GRIMALOW - further clarification requested #general

Chris Gould <oldandintheway9@...>
 

Dear All
This is an up-date to my previous thanks.I am most grateful for the
large number of responses I have received on this (they are still coming
in).... The overwhelming view was that the place mentioned in the manifest
was referring to Grimalow/v, Gryzmalow, Grimaylov. Regardless of these
differences, it was thought to be at Latitude 49, 21, 0 and Longitude
26 0 0 and Nr. Skalat. This all places it in Ukraine. However, when I
search Google maps for Gryzmalow, as well as the one in Ukraine,
I get 2 further hits - one in Miechow County (just north of Krakow) and
one in Opoczno County (south-west of Lodz). This latter would make
more sense (much more than Ukraine) in terms of family origins.
My question is whether either of these 2 current Polish locations
would have been considered as being in Galicia in 1922.=
Thanks for your responses, Regards
Christopher GOULD/London UK

HEIMLER - WORTMANN ancestry #general

Lewis F. Lester <lewsails@...>
 

I am researching my Heimler and Wortmann ancestry.Here's what I think I
know.

My mother, Renee Heimler, was born 18 Oct 1908 in Czelldomolk, Hungary
and came to the U.S. in 1921 with my maternal grand-mother Pauline
Wortmann. My maternal grand-father, Karoly Heimler, born about 1863;
he owned a wine and leather goods business in old Kis-Czell
(later Czelldomolk). He did not come to the U.S. with his family, and
apparently died around the time of their emigration because Karoly is
later referred to as 'nehai' and my grand-mother's marital status
was changed >from married to widow on her citizenship papers. I have not
been able to locate anything on him or his parents, Ignatz Heimler and
Kate Deutsch. Karoly had three sisters - Anna, Marion & Giza, all of
whom disappeared in the Holocaust.

My maternal grand-mother, Pauline Wortmann, was born 29 Nov 1867 in
Nagykanezia, Hungary. Her father was Josef Wortmann (b. abt 1829, d.
abt 1901). His parents were Ignatz Wortmann (b. abt 1800 in Moravia
(Bohemia) and Perl Hirshel. Pauline's mother (my maternal great-grandmother)
was Regina Grunwald (b. abt 1839, d. abt 1905).

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

Any info on l. OBER and Flora COHEN #general

barbara
 

Hello All,

I'm hoping soneone can' give me a lead. This relationship may be a bit
complicated, and I'll try to be brief. My collateral granduncle (son of my
step ggreat grandmother) married Annie Ober. The name was abbreviated >from
Obersitzky. On the fultonhistory.com website, I found a notice about guests
visiting Catskell cottages in 1917. My great uncle, Julius Cohn was one of
the guests. With him was Mr. & Mrs. L. Ober and Miss Flora Cohn. I have
been trying to find any information on L. Ober. I sent away for a few
marriage and death certs - not him.

But, my big mission is to find the correct Flora Cohn - not easy to do. The
ultimate goal here is to link her to my paternal grandmother's family, as
I'm sure there is some relationship. The family name is Cohn, but there is
no Flora's in that immediate family. There is a Flora who died ten years
earlier in a family I'm trying to connect to my Cohn family.

So, I've decided to search for Ober, as the Cohn family was close to them.
Any leads would be appreciated.

Thank you.

1941-1942 Lwow Jewish Registration Cards #general

Mark Jacobson
 

Hi fellow researchers,

This is an informational post to all researching Lwow/Lviv/Lemberg
and the surrounding area. Searching the Family Search (LDS) Library
online catalogue http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library/FHLC/frameset_fhlc.asp
I discovered they now list 13 films of 1941-1942 Jewish Registration
Cards >from the city of Lwow/Lviv/Lemberg (currently Lviv Ukraine,
formerly Lwow Poland and Lemberg Austrian Galicia). These were filmed at
the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine Lviv and are >from
fond 701/5. They are categorized under Ukraine, Lviv, Lviv, Lviv -
Jewish records, Jewish Registration Cards 1941-1942, Jewish Congregation.
Lviv. Miriam Weiner's website describes these records as "20,000 index
cards [alpha by name] created by the Judenrat in July, 1941".
They are not indexed, are not online and I have not seen them so I do
not know how they are organized or what information they contain.

I have the exact co-ordinates of his grave if you can help out.
