Rochester NY Research Help Needed #general

roberta rosen
 

Dear Rochester Genners,

I am hoping to find a kind Rochester resident who
would be willing to call the Surrogate Court
Office and order the retrieval of the records of
the 1926 probate of my great grandmother's will
and then, after a few days, go to the court
office (downtown on Exchange St in the Civic
Center) and copy and send the records to me.
(There is a copy machine in the office.) I
inquired about doing this by mail; the charge is
an unbelievable $75! I expect to pay all expenses
involved, and would be very grateful and
appreciative if someone is able to do this.

Thank you,
Roberta

Help needed: Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Dec 1944 microfilm #general

Lisa
 

Is there anyone in the group who has easy access to the microfilms of the
Brooklyn Daily Eagle? I would like to find an obituary on a relative who died
on December 15, 1944 and would also like to know if there was an article
written about his death, as he died in an unusual way.
If you can help me, please contact me privately at:

Many thanks,
Lisa Brahin Weinblatt

What Happened to My Grandfather in WW II #germany

Aufseeser <aufsee@...>
 

My grandfather, Carl LONDON, was a German Jew, who sought refuge in the
Scandinavian countries after the pogrom in Germany on Kristalnacht, November
9, 1938. He was born in Breslau on November 8, 1897, and left >from Hamburg
after Kristalnacht for Scandinavia, where he had business contacts.

I am trying to find out where, when and how he died in Scandinavia.

I have written to the Norwegian archives and have also requested a Red Cross
trace for my grandfather. I am waiting for their responses. I had previously
written to the Danish and Swedish archives and was able to piece together
the following story of my grandfather's odyssey so far >from their replies:

Sometime between June and August 1939, Carl LONDON arrived in Goteborg, Sweden.
from there he traveled to Norway and arrived in Oslo on August 20, 1939. He
stayed at the Mission Hotel in Oslo and applied for a Norwegian visa, which
was refused. On September 7, 1939, he traveled >from Oslo to Copenhagen
aboard the SS Frederickshavn under a German passport valid until March 9,
1940. But there was no Danish visa entry stamp, so Carl was not allowed to
stay in Denmark. Instead he was imprisoned and then sent back to Oslo aboard
the SS Frederickshavn >from Larsen's Place in Copenhagen on October 9, 1939.
This is where the story ends.

Some say my grandfather finally settled in Sweden and died there, but the
Swedish archives do not show this.

How I can trace what happened to my grandfather after he returned to Norway
in 1939?

Are there any resources beyond the various Scandinavian state archives?

Re: Rav Moshe FEINSTEIN had some Chassidic ancestry #rabbinic

It is true what Yisrael Asper said about the Chossid/Misnaggid
stance. But, family is family, so for the formality of a wedding,
everything is usually put aside and people come together to
celebrate. However, to honor those in the family with "kibudim"
such as being "mesader kedushin" (the officiating rabbi) etc, nobody
is usually that upset if one or the other wins out.

Reb Moshe FEINSTE N,A'H, >from what I understand was very close with
Lubavitch and there are many stories about anyone who dared say one
word against the Lubavitcher Rebbe. I believe he may have even
learned in a Chabad Yeshiva in Russia at one time (but I don't
remember).

Somehow, in Russia, he was very close with Chabad. (maybe >from his
family?) Perhaps someone knows this history better.

All the best,

Re Fried Gefilte Fish #general

Susana Leistner Bloch
 

This delicacy has been part of our family menus for as long as I can remember.

My mother would prepare a batch of Gefilte Fish mixture for our Shabat
dinners. She would boil it in fish broth in the more traditional way but
reserve some of the mixture to be fried as "fish patties /cakes" . The
boiled Gefilte Fish would be eaten on Friday night as part of our Shabat
meal and the cold fried fish patties would be served the next day at lunch
with salads.

I no longer prepare it for Shabat as my mother did but I certainly do it
for Rosh Hashanah and the fried fish patties are part of our "cold table"
when we return >from the Synagogue for lunch. I also prepare a large batch
of them at Pessach. My husband's favourite lunch and a must for his lunch
bag for the office.

All my family came >from Galicia but at my Litvak in-laws also prepared
fried fish patties were . Obviously very wide spread custom in the
Ashkenazi communities.

BLOCH #general

My partner's single name was BLOCH, but spelled BLOGH. She claims this might
be unique outside of her immediate family. She hails >from Dublin, Ireland
where the Irish spell Loch (Scottish for a lake) as Lough, so this may well
be the reason.

Sylvia Kaye <sylk@...>
 

Thanks to Stan Goodman for his ideas - Golda Manya's maiden name was
Dudelsak, and she was born in Ghliniany ....... I apologize for the
confusing way I wrote this!

....On a different subject, how sure are you of the name of the place where
this
woman was born? "Dudelsack" is German for "bagpipe", which seems an unlikely
name for a town large or small. It doesn't appear in my very large Soviet
atlas of the world, which is certainly very thorough for Ukraina, which is
where this woman lived........

I will certainly follow up the suggestion about the NY Times & the
possibility of it being available in Tel Aviv.

I had also wondered whether a coroner would have been involved in such a
case.
