I search the descendants of brothers who founded the OK Bazaars stores in
South Africa:

Malech COHEN, wife, Rose
Samuel (Sam) COHEN, wife, Dora

They emigrated to South Africa, probably through Rouxville, OFS, anytime
between 1900-1926, >from Kovno, Lithuania, and possibly spent some time in
London. One of their 7 known siblings, Sarah (COHEN) BLUMENTHAL, is my
grandmother. Their father is Abraham Isaac
COHEN/KAHAN/KAGAN/KAHANOV/KAHANOFF.

They quite possibly knew the family of Rose (COHEN) & Hyman BANUS/BEINASH
(var.) in Lithuania and London - one of their 6 children, Mark BANUS, was
a renowned London accountant.

Thank you for this help.

Emma and Paul Neumann of Vienna #austria-czech

hnshani@...
 

Dear All,

This is my first letter/request to you.

I am looking for information about my ancestors, Emma and Paul NEUMANN
and their family. They lived in Vienna.

Here are the details I have:

Emma NEUMANN was the daughter of Yaakob/Jakob and Johanna POLLAK. She
was probably born in Budapest around 1880-1890 (she had a sister,
Regine, who was born in Budapest in 1878, and a brother, Lajos ). Emma
grew up in Vienna with her father's sister and husband, Johanna and
Karl KOPPEL. She married a Paul NEUMANN, who was a fur merchant. They
had a daughter, Grete, and a son(?).

They still lived in Vienna in the beginning of 9/1940. By that time
the daughter was married. I don't know what happened to any of them
afterwards.

I checked Yad Va'shem and the Austrian list - Dukumentationarchiv des
oesterreichischen Widerstandes, and found some people by that name
(Paul and Emma Neumann). However, these are popular first and last
names, and as I don't have their dates of birth or addresses in
Vienna, it is difficult to match the name/s with the people I am
looking for. For that reason I haven't contacted yet the International
Tracing Service in Bad Arolsen, Germany.

I'd appreciate any ideas that will help me find more information about
Emma and Paul Neumann and their offsprings.

Thanks for your help. Please reply in private (hnshani@...).

Searching for Alice Kussi Haas #austria-czech

I am looking for Alice Kussi Haas (b. Jan 25, 1900 in Prague) and her son,
Alfred (b. May 25, 1925 in Magdeburg). Alice was the widow of Rudolf Haas
(d. May 2, 1933 in Prague) and the daughter of Julius Kussi. I know that
Alice and Alfred were in Prague in 1938, but I can find no further record
of them, either during the war or afterward.

I am also looking for Alice's brother, Bedrich or Fritz Kussi and his wife,
Erika Seifert Kussi. They did survive the war and were in Prague in 1948.

listing her parent's names. They are Siman DWORKIN and Faye PORTNOY. I know my
grandmother had a cousin by the name of Louis Dworkin, he was a witness to my
grandfather Abraham Harris's naturalization in Chicago, IL. My grandmother was
born in Russia around 1884 and came to the United States as a bride in 1905. The
naturalization papers list her birthplace as Babie but I can find nothing by that
name. My grandfather, her husband, was >from Kiev. His given name was Abraham
Abramowitz, but changed it to Harris when he became a citizen. If any of this is
familiar to you, please contact me.

Dear Genners,

I just saw a copy of my grandmother, Sarah DWORKIN HARRIS's, death certificate
listing her parent's names. They are Siman DWORKIN and Faye PORTNOY. I know my
grandmother had a cousin by the name of Louis Dworkin, he was a witness to my
grandfather Abraham Harris's naturalization in Chicago, IL. My grandmother was
born in Russia around 1884 and came to the United States as a bride in 1905. The
naturalization papers list her birthplace as Babie but I can find nothing by that
name. My grandfather, her husband, was >from Kiev. His given name was Abraham
Abramowitz, but changed it to Harris when he became a citizen. If any of this is
familiar to you, please contact me.

Quarantine in Hamburg? #general

Barbara Siegel
 

Dear Genners,
Family lore has it that my pggm, Fredricka/Feige HERTZBERG, travelled with
several of her children >from Tukums, Latvia to the U.S. via Hamberg. The
time frame was somewhere around 1885. In Hamburg several of the children
were ill and all were quarantined for a time in Hamburg. If true, this
could be a very helpful bit of information as I have not been able to find
them on any passenger lists,or have any dates of departure or arrival in the
U.S.

Thus, I have three questions:
1. Is it true that there was a policy of possible quarantine in Hamburg
around the time of this voyage?
2. And if so would records have been kept of those transit passengers who
indeed were quarantined?
3. If there are/were such records is it possible to access them-how and
where?

Any facts or suggestions would be most welcome.
