JGSLA August 2 Program: "One Foot in America" #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

Straight >from his appearance at the IAJGS International Conference on
Jewish Genealogy, Erwin Joos, curator of the Eugeen Van Mieghem Museum
and President of the Eugeen Van Mieghem Foundation in Belgium, will
reprise his fascinating conference lecture at the next meeting of the
Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles:

One Foot in America: The Jewish Immigrants of the Red Star Line As Seen
Through the Eyes of Eugene Van Mieghem (1875-1930)

Monday, August 2, 2010 at 7:30PM

Martin Luther King, Jr. Auditorium
Santa Monica Public Library
601 Santa Monica Blvd. Santa Monica 90401

Come learn the story of the mass emigration of Eastern-European Jews
from Antwerp to American ports between 1873 and 1934. Of the 2.7 million
people that were transported by the Red Star Line 50 percent were Jewish.
Some of the notable immigrants were Irving Berlin, Golda Meir and Albert
Einstein. Special attention will also be paid to the Jewish writers who
described their emigration experience >from Antwerp: Sholem Aleichem and
Yuri Suhl. The Antwerp artist, Eugeen Van Mieghem, is probably the only
artist in Europe who made a cycle of works of art about these Jewish
emigrants. He lived in his parents' tavern in the Montevideo Street just
in front of the warehouse of the Red Star Line.

The JGSLA traveling library will be available starting at 7PM. This
meeting is open to the public and free of charge to all.

Palenesky #romania

tolpolar@...
 

When researching for passengers of the ship Konig Friedrich August that left
Hamburg in 1912 to the final destination of Buenos Aires, I found a possible
relative who was born in the town of "Palenesky", supposedly in Russia/former
Soviet Union. I did an initial google search and nothing came out. I tried
different spellings, but nothing too relevant came out either. Has anybody heard
of this place, or a place with a similar name? Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Lithuanian Translation Help-Viewmate #lithuania

Dear Litvaks,

I am hoping that there is someone who can read and translate some small
Lithuanian items. These are small snipets >from my Aunt's 1949 Internal
Passports. I have been able to translate a lot of the print and script
using a Lithuanian -> English on-line translator but the script is a
little more difficult to do.

I have posted the following items to Viewmate:

FAMILY SITUATION:

A response on Viewmate or directly to msnodrog@yahoo.com

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Chaje FINK, d. NYC, 1894 #general

Lisa Grayson <lisa@...>
 

I have a copy of a New York death certificate for Chaje FINK, b. Russia
about 1827-28, died Feb. 3, 1894, in New York City. Her last address was
337 Cherry Street. I would be glad to e-mail a scan the certificate to
any Genner who is searching for records for this person; this will save
you the $18.50 fee for ordering it >from the NY archives. (I ordered the
certificate for the wrong Fink.) Please reply privately.

Town Name like Sacsisne? #general

Stephen Denker
 

On July 20, 1913, my grandfather's brother Zadok EBER came to my gf in
Connecticut. The ship "Kursk" manifest states in one box that his residence
was "Sacsisne (Minsk Gub)." But in another box it is spelled "Zacsisnoje"
I've tried but failed to come up with anything like this town name. I
assume it is somewhere near Borisov (Barysau) where my gf Yitzchak EBER was
born. Any ideas of what the correct place name and where this town could be?
I've tried JewishGen shtetl finder with variants but had no success. Thanks
for any suggestions.

Re: concentration camp victims #general

Joseph Fibel <jfibel@...>
 

Additional places to search for victims of the Holocaust are, of course,
at Yad Vashem,which has pages of Testimony which are on line, Yizkor
Books, which have Necrologies, for your community, The Russian
Extraordinary Commision Lists available at Yad Vashem and/or the U S
Holocaust Memorial Museum, in Washington, D C. The various extermination
camps themselves have some information,, The German Gedenkbuch, and the
Klarsfeld Book have information on the transports.

If your relatives were murdered immediately on arrival at the camp, there
probably was no record made for them on arrival but you may be able to
find a record of the transport on which they were sent to the camp. If
you have a transport record and no death record they probably were
murdered immediately on arrival.

Its a sad topic for which I am sorry.

Samuel HILDESHEIM [GOLDSCHMIDT] Hamburg, Hildesheim #germany

Irene Newhouse
 

One of the sons of Josef HAMELN [GOLDSCHMIDT] was Rabbi Samuel HILDESHEIM
[d. 1682, Hildesheim]. Several children are known for him.

However, buried at the Koenigstrasse Cemetery in Hamburg is Hadassa
[died 1656]. Her gravestone says she's the "daughter of our teacher,
the master Samuel HILDESHEIM. [That's my translation of the German
translation. The Hebrew text & German can be seen at:
http://steinheim-institut.de:50580/cgi-bin/epidat?function=Ins&sel=hha&inv=2499]

Does anyone know if that Hadassa's father is the same as the son of
Josef HAMELN? Thanks!

Linden Hill Cemetery #general

Stephenson <graysgrandma@...>
 

On July 16, 2010 I sent out a message regarding my ggparents who were buried
at Linden Hill Cemetery. I was concerned as to why I could not find their
graves.

Much thanks to Ira, Nancy, Renee, Lisa, Harvey, Eliana and Eden for their
responses and great suggestions.

I did call the cemetery today and the attendent was able to give me more
information on the location of the graves. She said that due to low
attendance at the cemetery they do not have someone on the grounds to help.
If you are planning on visiting the cemetery and don't already know where
the grave is, be sure to give her a call (Mon - Fri, 8:30 - 4:00;
212-477-2800.) She will be able to walk you through, over the phone, to
where the grave is.

I don't know when my next trip to New York will be. Hopefully, I will be
successful next time.

I am grateful to this group for all the help that I have been given.
