I am hoping that someone can tell me if the Alabama Society for the
Prevention of cruelty to Animals is still located in Birmingham, AL. In
1888, it was located at 216 20th in Birmingham and an ancestor, Nathan
Platshek, was the Secretary and Treasurer of this organization then. Would
appreciate any information including a present address if possible. Please
contact privately at "byrnea@...>. Thanks in advance.

This may have nothing to do with this list but I am at a brick wall trying
to do my family Genealogy so I am trying to answer a question I have all
ways had. What kind of clothes did my ancestors wear? So I am trying to do
a Genealogy of clothes of the Jews through the ages. I am looking for
pictures or stories of different types of dress for Jews if anyone has an
info or matter like that connect me privately at moshe@... . So
that I may be able to get a copy of this documents. Thank you for your help.

Wroclaw State Archive #poland

Jurgen Schwiening <schwiening@...>
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

Is there anybody who has any experience with getting certificates/documents
from the State Archive in Wroclaw? I have written several times to a Dr.
Pater but had no answer. Am I right in thinking that responses >from Poland
tend to be very slow?
It must be unsettling for Poles to get so many inquiries (hardly ever, I
think in their mother tongue) >from people who had ancestors in Poland and
who say to them for example 'This is where my grandfather used to live,
etc. and who keep using German names. I also fear that inquiries >from Jews
or on behalf of Jews may not always be welcome.
I have made contact with the "Bundesvereinigung der Breslauer" in Germany
and the "Heimatbund Reichenbach", also in Germany. While they were
initially very helpful, and they passed my questions on to the "Deutsche
Freundschaftskreis" in Wroclaw, the office there sent me a very short reply
(after a very lond time) saying that they are unable to help and they have
now stopped responding.

Dear Hadassah,

Thanks for responding. I wonder if the property archives which you mention
has a researcher who might be able to find information about my uncle's
restaurant. If so, how might I go about contacting him or her? The only
information I have is >from the 1929 Polish Business Directory which merely
lists my uncle as the reigistered owner.

my elusive ggm's birth record. The records included several 20th Century
documents. The file also contained some information on tenants.

You may also want to check the 1930's telephone books for Warszawa.
Several libraries have copies including the NYPL. It may not give you

Dear Rivka,
Thanks for asking your great aunt. Tell me more about your research on Wa

neighborhoods/establishments. Have you found anything at all on my uncle'

Thank you.

Dear Hadassah:

Your answer regarding Franciszkanska Street is indeed very interesting. I
was wondering if you could share with us what the "Property Archives" is,
where it is, how to contact and interact with them etc.
Thank you for any help about this.

My great great uncle, Chaim Blum, and his wife, Necha Mida Blum, who
originally were >from Wyszkow, owned and operated a restaurant located at

26 Franciszkanska Street in Warsaw.

I do not know of the restaurant, but I do know Franciszkanska Street very
well. During my three trips to Warszawa, I have made sure to check out
that street. It does not look like any of the buildings survived the war.
On the corner is a Franciscan Church and I assume possibly the origin of
the street name. Both, Nicole Berline (our coordinator) and I have
ancestors that lived on Franciszkanska street.

Desperately Seeking Margot SCHWARZSCHILD born 1922 Eisenberg, Germany #general

Genealicej@...
 

My distant cousin Alma GOLDSCHMIDT, an only child now in
her eighties, born in Germany who escaped aged 20 to the USA without
her SCHWARZSCHILD parents during WWII, is looking
for her nearest relative and first cousin Margot SCHWARZSCHILD.
Margot is also related to me.

She has searched once before for Margot, but
discovered nothing and has now given me written
permission to look for her nearest relative again.

Margot was the daughter of Alma's paternal uncle,
Julius SCHWARZSCHILD of Massenheim, now Hochheim
am Main, near Frankfurt, Hesse and Alma believes
she came to England with the Kindertransport circa 1937/8.

Margot was born in 1922 in Eisenberg near Worms. Alma knows
nothing more of her besides that she was on a Kindertransport
for refugee Jewish children, so of course it may be Margot went on to
live in any of a number of countries or settled in England.

The family is as follows:

Mina STERN (born July 11 1855 Heppenheim-1930
Massenheim, now Hochheim am Main, Hesse, Germany)
married Moses SCHWARZSCHILD (1845 Massenheim-1921
Massenheim)
Children:
Gustav (1883 Massenheim-1942) married Juliane (Julie)
LOEWENSTEIN. Both murdered Auschwitz-Birkenau
One daughter Alma (born 1919 Massenheim)
Kurt (1914 Massenheim-1990 Jersey City New Jersey)
married Lily
Siegfried (?Massenheim-?) No children
Julius (?Massenheim-?). One daughter Margot (1922 Eisenberg,
near Worms)
Frieda (?Massenheim-?) married Sol LOEWENSTEIN. Children
Martha married Herman BAUM.

To say Alma would dearly love to find Margot would be an understatement.
If anyone has any information, please do contact me.
