ROSENBAUM-19th cent. Tveria (Tiberius) #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My maternal great grandfather, Yacov Gedalia SCHECHTER's, grandfather
Yisrael ben Yosef ( family name unknown) came to Eretz Yisrael
(Palestine) during the first half of the 19th cent. and seems to have
gone first to Zfat and at some point to Tveria.

One of my cousins believes that his family name was ROSENBAUM
(spelling?) and that his children later changed it to SCHECHTER as per
their profession (Shochet/ritual butcher). His children did not make
aliya as their father did (to die here as many others did).

The book "Tveria" published several decades ago has a list of family
names which appear in any sources in Tveria and lists a ROSENBOIM
without giving any details of his first name, years, origin etc.

Does anyone know details of the above ROSENBOIM who lived in Tveria at
some point in history?

TIA

Yoni Ben-Ari, Jerusalem

Ships from Szczecin to Haifa in 1948 #general

charles goldenzon
 

A relative of mine left the port of Szczecin (Poland) in 25 November 1948 at 4pm
to Haifa. The translation of a Yiddish postcard reads the name of the ship as
"Biniavisky". Unfortunately I could not find any ship with this name.

Can anyone help a) identifying the real name of the ship and b) indicating any
direction for me to obtain a passengers list?

Here is another piece for you:

Symeha Lisenker was in 1940 census in NY as a lodger, Township:A D 3
(now Manhattan Borough) page 4B family 89 line 62 - born 1902 Russia
residing at 242 West 22nd St NY he was also there in 1935 - he is
single working as a bus boy in a cafeteria and he is not a citizen. I
would expect he died in NY but notice the spelling.

Re: Hungarian "Aryanization" database? #hungary

edelman@...
 

Hi Rick,

Unlike Slovakia, the territories annexed to Hungary didn't have formal
Aryanization, at least in the same way as Slovakia did. In Slovakia it
was a slow process, also with exemptions... whereas in Hungary
"[...]full-scale confiscation began in May 1944 concurrent with the
deportations to Auschwitz; the Hungarian government declared that Jewish
assets were now viewed as Hungarian national property. In practice,
however, confiscation in Hungary became a competition between private
looters, various state agencies, and also the Germans to secure what
they could under the chaotic conditions of sudden ghettoization." -

Dear H-SIG,

The Slovak Ustav Pamati Naroda -- historical institution of national heritage/memory -- has databases on the "Aryanization" (i.e., theft -- http://www.upn.gov.sk/arizacie/)and liquidation (http://www.upn.gov.sk/likvidacie/)of Jewish businesses on the territory of the Slovak state during World War II.

Regrettably, the databases do not cover territories annexed to Hungary in 1938 or 1939.


I am wondering if there are similar databases on-line for Hungary?


Or does anyone know of an institution to which one could turn to ask about such matters (in English, German, French or Czech/Slovak)? Regrettably, I don't speak Hungarian.


Thank you very much,

"Quilts to Remember" Display, Portland, Oregon #general

pattitwirler@...
 

New display in Portland, Oregon - Multnomah Art Center 7688 SW Capitol Hwy.
"Quilts to Remember."

Morris SHLAIFER, retired tailor ( 1889 Odessa, Ukraine- 1971 Portland,
Oregon) created a reversible quilt made of umbrella silks with matching
pillow filled with down >from the "old country". It was a gift to a 13
year old neighbor girl in the 1950's. One side of the quilt are triangles
and the other are squares. This quilt and the resulting story were lovingly
protected and preserved so that others could know about the man and enjoy
the beauty of the unusual quilt. Since Morris and his wife Becky BERNSTEIN
SHLAIFER had no children of their own, the now grown neighbor girl has done
extensive research and genealogy as way to honor the beautiful quilt and the
man who created it. The display and resulting stories will be available
through January 2017.

Tours of Birobizhan #general

Hallie Carmen <hallie.carmen1@...>
 

Hello, I am a college student who will be studying abroad in Harbin,
China this spring. Because of Harbin's close proximity to the Russian
border I was hoping that I could visit Birobizhan,the capital of
Stalin's failed Jewish autonomous region. I do not speak Russian and
do not think I should travel alone there.

Does anyone know of any reliable tourist groups or independent tour
guides that give tours in English in Birobizhan? Has anyone ever been
to Birobizhan and gone on a tour?

Best,

Born in "Castle, Germany" #germany

joshualevy
 

One of my earliest American ancestors was born, according to her 1906 San
Francisco death certificate, in "Castle, Germany".  Her obituary says she
was born in "Castel, Germany".  (I assume both of these were provided by
an American child or grandchild.)

My ancestor's census forms said she was born in Hessen (in 1860),
 Hesse-Darmstadt (in 1870), and Prussia (in 1880).  I'm just going
to assume that "Castle" refers to a city, and not a stone building,
because if it is a stone building, then I have nothing, and should stop now.

By using two databases in JewishGen, plus some resources in GerSig's site,
and Google, I have found a Kassel (sometimes Cassel) in Hesse and a
Castell in Bavaria.  In the perfect world, there would be some animated
map of Germany, where you could set a pin for a city, and a slider to set
the year, and then see what polity the city was part of in different years.
 Does anyone know of such a thing?

My questions are as follows:
* Are there any other "Castle, Germany" places that I should look at?
* Which of these cities should I research first?
* Is one of these cities so obviously the right one, that I should not
bother to research the other?

Thanks for any help.
