Louis Schonfeld's tombstone photos are an excellent idea. Thank you. Any
plans for doing the same thing for Michalovce or Tisza Ujlok cemeteries?

I am researching the GITTERMAN or GUTTERMAN family >from Baiersdorf or nearby.

The records of Jewish birth, death and marriage for Baiersdorf exist
(or at least a copy).
I've seen them in the Staatarchiv (State Archives) in Nuremberg (Nuernberg).

I don't remember when the records start, but they include the death
of my ggg-m's brother Wolf Aron LICHTENSTAEDTER (1828), and the
subsequent marriage of Wolf's cousin Wolf Nathan LICHTENSTAEDTER, and
the birth of WNL's children in the 1850s and 1860s.

WAL actually died in Leipzig (at the fair), but his passing was still
noted in the communal vital records.

In the past, my father has been told that an archive "has no further
information" - it is only when I went there myself, that I found a
thick file bursting with information.

Consulting the communal records might solve Peter's problem.

BEHMOIRAS-A Turkish Jew in the Austrian Army Buried on Mt. Olives Cemetery #germany

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners,
It is a real cross SIG saga.
A German Christian friend who resides for a long time in Israel is researching
the fate of the German and Austro-Hungarian soldiers who fell on the Palestine
front during WW1. His main research is the German Military cemetery in Nazareth.
He came of course across Jewish soldiers in both armies who are among the fallen.

He has heard about an Austrian Jewish soldier who was buried on Mount of Olives
cemetery in Jerusalem. Some called him Benmorias, others called him Behmorias.
He thought that it is some nonsense corruption. He called the Hevra Kadisha
and they had on their computer Nissan Ben Marash but that the tomb had no tomb
stone and that the Austrian authorities were also looking into that issue.

My friend tried to check the files of the war archives in Vienna but the files
there are closed for 100 years!!! Then my friend remembered seeing somewhere
that the soldier was >from Brunn (with an umlaut). His guess was that it might
be Brno in the Czech Republic.

The archive there could not find any Benmorias. A former officer in the
Austrian Battalion of the UN on the Golan Hights suggested to try the the
BEHMORIAS spelling. Well, it worked.

The archive found that the soldier was Nissim BEHMORIAS (there are different
spellings on JGFF) born in Adrianopol (The Turkish city Edrine) in 1896
to Jaques BEHMORIAS and Gracia BENBASSAT, also natives of that city.

Nissim had 4 siblings,2 of whom later moved to Sofia. It is not clear
when Nissim's family moved to Brno.
Nissim died on July 27th, 1917 >from wounds in his head in field hospital 213
in Beit Hanun (in the Gaza Strip).
Now it will be possible to erect a headstone on his grave in Jerusalem!!!
If this surname >from Adrionopol or Brno sounds familiar I'll be
glad to be contacted privately. Thanks.

JOWBR Update #ukraine

Joyce Field
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce a major update to JOWBR, JewishGen's
Online Worldwide Burial Registry, a searchable database accessible at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/, There are now 689,125
burial records in 1,525 cemeteries and cemetery sections online. The
cemetery section list can be viewed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm.

JOWBR is totally dependent on donations of material >from individual
donors and other organizations who share data with us. Every one of
these donations is important to us, but I do want to point out a few
noteworthy efforts for this update:

-Bruno Segel, Rosanne Leeson, and others entered ~13,200 records >from
Botosani, Moldavia
-Terry Lasky has submitted over 16,000 records for Colorado cemeteries
-JGS of Toronto, Canada has added to this update 13 more cemeteries
and over 8,000 records, for a total of over 29,000 records, almost
all of which have been submitted by Carolynne Veffer on behalf of the
society
-Mathilde Tagger submitted data on six cemeteries in Egypt
-Jewish Cemetery Berg Altena in Curacao, Netherlands Antilles,
probably one of the oldest Jewish cemeteries in the "New World," has
been added, containing 1,217 burial records

Many more individuals and organizations have made important
contributions of data to JOWBR, too many for us to acknowledge here,
and we look forward to adding many tens of thousands records in every
quarterly update with your help. For information on how you can
submit records, see
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm and
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/JOWBRinstructions.htm.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Nolan Altman,
JOWBR technical coordinator, at nta@pipeline.com, or me.

We are in need of Hebrew translators who can transcribe tombstone
transcriptions >from Hebrew to English. Id you can help, please
contact Nolan Altman.

The JOWBR database would not be possible without the efforts of Nolan
Altman, Warren Blatt, Michael Tobias, and JewishGen.

Shannis/Franks/Blinder Families - Ananiev #ukraine

Judy Sumray <judysumray@...>
 

Dear Members

I am researching into my mother's family who came >from Ananiev - at
least, my mother and her sisters were born there. My maternal
grandmother was Chava Blinder, who married Joseph Shannis aka Franks;
this is one of the most puzzling parts, because both my mother and her
elder sister (the middle sister did not marry) gave both surnames on
their wedding certificates, so I am not sure what was the original
name of my maternal grandfather. Chava was born in about 1865 (I
presume in Ananiev) and came to London with Joseph and their three
daughters (one of whom was my mother) in 1900/1901. I know that my
grandmother had a sister, Sonya, who also came to England, and that my
grandmother was still corresponding with one of her nieces in Russia
as late as the 1930s - I have some photographs of her niece Polya
taken in Russia in 1933, but no other information.

I am also trying to locate a Yizkor Book for Ananiev - I wonder if
anyone might have any pointers for me.

If you are able to help or to share any information, please reply to

Many thanks.

engine we can see that he married Rebecca PEIMER and that he died in 1918.
He was a goldminer, probably somewhere in the former Transvaal. They had
four children, one of whom we know was Ruth Jane NOOLL, born 1912 who
married Peretz Philip SEGAL some time before 1944.

If anyone has information on these families, please email me privately and I
