Seeking Information about Deceased Air Force Veteran #general

Phyllis Simon
 

I am looking for a long-lost relative, Irwin M. GRUSKY, who lived with
his parents (Morris and Sarah/Sally) and sister (Claire) in Brooklyn,
NY. Irwin was born in 1930, graduated >from NYU in '51 (Psychology), and
entered the Air Force in 1952, retired 1971, and died in 2005. Any
information about him would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Re: searching for ROTH - update #general

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

To all who have written me, thank you so much for your help! I believe
I may have stumbled on to the answer but I have yet to find the
conclusive evidence for it. I found a Morris and Fannie HORN living
with someone who appears to be my g-g-g grandfather in the 1905 NY
Census at an address right nearby to 1952 2nd Ave. (this was the
correct address as I misread Ave. as Str.).

Problem is I lose track of this Morris and Fannie before 1900 and
after 1920. I think Fannie died between 1920 and 1930 but I can't find
a death record that would fit.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated again.

Thanks!!

Best,

In addition to Phyllis's recommendations, I would also suggest a search
Of the 1905, 1915 and 1925 NEW YORK State Censuses which can also be
Found on http://www.stevemorse.org

find him.If anyone has any ideas or who might be connected to this

first michael...i would try the 1900 census for the daughter, if you
know the given names of the daughter, since you suspect she married
ROTH, and you know she was born in romania.
Second, if you suspect she might have married in NYC, try
italiangen.org's bride index for the few years before 1898.
Third, since roth is such a common name, i tried the search by address.
Here's what i did:
1. Went to google.maps.com for the location and found that 1852 Second
Ave was between 95/96th streets.
2. Went to stevemorse.org and looked for the 1900 census ED for that
address (found EDs 880/881)
3. Went to ancestry.com to browse the census EDs: clicked on search>
federal census>1900 census>browse EDs.
4. I found the address on page 58 of ED 880, but there were only
german and irish immigrants listed, no Roths, no romanians. I suspect
the address you have is incorrect.

Deaths on board ships taking immigrants to USA from Hamburg #general

Sheila Brodie
 

My great aunt Estera WAXMAN got on board the Pennsylvania in Hamburg in May
1907 with 3 children but I can only find records for 2 in Philadelphia where
she was headed. I have checked all the records I can think of including
Pennsylvania death records to try and find out what happened to the third
child but with no success.

I wondered if he died on board ship. How do you go about trying to find out
if someone died aboard an immigrant ship?

Thanks

[Slovak Republic] Yad Vashem Online Exhibit of The Story of the Jewish Community of Bratislava #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Yad Vashem has a new online exhibit of the Story of the Jewish Community of
Bratislava. On the eve of the Holocaust, Bratislava had the largest Jewish
population in the Slovak Republic, 15,000 people. As a result of the
creation of an independent Slovak State in March 1939, the Jews of
Bratislava were subjected to discriminatory practices and persecution. By
the March 1, 1942, nearly half of the city's Jews had been evicted, and
dispersed in smaller towns across the country. Many of the Jews of
Bratislava were deported to the death camps in Poland in 1942. Most
Slovakian Jews were murdered in the Holocaust.

The Yad Vashem story of the Jewish Community of Bratislava is divided into
four areas: before, during and after the Holocaust and the legacies remain.

Research BAER family: Alvin and Raphael #general

Jacques-Free
 

I'm researching the descendancy of my ggfather Adolphe BAER siblings who
left Alsace to Louisiana between 1850 and 1900 and particulary Isaac BAER
(1853-1922) spouse of Maud Marx in Baltimore (1870-1929)

They had four children, two daughters, Peola and Rosalynd and two sons,
Alvin Harry and Raphael

Via Ancestry I found the descendancy of Peola and Rosalynd, and also
descendancy of Pauline BAER in Louisiana (sister of Isaac) and Leopold BAER
(brother of Isaac) in Louisiana and later in Houston.

I try to find more about Alvin and Raphael and I still know:
- Alvin Harry (1893 Monroe) died between 1950 (present in Los Angeles with
his second wife Peggy X) and 1953 (death of his brother Raphael) had two
children (Barbara, William J.)>from his first marriage with Janet GREENBERG
and one (Richard born abt 1939) >from his second marriage with Peggy (or
Peggie) X born abt 1816 in Seattle
- Raphael (1904 Monroe-1953 Troup, Georgia) married with Margareth MORGAN
(1935-1940) one son John born after 1940; Margareth Morgan and her son were
in Atlanta in 1958

Any new information will be welcome

Kind regards

Gesher Galicia is saddened by the sudden death of our longtime member
Dr. Karl Seligman on Friday night, December 13, 2013.

Karl was the beloved husband of Jo Mintz-Seligman; father of Dean
Seligman, Dan Seligman, David (Adriana) Seligman, and Susan Collins
Hamilton; grandfather of three and great-grandfather of one.

He was a hard-working and devoted participant in many Galician
indexing projects, especially those involving Zbaraz and Tarnopol
Holocaust-era records. On the Tarnopol death records he contributed
meticulously to working out what the stated causes of death were and
what the present-day medical terms for them would be. Once a project
was finished, he would also ask if there was more work he could do. He
said that he had benefited >from the genealogical research conducted by
others, and he wanted to pay things back.

He was also a member of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles
and had only recently attended our December Hanukkah Party. He will
be missed by many of us in the genealogical community. May his memory
be a blessing.

Update on Search for M. ROTH #romania

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

To all who have written me, thank you so much for your help! I believe
I may have stumbled on to the answer but I have yet to find the
conclusive evidence for it. I found a Morris and Fannie HORN living
with someone who appears to be my g-g-g grandfather in the 1905 NY
Census at an address right nearby to 1952 2nd Ave. (this was the
correct address as I misread Ave. as Str.).

Problem is I lose track of this Morris and Fannie before 1900 and
after 1920. I think Fannie died between 1920 and 1930 but I can't find
a death record that would fit.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated again.

Thanks!!
