Seeking GERECHTER in Israel #germany

A & B Algaze <Algaze@...>
 

I am looking for the descendants of two daughters of Leo GERECHTER who was
born in Germany, worked as a baker, survived Auschwitz, and emigrated to
Israel where he died after 1947.

The daughters were both born in Germany and emigrated to Israel. Their
names were Liddie and Miriam. Miriam would have been born about 1923 and
married a man with the surname of Sherman.

If anyone has any information on either of these GERECHTER daughters, please
let me know. With many thanks,

Barbara Algaze Los Angeles, California Algaze@comcast.net

Adolph HERZ from Terra Haute, Indiana and Baden (?) Germany #germany

A & B Algaze <Algaze@...>
 

I am looking for information regarding the German ancestry of Adolph HERZ
who lived in Terra Haute, Indiana. He arrived in the US about 1866 via New
York and settled in Indiana pretty soon after his arrival. He was betrothed
to Pauline EINSTEIN before he left, and she arrived about 1870, also into
New York. They married about 1872 and had three children, two girls and a
boy by the name of Milton.

Adolph HERZ was a prominent member of the Terra Haute business and Jewish
community and there is a lot of information about his Indiana business and
philanthropic activities available. I am looking for any German connections
for either Adolph HERZ or Pauline EINSTEIN. I have reason to believe that
they came >from Baden, but have no additional data besides that.

I was unable to find any connections on the JGFF or the Family Tree of the
Jewish People.

Any assistance would be ***greaatly**** appreciated. Thank you,

DAUST family from St. Louis, Mo.; seeking descendants #usa

Martin Fischer
 

My great-grandfather's brother, Adolf DAUST, whose name was originally DAUS,
was born in about 1856, probably in Wongrowitz, Posen, Prussia (today:
Wagrowiec, Pila, Poland).

Adolf DAUST lived in St. Louis, Mo., >from 1883 through 1906, after which he
is believed to have returned to his homeland of Germany and lived in Berlin,
where he was the second president of the Wongrowitzer Landmanschaften.

During his time in St. Louis, Adolf married Henriette SACHS in St. Louis in
1884. They had two daughters, Mollie, born in about 1885, and Fannie, born
in about 1888.

For their first few years in St. Louis, Adolf had a store selling notions,
then he shifted to specializing in selling hats (in partnership with a man
named Theodore Marglous). (Adolf's brother, my great-grandfather Salo DAUST,
first appeared in St. Louis in 1895 as a dry goods store owner.)

By 1904, Adolph had move up in the world as he became the vice president of
the Washington National Bank in St. Louis, a position he held until 1905.

In that year, according to a ship's manifest on the Ellis Island
Foundation's database, Adolf and his wife and daughters returned >from a
visit to Europe. Adolf is listed as a U.S. citizen and "retired merchant"
whose "last permanent residence" is listed as Wongrowitz and whose "final
destination" is St. Louis, Mo.

If in 1906 he returned to Germany for good, I would like to find out if
anyone knows what became of his two daughters and whether they have any
living descendants. Did they go with him and his wife back to Germany or did
they stay in St. Louis or elsewhere in the U.S.? Mollie DAUST would have
been age 21 in 1906 and Fannie DAUST would have been age 18.

INTRO - researching KARPLUS & MAKOV family #germany

KARPLUS Hermann <HermannKARPLUS@...>
 

Hello GERSIG Genners,
I just joined the group after the fabulous 24. IAJGS in July 2004 in
Jerusalem. I have been doing genealogy research as of 1976. I consider
myself to be a novice in doing German Genealogy research; there
are some connections, though.

I live in Vienna, Austria, my native language is German; I also know English and
a little Hebrew. I consider myself a intermediate in using a computer, but my
experience in using the Internet is limited.

I do have a Family Tree as of 1640, which I recently managed to update and
distribute. At the IAJGS Conference I learned that I have only sratched the
surface.

The KARPLUS Family lived in Hotzenplotz (Osoblaha). At least one branch of our
family may have originated in Spain ( Amsterdam). And we are sure about a Polish
and a Galician background. So I also joined BOHMOR SIG and GESHGAL.

My primary goal is to find out about all possible relations to similar surnames
like KARPELES, KARPLIS a.o. & MAKAW, MAKOFF, etc...
Besides Hotzenplotz I have no idea about towns and do not know
where to start. The Family Finder does not meet my needs.

Oh what a funny memory this brought back. When my husband and I
bought our house in 1949 the "New Mode" trend was brick walls and open
wood beams ceilings. Very chic at that time.

When my mother-in-law came to see it for the first time right after we
moved in (and we were the first owners as the house was being built in
the new sub-division) she walked around, looked and looked and then
called me aside.

"Joanie," she quietly asked...."did the builders run out of money?"
When I asked why she thought that, she explained that that was how the
houses of the poor people in Russia were built....brick walls and
beamed ceilings.
And the kind of bread poor people in Russia ate is now expensive and hard
to find. My mother's father called Russian pumpernickel "soldier bread"
because soldiers would gladly trade it for just about anything else.

are at least two such organizations in Jerusalem, one for Ashkenazim, the

to go, if you know in which town your aunt lived/died, but it is crucial to
know that much, or to apply seperately to the organization in each candidate

Re: Searching for a grave in Israel #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz <idayosef@...>
 

Finding a grave in Israel can be a bureaucratic nightmare. My grandson is
trying to find the grave of his paternal great-great-grandfather who died in
1952. Death certificates give place of death, but not place buried. No one
in the immediate family seems to know, since there was some quarreling in
the distant past. One person said Gedera. The man in charge of the Gedera
cemetery told us that the books were a mess and some information totally
lacking when he took over a few years ago. It was impossible to get through
to the hevra kadisha of neighboring towns. Since my grandson is a persistent
sabra, we hope that he will finally find the grave!
