Announcing the Obermayer German Jewish History Awards for 2006 #germany

Arthur Obermayer <obermayer@...>
 

The German-Jewish Community History Council, GerSIG and the Berlin
Parliament are pleased to announce their Call for Nominations for the
annual Obermayer German Jewish History Awards to be given to non-Jewish
Germans who have made extraordinary contributions to preserving the
Jewish history, culture, cemeteries and synagogues in their local
communities.

Thousands of Germans have carried out such activities as volunteers because
they feel it is the right thing to do - the preservation of Jewish material
is one of the few ways in which they can respond constructively to their
country's horrible past.

We, as Jewish genealogists, have been the recipients of their good work.
This award provides Jews throughout the world with the opportunity to recognize
and honor German individuals who, in many cases, have devoted their lifetimes
to such important endeavors.

The deadline for submission of nominations is September 20, 2005.

Many of you previously submitted worthy nominations. Those nominees who
have already received Certificates of Commendation are prime candidates
for this year's awards, and will only require updating of the submissions.

This will be the sixth year for such awards, which will be given on
January 25, 2006. Each awardee and their spouse will be invited on an
all expenses paid trip to Berlin to receive the award at the Plenary
Chamber of the Abgeordnetenhaus, the home of the Berlin Parliament. The
honorees will receive a framed certificate and an honorarium to be used
for the furtherance of their work. Awardees' contributions will be
described to attendees and to the local, national and international news media.

These awards have in the past received extensive coverage in American
newspapers, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Miami
Herald, and the Boston Globe. It has also received coverage by the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, the Associated Press, and a great many German
daily and weekly newspapers, as well as specific articles in American
Jewish weeklies, as well as numerous overseas newspapers, such as
Ha'aretz and the Jerusalem Post.

If you know someone who may be appropriate for nomination, further
information -- including the Call for Nominations and profiles of
previous award winners and the jury -- can be obtained at:

You may obtain a hard copy of the Call for Nominations by sending an

Street, West Newton, MA 02465 USA or to Lother Funke, Referat Protokoll,

Remember that the deadline for submission
of nominations is September 20, 2005.

SZPILMAN or GOLDSZTEJN or MAKOWER?? #general

marty <meyers01@...>
 

Wigdor ZYLBERMAN married Ryfka MAKOWER in Przasnysz in 1844.
Ryfka's parents were Boruch Szymkowicz and Ruchel bat Jakob.
They lived in the shtetl of Romany Dzialo and their childrens' births were
recorded in Chorzele. In 1845-57, Ryfka is listed as Ryfka daughter of
Boruch.
However, in 1862 she is recorded as Ryfka SZPILMAN for the births of
Aron and Nosek and when Srol Jankief was born in 1863, she was recorded as Ryfka
GOLDSZTEJN.

Apparently, surnames were a bit variable here, but now I have two
additional surnames.

If this is familiar to anyone, please contact me privately at

Krakow-Businesscard of My Grandfather on Electronic Polish Auction #general

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dera Genners and Galicianers,
I am researching my maternal family KOENIGSBUCH from
Brzesko and Krakow.Last Sunday I got a Google alert
about a new KOENIGSBUCH on the web.It was an
announcement of a Polish electronic auction site which
offered a business card of my late grandfather Ascher
Koenigsbuch(1888-1942) who had a business of
artificial flowers and leaves in Krakow.The Polish
website is only in Polish and one has to
register(there is an option to choose a country like
in JGFF or Mapquest but the zipcode has to be a Polish
one...).
Well,I managed somehow to send them an email,just to
receive an automatic response that they'll return to
me between 24-48 hours(they did).Being impatient and
excited I found my way to a friend in Warsaw who will
purchase the card for me.
Finally we'll have something tangible >from our
grandfather.

Click on "databases" on the left side. There is a link to Southern

Does anyone know to whom I would request a copy of a Naturalization
Petition? I have the Microfilm ID # and the Record Group # for the National
Archives and I have the Certificate # and the Petition #. But, I don't know
where to send the request or who I should call?

The petition was filed in 1917 by my grandfather in the Southern District
Court of New York. The NYC Archives web site said that all Naturalization
records are at the National Archives in Washington DC. I searched the
National Archives web site to try to find an address or phone # to request a
copy, but I could not find that information.

Any help would be appreciated.

SZPILMAN or GOLDSZTEJN or MAKOWER?? #poland

marty <meyers01@...>
 

Wigdor ZYLBERMAN married Ryfka MAKOWER in Przasnysz in 1844.
Ryfka's parents were Boruch Szymkowicz and Ruchel bat Jakob.
They lived in the shtetl of Romany Dzialo and their childrens' births were
recorded in Chorzele. In 1845-57, Ryfka is listed as Ryfka daughter of
Boruch.

However, in 1862 she is recorded as Ryfka SZPILMAN for the births of
Aron and Nosek and when Srol Jankief was born in 1863, she was recorded
as Ryfka GOLDSZTEJN.

Apparently, surnames were a bit variable here, but now I have two
additional surnames.
