Usually, right after the person's name, would come his father's. That is why I
think the acronym is the father's name. The Bet and Heh could stand for Ben reb,
but the rest?
Most likely "Naftali Hirz" which is a common combination of names.

Thank you #poland

I wish to extend my thanks to the great many of
you who responded to my posting publicly and
privately and pointed me in this direction. I am
always so amazed at your generous offerings of help,
wonderful advice and wealth of knowledge.

It is through the invaluable resources of JRI-Poland,
that I have found more information in one week than
I have obtained through nine years of laborious research.
Thanks to you, I have found my g-grandfather's and now
my g-grandmother's birth records, names of towns as
well as more relatives in the indexes than I can
count!
Thank you all!
Warmest regards,
Shari Kantrow

Re: Relatives - MICHALOWICZ #lodz #poland

Dear Sherry,

I have a MICHALOWICZ in my family history >from Lodz.

MICHALOWITZ, Rojza Laja (note that this is the spelling that has been handed
down to me by ancestors now deceased).

Rojza Laja was born June 22nd 1912 & married Pinchus HAMBURSKI, a famous
rabbi of Lodz. I am a descendant of Rabbi HAMBURSKI, my mother being Rose
HAMBURSKI, & likely named after Rojza.

However, I do not know the names of the siblings or other relatives of Rojza
Laya to link Natalia MICHALOWICZ with our family. The age difference
between Natalia & Rojza is significant and it is unlikely they were
siblings.

I hope this may be of some help to you.

I would love to know if anyone has any further information on my family.

Otto 28.4.1892 and Ester WERNER(nee ADLER) 16.12.1904, were sent to Terezin

My maternal Great Grandparents were born in Lodz, Poland.

17.4 or 11.5.1877, came to Terezin 22.2.1942 and were sent to Treblinka
19.2.1942. They lived not in Prague, but in Slany near Kladno.

Their children were: Ester WERNER (nee ADLER) 16.12.1904. Anna ADLER,
13.12.1911 were sent to Terezin 24.4.1942, >from there to Treblinks

Mosek Sljama (Moritz?) 22.3.1903, came to Terezin 4.12.1941 and to Treblinka

19.10. 1942. It might be that he volunteered to go with the family, because
people who came 4.12.1941 were not sent at this time to Poland. Natalia,
Anna and Mosek Sljama lived, before deportation, in Praha XIV, Nazahonech
16.

There was also a sibling, Ida HOFFMAN (nee ADLER) 2.1 or 4.1.1909 who
married a Jindrich HOFFMAN 25.9.1905 (Valasske Mezirici) in approx. 1930.
She survived the Holocaust because they moved to Israel and were the people

to whom my Mother, Hanna WERNER, was sent.

1831 Petition for Civil Rights (Help with signatures please) #germany

Justin Levy <levyduffy@...>
 

Hello Folks,
I would greatly appreciate some help reading the Hebrew/Yiddish
signatures on the ViewMate images 6546 and 6547. The links are:

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6546

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6547

In July 1830 there had been another revolution in France; this led to the creation
of the Kingdom of Belgium. The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, a member of the German
Federation, had been forced to relinquish its larger western territory - a
European war was looming. The German parliament instructed the city-republic of
Luebeck to put 407 men on alert for a possible campaign in Belgium. The Jewish
families of Moisling were also ordered to make their 23 to 25 year-old sons
available for service. The entire community was outraged and demanded that they be
granted full civil rights. Led by their rabbi, the heads of all 77 Jewish families
signed an unusually strongly-worded petition on 5 April 1831. Part of the text
reads as follows:

'They [the Jews of Moisling and Luebeck] are not able to purchase land, they are
not allowed to conduct business anywhere in this city, their sons are wholely
excluded >from learning a useful trade. In spite of this, their sons should now
take up arms for the Fatherland, which under such circumstances they in fact
do not have. They should endanger their health and life without the prospect of a
better future. Far >from wanting to escape military service, they declare - their
sons declare - that they will gladly and willingly join the local cohorts, if they
are granted a Fatherland for which they should fight, and if they are accepted
into society.'

My ggggf, Ruben Levy, signed as no. 47. Many thanks in advance.

Thank you for all your offers of assistance and suggestions. The payment

Yesterday I said:
I need some help paying a Standesamt (Registry Office) in the Rhineland the
sum of 63 Euros for some certificates. They want the money paid directly
