Book by Rene Guy Falkenau: Of Eagles and Falcons #poland

Charles Mahler
 

Hello Everybody,
For all those interested in Jewish families >from Prague and Cracow,
immigrating to Antwerp, there is a very interesting book --
"Of Eagles and Falcons" -- about the FALKENAU and ADLER families
over a period of 75 years >from 1875 to 1950.

It was written by Rene Guy Falkenau and includes details of a number
of members of the family, in Belgium, Czechoslovakia and Singapore.

The book is available in Amazon's search engine. I have no financial
interests neither with the author, neither with the publisher.

Best regards
Charles Mahler
Looking for MAHLER, LICHTMANN, MARGULIES, INTRATOR families

Louise "Lulu" FRANKEL #germany

Oliver Bryk <oliverbryk@...>
 

I am looking for information about my relative Louise "Lulu" FRANKEL,
specifically her date and place of death. She was born in Munich
(date unknown), the daughter of Hugo and Luise FRANKEL, both of whom were
born and died in Munich. Hugo's ancestors were >from Unterspringen.

Louise "Lulu" was married to Hanns KISSENBERTH (b. 1884). They divorced; he
married someone in Latin America. I doubt that Lulu emigrated to America
because I would have known about it >from her and my close relative who had
been living in New Jersey since the 1920s.

I will appreciate any suggestions regarding likely data sources for Louise's
date and place of death or burial.

Re: Family in Wales (DIAMOND) #unitedkingdom

CC'd to your own e-address in case I make a mistake in preparing this for the Forum...

My immediate reaction is to try to work back in both families to look for a join. To do that I'd look at [a] census records, [b] BMD indexes [c] National Archive database (esp. for naturalisations) [d] London Gazette archives [e] Jewish Chronicle archives. At some point you'd need to get official certificates, to make sure that you aren't following a false lead. I'd recommend buying certs direct >from GRO or the local registration office, direct (ca £9), rather than through any agent (usually charging a very substantial premium).


I had a look for the DIAMOND family: -

Abraham DIAMOND appears with his family in the 1911 census. You can glean quite
a lot >from what is available for free - especially if you take info >from one
access-site to another. Alternatively, you can gain access by pay-as-you-go
credits on a couple of sites, or by a subscription. That would give you access
to the original images.

His marriage to Phoebe STONE, in the Cardiff registration district in the
September quarter of 1909, shows on FreeBMD. Your only problem is to know
whether yours is Abraham DIAMOND or Abraham *David* DIAMOND - both of whom appear
on the same registration page. A certificate, requiring Phoebe STONE as the
bride would make sure you had the correct one.

Adele's birth record can also be found in FreeBMD - so long as you allow for
an unexpected spelling of "Adelle", as can that of Beatrice (1916) and Cicy/Cissie
(1914), showing mmn = STONE.

Googling shows that there's also a sefardies.org website which shows this family,
but my browser seems to be picking up unlikely name- & date-combinations (children
born long before the parents' marriages; children with different surnames >from
their father's). However, some of its detail looks likely - a specific marriage
date falling in right year/quarter in the right place. That site gives Abraham's
father as "Harris DIAMOND" (possibly >from the marriage certificate, given that
they have given a specific date for the marriage). A marriage cert would give
father's name and occupation... or what the bride/groom *claimed* was the father's
name and occupation. It is not unknown for certified information (name, age,
occupation) to have been "enhanced" for one reason or another (social advantage,
avoidance of embarrassment, getting round the law).


The London Gazette archive picks up a 1923 naturalisation for an Abraham DIAMOND,
who is a draper in Cardiff, so likely to be "yours". You *might* be able to get a
copy of the official documentation >from The National Archives at Kew. This could
give you some useful genealogical information. The fact that it's less than 100
years ago makes it more problematic.


There are death notices in the Jewish Chronicle for both Abraham and Phoebe.
I have access only to the tempter-snippet that is available publicly, but you may
be able to get access to the original articles - again they could give you useful
genealogical information. I rather think that there are other family notices for
them there, but I don't have enough access to be sure. I think that there may
also be notices for other Abraham DIAMONDs - including another one in the Cardiff
area - so you'll need to be discerning in what you pick out.

Incidentally, for many people (like me!) it really does help if you show
surnames in upper case: they leap out of the blocks of prose, and also make it
easier to distinguish between given names and family names in cases where the
family name may be the same as a given name (e.g. DAVID) or vice versa.

ZAWADZKI and MASZLANKA #general

Esther Goldberg
 

Hi Jenners
I have been researching ZAWADZKI [paternal] who originated >from
Pajenczno. The earliest called Dawid Zawadzki b abt 1760s, he changed
his name >from either Moskowitz about early 1800s. The Zawadzkis' moved
around to Lodz, Pabiance, Czenstochowa and onwards to England, USA, and
Sth America.
MASZLANKA [maternal] Issac Josef Maszlanka b abt 1856 in Lodz. The
family ran wholesale material wearhouses. The daughters married men
from Lynchetsz [BLUM] Russak >from Zgierz [RUBINSZTAJN] >from Konin
[RUSSAK] and WOLRAUCH >from unknown parts.
Is anybody else researching these families especially my maternal
family as I have only been able to go back to Issac's wife Shano Esther
ROSENTHAL father Rabbi Rudolph Rosenthal b. abt.1828 in Panachev m. to
Bertha BECKER and I think maybe his mother was Dora KOBER b. abt 1808.
Any information would be great

Klaipeda - Memel - Internal Passport Records #general

Howard Margol
 

The first group of Klaipeda (formerly Memel) internal passport records
have been translated. It consists of only 28 records but they do include
some very important information. Many more records remain to be translated.

The Klaipeda Internal Passports include the I.P.'s issued >from 1917-1940.
In 1919, Memel and the Memel region were cut off >from Germany. In
accordance with the Versailles Treaty, the Allies ruled this area with a
unit of the French Army headed by a French general.

On January 10, 1923 the Lithuanian army entered Memel and its region, and
replaced the French Army. On February 16, 1923 the Allies approved
Lithuanian's sovereignty over Memel and the region. Lithuania ruled the
Memel region >from 1923-1939.

In December 1938, during elections to the local Parliament, the local
German Nazis received 26 out of 29 seats, as a result of which the city
became in fact a part of the German Reich. On the 22nd of March 1939 the German
army entered Memel and the city and region were officially annexed to
Germany.

The Jewish files appear to be >from the late 1920's to the middle of the
1930's. It is clear that people needed documents under whatever power they
have been living, but what were the differences between the IP of
1919-1923 and 1923-1939 I'm not sure of at this time. Perhaps in the documents of
the period 1919-1923 Lithuanian language was not used in the documents. I do
know that most of the documents are written in German.

Also you'll observe that there are many "Second Internal Passport
Applications". Klaipeda region was under specific regulation during the
inter war period and issued their own internal passports, people who came >from
other parts of Lithuania and already had a valid Internal Passport, had to apply
for a new one.

translated, as well as those that will be translated in the future, please

Request German translation of Nadworna vital records #general

Dear Fellow Genners,

I would like to request your help is translating three vital records from
the town of Nadworna, Poland. First record is birth record of Moses
Halsband. I have done a loose translation of the record headings which are
in Latin, but am unable to read the record information, including
occupation. Second record is birth record of Zirel Halsband, daughter of
Aron Halsband. Text appears to be in German with German headings but I am
unable to read the record entry. Third entry is death record of Aron
Halsband (bottom of page). Need help with record entry.

Files are posted on Viewmate. Please provide a loose translation and contact
me with any questions. Your help is much appreciated.
