INTRO - Seeking WOOLF - E. Germany or Poland > UK in 18th century #germany

Clive Henly <clive@...>
 

Hello everyone,
My name is Clive, and I have just joined this group. I have been
tracing my family history for about 30 years, but have made little
headway with the WOOLF family who lived in Exeter and Plymouth
(in Devon, England).

As a family we have always believed that Isaac WOOLF, who was
born around 1790, was born in East Germany or Poland, and came over
to England in the early nineteenth century. Although I haven't been
able to find him in the census, I have found Marcus WOOLF (born
around 1781 - 1786), who I believe was his brother, and he claimed
in the 1851 census to have come >from Poland. Isaac had several
children including William (who was a teacher at the synagogue in
Plymouth) and Ezekiel (possibly named after the teacher
Ezekiel Abraham Ezekiel). Another son, Michael (1825-1903) was my
gr-gr-grandfather. Many members of the family worked in the jewellery
and watchmaking trades.

I would be very interested in corresponding with people whose ancestors
emigrated >from the East Germany and Poland area, and who settled in
the south-west of England. I was looking at a map of Europe yesterday,
and it would have been a very long journey overland in order to get to
a port >from which they could sail to that part of England 96 I wonder
what route they took and what their "incentive" was to move to Plymouth
and Exeter.

Other names whichappear in the Exeter/Plymouth area at the same time
are COHEN, EZEKIEL, SOLOMON, ISRAEL, SILVERSTONE,
ALEXANDER and EMANUEL, all of whom came >from Poland in the
last part of the eighteenth century. With best wishes to all,

Thank you to all who answered my request for the location of some

cannot find Weidenreich, Wiesbach, Bonfeld and one has been added: Stebback
These do not seem to be mentioned on cemetery lists or maps,
or current zip information.
Not exactly correct:
The contemporary German zip code book has two listings for Wiesbach:
66894 Wiesbach, Pfalz
66571 for Wiesbach, Saar within Eppelborn

and there is a

56579 Bonefeld as well as a 75050 Stebbach within Gemmingen. I hope that helps

A unique features that have characterized shtetls were their economical

(known as Rynek) were residents of the surrounding villages could
sell/exchange their agricultural products and the livestock, and procure
'town' items manufactured locally or imported by shtetls dwellers.
I've received several emails pointing that Jews and Gentles have been
residing in a separate shtetls sections.

I thought that it was obvious. Jewish people have developed the shtetls and
have been occupying dwellings surrounding or adjacent to a marketplace,
where most of their daily and the religious activities took the place.
Gentiles have been occupying shtetls suburbia.

Situation has been reversed in the old established towns and cities of the
Central Europe, where Jews have been residing in the ghettos usually located
outside of the medieval towns gates.

Thank you to all who answered my request for the location of some
German towns; most answered privately. After all that help, I still
cannot find Weidenreich, Wiesbach, Bonfeld and one has been added: Stebback
These do not seem to be mentioned on cemetery lists or maps,
or current zip information.
Here are a few sources for these places:

The geoserver provides locations for places in Germany, both current and
historic. Send email to geo@genealogy.net with the contents of your email
only the place names, one on each line.

I posted to Gersig a few years ago lists of German towns that historically
had Jewish populations for Baden and for Wuerttemberg. Searching the sig
archives will find those lists as well as other posts about these towns.

Google searches for these town names will turn up many hits. Berlichingen
has over 100,000 hits, Bonfeld has over 8000, etc.

http://www.wikipedia.de is a self service encyclopedia in German about
German subjects. You'll find entries for many German towns there.

BTW, Stebback is Stebbach, and try Weisbach for Wiesbach.

Kurt Gerron-Theresienstadt #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

When asking questions about the Holocaust, it is always a good idea to start
with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum web site. There, they have an
enormous amount of information about the camps and other matters relating to
the Holocaust. In fact, there are numerous photographs of Theresienstadt
including stills >from the movie produced by Kurt Gerron. There is also a
Theresienstadt time line which explains what you want to know, i.e., that
transports out did stop, but more people were transported into the camp and
these were the ones that were liberated in May, 1945.

Publishing letters from the camps #general

ben forman <ben.forman@...>
 

Hi Genners

Replying to Denise's email earlier I once again delved into the letters
I have which were sent >from wartime Berlin and Thereseinsdadt form My
GGPs to my Grandmother in England. These letters are a testimony to the
ways that Jews lived, died, survived and continue to survive, and my
family and I often talk about trying to get them published.
Can any of you offer any advice for publishers in England who may be
interested in such a project?

Thanks

Ben

Dear Don,

I am aware of a large SCHIPPER/SCHUPPER family that lived in Dubiecko and
Kanczuga. If you are aware of a connection between your family and either
of those places, or if you wish to compare given names in the families,
please contact me privately.
