Markstein and Hochwald Families #austria-czech

daal@...
 

Hi Fellow Researchers, namely: Yvonne Ward; David Lean; Eileen Crawford,
Maud Michal Beer, Eva Caroline Lawrence; Pauline Crump; Dominique Dubois;
John Schaffe and Deborah Guth

Thank you most sincerely for answering my questions regarding the above
families and their situations following their entries into the UK. This will
take some time to absorb and I shall certainly share any further information
with you.

I did have a document unlocked at The National Archives for Felix Michael
Hochwald which really paid dividends; the document had been closed for 100
years and I certainly should not have been around at that time!

You might find a book I am reading of interest - Flight >from the Reich by
Deborah Dwork and Robert Jan Van Pelt. Both authors have also written
separately.

Kind regards

My great-aunt and her husband and their 2 very young children managed to get
to Great Britain after the Anschluss >from Vienna. They had barely any
money. They all were interned on the Isle of Mann. In fact, this cousin
eventually gave birth to her third child while she was interned.

WEINTRAUB FROM ZWOLEN, POLAND #poland

tina levine
 

My late mother in law was liberated >from Bergen-Belsen in April 1945.
On a genealogy website I found her Brazilian immigration card issued
by the Brazilian Consulate in Paris in May 1946. She was in transit
to Bolivia where she arrived in July 1946. On the immigration card
her Polish Passport number, which was issued by the Polish Consulate
in Paris in April 1946, is listed.

Is there any way I can obtain a copy of her Polish Passport
application based on the Passport number listed? If so, which
embassy or consulate would I have to contact?

Who would have paid for her trip and would there be existing records?

Thank you for any information or ideas you can share.

RAUZUK surname from Vilkaviskis #lithuania

Mark Strauss
 

A couple of weeks ago, I posted about new connections with
regard to my RAUZUK family >from Vilkaviskis. One question for
this group. Does anyone have any idea about the origins of the
surname RAUZUK? Does it mean anything? Does it reference a
geographical place...or is it a patronymic name that suggests
one of my ancestors might have had the given name of Rauz,
which led to the surname RAUZUK?

I'd be interested in thoughts on this, since it is not a
common surname.

WEINTRAUB FROM ZWOLEN, POLAND #poland

tina levine
 

I was told by my mother in law that none of her family survived the holocaust.
While searching on a genealogy website today I found a gentleman with
the same surname as her and >from the same town in Poland (Zwolen, near
Radom.) Now I'm wondering if they might have been cousins.

Her parents were Isaak and Feiga Weintraub.
The gentleman's name was Josef Weintraub, >from Zwolen Poland, born 1922
to Shulem and Malka, nee Zeidenbaum. He immigrated to Sao Paulo, Brazil
in 1946 >from Italy.

Anyone have suggestions for searching his descendants to see if there
is a link to my mother-in-law's family?

FamilySearch Extends Deadline for Ordering Microfilms One Week to September 7 #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

I recently sent an email reminding people that August 31 was the last date
to order microfilms >from FamilySearch and after that no further orders will
be permitted. This week FamilySearch ran into a problem that prevented some
people who were ordering microfilms to be able to do so, which resulted from
a computer software upgrade in the Family Search catalog system. The
software situation was remedied and FamilySearch has extended their deadline
for ordering microfilms for one week only -until September 7.
