Address in RE: Manchester and Thank you for sites of UK Passenger Lists #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

In regard to the search for 15 Heywood Street in 1924, it helps to remember the
following when looking for such a street in Manchester, England, or any street for
that matter:

1. By aware of the historical setting you are researching and how that might
impact what you are looking for. In regard to Manchester, it survived the Blitz
(German bombing attacks) in WWII and many changes took place because of this.

2. Buildings and streets were destroyed and streets were renamed. In fact, whole
districts were changed forever.

3. Street Names change sometimes over the years not only because of war, but
other reasons as well. Heywood Street was also known as Harpenden Street. This
many be the reason why the particular address of 15 Heywood Street could not be
found.

4. There are City Directories for cities throughout the known world and Manchester
is no different with books ranging form 1772-1969. These can be accessed at the
Central Library: archiveslocalstudies@manchester.gov.uk. They are very helpful at
locating information and have helped me innumerable times with my research. Just
like libraries and librarians anywhere, you can count on them to provide
information >from their resources. You just have to ask.

5. There are listings or databases for streets in various places on the Internet.
I have created a database for particular major Manchester streets for certain years
that is available on the JCR-UK site on JewishGen. However, Heywood Street is only
mentioned as a cross street.

If you look at the streets, you will see that many streets had multi-use such as
factories, residences, stores, etc., and weren't merely residential streets.

In addition, you can post to the JCR-UK Digest on JewishGen and ask questions
related to your search. They have many experts who can help you.

6. When searching for an address, you can also look it up through your search
engine. It often will pop up with references to both the historical and present
address. Not all addresses can be found this way.

7. Different mapping sites such as Google can also be helpful at locating what you
are looking for.

It is important to utilize the resources of the Internet to locate what you want.

Gundelsheim in Wuerttemberg, about 30 km north of Heilbronn, does not have
a Jewish cemetery, but there is one in the village on the other side of the
Neckar in Hassmersheim. Anna ROSENTHAL might be burried there.

Julius Suessmann #germany

David Seldner
 

MODERATOR REMINDER: Enter two versions of important words
like family names and towns when there is an umlaut or ess-zet in the
word. Write one version like "SUSSMAN (U umlant)" and the second version
like SUESSMAN. That will let the name be found in the archives if another
researcher searches for either SUSSMAN or SUESSMAN.
Remember to look for both versions
of such words when searching any list arranged by alphabet. If the list is
from Germany, you should also search for the word spelled with the umlaut.
Sometimes these words are separated in lists arranged by alphabet. MOD 1

Dear Genners,

I am looking for information about the grandfather of a lady friend,
Julius SUSSMANN (u umlaut).

She is searching for information on her Grandfather Julius SUESSMANN (u
Umlaut), probably born on Jan 19, 1898. He and her Grandmother were not
married, so she has almost no information.

It seems he was the owner of some land in West Prussia and Posen
that was taken care of by a custodian.
She wrote to Yad Vashem and to Arolsen (10 years ago), but never received
an answer. Anybody out there able to help?

Thank you and best wishes

Segal=Levin? #lithuania

Tamar Dothan <dothan-t@...>
 

Hello,

The Keidan death records include my great great uncle, Beinesh Levin, son of
Peisakh. He died in 1882 aged 35. In the list of graves >from the Keidan
cemetery I found the grave of Binyamin Beinis Segal, son of Pesakh, who
died in 1882. I wonder if it could be the same man. What are the chances
that Segal [SEGAn Levi= vice Levi] would be used instead of Levin? Could it
be used because he was a young man, and his father may have still been
alive?

Thanks,
