ALBAHARY Buried Weissensee Cemetery in Berlin #germany

Bill Hunter <nickh2@...>
 

I am asking for a Berlin resident if they would kindly take a picture
of my great-great-grandfather's grave Mosco or Moritz ALBAHARY and his wife
Regina ALBAHARY formerly Penchas aka Penhas.

Moritz: buried on 08.08.1907, ' buried Weissensee Cemetery. with funeral
number 32138 in burial ground L 2 in row 5.

Regina: buried on 04.12.1898, Weissensee Cemetery. buried with funeral
number 18956. Buried next to Moritz.

Other direct family members may be buried with them. ALBAHARY was not a
common name in Berlin during early 1900s. The family came >from Vienna in
late 1800s, so to my knowledge only this family would have died in Berlin.

Children: Victor Josef Moritz ALBAHARY kfm, Reina Vulgo Helene (ALBAHARY)
Fischer, Eleanore (ALBAHARY) Semo, Dona (ALBAHARY Rosenbaum and Heinrich M.
ALBAHARY

Victor: He died 8 Jan 1921 in Berlin of a heart attack.
Buried Weissensee Cemetery with the funeral number 59070 in the cemetery P 5
in row 3 in 1921.
His wife Berta Buried on 10.09.1937, buried Weissensee Cemetery. with the
funeral number 96774.

I do not know the deaths of Moritz other children, if they died before the
holocaust or were victims.

Thank you very much, William Hunter Nickh2@...

a GerSIG volunteer and are viewable on JOWBR. MOD 1

Searching Chernivtsi archives for Wiznitz information #romania

rachel goldberg <rachel.goldberg100@...>
 

Dear Friends,

My grandmother Rachel HUBNER was born on 1906 in Bukovina, in the
small village Dihtineti, Romania (today Dykhtynets, Ukraine). During
the 1920's and and early 1930's, she with her mother and some of her
siblings lived in Wiznitz (today Vyzhnytsya). My family and I are
traveling to Wiznitz this summer, and was hoping to locate the family
address, so we will be able to visit their house. All the information
I currently have is an letter that was sent to them on 1929, which was
sent to "Familie Hubner, Wiznitz, Bukovina, Romania". This leads me to
believe that there were not many families with this surname in Wiznitz
at that time.

I believe that documents which could indicate the family address might
be found at archives in Chernivtsi, which we also plan to visit. so my
questions are:

(1) Which archive or archives in Chernivtsi should I focus on? How can
I find their contact details, such as their e-mail and phone number?
(I have a family member who will be able to speak with them in
Russian). I will be able to visit the archive, but I suppose it would
be better to contact them before our arrival.

(2) Is it possible to contact them and ask for specific information
(for payment, I suppose)? Would a better idea to send a local
researcher who will search this archive for us?

(3) Do you have any other suggestions on where to look for the family
house address in Wiznitz?

Best Regards,
Rachel Goldberg

Belinda,

Place's original Polish name used to be Snowicz in Zloczow district of
Tarnopol Province. Currently town name is known as Snovichi in Lviv Province.

This locality used to be a seat of the administrative division known as "gmina"
(commune) but in 1934 during large reorganization in Zloczow district it has lost
its central position by downgrading.

Town is listed in JGFF database under its Russian name Snovychi and as all other
Ukrainian based localities it will be eventually upgraded to current native
Ukrainian spelling name of Snovichi.

I came across this place (Snowicz) several years ago while researching Jewish
landowners in Eastern Galicia. Zygmunt Brenholtz name is included in 1904 listing
as landowner of Snowicz.

If one compares this person with listings in 1921 Poland Business Directory

http://data.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/1929/loadtop.htm?1700

where most probably his close relative Dr. Salomon Brenholz is listed as the
landowner (96 units morga), owner of grain mill, brewery and an alcohol distillery,
virtually main town employer.

Known demographic data for Snowicz:
Per 1900 census 1,691 residents, in agricultural portion of town: 123 people
including 32 Jews. Per 1921 census, total number of residents: 2,182, including 24
Jews, in the agricultural sector (i.e. folwark), 75 residents, including 19 Jews.

JRI_P database lists following number records associated with Snowicz:

Tarnopol: 135
Stanislawow: 2
Lwow: 7

There several records for researched by you surnames Katz and one record for
Peczenik.

Hope this help
