Re: Need help to find the book: "Juden in Bedburg an der Erft" #germany

Steven Marc Jaron sjaron@gmail.com asked for help obtaining a copy of
a Jewish Community History book.
"Juden in Bedburg an der Erft" by Gerd Friedt.
This title isn't included in the
list of such books at the GerSIG Website:
https://www.jewishgen.org/GerSIG/communities.htm

===============

It looks as if this book was self-published, so it may not be for sale
on sites like Amazon. Also, it was published in 1998, 20 years ago, so
it may be sold out. However, you might want to contact some of the
libraries listed on Worldcat.org as owning this book to see if they
can give you the address >from which they ordered it. If you aren't
familiar with WorldCat, contact me and I'll give you information about
searching it.

Peace, Christine Crawford-Oppenheimer Hyde Park, NY christine3cats@gmail.com

[upper West Side Manhattan] NYC High School 1905 #usa

Jerry Zeisler <jzeisler@...>
 

Hi,
I'm trying to determine which high school my grandfather and siblings
might have attended in New York City in 1905. They lived at 138 W96 st.
in Manhattan. Does anyone know of any maps that would show the locations
of high schools in the area? Or maybe your ancestor lived nearby and you
know which one they attended?

Thank you for any guidance you can provide.

OPPENHEIMER from Steinbach am Glan, Pfalz #germany

Eric Mack
 

Three weeks ago, I stumbled on an entire branch of my wife's family that we
hadn't known about.

I was looking in the index to the Chicago Sentinel for any information
about her grandmother, Augusta BIRKNER, nee OPPENHEIMER, when I saw a 1922
death notice for a Jacob OPPENHEIMER who had lived in Iowa, but had died
in Augusta's hometown, Steinbach am Glan, Germany.

In the past three weeks, I discovered that numerous OPPENHEIMER
relatives settled in Iowa before 1880.

If anyone else is researching this family, please contact me.

Need help to find the book: "Juden in Bedburg an der Erft" #germany

Steve Jaron
 

Hello fellow Gersiggers,

This may be more for those that live in and near Germany but I was
wondering if anyone would be able to help me acquire this book:

"Juden in Bedburg an der Erft" by Gerd Friedt.

Amazon in the US doesn't have it and I'd like to add it to
my library as long it's not too expensive. Thanks in advance! Steve

Re: Where to deposit testimony #general

Mara Fein, PhD, CG <mfein@...>
 

John, I would suggest that you contact either the United States Holocaust
Museum in Washington, D.C. or the Shoah Foundation at the University fo
Southern California (founded by Steven Spielberg) which specializes in
Holocaust Testimonies and does wonderful work.

Good luck!
