Would anyone out there have a list of the early settlers of Alliance Farming
Community, which was located in Pittsgrove, Salem County, South Jersey.

(US) Rare Mauthausen Photographs Found in Attic in North Hollywood #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

While cleaning out his home in preparation to move, a retired truck driver
found 13 photographs in the back of a cupboard. The photographs were taken
by his late father-in-law, Ken Parker, who was an U.S. army photographer in
World War II. The photographs were found along with an Army uniform and
confiscated German pistol. The photographs depict the liberation of
Mauthausen, one of the Nazi concentration camps. Mauthausen in Austria, had
a gas chamber, torture instruments and medical experimentation. The U.S.
Army arrived in the camp on May 5, 1945 and found 18,000 prisoners. Parker
used his camera in the documentation by the Allies for the purpose of
prosecuting the Germans for war crimes and alerting the public to the atrocities.

Rather than discard them his wife, daughter of Ken Parker, donated them.
She sent the photographs to the Jewish Journal which published them in the
article about the "find". Some of the photographs also made it to the
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Photo Archive.

Reische: Unable to determine place of origin - what am I missing? #general

Alan Reische
 

I have identified my great-grandparents, who were known in this country
as 'Simon and Miriam Reische'. I have at least their approximate date of
entry to New York (1881), their dates of death and a picture of their
headstones, with a translation provided by another generous JewishGen. I
can follow them through the census and city directories databases at
JewishGen and Ancestry. When I try to search for them in the immigrant
databases under all surname variations I can think of, I come up empty.
I have posted a general inquiry in the Forum, with no responses, and
inquiries to others searching similar names gets no response. I
contacted a genealogist in Poland who can find no trace of them under
that surname in Rzezsow (my guess as to possible place of origin). The
only link I can find is a designation of my grandfather as ''Galician'
in some early records, which changed to 'Austrian' following his
marriage, and their early residence on Ridge Street LES, near a Zolina shul.

Comparing their Hebrew names on the headstones to their dissimilar
assumed names here I'm speculating that there was a significant name
change or Anglicization. All other family members >from that branch used
the name 'Reische' with its somewhat unusual spelling I seem to be at a
dead end. I did come across translations which state that 'Reische'
means wealthy (hardly true of an immigrant tailor).

With this modest information, and the older generation now gone are
there obvious steps I've missed that might be helpful? Is it likely that
there's a clue on their headstone, which translate as follows?

"Our Dear Father, Our teacher and Rabbi, Yishai (Pronounce Yee-shy - Means Jesse in
English) Gavriel the son of Avraham Mordechai Died the 2nd of Iyar

The Important (Distinguished) Woman, our teacher,Miriam the daughter of Yisrael
Meir "Fishatsloff?" Died the 26 of Iyar"

Please feel free to respond privately if the subject is not of general
interest, although I would guess that a number of JewishGen searchers
may encounter this problem.

Viewmate - town identification on death record #general

David Birnbaum
 

I've posted a 19th death record >from Bardejov (Bartfa) then in Hungary, now in
Slovakia mentioning the name of a town or village that looks like Baber but which I
cannot identify and may be transcribing wrongly. The person concerned (Juda
Steinbach) lived in Zborov (then Zboro, Saros, Hungary) and had relatives born in
that area so I would expect Baber to be not too far away. Any help in identifying
the town would be appreciated.
