Kaplan Family in Argentina #poland

Janis Schonholz <jschonholz@...>
 

Hello Fellow Sigger's,

I am trying to find my grandmother's brother, David Kaplan, who went
from Krynki, Poland/Russia which was near Bialystok to Argentina. I
think there were 11 siblings in his family. His sister Yente (Yetta
my grandmother) went to Havana Cuba and another sister Masza (who
visited him a number of times in Argentina) who also went to Cuba.
Both sisters and their families eventually settled in Brooklyn NY in
the 1940's.

I have 3 photos. One is of David Kaplan, the second is the family in
Krynki and the third is Masza in the middle and I think David Kaplan
to the right. If you contact me I can send photos to see if you
recognize anyone.

Thanking you in advance,

Janis

Re: Seeking Heinrich WALLACH who was born in Bad Suelze in Mecklenburg in December of 1857 #germany

Peter Lobbenberg
 

Ronny, I'm not sure you have been looking in the right place.

Heinrich turns up in Roermond, in the Netherlands, in a census there
https://tinyurl.com/y8vqw53a.
  A note against his name on the right of the page indicates that the family
left Roermond for Brussels in January 1894.  The date of the census is
unclear, but it appears to be between 1891 and 1894 (perhaps it was added
to >from time to time as a running record, rather than being on a fixed date).

On the same page is the LAMM family, including Marianne LAMM
(born 4 February 1868).

A search on
www.wiewaswie.nl
shows that a daughter Blanche WALLACH was born to Heinrich WALLACH and
Marianne LAMM in Roermond on 4 April 1891.
(Another site https://tinyurl.com/y8g7d4md gives a slightly earlier
birth date, 30 March 1891.)

According to https://tinyurl.com/y86f7bco, Heinrich and Marianne's
children were Ivan WALLACH born 1886 in St Petersburg, Russia (!),
Aline WALLACH aka Mina born 1889 in Belgium, and Blanche WALLACH
born 1891 in Roermond, see above. Although various dates etc on that
website are in my view unreliable, all three children
also feature on the Roermond census below Heinrich's name, see above.

If nothing else, the fact that their surname was WALLACH seems to suggest
that Heinrich and Marianne were married, although that isn't clear to me
beyond doubt. Happily Aline/Mina and Blanche both appear to have living
descendants, who hopefully, should be readily traceable.

The website also records, less happily, that Ivan is rumoured to have
run off, aged 18, with the family's life savings: perhaps to South
America, but anyway never to be heard of again. And it adds (but again
unreliably?) that Heinrich died in Cuba, of yellow fever, in 1891.

Whether or not the facts are accurate, the year of death looks inconsistent
with the Roermond census: even so, it is clearly one and the same Heinrich.
(The site manager also runs a family tree on ancestry.com, where Heinrich
is indexed under "Henri WALLACH".)

All the above suggests that Heinrich's documented 1890 voyage
to the USA may have been only a short one. There is also a record
of a Heinrich WALLACH >from Germany sailing >from Bremen to New York
eight years earlier, in 1882, on the SS Oder; and one >from Hamburg
in 1889 on the SS Augusta Victoria (the same ship as Heinrich's
1890 voyage). If those are the same Heinrich, it looks like he
may have been travelling on business rather than immigrating.
At all events he was evidently a much travelled man.

Good hunting!

SITE CITE - Re: name adoption list in Groningen [and Jewish Genealogy research in Holland] #germany

Gerhard Buck <gbuckidstein22@...>
 

Genealogical research in the Netherlands is easy, because it is well
organized. The first address is;
www.nljewgen.org the website of the Nederlandse Kring voor
Joodse Genealogie / Netherlands Society of Jewish Genealogy.
There you find information for all parts of the Netherlands.

Direct access to a person in all the archives of the country offers
https://www.wiewaswie.nl (who was who) with a version in English. If
you are lucky, the final stage of a long way is a digitized document.
This website is very useful for information about persons who fled
from Germany around 1940 and of whom you only know their names.
However, patience is required until one has understood, how the system
works. In the present case, the name Levie Jacob Meyer/Meijer has too
many spelling variations for rapid findings.

For research in Groningen I recommend the website of the city archive
www.groningerarchieven.nl or the e-mail address
