ARENSBERG family of Dransfeld [with SITE CITE - Goettingen Gedenkbuch] #germany

Peter Lobbenberg
 

Dear GerSIGers

Albert ARENSBERG was born in Dransfeld, near Gottingen (O umlaut), on 19
December 1877. His parents were Rudolf ARENSBERG and his wife Sofie/Sophie
born ROSENFELDER. Albert and his wife emigrated to Palestine in 1936;
my 2nd cousin is his granddaughter.

A few days ago I came across a book called Die juedischen Buerger im Kreis
Goettingen 1993-1945 https://tinyurl.com/y99bzg93. In it are short
biographies of Frieda ARENSBERG born 1875, also a child of Rudolf
and Sophie, and of Frieda's niece Hildegard DANNENBERG born ARENSBERG.
Frieda and Hildegard, together with Hildegard's husband and their three
daughters, succeeded in coming to England c1939. I have further
discovered that Stolpersteine have been laid in Dransfeld both for
Frieda and for Hildegard and her family.


Unfortunately the book does not name Hildegard's parents, but as her birth
name was ARENSBERG and she is described as Frieda's niece, it seems likely
that her father was a brother of Albert and Frieda.

Until now, neither my cousin nor I were aware that Albert had any siblings.
Naturally this is an exciting discovery for us. We're in course of tracing
Hildegard's living descendants; Frieda was single and had no children.

Research on the usual genealogical websites, newspaper archives etc has so
far been unsuccessful in identifying Hildegard's parents. Can any kind
member provide further information, or suggest local sources where enquiries
could be instigated?

Grateful thanks in advance for any help.

Visiting Nancy #france

bernerfolk
 

I'm planning a visit to Nancy, France as that's where my GGF & GF
lived prior to emigration to the US in 1898. Both before and during
my visit I'd like to learn as much as I can about the Jewish community
in Nancy, especially the community of Jews who moved there >from Poland.
What drew them to Nancy? What was the Jewish community like at the time
(dichotomy between families who'd been there for generations vs newcomers?)?
What was the relationship like between the gentile community and the Jews
in the late 19th century?

I'd be grateful for any resources, in print or an in person guide, you can
recommend. What I'm finding online relates primarily to earlier periods
than my focus.

Many thanks,

Manchester Synagogue records in 1880s #unitedkingdom

Angela Lehrer
 

I'd really appreciate the help of the group in locating synagogue
archival records of my great grandparents >from the Manchester area in
the 1880s. I've searched online but since I live in Israel am unable
to visit the archives personally.

The specific records I'm seeking are:
1. Marriage record/details of Annie/Chaya Esther and Henry/Chanoch
Bernstein between 1882 and 1886
2. Burial record of Henry/Chanoch Bernstein between 1885 and 1888
3. Marriage record/details of Annie/Chaya Esther and Harris Jacobs
between 1886 and 1890. The couple lived in Fernie Street in 1898 when
their son was born.

I haven't found any civil records for any of these events on-line

Many thanks for any help you can give me

Searching for Family of Sophia Kohn #general

Michael Kuzmick
 

I've hit a dead end in following my family line >from the Czech
Republic (known as Bohemia in their time).

My Great-Grandmother Frantizka Kohn was born 20 Aug 1876 in Prague.
She died in Bayonne, New Jersey in 1963.

I was able to confirm her birth in the 1876 Synagogue Geburtsbuch
through the Czech Republic National Archive.

from here it gets a little murky. Frantizka was listed as illegitimate.
Her mother, Sophia Kohn is listed in the index as the mother but in the document
itself, the name listed is Rosie. Sophia's 1901 Bayonne, New Jersey Death Record
lists her mother as Rosie and father as Cohen.

After a conversation with a JewishGen member, we determined that was most likely
a clerical error. Somehow Rosie was listed as the mother rather than Sophia.

After Sophia immigrated to the United States in the late 1880's, she married
Eduard Juscsak in Manhattan, New York in 1884. This record (discovered through the
LDS) lists her father as Ignatz and her mother as Theresia.

Here the dots don't seem to connect. I understand the inherent faults
in human memory and record keeping. The further back one goes, birth
dates seem less important and are listed by year or are just "estimated."

I did check the JewishGen Archives for marriages and could not find an
Ignatz and Theresia marriage. I did find two names (Ignatz and Rosie)
linked in a cemetery in Prague but have no idea as to whether these
are the same people. Was Theresia also called Rosie?

Any wisdom on how to move forward >from those with a shared experience
would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards - Michael Kuzmick

Kreine GOLD (nee REIZHEVICH) #lithuania

Simon Zelman
 

Hi All,

I'm running into many inconsistencies in records as I'm researching
the family of my great x2 grandmother Kreine GOLD, and I'm at a bit of
a loss as to what to believe. Kreine was married to Khaim GOLD /
GOLDAS in Vilnius, and I have the 1905 marriage record listing her
father as Leib, her age as 21 (so born ~1884) and her town of origin
as Stakliskes. She died in 1980 and her tombstone in Vilnius has her
date of birth as 1888 and her patronymic as "Maushevna", meaning her
father's name was Movsha/Mausha (something my grandfather confirmed,
but this could just mean that her father's name was Movsha Leib).

It looks like Stakliskes has full (?) birth records >from 1881-1886,
and then 1889-1893 (and more). I have gone through all of the original
birth records on FamilySearch and have not found Kreine's, though I
did find several other REIZHEVICH/RAYSHEVICH/RADZEVICH births. The
family was in Alytus after WWI and in Kaunas >from around 1930 until
they were evacuated to the inner USSR as the Nazis were approaching.
Kreine's 1941 Kaunas voter record lists her DOB as 1888, but no
patronymic. A 1940 Kaunas draftee list has her down as being 50 years
old, so ~1890, but still no patronymic.

I haven't been able to find anything with her mother's name on it, and
in looking at the Stakliskes records, it looks like there were several
potential Leib's that could have been her father, and there was a
Movsha as well. Several of the REIZHEVICHs that I found could easily
be her siblings (and therefore give me her mother's info), but I can't
seem to find anything to confirm.

Any tips or suggestions? There is so much information on the
REIZHEVICH family in Stakliskes, so if/when I can finally find the
connection, this would bring this branch of the tree to the early
1700s!

Thank you!

Dear RomSiggers.
I visited the new cemetery in Cluj-Napoca last week.
By the data I found in JOWBR I looked for this cemetery at 116 Clea Turzii.
At this address I found an old and inactive Jewish cemetery, but not the
new Jewish
cemetery. The new Jewish cemetery is at 154/156 Calea Turzii as can also
be seen
