JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Cousins Search - WEIL #general

SANDI ROOT
 

Friends -

A search for a segment of our family history is becoming more active as floodgates
opened so I could continue to receive information on the circumstances of the post-
Normandy (June 21, 1944) battle death of my cousin, Pfc. Allan M. GOOD, of Chicago.
The gate opener in this case is JewishGenner, Francoise Kraftray, of France, who
nudged those gates open as far as she could, and I am so grateful. Now, I need to
find his grand niece and 2 nephews, who are the only ones I am aware of who are
closest in his line. I need to find them and tell them what wartime background I
found on Allan that the family, especially Allan's parents, most likely never knew,
because the material was classified. What was classified then, is unclassified
now, and I want to share the information with them, where it truly belongs.
Looking for: Adam, Eric, and Katelyn WEIL, descendants of Allan's sister,
Sylvia (GOOD) WEIL.

Thank you is not enough,

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen (Austria) Austria to Grant Citizenship to Descendants of Victims of Holocaust #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

As reported in several international newspapers, last week the Austrian
Parliament voted unanimously to give descendants of the Holocaust who fled
the country before 1955, eligibility for citizenship under the new law. The
amended change in the law is the date of 1955 rather than 1945, the year
World War ll ended. Previously only Holocaust survivors were eligible for
citizenship. The reason 1955 is important is because the definition of a
victim of Nazi persecution has been extended to include people who left the
country for up to ten years after the end of the Second World War. This
allows those interned in concentration camps who did not leave immediately
after the end of the war can now regain their nationality. The law becomes
effective September 1, 2020.

The bill was originally voted by a broad majority last May as previously
reported, but due to former Chancellor Kurtz's coalition collapsing earlier
this year its passage was prevented. As reported, children, grandchildren,
and great- grandchildren of those who fled may apply for citizenship.

The only people prevented >from Austrian citizenship are those convicted of a
violent crime or financial misdemeanors or those with "a negative attitude
towards Austrian democracy."

Descendants of nationals >from other countries of the now defunct
Austro-Hungarian Empire who lived in Austria are also eligible. Today that
is >from the Czech Republic to beyond Croatia in 1918.

The bill also makes an exception to strict rules about dual nationality,
granting passports without the need to reside in Austria or give up previous
nationality.

All parties agreed to the law.

I have no more information on this other than what was reported. Please do
not ask me for any for any further information. If you need more information
contact the Austrian General Counsel in your county.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Gittle (Abramowitz) -Russia-New Haven, Ct. 19th cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My great great grandmother Gittle Abramowitz came to New Haven from
Russia (or Palestine) during the during the third quarter of the 19th cent.

According to my mother's autobiography (which may not be exact)
Gittle came to the states as a widow with 4 young children during the
third quarter of the 19th cent.. She supposedly remarried either in
England or the states . She owned (with her husband?) a jewelry (or
related) store. At some point she sold the property to Yale Univ.

As to the family name of her second husband there are several
versions. One is that his name was Lazaroff and he was British.
Interestingly, there is a Lazaroff Jewelry store in New Haven but they
are not aware of the above story. Another possibility is that she was
married to a Friedman or Friedberg also probably an englishman.

Is there anyway to confirm any of the above details?

TIA and a Shana Tova to you.
Yoni Ben-Ari.

Symbol on Letter #germany

Ralph Baer
 

I have posted a letter in German written using the Hebrew alphabet on
viewmate.
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM75219

I am only interested in learning if there is a significance to the symbol
to the left of the signature of my great-great-grandmother Babette
(looks like Babed) Klein .

I have no need of a translation of the letter because I also have a
transcription in the German script of about 1900 by her youngest child,
my great-grandfather Nathan Baer, which I have no trouble reading.

As stated in the first sentence, Babette had just learned >from her family
that she had been promised in marriage to the recipient, my
great-great-grandfather Lazarus Baer. Nathan states with his transcription
that his parents had not yet met. The letter is not dated, but Nathan dates
it as 1821. They did not marry until 1832.

Thanks to anyone who can help.
