Questions about German reparation fund for forced laborers #general

Sara Wenger <sara_wenger@...>
 

In Haaretz there was an article today entitled:
"70,000 survivors to get 2,556 euros in reparations" 
http://www.haaretzdaily.com/hasen/spages/443435.html
 
Does anyone know how to get more information about
this fund and who is entitled to the reparations?
 
My late father was a holocaust survivor who never
collected any reparations out of principle (so he
said). However I later found out that he had had to
change his name and identity to enter Canada after the
war and logic would say that he actually couldn't
apply for reparation for fear of being deported.
 
Through my genealogical search I have found huge
families that I never knew a thing about and it has
started to embroil me as to how their estates and
business were stolen and my father never received any
compensation whatsoever. Above and beyond that, he/we
actually suffered financially through the years and
could have really used the money.
 
So my question is - is there any fund that I can claim
as an heir to a Holocaust survivor? (He was Hungarian
and deported to Auschwitz as a teenager) Any
compensation that I can claim would not touch what was
stolen >from my father but it might help to vindicate
to some extent the irreplacable loss.

Re: Processing at Castle Garden #general

Stan Goodman <SPAM_FOILER@...>
 

On Fri, 25 Jun 2004 14:56:35 UTC, sdriller@nyc.rr.com (Stew Driller) opined:

Does anyone know about or have a reference to the actual
processing procedure at Castle Garden.

Where did the boats land? How were immigrants conveyed to
Castle Garden? Was there any type of security? Are there
interior photos photographs of Castle Garden during the period
it was the immigration center? Were there medical exams?

There are dozens of books with such information about Ellis
Island, but I don't recall seeing similar references for
Castle Garden.

Thanks.

Your questions, and many more, can be answered very simply by doing a Google
search for "Castly Garden" (with the quotation marks, so that the two words
are understood as a sequence).

If you do not know how to do this, it is really very simple and intuitive --
and is by far the most valuable resource on the Web: The URL of Google is:
http://www.google.com

My search just now returned 19,600 hits! Not all of these are appropriate,
and some are duplicates. Still, there are plenty of links that are very much
to the point of your questions.

Google is your friend, and can make your use of the Internet much more
productive.

daughter of Bayonne residents and Russian immigrants Charles and Nettie

I've had luck with U.S. census records, but little else. Sam's a real man of
mystery, so thanks for any help!

Translation #hungary

I just received information regarding my gggrandfather, Israel Korngut (b.
1824 in Pilchov), living in Circ, Slovakia in 1875. According to a birth
record received >from the archives in Slovakia: the child's first name is
listed as Eliasz Godel Korngut (b. 12-4-1875 in Circ). Mother is Temma
Korngut, with no father's name listed. "Godparent" is Moses Goldberger.
Under notes it states: "Graus Vater Israel Korngut". What does "Graus
Vater" refer to? Could this be "grandfather"?
Any input is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Yehoash or Heibish #lithuania

Chaim freedman
 

I am trying to trace families which had the rare Hebrew firstname Yehoash.
In most cases the name underwent a transition to Heibish, Hoibish. In
Russian records it appears as Gevush. In Polish records it appears as
Hovsha, although I am not entirely convinced that the same form may have
been used for Yehoshua.

In particular one of my wife's ancestors appears in the 1816 Revision List
for Ludza (Lutzin): Shmuel Super (born 1781) with the patronymic Gevush. He
had a son Yankel-Heibish born 1834 and a grandson Yosef-Yehoash born about
1835.

There is a tradition that the family Super were Soferim and may have
originated in Vilna or Linkuva. In Ludza they were also Liquor dealers
and butchers.

I have searched the 18th Vilna censuses (thanks to David
Hoffman's Jewish Family History Foundation) and whilst I
have found several Howshas, none suits the family configuration,
particularly in association with another common family name Tuviah
(variously Tevel, Guttman, Guta).

I would like to hear >from anyone in the Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus regions
who may have some connection with these names.
