TUMIM, Fredda VOLASKI, and Harry BRILL #general

Miriam and Joe Bernhardt <miriam_b@...>
 

These names are all connected to my gm, Rachel BRILL EZEKIEL. Harry BRILL
and Fredda VOLASKI were wed, and were the parents of Mordecai Joseph BRILL
my ggf.

Eli TUMIM's daughter, Rebecca, was the wife of M.J.BRILL and therefore my
gm's mother.

Any knowledge of any of these families would be useful to me and to several
people who have written asking questions about them.

Thanks for any info.

I have checked the web site and find it very interesting.
The first 2 maps show Napolean's Army path to Moscow in 1812 and the Russian
Army following him back.
The second page shows nationality makeup of cities in Belarus Territory in
1897 >from Riga to Gomel. Included populations are Belarus, Russian,
Ukranian, Polish, Latvian, etc.
One of the other maps of Belarus further down the list appears to show
provinces in 1770.

Oceanview Cemetery in NY ??? #general

Joan Engel <jengel@...>
 

Samuel POMERANTZ, my gg uncle, was born in Kamenets-Litovsk in 1875 and died
on the Lower East side (Grand Street) in NYC in 1913. His death certificate
seems to indicate he was buried in Oceanview Cemetery (section R) - but it
is hard to read. I have located an address for an Oceanview Cemetery in
Staten Island but was surprised to find his family buried him on Staten
Island.

Could I have the name of the cemetery wrong? --- Is there another cemetery
with a similar name somewhere else? --- Would they have taken the body over
on a ferry? --- Is anyone familiar with this cemetery or with any burial
societies that buried people there? (The death certificate indicates the
undertaker was A. Livingston at 248 Grand Street.)

I have sent the Oceanview Cemetery in Staten Island a letter requesting
information but have not gotten any response. I am planning to visit the
cemetery but any information about it prior to my visit or any suggestions
for getting information >from them will be appreciated!

Siegfried ROSENTHAL; German POW in Russia in WWI; in the USSR 1919 - #general

Eva Floersheim
 

Bela ROSENTHAL, born in August 1942 in Berlin, survived Holocaust in
Berlin and Theresienstadt against all odds, but lost both of her
parents, as you can read in her profile that we have just published on
Missing Identity.
http://www.missing-identity.net/en/content/view/97/26/

For now I would particularly like any suggestions for locating
information about her father Siegfried ROSENTHAL for the period 1915 -
1939.

Imagine, this man fought for Germany in World War One, fell prisoner of
war in Russia during that war, was stuck in the USSR till he was
returned to Germany in 1938. Then started World War Two in 1939 and he
was sent >from Berlin to Auschwitz where he was murdered in 1943.

Germaqn POW in WWI
Siegfried ROSENTHAL, born 1896 in Mezhirichi (now Ukraine), grew up in
Berlin and volunteered for the German Army in 1915. He served in
Regiment No. 46 in the 5th Army Corps. Fairly early in the war, he was
taken POW by the Russians.
Will it be possible to find out when this happened?
The day the other German POWs were returned to Germany after World War
One, Siegfried ROSENTHAL had typhus and could not travel. As a result of
this he was stuck in the USSR till 1938.
Where can one find information about German POWs in Russia that became
USSR? Where can we locate Siegfried ROSENTHAL's military file in Germany?
Where would any information about possible negotiations for his release
from the USSR to Germany be kept, in addition to his military file?
Life in the USSR >from WWI to 1938
During the years Siegfried ROSENTHAL stayed in the USSR, he married and
had children and lived on a Kolchoz. His first wife probably died. But
what happened to his children when he went back to Germany? Will Bela
ROSENTHAL be able to locate these children - her halfsister/s and/or
halfbrother/s? How many were they? When were they born? What were they
called? Are any of them still alive? Could such information be listed in
Siegfried ROSENTHAL's military file as part of the information noted
after he was located in the USSR and/or after his return to Germany in
1938?
Would the Red Cross office in Moscow be the best place to search for
Siegfried ROSENTHAL's children in the USSR?
In other words, which German archives may be relevant for this search?
Which Russian/former USSR archives may be relevant for this search?

Thank you in advance for any help.

Have you tried the National archives (www.nationalarchives.gov.uk) They have
info on immigration and nationalisation.

The nearest available census you could view would be the 1901 census >from

available until 2012

I hope this helps

on to New York. I have been unsuccessful in locationg an online index for
searching UK immigration, naturalisation, marriage, birth or death records

Passengers on the Baloeran ex Rotterdam Feb 18 1939 #germany

Dear Researchers,

The web site below enables a search of passengers and dutch ships. As many
of our ancestors fled Europe by this means you may find it useful source of
records.

http://d-compu.dyndns.org/Passagiers/default.asp

I have recently obtained a list of passengers on the Baloeran that departed
from Rotterdam on Feb 18 1939 to various destinations including Port Said
and others on the way to Batavia. My grandparents were on this vessel as
the first leg of their escape >from Germany to Australia.

I have studied the list and identified what I believe to be other Jewish
names. I have listed these below. Anyone with an interest in these names
or other aspects of this list are welcome to contact me for more details.
I may have missed some or included ones that are not of Jewish heritage as well.
