Jewish Families of Vienna #austria-czech

E. Randol Schoenberg
 

I have set up a project of Geni to link to the families in Georg
Gaugusch's new book Wer einmal War (Volume I: A-K). See
http://www.geni.com/projects/Jewish-Families-of-Vienna . Some of the
families are already more or less complete on Geni, others still need to
be entered or completed. Georg's book contains an enormous amount of
information that is not on Geni (including biographical data,
professions, residence addresses, causes of death, witnesses at
weddings, etc), but Geni's format also allows you to see photos and
documents, as well as follow the links easily >from family to family. So
both are quite useful. The publication of Georg's magnum opus is a huge
event for us and I hope it will help spur more interest and activity
among our members.

Walter SIMON, Kaufmann, Duesseldorf #germany

Dick Plotz <Dick@...>
 

Walter SIMON, Kaufmann, of Geibelstr.19, Duesseldorf, was a witness at
the death of his grandmother Auguste MEYER geb. SALOMON in Aachen in
1937. Walter SIMON appears in the Duesseldorf telephone book for 1938.
He is not listed in the Yad Vashem database. He may have been a son of
Auguste MEYER's daughter Anna Rika, who was born in 1874 and who was
still alive in 1939 but about whom I have no further information.

The Duesseldorf Mahn- und Gedenkstaette has no further information
about Walter SIMON. I would be grateful for any additional information
about him or other family members. A letter sent around the time of
Auguste's death mentions "Hedi, Emmy und Kleire L." who may have been
relatives, possibly Walter's sisters.

I encountered a strange entry in 1858-1887 Salakas family lists - Sholom
KORB, son of Shlioma KORB; both father and son living. Can he be his
biological son? I've always considered them to be two forms of the same
Hebrew name Solomon.

I suggest you try writing to Symcha Keller in Lodz:

Finally, there are researchers in Lodz who can go to the cemetery office

Does anyone have any Isaac WACHS references in the mid-late 1800s,
particularly one with a daughter Chana who married Chaskel Silberman?

These would likely be in (or from) the Tarnopol area.

seeking photo and information about a doctor in Lvov #galicia

Dani Inbar
 

I hope it is the right place to ask those three questions:

Dr. Solomon Ringler and his wife Solomea lived and study medicine
in the national university of Lvov. Dr. Ringler was born in 1896 and
was murdered in Ghetto Lvov in 1939-40.

After years of searching including the assistance of a local
genealogist we managed to get his diploma and other important
documents.

His daughter Dr. Halina Dubnov is interested mostly in getting
his photograph. Here is the question:

1. On what occasions in the life of a doctor of medicine with such
profile and in those years (1890-1940) in Lvov, would he have had
to give his photo to be registered or to be accepted or to participate
in one or another institute? If we will know those occasions and
institutions, we can apply and try to ask for a photo he gave them.

2. According to his age, we believe that in WW1 he was about 20
years old and maybe was drafted to serve in the army. Does
someone know if there is a list of Jews who were taken to WW1?

3. We want to check the possibility that Dr. Ringler was a physician
in the famous Jewish hospital named after Jacob Rappoport in Lvov.
Are there any lists left of physicians who worked in this hospital?

We will appreciate it very much if you will publish our questions.

Thank you in advance.

How to obtain the records indexed on JRI record for Lodz Cemetery #poland

Hello,
I posted a message inquiring about this some months ago (in the JRI-
Poland list only), but did not get any significant lead (someone gave
me an e-mail address to write to, in Poland, I did so but did not get
a response - or perhaps did, and it stated that they were not the ones
to help - I do not remember.)

What I want to know is:
what is one supposed to do next - after finding matching results in
JRI-Poland when searching for records >from Lodz - these records being
indexes >from Lodz's cemetery? The entries all have a JPG file they refer
to - are these the grave photographs? How can I reach them? Are they
property of JRI-Poland and are free to the open public? Or do I have to
order these files via the Lodz Cemetery institution using an order form?

Below some of the records I am interested in:
