German SIG #Germany HECKSCHER in Hamburg #germany

HHHeilbut@...
 

Auditorium,

Sarah Ferguson >from Auckland, New Zealand, asked for information about the
HECKSCHER family >from Hamburg. I will answer her questions off list becase
it would be tooooooo much for this forum. I informed myself about this Hamburg
family during my research about my own. There were marriages between our two
families so I have a lot of information!

The name HECKSCHER is believed to come >from the city of Hoexter on the river
Weser. The family was in Hamburg already shortly after 1600.

GASSMANN/KLEIN from BERLIN #germany

Carolyn Simon <cgsimon17@...>
 

I've inquired in the past about a ggf who was forced to flee Prussia, change
his name >from KLEIN to GASSMANN and move to KONIGSBURG (now Kalingrad)
when he found himself on the losing side of a coup in about 1848.

I have found a little more information: he was born in BERLIN in 1808. Is a
nyone missing a relative who matches this information?

I want to thank so many of you, in Canada, Germany, Israel and the United
States, who volunteered to enter German Jewish community names into Excel
spreadsheets. This is a tribute to GerSig readers. I have written some of
you and will wrote others as I prepare the paper lists. No more volunteers
needed right now.

Thank you so much all you helpful people. I received a great response
to my request and, having spent some hours on the computer today, have
added another 35 descendants to my great-uncle Jacob Posner's branch of
my maternal family....all >from a cousin's gravestone and, following
that, her death notices in the JC. I've also written to a person I
think is a wife of one of the descendants, on a well-known social site.
I am truly grateful that you are all so generous with your time and
effort. All the best, Myra.

What geographic area does Belarus cover? #belarus

suewelsh@...
 

Is it just me?

I have difficulty in being sure of what geographic areas are included in
"Belarus". Did the boundaries shift with time periods such as after the
Russian Revolution? WWI? WWII? Or is this a modern overlay of a
specific geographic area that doesn't change no matter what the time
period? . Is there duplication with other SIGs because of this?
