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.

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
Pfalz and others >from Luxembourg.

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

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.

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.

Dorothy/Devora SALL (married to Gelbtuch) #general

Dear Group,
Would anyone know detail on a Dorothy/Devorah SALL married in Manhattan
in 1953 to Moshe GELBTUCH (of Skalat, Ukraine). Devorah was born in 1926
and passed away in 1986. She is buried in NJ in New Mt Lebanon.

I am looking for detail on her ancestry. She is not the Dorothy SALL
from Syracuse who passed away 2005 (but was also born 1926).

Re: (Belgium and Netherlands) Open Archives #france

Dear Friends,

This website looks very promising. It refers to records in Dutch and Belgian
archives. The url is nl, meaning the source is The Netherlands. I tried it
out with various names. I saw that it did not confine itself to Jewish
names. I tried two Jewish names and some Belgian ones. >from the results I
conclude:

The site deals mainly with Dutch records. Very occasionally there is an
event in Belgium, but it seems always to be one connected to a record in
Nederland. For instance, someone born in Vlissingen, Zeeland, death recorded
in Oostende, Belgium. The source is probably a Dutch record.

I tried a few names >from my own family. Some of the names appear in Dutch
records but they are not related to my family. Like my mother's name Van
Parys, not one record >from Belgium. My own name Bousse, rare in Holland but
for which I have records in Belgium >from the late 1500s, no results in that
website.

The website is useful but with these limitations.

I wish you all a happy and healthy year 2018.
