I believe you are referring to the main New York Public Library
and the Jewish Room on the first floor. Remember the library
is no longer open on Mondays.

Looking for REINHOLD #general

bbaum
 

This is the most intriguing and, so far, unsuccessful search I've
ever made. For years I have been trying to contact Heinrich (Yechiel)
REINHOLD. He was a veteran of the Jewish Brigade and the Palestine
Regiment (Jewish Battalion), relocated to England >from Israel in the
early 1940s, worked for British intelligence and then completely changed
his name. After the name change the trail ran cold. However, recently I
came across a treasure trove of letters he received >from friends during
the period of the British Mandate.
I'm hoping to communicate privately with some of these people and
hopefully get some fresh leads. Some details of the person I'm looking
for:
Heinrich Reinhold (rank was sergeant and serial number 38454; D
company and A Company, 3rd Battalion, Jewish Brigade; ). Lived in Haifa
and Jerusalem during 1940s.

Names of friends he corresponded with during 1940s:
David, Rosa and Berta SCHACHTER - Havana,Cuba
Paul (Pinchas), Seymour and Shirley GOODMAN (GUTTMAN) -
Chicago, Ill
Fridle SILBERMAN - New York City
Pepi HEINEMAN - Lerum, Sweden
Hadassa Dora STERN - >from Italy, Israel, and Geneva
Anna STRADLA - Italy (??)
Daisy MAYO - Den Hagg, the Netherlands
Frida and Moric GUTTMAN - Vyrava Okres-Medzlaborce, Checkoslovakia
Max WEISEN - Paris, France
Batia GURIATCHIKOV - unknown location
Dickey FLEURBAAY - Aat Landwher, Leiden, the Netherlands.
Yitzchak (Arnost ) BLOCK - unknown location
Elly van DANTZIG - Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Yitzchak FINKLESTEIN - Haifa, Israel
Chava LEVIN - Tel-Aviv, Israel
Chana VELL - Kfar Yehoshua, Israel

Would appreciate hearing >from any of the people above or anyone else
who might be able to assist me in my search.
Please respond privately to Evaberlin@...
Thank you all.

LEFKOWITZ-WEISS genealogy #general

Omri Arnon <Omri@...>
 

Three years ago There was some debate in the forum regarding the
translation of the history of a prominent Hungarian LEFKOWITZ-WEISS family
which was found by Louis Schonfeld. The book by Chaim Yitzchok Lefkowitz
included details about three hundred and eighteen Hungarian families. Can
anyone help me in finding this book or it's translation? I am especially
interested in details about the REINITZ family which were mentioned there.

Thank you,

I am familiar with Morton Allan Directory of European Passenger Ships
Arrivals. But I need to know about ships >from Argentina to New York.
The timeframe of my interest is 1926-1928. Is there a published reference
or if not, where could I look for this information?

Hello,
I found an interesting entry in Peter Hidas'"Jewish Who's Who in (Buda)Pest. There is a Wolf ENGEL, peddler, born in Boscovitz, in Pest since 1821. Where is Boscovitz? I see some possibilities in the Czech Republic, but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

i checked a few online machine translation services and none would translate
"pfeifenschlager" into english or "pipefitter" into german. but they were
consistent in translating "pfeifen" as "whistle", and "pipes" as something
else. and i noticed the similarity to the word "schlager" which we use in
hungarian as slang for an old song, or tune.

so i wonder if it might be "organ tuner" in german?
