civilian staff, American occupation of Germany: ASCH #general

Irene Newhouse
 

I've just learned that the wife of one of my relatives worked as
a secretary with the American occupation forces in Germany after WWII,
at Dachau. Does anyone know how to pick up her paper trail?
The secretary was Dorothea ASCH. I don't know her maiden name, or if
she Americanized her name. Her husband is my relative, Hermann ASCH,
born in Breslau, now Wroclaw ca. 1900 - I only have one birth date
among his siblings - his oldest sister, Charlotte, was born in 1892.
His parents were Robert ASCH, a gynecologist, and Kaethe (Katharina
Johanna) nee L'ARRONGE.

Thanks for your help!

Re: [Some of my own] Research in the Netherlands #germany

Eva Lawrence
 

In 1852 my ancestor, Anselm UNGER/UNGAR ( born in Bonn in 1804)
commissioned the packet ship SS Sumner departing May 21st, 1852 from
Antwerp, to take a company of would-be emigrants to New Orleans. I have
his hand-written diary of the trip. He was aided in Holland by an agent,
'Herr MAAS', and I wondered if it would be possible to find out anything
about this gentleman. MAAS does seem to be a Jewish family name. Either
UNGER or Herr MAAS must have communicated
with Captain Dyer or with the owners of the vessel.
Also it seems possible that UNGER spent time in Antwerp before May 1852,
since he had to "come back" to Bonn at the outset of the journey. Unger was
apparently in hiding >from the Prussian police - he had been prominent in the
Bonn uprising led by Gottfried KINKEL and had been put on trial in Cologne
in January 1851.
I'm wondering whether there is any possibility of finding records of any
sort about this episode, to supplement all the information I've already
got about his activities in Bonn and his arrival in America.

UNGER's project proved a bit of a failure, and he returned to Germany -
I don't have a record of his return journey either, don't even know the
exact date, but perhaps he came back the way he'd come. Are there any
records of incoming passengers for Antwerp harbour for 1852- 1867?

Any suggestions or help would be very much appreciated. Best wishes

Researching MOLDAUER, TOPF #general

Shelley Mitchell
 

My great grandfather, Szymon (Simon) MOLDAUER, married my great
grandmother, Matel TERNER, presumably in the late 1880's. She was
from Buczacz and they lived in Kolomea. They produced 7 children.
I know nothing about my great grandfather; neither his date nor
location of birth. He died at the beginning of 1941.

My other great grandfather, Szloma TOPF, married my great
grandmother, Feige KINIGSBRG, presumably in the late 1880's. She was
from Kolomea and they lived in Kolomea. I know nothing about this
great grandfather; neither his date nor location of birth. He died
around 1902 after having remarried.

I would like to know more about these great grandfathers besides
their dates of death. Please contact me if you have any information
to share.

Thank you.

Re: The name Sheelum (?) #general

tom
 

You have provided neither time nor place, nor
whether it's a given name, or even the likely
gender of the individual. It's helpful to
include as much information as you already know,
or suspect, because it will help get you better
responses.

In this case, I suspect that it's a yiddishized
pronunciation of shalom, which was used as a
given name, and possibly connected with Shlomo
(i.e. Solomon). (A yiddish expert could possibly
elaborate on the "drift" of vowels across the
range of yiddish-speaking countries, such that
"sholem" becomes "shoolem" and "sheelum".)

FABIAN Family request - Berlin/Brazil #general

Alexander Watson <a.watson.genas@...>
 

Hello,

1. Following one of my last requests for help in finding information
about my family, a lady kindly passed on information about a woman
called Ellen Margot FABIAN. She was born in Berlin in 1920, her Berlin
address is given as Nicolasburger Str 11. She fled with her parents to
Brazil. Her father was called Hans, I have been unable, as yet to find
out anything more about Hans Fabian: this person might very well have
been my great-great uncle. Any information would be most welcome.

Best regards
