OPPENHEIMER- Wurzburg - INTRO #germany

Carole Brandt <brandt.cm@...>
 

Hello. I am researching the OPPENHEIMER family >from Wurzburg. My great
grandmother is Sophia Luisa OPPENHEIMER, born 9 July 1843, and was a
Circassian Beauty in P.T. Barnum's American Museum under the name
Zobeide Luti. According to her death certificate, her father's name
was Rudolph. I do not know the mother's name. She had a sister
Barbetta, who married Moses Seligmann and lived in San Francisco. My
goal is to find information on the family in Germany, her mother's
name, and determine when she migrated to the USA.

My native language is English, I am also fluent in Spanish.
My ID number is 802582.

I am planning, along with relatives >from the U.S., a roots tour to Bessarabia/Ukraine  in the next
spring. I am looking for a recommended company which could organize the tour, provide us with
suitable guides etc. The targets are Family and public Jewish heritage sites in Chisinau, Odessa
and Orgeyev. Does anyone in the forum have recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I have a request for assistance in my family research. After a long search I managed to find, through
the great resources of the JewishGen database, the grave of my father's first cousin, Sara Platsman.
She is buried in the Saint Lazarus cemetery in Kishinev.  Her parents were Hersh and Clara (born
Bogoslavski) Gurevich. I have found no other records for this family. Sara has died in Kishinev in
1988 and I would like to try and find any relatives of her - children etc., assuming they still live in
Kishinev (but who knows...). How could I get to such information? Are there any available sources
of personal information for the post-WW2 era in Kishinev?

Thanks in advance.

[unfinished] Interactive Map About Jewish Life in Germany - SITE CITE #germany

John Paul Lowens <jplowens@...>
 

A new collaborative website, Jewish Places, consolidates Jewish Life
in Germany in one interactive map. A prototype was developed for March
20150-May 2016 and the launch of the official website is set for
September 13, 2018, I have been able to access at the time of posting
this. The website is being developed with the Jewish Museum of
Berlin, the German Federal Agency for Civic Education, and the F.C.
Flick Foundation against Xenophobia, Racism, and Intolerance.

See: https://www.jewish-places.de/ The site is in German but if you
open it in the Chrome browser it will be translated. Or use a
translation service such as https://translate.google.com/.

The map opens to four areas: places, facilities, people and walks.
Some of the places have photographs which will be stated on the icon.
You can find places of Jewish life, learn more about the project and
participate by sharing photographs and texts. To learn how you can
participate see:

https://www.jewish-places.de/de/join. You will have to register with
your email address and username and password.

****This announcement is passed on for your information only.
Please do not reply with questions. For more information,
read their FAQs at: https://www.jewish-places.de/de/faq

If you register, with username, password and email address an email
will be sent. I found my email in the spam box, and I needed to
activate by clicking on the link. The email is in German but using a
translation service such as mentioned above made it easy to understand
and click where necessary. Note if you approve the site to know your
location it will take you to where you are and it remembers! Just
click again on walks, people, places or facilities and it will take
you back to Germany.

The Jewish Museum of Berlin is one of the participants in the project
and they also have a website located at:
https://www.jmberlin.de/en/jewish-places

This is an interesting project which is not complete. More information
is requested-that is how you can help. It can help you find Jewish
communities, synagogues and more for your research.

Thank you to Jewish Heritage Europe for informing us about this new website.

I have no affiliation with this project or its sponsors and am posting
this solely for the information of the reader.

Follow-up: Trying to find town #hungary

Larry Briggs
 

First, thank you very much to so many Jewishgenners who quickly gave some great input.

As suggested, I have gotten more information to add to my post. First, the name is Abraham
Bercovich who left Hungary in 1883 and settled in Oakland, California. He was born in about 1845.
I mis-understood the document i mentioned. It was a published in Oakland about the successive
generations of Jews who settled in Oakland and their activities. In that, it was noted that Mr.
Bercovich came >from Tobolfola, Hungary. I am sorry for the confusion â?? it was not >from a
Hungarian document or record.

Thank you again to all who have helped.

We have a friend whose Great Grandfather left then-Hungary to come to the US. The town he came >from looks like Tolobolfola.

I could not find it online currently nor could I find it through the Town Finder on Jewishgen. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Larry,

Lacking other information, I would suggest Tereblya, Ukraine, in
Sub-Carpathia. The pre-WWI Hungarian name was Talaborfalu, also listed on JG
Town Finder is Talaborfalva.

Re: researching German university #germany

Raphael Thurm
 

Shalom,

I'm researching my ggg-father Alfred BRIE (1870-1942) who was an
editor and journalist in Berlin >from 1900-1932. He was born in
Rawitsch and went to the local real-schule. We understand that Alfred
was very educated and that he eventually went to a university and
majored in writing. He and his parents later moved to Berlin and he
married into an established Berlin family in 1899.

I'm trying to find out more about my ancestor's education. Is there
any way l can find out which university he went to?

Thanks in advance, Raphael Thurm Brooklyn NY littletalmid@gmail.com

Yes. This is not the official birth record. I was born in Elizabeth and have a
certificate of birth (with seal and all) which I believe was issued by the hospital
where I was born. I guess this was the practice in the State of New Jersey. When I
needed my birth certificate for marriage (out of state), the certificate was not
accepted. I needed to present the full birth record issued by the city.
