JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen European ancestry of Joseph & Morris FELBER #general

משה פלבר
 

Dear Genners
I wonder if any one knows of a research regarding the European ancestry of
Joseph & Morris FELBER who emigrated >from Austria (Galicia) where they were
born in the last quarter of the 19th century - to the U.S.in the early
1900's. This might help me in ascertaining the same about my gfather and
his brother - with precisely the same names ! - only, they were born a
generation earlier in Galicia.

I am writing after reading Ann Rabinowitz's posting of July 26,2008.
Can any of the list members provide more info whether the Yiddish
newspapers in NY at the late 1800s published death announcements or
even obits?
Thanks

Re: Possible error in records? #general

It's always best to go to the source documents, but also to keep an
open mind, since there can be mistakes. (99% accuracy still means
that most of us will encounter some mistake or other when researching
our families.)

I can only offer a few guesses, but if you were looking at original
documents, they might have been written up, possibly, years after the
events. (Official registers were instituted at different times, and
events sometimes recorded retroactively, especially around the
transition times.) It's a fairly obvious "mistake" to refer to a
woman by her married name, in the case of the birth record for Hannah
CARCAS, or it's also possible that Rebecca MARTIN's mother died in
childbirth (unfortunately common in those days), and was adopted by
her uncle and aunt.

But if the data is >from a secondary source, such as an online index,
it could be that the transcriber (or the document) confused another
field, such as witnesses or godparents with the names of the parents,
since these families are clearly related, and not likely to be just a
coincidence.

mothers.

I notice that there was a David Martin born in Bethnal Green in 1848 to
a Judah Martin and Rebecca Carcas and was considering that there may
have been some confusion when typing up

There also appears to be a Hannah Carcas who was born in Whitechapel in
1890 to Isaac de Abraham Dias and Abigail de Isaac Gomes Da Costa, again
could this be an error or has the child been given another name?

Juergen FRENKEL #general

Edwin Parks
 

Hello my friends. Once again I am back to ask for any help to track
down a Jewish man who served in the British Army. Lance Corporal
Juergen FRENKEL was one of very few Jews who served in the Trans
Jordan Frontier Force - which was mostly Arab - during or just after
WW2. His service number was 5104 and I know that in 1955 when he was
issued with a British General Service Medal he was living at ** Kiryat
Sefer Street, Ahuza, Haifa. I have tried to find any reference to him
on Jewishgen without success. I would very much appreciate any help
anyone can give me.
Thank You, Eddie Parks (edwinprks@...)

Additional information about Adam Czerniakow's wife:
In the Wikipedia entry on Adam Czerniakow I see his wife's name cited as
"Niunia (Felicja)".

She died on February 24, 1950 and was buried at the Jewish Cemetery in
Warsaw. Her maiden name is given as Zwayer.

I am searching for any information about the wife ( born Reznik)
of Adam CZERNIAKOW of the Warszawa Ghetto. I believe she was the

South Africa SIG #SouthAfrica Leonard Harris query #southafrica

Saul Issroff
 

Last week I asked if anyone had information about Leonard Harris, son of Lionel
and Lena Harris of Roodeport.

I gave details of a tombstone in Westpark of a Lena Harris, making the erroneous
assumption that this was his mother. Thanks to excellent research input >from
Vanessa.... in Israel it's clear that he attested to being Roman Catholic on
enlistment in the army and thus a cross on his war grave is correct.


Moral, don't make presumptions unless you have absolute proof.

Kind regards,

Saul


Success Stories - October Issue #courland #latvia

Phyllis Kramer
 

We invite you to read the four inspiring stories in the latest issue
of JewishGen's SUCCESS! STORIES webzine. You can access these stories
from the "About Us" oval button on our website or by following this
link: http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Testimonials/.

In this issue, cousins Todd Halpern and Harry Green find each other
via JewishGen's Family Finder and work together to expand their family
connections. With help >from the Holocaust and War Victims Tracing
Service of the Red Cross, Jack Weinstein searches for his uncle for
14 years. Sam Glaser finds some of his mother's old letters in a
photo album, letters that eventually lead him to previously unknown
cousins. And Marla Raucher Osborn treats us to an essay on sorting
out the family tree relationships when cousins have married cousins
over multiple generations.

This issue was prepared by JewishGen volunteers -- Nancy Siegel,
Editor and Anna Blanchard, Webmaster. We are sure you will be moved
by these stories and we encourage you to submit your own success
stories to us at: success@...
