Mogilev and Otick Mohilev #belarus

Adam Eisen <aeisen@...>
 

Several of my research threads on my Eisenstein, Malickson and Polsky
roots have lead me to Mogilev but I am a bit unsure how to interpret
things. According to my family and some other sources, I have traced
roots to Molief, Bessarabia. In related threads I have also found clear
references to Mogilev as the place of origin.

Is it possible that my sources are just wrong or are there two Mogilevs?

Also, does anyone know if it is possible to get more info about a
Philadelphia organization called Otick (or Otech) Moglev, which appears
to have been active in the early 1900s.

My father-in-law's cousin, Wolfgang NUSSBAUM was born 30
December 1932 in Jena, Thueringen.

Wolfgang lived until 1939 at the home of the Juedischen Frauenbundes
(started by Bertha PAPPENHEIM) in Neu-Isenburg, and was then moved to the
Jewish orphanage in Frankfurt am Main.&nbsp; He was deported >from there
to Theresienstadt in 1942 and later to Auschwitz.&nbsp; I am interested
in contacting anyone who may also be researching a former resident&nbsp;
(or researching any other aspect) of either of these homes.

HELD in Wombach, Germany #germany

Polly Held <phheld@...>
 

I am trying to make the connection between Brooklyn, New York and
Wombach, Bavaria, Germany (I believe it is now a part of Lohr am Main)
for my grandfather Max HELD. Max was born August 20, 1870 in Wombach,
Bavaria, Germany. He married Ida BLITZER on March 24, 1901 in New York
City. I am trying to find information >from Germany for Max and his
family. According to his marriage license his father's name was Jacob
HELD and his mother's name was Clara HELLER. My aunt (Max's daughter)
told me that, >from what she can recall, Max had five brothers, Joseph,
Leopold, Gustave, Herman and Karl. She had met Leopold and Joseph and
thinks they lived in the US and, according to Max and Ida's marriage
license, Leopold was a witness at their wedding. I would like to find
information about Max's life and family before he came to the US. I
have quite a bit of info about Max and our family on this side of the
ocean (census, birth, death, family recollections, etc.), but do not
know how to find info >from Germany. By the way, the family was Jewish,
so I don't think church records are going to be of much help. Any
suggestions as to where I should start?

Also, if any of my HELD relatives are out there, would you contact me.
Maybe you might have family recollections that I don't.

that new readers or new information among regulars will bring help.
I am searching for information about and the descendents of Isaac SACHS,
born Nov 1859 in Berkach, Thuringia, Germany, second son of Hirsch SACHS

STRAUSS family of Selters #germany

LLevine2@...
 

I am working on a family history of the STRAUSS family of Cleveland, Ohio.

My great great great grandfather, Meyer Feist STRAUSS came to Cleveland
with his second wife and three grown sons, Abraham, Nathan and Elias in
about 1849. He was >from Selters, Germany in the province of Nassau.

According to family history, Meyer Feisst STRAUSS was one of ten children
of Feist Baer 1745-1831. All supposedly lived to an old age, a hallmark of
this family. In fact, Meyer was celebrated as the first Jewish centenarian
of Cleveland. Cleveland records indicate that he was born in March of 1791
and died in 1891. However, a book recently published in Germany, Juden im
Westerwald, has Meyer born in 1793.

We know of two more brothers of Meyer and one sister:

o Nathan Feist STRAUSS born in 1785 married to Michaele BAER

o Isak Feist STRAUSS of Hoechsenbach

o Esther Feist STRAUSS married to Hirsch Rosenberg of Hoechstenbach

The STRAUSS family is extensively intermarried with the HEILBERG family of
Meudt.

Meyer supposedly left of daughter(name unknown) in Germany.

I am trying to find the names of the other six STRAUSS siblings of Meyer
and the name of Meyer's daughter who stayed in Germany.

According to the book Juden im Westerwald the STRAUSS family took their
surname in 1841 >from the house in the Judengasse in Frankfort. If anyone
wants to reply to me privately, I have information >from that book about 9
other Jewish families in Selters: FRIEDEMANN, BERNSTEIN, HOFMANN,
SCHWEIGERT, SCHWARZ, STERN, DANZIG, ALTMANN, AND CASPARUS.

To all those who have the Przemysl Yskor book
I have learned that on page 205 the name Glazer was mentioned
and on page 368 was the name Stolzberg mentioned.
These were the family names of my grandfather his daughter and his
maiden name of his wife, who was my stepgrandmother.
I would be grateful if these two pages are scanned and sent to me.

My PGGM, Chaya Henna (Reich) Guzik, being very devout, devorced her husband,
myPGGF Arye Leib
Guzik in Stropkov in 1906/7 to live, die and be buried in Jerusalem. She
died in 1916.
Someone suggested that she lived in "Batei Ungarn".Does this still exist?
How can they be contacted? Would they have any records (time frame
1906-1916)?
What would such a woman, about 70-80 years old, do there to occupy her time?
The Chevra Kadisha, while being very co-operative, have no records at all.
I would appreciate any information and/or ideas.
