Seek Meyer GATTMAN(N)- Most likely b. ca. 1820 in Schwanfeld, Bavaria #germany

Judith Berlowitz <judigenie@...>
 

Dear Ger-Siggers,
After a multi-year hiatus, I've renewed my search for
my ggrandfather, Meyer GATTMAN(N). Most likely born
around 1820 in Schwanfeld, Bavaria, Meyer and his
wife, Regina Gutmann Schmalbach, moved to Budapest,
probably around 1847, were married there around 1850,
and their 4 children, Anna, Julius, Clara, and
Heinrich (my grandfather),were born there. I have no
information for Anna, but the rest of them came to the
US in 1881. Meyer reportedly returned to Budapest, where he died.

This is the information I am seeking:
Who were Meyer's parents? There is a reported
brother, Felix. There are many other Gattmanns in
Schwanfeld, but I find no record of Meyer (Meier, Mejer, etc.)

I will be grateful for any clues.

Fw: FHL Film 1184446 for Pyritz and SPANDOW #germany

Jan Bousse <janbousse@...>
 

Some of you will remember that last december (8 Dec. 2005) I enquired about
finding data in Pyritz, specifically on a SPANDOW marriage and more in particular
on Rebecca SPANDOW. One source was given as the film 1184446, where Items 7-8
deal with Pyritz. I consulted that film a week ago and I thought it might be
useful for the list to hear what I encountered.

Item 7 is the Einwohnerliste ca. 18-?. The indication of the year is of
course puzzling. I saw there that this item was indicated as "unbrauchbar".
It quickly appeared why. Large parts are over-exposed and entirely blank,
others are in Hebrew, some parts in German but then the sequence in the film
is often reversed, making reading quite difficult. And the exact date of the
list did not appear clearly.

Item 8 is indeed a list of persons, apparently taken in 1853, although I
have not seen that date clearly mentioned, perhaps it escaped me. The list
is clear but rather minimal. I was fortunate to find a person who may be the
one I am looking for:

42 Witwe Spandau 63
Tochter Minna 25

The person I am trying to identify would have been born in 1788, the age is
close enough. Unfortunately, there is no initial or first name, no maiden
name either. I had been given some time before >from Lars Menk the mention in
the Berliner Adresbücher 1825-1900 of:

R. SPANDOW geb. LEWIN, 1872-73; Rentiere; Fennstr. 1b. Pt.

I would be very interested to find who R. Spandow is and if she correponds
to the Witwe Spandau >from Pyritz. I asked Weissensee cemetery if she is
buried there, they said she isn't. I also enquired for details at the
Centrum Judaicum in Berlin, waiting for an answer >from them. Meanwhile I am
wondering if there is a way to find the death of R SPANDOW geb. LEWIN. I
understand that civil records were instituted in Prussia in 1874. Is there a
chance to find that death if it occurred in or after 1874? Can someone point
me to the Bezirk for Rennstrasse?

Another road I would like to follow is the daughter Minna, born around 1828,
possibly in Pyritz. Any idea how I could do that? The difficulty would be to
know if she married, when, where, and where she died. Sounds hopeless.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I'd like to thank everyone who responded! The suggestion to post on
soc.genealogy.benelux yielded scans of the HART family's entries in the
residence lists that were kept in the Netherlands at the time, thanks to a
generous person on that newsgroup who further posted my query on a Dutch
newsgroup.

The family returned in 1912, moved to Berlin 1929-1937, when they all
returned to Rotterdam.

Thanks again!

Russian Surname of: BADEN #general

Sean Silver <sean_silver@...>
 

Since there’s no Russian-specific sig, I figure I’d post this in the general
forum:

My grandmother Sarah's maiden name was BADEN. She was born in Pennsylvania
in 1907 and had 4 brothers, Joseph, Henry, Albert and Manny (Manuel). Her
parents' names were Abraham (Abe, Abram) and Rose BADEN. Abe was born in
Russia in 1880-1884 and I _believe_ came over, along with his mother, Taube,
via the ship named Wisconsin, while sailed >from Liverpool to New York.

Sarah married Martin Silver, my grandfather.

Any help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated! Here's hoping
we've some luck narrowing our search down!

Sincerely,
Sean Silver

1946 Poznan business directory - SITE CITE #germany

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

A small 1946 directory for Poznan listing some businesses and their
proprietors is now available online at the Digital Library of Wielkopolska:

www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=28793

Because the business listings are organized first according to business type
and then alphabetically by surname, it is not trivial to search the directory for
particular surnames of interest. The business listings are also not
separately indexed by street address.

Therefore, I have made this directory searchable at www.kalter.org/search
(scroll down to the bottom).

I do not know whether any Jews are listed. Please let me know if you find it
useful.

The result of a search is a list of numbers referencing images on the
Digital Library website that contain matches to your search term. The FAQ
on my search site describes how to view the images that interest you.
Please also read the description of the various search methods at the top of
the search page. Best regards,

ViewMate VM7678 Memorial Obelisk in Kuniv, Ukraine #general

This past September, 2005, I visited my mother's shtetl of Kuniv in Volhynia,
Ukraine, not far >from the much better-known town of Ostrog. Before World
War II, about 2,000 Jews lived in Kuniv, its Ukrainian name. In Russian, it's
Kunev, pronounced KOON-yev.
No Jews live there today, and the present inhabitants know nothing of the
community's fate. Can anyone translate this hand-carved monument in
Russian, which may offer a clue? It's ViewMate file VM7678.
