Information on Friedrich Wilhem PESTER Borna, Saxony & Arizona #germany

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins-in-law,
I'm looking for genealogical information, specifically family
background in Germany, on William PESTER. In the United States
he sometimes went by Frederick PESTER. He was born Friedrich Wilhem
PESTER on July 18, 1885, in Borna, Saxony, Germany. His father was
Friedrich Hermann PESTER and his mother was Anna Marie nee ERLER. I
don't know if the family was Jewish, but I think it might
have been. Any information anyone has on the family background would
be greatly appreciated.

Birth Certificate. A person in the registry in Borna, although kind
enough to pass along the above birth information, was quite definite
in saying that only relatives of the deceased could apply for a birth
certificate. If anyone knows how I can get an official one, again,
this would be a big help.

Death Certificate. According to the Social Security Death Index,
PESTER, appearing as Frederick PESTER, died in Arizona in July 1963.
No city or county was given. I've been beating the bushes to find
confirmation of this, but no luck. As you know, Arizona is a "closed
record" state and will not issue death certificates to the general
researcher. Any indication of PESTER's death or residence in Arizona
would help quite a bit. Please respond privately to sorlen@email.arizona.edu

Best, Steve Orlen Tucson, AZ <sorlen@email.arizona.edu>

I am searching for my great grandparents Nathan and Rose WOHL WEISS. Nathan
came to the USA with his 4 children. The story is that his wife died in an
accident in Hungary. My grandmother was 1 of the 4 children and she married
in 1893 during the Columbian Exposition in Chicago, she was 18 years old at
the time. Any suggestions on how to research this as i do not read or speak
Hungarian.

Dear Tomi,

you seem to be well informed about the structure of the Jewish Communites
(where they belonged to and when), and also about where the records of
these communities are kept.

So could you are share this information (or the source of it) with us?

I personally am interested in the communities of Privigye
(Nyitra)/Prievidze (Nitra) and Jekelfalu/Jaklovce.

Finding two obituaries ; photos of two tombstones in Edmonton Cemetery #unitedkingdom

srhlsr@...
 

I'm hoping that JCR-UK readers can help with the following:

I'm looking for two obituaries and photos of tombstones of the
following people:


Rachel KLEPFISH 16-Dec-1929 Edmonton Cemetery
Millie KLEPFISH 20-Jun-1935 Edmonton Cemetery

I hope that this is no imposition; perhaps someone in London, England,
already going to visit Edmonton Cemetery , would be able to find and
photograph these two tombstones?

I found the above two results on JCR-UK's Database online; I didn't see
details there as to the location of the tombstones within the cemetery.

As far as obituaries ...I found one obituary at the Artchives of The
Jewish Chronicle online, for Millie KLEPFISH ; a short one; her date of
passing and burial, and age are mentioned; no names of family members,
etc.

Perhaps there are other online obituaries that I can be directed to?

(I have already searched on the Internet, but no luck finding
obituaries for England, for the years 1929 and 1935.)

Thank you!

WEINBERG in Starokonstantinov #ukraine

Nancy Weinberg <na_weinberg@...>
 

Hello Genners, I am researching my husband's family
Nissan and Pearel WEINBERG who arrived on the Dresden
in Aug, 1893 >from Russia. They had 9 children; their
youngest, Anna Dresden WEINBERG, born at sea. She
married Neil ELLENOF and took the first name of
Dresden as an adult. I have had little luck in
finding much about Morris, Ben, Charles. They
started a dress firm of Weinberg and Weinberg. Later
the name changed to Weinberg and Alpern. Any
connections out there?
I would like to find more about their life in
Russia. Thanks for any info you can provide. Look
forward to meeting you in NYC

Bertha SHAPIRO-SCHAPIRO #general

Looking for the family of my grandmother's sister: Bessie-Bertha SHAPIRO or
SCHAPIRO, nee SCHWITZ, daughter of Gittel and Yossel SCHWITZ. She married
Osias-Yehoshua [in Hebrew] and as far as i know they had one son Isiu-Isidor.
All were born in Bukovina, Austro-Hungaria.

I found in Ellis-Island passenger arrivals - and I am not sure -
Bertha SCHAPIRA that came >from Czernowits, to New-York, US in May 1915. She was
then 40 years old - so she was born on 1875. She came with her son
Isidor, that was then 16 years old. so he was born in 1899.
It is mentiomed that she came to her husband that was already in New-York, USA.
I also have few letters that Bertha wrote in Yiddish to my aunt in
Palestin-Israel during the years 1947-1953.

I have by now only one letter translated to Hebrew - and Bertha wrote
there that her son is married, and work very hard 14 hours a day.
May be I found that Bertha passed away on Oct. 1962, and Osias on Dec.
1951. I found those names buried in Mount Zion Cemetery one near the
other by the society of Wishnitza.
For any information I really thanks in advance,
Michal.

67-Marker Y-DNA Match! #dna

JULFALK@...
 

Just some good news. I recently found a FALK family thru DNA
teating, who match exactly on a 67 marker test of the Y chromosome.
It was in fact a stroke of luck. I saw a person's name, FALK, in a
publication and I wrote him and after exchanging some prliminary
information, I asked him if he would be willing to be tested. He
said yes and we began with a 12 marker test and gradually expanded
to 67. I have met him and his family and a brother and his family.
They are wonderful people, what else? So far, it's the only exact
match I have in my FALK Family Surname Group at Family Tree DNA. I
recommend establishing a family surname group. If nothing else, it's
a place to store your DNA sample.

Dear fellow SIG members

My uncle Mr. Joel Binnes of Liverpool(UK) spent nearly two years as a 22
year old in South Africa between the years 1922 to 1924.

I'm wondering if there is anyone in South Africa who knows anything
whatsoever about his stay.Being 75 years ago it's going to be hearsay or
something like that.

All I know is that he worked for relatives which are likely to have been the
Brodie family who established the Plate Glass company in Cape Town.

Wonder if Joel needed an entrance Visa and if so where I might find details
of it.

Seeking family of Shana Ita GRINBERG #general

My maternal great grandmother was a Shayna Ita GRINBERG. She married my
great grandfather, Leizer SAFIRSTEIN (or a variant of that name) circa
1868. Their first child - Michel or Mikael - was born in Miloska, Poland
in 1869. Leizer and Shayna had four other children: Surah (or Sarah) - my
maternal grandmother, Royza (or Rosa) born in 1871, Moshe born in 1879, and
Chana, in 1881.

I've just begun to search for my great grandmother's birth record.
Although all of her children were been born in Miloska (her husband Leizer
worked there) she doesn't appear to have been born there.
