hospitals in NYC #general

Paul & Irene Berman <ikpjb@...>
 

Does anyone know which hospitals, especially non-private, would have served
the areas that included these NYC addresses - 18th Street, as well as
Alabama Avenue, in Brooklyn -1909 to 1918; 125th Street in Manhattan -
1937/8?
Do those hospitals still exist and is there a possibility that they might
still hold archives for those years?
I am searching for information on two ancestors who died, almost certainly
within NYC itself and whose death records I could not find at the NYC
archives after an exhaustive - and exhausting - search I did in person. I do
not believe that either was outside the city at the time of their deaths.

St. Albans Manifest Index At New York Public Library #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello

I just need someones aid for a quick lookup of a name in the St. Albans
Manifest Index and a copy of the name when found. If anyone is going to
the New york public library in Manhattan to do research can they please
do me a favor by doing this lookup for me. The soundex code you need
for the right microfilm is R212.

The person I am trying to locate is my great-grandfathers brother, who
came through canada in 1916. His name is most likely going to be listed
as Rakovchik/Rakopehzik, Israel/Isadore and according to his
naturalization papers he then borded a train called Rutland Railroad
and arrived in new york in September 1916.

He was born in minsk in 1887. His brother's name was David
Rakovchik/Rakoff. His parents as far as i know are Morris & Bernice. He
also had four kids that he left behind in russia at that time. Their
names were Sonia, Helen/Hannah, Ben/Berel, & Samuel.

If anyone can do me this favor i would appreciate very much. All i want
is a copy of the index card with his name on it, in hopes that it will
have the information i seek as to his arrival to canada or a file
number. Please contact me if you can do this.

NARA proposed rules on reduced hours #general

jan meisels allen <janmallen@...>
 

Dear Jewish Genners:

Yesterday I posted a notice about the July 25th proposed rule by NARA that
addresses reduced hours of operation for NARA I and NARA II in Washington
DC/Maryland and the regional branches. Evidently the URL that I posted
worked on the day the proposed rule was posted, but now, one day later, you
have to ferret around the entire site to get to the rules.

If you can't find the rules by searching, I saved them to my computer- if
anyone wants a pdf copy of the rules please e-mail at jan@IAJGS.org and I
will e-mail them to you.

Re: IAJGS NY Conference Attendees - update #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Two more Austria-Czech Siggers have let me know that they will be at
the conference:

1. We all know Amira Kohn-Trattner of NY who has often written in.
Amira plans to attend some meetings and would like very much to meet
with the Austria Czech Siggers for the morning meeting and potential
dinner. Amira is researching:

KOHN (Prague and Lucenec/Slovakia), KAFKA (Bohemia), FISCHEL
(Vienna/Prague), RAUDNITZ (Vienna/Prague), KANTUREK (Vienna/Prague)

Amira asks: Is there a special list of all the presentations that
would be of particular interest to the Austrian-Czech siggers?
So could someone who has studied a complete programme please send us
a synopsis of *key* "Austria-Czech"-related talks?

2. A name which is not so familiar to us on Austria-Czech is our
Sigger Sylvia Furshman Nusinov, but you only have to read about
Sylvia's work in genealogy to know that she is very eminent:
President emerita JGSPBCI, FL. Sylvia had Galician relatives in
Vienna called AWNER and EHRENPREIS but we have not quite pinned down
the connection with the families we have now identified as living in
Vienna pre-1938 and Sylvia's family. There are references to Viennese
relatives in correspondence that Sylvia still has. Sylvia will be
very busy with her other activities but hopefully you will catch a
glimpse of her.

As Siggers Logan Kleinwaks and Jean Lowenstamm know, we got great
breakthroughs recently in links to Galicia [KALTER and NICHTENHAUSER
respectively] by studying the official death registrations/wills in
Vienna that are housed in the Gasometer archives. These may have a
listing of siblings and other relatives still living in Galicia at
the time of death. Tragically, Sylvia's potential links were deported
or hopefully emigrated successfully to Milan and Australia, so we
cannot use this approach. But here is a pre-conference surprise for
Sylvia: We had a Meldeauskunft which told us: Chaim (Karl) EHRENPREIS
rect. GRUNFELD, born 3.9.1874 in Lemberg, Handelsagent, married ..
wife: Cacilie, born 11.7.1877 and daughters Stefanie, born
27.11.1906 and Josefine, [28.10.1903 - 3.2.1924].
Deregistration comment: 5.12.1938: "emigrated Australia"

And believe it or not, I have just found on the NAA website:
http://www.naa.gov.au/ EHRENPREIS Stefanie born 27 November 1906;
nationality Stateless; travelled per Strathnaver arriving in Brisbane
on 8 August 1939 and then tragically and in another entry I find
this: EHRENPREIS Stefanie: Nationality - Chinese: Date of Birth - 27
November 1906: Date of Arrival - 20 August 1939: Certificate Number -
122: Date of Issue - 2 October 1939: First registered at West
Melbourne [contains 1 black and white photograph] Deceased/1939 -
1945/EHRENPREIS Stefanie.

This suggests the family fled to Shanghai and that the parents never
managed the trip to Australia. I hope Stefanie did not die so young
after her ordeal. Sylvia will have to order the documents to see what
they reveal.

3. Rolf Lederer tells me that his ggggrandfather Tobias died at age
100 in 1836 and his wife at 89. This must be some sort of record for
Bohemia in that era! Tobias had another son, Salomon, born in 1794,
who also missed the 1793 census. Salomon emigrated to the US in 1853
and was a prolific letter writer and died in Albany, NY in 1878.
There are many descendants today in the US. Rolf is descended from
Simon, who was Salamon's older brother and settled in Gladbach,
Germany in 1811 [letters did arrive in those days!], where the family
resided till WW2.

I checked: http://www.jewishgen.org/austriaczech/early_immig.html
but Salomon is not listed. Isn't it time he got a rightful place with
the other early immigrants to USA?

So now there are 25 Austria-Czech Siggers registered and indeed there
may be more! I will send out a final list soon to all the
participants.

VS: Bridging past 18th century surname changes #austria-czech

Jan O. hellmann <jan@...>
 

Michael Gordy is raising the question of following Jewish names beyond 18th
century. I have tried to find means for solution now for several years - in
vane. It has been "fairly" forward to get back to approx. 1795 in the two
townships I am looking in, namely Pullitz/Police and Vsenory. Basically
thanks to the rescriptions of the names issued by Prague National Archive.
However beyond the end of 16th century there is seemingly darkness. I can
only join Michael Gordy in his call for help. When during the reign of Maria
Teresia and Josef II Jews got new secularised names - there must have been
in such bureaucratic country like Austria-Hungary lists translating old
names to new - if not of other reasons than due to taxation.

various GOLDSCHMIDT, mostly Berlin #germany

Irene Newhouse <einew@...>
 

In 1929, the Gesellschaft fuer Juedische Familienforschung held an
exhibition in Berlin for which members loaned family portraits and
artistically rendered family trees. A catalog was published as a supplement
to the society’s journal, “Juedische Familienforschung”. [No, I don't have
the full catalog, only selected pages. JFF is available at many of the
larger Judaica libraries. I don't live near one any more]. I recognize in
the catalog several relatives because the ancestors whose portraits they
exhibited are in my family database. However, I don’t have information on
these lines that close to the present. I’m listing them here in case some of
their descendants or close relatives are also members of this list & can
provide information on these people & their families:

Bluemchen GOLDSCHMIDT nee FANTI (1725,Berlin-1825), owned by
greatgreatgranddaughters V. and L. GOLDSCHMIDT

Itzig GOLDSCHMIDT, cloth merchant (1767, Potsdam-1846, Berlin) owned by
greatgrandson Dr. Richard WOLFF. A Dr. Richard WOLFF also supplied family
trees for a reference work on the great Jewish mercantile & banking families
of Berlin; possibly this same man. Dr. WOLFF also owned a portrait of Itzig
G’s wife, Johanna nee PICK (1781, Berlin-1853)

Rebekka GOLDSCHMIDT nee MONISCH [so in the catalog. I’ve also seen it
spelled MANES] owned by greatgreatgrandson Dr. jur. Ivan GOLDSCHMIDT

Sara GOLDSCHMIDT, daughter of Abraham JOSEPH (-1834, Berlin) owned by
greatgreatgranddaughter Grete ARONS nee ROTHMANN who also exhibited a
portrait of Sara’s husband Wulff Juda GOLDSCHMIDT (1749, Berlin-1832)

Louis Lewin Obituary #germany

Daniel Sachs <sachsmd@...>
 

A few weeks ago, I posted an inquiry on GERSIG, seeking volunteers to translate
my ggf Louis Lewin's obituary, first >from the Gothic German to a modern
font, and then >from German to English. I was mightily pleased by the many
responses I received.

Eventually, I moved ahead with Fritz Neubauer, who had shown an excellent
command of English in his postings on this website. Fritz delivered,
accurately and on time.

The obituary, written shortly after Lewin's death in 1929, amply
shows this man in all his facets: as a staunch Social Democrat;
a popular teacher, even though, owing to his religion, he never held
a tenured position at a German university; a gifted (that's a pun:
in German, gift=poison) research botanist and toxicologist; loving husband
and father; an observant Jew; and, above all, a mensch. The outlines of his
life are now available, in English, to his descendants in America and Israel.

I want to publicly express my thanks to Fritz Neubauer and his
wife, Marilyn, for taking the time and showing the
interest to make this possible. May they both enjoy
many more years of life and good health and
continued productivity. Hoch soll sie beide leben!
