INTRO - Seek LOBIE - Hamburg > Australia 1850s #germany

John and Daphne <hjlobie@...>
 

Hello Gersig,
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for 6 years.
I consider myself to be a novice in doing German Jewish Genealogy research.
I live in rural Queensland, Australia. My native language is English. I consider
myself intermediate in using a computer.

I have indentified the names and birth and death of all of my grandparents, most
of my great grandparents and some of my 2 great grandparents.
My primary research goals now are to find the birth of my Paternal Great
grandfather. The family names and towns I am researching are:

LOBIE -- Altona Hamburg Germany.
My great grandfather was William (wilhelm) LOBIE, Documentation states he
was born in Altona about 1835. He arrived in Melbourne Victoria Australia
apparently on his own aged 16 years in 1851. He spent 4 years in Victoria
and then 4 years in New South Wales before coming to Queensland where he
spent the rest of his life. He died in 1893 in Brisbane Queensland Australia.

In Australia the name has been spelt LOBIE, LOBEI and LOBEY on various documents.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: LINCOLN and Jewish Ancestry - Another Angle? - Malcolm Stern's Book First American Jewish Families: 600 Genealogies, 1654-1988 #general

Another possibility was mentioned in a recent message concerning Jewish
genes and Jewish ancestry appearing in a DNA forum. The author of the
message was referencing Stern's "First Jewish Families."

Lwow 1902 Directory Online #galicia

Rebecca Fenning <macguffin317@...>
 

Hi all,

Not only does the Digital Library of Wielkopolska include a digitized
version of the 1912 Galicia Telephone Directory, but it also includes a
plethora of other digitization projects -- such as the 1902 Lwow Directory,
which I found by searching around the catalog for items including the word
"Lwow." The catalog entry for the Lwow 1902 directory can be found at
<http://www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=2457&from=globalsearch&dirids=4>.
I can't give too many helpful hints, as I don't speak Polish or German,
the dual languages the directory is printed in. I've just been browsing by
page number - and can tell you that
* >from page 7 to 103 seems to be an alphabetical by last name directory
* >from page 103 to 151 is organized by type of business

I've already found entries for my KALISCH and ACHT families, and I hope that
others find some helpful information here as well.

1901 Przemysl business directory #galicia

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Several messages were recently posted by Alexander Sharon describing the
discovery of a 1912 Galician telephone directory on the website of the
Digital Library of Wielkopolska by GaliciaSIGger Grzegorz Gembala. Another
item in the Digital Library's collection that may be of interest to
GaliciaSIGgers is a 1901 business directory for Przemysl, located at:

http://www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=2447&dirids=4

I have not thoroughly examined this, but it seems to contain many clearly
Jewish names, and many references to other Galician towns. Perhaps, someone
with better knowledge of Polish can better describe its contents.

Best regards,
