I’m following the life of Bettina WORMSER, d/o Joseph WORMSER and Sadie ANDERSON.

Bettina, b 1902, NYC wed Joseph David WORMSER in 1923. She divorced him in Feb 1936 in Reno, Nevada.
,
They had two sons: Benjamin (named for his paternal GF) b 1924. and James b about 1930.

The last mention I can find of these two boys is on the 1940 census.They are living with their mother at the home of their maternal GP.

The transcription lists them as Bettina BORZIR, Benjamin and James BORZIMER.

Does anyone know anything about them?

Hi all,

I am planning a trip to Lvov (Lviv) on next April 2020 for the first
time, and would like to hear any suggestions and comments about the
city.
I have some addresses >from ancestors that lived in the area, but I
also would like to visit the archive to do some research, go to the
cemetery looking for records or burials, visit synagogues and Jewish
areas (if they are) and of course do a bit of regular tourism with my
wife, mom and 2 kids (17 & 11).

Any suggestions, comments or tips would be appreciated. If you have
recommendations of locals that can help, much better.
Feel free to answer me directly.

Best regards

501 names of persons whose family names began with the letter T have been
added to the Reichsvereinigung database available at Steve Morse's website
under the heading Jewish Roof Organization. This information will also be
added to Jewishgen's Holocaust database.

This brings the total of Reichvereinigung names to 28,548. All of the names
may be viewed on the Bad Arolsen website, though my database includes
information and corrections >from other sources.

While all the persons whose names appear in this collection resided in
Germany at some point between 1933 and 1942, many of them were born
elsewhere, particularly in East Europe.

Meaning of the Hungarian Term Kultusz Eloljaro #hungary

Amit N
 

Dear all,

While trying to decipher an Hungarian book about the Jewish community
in Sombor, I have symbled upon the term mentioned above. Using Google
Translate and the help of some Hungarian speakers, I have managed to
understand that "Eloljaro" means someone who's in charge of something,
but I couldn't quite decipher the full meaning of the full term.
Perhaps someone here with some knowledge of how Jewish communities in
the Hungarian sphere acted, would be able to explain some more.

Thanks,

to hold the reunion, the planning involved, the lining up of speakers,

and will report on the actual reunion itself.

Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland

Lande
 

The names of 115 Jews whose family names began with the letter U have been added to the Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland database, now totaling 28,663 names.  The database may be accessed on Steve Morse’s website under the heading Jewish Roof Organization.  The information will also be added to Jewishgen’s Holocaust database.
 
As is true for all the names, the cards from which the information was drawn is available at the Bad Arolsen website, and the cards often contain additional information such as profession, street address and family membership. In many cases, drawing on information from other sources,  I have been able to add/correct material on the cards.
 
While all the persons whose names appear resided in Germany at some point between 1933 and 1942, many of them were born elsewhere, particularly in East Europe, and in one unusual case, the individual was born in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Re: About Moses Friedlander, Brooklyn, NY Rabbi

S&D Hirschhorn <sdh2381@...>
 

We are not sure if or how we are related but my grandmother Amelia Hirschhorn was born a Friedlander.  She married Lazar Hirschhorn of Latvia. Her family was from Lithuania.   A group of them migrated to Charleston, SC before the Civil War and at least one of them served in the Confederate army.
 
Suggest you contact Alex Friedlander who is a well known genealogist for more information.

I am seeking information my great-great uncle Moses Friedlander of
1637 50th Street, Brooklyn, NY, son of Hirsch Friedland(er) of Besaglo,
Latvia. The 1920 census lists his occupation as salesman but his nephew, my
grandfather David Freedland, told me he was a Rabbi as did my mother
Cecelia Rosenberg. My mother visited them often and told me all the
children - more than 13? -were musical and that each one played an
instrument. She also told me their house had only one bathroom and they
had a schedule for using it! Hannah Metzger, hallie.metzger@...

accessed free at central libraries). The Bremen emigration records are
also available.
