INTRO: ANDRON / ANDORN from Berka #germany

=Juergen_Nitsche <junitsche58@...>
 

Intro: ANDRON/ANDORN >from BERKA

I am looking for information about a man, buried in autumn 1917
at the Jewish cemetery in Erfurt. The surname should be ANDRON
or ANDORN. The deceased could live in the town Berka / Werra.

Because of missing of the old cemetery documentation I have no
idea about the identity of the man, who died during World War I.
Maybe this man died later, because the tombstones were set up
again in the 1960s years.

I am looking for anybody who could help me to find the real identity of
ANDORN / ANDRON and to help to come in contact with to related.

All advice and information are very welcome.
Thank you very much in advance!

Bank Fees - correspondence with Plock Archives #general

Marilyn Silva <marilynsilva32@...>
 

Genners,

I previously sent an email to the Plock Archives requesting the full cost of
acquiring a copy of a birth document. The reply (for which I used Google
Translate) gave me the cost for scans depending on the size dpi that I may want.
Then the reply states to "Please take account of the above deposit handling
fees charged by banks for currency conversion amount sent." I find the only cost
in the letter is for the price of the scan.

They also request "title of payment and initials of the person carrying out the
order". I don't understand what is meant by title of payment. Hopefully one of
you genners that has had much experience with this sort of thing can help me to
understand what is meant by the above statements, and how I can find out the
cost of the additional fees. I don't believe there is a postage fee as the
letter states that when they get paid they will sent the document to my email
address.

Thank you all in advance

ViewMate Translation Request--German #germany

Deborah Dworski
 

I was very excited to find some newly-posted records for my family in
the JRI-Poland database. While I am able to glean sufficient
information to identify my ancestors, I'd appreciate help in
understanding other details which may be useful. I believe that all
of the written information is in German.

Below are links to my gggp's delayed marriage record and the birth
records for two of their children:

Searching Irene HOFFMAN WEINBERGER and Georg WEINBERGER from Znaim, CZ #austria-czech

Jack R. Stokvis
 

My family has come to a dead end in learning the fate of two family
members who stayed behind in Czechoslovakia. We followed numerous,
received much assistance >from the USHMM and Prague Jewish Museum,
JewishGen and other sources, but have come to a dead end.

Here is what we know: The two individuals are Irene HOFFMAN WEINBERGER
(born 13 Apr 1889 in Budapest, Hungary) and her young son, Georg
WEINBERGER (born 22 Jan 1929 in Vienna, Austria) They lived prewar in
Znaim, Czechoslovakia (today Znojmo, Czech Republic.) Although many
family members escaped, Irene and Georg stayed in Czechoslovakia at
first with her boyfriend, a Czech soldier (unknown name.)

The USHMM, the Terezin Imitative researched their data cards that came
from the Federation of Jewish Communities in Prague. The registration
numbers were 44621 and 44613 with date 11 December 1941 are stamped
"Abg=D6=B3=E2=82=AAngig" meaning that they went into hiding, or wouldn't
answer the call to report to a transport.

Our last lead was >from GerSig@Jewishgen and learned that Georg had
survived as he had received Austrian compensation. We just sent an email
to the Austrian archive to learn more. We now nothing about the fate of
his mother. Any new leads or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

A cousin has applied for two Stolpersteines in front of their house on
Wilson Street (today Rudoleckeho) Znojmo to honor them.
This is where our research ends and we need advice, sources to follow
further and learn and hopefully learn what happened. Thank you.
