Thanks Rachel,
County histories can be very helpful.

All should also be looking for local Jewish histories. The following
URL will show you a list compiled in 2000 by the IAJGS (actually the LA-JGS).
Searching the Library of Congress catalog may yield some published since then.

Seek information on Jewish deportations from Netherlands #germany

Dee Johnson <deanna.johnson@...>
 

Hello Gersig

The German Jews that I am interested in thought they had escaped by going to
Holland (Amsterdam).

Is there any site that would give me details like those mentioned on the
Austrian doew.at site for Jews deported >from Holland?

Kind regards Deanna Johnson, UK <deanna.johnson@btconnect.com>

Perhaps others are aware of this site:

http://www.alemannia-judaica.de/

but I have just come across it, and I'd recommend it to you. It's in
German and although it concentrates on German-Jewish history and remains
of communities in Baden-Württemberg, Elsass (in France), Schweiz
(Switzerland), Vorarlberg (in Austria) and Bayrisch-Schwaben, there are
links to many other areas in greater Germany, including Berlin,
Brandenburg, Bremen, Hamburg, Hessen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern,
Niedersachsen, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Rheinland-Pfalz, Saarland, Sachsen,
Sachsen-Anhalt, Schleswig-Holstein and Thüringen, as well as scattered
other locations in Europe.

For quite a number of locations, the information includes references
(with pictures and precise locations) to:
- Jewish cemeteries;
- synagogues, both destroyed and still extant;
- mikvehs;
- KZ memorial sites;
- Jewish museums, and so on.

There are also lists of Jewish history projects underway, local contacts
in many towns and villages, etc.

Very worthwhile looking at, in my view, assuming German fluency.

Does anyone know any men with the surname DEWITZ who might have had
Jewish ancestry? I am asking as I wish to locate men who might be
willing to participate in a simple, free, Y chromsome DNA analysis test
to establish whether they belong to a DEWITZ family descended >from Levin
David DEWITZ, proposed to be a brother of both my ancestor Israel David
LOEWENHEIM, and of Michael David WANGENHEIM, living in Tuetz in 1812.

Although I have been in contact with female line descendants, currently
I have no record of a living male line descendant.

I am also seeking direct male line members >from any LOEWENHEIM or
WANGENHEIM family for this test.

Thanking anyone for any suggestions of people to contact Regards

Otto and Helene POLACSEK are both listed in the Austrian Holocaust death
database (www.doew.at) as having died in Auschwitz. They were, therefore,
presumably Austrian citizens. However, they are not listed as property
declarants immediately after Anschluss, and presumably had already left
Austria. This is confirmed by their listings as having been deported and
perished as follows: Otto born 23/9/89 in Weenen was deported from
Westerbork in Holland to Auschwitz where he died 3/8/42. Helene nee Brand
born 30/7/01 (place of birth not given) was deported >from Malvines in
Belgium to Auschwitz and died there 15/1/43. The place of birth can
probably be obtained by writing to Malvines. There are numerous other
persons with the surname POLACSEK, including two in Austria (Egon and
Rosamunde) but I know of no way of determining whether they are related.

Hello Peter,

If Otto POLACSEK was deported >from Westerbork, Holland, he may have been
living in Holland for some time and have renounced his Austrian citizenship
or have been deprived of it. As for Helene Brand, the place she was deported
from is Malines (Mechelen), not Malvines. Jews were deported >from the Dossin
Kazerne in Mechelen. Information about the deportees can be obtained from
the Joods Museum van Deportatie en Verzet in Mechelen, http://www.cicb.be.
The e-mail address is infos@cicb.be. Or you can write to Miss Laurence
Schram at the Museum, Goswin de Stassartstraat 153, 2800 Mechelen, Belgium.

There was in Liège, Belgium, a Natan POLACZEK, I believe >from Warsaw, He was
deported and died in Auschwitz in 1943. His wife Chana (Helene) nee
Pisterman moved to Israel on 27.11.1984, she died in Haifa on 01.01.1987,
based on information >from Liège. As far as I know one son lives in Israel
and one here in Belgium. I don't know of course if they are related to your
POLACSEK. Kind regards,

Pavoloch and Fastov Families in Canada #ukraine

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

Hi ~

I am trying to locate family in Canada. Here is what I know:

My great grandfather ABRAHAM SNOPARSKY (SCHNAPARSKI/SCHNAPARSKIJ/SNAPARSKY)
aka AVRUM YANKEL bar YAACOV was born in 1875 in Pavoloch, Ukraine. He had a
brother and a sister whose names I don't know. The brother and/or the
sister emigrated to Canada and were there probably prior to 1908 when
ABRAHAM immigrated to the US via Montreal.

In the St. Albans manifest for 1925 I found a BORICH SCHNAPORSKI who crossed
from Canada and went to visit someone in Detroit, MI. He was 19 years at
the time. With the name SCHNAPORSKI he must be a relative, but I don't know
who to connect him with.

ABRAHAM married ETTA NULMAN >from Fastov, Ukraine.

Does anyone with family origins in either Fastov or Pavoloch have either
SCHNAPARSKI (or any of the variety of spellings) or NULMAN in their family?
If so, I would greatly appreciate hearing >from you. Please respond
privately.

Thank you.

Pavoloch and Fastov Families in Canada #general

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

Hi ~

I am trying to locate family in Canada. Here is what I know:

My great grandfather Abraham SNOPARSKY (SCHNAPARSKI/SCHNAPARSKIJ/SNAPARSKY)
aka Avrum Yankel bar Yaacov was born in 1875 in Pavoloch, Ukraine. He had a
brother and a sister whose names I don't know. The brother and/or the
sister emigrated to Canada and were there probably prior to 1908 when
Abraham immigrated to the US via Montreal.

In the St. Albans manifest for 1925 I found a Borich SCHNAPORSKI who crossed
from Canada and went to visit someone in Detroit, MI. He was 19 years at
the time. With the name SCHNAPORSKI he must be a relative, but I don't know
who to connect him with.

Abraham married Etta NULMAN >from Fastov, Ukraine.

Does anyone with family origins in either Fastov or Pavoloch have either
SCHNAPARSKI (or any of the variety of spellings) or NULMAN in their family?
If so, I would greatly appreciate hearing >from you. Please respond
privately.

Thank you.

NATHAN Family of Pittsburgh, PA #general

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

Dear All ~

You are a wonderful group and I want to thank you for the suggestions that
have helped me find missing pieces to this never ending puzzle called
family!

I now have some additional requests for suggestions or information. I am
looking for the descendants of Jennie R. NATHAN nee ROSENBLATT who lived in
Pittsburgh, PA. She was born about 1873 (the census record says in Russia
but it might have been Poland) and immigrated about 1889. I don't know the
first name of her husband. Her children were:

Abraham NATHAN born about 1900
Louis NATHAN baorn about 1902
Morris NATHAN born about 1906
Florence NATHAN born about 1909
Yette NATHAN born about 1915

I did check JGFF and wrote to someone who is researching the NATHAN family
of Pittsburgh; to date I've had no response. If anyone is familiar with
this family I would greatly appreciate hearing >from you. Please respond
privately.

Thank you and regards,

GORDON? and Warts... #general

There are Gordons in my family, and I was wondering if Jews might have
selected the name as a tribute to Lord George Gordon, the convert who died at
the end of the 18th Century (chronology would be right)? If not, does anyone
have any bright ideas (not sarcasm!) about where the name came from? By the
way, we can add to Western-sounding Jewish names >from Eastern Europe the name
Boot.

As for warts, one man's wart is another man's beauty spot: When I told a
cousin that our ggfather sold military accouterments to naval officers in St.
Petersburg, and was rich, he practically had a panic attack. I didn't dare
tell him that our gm spoke unaccented English when they arrived in the US,
thanks to her English tutors in the old country.
Of course if our ggf had operated the shtetl tavern and sold vodka
to drunken cossacks, as many Jews did, my cousin would have been
happy with lower class origins.
