JewishGen Education Courses in March #ciechanow #poland

Phyllis Kramer
 

We are offering two courses in March...

First Basic I - Search Strategies. If you want to use the Internet for

accompanied by a workbook of daily lessons with skill building
exercises. Tuition for this class is $18. The fee will be waived if

donation to the JewishGen General Fund within the past 12 months.
Registration is open and will be limited to 50 students.

Second - Complex Genealogy in the U.S.
Looking for someone in the U.S.? If despite basic online research you
have not yet found the Hebrew names, birth year or town for your U.S.

Students are encouraged to post one ancestral branch and the
instructor will respond with answers to questions and suggestions on

valuable. Tuition is $125. Registration is open.

GOLDSTEIN from Przasnysz - ViewMate in Russian #general

Marty Meyers <martymeyers@...>
 

I would appreciate help translating the following 3 images >from Russian.
Both in involve marriages of an Jellia Szaia GOLDSTEIN.

In 1907, a Jellia Szaja married my great-grandmother's youngest sister
Golda ZYLBERMAN. They had a daughter Ryfka in 1910.
In 1911, a Jellia Szaja married Dwora Rogal.
Lastly, in 1908, an Ellia Szia was born.

I am trying to untangle the story of my great-grandmother's sister,
who I am told died in the Shoa, and would like to know how the
GOLDSTEIN family is related and how many different Jellia Szaja there
were in Przasnysz. Was there a divorce and Jellia Szaja GOLDSTEIN
re-married or were there multiple people with that name in Przasnysz?

The viewmate links are

I would like a translation of all names, ages, parents as well as any
indication of prior divorce or widower-hood.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Answer : Fast deteriorating memorial to Holocaust Victim, Weissensee Cemetery, Berlin #germany

Yvonne Stern
 

Jewish congregations maintain their own cemeteries, including the graves.
You should report the bad condition of Jenny LEVY's memorial to the
Juedische Gemeinde Berlin, at Oranienburger Str.

I am not aware that he and Jenny had children. A few months ago a

the following inscription: "Dem Andenken unserer geliebten Mutter

8.12.1944". Perhaps Jenny had children >from her first marriage, when
she was called Jenny PINKUS.
I contacted the office at Weissensee about this, they were only able
to tell me that this headstone was laid in 1947.
The inscription on the headstone is disappearing fast. I would like to
contact the descendants of Jenny Levy to see if, at some point in the
future, we might arrange to share the costs of maintaining this
memorial to a Holocaust victim.
If anyone is able help me, I would love to hear >from you.

[Need help finding] German immigrants in Brazil #germany

Amy B Cohen
 

I am hoping someone can help me locate a cousin who immigrated to Brazil
from Germany in the 1930s. She was born on February 27, 1889, as
Johanna HEYMANN, in Geldern, daughter of Willy HEYMANN and Rosalie
SCHOENTHAL. She was married to Hermann MOSBACH, who was from
Hohenlimburg and who died in 1931 in Ratingen, Germany, where the
family was living.

I have located immigration cards for Johanna dated 1939 in the FamilySearch
database of Brazilian immigration cards, one listing her as Joana MOSBACH
ROTHSCHILD, so she seems to have remarried at some point.

There was also an Else MOSBACH living in Ratingen who also immigrated
to Brazil in the 1930s. She appears to have been a daughter of
Hermann MOSBACH and his first wife. I cannot find her at all on
any database except for this website about the Jewish community of Ratingen:

http://www.archive.nrw.de/kommunalarchive/kommunalarchive_q-t/r/Ratingen/StadtgeschichtlicheInformationen/JuedischeEinwohner/

Shortened URL - http://goo.gl/kLPdXk

But I cannot find any resource to learn what happened to Johanna after
sheimmigrated (or Else). I know that she was still alive and living
in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 1966 because she is listed as a survivor
in her brother Lionel's obituary (he lived in the US).

Does anyone know if there are any sources or records available
>from Brazil that might help me learn what happened to Johanna and to Else?

Thank you, Amy Cohen, East Longmeadow, MA, USA amybesscohen@gmail.com
