Help with Obituary Look-up In Philadelphia Or Maryland #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello All

I have an ancestor I am trying to track down an obituary on. Her name
was Zelda Faikes when she immigrated to Philadelphia in 1910. She
changed her name to Jennie/Jenny and married a Morris Segal in 1916.
Jennie died in 1-3-1972 in Chase, Maryland in a nursing home. What I
am unsure of is where the obituary would have been placed. She lived
most of her life in Philadelphia after immigrating >from Poland/Russia.
I believe after the husband Morris died she was moved to Maryland to
be closer to her daughter who was living there at that time. I do not
know when the husband died. So, I am asking for help with an obituary
look-up in either a philadephia paper(most likely the jewish exponent)
or a Maryland paper in Chase County. Any and all suggestions are
needed.

Re: confidentiality #general

Shalom,
There are people who will not be satisfied with anything.
However I maintain a website, which is not password protected, and this
is what I do: For my family, I remove all dates for the living people
and upon request will also eliminate place and change the first name to
living. For two individuals, I go one step further and only use Mrs.
Married Surname. One of these was concerned about being identified as
Jewish (religion is not part of the included data) and the other one's
husband was concerned about identity theft. The woman who was concerned
about Jewish, did not realize that if I put in Mrs. X, that I might do
that just as a placeholder and it did not refer to her. On the other
hand the person who was concerned about identity theft was very
satisfied with this solution. Because of the way that I construct my
site I re edit my files with every update.

For my husbands family, I also keep a list of people whose first
names get changed to living. In this case the software (I have two
different genealogy programs) will automatically remove all dates and
places for living people.

However, I have had many more emails >from people who were delighted to
find themselves and their family tree than the other way around, much
like the lovely message that John Simmons included on this post.

I had a similar experience. I put together a family blog that
initially was really well received and we got into contact with several
"lost" relatives.

USC archives in Lublin #general

iBook
 

I made some researchs in USC Archives in Lublin and in others little
towns, and it is not always the same way. For example, in Zamosc, I
found a big register and they made a copy of the page interested to
me; in Lublin, I gave them the number of the record and they sent it
to me some weeks after. You can send them a mail before you go to USC
Archives Warsaw , maybe, it will be more quicly.
Have a good trip in Poland!

FREUDENFALL from Jaroslaw and seeking family links in Israel #general

Steve Freed <stfr1961@...>
 

I've recently received a letter >from a cousin and discovered that
my great-grandparents Wolf (Zeev) FREUDENFALL born around 1860 in
Galicia and his wife Miriam lived in JAROSLAW in Galicia. As well as
being a leather merchant, Wolf was a Helamed in this town. I have also
discovered that my grandfather Adolf born in GRYBOW in 1883 was in fact
the eldest of 7 children of Wolf and Miriam.

Sarah married PRINZ and emigrated to Israel after WW2. Their daughter
Rifka married VUNDER and daughter Yaffa married SONNENBLICK.
Bracha married BRIEFWEXLER and their daughter Bluma married WEINSTEIN.
They again emigrated to Israel.
Helen married CHERSKY and family all traced in UK.
Eva married HOFSTADTER and lived in UK.
Rosa married Bernard GREENWALD and now live in Israel.
Meudle and his family are known to have been killed by Nazis in WW2.
After a year of fruitless research I've initially been overwhelmed
with all of this new info but after searching the usual sources I've
so far failed to make any further connections. I post this message in
the hope that the family names I have highlighted may be meaningful
to some of you?

Slight Polish Translation Birth Record KALKOPF, Sosnowiec, Poland #general

Michael McTeer <mcteer@...>
 

I received two transcribed birth certificates for two daughters, Sura and
Cutel, of my great grandparents, Aron and Liba (LENCZNER) KALKOPF, who were
born in Sosnowiec, Poland.

What is curious to me is when the documents may have been filed. There is a
notation towards the bottom right hand side with Sura's "Nr 333/1923/12" and
Cutla's being "Nr 334/1923/12". Sura was born in 1910 and Cutla in 1912.
Does this mean the documents were not recorded until 1923 (the same year
their half sister >from a different marriage was born and after the death of
Aron)?

I have scans of the documents at:

KALKOPF, Sura

KALKOPF, Cutla, http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/qvsHFCTQytErnDEnB6WpEg

Thanks,

(NOTE: Both daughters remained in Poland and are believed to have been lost
in the Holocaust. Sura was probably the daughter who married in 1932/3 when
Liba last visited Poland.)

Published Memoirs as an info source #general

Miriam Eguchi <miriamj@...>
 

I have just been reading "Five Years in the Warsaw Ghetto" (also titled "The
Stars Bear Witness") by Bernard Goldstein. This book mentions many people by
name, and provides tidbits of information about these people that could be
of interest to relatives. This book was recently brought to the attention of
my newly found living cousin (who, incidentally, was a "hidden child," whom
I had located by means of Yad Vashem and Lodz Archives records). The short
references to my cousin's father in this book provided her with valuable
information she hadn't know about, including her father's role in the
ghetto, how he felt after smuggling her out, and how and when he died. It
was also very moving to me, because her father was my grandmother's
favourite brother, and she used to talk about him a lot.
I imagine there are other published memoirs available; is there a list of
them somewhere? I would especially like to know about memoirs of the Lodz
and Warsaw Ghettos that mention a lot of names of people.

Thank you to everyone who answered my query about a 1914 Chicago

find the marriage record I'm looking for, but it will be interesting to
follow up all the leads. I'll post again if I get any results.
