Family of Audrey DEBUSSO/Henry(Harry) GOLDSTON #general

Derek & Rosemary Wenzerul <Dandr@...>
 

Re: Audrey DEBUSSO (nee BARNETT)
Please could anyone suggest a daily and/or Jewish newspaper I could write to
in Buenos Aires asking for information on my cousin?

Audrey DEBUSSO (nee BARNETT) was born on the 18 February 1930 and I
understand has two children. She lives in Buenos Aires. Her husband may
have been non-Jewish (I am not sure).

Her father, Louis BARNETT was born on the 28 September 1886 in the East End
of London to Baron and Agnes BARNETT (nee Nunes-Martines). Louis had the
following brothers and sisters:
Rosetta (Rose); Joshua; Aaron (Harry); Nancy, Kate and Miriam.

I would love to get in touch with her and hope someone can suggest a
suitable newspaper I could write to.


Re : Family of Henry (Harry) GOLDSTON
Henry (Harry) GOLDSTON was the son of Rev. Abraham & Amelia GOLDSTON. He was
born on 15 February 1877 at 1 Sandys Row, Bishopsgate, London, E. He had
the following brothers and sisters: Rev. Nehemiah GOLDSTON of South-East
London Synagogue/teacher at Westminster JFS; Rev. Isaac GOLDSTON of New West
End Synagogue; Joseph GOLDSTON; Simeon GOLDSTON (Canada), Frances GOLDSTON;
Esther GOLDSTON and Marie GOLDSTON.
According to an obituary in the Jewish Chronicle of his father, dated 5
January 1906 it mentions the he was living in Idaho, USA. However, in the 8
September 1916 edition of the Jewish Chronicle he was then living in
Hoquiam, Wash.

I would love to contact his children or grandchildren.

Any suggestions on how to go about this would be greatly appreciated.

Surname "movement" from BAKSTANSKY to BAKSHT? #general

Ernest Fine <efine@...>
 

I'm curious as to whether there would be a reason for a man to change his
surname >from BAKSTANSKY to BAKSHT, possibly upon remarriage after his spouse
died?

I know that we have many variants of BAKSTANSKY, and I've seen name changes
upon immigration, or for name simplification, or to be more "Americanized,"
or to return to family roots. This particular change, if it occurred, would
have been around 1865 in Belarus, for an approximately 25-40 year old male.
The significant event would have been the death of a spouse, and a marriage
to a new spouse.

Likely event? Unlikely event? Impossible event? Ideas appreciated....

Wloclawek, Alexandrow and Ciechocinek #general

George Fogelson <fogelson@...>
 

My grandfather was in WWI and I have recently discovered postcards he
collected of the towns mentioned above dated 1918. They are specifically
of:

Alekandrow: ul. Dluga (2 street scenes) and train station

Wloclawek view of town center and market, the river and vista of city in
background, and the Bishops Palace. (Palac Biskupa)

Ciechocinek: the three postcards are of large villas: Willa Felicjanka,
Villa Janina and Pensjonat Zachela


If anyone wants xerox copies of these postcards I would be happy to do so -
I would request that you mail me a self stamped addressed envelope and I
will sned them on. As I live in the US, the postage would have to be in US
denominations. I think the postcards are historically significant to those
who may be researching these towns and I wthought it would be nice to share
them if anyone is interested.
Please respond privately and I will send you my home address.

Auschwitz survivors in Munich #general

Alter & Dina Ophir <alterdina@...>
 

----- Original Message -----
From: Lancy <lspalter@netvision.net.il>

Dear fellow genners,

I have found photographs of several relatives who survived
Auschwitz and were living in Munich since the end of WWII and up
to 1948, waiting to emigrate to the U.S.

Does anybody know if Auschwitz survivors were living in Munich in
an organized community or in a transitory camp? If so, would
there be records anywhere of such a community, its members and
when and how they dispersed?

Any ideas will be welcome.

Lancy Spalter
Kfar Tavor, Israel
Lancy,
Most of the holocaust survivors in Gemany and Austria after WWII lived in DP
(Displaced Persons) camps. The camps were supervised by UNRRA and were run
internally by the survivors. Some lived as individuals, but the majority
lived in groups according to their political affiliation with the respective
Zionist organizations and parties.
It seems unlikely that a group of Auschwitz survivors lived together as a
group on their way to the US.
