ViewMate Interpretation request -- soldier uniform #general

J Willner
 

I've posted a photo of some soldiers and I would like to know more
about the uniform soldiers are wearing: possible dates and service
unit as well as country of service. If anyone recognizes the
soldiers that would be an unexpected bonus !

Translation of soldier's name in top row left is Kalman Wolinsky
and translation of top row center name is Beryl Chemandels.

The photo is on ViewMate at the following address:

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much.

Moshe Peres(z) in Venice - 1484 same Moshe Peres(z) in Ribadavia, Spain - 1482? #sephardic

fred1279@...
 

Shalom everyone,

With reference my research into my maternal "Peres" side in NE
Italy, I finally seem to have found some relevant information
which had already been achieved by one other "Peres" descendant
which I recently came in contact with.

According to one Italian late researcher's publication relevant to
the Jewish presence on NE Italy, it appears that a Moshe Peres(z)
da Leon is listed in Venice in 1484. The aforementioned researcher
goes on claiming this Moshe Peres(z) da Leon moved soon after to
the Friuli area, thus generating the Peres descent in this specific
geographic location, where he is also thought to have converted to
Christianity in the City of Pordenone.

2 years earlier, a certain Moses Peres(z) was recorded as butler
for a nobleman in Ribadavia, NW Spain. Point to note - Ribadavia is
located in the Galicia District, whereas the Moshe Peres stated in
Teresina Degan's book seems to originate >from the Leon district
(adjacent to Galicia).

I would like to research the topic in further detail, mainly with
regards to the possible link between the Moshe Peres found in
Venice in 1484 and the one working in Ribadavia, Spain in 1482.

Any help and advise on the subject is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance and regards.

INTRO: Researching Wilhelm Alexander OPPENHEIM-Chemnitz ["Heidenheim, Oppenheim & Co.".] #germany

Jürgen Nitsche <junitsche58@...>
 

Dr Wilhelm Alexander OPPENHEIM and family

I am going to give a lecture about the Jewish families OPPENHEIM,
HEIDENHEIM and ROSENBERG in Chemnitz. I researched the life of the
Heidenheim family for the last 10 years. Now I want to research the life
of the Oppenheim family. Both families founded a textile company in
Chemnitz, named "Heidenheim, Oppenheim & Co.".

Hugo Max OPPENHEIM (1861-1921) was married with Betty MARON. They had
three children: Fritz (b. 1895), Wilhelm Alexander (b. 1897) and Anni
Luise (b. 1904).

I am trying to reconstruct the short life of Fritz OPPENHEIM, who died in
the fights of the World War I. Within a colloquium in Dresden (November,
21, 2014) I am going to present his biography and the biographies of his
cousins Heidenheim and Rosenberg. Walter and Karl Heidenheim and Hans
Rosenberg were also among the fallen jewish soldiers >from Chemnitz.

That`s why I am looking for more biographic data about the brothers Fritz
and Wilhelm Alexander OPPENHEIM. The younger brother was twice married.
With his second wife Ilsa Maria EINSTEIN (b. 1911) he had a son: Rainer
Fritz Alexander (b. 1937). Wilhelm Alexander died abt. 1941 in England.

I am looking for Rainer Fritz Alexander OPPENHEIM, who may live in the USA.

All advice and information are very welcome. Thank you very much in
advance!

Birth date issue for Leopold WOLF #general

John Anderson
 

I'm wondering if someone can figure this out without me having to send
away for 2 birth certificates. In trying to pin down the date of birth
of a distant cousin, Leopold WOLF, I have found 2 differing accounts:

New Jersey, Births and Christenings Index, 1660-1931 about Wolf
Name: Wolf
Gender: Male
Birth Date: 31 Jan 1875
Birth Place: Newark, Essex, New Jersey
Father's Name: David Wolf
Father's Age: 33
Father's Birth Place: Germany
Mother's name: Regina Lehman
Mother's Age: 29
Mother's Birth Place: Germany
FHL Film Number: 494186

New Jersey, Births and Christenings Index, 1660-1931
about Wolf
Name: Wolf
Gender: Male
Birth Date: 25 Feb 1875
Birth Place: Newark, Essex, New Jersey
Father's Name: David Wolf
Mother's name: R
FHL Film Number: 494177

The couple, David WOLF and Rachel LEHMAN, had 8 children, of whom Leopold
was the second oldest. The 1900 Federal census lists his birth as Jan 1875.
The World War I Draft Registration lists it as 25 Feb 1875. How can I best
reconcile the discrepancy?

when the date is converted using the year before or after 5635.

Granted guardianship of her own child? #general

Michael Gordy
 

On the Fulton History website, I found a newspaper entry >from 1918-19
pertaining to my GASTHALTER family. It's a legal notice stating
"Fannie Gasthalter, of Parksville [New York], was granted the
guardianship of Sallie Gasthalter. Sureties $1,000." Fannie (my
great-grandmother) was widowed in late 1915. One son was named
Solomon. He was later known as Sol (1905), but perhaps at age 13-14
he was known as Sallie? I know of no cousin named Sallie.

If this is her son Sol, why would she need to be granted guardianship?
Wouldn't a widowed mother automatically have that status?
