Re: Looking for the whereabouts of Gussie HOCH #galicia

Hi Sherri,
Thanks so much for your information. It makes sense what you write about Gussie being at St. Lawrence for psychiatric reasons. The only thing that confuses me about this is that on the death certificate--please see attached, where I've circled in red-- in the box that indicates 'Length of stay in town, city or village' it looks like the number 2 is written over '5 days' on the bottom of the box. What do you think is the meaning of that?

Help Needed In New York-Abraham ROSNER (1885-1979) #usa #germany

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners,

Just discovered that my late grandfather Chiel Jakub ROSNER(1866-1942) had a brother names Hirsch who had a son Abraham Jakub ROSNER. 

This is what we know about him :Abraham Rosner, born 16.08.1885 in Zabno, Poland
Wife: Erna Rosner, née Kupferblum, born on 01.07.1887 in Ostrowitz
Abraham Rosner: Schoolboyhood/apprenticeship in Zabno/Poland; 1907 he came to Leipzig, 1909 to Düsseldorf; 1911 he founded a furniture and linen installment business in Wallstr. 47, where they lived; on January 9th, 1935 he moved to Brooklyn, USA (emigration), where he first ran a small colonial goods shop.

I found on Ancestry their entry to the USA in 1935 where Erna is Ester and no children mentioned.  Abraham died in Israel in 1979 and the burial society has no record of his relatives. Ester may have died in New York in 1956(based on SSDI). A person related to the Kupferblums  remembers that:
 "My grandfather (Gershon Kupferblum)’s aunt Ester lived in Williamsburg/Brooklyn with her husband in the 1950s. They were orthodox Jews, and ran a “wine shop.” I believe they had a son named Paul. Maybe a daughter or daughter-in-law named Rose?"
Need to find Paul ROSNER  and  Rose. Did not see anything at the 1940 census.

Thanks

Jacob Rosen

Re: Could you someone help me with translating a gravestone from Hebrew to English? #translation

A bitter eulogy we mourn, mother and 7 sons and 2 daughters, on the death of the upright husband and father Reb Yitzchak son of Reb Abraham Goldstein of blessed memory, died at the age of 47 years 10 days to month of Adar 1 5643. His good to the people of his faith will be remembered for his soul. May his soul be bound in the bonds of life in the garden of Eden, amen.

Reb is just a title like Mr and doesn't signify being a Rabbi. In leap years there are two months of Adar. The date corresponds to February 16th after sunset or the 17th 1883.

My family are from Simnas and Snipiskes Lithuania and Szczuczyn in Lomza Poland. And we always liked Chrain (the Russian Chren) a sharp horseraddish condiment - and salt with latkes. My mother - a descendant of Simnas used to call them blintzes.

Re: Slovakia civil registration records #records #slovakia

Vivian I would like to introduce a different opinion here. The dispersion and destruction of the Holocaust I feel should make an exception to privacy laws. For many this is scholarly or research on ancestrieos which is meritorious. For some this is still a search for birth cerificates because these archives do not respond to survivors claiming those records are in basements. If you could request that the time period of the Holocaust birth and marriage certificates be included it would be appreciated. Also I am wondering if you are also including those records from towns like Michalovce which was not part of Hungary since 1918 and when one contacts Slovakia they claim it was not same country. Or they dont answer. Or provide the basement excuse. To clarify I would consider Holocaust time period to start from the rise of Nazis in power, the late 1920s. I think living survivors would prefer access over privacy. Thanks for considering my idea and entertaining a broad response. And a reply.on whether Michalovce is included. Thanks so much.

What is your evidence for this bold assertion?  The anecdotal evidence reported by many users of these sites suggests that the posted trees become progressively more incorrect as careless users cut and paste each others errors into ever more trees.  This is the antithesis of “progressive correctness.”

Deanna,
Unless the right side of the photo on the second line has some text, it should read
"To dear
sister
Hannah"

If, however, there is a word "от" / "om" on the 2nd line, that would indicate that it's "To dear sister from Hanna"

Maryellen,
you were pretty close with the word, but it's "Дорогой", not "Дороготы"

Re: Re Geni Family Trees - Privacy and Baptism Concerns #general

Lisa Lepore
 

Hi Joan,

The intent of trees such as those at Geni, and the ones at familysearch.org is to create one big tree where everyone connects to everyone else.  So, even if it were possible to replace your tree with the one you want, at some point the others can just add on to it again.  The problem with these types of trees is that some people are very careful with their research and are truly interested in connecting with the distant branches of their families.  Unfortunately, there are also many who are not careful, or who do not respond when you contact them.  In some cases that have been discussed here, unfortunately there are those Mormons who persist in adding Jewish people to their religious ceremonies, even though their own church has asked them not to do this.  I had some changes made to my familysearch tree by a man who answered very vaguely when I asked him how he was related to me.  He first said his wife had done it, then he didn't remember, then he stopped communicating with me.  He still makes changes to some of the people, so I'm not really sure what's going on there, and I wondered if it was related to some of these overzealous people baptizing everyone they can document?   Since I don't follow their beliefs, I don't think deceased people can agree to anything, so it's meaningless to me.   

Once you set up a public tree at one of these "one big tree" sites, this is a problem that will continue.  The only thing to do to avoid it is to keep your tree on your own computer, or find a site where you can post your tree and keep it private, or let people look at it but not add to it.  You can do this at myheritage & at ancestry, and there are probably other places I am not familiar with.

Since one cannot eliminate bad stuff added to their tree (I too had the ex-wife's family of my nephew added by  Randy Schoenberg.  It was just there one day and I have no interest in her or her family).  Her branch is not on my Ancestry or  My Heritage trees.  Can one make a gedcom of their other  tree and DL it to Geni as an upgrade to their Geni tree?  Would this eliminate all the bad stuff? Or is this just too simplistic?

Re: Slovakia civil registration records #records #slovakia

Vivian Kahn,

I should have asked: is Mr. Abolson digitizing all civil registration records, or just those for Jewish births, deaths, and marriages?

Thanks again.

Re: Slovakia civil registration records #records #slovakia

Vivian Kahn,

Thank you very much. The records I'm looking for are from the Kosice Region — from the town of Gelnica or thereabouts — and are more than 100 years old. Are any digitized records online?

I will gladly donate in support of this work. I've worked with Hungarian Civil Registration records from elsewhere in Hungary and can usually find my way around the records, but I don't know that that qualifies me to transcribe. I don't read Hungarian or Slovak.

POLIN Museum recalls the Jews imprisoned in the ghettoes across occupied Poland (and Ukraine)

tony hausner
 

 

The core exhibition at POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews has been enriched with a new installation. It presents the stories of Jewish residents of several Polish towns who at the time of the Second World War were imprisoned in the ghettoes.

Warsaw ghetto is the most widely-known, yet the Germans established six hundred sealed-off quarters for the Jewish minority, among others in Lwów, Łódź, Przemyśl, Radom, Rzeszów and Tarnów. The first ghetto was established eighty-one years ago, on 8 October 1939.
