Searching: SCHONENBERG #general

Lida Baker <lbaker@...>
 

Hello,
I have made little progress in my search for Gunter SCHONENBERG, so once
again I am turning to this list for help. Two sources inform me that
SCHONENBERG left Holland for Los Angeles on June 12, 1947: the Centraal
Bureau voor Genealogie and the Register in Amsterdam. Since I live in Los
Angeles and have been unable to locate SCHONENBERG here, I wrote to the
Gemeentearchief in Rotterdam asking if he was a passenger on the Holland
Amerika Lijn. They have no record of him in their index for the year 1947.
So perhaps someone can tell me:

-- What other shipping companies can I check to see if he was a passenger
with them?
-- How can I find out if SCHONENBERG actually landed on the shores of this
country?

Incidentally, SCHONENBERG was the son of Julius SCHONENBERG and Selma
ROSENTHAL >from Gelsenkirchen, Germany. He was born on Sept. 7, 1920. He
came to Holland >from Germany in 1938 and lived in Amsterdam. He married my
mother, Branca BLITS, in 1943.

Thanks for your help.

It is a relatively religious cemetery with many small

Shalom,

I answer through this forum as may be of interest to others with roots
from MLAWA Poland.
I wish to inform you that I have initiated a Memorial Web page for this
shtetl, and I called it: M.R.I. Mlawa Remembrance Initiative.
It is located at my web site:
http://www.geocities.com/Paris/Rue/4017/INDMLAWA.HTM

There is one page with the addresses of the Landsmenschaften of Mlawa
in Israel and in USA!

There is a section where you can send a form with inquiry or a message which
will be of interest to all Jewishgenners researching MLAWA, and a section where you
can read these messages and may be link to other researchers, and have valuable
sources of information about Jewish Mlawa.

I also wish to draw your attention to the article of Dr. Ze'ev
Yunis, located at:
http://www.geocities.com/Paris/Rue/4017/MLAYUNIS.HTM
It is unique piece of history and literature and anyone, even without any
connection to Mlawa (like myself!) is deeply impressed.
It contains tens and tens of surnames as many of the families
of Mlawa are mentioned in this article, a rare "pearl" of nostalgia and
love to the shtetl, a town in Poland where once we walked...
6 chapters out of 17 are already posted.
The re-typing of it was done by Robert Tachna and posted by myself.

As a gesture of honour to Robert Tachna and his family, I host his
Memorial and Genealogical Home Page, where most interesting sources
of information are gathered and posted.
See the Tachna section at:
http://www.geocities.com/Paris/Rue/4017/TACHNA.HTM

One chapter is also dedicated to JRI Shtetl CO-OP Mlawa.

I wish you interesting MRI session... and Moadim Le'Simcha,

Re: Where is shtetl Charev, Poland? #general

"Charev" might be Chorzew ("v" in Polish is spelled with a "w", and
native Polish "re" is spelled "rze"). Chorzew is a village about 55
miles south of Ozorkow, and about 15 miles east of Wielun. Hope this
helps!

Searching: Asher (Aszer) TEPMAN born Pinsk\Belarus #general

zadicov <zadicov@...>
 

Dear all,
My father, Bezalel Meir TEPMAN (Pinsk\Belarus, Otwock\Poland) lost his
father, Shimon (Szimon) and his brother Asher (Aszer) in 1942 in
Uzbekistan near Samarkand, on their way back after two years in Siberia.

My father never stopped looking for them all those years, unfortunately
without any luck.
We still hope that his brother, Asher (about 75 years old now), lives
somewhere.

Any information will be most appreciated.
