Missing Names on Manifests #general

Joseph Fibel <jfibel@...>
 

A recent posting by a genner who obviously had done a lot of work looking
for manifest records points out something very important to researchers.

While the Ellis Island Data Base is a wonderful tool it gives us an extract
of the actual record.

If records are available, it is important to look at the complete record.
Note that in a few seconds a different researcher found a piece of vital
information that gave the original poster his answer. Now we can look
elsewhere for information.

Many families came to the U S separately. In most cases (but certainly not
always) the husband or father came first and after earning enough to cover
the cost of tickets for the rest of the family, sent for the balance of the
family.

We have another important tool for searching for our relatives and this is
City Directories. These directories were commercial enterprises prior to
telephone books. The companies printing the directories sent out
enumerators that covered every building in the city going >from house to
house and apartment to apartment. (also institutions) They interviewed the
person who opened the door who answered questions as to who were residents
there. The information included the head of the household, wife's name,
names of children, where the people worked, and any additional residents
such as borders. The directories are arranged by surnames alphabetically so
that they are easy to use. In big cities they were issued annually. In some
cities only the Head of Household is listed. The New York City Public
Library at 42nd. St. has a large collection, not only of NY and other NYC
counties, but also of other locations in the U S. Most of these C.D.'s are
on microfilm rolls. By going backward and forward through the rolls by
year, we can determine the length of our relatives stay in one residence.
The C. D. publishing companies made money by selling advertising as well as
selling the directories.

Most local community libraries have C.D.'s for their own communities. In
addition, The Family History Libraries (FHL's) of the Mormons, (Church of
Latter Day Saints of Jesus Christ) are wonderful tools for us because they
have full access to their enormous library of micro films in Salt Lake City.
For a modest fee, they will bring in the microfilm rolls you order and you
will get a phone call advising when they come in. Find you FHL in your
phone book, but call before you go because they are manned by volunteers and
may not be open every hour of every day.

Other large city libraries and college and universities also have C. D.
collections

Every researcher should at some time in his/her research should go through
C.D.' for their families. It is one of our basic tools.

I would hope that Irwin would find about his grandmother and perhaps also
about some other relative with whom she was staying.

In searching for family of my great-grandmother Feiga (nee FEINBERG)
LANDSMAN >from Lithuania,
I've uncovered a few more possible clues.

1. She was known as Goldie (not Feiga) to her generation (name on stone
was Golda Feiga bat Eliyahu)
2. A old picture album with some of her photos refers to someone as her "aunt
ROSENBLATT", but no one alive seems to remember any Rosenblatt relatives.

If any of this sounds familiar, please contact me privately at

Re: GLOGAU - CZUCZKA Family #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Eric Artur Glogau, >from Herzliya, Israel asked about his GLOGAU-CZUCZKA
family >from Nikolsburg, Moravia and Vienna and specifically about his
father's occupation and training.

I have done some preliminary work on this family as I first contacted
Erich re the GLOGAU on my family tree about which I know very little.
GLOGAU was a very common name in Nikolsburg, now Mikulov, Moravia.
It is understandable that Erich knows little about his father as we can
see he died very young, as did his grandfather, Hermann:
Zentralfriedhof Tor I. 51 7 6
GLOGAU Arthur aged 35 24.10.1932
GLOGAU Hedwig aged 57 02.03.1927
GLOGAU Hermann aged 39 30.08.1903

I have found the obituary for Arthur in the Neue Freie Presse:
http://tinyurl.com/b2dpkd or
http://anno.onb.ac.at/cgi-content/anno?apm=0&aid=nfp&datum=19321026&seite=15&zoom=2

Here we see other family names and relationships, so we can expand the
names Erich has given us: CZUCZKA GLOGAU FRANKFURTHER KOLBER MUNCACSY
SALZER STRENITZ.

There is also an entry >from the Vereien Reisender Kaufleute Oesterreichs
{trade organisation for travelling salesmen} as Artur is designated a
Kaufmann. [salesman]. It states that Artur was active in the organisation
for many years. Perhaps he travelled and sold specialised machinery as an
agent for one or more companies, as Erich suggests he was an Engineer?

The obituary for grandfather Hermann adds nothing new to what we know:
http://tinyurl.com/c83cxh

http://anno.onb.ac.at/cgi-content/anno?apm=0&aid=nfp&datum=19030831&seite=9&zoom=2

How to proceed: there may be records for the Verein in Vienna - that
would be one step forward; the probate records and the Meldezettel should
be retrieved; the latter are unlikely however to tell Erich what or where
his father studied.

I do suggest Erich posts this query on the Austria-Czech SIG:
http://www.jewishgen.org/austriaczech in case anyone has detailed knowledge
of the Verein and any records which might still exist about its
members and their qualifications.

Searching for family BITTER / BITER.

Yisrael and his wife Chaya Sara b. c. 1860's/early 70's had the
following children - Yona Leib, Bluma, Aharon Josef, Pnina and Yaakov.
Pnina and Yaakov survived the Shoah, both re-married and moved to Israel.

Pages of Testimony for the family give either Slobozia Banila,
Storojinet, Bukovina, Romania or purely Banila, Storojinet, Bukovina,
Romania - I am confused as are both places one and the same?

Banila is now called Banilov and is in the Ukraine.
