NAVIGATION GUIDE - Locating town data on JewishGen #germany

Phyllis Kramer
 

JewishGenner Alan Shuchat recently suggested a great technique for
finding towns.....
"Here's a technique for solving problems like this. The Communities Main Page
on JewishGen lets you search for all towns within up to 30 miles of the
latitude and longitude of a given location."

And then he added
"Unfortunately, it's hard to find that page directly."

Right you are Alan...so here's how to do it...

1.Go to any JewishGen page and click on the Database Oval.
2. Then click on ...Search for places by name The JewishGen Gazetteer
3. Then you have 3 choices:
....a..The JewishGen Communities Database (~6,000 places).
....b.. Search for places by name The JewishGen Gazetteer
...c. Search for places by location Radius Search (within 30 miles)

happy hunting ! Phyllis Kramer, vp, education, JewishGen

Is there anyone going to the Manhatten dept. of records that could do a look up for
me.The person in question was a David Braunstein, 1 year old. All I am looking for
is who the parents were and maybe where the child is buried. The death cert. is
#21307.

Thank you.

Re: ships from Danzig #general

A. E. Jordan
 

From: Roberta Sheps rsheps@ntlworld.com
has anyone heard of the "Vedic"?

Yes there was a ship named Vedic owned by White Star Line (think owners of the
Titanic). White Star was one of the largest and leading shipping companies in the
late 1800s and early 1900s. The ship was built in Belfast at the famous Harland &
Wolff shipyard (think Titanic again) but this was a small ship. Her interior
space was under 10,000 tons and she was just 460 feet long. She carried 1,250
passengers all in third class (think steerage) and mostly operated between England
and Canada. She sailed all through the 1920s and was scrapped in 1934.

If you type "ship Vedic" into Google you will get more information including
pictures of the ship.

Re: Union - Blaetter der Emigration #germany

DAVID LEWIN <davidlewin@...>
 

I have now learned some more about the subject and wonder whether this may bring us nearer to my goal - to get
"Union - Blaetter der Emigration" digitized for all researchers to gain access to this important publication.

The publisher H O SIMON was called Hans. He was born in 1887 and died 1961 (presumably in Johannesburg). Does anyone know anything about his family?
Before escaping to South Africa he was a SPORT publisher in Germany. Three of his works are available in the Deutschen Digitalen Bibliothek - the German National Digital Library. He was President and Chairman of the "Independent Cultural Association", insrumental in getting "Our Parents Home" established, Published under the name of Presto Advertising, >from 48 Walter Wise's Building, 50 Joubert Street, Johannesburg.

"Union - Blaetter der Emigration" exists today in paper format at the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek and in Microfilm (until September 1948) at at least 6 locations. After September 1948 the title changed to "Union - Contemporary Cultural Review "

I would like your help to
1. Find the Simon family
2. Get the digitizing to become a reality

Thank you

Alter Bencian Gotlib #general

vangheluwe.smietan
 

I am searching informations about Alter Bencian Gotlib (Siedlce 1884 (birth record
in 1888)- Tel Aviv February 26, 1956). He moved with his parents in 1890 to Warsaw,
and there it appear that he first married in Warsaw, 1907, march 19, when he was 23
y o, with Dwojra Gryncejg, 22 y o, wich is the g-g-aunt of mi wife.

He perhaps later married with Ester Mizrahi
( http://www.geni.com/people/Ben-Zion-Yedidia/4373313 ) This must be confimed.

More information about Alter Bencian are available on
http://yleksikon.blogspot.fr/2015/05/alter-ben-tsiyon-gotlib.html

I really dont know how mant time the lifes of Alter Bencian and of Dwojra Gryncejg
was crossed. I would have pictures of him and his first wife, and or contact with
his descendants in Israel.

In addition, I posted a picture on Jewishgen Viewmate nr 6486
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/v_filterarchivelist.asp?x_ID=6486&z_ID=%3D%2C%2C
I dont think that is their picture, but this one of relatives of Dwojra.
