A new idea just occurred to me. There is a renowned professor who is here in the USA and therefore more accessible, I hope: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Behar If anyone can help surely it will be Professor Behar.

I emailed the Patronato (in Spanish) asking about immigration records but there was no reply. I did see that Facebook has a page for the Patronato but the information about it is sketchy. I tried posting on that but nothing happened. I don't think the contact person mentioned in this discussion group for the Patronato is the contact anymore (I used the organization's email address, not a person's).

There are articles out there about the Cuban Jews but they speak generically about the immigration experience and don't provide clues to where there may be data. I've tried researching the potential ports of embarkation (Bremen, Hamburg, etc.) but so far no luck. None of the major genealogy portals have their names as immigration ship passengers. The portal called Cubagenweb only has Havana disembarking passenger lists from ships prior to 1900s. I've also looked at collections of Cuban newspapers, most notably the major publication El Diario de la Marina, which is digitized but not indexed so that one cannot search within the collection nor within each edition. 

If disembarkation lists are lost, I have to believe that embarkation lists still exist somewhere. However, it's been like searching for a needle in a haystack. I wish some of the scholars or leaders of the Jewish community could take up the search for the 1920s. Many of those Jews immigrated twice in their lifetimes (1) out of Europe in the early 20th century and (2) out of Cuba in the 1960s mostly into the U.S.

Seeking information on POLLAK, ADLER, SELIKOS Hungary-Slovakia #hungary #slovakia

PIERRE WOLFF
 

This is the first time I am posting a message.
I am trying to find information on our ancestor Rav  PINHAS ELIAS ADLER Ben Avraham  also called Hevesi. He came to Abony (Hungary before 1792 ).Was he connected to the 3 brothers Stern , Fruchter and Adler who came to Marmaros and greeted the Emperor?
I am also trying to find information on my paternal grandmother Ernestine Pollak (Married to Heinrich Adler ) , born in Tapolcsany in 1853, we cannot find information on the Pollaks of Tapolcsany  (her mother was Johanna)
Does anybody have information on SZALAKUS near NITRA where my paternal family (ADLER;we don't know if they are connected to rav Pinhas Adler ) comes from ?
We recently heard of AVRAHAM SELIKOS (HOF),connected to Rav Mordekhay Schoenfeld from Nitra .Would this rav Avraham Selikus originate from SZALAKUS?
Does anybody know the origin of the name BARKANY (HUMMENE)
Thank you to all the wonderful people who take the time to read and answer

Germany & Austria, Directories of Military and Marine Officers, 1500-1939 (in German)

Subject: 
I am trying to find birth records on my grandmother Fannie Krausz ( or Krause) . She was born in the 1880's and I am not sure if the town was considered to be in Romania or Hungary at the time. I was told by my father she was Romanian but her records in the US show her as Hungarian ( she came to the us in the early 1900's)  I am not sure how to go about finding her birth certificate or record of birth.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated (again her name was Fanni or Fannie Krause or Krausz and she married my grandfather Sandor (Solomon) Singer in the US in the early 1900's)

Re: Looking for BERNAN relatives from Vilnius #lithuania

Have you tried the All Lithuania Darabase on Jewishgen.  I have spent the last 3 years finding family there from both Vilnius and Kuanas, including many small towns. Click on all databases  and then Lithuania.  You can register for free then keep your number from anddd CNN password handy.

Yad Vashem is also helpful in finding testimony
From the Holocaust.

Gittle FRIEDBERG-!9th-20th cent. Jerusalem and/NYC #usa

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My great great uncle's, Kalman ABRAMOWITZ death certificate from NYC,
1944, states that his mother's family name was FRIEDBERG. From family
lore I have heard that his mother (Gittle) had married a British
gentleman by the name of LAZAROFF. According to this "lore" they had
lived in Jerusalem (Mea Shearim neighborhood) around the beginning of
the 20 th century. We are not aware of the above FRIEDBERG
connection.

Is anyone familiar with a Gittle ABRAMOWITZ a widow who came to the
USA around 1880-1890 (supposedly to New Haven) or have heard about
the above mentioned LAZAROFF of England?

Jammal Family from Aleppo, Syria in the 19th Century #sephardic #israel

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners,

Trying to locate the descendants of Eliahu Jammal who lived in Aleppo in the midst of the 19th century. His son Rafael b. 1860  d.1920. His children were born already in Palestine. Another son

died in 1945,not clear where. There were probably more siblings who may have migrated elsewhere. The Mohel registers which I have consulted do not have any entry about Eliahu Jammal.

Your help and clues will be highly appreciated.

Does anyone know of software that can compare photographs of people and determine (or suggest) if one person in a photograph is the same in both photographs (even if the person might be a different age in each photograph)?
 
Are there professionals who have this kind of expertise?
 
Thanks for any links or resources.

Re: Yizkor Book of Plotzk/Plock (Poland) #yizkorbooks

Tony Hausner
 

Here is what I have posted on viewmate on Jewishgen.org: This is from the Table of contents from the Plock/Plotz Yizkor Book. I believe it is in Yiddish but it is possible in Hebrew. The Yizkor Book is mostly Yiddish (or Hebrew) and some in English. In the English version there is a brief section entitled "The Minute-Book of the Tailors" Is the Yiddish version of this chapter included in the Yizkor book and if so what pages. I would be interested in translations of all the chapter titles but am most concerned to know if there is a Yiddish version of the Tailor chapter. Please contact me at thausner@.... Tony Hausner  


HIRSZFELD Bros., Warsaw #poland

Yale Reisner
 

ב"ה

Dear JewishGenners:

 

The September 9, 2022 editions of the Polish newspapers Gazeta Wyborcza and Rzeczpospolita carried a notice from the City of Warsaw announcing that the City was reviewing an adminstrative case dating from the 1940s with an eye to settling the ownership of a parcel of real estate located in the city.  A claim to the property was filed by attorney Ludomir Sujkowski on May 23, 1947 on their behalf and no action was takem at that time in response to that claim.  Specifically, the City is now - at last - seeking the heirs to:

 

The HIRSZFELD BROS. Company which was headquartered at ul. Bielańska 5, Warsaw.

 

The property in question is ul. Rymarska 6, in Warsaw, formerly designated as Hip. 471E.

 

Heirs to the Hirszfeld Bros. are asked to contact the Warsaw Mayor’s Office, Bierut Decree Department, within six months of the publication of the notice.

 

Best wishes,

 

Yale J. Reisner
