The Fellano-Antwerp, Belgium 1905 #general

JANICE GOLDMAN <jg2333@...>
 

Dear Jewishgenners:

Have you heard of the Fellano (or similar), a vessel that sailed >from
Antwerp, Belgium to the Port of New York in August of 1905? Do you know
where I might find passenger lists?
I am not able to access the record on the Ellis Island website, and cannot
find anything on the web about the ship or its passengers.

Thank you.

This must be a transliteration of a diminuitive of Itsik- i.e. Yitzchak.

Max LINDENTHAL Vienna -Australia #germany

Neill & Fran Luebke <nfluebke@...>
 

Trying to locate Max (formerly LINDENTHAL) in Melbourne, Australia.

Two years ago I noted that several of my LINDENTHAL cousins (Hedwig,
Hans, Max) and Eva (LINDENTHAL) MANDL >from Vienna were listed on the
Austrian asset lists, among those with unclaimed assets including
Swiss accounts. Another list of Holocaust victims contained Hedwig's
name as dying in Auschwitz in 1943. She was the paternal grandmother
of Max LINDENTHAL.

Last evening I found that the Claims Resolution Tribunal certified an
award to someone who could only be Max LINDENTHAL, son of Hans
LINDENTHAL. The document cited many legal documents and traced the
escape of the families of Hans and his sister Eva MANDL in 1938.

Eva and her husband Rudolph MANDL fled >from Vienna to Vaduz,
Liechtenstein in 1938 and in about 1939 moved to London with her
husband. He died in 1945 and Eva emigrated to Montreal, Canada and
died in 1993. They had no children.

Hans had officially changed his name (perhaps shortening), married in
January 1927 in Vienna and he and his wife and young son Max (born
Sept. 1929) fled to Switzerland in August 1938 and then immigrated to
Melbourne, Australia. Hans (formerly LINDENTHAL) died in 1977 and his
wife in 1987.

The family resided in Melbourne, Australia and may have converted to
Catholicism several generations back. I have letters >from Hedwig and
her in-laws, Berthold & Bertha LINDENTHAL to their Chicago cousins. I
also have traced the LINDENTHAL family to the early 1800s in Bavaria.

I would appreciate it if anyone might know of this family or
individual. The Tribunal certified the award on November 26, 2002 so
it might have made its way into newspapers in the Melbourne area. Any
assistance or advice on how to locate him would be appreciated.

Success Story! #poland

Belle6007@...
 

When I started researching my MEST family, I knew almost nothing about my
great grandparents, except that my ggf was named Jacob MEST and his wife was
named Shima and that the family was >from Ostraleka and Lomza. Also, Jacob
had been previously married and had five children with his first wife.

While searching names in JRI-Poland, I came across a record for a marriage
agreement for "Jankiel MEJST" and "Syma ZABOROWSKA" >from the year 1872. Of
course, Jankiel could be Jacob, MEJSTcould be MEST, and Syma could be Shima.
Further, my grandfather, the alleged eldest of that marriage, was born in
1876. This looked promising. The good news was that the record could be
ordered, and my check was in the mail that very day.

The record came in less than a month. It is handwritten (of course) in
Russian, and it has been difficult to get a full translation. Using the
services of three Russian/English speaking people, I learned that "Jankiel"
was 40 years old at the time of the marriage....definitely old enough to have
fathered five children in his first marriage. Also, Syma's father, although
deceased, had been named Shmuel. Their first son, my grandfather, was named
Shmuel. The marriage took place in Lomza; my grandfather was born in
Ostraleka -- just down the road.

Due to the similarity of the names, the year and place of the marriage, the
age of Jankiel MEJST at the time of the marriage, I am 100% convinced that I
am in the possession of my great grandparents' marriage agreement!

I am truly excited at this find, and have shared it with my MEST relatives in
the U.S., Canada and Israel. Thank you, JRI-Poland for your indexing and
availability of records. My donation is in the mail.

Can anyone help me get these documents?

I am researching the Gerszonowicz/Garson/Gershon family.

I require the birth certificates of Abraham and Samuel
Gerszonowicz born in
Lodz, Poland. Is it possible to get a marriage
certificate >from Israel
dated 1947?

Abraham married Hela and then immigrated to Canada.

Samuel married Malka Kluska in Israel on Feb. 25/47 and
then immigrated to
Sydney, Australia.

I have Abraham's Canadian citizenship papers but do not
have any
documentation for Samuel.

I must prove that Abraham and Samuel were indeed
brothers.

Thank you,

Rachel Steinhouse

Goldbaum and Szajndla Jenta Majzels. The Goldbaums lived in Hrubieszow, the
Majzels in Krasnobrod. Szajndla Jenta [b. 1861 in Krasnobrod] was the
daughter of Majer Majzels and Chana [d. 1863]. She had a twin, Icek, and at
least one other brother, Moszko [b. 1859].
Srul had a sister, Chaja, who was married to Israel Hecht; another sister,
Machle, was married to Wolf Springer. Other siblings were Chana Ita
Goldbaum [b. 1888], Hinda [b. 1891] and Haim Icek [b. 1895].
Srul married Chaja Zysla Frydman in Lublin in 1918. Zysla's siblings were
