Chava Agmon z"l #general

ingrid rockberger
 

IGRA and the Israeli genealogy community deeply mourn the death of Chava Agmon
(b. Eve Marie Nadelman). Known as the "Grande Dame" of Israeli genealogy, Chava was
involved in genealogy in Israel for over 30 years and was one of the founding and
most devoted members of JFRA (Jewish Family Research Association), one of the
forerunners of IGRA.

Chava was a feisty, feminist, no-nonsense character and attended meetings whenever
she could - even up to a few months ago.

When offered free membership as she entered her 90th year, she would not hear of it
and insisted on giving her membership money as a donation.

Chava was a descendant of R. Joseph Chaim Caro (1805-1895) of Wloclawek, Poznan,
Poland, and, after inheriting several family manuscripts, she spent many years
resesearching the family, and eventually donated her research to the Jacobi
collection at the National Library of Israel.

She was responsible for the addenda to the Chronicle of the Caro family written by
Jakob Caro in 1891.

For more about Chava Agmon: http://sefarad.org/lm/017/kara.html

May her memory be for a blessing.

Alsace-Lorraine researching grandfather #germany

Carolyn Allen <rjazz1@...>
 

Hi -- I am a new member

I would like to find a birth certificate for my grandfather, David John (or
Jacob) DORANZ or any information on the DORANZ family. I do not know in
what city in Alsace-Lorraine he was born. The family did identify as
German. David was born around 1854.

His father's name was Jacob DORANZ . However, when Jacob died in a nursing
home in New York City in 1911 it was spelled DORENS. It was spelled as
DORANZ on his tombstone. I think David DORANZ' mother was Ruth KRUEGER.

I have a lot more information but don't know if it is relevant.
Thank you very much in advance.

Re: Advice on heritage tours in Bialystok region? #poland

Tamara Edell Gottstein <tamama2e@...>
 

The Taube foundation specializes in this kind of thing so you might ask
them.

They also set up a genealogy center in the Jewish Historical Institute.
People there were every helpful to us when we were going to Bialystock and
Narewka with advice about where archives were and how to source information.

Good luck and please share what you find out.

I also want to get to the Lomza Gubernia region as well as Bialystock and
Narewka again. All in Northern Poland. I would love tips for a good guide
and also someone who can help access and translate information >from local
archives.
Thanks so much.

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!

Good morning.
I have a number of names that might match yours.
HERZ is a very common name in my tree. Many >from N=FCmbrecht, some >from the

HIRSCH is also a common surname >from the Pfalz and other areas of Germany

You can check my LOBBENBERG family tree on Ancestry. My father was Walter

Intro -Researching HELD Family from Berlin, Breslau & Silesia #germany

Hello GerSig, I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy
research off and on for a few years. I consider myself to be a novice
in doing German Jewish Genealogy research. I live in Teaneck, NJ , US
. My native language is English. I consider myself an expert in using
a computer. My experience in using the Internet is extensive. I have
identified the names and birth and death dates of ____ of my
grandparents.

My primary research goals now are to find out if there
are other relatives that survived the holocaust. Also were rumors my
Grandfather had a son outside marriage. My JGFF Researcher ID number
is 379188.

I was lucky enough to be able to retrieve my mother's dna >from a
stalled research project. Her DNA is up on Geni.com and FTDNA ,please
contact me for that info> My DNA is up on Ancestry which I have also
uploaded to Jewish gen.

Cheers, Wendy Kelly, Teaneck,NJ <kellyww@...>

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.
Of course join the German Jewish Special Interest Group GerSIG
(there's also a link on the page).

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