Searching for towns in Yiddish per ancestors' pronunciation #general

redberliner@...
 

I just realized that when we are searching for towns, we may be searching for
the name in Yiddish as pronounced by our ancestors.

Perhaps there is a way to translate the Yiddish name into Polish or Russian
and then be able to find it. I don't know if Jewishgen.org has such a link or
not. It seems it would be helpful to our researchers.

My thoughts.

Re: Looking for relatives of Mangus Hirschfeld, MD #general

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?
The name is "Magnus HIRSCHFELD", not "Mangus".

Don't miss out on the German version, which gives more family info:

Read section: "Spates Privatleben und Erbnachlass" in

You could use this translator, superior to Google, to read portions in English

Seraching REDLICH from Hannover / Germany around 1700 - 1720 #germany

Friedhelm Redlich <redlich@...>
 

Dear List members,

I am new and writing you >from Germany.
I have done family research for some years and have a family tree with
nearly 2.000 persons on MyHeritage.

On my father's paternal tree I have:

Christian Gottlieb REDLICH, born 1719 He became a baker in Bremen.
My grandfather in the 4th degree.
He got the "civil rights" in the German town of Bremen on October
3rd 1749 and claimed to come >from Hannover / Germany (town or duchy?)
and to be a "proselyte".
(In general the word "proselyte" explains a Jew who has changed to
a Christian religion)
This fact is proven by original documents in the archives of Bremen.

By a DNA test I have even more indications that I have Jewish ancestors.

Until now I could not find further connections to any Jewish family
named REDLICH or / and coming >from the Hannover area.
I have no experience how to do research in Jewish genealogy.

Any hints / support and help is very much appreciated.

Thanks a lot. Best regards / Mit freundlichen Grussen

Friedhelm Redlich, 48165 Muenster - Germany redlich@muenster.de

Heinrich WALLACH from Mecklenburg #germany

ronald Wallace
 

Does anyone have any information about a Heinrich WALLACH who was born in
1857 in Bad Sulze, Mecklenburg. He was adopted by his Maternal Uncle's
family when he was three years old on the death of his Mother. His adopted
family was HEYMANSON and they lived in Luebeck. However he retained his
original last name of WALLACH.

He arrived in the USA on August 16th 1891

I have not been able to find any record of him in the USA after his arrival.

If anyone can shed any light on this person, I would be most grateful.

Re: Revotsk and Kovorsk, Ukraine #ukraine

A search in the JewishGen Communities Database turns up Kavarskas in
Kovno Guberniya in the Russian Empire (today in Lithuania). The
nearest to Revotsk is Riebi'i (Ribenishki in Russian), about 100 miles
north-east of Kavarskas, in Vitebsk Guberniya (today in Poland). How
sure are you that the towns you're looking for were in Ukraine?

http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen/testimonials/

** Marla Raucher Osborn highlights the crucial role that secondary
sources such as testimonies, memoirs, and survivor and witness
accounts can play in emotionally connecting us to our ancestors. She
gives us a tour of her ancestral town of Rohatyn, showing various
buildings once inhabited by her family.

** Andrew Lenard survives the Holocaust and, years later, searches for
R=C3=B3zsi, his musical partner during his teen years, who had been
transported to Auschwitz >from their town in Hungary. We repost this
moving story >from our Archives.

** Carol Clingan agrees to help a friend identify her

surname, but she also connects her friend with previously unknown
