JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Antwerp: Synagogue on van Diffenbek Straat #general

MBernet@...
 

In 1938 I was smuggled across the border >from Germany to Brussels, on the
night of October 3 to 4. My father, rushing to greet us when the train
arrived in Brussels in the morning, had his foot run over by a passing bus
and could scarcely walk. That night was the start of Yom Kippur and my father
arranged to pray at a small synagogue on van Diffenbek Straat, across the
street >from our cousins, closer to Pelikaan Straat.

The synagogue followed the Polish ritual and was quite exotic for me. (When
my father's foot got better, we could walk to the Eisenmann (?) synagogue,
further away, which followed the German ritual).

Does anyone know the name of that synagogue? The address?
Would anyone have a photograph?

Thank you, and Shanah Tovah to all.

William Levason Edwards - Mayor of Gloucestershire #unitedkingdom

Judith Wolkovitch <judywolk@...>
 

William Levason Edwards was the first Jewish mayor of Gloucester in 1932. He
ran for the Labour party around 1919 but failed to regain his seat. He died
in 1935. He married Martha Lilian Moss in 1911 in the Western Synagogue.
His father is listed as Abraham Levy/Levey/Edwards (also known as Abraham
Igle Levey) a tobacco manufacturer, who died in Bristol in 1913. Edwards
was also President of the Dental Association and for this reason I believe
he is connected to the Levason family of Gloucester, many of whom were
dentists. Edwards had a sister or stepsister Selina Levey who married Isaac
Friedlander/Freeland in 1914 in Bristol. They had a daughter Nancy and a
son Harris. There was another daughter who married H. Lewis and they had a
son Harold who died at the age of 5 in 1912 in Wales.

Edwards' wife Martha had a brother Ardon Moss who married Rose Hart
(daughter of Alfred Hart and Julia) who died in 1934. Ardon died 1959.

According to the records Edwards was born around 1877 but I have utterly
failed to find him or his father in the 1881, 1891 or 1901 census.

Does anyone recognise any of the names connected with the family?

Many thanks,

William Levason Edwards #unitedkingdom

Judith Wolkovitch <judywolk@...>
 

I finally found William Edwards' father in the census under what I thought
was his middle name IGLE. The JC memorial record lists him as Abraham Igle
Levey. It came up as TGLE in the 1881 census and IGLE in the ones for 1891
and 1901. William must have adopted his forename as he is not listed under
that name.

Ohio Online Death and Marriage Index #usa

Shelly Crane
 

Hello,
I came upon a nice online resource for Ohio, (USA) genealogy called, "The
R.B. Hayes Presidential Center Index." This includes over 1,200,000
obituaries, death and marriage notices >from the 1810's to present day for
the following Ohio counties: Allen, Auglaize, Belmont, Clark, Defiance,
Erie, Franklin, Gallia, Hancock, Hardin, Henry, Highland, Huron, Logan,
Loraine, Miami, Ottawa, Paulding, Putnam, Ross, Sandusky, Seneca, Van Wert,
Washington, Wayne, Wood, Wyandot.

Playing around with this index, I noticed in some cases basic details are
listed including, age, location, names of parents, spouse etc. In other
instances, minimal information is provided, but always there are instructions
for ordering the actual newspaper notice along with instructions for payment.

Unfortunately, only some cities are represented in each county, but with a
bit of luck, you will find a family obituary or other notice. The URL is:

Myles Standish Marseille Vice Consul #germany

Thomas F. Weiss
 

Dear fellow JGenners,

During the late 1930s and early 1940s, refugees >from all over
Europe, particularly >from Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, and
Poland streamed >from the German occupied territories to France.

When France was defeated, many of these refugees went to the port city of
Marseille in the then unoccupied part of France. Here they were
often stuck in a bureaucratic quagmire created by the reluctance of
the French government to issue exit visas and the reluctance of the
American State Department to issue entry visas to the US.

Most American consuls followed the orders of the State Department to limit
immigration to the US. But, the Marseille consulate contained two
Vice Consuls who were sympathetic to the plight of refugees.

These were Hiram Bingham and Myles Standish. These two men also worked
closely with Varian Fry who helped to rescue prominent German,
Austrian, Czech, and Polish intellectuals then resident in France and
whose names were on a Nazi hit list.

Varian Fry has been honored posthumously for his rescue efforts.
Hiram BIngham has also been posthumously honored for his
conscientious stand on behalf of refugees against State Department
orders. His career ultimately suffered for his stand. A commemorative
stamp has been issued for him, he has gotten a State Department
commendation, and was honored by Yad Vashem.

Myles Standish, who worked closely with Bingham and Fry, also suffered
professionally for his moral stand, but his good works have not been
recognized. I am beholden to him since he signed both my entry visa
into the US and my mothers in 1941 enabling us to escape Europe
shortly before the curtain fell and no further emigration was
possible. My mother was born in Vienna, Austria and I was born in
Prague, Czechoslovakia.

I am researching the life of Myles Standish with the intention of
honoring him for his works. Unfortunately he is no longer alive but
some of this family members are and I am in touch with them.

I would like to hear >from other former refugees who were helped by
Myles Standish. I would also like to hear >from anyone who has any
knowledge of Myles Standish. Please reply privately. I would be
happy to help people who were assisted by Standish contact each other
upon request and with their permission.

LATTERHAUS Lisk-Olaszliszka #hungary

Edna Hoover
 

I've been reading Sam Schleman's responses regarding the "AHD,"
which I assume stands for All Hungary Database. I was hoping someone might
be able to help me locate information regarding our great-grandfather,
Refa'el Nossen-Nutte LATTERHAUS, and his father Avraham (Yitshak?) who
emigrated to Palestine >from Lisk, Hungary somewhere between 1880 and 1890.

The FEEFHS map of Northeastern Hungary shows Liszko on the River Bodrog
between Szanto, Keresztur, Szedenes, Tokay and Saros Patak:
Olaszliszka Zemplén/Tokaji járás Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén Megye

Family lore says that Avraham was a Sanzer Hassid who had no specific
occupation, but "sat and studied Torah." We know his wife, Hannah and an
older son also resided in Jerusalem. I suspect they may have migrated with
the disciples of the Hatam Sofer and were members of the Ungarische Kollel
in Jerusalem. Our great-grandfather stated repeatedly that they were
descendants of a lesser known son of R' Elimelekh of Lizhensk.

I have found records for LATTERHAUS in the Polish Databases:

Avraham LAUTERHAUS & his wife, Beila PRECKER are listed as "Martyrs of
Dembitz" in the Debica Yizkor Book.

Jehudes LATTERHAUS, b. 1913 is listed in the Birth Records for Zablocie.

The Krakow Ghetto List shows-
LATERHAUS Charlotte 1911 10 / 133 / 39 & LATERHAUS Gusti 1917 10 / 133 /
40.

There were also some LATTERHAUS in NYC :

SOCIAL SECURITY DEATH INDEX-

The Hamburg Passenger List shows-

Any help with this search in the Hungary Databases would be greatly
appreciated.
