Re: family tree of a town #germany

Martha LEV-ZION <martha@...>
 

Steve, I have done that with the village of Frensdorf in Bavaria. I
got the vital records of Frensdorf, which gave the names of the
parents and the children and then I added information as I came
across it in the marriage and burial records. As people left the
town, they still stayed within the greater area and I was able to
find most of them and add to the tree. I am doing the same thing for
the town of Goldingen in Courland, which is much more difficult and "ifish".

After joining my wife's cousin in working on the family tree, I
noted how many Buttenhauser families are represented on the Family

genealogy site, each of them interrelated by marriage. I wonder if
any of the Buttenhauser researchers have ever considered joining
forces to create one tree for the town? If anyone else has done
this for their town, please contact me and talk about the practical
issues of doing such a project.

Searching: CLINTON/KUKLINSKI/LEVENTHAL #general

Janette Silverman <jsilverman@...>
 

According to the 1900 census, Samuel KUKLINSKI and his wife, Fanny
LEVENTHAL lived in Newburgh NY, they were both born in Russia in 1875,
had come to the U.S. in 1893, married in 1894 and had 3 children, the
oldest born in 1895, the youngest in 1898 or 1899. The sons' names
were Jacob, Robert and Abraham. Any information would be much
appreciated. The children were most likely born in Utica, NY and
Buffalo, NY. Family lore says that sometime around 1904-1908, the
parents and children left NY for Canada, where the father disappeared
and shortly thereafter the mother died. The children were placed in a
Canadian orphanage which served treif food which they refused to eat. A
Jewish philanthropist in Detroit heard of their plight, brought them to
Detroit and placed the two youngest in foster care. The eldest shows up
in Detroit on the 1910 census with the last name of Clinton, the others
begin to appear on the 1920 census with that name. The oldest, Jacob,
was in WWI - we have found his selective service application as well as
his social security application which has the names of the parents. The
story after they reached Detroit is fairly well documented (except for
the name change) in family annals. I have searched Ellis Island and
other ship registries, cannot locate adults with these names arriving in
Canada or the US in 1893 (or surrounding years), have searched through
librarians in Canada near the NY border, looked in newspaper sources in
Canada and the Buffalo area.

Any help would be appreciated.

German Jewish Refugee exhibition Johannesburg #general

Saul Issroff <saul@...>
 

There is a current exhibition under the auspices of the Goethe Institute:

"Seeking Refuge" documents the biographies of Jewish men, women and
children, who fled >from the Nazi-terror in Germany by emigrating to South
Africa and ended up settling in Johannesburg.
In this virtual exhibition you can see how their lives of these individuals
are linked to their home towns. It demonstrates how people in Borghorst,
Butzbach or Nordenstadt remember their Jewish neighbours, friends and
families.

from 2 November 2005 to end of Feburary the exhibition "Seeking Refuge" will
be open at the Goethe Institut, along with different events related to the
topic. It hopes to form a clear link between past and present, South Africa
and Germany and to bring history to life.

Czahary #galicia

jeffrey segal <jeff.segal@...>
 

My great-great-grandmother's family came >from Czahary, in Galicia. All I
know about the place is that it's close to Zbaraz, where she moved when she
married. Does anybody know the present-day name of Czahary? Trying the
JewishGen ShtetlSeeker gives me Zagar'ye/Zagor'ye (at 49°52' 25°25') as a
possible match.

I have a picture with some unidentified people who might be ancestors of
mine. I believe that the picture was taken in Grzymalow what was then part
of Eastern Galicia (now part of the Ukraine). If there is anyone that has
ancestors >from that part of Galicia that might know who the people are, it
would be most helpful, if they could identify the subjects. It is posted on
the ViewMate website at http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html. The
number of the entry is VM7136.

If anyone is good at translating German, I have a letter posted at VM7137.
It is >from Michael Laib Russ to Emil Russ. It was written in Grzymalow and
sent to New York City. If someone doesn't mind translating the letter it
would be gratefully appreciated. I can be contacted at rsruss@....
