Finding "Affidavit of Support" by Herman S. FISCHLER #poland

Selma Sheridan
 

Dear fellow researchers,
My cousin told me that her parents, Berl and Lina BEUTEL (or BEITEL) LEMLER
of Vienna, received an "Affidavit of Support" >from a cousin of Lina's
mother, around 1938. This cousin, Herman S. FISCHLER (not "FISCHER"), was
married and a furrier in Manhattan - that is all she knew about him. The
LEMLERs could not get out in time, and died in camps. Online, I found
Herman S. FISCHLER, a Manhattan furrier. The only way I know to link him
with my family is via this "Affidavit of Support". I have not found
FISCHLER genealogy records online, or a link to historical Affidavits.

Any help would be sincerely appreciated. Many thanks!

The December issue of the "Galitzianer" #austria-czech

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the release of the December 2018
issue of our quarterly research journal, the "Galitzianer."

In this issue, we ponder a Galician murder mystery, meet the first
woman to graduate as a doctor >from Lwow University, learn how Gesher
Galicia is working to uncover the names of unknown Holocaust victims,
and witness how personal genealogical research can grow into something
much bigger, in this case, a book about Jews in the Galician oil
industry. Through three different articles, we also become well
acquainted with the Galician town of Nadworna (now, Nadvirna,
Ukraine), >from its nineteenth-century geography to its WWII atrocities
to its modern-day contradictions. Finally, we experience the struggles
of two families during the Holocaust, with one story being told
through a series of archival postcards.

Here is the list of articles in this issue:

-- Research Corner: A Galician Murder Mystery and an
Update on Gesher Galicia's Research Projects by Tony Kahane
-- Lwow University Records by Andrew Zalewski
-- History through Genealogy by Valerie Schatzker
-- The Stanislawow Holocaust Project by Michal Majewski
-- In My Grandfather's Words by Christina Craig
-- Map Corner: Nadworna 1847 Field Sketch by Jay Osborn
-- Courage and Fortitude by Lily Winiger Bink
-- A Journey to Nadworna by Steven S. Turner

The "Galitzianer" is a membership benefit of Gesher Galicia, though
everyone is invited to submit articles on Galicia-related themes. For
details on submitting an article, go to
https://www.geshergalicia.org/the-galitzianer/#submissions.

Austro-Hungarian army records #austria-czech

rickglaser@...
 

I sent away to the Austrian Kriegsarchiv for the military records of my great great grandfather,
Wilhelm Stein. I received back his records for the year 1848 to 1856. He served for 8 years.

The record seems to say that he was discharged in 1856.

However, in the record of his marriage in 1857, it says that he received regimental approval,
and in the birth records of his children, he is identified as a soldier in a certain regiment.

Is it possible that he re-enlisted?

What was typical of Jews vis-a-vis the army in those days?
