Yad Vashem Submitter - Germany #general

Jackye Sullins <jsullins@...>
 

I am trying to contact Mikhail LUMENSKI in Hannover, Germany who submitted a
Page of Testimony in 2005 for his grandfather, Benjamin Kesselman. I tried
the on line German telephone directory but that was a dud.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

help with name identification #general

Bruce Dumes <brucedumes@...>
 

I'm having trouble reading a name in a ship manifest. Any help would be
deeply appreciated.

These four names represent my great-grandmother and three of her
children. My great-grandmother's name is Shaina (spelled various ways)
Dumes who became Sadie in America.

The second name is the one in question. Her name became Anna. On the
Philadelphia manifest it looks kind of like "Neima" or "Neinna".

The other two names are Artzik which became Arthur and Wulf which became
William, my grandfather. Up until I started doing this research, I had
no idea my grandfather had ever been anything but William.

Here are the names >from the Philadelphia manifest:

http://dumes.net/sadie_name.jpg

I also have the manifest >from their departure in Hamburg:

http://dumes.net/sadie_name_hamburg.jpg

Thanks, as they always say, in advance.

I have noticed your correspondence with great interest,
Is there a list of graves for the Maitand Cemetery? I understand my ggf's
brother Ben-Zion (Benjamin) SWIRSKY is buried there. Some of our family is
spelled SVIRSKIS (like mine).

Thanks,
Eric Svirskis, Melbourne Australia.

Interested in: FLEXER, OKUN, SRAGOWITZ, SVIRSKIS/SWIRSKY, and I'm sure
I'll find more to add.

Marilyn Feingold <mrl516@...>

Muizenberg Cemetery #southafrica

Beryl. B <balden@...>
 

Many thanks to all the replies received
from our SIG members who offered to take pictures
of Tombstones at Muizenberg Cemetery on my
behalf.

This has been attended to by a kind SIG member.

As a matter of interest to all former Capetonians
living out of South Africa, the Cemeteries Board in
Cape Town is in dire need of funds to clean up the
Cemeteries where most of our ancestors are buried.
(This is not an advertisement and not to be
taken as such. This request is being put here on my own
iniative and not on behalf the Cape Town Chevra Kadisha
and Cemeteries Board).

Research in Dinslaken #germany

Henry Wellisch <henry.kelwel@...>
 

Jenny HARFF, born 1884 in Dinslaken is a very distant relative. Her
father David was born in 1816, perhaps also in Dinslaken, a town in
the Rheinland. He married late apparently.

How do I go about researching this family?

The names of people working in the Standesamt are on the Dinslaken website.
Would these people do research on the side or is the only other way to hire
a professional researcher in the area?

Was permission to emigrate requried between 1807 and 1816? #germany

Richard Welch <rwelch@...>
 

Hyman (Hayim, Hermann) LAZARUS, my immigrant German-Jewish ancestor, arrived
in the United States at Philadelphia in November of 1816. There is a person
of the same name, occupation, and approximately the same age in a document
showing that he was a fruit peddler in Appenheim (near Mainz) in March of 1807.
I would like to prove or disprove that these two individuals were the same person.

My question is, would a Jew >from this part of Germany between 1807 and 1816
have been required to obtain written permission >from the local German authorities
to emigrate, or, since this was during the time that Napoleon controlled much of
the Rheinland, would he, under French law, simply have been able to leave without
obtaining written permission? A staff member at the State Archives that has the
records >from this area is willing to do some searching for me, but there is no
sense asking if an emigration document was not required.
