Latvia 1897 census #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

I am glad to see that, in her message about the 1897 Latvia Census,
this time Arlene Beare did mention that there are family names
but not the names of children.

In an earlier post about the census, she did not mention that,
and a researcher could actually have been misled.

Let's hope that any confusion that may have been caused by that
earlier post has now been cleared up.

The Jewish cemetery in Viseu de Sus, Romania has a metal tag on every

trip to Romania #romania

imichaelgnyc@...
 

Hi,
My wife and I are planning to visit Romania this Summer. We plan to spend 10-12
days in Romania.

The trip is three-fold:
1) visit the Romanian tourist sites;
2) do some moderate walking in the rural areas, and
3) visit the towns/cities of my ancestors .

My ancestors were all Romanian. All grandparents came to America around the
turn of the 19/20th century.
They came >from Isai, Bacao, Buhusi and Galati.

I would like some assistance in planning my trip: for example: the name of a
tour company and/or guide that is experienced with Romanian sites AND Jewish
sites; a suggested itinerary, opinions regarding a private tour guide v. a tour
van/bus, B/B, boutique hotels, rural accommodations; special towns to see,
separate guides for different regions of the Country or one guide for the entire
trip, etc.

Please contact me by e-mail.
Thanks for the help.

1914 Warsaw Telephone Directory #general

Peter Lebensold
 

Cousins:

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before, but I recently stumbled
upon a resource I had not earlier known about: A Warsaw telephone
directory >from 1914 - far earlier than anything on Logan Kleinwacks'
excellent Genealogy Indexer website (despite its wide range of
searchable directories - at http://genealogyindexer.org/ [1] ).

The reference appears on the website of Israeli genealogical researcher
Yoram Mayorek - who has somehow obtained a physical copy of this early
"database". Here's his mention of it:
http://www.research.co.il/1914.html [2] . The directory, according to
Yoram, includes about 25,000 entries - about 65%-70% of them apparently
Jewish.

While the directory is not viewable online - and has not been OCR'd - on
his website Yoram is offering to check names for anyone who asks. He
sent me a scan of the names I'd told him I was interested in, and the
listings include not only the name (often including full first name),
phone number and address, but also a description of the business at that
number.

Happy hunting!

(European Union) Plans to File Against Google on Anti-trust Violations and Could Fine Google as Much as $6 Billion USD #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

As reported earlier on this discussion list, the European Union (EU) has
been "fighting" Google on a number of fronts-including the "right to be
forgotten", the "right to be erased" requiring them to remove links upon
request if the person finds them "harmful" even if true-in some
circumstances and potential antitrust issues. As reported by the Wall
Street Journal on April 14, 2015, the European Union antitrust regulator
has decided to file formal charges against Google for violating the EU's
antitrust laws. EU Antitrust chief Margrethe Vestager will report to the
other EU Commissioners on April 15.Google has a majority of the search
engine share in the EU-ranging >from 73%-94% depending on the market.

The EU is currently preparing a specific document known as a Statement of
Objections. This requires the EU to obtain permission >from companies who
filed complaints against Google to publish their confidential information
-- their complaint alleged Google was using its web search monopoly
unlawfully to hurt them. If there is no negotiated settlement, the EU
could impose substantial fines and restrictions on Google's operations.
The fines could be up to 10% of Google's annual revenues which could
amount to up to $6 billion based on 2014 revenues.

This is of interest to genealogists due to searches for people, places,
records and the concern over the right to be erased or forgotten and
accessing records of genealogical interest.

Survivor of Holocaust #general

LISBETH
 

Hello,

I just discovered a relative on a list of survivor of the Holocaust.
It's about Julie HOHENBERG - maiden name REDLINGER - born December 26,
1906, Vienna, Austria, daughter of Samuel and Szidonia NEMETI.

Julie was married to Simon HOHENBERG in Vienna in 1937. I don't know if
they had children ... probably because no yet 100 years !

According the "Survivor names printed in Aufbau Newspaper, NY 1944-1946
- published June 1, 1945 ", Julie went to Brussels (Belgium) in 1945.
I don't know what happened to her after and find no more on internet.

Does anybody has an idea where I must continue my research, please ?

One info I found is that her brother - Heinrich, Henry - died in
Westminster, London during the 1st quarter of year 1976

Her other brother (Friedrich Redlinger) lived 9 Rodney Court, London
in 1959. Friedrich got a visa for Brazil on November 3, 1959 near the
Consulate of this country in London. I don't know if he was going to
Brazil for his job, but it is quite possible that he had family there.
In fact he had two other sisters born Redlinger : Berta b.31 March 1900
and Eveline b. 4 February 1905, both born to Vienna

My younger brother remembers that my mother received letters >from her
family living in South America in the late 1950s and early 1960s :
Brazil ? Venezuela ?

Always for Friedrich, I found on Internet an arrival to Liverpool
from Bombay, India, on September 15, 1959. Still, Friedrich died in
Haywards, West Sussex last quarter of 1990s

How can I find out if this two men lived in England with their wife and
perhaps children (still alive ???)

Many thanks in advance for your help.
