Need help in finding my Grand Uncle #general

HERBERT SIEGEL
 

I have been researching the connection of Lena SIEGEL to my family for
the past several years. In the 1905 New York census she is listed as
the sister in law of my grandfather Solomon SIEGEL. Her age is 19
born about 1886 in Poland and arrived in New York about 1901.
Based on this I began to test out possible husbands >from the next 40
years of census reports. These husbands would be a brother of my
grandfather Solomon Siegel and have the same parents (Louis Siegel and
Rose Sprintzer). Nothing offers solid proof of a connection. The
information >from the census yielded 10 possible husbands for Lena. I
have found no immigration records for her or Solomon. (believe they
may have entered at Castle Gardens and the records were destroyed).

If you can provide any information on the above questions it would
open a vast family tree connection for our families. The trees on
Ancestry.com for the several of the possible husbands and the main
Siegel tree is Siegel Family Tree. All are public trees and have
no one listed as private.

I sincerely appreciate any information you have and thank you for
taking the time to read my message. Reply directly to my email.

This week's Yizkor boor excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake
 

The Evacuation >from Ksiaz >from the Yizkor book of Miechov, Charsznica and Ksiaz
(near Krakow in Poland) recounts the first stages of how the Germans and their
henchmen uprooted and eventually destroyed Jewish communities that had existed for
generations. It started with the Germans demanding that Jews hand over their
valuables and belongings, while Christian neighbors hovered close by looking
for bargains among the things that soon-to-be-banished Jews left behind. Even worse
was the fact that the herding of Jews into wagons and carts to be taken away >from
their homes occurred on the Sabbath. The pain was enormous, unbearable. Not because
of the property and belongings left behind did the heart ache, but the desecration
of the Shabbat that they were forced to perform and for the fact that we were
forced to leave the town in which Jews had resided for tens of generations.

Looking for Vera- wartime romance #general

zionsharav
 

Was your grandmother's name Vera? Or maybe your great-gandmother's?

I am seeking descendants of a dashing Czech Jewish flyer whose WW 2 romance
with "Vera" in England resulted in the birth of a child probably
around 1946. After the War, he went to Canada where she wrote to him
at least once. We have a few more details- his name and some relevant DNA results.

Seeking Contact with Relatives of Hinde Wank #general

Joyce Eastman
 

I am trying to make contact with Mason Wank, who has a tree on Ancestry.com
as well as Geni.com which shows Hinde Wank. It is my belief that Hinde
Wank, born about 1875 in Brody, Poland, is a possible sister of my
grandfather, Salomon Wolf Wilder and his two brothers.
According to the Brooklyn Census Hinde Wank was also known as Annie Wank as
well as Hilda Wang. Her husband was Jacob Wank. Hinde Wank came to the US
in 1906 on the Blucher out of Hamburg into the Port of NY with her children.
Her husband, Jacob, arrived in the US in 1903.

Any assistance you can provide in locating relatives of Hinde Wank or Mason
Wank would be most appreciated. My goal is to find information regarding
Hinde Wank's parentage. I have looked online at various databases including
Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org and was unable to find any burial records
for Hinde Wank. I have been in contact with Hinde Wank's granddaughter, but
she has very little information and does not know much about her grandmother
at all. Hinde Wang lived in Brooklyn, NY in 1933 at 154 Rockaway Parkway,
living with her daughter Vivian and son Max according to the 1930 census.
The 1933 city directory for Brooklyn lists her as Annie Wank, widow of
Jacob, living with Vivian and son Max.

Any regarding the above information for Mason Wank and Hinde/Annie Wank or
her death record/parentage would be most appreciated.

1949 Queen Elizabeth Missing Manifest #general

jeremy frankel
 

Dear Genners,

I've run into a strange problem I've not encountered before. I've emailed a couple
of people but no-one's really any the wiser.

I'm researching a married couple who live in England. >from a search in FindMyPast I
saw they had taken two voyages >from England to New York, in 1949 and 1952. These
were the UK Outbound databases.

Then I searched for them in the NY Passenger Arrivals database, and found their
entry in 1952, but not for 1949.

I ended up scrolling through every page in the NARA microfilm (#7713) in both
Ancestry and FamilySearch, and discovered that the only pages scanned were for all
1350 crewmembers. No passengers! And this was on the Queen Elizabeth!

Has anyone ever come across something like this? As the original manifests don't
exist any more, it seems as if there is nothing else one can do. I had hoped to
learn who they might be going to.

See you in Cleveland!

Yizkor Book Project, May 2019 #warsaw #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I will start off by noting that this will probably be my last Yizkor
Book monthly report. I will be shortly stepping down as Yizkor Book
Project Manager and my place will be taken over by Binny Lewis. Having
being involved in this project >from around 1999 and leading it >from
2009, it would seem the time is ripe for me to allow someone with new
ideas and energy to take on the project. In the meantime, I will still
be around to help Binny acclimatize to the tasks involved.

I would sincerely like to thank each and every person who has
contributed in some way to the continued success of the Yizkor Book
Project. I am perpetually in awe of the willingness of people to devote
their time and energy to help out in some way to move the various
projects along. I am quite sure that Binny will continue to receive
the same level of support and dedication which will enable the project
to further grow and develop.

As a parting "gift", I am pleased to let you know that the complete
translation of the Wyzkow, Poland Yizkor book is now online. Our
grateful thanks go out to Howard Orenstein who has led this project
from its outset and has untiringly followed through with this project
to its ultimate goal.

Other than that, I would like to note that a number of new Translation
Projects have recently been setup for the books of the following
communities:

- Augustow, Poland
- Skalat, Ukaine
- Zinkiv, Ukraine

The support we need to see these books translated is, naturally,
financial and if you are able to assist in that direction with any
amount, please make your donation on our JewishGen-erosity page (link
below) to the project you wish to support.

Now, before letting you know about the updates and additions, I do wish
you and your families a Shavuot Sameach or a Happy Shavuot.

Research in Warsaw archives AND access to LDS films NOT digitized #warsaw #poland

Joel weiner
 

BACKGROUND: I have spent many years researching my ENDEWELT folks in
Warsaw. I have data on several hundred individuals >from the early
1800s to the Holocaust.

However, data on my direct ancestral line ends with my
great-grandfather (Mojsche Endervelt b.1878) who died in New York
City. His Death Certificate has his father's name as "Jacob." In all
my research, I have not found any Jacob/Yacov/etc. of the right age.

Mojsche and his wife Golda Fishman/Fiszman were married in Warsaw
1897/98. I have not found any records on familysearch or jewishgen for
that family.

QUESTIONS:
1. Have all of the 19th century Jewish records in the Warsaw Archives
been copied by the LDS?
2. If not, are they accessible to a researcher I would hire there?
2. I see in the LDS catalog that there are films listed as "Granite
Mountain Record Vault." How does one get to view those films not yet
on-line? Specifically, film 106421224.
3. Any other suggestions for this brick wall?

TIA,
Joel
