Abraham WISLA #belarus

Adrienne Dodi <menahem@...>
 

I am seeking any information about my grandfather, Abraham WISLA or VISLA,
born 1888 in Plotsk, married Rebecca BARNETT in London in 1912, had a
chronic dripping ear (assumedly a punctured eardrum to avoid the draft).
Family emigrated to US in 1922 and Abraham subsequently died in 1927.
Family name later changed to WILSON. Only known siblings, Dave WILSON and
Frances Bialo WILSON.
Thanks,
Adrienne Wilson Dodi, Jerusalem

MODERATOR NOTE: Please remember to capitalize all surnames. The reason
for this is that the names stand out and readers can easily see whether
or not the message pertains to them.

Stan Golembe <ocstan@...>
 

As I am unable to travel, I would like to hire a researcher who could
retrieve a substantial number of birth, marriage, death and some other
records in NYC and go to a couple of cemeteries to take pictures. If anyone
out there can do this job or can recommend a pro, please reply to me
personally.
I also need a researcher in the Pinsk area of Belarus who is reliable and

I read some time ago about aerial pictures archive in NARA. I called them,
answered by Mr. DARYL D. BOTTOMS, Archivist, who asked for more details.
They want, as basis information, an accurate definition of the coordinates,
a map and the name of the shtetl. I sent all this data, but not answered for
over 2 months.

Two searchable cemetery databases for Austria? #general

Thomas F. Weiss
 

There are now two searchable databases for the cemeteries of Austria:

One is http://friedhof.ikg-wien.at/search.asp?lang=en which is part
of the website of the Israelitisches Kultusgemeinde Wien (Jewish
Community Center of Vienna). I refer to this as the IKG d atabase.

The other is http://www.schalom.at/ which is part of Schalom, Mag.
Walter Pagler's organization. I refer to this as the Schalom
database.

Both the IKG and the Schalom databases are based on Pagler's original
database (which is not on-line) although Pagler claims that the IKG
database is less complete than the Schalom database.

Thus far I have found the Schalom database difficult to use.
Although the IKG database is easy to use and yields a treasure trove
of information, it is incomplete. For example, I cannot find my
grandmother listed in the IKG database although she is in Pagler's
database and I have visited her grave in the Central Cemetery in
Vienna. I can't tell if she is listed in the Schalom database since
I have not gotten that to work.

My questions are:

(1) Does anyone have any insight into why there are two databases on
line? Has there been some kind of break between Pagler and the IKG?

(2) Has anyone gotten the Schalom database to work?

Many thanks for your insights.

Emanuel ALTMANN--Immigrant to Baltimore? (VIEWMATE) #general

Roger Lustig <trovato@...>
 

Dear colleagues:

I'm looking for any information about Emanuel ALTMANN. This is all I
know about him:

He was born in Silesia (part of Prussia in those days), probably near
Ratibor or Brieg, probably in the 1830's or 1840's.

His parents were Leopold ALTMANN and Henriette PREISS. Both died in 1890.

I know of two siblings:
--Josef ALTMANN (b. 1835 in Brieg, d. 1891 in Breslau), who married
Fanny BODLAENDER in Brieg in 1867.
--Friederike ALTMANN (b. 1832 in Kuchelna, Kr. Ratibor, d. 1901 in
Gleiwitz), who married Daniel LUSTIG in Zauditz, Kr. Ratibor, in 1853.
They're my g-g-grandparents.

Emanuel emigrated to the US at some point. He probably lived in
Baltimore. He married someone named Ellen. I have a photo of him and
two of her, all taken in Baltimore, by three different photographers.
Ellen looks to be between 40 and 60 in a hand-colored portrait by W.
Ashman's studio (17 W. Lexington St.). The backing of this photo says
"copyright 1889", but could of course be a print >from a negative exposed
previously.
She is perhaps a little younger in a seated portrait by Blessing & Kuhn
(46 N. Charles St.).
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=3002
Emanuel could be anywhere between 35 and 60 in a portrait by Casseday &
Co. Photographic Art Studios (3 locations).

Thanks to all who take a look!

from 1906 arrival information to living family, via the Internet #germany

<<In 1906 David GREIMANN lived in Chicago, IL.... his wife Helene (21
years old) and his two year old daughter >from Oderberg, Austria came on
ship Waldersee via Ellis Island to join him.... How can find anything
about this family and their later life?>>

I've written to Horst in greater detail, but want to outline the steps
that quickly led to finding this family:

1) Census search - A search of the 1910 census for GREIMAN(N) in Chicago
shows two more children born in the US after Helene's arrival -- Morris,
4, and Sidney, 1. By 1920, Erwin, 6, was also listed.

2) Social Security Death Index search - THE SSDI lists a Sydney GREIMAN
from Buffalo Grove, Illinois, and an Irvin GREIMAN >from Skokie who are
likely matches.

3) USSearch.com - Searching here for GREIMAN in Buffalo Grove brings up
Sydney and Belle, who may have been his wife. Searching for GREIMAN in
Skokie brings up Irvin, Era, and Renee. Renee, 48, is probably Irvin's
daughter.

4) Google.com - Searching here on various combinations of these family
names led to the discovery that Renee is married to Michael KLASS --
thanks to listings in her synagogue's newsletter (Beth Judea, Long
Grove, Illinois) when her grandmother died.

5) USSearch.com - Returning here, I found that Renee and Michael KLASS
live in Buffalo Grove Illinois. Their full address is on Switchboard.com
=========>

I hope that hearing about this search helps others who are looking for
living family. Granted, it would have been more difficult if Horst had
been looking for, say, a David Goldman who settled in New York!

Marriage records, Lviv #general

Errol Schneegurt
 

Hi,
I have been looking at some of the translations I am getting associated with
birth records form the city of Lviv and found that in some cases the
recording of the marriage is some time after the birth.

I understand the reasoning behind only recording the birth in religious
records and not on the civil records. What would be the reasoning of not
recording the marriage in the civil records and what would force the
recording in the civil records at a future date?

What could I expect to see on a marriage record if I tried to get copies of
them?

Thanks,

Errol Schneegurt LI NY ESLVIV@...
