RESEARCHING OBERDORFER #usa

ADELE <aadatto@...>
 

Dear Geners,
My great grandfather came to America and I have not been able to
found out what ship he came on. He settled in KY and was married
1849 in KY. His wife's family came over and her father signed the
marriage certificate. I have all their children and information on her
family but no information on his siblings except one brother who
lived in Louisville and his children.

His name is Simon Oberdorfer and his wife's name is Hannah Weil.
His brother was Marx Oberdorfer. The Oberdorfer family came >from
Hainsfarth. Their parents were Nathan Hirsch Oberdorfer and Colla. I
was told there were many children. If anyone has information on
when Simon arrived, or any of his siblings, I would appreciate it.

searching for family circles #general

Eden Laikin <elaikin@...>
 

My name is Eden Laikin and I work for Newsday on Long Island. I am researching
and writing an feature article on organized "family circles" on LI and in NYC. I
am looking for people who have family circles and would like to be interviewed
for the story.
My own family circle has been in existence nearly 60 years and still meets
once a year. Although enrollment and numbers of meetings have declined over the
years, there is still a core group of family members that pay dues into the
organizarion (for the upkeep of the family grave plots), attend meetings and
share family news, etc. We are an actual organization, with a recording
secretary and all.
So far I have not found anyone else with such an organization still
existing in their family.
If anybody fits the bill and would like to email me, please do so at
eden.laikin@....
thank you.

Re: Ship Passenger Lists Lisbon-NYC 1941? #general

What an amazing coincidence! My brother-in-law Charles H. BRUNSWICK
just left my apartment for Los Angeles Airport to return to New Jersey
with his wife Lee. Last night, on a whim, I asked him when he came to
the U.S. >from Berlin, Germany, and this is what he told me:

Rudolph and Liesbeth BRUNSWICK arrived in New York City with their young
sons Charles and Fred on September 2 or 3, 1941, on the ss "Mouzinho," a
Portuguese ship that sailed >from Lisbon, Portugal. The BRUNSWICK family
travelled >from Berlin to Lisbon in a sealed train.

Charles said they were the last German Jews to leave Berlin officially
(this was during World War II). How lucky they were!

Please e-mail me privately if you'd like me to put you in touch with
Charles and Fred BRUNSWICK, with their permission.

Hi to all of you that have been so kind to me in the 4 weeks since my father
passed away. I have had to do alot of writing about my father, and the man

Suddenly, all of these souls that have a headstone and maybe some papers have
become so real to me. A part of me. I think it's a good idea for everyone
that is lucky enough to have parents, grandparents, etc. to write about THEM.
Don't we all want to know what our ancestors were like? I wish I had so much
more information about my great grandparents.
I'm still so very sad, but I just want to share this with you all. Write
from your heart because generations to come will truly appreciate it. Let's
back up our zip discs with good old pen and paper too.
Thanks again,

Polish equivalent of Smith #general

AviDov@...
 

A branch of our my mother's family,originally >from Poland,was given the name
Smith
or perhaps opted for it at Ellis Island.
They know it was very difficult to pronounce
but have no idea how it sounded..
One theory is that it may have meant " tinsmith" or "metal worker" in Polish .
Could that have been " ZIELAZO " or something close to that ?
Another chance is that it actually sounded like SMITH,in which case,what are
some of the Polish words or names to fit that possibility ?

They know that siblings of the senior David Smith who went to Canada did not
use
the Smith name,but they lost contact over 75 years ago.

Not much to go on,but always worth an honest try. Abe Nutkis

Re: Equivalent 4 Szaja, Ruchli,Marya or Maria..... #general

Sue Kahana <sue@...>
 

I'll take a stab at Ruchli - probably Ruchel, aka Rachel today, Marya,
or Maria would probably be Miriam, can't even venture a guess at
Szaja, sorry.

But, as everybody keeps saying, just because those SOUND like they
should be equivilent, doesn't mean that they are. I have a neice named
Miriam whose Hebrew name is Malka.... There really doesn't have to be
any connection whatsoever.

Good luck.
