Re: Jews in the Austrian Army #general

Debbie Raff <seraff@...>
 

I would LOVE to figure out how to use this microfilm. I was at the
Genealogical Library in Salt Lake City last Spring. I tried to figure it
out, but it doesn't seem to be indexed in a manner where it was of use.

The usually helpful librarians were at a total loss themselves,as to how to
proceed. So, if someone out there has had success, PLEASE let us all know.

Searching: RASSEKH/RASEKH & BRIN/BRINN/BRAM/BRUM #general

M. Kearns <mkearns@...>
 

Does anyone have info on the Persian Jewish surname of RASSEKH/RASEKH? I
know I asked this before, but I forgot. The father side had converted to
Baha'i faith, and I understand that these Baha'i RASSEKHs have a common
Jewish ancestor/ ancestors. Our family's last residence in Iran was in
Tehran, but they originaly came >from the south (Shiraz and around there).

Also, I am looking for info on a Madeleine BRIN (BRINN/BRAM/BRUM?) who I
know lived in San Diego at one time. We are unsure of her real surname.
Her adoption occured at a later point in life (adolescence, or just
before). She apparently had some connection to the Starlight theatre in
San Diego. She came over >from FrAnce, though may have originated
somewhere else. We dont know what happened to her other family. She had
5 children by Alfonso TESSADA (origins unknow, family left Spain and
Portugal by 1500)-Regina, Benyamin, Ruven (Rudy), Frank, and Debora (died
young). These children were not born in the U.S.

LDS information needed #general

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

This may sound a stupid question but please bear with me :)

In Sao Paulo (Brazil) the FHC is very modest. It only has one computer and
3 microfilm readers. A lady (sister) takes care of searching the CDs for
cities and family names. It is a cumbersome and time consuming method.
Therefor, this peculiar situation justifies my question:

Is it possible to purchase the CDs for the International Genealogical Index
and the Family History Library Catalog? If the answer is positive, where
can I buy them? I visited the LDS site but nowhere could I find such
information.

Many thanks in advance. Please answer in private.

Re: Looking to Verify Hebrew Name #general

Stan Goodman <sheol@...>
 

My guess is that what she heard as "Mashi" was "Masha", which
is the way a Russian speaker would generate a pet- or nick-name
for "Miryam".

Searching for SCHONENBERG #general

Lida Baker <lbaker@...>
 

Hi, I am new to this list and find the postings fascinating. I am looking
for a man named Gunter SCHONENBERG who was born in Gelsenkirchen, Germany,
on Sept. 7 1920. During the War he worked in Amsterdam. I have information
from Holland that he left for Los Angeles on June 12, 1946. This is what I
don't know:
1. the name of the ship
2. the port of arrival
3. whether he actually arrived here
4. whether he changed his name upon arrival.

I have telephoned every SCHONENBERG in the U.S. that I could find, but none
of them were Jewish. I have also searched all over Holland and Israel - no
luck. Can anyone help me?

Thank you!

Searching: TABISZ (TABISH) #general

S & R Chernoff <s.r.chernoff@...>
 

Hello

I am trying to establish contact with my grandfather's brother's family.

My grandfather, Michal TABISZ was born in 1875 in Kluwince, District of
Husiatyn (in what is now Ukraine). He had only 1 sibling, a brother
named Josef.

Grandfather came to Canada in 1903 and died in 1917. Contact with his
family overseas stopped. Oral family history has it that Michal's and
Josef's father died quite young and their mother was close to 100 when
she died just before WWII. It appears that she never remarried.

Anyone with any information on the family of Josef TABISZ please contact
me directly at s.r.chernoff@...

Thank you.

David, I really can't offer any specialty but Thank You for pushing for
Belorus info at the
next seminar. Even if its merely an update on the present political climate
(as Miriam Weiner did) would help. Hopefully, someone will come forth with
more.

Re: Searching YASHINEFSKY, ZALMANOV from Rogachev #belarus

Peter B. Golden <pgolden@...>
 

I think that I may be able to provide a possible link for the
Zalmanov/Zelmanov line in Rogachov. The Sosins of Rogachov (my paternal
grandmother's family) were related to or very close friends (often little
distinction was made) with the Zelmanovs of that same town. The Zelmanovs
after coming to the US settled in the San Francisco-Oakland region. One of
their daughters, Ethel Zelman (who would be in her mid- to late 80's now)
was a good friend of my father and visited us whenever she came to NY. She
was married to Maurie (Morrie ?) Bunow and they had a son Barry (who would
be in his mid to late 50's now). Unfortunately, I have not had contact with
them in over 30 years and cannot provide addresses.
