Re: Searching for family of Heddy GLEICH born in Vienna 1924 #austria-czech #unitedkingdom

Another place to search for descendants of Heddy Brooks, nee Gleich is the index on the website of the General Register Office..

https://www.gro.gov.uk

You need to register, and can only search over a period of four years at a time, but it is more complete than Free BMD.

Knowing the marriage date and place makes this quite feasible, and it also costs nothing. Actual birth records must be paid for, but are cheaper than from the commercial websites.

Re: Can You Translate? #translation

Sucher is a Polish variant of the name Yissachar or Issachar, the name of one of the twelve tribes of Israel.  It is not that unusual a name. 

Incidentally, in Polish, Hebrew names beginning in Yi- or Ye- often dropped that syllable:  Yisrael > Srul; Yeshayahu (Isaiah) > Szaja; Yehoshua (Joshua) > Szyja; Yekusiel > Ksyl; Yerachmiel > Rachmil; Yechiel > Chil and so on.

I think one should read "flew" as meaning "fled".

I did upload it to viewmate. I am not sure I did it correctly. Lines 12-15.

I used Jewishgen.org to try and translate names without success. I am unsure of where they lived in Russia. I think it was Kamenetz --not sure whether I am spelling it correctly. It is now Ukraine.

Thank you very much!

Ronni, death certificates are often incorrect. People are distraught and do not have records with them. 

Gittel might have been the name she preferred, when she was the informant.

In some places, if a newborn died before she was named, the birth/death was recorded with the mother’s given name. It would be interesting to prove that Gittel gave birth to two sets of twins, and which of the children survived.

Announcing the Publication of "Dukor - A Memoir" #JewishGenUpdates

Susan Rosin
 

 
Shalom,
 
JewishGen Press is proud to announce our 151st title: "Dukor - A Memoir".
 
By: Daniel Charney
Translated by: Michael Skakun
 
Details and where to order:
 

Hard Cover, 6” x 9” 272 pages

Name Indexing: Jonathan Wind

Cover Design: Jan R. Fine

 

The renowned Yiddish poet and journalist, Daniel Charney, recounts his childhood in the shtetl of Dukor, Belarus, and his early teenage years in Minsk and Vilna. When Daniel was one his father died, and his mother was left to raise her daughter and five sons in poverty. Daniel, her youngest, also suffered since infancy from a chronic illness. Despite this, Daniel and his family flourished, and two of his brothers achieved great eminence. Shmuel Charney Niger became a Yiddish writer and the leading critic of Yiddish literature; Baruch Charney Vladeck became an American labor leader, member of the New York City Board of Aldermen and City Council, and general manager of The Forward. This book offers an invaluable portrayal of the daily lives of Daniel’s family and of the community of Jews who lived in pre-revolutionary Russia, both in Minsk and in the shtetls at a time when Zionism and Socialism were playing a role in the Jewish community.

Is it possible that she is co-opting her father’s pedigree?

Some women who are serious about a priestly pedigree my elect this. Since there is no Hebrew, linguistic restrictions may not apply.

Another possibility is that it a visual way of bestowing a priestly blessing on the deceased without using words.

David,

'Patronato' is the vernacular name given to the new Ashkenazi synagogue, built I'm guessing sometime in the 1950s, and it is the largest on the island. I don't think the Patronato is comparable to a landsleit because it serves the entire Ashkenazic community, regardless of origin, whereas landsleit organizations tend to focus on specific towns or regions. In Cuba, Jews were either Polacos (Poles) or Turcos (Turks), corresponding to Ashkenazim and Sephardim. The Sephardim mostly arrived during the WWI era and the Ashkenazim during the interwar years. I recently learned that the earliest Jewish community on the Island consisted of Jews from the USA who came during the Teddy Roosevelt era. I believe the cemetery at Guanabacoa is on land formerly held by US Armed Forces during Roosevelt.

Would you mind letting us know what email address you used, and what document you requested? I’ve been trying to get a response from them for months, and have not had any acknowledgment that they’ve even received my messages. I’ve written to kaunas@... and lcva@... and provided them with the document number for an internal passport I was looking for. I have since found the info elsewhere, but would like to benefit from your experience if I need help from them again down the road. Much thanks.

Hi Max,

Indeed they do, but as I know no Hebrew or Yiddish I don't know which are the pages I need.

Hence my request : if someone kindly provides them my next step will be to seek a translation.

Hello Adam,
Is the Patronato somewhat analogous to a landsleit?

Re: Prezlau vs Przelav vs Przeclaw vs ?? #records

Alan Reische
 

Thank you, David. I considered Wroclaw/Breslau and rejected it for the following reason. In census reports, emigration records, death certificates and the like the family's country of origin was consistently shown as 'Austria' or 'Osterreich', with one minor exception. Breslau was a part of Germany post unification, or Prussia, pre-1871. I don't believe it was ever part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and it's difficult to believe that emigration officials in Hamburg ever mistakenly identified it as Austrian on repeated occasions.

As for Latvia, there's no indication of a family tie to the Baltic states.

Hi fellow Genners.

The Yizkor Book of Plotzk/Plock includes an article, as yet not translated from the original Hebrew/Yiddish, entitled (in English) "The Minute-Book of the Tailors' Union".

Could anyone kindly provide a copy of the appropriate page(s)?

Many thanks.

Help needed to research US State Dept records at NARA College Park, MD #usa

Daniella Alyagon
 

Good morning,

I have just spent about a week at College Park and a new research question presented itself. It is not possible for me to visit the US in the foreseeable future and so I would appreciate it if someone could visit the archive on my behalf and conduct this research.

I am searching for communication between the State Dept. and the US embassy in London, UK from the time of WW1 most probably (late 1915 to early 1916) concerning a prisoner of war / civilian internee named Moses Frostig.

This is part of a letter in the British Foreign Office file which refers to some correspondence with the US and is, therefore, the best indication to help find the relevant US State Dept & London Embassy records.
