ZIMMERMAN - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania #general

Martha LEV-ZION <martha@...>
 

I am in possession of a letter that D. Louis ZIMMERMAN wrote to the
Department of State in Washington on 19 July 1919. In it, he requests
any information available about his uncle Lemme HIMMELHOCH, whose
last known address at that time was:
at the home of MELKOWSKAO on Trastonskaya street in the in the city
of Novozibkof in the gubernia of Chernigof, Russia.

D. Louis ZIMMERMAN owned Zimmerman & Company, "efficiency and
management engineers". His home address was 616 Bainbridge Street in
Philadelphia.

Does anyone have any knowledge of the Zimmerman or Melkowskao
families, or of Lemme Himmelhoch?

Thank you in advance for any help!

The first Jewish families arived in Britain perhaps with the

United Synagogue writes here:

Daf Hashavua 23/9/2000 < http://tinyurl.com/7ts5n >

Or else they surely came with the Roman conquest, but even if they
did arrive with William the conqueror as late as 1066, your
expectation of great genealogical resources is not very reasonable.
;-}
Any suggestion in Simon Goulden's article is speculation - he is not a
historian.
That seems to be the same as I said. I merely showed the possiblilty.

btw, do historians never speculate, Nick?

It is only with the arrival of William Conqueror that there is a
definite record of rabbis and therefore an organised Jewish community.
"organised Jewish community" was not the OP's Q.

See, for instance,
http://www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/pre-1290/list_alpha.htm "Jewish
communities prior to 1290"
Thank you, quite interesting.

Further to this discussion.
About six weeks ago, one of my JFRA Israel members
(Ra'anana branch), David Schulman brought a book
called "The Lost Jews of Cornwall" to his presentation
on the early Jews of England.
I only had time to take a cursory glance, but found it
fascinating. Sorry I cannot provide the author's name.
The focus is on a lost period of Jewish involvement in
Cornwall area mining, with examples of terms used in
mining operations, all referring to Jews in some
manner.
Perhaps one of our UK members might be able to provide
more information on this volume and the general
contents.

Re: TRANSLATION PLEASE #hungary

tom klein <h-sig@...>
 

i find it very difficult to make out the letters (maybe you could post a higher resolution scan or more of the rest of the page for context?), but the first looks like a shin and the last looks like a heh. obviously "zoltan" would be a male name, so the only two male names that i can think of that might fit are "shlomo" and "shemarya".

unfortunately, i'm not confident about either one.

first, if you haven't done so already, register your family names in the jewishgen family finder. (there are some PRAGERs there, by the way.) my PRAGER relative (jozsef, grandmother's brother-in-law) is originally >from zalaegerszeg (which is near keszthely), and then cinkota.

you can check the mormon's archives online >from their web site, to see if they have b/m/d records for keszthely, in which case you can order the film(s) through your local "family history centre", usually located in one of their churches.

and you can also write to the austrian kriegsarkiv in vienna. they don't have everything, but they do answer mail, and will do searches on request. (there is a fee for this.) and be prepared to correspond with them in german.

good luck,

Re: WWI military records #hungary

Regarding Danielle James' question about military records............

I had also wanted info about my greatgrandfather who had been in the navy,
and wrote to the Austrian military archives:

O"sterreichisches Staatsarchiv
Kriegsarchiv
Nottendorfer Gasse 2
1030 Wien

They were able to provide me with his year of birth, date he entered the
service, and his company number. The archive informed me, however, that
after 1918, the Matriculation papers (which would likely have more personal
information as well) were returned to the countries that were no longer part
of Austria at that time - in my greatgrandfather's case, Hungary.

I then wrote to the Hungarian military archives:

Hadto"rte'nelmi Leve'lta'r
Kapisztra'n te'r 2-4
1250 Budapest

Their response was a very brief line informing me that they had no info on
my ancestor, and that their archives mainly had data of professional
officers.

Perhaps these addresses may be of some help. Good luck!
