Searching for descendants of Amalie, Rechel and Sprinza NATHAN from Spandau #germany

Judith Elam
 

My g-g-grandfather was Wulff NATHAN, born 1802 Spandau, died 1842 Berlin.
He was the son of Nathan MEYER and Taeubchen Wolff JOACHIM. I have
Taeubchen's lineage up to the 1400 and 1500's.

Wulff NATHAN was married to Emilie HIRSCHBERG (also known as MOSSNER),
daughter of Moses HIRSCHBERG of Salzwedel. Emilie is buried at Schonhauser
Allee, Berlin and I have her burial records. Wulff's records cannot be
found, but he is probably buried there too.

As far as I can tell, my sister, my 3 nephews and myself are the only
descendants of Wulff & Emilie NATHAN.

But Wulff had 3 sisters - Amalie, Rechel and Sprinza NATHAN. Wulff was born
after Rechel and before Sprinza. All 4 siblings appear on the Kurmark
naturalisation list for Spandau. Unfortunately I have no idea if or whom
these sisters married, or if there are living descendants out there.

My next step will be to order FHL film # 477288 - Register of Jewish births,
marriages, deaths, and indexes for Berlin, Brandenburg, Germany 1812-1874,
but I understand this film, like so many, is not of good quality and hard to
read. I have had no success with any of the many films I have ordered to date!

I am wondering if there are any descendants of Amalie, Rechel or Sprinza
NATHAN out there! Or if anyone has any other ideas as to how I might find
them, then please, I'd love to hear >from you! Thank you!

Please contact direct at elamj@...

genealogically interesting as the book itself and a scroll with a child's prayer
for its parents. Rabbi Paskow will discuss and show a variety of interesting
"Jewish Treasures".

Speaker: Rabbi Shimon Paskow, was ordained a Rabbi by the Hebrew Union College-
Jewish Institute of Religion in New York. He has served as chaplain in the United
States Army, and is a Colonel in the US Army Reserves Retired.Rabbi Paskow served
as spiritual leader of Temple Etz Chaim, Thousand Oaks,>from 1969 and currently

Joan Parker <joanparker@...>
 

JGS of Greater Miami will be meeting on Sunday November 1, 2009 10:00am at the
Greater Miami Jewish Federation 4200 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, FL
Tel: 305-576-4000 for directions Light refreshments
Free Secure Parking on site. (Have ID with you)

NOTE: Extra security on entering. Gate is now permanently closed and there is a
yellow security box on the left side. Press pound 001 which will connect you to
Security. Announce you are for the JGS meeting, then the gate will slide open and
close behind you.

We are so excited to be able to present Mr. Aaron Bernstein, Southern Director of
the American Society for Yad Vashem. His office is located here in the Aventura
section of Miami, FL. An added bonus is that Toby Leven, a member of our JGS was
assisted by Mr. Bernstein to locate a missing cousin in Israel and will share this
heartwarming story.

Briefly in her words: For years, my brothers and I tried to find out what happened
to my father's family in Europe during the Holocaust. We joined the JGS and they
helped identify the town they came from. That was the first and most important
step. We tried many websites for years, but in September I went to the Yad Vashem
website and typed in the name of my father and the town. Thankfully, a page of
testimony had been submitted by the only survivor of the family. I now had the name
and address of my cousin in Israel. I learned there was a local Yad Vashem office
in Aventura and Aaron Bernstein made the first contact. When I spoke to my cousin,
Shalom Rosenblatt, I told him my brothers and I were coming to Israel to meet him.
We had a marvelous reunion October 1, 2009.

Join us to hear this exciting and heart warming first-hand account of how Mr.
Bernstein helped Toby and Toby's account of the reunion. Come and enjoy the morning
of genealogy with your fellow researchers. This should be a very informative
session. 9:30 AM - Early Bird gab and catch-up time. Guests are always welcome. We
look forward to seeing you there to share this with us.
