INTRO - Researching BERENZ Family #germany

Edna Berkovits <berkovitse@...>
 

Hi Everyone,
I am new to this list serve (1 week), though I have been on the JewishGen
list for almost a month. That's when I started researching my father's
side of the family, and have had wonderful luck finding a distant relative
who has done much research for many years, and has sent me an amazing
family tree.

After this wealth of information came my way, my mother expressed an
interest in finding out more about her father's family, since she and her
middle sister are the only ones who are known to have survived the
Holocaust >from that side of the family. Their older sister was Ilse
BERENZ. Last week I wrote to a Friedrich BERENZ in Freiburg (found the
address in the white pages of the Germany phone book), who may be related
through Max BERENZ (see below), and am hoping to get a response.

I read about the Theresienstadt Memorial Book in someone's letter to the
Goup, and wonder how to access it: My mother heard >from Erna MAYER's (sp?) mother, who did survive, that she had seen my grandmother, Emma
BERENZ,(born Weisbecker) in Theresienstadt.

My mother's email to me follows.

Thank you for any information you have.

Edna (Grunspan) Berkovits Teaneck, NJ

Also researching GRUNSPAN (Uhersky Ostroh, Czech Rep.; Wien); WEISBECKER

Since it is a snow day today and everything has been cancelled I'll try to
write down as much as I can remember.
I do not remember my grandparents first names nor do I know where they
were born. It is quite possible that my grandfather was born in Boenstadt,
I don't believe my grandmother was born there.
My father's older brother was Albert Berenz, born in Boenstadt, Germany,
date of birth unknown. He was married to Kitty Frank's sister and had two
sons. They moved in the 1930's to Holland, Kitty told me that my uncle
visited the United States >from there, but did not like it here and
returned to Holland. The family was deported and died in the Holocaust.

My father was either the second or third son. His name was Gustav Louis
Berenz (called Louis) born November 12, 1893 in Boenstadt. He died in the
Holocaust.

Leopold Berenz born in Boenstadt, date of birth unknown. He was not
married, moved in the 1930's to France, died in the Holocaust.

Max Berenz, born in Boenstadt, date of birth unknown (he was the youngest)
I believe his first wife's name was Kristel (she was not jewish) she
divorced him in 1936 or 37. I believe their children's names were Artur
and Isolde, they stayed with their mother. My uncle remarried, his second
wife's name was Erna Mayer, she came >from Darmstadt, they had twin boys
born approx. 1937-38, I saw them shortly before I left Germany, I do not
recall their names. They all died in the Holocaust.

I, as well as my sisters were all born in Boenstadt in the same house
where >my father and his brothers were born. My parents moved in either
1929 or 1930 to Assenheim where we lived until 1939.

I left Germany December 27, 1939 with a children transport via Italy and
arrived January 2, 1940 in Palestine. That's all for today. Love, Mom

Re: Emma Lazarus #general

Replying to Harold Lewin's query, Emma LAZARUS was born in New York City,
NY, on July 22,1849. She was the fourth daughter of Esther (NATHAN) and
Moses LAZARUS, a prosperous sugar refiner of Sephardic descent. In 1885,
she traveled to Europe with her sisters after their father died. She died
of cancer in New York City on November 19, 1887. Her sisters were Mary,
Annie, and Josephine.

Not my Sam Muskat #general

Laura M Gottlieb <lauragottlieb@...>
 

Dear Genners,
I inadvertently asked for and received the Social Security
application of the wrong Sam MUSKAT--i.e., of an individual who turned
out not to be related to me. The Sam MUSKAT whose application I have is a
self-employed man born in Russia but residing in Detroit, MI in 1958 when
he filled out this application. His parents were Norman MUSKAT and Fay
MARKMAN. If this person belongs in your family tree, please let me know
privately, and I will be happy to pass on the information to you.

Re: FRAENKEL from Oberglogau #general

Roger Lustig <trovato@...>
 

Dear William:
The first place I'd look is in the microfilmed birth, marriage, and
death records of Oberglogau (1847-1874) that you can view at a Family
History Center of the LDS Church. (The "Pinkus-Fraenkel Archive" you
cite in your notes probably used this source, given the specificity of
many of the entries >from around that time.) Note, though, that there
are many other records in that part of the world, that were *not* filmed
by the Mormons or by the Reichssippenamt in the late 1930's. The
archives in Opole have a good reputation, and the JHI in Warsaw may be
able to help you out too.

As for finding people in a published genealogy, keep in mind that the
name Fraenkel was very, very widespread. In Upper and Middle Silesia,
61 heads of household named Fraenkel took Prussian citizenship between
1812 and 1814. I have enough headaches with the 8 LUSTIG families.

However: about half of the FRAENKEL entries in the 1812 citizenship
register are >from Breslau. Only five are >from Zuelz, which might help.
In fact, there's an Abraham Isaac FRAENKEL of Zuelz on the list, No.
835. The Isaac FRAENKEL you have on your site could possibly be No.
867, who was living in Myslowitz (Kreis Pless) in 1812, but again, it's
hardly an uncommon name. One might check Zuelz records to see whether
siblings of Jacob (b.1809, Zuelz) were being born there, etc. in
1812-14; if so, one could rule this one out.

For your #73, Blume/Bertha WIENER, there are two WIENER family heads in
Zuelz (out of 19 overall): Aaron WIENER and Berel Kiefer WIENER.

By the way, I note that Isaac FRAENKEL is the grandson of Isaac
FRAENKEL, who lived for 47 years after his grandson's birth. Unusual
naming, but not impossible--one or the other might have had that as a
"street" name and been Issachar or Israel or any other name in the
synagogue.

...the land of the bean and the cod, where the FRAENKELs talk only to
CABOTs...

Amazing.

Mathildemwas probably born around 1850. She married Benedict Kohn, a
master brewer, and they were living at Bennisch, Austria (now Horni
Benesov, in the Czech Republic) in 1873 when their son Fritz Kohn was
born there. Fritz later changed his name >from KOHN to KERRY, and
emigrated to the US through Ellis Island in 1905. See

further details.

These folks are no direct connection to me, but I can't find Jakob or
Mathilde in the large Fraenkel genealogy, "Genealogical Tables of Jewish
Families", published in 1999 by Saur, or among the many Fraenkels
mentioned in Neil Rosenstein's "The Unbroken Chain" [1990]. Any
suggestions would be appreciated.
