Rodney Eisfelder, Melbourne Australia, wrote me in response that the
Exilpresse Digital collection of German National Library (Deutsche National
Bibliothek) has at least seven Shanghai newspapers-some different and some
the same as listed in the Ancestor Hunt article.
The Shanghai newspapers included in the German National Library collection
are:
"Acht-Uhr-Abendblatt", "Gelbe Post", "Gemeindeblatt der Judischen Gemeinde
Shanghai", "The Jewish Voice of the far East", "Shanghai Jewish Chronicle",
"Shanghai Echo" and "Die Tribune".

To access these papers go to:
http://www.dnb.de/DE/DEA/Kataloge/Exilpresse/exilpresse_node.html There is
an option for English at the top of the page. The best way to access the
above mentioned- newspapers on the English page is to place the title of the
newspaper into the search field. Note that some of the newspapers are in
German while others are in English.

Ancestor Hunt has published World War ll era Shanghai newspapers online.
Shanghai became a haven for fleeing Jews during World War ll because of
their lenient visa requirements and they accepted thousands of Jewish
refugees.

While the Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum built a database that contained the
name, occupation and address for many of the refugees, that database is no

How are there two sisters given the same names?
1 st Hani, my GG Grandmother b. May 6, 1866, d. August 3, 1905 I have
her official death record
2 nd Hani b. Mar. 16, 1869, M. Nov. 5 1898
I have her marriage record.
I think you have to consider that there was only one Hani, and whether
one of their birth records was mistranscribed. When making a decision
between a badly-written 'March' and 'May' guesswork could be involved,
and I note that you don't have two parallel certificates for any of the
two Hanis' life events.

Ricardo IMMERWAHR -- Berlin and Rio de Janeiro #latinamerica

Stephen Falk <sfalkjd@...>
 

I am looking for information on my mother's second cousin Richard
Hermann Otto IMMERWAHR who was born in Berlin on 14 October 1904. It
appears that he emigrated in about 1937 and settled in Rio de Janeiro.
In Brazil, he was known as Richardo German Otto IMMERWAHR. >from a
later passenger list, it is clear that Richard / Ricardo was still
alive in 1957.

I have found a few references online >from Brazilian published records.

I do not know if he was still affiliated with the Jewish community
when he lived in Brazil.

I have not been able to determine whether Richard / Ricardo was ever
married or had children; I guess he did not, but I do not know. And I
have not been able to learn when he died.

All the best,

Progress on Bessarabia Cemetery projects, October, 2018 #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear Bessarabers,

I am glad that at this year conference we invited our researcher and
photographer Serghei Daniliuk. Many people met him and heard him talking
about cemetery projects, and a town, used to be a Jewish shteitle Serghei
lives now.

It might be now we will slow the projects, because Sergei is now studying in
the University, but still he will work on a number of our projects this
year.

Here is a progress as of now:

- Nisporeni Jewish Cemetery - photographing is done, and now the
translation/transcribing is in progress. Hopefully we will finish it by the
end of the year.

- Bricheni Jewish Cemetery. We are doing a Phase 2 - Clearing paths, and
cleaning with photographing. Half of the job was done. We have received
about 750 photos of graves, did not have before. There is going to be a
second trip to Brichany to finish this work, and after that we will do the
translation.

- Vadul Rashkov, Phase 1 was completed and 862 burial records are available,
plus 454 Unknown graves at our website. Phase 2 photographing is done, and
now it is in process of "second" reading, and October-November it will be
ready and submitted to JOWBR

- Kishinev Jewish Cemetery. So far one sector of the cemetery was
completed, and is available at JOWBR. I got a promise >from another person,
who did part of cemetery to finish 3 more sectors this year... I will let
you know when the images will arrive

- Beltsy Jewish Cemetery. Also another group is photographing the cemetery
by sectors, and hopefully by the end of the year they will give us another
1,000-1,500 images.

- Reni Jewish Cemetery. I hope that Serghei D. will have a day to go to
that cemetery and photograph all. The cemetery is not very big.

- I also got a list of Jews >from Bessarabia who were buried in Brazil
(cemiterio israelita de Vila Mariana). The list has about 300-400 names and
Jews were >from Ataki, Brichevo, Brichany, Beltsy, Soroki, Teleneshty,
Yedinets, Sekuryany, etc. Unfortunately there are no dates in the list...
only names and towns they were from. I will work with JOWBR and see what we
can do here.

This is all for now.

Please let me know if you have any questions, issues.

Thanks again,

Ethnicity analysis discrepancy #dna

Arlene Beare
 

I would appreciate your opinion. I manage 9 accounts on FTDNA and uploaded
the raw data to MyHeritage. One of the uploads revealed a completely
different Ethnicity >from FTDNA. They assured me they use different SNP's and
this could account for the difference. However all the other results are
nearly the same as FTDNA. I deleted the upload and reuploaded and the
result was the same.

Please explain the difference in this result.

FTDNA ---Ethnicity was Jewish Diaspora 92% No Sephardi. Eastern Europe <2%
European 4% Scandinavian < 1% Middle Eastern 5%

My Heritage---Ashkenazi 76.6% Sephardi 3.8% Italian 19.6%

Dear Colleagues,

Recently discovered that my great grandmothers maiden name was Furst (umlaut on â?˜uâ??). Are there any Fursts researching this family surname? I believe the general vicinity would be Austro-Hungarian empire or Moravia. Thank you very much.
