TAUB from Wyszogrod, Poland #general

Marilyn Glass
 

Hi:

Relatives of mine were on the March of the Living and met a guide there who
was in touch with a man who was a TAUB >from Wyszogrod.

Please contact me if any of the following TAUBs appear on your family tree:
Ester Fayga (1824-), Majer (1824 - wife Hana Haberman), Mortka (1825-) and
Tobiaz Kofman (1825-). I would like to know if there is a possible connection
between the above names, and the TAUBS >from Wyszogrod who are on our family tree.

Thank you for reading the above and I look forward to your reply.

Best wishes,

Re: Hey-Resh-Resh on Gravestones [Thanks and summary of findings] #germany

Ralph Baer
 

I want to thank everyone again who sent me replies to my question about a
week ago as to what Hey-Resh-Resh on a gravestone signifies. As expected I
received a lot of different answers, It does appear that, depending upon
context, the person may or may not have been a Rabbi. If he was not a Rabbi
then it signifies that he was a respected, learned, and pious person as
Corinna Woehrl wrote in a post here.

One thing which I did not include in my original post is that some confusion
can result because the English word Rabbi is translated as Rabbiner in
German, while the Jewish word Rebbe is often written as Rabbi in German.

I may post a picture of the gravestone on ViewMate. If so, I will mention
that here too.

MOD NOTE: It is most likely Frankfurt a/M not Oder

Hello Robert,

Re: Need help locating a Birth certificate
I would like to have a copy of my fathers birth certificate and
German passport. Robert Eugen Nathan was born in Frankfurt on Dec 11, 1911.

address to Frankfurt Standesamt (civil records office):

mailto:verwaltung.amt34@stadt-frankfurt.de

Ask for a photocopy of the birth record.

I don't think that a passport will be kept in the archives. For further
information about your family address to the archives of Frankfurt city:

mailto:info.amt47@stadt-frankfurt.de

Best regards

Re: Why is Susskind a kinnui for Alexander #germany

Susskind is a kinnui for Alexander.

Actually, Susskind is found to be a kinnui for a number of names in
our traditional literature, such as: Shnei'or, Mordechai, Yekusiel,
Yerachmiel, Yisroel, Simcha. However, it probably is most common with
Aleksander, because of the common latter Hebrew consonants of 'snd'.

Re: Need help locating a Birth certificate #germany

Jan Bousse <janbousse@...>
 

I looked at the Antwerp immigration records, he is not listed. He must have
come to Antwerpen only to board the Red StarLine vessel Pennland. There
should be passenger records at the Ellis Island site. Robert writes that his
father was born in Frankfurt but does not say or does not know if it is
Frankfurt Main or Frankfurt Oder. The civil records at his exact birth place
should have his birth certificate.

I just looked at Ellis Island, his arrival is listed there. I could not view
the details, it's a long time since I used the site and the terms are
changed. Someone more knowlegeable should find more. I did my best.

Re: Need help locating a Birth certificate #germany

As your father was not born in Belgium, there possibly is a Belgian
police file on him. You could enquire at the Belgian National Archives
archives.generales@arch.be for this file.

This will not provide you with the birth Certificate or passport
that you seek, but will have interesting information in it.
The file on my father was indeed interesting.

Viewmate: Can you identify this town? #general

Laurie Sosna
 

Hello,

I located the Canada naturalization papers for an ancestor, Nussen
Goldblum, who immigrated to Montreal in 1906.

The handwritten document looks like he is >from Ostrofstz, Raowisli,
Russia. Nussen did not sign the forms, only made an X, so I believe
the clerk filled it out >from what Nussen said.

The previous information that I have is that the Goldblums are from
Poland. Given that the borders changed, by the time he filled out the
papers, it was Russia.

I tried to find the town using the JewishGen tool, but it doesn't seem
like the results are a close enough match. I don't have a lot of
experience with finding town names, I thought maybe some you might be
able to help.

Is Naftali often a Hebrew rendition to the Yiddish Hersh? #general

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

In Pinchas Hersh KANO'z grave, I found, when expecting Pinchas Tzvi,
Pinchas Naftali instead.

I wonder if rendering Naftali for Hersh is a common "mistake" (I
assume the correct is Tzvi) ?

Thanks in advance,
