Possibly Leipzig - Do you recognize? #rabbinic

Yaacov Slizak <yslizak@...>
 

Dear Friends,

I am posting the following query on behalf of a relative of mine. For
many years he has been trying to identify the rabbi pictured in this
photo:

There is very little information about him, most of it from
recollections of my friends' late father, so this is to be taken with
a grain of salt:

War Bride #general

Ian Jackson <ianj@...>
 

How can I find a record of a marriage between a British Woman and an
American Air Force or Army Captain during the second world war. I believe
they may have got married in Germany. I was told she was one of the earliest
to marry an American during this period.

Translating letter from Warsaw Archive #general

Sue Clamp <clamp@...>
 

After many months of waiting (One letter and three emails) I have
finally had a response >from the Warsaw archive. There are details of how
to pay, but as my Polish is non-existent, I'm not sure whether the price
quoted (10 PLN or 3.56 Euros) is per record or for all. It also looks
like a couple of the records I requested could not be found as they are
mentioned in a different part of the letter - but I am only guessing.

Does Jewishgen have a list of key words that would be found on these
letters? (I looked at the infofiles section but nothing jumped out at me)
Or does anyone know of a reasonably accurate translation service, for
instance, does Google Translate work OK (accented letters are a bit of a
nuisance)?

Or would it be simpler if I uploaded the scan of the letter to my own
web site and asked someone who knows Polish to take a look at it?

Many thanks

L. A. EBERG (b. 1891) - a Russian actor. The year of death needed. #general

Mark Rybak
 

For the Jewish museum I am looking for the year of death of Lev
Aleksandrovitch EBERG. He was a Russian theater actor. As far as I know he
was born in 1891 (don't know the exact place). Some time he was working in
Estonia. I heared that he emigrated to the USA (may be through some other
country) before the WWII and died there.
I need the year of his death. The name may be also spelled as Leo. Thanks
for any info.

Advice about Frankfurt/Oder and Berlin Research_AUFRECHT & SEIDENBERG #germany

Fred Half <opticsmeister@...>
 

I had sent this to Jeanette but since there has been so much
additional traffic regarding the AUFRECHT family I am placing it here
also. My sources for Anna's birth and marriage have not been verified
(they are written in the family Stammbaum) but if anyone has any
further information, I would certainly be interested. I have been
researching the S(E)IDENBERG family in the US since their arrival in
New York around 1850. My grandmother was a SIDENBERG (the E seems to
have been dropped in the US). They seemed to have been in the towns
near Breslau (Wroclaw) with some migration to Berlin. My gggrandfather
Julius Israel SEIDENBERG was in Berlin in the 1880-1889 time period as
I have letters written to his children in the US. Also there were
descendants (BIBERSTEIN and NEISSER) still in Germany in the late
1930s as my grandparents helped some of their cousins get to Palestine.

Re: Information on those who came after the war. #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

There was a time, into the early 1950s, when manifests were created for
incoming flights and were processed by immigration just the way the ship
manifests were. They were, of course, much shorter.

They are in the same record group as the vessel manifests, sometime on the
same roll of film. Unfortunately, the INS name index ends around 1948, but
the microfilms of the actual manifests continue into the 1950s. So, if you
know the port of arrival and the rough date, you can look through the films
and perhaps find the entry, even though the person arrived by air.

I was asked a question by a relative whose father came to America around
1950. Since he didn't come in thru Ellis Island but flew here, how can
my relative get information on his father? It seems that his father used
his mother's last name in Europe but changed it to his paternal last name
here in America.


Re: Links to download SLOWNIK GEOGRAFICZNY - Volumes I - XV #lithuania

Thanks for posting direct file links and instructions Joel. The SLOWNIK
GEOGRAFICZNY has been available for download [same DjVu format] >from at
least two sites for the past few years. While those sites require
searching and navigation to get to the desired publication and files,
the links provided in your message simplify the process.

At the Malopolska Digital Library site, switching the interface to English
to search [szukaj] for SLOWNIK GEOGRAFICZNY, results in files available
for either online browsing or free download. Of additional interest, on
the main page there are links to other digital libraries in Poland, and to
other digital libraries worldwide which I have found to be excellent
resources.
