Native American connections #usa

Ellen Barnett Cleary
 

I am in possession of a family tree and I am trying to find out where I
might find original primary source materials that might help me verify
what it says.

The tree I have mentions families I am finding on the internet but not
the specific people I am researching.

This is what my tree shows.

Sehoy MARCHAND, a woman of Creek Indian heritage, and Lachlan
McGILLVRAY, a Scotsman, had a daughter, Josephine, who married A.
CORNELLS. The daughter of this marriage, Taloumy or Claire. CORNELLS,
married a man with the last name WEIL, a German who arrived in the US in
1789 as a factor for McGillvray's of Edinburgh.

Mr. WEIL and Taloumy or Claire CORNELLS returned to Germany, where they
died after having 2 sons, Jacob and Henry WEIL, in Oberlustadt, Bavaria,
who immigrated to the US and settled in Montgomery, Alabama.

On the internet I have found links between the McGILLVRAY family and the
CORNELLS family, but nothing about Josephine McGILLVRAY, A. CORNELLS or
Taloumy/Claire CORNELLS.

I have been told that Alexander McGILLVRAY (son of S. MARCHAND and L.
McGILLVRAY) wrote a diary. I am wondering if anyone has some advice for
me as to how to find where it might be now.

I would also like to find out if McGillvray's of Edinburgh is still in
existence and where the records of this company might be found. Is it
possible I can find some information about their employing Mr. WEIL?

If you have any thoughts about the veracity of this story and/or if you
have any suggestions as to how I can research this, I would be most grateful.

Jewish lawyers in Munich #germany

Lande
 

I have come across an undated (probably 1930s) five page list of Jewish
lawyers in Munich. The list contains no other information than names.

If there is anyone sufficiently interested as to digitizing this list for
Jewishgen I would be happy to mail the list to them.

Rosenstrasse - vigil and protest by Aryan spouses at incarceration of Jewish spouses by the Nazis #germany

Dave Lichtenstein
 

Dear All

Yesterday I watched a movie entitled "Rosenstrasse" screened on the Special
Broadcasting Service (SBS2)in Australia. This movie was based on true
facts which occurred in 1943 in that area of Berlin. Given the Nazis
predilections for keeping records, I was wondering whether there are any
records available of the Jewish spouses released to join their non-Jewish
(Aryan) spouses? Does anybody know. With many thanks in advance.

Dear Madam, dear Sir,

In my request for family films I forgot to mention that we are also looking for
photographs with the same subjects. These photographs will be used for the same
purpose. In the present museum, there is an installation with family photographs.
On a nearby computer visitors can look up the individual stories of the families
portrayed. We are not going to do completely the same, but it will probably be
quite similar.

Thank you very much in advance,

Kind regards,

Liesbeth Vantorre

I am a researcher at the University of Antwerp and a temporary staff member
of the Jewish Museum of Deportation and Resistance in Mechelen, a city
located between Antwerp and Brussels in Belgium. ... a new museum is being built
... In this museum the very particular Belgian war situation will be highlighted.
I am responsible for the audiovisual material, more specifically, for the film
material.

what should I do? #general

Trudy Barch
 

Please give me your opinions and thoughts.

I recently found a cousin using Facebook (YAE) Her biological parents were divorced
and her father (my relative) remarried a lady with children. He is now deceased.

The young gal is telling me strongly not to include the 2nd wife or her children.
She says the 2nd wife was a mean person and they have not spoken to her since dad
passed away. What do you recommend I do? Respect her wishes and forget the 2nd
wife. Or explain that is not true genealogy work. But then I would probably lose
her contact and family information.

Thank you for everyones input on this.
