Searching for SACHS and GRAETZ #general

"Sachs-Amrami,Naomi,GLENDALE,FTD Export"...
 

Dear cousins,

I'm hoping that someone out there will recognize the names of my G-GF's
brother, sister and nephew and perhaps what happened to them during / after
WWII.
My great-grandfather, Hans Gottschalk SACHS, born 1882 had a younger sister
Lotte (born July 1886) and a younger brother Friedrich (born January 1889).
All three were born in Berlin to Hermann and Bertha Emma (nee ZIRKER) SACHS.

Lotte married Hugo GRAETZ, probably around 1905. They had a son, Gerd GRAETZ
who would have been born sometime between 1906 - 1914 in Berlin. According
to the Berlin tax authority, Lotte and Hugo emigrated to Czechoslovakia in
1933, and Hugo died there sometime between April and September 1934.
According to cards on file at the ITS, Gerd emigrated to Cuba in 1933, and
Lotte emigrated in 1934, presumably after Hugo passed away. >from there I
have lost the trail. I have checked the Social Security Death Index,
thinking that they may have emigrated to the US, as did many Germans - but
so far to no avail. Gerd would be in his upper 90's if still alive today,
and I am trying trying trying to find him or his descendants (assuming that
he married and had children at some point) before the trail gets any colder
than it already is.
As for Friedrich, he is listed in the Berlin address book until 1938, at
which point he disappears. Yad Vashem researched their files for me, and I
have searched all the holocaust databases I can find, but without any luck.
I firmly believe that he survived - and emigrated - but to where??? He was a
licensed engineer, and ran a radio shop in Berlin at the end of the 30's.
Do any of these people ring any bells with anyone out there? If so, or even
if there is a remote possibility, please contact me directly.

Thanks,
Naomi Sachs-Amrami

Berlin marriages 1868/9 translation please? #general

bettina glass <bettinaglass@...>
 

Hello,
English is my only language, but I try to understand as much German as I can
before enlisting help. I am currently searching LDS film 477302, Berlin
marriages 1865-1871. I understand the gist of the records and the names are
easily identified. However, I would like a literal translation so that I can
identify all the German words in the old handwriting. The reading is very
slow for me and I worry that I am missing something. Can someone please send
me a literal translation of all the wording >from any Berlin marriage record
from this film without necessarily stating the actual names ? The
handwriting is very small and difficult for me to identify. Basically, every
record appears to be in the same format, using the same words except for
names and occupations and where stated, home towns. Even just identifying
all the German words would help. I can then try to translate them myself.
One friend has already given me a free translation of the main parts of a
record, but I don't want to strain the friendship by asking for more. This
additional help would be much appreciated. Please respond privately:

bettina glass <bettinaglass@...>
 

Hello,

Does anyone recognise this record? Isaac Samuel GLASS, master shoemaker,
b.ca.1842 (where ?) married in Berlin 11 Nov. 1868, Rebecca-Rosalie BAUM,
b.ca.1836 (where ?), daughter of master joiner Ludwig BAUM and his wife
Blume nee BAUM. I can't confirm that they belong to me, but I hope that
someone has more information that might do so.

Best wishes, and please contact privately:

Hello,

Researching my GLASS family who moved to Berlin sometime mid-19th C, I have
found a marriage record for the elder daughter Hanne, b.ca.1840, Schrimm,
Posen. She married Isaac MEYER, b.ca.1819 (where ?) married in Berlin 24
APR. 1869. Isaac MEYER was a master furrier. Hanne-Johanne's father, David
GLASS was a master tailor and his wife was Male BRAUNSPAHN.

Does anyone have this Isaac MEYER on their family tree please?
