Albert Berthold GROSSMAN - Son of Jacob and Minnie #general

Linda Shefler
 

Albert Berthold GROSSMAN was born April 1852, supposedly in Hungary (but the
exact place unknown and it might have only been Hungary for a period of time
and then become something else).

Albert was the son of Jacob and Minnie GROSSMAN. He was one of several
brothers and attended a rabbinical seminary of which his oldest brother was
the director. His intention was to become a rabbi. At the time he already
had a brother living in America, possibly in Atlanta, and Albert eventually
came to America in 1880 as an art consultant.

I am attempting to help my cousin learn more about his GROSSMAN family and
would greatly appreciate hearing >from anyone who is connected to this family
or has knowledge of them. A rabbinical seminary run by a GROSSMAN might be
an important clue.

Please respond privately.

Many thanks,

The Memoirs of Peter Kleinmann of Kustanovice/Munkacs #austria-czech

steve725@...
 

There has been a good addition to the Museum's ongoing and evolving
exhibition "Walk in my Shoes: Collected Memories of the Holocaust."

You can now read the complete memoirs of Holocaust survivor Peter (Dezider)
Kleinmann, who was born in 1925 in the small village of Kustanovice, about a
one hour walk >from the city of Mukacevo (aka Munkacs, Hungary; Mukacevo,
Czechoslovakia; Mukachevo, Soviet Union; today Mukacheve, Ukraine).

Peter writes about:

Jewish communal life in Munkacs
The rise of anti-Semitism during Hungarian occupation
The Munkacs ghetto
Deportation
Existence in the concentration camps Auschwitz, Gross-Rosen and Flossenburg
The Death March
Liberation

There are a good number of photos included, both of family, scenes around
towns, a sanitorium in Switzerland, and also of the camps.

You can begin to read his memoirs at
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/wims-kleinmann-01.htm . More about Peter
Kleinmann, including video testimony, will be made available to you some
time this year once the Museum's "World War II and the Holocaust" section
has been augmented and made ready for viewing.

The submission of more such memoirs to the virtual Museum of Family History
are welcome.

Missing Revision and Famiy Lists #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

From: Chaim Luria cluria@zahav.net.il
<< Is it true that a copy of all revision and family lists that were
created in each town in Lithuania were sent to Russia (St. Petersburg ?)
in the 19th century? >>

Based on my previous discussions with the Lithuanian archivists, the
only revision or family lists that were sent to St. Petersburg was
the 1897 census of the Russian Empire. The copies of that census were
later destroyed and no longer exist in St. Petersburg. Only about 10%
of that census for towns in Lithuania still exist and are located in
the Historical Archive (LVIA) in Vilnius. A translation of this census
is available on Jewishgen

Found ancestors after years of search and Researching siblings of Ahron or Aaron Getzel #galicia

Arthur Getzel
 

I want to thank Victoria Fisch for helping me in finding three
great uncles, my great grandmother and two sets of great great
grandparents. For the first time, I have great great grandparents.
I am now looking for the descendants of a Abraham Gedalje Getzil
(Getzel), Urias Getzil (Getzel) and a Moses Getzil (Getzel).
Getzel is the present spelling of the name. Also, I want to know
if anyone has a Mune or Muna Frim, Frym, or Frum in their tree.
This is my great grandmother who was married to Chajim Getzel.
Besides the three siblings mentioned above, there is their son
Ahron who is my grandfather and a sister Henna or Anna who is a
great aunt.

Copies of Vienna 1938 records available for surnames HORN and FRUCHTER #galicia

Marla Raucher Osborn <osborn@...>
 

Hello researchers,

Following the March 1938 Anschluss, Jews that lived within what
was then "Greater Germany," including newly annexed Austria,
were required to file statements of their belongings and wealth to
the Nazi authorities.

I have available statements filed by individuals with surnames
HORN and FRUCHTER (received >from IKG and the Austrian State
Archives) for anyone researching these surnames.

Again, these individuals would have had to have been living in
Austria in 1938 to have been required to file these documents.

The documents I have include:

- Assets Declaration (Vermoegensanmeldung) - listing of Jewish
assets as of 27 April 1938, drawn up by the Jewish Property
Declaration Office (Vermoegensverkehrsstelle)

- Emigration Questionnaire of the Jewish Community of Vienna
(1938) - >from IKG Vienna (Israelitische Kultusgemeinde Wien /
Jewish Community Vienna)

As these records ultimately did not pertain to my particular
families HORN and FRUCHTER, I am willing to make them available
to anyone interested, free of charge, on CD.

GOLDWASSER/GOLDWATER/WATERS of Sochaczew and Kalisz, Poland, and of Dublin and also Sydney Sqyare, Mile End, London; also BINKOWSKY (Kolo near Kalisz?) #poland

Mary Sayers <mary.sayers@...>
 

I have been able to find out a little about my mother-in-law's
father thanks to his naturalisation papers, censuses, and also of course
JRI-PL, as follows:

Morris Mendel GOLDWATER (Mosek Menachem GOLDWASSER) b 23 Feb 1867,
Sochotszow (which I take to mean Sochaczew); son of Abram GOLDWASSER and
Zilpa FRENKEL. In London Morris worked as a woollen merchant. He is
stated on naturalisation papers to have been an art dealer when in
Poland between 1892 and 1893; no other occupations are given. He married
Machla (Minnie) BINKOWSKY in Feb 1885 at Kolo near Kalisz, and two or
more of his children were born there. The family appear to have moved to
London in 1894-1895.

Morris died in Dublin in 1942 at the home of his son, Israel (Erwin)
GOLDWATER, violinist, b c 1887, probably Poland, but variously stated to
be City of London, the high seas, and Hull.

I have been trying to trace information on two of Morris's sons
as follows:

Phillip GOLDWATER, b Mile End, London, 8 May 1897, who appears to have
married Lilian Bernstein and may have had a daughter, Marion/Minnie
WATERS. Place of death unknown.

Jacob (Jack) GOLDWATER b Mile End, London, April 1899, who appears to
have married Rachel GOLDFOOT and who died in Dublin c 1966. Not known if
he had any children.

I would very much like information on this family or anyone connected
with them. I would be especially grateful for help in locating
information on Morris's wife and his parents.

Any help much appreciated.
