Dear Russell,

Welcome to the SIG. Just a reminder - most of the worlds' published
material is not on the internet. Yes, a lot of genealogically relevant
records are being placed on the web, but don't rely solely on that.

Get to a library! There are standard resources and techniques that
family history hunters use to search for information about relatives.
Start by reading a few books about how to research your family history
- that will get you on the right path. Genealogy for Dummies actually
is an excellent book. In addition, there are books, as well as
countless on-line articles about how to hunt for ancestors in specific
geographic locations and ethnic groups. The Jewish Gen web sites offer
several such articles, as does the Mormon site, Genealogy.com,
CyndisList, etc. Study up on the history of the era you wish to
explore, too.

Some standard resources include old city directories, telephone books,
census records, vital records indices, newspaper indices, who's who,
and necrology files. The Mormons' lending library of international
records was invaluable in my search. A good reference librarian can
assist you.

good luck - Pat

Dear Russel,
I think I know the family.... my family too.
I will reread your letter after our Pesach guests leave as they have the
sofabed in the computer room........
In a word Yesorsky. Lily Bernstein m ??? Yesorsky a reverend/schochet and
they lived in Bulawayo.
Daughter Marilyn lives I am told in Cape Town.There is also Judy and a son.
M is the oldest and would be late 60s, others maybe late 50's.
If I knew her married name I too would contact her.

I need to check my notes but I am fairly sure her mother was Lily Bernstein.

I am looking for information about our South African BERNSTEIN family.
They originated in Dvinsk/DAUGAVPILS, Latvia.

Perets and Lily Bernstein >from Latvia had at least one son who went to
England around 1900. Hyman BERNSTEIN (1879-1943) he married Yetta and had
3 children Percy, Rachel Leah and Bernard.

Another son born went to South Africa (via England), we know that this
brother was married (not sure if in UK or SA) we also know that the family
where still in South Africa in the early 50's this is the family we are
trying to locate.

Did the Jewish immigrants in SA live in communities or have burial

so do records exist?

Re: Looking for SCHON, STEINBERG ,VOGEL, PELL ancestors in Vienna #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Geoff Munitz is looking for data on the following
relatives who all moved to Vienna between 1880-1910:

1. Jakob SCHON, born Lemberg about 1860. Married in
1885 in Lemberg, Szyfra ROSENTHAL, the daughter of
Aron Rosenthal and Krajncze BUCH. Jakob and his wife
later resided at Wien 11, Pazmaniten Gasse A 28.

Their children all born in Lemberg were:
Arnold SCHON {1886}; Ella SCHON {1888}; Fany SCHON
{1890}; Etelka SCHON {1893}; Marya (Mandzia) {1896}.

2 Sophie STEINBERG, nee SCHOTTLANDER >from Brody,
the wife of a trader. They resided with their family
at Wien, 2, Muhlfeldgasse.

3. Teme SCHON, who was born in Lemberg about 1865.
She married in Lemberg in 1896 Mozes Jozef VOGEL, the
son of Eizyg and Sara Vogel. Their children all born
in Lemberg were: Marek VOGEL {1897}; Gusta Betti VOGEL
{1898}; Arnold VOGEL {1899}.

4. Chaje also known as Klara SCHON, who born in
Lemberg about 1859. She married in 1891, Elie Mendel
PELL, the son of Jakob Mordeche Pell and Sussel
BLASSBERG. Their children all born in Lemberg were
were: Marek PELL {1892}; Sigmar PELL {1893}; Gusta
PELL {1895}.
======================================================
This is an enormous list and each has to be carefully
checked through the cemetery records, asset files and
holocaust records. As Geoff has addresses he can get
the Meldezettel and more data should be forthcoming.

1. SCHON: A very common name but:

Ernestine 1906-04-24 27973
Arnold 1886-11-10 27974

this couple, with consecutive asset file numbers,
could be a hit - they may be father and daughter.

This could be the grave:
Zentralfriedhof Vienna Gate I Gp 19 Row 49 Grave 2


SCHON Jakob no age given 02.12.1941 04.12.1941
SCHON Serafine aged 62 Jahr(e) buried 07.04.1921
WAGNER Isidor aged 33 buried 22.02.1894

If correct, Jakob would be over 80 and born ca 1860.
Serafine is probably Szyfra. Isidor could be a
relative or a computer error!

This could be Etelka and perhaps a mother-in-law
deported >from the same address:

Etelka Schwarz born 03.08.1893
Mathilde Schwarz born 01.09.1869

2. STEINBERG - this could be the right grave

Zentralfriedhof Vienna Gate I Gp 52 Row 43 Grave 36
DEMERER Fanny aged 62 16.04.1932 18.04.1932
STEINBERG Philipp aged 70 buried 06.10.1912
STEINBERG Sofie aged 80 buried 7.01.1920

Fanny could be a daughter.

3. VOGEL: another very common name and hard to pin
down, but here is the right grave:

Zentralfriedhof Vienna Gate IV Gp 22 Row 30 Grave 8
[date of death and date of burial given]
VOGEL Moses Josef aged 67 09.11.1936 11.11.1936
VOGEL Tenne aged 82 20.08.1947 25.08.1947

Tenne appears to have survived the war years.

4. PELL: I know a London family originating from
Vienna and Galicia - they could be a link. There are
no 1938 asset files for this family and they do not
appear in a Vienna directory of 1933. There are no
PELL graves in Vienna, nor are there any holocaust
victims. The PELL family must have died out or left
before the holocaust.

Unless Geoff is prepared to do a lot of digging
himself - he needs to hire a genealogist to fill in
the gaps. There are many clues to be followed up and
although the names are common - it is not a lost
cause!

Dubois family <family@...>
 

I am writing to ask whether anyone can suggest how to trace a relative, who
may well be living. I would like to make contact with Hans Leopold Putz,
born on 1.12.1943 in Vienna. He is the son of Karl Putz (DOB 10.4.1906) and
Margarethe Wahringer (DOB 29.10.1909). He lived with his parents at three
different addresses in Taborstrasse, Vienna 2, until 1947. This is all the
information I have been able to obtain.
