Detroit Orphanage and US Army records #general

bernerfolk
 

I'm trying to learn the fate and family of a female immigrant cousin
who left NYC for Detroit, probably between 1910-1925. An elderly
cousin recalls hearing she had died and someone trying,
unsuccessfully, to place her son with family back in NY. I found
a possible son in the Detroit Hebrew Orphan's Home in 1930 and a
couple of military records, all of which may or may not be for the
family I'm looking for.

I've spoken with YIVO where they were kind enough to check their
microfilm of records >from the Detroit social services agencies but
they didn't find a record for this individual, and Hebrew Union
Archive had no records of this type. Does anyone have any
suggestions for locating information on the boy in the Detroit
Hebrew Orphanage in 1930?

The National Jewish Welfare Board, Bureau of War Records, has an
Alphabetical Card showing "authenticated" the soldier was wounded
in Europe, inquiry date 7/24/45. The source of the information
is given as "Mar. 1945 Mo. rep .sub. by S. Saferstein-in mo.
rep. source bk."

~ Can anyone translate this bureaucratic shorthand?
~ Are there likely additional records >from this organization which
could be helpful in learning this soldier's family ties?

NARA provides an Army Serial Number, branch of service, enlistment date, etc.
~ Is it possible to request WWII US Army personnel records? Are
they likely to provide family information if the soldier was an orphan?

Any suggestions would be appreciated,
Sherri Venditti

Re: Stolpersteine and Memorial Plaques #germany

suzetarica@...
 

Hello, I wanted to mention as an alternative to Stolpersteine, the example
of my small town in Rheinland-Pfalz, Bollendorf. There was a community
of about 100 Jews. About 50 of them died in the Holocaust. The synagogue
had been burned down. We, the descendants, were able to ask the town for
a large memorial plaque offered by the mayor and town council, (who by
the way had no idea there had been such a vibrant Jewish community)
and the descendants of the Bollendorf community themselves paid for
another plaque listing all the full names and dates of the victims.
They both are on a wall along the town cemetery, in a public place.
They show the staggering extent of the destruction in one place.

I discovered this website which has many Jewish family trees on it and I
found that there are on it a number of persons with my family name. Also one
of my friends found a number of relatives on this website.

The question is: where did the people who are in charge of this website get
the information?

Since there is no way of contacting the website, I posted a message on the
Jewishgen discussion group and did get >from Logan Kleinwachs the information
on the organization and the people behind it.

It is an organization with the name of Sefarad House, located in Northampton
in the UK (I am omitting the street address and postal code). The person in
charge of the website seems to be a Mr. Jacob Maldonado.

If anyone knows anything about this organization I would appreciate a
response.

Dear Gunther,
the suggestion to put plates into walls seems to be impratical, because
you would need an agreement with each individual house owner (or
owners!), while the pavements are city property, and the city
administrations can do there or allow whatever they decide to do. Such a
situation arose e.g. in my town here when many years ago a plate was
supposed to be affixed into the wall of the house where originally the
local synagoge stood. The house owners refused to allow that, so the
city erected a small monument in front of the house - the memorial
meetings in November have been taking place there ever since ...

With kind regards Fritz Neubauer, North Germany

Friedner Immigrants in 1888 - Krakau to New York #galicia

Debbie Wetlaufer <growingatree@...>
 

I am trying to learn more about four people listed on a passenger list
from 1888: Cherne FRIEDNER (28), Moritz FRIEDNER (17), Leon
FRIEDNER (9) and Aron HOCHFELD (12), all of Krakau (Krakow),
Galizien. A passenger list >from the second leg of their trip indicates
that they were all of "Russian ethnicity." On May 15, 1888, the four
departed >from Hamburg en route to Leith (Scotland) aboard the ship
"Coblenz." They then continued >from Glasgow, Scotland, and arrived
in the port of New York aboard the ship "Anchoria" on Jun 4 1888.

Unfortunately, I have found little about them on Ancestry.com. I
would like to confirm/disprove the theory that "Moritz FRIEDNER" of
the passenger list is "Morris FRIEDNER," my 2x Great Grandfather.

About Morris FRIEDNER

I have documented a good bit about my 2x Great Grandfather, to include census
records, city directories, a marriage record, death record, burial information
and records for his children. But, I cannot yet be sure that the "Moritz FRIEDNER"
in the passenger lists is the same man.=20

According to Census records, my "Morris FRIEDNER" in 1871 or 1872
in Austria. He arrived in the US between 1884-1887. The first record
I have for him is for May 1892 when he married his wife Amalia
LUBECK (aka Amalie LUBESK) in Chicago, Illinois. Their eldest children
Ralph FRIEDNER (aka Ruby) and Isabel FRIEDNER (aka Bella) were born
in Chicago. They then moved to New York where several additional
children were born (Ernst, Bertha, Rebecca (aka Refe), Joseph and Elias).
Elias died in 1905 and is buried in Baron Hirsch Cemetery (Staten
Island NY).

Morris is buried in Washington Cemetery (Brooklyn, NY). Although his
headstone appears to be prepared for two burials, the second plot
appears to be unused. Following his death, his wife Amalia (LUBECK)
FRIEDNER moved to Los Angeles, California around 1940 where her
daughter Isabel (Friedner) STEINBERG was living with her husband
Morris STEINBERG. There, she married Samuel BLEICH. Amalia, her
second husband Samuel, her daughter Isabel and son-in-law Morris
are all buried in Beth Olam Cemetery (part of Hollywood Forever
Cemetery). I have been told that Amalia's headstone reads, "Malka,
daughter of Zalman."

Goal: I would like to learn more about Cherne FRIEDNER, Moritz
FRIEDNER, Leon FRIEDNER and Aron HOCHFELD to try to make a
better assessment as to whether the Moritz Friedner of the passenger
list is my 2x Great Grandfather, Morris Friedner.... and, if so, how
they are related.

(European Union) Proposed Data Privacy Regulation - Newspaper Articles Suggest No Consensus Between MEPs and Governments; Globalization of Data Privacy Protection Legislation #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The European Union's Proposed Data Privacy Regulation which would establish
the individual's "right to be forgotten" and the "right to be erased" on
data issues by Internet providers and others has been discussed previously
on this discussion list and the IAJGS Public Records Access Alert. It
would require an individual's consent before businesses can share their
personal data. The proposed regulation aims to overhaul the current
patchwork of national legislation into one rule of law for all EU member
states. To access IAJGS Pubic Records access Alert archives see below.

Two recent newspaper articles with different opinions of what is happening
suggests there are major differences between Members of European Parliament
(MEPs) and the heads of the various governments of the 28-member states.

Additionally in the Hague, on March 11, a Court scrapped the Netherlands'
data retention law saying it breaches privacy of telephone and Internet
users. Countries outside the EU - Australia and Brazil - are also adopting
data regulation protections.

The issue of data privacy and access is one that is a global issue and bears
watching.

To read the entire posting go to the IAJGS Records access Alert.

IAJGS continues to monitor the actions relative to the data privacy
regulation due to the concerns that genealogically-relevant data may be
prevented >from being accessed due to the "right to be forgotten" and the
"right to be erased".
