I don't know about the other things, but ul. Fredry is undoubtedly an
address. There is an ulica Fredry (and sometimes statues) in many cities in Poland.
Fredry was a well-known poet.

Records of Sponsors for World War II immigrants to USA #germany

Alice Josephs
 

I have been told that a German relative of mine, Klara OPPENHEIMER born
HERZ (1875 Kochendorf, Baden Wuerttemberg - ? USA) and her husband wine
merchant Bernhard OPPENHEIMER (1872 Niederflorstadt, Hesse - 1958 New
York City) were sponsored by a member of the KLEINERT family, who was
part of the KLEINERT clothes and underwear manufacturing company, to
come to the USA in 1940.

I have also been told that the KLEINERT family were somehow related to
Klara OPPENHEIMER born HERZ. I have made contact with a member of the
KLEINERT family but we have yet to find out who, if any member of the
family, was involved in the sponsorship and where the connection may be.

However, it occurs to me there may be one way of cutting short some
long-winded investigations. Surely there are records in archives
somewhere of sponsors? Can anyone make any suggestions?

MODERATOR NOTE: In order to obtain a visa, immigrants to the USA were required
to obtain an AFFIDAVIT of SUPPORT >from an American Citizen who could show that
he had the means to assume financial responsibility for the immigrant if needed
and was willing to do so.

Records of such affidavits have been discussed in this Forum before. I don't have
time now to check the Archives but I believe that copies of the affidavits
were held by local governments, not the US Federal Government. MOD1

INFO: Military Records Destroyed in Fire #general

Joan Parker <housemom@...>
 

Dear Genners:

from time to time there have been queries about military records and most folks
know about the fire. There was an article in today's Miami Herald.

As most of you know, July 12, 1973 about 80 percent of the ARMY records for
personnel discharged between November 1, 1912 and January 1, 1960 were destroyed.
Air Force veterans with names >from "Hubbard" to names beginning with "Z" with
discharge dates between September 25, 1947 and January 1, 1964 were also destroyed.

According to the article records can be reconstructed. Contact:
National Personnel Records Center
Military Personnel Records
9700 Page Boulevard
St. Louis MO 63132-5100

If you need records destroyed in the fire, include as much info as you can such as:
full name during military service, place of entry into service, branch of service,
last assigned unit, approximate dates of service, where discharged, service number
or social security number.

Locating someone in the US Army #general

Hi.
I've just uncovered a new branch of my family and I've learned that a
distant cousin is possibly serving as an MP in the US Army. I don't have a
clue where she's stationed. Would anyone happen to know how to go about
trying to find her?

Thanks for your help.
Wishing all Genners a fruitful search in the New Year!

Re: Charles Stanton Papers #germany

Frank Mecklenburg <fmecklenburg@...>
 

P.S. since the papers are not yet available to the public,
they are NOT yet in the on-line catalogue.

Frank Mecklenburg

MODERATOR NOTE: Mr. Stanton and I discussed the donation of his vast Franconia
family tree collection years ago. At that time he said that many of the trees were
so old that the tape connecting joined pages and some of the pages themselves
needed to be replaced before the trees could be handled safely.

Those of you who have seen a Stanton tree will appreciate that his very personal
method of recording family data will make the restoration and reproduction of
that data difficult. It may be some time before Public access to the Stanton
charts can be permitted.

Is is possible that GerSig volunteers or funds could expedite the process?

Re: 1848 Census Rematk #hungary

Gábor Hirsch <hirsch@...>
 

Sorry comeing back again to the same subject. I made another effort and
even if not with NETSCAPE but with EXPLORERI was able to reach on
VIEWMATE the page to TO VIEW, for some reason VM3311 was not on the
page, I picked up another picture and got its URL changeing it to the
wanted VM3311 as bellow
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=3311 this
way I got even in NETSCAPE the image. Here again I have some comment, as
the image had the size of 2423 x 960 Pixels and 300 dpi and was rotated
90 grad, I had to load in graphic programm (IRFANVIEW) rotate it 90
grad, reduce it to a sensible size. My recomandation would be to deposit
inqueries in a practical size which can be viewed on the majority of the
monitors, around 800 x 600 pixel and give the complett URL for
comfortable finding.

Best regards

Hi, One more puzzler.

On the 1848 Census for Zala County I have encountered a remark that I
cannot quite make out.

It concerns children whose parents are not listed.

I have traced the remark and it can be found under Viewmate.

I can read as follows:

Szulei (gend?)viselet alatt
Parents under ? behavior/conduct

Any help would be appreciated.

The Viewmate Reference is VM3311.
Thanks

Re: 1848 Census Rematk #hungary

I could reach the VIEWMATE but not the sight TO VIEW, so I was unable to
find the referenced image. In many case I would prefer to give the
direct URL to the picture, it might shorten the time to navigate through
different pages to the one you are looking for. For the translation I
would guess that "Szulei (gend?)viselet alatt" could mean "szülei
gondnoksàg alatt", under guardian, administrator, trustee, this might
have different reason, illness, mental problems, unable to menage the
financial problems, neglect the child, the family etc.

Best regards
