Ancestry Library Edition Extended Through March 31, 2021 For Remote Access #announcements #general #records #usa

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

I have been advised that Ancestry Library Edition, during the pandemic has been temporarily expanded to library cardholders working remotely, courtesy of ProQuest and its partner Ancestry. 

Remote access will be available until the end of March 2021 and will be re-evaluated monthly as needed.

This is for the United States.  


Check with your library to determine if they have an Ancestry Library Edition and you will need a library card from that library to access remotely.

Where is this Hungarian / Romanian town? #hungary #romania

Steve Stein
 

On a US World War I document for a not-so-close relative, it says that he was born in "Kaschan, Hungary." The rest of the family came from various towns in what is today northwestern Romania. I would consider the target region to be bounded by a triangle of large places Oradea, Cluj, and Tasnad. I believe this relative also came from this region. I've searched the JG Town Finder and Gazetteer with various search strategies with nothing even remotely close.

The only reference to the town that I can find by googling, other than someone else also claiming to come from Kaschan, is a reference to the "Kaschan-Oberbergar Bahn" supposedly part of a rail network in Austria-Hungary.

Any suggestions? TIA.

He will share what happened to the Jewish communities of the area, its cemeteries, and the locations of concentration/forced labour camps. After looking at Romania’s role in the Eastern European “Holocaust by Bullets” and the War, Harry will speak to the current state of local Jewish communities, cemeteries, and memorials. He will specify how to search documents in Romanian National Archives, and detail sources consulted prior to and while travelling. Sadly, there will be no Romanian strudel.

Looking for grave of Lea Lustgarten probably in Haifa, Israel #israel

George
 

Hello, I'm trying to find the grave of Lea Lustgarten who was born in Mecina Poland in 1902 and was buried in Israel, probably Haifa in 1987.  I wanted to find out the names of her parents.   If I find her grave I know I can find the name of her father.  Would the death certificate state the name of her mother?

Looking for grave of Itzak Lustgarten buried in Berlin #germany

George
 

Hello, my relative Itzhak Lustgarten lived in Berlin after living in Israel and married a German woman.  He was born in Poland or Czechoslovakia in the 1930's and probably died in Berlin in the 1980s.  I would like to see if I could find out more information about him.  Who were his parents?  Where is he buried?   Does anyone have information about how to research this information?  Maybe I can find this information out from the Jewish cemetery in Berlin?

information on Wilhelm and Shelly Sternberg from Romanian and Canada #romania #canada

Aline Petzold
 

Hello All:
I am looking for information on my Uncle Wilhelm ( aka Villy/Willy) Sternberg and his wife Rasela ( aka Shelly/Rachel) Blauer Sternberg. I know tand that they immigrated to Montreal Canada from Romania, probably Bucharest, sometime in the 1960s. I also know that Willy was born in 1908  in Bucharesti and died in Montreal in 1991 and that Shelly died in 2000, also in Montreal. I have a wedding picture of the couple, but the people in it are unidentified. I would love to find out more about them i.e.- where Shelly was from, the date and place they were married, Shelly's birth date, the date of their arrival in Canada and where they lived before coming to Canada. Any help would be appreciated.

Susan,

The death certificate may name the person that supplied the information (possibly a son or daughter.)  If one or both of the couple left a will (probate record) that should contain the names of their children, and possibly grandchildren.

On a prominent  wall inside the Town Hall of Taormina, Sicily, is a large map depicting towns where Jews lived on the island before 1492. My husband and I saw it when we visited his ancestral towns in Sicily in 2012. You can read my story, "One Italian's Secret Jewish History," published in the Forward in 2013. I also recommend The Forgetting River, by Doreen Carvajal (a Catholic writer who discovered her Jewish roots and history in southern Italy going 'way back).

I believe that you have Jewish ancestry. Good luck!

Weil to Weinbach? #germany

sharon yampell
 

 

I am helping one of my cousins with an unrelated to me branch of her family and she had the following questions… hoping someone or more than one person can help her with this quandry…

 

If you can help her, please email her at pamdiego@...; her name is Pam Monroe.

 

She found these records on jewishgen for my Harburg, Bavaria, Germany family members. Think last name originally Weil then changed to Weinbach?

 

My 4xGGF was David (Weinbach) Weil. (b. 1751- d. 1813) Haven’t found birth record.

My 3x GGF Moses Weinbach (b. 1781- d. 1844) (from David’s first wife who probably died in child birth) marriage record as well as marriage records of all children with his second wife, lists father as David Weinbach. Weil was omitted.

David’s childrens' birth records with his second wife lists children as Isak David (Weinbach) Weil, Treinle Weinbach, Susskind (Weinbach) Weil, Gabriel Hirsch Weinbach. Father listed on all their birth records as David (Weinbach) Weil.

On each of all 5 childrens’ death records, father listed as David Weinbach. Weil was omitted from every death record. 

David’s death record lists him as David Löw (Weinbach) Weil.

All of these people eventually used adopted the surname Weinbach. Weil was omitted.

 

DNA surname search on Ancestry came up with 56 (between 20-34 cMs and highest across 8 segments) 4th-6th cousin matches with the surname Weil.

 

Thanks!
