Could Anschnirtz be Auschwitz ? #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

Still working on the memory book concerning the Convoy#73 that took
878 men >from France to the Baltic States on 15 May 1944, I found a
Benjamin SOLNIK who is said born in "Anschnirtz" in 1900. I couldn't
find any "Anschnirtz" anywhere. On the other hand, I thought that
Auschwitz was Oswiecim before WWII ? Thanks in advance for any help
with that search.

KABALKIN of Harbin, China #general

Jules Feldman
 

I am searching for the descendants of a KABALKIN family who lived in Harbin
, China . Probably in the 1920s and onwards

According to notes I received: Sheva , the daughter of Gershon and Hanna
Tsipa COHEN/KAHN of Dankara, Latvia was married to a Mr KABALKIN and they
lived in Harbin, China.
They had a son Yitschak and a daughter (first name not known to me).

I will be grateful for any leads that will help me find descendants of
these relatives.

Thanks,

Seeking Information On Canadian Port Arrivals-Via St. Albans Manifest #general

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

Hello All

Can anyone tell me what ship was used most during the years 1907-1916
for canada port arrivals >from russia. I have found both my
great-grandfather(David Rakoff), and his brother Isadore/Israel Rakoff
on the St. Albans Manifest Index/Soundex Cards.My great-grandfather
supposedly came to canada in 1907. His brother is a different story. He
came to canada around june of 1914 after his last child was born, then
from there boarded a train most likely to visit a cousin Harry
Friedland in Manhattan. He stayed with this cousin for about 6 months
or so according to the card.

There is also a second card for him which obviously shows he went back
to canada about november 1915, and then came back to the US in
september of 1916. So, what i would like to know is what ship he would
have come off of when he came to port in canada. Also would he have
needed some kind of a visa or papers to come back and fourth from
Canada and the US.

All answers and advice needed.

I am a statistician by training and 100,000 Jews serving in the German armed
forces in WWI out of a total Jewish population of, say, half a million seems
highly questionable.

About 350,000 would have been adults and more than half of those would have
been women making about 160,000 male adults.

I have looked at the size of the Germany army.

According to http://www.country-data.com/cgi-bin/query/r-4901.html the
German population was 68 million in 1914. Was 20 per cent of that population
ie 13.5 millions under arms?

http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/FWWgermanA.htm says that within a few
weeks of WW1 being declared the reserves had been called up and 3.85
millions were then in the German Army.

It does also state that the Germany Army did suffer 5 million casualties
during WW1.

I recognize the name Joachim Fruchter, but would like to know what

MALAMUD/Israel immigration rercords #general

Marilyn Feingold <mrl516@...>
 

How can an entire family disappear? My relatives Sura and Labe MALAMUD had
five children. I have only been able to find one, Israel Malamud and his
son, who only knows about his father.
Tsepa, Rachel, David and Abraham are missing! I know that Sura SCHLAFFER
was born in Kamenka on the Dneister River in Moldova. I know that she
married Labe Malamud. I know >from their son, Israel's Declaration of
Intentions, that Israel immigrated >from Palestine in 1921 and was born in
Warsaw Poland in 1900. I think that Tsepa possibly came to the United
States. Would there be any documents in Israel that could tell me his
address before immigrating to Israel? How about passport information that
would have allowed him to enter Palestine. Other ideas? Thanks,
Jewishgenners!

gravestone identification KADETSKY #general

Jenni Hymoff Koeppel
 

Hello again

Before I even posted my request I have received translations of the three
gravestones I posted on Viewmate. Thanks to you all for your wonderful
help.

I have another question regarding the stone of my ggm Adeline (viewmate 8357
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/index.asp). Family legend had it
that her children did not know where she was buried (she died in the flu
epidemic of 1918 and was buried in her family plot way out in Woburn and
most of her children were small). However, this headstone looks newer than
1918 - does anyone have any idea if this stone is a style used at that time
or later on? Her nephew Benjamin died the following year (1919) and his
stone looks older.

I'm wondering because it says "our beloved mother" and no mention of "wife"
which makes me suspect that the stone was placed by her children after her
husband's death in 1955.

Ideas and suggestions are welcome.

I am also wondering why there is no Hebrew or other name of Abraham and
Shifra's fathers on their headstones in viewmate 8358
(http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/index.asp) - I was hoping that this
information would give proof that Adeline, Abraham and Benjamin were
siblings, but it seems Benjamin was Abraham and Shifra's son....

Thanks again for your attention and help,

Hello. I was given the name of a gentleman at Yad VAshem who had knowledge
of the family trees that were required of Jewish families during World War
II. I wanted information on my great grandfather Steiner Karolyi.
Unfortunately, the gentleman at Yad Vashem did not answer either of my
letters or emails. Has anyone had better luck with this person? If so, can
they tell me how they got an answer >from him? Thanks, Jenny Caughlan in

Can anyone tell me if "Galszec" refers to a city, an area or perhaps is an

Many thanks.

Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive # 86 #germany

Ernest Kallmann
 

Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive, Paris Issue 86, just published. Summary:

**Our Society.
Forthcoming meetings and activities in Paris and in our regional groups.
Report about the last meeting of the Alsace SIG, a visit to Petite
Alsace, a hamlet in the 13th Paris section, by Eliane Roos-Schuhl and
Bernard Lyon-Caen.
Conference by Felix Perez on our regular Monday meetings about the
sociology of the Jews accepted at Ecole Polytechnique >from 1794 to 1927.

**Miscellaneous.
The Jews in Tripoli at the eve of colonization (1911).

French readers generally know little about Libya and its capital
Tripoli, which was colonized by Italy opposite to Tunisia, Algeria and
Morocco, the other countries of /Maghreb/, Northwest Africa. Written
sources, even in Italian, are sparse. In order to bridge this gap,
Jacques TaIeb reverts to a chronicle in Hebrew by Mordekhay Cohen, a well-known
writer. His paper is built around two themes: demography and onomastics.

Alsatian given names: Schlumen, Heymann, Eitzig, Mayer, Scheinel,
Marianne, Claire and all others.

Eliane Roos-Schuhl exploits a wedding agreement executed in 1771 in
Haguenau and deposited at the Archives Departementales du Bas-Rhin in
Strasbourg. It is mentioned in /Memoire Juive en //Alsace/, by
Andre-Aaron Fraenckel. She analyzes some usual equivalences between
Ashkenazi given names in Alsace and thereupon among descendants of
Alsace and Lorraine families widely scattered >from the 19th century onward.

**Families
The daughters of Lucie Lang or my "cousin" Maurice Leblanc.

Andree Lanz-Margolin has discovered an amusing "relationship" with
Maurice Leblanc. Leblanc has become mainly famous as the author of
detective stories featuring Arsene Lupin, the "gentleman burglar".
Leblanc and Lupin are as familiar to French readers as Agatha Christie
and Hercule Poirot, her Belgian detective. The genealogical
demonstration is worth the visit.

Alexandre, a Jew >from Wittersheim.

Laurent Kassel devotes this article to one of his forebears, Alexandre,
a figure in the Jewish community of Wittersheim (Bas-Rhin) during the
second half of the 18th century. He follows up the recurrence of this
given name along his descendants. The same person is mentioned by
Pierre-Andre Meyer in his article about the Jewish origins of the French
President Alexandre Millerand (Issue 80 of this Revue). The author
resorts to /Memoire Juive en Alsace/, by Andre-Aaron Fraenckel, the 1784
Census of the Jews in Alsace, the 1808 name adoption registers of the
Jews and eventually the civil records covering all French nationals since 1792.

**Documentation

An encyclopedic monograph by Eve-Line Blum-Cherchevsky
/Nous sommes 900 Francais/, in 6 volumes, 1999-2006, Publisher : the
author.

The author has labored over 10 years on the 2159 pages of this work. It
is a memorial for the 878 deportees of convoy 73, which left Drancy on
May 15, 1944 toward the Baltic States. The author's efforts and research
have found 315 relatives of the victims, one by one; their co-operation
was essential to what is now a collective production. Each volume is
made of two parts, providing an encyclopedic aspect: the first part
documents the history of convoy 73 and also about deportation >from a
broader point of view; the second part devotes each deportee an
individual section. The book is reviewed in detail by Basile Ginger on page 23.
