Family in Sao Paulo in 1940's - Please help identify #latinamerica

Lawrence Kohn <lhkohn@...>
 

I have posted five photos of families on ViewMate that I hope someone can
help me identify.
Two photos were taken in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1953. They show a husband and
wife named Salomao and Fanny. They were supposedly my mother’s aunt and
uncle. According to a handwritten note left by my mother, their surname were
possibly ZEIGUR, ZUGER or something like this. This name may be related to
my maternal grandmother’s maiden name, ZUCKER. (The ZUCKER family
originally came >from the town Ustilug, Ukraine.)
The remaining three photos, dated 1947, show the families of two brothers,
Abram and Isak. They lived in Santo Andre (Sao Paulo), Brazil. They may be
related to Salomao and Fanny. The signature of Abram is on each of the three
photos. Unfortunately, I have never been able to decipher his surname.

With the possible exception of these families, I have no knowledge of having
relatives in Brazil, either in the past or in the present. After my mother
passed away, these photos were discovered among her things.
If anyone can help me identify these people or give me advice on how to
search for them, I would greatly appreciate it. I have already tried
searching the available Brazilian records on Ancestry and Family Search, but
with no luck.

Re: Lemberg/Lwow/Lvov 1849/1853 Cadastral Map on the Gesher Galicia Map Room #austria-czech

Eli Brauner
 

In response to our indefatigable Pamela...

The 1849 map is a wonderful source for research. Our family dwelt at
Peltewna St. The map gave us the parcel number -- 2277. Using the
parcel number a bulk of documents stored in the Tabula register
discovered many many details about the family day to day life. The map
also unrevealed where the family soap factory was located in the house
yard.

The map gives us a good picture of the many synagogues in the area.
On the south-western corner of Theodore's Square, one can see the
Jacob Glanzer. It was built in 1841-1844. The other synagogues visible
in the cadastral map in that area are the Beit Midrash of the Suburb (to
the southeast of Jakub Glanzer) and the Great Synagogue of the Suburb
(further to the southeast). The Temple is located to the east of this
group, on the eastern side of Zolkwier Haupt Strasse (Zolkiewska).
Knowing the prayer places one can look if there exist documents about
the congregation.

So thank you Gesher Galicia and hurray to Jay Osborn.

many of the streets and significant buildings still visible today. The city
center is ringed by numbered quarters and well-built named
neighborhoods, including at least three known Jewish districts. All
buildings and land parcels are numbered. Labeled on the map are two
synagogues and almost two dozen churches and monasteries, major
Jewish and Christian cemeteries, military and other imperial facilities,
theaters, parks, schools, and more, with many named streets and
squares....

GORDON and MELER #general

Joan Kramer
 

Hello all,

I may have finally solved the mystery of my great great grandmother's
maiden name: Shifra Ela GORDON. If I am correct, then her father was
Gershon GORDON, son of Movsha, son of Leizer, son of Gershon.

Shifra Ela was born about 1843 or 1844, and married Shloima Haim MELER.

They had four children:
My great grandmother, Gite MELER, who married Harris/Zvi Hirsch
SHUR/SHURE;
Tirtza MELER, who married Chaim/Hyman NAJOWSKI/Nevis;
Chaya MELER, who married Yakov/Yankel ABRAMOVITCH;
Daniel MELER/MELLER, who married Dora RUBENSTEIN.

Gita and Tirtza emigrated to Chicago
Chaya and her family emigrated to Palestine - Tel Aviv.
Daniel emigrated to South Africa.

If anyone recognizes any of the names above, I would appreciate hearing
from you directly.
Many thanks.

USCIS Webinar on "Records Lost": Women Who Lost Their Citizenship Through Marriage #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) is offering a
free webinar on "Records Lost" on July 24, 2014 at 1:00PM EDT. The focus of
the webinar is about women who lost citizenship through marriage,
naturalization and repatriation between 1922-1956.

In 1907, the Expatriation Act mandated that all women acquired their
husband's nationality upon marriage - and between 1907 and 1922 many women
lost their US citizenship by marrying non-US citizens. This webinar examines
citizenship records documenting the resumption of US citizenship by these
women's through the naturalization under the 1922 Married Women's Act and
through an expedited repatriation program that started in 1936.

Video: "I Remember Jewish Drohobycz" on the Gesher Galicia website #ukraine

Pamela Weisberger
 

Gesher Galicia has uploaded a new short video to our site:

"I Remember Jewish Drohobycz" with David Einsiedler

http://www.geshergalicia.org/videos/remember-jewish-drohobycz-david-einsiedler/

In this portrait of the vanished world of Eastern European Jewry, the
late David Einsiedler, born in Drohobycz in 1919, recounts the heart
and soul of shtetl life between the two World Wars. Through personal
reminiscences he leads us through the streets and into the homes and
schools of his Galician town. David describes moving to Lvov, then to
the university in Pisa, Italy, and on to America in the late 1930s as
the threat of war looms over his beloved home and the lives of his
loved ones.

David attended the King Wladyslaw Jagiello Gymnasium in Drohobycz. The
artist, poet and author, Bruno Schulz (1892-1942,) was one of his
teachers. The video page also has photos of David's family, the 1934
school photo of his gymnasium classmates (and another photo with
hand-written names) as well as a pencil drawing Schulz made of David's
fiance, Stella Batischan. There is also a link to an article by
David that more fully describes life in Galicia.

This video was shot in 2005 and shown at the Las Vegas IAJGS
conference, but it has never been online until now. Many genealogists
were the beneficiaries of David's research talents over the years when
communication was only done by phone calls and snail mail. His memory
is a blessing to all of us.
