Searching: WEINBERG, Romania, chocolate Maker, 1930s and 1940s #general

Dee Johnson <deanna.johnson@...>
 

Dear Jewish GERSIG and Genners

I am looking for sightings of the name Fritz WEINBERG, chocolate maker in
Romania in the 1930s on any records you may have come across. Fritz
WEINBERG was born approx 1880s and may have a connection with Berlin, as his
sister Anna lived there until 1938. I am also interested in reminiscences
of the chocolate(!), family history and information on his descendants.

He possibly emigrated to Holland in 1937, though as yet this is unconfirmed.

I am just beginning, so have not yet searched any original documents - I
need some help to get me started.

Regards

Deanna Johnson (177707)

Update WYGODA - Pultusk/Rozan - also families HOLTZMAN/JELAZNY #general

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Dear Friends,

New information brings me to up-date on the WYGODA family >from Pultusk and
Rozan.

Some of the family you will note moved to different towns, I am having
trouble locating the exact names, as those given do not exist, even after
consulting shtetl seeker and other resources, I am at a loss, perhaps
someone will be able to help me.

Moshe Natan WYGODA >from Rozan (wife’s name unknown) had 8 children – all
born in Rozan

Dena born 1904
Malka
Nachman
Itzhak Meyer
Chaim Shmuel born 1894
Silka
Surena (Sura Ena)
Laya

Dena born in 1904 went to live in Pultusk, married a Mr. HOLTZMAN and had
several children, known are Pesach, Yakov, Lilia and another un-named
daughter. What happened to the family is unknown

Malka moved to Poplova/Poplovich?? – across the Narev river >from Pultusk.
Married name unknown as is the fate of the family.

Nachman moved to Naydorf? – name of spouse unknown, as is the fate of the
family

Yitzhak Meyer moved to Pultusk . Found his, his wife’s and daughter’s names
in the Pultusk Yizkor book..

Chaim Shmuel moved to Pultusk. Found his name and that of one of his
children in the Pultusk Yizkor book. His other children survived and
eventually went to live in Israel and Canada.

Silka moved to Naydorf? – name of spouse unknown, as is the fate of the
family.

Surena moved to Pultusk – name of spouse unknown, as is the fate of the
family.

Laya remained in Rozan – husband’s family name was Jelazny? Although I can
find no reference to this name anywhere. Fate of family unknown

I have checked the Yad Vashem files but cannot find any reference to the
above names except those mentioned.

If anyone has information on any of the above names/families please contact
me.

In addition I have just been given the following information – although I
cannot find a connection.

Chaim David WYGODA born in Rozan approx 1897 son of Srul WYGODA and Feige
Gitel Zylberberg - married in Pultusk - Sura Leah DANIEL – 3/11/1925

Chaim David was 28 – Sura was born in 1899.

Again any information on the above families might tie in with the initial
family I am searching for.

Thank you.

Name Changes - Legal and Other #general

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

Hi;

I recently dug up (figuratively) some birth certificates and discovered that
Uncle Eddie was "Willie" on his birth certificate and that Aunt Bessie was
"Lizzie". I have encountered this many times before, as I'm sure most of you
have.

But I started wondering about the mechanics of these name changes. Could
Willie just start calling himself Edward without going through a legal name
change, without any repercussion for the rest of his life? He was Edward on
his marriage certificate and death certificate and Soc. Security. Could one
just decide they liked a different first name and to then use it without any
impact >from the fact that a different name was on his or her birth
certificate?

Despite many, many such seemingly "I like this name better" changes, I've
only encountered one relative who went through the formality of changing his
first name legally, out of maybe 50+ name changes.

Does anyone have any insight into this practice?

Thanks.

Sam

today the [U.S.] death certificate for my gt-gt
grandfather, Edward GOLDSCHMIDT [1848-1917], including
his and his parents' town of birth in Bohemia.... "New
Zetlich, Austria".

Jo Feitler >from Chicago has today added some

Tachau and Scott, you have now saved me a lot of work.

I feel vindicated in my conclusion last week when I
wrote about the 4 AUERBACH families of 1793 Bohemia -
three of which came >from the Pilsner Kreis:
"Statistically, we might assume that Fanny AUERBACH
[Scott's gtgtgt grandmother married to Abraham
GOLDSCHMIDT] came >from the Schonwald families, Pilsner
Kreis - but that needs to be verified with documentary
evidence. In the next posting, I will concentrate on
GOLDSCHMIDT and see if there is any correlation
between the names and the above locations."

I was in the middle of correlating GOLDSCHMIDT [and
variants] with AUERBACH and had written: In the
previous posting*, I investigated AUERBACH families in
Bohemia to try and pinpoint the possible places
Scott's gtgtgt-grandmother Fanny AUERBACH might have
come from. In the whole of Bohemia excluding Prague,
there were only 4 AUERBACH families.

Now it is the turn of his gtgtgt-grandfather's family
- the GOLDSCHMIED of Bohemia. Where could they have
come from? Eduard GOLDSCHMIED married in NY in 1878
and he was listed as having been born in Bohemia - his
father may who have been born as early as 1820, was
named Abraham GOLDSCHMIED and his father in turn, may
with luck, be listed in the 1793 census as a baby."

So now, finally here is the exciting news. In Gut Neu
Zetlitz [Nove Sedliste] living in Dorf Neuzetlitz,
Pilsner Kreis [cf AUERBACH], we find two Goldschmied
families:

Moises a leather merchant, living in House No 2 with
wife Rachel, sons [in birth order] Israel, Abraham and
Joachim.

In another part of the house lives David, [probably
his brother or cousin] a fleece and cloth merchant,
with wife Rebcka [sic] and son Isak.

One of the GOLDSCHMIED boys listed above [or an as yet
unborn son] must have been the father of Abraham
GOLDSCHMIED. Abraham listed in the 1793 census, could
I suppose also have fathered a son in his very old
age! All that would have to be checked in the vital records
in Prague.

In 1793, there were 30 houses in Dorf Neuzetlitz,
inhabited by 31 Jewish families, all Schutzjuden. The
connection with Tachau, which Jo Feitler mentioned, is
substantianted by two items found in the small print
of the census and by cross-referencing: Davit [sic]
ASCHERER in 1793 is about to leave Neu Zetlitz to
marry in Tachau. The tobacco concessioner of Tachau,
Joachim NADTLER, has a large family - four sons and
two daughters. His Schutz however is >from Neu Zetlitz,
where he appears in the census as Joachim ADLER.

I can already see Scott standing outside House No 2,
Neu Zetlitz, if it still exists! How exciting.

Many people worked on this project, but I would specifically like to
thank Harry Green, Claire Stuart and Leslie Oberman who were the
"superstars" of this effort and did the majority of the work. I would
also like to thank JewishGen for all of their support and especially
Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias.
