Seeking Information about Family History (EISENBACH = Surname) #general

Paul Martin <paulc_martin@...>
 

I am unsure as to whether or not I am doing this right ... I hope to get
some response.

I seek information about my grandfather, Zalman EISENBACH who entered the
US at Ellis Island around 1923. He served as a rabbi to the congregation
of "brotherly love" in Scranton until his death around 1933. I believe he
lived in and was married to Rivka Leah in Bicske, Hungary (near BudaPest)
but I am not sure about anything else ...

You may respond to me with absolutely any info you may have about Zalman, the
Eisenbach family name or Bicske, Hungary information which might relate to
Zalman. I was told that he was a "mohel" as well as a "ritual slaughterer" when
in Hungary

... my name is Paul Martin. I am son of "Poli" Eisenbach, who I also
believe was born in Hungary in the early 1920's. ( he was 3 year old when
enter US ) ... I can be reached at paulc_martin@yahoo.com ... Thank you
for any info you might be able to share.

the handwriting was poor--after all he was a doctor. VM9489 is his picture

Printing large family trees #general

Natalie Spencer Carroll
 

I have more than 2000 names in my family tree. Trying to get them all on a
single page is difficult.

When I purchased my first ink-jet printer I had a number of specifications
that the printer needed to meet. The first was the ability to print large
family trees and the second was that it would lend itself to modification
of archival photographs. Color, being reasonably priced and the cost of ink
cartridges, especially ink cartridges, were also factors.

I settled on two manufacturers of ink-jet printers. They both had paper
size selections. The user size paper in question would have to include
11x17 and 11x42. The pertinent difference between the manufactures was
that one had a maximum length of 42 inches and the other had almost
unlimited length (banner). I bought the first one because I wasn't aware of
that difference. The prices of the printers and ink and functions were
almost identical, I just wasn't aware of the size limitations. If I had to
do it again I would have bought the second one. Apparently one of the two
printers had greater memory.

I must say that I have not found the difference as being really that
restrictive. I just need to choose my font and font size carefully. I
usually use Arial Narrow at font 10, a size that is still readable, at
least in English, I cannot vouch for other languages. By carefully
selecting font size and tree format I can almost always get the full tree
on a 11 inch high page, length is a different story, 18 to 20 feet., 4 or 5
11x42 inch pages. Much easier than putting together 20 to 24 - 8.5x11 inch
pages.

I buy custom cut 11x42 inch paper >from a paper wholesaler at about
$1.50/sheet. I buy a little thicker stock, but one that my printer will
handle. A note, it is time consuming, but this is a labor of love, isn't it.

Montgomery, Berks and Lehigh County, Pennsylvania research #general

David Priever
 

Dear Fellow Jewishgenners,

Help, *please*! A while ago I posted a message asking for help with research
in Reading, Berks County, Pennsylvania. The same family lived in cities in
the counties of Berks, Lehigh and Montgomery County in the 1910, 1920 and
1930 censuses.

I wrote to the Pennsylvania Department of Vital Records requesting a death
certificate >from 1915 and they denied my request. If there is anybody in
Norristown, Montgomery County who is familiar with Jewish Cemeteries in that
area and I can give you the name and date of death of the person, I am
especially interested in who else with that family name is buried with the
decedent.

I have already checked the JOWBR and other resources with no luck. I hav e
the obituary and it give no helpful information.

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,

I posted a document >from 1927, >from Stanislawow, on Viewmate and a very
wonderful woman translated it for me. Unbelievably, I can't find it, and

Searching for Bernard SMILOVIC from Mukacevo b. 1926 #general

felicia zieff
 

Dear Friends,

Please help Sam "Shiku" SMILOVIC, a Survivor in Toronto, Canada to find out what
happened to his brother, Bernard Smilovic.

This is Sam "Shiku" Smilovic; born in Mukacevo Feb 8,1928 that was Czechoslovakia
at the time. The city belongs to Ukraina now. I was Liberated in Buchenwald
April 11, 1945 at 3.P.M.

I am looking for my brother Beri, or Bernard Smilovic, born in Mukacevo Jan. 3,
1926. I have been in touch with the Red Cross and all parts of the world. The
final information after 10 years is as follows:

Smilovics Bernard,born in Munkacs on Jan 3/1926 was committed >from Concentration
camp Gross Rosen to concentration camp Mathausen on 15th Feb 1945; Prisoner
No: 129213. He was liberated there by the U.S.army on the 5th of May 1945.
May 25, 1945 he was repatriated >from Mathausen to Bratislava Czechoslovakia.

To date, we have not found out what happened to him.

Below is the only evidence that appeared on a list >from the Bricha operating in
Barri, Italy in 1945. His name appears together with some 20 boys and girls all
from our town of Mukacevo.
List of the Children in Barri 1945: Ackerman, Herman, 20years old; Chana 18
years; Davidovic Mojse 48 years old; Feldman, Andor 24; Gottesman, Isac 32; Gold,
Joseph 24; Ilos Myer 20; Liberman, Cilla 26; Mauskop, Ester 16 years; Markovic,
Ado[ph 21; Rutner, Shlojmo 19 years; Spiegel, Samuel 24; Stoler, Mojshe 18
years; - Shmilowits, 19 years old - this could be my brother although the
spelling is different. Note that there is no first name on the list. The question
is "why?" There are hundreds of possibilities but his age is correct; in 1945 he
was 19 years old; Weiss, Israel 15 years old; Weiss, Samuel 28 years; and
Mermelstein, Myer 19 years old This the list.

I hope that there is someone alive and who will know more details what happened
to this group of Mukacevo or Munkacs, as we called it under the Hungarian
occupation, that there might be a miracle and some one will have the answer to
my brother's whereabouts.

Mrs. COLA and STONE from Cape Town, South Africa #general

ewolfson@...
 

Looking for information on family of Mrs. COLA in Cape Town. She had at least
three siblings who may have settled in Baltimore, MD permanently: Dr. Eprhaim
STONE, a dentist b. 1880, Samuel STONE, and Amelia STONE b. ca. 1887. They
were originally >from Suwalki, Poland.

The address for Mrs. COLA in 1909 was 18 Queens Road, Capetown, South Africa.
Perhaps someone in Cape Town could figure this out based on the address.

These STONE relatives were born STAM or STAMM, and probably are the nieces and
nephews of my g-g-grandmother, Anna Dora who settled in Pittsburgh.

Please respond privately with any current contact information for families of
these individuals.
