ViewMate: Can you identify anyone in this photo: Friends & family reunion in Bad Ems in the mid-1920s #germany

Joyaa Antares
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

I have posted a photo of a mid-1920s friends/family reunion to ViewMate.
It shows 24 people.
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM76636

The photo was taken at the Hotel Staatl Kurhaus in Bad Ems, Germany but the
identified family came >from BERLIN (1870s), and prior to this >from Scherwin
and "Friedeberg".

The photo shows Aron LEVY, Louise (nee BADER) LEVY and their grandson, Eddie
LEVY. Aron and Louise moved >from BERLIN to London, England in the 1880s.
I expect that many or all of the 21 unidentified people were based in
Germany. Aron was a Tailor or Hatter, so people >from this profession may
appear. Young Eddie was a teenager so his profession isn't relevant, but
if this is more of a family photo, then it will help to know that his
mother's maiden name was SKOTZKI, and his maternal grandmother's maiden name
was BANSEMER.

Do you recognise anyone?

Aron LEVY (Schwerin?) and Louise (nee BADER) LEVY ("Friedeberg"?) - resident in Berlin in the 1870s- View-Mate #germany

Joyaa Antares
 

Dear Fellow GerSiggians,

I have been a member of this SIG for over 10 years, have experience in
Polish, Baltic State, UK and USA research, good computing skills but have
until now been daunted by the prospect of researching my German GG
grandparents.

My GG grandparents are Aron LEVY and Louise (nee BADER) LEVY and I need your
help in locating records relating to their parents and siblings.

Aron LEVY was apparently born c.1846-7. According to the 1911 England
census he was >from Schwerin. He was a Hatter or Tailor/Master Tailor. I
don't know the names of his parents, but information passed through the
family suggests that his siblings included brothers Adolf (born c. 1852,
married "Celine"), Julius (born c. 1854, married "Mathilda") and Moritz.
Any early information about this family would be very welcome.

Aron's wife was Louise (nee BADER) LEVY, born c.1850. According to the 1911
England census she was >from "Friedeberg". Nothing else known. So again, any
early information would be much appreciated.

By 1877 Aron and Louise lived in Berlin (Andreasstraase 70) with their young
children Arthur and Selma. However, I am mainly looking for records prior
to 1876.

I have a photograph currently on ViewMate which may show unidentified
members of their family: surnames LEVY, BADER, SKOTZKI (Arthur's wife since
1902) and BANSEMER.

Re: Rostov #lithuania

Stanislav Gorbulev <gorbulev@...>
 

Some metrical books for this period are in the State Archive of Rostov
region:
Births 1917-1920
Marriages 1915-1919
Deaths 1915-1919

There are probably as well many secondary sources (address books,
tax payers lists etc.)

The old cemetery (1865-1923) doesn't exist anymore, the registration
book for the years 1870-1908 is in the State Archive, others are
unknown to me.
The new cemetery (1922-1971) still exists and is in a quite good shape.
A registration book probably never existed (according to several
independent sources).

I was very interested to see this thread concerning Rostov-on-Don (Rostov-
na-Donu, in Russian). My father and his family lived there >from 1915 to
1921, when they were exiled >from the western Russian empire (specifically
Kovno) during World War I. Given that this period included the Russian
revolution and civil war as well as the world war, I am not too optimistic
that records >from that time exist. However, I never give up entirely!
If anyone knows of records of the Jewish community in Rostov-on-Don during
that era, I would be happy to know about them. I would also be interested
in records of the Jewish cemetery, where it is possible my maternal
great-grandmother is buried.

With thanks,

It sounds very interesting.  Will there be an English translation or will it be available in a pdf format so that we can use Google translate to translate the names?

Peter Dreifuss
 

I would greatly appreciate a thorough translation of the Russian text of
my grandmother's (Chaja Sora CZARNOLAWSKA) 1879 birth record (Acta 36)
obtained >from Jewish Records Indexing Poland. She immigrated into the US
in 1906. US records and family records indicate she was born in Grajewo
in 1886 although the index indicates 1879.

Re: Zelevansky name

David Shapiro
 

It's interesting that you compare Zelevansky with Shapiro. Here in Israel there is Zelevansky family of roshei yeshiva, who are descended from the Shapiro family of Volozhin. See "The Unbroken Chain", vol. I, p. 438 (spelled there "Zalavansky").

Hi Helen 
I also read a book called Two Princes and a Queen by Shmuel David about the Kladovo transport as my cousin Fritz Waltuch was one of the travellers. 
Having contacted him he told me they have meetings in Israel every now and then.

Dear ms Miller,
 I read your e-mail with interest. I assume you are aware of a jounalist, Anshel Pfeffer and the Manchester Pfeffers.

Re: Looking for help please - searching great grandparents

Valentin Lupu
 

I found these records that are probably related to your Albeitman family:
- Birth records (one of your grandmother Polley Pauline)





- Marriage records. Richard Ingram married Pauline in 1926 and Eva in 1936!





Pauline and Richard had two children born in 1927 and 1928, Sheila and John.





- Death records for Marks, Esther Millie and Harry:

Zembiner Benevolent Congregation Membership Records

Nancy
 

According to the 1942 WPA Historical Records Survey, Guide to Vital Statistics in the City of New York, Borough of Brooklyn - Churches, the Zembiner Benevolent Congregation created a one-volume list of member deaths from 1913 to an unspecified end date. The Congregation was founded in Brooklyn in 1908. I'm very interested in this because I have several families from Zembin, including BELKIN, PADNOS, KLONSKY, and related families who settled in the NYC area. Can anyone tell me if this list of member deaths is publicly available/accessible?

Thanks in advance,
Nancy


#jgsoregon #research #DNA #dna

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Portland is pleased to announce its January program Endogamous DNA presented by Emily Aulicino.  The program will be held January 19, 2020 at 10:30AM at Neveh Shalom 2900 SW Peaceful Ln, Portland, OR 97239. 

Endogamy is the custom of marrying only within the limits of a local community or religious or cultural group. Endogamous populations have added challenges with using DNA and determining common ancestors. This is especially present in Jewish communities, making the use of DNA difficult for Jewish genealogy researchers. This presentation will explain the three major types of tests and provide suggestions to assist the tester in determining how their DNA matches could relate to them. Emily Aulicino is a retired teacher, genealogy speaker, and Regional Coordinator for the International Society of Genetic Genealogists (ISOGG). She writes a DNA blog and teaches genetic genealogy classes at the Genealogical Forum of Oregon.


Please 
Save the Dates for our upcoming scheduled programs.  Topics and presenters will include:

·         February 16, 2020 - Why They Left, Where They Went, and the Tales Their Journeys Can Reveal with Pam            Vestal.

·         March 8, 2020 - Helping Hands session at the Hollywood Library.

·         April 26, 2020 - Adding Historical Context to Your Genealogical Research with Kate Eakman.

·         May 31, 2020 - Making the Most of FamilySearch for Jewish Research with Todd Knowles.

All are welcome. There is no charge for attending but we welcome new members. Membership is $23/year. All sessions start at 10:30 AM. Doors open at 10:00AM for those who would like help with specific research questions.

 

 


UPDATE Surprising DNA results from Ancestry

Zora Moore
 

I received so many well wishes and great advice when I posted about my Surprising DNA results and finding out I was 51% Jewish.   I have since been able to confirm my birthfather,  Its unfortunate that he passed away in 2003.  I do have siblings that I hope to connect with.  I did talk to a Nephew and Niece, I think their parents need a minute to process the discovery of having a sister.  All in due time I am sure.  I went into this knowing that I was embarking on an adventure, and I am sure there are many more to come as we navigate newfound family members.   So I'm sure there will be more updates to come, but I wanted to thank everyone here for being open and helpful.   Stay Golden!
