Seeking relationship between FINEs, PODNOS, RUBINs #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Louis Fine,

Have you tried searching the Canadian Jewish Review, an
archived newspaper out of Montreal, which usually had a Toronto
column? The archive spans 1921-1966. The URL is
http://multiculturalcanada.ca/mcc_cjr
I find it very valuable when looking for births, marriages & death of
my many MELNICK, LIBERMAN, AMSEL, et cetera, families.

Best, Steve Orlen Tucson Arizona

Surname WEIDEN #general

Wegner, Peter
 

Dear jewishgenners:

This message is addressed to anyone with family members surnamed
WEIDEN (but only if this was the original surname and is not simply
an abbreviation of Weidenbaum, Weidenfeld, etc.) I have a very
specific question. Do you know whether your WEIDEN ancestor or
relative was a Kohen, a Levi, or a Yisra'el?

My husband's father, Leo WEIDEN born in Tarnow, Poland, died when
my husband was only 4 years old; his mother died suddenly when he
was 16; and as they were very secular Jews, the question never arose
until it was too late to ask them. So now we want to find out, for
the benefit of of our sons and grandchildren, which of the three
"castes" they belong to.

If anyone can help us on this point, we'd be very much obliged.

Sincerely,

Judith Romney Wegner (jrw@brown.edu)

Holocaust Era Assets Conference, June 2009 #general

Dana Dimitriu
 

Hello everybody,

not sure if this is already common knowledge - if it is, please excuse
me for repeating it.

I thought perhaps some of you would be interested to know that there
was a conference on Holocaust Era Assets in June, which might provide
some useful information or at least contacts regarding various aspects
of claims, especially in Eastern Europe.

http://www.holocausteraassets.eu/

[ I stumbled over it while trying to find information about claims in
the Czech Republic and if there were still active initiatives trying to
obtain re-opening of the deadline for claims for property. I understand
this was requested at least once in Parliament but was rejected at the
time.]

Kind regards,

Dana

Bronx obituaries 1980s #general

First, check out and contact The Bronx Historical Society:

http://www.bronxhistoricalsociety.org/archives.html

The Bronx Home News, which started in 1907, eventually merged
into the New York Post in 1948. It became a special section of the
NY Post, sold only in the Bronx, and eventually disappeared, but
I'm not sure when.

INTRO - researching HELLER, MANDELBAUM family from Dennenlohe, Bavaria #germany

Chuck Koplik
 

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for two years.
I consider myself to be a novice in doing German Jewish Genealogy research.
I live in suburban Lexington, Massachusetts, USA. My native language is English.
I consider myself expert in using a computer. My experience in using the Internet
is extensive.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of 4 of my
grandparents, 8 of my great grandparents and 16 of my great great grandparents.
My primary research goals now are to find out my familiy history on
my father's mother's side in Germany.

The family names and towns that I am researching are:
HELLER, MANDELBAUM, SILBERLOSS, LEHMAN - Dennenlohe, Bavaria (near
Wassertrudingen).

My ggg grandfather and grandmother were Isaac Kallman HELLER
(b. Jan 7, 1780, d. 29 Dec 1857 in New Haven, Connecticut) and

Leah MANDELBAUM (b. 1791, d. ??) both of Dennenlohe;
and my ggg grandfather and grandmother Hirsch SILBERLOSS/LEHMAN and
Sarah also of Dennenlohe.

I am seeking birth, marriage, death records for Jewish residents at that
time in Dennenlohe. I do have the Jewish Registers for 1813-1861 for Middle
Franconia.

STERN - Nackenheim (or Nachenheim), Hesse-Darmstadt. My gg
grandfather Nathan STERN was born in Nackenheim in 1801 (died
1846). Nathan was married to Magdeline Falker (b. 1809 in Mussbach,
d. 25 May 1859 in NYC). Nathan's father Samuel STERN was born in
Holland July 3, 1760 (died in Darmstadt, 25 May 1859, remains at
Dalsheim). I am looking for any information on the Stern family in Nackenheim.

PACHTER from Warsaw #france

tina levine
 

Dear Genners

A few months ago I discovered what I believe to be the grave of a first cousin
of my great grandfather at the online database of the Warsaw Jewish Cemetery.
The deceased's name was Yosef PACHTER, son of Avraham. He died in 1927 at the
age of 75 and was >from Siemiatycze. (my great great grandfather was Yisroel
PACHTER; he had a brother named Avraham Yitzhak and the family was >from
Siemiatycze) .

At the moment I am searching for his descendants, if any do exist. I have no
idea if children/grandchildren survived the war or if they left before 1939
and went to Israel, Western Europe, the USA, or Central and South America.

If any readers know anyone with the family name Pachter who came >from Warsaw
please have them get in touch with me.

Any suggestions re: surviving records that might exist in Warsaw and could
shed more light on this man or his offspring would be greatly appreciated as
well. thank you in advance for your assistance.
