Great response to request for help #general

EllnKahn@...
 

Three days ago I sent a request to JewishGen asking for help in finding
relatives in Belgium. Unbelievably, before my message was even posted (May 16), I
had received 4 responses and the latest count is up to 10 emails. The
messages came >from Belgium, France, The Netherlands, and Tucson AZ .

Several people not only told me where to research but also sent me exact
names, addresses and telephone numbers which they themselves had found. I have
drafted two letters and am positive that I will hear >from the family for whom I
was searching.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Can anyone recommend a good researcher, located in Germany, who knows
Jewish research? I'm especially interested in finding researchers

Don't know anything about the Prussian school system in the 19th
century, but I know that in Gothic script handwriting the "h" can appear
to look like an "f", my guess is therefore that the word in question is "Reife",

SIG Luncheon at IAJGS Conference in Las Vegas #austria-czech

Sharla Levine <austriaczech@...>
 

I'm just wondering how many of our members will be attending the IAJGS
conference in Las Vegas July 10-15 and whether you have signed up for
the SIG luncheon. The date for the early registration discount has passed,
but you can still register until June 25. We have a luncheon scheduled
for the Austria-Czech SIG on Tuesday, July 12, >from 12:30 to 2 PM, as
well as a SIG meeting on Monday, July 11, >from 9:45 to 11 AM. The conference
organizers inform that so far we have 15 people registered for the luncheon,
but we need a minimum of 20 in order to justify the room reservation and
set-up fee. I suspect that between now and June 25 we will have at
least five additional people sign up for the luncheon, but I'd like to
encourage those of you who may be procrastinating about your conference
registration to take care of it promptly. Those who have registered for
the conference but not for our luncheon, please have a look at the
preliminary schedule
http://www.jewishgen.org/LV2005/planner.htm
to see if the luncheon will fit into your plans after all and let the
conference registrar know.

Please reply privately.

Ehrenburger records #austria-czech

Michael Gordy
 

In the portion of my family tree rooted in the Czech Republic, there
are a couple of people who received the honorary title "Ehrenburger"
from the Austria-Hungarian government in the late 1800s. Could
anyone clarify exactly what this signified? And is anyone aware of
records (probably in Vienna) of who was given this designation, when,
and for what achievements?

Researching PLATTEIS/PLATTUS from Alsace #france

James R. Platt <jrplatt@...>
 

Hello FrenchSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for several
years and consider myself to be a novice in doing French Jewish Genealogy
research.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of various
grandparents and great grandparents >from Lithuania (via JewishGen
LitvakSIG), but recently was told by family members that they believed some
family members came >from Alsace in the mid 1800s. Unfortunately, they did
not have the name of any village or shtetl, which may make this research
impossible. I am also posting an inquiry on GerSIG as I know it also covers
Alsace.

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone who may be familiar with the name
PLATTEIS/PLATTUS.

Thank you.

Re: Vienna Cemetery Records #austria-czech

David & Diana Laufer <dlaufer@...>
 

Beatrice,

All that I can suggest is that you look up a copy of the original death
record on a microfilm at an LDS Family History Centre.
The relevant film would be 1347601 Vienna - Jewish Death Records
1892- 1895. In the final column "Anmerkung" there MAY be some
information additional to that given by Ms Weiss of the IKG.

regards

David Laufer

I have noted in replies to Suzanne's original request for information
on the name STREUSLER a couple of alternate spellings, one
of which was STREISSLER.

In the publication "Totenbuch Theresienstadt - Deportierte aus
O(umlaut)sterreich" there is mention of a
Rosalie STREISSLER, born on17.10.1879
transported >from Vienna to Theresienstadt on 10.10.1942;
and further transported >from there to Auschwitz on 23.10.1944.
