Re: Researching Berlin editor Alfred BRIE (1870-1942) #germany

Raphael,

You might want to try the Internationales Zeitungsmuseum at
http://www.izmarchiv.de/

About 5 or 6 years ago I inquired with them (at the time it was a lady
- Meike Komatowsky, email M.Komatowsky@...) about a relative
who had been the founder and editor-in-chief of a newspaper in Aachen.
I hadn't expected much but they were able to send me information, much
to my surprise.

I did a quick search of their online archive just now, and they do
have issues of the Lustige Bl=C3=A4tter. So maybe they also have
information on Alfred BRIE. good luck. Best regards,

without success. I would be grateful if anyone could advise me as to

searching for Johann Niklaus BLUHM and Dorothea Sophie NEUHAUS #germany

Laura Nielsen <yayitacolombiana@...>
 

Hello GerSig, I just joined the group. I am originally >from Colombia,
but currently reside in the United States, and I speak English and
Spanish.
I am searching for the actual city of origin for my ancestor: Jorge
Guillermo BLUHM. Catholic Church records in Colombia and Venezuela
list him as a German Jew, but a city is never mentioned. His marriage
record lists his parents as Johann Niklaus BLUHM and Dorothea Sophie
NEUHAUS. Jorge Guillermo was born around 1820, and died in Colombia
around 1900. I had not been aware of my ancestor's heritage until
recently, when looking at his marriage record, which details his oath
to allow his wife to raise their children in the Catholic religion.
Consequently, I found government records on google books that detail
his citizenship and status in Colombia as a foreigner.
Thank you for any help you may be able to provide. I have searched the
databases both within Jewishgen.org, ancestry.com and
familysearch.com, without results.

Galician Dental Schools? #galicia

... My great-grandmother's brother was a dentist in Stanislawow.
Where would he probably have gone to school?
Two Galicia based Universities: Jagiellonian University in Krakow and
Jan Kazimierz University in Lwow have been educating future dental
specialists through their medical schools.

In addition, Warsaw based Government Institute of Dentistry, later
re-named as Stomatology Academy trained mostly Polish dentists. Not
all Jewish students have been accepted to study dentistry and
stomatology in Poland since during interwar period Jews were subject
to "numerus clausus" racist restrictions. Hence many Jewish students
were studying abroad.

BTW, on Logan's Genealogy Indexer

http://genealogyindexer.org/directories

There are several Polish interwar medical, incl. dentist databases. I
believe their respective Alma Maters are also listed.

For example:

Poland 1931 Medical Book (Polish Physicians, Dentist and Pharmacists)

Viewmate translation request - Russian - KOLPENITZKY #general

Dear All,

I've posted an 1816 document in Russian >from Stolovichi, Novogrudok uyezd,
Minsk gubernia, Russia.

https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM66136

It was supposedly signed by my 5x great-grandfather, Movsha son of Leib
KOLPENITZKY who was a kagalny or leader of the Stolovichi Jewish community.
It was sent to a new-found cousin of mine by a Russian researcher back in 2009.
My cousin and I would very much like to know what the document says and which
signature is that of our ancestor's.

Hopefully yours,

Need help with unreadable Israeli Gedcom #general

Dear Genners, I'm helping a friend who has a technical issue. He has recently
made contact with a new Israeli cousin. That's the good news. The bad news is
that the Israeli cousin sent a Gedcom that isn't readable on my friend's
Legacy software program.

The English comes out just fine, but the Hebrew comes out in gibberish code.
Can anyone offer advice about how to make the Gedcom Hebrew read in Hebrew
(and not gibberish) or some other solution.

And no, my friend doesn't know what genealogy program his Israeli cousin is
using.

Thank you in advance
