Former street name in Riga #latvia

Arlene Beare <arl@...>
 

I contacted the Archives for you and this was the reply.
Arlene Beare

The street name in Riga is Kr. Valdemara.
Nobody of the SALKIND family lived in that street before the War.

In Liepaja. Nikolai Street is now Republikas Street

From: "Prof Salkind" <malvin.salkind@btopenworld.com>
Does anyone know of a street in Riga or Liepaja named Nicolai Strasse.
It is where my grandfather Moshe SALKIND lived before he and my family

Danzigers buried in Mauritius #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

As has been discussed on this mailing list, many Danzigers trying to reach
Palestine were detained in Mauritius during 1940-1945. 127 of the
detainees, including Danzigers, never left the island and are buried in the
St. Martin Jewish Cemetery in Bambous. Henry Wellisch has transcribed data
about them >from the book "The Mauritian Shekel: The Story of the Jewish
Detainees in Mauritius, 1940-1945," by Genevieve Pitot (Port Louis,
Mauritius: Editions Vizavi, 1998), and this is now available online as part
of the JewishGen Online World Burial Registry (JOWBR) at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/. If you include "Town Is
Exactly Mauritius" in your JOWBR search, you will be searching this
information.

The surnames of the deceased identified as coming >from Danzig are:

FELD
FLATOW
FRIED
FRIEDMANN
HEYMANN
KOHN
KURNIK
LINDENBAUM
MICHELSON
REPINSKY
WARTSKI
WILDORF

It is possible that some identified only with "Germany" had Danzig
connections.

Please note that, in JOWBR, the field labelled "Place of Birth" should,
instead, be understood to be "Country of Origin."

For most of the deceased, the age at death, date of burial, and plot
location are also recorded.

Thanks very much to Henry for doing the data entry, to Owen Griffiths of
Mauritius for granting permission for us to place it online, and to Joyce
Field and Nolan Altman of JOWBR for incorporating the data into the
every-expanding database of Jewish burials (to which I expect the Danzig SIG
will contribute greatly, as we have access to information about thousands of
burials in Danzig, through our FHL and CAHJP projects, which you can read
about in the Projects section of our website).

Let us not forget the many wartime stories of flight and survival. If you
are related to one of the detainees >from Danzig, please contact me if you
would like to share his/her/your story on our website.

Best regards,

Dr Wolff from Breslau 1870's #germany

Geoff Kaiser <geoff.kaiser@...>
 

Dear Researchers,

I have some information that has indicated that a Dr WOLFF (given name
unknown) in my family tree was appraently the Physician to Auguste Viktoria
the wife of Kaiser Wilhelm II before she married him. This was presumably
in the 1870's.

Dr WOLFF had a sister Johanna and their parents may have been Isaac WOLFF
and Hanne NATHAN.

Does any one have any suggestions for how I could gain further information
that could support or otherwise this family anecdote. Also contact >from any
one that thinks they may have a connection to either this WOLFF or NATHAN
line would be appreciated. Many thanks

Russian speaking Prussian ancestors #poland

Steve Levy <jtlevy1@...>
 

I am presently trying to compile information on my grandparents JACOB LEVI
(1843-1898)and HANNAH LEVI(SHERESHEVSKY) (abt 1847-1934) who emigrated >from
Prussia to America in 1875. They had 3 children born in Prussia (Amelia b.
1864, Herman b.1868,and Fannie b.1869) and 3 children born in
America/Chicago (Mose 1875-1923, Mena 1876-1946, and Michael b. 1878). The
family initially settled in Chicago, but moved to St Paul/Minneapolis
between 1880-1890, where they lived for many years.

Although I am still searching for information on Jacobs's father, Hannah's
father was MOSES SHERESHEVSKY and her mother was Anna, both >from Prussia.

The early family members listed homes as Prussia, however they all spoke
Russian and after 1900 listed Russia rather than Prussia as their homeland
on census documents.

I am not sure if this narrows down their area of homeland or not-I would
appreciate any information on location of Russian speaking portion of
Prussia or any guidance on how to gather more data on earlier Levi or
Shereshevesky relatives in Prussia.

Also have been unable to find any immigration records for Chicago around
1875-are these available ??

Thanks in advance for any assistance
