INTRO - Seek Clara HAUSDORFF - Berlin c1939 #germany

Jules Feldman
 

I am searching for information on Clara HAUSDORFF who was possibly in
Berlin in 1939. Her granddaughter tells me the following :

She was born as Chaya Gittel HAUSDORFF in Jerusalem in about 1890 to
Mordechai Shlomo and Chaya Reizel HAUSDORFF and in Berlin went by the name
Clara or Klara HAUSDORFF. The HAUSDORFF family had been in Jerusalem since
1847 but had German citizenship .

She was married to Isaac PERLOW .
In 1914 her husband was in Australia and she was in Jerusalem with 2
children . With the outbreak of World War One she together with her
children, parents and siblings moved to Berlin .

In Berlin she was hospitalised and in 1925 sent her children to their father
in Australia . During the 1920s her parents and her siblings returned to
Jerusalem but she remained hospitalised in Berlin . She was probably still
alive in 1939 and her fate is unknown .

In the 1920s she lived in Marienburgerstrasse and was connected with the
Oranienburgstrasse Synagogue where her son sang in the choir . The district
of Berlin may have been called Charlottenberg.
Her name does not appear in the database of Yad VeShem.
We will be grateful for any information on her and any suggestions as to how
to find information . Thanks,

Jules Feldman, Kibbutz Yizreel <@julesfe>

Thank you in advance.

Re: National Archives (USA) Cost for Digistizing Records Could Reach $1.4B #general

Jane Pearson <doumajk@...>
 

I don't think this is the cost of "digitizing the records at the National
Archives." I believe this refers to the Electronic Records Archive - the plan for
archiving "born digital" records. "it is also the repository of billions of pages
of e-mails, memos and electronic files created by every branch of government. These
along with a growing number of audiovisual holdings, must be preserved for the
public, by law, which has put the Archives under growing pressure to manage the
digital avalanche." (Wash. Post article cited)

Maria Altmann Dies- Won Fight To Return Klimt Portrait Seized by the Nazis #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

At the 2008 IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy (Chicago)there
was a session with Randoll Schoenberg on "Recovering Nazi Looted Art- A
Genealogist's Tale". Randoll is a Los Angeles based attorney --and Jewish
genealogist - he is the co-founder of the Austria-Czech SIG, and was the attorney
who successfully won in the US Supreme Court to be able to sue, and in the Austrian
Courts the return of the Klimt portrait for his client Maria Altmann. The return
of the valuable portrait that was taken by the Nazis was a remarkable event.

The following is the obituary of Maria Altmann who died at age 94 and the article
retells the story of the return of the portrait.

Need assistance with Hebrew translation to English #general

Patricia Prinz
 

Dear Genners,
Last October I invited family members to a reunion in Tel Aviv. Most of them were
Hebrew-speakers, so I allowed them to express themselves in Hebrew. I am not a
Hebrew speaker. I filmed the reunion, which is 52 minutes long. My roots are >from
Lithuania, and everyone there originated >from a stetl in Lithuania. One member who
recently passed away was the last living witness in Linkuva to the Holocaust. If you
are fluent in Hebrew and English and wish to help me translate, please contact me at

Is anyone researching Sam or Simon ZAIDMAN who married Rebecca or Renee WENGIER
(WENGER) 1930 in Shoreditch, England? Simon appears to be born 1907 in Mile End. I
also see a birth in 1931 for Ivor Zaidman in Stepney and Roma Zaidman in Stepney
1933. JGFF has over 60 entries for ZAIDMAN or variations of same. I have
cross-posted on British SIG.

Does anyone know an Irwin CHODOWSKY? #general

sharon yampell
 

All I know about him is he was born around 1917 in Russia and was an adopted son of
my first cousin twice removed Minnie WOLOWITZ MARGOLIS and her husband Hyman
(Herman). I found his name on a tree that a different cousin had made and he
doesn't even know who he is and whatever happened to him...

The cousin who made the tree said he found Irwin's name in the 1930 census with him
living with them in Philadelphia.

While we are on the topic of MARGOLIS, does anyone know anything about Minnie and
HErman's grandson Stephen? Minnie's second husband whose name was probably Ben?
When and where Minnie died?(she was born in Borzna around 1895)

Thanks in advanced!

They probably had a son Jankiel Gershon b. 1874. The couple is in some way related

Do you recognize this couple or know anything more about them.

NAKLO NAD NOTECIA #general

Miriam Margolyes
 

Dear Genners,

I am now researching my SANDMAN (N) rellies in this Polish town, previously known
as Nakel.

The information was sent to me by Trish Kilpatrick in Sheffield, UK who deciphered
the LDS Microfilms below which refer to the town. The records are written in
German, although now the town is in Poland.

Film No. 715114
1. Filmed on 25 Feb. 1970.
2. An Alphabetical Index of Surnames, giving basic details and reference numbers
for full entries in the next (main) film. NB. Within the listing for each letter,
the entries are in date order, not alphabetical (e.g. to find an entry for
SANDMANN, you have to look all through the S section).
3. Does not cover the whole time period of the main film.
4. Sub-divided into 3 volumes: [these are the years as printed at the front of
each volume, but there seem to be a few entries later than these, in the Deaths and
Marriages volumes].
1. Births 1848 - 1852
2. Deaths 1848 - 1858
3. Marriages 1854 - 1867.

Film No. 715115.
1. Also filmed on 25 Feb. 1970
2. The Nakel registers of Jewish Births, Marriages and Deaths [BMD] and a very
few Divorces. In German; Geburten, Heiraten, Sterbefalle, Ehescheidungen.
3. Described as covering the period 1823-1867, but there are a few missing years,
i.e. 1833, 1834, most of 1842, and most of 1866-7.
4. Sub-divided into 17 volumes (Nos. 4 to 20) in chronological order. Each volume
also starts with the photo of the appropriate Polish Archive page (Nos. D4088 to
D4104). [I took a photo of one if you'd like to see it].
5. Most volumes cover BMD for one year (usually in that order, but occasionally
BDM), except for Vol. 4, (1823-1832) Vol. 5 (1835-1837* Vol.
6(1836*-40) and Vols. 18-20, which cover 1848-1865, in a volume for each
category (Vol. 18 equals B, etc). (* not a misprint!).
6. Most of the earlier entries are in columns, often across two pages, which can
be easier to read, (once you've translated the headings!). Later entries are
mainly in continuous text, which can be more difficult.

Neither of these films have been transcribed. I hope this information may be
useful to those searching in German/Polish records.
