finding a cemetery for the SCHRAM or SCHRAMM family probably in Haguenau or Schweighouse. #germany

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I will be traveling to the Alsace region in late August 2013 (August 24-26)
in search of my great-great-great grandparents.

I have conflicting answers to my research, and would like to find someone to
help us answer my questions and find a cemetery for the SCHRAM or SCHRAMM
family probably in Haguenau or Schweighouse.

Here is what I know:
My great grandmother was Belle SCHRAM (born in 1896 and buried in Galveston,
Texas in 2002) and her parents were Meyer SCHRAM (born November 28, 1830 in
Alsace, France) married to Henrietta MAYER (1833-1903). All are buried in Galveston, Texas.

My problem is that everything I research says that Meyer SCHRAM's father was
Felix P. SCHRAMM (1814-?) married to Ruth MEYER; however, I have found
people that have told me that there is a Marc Meyer SCHRAM born November 28,
1830 whose father is Baruch SCHRAMM born around 1796 married to Frederique MEYER.

I cannot figure out how Baruch SCHRAM could be related, but also how Marc
Meyer SCHRAM and Meyer SCHRAM have the same birthdates but different
fathers.

Please advise as to how I can unravel these questions, and find a cemetery
that has a SCHRAM or SCHRAMM family related to us. Thank you.

Gerhard Buck posted last week about the Hessian Gatermann films being
put on-line. Schluechtern's BMD registers for 1826-1927 are there, and
the catalog entry indicates that Elm is included.

Most likely he was a student in a yeshiva. Most of the bigger towns had
yeshivas and crown rabbinate rabbis (officially appointed rabbis who took care
of government record-keeping) as well as synagogue rabbis, as did Mogilev,
Bobruisk, Gomel and a host of other places.Many of those who studied in the
yeshivas became rabbis, dayanim (religious court judges, usually they were
also rabbis), or melamedim (teachers in other Jewish schools).
Those individuals considered brilliant students later attended larger more
famous yeshivas in larger towns for advanced studying.One might check the old
1905 edition of the Jewish Encyclopedia (online) to read about the towns in
question.In Mogilev, as far as academic schools, there was the Classical School
that was very famous even into modern times -it might still exist. Those who
graduated with a gold medal could go study in Moscow, while 2nd place silver
medalists went to St. Petersburg for advanced education. We had relatives who
earned both gold and silver and went to university in Moscow and St. P, when
it was difficult for Jews to get internal residence permits in those places.

Vilnius internal passport records, 1919-1940, have been added to the database #belarus

Howard Margol
 

3,984 internal passport records, 1919-1940, have been added to the
JewishGen Lithuania Database and are now available to researchers.

The records are for Jews who applied for their internal passport in the
following places - Panevezys, Siauliai District, Klaipeda, and the city of

Vilnius. A wealth of information is included in these records.

The Vilnius I.P. records include many Jews who came >from various places in

Belarus.

Even if your ancestor did not live in either of those places, it is a good

idea to do a surname search of the database anyway. In many cases, the
place where the person was born or previously lived, is included. This is

particular true in the case of those who applied for their internal passport
in Vilnius. A large percentage of those individuals came >from somewhere else.


A large percentage of the individual files include other documents. If you

find a record of your ancestor, you can contact the archive and obtain a

copy of every page in every document, including photographs.

For a full explanation of the internal passport project; to see samples of

the various documents in the files; and for instructions on contacting the=

archive; please go to
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Lithuania/InternalPassports.htm

As of June 30, 2013, a total of 116,191 internal passport records have
been translated and, 87,403 of those records are included in the searchable

database. There is an 18 month delay between the date the records are
translate and the date they are included in the database.

Looking for information on an uncle Hyman ISRAEL. Also know as Hyman A.
ISRAEL.
Hyman ISRAEL was born in Baltimore, MD on Aug.10, 1914 the son of Jacob and
Ida ISRAEL.
On his World War 2 Army Enlistment Record he stated he was single.

I know that he died before 2000. He may have lived in New York. All the
Hyman ISRAELs I have seen on Ancestry do not appear to be my relative.
Does anyone know when he died or if he was married and had descendants?
