Searching artist William Gopper's "aunt " Rachel who perished in the Triangle Fire #general

Susan Viuker Lieberman <viukerville11@...>
 

My cousin is related to William Gropper. In Louis Lozowick's book William
Gropper there is a mention of Aunt Rachel, much beloved by the Gropper
children who died in the Triangle Fire.

We are interested in learning more about her. On the list of victims there
is a Rachel Gross but we do not know if that is her or if she is one of the
many woman named Rose, perhaps a more American name.


Thank you.

Re: Bavarian research #general

Ralph Bloch <rablo07@...>
 

Further to Carol Jaffe's inquiry regarding her Bavarian gggrandmother
Babette Lazarus:

I have searched the civil records of Bavarian Swabia (jgbs.org) and the
matrikel lists of Lower and Middle Franconia (Bavarian regions). In Swabia
the name 'Lazarus' occurs only sporadically:
A Jachet Lazarus died 1809 at age 74 in Harburg.
A Hendle Loeb nee Lazarus bore two children in Horben (1830 and 1831);
And a Sandel (Alexander) Lazarus died 1806 in Wallerstein.
Furthermore, a 'Dolz Lazarus' died in Wallerstein in 1832. However, it
says "widow of Lazarus". So we don't know if this was her husbands first name
before the introduction of family names.
Neither in Middle nor Lower Franconia des the family name 'Lazarus'
appear at all.

So, while I couldn't help you in finding your gggrandmother, you now
know at least, where not to search further.

New York street videos #general

Phyllis Kramer
 

So often I find folks asking about street addresses on the lower east
side, where many of our immigrant ancestors lived. I just came across this
fabulous site; just put in the address and you will see the street view.
Very simple to use.

I am assuming the videos were taken in the late 2000s..... it says they are
sourced >from Google street views.

Use vPike to acquaint yourself with an area before you go there or you
can call up places >from your past to see what they look like now.

happy hunting!

Help with given names (Ellis island db) #general

elkamins@...
 

Hello -

I recently found a record that fits my KAMINSKY family in the Ellis
Island database. I am having trouble reconciling the family first names
and need some help. I have read the pages in the Jewish Gen website and
still need guidance.

The Ellis Island listing has

Sheofie Kaminsky (Male age 22)
Marianne Kaminsky (Female age 22 married)
Leonhard Kaminsky (Male age 1)

I've read that Leonhard could be Americanized to Isidore (which would
be correct for how I knew him). Am I correct in this?
The other two (my great grandparents) I knew as Samuel and Jennie.

Your collective wisdom is greatly appreciated

Thank you - Elizabeth Kaminsky

Re: Looking for a ship to Israel in 1950 #general

Orit Lavi
 

Dear friends

Allan Jordan asked whether there was a connection between the ship
Protea, arriving to Haifa 3 times during the period August - October
1950, and the IRO (International Refugee Organization).

I have found no evidence to such a connection. Following a negotiation
between the Israeli legate in Warsaw and the Polish government, Polish
Jews were allowed to leave Poland between autumn 1949 and September
1950. This was as part of a commercial agreement between the two
countries, according to which Israel committed to import goods from
Poland.

The ship Protea arrived to Israel within the above framework. The
immigration was organized by the Israeli legate in Warsaw, together
with Orbis - the Polish national travel agency. At first, most of the
immigrants traveled by train to Italy, and then sailed to Israel with
Israeli ships. But later on the pressure was stronger, so a few ships
left >from Gdynia (near Gdansk). These included the Israeli (ZIM) ship
"Artza", and the Polish Protea - as demanded by the Poles.

By September 1950, only about half of those wishing to leave Poland
managed to do so, and the Poles agreed to delay the deadline to the
end of February 1951. >from then onwards the gates were closed until
the "Gomulka immigration" in 1957.

The above info is based on the book "Immigrants in Turmoil" by Dvora
Hakohen, and also on "1949: The First Israelis" by Tom Segev.
The Historical Jewish Press archive also includes various references
to the above. For example, in August 1950, the newspaper Davar writes
that the ship Protea arrived with 1066 immigrants. The trip took 13
days, and was accompanied by Abraham Ishuv >from the Israeli legate in
Warsaw and Abraham Shechter >from the Jewish Agency. In another
article, published August 22nd, it is said the ship was hired by the
Jewish Agency.
