Family EMANUEL in New York #germany

Steven Emanuel <steven.emanuel@...>
 

Dear All

With the enormous amount of assistance given by readers of this list I was
able to trace much of the lives of three great uncles who emigrated to New
York >from Obrigheim in Germany. However I have had little success in finding
their descendants. The brief details of each family are:

Simon EMANUEL. Arrived firstly in 1884 (San Francisco) , later returned
home, studied, married Eugenia and went to New York in 1905. There were two
children:
1. Paul (aka Edward P),born 1906, a lawyer & Immigration Judge who married
Dorothy Silverman in later life. He died in 1997. Was there an earlier
marriage and children?
2. Helen born 1919 no definitive further trace found.

Adolf EMANUEL. Arrived New York in 1940 with wife Johanna. Adolf seems to
have died within a few months and Johanna in 1978. They had one son:
Erich, born 1903 and arrived in New York in 1938 with wife Trude. He died
1964 and she in 2001. The name was changed to EDEN. Their son:
Hans (aka John), born 1933, became an Opthalmologist. I understand that his
partner was male but there may have been adopted children.

Eugen EMANUEL. Arrived in New York in 1935, with wife Flora and their two
children following in 1936. I have not traced either of them further. The
two sons are:
1. Werner (aka Donald), born 1921, also no further trace.
2. Cola (aka Nick C) born 1924. He died in WW2 in "The Rheims Accident" of
1945. So possibly no wife or children.

Does anyone know of these families? If so I would be delighted to hear >from
them!

Hi,

Zablotow is currently known as Zabolotiv, Western Ukraine at
4828 2517. This Jewish community was located within Sniatyn
district in Stanislawow Province.

"Brezovica" - most probably Berezhnitsa (ex Bereznica) located
at 4817 2522, some 15 miles distance >from Zabolotiv.

Resource Center at The 31st IAJGS International Conference #general

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

Don't Pass Up the Resource Center at The Conference!

This year’s Resource Center is a real benefit to researchers, and definitely
should not be overlooked. It's a valuable place to spend time studying maps
for ancestral towns, reviewing computerized surname indexes, and searching
through a wide variety of databases to fill in gaps in your research. It's a
"problem worth having" because it's virtually guaranteed to compete with your
equally strong desire to attend Conference sessions, network, see Judaic
films, visit vendors, etc. (You also will be able to avoid going outside
into the August heat of Washington by conducting your research in the comfort
of the Grand Hyatt, and still be close to other Conference features you want
to catch!)

The Resource Center also will be a lively, "happening" place to be because
virtually EVERY Conference attendee will visit the Resource Center! How can
you pass that up? (And when you do come by, we suggest you bring a listing
of your "research goals," the specific surnames, towns, or dates you’re
researching so that you can spend your time more wisely.)

Where’s what this year's Resource Center consists of:
- Carefully selected reference materials, specialized archival
materials, and maps (laminated and available on long tables) >from the
hosting organization, the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington
(JGSGW)’s extensive library collection;
- 5 PC computers dedicated to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
(USHMM) Central Names Index (CNI). That index will help inform attendees'
Holocaust-era research and be a major aid when conducting research at the
Museum itself; and
- 35 additional PCs loaded with links to websites usually
accessible only through subscription or membership.
- Translation Services located in an adjacent room, with a free
20-minute appointment for conference attendees who sign up at the
Conference, its schedule to be posted.

The Resource Center will be open during these days and hours:
Sunday, August 14, >from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Monday, August 15, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday, August 16, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Thursday, August 18, >from 7:30 a.m.– 5:30 p.m.
Friday, August 19, >from 7:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.

We'll have a large number of links available to both free and subscription
(free at the Conference) genealogy-related websites. These will be on the
Resource Center's 35 computers, and be available for all SIX DAYS of

versatile research tools. Please come by the Resource Center: you'll thank
yourself!

Books and archival materials can be checked out for use by turning in a
government-issued picture ID to be left with Resource Center staff. This
ensures that materials are returned. No one will be permitted to leave the
room with library materials.

But you do have to be a Conference registrant to use the maps, books,
archival materials, and computerized databases there. With that in mind,
Conference registration rates are very flexible and include full week or
single day registration, as well as discount rates for spouses/companions,
college and high school students. You also can arrange for Grand Hyatt
Washington hotel lodging through the Conference website.

ViewMate translation request - German, Image #19439 (Hanne ADLER, ship manifest) #hungary

Karen Hirsch
 

I've posted a vital record (ship manifest >from the ship Deutschland,
departing Hamburg, 25 August 1900) in German for which I need a few
loose translations.

My g-grandmother, Hanne ADLER (>from Kisvarda, Hungary), immigrated to
the US on this ship. She is the second to last entry in the image. I
would like a loose translation of the headers for columns 8 and 9, as
well as the entries in those columns for Hanne ADLER. The entry in
column 9 seems to be a "ditto" to the entry above, but I cannot
read/translate it. You will likely need to open the scan in a separate
window in order to see it at a large enough size.

The image is on ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=3D19439

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much for any help you can give!

Resource Center at The 31st IAJGS International Conference #lithuania

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

Don't Pass Up the Resource Center at The Conference!

This year’s Resource Center is a real benefit to researchers, and definitely
should not be overlooked. It's a valuable place to spend time studying maps
for ancestral towns, reviewing computerized surname indexes, and searching
through a wide variety of databases to fill in gaps in your research. It's a
"problem worth having" because it's virtually guaranteed to compete with
your equally strong desire to attend Conference sessions, network, see
Judaic films, visit vendors, etc. (You also will be able to avoid going
outside into the August heat of Washington by conducting your research in
the comfort of the Grand Hyatt, and still be close to other Conference
features you want to catch!)

The Resource Center also will be a lively, "happening" place to be because
virtually EVERY Conference attendee will visit the Resource Center! How can
you pass that up? (And when you do come by, we suggest you bring a listing
of your "research goals," the specific surnames, towns, or dates you’re
researching so that you can spend your time more wisely.)

Where’s what this year's Resource Center consists of:
- Carefully selected reference materials, specialized archival
materials, and maps (laminated and available on long tables) >from the
hosting organization, the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington
(JGSGW)’s extensive library collection;
- 5 PC computers dedicated to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
(USHMM) Central Names Index (CNI). That index will help inform attendees'
Holocaust-era research and be a major aid when conducting research at the
Museum itself; and
- 35 additional PCs loaded with links to websites usually
accessible only through subscription or membership.
- Translation Services located in an adjacent room, with a free

versatile research tools. Please come by the Resource Center: you'll thank
yourself!

Books and archival materials can be checked out for use by turning in a
government-issued picture ID to be left with Resource Center staff. This
ensures that materials are returned. No one will be permitted to leave the
room with library materials.

But you do have to be a Conference registrant to use the maps, books,
archival materials, and computerized databases there. With that in mind,
Conference registration rates are very flexible and include full week or
single day registration, as well as discount rates for spouses/companions,
college and high school students. You also can arrange for Grand Hyatt

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Resource Center at The 31st IAJGS International Conference #lithuania

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

Don't Pass Up the Resource Center at The Conference!

This year’s Resource Center is a real benefit to researchers, and definitely
should not be overlooked. It's a valuable place to spend time studying maps
for ancestral towns, reviewing computerized surname indexes, and searching
through a wide variety of databases to fill in gaps in your research. It's a
"problem worth having" because it's virtually guaranteed to compete with
your equally strong desire to attend Conference sessions, network, see
Judaic films, visit vendors, etc. (You also will be able to avoid going
outside into the August heat of Washington by conducting your research in
the comfort of the Grand Hyatt, and still be close to other Conference
features you want to catch!)

The Resource Center also will be a lively, "happening" place to be because
virtually EVERY Conference attendee will visit the Resource Center! How can
you pass that up? (And when you do come by, we suggest you bring a listing
of your "research goals," the specific surnames, towns, or dates you’re
researching so that you can spend your time more wisely.)

Where’s what this year's Resource Center consists of:
- Carefully selected reference materials, specialized archival
materials, and maps (laminated and available on long tables) >from the
hosting organization, the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington
(JGSGW)’s extensive library collection;
- 5 PC computers dedicated to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
(USHMM) Central Names Index (CNI). That index will help inform attendees'
Holocaust-era research and be a major aid when conducting research at the
Museum itself; and
- 35 additional PCs loaded with links to websites usually
accessible only through subscription or membership.
- Translation Services located in an adjacent room, with a free
20-minute appointment for conference attendees who sign up at the
Conference, its schedule to be posted.

The Resource Center will be open during these days and hours:
Sunday, August 14, >from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Monday, August 15, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday, August 16, >from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Wednesday, August 17, >from 7:30 a.m.- 9 p.m.
Thursday, August 18, >from 7:30 a.m.– 5:30 p.m.
Friday, August 19, >from 7:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.

We'll have a large number of links available to both free and subscription
(free at the Conference) genealogy-related websites. These will be on the
Resource Center's 35 computers, and be available for all SIX DAYS of
the Conference.

Hi,

Zablotow is currently known as Zabolotiv, Western Ukraine at 4828 2517. This
Jewish community was located within Sniatyn district in Stanislawow
Province.

"Brezovica" - most probably Berezhnitsa (ex Bereznica) located at 4817 2522,
some 15 miles distance >from Zabolotiv.

Hi,
So in May I went to visit Vienna and had the opportunity to visit the Jewish
Archives. While there I found out about two additional towns that I am
curious about.

1. Brezovica (spelling?) - Apparently my maternal grandfather's paternal
grandfather Michael Rothstein was >from that town however I can't seem to
find anything about it on any database. The only instance I have found is
on Wikipedia it lists it as a town in Kosovo.
So out of curiosity is anyone looking for Rothstein's >from that town as
well as Tarnopol. Is there some connection between the two towns?
Does it have a different name now?

2. Zablotow (spelling?) - This one might be a little easier mostly I was
just wondering if anyone was reasearching Tillinger's >from this area that
would have moved to Stanislawow/Ivano-Frankivsk. JGFF doesn't have anyone
listed for this name/town combination so I figured I'd ask. Apparently my
2nd great grandfather Aron Moshe Tillinger was >from this town and not from
Stanislawow where his children were born.
Aron supposedly had either 15 brothers or 15 uncles and the JRI-Poland
database doesn't give me much to go on.

Thanks in advance, and please feel free to respond privately.

Hi,

it seems to me that best matches for your town-names are:

1. Velika Berezovica (Polish: Berezowica Wielka), a very small town one
mile south of Ternopil (Polish: Tarnopol), almost its suburb

2. Zabolotiv (Polish: Zablotow), JG Locality Page ->
