Alice GINSBERG #germany

Anne Webber <annewebber.uk@...>
 

Can anyone help with information about Alice GINSBERG?

Alice GINSBERG was the daughter of Ludwig GINSBERG, a Berlin banker who died
on 30 March 1939 in Berlin.

Ludwig GINSBERG had two daughters: Alice and Lotte. Lotte was born in Berlin
on 9 January 1920 and was deported to Riga on 19 October 1942. She perished
there on 22 October 1942.

According to German records, in 1952 Alice was living in Israel.
Documents in the London Metropolitan Archives however show that
between 1949 and 1958 Alice lived at 9 Basil Street, Knightsbridge,
and was working as a commercial artist. No information has been found
on her after this date.

Does anyone know Alice or know of her? Does anyone know anything of her life?

Can anyone suggest how to find out further information about her?
Also whether she is still living? If not, where she might be buried?

Any suggestions or help will be very gratefully received.

Anne Webber, London annewebber.uk@btinternet.com

Bukovina: The Radautz Marriages Database - Rich New Web Resource for Jewish Heritage #romania

Edgar Hauster <bconcept@...>
 

Dear friends,

Birth, death and marriage records are the primary source for genealogy and
family history researchers, providing valuable information and clues to an
ancestor's or relative's life.

Every society enlarges itself through marriages. When you are tracing your
family history, this information can offer one of the most common missing
links - a maiden name. All marriage records include the full names of the
bride and groom as well as the marriage date and other additional
information, such as the names and birthplaces of each individual's parents.
As part ONE of an ongoing project - birth & death records will come soon -
The Radautz Marriages Database is a rich new web resource for Jewish heritage
in Bukovina:

<http://czernowitz.blogspot.de/2016/12/the-radautz-vital-records-index.html>

<http://www.reisch-family.net/SevenSealsLukePHP/SevenSealsMarriages.html>

The Radautz Marriages Database contains over 3,000 properly indexed marriage
records for the period 1857 - 1929. Our thanks go to Martina Lelgemann, who
took care of the transcription, and to Bruce Reisch, who developed The
Radautz Marriages search engine and website. Lucas Reisch provided php search
engine expertise.

Whether you are looking for an ancestor or trying to find a lost classmate,
marriage records can provide a link to vital information and point you
toward important clues. The free search provided by The Radautz Marriages
Database can jumpstart your research project. Please check it out and let
us have your comments!

"berg" vs "thal" #dna

June Genis
 

I've noticed that I have DNA connection to a number of people whose
surnames begin with the same root but end in either "berg" or "thal".
For example Rosenberg vs Rosenthal. Many of these people with the
mismatched suffixes also seem to have DNA connections to each other
according to Gedmatch. Might berg and thal be different translations
of the same original Hebrew or Russian suffixes? What is their
derivation? Do they relate to status or occupation for instance?

Re: Migration patterns from Lithuania to Latvia #latvia

Feige Stern
 

Hello my fellow researchers:

I received helpful emails >from several other researchers that I thought
I would share with you regarding the reasons for moving >from Lithuania
to Latvia.

Two people suggested that the reasons were primarily economic. One of
these people noted that the territory of Latvia was outside the Pale of
Settlement, and that once it was opened to Jews, people came for
economic and trade possibilities.

Another person noted that the coming of rail transport placed a premium
on getting grain >from what is now Ukraine to the Baltic ports- Libau,
Riga, Klaipeda, etc., for export to Western Europe. Many Jews were
merchants in this trade.

Another researcher was nice enough to study the map for me, and pointed
out the proximity of Glazmanka, Latvia (the town of my Grandfather) to
Birzai, Lithuania, where the family had migrated from.

I want to thank everyone who was kind enough to take the time to share
their thoughts and research with me.

Original query:
Hello fellow Latvia researchers,
My Schenker family lived in Dankera (aka Glazmanka, Gostini) Latvia,
but I learned that they were originally >from Birzai, Lithuania. I've
noticed that a number of other researchers' families also followed that
migration pattern, and I wonder if anyone knows the reason for this?
Was there some event that caused so many >from Birzai to move to the
Courland area of Latvia? I would be interested to hear >from other
researchers if you've ever learned about this.
