The Tombstones Of Two Sets Of Ancestors VM6996-97-Rakoff/Steiner #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello to All

I have two tombstones photos just posted on Jewishgen. One is of
ancestors on my paternal side. Those would be Samuel & Celia Steiner.
The other is ancestors on my maternal side called David & Anna Rakoff.
I am curious if anyone can tell me what any of the markings mean or
translate any of the language thats written above their names on the
tombstones. I hope the pictures came out clear enough for you to read.
One was sent to me as a copy the other a polaroid.

Also if anyone thinks they may have further information about these two
sets of ancestors of mine please contact me.

Oppenheims Oppenheimers #germany

Laspalmasdave@...
 

Hello GerSig
I have recently joined the group. I am a writer and BBC journalist and live
in London.

My mother is an OPPENHEIMER and I'm contemplating a book project that would
describe the life stories of different OPPENHEIMs and OPPENHEIMERs over the past
200 years. The idea would be to illustrate two centuries of Jewish history
through the experiences of various Oppenheims/ers.

I have a simple question. Is there anybody out there with detailed knowledge
of any Oppenheims/ers in their family? Obviously the 20th century will be much
easier to cover, so I'm particularly interested in discovering and researching
stories of Oppenheims/ers in the 19th century. I would be grateful for any help.

Many thanks David Edmonds London UK Laspalmasdave@...

ZADIG or ZADOC Hamburg begining 19th century #germany

Micheline GUTMANN <m.gutmann@...>
 

In Hamburg, about 1800, there was a Dr ZADIG or ZADOG
Whose daughter Rebecca married Nachum Abraham, son of Abraham DRUCKER
from Altona and Hamburg. Nachum was born in Hamburg in 1761.
Probably, Rebecca was also born in Hamburg. (their daughter married
Veitel GUTMANN.) Does anybody know about this ZADOG family?

Searching WALDSTEIN/ROSENBERG/KATZ connections #general

Giltrip202@...
 

I am searching any information about the following people.
We have identified a Fanny/Feiga WALDSTEIN ROSENBERG (b abt 1858 - father
Sam Waldstein) Bronx, NY 1910 census as being married to Abraham Rosenberg.
There were several children : Boruch, Lena, Jennie, Isador. Frank, Minnie,
Samuel and a niece and nephew Solomon Waldstein (later WALDSTON/WOODSTONE) and
Menushe/Minnie living with them. The Rosenbergs are not traceable on later
census. Other names associated: father of Solomon Waldstein may be Hirsh
Waldstein who immigrated as a widower and later married a Rosenberg/Berg.

Because the Rosenberg names are so common it is difficult to trace them. I
am searching for any family that may be associated with these names. Also
a Morris Katz (or descendants) who immigrated to Uncle Waldstein, Worcester,
MA 1906 but with no further listings.
Please respond privately,
I thank you in advance for any consideration,

Hello. Over the last several years I have been trying to locate the only
unaccompanied children rescued >from the Holocaust by American individuals,
families and organizations. This is still a relatively unknown part of
American history. These children have become known as the One Thousand
Children, as this is the number of unaccompanied children believed to have
been rescued between 1934 and 1945 by bringing them to the US and placing
them with relatives and foster families, until and if they could be
reunited with their families. I am still looking for these "children" now in
their 70,s and 80,s. They came to America without their parents whom they
left in Europe or elsewhere to escape Nazi persecution and were up to 16
years old when they left. I would love to hear >from you if you are one of
these children and have not contacted me as yet. My thanks to so many of
you who have helped me in my search through JewishGen over the last years.

Use of search engines #general

David Kravitz
 

There have been a number of queries recently seeking information about
people, places and strange items. Perhaps a few genners are unaware of
search engines such as Google (www.google.com), Yahoo, Jeeves etc. Most
recently a question on a special challah yielded 51 entries in Google many
with perfect answers. Often a moderator directs a genner to the JewishGen
databanks for a town or surname.

If any genner needs a more detailed description of how to use a search
engine, please email me privately. May I also remind those trying to
research in the UK that I have a detailed article on the various resources
available. Again, please email me for a copy.

A cover story in the Oct. 21, 2005, issue of New York's Jewish Week is
headlined, "Shul Silent On Cemetery Database." It discusses the work of
Shane Wamsley, a Salt Lake City Mormon, to organize a cleanup of Bayside
Cemetery in Ozone Park, Queens, and to compile a database of its burials.
According to the article, the cemetery dates back to 1842 and has
approximately 35,000 graves.

The article, which appears online at

http://thejewishweek.com/news/newscontent.php3?artid=11569

mentions JOWBR (the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry) and quotes
JewishGenners Eden Joachim and Florence Marmor, as well as Bob Friedman of
the Center for Jewish History.
Those interested in Bayside Cemetery may wish to read Florence Marmor's
introduction to the Database of Galitzianers Buried in Mokom Sholom
Cemetery's Free Burial Area. In this article, Florence refers to Mokom
Sholom Cemetery (aka [also known as] Bayside Cemetery).

Although the accompanying searchable database consists of 11,500 plus
persons whose death certificates indicated at least one Galician parent
and/or listed Austria or Austria-Poland, the introduction gives a glimpse
into the lives of some of New York's indigent Jews in the years 1880-1901.
