Velikiy Berezne aka NagyBerezne Census #hungary

I wonder if anyone has been lucky enough to gain access to the 1869
Magyar Census for this town in modern day subcarpathian Ukraine.
If so, I would be happy to meet expenses in order to share access.
Hopefully, Ari Dale

Trying to trace a Asta COHN who was last known to be residng in Glasgow
in 1941 at a Dr Mann's residence eithe rat 46 Queen Mary Avenue Glasgow
or 182 Queen Drive Glasgow. I have been through the Scottish records in
registrar house Edinburgh looking for marriage or death but have drawn a
blank. May be she went down to England. She was born either 1917 or 1922
Her mothers name was Rebekka COHN
Sorry that is all the information I have. Can anybody be of any
assistance

The information above is all we have on Asta COHN. Did she change name
on getting married, leave the UK for another country? It is also
possible that she died shortly after WWII? We hope very much that
someone can provide additional information.

There's a link to it >from the Cemeteries section of the JewishGen

It states that the old Jewish cemetery in Lippstadt was used
until 1832; the new one, thereafter. Best,

Is there only one Jewish cemetery in Lippstadt that was used in
the late 1920s? The photo is dated 1938, so I guess someone
took it shortly before they left Germany. I found a website which
spoke about the older cemetery and newer cemetery, but none of
the links helped me,
probably due to my poor German. I'd like to know which cemetery
my great-grandparents are buried in. Hopefully, unlike most of
my ancestors, hopefully their headstone is still there.

Searching SZACHER family in Brzesc #belarus

WALTER ELIAS
 

Hello BelarusSIG


I am researching the SZACHER family >from Brzesc.

My wife's grandmothers were sisters Rochma HOFFER nee SZACHER and Bluma
GREEN nee SZACHER. We believe they were born and possibly married in Brzesc
esc.

Rochma SZACHER b. around 1885 married David HOFFER b. 1879 and Bluma SZACHER
b. around 1899 married Abraham GREEN b.1893. According to Yad Vashem
testimony the parents of Rochma and Bluma are possibly Schlomo and Esther


As far as I know Rochma HOFFER nee SZACHER and Bluma GREEN nee SZACHER moved
to Czestochowa and either were killed in the city or were transported to
Treblinka in 1942-3. I can not find any of their birth or marriage records
in Czestochowa so I am investigating whether these records may be in Brzesc
My goal is to find the birth and marriage records of Rochma and Bluma.
I also want to identify their parents and determine who their other siblings
were.

Thanks...Walter

Searching FERDINAND Family #belarus

Gregory Ferdinand <gregory.ferdinand@...>
 

Hello,

I just became a member of JewishGen yesterday. I joined in the hope of
discovering more about my ancestry. Prior to joining I did some work
on Ancestry.com. Unfortunately I could not find any relevant
information about the Ferdinand family beyond my grandfather. The
following summarizes what I have learned.

1. His name in the US was Lewis FERDINAND
2. I found a WW1 draft Registration Card for both Lewis and Joseph
Ferdinand in which they seek deferment based on the fact that they
support their parents. Unfortunately the parents are not identified.
3. My father, Eugene was one of Lewis' two sons. He was born in 1919.
The other son Gerald, my uncle was born a few years later. Gerald's
children (my cousins) are all accounted for as are their children and
grandchildren.
4. Lewis was born in Minsk Russia in 1894 and immigrated to the US as
a child based on the census records I uncovered.
5. Lewis was married to Beatrice Kaufman (Bertha, Birdie) and lived in
and around Essex County NJ.
6. In searching the Ellis Island records I found a Lieb FERDINAND
arriving on the SS Pennsylvania in 1902 accompanied by his mother
Raschelle, brother Joseph and sister Sossi. His DOB is consistent
with my research. The record indicates that the fare was paid by
Raschelle's husband who was not listed on the manifest. Most likely
he preceded her to the USA.
I'm pretty sure Leib became/is Lewis but I would like to find
information on his Russian lineage and siblings.

I would be grateful for any assistance your group can provide.

Dear All,
For those of you who have plans to travel to Belarus in the first half of
May.The world hockey championship will be held in Minsk in May
lMore than 20,000 visitors are expected to come to Minsk during that time.
Almost all hotels in Minsk are already booked for those dates.
But this fact shouldn't result in cancellation or modification of your plans,
because there is other alternative to Minsk hotels such as Bed and Breakfast
Inns, which is a new growing trend in Belarus.Staying in such places will only
enhance your trip, and will add to it more flavors and colors. While it offers
all conveniences of modern life, it will allow you to experience old shtetl life
as your ancestors used to live. Usually Inns are located in picturesque places
and surrounded by nature. The owners cook homemade food using homegrown organic
produce. Our past clients were very happy with this type of accommodation.
JHRG cooperates with more than 100 Bed and Breakfast Inns in Belarus.

whom I could not find any evidence of after he left Ellis Island.

I received so many helpful suggestions and tips >from so many different
people. I have now called NARA to order the file on Itic, and
although I have not heard back >from them yet, I am hoping to soon. (I
called a week ago to speak to someone, but no one has yet returned my
call---is that unusual?)

Once I get the file, I will report back to let those who helped me
know what I have found.

I am so grateful to you all for your help.
