Florence & Henry Wellisch <kelwel@...>
 

Bob Hanscom and I are planning to put this on the internet.
While going through the Jewish birth and marriage registers of
Vienna 1784 - 1848 I found certain interesting professions:
Any comments regarding the translations?

Wechselpapiernegotiant = Trader in promissory notes
Admodiateur = Leaseholder
Haendler mit Staatspapieren = Trader in Government securities
Districtstabakverleger = District manager of tobacco products ?
Traiteur = Caterer
Handlungskommissionaer = Trade commissioner
Oekonomielieferant = General wholesale supplier ?
Warensensal = Broker in general goods
Privilegiumsinhaber = Holder of a privilege?
Sekretaer des Baron Rothschild: (1832, Moritz Goldschmidt)
Armenkommissaer = Commissioner for the poor
Verabschiedeter Polizeikorporal, jetzt Conducteur bei der Nordbahn =
Retired policecorporal, now conductor for the northern railway
Prokurist bei Rothschild (Leopold von Wertheimstein)
Manufakturszeichner = Textile designer ?
Gen. Sekretaer der Ungarischen Centralbahn, Wien (1847, Josef Sichrowsky)
Gen. Sekretaer der Nordbahn (1847, Heinrich Sichrowsky)
Universitaetsprofessor und Leibarzt in Konstantinopel (1847, Dr. Sigmund
Spitzer)
Koscherfleichversilberer = Kosher meat ???? (This beats me; what has kosher
meat to do with silver?)

Belzec #lithuania

Joyce Field
 

The entire book by Robin O'Neil, "Belzec: Prototype of the Final
Solution; Hitler's Answer to the Jewish Question," is now online at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/belzec1/belzec1.html. You will find
a forward and introduction,16 chapters with extensive footnotes,
appendices, a glossary, and an extensive bibliography. This
original work was contributed to JewishGen by Robin and the online
presentation was done by Lance Ackerfeld and Max Heffler.

Robin says of the focus of the books, " What follows is the
background of how this policy of genocide was conceived, put into
operation and staffed, and how the ordinary men involved were caught
up in one of the blackest moments in human history."

This is not an easy read, by any means, but the scholarship will add
immensely to our understanding of the Holocaust.

Carol Rider's recent request for a telephone caller in Sweden has given me
the idea to ask the same. I have a potential relative I have traced to
Malmo, Sweden, and I would like to make contact. I speak English, French,
Hebrew and a bisele yiddish but no Swedish. If there is someone who can make
the initial contact for me, I would be appreciative.
please write to me at: bzilber@hotmail.com
Thank you,

For what it's worth, my experience in Sweden is that every Swede speaks some
sort of English, generally quite good. It may be worth your while to try
making the call yourself. Why introduce an intermediary unnecessarily?

who and where are the descendants of FABIAN family from KROSNO POLAND #poland

Leah and Eli Teicher
 

My paternal grand mother Hadassa YUST(or JUST)- ZUCKERMAN had an aunt (her
father-SHMUEL JUST's sister) by the name MALKA JUST - FABIAN.
MALKA FABIAN married to YA'AKOV (or JACOB) FABIAN >from KROSNO - POLAND.
JACOB FABIAN born on 1864 went on 1899 (he was 35 years old) to U.S.A
(according to Ellis Island records), there he went to his brother Josef.

Later, on 1901 arrived to the U.S.A MALKA FABIAN with 3 of their kids:

1)BENJAMIN who was 4 years old, born on 1898, later his American name was
BEN FABIAN. He married BETH FRIEDLAND

2)CHASKEL who was 11 months, later his American name was CHARLIE FABIAN.
He later married ?

3)A girl, probably LEAH (written in ELLIS ISLAND papers ...L?eaci, means
LEYCHE?) who was 7 years old, born on 1895, married?

JACOB and MALKA FABIAN had other children probably born in the U.S.A.:

4)RUTH FABIAN who married BEART SCHWIMMER

5)ANNE FABIAN who married MORRIS CAACLFIN

JACOB FABIAN (though he is not "our family") had a brother - BERL FABIAN
from KORCZYNA - POLAND which is a little village close to KROSNO. BERL went
also to the U.S.A with their widow mother - BRANDEL, wife - D'VORA, and 5
little kids: BENJAMIN, BEILE, ELIE, RACHEL, JACOB. They arrived in ELLIS
ISLAND on 1900.

Who are the descendants of FABIAN family, my grand mother's aunt? where are
they to day?

You have a large family here in Israel, who would like have contacts with
you.

We succeed in tracing here and abroad most of the members of the JUST large
family, we'd like to have them all known. This "branch" is unknown to us at
all.

Thanks for any help!!

Pogroms around Bialystok #poland

Rosalind
 

Verbal history is that my maternal GGF's family, cousins, sibs were
wiped out in a progrom near Briansk near Bialystok about 1884. Soon
after this my GGF wife and chiuldren left Warsaw for Ireland.

Does anyone have reading material or suggestions on research of that
year for Briansk, as I have not found anything on the Jewishgen
listings so far.

Thanks
