Addition #hungary

Stephan Casey reminded me, that the information I gave about the opening
ceremony was incomplete. It was "The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of
Europe" and was in Berlin, the opening ceremonies started with a concert on
9. May followed on the next day by music and official speakers and the
ceremonial opening of the memorial for the invited guests. The memorial was
finally opened for the public yesterday on the 12. of May.

Sorry for the incomplete information

Notan Zelig LAPIDES/LAPEDIS #general

Warren Kohn
 

It's been a long time since I sought information on my great grandfather
Notal Zelig LAPIDES or LAPEDIS. Probably arrived in the States in the
mid-1880s, port of entry unknown, country of origin unknown. Believed to
have settled in New York. Wife's name was Miriam and he had two daughters,
Rebecca and Celia Hannah, both of whom would have been very young (around 3
and 5). He came alone but his wife and children followed later, again port
of entry and country of origin are unknown.

It appears that Miriam and her daughters were unable to locate Notan Zelig
when they got here. They ultimately went to Boston where Rebecca was left
in an orphanage and Miriam and Celia Hannah moved to Charleston SC. They
were later joined by Rebecca.

Does any of this sound familiar to anyone? Is there any information on
Notan Zelig? Any help is appreciated.

Las Vegas Convention FrenchSIG Luncheon...! #france

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

Dear All,

I have just been notified by those in Las Vegas who are in charge of
the Convention scheduling, that only 8 members of the FrenchSIG have
signed up to attend a FrenchSIG Luncheon. As the rooms used for the
SIG luncheons are set for >from 60 to 80 persons, and very high
surcharges are made for any smaller groups, the decision has been made
to cancel the FrenchSIG luncheon.

It would have been nice, but... However, our SIG meeting is still
scheduled for Monday morning, July 11 at 9:45 am, and I do hope that
there will a number of you who will attend that! We have matters of
importance to discuss. We will also have a presence at the SIG Fair on
Wed. July 13. We hope to see you there, too!

I will discuss with the Convention planners the matter of returning any
fees already paid for the planned luncheon, and let you know the
procedure involved.

Biertan, Romania responses #romania

gedalia54@juno.com <gedalia54@...>
 

Dear ROM-SIG group members,

I want to make a brief general response to the group that I have been
flooded with responses, all of them great and very specific, about
where the town of Biertan is. I assume most of these responses have
also posted to the group.

I never imagined I would get a response as great as this. Once I put
them all together and sort them out, I am positive that I will have
found my town in Romania.

If I haven't replied to you yet directly, it's only because I'm playing
'catch up' and will respond to you in the next day or so.
Thanks again for your great response.

MORGANSTERN #romania

Doug Stern <shlomoson@...>
 

Dear Jeremy,

I was just wondering if we are related via the MORGANSTERNS >from Moldova
area. My ggggrandfather
had a daughter by the name of Chantze (Heinza) ROSENZWEIG who married Yosel
MORGANSTERN.
They had three kids, Sam, Max, Cecil. Note my gggrandfather Joseph Moshe
ROSENZWEIG had a daughter Sarah who married Sam MORGANSTERN. The borders
have changed and Chotin, Bessarabia is now in Ukraine. Does any of this ring
a bell with anyone?

I am living in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Sincerely,
Doug E. STERN
