Hi to all of you.

My late mother Cilly Mayer (maiden name Glaser), who was born in
Vienna in 1914 and passed away in August 1983, left after her
letters and photos. One of them is VM9514.

If any one of you recognize this person please let me know.

I would like to let you know that the February 2007 issue of
Sharsheret Hadorot (Vol. 21, No.1) has just appeared.

Dr. Jeff Malka presents us with a wide range of Sephardic family
names, their various types and the changes that occurred with them
in accordance to the time and place they were used.

Dr. Michael Toben contributes on the immigration of Jews >from
Eastern Europe to London’s East End.

Professor Daniel Wagner reports on the fascinating work that a group
of Polish and Israeli volunteers are carrying out in the restoration
of the unique cemetery of his ancestral town of Zdunska Wola, Poland.

Ms. Rose Feldman describes a project that deals with Pages of
Testimony that Yad Vashem has posted on the Internet.

Mr. Israel Pickholtz delineates the new restrictions that the
Ministry of the Interior has placed on access to records vital to
genealogists.

Finally the late Mark Usden wrote on Detective Work on the Dorins.

Closing this issue we have the abstracts of articles on Jewish
genealogy >from around the world; the short story by Dr. Yehuda
Klausner of an incident >from the rabbinic world; the column by our
librarian Mrs. Harriet Kasow and a book review on the interesting
book by Dr. Edward Gelles of London.

With best wishes, Yocheved

ViewMate 9501- marriage record from Mielnitsa #galicia

Anita Frankel
 

Thank you to all the wonderful people who translated the German words
in this bride's record. I thanked everyone individually; but, in case
I missed anyone: thank you.

I received almost thirty responses, and this seems to be the general
conclusion:

The bride's given name is Hindy (probably Polish version of German
Hinde.)

The next words are "tochter des" = daughter of.

Followed by her father's name: Leb Ber SCHACHTER.

A problem arose with the third letter >from the end of his surname.
It looks for all the world like an "l". But as one correspondent
noticed, another entry containing the same letter would have to read
"Jenle", rather than Jente. So we conclude it is a partially formed
"t" and his name was SCHACHTER, my maiden name.

This record is contained in the Galician films recently made
available at the Family History Library. I find it especially
interesting because I have never seen this type of entry before in
Galician marriage records.

Thanks to all,

Anita

Searching for Esther and Julius RAKUSIN from London #general

Daniel Gee <danielgee@...>
 

Dear Genners,
Have you ever heard of an Esther and Julius RAKUSIN.
They were married in London in 1949, but they have disappeared >from all records!
It is possible they made aliyah to the Promised Lane (ie Israel or America). It is
possible that Julius was born in 1905, meaning he was 44 when he wed and Esther
was much younger, but this is unlikely.
Any help would be appreciated.
Please respond privately!
Thank you,

Searching for sisters with surname AVNER in London (also LUBERT) #general

Daniel Gee <danielgee@...>
 

Dear Genners,
I am looking for information about 2 sisters who were born in about 1920 in
London. Their maiden name was AVNER and they had a brother Sidney who was killed
fighting Franco in Spain in 1936. Their parents were called Woolf and Dora; and
they married and had children in the 1940s. Their forenames and married surnames
are unknown, but they'd now be in their late 80s. They lived at a property in
Clapton Common in the 1950s and one may have had the surname LUBERT.
If you can help, please email me privately!
Thank you,

HIRSCHBEIN children - in German #general

Dovie <gelerinter13@...>
 

I've been trying to find the two older children of my great grandfather in
immigration records. Their names were Becky and Israel. I found a Sruel and Babe
HIRSCHBEIN departing >from Hamburg (where their father came >from on his trip over)
and I made the connection since there's a list of detained passengers that lists
Babe as being detained because of her father, Pincus (the name of my ggf) who lived
near where I believe they lived.

My question is, is there a way to find the American side of the manifest if there
is one? *IS* there even always an American side of the manifest? I know they
came in on the SS Blucher on Sep. 12, 1911. Is there anywhere to look for that
manifest? ellisisland.org has nothing.

Thanks.

But I want to note that the ship manifest that this

Hamburg. Checking the Hamburg manifest revealed a much
clearer name. As other posters have written, this is a

HACHENBURG #austria-czech

John and Nora Freund <jonora@...>
 

Is there anyone who has any information about the family HACHENBURG >from
Prague? The only information we have been able to find is the Terezin memorial book
which lists only three, who seem to be father, mother and son, each of whom
went to Terezin at a different time on a different transport.
The son, Hanus, who was born in 1929, was a poet and a playwright in
Terezin. (Yes, I realize he was only a teenager).

Baden Jewish cemetery - burial number discrepancies explained #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Discrepancy in burial records: I noted yesterday the big discrepancy between
figures of burials between the:

Baden Book I have [abt 1,270]
IKG database [many missing names]
Definitive database of the Baden Jewish community [abt 2,200]

After a long discussion with Thomas Schaerf I can now clarify the situation.
The cemetery records which were given to the IKG, Vienna at the end of the
1930s were in an incomplete form, as kept in caretakers' booklets.

The data in the book "Die Juden von Baden und Ihr Friedhof" was written by
people who took their data >from the existing tombstones without consulting the
Community at all.

The Baden record books are very detailed and appear to be complete and show
abt 2,200 burials. The include children and many poorer people who could not
afford proper engraved headstones. Their graves were just *numbered*. Many of
these were of poor quality and have disintegrated and the *numbers* are no
longer readable but the names are recorded in the books.

Thus, the wonderful photographic database we have, with about 618 photographs
is unfortunately only about a quarter of the known burials in Baden-bei-Wien:

http://www.grave-pictures.at/orion/album_cat.php?cat_id=4

Thomas and I explored a few things together and for example, we extracted all
the people buried in Baden with a "Holleschau, Moravia" connection. We also
explored the three ENGELSRATH burials and the results are interesting.
I will post something on that shortly.

Furthermore the Karl KOHN [dob 25.4.1889] query has been solved in a most
extraordinary manner but that is another long story. Karl's parents came >from a
famous Mattersdorf family [Jakob KOHN], who lived and worked in Baden and they
are buried in Mattersdorf; unfortunately no graves remain but there is a very
large family spread throughout the world as Karl was one of 13 siblings, one of
whom is still alive and visited Baden >from NY, aged over 100, two years ago!

Sigger James Werner's gtgt grandparents' graves [Abraham and Babette WEINMANN]
are in very good shape - so, all in all, we have had some great breakthroughs.

Thank you, Thomas.
