Notice of death in "Aufbau" obit - A question #germany

paulaz@...
 

I am working on the Aufbau project. I thought I was knowledgeable about
WWII; however, I want to know how someone in US or elsewhere learned
of the death of a relative in Theresienstadt or during deportation
or elsewhere in Germany. There are several Aufbau obits of these
persons--often families. As always, thanks in advance!

CA explaination #general

Trudy Barch
 

Hi Genners,

Will someone >from LA area, please help me.

I am looking for a marriage that took place in LA or one of the communities
nearby. The Jewish gal converted prior to marriage and got married in the
church. As far as I can remember, this was in the mid to late 1960s, when
she was in her early 20s. I know her maiden name but never heard what the
husband's name was (first or last).

To make matters worse, she died a very short time after her marriage with
the services in the church, possibly late 1960s. But not knowing her
married name, I am at a major 'brick wall'.

What other counties, other than Los Angeles, are in the vicinity?

Are any vital statistic records online?

I search many, many years ago, without any luck, and thought I might try
again.

Thank you, Trudy Barch, Chicagoland

First Name Hodes #general

My mother's first name was Hodes. I am wondering if anyone might be
able to shed light on the origins of this name. When asked her Hebrew
Name I would always get, "my name is Hodes." That was the end of the
conversation. She was named after her grandmother also named Hodes.
(pronounced Odd- ess). Her friends when she was growing up called her
Alice. (rural Vermont)

My grandparents were >from Vilna, Minsk, Pinsk. My grandparents were
from large familes and they had large families and everyone was named
for deceased relatives, but I never seemed to understand why there were
no "Hebrew" names. Perhaps I did not ask the right questions or
perhaps they simply didn't know or care.

A Cold Case Needs Heat #unitedkingdom

EEllman@...
 

I have been trying in vain to locate any information on my
great-grandmother, Rebecca COHEN, her parents and siblings when they lived in
the UK.
Perhaps someone can help me.

A. Facts and what I believe to be facts.

My great-great grandparents Israel COHEN (c. 1865) and Av__de COHEN (c.
1862) were born in Eastern Europe (perhaps Galicia) and lived for some years
in England before migrating to the U.S. I do not know when they arrived in
the U.K. or where they lived in the U.K. I believe the family lived in
London although some family speculate Liverpool.

My great-great-grandparents had five children: Rebecca COHEN (c. 1892),
Jennie COHEN (c. 1894), Gertrude COHEN (C. 1896) Benjamin COHEN (c.1900), and
Rose COHEN (c. 1901). The preceding information is >from 1910 U.S. census
data which notes that all children were born abroad and that the family
immigrated together in 1900. However, family legend has then arriving in New
York to learn of the death of Queen Victoria. This means they would have
had to leave England before but arrive shortly after Jan. 22, 1901. If so,
there is a likely discrepancy in the birth of the last child, Rose COHEN,
who was noted in 1910 being born in 1901 overseas (unless she was a newborn
at departure or born on ship).

B. When did my great-great grandparents arrive in the U.K.?

There is an 1892 London birth at 33 Great Garden St. for one Rebecca COHEN
to an Israel and Maria COHEN. The birth year and the father's name
correspond to known facts. Family legend suggests Maria's name -- at least in
the U.S. -- was Anna so this may not be their record. I could not find any
likely U.K. census matches in 1891 for this family. Question: Would there
be a record of their arrival in the U.K.?

C. Where did my great-great grandparents and their children live in the
U.K.?

As noted above, it is possible that the family lived at 33 Great Garden
St., but that is far >from clear. Would there be some other non-census
information indicating where they lived?

C. When did they leave?

I believe the family left England for the U.S. in 1900 or very early-1901
so there would be no 1901 census information for them. Many searches of
U.S. immigration information has turned up empty. I cannot find them on a 1900
census here either. Would there be some record of their departure >from
England?

I am most grateful for any assistance.
