The most obvious suggestion is the large & important town of Wloclawek,
74 miles NNE of Kalisz. However its records, if not in Wloclaawek
itself, are more likely to be in the Polish capital, Warsaw, than in
Kalisz.

Help in finding town and immigration record, from naturalization papers. #lithuania

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - I found the naturalization papers for a Frank London, in Wilson,
NC, which shows that he was born in "Kisnenor" Russia. I can't find a
match, for such a town. I suspect it's in Lithuania, but I'm not
positive. Any help with what the town name might be? The
naturalization papers claim that his wife Ida, was also born in
Kisnenor, but the 1920 census, implies that she was born in Slobodka,
Lithuania. See this link:

http://web.mit.edu/london/www/census.jpg

The naturalization papers states that he arrived Mar 22, 1905, on the
vessel Friesland, in the port of Philadelphia, >from Liverpool. But I
can't find that ship arriving on that date, and can't find a good match
for Frank London anywhere. See the naturalization papers here:

http://web.mit.edu/london/www/naturalization.jpg

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm trying to get photographs of their gravestones, to see if the
Hebrew names will help find them. Thanks.

JGSGW February 9, 2014 meeting announcement #general

Robin Meltzer
 

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington will host its February 2014
meeting on Sunday, February 9, 2014 at 1:00 pm at the City of Fairfax Regional
Library,10360 North St. Fairfax, VA 22030

Program, Part 1: Holocaust Research for the Genealogist--Past, Present and Future
Speaker: Peter Lande.

20 years ago, Holocaust researchers had few resources available, and even less on
the web. Today, research is much easier. Sources such as JewishGen, Yad Vashem,
various online national databases, printed sources containing databases for
individual concentration camps and other collections are readily available.
However, access to the International Tracing Service collection, the largest source
of information, remains difficult unless one physically visits the sites where this
material is available. Looking ahead, one can expect easier access and the release
of more information on Eastern European material including the tens of thousands of
Jews who fled eastward ahead of the Germans.

Peter Lande was born in Berlin of German parents and came to the United States as a
child in 1937. His father had been a professor and politician, and a member of the
Reichsrat for Prussia. Peter Lande received a BA >from Haverford College in 1952 and
a MA >from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. He also studied at Hamburg
University on a Fulbright grant. He joined the Foreign Service of the Department of
State in 1956, serving in New Zealand, Germany, Japan, India, Canada and Egypt, as
well as in senior positions in the Department. He retired in 1988 as Economic
Minister in the US Embassy in Cairo.

Since retirement, he has been active in genealogy research, writing and lecturing,
with special emphasis on Holocaust records. He has worked as a volunteer at the
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. since its opening 20
years ago. In July 2001 he received a Lifetime Achievement Award >from the
International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies for work in identifying
sources of information on Holocaust victims and survivors.

Program, Part 2: Resources at the Fairfax City Library
Speaker: Alan Rems

Author and historian Alan Rems will present works >from the library's collection
that are especially important for genealogy research and will deepen an
understanding of the world our ancestors came from. Items include the YIVO
Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe, books about specific Jewish communities,
and Holocaust-related works. The presentation will be followed by a tour of the
Virginia Room.

Both programs are free and open to the public.

Zion Hebrew Institute of the Bronx #general

 

I am searching for information about this organization, which appears to be an
educational organization >from what I was able to find on the web. I do not know if
it is still in existence. My great-grandfather, Jacob Alpert, is buried in a
section of Riverside Cemetery in Saddlebrook, New Jersey that is owned by Hebrew
Zion. He was buried there in 1929 after living at 1402 Bristow St. in the Bronx. I
am wondering if records might exist that would identify his relationship to this
organization and if so, how I might access them. Thank you.

Moritz KARF and Regina SEELIG #germany

Linda Shefler
 

According to the 1902 marriage records of Schluchtern, Moritz KARF (1864)
of Beckrath married Regina SEELIG (1866) of Schluchtern. I believe
Moritz's mother's maiden name was BLOCK. Is anyone familiar with the
family of Moritz and Regina? Regina is member of my MARX family.
Many thanks for you time.

An excellent (and completely free) resource for Austrailian research,including
historical newspapers, photographs, maps, music and archives, is Trove.....

Thanks but I have already mined Trove extensively and I agree it is very helpful.
But it does not have the modern information I need. Rootsweb gave me the references
to the handful of death notices >from the 1980s and 1990s in the Sydney Morning
Herald which as I said in my first note is the primary objective. I am hoping
someone can tell me how to access these 1980s-1990s death notices and that they
might yield names of children or details to link up with the modern families.

Thank you.

INTRO - GAERTNER family of Elberfeld and Rhaunen 1800s #germany

MLGaertner@...
 

Hello GerSig,
I have been reading the mailing list messages for several months. I began
my genealogical research 35 years ago. I consider myself a beginner in
German Jewish Genealogical research.
Originally >from suburban NYC area, I now live for 10 years in Kahana,
Maui, Hawaii, USA. My only language is English. I consider myself
advanced in using a computer. My experience in using the Internet is extensive.

I have identified my husband's Great-Grandparents:
Philipp GAERTNER - born Rhaunen, Birkefeld, Rheinland-Pfalz 10 Aug 1829
died Elberfeld (now Wupertal), Nordrhein-Westfalen 7 Dec 1907
Philipp is buried at Weinberg Cemetery, Elberfeld.

Lisette GAERTNER, born CAHN daughter of Isaak Jakob CAHN and his wife
Sybille. I can find no death record in Elberfeld for Lisette; she
died after Philipp.

Philipp and Lisette GAERTNER had 3 children:
Julius GAERTNER - born 1863 Elberfeld, came to New York City, USA in 1880s,
died New Jersey in 1946.
Ida GAERTNER - born 1869 Elberfeld. Married Moritz LIEBERG. Ida died 1935
in Kassel, Hessen, Germany.
Arthur GAERTNER - maybe born after Ida - no information known

My research goals are to find Philipp GAERTNER's ancestors, as well as to
locate records of Lisette CAHN GAERTNER.
My JGFF research ID# is 463964
