New Member Introduction - ENGLANDER, ENGLISH #austria-czech

Madeleine J. English <madelanie5@...>
 

I am a new member of JewishGen. My name is Madeleine Jean ENGLISH. I live
in Sacramento, (State Capitol) California, USA. I have been doing genealogy
research for 5 years; however, this is my first attempt at researching my
Jewish line.

My native language is English. Unfortunately, I do not speak any other language.

I have varying levels of skill in using a computer. I am expert in some
software programs, probably intermediate in using the computer the internet.
However, I am a novice in researching my Jewish genealogy.

My great grandparents were: Philipp ENGLANDER b? d 1920's (before 1928) in
Presov, Czechoslovakia, m - 31 May, 1883 in Hungary
His wife: Helene STRAUSS b? d 1920's before 1928 in Presov, Czechslovakia.

They had the following children:
M = male F = female

M 1) my grandfather (everyone called him "Pa")
Jacob Paul ENGLANDER (abbreviated to "ENGLISH" upon arrival in USA)
b 10 May 1864 in Koshauer, Austria-Hungary
d 19 Jan 1960 in Santa Cruz, California, USA
m 1: Daisy ?
m 2: Elsie Betty NEHF (my grandmother)

M 2) Armin ENGLANDER
b ? d ?

F 3) Emma ENGLANDER
b 1872 d 28 Jan 1964 Bratislava, Czechslovakia
mar: Adolph Schwartz 1907

M 4) Joseph ENGLANDER (abbreviated to "English" upon arrival in USA)
b ? d ?

M 5) Bela ENGLANDER
b ? d ?

M 6) Eugene ENGLANDER
b ? d ?

F 7) Hermine ENGLANDER
b ? d ?

F 8) Anna ENGLANDER
b 1867 d 1932 Vienna, Austria - burried in Austria

I have a "little" more information on marriages/spouses/children, etc of
Pa's siblings if anyone is interested or needs more detail to determine
whether or not they may be able to assist me.

My primary research goals now are to find out more about my grandparents,
their family lines, and lives.

Family names and towns I am researching are:

ENGLANDER - Presov, Czechoslovakia
STRAUSS - Presov, Czechoslovakia
SCHWARZ - Presov, Czechoslovakia
SCHWARZ - Kosice, Czechoslovakia
LUSTIGUE - Munich, Germany
KALING-SWHWARZ - Laci, son of Emma was a political leader against the Czech.
communists Presov, Czechoslovakia which caused 2 years
improsinment - lived in Bratislavia - immigrated to Munich,
W. Germany, where he died
WEINBERGER - Kosice, Czechoslovakia - Hermine - married Ignacz HORA
- Stephen and Julius sons of Emma ENGLANDER-SCHWARZ (Adolf)
Kosice, Czechoslovakia - changed their name to HORA to avoid
anti-Semitic persecution of Hitler - Survived Nazi concentration
camp.
VOTRUBEC - ?, Switzerland (possibly Zurich) Jirina - married to Stephen
HORA, above.

I would be happy to provided upon request.

Thank you,

New Information about the Struma tragedy.. #romania

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

Dear All,

I would like to share with you information about a recent (2003) book,
that is the result of recent, careful research into the tragedy of the
Struma, the decrepit cattle boat, that carried nearly 800 Romanian
Jews to their tragic deaths in the Black sea, during WWII.

For those who are interested the authors are: Frantz, Douglas &
Catherine Conner. The title is: "Death on the Black Sea; the untold
story of the Struma and the World War II's Holocaust at sea", published
by HarperCollins, NY NY, 2003, ISBN 0-06-621262-6

Included is a corrected and updated list of the passengers, compiled
from the nearly dozen of lists, official and unofficial, in a chapter
contributed by Samuel Aroni, Professor Emeritus, UCLA, California, USA.
It was Prof. Aroni who was kind enough to call my attention to this
book. Information regarding it has also been added to the Struma link
on the ROM-SIG homepage.

This is a one-time commercial announcement permitted by JewishGen.

IAJGS Conference - Eastern European Jews in the Archives of Central Asia and much more #general

Gloria Berkenstat Freund
 

A series of lectures of particular interest to Russian emigrant communities
will be given at the annual conference of the International Association of
Jewish Genealogical Societies, >from Sunday, August 13th to Friday, August
18th, 2006 at the New York Marriott Marquis. The lectures, organized by
Valery Bazarov, the director of the HIAS Location and Family History Service
and member of the JGS Executive Council, will also be of great interest to
other genealogists.

These lectures include:

* * * Records of Eastern European Jews in the Archives of Central Asia

Of particular interest to those with ancestry in Poland, this lecture given
by Saidjon and Nafisa Kurbanov, will discuss how to research the thousands
of Polish Jews who were deported or exiled to Central Asia, as well as the
thousands of Jews in Nazi occupied areas who fled to this region during the
Second World War.

* * * A Search of Jewish Roots in a Communist Country

Leonid Leites will discuss the difficulties he met and overcame in his
search for his ancestors under the Communist regime in the USSR.

* * * The Search for Roots of Ashkenazi Jews Outside the Pale

Aaron Khaskevitch researched the Jews who lived outside of the Pale of
Settlement in the Caucasus Area -- the craftsmen, tailors and
distillers.
They were given the equivalent of "worker's visas" and were all registered
with the police.
When their visas and permits expired, the process of deportation began.
Lists were assembled of those to be deported. Research conducted in police
archives of Tbilisi, Georgia produced interesting data about the history of
Ashkenazi Jews of that region.

* * * Through Russia's Turbulent Times

Dmitriy Margulis will share his experience in creating the history of the
seven generations of one Jewish family that reflected the life of the
entire Russian Jewish community -- through the 20th Century. Mr. Margulis
will also discuss the little known genealogical sources hidden in well-known
archives.

lecturers, visit the Conference website at www.jgsny2006.org

Thank you Jewish Gen members re: Markowitz #general

Rennie and Jack Salz <jrsalz@...>
 

I would like to thank publicly Yehuda ben Shlomo and Thomas Lerman for help
that they gave me in my search for information about my ggrandfather Josep
Solomon Markowitz.
Yehudah has been marvelous and I appreciate his effort very much. I will be
forever grateful to him. In the near future I will make a contribution to
Jewish Gen. because it was through Jewish Gen. that I was able to receive
the help that these two men so generously offered.

Dear Cousins
Can anyone please help in obtaining a telephone number in Ashkelon? An
unknown relative called and left a message on my voicemail that terminated
before she could leave her number. I had only grief trying to use the
various international phone directory services.

Abraham and Pamela Warshavsky (other possible spellings = Varshawsky/
Warshawsky etc.) in Ashkelon, Israel.

Thank you in advance.

Machpelah Cemetery, Glendale, Queens- help needed #general

Edward M Lewison <neddana@...>
 

Last month I called the Machpelah Cemetery's Manhattan office
(718-366-5959) and was told that 2 of my CAHN/KAHN relatives are buried
in Gate 23- Bnai Jischri Lef. But because I could not provide dates of
death, she was not able to give me names/dates of any other relatives
there.

So I need someone who is going there anyway to check the burials next to
these 2 graves. If anyone is willing to help, please contact me
privately -- I can provide a few details, and I don't want to send more
than one volunteer on this mission of mercy.

Thank you,

Citizenship after WWI #galicia

After WWI, with the re-establishment of Poland, did Galitzianers receive
Polish citizenship automatically or were they given the option of Austrian
citizenship? If the latter applies, what were the criteria and conditions to
receive Austrian citizenship?

I grew up in Hendon, London, UK and there was a very
famous grocery store in Golders Green(neighbouring
suburb) called FLAX - every Sunday morning my Dad used
to go there and buy delicacies (smoked salmon, shmaltz
herring etc) for our Sunday breakfast.

Hopefully other genners will be able to put you in
touch with this family.

The main internment camp in WWI was at Knockaloe near the west coast. It
contained perhaps 24,000 internees, which was about half the population of the
island. It was so large that a special railway was built for the transport of
food and other goods to the camp. A number of German and Turkish internees
died there and were buried in the churchyard at St Patrick's Church, opposite
the camp. In 1962 most of the Germans were transferred to a German burial
ground in the Midlands. The Turks were left behind in the churchyard and so were
two Jewish graves. I wondered why they were not transferred to the Jewish
section of the main cemetery in Douglas, the capital, which opened in the 1940s
to accommodate the Jews who died while interned. But I did not get a
satisfactory answer.
