquiry re medal from Austrian army & Samuel Leiser Wien #general

Barrie Karp
 

Inquiry regarding my research for my grand uncle, Samuel Leiser Wien
and his parents, Yitzchak Wien (and Nettie?) & relating to a medal my
grand uncle Samuel Leiser Wien had (now in possession of my 2nd
cousin, his descendant/grandson) that he got in the Austrian army,
said to look like this one pictured at the link below, and described
as follows at this link (my cousin who has the medal says it has a
picture of Franz Joseph on it):

http://www.medal-medaille.com/product_info.php?cPath=31&;products_id=6204&osCsid=q51p6gn3m943tlp5g6hd877bi0

MOD: ( http://tinyurl.com/q8ezkge )

looks like Commemorative Jubilee Medal Armed Forces 1898, bronze medal
with image of Emperor Franz Joseph I

My inquiry to JewishGen: Regarding research about my grand uncle
Samuel Leiser Wien (1871-1959) (seeking his parents & siblings, his
trajectory & history before in US), I just tracked down that 2nd
cousin grandson descendant who says Samuel was in the Austrian army,
fled >from it, and possessed this medal (which my 2nd cousin has and we
located what looks like it at link above).

Previously, I've traced Samuel Leiser Wien's birth to 20 Jan 1871 in
Stanislawow, L'viv, Ukraine - Death 10 Sep 1959 in Brooklyn, NY. He
had 2 children in Jassy, Romania, before he arrived in NY:
Arrival: 1900 17 Jan Age: 28 New York, New York. Age: 29. Single,
destination br. Orchard St; cousin Moritz Dornbaum, 147 Essex St. This
Essex St. address will be Samuel's addr 1906/naturalization, &
Dornbaum's will then be Brklyn. But he & wife already hv 2 childr, she
& childr will arrive summer 1900, His spouse arrived summer 1900 in
NYC with the 2 children and then they had several more children. He
was a carpenter at first. His father was Yitchak Wien -- I have found
almost no data on him. My ggmother, Lena/Lea Berkowitz Wien was his
(probably not his first) wife and so my gmother & her younger siblings
may be Samuel's half-siblings.

It's possible that Samuel's mother's name was Nettie. Most of my known
relatives on this side of the family came >from Romania. Where were
they before? where were Samuel Leiser Wien and his father Yichack
Wien? and mother and siblings with that mother?

How can I use this new information about the Austrian army and the
medal to further my research into these matters? I didn't know he was
in that or any army. I don't know where he lived before Romania.

The few descendants of Samuel Leiser Wien are too far removed to know,
and never asked, and never were told. They didn't know of any siblings
of Samuel Leiser Wien, or of the Wien families that I know about,
though they are related, and even are in photos together (a relative's
wedding photo 1949, for example, where finally I have succeeded in
getting nearly everyone identified).

Thank you very much.

Registration is now open for this Summer's 34th IAJGS Conference #ciechanow #poland

bounce-2721572-772951@...
 

Greetings!

Registration for the IAJGS Conference is now open. It will be held in
Salt Lake City starting on July 27, 2014. Check out the conference
website at www.iajgs2014.org to learn more about our plans and to sign
up.

As the conference will kick off one day shy of the 100th anniversary
of the outbreak of World War I, it will focus on the impact of the
"War to End all Wars" on our families. Our ancestors served in the
armies of all of the participants, lived through horrific fighting
across the Jewish heartland of Eastern Europe, fled and immigrated to
new lands and started new lives. Many of us have stories to tell and
pictures to share. The conference will be encouraging our registrants
to upload these stories and pictures which we plan to compile into an
important memory book >from which we all can learn. We will also have a
major picture display at the conference to bring the experience alive
as only visuals can do.

Of course, there will be much more, including close up and personal
access to the world's largest genealogy library where there are
hundreds of thousands of genealogically significant books and hundreds
of millions of records that are not on the Internet. The program will
be wide-ranging focusing on areas that have not always been stressed
in the past, while retaining the best of historic programming and
workshops.

You can keep up with what we are planning by visiting our web site,
posting to our discussion forum, signing up for our blog and following
us on Facebook and Twitter. Just click on links at www.iajgs2014.org
to sign up and stay current. Come join your friends for a memorable,
genealogically valuable and rewarding experience.

All the best for a terrific year!

Need help locating donated Torah in Israel #general

GLebo111@...
 

Dear Genners,

In 1955 my grandmother Pauline Strakoffsky moved to Tel Aviv when she was
in her 80's. She lived at the Rest Home for the Solitary Aged at 40 Avodah
St. in Tel Aviv. While she was living there, she donated a Torah to the
facility.

I don't know if the facility is still there or if it relocated but I'd
very much like to locate the Torah that she donated. Can anyone in Tel Aviv
offer any assistance?

Thank you to everyone who contacted me with suggestions concerning my

the name Theodore TANENBAUM.
Unfortunately, I still don't have any verifiable information beyond his

locate any descendants....possibly in Montreal, Canada."

Thank you to everyone who contacted me with suggestions concerning my
great uncle Tevye SUSID (b. about 1885, Ostroh, Ukraine) who may have adopted
the name Theodore TANENBAUM.
Unfortunately, I still don't have any verifiable information beyond his
residence in Montreal in 1930. Maybe someday, something new will pop up.
In the meantime, I will just shrug my shoulders and wait.
