Another possibility is that the first Hani died in infancy, the second Hani
being your GG Grandmother.

How are there two sisters given the same names?
1 st Hani, my GG Grandmother b. May 6, 1866, d. August 3, 1905 I have
her official death record
2 nd Hani b. Mar. 16, 1869, M. Nov. 5 1898
I have her marriage record.
I think you have to consider that there was only one Hani, and whether
one of their birth records was mistranscribed. When making a decision
between a badly-written 'March' and 'May' guesswork could be involved,
and I note that you don't have two parallel certificates for any of the
two Hanis' life events.

Ricardo IMMERWAHR -- Berlin and Rio de Janeiro #latinamerica

Stephen Falk <sfalkjd@...>
 

I am looking for information on my mother's second cousin Richard
Hermann Otto IMMERWAHR who was born in Berlin on 14 October 1904. It
appears that he emigrated in about 1937 and settled in Rio de Janeiro.
In Brazil, he was known as Richardo German Otto IMMERWAHR. >from a
later passenger list, it is clear that Richard / Ricardo was still
alive in 1957.

I have found a few references online >from Brazilian published records.

I do not know if he was still affiliated with the Jewish community
when he lived in Brazil.

I have not been able to determine whether Richard / Ricardo was ever
married or had children; I guess he did not, but I do not know. And I
have not been able to learn when he died.

All the best,

Progress on Bessarabia Cemetery projects, October, 2018 #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear Bessarabers,

I am glad that at this year conference we invited our researcher and
photographer Serghei Daniliuk. Many people met him and heard him talking
about cemetery projects, and a town, used to be a Jewish shteitle Serghei
lives now.

It might be now we will slow the projects, because Sergei is now studying in
the University, but still he will work on a number of our projects this
year.

Here is a progress as of now:

- Nisporeni Jewish Cemetery - photographing is done, and now the
translation/transcribing is in progress. Hopefully we will finish it by the
end of the year.

- Bricheni Jewish Cemetery. We are doing a Phase 2 - Clearing paths, and
cleaning with photographing. Half of the job was done. We have received
about 750 photos of graves, did not have before. There is going to be a
second trip to Brichany to finish this work, and after that we will do the
translation.

- Vadul Rashkov, Phase 1 was completed and 862 burial records are available,
plus 454 Unknown graves at our website. Phase 2 photographing is done, and
now it is in process of "second" reading, and October-November it will be
ready and submitted to JOWBR

- Kishinev Jewish Cemetery. So far one sector of the cemetery was
completed, and is available at JOWBR. I got a promise >from another person,
who did part of cemetery to finish 3 more sectors this year... I will let
you know when the images will arrive

- Beltsy Jewish Cemetery. Also another group is photographing the cemetery
by sectors, and hopefully by the end of the year they will give us another
1,000-1,500 images.

- Reni Jewish Cemetery. I hope that Serghei D. will have a day to go to
that cemetery and photograph all. The cemetery is not very big.

- I also got a list of Jews >from Bessarabia who were buried in Brazil
(cemiterio israelita de Vila Mariana). The list has about 300-400 names and
Jews were >from Ataki, Brichevo, Brichany, Beltsy, Soroki, Teleneshty,
Yedinets, Sekuryany, etc. Unfortunately there are no dates in the list...
only names and towns they were from. I will work with JOWBR and see what we
can do here.

This is all for now.

Please let me know if you have any questions, issues.

Thanks again,

Ethnicity analysis discrepancy #dna

Arlene Beare
 

I would appreciate your opinion. I manage 9 accounts on FTDNA and uploaded
the raw data to MyHeritage. One of the uploads revealed a completely
different Ethnicity >from FTDNA. They assured me they use different SNP's and
this could account for the difference. However all the other results are
nearly the same as FTDNA. I deleted the upload and reuploaded and the
result was the same.

Please explain the difference in this result.

FTDNA ---Ethnicity was Jewish Diaspora 92% No Sephardi. Eastern Europe <2%
European 4% Scandinavian < 1% Middle Eastern 5%

My Heritage---Ashkenazi 76.6% Sephardi 3.8% Italian 19.6%

Dear Colleagues,

Recently discovered that my great grandmothers maiden name was Furst (umlaut on â?˜uâ??). Are there any Fursts researching this family surname? I believe the general vicinity would be Austro-Hungarian empire or Moravia. Thank you very much.

English speaking Guide(s) sought to follow the foot-steps of Friedrich LICHTENSTEIN in Germany Jul-Aug 2019 #germany

Dave Lichtenstein
 

Ladies and Gentlemen

I recently posted some German documentation on my late Grandfather Friedrich
LICHTENSTEIN for translation/interpretation on View Mate 69832-69834.
Readers have kindly done this for me and as a result I have a reasonable
idea of where he lived and worked in Germany including various locations in
BERLIN.

Accordingly I intend to visit Germany in late July- early August 2019 and
base myself in some of these locations:

Base myself in **Duisburg** (Rhineland (Rheinland) Province) to explore
nearby **Hamborn ** (Rhineland (Rheinland) Province)

Base myself in Berlin to explore various haunts.

Travel to **Cottbus** (Brandenburg Province) to find the site of the old
synagogue destroyed by the Nazis.

Base myself in **Erfurt** (Province of Saxony (Sachsen) Province) to either
locate or find the site of the synagogue in the early part of 20th century
where my Grandfather participated as Cantor as well as locate where he
lived. (I have his **Erfurt** address in another document.) Also to
explore the nearby towns of **Weimar** (Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach Province)
where he took singing lessons and ** Sonderhausen ** (not listed in GERSIG)
where he sang at the Hoftheater.

Any assistance with a guide or guides would be appreciated. In this regard
in 2009 I took a similar trip to Berlin. One of the subscribers to Gersig
one Robert Winter firstly translated some of my Grandfather's German
documents that I had posted on View Mate. Not only that, he kindly agreed
to guide me around Berlin when I arrived there. In recent weeks I have
tried to re-establish contact with Robert to no avail. If any one else
knows Robert and can assist me with re-establishing contact with Robert, I
would really be grateful. Many thanks in advance
