GREENBERG town of origin #lithuania

Herbert Lazerow
 

<< For a July 7 family reunion, I am trying to determine the hometown of
my maternal great grandparents, Aaron and Rachel (REICHSTEIN) GREENBERG.
Their dates are roughly 1845-1933 and 1850-1932 respectively. They had 10
children: two unknown who died in Europe plus Nathan (perhaps -- see below
-- born in Kovno 1874), Pauline (SCHER), 1875, Bertha/Becky/Brainke
(ROSENBERG), 1876, Yettie (KANE), 1879, Harry, 1880, Benjamin, 1885,
Simon, 1887, and Ada/Ida/Adil/Adeline (TULMAN), 1891 (in NY).
Neither was ever naturalized in the US. >>

Look for the U.S. naturalization petitions of their children.
True that the children may have been born in different towns than their
parents, so this is not as good as looking for the naturalization
petitions of their siblings. That is an alternative, but if their
siblings' petitions were filed before 9/1906, it would not have useful
information.
Another potential source would be the World War I draft
registrations of Aaron or his brothers.

Re: INTRO - Fritz LACHMANN cabaret artist #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Dear Reinhard, Welcome!

Please tell us more about your project regarding Jewish lawyers in
Berlin. This is a huge and important topic, and one that would interest
a great many of us. (Me, for instance: both my grandfathers were
lawyers, and one of them worked in Berlin for quite a while.)

Regarding your current search:

The vital records for Briesen/Brzezno, at least for the period
1874-1899, are in the Polish State Archive in Koszalin (formerly Koeslin
in Pomerania).

However, that may not be the place you're looking for. According to the
German Gedenkbuch:

http://www.bundesarchiv.de/gedenkbuch/directory.html

Reha JAEGER geb LACHMANN was born in Briesen in West Prussia, which is
now Wabrzezno. The civil vital records for that town are in the Polish
State Archive in Torun (formerly Thorn).

The vital records database of the Polish State Archives:

http://baza.archiwa.gov.pl/sezam/pradziad.php?l=en

Finally, have you entered Fritz LACHMANN at the JewishGen Family
Finder?

http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/

There are quite a few LACHMANN researchers out there.

I'm searching for details about the life of Fritz LACHMANN, supposedly

In 1932 he appeared in the cities of Marienburg, Koenigsberg and Breslau
in the eastern parts of Prussia. The first months of 1933 saw him in
Breslau. Afterwards he took part in at least one or two shows in Berlin.
For the time following I lost his track.
Around 1932 his mother -whose name is yet unknown to me- lived in Berlin.
His sister was Rosa (Reha) Jaeger born LACHMANN, born September 28, 1883
in Briesen (now Brzezno/Poland), the widow of a bank clerk.
from at least 1919 until 1935 her residence was in Berlin as well -
Mommsenstrasse 49 in the district of Charlottenburg.
She died March 2, 1943 in Auschwitz.
His brother Hermann LACHMANN was amerchant and amateur boxer in Breslau.
I contacted the archives in Brzezno but there was no hint available
about the LACHMANN family.
Fritz LACHMANN had a friend and correspondent in Berlin, a young lady
callesd Tamara Leonites, as it seems not of Jewish origins. Her fate
lies in disguise too.
Sooner or later I'll try to find out details about the life of certain
Jewish lawyers in Berlin as part of my interest to research the history
of all lawyers in Berlin. Every now and then, other people can be
covered by my interests as well, as it's the case today with my first
request for assistance.

Looking for Brooklyn business owner #general

Julia Lombardo <julialombardo@...>
 

Hi all!

I was wondering if anyone could suggest something..I am looking for family in
Brooklyn that owned/used to own a shoe store. The store was apparently registered
as an Orthopedics Shoe store called "ORLOVSKY Fashion & Ortho Shoe". The store was
located on Kings Highway, close to Coney Island. I have no exact address of the
store.

How can I go about finding who owns/owned the store? Is there a business bureau I
can call, or something like that?

Thank you!

Julia Lombardo

Suchava, Poland has been found #general

Helene Kenvin <hekenvin@...>
 

Yesterday I posted a query as to where Suchava, Poland might be. Bette (who did
not include her surname in her email) pointed out that two towns of this name
(listed as Suchawa, the Polish spelling) were in the Jewishgen Gazetteer, but
not in the Jewish Communities Database. Prior to posting my query, I had looked
in the latter, but not the former, which is why my search went awry. Bette
noted that the fact that the towns were not listed in the Jewish Communities
Database likely meant that they "did not have significant Jewish communities."
Well, now we know that there was at least one Jewish family (that of my
ancestor's wife) living in one of these towns.

Yehudah ben Shlomo was wonderfully persistent and found the two towns in a
non-Jewishgen database. I have thanked privately Bette and Yehudah and the
others who were kind enough to respond with suggestions.
