IAJGS Salutes! Susan Edel #general

Nolan Altman
 

The "IAJGS Salutes! Committee" is pleased to announce that Susan Edel has
been awarded an IAJGS Salute! IAJGS Salutes! are designed to provide
recognition on an ongoing basis of noteworthy projects, activities and
accomplishments relating to Jewish genealogy at any time during the year in
addition to the annual IAJGS achievement awards. For more information,
please see http://www.iajgs.org/blog/awards/iajgs-salutes/

Susan Edel has worked tirelessly for the past decade reuniting families
separated during the Holocaust through her work as a volunteer for Magen
David Adom's Family Tracing and Reunification Unit, part
of the International Red Cross' International Tracing Service (ITS). To
help reunite families over the last decade, Susan made extensive use of the
Red Cross Archives in Geneva and the International Tracing Service in Bad
Arlosen, and has represented Magen David Adom internationally.

Susan has reunited many families including siblings that did not know each
other were still alive. In many cases, when living relatives were not found,
she has found documentation as to the fate of those family members.

Before Susan's volunteer work tracing families, Susan worked for the Magen
David Adom Ambulance Service saving lives. She has also volunteered with
several local genealogy organizations where she served in a variety of
positions. She currently serves on IGRA's Audit Committee. Susan continues
to help many people, both through the ITS and those who contact IGRA seeking
information on their families.

On behalf of Susan's tireless work helping to reunite families, the IAJGS
salutes you!

This points out the helpfulness your local Jewish Genealogy Society can
provide. If you are in need of a speaker on any topic related to genealogy,
whether it is an introduction for people who are not knowledgeable on the
subject, or a look at DNA or other advanced topic, many JGS's offer a
Speaker's Bureau with vetted presenters on a wide range of topics. If you
are the program chair for a synagogue, Jewish organization, library, or any
other group looking for a speaker on genealogy, Google to see if you have a
local society and contact them for speakers, price, and availability.

Holten, Germany ,GUMPERTZ family #germany

Lin Herz <lin2@...>
 

Dear GerSIGers,
I am looking for the official site for Holten, Germany
to find out more about some relatives. I have been unable to find the
"official" site for Holten.

I recently found a new fourth cousin living in
Australia. She descends >from my 2x great grandfather's sister,
Regina HERZ GUMPERTZ. MY newfound cousin, Inge WEISS
MARCOS's mother was Helene GUMPERTZ WEISS, born in Holten,
Oberhausen, North-Rhein-Westphalia. (Helene's father paid for the family
to go to Australia in the 1930s to flee Germany). I want to find out
more about the family.

One person I'm trying to find out more about is Gustav GUMPERTZ,
brother of Inge's father. I have found some evidence he died in
the United States possibly San Francisco or Ohio, but other evidence
that he died in Cologne. I thought perhaps Holten would have some
records of where he moved. He was born in 1851 and died in 1930.

Inge's partner is the one who did most of the family genealogy.
Some of the information on the tree contradicts other, so I'm
fairly certain he is just copying what he finds in other ancestry trees,
and puts any hint he receives in his tree.

Any suggestions for how I would find Holten Oberhausen would be greatly
appreciated, as well as how to find out more about this family.

Sincerely, Lin Herz Palm Bay, Florida lin2@...
