German SIG #Germany STERN Family from Nidda #germany

Linda Shefler
 

As a continuation to my previous post, here are more STERNS that lived in
Nidda. I am attempting to determine if they are part of my STERN family.
The given names are common in my family, but I am missing information to
connect the individuals. If anyone is familiar with any of these people,
or has any additional information on them, or suggestions where I can find
more information, please let me know.

Meyer/Max STERN (born 1875 Lorndorf) and his wife Clementine (Klemmy) nee
ZIMMERMANN (born 1881 Nidda).

Sara (nee STERN) STEIN (1880-1932) daughter of Naftali STERN.

Ida (nee STERN) and her husband, Saly NAUMANN.

Recha (nee STERN) (born 1905 Nidda) and her husband, Jakob STRAUSS (born
1905). Regina STERN (1835-1894) - no husband indicated.
The marriage of Lena STERN and Moritz BLUM in 1905.

As an interesting aside, there was a book and movie about one of my STERN
cousins >from Nidda, the Jewess and the Hauptmann (Captain). Ilse STEIN
was the daughter of Hilde (nee STERN) and Leopold STEIN. Here is the
Wikipedia link to the story:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Jewess_and_the_Captain

I have some lists of people >from Nidda and Geiss Nidda >from Prof. Stingl's
book, particularly lists of Jews living there during 1935/6. I am happy
to check the lists if your family was living there and share with you
whatever information is included. I'm not sure how complete they are, as
I was sent pages basically pertaining to my family, but I can certainly
check and let you know. As always, many thanks!

German SIG #Germany STERN From Bindsachsen and Nidda #germany

Linda Shefler
 

I am trying to straighten out a seriously confused STERN family! I
recently got information >from a book written by Prof. Wolfgang Stingl
called "Fragments of Jewish Life in Nidda". The book was incredibly
helpful in clarifying a lot of information for me, and helping me locate
several people who had been "lost'! But as is usually the case, with
answers comes more questions!
Juda STERN (born about 1813 in Zuntersbach) died in Bindsachsen about
1888. He was married to Johanna KAHN who also died about 1888. They had
a son Meir STERN (1851-1923) who also supposedly died in Bindsachsen.
Meir STERN was married to Jettchen STRAUSS (who died in 1883 in Nidda) and
then Sara EDELSTEIN (who died in 1934).
My questions: Is anyone familiar with this STERN family? I would love to
connect with anyone who is related to them. Where can I find BMD records
for Bindsachsen? Meir had a brother Jakob STERN, I don=B9t know if he also
lived in Bindsachsen and I don't know if there were other siblings.

Any connections or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hello!
If the records >from the Rabbinic school exist they should be in
Zhitomir oblast archive - as the seminary was in Zhytomyr, and the
Volyn gubernia records are in Zhitomir oblast archive now.
As I remember when I have been working in Zhitomir oblast archive
there were some records on the Jewish educational institutions in
Zhitomir but not many.
Regards,
Igor Holyboroda,
Lviv, Ukraine.

Greetings. I have just joined the SIG.
>from among a bunch of old letters in Russian that I have been reading that
my great-great-grandfather, Naftali Binder, attended the
government-sponsored rabbinical school in Russia, in Zhitomir, which was
open between 1845 and 1885, and which served as a teacher's college for 10
years as well. It was closed down in 1885.

Does anyone know if it is possible to find any records >from that
non-traditional (government-sponsored and initiated by maskilim) school
where he must have been in the 1860s?? I was thinking that the records may
have disappeared since it was only in existence for 40 years and closed down
almost 130 years ago.

Thanks,
David Goldman

Please - I need some help re Bloch family from Neuern (Nyrsko) #austria-czech

suegerber@...
 

Hi all - I have been working on a BLOCH family tree and am grateful for the help of some on the
geni.com website.

This resource did not exist when I first joined the austriaczech
listserv many years ago.

Jewish gen and the www.pamatnik-terezin.cz/ website have also been extremely helpful.

I would like to document as many Bloch relatives as possible,
especially those who suffered so much in the ghettos and camps.

Because of the brutality of the Nazis, I never knew any of my
grandparents, as well as many of my uncles
and aunts, so this is a familial labor of love for and to them.

Unfortunately, most of those in the family today know little about
those who are no longer with us.  
So -- I need a little help:

The Bloch family I am researching began in Neuern, Bohemia which is
now Nyrsko in the Plzen Region of the Czech Republic.Â

Those who left came mainly to Vienna.  I believe two came to NY and CT
(Robert and Marie).
Two immigrated to Montreal and Australia because of the war (Bruno
Weiss and Agathe - don't know her last name, but it was Hungarian). 
Maybe some stayed in Neuern?  Those probably were all killed, but
wouldn't it be wonderful to find a descendant of someone who survived?

My great grandparents were Julie (Julia) WEISZ BLOCH and Moses BLOCH.
I wonder what Moses did for a living? They had
about 10 kids, or more, so he must have made a decent living.

My grandparents were Anna BLOCH and Eduard BENEDIG. How they met I
don't know, but I believe they married in Neuern.
A nice lady on geni.com sent me their wedding record.

Eduard was Hungarian, >from Nyulfalu (I think that's the name of the
town) and I cannot find anyone else Jewish with that
name of his generation. He must have had a family -- but who were they
and what happened to them?  I think his father was Simon
Benedig,  That's what I think it says on the wedding record. (It is
difficult to read.)

So, anyone with a Bloch connection to Neuern -- can you help? I would
be very appreciative!

Best regards and thank you all for the years of
being connected to this online community
