Anglicization of Binza #romania

Ben Julius <benjulius34@...>
 

Hi there

The furthest back I can get in my fathers family is to a Binza LITTMAN who
married into my family - the name of who she married we don't know.

She was born in Falticeni and died in about 1935 - buried in ENFIELD UK

The cemetery in which she is buried has a list of names here:
http://www.jgsgb.org.uk/bury02al.shtml but I cant find the name we are
looking for. Would the name have been anglicized?

Thank you,

Ben

Osann-Monzel Cemetery #germany

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

I went on-line to find any reference to a Jewish cemetery, or any
cemetery, in Osann-Monzel Germany. The International Jewish Cemetery
Project gives only a reference to a sculptor who did some interesting
things with burial stones in the area. Of particular interest is the BERMANN
family, who lived there since at least the 1730s. Any help would be appreciated.

Best, Steve Orlen Tucson Arizona <sorlen@email.arizona.edu>

INTRO-researching SWARTZ, SCHWARZ, SCHWARS - Memel and Hessen Darmstadt #germany

laureen.2@netzero.net
 

Hello GerSig,
I have been sitting at bay for awhile to see how thing work here. Hopefully
I've got it.

I live in Texas. My native language is English, and I am quite new to computers
and the Internet. I have found most of my family's records >from and after
their arrival in the U.S. but am having some real problems before then.

Right now my primary focus is on two individuals that I believe were probably
brothers. George Henry SWARTZ, born Sept 1750 in Memel, and George Henry SWARTZ,
born 1775 in Hessen, Darmstadt, Germany. I believe their father was
Heinrich Friedrich SCHWARZ. George Henry made it to the U.S. and died in
Fairfield County, Ohio in 1870. About Henry, I only Know that he was possibly
married in 1774. I have no information on Heinrich except for the name itself.

I would really like to find information on this branch of my family that
seems to have been abandoned or considered hopeless. I'd appreciate any
help I can get. My JGFF Researcher number is 342386.

KIESELSTEIN/BESENSTOCK from Sokolow living in Prague, 1912 #galicia

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

The Prague Conscriptions database is one of the most interesting
I know, with nearly 900,000 detailed records:

http://digi.nacr.cz/prihlasky2/indexen.php

I have noted quite a few Galician entries but here is the first
peddler and family I have seen listed. On 4 Sept 1912, this family
was living in Prague; the given dates are dates of birth.

The family is >from Sokolow, Rzeszow; Bezirk Kolbachow, Galicia

KIESELSTEIN aka BESENSTOCK Isak (1868)
KIESELSTEIN aka BESENSTOCK (nee KLEINMANN) Debora (1869)
KIESELSTEIN aka BESENSTOCK Ascher (1900)
KIESELSTEIN aka BESENSTOCK Inda (1903) - transcription error for Juda?
KIESELSTEIN aka BESENSTOCK Marie (1909)

see: http://tinyurl.com/4j9x98

You can also find them by entering KIESELSTEIN into the surname
field. If you enter BESENSTOCK, you get another sheet where the
family name is given as BESENSTOCK recte KIESELSTEIN.

Isak appears to have been an up-market peddler as he took his whole
family with him on his travels! As there are 18 people looking for
KIESELSTEIN on the JGFF and some specifically >from Sokolow, as well
as one BESENSTOCK researcher, this should be of interest. I note
these names are among the "Sokolow Malopolski Surnames >from 1825
to 1903" in the JRI-Poland database

Re: List of Jewish residents in Germany between 1933 and 1945 #germany

Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

Thank you Simon for alerting us to this important new source.

I assume >from its title and the number of names that the
database includes refugees and survivors. Perhaps it will also
memorialize some victims not listed in the second edition of Gedenkbuch.

Can anyone tell us the fields that are included in the new
database and the sources used to compile it? (Perhaps, among
others, the 1939 "minority census"?)

According to the German goverment press release (see Simon's
original message or tinyurl.com/residentslist) one of six
organizations that will receive copies of the list is "the
Yad Vashem Memorial Site." Can anyone confirm that the list
will be added to Yad Vashem's online database? Renee

Gudel - Gudeliai #lithuania

<< From: Susan HW Mann <susan.mann@sw-software.com>
I know this is a shot in the dark but does anyone else on this list have
relatives >from Gudel? In modern days it is Gudeliai - a tiny town on
the road >from Kovna (Kaunas) to Marijampole. >>

According to my information, the only existing vital records for Gudeliai,
in the Lithuanian State Historical Archives (LVIA), are 1819 marriages and
1815-1816 deaths. If you are interested, a $200 contribution to LitvakSIG
would probably enable us to have all of those records translated.

To contribute, go to www.litvaksig.org and click on BECOME A CONTRIBUTOR.
In case others are interested in having records translated for Gudeliai,
or any other town in Lithuania, please let me know and we will try and get
it done.

My mother's uncle (born about 1865 in Retowo Lithuania) has arrived to New
York on July 1, 1884 >from Rotterdam, Holland.

I have checked Steve Morse website and found out that on that date 2 ships
has arrived the "Saratoga" and the "Balthasar" but there is no information
about port of departure.

How can I learn which one of the two arrived >from Rotterdam? Or perhaps was
there another ship arriving on that day that the site does not list?
