query regarding names: same person? #general

Jenni Hymoff Koeppel
 

Hello again, after months of not being able to get to genealogy,
I now find I can't stop...

I would appreciate your advice: do you think these two names are
the same person? They are the fathers of two men, written on
separate gravestones in different cemeteries - we are trying to
fit them all together and find out who is sibling to who......

Wolf: died 23 July 1959 - son of Rabbi Shiya Aziel

Jacob: died 1929 age 79- son of Yeshaya Ezial

Any suggestions as to how to obtain documentary proof that Wolf and
Jacob were brothers?

Thanks very much for your invaluable help!

Dear Fellow Jewishgenners,

If there is anyone in the Chicago area who can obtain a copy
of a Will/Probate record for me, I will greatly appreciate it.
I am willing to either swap with NY research or pay. Either way,
costs will be reimbursed without question.

Please contact me privately.

The BBC documentary "Who Do You Think You Are", Series 5, David Suchet, can
be viewed in BBC iPlayer format by UK residents only and regular text format
for those outside the UK on the following site:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/whodoyouthinkyouare/new-stories/david-suchet/index.shtml

The BBC is presently working on an international iPlayer version for the
series.

On the site, if you go to the section entitled "How We Do It", you will see
the methodology for the genealogical research that was undertaken. Not only
were the people mentioned in the program involved, but many in the Jewish
genealogical community were participants in providing input.

You can also see other programs in the series including one for American TV
personality Jerry Springer.

Yizkor book inspires children's book #yizkorbooks

Joyce Field
 

Who would have thought that an interest in yizkor books would have
inspired a children's story based on a tale told in a yizkor book?

Yale Strom, the author of the "Book of Klezmer," part of which
appears at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/klezmer/klezmer.html, has
written a delightful children's book, "The Wedding that Saved a
Town." The story is based on a folk tale that if two orphans get
married in a cemetery, a miracle may happen.

I have no interest in this book. I call it to your attention only
because of its connection to yizkor books.

Success!* Erna TRAU found! #general

Jacquie Gruszecki <yehudit5@...>
 

Re: Searching present-day family of Tsipporah Leah(nee POPEL)& David IUZIS.
My father's Romanian cousin named Erna (nee IUZIS?) married "Zitty" TRAU
either in Romania or in Israel and last know residence was Tel Aviv(?)Israel.
Success!* Erna TRAU found in Tel Aviv, Israel!
Thank you so much to everyone who so kindly wrote to me
about my posting with wonderful suggestions as well as
actually checking out the telephone directories in Israel,
looking for my relatives names.Thank you to a fellow Genner,
Patricia(Israel),for locating and telephoning my cousin Erna TRAU in Tel Aviv.
I actually telephoned Erna today and made a wonderful connection .
Erna told me that her son is married and they have 2 teenage children.
I was surprised to find out that he has been living in California,U.S.A.
for approximately 18 years! I telephoned my new cousin in California and
now I have sent him our first e-mail including photos of my adult children.
How about that? We are his family's new Canadian cousins!
More cousins to search for, but this success tastes sweet!!! Just in
time to make our New Year even sweeter!
L'Shana Tova everyone. JewishGenners are the best!

Best wishes,

SCHWAB Bavaria to USA #general

Susan Edel
 

I am looking for Ida SCHWAB, a sister of my great grandfather. I believe
she came in about 1868 to the USA (New York) with her youngest brother,
Moses. Most of her family ended up in Cincinnati, Ohio but I do not know
what happened to Ida. Can anyone give me any help in how to go about
finding out what happened to her and where she went. I do not know if she
married.

Many thanks and wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year.

Help needed with German "Suetterlin" #austria-czech

Sharon & Peter Haas <haases@...>
 

Hi,

Unfortunately I was unable to get ViewMate to work for me, but I would still
appreciate some help in reading a couple of ancestors' names (>from
Czechoslovakia) that I found on some documents. These names are handwritten
in old German ("Suetterlin" ?).

If someone would be kind enough to volunteer, I would then send you two very
small JPG files and ask you to make out the names that are on them. Please
respond to me privately (to: haases@gmail.com).

I"m sorry, but I don't know how to prevent more than 1 or 2 volunteers >from
responding, but I promise to place another posting to the SIG as soon as
I've had a successful "translation"

Thanks.

Cracow (Krakow) deportations to Auschwitz #galicia

Renee Steinig
 

Yesterday, Peter Lande posted the following message to the
JewishGen Discussion Group. With his permission, I am repeating it
here.

=========

Original message:

Relatively little attention has been paid to the wealth of
information contained in the 2002 Auschwitz Museum publication,
Ksiega Pamieci Transporty Polakow do Kl Auschwitz z Krakowa,
1940-1944 (Memorial Book, Transport of Poles >from Krakow to
Auschwitz, 1940-1944). This five volume set of books contains
information on about 18,000 Jews and non-Jews deported >from the
Cracow area. The names themselves have long been available on the
Auschwitz Museum website (enter Search and then family name).
However, the information given on the website is often less
extensive than that contained in the books themselves. For example,
Blitzer, Kalman is listed on the website as having been born
January 1, 1923 in Bojanow and perishing in Auschwitz October 28,
1941. The relevant book entry contains a transport list which gives
his date of arrival in Auschwitz, identifies his date of birth as
February 1, 1923, born in Bojanow, and includes his Auschwitz
prisoner number, 21894, and profession, Glasslehrling (glassmaker
apprentice).

Persons interested in the Cracow area (not just the city) should
check the Auschwitz website. If a name of interest is located, then
turn to the book for possible additional information. The book is
available at the New York Public Library and various university
libraries around the United States.

The Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum's online database can be
searched at

A description of the memorial book at
<http://www.auschwitz.org.pl/new/index.php?tryb=stale&language=EN&id=357>
says it is dedicated to those sent to Auschwitz ">from prisons in
Cracow (Montelupich), Tarnow, Wisnica Nowy, Rzeszow, Muszyna, Nowy
Sacz, Sanok, Nowy Targ, and Zakopane."

If you find a relative listed in the Auschwitz database who was
deported >from Cracow (Krakow) -- an icon with a K will be to the
left of the name -- Peter may be able to provide more information
from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum's resources. You can email
