Remembering Robert ADLER (1913-2007), husband of Gertrude GEIRINGER #austria-czech

Peter Rohel <peterrohel@...>
 

Dear Genres,

Celia Male mentioned the "Wall of Fame" and Robert ADLER (1913-2007). I remember surfing the TV with my "remote" and coming across a
news channel announcing the passing of Robert Adler on Feb 15, 2007. Week later I found out that my gg-granduncle FRIEDMANN married
a GEIRINGER. I began a search and was fortunate to find a group of individuals researching the GEIRINGER families.

Relevance? On March 1, 2007 I created a GEIRINGER "research page" on my genealogy web site with abt. 430 names. It includes a branch
with Gertrude GEIRINGER (1918-2002) + Robert ADLER (1913-2007), the Austrian-American inventor who held numerous patents, including
the TV remote control.

*We are searching for details on the relationship between the (10) branches on the page. When we establish a link to our
FRIEDMANN-GEIRINGER branch or other surnames on the web site, I will add the non-GEIRINGER surnames to the Names list, etc. I have
other ADLER families/names on the web site, but so far connections have not been found, since we just began.

Greetings,

Re: Catch 22 and the NY Vital Records? #general

Lisa Bracco <lisa5bracco4@...>
 

Hi Michael,

I had the same problem a few months ago when trying to get the death
certificate for my great aunt. I knew only her name (and of course her
gender), her husband's name, her address on the 1930 census (was pretty sure
she lived there until she died) and only the approximate year of death
(1950-1952). I certainly didn't know her SS number, her father's name, etc.

What helped me was going down in person to the Dept of Health were the
records are actually kept. For a $15 fee, they let me go into a records
room and do a manual search through books that contain the death indexes for
NYC, one year per volume. The index, which is in alphabetical order, will
tell you only the person's name, date of death, the borough of death and
the death certificate number.

I took this info to the window at the Department of Health and with some
cajoling (they didn't want to accept the form with some blanks--I argued
that maybe she didn't have a SS number, etc. and that I was giving them the
actual death certificate number) they finally accepted it. Two weeks later,
I received the document.

One other thing, on the advice of other members of this group, I said my
purpose for requesting the certificate was to be able to visit her grave,
since the death certificate lists the cemetery where your relative is
buried. Apparently saying you are researching your genealogy is not always
an acceptable answer.

Hope this helps.

Re: JGS chapter in Southern New Jersey sought #general

Sharon:
Where will you be living? That would give us an idea of what "too far"
represents.

By the way, the JGS of Greater Phila meets in Elkins Park which is north
of the city. They have a Media affiliate that meets in Media, which is
west of the city and 40 minutes or more >from Elkins Park.

There used to be a South Jersey affiliate, I seem to recall--but I can't
find mention of it. Otherwise, Central Jersey is the nearest one.

Esta ZIMMER - 1942 - New Jersey #general

Barbara Zimmer <bravo.zulu@...>
 

In 1942 Esta ZIMMER and Mrs. Anna ZIMMER (Esta's mother?) visited a
new baby in the hospital in Newark NJ . My first question, how old
would someone have to be to visit a new mother in 1942?

Does anyone recognize Esta? I assume that she lived in New York or
New Jersey but can find no record of anyone in the 1930 census that
would match a teenager with that name in 1942.

In the 1930 census are Morris and Anna ZIMMER in Passaic NJ with a
daughter Irena (??) born about 1924. This family might be a fit, if
their daughter used the name Esta ...

Please respond privately.

of the cousins, who, as a toddler, was saved by her Righteous Gentile nanny;

Hi Fellow Researchers,

I am at wits ends in find my great grandmother's relatives. Her name is Ida
(Maiden Name Singer) Ziman. Ida's parents are David Singer and Beatrice
Unknown.

from what I was told is that she came into the Boston Port (Ship Unknown)
with her siblings. It was apparent that they got separated >from them and went
separate ways. This was according to some relatives who thinks they went to
the western part of the United States.

Looking for descendants of David Singer and Beatrice Unknown:

1.) Ida (Singer) Ziman born between 1864 and 1868 Russia and died June 27,
1940 Fall River, Bristol, MA while her husband Fischel Ziman born between 1861
and 1876 years old while her death certificate states that she was 68 years
old.

If anyone has any information it would be gladly appreciated and can be
contacted directly at bjeberman@aol.com.

Thank you for taking the time on my behalf.

In Warmest Regards,

Judith Elaine Berman

SCHECHTMAN/SHECHTMAN/SHEKHTMAN Family from Minsk #general

Sandra B Landers
 

Dear Fellow Genners,
I recently discovered a Long Lost Branch of my SCHECHTMAN / SHECHTMAN /
SHEKHTMAN Family on my father's side. This is all due to the kind efforts of
another fellow Genner, who went out of his way to help me. Since this recent
discovery I have been in contact with newly discovered cousins in Israel,
Canada and Moscow, that I never new existed. I always knew that my grandfather
and his family came >from Minsk, Russia and that there were other brothers who
were left back there. We have been sharing information and photos back and
forth ever since. This has been so exciting to all of us to have finally
linked our family once again.

Just the other day I received a family photo showing my Great-grandfather,
Abraham SCHECHTMAN along with his oldest son Leib and Leib's family. This is
the very first time I have ever seen a photo of my Great-grandfather. What a
thrill it was to see this. Standing behind my Great-grandfather is one of
his grandson's named Abram.

I have recently discovered that Abram was born in 1904 in Orsha, Belarus.
In 1907 one of my uncles who came to the US named his son Abraham in 1907. In
1908, another son Sholom, who remained in Russia, named his son, Avram. My
grandfather came to the US in 1904 and in 1910 named my father, Abraham. In
1915 another uncle who came to the US also named his son Abraham. I grew up
knowing all the family Abraham's in the US and I always thought that they
were named after their grandfather, Abraham who was deceased.

I questioned my cousin who sent the photo to give me an approximate year
that this photo was taken and the response that came back was about "1922." How
could this be? All these given names, Abram, Avram, and Abraham's were
given while their grandfather was still living. I and the rest of my extended
family considered ourselves to be descendants of Ashkenazi Jews. I know that
Sephardic Jews name their children after living family members, but not
Ashkenazi Jews. I am truly perplexed by this recently discovered information.
Can there be another explanation for this? I hope someone can help me with
this confusion. Thank you for any light you can shed on this puzzle.

Please, respond privately unless the administrator feels that this might be
of some interest to the rest of the group.

Re: First Name "Fanny" #ukraine

I couldn't answer your question precisely, but my paternal grandmother's
first name Fanny mentioned on my father's documents was in reality Feigel.
This I have noticed a number of times.

Best regards.

Fanny was the first name of many jewish women in the XIXth century.
Does someone know how it was written in yiddish and/or russian, and
wether it is the diminutive form of "stefania" like in many
languages, or the transcription of a specific jewish name ? Thank you

And thank you also for all those who some time ago had brought me
all the light for town's name "belocerkovo"
