Re: LANES, GOLDBERG, KEIL #general

It would help to know the source of your citation re. Bertha LANES.
I cannot find any place called Seret but there was a place in pre-
Trianon Hungary called Szeretfalva, which is now Sratel, Romania.
Szered is another possibility. Kolo is probably short for kolonia,
which means community. If you are researching any place in old
Hungary your best source of info is the Hungarian SIG mail list.

From: Nauman <gnauman@...>
Dear Friends Shalom,

I need your help in locating family members of the following people
and in
particular Chaskel Mendel GOLDBERG:-

Bertha nee LANES born 15/10/1905 in Istem Szegle kolo Seret (where
or what
is this, Hungary ?) daughter of Israel Josef LANES and Sara Chana REIS
married twice:

1. Symche KEIL born 27/3/1897 in Ryglice (I believe part of Tarnow
County) on 24/10/1929, son of Mojsezs KEIL and Beila WAGSCHAL. He
perished
in the holocaust the couple had at least one son perished in the
holocaust.
Bertha survived the war and married again.

2. Chaskel Mendel GOLDBERG married after WW2.


from some non validated sources the couple Bertha and Chaskel Mendel
GOLDBERG settled in South America.

Bertha nee LANES had at least two sisters Ela born abt. 1896 and
Frieda
born abt 1897 married David KUPPERMANN born About 1894 in Kety,
Bielsko
Biala.

I have placed the same question in the JR-PL Digest with no results
as yet.

Any data or information will help and is appreciated by private
mail to

Re: Travel to Russia #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

For a taste of what travel to Russia was like in the 1950s, I can highly
recommend Truman Capote's:
"The Muses Are Heard," which details the author's 1955 trip with the cast of
the American production "Porgy and Bess," to give performances in Leningrad
and Moscow. Joined by administrative staff, writers, journalists, and Mrs.
Ira Gershwin (nee Leonore Strunsky), he details the company's three-day
journey across Poland and Russia in uncomfortable second-class sleepers,
their rundown "deluxe" Astoria hotel in Leningrad, shopping difficulties,
and the peculiarities of language barrier. He visited the nightclubs, viewed
exhibits in the anti-religious museum in the former Kazan Cathedral, was
followed in the streets by a man (most likely KGB) in dark glasses, and was
a keen observer of the conditioned reflexes of government employees in their
dealings with foreigners. For a true flavor of what Russian life was like
during those years, and what a traveler might have encountered or observed,
this book is an entertaining must-read. (Available -- at a high price
--through used-booksellers, or free through public libraries.)

INTRO - Researching HAHN, SCHLOSS, BERG (Eppelsheim), ANSPACH (Berlin), MANN (Prussia) #germany

Steve Hahn <steve@...>
 

Hello GerSig Members,
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for six months.
I consider myself to be a novice in doing German Jewish Genealogy research and
intermediate to advanced in my use of a computer and the internet.
I live in Jeffersonville, Pennsylvania, just outside of Philadelphia.
My native language is English. I have no knowlege of German or Hebrew.

The family names and towns that I am researching are:

HAHN - Eppelsheim, Rheinhessen, Hesse-Darmstadt to
Philadelphia, 1860-1861 (siblings came to Phila. in
1849 and 1856)
SCHLOSS- Eppelsheim, Rheinhessen, Hesse-Darmstadt
BERG - Eppelsheim, Rheinhessen, Hesse-Darmstadt to
Philadelphia, 1860-1861
MANN - Prussia to Philadelphia about 1851 (relatives
came to Phila. in 1870-1880)
ANSPACH - Berlin, Prussia to Philadelphia before 1850
(younger relatives came to Phila. in 1868 and
1875-1876)
LEOPOLD - Seeking any information on Henry Leopold who
is believed to have died in Germany in the Holocaust

death dates of the following people:

b. ca. 1827, Prussia, Germany
m. Caroline ANSPACH, 21 June 1854 in Phila., Pa.

unmarried sisters who immigrated to Phila. in 1870-1880)

Caroline ANSPACH (imm. bef. 1850, Phila.)
b. ca. 1827, Prussia, Germany (possibly Berlin where
her relative is born)

Re: Morris / Moritz / Hyams #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Deana K Snow <nahm@...>
 

Hello!
I really don't have any great proof of either line coming out of
Danzig. The MORRIS/MORITZinformation about being >from Danzig was in
a book titled: "History of Galveston, Texas" by S. C. Griffin. On
page 358, it reads: "His father came to America at the age of 19,
from Danzig, Germany, and enlisted in the American Army in the War
of the Revolution."

The book was written in 1931. Please keep in mind that "his father" would
have to been born much earlier to have been in the Revolution War because
if George was born in 1834 add 19 years and you get about 1853 and this
would not be the War of the Revolution but the Civil War?? So S. C.
Griffin could have the wrong generation or the wrong war. Hopefully not
the wrong country.

On the Hyams side it was a notation in "The Jews of Ireland" by Louis
Hyman saying "the family legend that Moses (Hyams) was a soldier in the
Polish army and fled to Ireland after banishment for his revolutionary
activity in defence of Polish freedom is romantic fiction." Family
papers suggest that Moses was a soldier in Poland. But the Danzig part I
would have to spend some time going though papers finding where it was
noted. Not being able to really look at read documents makes this ideal
hard to have any proof. But maybe a better look into Dublin I could have
a better chance in knowing where they were from.
