Beth Hamedrash Hagodol in NYC #general

Melissa Anderson
 

Does anyone know if there are any records available >from Beth Hamedrash Hagodol in
New York City? I realize there was a devastating fire in 2017 but had heard the
torahs and some records had been saved.

My husband’s great-great-grandparents, Ida (Reibstein) and Jacob Cummings lived 2
blocks >from Beth Hamedrash Hagodol in the lower eastside of NYC in the 1890’s and
early 1900’s. I believe they immigrated separately >from Lithuania in the 1880’s and
coincidentally Rabbi Jacob Joseph arrived >from Lithuania in 1888 to lead that
congregation. My husband’s great-grandfather was their oldest child born in 1889.

I’m trying to track down marriage records but haven’t been successful through
JewishGen, Steve Morse or Ancestry. I thought maybe the synagogue might have some
pertinent records.

Thanks for any hints you might have!

Trying to find town #hungary

Larry Briggs
 

We have a friend whose Great Grandfather left then-Hungary to come to =
the US. The town he came >from looks like Tolobolfola.=20

I could not find it online currently nor could I find it through the =
Town Finder on Jewishgen. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Larry Briggs

Moderator: We might be able to provide assistance if you provided the name of the
great-grandfather. This appears to be a misspelling of the name of a place that might
start with Tol... and conclude end with suffix "falva" or "falu".

Family History research in Sosnowiec #poland

Derek Stavrou
 

Shalom to the Discussion Group

I am planning a trip to Sosnowiec to trace the story of my wife's
family there prior to the Shoah (main names are TUCHSCHNEIDER,
BRONSTEIN and PENDRAK). Because I don't speak or read Polish or
Russian, I would like to ask the group's guidance in planning this
trip. For example, can I rely on the staff of the Sosnowiec and
Katowice USCs being able to help me in English? What preparatory work
should I do? I would really appreciate advice >from anyone who has had
recent experience in this area.

With thanks for any guidance you can give and best wishes for a
Sweet New Year

Question about Passaic County, NJ birth certificates from 1927 #general

David W. Perle
 

Shana Tova, all!

I have an interesting-looking "Certificate and Record of Birth" >from my grandma
in Paterson, NJ (Passaic County) in 1927. What's interesting is that it looks more
like a diploma than any other birth certificate that I've seen, such as her
father's in the same city 22 years prior.

I suspect that this might not be the proper "long form" birth certificate, so I
thought someone might be able to confirm whether this is the only birth certificate
or if it would be reasonable for me to pay to order the 'real' one >from the state?

This certificate has her name, hospital name where she was born, the
date, professional attendant's name, both parents' names, and the name
and signature of the deputy registrar.

Using her father's "Certificate and Record of Birth" >from 22 years earlier, which
looks much more like all other birth certificates I've seen, elements that it has
which my grandma's diploma-looking document does not have include her parents'
*ages*, her parents' birth places, her parents' occupations, how many other
children there were in the family, her sex, or her race.

So--am I right to suspect that this 'birth diploma' isn't really her full official
birth certificate and I should probably go ahead and order a formal copy?

Righteous Among The Nations - Burden of proof #general

Robert Fraser
 

Dear Friends-

There are at least two known cases of rescue by RATN in my family that I know of -
both in Vienna. What I'm seeking is information >from readers who have successfully
(or not) made application to the Yad VaShem for recognition as RATN.

I have read the pages of information on their website and the stories featured
therein. I have several times started to prepare an application. But the trouble is
that I don't know very much. The participants have passed away, and the information
I have is second and even third-hand, although I have no reason to doubt it.

I'd be glad to hear >from people - privately - of their experiences, especially if
they had limited information to start with. How much did you know, how much did you
include in your application to the Yad VaShem, and was your application successful?
Did you make application on behalf of a rescuer no longer living?

Best wishes -

Karl Heinz WALLACH from Treysa #germany

Richard <r.d.oppenheimer@...>
 

Hello GerSig Members,

I am seeking specific information anyone may have regarding Karl Heinz
WALLACH, born 15 August 1909 in Treysa, Kirchhain, Hesse. He emigrated to
Palestine in 1938.
He was the son of Moritz WALLACH. Moritz WALLACH and his brother Carl
WALLACH owned a variety store in Treysa, named WALLACH Gebruder. (WALLACH
Brothers)
My first cousin, Marga MANNHEIMER worked in this store. Marga had a child
Lane, born Sept 28, 1938. The child was born in a Home for Wayward Jewish
Girls in Neu-Isenberg near Frankfurt. I recently discovered some oral
history that Marga may have been raped while in the employ of this store.
Marga and her daughter were killed in 1940 in Riga. The father of Lane
remains a mystery I am attempting to solve. Any clues are welcomed.

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

ViewMate file # 69429 - Please translate from German to English #germany

Lin Herz <lin2@...>
 

Dear GerSIG Friends,
L'Shana Tova. Wishing each of you a sweet year, filled with good
times, good health, interesting journeys into family history, and
marvelous successes in your quest.

I would like a complete translation of this document
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM69429
which the town of Noerdlingen sent it to me. They said it was Abraham
BUEHLER's (my great grandfather) trade registration. I wonder if it has
anything to do with his apprenticeship as a leather dealer.

He was born in Kleinderdlingen and at some point moved to Noerdlingen.
His parents were Jakob BUEHLER and Jette ROSENBERGER BUEHLER. He was
born in 1859. I'd be happy to give you more information to help you
translate it. My email is lin2@cfl.rr.com

This may be one of the documents I have searched for, for many years.

Thank you so very much for your time, consideration and friendship.

Sincerely, Lin Herz Palm Bay, Florida

Two of the surnames I'm researching:

BUEHLER -Noerdlingen/Kleinerdlingen/Donau-Ries, Bavaria, Germany;
Schopfloch, Germany
(our Buehlers may have originated as Schweizers )
ROSENBERGER- Oberdorf-Bopfingen, Ostalbkreis, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany

[Send me an Email to request the whole long list.]
