North African Jews #france

Sherry Landa <sherry@...>
 

Good Morning,

Would this be the right place to ask about North African Jews? I have looked
at Jewish Gen and find no specific list for North Africa. I am taking a risk
thinking that Morocco might be within the remit of the list, being French
speaking (as well as Arabic, of course). Could someone advise me if this is
the best place to ask about Morocco or if it isn't make a suggestion as to
where I can find more.

Thanks

This is clearly a specific point of view. Surnames are indeed given in most
synagogue when reading the memorial prayer to identify the individuals being
memorialised. When researching secular records knowing the Hebrew name is of little
use. Knowing a secular surname is of far greater use than the Hebrew name.

If is meant Hebrew given names, then as is evident >from this group many people are
not given, or unaware of, their own or their relation's Hebrew name.

I have only seen one family tree where Hebrew names of people born in the last
hundred years are recorded and this reflects the religious commitment of the
individuals.

I suppose the question is important for what.

LEVINE/LEWICZ,BELSON from Poland #general

astrid <astrid94@...>
 

Hello,
I live in France. I am interested in find genealogic informations on 2 members of
my family: The first one arrived in NYC in 1910. I was able to find the name of the
boat and the date he arrived. He originally came >from Suwalk, Pologne. His name is
Alter BELSON. I wonder if he changed name on the boat or if he already had that
name when he left Pologne. The second one arrived in NYC a few years before (around
1907); He came >from Lomza, Pologne. His name is LEVINE. I do not know his first
name. In Pologne his name sounded more like LEWICZ...

I am interested to go and visit this area of Pologne (Podlachie) hoping finding
informations on them and on their respective sisters and brothers who were left
behind.

I would appreciate any help. Thank you for your reply.

I am looking for my aunt Dvora Jeanty GLASER who was born in
Przemysl in 1927 to her father Chaim GLASER (who was my grandfather)
and to her mother Rachela, whose former name was STOLZBERG. They
married in Przemysl in 1926.

Chaim GLASER was previously married to my grandmother Chaia-Helena.
Her former name was MONDERER.

Cilli Glaser MAYER, who was my mother. Chaim Glaser divorced my
grandmother in the early twenties, left Vienna and moved to Przemysl,
where he married Rachela and had this one daughter, I am looking for.
The last time my family heard >from them was in 1939, a short time
before World War Two broke out. If anyone has information on what
happened to them please let me know.

LANDES #ukraine

Alan Schwartz
 

Hi,

My grandfather came in America in 1913. When he arrived the Ellis Island
database said his last name was LANDES. It also said that he had come
originally in 1903 and then returned to Ukraine and came again in 1913.
My grandfather was born in 1890 and lived in Odessa. I cannot find any
inforamtion on the family LANDES in Odessa nor can I find when he first
came over. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what his name in
the Ukraine could have been or if there are any way I can find out.

Thanks,
Alan L. Schwartz

Hustopece/Auspitz Moravia #austria-czech

MPERLNY@...
 

The Moravian town of Hustopece (Auspitz in German) is unveiling a memorial
plaque on Monday, April 16, 2007 to commemorate the town's Jewish residents
that perished during the Shoa. The plaque will be placed in the entrance way of
the town hall, which is located on the main square.

The small synagogue dating back to the 1880's is currently used as carpentry
shop. The Jewish cemetery was vandalized during the German occupation, and
all the gravestones removed under the communists.
The site of the cemetery is now a public park with just one memorial marker
erected after WW II.

My great grandparents Moritz and Rosalia KNOEPFMACHER nee DEUTSCH both >from
nearby Mikulov (Nikolsburg) moved to Hustopece after their marriage in 1888.
My grandmother and her six siblings were all born in Hustopece before the
family relocated to Vienna at the beginning of the 20th century.

My great great grandparents Simon KNOEPFMACHER (b.1816 Mikulov-d.1897
Hustopece) and Hanni KNOEPFMACHER nee KRAKAUER (b.1820 Boskovice-d.1894 Hustopece)
are both buried there.

Need Help Translating Family Letter - German to English 1909 #general

Carolyn Lea <clea@...>
 

I am seeking help in translating a handwritten letter in German script >from 1909
Berlin. Two people who have tried to give a little help have told me that the some
of the letters are written in an old style and they have only been able to give me
a little information - I have tried to glean the general idea >from the words they
could recognize.

I know that the letter is written by a brother-in-law - sent to Rosa GETZ or GOETZ,
nee WITKOWSKI, in the U.S., to tell her of sad news - the death of her sister. I
believe it tells of the cause of death, that specialists were called in?, and a bit
about her funeral. If someone can easily translate I would love to know what the
letter says. I am specifically seeking 1) the sister's name 2) cause of death, and
3) any names of other family members. The two people that tried to help were unable
to give me much more than I have written above other than at the end greetings are
sent to family in the U. S.

I have posted the letter on viewmate, pages 1 and 2.

Re: Identifying buildings in the Warsaw Ghetto from You Tube #general

Dear Barbara,

the building's you mentioned got now the address: Stawki 5/7 and still there is the
Department of Psychology of Warsaw University. During the War in this building
there was an "office" of SS that was controling the Umschlagplatz in the years
1942-42. Today there is a memorial there:
http://izrael.badacz.org/fotografie/zyd_polska/warszawa74.jpg

In the other building (i think this is the one which people are entering on the
movie that you send link to) which got today the adress Stawki 6/8. also there is
a memorial today:
http://izrael.badacz.org/fotografie/zyd_polska/warszawa76.jpg
During the War there was a school and later hospital in which Nazis made a
contemporary lager for Jews that were sent later to Treblinka. This building-
hospital is mentioned in many memories of those that survived as a place where
Germans and Ukrainians where abusing (i wonder it's not a too light word for what
really happened) to the people that had to stay in this building.

I am hoping again that someone can help me find an obituary notice. I am hoping to
find information about the family of Eva WALDSTEIN, geb. PEARL. She was born in
New York in 1891. She died in Brooklyn in 1979. She was married to Moe (Moses)
WALDSTEIN (b.1884). They had two sons Sidney (b.1910) and Jerome (b.ca.1916).

It is possible that Sidney (or Sydney) WALDSTEIN may have died in Miami in 1988.
I do not know if this was the son of Eva and Moe.

Eva had sisters Miriam, Jeanette, Ruth and Sylvia.

Thank you for your help.
