Watch those naturalization witnesses! (Was: Legal Separation in Brooklyn, 1929) #general

Moishe Miller <moishe.miller@totalben.com> wrote about Moses KORN, who
was probably born in Dabrowa Tarnowska c. 1872 and arrived in the USA
c.1910. He asked whether fellow Genners, <<can... suggest some new
avenues to explore, to find out if Moses had any KORN siblings, either
here or in Europe.>> Here's one:

Moses's Petition for Naturalization, which can be viewed on Ancestry,
was witnessed by David and Celia AUSTEIN. The Austeins' household on
the 1930 census includes brother-in-law Reuben "CORN," age 39. Reuben
was also living with the Austeins in 1920, when he was listed as Rubin
COHEN. Three of the Austeins' five children (Louis, Lillie/Lillian,
Mollie/Molly) have names similar to those of of Moses's children --
perhaps named for the same relatives.

For sure Moishe will want to search further to determine whether Celia
and Reuben/Rubin were Moses's sister and brother.

Schechter, circa 1917, and Dora Schehter, Eva's sister. I also have
another unidentified photo of a Shechter male that was taken in
Brooklyn, NY. If your tree has any of these names, I would be very
interested in hearing >from you.

Brichani Cemetery project #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi Bessarabian researchers,

I would like to update you on Brichani Cemetery project. I know that there
are many people researching their relatives in Brichani, Khotin district,
now in Republic of Moldova.

First good news is that Jonathan Katz is going to be Project leader,
coordinator for the project (Jonathan can start working on the project in
September).

I also got a message >from our photographer Sergey >from Moldova that he
already made about 2,000 photos of the graves in Brichani. Here are some
excerpts >from Sergey's letter:

Brichany appeared to be a very difficult cemetery. I made already 4 trips
to Brichani and the last one was for the whole week. Still I was able to
make only half of the photos.
Working is going very slow. In one day maximum can handle 1 row. Cemetery
is in the woods and very overgrown. In many places I am go along almost
crawling. Some graves are simply impossible to photograph. First you need
to go with chainsaw to cut bushes and trees. This is what I am doing, first
going with ax and machete to cut through across the raw and then take the
pictures. At the moment there are left about 15 rows to make photos. The
other problem is that the rows are very chaotic, sometimes start in the
middle, and abruptly end.
If this would be a cemetery at least as in Lipkani, I would finish it by
now.
I am taking a little rest now, was little injured in that work, but will go
back shortly.
------------------

I want to show you what conditions are in one of the cemeteries. Also soon
we will be getting photos >from Sergey and need to assemble a team of
translators >from Russian and Hebrew in order to start indexing the photos.
If interested, please send information to me and to Jonathan Katz
<jon@jonworld.com>.

Finally, that project will cost more than usual. I am asking for you to
donate as you can to Bessarabia SIG: Brichany (Moldova) Cemetery project.

To donate, please go to JewishGen.org / Donate / Bessarabia SIG / Brichany

Ashne Neisen Cemetery in Baltimore #ukraine

Shlomo Yaakov Rapaport
 

My Grandfather and his entire family came about 1903-1906 >from Nizhyn
which was close to Kiev/

Just some basic information:
The earliest known references to the location go back to 1147, when
it was briefly mentioned as Unenezh. In the times of the Polish-Lithuanian
Commonwealth, Nizhyn was granted Magdeburg rights (1625) as a self-governing
town. Nizhyn was once a major center of Hasidic Judaism and is the site of
the Ohel (tomb) of the Hasidic master, Rabbi Dovber Schneuri of Chabad-
Lubavitch. It was also the seat of a major Cossackregiment (until 1782)
and of the thriving Greek community[citation needed], which enjoyed a number
of privileges granted by Bogdan Khmelnytsky.
In the 19th century Nizhyn became an uyezd capital of the Chernigov
Governorate and the biggest city in the guberniya. In 1805, the Bezborodko 
Lyceum was established there; its graduates include Nikolai Gogol, whose
statue graces one of city streets. Nizhyn has also long been noted for
its famous cucumbers.
During World War II, Nizhyn was occupied by the German Army >from 13
September 1941 to 15 September 1943.
Jews first settled in Nizhyn at the beginning of the 19th century after
the partition of Poland. The town grew to become a center for the Habad 
Hasidim of Ukraine. By 1847, 1,299 Jews had registered as residents. In
1897, 24% of the population, or 7,361 residents, were Jewish.
A wave of pogroms severely affected the Jewish population in 1881 and 1905.
During their retreat >from the Germans in the spring of 1918, the Red Army 
carried out additional pogroms. During World War II, the region was
occupied by Germany, who exterminated all Jews in the area. Only those
who escaped survived.
In 1959, 1,400 Jews lived in Nizhyn, about 3% of the town's population.
In 2005, Nizhyn population reached 80,000. Only about 300 Jewish families
lived in the city.

My grandfather also was a member of a burial society for landsman I can
assume >from Nizhyn but I don't know.  
I am very interested in getting to talk to someone's whose relatives came
from about that period of time or has information how to research that
period of time!!

Searching for KRANZ/MOSKOVITZ/ROTTMAN #hungary

Faye Hirsty
 

Dear H-Sig,

There was a typo. My name is not Thirsty; it's Hirsty. None of my
paternal great grandparents emigrated to the USA. They lived near or
in Uzhorod (Ungvar) Hungary. I found their names of various documents
and have photos of the Rottman great grandparents.

My dad, Bernard Kranz, left Uzhorod around 1928-1929 to travel to
Havana and attend a watchmaking school where he met my mother Esther
Richman who was there on vacation. How would he have traveled from
Uzhorod to Havana in 1928 and how can I look up which ship he took
from Europe to Cuba? He spoke fluent Spanish later on when we lived
in New York.

Thank you very much.

Dear H-Sig Discussion Group,

I am researching my paternal great-grandparents. I know very little
about them, so I am sending out what I do know, in case someone out
there is familiar with the names. Julia Yetta Trammar Kranz was my
great grandmother, married to Samuel Kranz and mother of my paternal
grandfather, Vilmos Wolf Wilhelm Kranz who was born in Kozy, Poland,
Lengyelorszagy, Galicia.

Some of the documents state that grandfather Wilhelm Kranz was born in
Poland, while the death certificate states Russia. I know that
Grandfather Wilhelm spoke German, Yiddish and some Hungarian, was a
butcher and he told me he had a salami factory in Austria.

Ancestry.com states he fought in World War I as a soldier, veteran and
prisoner >from 1914-1918. I have no information about Wilhelm having
siblings, what Samuel Kranz did for a living, where Samuel and Julia
Yetta Kranz were born or where they lived. If any of these names are
familiar or part of your family tree, please contact me.

I also have little information about my other paternal great
grandmother, Hannah Moskovitz Rottman, my paternal grandmother's
mother. I do know that her husband was Jacob Rottman and that they
had six living children before WWII. There were five males: Morris,
Emil, Mozart, Miksa, Harry and Hani the only daughter (my
grandmother). I would love to find out what my great grandfather
Jacob Rottman did for a living and where Hannah Moskovitz Rottman and
Jacob Rottman were born. Mozart Rottman was a well-known artist,
Miksa had a music school. If any of these names are familiar or part
of your family tree, please contact me.

Thank you very much,

LEICHT/LEUCHT from Benke Patony, Slovakia #hungary

Margarita Lacko
 

Hello H-SIGgers,

I am planning a visit to the Dunajska Streda (Dunaszerdahely) region and
would like to know if there is a way to obtain more information about my
LEUCHT ancestors.

My grandfather Jeno LEICHT was born 1894 in Cecinska Poton (Csecseny
Patony), Slovakia. Jeno's younger siblings were born in Dunajska Streda
(Dunaszerdahely), Slovakia.

Jeno's father, Jozsef (Juda) LEUCHT, was born in 1864 in Benkova Poton
(Benke Patony), Slovakia. He was a grain merchant and might have had some
grain fields in Jelka (Joka) in 1939.

I am trying to find more information on Jozsef's siblings: Eszter (b1867 -
d1882), Janos (b1873, boot-maker?) and Zsuzsi (b1877) LEUCHT who were also
born in Benke Patony.

Are there any archives that were not filmed by the LDS in Cecinska Poton,
Benkova Poton or Horna Poton? Do you know of a Jewish cemetery in the
neighborhood? They are not buried in the Dunajska Streda cemetery.

Thanks in advance,
Margarita Lacko

I've posted a photo to ViewMate of my Mother 'driving' a car
outside the family apartment in Vienna in 1934.

I would love to know if any classic car experts can tell me
the make of this car. It wasn't a family car, they couldn't
possibly have afforded one. Maybe a rich visiting relative.

The photo can be found on ViewMate at the following link:

Re: donating family books to archives #general

Dear Genners,

I would like to add something to Helen Kenvin and Henny Moed Roth's'
comments.

I have created family books for every branch of my family over the
years. The archives I chose to send them to are: Yivo, the American
Jewish Archives in Cincinnati (contact Kevin Proffitt), the Canadian
Jewish Congress Charities Committee (contact Janice Rosen, Montreal)
and the Jewish Public Library (Montreal, contact Shannon Hodge or
Eiran Harris)). Now you've got me thinking and perhaps I will also
contact the New York Library as well.

Online, all of these (and others) will gladly tell people whom to
contact and how they want the donations sent (online as PDFs, hard
copies, etc.).

Re: Donating Family Books to Libraries, Archives #general

Harvey Finberg <hjfinberg@...>
 

I donated a copy of a family history to Leo Baeck and the Library of
Congress some years ago. Without permission, Leo Baeck digitized the
book and put it on the web. I now understand that to remove it >from
the web, I must write them and request removal. Library of Congress
donation policy indicates it may be digitized. Consider the amount of
personal information on living people before you donate a book that
may appear on the web without your express permission.
