Paula Ginsburg Mystery- 1946 Tel Aviv City Directory? #general

jewishgen@juno.com <jewishgen@...>
 

I'm still looking for information on Paula GINSBURG or her family
members, having inquired here some years ago.

Did Tel Aviv publish a City Directory or its equivalent in 1946 and, if
so, would a Tel Aviv resident be willing to do a look-up for me?

To refresh memories: My maternal g-grandmother died in July, 1956.
The following letter of condolence (I never found an envelope with a
return address and my mother does not remember any Ginsburg relatives)
was addressed to my grandmother >from Paula suggesting a prior
correspondence between Paula and my grandmother, that Ginsburg was
Paula's married name, that Paula was married and the mother of a
daughter, that Paula's son died about 1943 and that Paula's mother was
still alive in 1946:

My dear cousin Ida, I have received two weeks ago your
letter of Sept. 5. 46. You can imagine that I was deeply affected about the
death of your dear mother. Though I never saw her, in her letters
were reflected her character, her purity and her goodness!

"I don't forget the letter she wrote me 3 years ago in my distress,
when we lost our son or her love and interest for my mother. I beg to
write me, what was the cause of her death. Was she ill? Did she
suffer much?

"I send to you all my heartfelt regret. It is a hard fate, to lose
a loving mother.

"So goes one after the other of our dears!"

"The $20 I have not received up to now, but I will not delay
sending this letter.

"Thank you for your offer to send some clothes for mother. If it
is possible: some Macco chamieses, some stocking (Macco) but a large
number, warm dressing gown, a raincoat, a cardigan, perhaps a suit or
overcoat for my sister's children (not black).

"Here during the war and even now after it, all materials and
clothes are still very dear. I hope you will excuse these requests,
but I should be sorry if you took all the trouble of sending things not
suitable to the persons or climate.

"Thanking you in advance and with my best regards to all of you.

"I am affectionately yours, Paula Ginsberg

"Best Greetings >from my husband and daughter."

Any clues on what apparently is a GINSBURG branch of my family
would be appreciated.

Thanks!

BERNHEIMER Families New York City 1850 - 1880 #germany

Peter Dreifuss <dreifuss1@...>
 

Dear Jewishgenners,

I am interested if anyone knows of the German origins of the
BERNHEIMER families who appear in the 1850, 1860, 1870 and 1880
Federal census records in New York City? There appear to be at least
two principal large households headed by wealthy clothing business
merchants. The families appear to be headed by Isaac and Isabella
BERNHEIMER and Simon and Rosetta BERNHEIMER. Their families were
large, and seemed to include siblings and servants.

My interest is whether they are connected to my BERNHEIMER family of
Schmieim, Baden Germany. Isaac BERNHEIMER would be very close in age
to my great, great great uncle, Isaak BERNHEIMER. The Schmieheim
Ortsippenbuch states that Isaak immigrated >from Schmieheim to America
in 1851, which is consistent with the census records for Isaac.
Isaak's brother, Henry BERNHEIM, and later my great grandfather and
his siblings emigrated to of Selinsgrove/Danville, Pennsylvania.
Their cousin was the Jewish philanthropist and American businessman,
I. W. BERNHEIM.

This relationship might be of general interest because of ties to I.
W. BERNHEIM. For me, the connection is very interesting because it
could explain my great grandfather, moving to New York >from Danville,
PA, where he first settled. My great grandfather's brothers had a
store (DREIFUSS Brothers Clothing) for many years in Selinsgrove, PA
where they brought in clothing >from New York City. Could the
clothing have come >from the BERNHEIMs' New York business? Thanks,

Pete Dreifuss Burtonsville, MD <dreifuss1@comcast.net>

Translation from German into English KOBER birth records- ViewMate #germany

Martin Fischer
 

I have posted two 19th Century birth records >from Kempen, Posen, Prussia,
that I would like to have translated into English. Most of it is in old
handwritten German, but each one has a small amount of Hebrew or Yiddish
that I would also like to have translated.

The first is the 1842 birth record of Vigdor KOBER. It is in three
overlapping images:
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=10005
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=10006
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=10007

The second is the 1845 birth record of Maria KOBER. It is in two overlapping
images:
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=10008
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=10009

I'm particularly curious to learn the relationship of the Kobers to Jacob
Dzialoszynski, whose name is mentioned in both documents.

Thanks very much for any help you might be able to provide.

Stettin Jewish and Civil Records #germany

James Bennett <Bennett@...>
 

Soon I will be seeing LDS microfilms of Stettin for the 1874-1884 period.
There were several different registration offices, and a multitude of films.

Is Standesamt I where most of the Jewish registrations took place?

Has anyone databased the Jewish matrikel and other records in Stettin?

1927 Flood in Galicia #galicia

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

According to the September 9, 1927 issue of the Jewish Chronicle
(London), there was a catastrophic flood in Galicia in 1927.
Perhaps it was what one would call a 100 year flood here in the
United States which is one which happens once in a hundred years
and tops all previous records.

Whole villages in the area of Lemberg, Przemysl, Strij, and Borislav
were destroyed. The Baron de Hirsch Foundation buildings in Galicia
were destroyed.

The entire province of Stanislav was flooded and in Lemberg, 132
villages were under water. In Czernowitz, they were completely
submerged. (Note: I have been advised that perhaps this was not the
Czernowitz in Bukovina, but another town in the province of
Stanislav.)

Ica (Jewish Colonization Association) and the Joint (Joint
Distribution Committee) were called upon for emergency assistance
and the Polish Cabinet gave 2 million zlotys for the relief of the
flood victims.

This most major and calamitous an event may have precipitated the
movement of individuals to emigrate and settle elsewhere.

It may also be a reason why records or family heirlooms or property
cannot be found >from that time period as they may have been
destroyed by the flooding.

thanks for various responses.

Geo@genealogy.net as e-mail does not seem to be working, but the URL:
http://gov.geneaogy.net
produces a site permitting a search which gives the Kreis, Bezirk, Land
and zip, not the longitude and latitude, which I think they used to do on
the e-mail query. Still this is all I need and I have bookmarked the site.

It purports to be available in a number of languages, but I found no
instructions or explanations, so very little advantage to hitting "English".

FW: Britchany, Bessarabia #romania

Mrsbrite7 <mrsbrite7@...>
 

I am searching for information about my family. The name is BECKER,
Hyman or Chaim, or Dov or Mordechai. Related family names are Bascha
WEISS nee CHAIRNOWITZ. Also possibly Aron CHAIRNOWITZ
Hersh <Herry> (possibly Herman), Sadie BECKER nee WEISS,
Barel RONIS, Rebecca BECKER nee RONIS.

They came to the NY area, circa 1911 (Bronx, Manhattan) >from Britchany,
Bessarabia and were active in the Britchaner Bessarabia Society, (or
Independent Britchaner Bessarabier B Association.) They are interred
in the Old Montifiore cemetery in Queens NY.

There is a story of a shul that (Yochanan) BECKER (or Becher) helped to
build but a Cossack who was stalking him, fatally wounded him as he was
fell asleep while guarding the shul. For lack of a better description, he
bit him in the testicles and he died a few years later >from his wound. I
estimate that occurred about 1905.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
