WEIL, Eschwege to Capetown and Dessau; #germany

Reuven Mohr
 

Dear GerSIG,

a new branch opened up on my WEIL tree lately, and FTJP has no results:

Heinrich WEIL, born 29 Oct 1845 in Frankenthal, Palatinate, my
great grandfather's brother, had a family unknown to me 'till this week.

He married Henriette KATZENSTEIN, (b. 20 Feb 1849 in Eschwege) and
they had children Eduard (b.1876 in Ludwigshafen) and Oscar/Oskar
(b.1877 in Ludwigshafen). In 1878 they moved to Eschwege, Hesse, where
Ernst was born in 1880; Ernst moved back to Mannheim in 1899.

Eduard married Hedwig GOLDMANN (b.1884 Eschwege) and they had sons
Edgar and Alfred. Both later emigrated to Capetown, SA.

Oskar/Oscar married Eva LEVY (b.1891 Dessau) and they had Susi Amalie
and Paul Helmut. In 1921 the family moved >from Eschwege to Dessau.

I'd appreciate any additional information about this family.

Regards, Reuven Mohr Jerusalem, Israel reuven.mohr@gmail.com

Hi All,

For those of you with an interest in the tombstone photos >from the
Mattersburg Jewish cemetery that are being posted on the Austrian Jewish
Museum blog, I have started to annotate the ones of the people that Yitzchok
Stroh and I have researched. Other people have begun to post comments too.

News of deportations and survivors #general

John Berkeley <gluckpast@...>
 

I have three questions.

First, can anyone please tell me when news of the deportations from
Hungary in 1944, and in particular >from Chust and surrounding area
from mid-May to early-June, is likely to have become generally known
in England, beyond the inner workings of the British Government and
the military High Command?

Second, when would the names of individual Auschwitz survivors have
first begun to be widely available in England?

Finally, is it likely that members of the armed services based in
England would have had special access to information, allowing them to
learn of both the deportations and receive details of survivors before
they became more widely known?

The 1910 birth certificate of my grandmother's brother says his
father's place of birth was "Postiff, Vilna". Does anyone know
what town this could be close to Vilnius? The family name is
Swidler; the original name may have been Swidlewski
or something similar. My great-grandfather was born in
1878 and his first name was Max. His wife was Nettie
Zeplowitz also born in 1878, presumably in Postiff.

"Vilna" relates not only to the city but also to Guberniya (Province).
The town you are searchng for is most probably Pastavy in Belarus,
at 5507 2650. The town was once located in Vilna Guberniya, and
one of its alternative names in Yidish was Postov.

Re: SAPIRSTEIN: Hamburg >USA, July 1987. Family Mystery #general

Hi Lynne,

Have you tried looking at the port of Portland, Maine? My family
arrived there in 1900. This information is on Ancestry.com. For
some reason, Steven Morse does not (last time I checked) have his port
on his search site.

<<Oral family history has always been that their mother, Dvora Walzer
Sapirstein, followed later and was not happy in US, took the younger
sister (Anya) back to Russia. I have searched Ellis Island,
Philadelphia,Boston, and Baltimore arrivals and cannot find Dvora's
arrival in US which would have been sometime after July 1897>>

Good luck!

If you are a member of the JGSNY, you get free access to all the
wonderful material at Jewishdata.com. The database currently contains
probably 60-70 percent of the burials of Washington Cemetery.
Also the gravestones in Hebrew are not translated into English,
so they become ?, ?. Still a great resource. Also, if you subscribe
and find a photo of a gravestone you are researching, increase and
decease the URL address (it always ends in a number) and you can
view the nearby stones for possible other relations to the original.

Biata Poland #general

Biata is probably Biala, which when written correctly in Polish has
an L with a bar through it. This barred L is often mistaken for
a t by people unfamilar with Polish. You'll probably now find you
have more than enough towns to choose from:-)
