Who, where and when did Hanne and Rehle GLASS marry? #germany

bettina glass <bettinaglass@...>
 

Hello,

I am researching the GLASS family >from Schrimm, Posen, Prussia, later
Berlin. Parents: David and Male GLASS (born Braunspahn) had five children
born in Schrimm. Samuel died aged 2, his twin brother Salisch is accounted
for and the youngest child Leibusch became Louis when the family moved to
Berlin. Louis married Marie LOHDE and died in Berlin in 1924, apparently
childless. Two sisters Hanne (b.Schrimm 1840) and Rehle (b.Schrimm 1843)
would appear to be my only chance of finding more about the family. At this
stage I can't find a record of David's death. He is not buried at the Jewish
cemeteries in Berlin. Hanne and Rehle were possibly married in Berlin. Hanne
GLASS and Rehle GLASS married ????? c.1860 and c.1863 ??? Does anyone know
please? (David's wife could have become Amalie in Berlin). David probably
had the name Samuel as well.

If you have one or both of these sisters on your research list, please
contact me. If you know anything about Louis and Marie (born LOHDE) GLASS,
please contact me. If you know anything about David and Male (or Amalie)
GLASS (born Braunspahn), please contact me.

Bar Kochva coins #general

Yisrael Asper
 

Regarding the Bar Kochva coins' authenticity I thought of another argument last
night and that is that no one has found them in Israel so the whole speculation
as to their inauthenticity which is based on them being forged in Israel is based
on nothing when you see it in the whole context. I wonder if those coins were not
remade in the Americas assuming the Jews actually established a separate community
for awhile. It would have made sense for them to stay as a separate community for
awhile and so keep commerce amongst themselves. The stone and coins would have been
unlikely to have been brought over to the Kentucky-Tennessee area later. How many
NonJews know of or would have brought over Bar Kochva coins and that rock.
Many Jews haven't heard of him. The speculation as to the forged arrival of the
Bar Kochva coins are done based on good theorizing if you deny their
authenticity.

Concerning the coins in the Americas quoting Cyrus Gordon, in his "Before
Columbus, links between the Old World and Ancient America" "the discovery
of a Hebrew inscription found at Bat Creek, Tennessee in 1890. The inscription...
35 AD, in conjunction with Bar Kohbu coins of 135 AD in Kentucky, strongly
supports the possibility of a Jewish settlement in the New World shortly after
the Diaspora." Dating is strong evidence.

Proof of Inheritance #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

My wife has received notice >from the German government that she in line for
some sort of money because her grandfather lived in Germany (before the
war). They asked for proof of inheritance, something indicating that she is
a sole survivor in her grandfather's line. Her uncle and his wife died in
Florida, childless. She has no siblings. Her father is dead.

On what sort of document would I find that her uncle and aunt had no children?

Best, Steve Orlen

Re: Alex Calzareth and the Aufbau project #germany

Some of you may not know that Alex was a high school student
when he undertook the Aufbau project (and devised a strategy
for finding "missing" manifests on the Ellis Island website).

My guess is that college is keeping him busy.

Further to this discussion.
About six weeks ago, one of my JFRA Israel members
(Ra'anana branch), David Schulman brought a book
called "The Lost Jews of Cornwall" to his presentation
on the early Jews of England.
I only had time to take a cursory glance, but found it
fascinating. Sorry I cannot provide the author's name.
The focus is on a lost period of Jewish involvement in
Cornwall area mining, with examples of terms used in
mining operations, all referring to Jews in some manner.
Perhaps one of our UK members might be able to provide
more information on this volume and the general contents.
A visit to the Amazon site showed that the complete title is "The lost
Jews of Cornwall: >from the Middle Ages to the nineteenth century", no
mention is made of an author, although probably there is one. ISBN:
1900178273. The book is not large, 344 pages, and Amazon points at
three used/rare-book dealers that have a copy. All are said to be in
good or very good condition, and the going price is about $100,
depending on condition. The publisher is Redcliffe, and the date of
publication is 2000.

Seeking YARCHOVER, SEGAL, STARASOLER From Zbarazh #galicia

Carole Feinberg
 

Dear Friends,

In 1957, Chana YARCHOVER/IARCHOVER/JARCHOVER submitted
two Pages of Testimony for cousin, Etyl SEGAL, nee
ZOMERFLEK, and mother, Niesia STARASOLER, nee
ZOMERFLEK, all >from Zbarazh. Nearest large
city--Tarnopol.

At that time, Chana's address was HaRoeh 103, Ramat
Gan, Israel. Thirty-six years later, Eliezer
YARCHOVER/IARCHOVER/JARCHOVER's address was
Lehi 68, Ramat Gan. The trail then ends for this
family.

If you have knowledge of Chana, Eliezer, Etyl SEGAL or
Niesia STARASOLER's family please contact me
privately. I am researching my deceased grandmother,
Chaitsche, nee SOMERFLECK's, family.

Best wishes,

Searching: Jack and Miriam POMERANTZ from Irvington, NJ #general

I would like to trace any descendants or other relatives of Jack and Miriam

I believe that Jack was born in Poland in 1912, went to the USA as a child
and died in Irvington in 1997.
Their details appear in an old address book, and they may have been related
to my husband's family.
If these names sound familiar, please contact me privately.
