For Hungarian Siggers, who have family >from that part of the former Greater Hungary which is now Ukraine, you might be able to access family resources using a
Cyrillic (i.e., Russian/Ukrainian) search engine, such as APORT (http://www.aport.ru/).

Using this search engine, I have located potential family living in Ukraine (that part which was once Hungarian).

The following link will translate Russian web sites into English. It isn't perfect, but it opens up a whole new world for us.

http://babelfish.altavista.com/tr

The Centropa website (http://www.centropa.org) has old family photographs and biographies of families whose origins are Central European. I found lots of new data
from Munkacs, >from Uzhhorod, as well as other places of interest to Hungarian researchers.
Lastly, the website Jewish History of Ukraine (http://www.judaica.kiev.ua/NachaloEngRus/NachaloEnRus.htm), might be of interest to those researchers whose families
come >from that part of Ukraine that was once Hungarian.

Best regards to all,

INTRO - Researching MAYER, ROOS, CULP and STRAUSS #germany

Sara Sumner <sara.sumner@...>
 

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have been interested in doing genealogy
research for years, but only stared to seriously look into things recently.
I consider myself to be a novice in doing German Jewish Genealogy research.
I live in a small Yishuv near Modi'in in Israel. My native language is English.
I consider myself advanced in using a computer. My experience in
using the Internet is extensive.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of 2/2 of my
grandparents, 4/4 of my great grandparents and 5/8 of my great great
grandparents (I have all the names, I am just missing the dates).

The family names and towns that I am researching are: (I apologize
that I do not know the areas in Germany, my German geography is very poor)
STRAUSS - Wilmars
STRAUSS - Barchfeld
ROOS - Chemnitz
MAYER - Neidenstein
STERN - Melrichstadt
FRANKEL - seeking any information about Sophia Sara CULP nee FRANKEL.
Unknown Town, Germany to Tilburg, Holland 1930s
CULP - Wupertal Berman
KAUFMANN - Neidenstein?
As I am just starting out, I don't have much idea what I should start
looking for. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Regarding "what to look for" - Go to JewishGen and read the FAQ by Warren Blatt.

hensive guide to beginning Jewish Genealogy research.

You can use JewishGen's great "Shtetl Seeker" tool to locate the towns in

another and where they are in Germany. Knowing their location will help you
understand how European history probably affected the lives and migrations of
your ancestors.

We have a few members with ancestors >from Barchfeld (Thuringen). At least one
of them is researching a STRAUSS family. That was not a large town. You were

Fire in City of London, 1867 #unitedkingdom

N.Landau@...
 

Doreen Berger quotes >from an article in the Jewish Chronicle or Jewish
Record of 6 December 1867 as follows:

"The sympathy of the public is entreated to contribute towards the case of
Marcus Landau of 5 Church Street, Houndsditch, whose furniture, clothing,
bedding and every article he possessed, including two sewing machines have
been destroyed by a fire, which occurred on Tuesday morning at half-past
three. The fire broke out in the lower part of the house, and Mr Landau
occupied the upper part. The man, wife and five children were reduced to
perfect nudity and they are destitute of every necessity."

My greatgrandfather, Marcus Landau, had 5 children by his first marriage and
so it is pretty certain that this is my greatgrandfather.

The strange thing is that my father had never heard of this, although this
event would be about 20 years before my grandfather was born (the first wife
died and my ggf remarried having 13 further children).

I was wondering where I might look for any contemporary records other than
this newspaper appeal. For instance, would this event be recorded in Fire or
Police records.

This is exactly what I wrote to Amy Procter who is a Senior Information
Officer at the London Metropolitan Archive. She has responded:

"Information >from this period of time is very limited and the best source of
information for such incidents is often the contemporary news reports which
you have already discovered. We don't have any police records of the
incident but within the records of the Metropolitan Board of Works there is
a series of fire reports which include the year 1867.

These are huge volumes and without a date it would be an impossible task to
find a record of a fire however as you had quoted the date that the article
appeared in the Jewish Chronicle I did take a look at two volumes:

- Fire Reports 1867 (MBW 1551)
- Copies of Reports January 1866 - March 1868 (MBW 1593)

Volume MBW 1593 contained the basic information that the fire occurred on
Tuesday 3 September 1867 in the premises at 5 Church Row, Houndsditch. The
time is given as 2 3/4 am. The details of the landlord of the residence are
given as Mr Dresmer and the occupant as W. Wright, Carpenter, whose
Insurance details states, "Conts - Imperial; Building - Unknown." The cause
of the fire is noted as unknown. The occupants are listed as follows:

1st Floor M. Lenden, Lodger.
Front Room, 2nd Floor, H. Seeker, Lodger.
Back Room, 2nd Floor, T. Sickerman, Lodger.
Attic, T. Valentine, Lodger
Basement, W. Medcalf, Winecooper, Lodger
According to the report none of the lodger's had insurance.
The damage to the property is reported as: Ground, 1st Floors and Staircase
severely damaged by fire; 2nd floor and attic by heat and smoke; basement
and contents by water.

Volume MBW/1551 contains the above information with just a few extra details
such as the call was made by a 'stranger' the fire was extinguished by
Firemen using 1 Manuel and 2 steamers. The water came >from a New River
Company supply.

The spelling in the reports is "Lenden" rather than "Landau" but as
information would have been exchanged verbally spelling differences such as
these often occur."

The fact is that the date of this fire is not the same as in the report in
the Jewish paper, the address is Church Street rather than Church Row, and
forgetting the name being Lenden rather than Landau, there is no mention of
a wife and 5 children.

Can anyone direct me to another contemporary source concerning this fire?

Thanks very much

The best bet for anyone looking for this kind of information is our local
Jewish newspaper, the Jewish Telegraph which publishes a "Roots" page about
once a month with inquiries like this. The website for the newspaper is
www.jewishtelegraph.com/

On the righthand side of the Home Page there is a listing of the newspaper
sections. Click on Roots and when the page comes up, there will be a
listing on the lefthand side with the details of all the back issues of the
Roots page which can be read in detail. The contact details for putting
an inquiry into the paper are there. People usually get very good results
because the paper has its own issues for Leeds, Liverpool and Glasgow and
is received in many other towns also. All regional issues contain the same

Hello,
My name is Stacy and I am writing >from Maryland in the United States.
I am trying to research my great-grandmother's family who had branches
in Manchester, England, Australia, and South Africa. I do not know
very much information about my great-grandmothers family. Her name was
Katie Chaitovich Genkin (Hankin). She had several brothers, which all
immigrated to different areas of the world. My great-grandmother came
to brooklyn, NY, one of her brothers went to Albany, and another
brother went to England. Other family members are located in South
Africa and Australia, but I am not sure if these were my
great-grandmothers siblings or descendants of the england branch. To
give you an idea of ages, the head of each of these branches would
have been born in the 1880's, and would have probably been siblings.

****On the Manchester branch, I have been told that one of the family
members was a prominent rabbi in Manchester, or possible London.
Another family member was a barber on the cunard line's Queen Mary, I
have contacted the Cunard line's archives department and so far, I
have not found anything. Also, my grandfather wrote letters home while
stationed in England. He mentions in his letters that anytime he goes
to "town", manchester, that he has a "dozen and one" homes to go to. I
have been told that their name was chaitovich, but over the years,
this name may have been changed or recorded incorrectly.

If anyone knows this family, or has any ideas of how I can further my
research, PLEASE respond. I have more information regarding the south
africa branch, if that may help. Any help, would be greatly
appreciated!

Peter FRANK - Liverpool, Canadian Sewing Machine Importer 1863 #unitedkingdom

Anne Frank <anniekfrank@...>
 

Peter FRANK - Liverpool, Canadian Sewing Machine Importer 1863

We are trying to trace my husband's family tree. We believe that his great
grandfather (Peter FRANK b.1836 in Germany) came over to Liverpool to be the
official British importer of Raymond Canadian Sewing Machines in 1863. He
married Margaret DUTTON and had children Henry, Charles, Peter, George,
Margaret and William (who died as a baby). He then married Sarah Jayne
Williams and had a daughter Louisa. Henry FRANK (b.1875 in Bloomsbury) went
on to marry Winifred THOM and he was a cattle feed merchant in Liverpool.
from what I gather there was money in the family, they seem to have been
very successful and Peter FRANK was classed as a gentleman on many census
records (as was his father back in Germany) so they could support
themselves.

We believe one of the sons, George FRANK (born 1869 in Liverpool) may have
emigrated somewhere (probably the USA).

Also does anyone know the best way to trace records of businesses in the
Liverpool area?

Thanks
