Re: your thoughts/ideas/suggestions

I found the gravestones in Richfield, MN on Findagrave. Nathan's father is Yehuda and Sol's father is Moshe.
If you go to Ancestry and Search > Public Member Trees  for Nathan GOTTSTEIN you will find a tree where Nathan and Solomon are brothers, the father's name is Louis Moses GOTTSTEIN.
The Hebrew name often associated with Louis is Yehuda 
The Hebrew name often associated with Moses is Moshe
Nathan's stone has the first given name of his father and Sol's stone has the second given name of his father. If the person posting the tree has the correct information, they are indeed brothers.

According to all U.S. census records available  Nathan and Solomon Gottstein are brothers.  When the family first came to America they lived in Des Moines, Iowa.  Shortly after the father passed away, the family moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota where they spent the rest of their lives. I found the cemetery where Nathan, his wife, and Solomon are buried.   I have communicated with the cemetery office who brought to my attention that the tombstones have different father’s name.   I have spent the evening trying to figure this out  I have used all the usual sites we, genealogists look at.  But I am missing something    Your thoughts, suggestions, ideas would be appreciated.  

The father, Louis Gottstein died in 1910 in Des Moines but I was unable to find anything on his death or a cemetery for him. The mother, Sarah is on all the census records as widow and as far as I can tell never remarried.  She is buried in the Minneapolis area.  The family is from Lithuania and immigrated in 1910.

Thank you for all suggestions and helpful ideas that you might be able to give me.

IGRA Meeting December 2nd in Ra'anana, Israel-“Genealogy and Origin of Jewish Families in Serbia andCroatia”

Elena Bazes
 

Join us for the next IGRA meeting in Ra’anana on December 2, 2019. Our guest speaker is Radovan Sremac who will speak on “Genealogy and the Origin of Jewish Families in Serbia and Croatia”. The lecture will be in English.

In this lecture Radovan will speak about Jewish genealogy, historical sources on families and discovering the origins of Jewish families in Serbia and Croatia. Jews have settled in present-day Serbia and Croatia since ancient times. However, mass settlement did not occur until the 18th century. It is possible to trace family histories in the area from the first half of the 19th century when Jewish vital records started to be kept.

Radovan Sremac is an archaeologist and a curator who has published many articles in the field of archaeology and history. He is also the author of several books on genealogy and history of the Jewish and non-Jewish populations in Serbia. He has also been recognized by the Israeli government for expanding friendship between Serbia and Israel.

NEW LOCATION: Ra’anana Archives, 6 Golomb Street (between Eliezer Yaffe and Borochov streets), Ra'anana.


Doors open at 19:00.   Meeting begins at 19:30.

Cost: IGRA members-Free Admission     Non-members-NIS 20

Re: your thoughts/ideas/suggestions

Trudy,
You didn't mention the names given on each gravestone for the father. It may also be possible that one gravestone has a Yiddish name for the father (kinnui), another has a Hebrew name (which would have been their formal religious name). For example, someone known as Leib (always a possibility for someone who takes the name Louis) could have a Hebrew name of Aryeh (both meaning "lion"). Another example, using my great-grandfather and his brother: one's gravestone lists his father as "Shimon Leib," the other gives his father's name as "Shimon Yehuda." With Leib being Yiddish for Lion, which was the symbol of the tribe of Yehuda, it is possible to understand how both names might have been viewed as fitting the same father. Or Louis Gottstein may have originally had a double name (for example, Aharon Leib), and ended up with "Leib" on one gravestone and "Aharon" on the other. These alternatives should be explored as well as the possibility that Nathan and Solomon did not share a father. 
All the best,
Jay

Re: Germany Easing of Restoration of German Citizenship for Descendants of Nazi Persecution #germany

Lisa Lepore
 

Hi Joan,

 

I agree that many are unhappy with today’s US politics.  You often hear people say they will leave the US, but really, how many people are likely to do that?  

There has been quite an increase in the number of people trying to get Italian dual citizenship – some for this very reason.    

 

I am not Jewish, so I may have a different point of view, but to me I see it not as insulting, but rather as people taking the opportunity to regain something that was taken away from them. 

They don’t have to want to live in Germany.  With a German passport they can go anywhere in the EU.   Maybe they will just use it to take advantage of shorter lines when travelling, or being

able to stay in an EU country for a longer time, or maybe they will do nothing with their citizenship at all other than to say they regained it, because they could.

Hi,
Personally I am glad to see Germany move further in reconciliation, etc., and I have always maintained that they are far ahead of Austria in this regard.  However I find it absurd and a little bit insulting to see Jews trying to claim German citizenship.  I can't help but think that there are two things that influence this "movement" and have very little to do with German reconciliation. One is how people view the current (US) administration (yes, "him") and their fears of the US going extreme right-wing (won't happen, we are still and will remain a democracy), and two not giving a thought to aliyah to Israel because of their dislike of Netanyahu, et.al.  Well they still engage in free and democratic elections in Israel (perhaps too many lol) and once you become a citizen you can vote.  I did and I have voted in past elections.  But if you really do want to acquire German citizenship then I would require that you do the following: for men, put on a kippah and walk the streets of German cities, say Berlin for example.  Or for both men and women wear some identifying clothing that makes gentiles think that you are Jewish, whether you are or not.  If you come out of that experience with no problems, etc. then fine become a German citizen if that is what you want.  As my father would say "Gain und zay gezint".
