Re: Rabbi Aharon WEINSTEIN from Rosulno #rabbinic #galicia

Yehuda Horovitz
 

I assume you are missing some info.
Are you sure it is ROSULNO ? actualy called ROSILNA! 
Is the name AHARON ?
I suggest it is the Rabbi of the close by Shtetel of Solotvyn Rabbi [Hirsh Leib] Zvi Arye Weinstein 
I found many responses from him in the rabbinic literature of the middle the 19th century

Re: Questions about Document in Germany #germany

David and Eva both cite the difficulties with the new reply format.  More than ¾ of the responses are useless, because one has no idea to what they refer  This is my work around:  

On a MAC, I have the option of 'Reply To Sender' OR 'ReplyTo All' in the tool bar.  I use that instead of the options in the email.  WHY?  Because that way the message to which I am responding is included in my email.  I DELETE those parts of the email that do not apply, as well as everything below the line.    

Eva's solution might??  work for those who get the Digest.  It would not work for those who get individual messages.  

PROGRAMMING THE RESPONSE OPTION TO INCLUDE THE MESSAGE BEING RESPONDED TO SEEMS A SIMPLE SOLUTION.

Hi,

Do you happen to know where they came from before Sweden?  I have some Rosenberg/Gross people that came from Poland
and cannot find their line.

Thanks.

Re: Tacing Jacob Bloom immigrated from Lithuania in 1905 #lithuania

Hint:   Google is a good friend.  Use it….

Simply searching Google for:   "ports of entry in 1905”   divulges that there were

Five Major Ports of Arrival

   The five major U.S. arrival ports for immigration in the 19th and 20th Centuries were:
   New York, Boston, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New Orleans. New York was by far 
           the most commonly used port. 

Reading further we learn that there were also:
  • Charleston
  • Galveston
  • Key West
  • New Bedford
  • Passamaquoddy
  • Portland (Maine)
  • Providence
  • San Francisco
  • Seattle,
  • and others.

Minor correction.  On the 1940 census WD is used for widowed not just W.  The top of the column shows the options available.  Of course the individual enumerator may not always follow directions.

Re: Who buried the deceased after Liberation in the Netherlands #holocaust

Molly Staub
 

Try the Margraten Cemetery near Maastricht, the Netherlands, where G I s were buried. The  Dutch were so grateful to have been liberated by Americans, that each gravestone has been adopted by a Dutch family. They visit annually and care for the site. When I mentioned that there were so few Stars of David among the crosses, I was told the Jewish families had their relatives exhumed and reburied in consecrated ground. However, their names are honored in the on-site memorial.

I do not know the proportion of readers who get messages as a digest.   I prefer individual messages so that I can easily discard or relocate the individual ones.

I also copy and paste as "quoted " the message to which I am reacting, so that the reader can see what I am writing about

It is possible that the document was prepared for some unpleasant purpose. However, in that case I'm surprised that it still exists, and wasn't destroyed by its owner to avoid the post-war Nazi hunt. It's more likely that the list was made for an interested genealogist.
Genealogy was a popular pastime for middle-class men in the 1930s., and I have a similar document sent to my great-uncle, who was very interested in the history of the family. My father inherited this list, together with his uncle's hobby and used the information he'd collected to good effect to find relatives abroad to help with our emigration. In fact my very elderly grandmother's visa to England was from along-lost nephew on her family tree.

Hi, Isabel.
I am looking for a Homeowners' List for Warsaw in 1915/1914/1913. Was there a Census at that time? I need to know where Adolf Tarnower was living in Warsaw. Was it 5 Orla str.?
Many thanks

Re: help with one or two handwritten characters on us census #general

The enumerator first wrote M for married, then struck it and wrote WD for widow.  Look at the name 2 above where exactly the same thing happened.  The W is easier to see on that one but provides an example.  The W on Epstein is partly hidden by the earlier M

Another subject in which I am no expert, but to close off two false trails right here: the shield is clearly the US flag, so the UK does not come into it; and there is no feather, that is a leaf that the photographer might have removed but did not.

Hi All
Please can someone out there translate these:
1. I think a form filled out for a cousin sent on Kindertransport
2 .a letter written by the kinder transport's parents while she was in the UK and the parents still near Berlin
 
Also looking for any reference in the letter to Hedwig.

Re: Daughter of Saul Ben Judah (Sir Saul Wahl) Wahl Katzenellenbogen #names

From these various helpful responses the situation is now clear: your original question conflates three (at least) persons into one: 1) https://www.geni.com/people/Aaron-Ashkenazi-Munk/6000000002764780073?through=4431755599050023704, spouse of https://www.geni.com/people/Nechama-Ashkenazi-Teomim/6000000001037943249 2) https://www.geni.com/people/R-Moses-Katz-A-B-D-and-head-of-the-Klaus-Rabbinical-Academy/3949396446480076730, spouse of https://www.geni.com/people/Nessale-Nissla-Katz/6000000001281846714, and 3) https://www.geni.com/people/Rabbi-Moshe-Katz-Rappaport-Ashkenazi-Dayan-Frankfurt/6000000003925218685, spouse of https://www.geni.com/people/Gella-Katz-Rappaport-Ashkenazi/6000000011187168435. The Rappaport surname appears to me to be misplaced for either 3a or b, above. The only evidence I see of a Rappaport connection for either is that the couple has a 2x ggd who married a Rappaport (https://www.geni.com/people/Ella-Rapaport/6000000002764979857). This would be an instance of reverse surnaming by marriage, which is confusing.

I hope all of this helps unravel this knot.

Dear Yaron Wolfsthal!
Schleichera  street is now called Bazarna street. It is comparatively long, was situated closely to the Old Jewish cemetery. Initially it was included into the ghetto area but later the ghetto area was diminished.

And Devorah seems to be the modern Hebrew use of the name, in Israel and in the U.S.  I don’t know if it would have been spelled that way in the  19th century.

Quite to the contrary, Eva.  They look like a happy lot, socializing, a game of cards, sewing, a flutist providing a little music, clean, spacious, well-lit, peaceful.  What more could these immigrants want?

Image is quite blurry. However, at his age and how it looks, probably not S for Single. So that leaves M for Married or W for Widowed. So, was he a Widower?
