Baruch Menchel Stern of Lima, Peru #latinamerica

meretz
 

I search for information on my late uncle Baruch Menchel/Menczel Stern.
Baruch Menchel Stern was born 1906 in Uscie Biskupie, Galicia, then under
Austrian rule, later Poland and now Ukraine. My father Jacob Menchel Stern,
1908-1938, was his younger brother.
Baruch Menchel Stern immigrated to Palestine during the 1920s, moved after a
few years to the US and later went to live in Latin America. My father died
very young and many members of our family died in Poland during the
Holocaust. Contact with Baruch Menchel was lost completely. Just recently
was I lucky to find in Jewishgen a website with an index of the Jewish
cemetery in Lima, including photos of many gravestones. Among them I found,
to my great surprise, the grave of Baruch Menchel Stern, 1906-1970. I am
positive that this is the grave of my father's lost brother. I am very much
interested to find more details of my late uncle's life and family and
certainly getting in touch with his wife, if she is still alive as well as
with possible descendants. I will be most grateful for any information or
assistance to further my research. I have already tried to contact several
Jewish institutions in Lima, but these have not been responsive.
Thanking you in advance for any help,
Nurith Meretz, Israel

Conference Recording Announcement #latinamerica

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

We've arranged with the well-regarded, experienced digital media company
Conference Resource LLC to record at least 121 conference sessions and sell
those recordings during and after the conference. The recordings will be in
the versatile MP3 format (that runs on PCs, Macs, and any MP3 audio device
with a USB port). They will be issued in a plastic case with a custom
printed label. There are two ways to purchase the sessions that have been
approved for recording:

- Individual Sessions: in CD format at $9.95 each if purchased during
the conference, or $11.95 plus shipping and handling (S&H) after the
conference

- Full Set of Sessions: in Flash Drive format at $134 each if purchased
prior to the conference, $149 at the conference, or the same price plus S&H
after the conference.

Why buy such recordings? By having them, you can benefit even more >from the
conference and advance your family history research, as follows:

If you're attending the full conference – you can take part in other
conference events and still have access to sessions that occurred on the
day(s) or hours that you did other things (such as researching your roots at
the Resource Center, attending SIG or BOF meetings, networking, visiting
vendors, or enjoying film screenings and discussions with directors of
award-winning films). What a great way to flexibly plan your conference
week!

If you're attending part of the conference -- you can purchase individual
sessions that matter to you and were held on the day(s) you couldn't attend,
and listen to them at your own convenience.

If you weren't able to attend any part of the conference -- you can purchase
and listen at your own convenience to the session(s) that matter most to
you, or to the entire set of recorded conference sessions.

And all these options share three other key benefits --
1. You'll have ALL the spoken text of the speaker(s) at the sessions you've
chosen to purchase. That way, if you attended a session that was recorded,
and the notes you took during the session weren't clear or if you missed
something -- you can just listen to the session again, and verify or fill-in
those facts!

2. Another plus is that you'll also be able to listen to a session and a
given speaker more than once, if a concept you've heard isn't somehow clear
but is very important to you.

3. You'll also have these sessions and/or the full set of recorded sessions
as a reference tool in advancing your research, whenever it becomes helpful
to do so.

This conference's organizers didn't create the concept of selling recorded
sessions -- this has been a favorite purchase of conference attendees for
quite a few years, it's considered so valuable!

Contact conference Resource LLC at www.myconferenceresource.com, or look for
their sales table at the conference.

Remember - Online registration ends on July 31. Last chance to sign up for
all meal events and Embassy visits!

Save $$$ over on-site registration.

Need help translating from Russian #romania

epk13@...
 

I've posted a photo postcard, front and back, in Russian for which
I need a full translation, for both the message on the back of the
card dated November 14, 1925, and the woman sender's last name. The
woman holding a bouquet notes that she is living in "Romania,
Bassarabia, Orhei," and is sending this card to her brother and
sister-in-law. Clearly it was enclosed in a letter. I am particularly
interested in this woman's last name, which I cannot make out, and
another part of the message that is not clear to me. Without her last
name, I cannot figure out who's sister she was. Feel free to add any
additional comments on her dress or the photo or her writing style.

The translation I have thus far reads:

"To remember me by to my dear brother and sister-in-law.
from your [?] sister and sister-in-law
Rahil [last name]"

On Ancestry: Index of Jews Whose German Nationality was Annulled by Nazi Regime #germany

I just spotted a new collection on Ancestry.com:

Index of Jews Whose German Nationality was Annulled by Nazi Regime, 1935-1944

This database was created >from microfilmed German records held by the
U.S. National Archives. For more information about the records and to
search them, go to

http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=2027

Non-subscribers can search the index and view digital results (name,
date and place of birth, last residence) but they cannot view the
original cards, which include exact addresses, dates naturalization
was annulled, and maiden names.

Handwriting and town identification #general

Israel P
 

On the passenger list which appears at
http://www.pikholz.org/Pioneers/RosaNoordam.html on line 21, we find Rosa
PICKHOLZ.

At the far right (circled) is a town of birth that looks like Szendziezow. I
cannot find such a town anywhere. I have looked at a very detailed map of
the Tarnopol area, where I believe she was born, but don't see anything
similar.

I'd also like to hear some learned opinions on her mother's name. If Rosa is
who I think she is, her mother is Blime. But the name looks more like Sure.
(Blime indeed had a sister Sure who also lived in Vienna, but Sure had no
daughter named Rosa.)

(I have also not suceeded in showing how Rosa and Bertha on line 20 are
cousins, but that is probably not important.)

Thank you.

How can one simply get a list of ships arriving on a certain date in NYC?
There are Ship Lists on the Steve Morse Site for both Ellis Island and
Castle Garden, that allows you to input a date, and get a list of ships and this
is probably the best bet if you are just looking for arrivals in New York as
was mentioned in this post

However, you can also search the New York Tribune for free for that time
period at the Library of Congress.

http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/

Choose Advanced Search, then select New York Tribune >from the list of papers.
You can then enter a date range. Then use the search phrase: Steamers. The
section you are looking for in the 1890s was called Marine Intelligence and
listed Incoming and Outgoing Steamers for that day. I searched on the above
date you gave and Steamers, and the list was on page 10. However there are
ships that are listed on the Steve Morse site that aren't listed here. Good Luck.

Shalom Shalom,
