Hamburg Amerika Line #general

D. Franco
 

Please help

I'm trying to find a passenger list for the ship or ships that departed from
Hamburg to New York on 10 June 1881. I have this date of the departure for one of
my relatives (Ephraim Silverman) probably "Americanized name" and I'm trying to
find the name on German passenger list before he got to the American port.

Many years later he applied for a passport and gave that date for his initial
immigration to America but gave the name of a ship that wasn't built until later
(President Grant built in 1903).

Just a shot in the dark but maybe I'll get lucky

Heinrich SCHWARZ from Munich #germany

Oliver Bryk <oliverbryk@...>
 

I am looking for information about Heinrich SCHWARZ, born 22 September 1871,
a son of my great grandfather Samuel SCHWARZ.

The only source about Heinrich's existence known to me so far are the pages
about his brothers Hermann and Felix SCHWARZ in the "Gedenkbuch der
Muenchner Juden".

I will be grateful for data or suggestions regarding Heinrich SCHWARZ.

Shalom,

I do hope those who attended the recent IAJGS conference left it with
renewed energy and motivation to continue your genealogical research.
Of course, if your research leads you to the realm of Yizkor Books,
I am here to help and direct you.

Meanwhile, the Yizkor Book Project continues to hold a wealth of
genealogical and historical information and to improve access to this
precious data, we recently initiated something called the Yizkor Book Master
Name Index (YBMNI) Project. The aim of this project is to collect all the
names appearing in the Yizkor Book translations (apart >from necrologies),
to organize them into a database through which researchers can seek out
names and be directed to the online translated pages themselves.

We have been very fortunate in that Osnat Hazan has agreed to be the YBMNI
Project Manager and together with a small group of volunteers, has begun
the enormous task of collecting and organizing this data. The YBMNI is
located at: http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Yizkor/Names/

If you have a good understanding of Excel, are methodical, have time
available and would like to assist in this groundbreaking project,
please contact Osnat via the link appearing on the main YBMNI page.

Shalom,

I do hope those who attended the recent IAJGS conference left it with
renewed energy and motivation to continue your genealogical research.
Of course, if your research leads you to the realm of Yizkor Books,
I am here to help and direct you.

Meanwhile, the Yizkor Book Project continues to hold a wealth of
genealogical and historical information and to improve access to this
precious data, we recently initiated something called the Yizkor Book Master
Name Index (YBMNI) Project. The aim of this project is to collect all the
names appearing in the Yizkor Book translations (apart >from necrologies),
to organize them into a database through which researchers can seek out
names and be directed to the online translated pages themselves.

We have been very fortunate in that Osnat Hazan has agreed to be the YBMNI
Project Manager and together with a small group of volunteers, has begun
the enormous task of collecting and organizing this data. The YBMNI is
located at: http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Yizkor/Names/

If you have a good understanding of Excel, are methodical, have time
available and would like to assist in this groundbreaking project,
please contact Osnat via the link appearing on the main YBMNI page.

treasure hunts; Tomaszow Mazowiecki Ghetto #lodz #poland

Debbie Long <d_long@...>
 

Thank you to my colleagues who offered sympathy and suggestions re: my
question about pre-war belongings that could be a hidden treasure
somewhere in Lodz. I am following up on a suggestion to contact
Jaroslaw Nowak, the advisor on Jewish affairs to the Lodz Mayor. I'll
let you know what I discover.

I have another question: I have a Tomaszow Mazowiecki Ghetto list >from
January, 1940-May, 1943, which lists my grandparents and their date of
death as 1942. But I know for a fact that they died in Auschwitz in
August, 1944. (My mother was deported with them.) My mother never
indicated that her parents were any place other than the Lodz Ghetto
with her >from 1940-1944.

This is not a case of identity confusion on this Tomaszow list
either--my grandparents names' and dates of birth are accurately listed
on the Ghetto document Any one have a good theory about why my
grandparents would be on this list? Were people taken >from the Lodz
Ghetto to the Tomaszow Ghetto?

Thanks for your help.

KINSLER/KINCLER - KITTY #france

Ann Linder
 

The KINSLER search as it pertains to KITTY KINSLER is concluded
successfully. As we are encouraged to share research methods, here
goes:

What I knew: Kitty and her son & husband were deported >from France to
Auschwitz. I kinda knew/thought that Kitty was a Kinsler/Kincler but
I did not know her married name.

I searched for hours each & every female record available that had a
maiden name at the website of Memorial de la Shoah & could not find
Kitty--because the lists are incomplete and I also did not know that
she went by the name of Maya! I posted on French SIG and Eve - that
amazing & wonderful & extremely persistent researcher--actually found
her--merci beaucoup--confirming that Kitty was a Kinsler. Maya (aka
Kitty) & her 2 young boys were deported in 1943. And >from the
deportation records, I had Kitty's married name, Dawidowicz. Yad
Vashem testimonials were another source but her maiden name did not
match on the testimonial.

Using JewishGen Family Finder, JGFF, I then wrote to 15 genners who
had listed the family name of Dawidowicz. Via one great
Dawidowicz-connected Brit, Martin, I was able to definitively
determine that Maya (aka Kitty) Davidowicz nee Kinsler is the Kitty I
was looking for. I'm still not sure how she fits into the Kinsler
family however, and may never know.

Martin kindly sent me 2 photos of Kitty. You have no idea how
thrilled those photos have made Kitty's 86 year old cousin in New
Jersey USA. She is very happy indeed as the last time she saw Kitty's
face was in 1938 at a family wedding in UK.

My KINSLER search for living descendants continues onward.

Kudos to the LA team #lithuania

Marlene Bishow <mlbishow@...>
 

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington(JGSGW) extends its
sincere appreciation and admiration to its sister society, the Jewish
Genealogical Society of Los Angeles (JGSLA) for a conference well done.
Sandy Malek, Lois Rubin and Pamela Weisberger are congratulated for the
mammoth effort in putting on the 30th IAJGS Conference on Jewish Genealogy.
I also wish to acknowledge with gratitude the guidance of IAJGS's Past
President Hal Bookbinder in the effort.

The JGSGW co-chairs for the 31st IAJGS Conference in 2011 have worked
closely with the LA conference committee since the beginning of our mutual
efforts and we know >from personal experience how much dedication and how
much planning went into the execution of the LA conference. Our conferences
will be quite different due to the nature of the resources in the city where
the conference will be held, but despite these differences, we always knew
that we had JGSLA watching our back and it was great to have folks to talk
to who were going through the same decision making processes.

On a personal note, I had a great time in LA and extend a big thank you to
all of the Genners who came to our table with their suggestions and ideas
for DC2011. I have come to know so many of you >from conferences that I feel
more like I have come back >from a family reunion. And to the more than
thirty JGSGW members who went to the conference in LA, I thank you too! You
are fantastic.

See you in Washington, DC next August when the family gets together
again......

Yizkor Book Project, July 2010 #lithuania

Shalom,

I do hope those who attended the recent IAJGS conference left it with
renewed energy and motivation to continue your genealogical research.
Of course, if your research leads you to the realm of Yizkor Books,
I am here to help and direct you.

Meanwhile, the Yizkor Book Project continues to hold a wealth of
genealogical and historical information and to improve access to this
precious data, we recently initiated something called the Yizkor Book Master
Name Index (YBMNI) Project. The aim of this project is to collect all the
names appearing in the Yizkor Book translations (apart >from necrologies),
to organize them into a database through which researchers can seek out
names and be directed to the online translated pages themselves.

We have been very fortunate in that Osnat Hazan has agreed to be the YBMNI
Project Manager and together with a small group of volunteers, has begun
the enormous task of collecting and organizing this data. The YBMNI is
located at: http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Yizkor/Names/

If you have a good understanding of Excel, are methodical, have time
available and would like to assist in this groundbreaking project,
please contact Osnat via the link appearing on the main YBMNI page.
