American Federation For Polish Jews #general

sinamos_1@...
 

While going through a cache of old documents, I came across
correspondence between my mother and the American federation For
Polish Jews and the World Federation For Polish Jews.. The
correspondence dealt with obtaining visas for relatives of my mother
to permit them to go >from Poland to France.

I would like to get information about this organization, and to find
out whether any of their records still exist. The president of the
organization was Dr. Joseph Tenenbaum and the head of their visa
department was Samuel Tenenbaum.

VM7227 - Translation -1847 Lomza Birth Record #general

Burt Hecht <burt1933@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I have posted to ViewMate a record of birth of Frieda ZIOLO. I would
appreciate translation of the town names, witness names and officiating
rabbi. If you can provide the particulars for parents and grandparents that
too would be wonderful. Thank you. Please respond privately. The Image is
VM 7227. Because it has horizontal format, I hope your reader will be able
to make a shift.

VM7243/5 - Requesting translation from Romanian into English of early 20th Century letters #general

Martin Fischer
 

I have posted to Viewmate two images containing letters in Romanian that I
would very much like to have translated into English.

They include a very short note in dark ink in Romanian, apparently >from Misu
LANDMANN of Bucharest; a two-page letter in lighter ink in Romanian >from
Misu's wife, Betusca (uncertain spelling) Landmann, probably to her
brother-in-law Joseph LANDMAN of Kansas City, Missouri; and a nearly
two-page letter in English >from Betusca, probably to her sister-in-law
Rebecca Landman. (The English letter is included for context only.)

This description may be a bit confusing, but when you see the images, it
will become obvious that the writers conserved paper by including multiple
letters on both sides of one folded sheet of stationery.

The note >from Misu includes the years 1905 and 1907, although because I
don't know Romanian, I don't know if one of these is the year the letters
were written. If my understanding of who the correspondents were is correct,
then they had to be written prior to 1914, when Joseph Landman died.

Please take a look at the images at:
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7243
and
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7245

Thank you again, everyone who has help me with these translations.

Beron, Abraham "Jock" #southafrica

David P Cohen
 

Abraham "Jock" Beron was director of a school in Johannesburg known to me
only as "The Jewish Day School". Communication with his daughter, Wendy
Basden stopped abruptly after a cordial exchange.

I'll be grateful for help in contacting members of Dr Beron's family.

Re: S.J. Wolpe #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Today, I came upon an interesting reference to an S.J. Wolpe, naturalized
British citizen, resident of Transvaal, who was murdered on March 22, 1911,
in Angola. There are three references to this person in the SA National
Archives.

I am wondering if anyone knows who this was, what his actual first name was,
and why he was murdered?

One often thinks that the lives of our ancestors were safe and secure in
Southern Africa, but often they were not and this reference to a murder is
an example of this. There may be other references to situations which
occurred that also confirm this lack of security in the frontier society
which was Southern Africa.

Cheders and general Jewish Education in S.A.

To all our members who are being fantastic in
sending me information, again a big thank you.

To those who never lived in Cape Town - please
be advised that having been born and educated in
Cape Town, I decided to begin my project on this
town. Slowly, slowly, I will move around the various
provinces of South Africa. At the moment I am
collecting information, and when I have all the information
I require on the WHOLE of South Africa, will write an
article for the website.
I haven't forgotten, nor do I intend leaving anyone out.

Whoever wants to send information on
anything to do with Jewish education in South Africa, can
please do so, as at the moment my information is going into
a file, to be opened and worked on when I have everything
I require.

Thanks again.

STRIBER #general

Steinsteve@...
 

On a 1944 death certificate, I found that the maiden name of the deceased was
STRIBER. The father's first name was Julius and is listed as >from "Austria."
The handwriting seems pretty clear (e.g. the "t" is crossed and the "i" is
dotted), though I could be reading it incorrectly. The deceased is listed as
having been born in 1911 in the US. The family is a New York family, and the
deceased is buried in the New York City area (Beth David).

I cannot trace this individual back because I can't find any apparently
Jewish people with this surname, either in the 1910 thru 1930 censuses or on
Ellis Island, or on JGFF or JOWBR. I've also tried STROBER, STRUBER, STREIBER
and SCHREIBER with no success on the Julius part. I'm seeking realistic
suggestions as to what the name might really be, or if someone can find
references to the surname in some other source. I also called the cemetery
where the person on the certificate is buried, and there are no related graves
that might indicate a variation on the name.

I can email the scanned document privately if you would like. Thanks in
advance.

Sailing on the Kaylyn C 1910 #general

Hello_

My grandfather Morris Gerber sailed >from Bremen to
Philadelphia sometime in the late spring/ early summer
July 1910. On his Naturalization form, it says he
arrived July 1st. In checking ship's manifests,
info, I found there was a Kalyn and a Koln and that
the dates of the sailings do not quite add up to the
info I have. Does anyone else know about these ships
or have more info on going thru Bremen or arriving in
Philly?
