INTRO: Seeking Rosalie FRANK and her family from Glenhausen also EPSTEIN, WALLACH & ROSENFELDER #germany

Rachael Bickhardt <rbickhardt@...>
 

Helllo GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research on and
off for about 5 years. I consider myself a beginner in doing German
Jewish Geneology research.

I live on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City.

My native language is English and I also know a bit of German and
Hebrew, although I understand much more than speak or read. I do have
some difficulty reading the old German script.
I consider myself advanced in using a computer. My experience in using
the internet is extensive.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of my maternal
and paternal grandparents, and of my maternal and paternal great
grandparents, but only the year of my great-great grandparents' death.

My primary research goals now are to find out:

1. My father's family is >from the Frankfurt am Main area. I am
researching my great grandmother, Rosalie FRANK and her family. They
come >from Gelnhausen. I know that she had at least 3 sisters, Berta
EPSTEIN, Sidomie WALLACH and Recha ROSENFELDER.

Here is what I do know:

Her parents were Hermann FRANK and Fanni FRANK, nee STERN. Hermann
FRANK died in 1914, his wife in 1928.

I do not have a JGFF Researcher ID number. ** [see below]

Stuck: Jacob LEWIN birth Record #warsaw #poland

Marjorie Geiser
 

Hi all,

I THOUGHT when I found the marriage record for my grandfather's
parents, that it would be an easy path to the record of his birth. But
noooo.

My grandfather was Jacob Levine (Lewin on his parents' marriage record
in Warsaw), and we have his date of birth as 10 Apr 1902.

His father's name was Isaac (Icek) Lewin and his mother's is Sura
Telca Zylbernagel (in US, it was Silbernagel, and Silver).

I have searched JewishGen, JRI-Poland, Ancestry.com, Family Search. I
have found when he came to the US, which was 1906. But I can't find
the record of his birth, nor the record of his two older sisters,
Elizabeth, born ~ 1898, and Helena, born 1900.

One more thing that might impact this: Although on all my
grandfather's records, it has his place of birth as Warsaw, when he,
his sisters, and mother came to the US, she had listed Grodno was
where they were coming from. But that hasn't helped, either.

Thank you for ANY help/suggestions anyone might have!

Re: Payment to bank in Rzeszow for archives request #general

Joachim Mugdan
 

Rod MacNeil asked about how to send a small amount of zloty to the National
Bank of Poland branch in Rzeszow.

There are numerous online payment services that will transfer the amount
from a Polish bank and charge your credit card. Methods, conditions,
exchange rates and fees differ considerably; some services offer a first
transfer for free. An Internet search for 'international money transfer
service' or the like will lead you to a number of surveys and comparison
charts.

A bank transfer >from abroad (even within SEPA, the Single Euro Payments
Area) is not advisable because the National Bank of Poland may charge a fee
for receiving the money so that the archive does not get the full amount.

The best solution is to open an account with a Polish bank that doesn't
charge any fees for online transactions - but you have to do that in person.
(The IAJGS conference in Warsaw last summer was a good opportunity to do
that.)

Re: "Vermugens von Juden" #general

Joachim Mugdan
 

In a message with the subject "Vermugens von Juden", George Fogelson asked
where one can find the declarations of assets (Vermo"genserkla"rung) that
German Jews had to submit in 1938. He wrote "I contacted the Berlin Archives
and they do not have copies" but did not specify which archive he tried. The
Landesarchiv Berlin (http://landesarchiv-berlin.de/ , only in German) has
many such declarations in the collection "B Rep. 092
Landesfinanzamt/Oberfinanzdirektion Berlin (OFD)".

BELSON/PARETSKY Inquiry #general

Personal <jbeer3228@...>
 

Hello. I am resending an inquiry about the Belson family >from Bookline, MA. When
searching my grandmother's name, Sarah Rose Belson Britt, an inquiry >from Elias
Savada came up. He was also searching on behalf of his aunt for information
about David Belson, whom I believe was Sarah's brother. I believe we're searching
for information about the same family.

Sarah Rose Belson happily married my grandfather, Michael Joseph Britt
(Catholic), however was disowned by her wealthy family in Brookline, MA
apparently due to his religion or his humble means according to her last
surviving son, now 90. Sarah had several siblings including a sister, Mae, who
would come to visit her in Concord, MA and later Acton in the late 1930s.
Happily married, Sarah and Michael (dedicated, diligent, and handsome husband)
raised nine children in West Concord, MA (later Acton), the last of whom was my
father, James, born in 1930 and died Christmas 2015. Their children include
Mary, Joseph, Bobby, Margie, Mabel, Doris, Helen, Eddie (alive), and James.
They all lived full lives except for Bobby who was killed in action in Holland
at just 22 years leaving his wife Dorothy and a baby girl. Bobby volunteered to
join the 501st Airborne Division (Screaming Eagles) during WWll. Sarah never
got over this loss. Sarah, surrounded by several of her family members, lived
until 88 years passing in 1974.

I would appreciate any I formation about Sarah Rose Belson's family including
her parents' names, country of origin (which might possibly have been St.
Petersburg, Russia), and living relatives.

Sincerely,
Jessica Britt Beer

MODERATOR NOTE: Elias Savada posted the original inquiry to the JewishGen
Discussion Group in October 1997. Please send any contact information privately.
