Gnesen, Prussia Records in Germany #germany

Helene Kenvin <hekenvin@...>
 

I am looking for vital records for the Jewish community in Gnesen, Prussia
(now Gniezno, Poland) before the mid-19th century. According to
JRI-Poland, there are very few such records in Poland. Does anyone
know in which German archives these records might be?

With thanks, Helene Kenvin hekenvin@bellsouth.net

Escaping Germany via Japan #germany

Paula Weil
 

Dear Fellow Genners,

I recently found documents indicating that my great uncle Theodor WEIL
and his wife Anne Else WEIL escaped >from Germany to the U.S. aboard
the SS Nitta Maru sailing >from Kobe Japan October 17, 1940.
According to the ship's manifest their passports were issued in Berlin
on June 30, 1940.

This information brings up questions.

Why did Jews escaping Germany travel to Japan instead of leaving from
a port in Europe? How might they have travelled >from Berlin to Japan?
Any guesses about how they were to able to obtain passports in 1940?

I'd appreciate any help you can give me answering these questions.

I'd also be interested in knowing of any recommended articles and
books that throw light on what it was like follow this route of escape.

Another Holocaust Mystery Solved - NBC news story #poland

Pamela Weisberger
 

You might be interested in today's news article showing how one
should never give up hope about learning the fate of those who
perished in the Holocaust.

Even in 2013 facts and truths are coming to light. This is a story
about a Holocaust mystery revealed after decades as Amos Cohen, a
shipbuilder living in Haifa, Israel learns the fate of his long-lost
relative Rose Kobylinski, who died in a German death march and was
buried in a Roman Catholic cemetery in a small village in Poland:

http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/04/14/17723483-after-decades-family-unravels-holocaust-mystery?lite

It's also a lesson about how you should never stop asking, inquiring,
and posting/posing your questions in a variety of forums and to many
institutions. One day an answer might find it's way to you because of
some trail or inquiry you started long ago.

Descendants of David Alpert (died ~1929) from Harrisburg, Pa. #lithuania

Ziegelman <zieg_exp@...>
 

I am searching for descendants of David Alpert (died ~1929) in Harrisburg,
Pa. He is a brother of my paternal grandmother, Celia (Simcha) nee
Alperovich Alpert (~1885-1972) who was born in Kurenets, Belarus and grew
up in nearby Vileika. In the US, Celia married Barnett (Dov Ber/Boris)
Alpert, who was >from Postawy, and whose father was also >from Kurenets.
Please contact me privately: andi@ziegelman.co.il. Thanks!

For all Alperts who don't yet know it, Alperovich is the Old Country surname
of most Alperts, and nearly all Alperoviches originated in Kurenets,
Belarus. The original surname of the Alperoviches of Kurenets was Halpern.
The Alperoviches are a branch of the illustrious rabbinical Halpern family
that descends >from Rashi via R. Elchanan Ha-kadosh son of R. Isaac of
Dampierre (called "the RI"). The first man named "proto" Alperovich was the
first Jewish settler in Kurenets who arrived there (probably form Poland) in
about 1700, to deal in lumber. His name was Abram.

Hi everybody. I have exciting news! Today a member of this forum who
was in touch with me >from the start wrote and called me to tell me the
great news! His investigative tactics paid off!

Benny died in 1958 and is buried in Long Island - Beth Moses Cemetery.
Go figure!

I have contacted the cemetery and was told that I can send them $5 for a
picture of the grave and that is exactly what I'll do, also for Bella.

I am soooo excited!

Thanks a bunch to all of you and especially to the person who found him,

Re: Vital Records from Chrzanow #galicia

Brian Lehman asked about researching family >from Chrzanow, Galicia...
Would anyone know if vital records exist and where are they kept?
Maybe an index?

Brian... start with the RTR Foundation to find out what vital records
exist... go to http://www.rtrfoundation.org/results.php and put in
Chrzanow...there are many records in many archives.

I would also look at the JewishGen Community Page for Chrzanow at
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~community~-497247
and follow all the links...

If you decide to hire a researcher, try JewishGen's researcher infofile at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Infofiles/researchers.htm

And lastly, try connecting with other researchers who might have similar
research requirements via JGFF or the discussion group archives...
