Families Bonnewitt, Bonnewett, Bonavid, Born. Strauss, Mayer #germany

Elizabeth Levy <levyliz@...>
 

I have been left with a treasure and don't know what to do with it.

My great great uncle's wife died a few years ago in Sweden and left me with
ALL the family photos and all family papers. My girlfriend just came to
visit >from Stockholm carrying 6 kgs of photos! Imagine my excitement.

On the other hand, imagine the frustration... There is nothing written on
the backs of 99.9% of the photos! If I can give any advice to people today,
it's label your photographs!!!

I have been able to recognize the photos >from my side - my uncle's side - of
the family, but want to find someone who can recognize my aunt's side.

The papers also came with an old typewritten family tree for her mother's
side of her family. I'm currently putting that in the computer but would
love to pass it on to someone reaching those names. The familes are
BONNEWITT (also known as BONNEWETT and BONAVID), BORN and STRAUSS. The
father's family is MAYER although no tree is available for the MAYER side.

BONNEWITT, BORN et al started off in Eichloch Rheinhessen.
STRAUSS in Freilaubersheim, Rheinhessen, later Dromersheim.
MAYER in Langenlonsheim and Laubenheim.

If these names or places are familiar to you, let me know and we'll try to
find a connection. Thanks.

INTRO - Seeking MICHAELIS #germany

Lorraine Garcia <max.geneology@...>
 

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have just started doing genealogy research. I consider
myself to be a novice in doing German Jewish Genealogy research. I live in
Baltimore, Maryland, USA. My native language is English. I consider myself an
expert in using a computer. My experience in using the Internet is extensive to
intermediate.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of my grandfather
and great grandfather.

My primary research goals now are to find out more about the rest of my ancestry.
The family names and towns that I am researching are:

- My mother Eveline Ursula MICHAELIS was born in Charlottenberg,
Germany, (I believe 104 Wilmersdorfer Str.) in 1925. She came to the US
in 1926 with her parents.

- Her father was Max Edgar MICHAELIS, born 1895 and died 1972 in New
Jersey.

- My great grandfather was Max Paul MICHAELIS, born 1866 and died at the
hand of the Nazis 1944.

A possible Jewish heritage for our family is something that is entirely
new to us and my mother and I hope to find out who we really are.

DEADLINE REMINDER: September 20, 2005 for the Obermayer German Jewish History Awards #germany

Arthur Obermayer <obermayer@...>
 

The German-Jewish Community History Council, GerSIG and the Berlin
Parliament would to remind you that the deadline for submission of
nominations for the the annual Obermayer German Jewish History Awards is
September 20, 2005. These awards are to be given to non-Jewish Germans
who have made extraordinary contributions to preserving the Jewish
history, culture, cemeteries and synagogues in their local communities.

Thousands of Germans have carried out such activities as volunteers
because they feel it is the right thing to do - the preservation of
Jewish material is one of the few ways in which they can respond
constructively to their country's horrible past. We, as Jewish
genealogists, have been the recipients of their good work. This award
provides Jews throughout the world with the opportunity to recognize and
honor German individuals who, in many cases, have devoted their
lifetimes to such important endeavors.

The deadline for submission of nominations is September 20, 2005.

Many of you previously submitted worthy nominations. Those nominees who
have already received Certificates of Commendation are prime candidates
for this year's awards, and will only require updating of the submissions.

This will be the sixth year for such awards, which will be given on
January 25, 2006. Each awardee and their spouse will be invited on an
all expenses paid trip to Berlin to receive the award at the Plenary
Chamber of the Abgeordnetenhaus, the home of the Berlin Parliament. The
honorees will receive a framed certificate and an honorarium to be used
for the furtherance of their work. Awardees' contributions will be
described to attendees and to the local, national and international news media.

These awards have in the past received extensive coverage in American
newspapers, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Miami
Herald, and the Boston Globe. It has also received coverage by the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, the Associated Press, and a great many German
daily and weekly newspapers, as well as specific articles in American
Jewish weeklies, as well as numerous overseas newspapers, such as
Ha'aretz and the Jerusalem Post.

If you know someone who may be appropriate for nomination, further
information -- including the Call for Nominations and profiles of
previous award winners and the jury -- can be obtained at:

http://www.obermayer.us/award

Remember that the deadline for submission of nominations is September 20, 2005.

Response from Romanian Archives #romania

arnonh@tapuz.co.il <arnonh@...>
 

Hello, dear colleagues!

After the update >from our dear co-ordinators regarding the National
Archives of Romania (July 2005 to this mailing list under the title: "Las
Vegas report and important announcements!", I sat down and wrote a letter
to those archives.

I wrote in English with all the details needed and sent it by fax,
according to the instructions given in the mentioned message. The fax was
sent to the main offices of the archives in Bucharest, regarding two areas
of interest: Galati and Cluj (and specifically the village of Huedin)
For make it clear, I specifically asked for BMD records of specific persons
- >from the second half of the 19th century >from Galati, and >from the
1850s-1920s >from Cluj.

The answer >from Galati
----------------------
A week after the fax was sent to Bucharest, the director of the Galati
branch sent me a letter in Romanian. The letter said that my request has
been recieved and they will be glad to help me WHEN I COME TO THE RESEARCH
ROOM in their Galati branch!

The answer >from Cluj
--------------------
The director of the Cluj branch sent me a letter in English about a month
after sending the fax. In it, he says that they found nothing regarding my
request, and that the material I'm looking for, might be found in the Town
Hall of Huedin. He gave me the exact address and to whom I may write my
letter, and so I did, just a few days ago.

I'll be glad to hear more reviews as for your experience with the Romanian
archvies as for requests sent after the update we've got.

Yours,

How about Queens? Lots of hotels (we do have two airports and many business
areas) that are very convenient to subways and express buses as well as the
LIRR which goes into Penn Station (34th St). Please be aware (if you are
not) that areas in Queens are not called "Queens" but names like Forest
Hills, Flushing, Rego Park, Forest Hills, Astoria, Long Island City,
Elmhurst, etc.

You can try locations in Yonkers, White Plains, Elmsford and as far north as
Brewster (although Brewster is at least an hour by train to NYC providing
there are no delays). I would recommend that you try anywhere in lower
Westchester County. There are plenty of hotels in White Plains, Tarrytown
and Elmsford which are going to be less expensive than those in NYC. Once in
NYC the fastest way to travel is either on foot or by subway.

In regards to the original posting,

You might also consider staying at the conference hotel, but sharing
the room with a roommate or two.

There is a lot to be gained by being in the conference hotel.
You can leave things in your room during the day, because it would be
easy to go get them if you need them.
You won't spend time traveling which could be spent networking or
doing research. (I've been in White Plains, and it's about a 40+
minute commute into NYC.)
Just being in the hotel (using the elevator or having breakfast, for
example), you might meet someone to chat with and compare information.
You will feel much more like "a part of the group".

Several years ago, I had a conference in NYC (not IAJGS). The other
rep >from our company suggested we stay in a nearby hotel to save
money. I found myself leaving evening events early to avoid being on
the subway or streets late. When I got to the hotel each morning,
people were already chatting over breakfast and coffee, and I felt
left out. And I felt I had to carry everything I might need during
the day, because I didn't want to take the time to go back to my room.

On the other hand, for the last IAJGS NYC conference, I arrived
several days early to do research. I found a roommate, and we stayed
near Chelsea, a less expensive area, much closer to NARA and the NYC
archives. We moved to the conference hotel when the conference
began, adding a third roommate. The hotel provided a rollaway bed at
no charge. (We also had a small refrigerator put in our room,so we
saved additional money by keeping snacks, drinks, leftovers, etc.)

Yes, it was "close quarters", but we didn't spend all that much time
in the room anyway. . . . We were fine.
