Re: George and Barbara BERNATH - Vienna #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Joe Hirshfeld of Portage, MI writes that he is seeking
information on brother and sister George b.1937 and
Barbara BERNATH b. 1938 (Barbara may have had a
married name in 1968). George and Barbara arrived in
the US in 1968 with their mother Rosa (maybe Rose)
from Austria and settled in California. Rosa had been
married to Andreas BERNATH, but they were divorced.

I have been tracking this family for Joe in Vienna in
a Sherlock Holmes-type process which has developed day
by day, and now have the news he is looking for.

Andreas BERNATH was born 9. Oct. 1891 in Erlau,
Hungary and died in Vienna on 6 March 1959. He had
married Rosa BERNATH nee BAUER (born 16 April 1898 in
Vienna) in Budapest at the Staatliches Matrikenfuhrung
Bezirk IV and divorced in Vienna on 6. Dec. 1949.

Their children, Georg (dob 19 July 1937) and Barbara
(dob 14.Dec 1938) were born in Hungary. Barbara also
known as Betty, a mannequin, married Joseph LICATE,
Sergeant in the US Army in Standesamt Wien-Alsergrund
(Nr 481-1955) on 24 Aug. 1955 and on 19.4.1960 they
lived at [address redacted by moderator per JewishGen
guidelines] in Hollywood 27 California.

I have sent Joe the exact address. Hopefully, we will
find living family members as tragically many of the
HERSCHFELD-BAUER family of Galicia and Vienna were
murdered in the holocaust.

Yizkor Book Monthly Report for May 2006 #austria-czech

Joyce Field
 

May 2006 has been a very busy one for the Yizkor Book Project. We
have one new online "book" (really, a collection of original essays),
four new books started, seven new entries, and 12 updates. All
yizkor book material is available at the Index page at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html. If you are not
familiar with this site, notice at the top of the page, just under
the JewishGen logo, is a list of sites you can access directly by
clicking on the name--for example, Database, Necrology Index, or
Infofiles. There is a wealth of information directly accessible >from
this one page with just a click. Also note that the yizkor material
is listed under four different categories. New material is flagged
for easy identification.

This month we have begun a new online collection, called "The
Terrible Choice: Some Contemporary Jewish Responses to the
Holocaust," at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/terrible_choice/terrible_choice.html
. Melvyn Conroy, the author, writes: "This collection of brief
essays is an attempt to portray the character and personality of a
number of the prominent Jews of occupied Europe, and the manner in
which they responded to the unique circumstances of the Shoah."
Thus far, we have eight essays online.

New books:

-Biecz, Poland
-Indura, Belarus
-Klobuck, Poland
-Transylvania, Hungary:

Frequently I remind our readers that a number of yizkor books are
being translated by professional translators. The list is at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23.
You can make a needed donation to these books and to JewishGen at
this site. Remember that JewishGen provides all the infrastructure
to make the Yizkor Book Project available to everyone at no cost, but
there is a cost to providing this material online and we hope that
our readers will generously support JewishGen, making their
appreciation known in this way.

At this time i want to thank once again our wonderful "international"
Yizkor Book Project volunteers who so efficiently get the
translations online: Lance Ackerfeld (Israel), Max Heffler (U.S.),
and Osnat Ramaty (Germany). They are a remarkable team. And to all

Searching family names need help! #austria-czech

Debbie Jurblum <debbie_jurblum@...>
 

Dear Genners,
My name is Debbie JURBLUM and I have been researching my family tree for
many years, seriously for the last five yet I am a novice.
My family tree consists of around 600 people and all have been found by word
of mouth except for about ten people which I have just recently found on
Jewish Gen. They are my first discoveries! I have recently been to Israel
and in touch with family I have never met before! Did some research in Yad
Vashem and Beit Hatefutsot but had no luck there. Just not enough time!
I will be at the New York Conference. I was hoping that there might be
others at the conference and also members of the SIG groups who may also be
looking for my families. The Paternal sides of the families are the hardest
I would have thought that they would be easier due to surnames!
My family names and towns are;
RECHTSCHAFFNER, SWARTZBARD, REISS (Lwow, Lyon )
FEIWEL, MILROM, WEKER, MELER, SPERGEL, SCHRAEGER, (Sokol, Tartakow, Lwow)
UNGER (Germany, Gurs / Escou France)
WEISS, WOLFMANN,TEICHTAHL, (Lubavetcher WEISS in Switzerland, Bielsko
Biala, Zacopagnya/zacopane(Czech side of Poland?) , Bendzin,Osweinim,
Jureno/ Juryno USSR)
DRUCK/ER, MEISELMAN (Kuty,Romania)
JURBLUM, ZYLBERBERG/SYLBERBERG/SILBERBERG(Warsaw)
DOBROWODKIER (Chelm)
If you have any information on any of these families I would love to hear
from you.

relatives must be written in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS each time they appear in a
message to a JewishGen list. The cooperation of all will be appreciated.
========>

Dear Group,

The other evening I found a Wasil Koralchik in the 1910 census. The census
stated he was thirty-five and lived in Cambria county. I tried to find him
in additional records, but was unable to do so.

My maiden name was Koralchik and I knew that my grandfather had brothers.
Unfortunately, I never heard any of the names or any other identifying
material. Wasil Koralchiks age in 1910 would have made him a contemporary of
my grandfather who was born in 1878.

If anyone has any information on this individual, or any suggestions on how
to track him down I would appreciate hearing >from them. Thank You,

being translated by professional translators. The list is at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23.
You can make a needed donation to these books and to JewishGen at
this site. Remember that JewishGen provides all the infrastructure
to make the Yizkor Book Project available to everyone at no cost, but
there is a cost to providing this material online and we hope that
our readers will generously support JewishGen, making their
appreciation known in this way.

At this time i want to thank once again our wonderful "international"
Yizkor Book Project volunteers who so efficiently get the
translations online: Lance Ackerfeld (Israel), Max Heffler (U.S.),
and Osnat Ramaty (Germany). They are a remarkable team. And to all
the people who donate their translations week after week, month after
month, we send our appreciation for their generosity and talent.

German SIG #Germany Yizkor Book Monthly Report for May 2006 #germany

Joyce Field
 

May 2006 has been a very busy one for the Yizkor Book Project. We
have one new online "book" (really, a collection of original essays),
four new books started, seven new entries, and 12 updates. All
yizkor book material is available at the Index page at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html. If you are not
familiar with this site, notice at the top of the page, just under
the JewishGen logo, is a list of sites you can access directly by
clicking on the name--for example, Database, Necrology Index, or
Infofiles. There is a wealth of information directly accessible >from
this one page with just a click. Also note that the yizkor material
is listed under four different categories. New material is flagged
for easy identification.

This month we have begun a new online collection, called "The
Terrible Choice: Some Contemporary Jewish Responses to the
Holocaust," at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/terrible_choice/terrible_choice.html
. Melvyn Conroy, the author, writes: "This collection of brief
essays is an attempt to portray the character and personality of a
number of the prominent Jews of occupied Europe, and the manner in
which they responded to the unique circumstances of the Shoah."
Thus far, we have eight essays online.
