Hello there,

My maternal grandfather, Max Polinsky (or variants), came to London,
England circa 1900. I believe he came >from the Bialystok area. He was
a tailor. He, and my grandmother, Annie, were sponsored by the
Strongwater family. I remember the names Maxie and Philip in that
family. They were butchers in the East-End of London.

Please contact me with any connected information.
Many thanks.

John Jacob Lyons

Johanna MarieAnna SCHULTZ & Alvin von KEISEWETTER/KIESEWETTER, 1800s #germany

Dear cousins,

Please contact me privately if you have any information regarding the following
and thanks very much for helping me find my ancestors and relatives. I know this
is alot to ask, but your help will enable me to either prove or disprove my
Jewish lineage.

One of the von KEISEWETTER/KIESEWETTER children was Alvin. [Aleph LamedVovYudNun…
I’m researching the possibilities due to the naming patterns and names given
during and after the Crusades and Napoleonic Wars.]

Alvin became “oberforester” in his father’s place, after his father was gored by
a wild boar, upon home >from graduating >from the University of Heidleburg and
married Johanna Marieanna SCHULTZ (b.1800, Schwartzburg-Katzhutte; d.10/26/1874,
Mankato, MN).

Alvin apparently changed his first name to "Albert" and adopted his grandmother's
name, (von) DORNBERG, upon arrival in the US, when he emigrated in 1847, leaving
his lands to be confiscated by the encroaching Prussian army. Alvin bought a
rather large looking home 1 ¼ miles NE of Mifflinburg, PA to which he brought his
family, the following year, 1848, and established himself in his profession as
Dr. Alvin Gustav Dornberg, MD.

(von) DORNBERG... I have no idea >from which region or town in Europe this family
lineage originates, however, there is a Dornberg town in the NE part of
Austria and I have contacted the Austrian SIG.

The von KEISEWETTER/DORNBERGs had 9 children: Clotilda (1821-1895), Leander
(1824-1868), Alvin Louis (1828-1900), Augusta (1829-1907), Bertha (1832-1917),
Louisa (1836-1912), Laura (1837-1912), Alma (1840-1918) and Theresa (1843-1929).

von EMMERLING & von KEISEWETTER, 1760s-1820s? #germany

C <beachwatergirl@...>
 

Dear cousins,
Please contact me privately if you have any information regarding the following
and thanks very much for helping me find my ancestors and relatives.
Have a great Pesach & Kul Tov...

Leander von KIESEWETTER (b.1760, Principality of Schwartzburg-Sondershausen;
d.1825?) married Frau von EMMERLING (b.?;d.?, unknown locations) and had at
least one son, Alvin Gustav von KIESEWETTER (b.1800, Principality of
Schwartzburg-Rudolstadt or Sondershausen; d.12/30/1879, Mankato, MN). I am also
looking for the von DORNBERG ancestors of either von EMMERLING or von KEISEWETTER.

Leander was “Keeper of the Treasury” and “Overseer of the Land”… he was the
"oberforester" of the Bavarian Forest and in charge of the treasury, before being
gored by a wild boar. One of his sons, Alvin, became "oberforester" in his place,
after returning home >from graduating >from the University of Heidleburg.

Christian MOESER/MOSER (1813, Hesse-Darmstadt) & Clotilda DORNBERG (1821, Bavaria) #germany

C <beachwatergirl@...>
 

Dear cousins,
Please do not dismiss the possibility of my family being Jewish, just because the
names aren't "Jewish" by your definition or understanding thus far. Throughout six
years of research, I've come across multiple references to "court-appointed Jews”,
"conversos" as well as those with Jewish roots who've become assimilated for one
reason or another. Even so, we know that generational ties through blood and
birth were the determining factors of the Holocaust, so blood lineage remains the
basis of connecting to the ancestors who walked with Moshe. So, unless you have
evidence to the contrary, it is quite possible that at least some of my ancestors
belonged to these categories. I know this possible, due to the Jewish traditions
I learned as a child at my mother's mother's home at Chanukah and the Jewish foods
I was taught how to make.

That said, please contact me privately if you have any information regarding the
following surnames. I know this is a big request, but your help will enable me to
either prove or disprove my Jewish lineage vis a vie connecting to ancestors
and/or relatives. Thanks so much! Have a great Pesach & Kul Tov...

Lucinda Patten beachwatergirl@... Los Angeles, CA

Like the DORNBERG name, I know nothing of the MOESER / MOSER name except that
Christian MOESER (b.3/18/1813 or 1815, Hesse-Darmstadt; passport marked
1836 arrival in America; d.1892, Cincinnati, OH) married Clotilda DORNBERG
(b. 12/4/1821, listed as “Saxony” in a census; and Principality of
Schwartzburg-Sondershausen in a dissertation; d. 1/1/1895, Cincinnati, OH)
and first made their home in New Berlin, PA.

Christian and Clotilda had 5 children: Alma (10/30/1850-3/23/1923),
Emma (9/12/1852-10/16/1930), Edmund(4/6/1855-12/1946), Clotilda (6/11/1857-1/1875)
and Louis (1/1864-?)

Later, after a succession of promotions by the US Govt as Civil Engineer in charge
of the Ohio River development, relocated >from New Berlin to Erie and then
Pittsburg, PA, before being relocated to Cincinnati, OH in 1871, where Christian
apparently died and one of their sons, Louis, took over the family home at
34 East McMillan Street.

Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive, # 85 #germany

Ernest Kallmann
 

The last issue (# 85) is finally off the press. Here is the summary:

Pierre Katz, the well-known Alsatian genealogist, has very recently left
all of us in sorrow. He was among many other feats, the finder of the
1808 name adoption lists and the author of their compilation, an
indispensable research tool for all those searching their ancestors in
Alsace and Lorraine.

** Families

Pascal Faustini stresses the prominent role of Jewish entrepreneurs in
the iron industry during the 18th century in Sarre, transforming a
profitable craftsmanship into a real industry. They often became tenants
and managers of the smithies owned by the counts of Nassau-Saarbrücken
and so built up their wealth. Family trees of the main families involved
are shown as well as the connections between them.

** Miscellaneous

Eve-line Blum cites several books by local historians (Dordogne,
Charente-Maritime) containing information about deportees and Shoah
victims that are not available at the Departement Archive. In another
section, she tells how she traced a family Greif deported in convoys 71
and 73 to Auschwitz thanks to several linked Internet correspondents.

Eliane Roos-Schuhl analyzes the Schwindratzheim (Northern Alsace)
Memorbuch of 1786. The original manuscript is kept at the Jewish
Theological Seminary of America. She identifies the copyists and the
sponsorer Nephtali Hirtzel Jacob.

Bernard Lyon-Caen tabulates and compares the data appearing in A. A.
Fraenckel's book and in the journal Bergha for the Jewish marriage
contracts in Uffholtz in the 18th century.

Philippe Danan gives the list of the 148 Jews paying the wool tax in
Algiers in 1832 as published in the Moniteur Algerien in its March 1832
issue. This tax was levied on the indigenous Jews and Muslims. The
amount of the taxes sheds a light on the economic situation of the
Jewish community at the time.

** Recent Events

Georges Graner, in ">from the webmaster", details the uses of the search
engine available on our website since January 2006.

Basile Ginger shows how the members of our society can be assisted when
searching for a naturalization docket.

Our library now hosts gravestone lists >from Jewish cemeteries in
France, compiled by various members, and the description of the content
of a CD-ROM about the Jewish communities of Bayonne and Saint-Esprit in
the 18th and early 19th centuries.

Hello GerSig,
I have just joined the group (and posted a request before introducing myself
I have been researching my husband's BROMBERGER family earnestly for the past
2 years. I have traced the family back to Adelnau, Poland and then followed them
to Berlin. I have the birth certificate of my father-in-law, Baruch BROMBERGER.
I've gone back another two generations with Lina nee NEUMARK and Bernhard
BROMBERGER (grandparents of my husband) and Gershon BROMBERGER and Hannah nee
DIENEMAN. Lina and Bernhard perished at Auschwitz. I have learned of many siblings
of Bernhard and have just recently contacted cousins discovered through the
records of Shanghai ship manifests.

While I am new to this list, I have been very successful in my internet research.
I am searching for some documentation of births and marriages and would love any
pointers in the right direction. Thanks!

Clarification: INTRO - researching STERN, ROSENDAHL, PLAUT - also WERTHEIM #germany

E Roth <tooter.ted@...>
 

I'd like to clarify information >from my previous intro note (copied
below).
In fact, the towns I referred to as "Frankfort," and "Wehrda," were
not sufficiently specified. Frankfurt is, in fact, Frankfurt a.M.

Wehrda is, to the best of my knowledge, the town in Hesse Cassel
near Fulda. Death certificates filed in Hartford, CT, variously
refer to family members as coming >from Hesse Cassel or Wehrda and use
these names interchangeably.

Thanks for the many replies I received which I am just now getting to
answering. I'll also take this moment to add the family name
WERTHEIM to my list of interests. again, multiple intermarriages of
STERNs, PLAUTs, and WERTHEIMs are involved, and I'm interested in
learning what connections exist between branches of each of these
families. Of special interest is Solomon WERTHEIM who married Adelia
STERN and settled (for reasons perhaps someone here can explain) in
Belle Plain, Iowa. Adelia was the daughter of my G Grandmother's
brother, Jacob STERN. Solomon was the son of my GG grandmother's
sister, Biena STERN WERTHEIM.

Ted Roth Washington Depot, CT <tooter.ted@...>

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group.
I have a special interest in the community of German Jews who settled
in Hartford, CT. My GGG Grandfather Solomon STERN came >from Wehrda
and died in Hartford in 1860. Four of his sons also emigrated and
were leaders in the Jewish community there, and my research includes
major corrections to the published records concerning this family.
My G Grandmother, Julia STERN, married Charles ROSENDAHL (later
ROSENTHAL) who came >from Frankfort. He served in the Civil War and
was First Selectman of Hartford when he died in 1902. His father,
Henry ROSENDAHL also came to the US and settled in NYC, but I know
almost nothing about him and have found few records. Numerous family
members intermarried with PLAUTs also >from Wehrda.
I'm also interested in connections between the German Jewish
community in Hartford and in Newark, NJ.
Within the next year or two I hope to make a journey to Wehrda and Frankfort
and am interested in any advice regarding research as I plan this trip.

below).
In fact, the towns I referred to as "Frankfort," and "Wehrda," were
not sufficiently specified. Frankfurt is, in fact, Frankfurt a.M.

Wehrda is, to the best of my knowledge, the town in Hesse Cassel
near Fulda. Death certificates filed in Hartford, CT, variously
refer to family members as coming >from Hesse Cassel or Wehrda and use
these names interchangeably.

Thanks for the many replies I received which I am just now getting to
answering. I'll also take this moment to add the family name
WERTHEIM to my list of interests. again, multiple intermarriages of
STERNs, PLAUTs, and WERTHEIMs are involved, and I'm interested in
learning what connections exist between branches of each of these
families. Of special interest is Solomon WERTHEIM who married Adelia
STERN and settled (for reasons perhaps someone here can explain) in
Belle Plain, Iowa. Adelia was the daughter of my G Grandmother's
brother, Jacob STERN. Solomon was the son of my GG grandmother's
sister, Biena STERN WERTHEIM.

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group.
I have a special interest in the community of German Jews who settled
in Hartford, CT. My GGG Grandfather Solomon STERN came >from Wehrda
and died in Hartford in 1860. Four of his sons also emigrated and
were leaders in the Jewish community there, and my research includes
major corrections to the published records concerning this family.
My G Grandmother, Julia STERN, married Charles ROSENDAHL (later
ROSENTHAL) who came >from Frankfort. He served in the Civil War and
was First Selectman of Hartford when he died in 1902. His father,
Henry ROSENDAHL also came to the US and settled in NYC, but I know
almost nothing about him and have found few records. Numerous family
members intermarried with PLAUTs also >from Wehrda.
I'm also interested in connections between the German Jewish
community in Hartford and in Newark, NJ.
Within the next year or two I hope to make a journey to Wehrda and Frankfort
and am interested in any advice regarding research as I plan this trip.
