INTRO - Seeking possible Jewish ancestors - BOPP, NOFSINGER, KRAFT, GANZER ? #germany

Micah Nofsinger <xgamerx65@...>
 

Shalom GerSig, I just joined the group. I have been trying to trace my
Jewish roots for a few weeks now. I live in Missouri, United States
(USA). My native language is English. I consider myself advanced in
using a computer, but I'm completely new to geneologies. My experience
in using the Internet is extensive. My primary research goals now is
to find all of the Jewish evidence of my ancestry as I can. My JGFF
Researcher ID number is 691845.

Here is my maternal Jewish genealogy as far back as I can find it:
Elizabeth/Eliza BOPP was the daughter of Jacob & Barbara/Nancy BOPP.
They immigrated to America and docked in Texas. Elizabeth was born 19
Jan 1856 in Zurich Canton, Switzerland. She died 05 Mar 1940 in Kansas
City, MO with burial in the Ganzer family cemetery just 4 miles south
of Raytown, Missouri in the area of Lee's Summit, MO.
Elizabeth married Karl Friedrich Wilhem GANZER on 19 Oct 1873 in
McKinney, Texas (so they docked in Texas prior to 1873). Karl was born
in 1851 in Berlin, Germany and died in 1909 in Lee's Summit, Missouri.
Karl & Elizabeth had 14 children.
Their 13th child was Eda/Edith Flora GANZER. She was born 13 Sep 1894
in Hickman Mills, Jackson County, Missouri and died 09 Mar 1961 in
Sundland, California. Eda married William James McKnight, Sr on 20 Jul
1912 in Kansas City, Mo. Eda and Wm. had 4 children.
Their oldest child was Dorothy Ruth McKnight (1914-2000). She
married Emory C. Kraft, Sr. on 28 Oct 1935 in Kansas City, Mo. Emory
was born in 1911 and died in 1983. Both are buried in Marysville,
Kansas. They had 3 children.
Their 2nd child is James Stanley Kraft (Micah's grandpa). James
married Lova Hattie Fincham on 01 Jun 1959. They have 4 children.
Their 3rd child is Vicki Lola Kraft, Vicki Lola KRAFT married
Scott Edward NOFSINGER, they had 3 children. Micah Nofsinger is the
youngest of the 3 children.

Historical records: "Bopp, Anna Barbara, von Otelfingen, -, 34, mit
einem Knaben und 2 Maedchen, nach Nordamerika; 10.8.1869 (PP 38.63,
1869, Nr. 300)"

tei.spooler.download.1282657112934.pdf/Passerteilungen_1848-1870.pdf)

I'm Micah Nofsinger. Also I know that the Bopp family crest has the
star of David therein. Can you guys help me find evidence that the
Bopps (And possibly Ganzers) were Jewish? I don't know where to look
or what to look for, nor do I have certain resources (Like
ancestry.com) to search indepth, and I don't know how to use JewishGen
sufficiently, I tried surname searches and I found some Bopps but from
what I know and found I don't know if they're related. Help!

I am currently researching the maternal side of my family >from Rachtig (now
Zeltingen-Rachtig) in the Rhineland Palatinate.
Jacob MARX b. 1909 was my third cousin. He married Mathilde LION whose
mother was Ernestine WENDEL b. 1886. Ernestine had a sister, Paulina b. 1884
and two brothers, Adolf b. 1887and Julius b. 1892.
I have quite a few WENDEL families >from Zeltingen and Rachtig >from the

searching for French family #france

Tim Homewood
 

Salut mes amis, my Jewish family has been in London since the first half
of the 19th Century but there are family stories of a French branch of
the family. Unfortunately I have no more information beyond the fact
that my great great grandfather was known by his grand children as "Père
Louis" and that the French family were regular visitors to London in the
late 19th Century.

I've just started looking into this mysterious branch of the family and
would love to hear any suggestions to help my research.

What I know is that Louis JACOBS was almost certainly born in the
Congress of Poland in the mid-1820s. He arrived in London probably in
the mid-1840s, certainly by 1849. He was a boot and slipper maker. I
can't identify the town of birth or his Polish name.

Louis' father was Henry JACOBS. Louis married Leah HENRY in 1850, the
daughter of a German migrant, Solomon HENRY.

I have considerable information about Louis >from his marriage to his
death in 1891. I have no information about his father Henry except for
his profession, cigar maker.

My impression is that if the family came >from Poland to France (and then
to London) they are likely to come to Paris, rather than the eastern or
south western Jewish communities. Is this correct? If so, my search
should be in Paris records.

I've seen that the Paris records >from this period are very patchy. I've
looked through some of the re-constructed records but haven't found any
of my family there. Does anyone have suggestions on areas to explore?

Are there existing synagogue records that could give me some
information? I'm hoping to receive Louis and Leah's ketubah soon which
may give some more information about the family names.

I've joined GenAmi and have looked through the records but so far I
haven't found anything.

Sorry this request is so broad but it would be great to have some
direction. Thanks for your time,
Tim

Our relative, a townsman of Criuleni, near Chisinau, obtained his travel documents in
Odessa Aug. 1913, to travel to New York via Canada. He left Russia at the Austro-Hungarian
rail border crossing of Podwoloczyska (Volochysâ??ka), Ukriane. However he got to Antwerp,
he traveled >from Antwerp, Belgium to the Port of Quebec near Montreal, Canada on the SS
Montezuma. He was sent by train (Rutland Railroad) to Alberg, VT, where he was admitted
by the Immigration Service, and then on to New York. I hope to understand one day how he
got >from Podwoloczyska to Antwerp. Things may have been different in 1905, or perhaps this
information will be of help.

Dear researchers,

Pamela Weisberger passed away on September 25th (see a message below).

Pamela was Vice-President of Programs at Jewish Genealogical Society of LA,
and also head and a leader of Gesher Galicia Special Interest Group.

It is so sad to get such message, especially if you know person well and she
was always full of energy and enthusiasm. I have met Pamela first time in Philadelphia
at the Jewish Genealogical conference in 2009 and since that we met every year in the
auditorium or in corridors or in bars of the conferences.  She always was busy with next
projects, always smiling and telling a new story.

At my first conferences I would go to Pamela?s presentations of her SIG and
lectures just learn >from her experience. Two years ago we started talking
about a project to do together Gesher Galicia SIG and Bessarabia SIG.  There
are many Galician Jews who end up in Bessarabia in 19 century, and we know
that >from our Bessarabian records and >from other sources. There would be a
very interesting project to research >from which towns Galician Jews came to
Bessarabia, possible their professions, life style, etc. they brought to
Bessarabia.
Unfortunately we did not have time to proceed with the project. 

Our condolences to Pamela's family. 
May God comfort you among the other mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Dear Sub-Carpathia researchers,

( I did not receive this notice directly, I read about it in other mail
lists. )

With great sadness and loss, I learned of the untimely passing of Pamela
Weisberger.

Pamela had a direct connection to Sub-Carpathia in several hamlets,
including Chop (Csap) and Uzhhorod (Ungvar), and contributed content to
the respective KehilaLink web sites for the benefit of current and future
researchers.

Her research and work on behalf of Sub-Carpathia researchers have
benefited all of us, most recently with her announcement about Cadastral
maps for our region.

Through her accomplishments and intense dedication, Pamela will be
fondly remembered and profoundly missed by all of us.

May she rest in peace.

Respectfully,
Marshall Katz

I have been completely stunned by the death of Pamela Weisberger.
Stunned. Can't get her out of my mind even though I haven't had a
conversation with her in a few years.

I experienced her as an incredible human being who lived out her passion
fully and completely and roused passionate energy of a variety of forms
in others.

She had the genius of recognizing great ideas, probing and exploring
them till she fully understood, weaving them together with other things
in different ways, and then expanding them into entities far greater
than had been originally conceived thus benefiting many, many people.

She utilized this talent these last several years as the face and primary
global spark plug of Gesher Galicia.

She had a varied career and a life that put her in the position of
interacting with interesting and prominent people which gave her an ease
in communicating her needs and wants and expecting them to be fulfilled.

She had stick-with it-ness and was persistent in pursuit of what she
wanted. I remember the months she chased after me and how she got her
way.

She was a great presenter.

She was an aishet chayil, a Jewish woman of the tradition who created a
beautiful, beautiful home and welcomed guests with food and drink and
conversation and the comforts her space. I had the pleasure of staying
with her 8 years ago.

I cannot believe this beautiful, vibrant woman is gone. I can't believe it.
Selfishly, I can't believe I will never get to have the healing conversation
with her that's been on my to do list for years.

Her contributions will be remembered forever. And the gap she leaves
will be very, very difficult to fill.

I mourn for her family who lost her so quickly and I assume unexpectedly
and pray that the rips on their hearts be healed, in their own time and at
their own pace. I pray they are surrounded by an energy of love and
caring, friends and well wishers.

May you/they be comforted amidst all those who mourn.

What distressing news. I am so sorry to hear it. Pamela was one of
those people that was fresh and real, always available. She was of
course a dedicated and knowledgeable person. Her giving nature and
encouraging outlook are what stand out in my mind. I remember one
time in July, shortly before the Boston conference, when she had time
to share some of her thoughts with me about an article I was working
on. She will be missed.

May her memory be for a blessing. As is our tradition to say, "may her

IAJGS 2016 Seattle conference update and a request #galicia

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

Plans are moving ahead as we prepare for the 36th Annual IAJGS
Conference on Jewish Genealogy, August 7-12, 2016, at the Sheraton
Downtown in Seattle.

One option we are exploring is a seven day Alaska cruise either before or
after the conference. This would not be a conference event, per se, but it
would be a great opportunity for a different type of adventure for those
who are coming to the Great Northwest next August. These cruises leave
from the Seattle Cruise Terminal, a short cab ride >from the hotel, and go
up the Inside Passage along the southeastern coast of Alaska. Typically,
they offer spectacular views of glaciers that meet the ocean, views of the
forests and wildlife of southeastern Alaska, and all the amenities of a
family oriented cruise. Prices start around $900 per person, double
occupancy for an inside cabin, including cabin and meals, and a variety
of accommodations are available on board these fully equipped cruise
ships.

Stops would include possibly Ketchikan, Juneau, Glacier Bay National
Park, Skagway, and either Vancouver or Victoria on the return trip. If we
get a sufficient number of people booking together, the price will be
discounted.

We expect there will be options for those who keep kosher, either
pre-packaged kosher meals or vegetarian meals.

One cruise option we are looking at would depart Seattle either July 28
or 29th, (Thursday or Friday), returning to Seattle on August 4 or 5
(Thursday or Friday). The other option would be a cruise departing
either August 15 or 16 (Monday or Tuesday), returning August 22 or 23.

We would like some input >from those who are interested in taking one of
these cruises. Please let us know if you would be interested in a cruise,
your preference either before or after the conference, and how many
would be in your party. We also need to have an idea how many of you
would require a kosher option. These are family oriented cruises, and we
are informed that there are a lot of things to do on the boat for all ages
of children, as well as the rest of us older folks. If there is sufficient
interest expressed before October 5, we will proceed with our plans and
let you know when we have finalized arrangements. If not, it was a great
idea. The Alaskan cruises are extremely popular and would be a great
way to see a beautiful part of the country that relatively few people get
to see.

If you are interested, please respond to Chuck Weinstein directly at
chuck@iajgs2016.org, and let us know what you think. Again, this will
not be an organized conference event, but it will be a great opportunity
to turn your conference experience into a wonderful vacation to
remember and cherish for years to come.

Help needed with reading name on death record from Jaworow. #galicia

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - Can anyone help me figure out a name on the following death
record? See the link below. It's >from Jaworow >from 1886. In the
column where it shows the person's name (Markus Rittner), it also gives
the person's parents names. The mother's name is clearly Chaje. I have
trouble reading the father's first name. His second name looks like
Moses. Hopefully it's a common name combination found in Galicia,
that someone here can easily recognize. Thanks very much.
