GRABER/GRAEBER family of Sanok, Galicia (SE Poland) #poland

Joseph Walder <jswalder@...>
 

I am writing to ask for suggestions for archival research about my
GRABER/GRAEBER ancestors of Sanok, Galicia (now southeast Poland). Some
background follows. Sources are family oral history, JewishGen, JRI-Poland,
and family trees on Ancestry.com.

My paternal grandmother, born Feiga GRAEBER in Sanok in about 1904, was the
youngest of ten children, most of whom emigrated to the United States. Her
parents were Beile LICHTBACH (b. 1862 in Przemysl, d. 1925 in New York) and
Meyer GRAEBER (b. about 1828 in Sanok, d. about 1915 in Sanok). The 34 year
age difference between Beile and Meyer is correct and leads to a messy
situation on genealogical charts. I believe Meyer had a brother Jakob
Pincus GRAEBER (1824-1907) married to Jutte BIEGELEISEN (1819-1889).
Jakob and Jutte had a son Abraham (b. 1854 Sanok, d. 1930 New York)
who was the point of contact for the first two of my grandmother's
brothers to emigrate to the US, according to passenger manifests.
It seems likely that Meyer had other siblings, too. One of
them may have been Leib GRAEBER (1838-1918), who married Czarna
FRIBERGER (1840-1915). I also believe on grounds of a certain DNA
match that Meyer had a brother whose son Ber (or Bernhard) GRAEBER
moved to Vienna.

I believe the father of Meyer and Jakob Pincus was Hersz GRAEBER,
born in about 1800 in Sanok and married to Beile. Hersz may have had
a brother Majer GRAEBER, married to Frimit; their son Israel Leib GRAEBER
(1830-1911) was married to Chaje HOLZ (1823-1905). Israel Leib and Chaje
had a son Eisig GRAEBER (b. about 1856 Sanok?, d. 1926 Jaroslaw). Eisig
married Mirl LICHTBACH, an older sister of my great-grandmother Beile
LICHTBACH, mentioned above. Eisig GRAEBER was a figure in the Haskalah
movement as a translator and editor.

The 1900 Sanok census lists several GRAEBER families, but it is unclear
how they relate to each other and to my own direct lineage.

Finally, there are mentions of various Sanok GRAEBERs in family trees on
Ancestry and MyHeritage.

I am keenly interested in suggestions for archival research that can be
undertaken in the United States. I am perfectly happy to dive into records
written in languages other than English, but please do not recommend that
I make a trip to Poland to do archival research there. For various reasons,
that simply is not possible.

WEISZ / VERMES Family #general

Amit N
 

Hello,

I am searching for any relatives or researchers of the family headed
by Mor (Moritz) WEISZ who married Ernesztine SPITZER in Szeged. They
and their children probably changed their names later to VERMES.
Ernesztine SPITZER was the sister of my great great grandfather, which
makes me very interested in this family.
If anyone has some information regarding them, or contacts of their
relatives, I would highly appreciate.

Thank you very much,
Amit Naor

ViewMate translation request - German #general

Omri Arnon <omri@...>
 

Dear Group,

I've posted a document in German for which I need a translation. It is on
ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM72457

This is a document relating to a Synagogue seat in Hranice relating to the
Wolf family (which later emigrated to Hungary). On the right hand side page
there are several names. I am particularly interested to know what is the
relationship between them. Is Sigmund related to Jakob Israel (My G5F)? how?
Are there any detailed about the people mentioned? also if possible who are
the Wolfs mentioned on the left hand page and is there any relationship
between them.

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.
Thank you very much.

(Hungary-Spain) Spanish "Angel of Budapest" Sanz-Briz Saved 5,000 Jews #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

A Spanish diplomat, Angel Sanz-Briz, served in Budapest during World War ll
and was responsible in 1944 for saving 5,000 Hungarian Jews >from certain
death. He is known as the "Angel of Budapest". He hid 5,000 Jews by using
Spanish protection on using 200 approved passports with added letters so
that they multiplied the number permitted. He also hid them in apartment
buildings he placed under Spanish protection. The rooms were overcrowded,
people hungry and cold, and diseased. But they survived.

To read the story and how Franco's Spain never recognized San-Briz for his
bravery and how Yad Vashem recognized him in the ranks of the righteous see:
