You may have a problem with records for Hannover.  Not many years ago I was searching for records for 17th Century in Emden and these were not kept centrally then but the Archivist in Hannover organised a meeting in Emden for me with an Archivist the following day.  Some of the individual Archives were not related to particular towns but to what had obviously been land holdings of a monastery or nobleman or similar.  I would suggest that you try Hannover first for possible information of any specific other archive.  As an example, Emden archive published several books (in German) on subjects such as Jewish family names going back.  It may now be possible to search such information in a single source.  If so, please let me know privately.

I would appreciate suggestions from the experts in this group on how to go about finding birth records from the Kingdom of Hanover dating to 1829. I do not have the name of the town where the birth took place. Are records from that era even available? I suspect that the person in question was born closer to Bremerhaven.

To bring this up-to-date:  When visiting Linkuva few years ago, we were having difficulty locating the Jewish cemetery.  When we asked locals for assistance, we were repeated told that "there are no Jews here", "there is no Jewish cemetery" (with much derision on the word Jewish); and "there never were any Jews here".

I'm having the same problem. When I contacted JG support I was told the problem is arising from my end, but I've tried using two different computers with two different operating system's and two different browsers so I don't know what is really going on.

Re: Question on Ron Day Vo photograph #photographs

I don't think she has a brace.  It looks like a rolled up newspaper to me.

Here's a guide to the pronunciation (from India where the name is popular):


There seem to have been several Ron.Day.Voo cafes, bars, hotels and patisseries - including a nice-looking hotel, restaurant and café in present-day Udaipur in India and another in Australia (plus some Ron.D.Voos and Ron Da Voos).  This place in Camden New Jersey appears to fit the timing of the picture although I haven't found any pictures of the building only these ads.  60 cents looks pricey for dinner and floor show.

       

and this one in Scranton burned down 65 years ago

 
and here's one from Cleveland



I think a search would find several more.  Could any of those locations be useful?

Re: Question on Ron Day Vo photograph #photographs

It's presumably a pun on the word Rendezvous -there are two Os not one.. The girl is leaning on a car bonnet so what looks like a brace might be the vehicle's mascot. Perhaps a classic car enthusiast could identify the make. So maybe the place is a garage or meeting place for racing car fans. 1920-30 I guess.

Liba KONIGSBUCH GOTTFIERD From Oberhaid in the Czech Republic #usa #galicia #austria-czech

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners, 

Just discovered on Ancestry an entry from SSDI about Liba KONIGSBUCH GOTTFRIED who was born in 1914 in Oberhaid, Czech Republic. She died on Jul 1st 1998 and was also known as Libby Gottfried. Her father was Aaron and mother was Dobra Feilzut( all this is from Ancestry).
My maternal family is KOENIGSBUCH, a very rare surname all of whose bearers hail  from Brzesko, Galicia. Aron was quite a common name in the family and I am aware of one branch which
resided until 1940 in Michalovce, Slovakia. Oberhaid is totally new for me and I find a difficulty in tracing Liba/Libby.
Any help will be highly appreciated.

Johanna,

Yes, it looks like you found the marriage record for my aunt's first marriage.  All the name seem correct.  Now that I have a #1 husband's name---Edward McMahon, all I have to find out when he died and if there is an online death cert or notice.

Thanks.

Killings in Linkuva #holocaust #lithuania

lydgateaction@...
 

Today, 23 July 2021 is the 80th anniversary of the day about 700 older men, women and children from the village on Linkuva were taken to the forest and shot/killed - including many members of our Blumzon family. I won't list their names here. 

The killings ended at about 1pm so by now they would all have been eliminated. As in most other Lithuanian villages the killers were not Germans but Lithuanians - in this case the brothers Jonais and Popilais Stumbris; and the brothers Tarashka, Jasaivitzios and others, and the three sons of the local chemist Jasukaitis (Sintauris, Januskais, and Simonatas).

Linkuva shtetl website is here : www.linkuva.com (now also eliminated from the list of links on jewishgen.org)

You can listen to and read the transcript of an interview with an elderly Lithuanian woman describing the killings here: http://www.linkuva.com/audio.htm

May they rest in peace

I am trying to upload a small GEDCOM file that includes new discoveries in my family and am unable to do so.

 

Every time I got to the FTJP page https://www.jewishgen.org/gedcom/ and click on the “I ACCEPT and wish to UPLOAD my Gedcom” I get redirected back to the “Login to JewishGen” page.

 

I successfully change my password to match the new requirements and have no trouble logging on.

 

Am I  doing something wrong?

 

Is this a temporary problem or is this function no longer available?

You have to conduct a search at https://collections.arolsen-archives.org/en/archive/

If you don't find, they have many more records there not yet uploaded to the site so you can always ask them to send you what you need.

Good luck

Re: Why St. Louis? #usa

mkarina@...
 

I've enjoyed all the responses about Jewish history in St. Louis. One other prominent immigrant who got his start in St. Louis was Joseph Pulitzer.

Taking this discussion a century forward, my family immigrated to St. Louis from Kiev in 1979. We had no family in the United States and were randomly assigned to this unknown city in the middle of the country. The Jewish community did a fantastic job of resettling the refugees (although I really didn't enjoy the label New Americans). We were met at the airport and taken to a fully furnished apartment -- new furniture, linens, kitchen utensils. In addition to receiving financial assistance, the community provided ESL classes and employment services. Families who wanted to send their children to the private Jewish day school could do so free of charge. In addition, each family was assigned a volunteer sponsor family to help get further acculturated with holiday celebrations and outings. I grew up and lived in University City, where historic Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform congregations occupied the same block.

Re: Need help to get a transcription off a death record for Max Koenig #usa #records

Peter Cohen
 

There is a very limited list of direct descendants that New York City considers eligible to receive copies of death certificates after 1948. Despite the fact that they are supposed to be released after 70 years, NYC still will not release the details of 1949-1951 records (although Reclaim the Records forced them to release indexes.)

Max Koenig is buried at Riverside Cemetery in Saddle Brook, New Jersey.  Some cemeteries do a better job than others of recording the information that was on the death certificate. And some are more cooperative than others in giving out the information.  Contact Riverside Cemetery and see if they can / will help you. 201-843-7600
