My father's brother, Harry, was born in Russia, but noted on
census and other government docs that he was born in New Jersey
My father, in writing up my grandmother's naturalization
application papers indicated she had only four
children--omitting Harry, the first born. I haven't been able
to figure it out for certain but my grandparents were married
in May, 1889 (civil?) and Harry was born April, 1889. Hmmmm.
Since my grandmother didn't come over here until 1897 for
certain he wasn't born here.
There are some explanations for this. Could it be that Harry's
father, died before he was born and that your grandmother
remarried quickly as she had Harry on the way? Could it be that
your Father chose to include on the naturalization application
only those children whose Father was common, perhaps so that the
issue wouldn't be clouded? Of course it could also be that Harry
was actually the child of a sibling or cousin as it seems that
kids went to live with relatives quite a bit more in those days
than they do now.

Jews in Waldshut/Tiengen #general

Dottie Miller
 

In researching my GUGGENHEI:MER ancestors of Breisach, Ihringen and
Waldshut/Tiengen. I have learned that Marx Marem GUGGENHEIMER, born
between 1715 and 1720, may have originated in Waldshut/Tiengen, Baden,
near the Swiss border. I have read in the jewishgen.org>
infoFiles>Germany>German-Jewish SIG >Community Histories> "Tracking
Jewish History through the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany" by Dr.
Joachim Hahn, that Jews lived in the Tiengen district of the combined
town of Waldshut/Tiengen for 5 centuries till 1940.

Does anyone know if there were Jews in Waldshut around 1700-1740? If it
was said that the family came >from Waldshut, would that refer to
Waldshut specifically or to the combined towns?

Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to provide!

Need translation of letter from Rzeszow Archives #general

Leslie Weinberg <artsoul@...>
 

I had sent an email to the Archives in Rzeszow to ask how I could have
soeone research a marriage record and the records of the birth of a son
to the person whose marriage certificate I am seeking. I received two
short sentences in Polish and I have no idea what they say. It reads as
follows:

W za_czeniu przesy_amy 9 sztuk kserokopii zamowionych przez
Pani_dokumentow odnosz_cych si_do rodziny Eizen z Tyczyna. Jednocze_nie
poinformowa_,_e rozliczenia finansowego dokonamy za po_rednictwem
JRI-Poland. It is signed by the Director, Dr. Jan Basta.

I would hope I am not being directed back to JRI-Poland, which does NOT
have these records. Would someone be kind enough to tell me what this
letter says/ And to think....my grandfather spoke four languages!!!!!

March meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Bergen County #general

Edward Rosenbaum <erosenbaum@...>
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Bergen County will be having its next
meeting on Sunday, March 13th. Alice Gould will be speaking about the
Jewish Cemeteries of Newark, NJ. The meeting starts at 2PM and is held
at the JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly. The JCC of the Palisades is
located at 401 East Clinton Avenue in Tenafly. Their phone number is
201-569-7900.

If you need directions, go to our homepage at

* * * About our speaker * * *
Alice Perkins Gould was born in Newark, New Jersey and lived there for
part of her childhood. A graduate of Orange High school, she earned a BS
degree at Douglass College and an M Ed at Rutgers University. For 28
years, she taught secondary school mathematics. The widow of Philip
Perkins, her family includes a son, daughter-in-law, and 3
grandchildren.

Early retirement gave her the leisure to pursue her avid interest in
genealogy. After becoming members of the Jewish Genealogical Society of
North Jersey, Alice and her second husband Bob Gould learned of a
project of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical
Societies to document every Jewish cemetery in the world. Since they
both were born in Newark, they volunteered to document the old Newark
cemeteries. This project included finding where the cemeteries were,
when and by whom the cemeteries were started, and recording the
information engraved on the gravestones. She has spent the last ten
years leading groups of volunteers in documenting the Newark cemeteries.

In researching the existing literature, Alice discovered that there was
no written account of the establishment of the Jewish cemeteries in
Newark. Her years of research subsequently led to the writing of a book
about the cemeteries and about the Jews buried there >from the middle of
the nineteenth century to the end of the twentieth century.

Her love of genealogy and travel have resulted in visits to relatives
that she has discovered in Israel, Slovakia, London, Canada, Kentucky,
California and Ohio. She presently keeps very active answering
telephone, written, and e-mail inquiries >from all over the world about
individuals buried in Newark.

New SIG member Re: KOPPENHAGEN family #scandinavia

Martin Fischer
 

I am a new subscriber to the Scandinavia SIG. I am a moderately
experienced amateur genealogist whose only fluent language is
English. I have been a subscriber to several other JewishGen SIGs
for years, but relatively recently learned of a connection to
Denmark, so I have added the Scandinavian list to my subscriptions.

A researcher in Berlin, Germany, named Lars Menk had seen one of
my previous postings on GerSIG naming some of my ancestors. He
was kind enough to document the following for me:

"At Wongrowitz there was also the family KOP(P)ENHAGEN. The teacher
Michael Leiser KOPPENHAGEN, b. ca. 1794, had moved there >from Copenhagen
(København), Denmark before 1825. He taught German, Hebrew and French.
He was married to Dorchen LEVY, b. ca. 1803 in Wongrowitz. Both were living
in Wongrowitz in 1836. He became naturalized Prussian citizen in Nakel
(Naklo nad Notecia) on 11 Aug 1834. He spent the last years of his life
in Breslau (Wroclaw) where he died around 1865. His daughter Martha
KOPPENHAGEN was married to Hermann DAUS(T)"

The Denmark connection was also mentioned in a 1930s document >from the
Landmanshaft of Wongrowitz, Prussia (Wagrowiec, Poland) that I received
from the writer Emily Rose and had translated. A summary of several
prominent members of the group included the following:

"...the teacher M. L. Koppenhagen >from Denmark, who came to Wongrowitz at
the beginning of the 19th century. He taught German, French, and Hebrew,
married a Levy >from Wongrowitz, and spent the last years of his life in
Breslau, where he died in 1865."

I have posted my somewhat limited KOPPENHAGEN family tree at:

http://mefischer1.home.comcast.net/Trees/Koppenhagen.pdf

I would be interested in learning if anyone knows of any siblings of
Michael Leiser KOPPENHAGEN or siblings of his daughter Martha KOPPENHAGEN
DAUS/DAUST.

Gwyrich Castle, Abergele, North Wales--Hachsharah (Hapoel Hamizrachi?) #unitedkingdom

MBernet@...
 

I have discovered the British alien registration record ("get out of
internment, free") of a probable relative, Milli Mirjam Koenigshoefer,
which gives her
address as Gwyrich Castle, Abergele. She is listed as "agricultural
trainee." I assume this Gwyrich Castle was a Hachsharah (training farm for
preparing for Israel).

Abergele is a seaside resort on the coast of North Wales, about half way
between Rhyl and Conway Bay. Not far away is St Asaph ("the world's smallest
city") where a Hachsharah of Bachad/Hapoel Hamizrachi was located.

Does anyone have information on Gwyrich Castle, or the St Asaph hachsharah?
Were they the same? Does anyone know of Milli Mirjam Koenigshoefer, born
Breslau, 1920?
