Galicia family records #galicia

Hello,

I was wondering, on average, how far back in time do most Galicia
researchers have their families reconstructed?

In my experience >from Hungarian research it is not uncommon to have
proof of ancestors born in 1790.

Seeking Information on Frederichshof! #germany

Jeni ArmandezZiara <jeni.armandez@...>
 

Hello Fellow Genners! I am pleased to say that I have been slowly making my way
through my mum's paternal side. I found that my great-great grandmother,
Caroline KELLER nee CONRAD was born in 1830 in a village called Friederichshof,
Prussia, supposedly not far >from Berlin.

I am not positive on my spelling of this village and very little information
comes up when I try to search for Frederichshof. Does anyone know anything
about it? Caroline had a total of 12 children with Isaac KELLER. They later
moved to London where Caroline passed away at the ripe age of 101 in 1931.
She is buried at Edmonton Cemetery in England.

I have only been able to access the Naturalisation papers for Jules KELLER
(one of the sons) so I have no further information. These papers did state
that both Caroline and Isaac were both former subjects of the Empire of Germany.
One thing to note is that Caroline was well educated for her time. Before coming
to England, she spoke German, Polish, Russian and Hebrew. Perhaps I am too quick
in making an assumption that her family was not poor. I know when the family
moved to England, they were not.

I am most grateful for anyone's information on this area. Please respond
privately unless you think your info would be of value to the group.

Thank you, Jeni Armandez Los Angeles, CA <jeni.armandez@...>

Dear Genners,

I am trying to understand something about my great grandmother's tombstone. The
first line reads: he aleph shin het het tzadik lamed vav ayin chet
I think that it means, the woman, the Soloveitch. Am I right? the second line is
her name, Sheina, the third line reads bat reb Yacov Meir

Can anyone help me with this?

Thank you in advance.

Joyce Field
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce an update to its burial registry,
JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR). Approximately
50,000 burial records and 25,000 new photos of matzevot have been
added. At
<http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm> there
is a complete listing of the 2,033 cemeteries and plots in the
searchable database, comprising 1,074,427 records.

Noteworty additions to the database are:

-Basavilbaso, Argentina: 1,653 records
-Iasi, Romania: 18,000 new records
-Petach Tikvah/Segulah Cemetery, Israel: 2,900 additional records and
6,100 photos
-Toronto, Canada: updates and additions of photos to 60 Toronto cemeteries
-Southwest and Midwest U.S. cemeteries: 4,700 new records and 8,700 photos
-Pennsylvania cemeteries: 4,700 new records

The searchable database contains over 432,000 records for the United

Romania,over 106,000 records for Israel, over 29,000 records foe
