of family members, but also original questionnaires filled out by emigres
who filed for support of the Kehilah and the Joint in 1939-1940.

Aida... I've always found that we family genealogists need to be
proactive to find our families.

First, I would suggest you register your surname on our Family Finder
(JGFF) so that folks can find you!! https://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/

Second, I'd suggest you email the other researchers who are looking
for SCHWAM >from Vienna...maybe one of them has more information.

Third... Query the discussion list archives for your surname and towns.

Fourth... Try Google for leads. You might begin with (Vienna + Jewish
+ Schwam) (Bolivia + Jewish) and if that doesn't yield good sources,
try different varieties of the queries.

Fifth... Try the Viennese records at www.genteam.at and Vienna

Re: KLAUSNER and GUMPERT HOLZ #germany

In response to Dan Oren's query on October 30th:

Heinrich KLAUSNER was born March 6, 1877 in Tarnow, then in Austria
(Galicia) and now in Poland, son of Jacob KLAUSNER and Mirjam born ETTINGER.
Kaete or Kaethe (e umlaut) HOLZ was born February 21, 1888 in Insterburg,
now Chernyakhovsk, daughter of Bernhard HOLZ and Hulda born FLATOW.
Heinrich and Kaete married in Berlin on December 30, 1913. They divorced
on July 8, 1920.
The marriage register records Kaete as the widow of one ZEIMANN.
It can be inferred that she married a Mr GUMPERT only some time after
her divorce >from Heinrich KLAUSNER. A Kaete KLAUSNER is still listed
in the 1932 Berlin address book, so it may be that she remarried only
in or after 1932.

Heinrich had previously been all too briefly married to Else HEYSEMANN,
born February 19, 1887 in Flatow, daughter of Pinkus HEISEMANN and Emma
born LEVY of Flatow. They married in Berlin on August 16, 1910.
Else died on February 4, 1912 in Berlin.
Heinrich and Else's daughter Emmi was born January 2 1912 in Berlin
and lived for only a few hours.

(Source: ancestry.de. More details of the Klausner family of Tarnow,
including photos of Heinrich's parents, are on a family tree on
MyHeritage.com managed by one Regina Katz.)

The Rawa Ruska Yizkor (Memorial) Book has been translated #general

roe kard
 

Jack BERGER has now completed the translation of the Rawa Ruska Yizkor Book
(Memorial Book); it is his fifteenth Yizkor Book translation. Yizkor books are the
books that Survivors and Emigres >from a town compiled to memorialize their town.
The Rawa book is 700+ pages long and includes the history of the town, stories
about the town and the relations between the Hasidim and those who broke away,
stories about people >from the town, a lot about the 1930s, the time before
the Holocaust, the Holocaust and post Holocaust. It also has a section on Magierow.
It is profound and includes citations of many, many Rawa Ruska families.

For personal reasons, Jack chooses to do his translations on a voluntary basis and
outside of the aegis of JewishGen. Hence, the book will not be available online at
JewishGens website or any other website and only a few will be available to the
general public in the libraries to which people donate copies.

He expects to be going to print on November 7th, 2017. It will then take about 8
weeks for the books to be printed and shipped to him and then about 2 weeks for him
to mail them all out. He will be printing only as many copies as have been ordered.

If you are interested in purchasing copies please send me a note and I will forward
it to Jack. JewishGen rules preclude me >from including his contact information in
this message. And, i am always happy to answer any questions i can:

Trying to help a Righteous Gentile, need information #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

I am trying to help a Dutch family who needs proof for their grandparents to be
named a "Righteous Gentile" at Yad Vashem. Perhaps you have heard of these people
or can ask anyone born in this Dutch/German area if they remember anything at all.

Tjeerd BOSKLOPPER and his wife, Riek DOVIANUS were responsible for saving untold
Jewish babies and children. The children they saved were brought to Christian
families in Eibergen and neighboring villages.

The two of them lived with Tjeerd's mother at the Groenloseweg in Eibergen, the
Netherlands. Eibergen is in the Netherlands, close to the German border.

Tjeerd BOSKLOPPER also used the name Theo SCHIMMEL or SCHIMMELPENNIK as an
alias. Most likely he used the simple Theo SCHIMMEL.

This family hid Jews in their attic and a Russian soldier in their basement. Of
course, neither knew about the other!

There are other family members who have already been named "Righteous Gentiles" and
we are hoping to get Tjeerd and Riek added to the list at Yad Vashem.

The individual who contacted me also has someone at Yad Vashem trying to research
and help out.

If you can do a mitzvah, please do!

Re: Zoss family from Russia #general

Joseph Fibel
 

Dear Paul,

In the first place, not all Ships Manifests survived.. The lost ones
are just gone.

I would take the 1904 date as preferable since it was closest to his
actual arrival..The Morton-Allen of ship's arrivals, lists The Red Star
Line as the only one servicing Antwerp/New York,. There were roughly
ship 50 arrivals in NY and additional to Philly .

I had a similar experience with my wife's maternal grandmother. Her
name here was Minnie but she born Minne Rivl. . Somebody suggested that
I I try different variations of the letters of the name or the sound
of it. I found it but it took several days. Then,searching thru Steven Morse's
EIDB try a different combination, keeping track all along.. Then try it with
using only the surname, etc.

I notice that you do not mention Death, Marriage, or Birth
Certificates.. These are very important tools for genealogists.I
suggest that you get the death certificates of
those whose death dates you are unsure about, Nathan's first.. You
don't have to do it all at once. I also don't think you should worry
about differences in the name spelling. People change their names all the time and
when you move to a different country, the language often changes with different
pronunciations of words..

Although you don't say where you live, you may be in a location near
one of the many Jewish Genealogical Societies dotting the country.
where some are having similar problems and others, more advanced ,help untie the
knots. I hope that you have posted all your surnames and localities to the JGFF .
This is an awesome tool.

Another suggestion is for you to subscribe to Gersig on Jewish
gen.org, and look for your your communities on the Kehilllah (community) Links.

Good luck!

I''ll see you on Germansig.
