My mother-in-law grew up at Karmelicka 24. She is no longer alive, so I
can't give you first hand information.
I know her father was already listed in the 1923 commercial directory at
this address, and after his death, her brother is listed in the 1935/6,
1936/7, 1938 and 1939 directories together with the phone number.
Some of these directories are on microfilm at the NYC public library. I
remember seeing a picture of the street and they were apartment buildings.
There was also a church on the corner, if I am not mistaken.
The street was part of the Ghetto and if it existed today it would lead
approximately to the Warsaw Ghetto monumnet.

Landsman Plots in Odessa Cemetery #ukraine

I recently learned that a Jewish cemetery plot located in Odessa is for
those >from Lyubar - which is not located anywhere near Odessa, rather in the
Zhitomir area. This sounds similar to landsmanshaften plots in American
cemeteries. Is anyone familiar with landsman-type cemetery plots in Ukraine
located in other cities? Is there any way to lookup where else these plots
are located for each shtetl?

JGSGW - June 11 - Joint Meeting with JGSMD #general

JGSGW <jgsgw_dc@...>
 

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington will hold a joint meeting
and potluck luncheon with JGSMD

on Sunday, June 11, 2006
at 1:00 PM
at the
Potomac Community Center
11315 Falls Road
Potomac, MD

This is a members-only event and will include the Installation of Officers
for JGSGW for 2006-7.

Guest speaker: for the event will be

Schelly Talalay Dardashti,
noted Jewish genealogy journalist and President of JFRA Israeli
Genealogy Society. Her topic will be
"Making Connections: Every Genealogist's Dream."

Schelly knows first-hand how leads to information about one's ancestors can
come >from the most unexpected places. In the midst of one talk in Israel, as
she was answering a question about the myth of name changes, when an elegant
Indian woman in the front row broke in, "You know, the Menashe in Bombay
were Dardashti." In shock, she replied, "Don't move. We will talk later."
And they did, until 2.30 AM; determining that her husband's grandfather was
the missing brother of Schelly's husband's grandfather. We pieced together a
story of four wives, the Baghdad branch moving to Bombay, and added 400
descendants to the tree.

When she first broached the concept of a genealogy column to the Jerusalem
Post in 1999, the editor asked "Who's interested in dead people?" Following
the initial appearance of It's All Relative (IAR), which ran twice-monthly
through last year, a slew of emails, letters and faxes proved that the
audience was large. With online exposure, international readers' letters and
comments jumped exponentially.

Schelly Talalay Dardashti is a native New Yorker now living in Tel Aviv. She
is a freelance journalist and Jewish genealogy contributor for
www.ynetnews.com. She is a member of the Association of Professional
Genealogists (APG) and American Jewish Press Association (AJPA). Credits
include JTA, Reform Judaism, Outlook, NGS News, Avotaynu, many North
American Jewish publications. Schelly co-teaches two online Jewish genealogy
classes (Ancestry.Com/My Family.com). She taught Jewish genealogy courses
abroad, speaks in Israel/abroad to community groups/genealogy societies,
hands-on Jewish genealogy workshops including a Farsi-language program.
Her credits include presentations at annual conferences: of the International
Association of Jewish Genealogy societie in London, Toronto, Washington and
Las Vegas, and is part of the Teaching Genealogy to Adults panel at this
summer's New York convention. .

dear Danzigers,
I have been researching for some time for the hospital records of Arpad
LOSCH, born 1897 in Budapest. He was a patient at the hospital in
Kocoborowo, Poland in (suburb of Gdansk) 1939. He was my father.
Starting Sept. 22,1939, as the war actives were going on they started to
take out with trucks,patients under escort of the SS with the the pretext
of transfering patients and those needing care to other hospitals.
First men, then women and children to the SZPREGAWSKIE FORERST where they
were murdered, shot to death. Also in this forest were thousands of people
from Gdansk who were arrested by the nazis and shot. All were buried in
mass graves.

On the 22 july,1941, 500 patients were taken by train to Arsdorf, Pirna
Sonnenstein in Saksony where they were killed in gas chambers very soon
afterwards. The number of patients who remained were constantly
dercreasing . mortality; the main reason was hunger. Polish patients were
given minimal rations of food.

The documents concerning the transport of these persons were sent to
Berlin. I've been VERY unsuccessful in locating these records.

In Oct,2002, my husband and I traveled to Gdansk, to the SZPEGAWSKIE FOREST.
The cab driver knew exactly where to take us. As we reached a clearing
there is a large old sign .(in need of repair that states in 3 languages)"

On this trip we also visited the National city archives, I had Emailed them
prior. No luck for what I was looking for. Some of the old city records
are now kept in Gydia. The office is about to close for the day and I
persuaded them to make a formal request >from Gydia archives if they had
records for ARPAD Losch. About 1 year later they responded that they did
not have the records that i was seeking.

I hope this inf. helps you in your search.

Date: Sun, 28 May 2006 23:55:50 EDT
Hello Danzigers,

I have reason to believe >from family lore that my great grandfather
Froim LANGUS son of Srol and Bejla DANOWSKY was living in Gdansk around
the time WW2 broke out. Prior to that, he lived both in Rajgrod and
Grajewo, Poland (Lomza Gubernia) as well as Przerosl or Filipow (Suwalki
Gub).
He would have been about 60+ years old. Froim's wife was Dwejra GABELMAN
daughter of Eliasz and Ruchel FAJNTUCH. She died well before the war.

I was told Froim tried to leave Gdansk, but was too late and in fact sent
a
postcard to the family in Cleveland, Ohio that said, "sorry I will miss the
wedding, but it's too late to come." That was code, because there was no
wedding and he was letting the family know it was impossible to leave
Europe.
He was not heard >from again, so it's assumed he was murdered in the Shoah.
I'm hoping a member of my family will have a copy of this postcard, but so
far no luck finding it.

I read with interest Logan Kleinwaks email in this SIG about the Gdansk
Pinkas HaKehillot. He mentioned there were about 395 Jews who were
deported >from Danzig to the "General Government" and 200 inhabitants of
old age homes who were deported to Theresienstadt.

My question to the group is whether there is a list published anywhere
about
the 200 inhabitants of the old age homes; the name of the homes; the 395
Jews who were deported and details about their transport to
Theresienstadt.

I'm also curious why they would have been sent to Theresiendstadt, given
it's a lot further away than Auschwitz or Treblinka.

Thank you,

Emanuel LASKER - mathematician and chess world champion #germany

isak@bm.technion.ac.il
 

Dear GerSig members
I am trying to establish the genealogy of 2 of the LASKER family,
Emanuel LASKER (1868-1941), the mathematician and chess world champion
and of Edward LASKER (1885-1976), an American and world chess master.
Emanuel Lasker was born in Berlinchen (now Barlinek in Poland) to the
cantor Adolf Lasker. He was the brother-in-law of the Elsa
LASKER-SCHUELER. Edward was born I think in Breslau, and emigrated to
the US after WWI. Both of them, and also Eduard LASKER (1829-1884), the
Prussian politician, were presumably descendants of Meir HENDLIS,
son-in-law of Itzik Goldes of Lask. The early genealogy of the
descendants of Itzik Goldes is described in the book "Ir Lask
Ve'Chachameiha" by Pinchas Zelig Gliksman. So far I could not find the
exact lineage of Emanuel and Edward LASKER. There is a book: Helmut
Lasker and Rabbi M. Oppenheim, "Darstellende Genealogie der Familie
Laser", Berlin ?(probably 1930s), Leo Baeck Institute, New York, which I
have never seen. However, I do not think that it contains any
information concerning these two Laskers (Emanuel and Edward). Does
anybody have any idea where else I could look for more info ?

Any help will be greatly acknowledged

Israel and Hannah STERN, Cincinnati, 1880 #germany

Johanna Voss <joh@...>
 

Hello GerSig,
I need your help.
I am searching for Israel STERN and his family, who emigrated to the
United States some time between 1852 and 1857.
Now I found a record of the United States Census of 1880 , where a
Israel STERN appears, who might be the one, I am looking for.

This is what I found in the record:

Israel STERN, born 1824 in Germany (birthdate matches)
Hannah STERN, born 1842 in Germany (name of his wife is different, but
perhaps his 1st wife died.)
children:
Kauffman STERN, born 1854 in Germany (name of son matches; he also is
to old to be Hannahs son)
Isabelle STERN born 1861, Ohio
Josephine STERN born 1864, Indiana
Chas STERN born 1868, Ohio
Louis STERN born 1874, Ohio
Eddie STERN born 1877, Ohio

In 1880 the family lived in Cincinnati, Hamilton, Ohio

This is what I know about "my" Israel STERN:

Israel STERN, born February- 10-1824 in Stammheim/ Hesse
son of Kaufmann and Jachet STERN

married Betta Meier (Meyer) born 1834 in Altenstadt/Hesse
children: Kaufmann, born 1853 in Altenstadt - Saara, born 1857 in Altenstadt

Israel STERN probably was a butcher

about his emigration I have two contradictory informations:
1. He and his family emigrated in 1852
2. They moved away in 1857

Does anybody of you know something about this STERN family or is
related to them?
Or can help me to find out more about the family in Cinncinati?
I will be grateful for any advice or information. Kind regards,

German SIG #Germany Israel and Hannah STERN, Cincinnati, 1880 #germany

Johanna Voss <joh@...>
 

Hello GerSig,
I need your help.
I am searching for Israel STERN and his family, who emigrated to the
United States some time between 1852 and 1857.
Now I found a record of the United States Census of 1880 , where a
Israel STERN appears, who might be the one, I am looking for.

This is what I found in the record:

Israel STERN, born 1824 in Germany (birthdate matches)
Hannah STERN, born 1842 in Germany (name of his wife is different, but
perhaps his 1st wife died.)
children:
Kauffman STERN, born 1854 in Germany (name of son matches; he also is
to old to be Hannahs son)
Isabelle STERN born 1861, Ohio
Josephine STERN born 1864, Indiana
Chas STERN born 1868, Ohio
Louis STERN born 1874, Ohio
Eddie STERN born 1877, Ohio

In 1880 the family lived in Cincinnati, Hamilton, Ohio

This is what I know about "my" Israel STERN:

Israel STERN, born February- 10-1824 in Stammheim/ Hesse
son of Kaufmann and Jachet STERN

married Betta Meier (Meyer) born 1834 in Altenstadt/Hesse
children: Kaufmann, born 1853 in Altenstadt - Saara, born 1857 in Altenstadt

Israel STERN probably was a butcher

about his emigration I have two contradictory informations:
1. He and his family emigrated in 1852
2. They moved away in 1857

Does anybody of you know something about this STERN family or is
related to them?
Or can help me to find out more about the family in Cinncinati?
I will be grateful for any advice or information. Kind regards,

INTRO- researching VALFER - Friesenheim,Germany #germany

Leia Jaffa <leiajaffa@...>
 

Hello GerSig
I have been doing genealogy research for about 5 years, but I am still a bit
of a novice, particularly with the Internet.
I live in London. With the help of family members and oral history, I have
traced my maternal ancestors - GEISMAR, Breisach; WEIL ,Kippenheim
BRAUNSCHWEIG-BECK, Loerrach, and with the help of the wonderful Werner Frank,
have linked into his family tree going back to the Maharam of Rothenburg.

However, I have not been so fortunate with my paternal ancestors.
My paternal grandmother was Bertha SCHMIDT >from Mannheim(1872-1949).
My paternal grandfather Isaac VALFER(1865-1940) and his family were wine
manufacturers and merchants in Gengenbach, Baden,but my ggrandfather Jakob
Hirsch Zvi VALFER originated >from Friesenheim, Baden.

Jakob HirschVALFER is buried in the cemetery in Offenburg,Baden,(d.o.b.
1837? d.o.d 1904) where it states that his wife was Hannchen Bloch. His
Hebrew name is given as Jakob Zvi ben Ahorn (sic) Arie. I assume that Ahorn
Arie VALFER is buried in Schmieheim cemetery, and would have been born
around 1807.

My grandfather had several brothers and sisters, Anna,Sophie, Ludwig, Adolf
and Sigmund. I am in contact with 3 branches of the family, but cannot trace
a 4th branch , and would like to make contact with them. They emigrated to
Johannesburg in South Africa. My father's cousin Lina (Linnchen) VALFER
married a WEIS or WEISS, she had a daughter Fanny who married a BORMANN in
Johannesburg in 1947.

I have been unable to trace any further information about my gggrandfather
and his family history.

The family names that I am researching are: GEISMAR , Breisach; WEIL, Kippenheim;
BECK , Loerrach; BLOCH, Kirchen;
but particularly VALFER, Gengenbach and Friesenheim; SCHMIDT , Mannheim

Any help with the information I am searching for would be gratefully appreciated.
Best wishes

Oops: Dollarhide book is about US censuses only #general

Nick Landau in London kindly brought it to my attention that there is no
reference to non-US censuses - particularly English or UK censuses.

How or why I mentioned English census info I have no idea, The fact that I
sent it at 3AM may have had something to do with it. :-) Anyway, thank you
Nick for bringing it to my attention. Mea culpa. My apologies to the list.
