Laurice ROSENBERG, Burbank CA #germany

Among the descendants of Meyer Jacob MEYER (Dransfeld 1868- Hann.Muenden
1909) I am searching for his ggson/daughter Laurice ROSENBERG, said to
be deceased on April 13, 1944. Given her/his probable age, if he is a
man, it may be a war casualty. If she is a woman, the death has probably
occurred in Burbank,CA.

I would be grateful for any suggestion how to search. Laurice's parents
were Willy/Bill ROSENBERG and Trude/Gertrude PLAUT, both probably
deceased in Burbank, Bill had a sister Helene MEYERFELD nee ROSENBERG.

Hi Rusty,

The most recent record that I have is the death of Fay DEKTOR (nee LEVY) who
died on 10 July 2003 in Washington, USA. It appears that her husband (name
unknown) pre-deceased her. She was survived by 2 children, Zelda Hiller & a
son Leslie. The notice appeared in a Cape Town Newspaper.

Dave's wife, Reggie, was a lifelong friend of my mother. They lived in 15
Kensington Crescent, Oranjezicht. To the best of my knowledge, Dave and Reggie are
buried in Cape Town.

Shulamit was Dave's niece - she lived with Dave and Reggie for many years. She
tells a bit of her story in the Herzlia School magazine at
http://www.herzlia.com/downloads/downloadStarted.aspx?DownloadID=f8fea069-b6e9-435a-a69d-0bafef064f7a&ClientKey=8E26035FA5F24078AE48181571D952B1

I notice that she spells her surname DECKTOR.

Engagement Notices #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Whilst looking through the "Sunday Times" (Johannesburg, South Africa),
August 26, 1945, I found the following engagement notice. What piqued my
interest was that the groom was >from a Panevezys family:

NOACH-SACKS.-The engagement is announced of Thelma, daughter of Mr. and Mrs
R. Noach, of Mossel Bay, to Max Sacks, of Parkview, Johannesburg, son of the
late Mr. and Mrs. M. Sacks, of Ponevezh. c550/j

Due to the date of the wedding, it might be that the parents were killed in
Panevezys during the Holocaust and that is why they are referred to in this
manner.

Another engagement notice was of interest too as it refers to a family name,
YAMEY, of one of the avid posters on the JewishGen and SIG digests.

YAMEY -FREEDMAN -The engagement is announced of Anne, only daughter of Mr
and Mrs M J Freedman, of Pretoria, to Ian, second son of Mrs. l Walt, of
Port Elizabeth and the late Mr S. Yamey. At home, Sun., Sept 2, >from 5 to 7
p.m. 32854

This confirms that it is good to look at all sorts of resources when
searching for your family, particularly newspapers. The site I used in this
case was http://www.newspaperarchive.com.

The Riga archive databases are not searchable by name in any language.
They do provide access to images of the original records. One needs to
identify particular files that may be of interest and actually then
read the images. This may be quite some work for large cities, but
this is often how genealogy has to be done. Check whether the records
of potential interest are already on the Jewishgen Latvia database or
whether Christine Usdin has translated them
http://www.premiumorange.com/rigavitalrecords.

In reading the images many records are in roman script and can therefore
be skimmed quite readily. Where they are only in Cyrillic (or Hebrew)
then it is possible once one knows what a name looks like to simply
identify the pattern of the name. stevenmorse.org has excellent
transliteration tools to allow one to get some idea of how a name might
look in different scripts. By using his "English to Russian"
transliterator and then "Russian Print to Cursive" it is possible to get
some idea of what a name would look like written in Russian (or using
the relevant Hebrew functions in cursive Hebrew). Once a record is
found then people will help with a translation (eg through Viewmate).

The detailed content pages on the archive database are in Latvian. Using
Google language tools (which automatically pop up in Google Chrome)
webpages composed in many languages - including Latvian - can be instantly
translated in a rough way.

I remember I have seen a long time ago some lists that could correspond to

I may be mistaking.
