trying to find the descendants of sisters Rose FLINK and Sophie HOREN #general

אלון גינצברג <along@...>
 

My name is Alon Ginzberg. The grandfather of my father had many sisters
in the U.S.A. His name was Michael ROZENSHTROM. He was born in 1874 in
Volhnya -Russia (probably >from Ostrog or Zaslev - but I can't be sure)
and in 1923 he immigrated to Palestine - Israel. In our family it was
known that he had many sisters who immigrated to the U.S.A. - among them
there was one sister who I found details about her recently. Her name
was Sprintza (and in America she was called Sophie). Her husband's name
was Frank HOREN. She came to the U.S.A in 1910. She had 2 children: Rose
and Jack. Sophie lived in New York and died June 1944. I have a picture
of the tombstone.
Rose FLINK and Jack Horen died in the 90'. Both of them have no children.
Sophie (Sprintza) had four (4) sisters, none of whom I know nor do I
have any knowledge of their married names or where they lived. I presume
they are listed by age but am not sure of this: 1- (Sidae or Sigae)
Sonia, 2- (Bloome) Blooma, 3- Hannah, 4- (Toili) Tilley.
There is a notation that there were 3 sons, who must have been brothers,
but there are no names. I presume that these were brothers to those listed
above, but seemingly they did not come to the U.S (probably one of them
is my ggrandfather - Michael Rosenstrom / Rozenshtrom)
One more fact: The name of the father of Michael and Shprintza is
Shmirel (Shmarihu.(

I need any help in order to find the descendants of the above sisters.

Does anyone know sisters (probably were born between 1890 - 1870) with
such names?
Does anyone has any idea how should I find them?

Thank you very much

Berlin Marriage and Birth records? #general

msalzbank
 

I thank all of you who have responded with leads to find death
certificates >from Berlin.

I would also like to know if there are marriage and birth records
available >from appx. 1885-1905 >from Berlin

Alexander FRIMMERMAN left Bessarabia and moved to Berlin. I am not
sure when he married (I think he had 2 wives - *not* at the same time!).
He had opened a school for Chazanim (cantors) and had at least one
son, Harry who was later the man behind the Comedian Harmonists. (A
fascinating story of that musical group)

I believe that Alexander had 2 daughters- perhaps >from his first
marriage and am trying to confirm that... any suggestions?

Is there a record similar to Ellis Island for Berlin? where there may
be manifests ?

Thank you

Re: TAUSSIG #general

Rachel Slansky
 

My great grandfather immigrated >from Teplitz-Schoenau, Bohemia in 1903.
I have a postcard >from home he received in New York >from an Oskar
TAUSSIG. Pictured on the front is the "Teplitzer Fussball-Klub 1903"
with an arrow pointing to who I assume is Oskar. I does not appear that
this TAUSSIG was related to my family- he signs the card "you friend,
Oskar Taussig". I have no further info on him but have always wondered
if there might be a family connection.

Austria [proper] ie not the pre-1918 Empire

dates given and places of birth where known - here are
just a few for us to remember today: Josef 14.01.1900;

Klara 25.12.1881; Konrad 29.07.1882 Vienna; Kurt

Olga 31.10.1895; Olga 14.09.1868; Olga 23.11.1860.

When you analyse the holocaust deaths on Yad Vashem,
you find more than 1,000 tragic TAUSSIG victims;
Places of origin, where recorded:

187 Bohemia - 151 Vienna - 121 Hungary - 42 Poland
38 Germany - 27 Moravia.

I think you can immediately see the spread in the
ex-Habsburg territories. That is why I said in my
first analysis, that the message re this genealogical
enquiry should be sent to the Austria-Czech SIG to
target the right audience. Obviously the Hungary SIG
would also be a wise move.

FHL JEWISH RECORDS FOR HUNGARY #hungary

alex p miller <alex.miller@...>
 

Everything in Hungary was filmed up to Oct 1 1895, the point at which
civil registration was started.This project was done in 1965 at the
National Archives in Budapest.(In recent years there is a new project on
the way where civil records, i.e. post 1895 are being filmed and some are
available on microfilm--it would be interesting to find out in what
order/ context is this being done).

The way the old records were divided between the new countries after the
war was that the country where the District/Jaras seat resided got the
records for the entire district, even if some of the villages were not
there. Example: Kiraly Helmec was the district seat for Bodrog district
and after the war it became Slovakia. All the district records including
Cigand, Rozvagy, Karad etc which are in Hungary went along and were
excluded >from the 1965 project, thus do not appear on the FHL films.

However, interestingly enough the regional archives in Ujhely do have the
records!

Dear Members,

I have just come across this site - it carries some excellent
information, including short biographies. Many of the names are
Jewish. Importantly, it also has excellent links.

I hope it proves helpful to some.
