Johanna NEUFELD born RHEIN - Dortmund #germany

Mike Redel <redel.mike@...>
 

Dear gersigs,

I am searching for Johanna NEUFELD born RHEIN. She was born 08.09.1908
in Dortmund. 1938 She married Paul NEUFELD born 22.10.1901 in
Froendenberg. Johanna was deported to Zamosc 30.04.1942.

I wish to know more about her parents. Who are they? There is a stone
in Dortmund Wambel. The inscription remembers to Johanna RHEIN born
Falk. Johanna Falk was born in Braunsbach 09.07.1887. She could not be
the mother because she married 1919 the widower Hermann RHEIN from
Dortmund.

Is Hermann her father - but who was his first wife?

Regards, Mike Redel, Unna - Germany redel.mike@gmail.com

INTRO- Seek family of Bertha PELTZ *12.9.1863 Neumarkt, near Breslau #germany

Felix Baier <felixbaier@...>
 

Hello everyone!
I joined the group already a couple of weeks ago and wanted to introduce
myself now. I have been doing genealogy research since December 2015,
and I consider myself a beginner in
German Jewish genealogy research. I live in Cambridge, MA. My native
language is German. I consider myself an intermediate user of computers,
and my experience with the internet is extensive.

I have identified the name and birth date of my great-great-grandmother,
Bertha PELTZ *12.9.1863 Neumarkt, near Breslau. My primary research goal
is now to identify the husband of Bertha's (half?) sister Ida.
Ida's full name is either Ida PELTZ, or (more likely) Ida SACHS, after
their mother's maiden name.

Ida's and Bertha's mother Johanne Pauline SACHS was born in
1827/1828, she was married to Bertha's father in 1861, and I suspect
that Ida was born prior to 1861 to a different father. I thus suspect
that Ida got married sometime between ~1870-1895 in Lower Silesia
(Breslau?, Liegnitz? Any comments are greatly appreciated!

Regards, Felix Baier, Cambridge/Mass. felixbaier@yahoo.de

JGSGB presents full day of exciting activities Sunday October 16 #general

Ellie Goldberg
 

On Sunday, October 16, 2016 the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater
Boston presents a full day of exciting activities. All programs take
place at Temple Emanuel, 385 Ward Street, Newton, MA. www.jgsgb.org

Beginners Workshop in Jewish Genealogy, 10:00 am - noon. $10 for
members, $15 for non-members (includes visitor fee for 1:30 pm
program). http://jgsgb.org/event/beginners-workshop-jewish-genealogy/

Carol Clingan and Debbie Lerner, who together have more than 30 years
of genealogy research experience, will present a workshop tailored for
beginners on the process of researching your family tree. They will
describe in detail the sources and records that are most helpful to
beginners and present a case study demonstrating a successful search.
Their core message is that you CAN research your family tree. You will
be off to a great start after you attend this workshop.

The Genealogical Value of Jewish Burial Records, Speaker: Nolan Altman,
1:30 pm. Free for members, $5 for non-members.
http://jgsgb.org/event/nolan-altman-genealogical-value-jewish-burial-record=s/

Jewish headstone inscriptions and burial records can provide crucial
information to family historians. Hebrew name inscriptions that are
based on patronymics can link together two generations of Hebrew names
unlike any other source document. This can be especially helpful when
trying to connect first generation American ancestors with their
European families. Using photographs and case studies, Nolan Altman
will explain the symbols and details found on headstones and describe
how this information can provide important data and context for your
family research. He will also direct you to the major websites that
can help you locate the burial sites of your ancestors.

Nolan Altman coordinates the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial
Registry (JOWBR) and is Vice President for Data Acquisition at
JewishGen. He was bitten by the "genealogy bug" in 1996 when he wrote
his family history in memory of his mother. After volunteering on
several projects, he became the Coordinator for JewishGen's Holocaust
Database and for JOWBR. He makes regular presentations at international
conferences and has written articles for Avotaynu, Dorot and other genealogy
publications. He is a former President of the Jewish Genealogical Society of
Long Island.

Advice for Short Research Trip #poland

Robin Levine <robinllevine@...>
 

Good day,

I am currently applying for a modest Travel Grant through my graduate
school to spend 12 or 13 days in Poland to perform research, create
art, document ancestral sites, etc. However, some of the days would
fall on Christmas and New Years when most things are closed and
weather conditions could slow me down too. I am trying to figure out
how to maximize my time and money for an itinerary and budget list for
the grant proposal

The family I can trace are >from Chelm, Lublin - Blajer, Fridman,
Groman, Scheider or Scheiderman. I am looking for genealogy
information before 1912 and after 1912. The digital archives are
missing information >from 1912- late 1920-early 1930s (?) These are the
years when my grandmother and great uncles were born.

It seems as if I don't need to go to the National Archives in Warsaw.
I've read that all of the information for Chelm and Lublin
town #35 is at the Archiwum Panstwowe w Lublinie or the State Archives
in Lublin. Or will I have time to go back and forth between archives?
Also, how expensive and difficult is it to find a translator?
Especially since the newer items can't be photocopied.

While there I would like to have a tour of the Jewish section of
Lublin (Castle, Grodzka Gate, Square at Szeroka Street), visit the
Chelm Cemetery, and locate any addresses. I was originally planning to
arrive in Warsaw go to the archives (which may not be necessary), see
a museum, and try to make contacts with Polish artists (cafes). My
college emphases collaborative art with international artists. Then,
take a 522 bus and TLK MP to Chelm and then to Lublin. Maybe go to
Majdanek Camp just before leaving, so I am not upset the entire trip.
Is getting around difficult by bus and TLK MP? Recommendations for cafes.

Are there other things I should see in the area that are not far away,
or cost a lot of money? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank
you kindly.

Recent request regarding village of Vnikov #general

John Berkeley <gluckpast@...>
 

I now realise that, in my attempt to be as brief as possible, I failed
completely to identify the region to which I was referring.

Given where the individual's parents were >from and where they were
most likely to be living at the time, the birthplace will almost
certainly have been close to Huszt (Khust). As well as the handwritten
form, I have a typewritten version of the travel application document
to which I referred and so there is no doubt about the spelling of Vnikov.

My apologies to those who may already have responded.

Yisrael of Ostrov-Listed in Mazkeret Ligdolei Ostraha #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

According to family sources and trees my ancestor, Yisrael of Ostrog
came to Tzfat during the early decades of the 19th cent., he is buried
in Tveria. He was a descendant of the Mahara"l through R' Naftali KATZ
(the"Smichat Chachamim" and Rabbis of Kremenetz). We have no confirmed
family name for him but he was descendant of the KLAUSNER
family (not son after son). He was also a descendant of the Maharsha"l.

There are two listings for a Yisrael ben Yosef of Ostraha in
"Mazkeret Ligdolei Ostraha" with a note of the author that he believes
that they are one and the same. The above Sefer gives no family name
fore this/these persons.

My mother's cousin, R' Yacov Meir SCHECHTER (one of the leaders of
Breslev chassidut in Israel) believes that our ancestor's family name
was ROSENBAUM though his children changed the name to SCHECHTER
according to their trade.

If anyone knows who the above Yisrael of Ostraha's family name was and
have any idea if either of the listings in "Mazkeret L'gdolei Osraha"
are the same as my ancestor and what their/his family name was I would
be happy to hear.
