FW: Hello #germany

Hello GerSig,
I have just joined the group (and posted a request before introducing myself
I have been researching my husband's BROMBERGER family earnestly for the past
2 years. I have traced the family back to Adelnau, Poland and then followed them
to Berlin. I have the birth certificate of my father-in-law, Baruch BROMBERGER.
I've gone back another two generations with Lina nee NEUMARK and Bernhard
BROMBERGER (grandparents of my husband) and Gershon BROMBERGER and Hannah nee
DIENEMAN. Lina and Bernhard perished at Auschwitz. I have learned of many siblings
of Bernhard and have just recently contacted cousins discovered through the
records of Shanghai ship manifests.

While I am new to this list, I have been very successful in my internet research.
I am searching for some documentation of births and marriages and would love any
pointers in the right direction. Thanks!

Clarification: INTRO - researching STERN, ROSENDAHL, PLAUT - also WERTHEIM #germany

E Roth <tooter.ted@...>
 

I'd like to clarify information >from my previous intro note (copied
below).
In fact, the towns I referred to as "Frankfort," and "Wehrda," were
not sufficiently specified. Frankfurt is, in fact, Frankfurt a.M.

Wehrda is, to the best of my knowledge, the town in Hesse Cassel
near Fulda. Death certificates filed in Hartford, CT, variously
refer to family members as coming >from Hesse Cassel or Wehrda and use
these names interchangeably.

Thanks for the many replies I received which I am just now getting to
answering. I'll also take this moment to add the family name
WERTHEIM to my list of interests. again, multiple intermarriages of
STERNs, PLAUTs, and WERTHEIMs are involved, and I'm interested in
learning what connections exist between branches of each of these
families. Of special interest is Solomon WERTHEIM who married Adelia
STERN and settled (for reasons perhaps someone here can explain) in
Belle Plain, Iowa. Adelia was the daughter of my G Grandmother's
brother, Jacob STERN. Solomon was the son of my GG grandmother's
sister, Biena STERN WERTHEIM.

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group.
I have a special interest in the community of German Jews who settled
in Hartford, CT. My GGG Grandfather Solomon STERN came >from Wehrda
and died in Hartford in 1860. Four of his sons also emigrated and
were leaders in the Jewish community there, and my research includes
major corrections to the published records concerning this family.
My G Grandmother, Julia STERN, married Charles ROSENDAHL (later
ROSENTHAL) who came >from Frankfort. He served in the Civil War and
was First Selectman of Hartford when he died in 1902. His father,
Henry ROSENDAHL also came to the US and settled in NYC, but I know
almost nothing about him and have found few records. Numerous family
members intermarried with PLAUTs also >from Wehrda.
I'm also interested in connections between the German Jewish
community in Hartford and in Newark, NJ.
Within the next year or two I hope to make a journey to Wehrda and Frankfort
and am interested in any advice regarding research as I plan this trip.

people (who lived at the seaside?) could offer Norwood
children a holiday.
Does anyone know the date of the JC in which the item
appeared?

As my maternal gt-grandmother was an Eichler, would it be possible to
find out if there is any
connection, however tenuous, between her family and Rabbi Eichler.
Her family came >from Germany.

A relative sent me a picture Rabbi Israel Eichler meeting with Duki and
Eli Beer at the Hatzolah Offices.

Any suggestion would me most gratefully received. I am aware that
there are members >from Israel on this site

Oh my goodness, do you people read your own replies?

If someone is asking for your help and they have things set up so as to
eliminate spam, you are saying that somehow they should know ahead of
time that you will help only if they make it convenient for you?

If you don't like their setup, don't whine about it.

What happened to selfless, anonymouse charity and random acts of
kindness?

==That's the whole point, I think. If you pose a question and hope for

I get annoyed at these rejected messages as well, but I have come to
realize that some of these computer users do not have the technical
knowledge to adjust their programs correctly.

==as for the folks who have their computer robotically inform me
that before my message can reach them I will have to fill out a
form with my personal info and then beg to be allowed into the
sacred sanctuary.
This is the specific feature I am talking about - I think these people
get a message >from their ISP saying Look at this great new feature we have
for you - no more spam, blah, blah, blah. So the user installs it,
and has no idea idea how to adjust the settings of their program to allow
in mail they might want to receive. All they know is the ISP says it
will reduce the spam they receive, and that's a good thing.

The first time this happened to me, I was trying to send something to
my aunt. I had changed my email address, and my new one was not
in her address book, so my messages would not go through. It took
weeks for her to get it fixed [ she had to get someone else to do it
for her]

==another alternative, if you think my approach is too democratic or too
liberal, is to set up a special site to receive only jewishgen mail. You
never know, you may be surprised by receiving an unexpected message >from an
unexpected person that will clear up all the genealogical mysteries you
couldn't solve.
Computers are great but also require a certain level of technical
knowledge. Many writers to this and other genealogy boards are very
knowledgeable about genealogy or history, or a particular family name,
but not so with technology. I think we just need to be more tolerant of
them, because I don't think this anti-spam problem will go away .

Going right along with this are the people who unwittingly report
genealogy message boards' email addresses as spam because they do not
understand how their anti-spam program works

my 2 cents,

Dear UKJGenners,

Way back in the 1940s I believe there was a
letter/article in the Jewish Chronicle asking if
people (who lived at the seaside?) could offer Norwood
children a holiday.
Does anyone know the date of the JC in which the item
appeared?
At the time, my family were evacuees in
Weston-super-Mare, and my Aunt Dora (Zimmerman)
offered hospitality to 2 girls at her home at 34
Palmer Street in Weston.
The 2 girls were Joan Watson (Watts?) and Suzanna
Stern/e. I believe Joan was originally >from London
and Suzanna >from Birmingham.
My sister Joyce and I also stayed with my Aunt while
the girls were there on holiday.
I think we were all about 11 - 13 years old.

I would very much like to make contact with Joan and
Suzanna if anyone has any information.

With thanks.
