Re: Looking for Joseph WEISZ #hungary

Robert Neu
 

Weisz is the most common Jewish Hungarian Surname.
Joseph is one of the most common first name. If you
want some response you need to give some more
specifics, such as where he was born, his parents and
or children name, the name of his wife and whatever
else you can gather.

Same general idea as for Joseph Weisz, though Armin
Honig is less common. If they met in Paris, where did
they live, why and when did they meet.

Abram Moise #france

Doug Mason
 

My wife's great-grandmother was born in 1872 in Boulens, Switzerland to an
unmarried couple. As a result, ggm was given her mother's surname, Guex.

My wife's family has no known Jewish ancestry, but ggm's father was named
Abram Moise.

Can I assume this man was definitely Jewish?

Re: Working Backwards from Certificate of Naturalization #general

Diane Jacobs <thegenie@...>
 

Dear Doug,

While this can be true, it is not always the case that passenger manifest
information will be in a naturalization petition file. Around 1922 the US
government changed the law and if you could prove you had been in the US for
six years or more, then you could apply for naturalization without the
certificate of arrival or other confirming ship information.

After 1906, all naturalizations were in the federal district court. You
need to find the archives of the district court in Albany (nearest NARA
branch -- either Pittsfield or Varick St. in Manhattan, I would assume) and
ask them for the naturalization petition. In the petition file, there will
also be a certificate showing the ship on which he arrived. Many NARA
branches have the ship manifests, whcih will show, among other things,
nearest relative left behind in the old country. Both of these documents
will be interesting to you!!

There is a certificate number, a Petition number, and volume number on
the document. It was issued Albany, Albany County, NY, in 1920.
What is easiet route to get the filing paperwork asssociated with
this?
If I am asking a "basic" question, please indulge me. I am still new

Lodz Cemetery #general

write person <nicki@...>
 

Hi Genners

I've hit a stumbling block. I've been trying to find my grandparents (Wolf
and Hudes ROZENTAL) grave sites in the new Lodz Jewish cemetery.

I know Wolf and Hudes are buried there. My aunt told me that directly after
the war she visited her father's grave (Wolf). Wolf died in the Lodz Ghetto
in 1942. He was prominent in his synagogue in Lodz and after the war the
remaining synogague members secured a grave and put up a headstone.

My grandmother, who also died in the Lodz Ghetto in 1942, is buried in the
Ghetto Field, so my aunt couldn't find the exact location.

I've searched the Lodz cemetery database online at
http://www.jewishlodzcemetery.org and couldn't find their names. However,
only a small portion of the people buried in the cemetery are listed so far.

I've contacted the Jewish Community of Lodz and asked about my grandparents
graves and their location. They responded that neither of my grandparents
are buried in the cemetery, which I know is not true.

Is there a place where all the people buried in the cemetery are listed,
other than actually visiting the cemetery? Any and all suggestions on how to
proceed and find the burial spots will be greatly appreciated.

Please reply privately.

The Tombstones Of Two Sets Of Ancestors VM6996-97-Rakoff/Steiner #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello to All

I have two tombstones photos just posted on Jewishgen. One is of
ancestors on my paternal side. Those would be Samuel & Celia Steiner.
The other is ancestors on my maternal side called David & Anna Rakoff.
I am curious if anyone can tell me what any of the markings mean or
translate any of the language thats written above their names on the
tombstones. I hope the pictures came out clear enough for you to read.
One was sent to me as a copy the other a polaroid.

Also if anyone thinks they may have further information about these two
sets of ancestors of mine please contact me.

Oppenheims Oppenheimers #germany

Laspalmasdave@...
 

Hello GerSig
I have recently joined the group. I am a writer and BBC journalist and live
in London.

My mother is an OPPENHEIMER and I'm contemplating a book project that would
describe the life stories of different OPPENHEIMs and OPPENHEIMERs over the past
200 years. The idea would be to illustrate two centuries of Jewish history
through the experiences of various Oppenheims/ers.

I have a simple question. Is there anybody out there with detailed knowledge
of any Oppenheims/ers in their family? Obviously the 20th century will be much
easier to cover, so I'm particularly interested in discovering and researching
stories of Oppenheims/ers in the 19th century. I would be grateful for any help.

Many thanks David Edmonds London UK Laspalmasdave@aol.com
