WEISSBERGER-SHLEZINGER plus info on Prose and Putzing camp #general

David Zoldan
 

Hello,

My grandmother was Kreindel or Klara ZOLDAN nee WEISSBERGER. She was
born and grew up in Munkatch but the family may have moved >from greater
Hungary before she was born?? not sure.

Kreindel (Klara) was the daughter of Efraim Zalman (Solomon) WEISSBERGER
and Devorah (Vera) SHLEZINGER. Her siblings were Chaim Sender, Avraham
(Bumi), Leah, Malka, Sara Rivka, Nachman. Avraham Bumi survived the war.

Efraim Zalmans was one of at least four children including Hirsh Melech
and Avraham born to their mother Sheindel WEISSBERGER.

Devorah was the daughter of Yitzchak Eizik and Sima SHLEZINGER. Devorahs
known siblings are Zelig (Zoli), Shlomo, David, Yaakov, Yehuda. Yehuda
SHLEZINGER has a son Zoli (US) and a daughter Sima (Russia).

Recently I found some documents which lists some information about the
camps my grandmother was in.

>from May, 1944 she entered Auschwitz for about 6 weeks.
>from July 1944 she entered Prose camp until the Russian invasion.
>from Russian invasion till end of April 1945 she was in Putzing camp.

My questions are:

1) Can anyone help with the above WEISSBERGER or SHLEZINGER family.
2) I googled the camps which I listed, i.e. Prose Camp and Putzing Camp
but found nothing. I am sure the spelling is off, this must be the way
it was heard by the one who filled out the form I referenced. What could
the names of these camps be and what info do we have about these camps.
Also, what could I research about Auschwitz for the months she was there
May and June 1944.
3) Although grandmas mother and most siblings seem to have been killed
immediately at Auschwitz, it seems that her father Efraim Zalman
(Solomon) WEISSBERGER wasn't killed right away and may have lived into
1945. What is available to me to research what happened to him and his
daughter, my grandmother.

I would be grateful for any help, leads, comments.

Hello

Yesterday I posted a marriage contract in ViewMate of a marriage in 1905 in
Konin, Poland, in Russian language and got some help.

This is the link to the viewmate image
http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/responselist.asp?key=42852.

The groom is supposed to be >from "Unkev? in Turskeyl area", Poland.
Does anyone know what could this be?

I can't find any village that looks like this. Any help greatly appreciated.

Joseph Levine aka Joe Evans #yiddish

Marilyn Robinson
 

My great uncle, Joseph LEVINE, was an actor: vaudeville, comedy, song & dance.
I have found newspaper clippings >from his time in vaudeville, aspart of
the 2-man act FOX & EVANS, (about 1908-1926?), on Fulton Postcards. There was
also a clipping indicating that the two men purchased a rollerskating rink in
Richfield Springs, NY in November, 1932. They also appeared on stage again
in May, 1932 at the Carleton Theatre in NY, according to the Long Island
Sunday Press.

His WWI Draft registration was in Chicago, although his residence was
with his sister, Esther Taufield, in the Bronx (1216 Hoe Av).The card
showed that he was a performer working for Western Vaudeville.
He was born in May 1885.

I have not been able to find any records for Joe beyond November, 1932.
Does anyone have any other ideas?

Thank you,

Re: Would Jews be identified as soldiers on marriage record? #general

Jules Levin
 

My ggm's brother Meir BEREGOVSKY was one of the founders of the Finnish
Jewish community. His name appears on a list of Jews residing in Viipuri
(Vyborg). All those who were retired soldiers [most, but not all residents]
are ID'd as such, along with wife and children. He was a sergeant.

Military status was important, since an honorable discharge meant many
advantages for the whole family, including the right to retain sidearm and
live outside the Pale.

I'll repeat for the group what I sent privately to Pauline Rosenberg, >from
my own experience with military designations on marriage records in the All
Lithuania Database.

When my great-uncle married in Kovno Gubernia in 1889, the comment in the
record was "husband is a retired squaddy". Squaddy is an old British term
meaning enlisted man, as in a member of a squad. So, at least in the Kovno city
records of the late 1800s, military service was sometimes noted. His future
father-in-law is also designated on his children's records as a "retired
private soldier >from village Aleksotas", which was a suburb of Kovno city.

Can you help name a baby? (Cedar Park Cemetery, Paramus NJ, lookup request) #general

Renee Steinig
 

My cousin, who is "due" very soon, might name the baby for her great-aunt Hilde,
but she doesn't know Hilde's Hebrew name. Unfortunately, I don't have it in my
records. I do know that Hilde -- born 1912 in Huenfeld, Germany -- was
originally Brunhilde.

We're hoping that a Hebrew name is on Hilde's gravestone at Cedar Park Cemetery
in Paramus, NJ. I'd go there myself but can't for two weeks, and I'm afraid the
baby won't wait! Is there anyone out there who lives near Cedar Park and would
be willing to take a look? I can provide details, including the exact location
of the grave.

Thank you.
