Re: Postausweiskarte #germany

Eberstadt privat <cpa-eberstadt@...>
 

The Postausweiskarte was an officially accepted document and had one
very special purpose during Third Reich: People who wanted to help Jews
"lost" their Kennkarte (passport) in order to give it to the underground
specialists to change the foto.

These people could easily exist further
on by just showing the Postausweiskarte during raids or documents
control as it was equally accepted as identification document. They had
not to go to police and state the loss of their Kennkarte (passport)
which would mean much distress to them.

This was one of the given possibilities to get access to an
original German Kennkarte (passport). The other was theft, of course.

Re: For what reason did immigrants stay in England for a short period of time..v #general

Joseph Hirschfield
 

One common reason is that they arrived in London after their ship to
New York had sailed. Delays in travel can result in stays like you
describe until funds can be arranged because a new ticket must be purchased.
There is no credit for the ticket on the forfeited passage.

Hello out there,

Does anyone happen to be familiar with Oskar GOTTSTEIN (b Lissa, Kreis
Fraustadt // Leszno, PL 16 Oct 1852) ?
He was married to Esther Emma GOTTSTEIN nee MEMELSDORF (b Samter (Szamotuly,PL)
08 Jan 1852).
They had a daughter,Helene Karoline GOTTSTEIN,b Mainz, 13 Jul 1882.
The family resided in Mainz >from (at least) the late 1880s until (at least)
around WWI.
(Helene, a pianist, got married to (non-Jewish) Max Emil Doerner (d Berlin,
in 1925). Their only daughter Helga was born in Berlin, 1908 and died
there in 1928). Helene was eventually deported >from Berlin to Auschwitz
(via Theresienstadt). She perished in 1944.) Thank you.

Britain was a staging-post for east European emigrants who often stayed in
the country for anything >from a few days to months or years before
proceeding to their desired destination. The historian Lloyd Gartner
suggested that as many as half a million Jews spent 2 or more years in
the British Isles before moving on. He mentions that 'A substantial
congregation in Toronto is named Hebrew Men of England'. It is said that
the founders had spent some time in England and thus considered themselves
'men of England'.

indicates that the Patricia didn't arrive in the U.S. in November of
1900: only October and December. Therefore, either the date is wrong or
the ship name is wrong.

Hart Island #general

There are records (on microfilm) of the Hart Island burials at the New
York City Archives. I have used these records to get information on
several of my family members (infants) who are buried there. I first
learned of these burials >from the death certificates for these
relatives that I located at the city archive.

The book on the subject of Labour Units in the British Army in WWI is by
John Starling and Ivor Lee, No Labour, No Battle: Military Labour during the
First World War, 2009. There is a section on Jewish Labour, and 'Russian
Labour Battalions and Companies' are dealt with on pp. 289-291.

Re: EPSTEIN #rabbinic

The Jewish Encyclopedia (1906 edition) had an article on EPSTEIN,
including a graphic family tree going back to Nathan ha-levi EPPSTEIN
in the mid-fifteenth century, ce.

<http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/5825-epstein/>

It's a bit hard to read (at least in the online scanned version - I
wonder if anyone has access to it in print and could scan it at a
higher resolution?), and I'm not sure how well-researched it is, so
there may be better, newer, sources.

Are there any published genealogies for these HaLevi EPSTEINs? I am
interested especially in their *ancestors*.
