British Mandate Palestine Visas #unitedkingdom

Ann Rabinowitz
 

My great aunt Chaya Pesia Choritz (maiden name Bdil or Bedil) arrived alone
in British Mandate Palestine as a tourist >from Cape Town, South Africa, on
the ship "Felicia" on August 6, 1939. Later, she passed away in a Jerusalem
hospital circa 1941-1943.

It is assumed that she had a South African passport and I would like to
know where her visa and other immigration paperwork would have been obtained
and later stored, so that I could get a copy.

Any assistance on this matter would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you,

Any Family Genealogy for Stanislaw Rozycki (the Warsaw Ghetto Diaries)?? #warsaw #poland

kenjdgen@...
 

To Members:

A rather famous diarist >from the Warssaw Ghetto and contributor to the
Ringlebaum Archives was Stanislaw Rozycki - a native of Warsaw. Quite
a bit is known about his writings but not his family connections
(courtesy of the writings of Samuel D. Kassow:
Ref: "Who Will Write Our History" and Ulrich Keller's "The Warsaw
Ghetto in Photographs: 206 Views Made in 1941 see pg 129, Appendix: A
Warsaw Ghetto Memoir by S. Rozycki).

My query:
Has anyone done any research on this Stanislaw Rozycki's family
genealogy?? We know he was married but left Warsaw, his wife, his
friends and colleagues and went to Lwow in 1939. He returned in 1941
upon which he became a resident of the Ghetto=E2=80=94writing about life an=
d
death in the Ghetto.

I am in contact with a person today who may be a distant family member.

need help locating records for Moscow #belarus

June Genis
 

Although my Okun family appears to be primarily >from Belarus, DNA
results have found a Miron Zeide whom FTDNA calls a second cousin. He
said that his grandmother, Esther Okun Kanfel, was >from Moscow. She
died about 1938 or 1939. Her father was Gamshey Okun.

I understand why there is no SIG for Russia but am hoping that someone
can steer me to online sources of records for Moscow. I can not
afford a researcher at this time. Any other suggestions for
researching this branch of Okuns would be greatly appreciated. So far
I have not gotten any hits on the usual US sources.

Issue 122 of Genealo-J is published #sephardic

Georges Graner
 

Genealo-J, publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of France,
Issue 122, Summer 2015 has just been published.

Based on family stories related to his great-grandfather Sigismund
Ettinghausen (1838-1918), a gem dealer in Paris, Pierre-Andre Meyer
reconstructs his lineage. Among his offspring he finds personalities as
different as Walter Eytan, a former Israeli ambassador in France, or the
sulfurous writer Maurice Sachs both "born" Ettinghausen. Three Jewish
householders in Frankfurt neighboring town of Hoechst initially adopted
the surname "Ettinghausen" in 1822. These protected Jews (Schutzjuden)
of the Dukes of Nassau before Hoechst was united to Prussia in 1866
fostered three family branches which gradually separated; one chose to
emigrate to Paris where it became part of the Jewish secularized
bourgeoisie, the other two remaining in Germany in a then more open society.
The advent of Nazism led to the extermination of the German
Ettinghausens though some of them managed to emigrate to the United
States. There are no longer any Ettinghausens in Hoechst today but an
Ettinghausen-Platz inaugurated in 2008 recalls the family.

Yolla Polity deals with the Jews of Sidon (Saida) through the Jewish
Community council records (1919-1975) which were kept by her father.
The recently classified and digitized Youssef Melhem Politi collection
of the Jewish council archives of Sidon, Lebanon, provides extensive
information about the history and the internal organization of this
poorly documented and now vanished community. The records are available
for consultation at the Library of the Alliance Israelite Universelle
(AIU) in Paris - supplementing the Alliance own archives relating to
their school in Sidon. They are also available at the Bar Ilan
University in Tel Aviv and in the Judaica Division of Harvard
University. In addition to the council meetings rolls, correspondence
and ownership titles, the Youssef Melhem Politi collection includes
many lists of voters, stamps and signatures. These may provide
descendants of Sidon Jews with important genealogical data about their
families.

Albert Camus was awarded the 1957 Nobel Prize for Literature. Francoise
Darmon discovered that Camus' wife Francine Faure had a Jewish
grandmother named Clara Touboul. In 1887 at Oran Clara married Charles
Alfred Albert, a young civil servant born mainland France near Nantes.
Researching the writer's wife's Jewish ancestry led us among the great
Jewish families of Oran and Algiers and their matrimonial relations with
non-Jewish families and with Jewish people who came >from Lorraine at the
beginning of the French conquest of Algeria.

Pamela Weisberger is the active manager of Gesher Galicia, a non-profit
group helping those who look for their Jewish roots in Galicia, a former
province of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. She presents all the
information available and especially the new website www.GesherGalicia.org.

A seal showing a wolf surrounded with the Hebrew name Benjamin son of
Abraham was recently found near Uzes in the South of France. Eliane Roos
Schuhl analyzes this seal which was probably made in the 13th or 14th
century.

Manus Katzenstein in Ungendenken #germany

Joseph Fibel
 

When I met Albert Phiebig, the original Jewish Genealogical researcher
(Berlin-1930's) he told me that
if I were searching for my family out of Altenlotheim, I would have
to get a copy of Paul Arnsberg's two
volume book, Die Juedischen Gemeinden in Hessen, which I did.

Subsequently, I found that my mother's great grandfather was
Mannes/Manus Katzenstein. Under the community
of Frankenau, the book states that Manus Katzensteiin was born in
Ungedanken in 1788. There is no comparable
listing under Ungedanken. Each volume has a separate surname index.

The small community of Ungedanken was merged into the larger city of
Fritzlar. Both of these places have internet
sites. I have posted messages on both sites several times asking if
there were any 1788 records where Manus birth
record might be shown and/or the Archiv (Archive) where it might be
listed. There has been no response.

Can anyone here direct me to the internet address of an archive which
might have such information?

Thank you very much in advance.

Joe Fibel, New Rochelle, NY jfibel@joefibel.com
P.S.: Gersig readers have been extremely helpful in the past.

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for
several years. I consider myself to be intermediate doing German Jewish
Genealogy research. I have visited the region and many of the towns and
cemetaries.

I live in Berkeley California and also have a home in LA. My native language
is English and I have some Hebrew and French.
I consider myself advanced in using a computer and my experience with
using the internet is extensive.

I have an interest in genealogy research using DNA and have entered
my autosomal results in Ancestry, FamilyTreeDNA and Gedmatch.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of many members of
my family including some of my great great great grandparents.

My primary research goals now are to find out more about my family
history going back in time and to discover unknown cousins and family
branches.

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 250730
The family names and ancestral towns that I have entered in the JGFF
(JewishGen Family Finder) include the following. These are mostly
rural villages or small towns. In most cases I know family names from
the past and place names but don't have any other identifying
information.
