SS5 vs. NumIndent #general

David Simon Bendory <david90@...>
 

Are there differences between an SS5 and a NumIndent extract from
social security records? In particular, if the NumIndent does not have
details on the parents of the deceased, is that because the SS5 does
not have it? Or will I get additional information >from the SS5?


Re: Family in Argentina #general

Carlos Glikson
 

Josh Brown mentioned that Braine KRAWIETZKY's address in 1957 according to
the Dyatlovo (Zhetl), Belarus yizkor book was

"Braine Krawietzky at Fraga Sarmiento, Argentina"

This looks like a typo for Fragata Sarmiento, and not Fraga Sarmiento.
There now is a street in Buenos Aires called Fragata Sarmiento... but an
address with that street name would have to be completed with a door
number, and there is no number here. Determinining if there was a street
called Fragata Sarmiento in 1957 would require further research, but seems
unlikely.

For 61 years the Fragata Sarmiento was the Argentine navy frigate training
ship, a 279 ft and three mast wind powered tall ship. It sailed in 40
cruises since 1899 to 1960 completing the cadets' training after their last
year at the Military Naval School. Midshipmen complete a journey on board
the frigates prior to commision.

In 1957 the Fragata Sarmiento was still sailing and her replacement - the
3600 tons Libertad frigate, winner of various editions of the Blue Ribbon
and the Boston Tea Pot regattas - being built. I am not checking now, but
probably the Buenos Aires street named Fragata Sarmiento was named so only
after 1960, when the famous ship stopped sailing.

Braine Krawietzky would be a very rare name to be found in the probably
100% non-Jewish list of the crew of an Argentine navy ship in 1957, adding
to this his approximate age of 67 if born about 1890. Maybe "Braine
Krawietzky at Fraga Sarmiento, Argentina" comes >from a picture of him
visiting on board the ship? Maybe he was working on the new frigate
Libertad and studying building details of the Sarmiento?

The Fragata Sarmiento has become a floating museum and is harboured and
floating elegantly at the Buenos Aires Port. Just in case Braine was a crew
member, the Ship / Museum's address is

Museo Buque Museo Fragata A. R. A. "Presidente Sarmiento"
Av. Dávila y Tte. General Juan Domingo Perón
(1104) Capital Federal
Republica Argentina

Phones (54 11) 4334-9336 and 4334-9386

The ship/museum depends on the Navy's "Department of Naval Historic Studies"

Departamento De Estudios Históricos Navales
Avenida Almirante Brown 401
(1155) Capital Federal

Phones (54 11) 4362-1248 / 4362-1130

WIENER from Sinnicolau Mare, Romania #general

David Simon Bendory <david90@...>
 

Research results are coming in and I've got new family branches to
explore. My GGGF's mother was named Elisabeth WIENER and she was born
in Sinnicolau Mare, Romania. Her parents were Abraham and Hanni.
Elisabeth was born Feb 5, 1821. If this sounds like it may fit your
family, please contact me privately.

Lifshitz or Lipshitz #ukraine

I have recently been told of a family relationship to a well known violinist
(cellist or bass violin also possible) named Shule or Saul Lifshitz or
Lipshitz. He is said to have performed in the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles
during WWII and is known to have died before 1949. He is >from Russia.

Does anyone have a reference that might provide a biography or an obituary
for this person?

Sally Isak Salomon and Birgitte Levy #scandinavia

teri Orourke <teriorourke@...>
 

Dear Mr. Falk,

First, let me say how much I enjoy my subscription to the now
scandinavia@lyris.jewishgen.org. I have learned a tremendous amount
about genealogy research in Denmark.

Thank you for your information regarding Sally and Birgitte.
Leif Rosenstock had informed me earlier that Sally and Birgitte
had 5 children and that possibly 2 were deceased before the parents
died. There was a "grant" and it was divided up between Pauline,
Emma and Berendt upon the parents death. In the LDS International
Genealogical Index I found a Pauline or Pouline Salomon born to
Sally and Birgitte Dec. 14, 1839 and a Pauline Salomon married
to Isaac I. Levin June 15, 1864, both recorded by the Mosaic
Congregation in Copenhagen. Perhaps that information will help.
I did not find a marriage date for Berendt and I know Emma Salomon
was married to Oscar Georg Gabriel Haas, recorded May 26, 1861,
Mosaic Congregation, Copenhagen.

The only Bernhard Berendt Salomon listed does not coincide with his
birthdate.

I am unable to find a birthdate or the parents of Sally Isak or
Birgitte Levy. Also, I am also unable to confirm that Thekla Gabriel
Haas is the only child of Emma Salomon and Oscar Georg Gabriel Haas.

Again, thank you in advance for any assistance with the names and
dates listed above.

One last question! I found Oscar Georg Haas to be born to Peter
Georg Haas and Henriette Lovise Wengel and christened May 7, 1837 at
Hellgaands Kirke, Copenhagen. How can find out when he was confirmed
or admitted into the Jewish Community in Copenhagen?
