Date   

Naturalizations France #france

Micheline GUTMANN
 

I have to precise that this means only that the date and number correponding
to naturalizations are on line.
But to each decret correspond an important file of several pages of
information about the people directly concerned and also their family,
parents, brothers, children..
These complete files must be asked to the national archives, at Pierrefitte,
north of Paris. Possible to go with metro. You ask and wait for them that
you can go and see.
Then you can go and take photos. We often do it.

Re: nickname for Miriam? #names

Miriam Bulwar David-Hay
 

How could I resist jumping in here? :) Dr. Joseph Ash is correct. Maryam is not a nickname for Miriam but a variation of the same name. Miriam is just the commonly accepted English version of the original biblical Hebrew name. I’ve seen Mariem, Marjem and Mariyam in Polish Jewish documents, Maryam in transliterated Arabic, Myriam in French, and others. They’re all the same name, just with different pronunciations and spellings.

Nicknames generally shorten the name and/or add a diminutive. You might see Mirel or Mireleh (Yiddish), Mira (Yiddish and Hebrew), Miri (Hebrew), Manya (Polish and Russian), Mariuma (Arabic), and many others.


The name Maria or Mary of course originated from Miriam, and it has its own variations and nicknames in various languages.

All the best,
Miriam BULWAR DAVID-HAY,

(UK) Wiener Holocaust Library-Jewish Resistance to the Holocaust #announcements #holocaust #unitedkingdom

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

The Wiener Holocaust Library is one of the world's leading and most extensive archives on the Holocaust and Nazi era.  Formed in 1933, the Library's unique collection of over one million items includes published and unpublished works, press cuttings, photographs and eyewitness testimony. The Museum is located in London, England,  United Kingdom,

 

The Wiener Holocaust Library’s current exhibition (6 August -30 November 2020) is Jewish Resistance to the Holocaust.

 

During the Holocaust, Jewish partisan groups and underground resistance networks launched attacks, sabotage operations and rescue missions. Resistance groups in ghettos organized social, religious, cultural and educational activities and armed uprisings in defiance of their oppressors. In death camps, in the most extreme circumstances, resisters gathered evidence of Nazi atrocities and even mounted armed rebellions.”


While one has to personally visit the Museum to explore the exhibit their website has a ~4 minute video on the exhibit:

https://wienerlibrary.co.uk/Jewish-Resistance

 

For those who may visit the Museum in person, due to the pandemic, you must have a pre-booked viewing slot. 


To learn more about the exhibit see the aforementioned URL and how to make a reservation to tour the exhibit see:

The Smithsonian Magazine has an article about the exhibit which can be read at:

Re: WWII Evacuees LitvakSIG record #lithuania #records

There are at several books about 16th Division, mostly in Lithuanian, perhaps there were some books written in Yiddish and Hebrew.  Also, check the message archives (always a  good idea). I think the topic has been brought before. Querying Russian databases such as pamyat-naroda.ru may reveal a lot of information, especially if a person was awarded for valor.

 

Good luck!

Bolechov Chassidism #holocaust #poland #rabbinic

Tzvi Schnee
 

My great great grandfather, Yaakov Schnee was a chassidic rabbi in Bolechov, Poland. Although he had semicha, in all likelihood he did not lead a congregation. Yet, I am interested in knowing to what chassidic dynasty he belonged. I am inclined to think that he was a Bolechover chassid, since that may have been the most prolific chassidic cloize in Bolechov, under the authority of Rabbi Schneebalg. However, there were other chassidic cloizes (courts) in Bolechov. If anyone can direct me to sources, that might shed light on this question, I would greatly appreciate the advice.
Thank you very much. 
Shalom, Tzvi Fievel

Seeking Birth Records for Paternal Grandmother Ernestina STECKMAN(N) or Her Siblings #records #galicia

Linda Habenstreit
 

I am seeking the birth record for my paternal grandmother and/or her siblings. According to the SS Ryndam ship’s manifest, Ernestina STECKMAN immigrated to the United States from Rotterdam on  on 10/7/1911. The town/city that is listed as her last place of residence is Liczkowce, Galicia, Austria. According to the SSDI, Ernestina/Esther/Ester Steckman was born on 4/22/1891 and died on 3/4/1981. She married my paternal grandfather Refuel HEBENSTREIT born 3/19/1888 in Belzec, Galicia, Austria, on 4/17/1917.

 

Ernestina/Esther/Ester was one of five children born to Josel/Josef STEKMANN and Brana/Brono BECKER. According to the JRI-Poland database for Tarnopol Wojewodztwo, Josel Stekmann was born on 1/1865 in the town of Husiatyn, Galicia, Austria.

 

Ernestina/Esther/Ester Steckman's siblings were:

1. Sime/Sune/Sadie STEKMANN immigrated to the United States from Rotterdam on the SS Rotterdam on 10/14/1912. The town/city that is listed as her last place of residence is Liczkowce, Austria. According to the SSDI, Sime/Sune/Sadie was born 10/14/1893, died 8/15/1989. According to her Petition for Naturalization, she was born in Litckowica, Galicia, Austria. She married Samuel WEBER on 11/17/1917.

2. Celia Steckman stayed in Galicia, Austria, She married a man with the last name HOFFMAN/HOFMAN and had a daughter, Sarah born in 1938.

3. Schemdel/Jenny/Jennie STECHMANN immigrated to the United States from Rotterdam on the SS Potsdam on 7/3/1913. The town/city that is listed as her last place of residence is Liczkoweze, Austria. According to her obituary, Schemdel/Jenny/Jennie was born on 10/16/1898 and died on 5/28/1976. She married James GORDON.

4. Leon STECKMAN stayed in Galicia, Austria. He may have been born in 1903, he married a woman from Warsaw, Poland, who was born in 1913, he traveled to the city of Czernuwitz, Romania in the 1930s with his wife and cousins Malche LINKER and Anna MELTZER, and he may have been living in France in the 1940s.

5. Chaim/Hyman Itzik STECKMAN stayed in Galicia, Austria. He may have been born in 1906.

 

According to the Gesher Galicia's Galicia Town Locator, the Galician Town Liczkowce is in the Administrative and Judicial District of Husiatyn, the Roman Catholic Center is in Liczkowce, the Jewish Center is in Husiatyn, and the Greek Catholic Center is in Trybuchowce.  Therefore, the records of my Jewish ancestors, who lived in Liczkowce, Galicia, Austria, were kept in Husiatyn, Galicia, Austria.

 

I reviewed 19 birth records, as well as 5 census records, 13 death records, 11 marriage records, and 3 property records, I found after a Unified Search on JewishGen.org of the surname Steckman. None of those records are my ancestors. 


When I did a Gesher Galicia Inventory Search of Husiatyn and the town of Liczkowce, I found the following, which are not scanned by JRI-Poland or Gesher Galicia. Where do I go to review these records below?

Re: How To Document A (Given) Name Change #names

jbonline1111@...
 

Actually, one can change one's name with or without the courts at any time, as long as it is not for fraudulent purposes.  My father's first name was changed when he was three year olds--we assume ill health--and he and his brothers changed their last name around 1940.  They were first generation Americans.  None of them had their names changed in court, but my father used his "adopted" name when he entered the service.  Only Social Security used his original name.

Hi Alan,

The passenger directly above Samuel RINSCHEK is from the same town.  HIs name is Hirsch MENDELSOHN, age 17.

You may want to research HIrsch to see if he connects to your known family.

Perhaps the town on the RINSCHEK manifest is Strzyzow, which is 15 miles to Rzeszow, and 27 miles to Przeclaw.

Re: What port when leaving Europe #hungary

Sally Bruckheimer
 

Lots of Jews from Eastern Europe left from Libau, Antwerp, Rotterdam. I assume that they had train tickets for Antwerp and Rotterdam, or took boats. Hamburg was about half the emigrants, and Bremen was big, but any port that could get people further west was fine. Mostly people got tickets from emigration agents, who sold tickets for certain boats for different prices and tickets for the train.

Western Europeans left from Le Havre and other ports in the west - there was no point in going east to Hamburg to go west, but people in the middle had choices. 

Checking the NYC (or other US) passenger list will tell you where the ship came from, then you have to figure out how your people got to that (or those) cities.
