Re: Need contact in Riga, Latvia #jewishgen

Contact Aleksandrs Feigmanis in Riga. He knows Russian, Latvian, Hebrew,
English and does genealogical research. He will probably charge a
fee.

His email addresses are: aleksgen@... and aleksgen@...

From: Dinberg Donna <donna.dinberg@...>

I have received >from a kind person the 2001 Riga phone number for a
female cousin who submitted a page of testimony several decades ago
for mutual relatives. My Riga cousin would be my 3d cousin one time
removed, and would perhaps be in her 70s.
...snip...
Would someone ... perhaps in Riga ... be able to
assist me in making an initial contact with this cousin, if she is
still living? Once the contact and trust is established, we can figure
out a way to continue correspondence.

Genealogy blank form in Hebrew, and in French #jewishgen

MBernet@...
 

I am looking for a blank form, in Hebrew, and one in French,
that I can send to family overseas when I ask them to send me
information on individuals and families.

Such forms are readily available in English, to be downloaded
or photocopied

Can anyone help me find such forms in Hebrew, and (separately,
of course) in French.

Many thanks:

PIASETSKY and GARBATY #jewishgen

Paul Silverstone
 

I have just learned that my grandfather's sister who lived in
Shanghai had a granddaughter, and her name.
In 1947, Helen GARBATY, nee PIASETSKY, arrived in San
Francisco >from China on the s.s. Marine Adder >from China.
With her were her daughter Evelyn (born 1940) and her husband Heinz
Henry Garbaty, born 1902 in Berlin.Helen was the daughter of Esther
Piasetsky, nee CHRZAN, >from Makow Mazowiecki in Poland.
They were headed for Montevideo, Uruguay, but it is possible
they later went to Israel.
I would like to make contact with Evelyn Garbaty who would
be my second cousin.

Re: The Pinkeltrager of Gut Miskowitz - Tabor Kreis #austria-czech

Vitdoc@...
 

In 2001 a book was published by "vybral a sestavil Vladimir Hrbek."
What ever that all means and the book is called Dejiny Myslkovic a okoli.
Myslkovic--the town you are speaking about is near Tabor and my
cousin Hanus Justic >from this town brought this book back with him >from
a trip there. It is a very well done book with pictures but I can't
read CZ to assit with this. On the first few pages is PREDMLUVA written
and signed by Karel Podrasky starosta. Anyone in the LA area that wants
to take a look and can translate? Please let me know.
Maybe we can learn about these Pinkel Tragers.
Thanks Susan Boyer LA CA

Peter, when I began searching for documentation on the Auerbachs >from Becov nad
Teplou, the archives in Prague informed me that prewar documentation for that
town had been lost.

What a great surprise to find on my visit to Becov that the Town Hall had a
Register of Births and Deaths and were willing to let me search through it on
site without an appointment.

I was able to retrieve information on all Auerbachs residing in that town all
the way back to the early 1800s. Birth, death, father, mother, siblings, house
number they lived in, metier of the father, cause of death, attendants at
birth.

I would have learned a lot more but became frustrated with trying to decipher
handwritten German script.

The point is that even though there may not be records available in some
central archive, mistakes do happen and there may be some records available in
the town/village in which you're interested and a physical visit may unearth
them.
