Eisenach ship photo #general

Joan Engel
 

I have looked through all the ship list files and googled Eisenach but
have not been able to find a photo of the Eisenach. Anyone out there
have one they are willing to share?

I believe the ship sailed >from Bremen on 14 May 1913 and arrived in
Baltimore Jun 1913.

Searching the Mt. Zion Cemetry database #ukraine

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings all,
I have created a page on my website that suggests the best ways to do a
search on the Mt. Zion Cemetery database. If you are having problems with
your searches, it might pay to take a look at it. The link to this page is
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/erc-scdb.htm .
If you are looking for all the burial entries for a certain surname without
exact knowledge of where they are buried, I would urge you to search all
four available cemetery databases, i.e. those of Mts. Zion, Hebron, Carmel
and Moriah. These databases combined contain information on over half a
million burials.
I am hoping that the searchable databases for Mts. Judah and Ararat will be
created and put online before the August conference. I will let you know
when they are.
As a side note, July 1st marked the one-year anniversary of my virtual
museum website. I am proud of what I have accomplished and am thankful to
all those who have graciously have helped me along the way. I have just
revamped many pages on my site and have added new ones. I hope that you like
what I have done. The best is yet to come.

Best regards,

Let me add to the above information >from M. Griffel

About five years ago, a sefer with chidushim of R' Shimon
Zelichower, was published. Its preface contains much biographical
material. I do not have the work as it was only lent to me for a day
and its title escapes me.

What I do remember is extensive mention of the finanacial assistance
provided to the author by a cousin of mine, Mr Godel Heilpern OBM. I
rememeber Godel telling me many years ago many stories about
R' Shimon >from his sojourn in Yeshivas Chacmei Lublin. What I did
not previously know of was Godel's great practical help to this
sage.

It is my understanding that all Epstein's that are Levy, descend >from the
Benveniste family in Spain.

Those who are not Levy have changed they original surnames to Epstein in an
arbitrary way.

Am I wrong?

I wanted to thank Gregory for sharing this wonderful website with us
(<http://globus.tut.by>), and encourage others to check it out. I
accessed the home page via the Promt online translator
<http://www.online-translator.com/srvurl.asp?lang=en>, and was able
to surf throughout the site in English (well, mostly English). The
photos are all clear and bright, and they seem to have over 150
listings (photos coming soon?) of Jewish cemeteries throughout
Belarus.in addition to synagogues etc.

A tip for using the site through the online translator: Not all of
the links get translated. But if you hover your cursor over the
link, at the bottom of your screen the complete hyperlink should
appear, and it seems to be shown in English.

I have no commercial interest in the above websites.

Thanks, Gregory!

Florette,

It would not be adviced to gave up search in Ostroleka.
Perhaps thanks to the Ostroleka records for your mother-in-law, you will
locate the marriage certificate, which will give you a clue where your
father-in-law have originated from.

ULLMANN from Driesen, Devon and Australia {was Driesen} #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Anne Muir of Brisbane asks where or how to find out information on a place
called Driesen in the Empire of Germany during the period 1835+? She discovered
on obtaining naturalisation information >from the PRO UK that two of her
ancestors, William and Solomon ULLMANN came >from there before moving to the UK

In my previous posting I mentioned the two different census entries of Solomon
{England in 1881 and 1891}.

I have just checked the place name *Driesen* on Yad Vashem - there are 64 named
victims born in Driesen -all were living Germany and of these 64 victims -
there is also an ULLMANN family with PoTs submitted by a brother and a sister -
the latter writes about Driesen "damals [then] Deutschland jetzt [now] Polen;

Adolf ULLMANN was born in Driesen, Germany in 1867 to Markus and Pauline nee
HAMBURGER. He was married to Katharina nee NATHANSON [daughter of Jacques
NATHANSON and Ida nee PINCUS}. Adolf perished in 1943 in Treblinka at the age of
75. Page of Testimony submitted on 17/04/1999 by his son >from Israel. Hans

aunt, Minna, dob 16.8.1864. His sister, Chana Ida Kresch? ne ULLMANN >from
Jerusalem has contributed PoTs for both her parents and many other family members
too.

Katharina Ullmann was born in 1879 it is likely her children are well into their
nineties. I do hope they are still alive as they might have more first-hand
knowledge of Driesen and perhaps they belong to the same ULLMANN family Anne is
researching. Solomon may well have been an uncle/Gt-Uncle of Adolf!
