Judith Elam
 

I am searching for descendants of the following relatives, all born in
Berlin. The surnames are listed on JGFF. I have ordered some Mormon films!

1. Paul HAHN, born June 20, 1858.
2. Clara HAHN, born August 19, 1859
3. Rosa HAHN, born May 9, 1864
4. Theodora NATHAN and Salomon MICHAELIS, married Movember 1, 1859
5. Helene NATHAN and Abraham Adolph BRAUN, married December 23, 1868

I am also looking for relatives of the parents of the HAHN siblings.
Their parents were Leopold HAHN and Zerline WEINBERG, who were married in
Berlin and died in Berlin.

I received the information above >from the Geheimes Staatsarchiv, Preussicher
Kulturbesitz, e-mail gsta.pk@gsta.spk-berlin.de who have been most helpful.
The information was found in the Juden und Dissidentenregister of Berlin
1812 - 1874. They charged me 64 euros for 2 hours' research.

Do you recognize any of the above names on your tree? If so, please contact
me directly at elamj@hawaii.rr.com

Reversing Gears: How To Find Living Relatives - SITE CITE #germany

Martin Fischer
 

I have written a how-to article for the GenealogyArchives web site that explains
how to use family history research techniques to track down previously unknown
living distant cousins.

It includes a case study that started with my discovery of an 1886 obituary
of my great-great-grandfather in a St. Louis Jewish newspaper and culminated
in my being able to contact two living brothers who are my third cousins

You will find the article at http://tinyurl.com/yfg5pln

Another article I recently wrote provides a step-by-step introduction to ge=
netic genealogy. It can be accessed on the eHow web site at:

more on Marx GUGGENHEIMER brick wall #germany

Dottie Miller
 

A sharp Genner looked up the family in the book, "Juden in Breisach", by
Hans David Blum that details the Jewish families of Breisach,
Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. Mr. Blum wrote that My GUGGENHEIMER
ancestors came >from Waldshut, near Basel, Switzerland, which confirms
the oral history told by present-day descendants who lived in Ihringen,
Baden-Wurtemberg, till they were deported by the Nazis in 1940.
Waldshut, I am told, was closed to Jewish settlement during my ancestor
Marx GUGGENHEIMER's lifetime but neighboring Tiengen was not.

So, does anyone know how to access Tiengen life event records >from the
late 1600s to the mid 1700s?

For the Family Historian, a Song of Thanksgiving #poland

Irwin Keller <irwin@...>
 

Hello Fellow Jewish Genealogy Folks,

I've been at this genealogy stuff for a bunch of years now. I've made
family history discoveries, stalked long lost cousins, created a
Shtetlinks site, visited the Old Country - the whole bit. Sometimes I
feel like family members can follow the intricacies and are excited.
Sometimes I feel like I'm doing this all alone.

Recently, my third cousin Alden Solovy wrote a Psalm-poem in my honor,
which moved me not only because of its depth and beauty, but because
through it I realized that even if the relatives don't respond to each
pronouncement of the family historian, they nonetheless see the
importance of the work and are grateful that someone in the family is
doing it. With Alden's permission, I'm sending it on to all of you,
the historians of your families, as an offering in praise of your
dedication, and as a continuing encouragement. If you have feedback,
you can email me privately and I'll pass your messages on to Alden.

I wish you all a happy new year and much ongoing success in recreating
our past and reimagining our future.

Irwin Keller


For the family historian,
A song of thanksgiving.

Guardian of the family tree,
Keeper of our history,
We are blessed with your love and devotion,
Your tireless efforts to know our heritage,
Your work to keep us united,
Your joy in rediscovering brothers and sisters
Once separated, apart no more.
Your work reminds us to love and cherish the living,
To honor and praise the dead,
To embrace the lost,
To welcome each other home.

G-d of mystery and wonder,
Bless our family with strength and peace,
Wholeness and love,
Health and prosperity.
May our sons and daughters find joy under the chupah.
May our parents be given long lives and easy deaths.
Bless us with children, grandchildren and great grandchildren,
So that the generations expand,
A wondrous celebration of Your gifts.

Blessed are You, G-d of our mothers and fathers,
Who delights in family wholeness and love.

Re: Suggestion for searching modern names in US #general

Bernie & Marlene Dobrin <dobrins@...>
 

Use Google to find unusual names or any name. Put the name in quotes
and google it. Ora Leshem posted a request for information about a
family named Lasri in Florida. I put the name Lasri in quotes "Lasri"
and many listing came up for the family. Many of them >from Facebook and
other websites. If you also know the first name you can scan through
the search results to find the correct family. If you just know the
last name then email all the individual search results in hope of
making some connection.
