MILLERs of Billerica #general

robgoudey@...
 

Hello everyone.
Is anyone on this list related to Sam MILLER and Sarah NEWMARK of Billerica?
They migrated >from the Baltic regions, now Latvia and Lithuania), arriving
in New York in the early 1880s. According to census records it appears that
they spoke both German and Hebrew in their homeland. They were farmers in
Billerica MA between about 1900 and the late 1930s.

Here is a list of their offspring with dates and places of birth:
Charles Jacob, Oct 1884, New York
Mary, March 1887, New York
Benjamin, Jan 1890, New York
Louis, July 1892, Vermont
David, May 1894, Massachusetts
Dorothy, Jan 1897, Massachusetts
Henry, Dec 1898, Missouri
Helena, 1901 or 1903, Massachusetts
Julius S, May 1909, Massachusetts

I found the marriage record for Charles Jacob Miller, who was a Boston
lawyer. He was married to Ida E Mazur by Rabbi Phineas Israeli in Boston in
Nov 1910.

Julius was married to Alice Brown in Brookline in April 1934.

Any information about members of this family would be very much welcomed.

Thank you.
Rob Goudey.

Re: My Great-Great-Grandfather's first wife #general

Jenny Schwartzberg
 

Dear all,

I add a story to this thread.

One of the main reasons for divorce among Jews of that time was if the wife
was considered to be barren.
My great-great-aunt Broche Telechansky was happily married to a young Jewish
man but they had no children, so they were forced to divorce. My ggaunt was
married off to Joseph Farber, an older widower with young children, and to
her surprise, she had a girl and a boy as well after her marriage. After
Joseph died, she remarried a 3rd time, no children. I finally figured out her
3rd married name since she used it on her US passenger manifest. In the US
she used the Farber name. I've never managed to discover the name of her
first husband. I doubt his 2nd marriage resulted in children!

Yours,
Jenny Schwartzberg

Family GOLDBERG or BENJAMIN in New York #general

Daniel Gleek
 

I am looking for a family in New York using the surname GOLDBERG or BENJAMIN.

It is unclear which was the surname the family used in NY, but the children
were called Arthur, Ruth and Ada.

The children born in the early 1900s and the parents were Annie/Eva DORF/DOFF
(short and stout!) and Abraham BENJAMIN (a thin Charlie Chaplin type figure)

There may have been a link to the Empire State Building in NYC, or the White
House in Washington DC.

Thank you, in advance.

Looking for relatives of Mangus Hirschfeld, MD #general

Judi Bartek
 

Dear All
When I was young my grandmother Hirshfield used to tell us about a German
relative who did the pioneering research on sexuality. A few years ago the
Boston Film Festival had a film telling the story of Mangus HIRSCHFELD the
father of the sexual movement.

I recently became interested in tracing my family roots and convinced that
we are related to Mangus Hirschfeld but unable to find the proof.

I did however, find out that my grandparents, Herman and Hudga who emigrated
from Germany in the 1880s originally spelled their name HIRSCHFELD and the
spelling was changed to the American version HIRSCHFIELD which is the way our
family has spelled our name.

Apparently Mangus escaped Nazi Germany in the early 1930s after a brief arrest.
He immigrated to France and died late 1930s of a heart attack. All of his
manuscripts were destroyed during one of Hitler's book burnings. He was
considered the most dangerous Jew in Nazi Germany because he knew all of the
homosexual and child molesters in Hitler's inner circle.

By any chance has anyone heard of Mangus HIRSCHFELD or know of anything about
him?

Brakel- Hoexter in North Rhine Westphalia? #germany

Richard <r.d.oppenheimer@...>
 

Dear Members,
Does anyone know of a website similar to Lagis for research in Hessen, for
the town of Brakel in the district of Hoexter in North Rhine-Westphalia?
Seeking information (birth,marriage,death) for NUSSBAUM family.

Best regards, Richard D. Oppenheimer r.d.oppenheimer@gmail.com

Moderator notes:
Search the SIG archives for Hoxter to find a GerSIG post including
the following:

"In the 1930's, when he was over 70, he returned to Germany
and spent time collecting all the genealogical data he could find >from
his home region. This includes the towns of Hoxter, (o umlaut) Brakel,
Steinheim, Nieheim, and more.

He collected data >from cemeteries, town records, the Jewish communities,
and wherever else he could. He typed up and cross-referenced all the data,
and it is a wonderful source of genealogical information for that region.

The original collection, including his notes, is at the Leo Baeck Institute,
with a copy available in the town of Hoexter (and possibly elsewhere)."
