Burial Society records in Ancestry.com #austria-czech

ebrowne@...
 

Hi Genners,
Have any of you tried to use the burial society records in Ancestry.com ?
I find them very frustrating, as they give the name of the person, and the
plot, row etc of the grave, as well as the country where the burial has
taken place, but fail to mention the name of the cemetery or even the town
of burial. As a consequence I cannot find out if this refers to the person I am
researching. Am I being particularly stupid, or has anyone a suggestion for
how to make these records more useful?

Re: Zentralfriedhof, Vienna - what is the meaning of *no* grave location? #austria-czech

w.e.eckstein@...
 

SPITZER Philipp aged 53 02/03/1897 Zentralfriedhof Tor 1 - no grave
location given.
WEISSGLAS Hersch aged 80 died 06/04/1917 Zentralfriedhof Tor 1 and
no grave location.
Sorry - a mistake by Mr. Pagler.
This Philipp SPITZER, wine agent >from Komorn, Hungary, was buried group 50
row 37 grave 46.
In 1906 there was also buried Marie SPITZER >from Papa, Hungary, aged 53 -
maybe his wife.

But Celia is right: no grave location mostly means: buried or reburied
elsewhere, like
Hersch WEISSGLAS who was buried 1917 group 53b row 29 grave 8, exhumed
1922 and reburied in Czernowitz. Then this grave was free for Lina and David
SCHWARZ.

Vienna relatives #austria-czech

Hello everyone:

I am trying to find information on my great-uncle's family >from Vienna.
This is what I know:

LEOPOLD (LEIB) BLECH was born in Riga, Latvia in 1872. I believe that the
family left Latvia for Germany by 1892 (when my Grandfather was born in
Freiburg). Leopold relocated to Vienna. His wife was AMALIA. In 1938 he
was arrested by the Nazis and sent to Dachau and then Buchenwald
concentration camps. I recently received the records >from these camps and
found out he had two children. (I knew he had an infant daughter that died,
but I would assume that reference did not include her.) Uncle Leopold was
released >from Buchenwald in late 1939 and came to the United States, through
Yokohama, in 1940. AMALIA died in 1939 while he was in the camp. He died
in the US in 1955 and his remains were sent back to Vienna to be buried or
entombed with his wife and daughter (in Wiener Zentralfriedhof). I have a
reference to "two relatives" >from another cousin and I think they might be
the children of Leopold. I am trying to find anything on them.

MAX BLECH - the curator of Greek antiquities at the University of Göttingen
TECLA (BLECH) - who lived in Vienna and wrote romantic penny novelettes.

It's possible they had already fled Vienna or chose not to leave. I checked
the ship manifest and only see my uncle's name.

I also read a short while ago a question about getting photos of burial
sites - any comments on that?

Thank you all so very much!

Re: LIEPMANNSOHN #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

It appears that Emil LIEPMANNSOHN left Southampton on May 14, 1898 on the SS
GOTH headed for the Cape. No age or nationality is given on the manifest.

However, there was a Kurt LIEPMANNSOHN who departed Liverpool on the SS
SCYTHIA on January 8, 1940 for New York. He was fourteen years old, German,
a student and had stayed at Bloomsbury House, London, WC2 along with another
student >from Germany Heinz SPEIER, age fifteen.

Another listing was for the LIEPMANNSOHN family who were >from Germany and
came to America on the SS EUROPA on February 23, 1939 >from Copenhagen,
Denmark, and ended up in San Diego as follows:

Richard Jacob LIEPMANNSOHN, born 1879, Karlsruhe, Germany, merchant

Margarete LIEPMANNSOHN, born 1885, Hamburg, Germany

Susy Josephine LIEPMANNSOHN, born 1915, Hamburg, Germany, secretary

Gerhard Gustav LIEPMANNSOHN, born 1922, Hamburg, Germany, locksmith

You should have looked at the SA National Archives site as it has the
following info: Hans Henry LIEPMANNSON, died 1945, surviving wife Josephine
Mary Edwards LIEPMANNSOHN. Thereupon, the widow, age 33, a nurse, left for
Liverpool, England, on the SS ANDES and arrived January 28, 1945, going to
Candereraig, Strathdon, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. It did not appear that she
had any children with her.

I will leave it to you to follow up on this information.

Contact has been made with the man I think my cousin, thanks to

Thank you all for your wonderful assistance and direction. I am sure
