Polish Tombstones before 1800 #general

Marc&Carine Ryszfeld <marcrys@...>
 

Dear Jgeners
One of my RYSZFELD ancestor buried in the Warszaw cemetery lived between
1788 and 1840. He is probably of the generation that "invented" the last
name RYSZFELD, as there were no last names in Poland before the 1800s. His
father's first name is given on the tomb. I'm planning a day trip to the
cemetery. I will be looking for surrounding tombs to look for older members
of the family, although no last name would be given. What clues shall I be
looking for on tombstones to try and find other family members?
Were I to stay overnight, I may have some time to help anyone with a
specific query in the cemetery. Trip is planned for march/april at best.

Searching Israeli Phone Numbers in English #general

Arnon Hershkovitz
 

Hello, Dear Colleague.

IsraelPB.com is an English search engine for Israeli phone numbers.
Launched a year ago (and posted back then to this list), it seems that
this website has not been fully assimilated in our community. And it
definitely should be, as it is very useful.

You can read the story of the website and of its creator, Shaun
Waksman, a 28y/o Canadian-born who now lives in Israel (and a hobbyist
genealogist) in a post I've published in both Hebrew and English in
the Mishpachtoblogia blog:
http://mishpachtoblogia.co.il/?p=3126 (English version)
http://mishpachtoblogia.co.il/?p=3111 (Hebrew version).

Jewish Families of Michelbach an der Lücke, Württemberg #general

Bruno Huet <BrunoHuet@...>
 

Dear families,
Michelbach an der Lücke is a village in South Germany. Here, you can
find one of the oldest Temple in Baden-Württemberg. The jewish life
began about in 1556. You can find a french and german traduction of the
families story on this Homepage:
http://www.synagoge-michelbach-luecke.de/ >> (Gemeinde Wallhausen >>
infos in french).The english traduction will be soon finished and be
able to find on the same page.
Many families are emigrated between 1850 and 1932, principaly in North
America, Australia and some other countries. The story of this village
and this temple are dead with this emigration, this escape. The story
and the life are stoped but all these
families live yet.
I call you all together to help me to find members of these families
and build new contact with me. I should like continue the History of
these families and this temple through your reports, reports of joy but
also injury, harm and hurt.
If enough people help for this project, we could try to organize a
meeting with all family members in Michelbach.
I research follow families:
Paula DREYFUS born GRUNDELFINGER(1894), Maximilie(Maxi) EICHBERG born
OPPENHEIMER(1894), Albert ELKAN (1880), Klara (Clara) ELKAN born

Alphonse LAZARD #france

pierre28@...
 

Alphonse LAZARD
The dilemma is in the death Certificate of Alphonse LAZARD Paris 12,1861,
#2291 (09-Oct-1861).

According to the document this person died at 42 yo, was born in Bar-le-Duc,
and was previously married to Clemence BLACH. The place of death was
probably the Fondation Rothschild since one of the witnesses was living
there. Neither witnesses were relations.

I also have an Alphonse LAZARD birth certificate Gondrecourt, 1815,#1,
born 6-Jan-1815 in Gondrecourt, and married to Catiche BRACH of Saarlouis .

1) could not find any births of named LAZARD in the 10 year tables of
Bar-le-Duc.
2) Gondrecourt to Bar-le-Duc is 25 miles
3) information at death given by non family members is usually unreliable.
4) the fathers of Alphonse and of Catiche were both Butchers.

Do I merge these two? What would you do?

Viewmate 261 - Do you recognize? photo vs genealogy methodology #general

bette_sscf <bette_sscf@...>
 

Robert is really an optimist hoping that someone will recognize the people in the
photo! Luckily, he knew their names.

Methodology using genealogy research found the following documents:
~ Ancestry's US Public Records and Phone and Address Directories for Alex STEINITZ
born 1918 and Rose STEINITZ born 1920 living at the same addresses
~ Ship manifest arriving New York Sep 5, 1931 on the Bremen >from Bremen for Alex
Steinitz and Leon Steinitz, birth dates and address in Philadelphia
~ US World War II Army Enlistment Records for Alex Steinitz (single in 1941) and
Leon Steinitz (married in 1942) born Philadelphia, residence New York
~ SSDI lists matching birth and death dates in 2005 for Alex and Rose Steinitz in
Orlando, Florida and for Leon Steinitz in 1990 Miami, Florida
~ Miami Herald obituary one-liner for Leon Steinitz names cemetery and funeral home
~ Veromi lists relative of Alex and Leon named Ada Werner Steinitz, perhaps Leon's
wife
~ Anywho and Zabasearch list Ada W. Steinitz' current address and phone in
Hollywood, Florida
~ 1920 census index under STNEITZ lists Louis 36, wife Paula 36, Anna 7 born
Vienna, Austria, immigrated 1913, and Leon 5 and Alic 1 6/12 born Penn
~ Ship manifests dep Hamburg May 1 and arr New York May 10, 1913 on the Amerika for
Paula Steinitz 30 and daughter Johanna 2 , last residence Wien, Paula's parents S.
EISENER, to husband L. Steinitz in Philadelphia, birthplace Kostel, Austria*
~ Ship manifests dep Hamburg Oct 11 and arr New York Oct 23, 1912 on the
Kaiser Auguste Victoria for Ludwig Steinetz, Austrian Hebrew, last residence
Wein, wife Paula Steinetz 27 Ferdinandstr Wien, to cousin David Rosenthal? c/o
Leibner 225 University Place Woodhaven, NY, born Nildaburg? Austria
~ Naturalization index on Jan 26 1928 in Philadelphia for Ludwig Steinitz 44 and
minor children Lansi 16, Leon 13 and Alexander 9 list declaration, petition and
certificate numbers
~ Illinois Death Index lists Ludwig Steinitz birth and death dates/places,
cemetery name, occupation, spouse name and FHL film number

*Most likely Robert's EISINGER family >from Kostel, Moravia (formerly in Austrian
Empire, now Podivin, Czech Republic) is a spelling variant of Alex Steinitz'
mother Paula's EISENER family >from Kostel, Austria.

Suggestions include sending for Social Security applications and death certificates
for maiden names and parents' names, calling Ada Werner Steinitz' listed phone
number and contacting the Vienna Jewish Community for marriage records (see
