Mark Lewis <mark@...>
 

Hello - I am trying to find out what I can about the following
people/places.

c. 1800 Samuel Weile - Schoenlanka, East Prussia
1820? Schlochau
c. 1840? Lina Weile &=A0Jakob Beer - Hammerstein, nr Danzig
1871? Hedwig Beer &=A0Louis Will - Schoenlanka &=A0Lundsberg
1887-19?? Erna Will &=A0Erich Cohn - Insterburg
19??-1934 Erna Will &=A0Erich Cohn =A0- Konigsburg

The descendants came to London in 1938, but we now very little about
the lives of the family before then.

Any help, in terms to where I could start to even look for info would
be great.

Many thanks,

Street names in Stockholm #scandinavia

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings,
I am currently constructing a future exhibition for my website about
photographic studios in Europe and will be including some studio photos from
Stockholm, Sweden. I have some studio photos (with the studio/photographer's
imprint at the bottom of the photo mounts) >from the Nilsson studio and have
just received one >from the Atelier Gota on Gotgatan 71. I don't imagine that
the studio is still there of course, but I am wondering whether anyone knows
whether this address is still in existence. Does anyone know whether any
(very) old photographic studios are still doing business in Stockholm? Is
this street Gotgatan in the business center of Stockholm today?

I am also diligently looking for more studio photos taken pre-war in Sweden
or anywhere else in Western or Eastern Europe during this time. The only
condition is that they have the studio/photographer's name imprinted on the
photo, i.e at the bottom on the matte/mount. If there is printing on the
back side of the photo (usually mounted on some sort of cardboard), that
would be welcome too. If you know the names of the people in the photo,
where they were >from and can date the photo, this should be included, but
is not essential.
Thank you.

Dear Danzig Researchers,

I am delighted to announce that we are ready to begin fundraising for a
project to make available online genealogical information >from the Archives
of the Jewish Community of Danzig at the Central Archives for the History of
the Jewish People (CAHJP) in Jerusalem. This massive collection of
documents (about 2000 files, some consisting of hundreds of pages) was
shipped >from Danzig to Jerusalem in 1939, and was "the first major community
collection to be deposited in the Archives." The rich variety of
genealogical and historical information potentially contained in these
documents can be glimpsed through the CAHJP's online inventory of the
collection (see the link in the Resources section of our SIG website). This
is a rare legacy that our relatives have left us, and I hope you will help
to make it more accessible.

The fundraising beginning now is to cover the expenses of acquiring a copy
of a small part of the collection, which will be our first foray into this
apparently largely untapped (by genealogists) resource. Our target is only
$438, a small price to pay for re-opening the book closed on the Danzig
community more than 65 years ago. JewishGen, a non-profit organization, is
facilitating the processing of funds for this project, through our SIG's
JewishGen-erosity webpage:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=31

On that page is a line for "CAHJP Project" -- donations made there will
go towards this project. Contributions are tax-deductible for U.S.
citizens, and there is a link on the above page that Canadians can use to
make tax-deductible contributions through the JGS Canada (Toronto).

I hope that you will give generously towards this project, according to your
means and interest in Danzig Jewish genealogy and history. Your
contributions are absolutely needed for the project to proceed, as we will
not go forward unless the target has been met. If, despite being a
subscriber to this mailing list, you determine that you do not want to or
cannot make a donation, please reconsider whether, instead of nothing, you
could at least give the minimum of $10. Please keep in mind that your
generous donations might help those with more limited financial means
benefit >from this material, too.

If you would like to discuss your donation, please contact me for additional
details about the project.

In the future, because of the great size and variety of the collection, in
order to work with other parts of it, we will need volunteers to visit CAHJP
in Jerusalem and do certain preparatory work there for us. If you are
interested, or know someone who might be, please contact me for details.

I hope you are as excited as I am about finally having the chance to examine
this amazing collection, which, for most of us, is very difficult, if not
practically impossible, to access. Let this mark the beginning of a
rediscovery of the Jewish Community of Danzig >from its own words.

Thanks very much for your support and best regards,

Raseiniai Distribution #general

Olga Zabludoff <ozabludoff@...>
 

Members of the LitvakSIG Raseiniai Uyezd Group (RUG) today received
9,350 records representing 27 towns in the Raseiniai District. The
translated lists span the years 1846 to 1913.

Types of records include: Men avoiding conscription; Rabbi electors;
Municipal electors; Voters; Taxpayers (Box, Business and Unable to pay);
Postal savings; Real estate owners; Craftsmen; Merchants; Tavern keepers.

Enthusiastic responses have already come in >from researchers who have made
breakthroughs with these records.

Unfortunately twenty-one qualified contributors of the RUG are unable to
benefit >from the records because their email addresses are no longer
current. Would the following please contact me with current addresses:

Blivice, Marni; Colistra, Miriam S.; Curwin, David; Feinberg, David A.;
Feldman, Norman; Goldstone, Eric J.; Lapin-Haines, Louise E.; Laz, Louis;
LePere, Gene; Lieberman, Carol; Liebson, Laurence; Nathan, Joel (possibly
deceased); Pagowsky, Melvyn; Propp, Henry; Robins, Leon; Schneider,
Michael Bret; Shamroth, Elizabeth; Sumberg, John; Takata, Grace; Weinstein,
Josef; Apex Int. UK.

The LitvakSIG District Research Groups Project will soon celebrate its tenth
anniversary. In less than a decade this project has acquired, translated,
distributed and posted in the ALD about 450,000 Russian-Jewish records. It
was the pioneer; it is The Source for 19th and 20th century English-language
Litvak records.

Seeking information on the NOVEMBER family #general

Leslie Weinberg <lbw50@...>
 

My great-grandmother's maiden name was Hani NOVEMBER, married to
Abraham REISZ. Although a researcher I hired was able to find about
twelve births listed, he was unable to find Hani's marriage record,
or the record of her birth. She was born in, and lived in, Oradea,
Romania. I have been trying to tie her in with other Novembers, and
it is very difficult without being able to trace her any further,
The researcher feels her father may have been Joachim November,
There is a birth listed to Joachim and his wife, a daughter, Sali,
and he feels that Hani may have been another daughter, I did note on
one birth record, that there was a Karoly Novemmber who was the
godfather. Do any of these names fit in with anyone's November
family tree? Thanks, Leslie

NYC marriage certificates #general

Denise Azbill <famaz1@...>
 

I have been looking for about two years for a marriage record for my
great-uncle and his wife, who I know were married in NYC, probably the
Bronx. Their first son was born in 1908 in the Bronx. I know my
great-uncle came to the US as a single man, >from the EIDB (I can't find his
wife in the EIDB). I've looked in the ItalianGen and GermanGen databases to
no avail, and sent for a record >from the Municipal Archives of NYC. They
told me there wasn't one. I also looked through the marriage records for
all five boroughs >from about 1904-1908 through the LDS FHC. I'm a bit
confused about the records >from the City Clerk's office, as they say any
marriage record before 1950 would be at the Municipal Archives. Any ideas
are greatly appreciated.
