Re: Abbreviations used in Hamburg cemetery records #germany

PvM is probably an abbreviation of Parnes ve-Manhig, a title given to an
elder or lay leader of a community.

Looking for relatives from Markt Berolzheim and nearby #germany

Lin Herz
 

Hi GerSIG Friends,
It was great seeing many of you in Cleveland!

I’looking for people who have HERZ and SCHOENWALTER relatives/
ancestors >from Markt Berolzheim, Bavaria, Germany or nearby. The nearest
Jewish cemetery was in Treuchtlingen, so if your family was >from there,
you might be related.

I found a probably living cousin on the SCHOENWALTER side today.
We’re trying to connect his SCHOENWALTERs to my 3x great
grandmother Resele/ Rosalia/ Rosa SCHOENWALTER. And we’re trying
to connect a Siegfried SCHOENWALTER who married one of my Herzes to my
Resele SCHOENWALTER and to his SCHOENWALTERS. All of these people are
from tiny Markt Berolzheim.
I know it’s not likely, but maybe someone on here is related.
I’ve found relatives twice before on GerSIG.

Best wishes, Lin Herz Palm Bay, Florida lin32905@gmail.com

Re: ROSENGARTEN ZIMMERMAN #germany

Hi Liz

According to this family treehttps://tinyurl.com/y4cg35vz, Siegfried
ROSENGARTEN's parents were Gustav ROSENGARTEN 1885-1949 and his wife
Caroline born FALKENSTEIN 1878-1942.
Gustav is the only ROSENGARTEN listed in the Kassel address book for 1915.

Palestinian citizenship papers for Siegfried and his wife Paula
born ZIMMERMANN [sic] are online at the Israel State Archive:
https://tinyurl.com/y3mncea5 .

Gustav, Caroline and several of Siegfried's siblings made their way to
Argentina via Bahia, Brazil in August 1939 (source FamilySearch.com).

Gustav and Caroline appear to be buried in La Tablada Jewish cemetery
in Buenos Aires (source hebrewsurnames.com), although dates and details
vary >from those on the family tree above.

ITS Arolsen has searchable documents relating to Siegfried's brother Ernst or
Ernest ROSENGARTEN and his wife Frida.

Lastly, the family have profiles on Geni.com, Siegfried being listed as
"Fritz" and his mother Caroline as "Clara", by which name she was
evidently known.

The main family profile manager is Julie KALMAN who is married to a
grandson of Siegfried's brother Erwin ROSENGARTEN, and there are a number
of other living collateral descendants. Thus any residual doubt about
Siegfried's identity should hopefully be resolvable by DNA testing.

Best wishes, Peter Lobbenberg, London, England peterlob@peterlob.co.uk

Fw: Mateszalka Cemetery #hungary

miriamshell@...
 

In regard to Steve Stein's question about the cemetery in Mateszalka, I have not
seen this map but I do have a listing (I'm not sure how complete it is) of the
graves in Mateszalka along with their locations in the cemetery.
The list is about 20 pages long but if anyone is interested, I could scan and send it.
Miriam Shell

Moderator: Please respond off-list to Miriam. I also suggest that she send her list
of burials to Nolan Altman <naltman@jewishgen.org> to find out if he can incorporate
this data into JOWBR.
