The Galitzianer: Call for Town Updates, Etc. #galicia

Edward Goldstein <Edward.TheG@...>
 

The next issue of The Galitzianer will be published in February.

This is a call to town leaders, historians, et. al., to provide
updates and other articles regarding their towns. The contents of all
articles should be limited to matters of genealogical research
interest. Each article should cover a single town or, when
appropriate, a single administrative district. I would discourage you
from including organizational matters, calls for financial support,
and the like.

Articles will be edited as necessary for style, space constraints,
overlap with other articles, and our publication policies. If
requested, copies of edited articles will be provided prior to
publication for the authors' approval.

Please submit articles in the form of word processing files
(preferably in Word format) attached to an email. Where that is not
feasible, please email me to make other arrangements.

I need to receive all material by 15 January to permit proper
editing, layout and production.

Thank you for your cooperation.

hamburg list #general

Michael Herzlich
 

I have been able to access the download area
successfully on one computer but not another. The one
I had good luck with has Internet Explorer version
5.5. The one that didn't work was at version 5.0.
Their web site seems to be very particular to the
browser version and patches. You absolutely must have
128 bit encryption support in your browser which was
not automatically included until several months ago
due to export restrictions. For internet explorer 5
this is easy to add, just click on help - About
Internet Explorer - Update Information (after cipher
strength: 40 bit) and follow the download prompts. If
you have internet explorer with cipher strength: 128
and it still doesn't work, if you are not up to
version 5.50 you can access that download once you are
at the microsoft web site.

Hi all!

I found several relatives on the new Hamburg list,
but when I try to purchase the additional information
I get a "no response" message, two days in a row.

I tried both microsoft explorer and netscape, both of
which are versions Hamburg requires for secure
transactions.

Has anyone been successful?


The value of JRI - an anecdote #general

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

Those who wonder about the value of the JRI project as compared to
a private search, might consider the following anecdote.

The Pikholz Project paid AGAD for a search of Pikholz birth and death
records a couple of years ago. For the relevant periods, they told us
they found sixty-five births and ten deaths. This week, we (JRI
contributors and town leaders) received the Excel file for Rozdol
indexing and there were 110 births and eighteen deaths of Pikholz
descendants for the same periods. That's after a brief examination.
There may be a few more that I missed.

Frank GEBHARDT #general

T.S.McGurn <tsmcgurn@...>
 

Hi, This a sort of a shot in the dark, but I don't have any idea about
how to proceed so here goes.
My Mother's Father was Frank B. Gebhardt. I didn't even know that he
existed until recently. A long story. He was born in Buckingham, Canada.
His parents where Frank Gebahrdt and Amelia Boehme Gebhardt, both born
in Germany.They and their daughter Hazel and maternal Grandmother all
died apx. 9/15/14 in Cleveland,Ohio of mushroom poisoning. They are
buried at the Brooklyn Heights Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio. Frank B,
Gebhardt (my grandfather ) died 5/5/26 and is also buried at the
Brooklyn Heights Cemetery. I have death certificates, census records
ect. I haven't been able to get his birth certificate. Anyhow, I have
been told by my Mother, her Aunt and various other that the Gebhardts
were Jewish. I can't find or don't know how to ascertain this. There was
no religion stated on anything including the grave stones.Is there a web
site or a place that I could contact to help me find this information.
Thank you for the time, Linda McGurn

Camp Kitchener #general

sanvic366@...
 

Although this information was requested by Sylvia Jacobs, it might be of
interest to other genners. I visited relatives who came to Camp Kitchener in
March 1939 >from Vienna, Austria. One had been arrested during Crystal Night
on November 10, 1938. He was released after several hours when a physician
at the police barracks certified him as being ill. A young lady who lived
across the street >from him and worked at the Jewish Community Center,
arranged for him to immigrate to England. The other left after his place of
business had been "aryanized," i.e. taken over by Nazis. Both arrived in
Camp Kitchener on March 29, 1939.

Camp Kitchener was located near the towns of Ramsgate and Sandwich, it had
been a military installation, formerly called Richborough Camp, which had
been deserted and derelict since it was last used by General Kitchener's
troops in 1918. It was transformed into an emergency home for 300 refugees
from Germany in February 1939. The camp population reached 3,500 men, mostly
young German and Austrian Jews who were granted temporary sanctuary. They
reconstructed the camp, working >from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for their food,
lodging, and sixpence a week for pocket money. Fifty huts with thirty-six
double bunks each were the sleeping quarters. There were classes in English
after work. They could also leave the camp after work, but had to return
before the 10 p.m. roll call. Only two men were cited for misdemeanors, both
for overstaying their leave. All refugees remained at Camp Kitchener until
they were able to emigrate to the United States or other locations outside
of England. The camp was run on a self-sufficient basis. Of the sixty
doctors in the camp, all but two performed ordinary camp tasks. Artists
decorated the camp with pictures and mottoes. A former member of the Vienna
Philharmonic Orchestra organized a camp orchestra, and professional and
amateur actors and singers provided the entertainment.

I hope this information is helpful.

Re: Looking for Friedmans from Kosice Hungary area. #hungary

Barbara & Steve Wasser <swass@...>
 

Leah Friedman Levine is looking for Friedman's in the Kosice Hungary area.

According to the birth records at the archives in Presov, I have an
uncle Gejza HARTSTEIN who was born August 6, 1896 in Beretto
(Bretejovce) and the God parent, i.e Sondeck was Miklos Friedman.

Gejza died as an infant and we have no other records and do not have
any more information regarding this Friedman. Does he appear in
anyone's tree? I would think he must have been related somehow.

Re: Looking for Friedmans from Kosice Hungary area. #hungary

Regarding more Friedman info:

I just checked my data base and realized that Bernat aka Benjamin
Friedman was born in 1853 in Hungary. He married Pauline Frank and
they had five sons among them the late bandleader Ted Lewis. Family
history indicates that the HARTSTEIN family is related to Ted Lewis
aka Ted Friedman. Of course Miskos could have been a member of the
family too but I haven't been able to document that.
