Seeking in towns near Breslau - Solomon VICTOR #germany

mavlin@...
 

I am looking for help in trying to locate the birth records of Solomon VICTOR
who stated on documents that he was born in Breslau, Prussia in 1837.

A thorough search of the LDS films for this period has been unsuccessful
and I was wondering if anyone could advise me of what towns and villages close
to Breslau, existed at this time, so I could do a search of the records for
these towns. regards

Deportations from Stuttgart #germany

Fritz Neubauer
 

The German-Jewish weekly "Juedische Allgemeine" printed a short article
on June 15, 2006 on the inauguration of a memorial place on the site of
the former Stuttgart Northern Railway Station (Nordbahnhof), >from which
all the Stuttgart deportation trains left for Theresienstadt, Riga,
Izbica, Auschwitz etc.

Further information in German is available though the address:

http://www.zeichen-der-erinnerung.org/home.htm

which also provides links to other related sites. I have no further data
on this matter. With kind regards

Fritz Neubauer, North Germany

INTRO including list of families and towns #germany

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins-in-Law,

I've been researching my eastern European families for 25 years, &
about a year ago I turned to my wife's German antecedants. On her
maternal side, the MARX family originated in Fellheim & Buttenhausen
& has been researched very thoroughly by her cousin Werner MARX. Her
LIEBMANN family >from Wankheim has been researched by #20888, & by her
cousin David RAINDORF. The ADLER family has been researched most
resourcefully by Mr. P.S. WYANT & Kathy JAAP. I've so far found a
number connections to those who married into the families I'm
researching by looking at the Family Tree of The Jewish People. I've
joined with some of these researchers, & continued the work of others
since new avenues of research have opened up in the past few years.
I've been helped enormously by my friend in Holland, Bert DE JONG,
who has also added a considerable amount of documentation. My
mother-in-law, Marian MARCUS nee BERMANN, who was born in Frankfurt,
has helped with her knowledge of her families >from Buttenhausen, &
life there in the early 20th century. To my knowledge, no one has
done any research on my wife's paternal side, which includes BERMANN,
HIRSCHBAUM MARCUS & TUSCHINSKI.

My native language is English & it's the only language I know. I've
developed most of the necessary skills with the computer & the
internet, & am a member of one of the paid-for geneological services.

The following lengthy list includes surnames of people with both
blood kinship with my wife & those who married in.

All cities are in Germany except for those noted.
Like most of you, I've been saddened by the considerable number of my wife's
ancestors who perished in the Shoa.

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:

Thanks, as they always say, in advance.
