photos of the remaining headstones for submission to JewishGen's JOWBR

Researching maternal ancestors from Warsaw - INGBERG, KLEPFISZ #poland

Sarah Lasry <srhlsr@...>
 

my friend Elizabeth Jackson, has for many years been attempting to
research her maternal grandparents, both of whom were born in Warsaw,
Poland.

To date, she has found no records specific to her grandparents She did
find two birth records of children born to her grandfather and his first
wife (half-siblings to her mother).

She would very much like to locate birth records for her actual
grandparents to help her further identify individuals in her family
line. It would also be nice just to prove they actually existed!

She checked all the normal resources. She also wrote to the Warsaw
Archives many years ago, but received no response. She knows there are
numerous archives in Poland now and she does not know which would hold
birth and marriage records, if they exist for the eras of her family.

Does anyone here have any recommendations on how she might further search
for information?

Her grandparents were:

Grandfather - Hirsch Wolf Ingberg, born Warsaw, Poland. He moved to
Minden, Germany in 1913 and through records there, Various dates
have been found for his birth as follows - 2 Dec. 1871, 15 Sept. 1870
and 12 Oct. 1871. Also in German records, there is an indication that
he died in 15 January 1943 in Otwock or the Warsaw ghetto, this
information supposedly provided by an eye witness. She has never been
able to locate any actual document indicating this.

Grandmother - Sosse Charlotte Klepfisz, born 20 Oct 1887 or
10 Oct 1887 in Warsaw, Poland (also per German records).

As with many children of Holocaust survivors, it troubles
Elizbeth that her family's actual existence in Poland seems to have
been erased >from history. She will be forever grateful if anyone here
can help with locating this information.

Perhaps someone who will be attending the summer conference in
Warsaw might be able to do research locally? If this is a
possibility for anyone, please respond to me privately at
srhlsr@... and I will send your response to my friend
Elizabeth.

I thank all here for your support, guidance and for listening!

Seeking info on Bone (Benjamin) DOMOSCH #general

e.l. kaminsky <elkamins@...>
 

Hello all -
Recently found a small connection to my KAMINSKY family with Bone (Benjamin)
DOMOSCH. He was a neighbor and may have been a sponsor to my GGF Samuel
Kaminsky in Philadelphia.

I can't find any census info for him, or any family members on Family Search.
Any ideas on alternate names or other ideas I can look at to get more
informations about this connection? I'm quite the novice researcher.

Thanks in advance!
