Recognize them? Trying to identify and/or locate these people or descendants #unitedkingdom

Madeleine Isenberg
 

This is my first contact with your SIG,

This is a photo I believe to be around 1947, when I was the
"bridesmaid" in the photo. The couple, to the best of my knowledge,
is a young (Polish? and) Jewish woman who was orphaned during WW II.
My late mother would tell me that such orphans could sometimes be
sponsored to come to England to work as domestics, probably after WW
II.

Accordingly, her parents (my grandparents, Annie and Israel SACKS)
sponsored her. I believe her name was Rosie Pearl, although I don't
know the correct spelling of that family name. She married "Jack" who
was a butcher at SCHLAGMAN's the Butcher's on Oldhill Street, near
Stamford Hill in London, UK. Not sure if he was actually part of the
Schlagman family. If they are still alive, they may be in their
eighties.

As a child I was always curious about Jack having an indentation at
the top of his forehead, as if a bullet might have once gotten lodged
there. That is a distinctive identifying mark!

I have tried unsuccessfully to see if the archives of the Jewish
Chronicle might help, but not with the information I have provided
here.

I would love to identify these people and/or find out what happened to
them since my family immigrated to the USA in 1951.

I hope someone will be able to recognize them and provide information.
I have posted the photo on Viewmate as

Thanks in advance,

Hi Martin,

Amkha was a cryptonym word that have been used to identify a Jew.
By the way of introduction to a person with Polish (Christian) name and
surname but Jewish looks, I could ask him a magic word "Amkha"? that only a
Jew suppose to know it and produce an answer with a smile -"Amkha"!.

Actually, the tradition was not eating meat on Fridays, not fasting. There's
an interesting NPR article on the subject:

As a child in Brooklyn in the 1950's I recall the "fish man" coming around in
his truck every Friday & selling fish to all the housewives.

Moses and Isaac OPPENHEIMER from Battenberg/Battenfeld/Berghofen #general

Fred Half
 

Hello all,

I am trying to find other people who have the subject family in their tree.
Moses OPPENHEIMER is my gggrandfather. I know that Moses OPPENHEIMER was
born 25 September 1840 supposedly in Battenberg (but could have been anywhere
in the small towns of that area) the son of Isaac and Nannie (nee DRUCKER)
OPPENHEIMER. Isaac is buried in Pittsburgh, PA, the tombstone having the dates
1801-1890. I don't know anything else about Nannie. Moses supposedly came to
the US in about 1860 and by 2 June 1869 was in Pittsburgh, PA because he
married Julia FRANK on that date.

I have complete data of his three children but am looking for information about
his father Isaac, mother Nannie, uncles or aunts (know of one brother K(C)oppel)
and especially siblings. >from some research a cousin did in Germany, there
seems to not be any records in Marburg.

He had seven siblings; three brothers (Ben, Henry, and Saul) and four sisters
(Bertha(Bette), Henrietta(Yetta), Setta, Amalia(Mollie)). All the siblings were
born outside the US (locations unknown).

Ben

Married, is buried in Pittsburgh, PA. Had four children (Daniel W, Jacob, Nora,
and Bertha L). Bertha died in infancy in 1870. Daniel (d 1929) and Jacob
(d 1937) are buried in Pittsburgh, PA. Do not know anything else. Nora married
and descendants are named SPEYER and SUNSTEIN.

Bertha (Bette)

Bertha married Herman SCHEUR and other descendant names are JACOBY, BLUMENTHAL,
CUDEN, & AURBACH

Henry

Married Amanda ELLINGER >from Baltimore, MD. They had four children (Sidney,
William, Nan, and Olive). Know nothing about Sidney, William died in 1916 and
is buried in Pittsburgh, PA, Nan never married and died in 1929 and is buried
in Pittsburgh, PA. Olive married Max OBORNDORF and had descendants named
GREENBAUM and SOULE.

Henrietta (Yetta)

Married Meyer AMBERG and also had descendants named KOCH, BERKMAN, BROIDO,
CANT, & ROSENTHAL

Setta

Married Moses ARNOLD. Buried in Pittsburgh, PA

Amalia (Mollie)

Married Moses HERZOG and had three girls Daisy, Mae, and Nannie. Nannie died in
infancy and other descendants are named LEVY, DE ROY, & RASCHBAUM. Buried in
Pittsburgh, PA

Saul

This information is being posted to Early American and German Sig. Any
information on descendants or ancestors would be appreciated. Please respond
privately unless useful to a broader audience. Thanks in advance.

New von Schlieben Maps: Przemysl, Rzeszow, Sanok, Tarnow, Bochnia, Wadowice, Nowy Sacz, Jaslo circles added to GG Map Room #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

There are two new von Schlieben maps just uploaded to the Gesher Galicia
Cadastral Map Room.

These lithographed black and white maps with dashed kreis (administrative
circle) boundaries are >from an atlas of Europe published by Goschen of
Leipzig about 1828 and lithographed by Wilhelm Ernst August von Schlieben
(1781~1839). The paper maps detail all major and many minor towns (mostly
with Polish spelling), key roads, rivers and lakes, kreis boundaries, and a
scale bar in miles. Gesher Galicia currently has four of the five maps in
the series. These maps are an excellent resource for discovering tiny
villages adjacent to larger shtetls or towns.

New additions:

The Five Galician Kreise map covers five adjacent "circles" of Galicia,
numbered here with head cities of 6: Tarnow (Tarnau, Tarnow), including
Ropczyce; 7: Bochnia, including Wojnicz and Wieliczka; 8: Wadowice (Wadowice),
including Zywiec and Oswiecim; 9: Nowy Sacz (Sandecz), including Nowy Targ;
10: Jaslo (Jaslo), including Biecz and Kolaczyce.

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-kreis-1828-4/

The next new map covers three (numbered) "circles" - 4: Przemysl, including
Jaroslaw and Mosciska; 5: Rzeszow, including Lancut and Lezajsk; 11: Sanok,
including Dobromil and Rymanow.

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-kreis-1828-3/

These maps join the other von Schlieben maps already on our site:

Kreise 1, 2, 3 - 1: Lemberg (Lwow, Lviv, Lvov); 2: Zloczow (Zolochiv),
including Brody and Busk; 3: Zo³kiew (Zhovkva, Zholkva), including Belz and
Rawa Ruska.

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-kreis-1828-1/

Kreise 12, 13, 17 - 12: Sambor (Sambir), including Drohobycz; 13: Stryj
(Stryi, Stry), including Kalush and Bukachivtsi; 17: Stanislawow
(Ivano-Frankivsk, Stanyslaviv, Stanislau), including Monastyryska.

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-kreis-1828-2/

Thanks to Jay Osborn for the postings and Alex Feller who researched
and acquired the maps at public auction. (We hope to complete the set
with the missing fifth one soon.)
