Re: WINNICKI of Przerosl (Suwalki gubernia, Poland) became WEINSTEIN in Paris #general

Gerry Swetsky <gswetsky@...>
 

Most of the WINNICKI's that I have found in Landsman are traceable to a
family which moved to the USA and changed their name to WINITZKY. They
ended up in Titusville, PA in the 1860's.

There was a person who was tracing that family (Winitzky) here on JewishGen
some time ago. Perhaps they'll see your post.

So, I have compared the list of people with parents'names when I got them,
and could conclude that the name WINNICKI became WEINSTEIN
for the families arriving in Paris.
I tried to build the more complete tree as possible thanks
to the data published in Landsmen and the data found in Paris.
If somebody is interested, tell me, please.

Important: this modification of names concerns only Przerosl and some from
Augustowa but not other places. I only studied the family of Przerosl.

Update- death books at the Red Cross's ITS, Bad Arolsen Germany #general

koosh <koosh@...>
 

Update, May 16.
The Associated Press reported today that the 11-nation governing body
of the International Tracing Service, an arm of the Red Cross body that
oversees the Bad Arolsen archive voted on changes to the 1955 treaty.
Proposed changes would allow each of the 11 countries to obtain a
digital copy of the Bad Arolsen archive and to make it available to
researchers and victims relatives in those countries under controlled
conditions.
Each of the 11 nations must ratify the changes to open access to the
ITS archive.

--- Original Message---
After being withheld for 65 years, the death books at the Red Cross's
International Tracing Service, Bad Arolsen Germany are expected to be
opened to historians and other researchers for the first time.

Will the commission vote in the affirmative? Keep an interested eye
on the issue, and the urgency that this moment demands.

Auschwitz victims' suitcases #austria-czech

Sally Goodman <sbgoody@...>
 

As a follow up to my previous post, May 26th (see below), re Elie Weisel's
visit to Auschwitz with Oprah, a Jewish Genner sent a message to me
personally re a book called "Hana's Suitcase" written for middle school age
children. It is wonderful story about one of these suitcases. She wondered
what information could be gained >from the suitcases.

I gave this some thought and here is my response. Perhaps some of you have
other ideas and suggestions.

I don't know what information could be gained >from the suitcases but the
feeling you get when you see a relative's name on one of those suitcases on
your TV screen >from the sofa in your living room is almost indescribable.

Seeing the thousands of suitcases is one thing, seeing one that belonged to
a relative who perished, whether you knew the relative was a victim or not,
gives you a stab in your heart and a blow to your gut. It takes your breath
away. It is certainly a reminder we can never forget =AD perhaps that is what
we gain >from seeing the suitcases especially >from the comfort of one's home.

This evening I watched the DVR of Elie Weisel and Oprah's visit to
Auschwitz.
As they walked through the Museum, they stopped at the window of the
suitcases and the name VESELY jumped out at me. I paused and forwarded,
paused and rewound until I could see the name clearly. VESELY is a prominent
collateral name in my family's history. How eerie this felt.
Then I saw other suitcases with names. Again, I paused and forwarded and
rewound until I could make out the names and information. I list them belo=
w
as I was able to see them in case someone is interested:
Petr EISLER #6446, born 20-111-1942, a child;
Ruth Sara LAX;
Fanni Sara KORNITZER, Wien; and
LEVKOVIC Alex.
Perhaps when someone visits Auschwitz, they could photograph the suitcases
with names, if permitted, and post them. It really makes this so very
personal.

Need ID of timeframe/location of photo (PALEVSKY - Kobrin) #general

Can anyone help identify when and where (U.S. or Russia) the following
photo may have been taken, based on clothing, hairstyles, etc? Also, the
ages of the men? I've never been good at guessing someone's age!

http://palevsky.myrelatives.net/images/sashen/gershon-sons.jpg

These are members of a PALEVSKY family >from Kobrin, Belarus -- a father
and 4 of his sons. I don't believe the father ever came to the U.S., but I'm
not sure about that. Would his sons have had the type of hairstyles and
mustaches in then-Russia? At least one of the sons immigrated to the U.S.
around 1892 and settled in Cleveland, where his wife and children
eventually joined him. We have yet to identify exactly who the other 3
sons are, though we have some ideas.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Yiddish Translation Needed for ViewMate Documents #general

Aaron Werbel <werbel@...>
 

Hello JewishGenners,

I have posted three notes on ViewMate written in Yiddish that I am hoping
to have translated.

The first is a page >from my great-great Uncle Philip LIPKIN's address book.
I have no idea what it might contain, but the rest of the book is birthdays,
marraiges and deaths of all his cousins. I thought it might have some
more genealogically relevant information.

http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7920

The next two are a card and short letter >from 1946, written by my grandmother
Ida FEINSTEIN (>from Odessa) to the Brooklyn Jewish Journal which I believe
contain obituary information about my great-grandfather, Leo WERBEL.

Re: George and Barbara BERNATH - Vienna #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Joe Hirshfeld of Portage, MI writes that he is seeking
information on brother and sister George b.1937 and
Barbara BERNATH b. 1938 (Barbara may have had a
married name in 1968). George and Barbara arrived in
the US in 1968 with their mother Rosa (maybe Rose)
from Austria and settled in California. Rosa had been
married to Andreas BERNATH, but they were divorced.

I have been tracking this family for Joe in Vienna in
a Sherlock Holmes-type process which has developed day
by day, and now have the news he is looking for.

Andreas BERNATH was born 9. Oct. 1891 in Erlau,
Hungary and died in Vienna on 6 March 1959. He had
married Rosa BERNATH nee BAUER (born 16 April 1898 in
Vienna) in Budapest at the Staatliches Matrikenfuhrung
Bezirk IV and divorced in Vienna on 6. Dec. 1949.

Their children, Georg (dob 19 July 1937) and Barbara
(dob 14.Dec 1938) were born in Hungary. Barbara also
known as Betty, a mannequin, married Joseph LICATE,
Sergeant in the US Army in Standesamt Wien-Alsergrund
(Nr 481-1955) on 24 Aug. 1955 and on 19.4.1960 they
lived at [address redacted by moderator per JewishGen
guidelines] in Hollywood 27 California.

I have sent Joe the exact address. Hopefully, we will
find living family members as tragically many of the
HERSCHFELD-BAUER family of Galicia and Vienna were
murdered in the holocaust.
