Austrian emigration records to Palestine #austria-czech

pheilbrunn@...
 

Hi,

My great Aunt, Theresia FELDMANN born 13th December 1897 emigrated to
Palestine >from Vienna some time in the 1930's but probably before the
Anschluss. I am unable to trace her in Palestine/Israel as she married and I
don't know her married name. I know she lived in Haifa in 1960 and most
probably is buried there.

What I would like to know is are there any emigration records >from before
the Anschluss for Austrian Jews going to Palestine and if so where these
might be found.

Regards,

Peter Heilbrunn

Upcoming IAJGS conference advertising and accommodations #austria-czech

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

Time is running out if you wish to advertise for the conference. We
still have ad space in the Conference Syllabus, the Family Finder, The
Conference App, and the Conference Banquet Journal. Your ad must be in
to the Conference prior to June 15 in a pdf or other format that allows
us to publish it as is. All of the printed ads will be in black and
white, and online ads can be in color. We also still have the option to
put an insert into the Conference bag which will be given to all full
attendees of the Conference. Those will have to be printed and 1,000
copies must be delivered to the hotel to the attention of the Conference
not later than August 4. For more information on advertising and to
send in your reservation, see the Advertising tab on our website,
http://www.iajgs2016.org/how-to-advertise/

Conference Planning has entered the final stages. The Sheraton has
reported to us they are no longer able to accommodate base room
reservations for the entire week of the Conference. There are some
upgraded rooms available and some individual night rooms, as well.
There are few other rooms available in downtown Seattle. You need to
search for rooms if you have not made your room reservations for the
Conference. The University of Washington and Capitol Hill neighborhoods
offer quick access by the new light rail system to the Sheraton.
Pioneer Square is also a short distance >from downtown. The Westlake
Light Rail station is less than two blocks >from the Sheraton. There may
also be few rooms left at the Hyatt Olive 8 hotel, three blocks from
the Conference at
https://aws.passkey.com/event/15080205/owner/69782/home . They have been
gracious to offer a small block of rooms at a special rate for the
Conference. If you have already reserved rooms that you will not need,
we would appreciate it if you could release your unneeded room nights so
there is room for others.

We are looking forward to greeting you in Seattle. This will be one of
the better attended conferences in the past ten years. In addition to
the great programming lineup and entertainment, it is a great
opportunity to meet friends you may only know through online sources.
Seattle will be an exciting place to be >from August 7-12! See you then.

New York Jewish Genealogy Course begins June 27 #austria-czech

Phyllis Kramer
 

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City...they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx, Brooklyn
and surrounds.

Sure we have the census >from Ancestry and FamilySearch and vital
records >from ItalianGen, but this class will focus on the more
esoteric documents our ancestors generated ...naturalization, probate,
landsmanshaften, voters registration, newspapers, court cases. This
will be useful to those who want to find that missing branch, visit or
contact NY Archives. We will have suggestions on where to research,
where to wander and how to get there..and we'll schedule a field trip
to selected archives.

This is an intermediate/advanced level genealogy course with 8 text
lessons you can download; there are no specific times for the course
as students are international. We feature a unique personal mentoring
program where students select a branch to research and work one-on-one
with the instructor. Students should have 8-10 hours per week to read
the lessons, search online and interact with the instructor.

The tuition is $125. Registration is open. Enrollment is limited.
Please...review the details under the New York course description at
www.jewishgen.org/education; and enroll on the same page.

I would like to know if the father of Leo Kamieniecki born in Brest Litovsk

WEISSBERG / ALEKSANDROWICZ families #general

Palekaiko
 

I've hit the wall. If there is anyone out there who has any
suggestion or information about my research, please contact me,
Michael Diamant, palekaiko@gmail.com.

What follows is a synopsis of my research on the ALEKSANDROWICZ family.

Meir (Max) WEISSBERG, b1856 in Bukaczowce, Galicia was my great great
uncle. His brother Selig Weissberg was the father of my father's
mother, Regina Weissberg.

Meir lived his most of his adult life in Stanislawow, Poland (now
Ivano-Frankivsk, Urkaine). He and Chane GOLD had four children, Jozef
Karol, Frydryka, Klara and Wilhelm, all born in Stanislawow.

Jozef, b 1887, moved to L'viv, wrote under the name Jozef
BIALOGORKSKI, lived at Bema Street 12, while working as a clerk in the
taxation office.

Wilhem, b 1897 probably died in infancy.

Klara, b 1893 married Adolph LAX (LACHS) >from Rzeszow, Poland). No
children and they died in the Holocaust.

Frydryka, b1892 married Alexander Aleksandrowicz (a banker), in 1916
in Stanislawow. They had three children, Lidja (b 1915), Irena (b
1917) and Norbert Gustav (b 1917). All three children were born in
Vienna. Irena and Norbert were twins. Following their birth, the
family lived in Alexander's home town, Lipnik, Bielsko-Biala,
Poland.

And this is where the trail ends.

Thanks to anyone who can help me.
