Re: SCHWABACHER m. ? and COHN m. SCHWABACHER #general

John Anderson
 

I wish to thank all the people who responded to my questions about Ferdinand
SCHWABACHER and Leah SCHWABACHER COHN. You have given me plenty to think
about.

Since I still cannot find when or where Ferdinand or Leah SCHWABACHER COHN
died, I am intrigued by this possibility: Ferdinand was born in 1882 in
Alabama to Julius SCHWABACHER and Barbara WOLF; Leah was born in 1890 in
Mississippi to Urias SCHWABACHER and Delphine LEVY, but the family relocated
to Alabama shortly thereafter. Julius and Urias were brothers, thus making
Ferdinand and Leah first cousins. Does anyone think it possible that after
Leah was widowed in 1932 that she ended up living with her cousin Ferdinand
in New Jersey? The 1940 census has Ferdinand living in Asbury Park, NJ,
"married" to a Leah. The dates of birth are off, but that often happens when
self-reporting. In addition, this Leah is listed as Leah D., born in New
Jersey. I cannot find any indication that Ferdinand married. It's very
puzzling.

How to change a ViewMate language request #general

Sam Eneman
 

Friends,

Through no fault of their own, people sometimes choose the wrong
language category for their ViewMate submissions.

If you find out that's the case, you can easily change the language --
or any other information in your submission. For directions, on the
ViewMate FAQs page, under "Managing Your Images," see the question:
"How do I make changes to a submission that's on the Image Gallery
viewing page."

Thanks,

Sam Eneman

Finding a death date in NYC #general

Liz Hanellin
 

Hello all,

My great grandmother, Rebecca POPKIN, died sometime between August 1962 and
September 1963, but I don't have a specific date and I don't know where she
is buried. As far as I know, she was living in Brooklyn at the time of her
death, but I don't have a record of this.

I'm not sure it's relevant to finding her death record, but POPKIN is her
second married name. She was born ELFMAN and was first married to SHAYNES
(which has many alternate spellings).

Does anyone have advice for me on how to find her death information?

Thanks in advance.

Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland #general

Lande
 

There are several online sources of information on German Jewish Holocaust
victims and one can locate scattered information on those who emigrated.
However, there is virtually no public information on those who perished
within Germany and it is extremely difficult to access such information.

Under close Gestapo supervision, the Reichsvereinigung der Juden in
Deutschland (RJD), with mandatory membership for all Jews, regardless of
citizenship, resident in Germany, maintained individual membership card
files >from 1938 to 1942. These card files, available in the huge
International Tracing Service collection, note names, dates and place of
birth and residence, and, where reported >from local branches, changes such
as emigration, deportation or death within Germany.

In connection with the research for my article in the Spring issue of
Avotaynu, which dealt with the overall fate of German Jews during the
Holocaust, I developed a database which includes all 2,805 RJD names running
from Laarsen through Lysko. To my surprise I found that roughly 60 percent
of registrants died within Germany, compared to 16% who were deported and 9%
who emigrated, with the remainder unknown.

Not surprisingly, many of the German Jewish residents had been born outside
Germany, especially in what is now Poland, particularly the Posen area.
However, the range of birthplaces is wide, ranging >from Odessa, London, New
York and Galveston.

This database is available at http://tinyurl.com/Reichsvereinigung-L

I would be happy to furnish the
complete database to anyone who wants it for any purpose. Requests for
copies of individual cards may be sent to me at plande@ushmm.org, but please
be merciful in your requests, e.g. not every Levy.

I have copied music at my choir just by holding the phone
above the music - the definition of digital cameras is
amazing - far better than the Canon Sureshot that I used to have.

Sokolow Malopolski 1853 Cadastral Map Added to Gesher Galicia's Map Room #poland

Pamela Weisberger
 

A cadastral map of Sokolow Malopolski 1853 has been added to the
Gesher Galicia Cadastral Map Room:

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/sokolow-malopolski-1853/

This full-color map of the entire town shows the large market square
and concentrated residential area surrounded by fields of several
types and ownerships, plus two outlying hamlets, interlaced by roads
and small creeks. The town center also features a prominent synagogue,
two church/monastery complexes, a Catholic cemetery, and a lovely
depiction of the 17th century Jewish cemetery as public gardens.
Images for this map were provided to Gesher Galicia by the Archiwum
Panstwowe w Przemyslu and stitched by Jay Osborn.
