Visiting Weimar and Thuringia- Advice and a local guide needed #germany

Michael Appel <mappel1961@...>
 

I will be visiting Weimar and Thuringia in August 2017 with my family
to visit and learn a bit more about that area--my father was born in
Weimar and fled in 1938, but most of his family remained and were
killed. His family goes back a number of generations in a number of
other towns in Thuringia.

None of us speak or read German very well, so we think having someone
guide us around makes sense. Do folks have recommendations of either
people to help us with such a trip or of places to look for such help?
I visited Weimar with my parents in 1977 (then East Germany) and my
memory >from that trip is that we went to a number of small Jewish
cemeteries scattered in smaller towns. I have a fairly good list of
locations and we hope for a guide who can help us visit them with some
efficiency. If there is also someone who can add to our knowledge of
Jewish family history in Thuringia, that would be wonderful.

Reply off list to <mappel1961@gmail.com> Thanks.

JewishGen Success! Stories - January edition #belarus

Phyllis Kramer
 

We bring you three success stories that are sure to inspire. These
accounts bring us to Australia, South Africa, Israel, Poland, Germany,
Scotland, Belarus, Czech Republic, Austria, France, and more. You can
access these stories >from the "About Us" button on our website or by
following this link: http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Testimonials/

Eli Rabinowitz was named after his great-uncle who had tragically died
in an accident when he was a young man. That was all Eli knew, until a
connection made through JewishGen's Family Finder and an old 1920
school photo >from Poland given to him by his aunt prompted his journey
to solve the mystery of Moshe Rabinowitz.

Martin Tompa and Siva German connected via JewishGen's AustriaCzech
SIG mailing list when they discovered they were both researching the
Schueck family. By working together, they uncovered their common
great-great-grandparents and found the birth records of their
great-grandparents.

from our Archives, we bring you, again, a very moving story by Michael
Tobias, with Meredith Hoffman, about the reunion of cousins Moniek
Garber of Glasgow, Scotland, and Moshe Porat-Perelman of Kfar Saba,
Israel, who had last seen one another in the early spring of 1940.
They were joyously reunited, thanks to JewishGen, sixty-seven years
later, in 2007.

This issue was prepared by JewishGen volunteers -- Nancy Siegel, Editor
and our new Success! Stories Webmaster, Colin Mathias Justin. We hope
that you, too, will have success in your research using the abundant
resources of JewishGen and we encourage you to submit your own success
stories to us at: success@lyris.jewishgen.org

ViewMate translation request - Polish #general

DorisRita <dorisrita@...>
 

Hello,
I've posted 2 vital records in Polish for which I need a translation.
They are on ViewMate at the following address

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM52950
and
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM52951

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

They are both death records for Hersch Schorr.

The first I believe is my great grandfather. it is the right town and name.
The second is for an infant, the son of my grandmother's brother and his
wife. The 2 month old child died to years after the first Hersch Schorr
died, which probably confirms that the old man was his grandfather for
whom he was named.
I would appreciate as much of a translation as possible.

Thank you very much.

What is the cemetery listed on my grandfather's death certificate? #general

teiferman@tmccleaning.net
 

My Grandfather, Isador Seidman, was killed by a taxi in 1923 in New
York City. His Death Certificate is on Viewmate at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM52893 .
I cannot make out the name of the cemetery they released him to in
Philadelphia. I have searched and searched and no variation on what
I can make out comes up. I am hoping for this lead because all other
sources of information about him go nowhere. Thank you so very much
for your help.
