GINSBERG- Dental School in 19th Century Germany #germany

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

A great uncle of mine Gustav GINSBERG (1872-1922),
born in Beuthen studied dentistry somewhere in
Germany, and by January 1895, was qualified, and was
working in South Africa.

How long was the duration of the average course of
study for dentistry in Germany in the 1880s and 1890s?

Which universities offered dentistry as a course of
study in Germany in this period?

This information will greatly help me with Gustav's
biography.

Viewmate file VM7431- need help with deciphering name #germany

Joan Zeller <jrzeller@...>
 

Hello List,

I need help deciphering the name of my GG aunt born 13 April 1855 in
Zuntersbach to Lazarus ZELLER and his wife Matilde EBERT of
Kleinbardorf.

I have uploaded a portion of the birth records page showing her name
(highlighted in yellow, second listing on the page). It has been
transcribed for me as "Cebeidta" but that doesn't sound right to me.
I'm hoping that someone familiar with Jewish names of the period might
recognize it.

The image is VM7431 on the Viewmate site and can be found directly by
going to:
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7431

Please reply privately, and not to the list. Thank you!

EHRLICH/LEVISEUR - Dentistry in the Orange River Colony. #southafrica

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

A distant relative of mine, Gustav GINSBERG
(1872-1922), who had qualified as a dentist in Germany
was attempting in 1907 to have his German
qualifications recognised by the British authorities
in the Orange River Colony (ORC). His brother Franz
GINSBERG, MLA wrote a letter on his behalf in which he
refers to,
"... a number of prominent men of the ORC can testify.
For instance Mr Ehrlich Mr Leviseur etc...".

To whom was Franz Ginsberg referring - ie which Mr
EHRLICH and LEVISEUR ?
Are they the persons mentioned on the SA SIG
website: <http://www.jewishgen.org/SAfrica/communities/8/>,
or possibly some other people with those names?

Were there any dentists around in the ORC at this time
with these names?

Thanks in advance,
Adam Yamey, London, UK <adamandlopa@yahoo.co.uk>

How to Research a 1905 NYC Address -- 27 Pitt Street #general

Sabra Waldfogel <sawaldfogel@...>
 

Dear Genners:
I'm looking for assistance in researching a Manhattan building address
circa 1905 (27 Pitt Street on the Lower East Side). I've pinpointed it
as a work address >from the entry in the city directory and the
naturalization record. I'm curious as to when the building was built,
who owned it, and who the tenants were (if they were businesses rather
than individuals) around 1905.

I've tried the NYC online property profile, which lists old permits and
changes, but haven't found anything for that address. The building may
no longer be standing. I'm planning to look at the 1905 NY census to see
who was enumerated there, and that should help.

Here are the questions:

* Is there a reverse directory by address for Manhattan in 1905?
(The city directory doesn't have one--too bad!)
* At which NYC municipal department would I find permit,
construction, or title information for a specific address that
goes back as far as 1905 or even before 1900?
* How can I access the NYC municipal information remotely, since I
live in Minneapolis?

Thanks for your help.

Len and Donna Pincus <lennyp1@...>
 

My GGM left Odessa in 1922 to get to NYC. She came by way of
Constantinople Turkey through the Greek port of Piraeus and on
through the Med. Have no idea how she got to Turkey. At the time she
was 70 and alone. She came on the SS King Alexander leaving 11 Dec
1922 arriving 8 Jan 1923. Can you imagine what a trip that was? The
North Atlantic in the middle of winter, Wow.

I attended services and cheder as a child in the mid 1930's at Cong.
Zichron Ephraim. If you contact me privately, I can give you names of Rabbi

someone among them may have already seen your inquiry on JewishGen.

From: Eden Joachim <esjoachim@optonline.net>

I recently learned that a Torah (or possibly two) in the possession of my
great grandfather, Cantor Wolf BARON, was donated after his death in 1937 to
Congregation Zichron Ephraim in New York City. This was accomplished
through my great aunt Etta BARON SOMBERG, who was very involved in the
Sisterhood of the shul and was good friends with Haddassah DRACHMAN, wife of
the shul's rabbi, Bernard DRACHMAN.

The shul, today known as Park East, informs me they do not have documentation
dating back to 1937 in order to confirm which Torah is the one in question.

Do any of you know if Rabbi Drachman's papers were donated to a library
after his death, and if so, which one? Alternatively, are any of you
members of the DRACHMAN family or former congregants of Zichron Ephraim who
may have access to information or knowledge of the above scenario?

Many thanks,

Moshe (Morris) Bersin (resent third time - for lack of Plain Text and a subject) #latvia

Mike Stern <mike@...>
 

I have had an incredible time with the new Latvian database, and perhaps
this is an opportunity to express my thanks to whoever contributed,
whether in time or funds, to the translation of the various lists.

The lists confirmed many theories we had about family connections of the
BERSINs, and we immediately located two branches of the family we were
not aware of - one brother's family who stayed in Rezekne up to the
late 30's ( while the others lit out for South Africa), and then made
Aliyah, and another sister we suspect went to the States in 1906, and
of whom we are awaiting confirmation.

Based solely on computer work ( and collecting information >from the
family) we have managed to determine that my great-great- grandfather
was Idel BERSIN who was born in Rezekne in 1815, and died there in 1896.
This gives us 8 generations for the Bersin family. I understand that
the next step will be to approach the State Archives in Latvia.

The KOPMANs are slightly more elusive, but we will get round to them.

I had no idea what databases were available for South Africa, and many
participants in the SIG have kindly enlightened me. Yes, there are
records for Morris BERSIN, who owned property in Plumstead and died
there in 1934, and records of his widow, Sonia, who left with her grown
sons and daughter for Rhodesia in the late '30s.

I have enough material to work on for the coming year - again, my thanks
to all who have helped me along the way.
