Searching for: STEINMETZ and PERL from Bogdan Voda - Kechnie - Konyha - Maramures #hungary

Leah Herz
 

Hi, I am looking for information about:

1. Mayer Pinchas STEINMETZ, who I believe lived in Bogdan Voda originally
from Borsa, and passed away around 1917
2. his daughter Sara Lea STEINMETZ, born in Bogdan Voda, she died in 1940
and is buried in Dragomiresti

3. Rechel (GANZ) PERL who married Asher PERL and lived in Bogdan Voda

Rechel was the daughter of Shimshon Aryeh GANZ who lived in Dragomiresti
Shimshon Aryeh GANZ was married to Sara Lea STEINMETZ.
Rechel was his daughter >from a previous marriage, possibly the sister of
Sara Lea

I would appreciate all help in finding more information about my ancestors.

Thank you,
Leah Herz

This is not true. The Kriegsarchiv in Vienna has documents on soldiers, too!
I have in my hand a document on the decoration of the ancestor of one of my
clients. He was a simple gunman! And the document was there and was handed
over to me by the Hungarian Delegation.

But the database is gappy, many documents are missing, unfortunately.

Here are their contact details.

When I wrote to Vienna they said that they only kept records of the
officers.
The letter was in German which I had translated.

Two years later I wrote to them again. This time in English. They daisy aid
the same thing and they said " last time we wrote you in German. This time
in English. " Seems they keep good records but not of soldiers who weren't
officers.

My grandfathers Max Kreisz and Meyhardt Roth both served in the Hungarian
army.

Re: advice for 8th grade students about Israel #general

The privacy laws in Israel are 70 years unless the material is published
and open to the public.

I suggest you take a look at the Israel Genealogy Research Association
website. We have an extensive collection of databases for the Ottoman and
Mandate period. We also have a collection for the period of the beginning
of the State of Israel >from material that has been published. Registration
is free and allows use of the database but does not include images.
http://genealogy.org.il/AID/index.php

On our descriptions of the databases, you can also see the materials that
will be coming up in the next year. We also have a list of archives and
other sources for Israel in our resources section.

If the students know Hebrew (or their parents) there is also the Jewish
Historical Newspaper website of the National Library.

Mogilev Gubernia directories #belarus

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Mogilev Gubernia Commemorative Books (Pamiatnaia Knizhka) for 14 years
during 1865-1916 have recently been added to the full-text search
engine at http://genealogyindexer.org, with search results linking
directly to corresponding images on the Russian State Library's
website or to downloadable .PDFs >from the Belarusian State Library.
This significantly increases the number of such sources covered by the
search engine.

While these directories do not include every resident, business, or
organization -- they are not nearly as comprehensive as the Russian
Empire Business Directories (Vsia Rossiia) also on the site -- finding
matches can be especially helpful because of the wide range of dates
and typical inclusion of patronymics. You might learn the name of the
father of someone who owned a business in 1865, for example.

All of these sources are included in a search with the default
options. The default option "Add Latin->Cyrillic" allows you to
search with Latin letters, even though the sources are written in
Cyrillic, by using automated transliteration (and looking for gender
variants). If you do know a Cyrillic spelling of your search term,
though, you can enter that (or try both approaches). The wildcard *,
matching zero or more letters, works at the beginning and/or end of
words, regardless of whether you use Latin with transliteration or
Cyrillic.

To see exactly which years are currently covered or for links to
browse the directories, rather than search, see
http://genealogyindexer.org/directories#Mogilev.

To stay updated about new additions to the search engine, you can
subscribe to a weekly newsletter at http://genealogyindexer.org/news.

Are there news in Jewish Genetic genealogy? #general

Dear Genners

The Jewishgen page for Genetics Genealogy shows scientific papers as
new as 2006.

I guess there must have been news in the field in the last years.

Can anyone direct me on where to read fresher info?

Thanks in advance

KOSSMAN Family - Paris #general

Bubbles Segall
 

I am helping a friend Shirley with her research.

Her paternal grandmother was Jenny KOSSMAN (1876-1949). She married
Kalman DIMOVITCH (1878-1953). Jenny died in London and Kalman in
Middlesex. Shirley has no idea where they were born. They went to
Paris when Shirley's dad was a baby.

We are trying to find any descendants of Jenny's brother Simon
KOSSMAN. Simon married Gabby (maiden name unknown) and they had a son
by the name of Gilbert who was prominent in the Marquis during World
War 2. They also had a daughter - name unknown. They lived at Rue des
Ecoles in Paris. Jenny also had a cousin by the name of Mendel MODLIN.

If anyone knows this family or anything about them, please contact me privately.
