OPPENHEIMER family, Ventura, CA #general

Werner Hirsch
 

In trying to put together my family tree I have run into an apparent dead end.
A second cousin (once removed) of mine, Else OPPENHEIMER, left Germany in 1940
and eventually settled in Ventura, CA with her husband, Ernest.

I am trying to find out if they had any children, or other family and, if so,
where they might be. I would also like to know what Ernest's work was in Ventura.

Here is what I know abut them:

Else Fanny GAERTNER, b. 4 Jan.1900, Frankfurt a/M, Germany, immigrated to USA
from Liverpool 22 Mar. 1940 (Arrived New York City 1 Apr. 1940), d. 22 June 1982,
Ventura, CA

Ernst (Ernest) OPPENHEIMER, b. 23 Mar. 1890, Marsberg, Germany, d. 17 Sept. 1978,
Ventura, CA (Son of Siegmund OPPENHEIMER)

Both are buried in the Ivy Lawn Cemetery in Ventura. The Find-A-Grave and
JewishGen's websites both have a photo of Ernest's gravestone, but unfortunately,
not of Else's.

Thanks for any help that someone can give me, or pont me in the right direction.

Rabbi Yisroel Dovid of Nowy Targ #rabbinic

Gasimoda
 

Hello RavSigers,

According to the Nowy Targ Yiskor book was Rabbi Yisroel Dovid in Nowy Targ
a remarkable man and one of the greatest Talmud scholars of his day.

A note I found in an envelope among my late mother´s belongings says that he
passed away 1925 at the age of about 90 years

Does anybody have any information about his surname, relatives or family
tree?

Best regards

Ronald Reichwald
 

Hello Galicia

I recently joined the group and have received information >from GerSIG.

My ancestors came >from the Galicia area prior to moving to Germany.

My grandmother Chancia REICHWALD nee ROSENRAUCH was born in
Kolomyya (Slobodka Lesna) on 2nd February 1896 and died in London in
1971. I have located her grave.

Her husband, Nathan REICHWALD is said to have been born in Tarnow in
1890. I am having difficulty locating records of Nathan's birth although I
have located his grave in London (died 1988).

I am also having difficulty locating the birth or marriage records of my
great grandmother Chawa (Chawe or Eve or Eva) REICHWALD nee
(HIRSCH). I know that Chawa's husband, Jakob REICHWALD, was born
in Rzeszow in 1864.

I apologise if my format is incorrect.

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 642054.

The family names and ancestral towns that I have entered in the JGFF
(JewishGen Family Finder) are REICHWALD & ROSENRAUCH.

Thanking you,

Index to 1897 Russian Census Head of Households in Kyiv Guberniya Online #general

Gary Mokotoff
 

Professional genealogist Sarah Nadia Lipes has placed online an index to
heads of households in Kyiv guberniya found in the 1897 Russian Census. It
is located at http://jewua.info/jewish-genealogy-search-at-ukraine/ .
Information provided is surname; given name; patronymic; age; and fond,
document and page numbers. There are approximately 50,000 entries. The
search engine uses a "Starts with" algorithm. Searching for "Kagan" also
produces results for "Kaganovich."

Lipes stated that the project is a work-in-progress, and she expects "to add
many thousands of additional names in coming weeks and months." She
recommends researchers read the instructions page at
http://jewua.info/how-to-make-a-search/ before attempting a search. That
page has, for example, the transliteration scheme used to go >from the
Cyrillic to the Latin alphabet.

The project was funded by a grant provided by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., host
of the American genealogy show Finding Your Roots. Gates had a person of
Ukrainian ancestry on his show and provided documents to demonstrate the
person's ancestry. Lipes informed Gates that the research was faulty and
provided him with the correct documents. Gates was so impressed by Lipes
work, that he donated his honorarium for speaking at the recent IAJGS
Orlando conference to make it possible to place the Kyiv census records
online.

Thank you I have, and found a few. However, not for the periods before 1875.
I have records of Fanni Mitteiler in records of my fathers marriage and the birth
records of his brothers and sisters but not a birth or marriage record for Fanni
herself.

Thanks

A bit of background if I may. I am 62 and live in Vancouver, Canada. My late

My Mother never told us ANYTHING, not where she was from, that she had 3 brothers
and a sister, her parents names, nothing. Since starting my search about 9 months
ago, I have found family I did not even know existed in Argentina, Israel,
Hungary, Sweden, and Germany.

Her father was Simon Berger and his Mother was Fanni Mitteiler. Fanni was born in
Nagy Karoly, Carei, Carei, Satu Mare County, Romania.

A few days ago, I connected with a member of the Mittelier family who lives in
Sweden, Israel and Hungary. We are trying establish the exact connection. It's a
unique name, the only ones that show up in Geni are that of my new-found cousin
and myself I have the wedding record of my Grandfather where it lists
Fanni Mitteiler as his mother.

I think she died in 1875 so trying to find either birth records or marriage
records (She married Mayer Berger of Szamossalyi, Hungary

Your help is most appreciated.

Re: Birth Certificate Resources, Rokiskis, 1910 #general

Ann Rabinowitz
 

All existing vital records for Rokiskis have been obtained by the Rokiskis SIG
and entered into the Litvak SIG's All Lithuania Database (ALD).

There are no birth records in existence for the time period you are interested
in. This is not unusual for shtetls in Lithuania. For instance, Kupiskis, only
has birth records for certain birth records only after 1900 and no any before.

Perhaps you are looking for the incorrect year for your relative or have the
incorrect spelling of your relative's surname. In that case, a record might turn
up. An instance of this is my long time search for my uncle Max Hillman and his
family's birth records. This year, I finally found them all, but listed under
Illman, Ullman and Hillman in Linkuva, Lithuania and Bauska, Latvia.

In some cases, if your relative obtained an Internal Passport in Lithuania,
there might be a copy of the birth record in the file which is located in the
Archives. All existing Internal Passports that have been translated up to now
are to be found in the Litvak SIG Districts. I suggest looking through the
Internal Passport records and then if you find that your relative's name is
there, then order the file >from the Archives. Unfortunately, individuals did not
always obtain their Internal Passport in the town where they were born.

Good luck in your search.
