INTRO - researching HERSCHEL family from Hamburg, Germany and environs #germany

Jeffrey Herrmann
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for
about 5 years. I consider myself to be a beginner in doing German
Jewish Genealogy research. I live in London, UK. My native language
is English and I also know a bit of German.
I consider myself advanced in using a computer. My experience in
using the Internet is extensive.

I have identified the names and birth and death date of my great great great
grandfather. Hew was born 9 Oct 1800 in Hamburg and was named
Bernhard Passach HERSCHEL. At the age of 20 he changed his name to
Bernhard nton HERRMANN. He died in Hamburg on 29 May 1876.
Bernhard's father was Meyer Michel HERSCHEL, born 1777-1781 in
Hamburg. He died on 21 Jun 1817.
Bernhard's mother was Louise WOLFF, born 28 Mar 1780 in Halle,
Germany. She died on 13 Aug 1860.

My primary research goals now are to find out:about the ancestry and
descendants of the HERSCHELs of Hamburg, and also to learn more about
the ancestry of Louise WOLFF of Halle.

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 681982.

Re: WEINBERG in Dortmond, Germany #germany

Phyllis Kramer
 

Dina Hill asked.......... if there is any information on the town of
Dortmond, Germany?
Has information been extracted for the Jewish people who were born there?

I would begin with the JewishGen Communities Page for the town; it is at
https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/community.php?usbgn=-1761123
Lots of interesting information on this Prussian town...including the
Jewish population of 1,924 (in 1900), 3,820 (in 1925). Also look at the
nearby towns to become familiar, so that when you research Weinberg you'll
find the ones >from Dortmond and the towns nearby.

I would start with the JGFF link on the page...and contact the other
researcher interested in Weinberg.

Then go to the German country database (there's a link on the page) to
see what information it might contain.

Lastly I would go to the German Special Interest Group (there's also a
link on the page), join and send your query to the German SIG
discussion list.

If you are really serious, I'd go to the archives of the German SIG
and see if anyone else has posted about your surname and town.

Minsk Family - Boston #ukraine

Joshua Skarf <jskarf@...>
 

Thanks to everyone for helping me out with my search. I didn't get the obituaries >from the Jewish Advocate, but someone was kind enough to send me obituaries >from the Boston Herald, and another kind soul sent me pictures of their tombstones and a death record. Many thanks.

I am still trying to track down a death record of Sophie Minsk (her name may be listed as Neminsky) >from Chelsea, MA in 1931, as well as naturalization records >from Karl Minsk, her son or son-in-law (the records conflict on this matter.) 

If anyone can help me out with this, I'd greatly appreciate it. 

Thanks,

Josh

KUSHNER from Brest-Litovsk area #belarus

Steve Stein
 

I am looking for anyone researching the surname KUSHNER in the Brest,
Belarus (i.e. Brest-Litovsk) area. Hardly any of the matches for KUSHNER on
the JGFF seem to be in this area, but I have information on an Esther
KUSHNER who married a LEVY in Brest-Litovsk before coming to America in the
1890s. Esther's parents on her death certificate are listed as Morris
KUSHNER and Rachel SCHWARTZ. I also have census/revision records for a
KUSHNER family but they don't seem to be a match to the KUSHNERs I know
about.

Thanks in advance.

Advice on heritage tours in Bialystok region? #poland

Jade Brooks <jadembrooks@...>
 

Dear all,

My name is Jade and I'm trying to plan a family trip to Poland to
visit Sokolka, the hometown of my great-grandmother. Does anyone have
advice on tour agencies that offer Jewish heritage tours? Any other
tips or suggestions for a visit to the region? Should we rent a car?
Should we take the train? Is it very necessary to have a guide
(particularly as we do not speak Polish, sad to say)?

Many thanks in advance for any advice!
