I am a German historian and journalist researching for Jewish families of the

Barntrup, Oerlinghausen etc.) between 1933 and 1945. Now I need help because I am
searching for the adress of Mrs. Dolly Unger in Israel. She is a sister of
Heinrich Herz, born 1900 in Blumenthal near Bremen.
Who can help?

ZYLBERMAN/ROTENBERG from Mlawa #general

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

I've just discovered a Zylberman link to Mlawa.
Boruch Jciek ZYLBERMAN (age 19) and his 18 year old wife Ryfka (nee ROTENBERG) had
a girl in Mlawa named Ryfka in 1864.

Boruch Jciek was born in 1845 in Swiniary and his birth was recorded in nearby
Chorzele. Zylberman is a relatively rare name in Mlawa and Ryfka's birth is the
first of a group that include Abram (1867), Dawid (1869), Berek Eliasz (1876),
Chawa Laia (1878), Chejwet (1881) and Chaim Mordka (1883). Note that I have not
yet ordered the Mlawa records for these but am assuming that they are the children
of Boruch Jciek and Ryfka since no earlier Zylberman records have been found in
Mlawa to date.

If this sounds familiar, please contact me privately at meyers01@comcast.net

SZPIRO & HERTZBERG from Przasnysz #general

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

I've just discovered a family link to the SZPIRO family in Przasnysz.

Golda KASTELBERG was married to Motel DZIEDZIC and their grandson Josek DZIEDZIC
married my great-grandmother's sister Szajna ZYLBERMAN.

After Motel died in 1848, Golda remarried in 1850 a Mosiek Hersz SZPIRO, son of
Hersz Jankiefowicz and Royza (nee HERTZBERG) SZPIRO. So Josek's father, who was
named after his father who died earlier in 1848, would have been brought up in the
SZPRIO household and would have known no other father.

Daytona Area Papers #general

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

Is there a genner in Daytona Beach with easy access to the a library with archives
of the Daytona Beach News-Journal, the Volusia Review, or the Flagler Palm Coast
Tribune ?

If so and you plan on going to the Library soon I would appreciate getting the
full text of two articles--( about an engagement and the subsequent wedding.)

Please email me for the exact citations.

Mount Chewron Cemetery #general

Jerome Seligsohn <jselig1315@...>
 

Old genealogists don't die; they transliterate. Working on archiving the papers of
the Bolshowtzer Arbeiter Lodge no. 517 IOBA today at YIVO Archives I encountered a
mystery which threw me into a researching tizzy. Chewron was not to be found
anywhere.
The jgsny website offered a Mtt Hebron bural site but no Chewron. Google was no
help. Finally, an exteremely bright and gifted genalogist hit on the solution.
Chewron was the attempt of the Yiddish speaking lodge to approximate the sound of
Hebron in English. The case was solved. The message is never give up on a name no
matter how ridiculous if may first appear to be.

Named for More than One Person? #general

Fran Segall <FranSegall@...>
 

Could someone please tell me if Jewish children are ever given a given-name for
more than one person? My Hebrew name is Feige. My mother's grandmother and my
father's grandmother were both named Feige. Both died many years before my birth,
although I don't know the years. I have no way to know which one I was named for,
but is it possible or likely that the intention was to honor both?

Help with Word Processing in Hebrew #general

Kenneth Packer
 

Diane mentioned Steve Morse's program that converts handwritten Hebrew to
"regular" Hebrew. I have another question that some of you might know the answer
to. Is there a good program for writing Hebrew within word processors like
Microsoft word or WordPerfect? Everything that I have tried has not worked
easily. I need something that will put the vowels in the correct place. My
Hebrew is very poor, and I can't read it at all without vowels. This way I can
insert Hebrew in the Family Genealogy Newsletter and other things that I do.

another lets you go the other way -- type in words using printed characters and
it displays the words in handwritten characters.

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone who knows of published research based on

or might be interested in some of the contents of this collection.

Hamburg Passenger Records #general

Ruth Hyman <ruth.hyman@...>
 

Hi cousins,
I am convinced that my two great aunts left with their mother (my great
gradmother) for the U.S. >from Hamburg. They came supposedly in 1902. I see 3
people of the right names and ages that came the same route through Boulogne,
Southhampton, New York. Does anyone know any way to see these records besides
paying $20 a pop on the Hamburg site? >from what I can see, the FHL films are only
for older arrivals. Also, does "direct" immigration mean these folks took the ship
all the way to NY? And-why wouldn't I be finding these passages on Ellis Island? I
have tried many times.
Thanks,
