News about Jenny FRANKENTHALER LEVI #germany

Liz Hanellin
 

Dear Fellow GerSIGers,

I would like to share with you the recent very meaningful information that
ITS sent me today regarding my great-aunt Jenny LEVI nee FRANKENTHALER and
her family.

As I've written to the list before, I have, for some time now, been
trying to learn the fate of Jenny, her husband Ludwig, and their daughter.
On my own, and with the help of several people on this list, I was able to
learn that Jenny and Ludwig moved >from the Wurzburg area to Frankfurt in
1939; however, without a marriage date I was never able to confirm any
additional information about Ludwig and I only had anecdotal information
(>from my family) that they had a daughter.

ITS was able to provide me with a birthdate for Ludwig and, unfortunately,
also to confirm that he was killed in Majdanek on September 25, 1942. He
was born in Mannheim, on April 10, 1909 (making him 11 years younger than
Jenny!).

In addition, ITS was able to find the birthdate and name of Jenny and
Ludwig's daughter, Judis Hadasse (b. June 2, 1941). This is amazing
information for me to be able to put a name to that little person who
was born into such turmoil! >from the records, it seems that she was
born at Saalburgstrasse 5, in Frankfurt, and a midwife (Hebamme) named Th.
(Therese?) Wiegand was attending.

Another record ITS sent me stated that, in Frankfurt, Ludwig forcibly
worked with "Jakob Astheimer," gardening, so I suspect that this may
have been his trade.

Unfortunately, ITS was not able to tell me the fate of Jenny or Judis,
so the search for her continues....

If any of the information above sparks new thoughts or ideas, please
do not hesitate to be in touch! I would be happy to learn more about
Ludwig's side of the family as well, if there are any Mannheim LEVIs
or LEVYs out there.

Best, Liz Hanellin NYC

Need help with translation of strange word #germany

Eva <evaeisenstein@...>
 

Dear GERSIGers:

I am in the middle of translating my father's letters in German to the
woman who would become his wife, and my mother. Very colloquial letters.
This is 1935. He writes of going to three regular events on weekday
evenings: Chug, Beth, and Snif. All three words are mentioned in many
letters. It is the last word that has eluded my translation efforts. I
would appreciate any help with this strange word, or abbreviation, or
whatever it may be.

Thankyou, Eva Eisenstein, evaeisenstein@comcast.net Evanston, IL

Bessarabia / Moldova Cemetery projects #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear researchers,

I would like to let you know what is going on with our multiple (24!)
Cemetery projects:

- Rybnitsa New Jewish Cemetery - completed - you can read about it at the
Bessarabia SIG website / Jewish Cemeteries section

- Tiraspol Dalnee Cemetery - completed, see information at Bessarabia SIG
website / Jewish Cemeteries section

- Brichani Jewish Cemetery. Finally we have a very good Hebrew translator,
who knows well the tombstone writings, and will finish first reading in
November, 15, and in parallel a second reading is checking his work.
Hopefully the project will be done by the end of the year.

-Lipkani Jewish Cemetery. As Bricheni inscriptions, it is very hard to
translate the writings. Person who is going to finish Brichani will work
after that on this project.

- Chinisheutsy, very small Jewish Cemetery, will be ready in September, 2015

- Skuleni, there is a large monument built not long time ago for the father
of Skulyaner Rebbe who was buried at that cemetery, and also several other
family members. Also a number of fragments of monuments were built in
foundation of the large monument. Will be submitted to JOWBR in the fall of
2015

- Rybnitsa Old Jewish Cemetery, half of the photos are received (about 460).
Need someone to translate or better to take the whole project (2 readings,
prepare for JOWBR).

- Soroki Jewish Cemetery, New Section, hopefully finish this project in
September, 2015

- Soroki Jewish Cemetery, Old Section. Photos are done, and it will be
worked after the Soroki New Cemetery is completed.

- Kishinev Jewish Cemetery, project started, more photos will come in late
fall, probably all photos will be done in the spring of 2016

-Leovo Jewish Cemetery. Half of the photos are done. The rest be done in
late fall. A person organizes a group of people to do translation.

- Camenca (Kamenca) - the photos are done, and the first reading is done.
Need someone with good Russian and Hebrew to check every record.

- Dubossary Jewish Cemetery, Old Section - there are only about 30 photos...
cannot get the rest done yet.

- Rashkov Jewish Cemetery (Transnistria) - small part of the cemetery
photographed. We need some money to do the whole cemetery. If anyone is
interested, please email me.

- Rezina New Jewish Cemetery - first reading is done. Need someone to do
the "second" reading.

- Rezina Old Jewish Cemetery - in a process of translation.

- Ungheni Jewish Cemetery. The photos were received, and now waiting for
someone index them.

- Grigoriopol Jewish Cemetery. In process of translation.

- Izmail Jewish Cemetery. Second reading is in progress, hopefully complete
this in a months.

-Bessarabeska Jewish Cemetery. Photos will be in taken in September.

- Markuleshti Jewish Cemetery. Photos should be taken this fall...

- Faleshti Jewish Cemetery. Photos should be taken this fall.

- Hincheshti (Gancheshti) Jewish Cemetery. Photograph will be in taken this
fall.

- Ataki Jewish Cemetery. Photographer will go this fall to photograph the
tombstones.

I want to thank all people who are translating the inscriptions of the
tombstones. This is our duty to do these projects as best as we can and
also as quick as we can... the cemeteries are disappearing.

Also many thanks to an army of JewishGenners who are responding on my
requests at ViewMate! You are terrific. All of you who helped to decipher
these writings are included into the Cemetery Reports - you can see many of
them at the Bessarabia SIG Website. I will continue to add inscriptions to
ViewMate.

If you know Russian and Hebrew or even one of the languages and would like
to participate in one of these projects please let me know.

Also, if anyone wants the whole set of records for a cemetery, that can be
arranged for a donation of $100 to Bessarabia-Moldova Cemetery project.

Finally, if you know of a cemetery and it is not yet on our list yet, and
you know that the cemetery exists, we would need about 30% of total cost
collected before starting the project. Of course the cost depends on the
number of tombstones, distance, etc. This way were organized many of the
cemetery projects above!! Let me know if interested.

News about Jenny FRANKENTHALER Levi #general

Liz Hanellin
 

Dear Jewish Genners,

It's been a while since I posted about this, but I would like to
share with you the recent very meaningful information that ITS
sent me today regarding my great-aunt Jenny Levi nee FRANKENTHALER
and her family, >from Germany.

For some time now, I have been trying to learn the fate of Jenny,
her husband Ludwig, and their daughter. On my own, and with the
help of several Jewish Genners, I was able to learn that Jenny and
Ludwig moved >from the Wurzburg area to Frankfurt in 1939; however,
without a marriage date I was never able to confirm any additional
information about Ludwig and I only had anecdotal information (>from
my family) that they had a daughter.

ITS was able to provide me with a birthdate for Ludwig and,
unfortunately, also to confirm that he was killed in Majdanek on
September 25, 1942. He was born in Mannheim, on April 10, 1909
(making him 11 years younger than Jenny!).

In addition, ITS was able to find the birthdate and name of Jenny
and Ludwig's daughter, Judis Hadasse (b. June 2, 1941). This is
amazing information for me -- to be able to put a name to that
little person who was born into such turmoil! >from the records,
it seems that she was born at Saalburgstrasse 5, in Frankfurt,
and a midwife (Hebamme) named Th.(Therese?) Wiegand was attending.
On Judis' birth record, her father is listed as Gartner Ludwig
Levi, and another record ITS sent me stated that, in Frankfurt,
Ludwig forcibly worked with "Jakob Astheimer," gardening, so I
suspect that this may have been his trade.

Unfortunately, ITS was not able to tell me the fate of Jenny or
Judis, so the search continues....

If any of the information above sparks new thoughts or ideas,
please do not hesitate to be in touch! I would be happy to learn
more about Ludwig's side of the family as well, if there are any
Mannheim Levis or Levys out there.

Apologies to those of you who will read this both here and on the
German SIG, but I thought it was worth sharing with everyone!

Best,

Re: GALLER surname originally from Pomerania area in Poland #general

Roger Lustig
 

Dear Angie:
Help us help you! How did you discover that your family was Jewish? What
points toward Pomerania?

Menk's _Dictionary of German Jewish Surnames_ doesn't include GALLER,
nor have I encountered the surname, nor is it on the Pomeranian or other
Prussian surname-adoption lists. (GELLER is very rare too among German
Jews.)

But JRI-Poland shows that there were GALLERs in Galicia, and a few in
Congress Poland as well.
