Re: Dayan Bistritz, R' Uziel MEISELS (Sefer Divrie Uziel) #rabbinic

On 2004.05.12, Moishe Miller <moishe@langsam.com> enquired:

Does anybody have any information regarding the offspring of Dayan
Bistritz, R' Uziel MEISELS. [...]
Information on R' Meisels (aka R' Bodner Meisels) can be found in:

(a) Chachmei Hungaria by Cohen and at greater length with further
cross references in...

(b) Chachmei Transalvania (Part 2, Page 20) by the same author

(c) Cohen says that Dr. Avrohom FUCHS of Jerusalem is a son of
Yaakov, who was a son R'Uziel.

d) Dr. FUCHS is the author of Yeshivos Hungaria of which the first
volume (Is there a second?) was published in Jerusalem in 1978/9.
The flyleaf of this work names relatives who perished in the Shoah.

I do not know if Dr. FUCHS is alive and well. His work gives his
address in Jerusalem at the time. Please contact me privately if
you need it.

Thanks for the translations!! #poland

Mark Jacobson
 

I answered everyone personally, but I wanted to also
thank the group for all the quick responses to my
problem of translating the occupations of my
g-g-grandfather. It appears that one record says he is
a "rag picker", and his death record says he has no
occupation at all.

There was a Dr. FUCHS (I think it was Avraham) who wrote a two-vol.
book on Yeshivot. He lived in Jerusalem and he passed away a few

His wife is an english teacher who was a colleague of my wife.

Re: What happened to Annie and Susanne PARISER from Vienna #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Eva Heindl >from Austria is trying to find out what happened to her father's
family, called PARISER, >from Vienna.

Well Eva, the Jewish-gen SIG which deals with Vienna and Austria is called
Bohemia-Moravia [BohMor] and you might have a far better chance of finding
your family links in Vienna if you joined this group.

BohMor, as the name implies, also deals with the one-time Habsburg Crown
Lands of Bohemia and Moravia, where many of the Austrian Jews originated.
There are also many links with Galicia in the various BohMor databases.
Under the Habsburgs, Vienna, with a population of about 200,000 Jews, was the
centre of a huge Empire, making it one of the most important Jewish cities in
the whole world. The Vienna Jewish cemetery database is one of the most
important [if not the largest] Jewish cemetery databases on the internet.

I have found some members of your family on this database.

The BohMor website and SIG has, in fact, a much broader coverage than its
name suggests.

http://www.jewishgen.org/bohmor/

I do not promise, but it is worth a try.

Boston Passenger Lists Lookup at NARA, Please #general

Sarah Lasry <SrhLsr@...>
 

I'm looking for someone who'd be available to do a lookup of Boston Passenger
Lists at NARA, in Washington, D.C.

(I was informed that you would probably have to go to a NARA regional center
that had the microfilm. You could call the regional centers and try to confirm
that they have it.)

According to "Boston Passenger Lists Index 1899-1940
FHL and NARA Microfilm Catalog Numbers", the NARA Microfilm Catalog Numbers
for this passenger list are:

T790-67

which covers Mar. 4, 1921--May 21, 1921

The passenger list which I'd like to obtain is >from SS Susquehanna , arriving
in Boston (MA) on April 4, 1921.

Please e-mail me if you are able to help with this lookup.

Thank you.

Translation Help for a Yizkor Book #general

Carol Raspler
 

We believe this may be Russian - old Russian, as it appeared in 1618 in what
is now Ukraine:

"Sobranje Wokratce Stowec w Uhercach."
Can we get someone to translate for a Yizkor Book?
Many thanks to all, Carol Raspler, Delray Beach, FL

Finding Erna Koenigsbuch-Teichteil in a Haystack-A Success Story #general

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners,
I would like to report a success story which is a
result of a joint effort of dedicated Genners.
I became aware of a remote cousin of my late mother.
The relative was Amalie Teichteil-Koenigsbuch and I
found her on JOWBR. She died in Johannesburg in 1942.
I found in the National Archives of South Africa that
she had a daughter called Erna(born in Essen,Germany)
who got divorced in 1943 and >from another relative I
learned that she remarried in Capetown and had 2
daughters.
Well,I basically was looking for "Erna XXX who was
born in Essen,Germany and had 2 daughters in
Capetown".A search in Capetown didn't yield results
and I decided that may be she was not in Capetown.
2 Genners,Beryl Baleson >from Israel and Paul Cheifitz
from Capetown helped me.Beryl "combed" South Africa
through her contacts and Paul looked through the
archives. Last week Beryl informed me that an old man
of German origin knows a certain lady called Erna S.
in Johannesburg and gave me her phone number.There was
no answer >from that phone and considering her age(born
before WW1) it was not surprising. Paul did not give
up and finally got in touch with her when she returned
back >from a hospital.She gave him the name and phone
of her daughter with whom I spoke at length last
night.We found Erna!!!!
I salute you Genners for your relentless dedication!!!

More records puzzles (Russian signatures) #general

Sue Clamp <clamp@...>
 

I have uploaded some ROSENBERG birth records >from the town of Serock to
my web site and apart >from needing translations (they're in Russian),
there seem to be one or two discrepancies. There are 7 records altogether,
2 of which have already been translated for me (those for Brucha and
Gedalia). The ones that I need help with translating are for Bjejla,
Josjek, Gjerszjon, Ljejbka and Jakov Lieb. I am trying to establish
relationships between these and Brucha and Gedalia.
As I said above, there are one or two problems:
1. It seems that there are at least two (there are two different
patronymics, but some give none), if not three, fathers named Iciek or
Icek, but the signatures are inconsistent.
2. There is one mother called Sura Ryfka DROSER and another called Ryfka
DROSEN. Could these be the same person? I have found some data on the
JRI-Poland database regarding a Sura Ryfka DRUSZN and her siblings
(surname variously spelt DROSSEN and DROZEN). Her date of birth is
reasonably consistent with either one or both the above named mothers.
3. There is another mother on some of the records, whose name I haven't
yet deciphered.
Having the documents translated would obviously help with interpreting the
information, but I would also be interested in any thoughts about the
above issues.
