Re: MITTEILER info required - Reward for Assistance #romania

Vivian Kahn
 

George,

Have you checked the JewishGen Hungary database? I found lots of records for
MITTELLER/MITTEILER including births of son Ede (1881 NOT 1891) and daughters
Julesa (1876) and Eszter (1889) that identify Fani's birthplace as Nagykaroly.
(Appears that Ede/Eduard settled in Nagyvarad). Fami gave birth to Eszter in
1889, which means she was probably born about 1850.

There are quite a few records for MITTELLER/MITTEILER >from Nagykaroly. I suggest
that you thoroughly search these records and also check the original records on
LDS 642919, which may have additional information. You could also broaden your
search to look for MITTLER and similar names >from Szatmar megye.

My Great Grandmother was Fanni Mitteiler., also written as Mittheiler or
Mitheiler. This is a very uncommon name in Hungary/Romania. I recently connected

Fanni was married to Majer Berger born circa 1837 in Szamossalyi and died
March 25, 1909.

Many of the Mitteiler family were >from Tasnad, or Nagy Karoly or Tisza Korod or
Nagyvarad/Oradea or Kolozsvar or Czegeny

Ideally a birth record for Fanni Mitteiler or the marriage record for Fanni and
Majer which shows her parents names.

Thank you

Translation request: postcards in Yiddish #romania

Hello,

A fresh trove of family materials have surfaced with the death of an elder. These
two postcards >from a group of several appear to have been sent >from abroad. I
would like a full translation of everything on each card.

The first is a postcard that may have been sent >from Orgeyev, Bessarabia to Abram
Spiwak in New York City in 1910. I’m not sure what first name this person is
using for Abram - it appears to be "Sam." If you see something else there, please
comment.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM66024

The second is a handwriting I think I recognize >from a branch of the family, but I
have never before seen the pyramid or odd numeral in the stamp box. A full
translation of this Yiddish message would be a great help. If anyone can comment
on the stamp box, please do.

Holocaust documentary and Talsi book #courland #latvia

bgephart@...
 

I just finished watching a documentary forwarded to me by a cousin in Israel
about the Holocaust in Latvia. It's quite good and I'd like to recommend it
here - https://youtu.be/KBANKlgBaoE One of the people interviewed has
apparently written a book in Latvian about the Jews of Talsi. It's called
'Talsi Jews' (or 'Talsu ebreji'), by Antra Grube. Has anyone seen this
book? I have requested it through ILL >from the University of Washington -
the only available library in the U.S. just to get a look at it. I think
available for purchase via a Latvian website, but I'm not confident in the
translation of the website. Of course, it's in Latvian, so would need to be
translated for the rest of us. Just curious if anyone had heard of it or
seen it.
