News about Jenny FRANKENTHALER Levi #general

Liz Hanellin
 

Dear Jewish Genners,

It's been a while since I posted about this, but I would like to
share with you the recent very meaningful information that ITS
sent me today regarding my great-aunt Jenny Levi nee FRANKENTHALER
and her family, >from Germany.

For some time now, I have been trying to learn the fate of Jenny,
her husband Ludwig, and their daughter. On my own, and with the
help of several Jewish Genners, I was able to learn that Jenny and
Ludwig moved >from the Wurzburg area to Frankfurt in 1939; however,
without a marriage date I was never able to confirm any additional
information about Ludwig and I only had anecdotal information (>from
my family) that they had a daughter.

ITS was able to provide me with a birthdate for Ludwig and,
unfortunately, also to confirm that he was killed in Majdanek on
September 25, 1942. He was born in Mannheim, on April 10, 1909
(making him 11 years younger than Jenny!).

In addition, ITS was able to find the birthdate and name of Jenny
and Ludwig's daughter, Judis Hadasse (b. June 2, 1941). This is
amazing information for me -- to be able to put a name to that
little person who was born into such turmoil! >from the records,
it seems that she was born at Saalburgstrasse 5, in Frankfurt,
and a midwife (Hebamme) named Th.(Therese?) Wiegand was attending.
On Judis' birth record, her father is listed as Gartner Ludwig
Levi, and another record ITS sent me stated that, in Frankfurt,
Ludwig forcibly worked with "Jakob Astheimer," gardening, so I
suspect that this may have been his trade.

Unfortunately, ITS was not able to tell me the fate of Jenny or
Judis, so the search continues....

If any of the information above sparks new thoughts or ideas,
please do not hesitate to be in touch! I would be happy to learn
more about Ludwig's side of the family as well, if there are any
Mannheim Levis or Levys out there.

Apologies to those of you who will read this both here and on the
German SIG, but I thought it was worth sharing with everyone!

Best,

Re: GALLER surname originally from Pomerania area in Poland #general

Roger Lustig
 

Dear Angie:
Help us help you! How did you discover that your family was Jewish? What
points toward Pomerania?

Menk's _Dictionary of German Jewish Surnames_ doesn't include GALLER,
nor have I encountered the surname, nor is it on the Pomeranian or other
Prussian surname-adoption lists. (GELLER is very rare too among German
Jews.)

But JRI-Poland shows that there were GALLERs in Galicia, and a few in
Congress Poland as well.

help me if you have any information. Thank you.

1906 Vilna Province State Duma Elections #general

Marilyn Robinson
 

Is there a political map showing the various electoral precincts
during the 1906 Vilna State Duma elections? Precinct 3 appears to
have a large concentration of Jewish voters but I don't know what
towns, villages, etc. would be in that precinct or in other
precincts.

MALKES/MARCUS- Cleveland, Chesed Shel Emeth, The Jewish World, JD Deutsch Funeral Home #general

Roberta Solit
 

Yesterday, after 25 years of searching, I found both the date of
death and resting place of my elusive grandfather Myer Malkes, also
known as Meyer Marcus by looking at US Wills and Probate Records on
Ancestry.com. I learned that he died on or about December 31, 1917
and was buried in Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery on January 3, 1918.
His death was announced in The Jewish World, a newspaper in
Cleveland. Is there an archive for old issues of The Jewish World?
It also appeared in the NY Jewish Forward.
Are there records for the JD Deutsch Funeral Home in Cleveland?
The 20 pages of records >from the Probate court of Cleveland contain
wonderful information that answered many questions and led to new
ones. I highly recommend searching this database.

Re: Seeking Sarah BOWMAN death certificate (NY) #general

Joseph Fibel
 

When I tried to get a death certificate for my grandfather who is
buried in Queens (NY), there was none.

After a time, I realized that he had died and been buried in the
family plot in Easton, PA. When the family moved to NYC and purchased
a new plot here they had him disinterred and moved to the new plot in
Queens. I was able to get a death certificate >from Easton.
