Marriage Explanation sought #general

Peter Wollinski
 

Dear Sir / Madam
It will be appreciated if an explanation can be provided for the
following family situation, as I have been unable to find documents in
the archives to explain it.

My great grandfather Wolff Wolinski married Feigelche Elias in 1879 in
Wronki Poland - per their civil marriage record.

However Vital records reveal that between 1880 and 1888, Wolff had
fathered 4 children. The same documents show that Pauline Elias was
the mother of all these children and not Feigelche. All the children
were born in Lekno which is a small village within Wagrowiec county
and close to Poznan Poland.

Other documents reveal that Pauline (born 1848) was the younger sister
of Feigelche (Born 1847).

Pauline died in Berlin in 1941 and is buried in Weissensee.

One possible explanation may be that the younger sister (Pauline) had
taken the place of her older sister (Feigelche) as the latter had
passed away soon after the marriage.

However, the archives in Pila have advised that they have not been
able to find documents which show the death of Feigelche or the
marriage of Wollf to Pauline.

Does any one have another possible explanation, or was this a custom
at the time?

Does anyone know if it was mandatory to register with the Civil
authorities all deaths and marriages at that time for the above
circumstances? Perhaps only the Jewish authorities were advised. If
this was the case than unfortunately these records would no longer
exist as a result of Nazi atrocities.

Is there somewhere else where I may be able to search for a
documentary explanation?

The other interesting observation of the documentation is that the
spelling of the surname changed >from Wolinski (recorded on the
marraige certificate to Wollinski (recorded on all documents since the
marraige). Perhaps the name change was a result of Germanization. The
family did leave the Poznan area in 1922 when it came under Polish
control and moved into Brandenburg.

Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Yours sincerely
Peter Wollinski

Parents of Yechiel and Ratse ROSEN #general

Larry Hershfield
 

In the last year, multiple family trees on various websites have
included the parents of my maternal GG Grandparents, Yechiel and Ratse
ROSEN

Ephraim and Rivka Rosen believed to be the parents of Yechiel Rosen.
Edith Salle and unnamed Soss believed to be the parents of Ratse Rosen.

As I maintain a large Rosen Family Tree, this was extremely interesting
and news to me. I wrote to a dozen people who have included these names
on their trees, none of whom could recall how they came to post those
names, or did not reply.

I do not know of a method to learn who posted first, or another way to
find the source of this. I am wondering if someone made a mistake in
establishing these connections.

I welcome any general advice or specific information about these four
people.

Thank you.

From Whence We Came - a family history #general

John Berkeley <gluckpast@...>
 

Detailed accounts of the separation, suffering and survival of
individual families, compiled mainly for the benefit of their
descendents, can often shed light on the day-to-day lives of those
around them and, as a result, prove to be of wider potential interest.
The story of the Gluck family >from Huszt in Sub-Carpathia follows the
lives of the twelve children of Baruch Gluck and Sara Berkovic and, in
so doing, encompasses an extraordinary variety of experiences.

These range >from the formation of the Free Czechoslovak Army in the
south of France and its evacuation to Britain, 'illegal' immigration
to Palestine, the sinking of the "Patria" in Haifa and imprisonment
for four years in Mauritius, the fight for survival in a Hungarian
Labour Battalion, life in the Budapest ghetto and a labour camp on an
island in the Danube, deportations to Auschwitz, selection for factory
work at Reichenbach, followed by a 'death march' and eventual rescue
in Sweden. The story concludes with the survivors reunited in the DP
camp and their early years in Israel.

It also includes an extensive range of family photographs, the
survival of which, given the circumstances, is quite remarkable.

Thanks to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC, it is
available online at https://archive.org/details/bib269204_001_001

JewishGen Independent Study Course #general

Joan Engel
 

I just finished a 15 day JewishGen Independent Study course. I've
been working on my family history for 20+ years, have amassed an
amazing amount of information and consider myself a fairly
sophisticated researcher.

During the course, my mentor helped me learn of new resources; I
revisited a few I had known about before; and most importantly, I
learned some new data analysis techniques that helped me focus my
research. I started with three objectives and achieved half of them,
but I'm not complaining because I feel much better prepared to figure
out the rest.

The course was $150 and I certainly feel I got my money's worth. When
the course is offered again, I highly recommend it to anyone who needs
help with their research.

Searching Israeli Descendants of Sara and Zvi OREN (nee Herman ZWIEBACK): daughters Michael and Dorit, Tel Aviv, Israel #galicia

Connie Malone
 

I am searching for two of my maternal first cousins, sisters Michael and
Dorit OREN in or near Tel Aviv, Israel. Any help or suggestions would
certainly be appreciated. I have tried to do the research by joining the
Israel Genealogy Research Assn (IGRA) but have been unsuccessful,
either for lack of knowing the Hebrew language or the "how to's" of the
various Israeli on-line links.

Herman ZWIEBACK/ZWIEBACH, born Josef Hirsch ZVIBACH, 18 Jul 1912,
Kuty, Kosow, Stanislawow, Poland (currently Ukraine) to Abraham and
Henny GRAU. In 1914, during World War 1 the family lived in Vienna.
Herman emigrated as a "Pioneer" to Israel in the early 1930s. There, he
married Sara, Palestine born. Their three daughters: Michael, born 1943,
Dorit, born 1946, and Tami, born 1949.

Herman and Sarah adopted new names, as Zvi and Sarah OREN. I believe
this probably occurred shortly after Palestine became the State of Israel.

The last known address for Uncle Zvi and his family was: ** Rechov
Metodila, Shikun Dan, Tel Aviv. Uncle Zvi passed away sometime around
1980 or so. Shortly after Zvi died, our families (his sisters, Rose and my
mother Zita) lost contact with his family.

Michael married and has one daughter that I know of. I do not know
Michael's married surname. Dorit married and has three children that I
know of. I do not know her married name either. Although I located Uncle
Zvi's youngest daughter, Tami, now living in Los Angeles, she never
responded to my written inquiry nor returned my phone call.

Any assistance or suggestions are appreciated to locate Michael and
Dorit, or their descendants.

Please respond privately.
