Searching for FRANKEL relatives #general

Thomas F. Weiss
 

Dear JGenners,

On a recent research trip to Vienna I found the siblings of
my grandfather, Max FRENKEL, after many years of wondering if he had
any. I discovered that he had three sisters and one brother. His
sisters names were Leontine QUADRATSTEIN nee FRAENKEL (AE = A with
unlaut), Mindel ENGEL nee FRAENKEL, and Regina FRAENKEL. All three
sisters as well as my grandfather perished in the Holocaust.

Leontine apparently lived for a time in Saarbrucken, Germany.
I do not know if she had any children.

Mindel had a daughter, Augustine, who married Imre OLLOP.
The daughter and her husband also perished in the Holocaust.

Regina did not marry.

Max's brother Uscher FRAENKEL married Feige KUPFERBERG.
Uscher died in Vienna in 1924. The couple had two sons, Siegfried
and Hermann. Hermann married Franziska LACHS and they had a son
Ulrich Wilhelm FRAENKEL. The sons apparently emigrated >from Vienna in
1938 and a residence record in Vienna indicates that Siegfried went
to Belgium.

Does anyone have any information on any of these family members?

Please respond to me privately at tfweiss@mit.edu.

Osrowsky, Ukraine #general

Gordon Orr <gordonor@...>
 

I saw on a 1910 map of the Austro-Hungarian Empire a town named Ostrowsky,
approx. 70 km ssw of Kiev, about 5 km west of Belaja Tserkov, which is
apparently the birhplace of my gf Oscar Ostrovsky.
I have not been able to find any other documentation of this town, including
on Shtetl- seekers.
Does anyone recognise this place ?

I have phone numbers for two JGFF researchers who have not responded to my
emails and snail mail. Should I call these persons or would that just make
these persons angry? These persons have listed names and towns that bear
relevance to my own search.
What have you got to lose?

from another point of view: If they didn't want to help, they might have
told you that. As it stands, you have no real reason to believe that they
ever saw your letters and messages. Surely you can ask them by telephone if
they are willing to share information with you.

This is a fascinating study of a little-known topic which affected many of
our relatives during the Holocaust. It underscores their suffering and
death as a result of the unethical behavior by those who ignored the
Hypocratic Oath and societal codes of ethical behavior.
The spelling error is ironic: Sometimes indeed the Hippocratic Oath is
Hypocritical.

We are a family of Sephardic Jews living in the UK. I have traced my
descendants back to 1650 in Amsterdam. Prior to that, we were in
Genoa/Genova in Italy. Do you have any idea how I could trace my
descendants
to Genoa and understand how they went there originally >from
Spain/Portugal?

Szyja?? - First Name #general

Debbie Raff
 

In reviewing birth records, I have located the first name "Szyja".
Everything else points to the fact that this would be my great grandfather,
but this is a first name I am unfamiliar with at the moment.

My great grandfather was known as "Yehoshua" and "Osias".

I checked the Given Names Database and did find "Schaye/Sheya" that seems to
correlate with "Yehoshua" and "Osias". There is nothing spelled close to
"Szyja" that I could find.

Would I be right to believe that this means that the "Szyja" I found w/ the
correct spouse, etc. could likely be my great grandfather?

Thank you for your time,

FINDERs and WEISERs in Grabowo, Poland 1850-1900 #general

John and Tereasa Lenius <jtlenius@...>
 

I am looking for as much information as possible about the FINDER and WEISER
families living in Grabowo and Nowa Wies Krolewska during the last half of
the 1800's. Specifically, I am looking for the family of Gottlieb Finder
and Suzanna Weiser (Father: Jacob Weiser, Mother: Susana Rieka). I have
learned that these families were definitely living in this area at this
time, but I have been unable to gather any further information >from the
person who gave me this information. I am also curious what Grabowo was
like at this time and if it is still a community today. Thank you.
