JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Where was Okenin, Austria? #general

Donna Lester <daunlester@...>
 

Has anyone ever heard of Okenin, Austria?
My late great aunt's Petition for Naturalization states that she was
born in Okenin, Austria on Sept. 1, 1899.
I cannot find that location anywhere in Eastern Europe.

Any information would be appreciated, as well as how to search for
vital records >from there.

Thank you!

Dona Lester

Good afternoon,

My name is Ron Peeters and I live in Ulvenhout (The Netherlands). When
researching the background of the Jewish side of my family in CapeTown
I found a very interesting link at the CAHJP in Jerusalem of which I
hope to find out more.

I am looking for someone to go to the CAHJP to review a file that is
in German and photograph the relevant pages.

Thanks in advance and kind regards.

"Avraham Y. Kahana"<avreimale@...> asked on Tue, 6 Aug 2019:
Besides exhausting all search options (all online major databases,
ship manifests, etc), are there any specific steps one should perform
after locating potential relatives in the Warsaw Jews Who Survived
WWII, 1948 archive?
MODERATOR NOTE: Information about this JewishGen database may be found
at
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/0203_Warsaw_survivors.html
Search the Yad Vashem Pages of Testimony (POTs) for names of those who
submitted POTs of Warsaw people. Many of these could be survivors and those
who submitted and are still alive might have first hand knowledge.

Romania SIG #Romania Re: 20 Romanian cities -Survivors #romania

Please note that in the book published in Jewish Gen about Bacau, chapter
entitled "Demographic Evolution if Jewish Population in Bacau,"
it is stated that in 1742 the ruler of Moldavia ordered the sheriff of
Bacau to assist the Jews Avram and Boroh in establishing themselves in Bacau.
So the list herein that says that Alba Iulia was the only town where Jews were
permitted to live prior to 1857 is incorrect.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Kahanofsky, Karnofsky or Kaganovich #ukraine

Barbara Saperstone <bsaperstone@...>
 

I am looking for my Grandmother's family. She says she came >from a small town outside of Kiev - a small town called Mahalkah or Malin, Kiev in the Ukraine. I believe her parents lived in Dymer (Kimmer) in the Ukraine. May also have been near the Dneiper River. The family name is Mordecai (Motel) Kahanofsky, Karnofsky or Kaganovich. Any help would be appreciated.

INTRO - researching my mostly German family #germany

Gerald Stern <gerald@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group following my attendance at the IAJGS conference
in Cleveland, OH. As requested, here is my introductory email.

I have been doing genealogy research foraround 15 years.  Having taken
most of my ancestral lines back as far as archival records go, I
consider myself to be reasonably advanced in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research. However, there are always little gaps or bits of
family history I would like to add.

I live in England between Newcastle upon Tyne and greater London. My
father came to England in March 1939 thanks to the Kindertransport - his
immediate family were all murdered in KZ. My mother was born in
Amsterdam, grew up in Geneva, but her family were all German. My wife's
family are also all German refugees escaping before WW2.

My native language is English and I also know some French and a
smattering of German.

I am fairly adept with a computer and particularly in graphics.  I am
competent at using the internet and host a website with my genealogical
database: www.sternmail.co.uk/sld

I have traced almost every ancestral line in my family back to the 1700s
and a few earlier.

I have a current goal to try and link my fifth great grandfather, Baruch
WEIL (born about 1744 place unknown - died 21/31 Jan 1846 in Altdorf
near Ettenheim (buried in the Schmieheim Cemetery) where he was the
Juedische Vohrsteher and Mohel - his father was Schmuel WEIL) to one of
the famous Weil/WEILL family descendant trees. Any help would be amazing!

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 326936.

I have entered several family names and ancestral towns in
the JGFF (JewishGen Family Finder). Some are shown below.
These are some of the very many families and towns I am researching:

[Moderator Note: The complete list is too long to include here.
It is very extensive. Write to Mr. Stern <gerald@...>
or check his website to see the entire list.]

ALTSCHUL (of Ingenheim), BARUCH (of Kroiterchine, Fracquemont/ Valkenburg),
BLUMENTHAL (of Weyer), CAHN (of Meudt, Langendernbach, Herborn, Montabaur
and other towns in the Westerwald area), COHN(of Deutsch Eylau),
FISCHER (of Bischofswerder, Deutsch Eylau), GOLDSCHMIDT (of Runkel),
GOMBERICH (of Weyer), GRUENBAUM (of Seelbach, Hahnstaetten)
HAAS (of Ingenheim), HECHT(of Holzhausen auf der Haide, Rennerod), FULD
(of Langendernbach, Brandoberndorf), HEILBERG (of Quirnbach), and
(of Meudt, Langendernbach, Herborn, Montabaur and other towns in the
Westerwald area),

2019 JewishGen conference in Cleveland (1) #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hello everybody,

The conference in Cleveland is now a history, and I want to update you
with our Bessarabia region participation.

==ShareFair (Sunday): we had our Bessarabia SIG table filled with
booklets, maps, articles and broshures. This year there was a big
intrested in our table. Many people just stopped, asked where is this
region, and some had ancestors >from their or close by areas of Ukraine
or Romania. In addition to Inna Vayner and myself we had two more
volunteers at the table: Alan Levine, Carol Shkolnik. Many thanks to
them.

==Bessarabia SIG Luncheon (Tuesday): in addition to meeting our members
(about 30 people), we had a presentation by Sheli Fain "Eliyahu Meitus
poet of Love, Desperation and Joy". It was a terrific story about a
poet and translator >from Bessarabia. We heard poetry, family stories
and more. I believe that this should be part of our genealogy research,
and I am glad that Sheli shared with us this story. Here is a recording
of Sheli's presentation:
https://www.facebook.com/100012320651242/videos/719816548439027/

==Bessarabia SIG Meeting (Tuesday): this year we decided to ask
questions to participants and listen to them. Here is a list of 7
questions. We asked to answer questions they fill comfortable with:

1. Please introduce yourself (name and place of residence)
2. Share information about your ancestors >from Bessarabia/Moldova:
surnames and towns
3. Did you subscribe to Bessarabia SIG Discussion group and are you a
member of the Facebook Bessarabia / Moldovan Jewish Roots Group
4. What sources of information did you use to advance your research?
Have you worked with Romania (Bessarabia) database, Bessarabia SIG
website, other resources?
5. What features and what information do you find the most useful and
beneficial for research when it comes to JewishGen.org and Bessarabia
SIG website and which ones don’t present benefit in your view?
6. Suggest new projects for Bessarabia SIG
7. Share your Success story

The session was also recorded at Facebook, and you can hear it at
https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=bessarabian%20%2F%20moldavian%20jewish%20roots&epa=SEARCH_BOX
and I also suggest, if you were not at the conference, please answer
these questions and send to Inna or/and to me.

Bessarabia SIG #Bessarabia Cleveland Conference 2019 #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hello everybody,

I want to thank all our members who participated at the conference in
Cleveland, ended two days ago. In short, it was a very informative,
interesting conference. I, personally learned a lot and hopefully
other members did too. I am writing now a post to Bessarabia group
about all our activities, and I also want to ask others to post their
stories, and if you have any photos >from the conference, please send
to me, and I post them at our site, at the conference pages.

All presentations of our members are going to be added to Bessarabia
SIG website.

I am looking forward to read your stories and see photos.

All the best,
Yefim Kogan
JewishGen Bessarabia SIG Leader and Coordinator.
