Re. Forced Labor Camps #hungary

Susanna Vendel
 

Thank you Tom Klein for sharing this information. I filled in the
registration form on this page for my father who was interned in the
forced labor camp on Hungaria krt 170-172. He escaped hours before the
interned were transported toward Germany. He jumped over the wall of
the backyard of the camp to the courtyard of a monastery of Catholic
nuns (Ferences M=C3=A1ria Misszion=C3=A1rius N=C5=91v=C3=A9rek) and was hid=
den by them.
The monastery is still running and I was there last summer. it was
very emotional!

Re: Baker St. School, London's East End #unitedkingdom

Madeleine Isenberg
 

I just wanted to thank Jeremy FRENKEL, Christine HILLS, and Martin
DAVIS for responding to my quest for information on the Baker St.
School. While no one had a photo, I did receive maps and information
that were very useful and informative. It also opened up a few
interesting e-mail exchanges. And sometimes, that's where we are all
part of a "mutual-aid society!"

So many thanks and keep up the good work!

Conflicting Results from 2 DNA Sites #dna

Pat Fuller
 

Hello DNAers - I just joined this group, so I apologize if this question has
been asked and answered before.

I match someone at the 2nd-4th cousin level with 119 shared cM on Family
Tree DNA. But on Ancestry DNA, our match is at the 4th-6th cousin level with
only 26.5 shared cM. I have never received such discrepant results >from 2
DNA sites before. I am in touch with the person I match, so I know it's the
same person. Could someone please explain? Could there be a mistake? How can
we determine which one is correct?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Rabbi Isaac Simcha HURWITZ-Hartford, Ct. d-1936 #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I am still trying to confirm the exact relationship between Rabbi
Isaac Simcha HURWITZ of Hartford, Ct. (d.1936) and the family of (my
grand father) Chaim Yitzchak ABRAMOWITZ .. My grandfather's father
came to Palestine >from Novarodok probably around the same time that
Rabbi H. came >from Novarodok to the USA. (1870-1890?)

My mother writes in her autobiography that her family (the
ABRAMOWITZs) emmigrated in the 1920s >from Palestine to Hartford, Ct.
presumably to be with her "cousins" the HURWITZs but she does not give
the exact relationship.

On the HURWITZ side several members of his extended family (WAXMANs,
RUDMAN etc.) said to me that they also believe wer'e cousins but no
one seems to know the exact relationship.

Does anyone know of a family relationship between the above Rabbi
HURWITZ and a Rabbi David , who was "the" Rabbi of Novarodok during
the 18th cent? I have no family name for him but as far as I know his
son adopted his father-in-law's family name HURWITZ .

I think I've seen a Geni connection but it far too extended and
connected by marriages which took place much later in the 20th cent.
TIA

Search for Miriam BRAND #romania

David Lewin
 

I am hoping someone on this SIG may recognize this family - or may
have some idea how I can solve this enigma

Can you please help and guide me?

My information is exceedingly sparse. It comes >from a document in
Hebrew - so the names here are transliterated as best as I was able
to guess. For example: BRAND which I use here may well have been
BEREND ( no vowels in Hebrew ! ).

I am hoping to locate Miriam BRAND born 11 Dec 1945 in Romania - I do
not know the name of the actual town.

Miriam is the daughter of Stefan BRAND (b. 8 Apr 1908) and Bertha
(b.28 Jul 1908)
Stefan was the son of Samuel BRAND and Bertha was the daughter of a
Salomon - family name unknown.

The family arrived in Israel in March 1950 and seems to have left
Israel again in Nov. 1974 - destination unknown.

In Israel they lived in Bat-Yam

It is possible - but I do not know this for certain - that there is a
family relationship between this BRAND family group and a woman named
Giselle LIFSCHITZ nee SUSSMANN

Would you have any knowledge of this family or can you guide us where
else I could ask?

Thank you

Andrew Zalewski to be Guest Speaker at JGS of Central Maryland on June 2 #galicia

Shelley K. Pollero
 

A special event of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Central Maryland will
feature a talk by guest speaker, Andrew Zalewski, MD, Gesher Galicia
board member and author.

Title:
"Cadastral Surveys and Maps of Galicia: Visiting Ancestral Towns
and Meeting the Neighbors"

Sunday, June 2, 2019
The Residences at Vantage Point
5400 Vantage Point Road, Columbia, MD 21044
1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The event is open to the public.

Synopsis:
The presentation will introduce lesser known resources about
multiethnic Galicia under Habsburg rule (1772-1918). With the help of
archival maps, the audience will be able to follow the changing Galician
borders and the exhilarating development of railroads. Austrian maps,
postcards and population censuses, together with newspaper clippings
and pamphlets, will bring to life cities, such as Lwow and Krakow, and
other, smaller towns. Market squares, streets, and schools -- situated
close to synagogues and churches -- provided shared spaces for Poles,
Ukrainians, and Jews. Those attending will also "enter" 19th-century
homes to meet their Jewish or Polish ancestors -- all illustrated by
Gesher Galicia's archival collections.

The advice received >from Jay Osborn, digital map manager of Gesher
Galicia, in preparation of this program is gratefully acknowledged.

About the speaker: Andrew Zalewski, a former professor of medicine at
Jefferson University, Philadelphia, is a board member of Gesher Galicia
and past editor of the Galitzianer. He is a frequent speaker at meetings
of genealogical societies and cultural institutions in the USA and
abroad. His research on Galicia has focused on the legal status of Jews,
population surveys, and Jewish physicians.

Andrew Zalewski has authored two books: "Galician Trails: The
Forgotten Story of One Family" and "Galician Portraits: In Search of
Jewish Roots," in which he traced the story of his Christian and Jewish
ancestors presented in a broad historical context.

Everyone is welcome to attend!

Maryland: mlbishow@comcast.net or info@geshergalicia.org .
