Re: family relationships #general

How can I obtain a copy about family relationships, e.g. what are my first
cousin's children and grandchildren to me, etc.

Henriette Podell
The children of your first cousin are your First Cousins, Once Removed. The
grandchildren of your first cousins are your First Cousins, Twice Removed. The
"removal degree" is the difference in generations.

Henriette,

Are you using a standard Family Tree software program? I think most of
them have a built-in relationship calculator. I know Family Tree Maker
does.

Re: Anyone knew Hans ELSBACH/TRIXER? #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

David Regos asks if any one knew a magician: <"his full name was Hans Eric
ELSBACH, born .. Dortmund, Germany .. 1921 .... moved to Holland in 1939 .. was
captured by the Nazis and placed in concentration camps .... survived by
performing magic ...">

I first came across Hans ELSBACH when I screened all the magicians >from Vienna
and the former Habsburg Crown Lands of Bohemia and Moravia [now Czech Rep.]
listed here: http://www.jewsinmagic.org/all_mag.asp

Hans {TRIXER} ELSBACH joined the tragic band of people who somehow managed to
survive or extend their lives in concentration camps because their artistic or
other qualities endeared them to their sadistic captors.

Alma ROSE [*e* accent], born 1906, was probably one of the best known of these.
Her mother, Justine, was Gustav MAHLER's sister. Her father, Arnold [ne
ROSENBLUM] in Jassy, 24 0ct. 1863], was one of the leading musicians in Vienna.
One of Alma's [violinist] greatest admirers was the gruesome Mengele and it is
said that he mourned her death >from food poisoning.

Hans ELSBACH [Dortmund, July 26, 1921 - New Orleans, September 23, 1994] was a
jeweller - who ran a bookshop in Dortmund and taught himself magic in 1936
from a classic German book. Like Alma [a violinist and concentration camp
orchestra leader] Hans stayed alive by performing magic acts for the guards and
prisoners. In 1952, he moved to Rhodesia [which once had a sizeable Jewish
community] to become director of a large diamond corporation. For Jews of
Rhodesia, see David Bloom's website: http://www.zjc.org.il/

On the magicians' website, you will find references to two books which hopefully
give more details. There is also some correpondence of ELSBACH with photographer
Eliot ELISOFON at the archives at the University of Texas, Austin:
http://tinyurl.com/qkztr

I have found that POTs have been written for two ELSBACH brothers >from Dortmund
or Hoerde: father Levy ELSBACH and mother Emilie nee GOLDSCHMIDT:

1. Julius [dob 27 Nov. 1882] was married to Helene nee LOEWENSTEIN. You will
also find Helene and Julius have POTs submitted by their daughter, Hilda
GOLENDER and nephew Hans HEIMANN in Israel. Walter, son of Julius & Helena; born
Dortmund 1913 has POT submitted by Hilda GOLDNER [sic] & Hans. Multiple POTs
for each.

3. Willi - single, an engineer has 4 POTs with photographs - [dob 8 June 1884].

I suspect these are relatives of Hans ELSBACH. Julius had a shop - perhaps that
is the jewellery shop Hans trained at? One recent testimony submitter [reseacher}
is Alex SALM who lives in Germany and is a survivor.

Celia Male [U.K.]

Footnote: Search Yad vashem for ELSBACH Dortmund, Hoerde and Koeln to find all
these POTs. We remember all these victims here today.

Descendants of Beile Sossie ZUCKERMAN and Chaim Leib FREUND #general

Leah and Eli Teicher
 

Dear Genners,
Beile Sossie ZUCKERMAN was married to Chaim Leib FREUND, in the mid 19th
century. They had a daughter named Sarah Leah. All were born and lived in
Chyrow, Ukraine. These details are given in JRI Poland.

Chaim FREUND left (then) Poland to the U.S.A he was 44 years old.
Chaim FREUND was born on 1867, came to the U.S.A on May 31st 1911 (Ellis
Island data). He declared he had come >from Chyrow and that he had left there
his wife Beile Sossie . He also added that he had come to his brother in law
Itzchak (Isaac)ZUCKERMAN, who to my opinion was his wife's brother.
Since my paternal family is ZUCKERMAN >from Chyrow I wonder if they had more
children, if BEILE had joined him, and most important -
Who are their descendants?
I assume Beile and Itzchak ZUCKERMAN were my great grandfather's (Menachem
Yehuda) brothers. Mainly because OF 2 REASONS:
1) Many of our cousins have those private names: Beile , Isaac, Leah, Sarah.
2) Chyrow then a little village with a large ZUCKERMAN family there

I hope someone has any idea how to look for them, or knows any details. I
would appreciate it very much.
Happy Purim,
Please answer to anafa-e@zahav.net.il

Judy Izenberg and Jay Sage, two members of JGSGB, will share their experiences
in planning family reunions. After carrying out the research to identify and
locate family members, it is a great joy to meet them face to face. If you've
never planned a reunion, it can seem like a daunting task, but if you plan
ahead, it can be a wonderful experience both for you and for your relatives. The
speakers will cover both the general principles of running a reunion and also
some of the details, such as designing name tags and producing wall-size family
trees.

Izenberg, who is currently a co-president of the JGSGB, has been doing research
since 2000 and helped a friend plan a reunion in 2002. Sage, a past co-president
of JGSGB, has been doing research since 1996 and organized the genealogical part
of a family reunion held in August 2000.

Directions to Gann Academy: Take Route 128/95 to Exit 28 east. Follow Trapelo
Road 2.3 mi. east (toward Belmont) and turn right onto Forest Street. The
entrance to Gann Academy is 0.4 mi. further down the road on the left. >from the
east, take Trapelo Road to Forest St., which is the 3rd street on the left past
the National Archives. For maps and detailed directions, visit our web page at
gann.jgsgb.org.

Admission is free for members, $5 for non-members.

SIG Posting Locating Polish Town #warsaw #poland

Moore, Phil MAJ <Phil.Moore448@...>
 

Dear All,
I have recently traced my great grandparents to Poland. This, I managed
through the UK 1891 Census. Within this, their birthplace is written as
'Warslow, Poland'. As many of you will understand, this is based upon
the Census Enumerator's interpretation of how this sounded in English
but with a Polish accent. It would have been written phonetically. I
cannot trace a town as it is currently spelt and therefore have had to
look at alphabetic variations as I have no idea how certain letters are
pronounced in Polish. This has thrown up quite a few possibilities
spread across the whole of Poland and still left me some distance from
the truth. Therefore, I hope that with your help, and with the opinion
of those that know the country/language well, the actual town may be
identified. Any thoughts gratefully received.=20

Many Thanks.
