Need help to find footprints... #lodz #poland

Shlomo Kronman <kronmans@...>
 

Dear Sir Madam,

I was wandering whether you could assist me with information regarding
the document link:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM38425

The doucument link contains a copy of a postcard despatched by my
great-uncle Wolf Kronman in 1942 >from the Polish town of Woclaveck to
his brother (Wolf lived in Zdunska Wola with all Kronman Family) ,
my grandfather, then living in Palestine. This postcard, the very last
sent by the above, was sent via the German Red Cross.

We have absolutely no information regarding the fate of Wolf Kronman,
nor any information as to circumstances which he encountered during
those years. I would be greatly indebted to you if you could provide
me with any bit of information (is there a copy of the original,
non-censured postcard somewhere?, were Jews allowed to send postcards
on a regular basis?' what happened to the Jews of Woclaveck/Leslau?)
which would perhaps allow me to construe some sort of picture of what
happened to Wolf Kronman.

Many many thanks for your assistance,

Sincerely,
Shlomo Kronman

Translation Request - Russian, FINKLESTEYN, FINKIELSTAJN #poland

Genealogy BLW
 

Marilyn Robinson found this Russian website and posted it to her blog.
http://kfinkelshteyn.narod.ru/Genealogy/gen_main1.htm It's a
long shot, but I wonder if this FINKLESTEYN family could be related to
my FINKIELSTAJN ancestors in Kielce District of Poland, the most recent
of whom is my great grandmother, Rywka Maria FINKIELSTAJN, abt. 1868 to
1928. Her parents were Abraham FINKIELSTAJN and Chaya Melnick.

The family tree is in Russian as are the supporting pages for each
member of the tree. I've used Google Translate, but it is
imperfect.

I would appreciate any genealogical information that might link the two
families.

Thank you,

Adoption records New York City #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

Is there any new information available that can help someone research their
adoption records?

This person was born in New York City in 1950. She located her birth mother
who gave no information regarding the father. This individual would like to
locate her father's family.

Or is this still something that cannot be accomplished?

Thank you in advance,

Jewish Transmigration Bureau - refunded money year before deportation #general

Debby Gincig Painter
 

Could someone possibly answer this for me. It is the first time I have come
across it in my genealogical searches.

Hani Johanna Schmetterling
from Yad Vashem: Details of transport: Transport 34 >from Wien,Vienna,Austria
to Theresienstadt,Ghetto,Czechoslovakia on 28/07/1942 Prisoner Nr. 693

But I have found 2 cards >from the Jewish Transmigration Bureau that indicate
her son (Joachim Schmetterling, NYC) sent money to her Vienna address on
March 17, 1941, October 29, 1941 but receives a refund check November 21, 1941
yet she was not deported until July, 1942,

So my questions: Were borders were already closed by November, 1941 so she
could not emmigrate or was the JTB not able to send money to Vienna after 1941.
Either way, where would she have been >from November, 1941 to her deportation
in July, 1942?

Thank you.

Switched At Birth in 1913-2014 DNA Tests Proves the Mix-up #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

This is an interesting genealogical story-evidently in 1913 two male
children were switched at the Bronx NY Fordham Hospital and this was only
found over 100 years later in 2014 >from DNA tests of their children who were
surprised being raised Irish that they were Ashkenazi Jewish and the one
raised Jewish DNA showed Irish ancestry - no Ashkenazi heritage.
