Dear Genners,

I am new to this list, but I am looking for anyone who has the above lady on
their family tree. She married Emanuel Levie STAAL. They are my great
grandparents. I would be over the moon if anyone has a photograph of her, as
I have one of her mother, and her daughter (My grandmother)

Best regards

The JewishGen Discussion Group is so friendly, so helpful, and so *big*.
I think that it would lighten the traffic and let us focus on new
issues if we thanked each other privately only. Also, a personal note
is more meaningful to the recipient.

Knopflmacher Stammbaum #austria-czech

rodihan@...
 

A few months ago, I was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of a KNOPFLMACHER
Family Stammbaum. It was written about 1905 by a distant relative, Moritz
[Mordechai] KNOPFLMACHER (1828-1910) of Vienna, and is about 65 pages long.
The first few pages, all in Hebrew (which I've since had translated), outline
how the KNOPFLMACHER family of Holesov, Moravia is descended >from Jehuda Loew,
the MaHaRal of Prague.

For anyone who potentially might be connected with this family, here are some
of the families that KNOPFLMACHER daughters, granddaughters, or other
descendants married into: GOLDSCHMIED of Nikolsburg, DEUTSCH of Mistek,
KURZ of Kojetein, WOLF of Mahr. Weisskirchen, ADLER of Holesov (later AGUILAR
of Spain and Portugal), BEER of Holesov, SINGER of Ung Brod, HAAS of Lhotta,
WOLF of Napajedl, GROSS of Geiring, GOLDHAMMER of Kremsier and Vienna, SCHNER
of Ung Brod, FISCHER of Holesov, SCHLESINGER of Zambokrat, LANG of Zambokret,
HOFFMANN of Klotschunska, MULLER of Vienna, ZERKOWITZ of Holesov and Vienna,
ORSTEIN of Wessely, BLICH of Krakau, DONATH of Lipthal, MULLER of Hullein,
KAUFMANN of Vienna, EICHENWALD of Vienna, KAISER of Bisenz, KAPP of Napajedl,
BERGER of Bisenz, REISS of Kolusow and Trencin, HAAS of Liborcsa and United
States, JUST of Ilava, MANGOLD of Postyan and Vienna, KRAUSZ of Bosacz, WEINER
of Ivanka, KANN of ?, HOLZMANN of Michelstetten, NEUGROSCHL of Bosacz, STERNER
of Neustadtl, SCHONER of Ujhely ("dann Debreczen"), HERZOG of Verbo, WINKLER
of Prossnitz, JELLINEK of Vienna, HERZ of Prostejov, FRIESS of Prostejov,
RUMPLER of Prostejov, HUPPERL of Prostejov. SCHNURMACHER of Napajadl,
GOLDSTEIN of Napajedl, POLLACK of Napajedl, STRASSMANN of Napajedl, BELLAK
of Napajedl, KOHN of Holesov and Wsetin, and many other surnames.

The Stammbaum also gives special treatment to the MORGENSTERN family of Strany,
the REDLICH family of Wiesenberg and Olomouc, the POLLACK family of Boikowitz,
the KOHN family of Wessely, the OPPENHEIMER family of Leipnik (many pages),
and the STRANSKY family (of Ronov?)

If any of these families and locations connect with the research that others
are doing, I would be happy to pass along information contained in this Stammbaum.

Bnai Israel Cemetery, Oxon Hill Maryland #general

A couple of days ago, I tried phoning the Bnai Israel Cemetery in Oxon
Hill Maryland using the phone number (ending 9603) that is in the IAJGS
listing. I got a recording that the number is not in service. I checked
some other online sites and got the same number.

Does anyone have a working number for this cemetery? Or better yet, an
email address?

NOVAK Family, Tulsa Oklahoma 1930 #general

eatwelbwel@aol.com <eatwelbwel@...>
 

Hello,

I'm searching for a woman named Freda Novak who lived in Tulsa,
Oklahoma in 1930. In the 1930 Census she was listed as a widow, age 47,
living with her son William, age 13. She was born in Latvia, circa
1883, and came to the US in circa 1905. I don't know her maiden name,
but she was a cousin my mother knew as a child. Any information about
her family or how I can find out more about her would be greatly
appreciated.

Thanks!

Re: Census Puzzle #general

nitram <martin@...>
 

I did a search for prwr and found that this question has been going on
for years and I could find no definitive answer.

According to my search three things are possible (1) prwr means prewar.
This seemed to be disregarded immediately because it was found on 1910
census and how would anyone know that a war was coming ... hence pre
war makes no sense. (2) pr wr could mean prisoner of war, and (3) some
individuals found grmy prwr on census' >from people they were sure were
from Russia. Some think that it may be an early means of some machine
presorting code.

However, I am intrigued and I will keep searching.

Castle Garden site #general

Judith Lipmanson <lipmanson@...>
 

The new Castle Garden web site is going live on August 1. It supposedly
will have a free searchable database for arrivals to this country in the
period 1820-1892 in NY.

They are accepting requests now for notification when the database is live.

Sounds like a good resource.
