Re: Streuslers in Wiener Neustadt #austria-czech

Suzanne Richmond <suzierichmond@...>
 

Thank you to everyone for your help with my enquiry about my paternal
family. I had always discounted different spellings of Streusler, and now
have had a rethink and will try to find some links. Streuslers were in
Wiener Neustadt for many generations. I did visit with my father 40 years
ago. He would have loved the internet and researching himself. Anyway
thanks to all, and any info please think of me!!

If you receive the Digest version of a List, this may result in the whole
Digest being posted. This wastes bandwidth, which JewishGen has to
pay for. It also wastes readers time. Just clip out the part you are
responding to.

Vienna burial #austria-czech

Vitdoc@...
 

This thread made think of about my grandfather's cousin who went to Vienna
and was baptized Catholic, became a doctor and changed his name >from Marcus
Bermann to Victor. His father's name was Joseph. I would say circa 1850 to 1900.
He died doing an autopsy. Would he be buried in the Jewish cemetery? Where
would I start to find him? He had children that went to the USA.
Don't know any more about him.
Thanks Susan Boyer

estates near Grobin in Kurland #latvia

koshka <koshkacats@...>
 

Hi,

I just received wonderful information >from the Latvian Archives.
They said my Great-Grandfather, David GREENSPON, lived near Grobin
(which is in Kurland) for more than 20 years. He first lived in
the inn-house Staben of the Bukamens estate and then moved to
estate Mezheneken.

Does anyone have any information or clues about these estates?

It also says he lived in the "Oberbartau volost of the Grobin
district" in one place and "near Grobin" in another.

Was Grobin both a town and a district?

Is Oberbartau another term for Libau?

Thank you very much for any help and suggestions. I'm going to
Latvia in the Spring and trying to get as much information as
possible.

Best Regards,

Polina Olsen

Re: The Lack of Common Courtesy and how it affects the Usefulness of #general

anitac47@...
 

This has been a topic before.

I guess at some point you provide help for people because you can and because it is a
good or "right" (if you will) thing to do. My experience has been to nearly always have
rec'd acknowledgement. But it wouldn't matter if I did or didn't. People always respond
to my calls for assistance and that is what matters. The one good person makes up for
all of those with bad manners.

Courtesy - one last observation #general

ssroth@...
 

Hi all,
I for one have found that occasionally important messages emailed to me
have ended up in my very active spam file. Please give folks the benefit of
the doubt that this may have happened and check those spam folders carefully
before you delete them. I am hoping that explains some of the lack of those
important 'thankyou' notes.
Sincerely,

I have usually received tahnks and follow up. What is bizarre is that a
couple of days ago I received a nasty flame >from some genealogy
perfectionist who needs to get a life because I had answered a query about
Jewish origins by pointing out some websites with maps that trace Jewish
miogration patterns.

So not getting a response is not the worst thing that can happen ...

Dear group,

I would like to say one thing before someone
terminates this thread. I myself always send a reply
and "thank you" whether the information is useful or
not. However, I normally only look at messages that I
am interested in, or that have the same subject I
posted to the group. If someone responds with a
different subject, I may miss it. And yes, I once
found a response in my Trash bin that I had not looked
at. But I am a member of a lot of groups and can't
open and read every email.

The point is, is that it is possible that some
reposes may not be looked at if the subject isn't the
same. However for all those that are read, a response
and thank you is certainly appropriate.

Finally, whether you get thanked or not for a
response that is useful or not, you still perfumed a
Mitzvah, which is what it is all about.

With thanks for giving me the opportunity to reply,
Yehudah BenShlomo
