Search - Friedland (duchee of Posen) #general

Marya <mlesouef@...>
 

My English is bad but I hope to be understood.

My ancestor Maurice Silberstein married in Lille (France) in 1840 said that he
was born in 1795 in Friedland (duchee of Posen). His parents were Jacob
Silberstein and Rose Siskind. I am searching (desesperatly) what is the name of
this town now.
Perhaps somebody can help me.
Thank you.

Re: Jewish birth, marriage and death records recorded in church archives #germany

Hess, Jonathan M <JMHESS@...>
 

Particularly in small towns in Germany it was not unheard of for Jewish
birth records to be housed in the local church. Through Ancestry,
I've found similar records for my ancestors and family members
in Gundelsheim (Wuerttemberg), which Ancestry mistakenly wants
to integrate into my family tree as baptisms.

Hope this helps.

Re: [Possibly Jewish records found in] Baden Lutheran Kirchenbuecher? #germany

Do not be alarmed by the church book reference. You can go directly
to the Baden-Wuerttenberg archives at the following site:

http://www.landesarchiv-bw.de/web/47245

This site is organized by regions and cities, and the books/volumes
are a compilation of Katholisches (Catholic), Evangelische (Luthern),
Reformierte (Reformed/Calvinist), and ISRAELITEN (JEWISH) records
organized by year.

It takes a bit of digging, but you may find the information for which
you are looking under the Israeliten sections.

I have had good luck with these records getting back to the early 1800's.

My results have been disappointing in terms of finding new relatives to
connect to my family tree. Some people have had much better results. I
would say that one gets the biggest bang for the buck in DNA testing by
having more known relatives tested and by doing conventional research
before DNA research....

Jewish Film Festival Documentary: "Raise the Roof" #general

Joan Parker
 

Hello Genners,

"Raise the Roof" is on Public Television. Not just in Miami.

Miami's public channels (PBS and LRN) have been showing on different
weeks the documentary "Raise the Roof". The film follows a ten-year
project to rebuild an iconic wooden synagogue in Poland. The result
stands as the centerpiece in the POLIN museum

Check your local public channels for the next showing.

See you in Warsaw.

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
