Seeking info re Yechiel COHEN #general

ellen <ecm@...>
 

In 1892 or 1893, my Great Uncle Yechiel (sp) Cohen and his twin, Meyer
Henick Cohen, were born in (sounds like) Nadra Venz, Poland. Their parents
were Samuel Cohen and Hannah Rousch. Although I have found information
about Meyer, I have found nothing about Yechiel or his parents. The twins and
three or four other brothers came to NYC. At one time, Yechiel lived in New
Jersey and had a business there. If anyone knows of this family or how I
might search further, I would appreciate hearing >from you.

Thank you for reading this.

Grandmother on EIDB #general

Susan&David
 

To All:
Have been searching diligently since EIDB originally came on line in
2001 for my grandmother's arrival in the 1921-23 period by trying many
alternative surname spellings. Tried both the name as it was in
Russia, Nemerzhansky, and the name Rosen adopted in the U.S. by my uncle
in 1904.

Also looked many times at Boston, Philadelphia & Baltimore
arrivals and Hamburg departures on the pay web-site. Finally found
her by searching EIDB for all arrivals with first name Chana for those
three years and sorting through 2552 names. Last name was, of course,
typewritten on the manifest as it sounded (but not quite), and not
indexed as it was typed. Although all other family members emigrated
from Hamburg she departed >from Trieste.
Moral of the story- If at first (or second or third or......)

Passports #unitedkingdom

In answer to your query about 1901 passports, I gather these did not exist
in 1901, but I stand to be corrected. I suspect the 1905 Aliens Act changed
this.

Schlossstrasse in Skalica, Slovakia (?) #hungary

Yohanan
 

I have received >from Yad Vashem some more information >from the ITS records,
regarding the deportation of my grandfather Yohann LOEFFLER, in 1942 >from
Bratislava.

One of the documents, Title: “ 1. B Transport Pressburg – Bratislava”,

is a list of Jews in that transport. One entry is:

“299. Loffler Johann, 1877, Skalica, Schlosssestrasse 64, Kaufmann”.

Johann indeed was born in Skalica, Slovakia in 1877

and was a shopkeeper / retailer in Lackenbach, Austria.

But I am not sure if Schlosssstrasse 64 was the address where he was born in
Skalica,or where he lived in Bratislava.

A search in Google brought up only a street in Vienna, but Johann did not
live in Vienna.

I wonder if any of the researchers knows if there used to be as
Sclossstrasse street in Skalica,

and if yes, what would be the present day street name, and if the house is
still there?

Happy Pessach,

Yohanan Loeffler
