I also have a ancestor buried in Vienna, 1090, Fangoheilanstalt; Section: T4 Group: 6, Row :7, Grave 24.   Is there anyone know that takes care of that cemetery?

Thank you.

Re: Post cards from pre-WWI Russia #russia #general

m_tobiasiewicz@...
 

I have post cards from Poland around 1900 with pictures of either family and friends on front. It was cheaper then (as it is now) to send a post card than it was to send a letter. So they  sent the photo a a post card. In my case, the people are too far away to make out details on their faces. I assume my grandparents knew who they were.

Where is Lakma, Hungary? #hungary

Dan Rottenberg
 

I'm trying to track the movements of my Hungarian maternal ancestors, mostly named Klein, Spielberger, and Burger. They appear to have lived in villages around Kosice (then Kassa) in the early 19th Century before migrating southward over several decades to Miskolc and from there to America in the 1870s. On an 1882 birth certificate in New York, my great-grandparents Herman and Julia Klein listed their birthplaces, respectively, as "Michallitz" and "Lakma, Ungaren" (that is, Hungary). I presume Michallitz is a misspelling of Miskolc. But where is Lakma? I've never found any town by that name in any database— not in JewishGen, Google, or even Jordan Auslander's comprehensive Genealogical Gazetteer of the Kingdom of Hungary. I presume Lakma is a misspelling of some other town name, presumably near Miskolc. But what town might it be? I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.

Re: Where candlesticks are from #general

Sniderlh
 

I, too, was enthralled by Ann Rabinowitz's candlestick article.  I would like to know how to contact her for more information, but haven't figured out how to "find" her on JewishGen.  Any ideas; Ann, are you reading any of this?!

My cousin and I, come to find out, each inherited a pair of silver candlesticks. Our grandfathers were brothers. I was struck by how similar they are, and wondered if, perhaps, they were wedding gifts to each son/wife. The father of my cousin's and my grandfather was born in Brody, Poland (now Ukraine), as was my cousin's grandfather. My grandfather was born in, Czernowitz ( now Chernivitsi, Ukraine).  Ultimately, both families ended up in Vienna for many years, before death (for some) in the Holocaust, and life in new lands, for others.

Here are the candlesticks (we each have a pair); there are no markings I can find, either on the bottom, or elsewhere. Look familiar to anyone? They are very light weight --- hollow, but quite similar in design.

What an incredible find, and amazing story. To see this bible reunited with the current generation of family makes you believe in fate/good karma/a huge stroke of luck.  It's uplifting to hear all the steps so many people went through to make this happen.

Thank you for sharing this.

Julius Muller at jmuller@... was very helpful to me several years ago in locating graves of my ancestors in the Zentalfriedhof cemetery and other Vienna records about them. I haven’t been in touch with him for several years, but perhaps he is still doing this research.

Trying to research Gurevitch/Gurevicz (Horowitz in the US) family from Liozna, Russia (now Belarus.) I believe there were three brothers and two sisters. I have some information on the three brothers' arrival in the US, but need help finding out about the two sisters who never emigrated. Thanks!

Re: Litvak SIG Discussion Group #lithuania

JoAnne Goldberg
 

I still receive the litvak SIG emails, but "daily digest" might be the
problem -- there are so few emails that it would take months to compile
a digest's worth, and the system may not be able to handle that. I've
observed a similar situation with other groups that I subscribe to --
when the posts are rare, I just don't get a digest, ever.

Re: Russian Passports #russia

June Genis
 

Several people have now mentioned that they have copies of Russian Empire passports but no one has said anything about how they might have been acquired. Surely even if they were just simple pieces of paper with lots of stamps on them, someone was in charge of that stamping and presumable had to keep records of their use. Why then do their not seem to be any records of who these people were and what you had to do to get those pieces of paper?

Re: Post cards from pre-WWI Russia #russia #general

Ava (Sherlock) Cohn
 

These are real photo postcards and would need to be first identified and dated to tell if they are in fact pre-WW1 cards and from Russia.  Without seeing the actual fronts and backs of the cards it isn't possible to give a definite answer. However, most postcards were printed in Germany prior to 1915. Every country had its own postal regulations for the design of their cards but the presence of English written letters on the cards isn't necessarily an indication of where the card was produced. Imperial Russia belonged to the Universal Postcard Union and would have had more than one country's name printed on the card. But, even then, there were independent producers that did not have markings on the cards. You can see that this is a complicated question and more information is needed to properly answer it.

Litvak SIG Discussion Group #lithuania

Susan Goldsmith
 

To clarify my question about the existence of the Litvak SIG discussion group, I have not been receiving any postings to the Discussion Group for several years even though I am subscribed to a Daily Digest. I have tried unsubscribing and then resubscribing, but nothing seems to remedy the situation.

It would also be helpful to know what other SIG Discussion groups are still in existence, for example, Belarus, Gesher Galicia, JRI Poland, UK, Latin America, Romania, South Africa.

Thank you,
Susan Goldsmith

Is it possible that they were immigrant children and the photos were taken in NY or Chicago in a studio that was set up to look like the old country?

Murder in Medved (Novgorod Gub.) in 1910 #russia

joel.blankett@...
 

I have come across a document in the Veliky Novgorod archives indicating that a relative of mine, a Jewish meat merchant living in the town of Medved, in the Novgorod Guberniya, was robbed and murdered by local peasants on his way back home from a business trip to St.Petersburg, in November 1910.
I'm hoping a local (Novgorod) newspaper might have carried a mention of this incident. I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to search.

Re: Find records of Wiznitz town #ukraine #records #austria-czech #romania

Records for Wiznitz from 1918 to 1930 are on the Family Search website.  As I recall they are not indexed so it helps to have an idea about dates.

Hope this helps.
