Ukraine SIG Projects and Volunteering (was "Asking for maps") #ukraine

Janette Silverman
 

Aharon Refael Schvetz asked about Ukraine SIG taking on a map project.
JewishGen, including Ukraine SIG operates with very few exceptions, by
volunteers. Gesher Galicia is a separate organization. If Aharon or
anyone is volunteering to take on a map project such as the one Jay
Osborne has been working on for many years, we would gladly have you
take on such a project. When people ask if the SIG can take on the
project, the answer is generally a question asked right back - are you
willing to take on what you are suggesting?

As volunteers, all of us have our plates full attempting to ind a
balance between our full time day jobs, our families and our volunteer
jobs. The "SIG" is not a private company - it is completely dependent on
a volunteer work force. Are you ready to join the hundreds of people
already volunteering? Please don't suggest projects unless you are
willing to take on the work it involves.

Best,
Janette

GOLDHAMERs in the Spis Region of Slovakia #hungary

Madeleine Isenberg
 

Hi Anne,

I have been collecting records in the Spis Region of Slovakia for many
years. So Yes, there is a birth record for Isak (Yitzchak) born to
Arje G and Sali KOHN in Koterbach (now called Rudnany), 23 June 1867.
There is also a borth record for a younger brother, Alfred (Asher)
born in 20 Oct 1871 in Georgenberg (Spisska Sobota).

There are a number of birth records with whom the mothers were GOLDHAM(M)ERs.

Marriage record for Leon and Sali KOHN in 1866, a year before Isak's
birth, so it doesn't look like there was any "older brother." He must
have been the oldest.

There are a number of deaths and tombstones of GOLDHAM(M)ERs also, but
I do not have anything in the town you are mentioning. But then I
also don't have everything.

Hope that helps somewhat.

Regards,

Re: GOLDHAMERs in the Spis Region of Slovakia #hungary

aross2@...
 

Thank you! Yes, I should have proof read once more before I typed. My great grandfather (known as Ignatz in the US) is Isak. Then was Alfred. There were also three sisters who made it to the US - Ester, Bertha, and Anna. The birth record for Anna (Hani) recently appeared on jewishgen.org when some more data was added - she is the sister whose birth city I could not identify in modern terms. >from jewishgen.org I now know she was born in 1880. According to what little information I have been able to collect the two other sisters were born in 1886 (Ester) and 1889 (Bertha) which is quite the wide time span (and probably only an estimate since I cannot find any official-ish records). My father and others of his generation knew of no other siblings (his Goldhammer grandparents lived with him and his parents when they escaped Austria in 1938 until their deaths) but much was left unsaid.

I wonder - could you tell me how you found the 1866 marriage records for my second great grandparents? Iâ??m very impressed - Iâ??ve not been able to find that record and Iâ??d love to share that info with my various second and third cousins (Alfredâ??s grandchildren are actually my double second cousins). Iâ??ve done charts trying to connect the other Goldhammers that seemed to appear in the records in the same small villages around the same time but the connection seems to lie in generations further back than I can access at this point. Still, you never know what tomorrow brings!

Thank you so much again.

Monica Kingreen (1952 - 2017) #germany

P. S. Wyant
 

Dear Hessen researchers of German-Jewish family history,

it is my sad duty to inform you, if you were not already aware, of the
untimely death on 2 September of Monica Kingreen of Windecken, Germany. She
was a long-time friend to many of us, and a diligent scholar of the first
order of German-Jewish history in Hessen.

Most recently, Monica devoted her talents to the Fritz Bauer Institut
in Frankfurt a/M and the Jewish Museum of Frankfurt.

You can see how well she was thought of at the Institut when they
announced her passing in September:
https://www.facebook.com/fritz.bauer.institut/posts/10155727544691617 .

One of her passions was recreating the life of the Jews of Hessen before the
Shoah in photographs: http://www.vor-dem-holocaust.de/
a priceless collection of thousands of images.

I first made Monica's acquaintance, somewhat by accident, in 1992 when she
was researching her book, "Juediches Landleben in Windecken, Ostheim und
Heldenbergen". Two of the branches of my family were >from Heldenbergen and
she contacted me on the off-chance that we might assist each other in our
endeavours. She helped me a great deal over the years, and I was fortunate
enough to be able to assist her with developing the Stammbaeume for the
book, and our friendship developed >from there. She was always looking for
new areas of German-Jewish history to research, and her many tributes attest
to her indefatigable drive to reconstruct and bring back before our eyes the
life of the once vibrant Jewish communities of Hessen, and the lives of
their individual members. Two (only) of her tributes:
- 2002: Obermayer German Jewish History Award:
http://obermayer.us/award/2002/Final-ObermayerEng2002.pdf
- 2012: Culture Prize of the Main-Kinzig-Kreis:
http://www.kulturpreis.net/15-preistraeger-details/123-kingreen-monica.html

Like many others before and since, in 1996 Monica, Wolf and their children
warmly welcomed my wife and me into their home, a 300-year old former Jewish
home in what was once the Judengasse of Windecken. She was a full-time
educator at the time, a skill that served her well as she became more and
more dedicated to her calling of Jewish family history research.

I will miss her greatly, as I'm sure will all who knew her well, or only
just in passing. Hers was the face of modern Germany, doing everything she
could to make personal amends for a past that was not of her making.

If you knew her, please consider making a donation to JewishGen in her
memory, as I have done.

Shalom, Monica.
