New Article on IGRA website - “Hitting the Jackpot”

Elena Bazes
 

IGRA (Israel Genealogy Research Association) has posted a new article on its website, “Hitting the Jackpot” by Garri Regev.

Garri has been volunteering at the National Library of Israel in their Genealogy Center for many years helping people with their genealogy research. In this article, Garri takes us through the step by step process she took in which, within a couple of hours, she was able to find a huge amount of information for a couple who had arrived at the Library with almost no knowledge about their family.

Many resources that Garri used in her research that day are discussed here and examples of the results of the research are given.  

Garri Regev lives in Israel and was an elementary teacher there for over 20 years. Garri has been doing genealogical research since 1995.  She volunteers at the Genealogy Center at the National Library of Israel and lectures on Genealogy to various groups and has spoken at 8 IAJGS Conferences. She is among the founders and was President of the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA). Garri serves on the Board of LitvakSIG.

Re: A Brick Wall

janice1219@...
 

I would love to give more and specific information, but I do not have any.  The naturalization record is listed under my g-father, with no specifics about Bertha.  The 1930 census is not much help, as there are several Max and Bertha Langers listed.
As for the marriage certificate, it has no information other than what I have listed, other than July 7, 1917.
No one is alive to ask.  I have seen two different spellings of Grutman/Grubman.  I do not know which is correct, because the family insists on Groveman (which I know is not the original).  Sorry I cannot give more information.

"...found she got her divorce in Alabama, where we had family.  The South has easier divorces."


Actually, most southern states do *not* grant divorces as easily as other states, even to this date.  However, I am glad you found your family member, Marge.

Re: MANDEL's #belarus

Anna Rozina
 

Hello! My name is Anna rosin. I am from Russia (Saint Petersburg). You are looking for ancestors from Belarus named Mandel. So, my maternal great-grandmother had the surname Mandel before her marriage and lived in the city of Mozyr (Belarus). After her marriage, she became Drabovskiy. Even before her marriage, her entire family moves around the world. And she alone remains in Mozyr. So we don't know anything about Mandel on her side. My great-grandmother Sara's name is Lea Simhovna Mandel (which means that her father's name was Simha(Simon) Mandel).
She was born in 1886 (Mazyr?) and died on 25.02.1978 in Leningrad. I married  in Mazyr with Yudel Drabovsky (my great-grandfather).I would be happy if there are any matches in the pedigree of Sarah Leia. But unfortunately, nothing is known about her origin, since her parents, brothers and sisters (how many of them were there?) all went abroad. And at that time, it was not possible to find out anything about them. 
 
Best regards
Anna

Re: A Brick Wall

Renee Steinig
 

I followed these steps to search for Bertha:

1) Tried to narrow down likely birth year. (Her marriage record, Max's
naturalization petition, and censuses suggest c. 1900.)

2) Tried to narrow down likely year of arrival. (According to Max's
petition and censuses, it was c. 1914.)

3) Searched further for spellings of her name and found that her
marriage license application said GRUBMAN -- a more likely name than
GRUTMAN.

4) Searched on Steve Morse's Ellis Island
One-Step(https://stevemorse.org/ellis2/ellisgold.html) for someone who
was born within 5 years of 1900 and arrived within 5 years of 1914,
whose first name began with B and last name sounded like GRUBMAN. The
result: Brane GRIWMAN, 16, who arrived in January 1914. She was from
"Kliskewitz, Russia" and her mother was Perl. She was joining brother
Schmuel on Stanton St.

GRIWMAN (pronounced GRIVMAN) comes close to GROVEMAN and Perl is a
good match to the name Pauline, so I'm optimistic.

On Ancestry, this manifest is indexed as GRINMAN.

Kliskewitz could be the town that's now Klishkivtsi, Ukraine
(https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/community.php?usbgn=-1042180).
Near Khotyn (Khotin), it was in Bessarabia, a region of the Russian
Empire, before WWI, and in Romania between the world wars.

A notation on Brane's manifest suggests that she herself was
naturalized c. 1943, but I couldn't find a corresponding record on
Ancestry.

Janice, do you know Bertha's Hebrew/Yiddish name? Unfortunately, it's
not on her gravestone, which is pictured on FindaGrave
(https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/205470442/bertha-langer) .

War Lives is a new website to document the lives of people in World War II. The information is shown as a timeline that combines records from different archives and other organizations.

 

Go to: https://www.oorlogslevens.nl/?lang=en

 

For example I typed in the name “Goldberg” and those with last name popped up and I chose “Jacob Goldberg” which had 4 results listing the camps he was in. in addition by clicking on the name gave me his birth date and place and death date and place.

Re: A Brick Wall

Hilary Henkin
 

What resources have you tried already?  Naturalization records?
Censuses?  It sounds like you have her marriage record - yes?  Was she
married in the Bronx - when?

Your ad lacks the details by which we can help better.

Hilary Henkin

P.S. And by the way, a more descriptive Subject line would improves your
chances for successful responses.  Include perhaps the surname, country,
something to narrow down what you're asking about.  Brick walls are
really common in this hobby.

Jews in Ireland

While always a small Jewish community in Ireland it is an established community. In addition, a number of Jews immigrated to Ireland in the late 19th and 20th centuries whose families were from central Europe, due to the pogroms, and especially from Lithuania. Jews also stopped in Ireland along the way to immigrating to North America—and may have lived there for a few years.  You never know what an Irish record may reveal!

Hello Leah,

Make an enquiry with World Jewish Relief, the following is their website address
https://www.worldjewishrelief.org/about-us/your-family-history 
They have the records for 57000 refugees that came to the UK from Germany and Austria
before and after WWII., they may be able to help you.

There is also a record for Berta Heilpern on a passenger list in 1948 for a passage to New York on the website of Findmypast.co.uk

Re: Domestic Service Visas: 1938 . . .

Irv Adler
 

Leah,

My mother came to England on a domestic permit in Sept 1938. I have been doing research on this topic and have been trying to to see what one of these permits looks like for more than 5 years now with no success. So, if you find one please let me know.
There has been quite of bit of research done on Austrian women who fled Vienna and came to England as domestics. A leading researcher in this field in Tony Kutschner. The Association of Jewish Refugees in London is a good source of information on the women who came to the UK as domestics. A complete book on the subject has been written by Traude Bollauf. 
Let me know if you would like to discuss this in further detail.

I  would suggest a U.S state search.  I searched for a New York City cousin's divorce and found she got her divorce in Alabama, where we had family.  The South has easier divorces.

Domestic Service Visas: 1938 . . .

Sniderlh
 

First, I would like to thank those who responded to my earlier quest for some sort of confirmation of my father's cousin's wife's death details.  Rosa Lichtenfeld Heilpern, it appears, was an unfortunate member of the 1939 Kladovo Transport group that in 1939, fled Vienna, Austria via the Danube, for Palestine, but were detained (for many reasons) in Yugoslavia, & ultimately killed by the Nazis.  I had information on where & generally when, but I didn't have the details about the how, leading up to her death, the missing details to better "prove" the theories I had after researching. The collective knowledge of this group is amazing, and I am most grateful to those who helped me out.  As mentioned before, Rosa's husband, Hans Heilpern, made if safely to Palestine in 1938, on board the illegal transport boat, Chepo.

And now for another brick wall with this family, Berta Heilpern, sister to Hans.  I found her listed as "paid domestic help" on the 1939 England & Wales Register.  In further research I read about a reference to "Domestic Service Visas," which were issued to Jewish refugees from both Germany & Austria. I was not aware of these.  I would have to think Berta somehow obtained one of these visas, but can find nothing of such a list, anywhere.  I would like to try and find out the following: 1) when she left Vienna for London ( I heard 1938, after May, when her last grandparent, whom she had been caring for, died.)  2) how she got to London & what route  and now, 3) to see this Domestic Service Visa and any details it might provide me.  If anyone has any knowledge of the visas, and where/how I might be able to search them, I would greatly appreciate it.  Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,

Leah Heilpern Snider

Re: question on burial record

molly25905@...
 

Max! You are amazing. I've looked for clues to this place or occupation and you solved it in minutes. From looking at maps of Belarus I can see how close Pader is to Slutsk and it makes so much sense. I'm going to go with this theory. Thank you so much!

Hi Molly,

My guess is that the name Paderier or Paderiver comes from the village Pader near Slutzk in Belarus. The ending -er is yiddish. The slavic ending -ski gave the names Paderski and Paderevski. Look A. Beider, A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames from the Russian Empire, Avotaynu, 2008. The passenger manifest for the Mishelov family in 1919 shows that they came from Uzda, which is between Slutzk and Minsk. It fits with an earlier origin from Pader. 

Hope this helps,
