Re: Looking for the book: Offenbach (Die Juedischen Buerger von Offenbach/Glan) #germany

Gerhard Buck <buckidstein@...>
 

It is no wonder that you could not find this work by Gerhard
Voss. Probably the correct title is "Juden in Offenbach". This is an
unpublished manuscript written before 1996. A copy is kept by the
Protestant church of Offenbach:
http://www.ekir.de/offenbach/evkirche.htm

This website impresses by its reports about activities to honor the
former Jewish inhabitants. Under "Archiv" and #41 you find a short
article with the first title and the address of Gerhard Voss in Offenbach.

My best wishes for the new year to you all!

Viewmate Translation-Yiddish #general

Dear Fellow Jewish Genners,

I've posted 1 document in Yiddish for which I need a loose translation. It
is on ViewMate at the following address ...

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM25437

It relates to the 15th Anniversary of a Jewish Library in Aleksandrow Kujawski,
Poland. I believe it describes Jewish life in this town where my father was born.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much for your assistance.

Albert Nathan & Family, Chicago #general

rv Kaplan
 

Thanks to everyone who responded to my enquiry about Albert Nathan of Chicago, who
married my grandfather's cousin, Esther Kaplan >from Glasgow.

I've now been guided back to Albert's family, who came to the US >from Hungary in
1902 - don't need any more on this family for the moment.

Now looking for present-day relatives on the Nathan side and working through the
Family Tree of the Jewish People listings for this family.

Re: Records from School for the Improved Instruction for Deaf Mutes #general

Sue Martin
 

from my husband, who was on the faculty at Gallaudet: The old Lexington School
for the Deaf still exists but has moved to a new address; it is now in Jackson
Heights at 30th Ave and 75th St. I would assume that someone at the school could
tell where the old records are located; the phone there is 718-350-3270. Let me
know what happens because I have a close colleague who works there and could
suggest how to follow up if he gets no help >from a phone call, asking for someone
to help with back records.

Poland unknown place name - Belyez #general

Malcolm Courtney <malcolm.courtney@...>
 

Hello

I have recently discovered U.S. Naturalisation documents for a member of my family,
Sura Erlichmann, listing her place of birth as "Belyez, Poland".

As this application is typed, I have not made a mistake with transcription, but
nevertheless cannot find it when Google'd. She also states on the form that she
arrived in New York on the ship S.S. Finland, via Antwerp, on August 21 1920. I
have been totally unable to find her on Ellis Island, nor does this particular ship
show as having arrived at New York at the date she states. It is all a bit of a
mystery.

Can any genner give me any information, or help, on this please?

Thank you!

Thank you to all who have weighed in with translations and other valuable insights on
this database. While it appears that the database is not what I thought it was, it's
still a mystery to me, but the translation of the word "Hallenschmuck" is
fascinating.
