How to interest relatives... #general

Michelle Fanwick
 

Good Morning,
Last year in my Rosh Hashanah letter/Card I sent every relative (about 200
plus) a family tree and told them how we were related. I enclosed contact
info for my self and asked them to let me know if I omitted any information
or there were any errors. I was very lucky and I received a lot of
responses. I try to contact everyone twice a year, I send a picture of my
family and then they know who we are and I think that makes them more likely
to respond to my inquiries. I also email pictures to new finds and I always
tell them how we are connected, before I ask for information. I also thank
them for the information that I'm looking forward to receiving.

Good luck and Happy New Year,

OXENHORN/GERMAN #general

AllanDolgow@...
 

My grandmother, Chaike( Ida) GERMAN (or HERMAN), was born in NV in about
1877. My grandfather, Meyer Isaac OXENHORN or (OXENGORN), was born in
Ostrog, Ukraine in about 1869. He had a first wife whose last name we
don't know and a son by that marriage. The first wife died and my
grandparents were married by 1897 possibly in Kamenny Brod. Oral history
is grandmother refused to raise the child,and we do not know what became of him.

When my grandfather immigrated to the U.S. in 1904 >from Kamenny Brod, the
ship manifest claimed he was going to his brother-in-law named Isaac
COOPERSMITH (manifest spelling) who lived on 73 Jefferson Street in New York
City. We don't how they were related, except that perhaps this was the maiden
name of the deceased wife.

If anyone has this information that could pertain to this contact me
directly.

Yiddish word "Ah-noos" #general

Lenn Zonder <lenwriter@...>
 

Subject: Translation of Yiddish word "ah-noos"
From: <lenwriter@...

<hekenvin@...> asked if anyone knew what
"ah-noos" meant. Like Stan Goodman, I don't know
either. However, I would venture an educated guess
that it is flaxseed oil.
The 2000 edition of the Cambridge World History of
Food records the use of flaxseed oil for cooking in
Russia in the 19th Century and the use of seeds for
making tea.
Actually, flaxseed oil was known to the Romans and
Greeks before the common era, and even earlier, by the
Egyptian Pharaohs.

It works if you have HTML on your computer and

But I can see where it gets out of hand in a group discussion.
I do not use HTML. I use plain text and have no problem whatsoever,
because the quoted material has ">" marks to distinguish between who has
written what. It's very simple and not at all confusing.

often give up as I no longer follow "who said what". I
would ban this outright!
Please don't.
I second this! I've never been on a group list where it was done any
other way. In fact, it is required to quote, then respond, then quote,
then respond, etc. It is *far* more confusing the other way, and way
too hard to follow the conversation, since it loses its natural flow.

I am new to this list.

I am searching for information about my family - NUSSBAUM. Some members
came >from Poland, but others may have been in Luxemburg for a long time.

The names include: Gustav Getzel NUSSBAUM, Helene KLEINBERG
NUSSBAUM - both of my maternal grandparents.
Any information about them, their roots, families, etc would be
appreciated.
Thanks.

Re: GOLDMANN, FRIEDLANDER: Upper Silesia to South Africa #germany

Roger Lustig <trovato@...>
 

Adam:
FRIEDLAENDER is one of the most common surnames in Silesia--67 entries
in the 1812 citizenship register out of about 4,000 total. Any further
information would help immensely.

Also, Breslau isn't in Upper Silesia. Depending on definition, it's in
Lower or Middle Silesia, as well as being the capital of all of Silesia.

The 1812 register has two FRIEDLAENDERs in Beuthen and 11 in Breslau.

There were 8 GOLDMANN families in this register, incl. one in Breslau
and one in Klukowitz, Kreis Beuthen. Also one in Myslowitz, which soon
after was assigned to Kr. Beuthen.

3 of the remaining 5 GOLDMANNs come >from Zuelz, which also had 12
FRIEDLAENDER families.

I'll look for FRIEDLAENDER / GOLDMANN marriages in Upper Silesia. Any
idea when these people were born?

Adam Yamey wrote:

The brothers Bernhard and Louis GOLDMANN were partners

The Goldmanns were in some way related to the family
of Isadore FRIEDLANDER who migrated >from Upper Silesia
to Middelburg in the Cape in the period between ~1830
and ~1860.

Both the Goldmann and the Friedlander familys came
from Prussian Upper Silesia, most probably from
Breslau +/- Beuthen.

I am interested in obtaining a family tree,
preferably, or some information showing exactly how
the two families, GOLDMANN and FRIEDLANDER are related.
