Seeking information about nationality/origin of given name Schewenka/Scheweka...? #general

Doris Nabel <Moidame@...>
 

I learned the name of my father's paternal grandmother after
obtaining a document >from Hainstadt am Main, Kreis (district)
Offenbach, Germany. Today known as Hainburg, it is a community
within the city of Hanau, in the state of Hessen, Germany.

Schewenka LO(E)B, whose maiden name was KAHN, was born in
Hetzbach, in the administrative district of Erbach, Germany.
Today, this location is Hetzbach, Beerfelden, Odenwaldkreis,
Hessen. The document reveals that she died 22 May 1889 in
Hainstadt (Nr.21/1889), at the age of 76. I can therefore date
her birth to ca. 1813.

My grandfather, Siegmund LO(E)B, listed in the above document as
reporting his mother's death, married in 1892. I recently
discovered his German Heiratsschein (wedding certificate), issued
by Klein-Umstadt, a neighboring community which was the
birthplace of Siegmund's bride, Mörle GRU(E)NEBAUM.

The Heiratsschein indicates that Siegmund is the son of the late
Salomon LO(E)B, and his widow 'Schewenka' (the script is not
clear), whose maiden name was KAHN. This information confirms the
relationships indicated in the document >from Hainstadt. The 1892
wedding certificate refers to her as her deceased husband's widow
even though she died in 1889.

The hand-written information on the Heiratsschein is filled in
using the German script of the late 19th century. I majored in
German, but the old scripts were not in the curriculum. After
consulting with several researchers, German citizens, and German
genealogy experts the past few years, I now know all details
except my great-grandmother's name, which is very difficult to
read. Nobody at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, or
at IAJGS International Conferences, felt confident about
correctly identifying the spelling of the name, and all agree
that it is not of German origin. I am therefore posting to the
both the GerSIG and JewishGen Digests.

The consensus is that the first name is one of the following:
Schewenka, Schevenka, Schwenka, Scheweka, Schavenka. The clerk
who recorded her death spelled it Schewenka. None of these
variations result in a known given name.

Regardless of the exact spelling, has anyone seen this name?

Do you have any ideas about its origin?

I hope that someone will share some information which will help
me to make progress in my father's paternal line, which is my
brick wall.

Thank you in advance for your thoughts.

B. HEINEMANN in Milwaukee and Friedrich ROSENBERG in New York #general

Helen
 

In July 1914, Friedrich ROSENBERG born in Schwerte, Germany in 1893,
arrived in the U.S.A. on the President Grant. His destination was his
cousin, B. HEINEMANN in Milwaukee. My research indicates B. HEINEMANN
was the son of Mathilde STEINWEG (a sister of Friedrich Rosenberg's
mother) and Salomon HEINEMANN. Mathilde died in an old people's home in
Frankfurt/Main 1940 - by then she was a widow. As she was born in 1861,
I assume her son, B HEINEMANN was born 1880-95. I have been unable to
find evidence of B HEINEMANN's arrival in the USA (Castle Gardens and
ancestry.com) nor any information he lived in Milwaukee (apart >from that
on the ship's manifest for Friedrich).

Friedrich ROSENBERG, changed his name to Fred BERG and was living in New
York in March 1942. I've found no further information on Fred beyond
this date.

Any suggestions on tracing these men would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Yizkor Book Project, April 2012 #warsaw #poland

bounce-2416090-772981@...
 

Shalom,

Once again, during the last month, the Yizkor Book Project grew in all sorts
of directions. This growth includes the completion of the "The Martyrdom and
Extermination of the Jews in Kielce During World War II" project and the
addition of the whole of the Hebrew section >from the Vishnevets, Ukraine
Yizkor Book, plus substantial additions to many of our other projects
currently in progress.

You will see that a number of new books >from the Bessarabian region have
been added and we are now looking for people to take on the coordination of
these important projects. In general, if you would like to become involved
in these or any of our other projects, I would definitely like to hear from
you. No defined time commitments required - you are the one to generously
volunteer some of your free time and you can decide how much time you are
able to devote to these endeavors.

Once again, this past month, a number of necrologies have been placed online
from a wide range of communities - >from Estonia, Satu Mare, Romania, Mlyniv,
Ukraine and Thessaloniki, Greece. These necrologies are not only a token way
of immortalizing the names of Jews killed in the Holocaust, they also can
provide other important genealogical details like dates, family
relationships, professions and so on and for these reasons, we do place
great efforts into preparing these substantial lists.

I am happy to note that the Yizkor Books in Print Project is well under way
and awareness and sales are growing steadily. If you are interested in
knowing more about the project, what books are available and where they may
be purchased, especially in locations outside the US, you will find all this
information at: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html

Ukraine and Thessaloniki, Greece. These necrologies are not only a token way
of immortalizing the names of Jews killed in the Holocaust, they also can
provide other important genealogical details like dates, family
relationships, professions and so on and for these reasons, we do place
great efforts into preparing these substantial lists.

I am happy to note that the Yizkor Books in Print Project is well under way
and awareness and sales are growing steadily. If you are interested in
knowing more about the project, what books are available and where they may
be purchased, especially in locations outside the US, you will find all this

Shalom,

Once again, during the last month, the Yizkor Book Project grew in all sorts
of directions. This growth includes the completion of the "The Martyrdom and
Extermination of the Jews in Kielce During World War II" project and the
addition of the whole of the Hebrew section >from the Vishnevets, Ukraine
Yizkor Book, plus substantial additions to many of our other projects
currently in progress.

You will see that a number of new books >from the Bessarabian region have
been added and we are now looking for people to take on the coordination of
these important projects. In general, if you would like to become involved
in these or any of our other projects, I would definitely like to hear from
you. No defined time commitments required - you are the one to generously
volunteer some of your free time and you can decide how much time you are
able to devote to these endeavors.

Once again, this past month, a number of necrologies have been placed online
from a wide range of communities - >from Estonia, Satu Mare, Romania, Mlyniv,
Ukraine and Thessaloniki, Greece. These necrologies are not only a token way
of immortalizing the names of Jews killed in the Holocaust, they also can
provide other important genealogical details like dates, family
relationships, professions and so on and for these reasons, we do place
great efforts into preparing these substantial lists.

I am happy to note that the Yizkor Books in Print Project is well under way
and awareness and sales are growing steadily. If you are interested in
knowing more about the project, what books are available and where they may
be purchased, especially in locations outside the US, you will find all this
