Subject: More on Jewish soldiers serving in Franz Yosef's army #galicia

Madeleine Isenberg
 

I subscribe to several discussion groups and earlier this month
responded to a query in Gesher Galicia, posted on October 6, 2018,
namely, "Subject: Jewish soldiers serving in Franz Yosef's army."

I responded back referring to a dual language (German/English) book
I own, published in 1989, by Dr. Erwin A. SCHMIDL, with the English
title, "Jews in the Habsburg Armed Forces, 1788-1918."

Since that posting, I was inundated by interested individuals asking
how they could get a copy (either impossible or very expensive); some
wanting to find out if their family member's name was mentioned; and
some sending me histories of their soldier-relative.

To help them, I copied out the list of names in the book and created a
PDF of it. The problem then became, how do I make this available to
people? Since the initial query was >from Gesher Galicia, and thinking
Poland, I decided to post it at the bottom of this page of my only
Polish KehilaLinks site
(https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/nowy_targ/Nowy_Targ-Other.html).

I also managed to contact the writer himself, and Dr. Erwin A. SCHMIDL
was very gracious in also providing me with the similar index list for
his newer book entitled, "Habsburgs Juedische Soldaten, 1848-1918."
This book, published in 2014, is entirely in German, but Dr. SCHMIDL
is working on an extended English version that is due out sometime
2019-2010. In the meantime, he sent me the similar list of names and
places in the existing German language book. This list (in PDF format)
has also been added at the end of the same webpage,
https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/nowy_targ/Nowy_Targ-Other.html

Dr. SCHMIDL (erwin.schmidl@gmail.com) added that he would
welcome receipt of soldier-histories >from those who have them.

Subject: Question re: Immigration Ports of Entry
From: David Osachy <osachy@gmail.com>
Date: Sat, 20 Oct 2018 16:56:09 -0400
X-Message-Number: 1

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone explain (or offer a theory) why a Romanian Jewish immigrant c=
oming
from Europe in 1903, whose final destination was New York City or
Pittsburgh, would disembark at the port of St. John in New Brunswick,
Canada, then travel overland through Quebec and enter the United
States at St. Albans, Vermont?

What could that strange route be about? Why not go straight to Ellis
Island? Was this an issue of money, paperwork, or perhaps something
else? If it helps, the ship was the Lake Megantic, which I am
guessing sailed >from Liverpool though I am not sure.

Thank you in advance,

Rabbi David Osachy
Jacksonville, Florida

Hello,
My family came in 1900 and 1903 traveling that exact route >from Belarus. I am
assuming it was cheaper that way. My grandmother traveled with five children in
1903 and they came in late December which must have been still cheaper. They
were brave people.
Regards,

Ruth

Hi Everyone,
=20
Can anyone explain (or offer a theory) why a Romanian Jewish immigrant com=
ing
from Europe in 1903, whose final destination was New York City or
Pittsburgh, would disembark at the port of St. John in New Brunswick,
Canada, then travel overland through Quebec and enter the United
States at St. Albans, Vermont?
=20
What could that strange route be about? Why not go straight to Ellis
Island? Was this an issue of money, paperwork, or perhaps something
else? If it helps, the ship was the Lake Megantic, which I am
guessing sailed >from Liverpool though I am not sure.

Thank you in advance,

Searching for information about Izso REITER #hungary

Amit N
 

Hi,

I believe I had managed to identify someone in an un-named family
photo as Izso REITER. I suppose the first name is a short for Izidor.
Now I am looking for any information about him. He was the son of Mari
and Mano REITER who probably lived in Szeged, Hungary, and I assume he
was born somewhere between 1870-1890.
Unfortunately, my search in JewishGen records did not bring up any
records with his name.
Does anyone have any information about this man? Does anyone here have
him on their family tree? I'm very interested.

Thank you,
Amit Naor
