Re: Rabbi Avraham YOFFE/JOFFE's move to England #unitedkingdom

You can look in the Census of England & Wales.
I have found an entry in the 1881 Census for Abraham Jaffe aged 39 a
HebrewTeacher, born in Russia. He had a wife Hannah also aged 39. Perhaps he was
the one you are seeking.
They lived in Whitechapel. There were ten in the household including six children
of whom 2 were born in Russia and the first of the other 4, all born in England,
was aged 9. So they arrived in England no later than 1872.
The two others in the household were a domestic servant, born Russia, presumably
Jewish, and Harris Jaffe aged 55, a Visitor, born Germany, whose occupation was
given as 'Dairyman'.

Hello Genners:
I would like translations of these documents that I posted on Viewmate.
The events occurred in today's Poland but the documents may be in either Russian
or Polish so that is why I am posting them here.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=16020

I would greatly appreciate it if I could have a very complete translation of
the
documents as I am trying to find all the names associated with this family. I
believe my great great grandmother was Estera Gitla Krzewin with her maiden
name
as Teperowicz with father Chemia and mother Mirka. My great great grandfather
should be Lejba Krzewin but I don't know his parents' names. I got the records
from the LDS library after finding the films on JRI Poland.
Thank you in advance.

INTRO -immigrants in Mississippi Louisiana and Texas prior to 1860 #usa

Kay Goldman <kgoldman@...>
 

Howdy,
I just joined GerSig. I have been doing genealogy since the early 1970s.
I live in College, Station, Texas USA and my native language is English.
If the JGFF researcher number is 39599.

Great grandparents were born in the south and my great great grandparents
arrived in the US prior to 1860.

According to the grave stone Minna WOLF OPPENHEIMER was born in Polk-Hanover
on December 25, 1816 and died in Clinton La. on October 23 1889.
Hirsch OPPENHEIMER born Eppingen Jan 1816 died in 1856 in Clinton La. I
have this family lineage but not the wife.
Daughter Hanna OPPENHEIMER born Missouri in 1844 all other children born
and lived in Louisiana.

I am searching for immigration information about the couple and information
about Minna WOLF.

Minna ? HART, Husband named Louis or Lewis HART came to US lived in Osyke
Mississippi.
Louis died in New Orleans during a yellow fever epidemic never listed in
census. Minna born in September of 1826 in Prussia but we do not know where.
She died in Palestine, Texas in 1901.

There was a family legend that a sponsor brought Louis to the US and that
he changed his name but we have also found other HARTs living in Osyke and
were told they were all cousins.

I do not know if this would be Germany or not. I am searching for information
about this family. Thank you

Shalom,

As you will see by the list of new and updated projects appearing below, the
Yizkor Book project has seen a continued frenzy of activity during June. I'm

BOOK CITE 10 biographies from post-WWII East-Germany #germany

Cornelia <conniekoyama@...>
 

Greetings,
While doing research on my family, I happened to come across this book
recently. It was published in 2008, so there may have been some mention
of it here (before I joined GerSig). I have no idea whether this may be
of personal interest to anybody on this forum, and there is no English
translation yet.

"Zwischen Bleiben und Gehen - Juden in Ostdeutschland 1945 bis 1956 ,
Zehn Biographien" (= Between Staying and Leaving - Jews in East-Germany
1945-1956, ten biographies) - Andreas Weigelt (author), Hermann Simon
(publisher) Published in 2008 by Centrum Judaicum & text verlag/edition
Berlin in coordination with the exhibition of the same title and content
April 6-June 29, 2008 at the Stiftung Neue Synagoge Berlin - Centrum Judaicum
http://www.cjudaicum.de/ http://www.textpunktverlag.de

The biographies are about the following persons:
Otto Ephraim (1889-1951)
Josef Jubelski (1888-1959)
Adalbert Bela Kaba-Klein (1895-1962)
Fritz Katten (1898-1962)
Julius Meyer (1909-1979)
Erich Nelhans( 1899-1950)
Eva Robinson (b.1918)
Ernest Wilkan (1898-1949)
Karl Wolfsohn (1887-1946)
Leo Zuckermann (1908-1985) plus

Ein 'kleines Paradies' (a 'small paradise') (1945-1953)
(about the Jewish children's home Berlin-Niederschoenhausen)

The backside of the book states (freely translated by me, Connie Koyama):
Soon after their liberation, the few surviving Jews in the Soviet
occupation zone of Germany and in the Soviet sector of Berlin, found
themselves between the two fronts of the the Cold War. [snip - contact
Ms. Koyama privately for the full book jacket description]

The book as well as the exhibition document with the ten selected
biographies the specter of political repressions that took place in
East-Germany, and how use was made of massive anti-Jewish prejudice in
the context of the Cold War.

There are margin notes on each page referring to the source of relevant
information.
There is a 1-page Glossary of German abbreviations used in the book.
This book was not written with genealogical research in mind. It lacks
therefore, IMHO, having a list of names w/page references of all the
persons that are being mentioned in connection with these ten people.

occupation zone of Germany and in the Soviet sector of Berlin, found
themselves between the two fronts of the the Cold War. [snip - contact
Ms. Koyama privately for the full book jacket description]

The book as well as the exhibition document with the ten selected
biographies the specter of political repressions that took place in
East-Germany, and how use was made of massive anti-Jewish prejudice in
the context of the Cold War.

There are margin notes on each page referring to the source of relevant
information.
There is a 1-page Glossary of German abbreviations used in the book.
This book was not written with genealogical research in mind. It lacks
therefore, IMHO, having a list of names w/page references of all the
persons that are being mentioned in connection with these ten people.

INTRO researching OPPENHEIMER and WOLF families- to southern USA before 1860 #germany

Kay Goldman <kgoldman@...>
 

Howdy,
I just joined GerSig. I have been doing genealogy since the early 1970s.
I live in College, Station, Texas USA and my native language is English.
My JGFF researcher number 39599.

My Great grandparents were born in the south and my great great grandparents
arrived in the US prior to 1860. MODERATOR NOTE: You should also join
the Early American SIG].

According to the grave stone Minna WOLF OPPENHEIMER was born in Polk-Hanover
on December 25, 1816 and died in Clinton Louisiana [LA] on October 23 1889.
Hirsch OPPENHEIMER born Eppingen Jan 1816 died in 1856 in Clinton LA
I have this family lineage but not the wife.

Daughter Hanna OPPENHEIMER born Missouri in 1844 all other children born
and lived in Louisiana.

I am searching for immigration information about the couple and information
about Minna WOLF.

Minna ? HART, Husband named Louis or Lewis HART came to US lived in Osyke
Mississippi. Louis died in New Orleans during a yellow fever epidemic
never listed in census.
Minna born in September of 1826 in Prussia but we do not know where.
She died in Palestine, Texas in 1901.

There was a family legend that a sponsor brought Louis to the US and that
he changed his name but we have also found other HARTs living in Osyke
and were told they were all cousins.

I do not know if this would be Germany or not. I am searching for
information about this family. Thank you.

Re: Concentration Camp Victim Research- Thanks to All #general

Larry Ward, MD MBA <llward3@...>
 

Dear List-
Thanks for the many helpful responses to my query about Concentration
Camp Victim research on the Gottesman / Friedlander family. Following
the leads has been helpful, although it may be that my distant relations
perished at a camp >from which no records survive. At least, I am making
the effort on their behalf, and can add the results of this to their
ancestral files.

I was able to contact the person who posted Taube Friedlander on Yad
Vashem, but she had no documentation. I am trying the recommended
specific camp sites, as well as the International Location Service.

Yad Vashem and ITS will only search specific names, not (for instance)
all appearances in specified locations. And the index can be searched
only alphabetically, not by location. There are professional
researchers who will search through the ITS Index in Yad Vashem.
I have been talking to someone who does this and will be happy to tell
you more offlist.
