Johanna, thank you your response. I had not thought of contacting the court where the Declaration was filed to see if they have any reference to the petition. I will try that. I unfortunately cannot find him in the 1925 census, despite extensive searching including page by page reviews of the general area in Brooklyn where he was living to see in case his name was poorly indexed. He does appear in the 1930 census, but his immigration date is incorrectly stated as being the same as his parents and siblings, who arrived about 10 years later (they just listed the whole family with the same date). I will follow-up with the court. Thank you again. Mark

Hi David,

The pairing of names as in Yechiel Michel happens a lot.  It is almost like Dov Ber, or Aryeh Leib.

Unfortunately, some people misinterpret the Michel part, that is sort of a nickname for the Yechiel, and think that the person's name was Michael.  They are NOT equivalent.

Best,

Hi Michael Gordy,

We cross paths again!

Please contact Miki Liptak (vivit@...) in Kezmarok, Slovakia.

I cannot seem to find my photos, but I seem to recall that in their museum, where they have a section for the Jews who once lived there, there were some pieces related to the Makkabi Games.   Tell him I told you to contact him!

Best,

There must be dozens if not hundreds of reasons you can't find a passenger record.  I've learned the hard way how tricky passenger records can be. 
My maternal great-grandmother Dora Zarov sailed with 2 children at the end of 1904. The handwritten entry for the family surname reads Barow. It was corrected in another hand with a Z overwriting the B. But modern transcribers recorded her name as Iora Barow, ensuring that no amount of clever searching, sound-like, etc., for either name would locate her record. I lucked out only because there was another Zarov family on the same ship and their entry is written and transcribed correctly, appearing just below Dora's. 
In a different twist, paternal great-grandfather Mendel Sztejnsapir traveled under a different name. His naturalization petition included the wrong date and name of the ship. A friend found the record by sifting through thousands of lines of manifest records looking for single  males in Mendel's age range. M. Sapier?  Bingo. 
I chalk up my many remaining brick walls, records I'm sure must be there but I haven't located, to similar glitches. Sometimes you get lucky. Sometimes it's a matter of dogged persistence.  Sometimes luck or persistence is not enough to overcome some brick walls.

Gary,

The name looks like WODISKI to me.  I searched Ancestry's NYC directory database for 1922 by using a soundex search.  I found this:

Name:  Morris Wodiska
Residence Year:  1922
Street Address:  2073 Th Av
Residence Place:  New York, New York, USA
Occupation:  Undertkrs
Publication Title:  New York, New York, City Directory, 1922

The address is different, but he could have moved, or merged his business with another.

Hope this helps,

Sherri Bobish

Rubbing and take pictures at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY #photographs

Sharon Ann Dror
 

I contacted Washington Cemetery in NY. They are not offering to do any photo requests due to COVID. They said to call back in about 3-6 months. 8:30am - 3:30pm. People can go there themselves and take pictures...
 
I am wondering if you personally know someone that would be willing to go to this cemetery and take a picture. I believe they will need to do a rubbing job to get a clearer picture as it is hard to read the letters right now.

Thanks,

Stolen from a Jewishgen reply from 10 years ago:

Genendel is a variation of the Old High German word Genana, which means
grandmother or old woman. It is an amuletic name which means it is given
for good luck, as in "may this child live for many years."

You do not mention how long your document is.  If it is only two or three pages, you can post them on ViewMate (each page as a separate post), under "German-translation", and mention in your comments that you would also like a transcription.

It would be helpful to also know what causes of death were and were they similar, when DC were issued as procedures change over time, what DC say about place of death, place of burial, etc. does one say remains were removed from jurisdiction, etc

Seeking info on Erna Christine WOLETZ DEHNE (nee Schulz) #germany #holocaust

Myra Fournier
 

Erna Christine WOLETZ DEHNE (nee SCHULZ) was born in Eigenfeld, Germany on August 25, 1931. She married my 1st cousin Wolfgang DEHNE (nee KLAPPHOLZ) in Helbra, Germany on March 22, 1985. They were divorced on January 17, 1989.  Erna resumed her prior married name WOLETZ on May 3, 1991.
Wolfgang was born in Magdeburg, Germany in March 5, 1934. He was placed in a Christian orphanage when his parents were deported to Auschwitz in 1943. He  subsequently grew up in a foster family (Gustav DEHNE) and changed his surname legally to Dehne in the 1950s. Wolfgang died in Magdeburg on August 2, 2012.
Wolfgang was previously married to Hannelore MOLLT in Magdeburg on June 17, 1967.  They divorced on June 9, 1971.
I do not know whether either former wife is still alive, or whether he and his first wife had children.
Can you help?
Thanks.

Seeking contact info for American artist Mark GROTJAHN #holocaust #general #usa

Myra Fournier
 

The celebrated American artist Mark Grotjahn is the great-grandson of Dr. Gyula Grosz who lived at Kantstrasse 12 in Magdeburg, Germany in the 1940s.  That is the same house where my cousins Alfred, Else, and Wolfgang Klappholz lived at the time.  I am trying to find as much information about the Klappholzes as I can, and thought that Mark might know some family stories that included them.  I have been unable to find Mark's email address on FB or via Google (I do not use other social media). I have emailed several museums and galleries where Mark has displayed his pieces, in the hope that they would put us in touch.  So far, no response.
Can you help?
Thanks,
