Peter Lowe wrote

I recently came across some information on a Dr Helene LOWENHEIM and I
am seeking more details about her. In particular:
Names of her Parents ? Was she married ? When & where was she born ?
When & where did she die ? Was she Jewish ?

Her name appears
Any information, or suggestions would be wonderful
========================>>>

A search on Yad Vashem reveals that a Page of Testimony was submitted
regarding a Helene Lina LOEWENHEIM nee HOFMAN.
Born in Tuchel Poland in 1878, lived in Berlin prior and during the War.

There is also a reference to a list of murdered Jews >from Germany that
includes a Lisbeth Lea Helene LOEbENHEIM, nee PHILIPSON born
in Feldberg, Germany in 1876.
She lived in Berlin prior to the war, but was deported to Theresienstadt
where she died. This person is also mentioned in the
German Minority Census 1939.

Also in the German Minority Census is a Helene LOEWENHEIM nee JANSSEN
born in 1900 in Kniphausen, Friesland, Germany.

For your information. Regards

Resnikoff/Dickovsky offstpring. #ukraine

Milton Koch
 

I am researching the Dickovsky family >from Elisavetgrad, now Ukraine
(formerly Russia). I am aware of many members related to my wife, most
of whom settled in Washington, DC area.
However, I am most interested in locating any offspring of CHAJE Dickovsky,
who came to New York in the early 1900's to live with Emanuel Resnikoof
and his wife, Beatrice. They had 3 children-Sophie/Sylvia, Jack and
Eleanore (who may have changed her name to Reed >from Resnikoff).
Emanuel and Beatrice had a dressmaking shop in NYC named "Madam Beatrice".
I would appreciate any family links in the Dickovsky lineage.
Thank you.

Selma Sheridan
 

I have the SHORT form of the Birth Record of my cousin, Miriam ERLICHMAN,
born 7 Nov. 1936 in Lodz. There would be more detailed information on the
LONG form, but I have been unable to find a source in Poland that can help
me to find this document. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. You
may post your reply online, if the Moderator thinks it may be helpful to
other researchers. Thank you!

adopted daughter? #galicia

Milton Koch
 

I am trying to determine the details of a family story I have heard
about my paternal grandfather, Izak Koch, >from Jagielnica.

He reportedly was married to a woman that I know nothing about.
They had a daughter named Yenta. His wife died in childbirth.
Supposedly, the daughter, Yenta, was "adopted" or taken in by Izak's
sister, Rivka Koch and her husband, Lieb Weinreb. In addition, Yenta
may have subsequently been married and gave birth to a girl.

Izak then married my paternal grandmother, Feige Barbash. I do
know that part of my family. I do not know how to track this
information about Yenta and her family, as well as the family details.

Thank you.

Thank you Andreas. That makes it quite clear now. My grandfather, Wilhelm,
was living in Vienna, and he wrote his letter in German.

"uncle" and the Viet Namese equivalent is used to refer to any older

Re: “Onkel” and “Neffe” #germany

In German, “Onkel” is anybody >from the previous generation, and
“Neffe”anybody >from the next generation. So a second or
third cousin once removed would be an “Onkel” or a “Neffe”

https://heraldik-wiki.de/wiki/Verwandtschaftsbeziehung

This differs >from English usage, where uncles and nephew are always
closer than first cousins. It is very well possible that somebody >from a
German background would use the terms Uncle and Nephew according to the
German usage of “Onkel” and “Neffe”,
even when writing in English.
