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.

ITS research #general

Hannah Berliner Fischthal
 

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.

One other possible source is the ITS records. Go to the US Holocaust Museum web
site and find this source. There are millions of records on holocaust victims
there.

Jim Gutterman
 

italiangen.com has a form to mail in to National Archives in New York
and they mail back copy. Assume you have petition # at least. Look at
itialiangen index to get appropriate data and court. It's only like
7.50 for a copy (more if you want it certified) and they respond
pretty quickly

where my gf Yitzchak EBER was born. Any ideas of what the correct

finder with variants but had no success. Thanks for any suggestions.

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,

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:
