Relatives in Israel (was SWEARINGEN) #general

J&B Davis <bdavis@...>
 

Following on the recent rather sweeping statement >from Martha Lev-Zion

"And whether you are aware of it or not, there is not a Jewish family
on earth that does not have relatives here in Israel"

I wish to say that I have been researching my husband's ancestry for
nearly 40 years and have still not found any Israeli relatives for
him, despite going back 7 to 8 generations on almost all lines
(furthest back in Lithuania and Prussia in 1830s and London England
in 1722 ... (place of origin unknown).

However, it was only within the past 7 years that I discovered that I
had first cousins born and still living in Israel (whom I have met),
so perhaps there is still some hope for my husband!!

OPPENHEIM family from Iba, Hesse #germany

Jasla@...
 

I am seeking information on the OPPENHEIM family >from Iba.
I believe my relative Regina OPPENHEIM, born about 1827, was related to
Isaac OPPENHEIM, born 1816 in Iba. But I need help trying to connect the two.
Isaac was the son of Salomon OPPENHEIM and Giedel LOWENSTEIN.

Both Isaac and Regina settled in Baltimore, Maryland in the late 1840's and
early 1850's. Regina married Samuel NEUHAN. Any help would be appreciated.

Meimbressen Name Adoption Lists re. KUGELMANN #germany

Jasla@...
 

My question now has to do with the name adoption list for the KUGELMANN
clan of Meimbressen. If someone was named KUGELMANN and lived in a certain town,
before their name change and then took various different last names are they
definitely related? How did this work? Can I assume that all the KUGELMANNs
from Meimbressen were related to each other and perhaps brothers?
On the name adoption list for Meimbressen the following occured:

Beer KUGELMANN became ROSENBAUM
Jakob KUGELMANN became NEUHAHN
Benedikt KUGELMANN became KUGELMANN
Michel KUGELMANN became AMBACH
Joseph KUGELMANN became GROSGUTH

The beginning of a success story #poland

Modern <joachim.modern@...>
 

I would like to let you know how I'm tracing my family in Poland.

My grandmother, on the father side, names Rojza Elfenbejm, she was born in
Nowy Dwor near Warsaw, around 1912. Her father Icek Motel married two times
and had 11 children. They lived all together in a house and they were all
butchers. Between the first child and the last there was a gap oh 30 years,
so my grandmother don't remember all surnames, all children of each
siblings, especially for the older. She came in France in 1932, and many
members of the family perished in the Holocaust. She met her brother in
Israel after the war, and a nephew. We think that everebody was murdered but
we were wrong.

In November 2002, I found an excel file with 8000 people deported from
France, and I found a Blima Elfenbejm born in Nowy Dwor and deported from
Paris. She married a Tarnegul. We asked my grandmother about, she was old
and surnames sound bells for her but she can't remember if it was a brother,
a cousin.... So I contact "le mémorial du Martyr Juif inconnu" in Paris,
they kept all document about deportation. After that I learned that Blima
was naturalized in France, so I asked to see documents about naturalization
and I found that she was a sister of my grandmother, I find the names of her
6 children, one died in the french army, one lived in Paris his widow lived
always here but she never reply me, one was deported and no information for
3 children. I work on this.

In January 2004, a man contact me, and he said that he has a friend and that
his grandfather was Icek Motel...I don't know how he get my email but I
suppose on jewishgen or others website. So I found a cousin in US, Pesach is
the son of Herszel (a brother of my grandmother), Pesach lived in Israel
after the war and gone to US. Pesach's siblings were deported.

On Yad Vashem database, I found testimony submit about Herszel, Berl, Gitla,
Blima, siblings of my grandmother, so I contact the man who submitted them
and found that he was the grandson of my grandmother's sisters. I find
cousins in Chicago and in Israel, we complete together the story of the
family.

The work is never finished. This family was big (11 children each married
before WW2, with children, at least 60 persons, some immigrated in France
and US) , many were murdered and we lost contact with the war, 60 years
after, with the help of internet and database I achieve to repare a few what
Nazis have done.

On my mother side, my grandfather Szmul Lenczicki was born in Brzeziny, near
Lodz, famous town because of its tailors.

His grandfather was Wolek Lenczicki born in Tuszyn in 1835 and he got 8
children, my g-grandfather Icek Jakow was the last. Between the first and
the last child there was a gap of 20 years. My grandfather don't remember
the name of all his uncles and aunts as he never met all of them. JRI-Poland
was a great help for me to find information. I had ordered many acts, very
helpful for me. The first child among 8, was Bina Laia born in 1858, she had
97 years when she died !!!! she married 5 times !!! Her son gone to US and
named Szwarc, I don't achieve to trace him and his descendants. The second
child Szlama (1860) gone to US in 1912, I found him in the Ellis Island
Database and for the seventh child, I found on Yad Vashem a testimony page
for a sister and try to contact the submitter. I work hard !!

So I would like to say that with the help of internet and very sympathic
people who help to translate and contact people, it's possible to trace his
family, the work is hard but very exiting !!

The wedding certificates in holland are public until 1922. I think the best
way to find out who their parents are is mailing to the Jewish archives. The

Maybe he (Moshe Wetberg) can help you to find out who their parents were.

Deborah SCHEIMER, <deborah.scheimer@fnf.com> asks

I have been looking without success for information about Emanuel BAER
married to Eula RAY of France. I'm guessing they would have been born in
the early 1800s. They had a son Aschel (Asher?) BAER who came to the USA
around 1864 and then sent for his wife Fanny FISCHL of Bohemia around
1869 (Fanny was born approx. 1851-1853). We know that Aschel was born in
Alsace-Lorraine, France on 4 May 1831, possibly in a town called Sulzen.
He emigrated to Wyoming and later, Colorado.

Aschel's and Fanny's descendents are known. I would like to find any
records confirming Aschel's birth or marriage that confirm his parents'
names, or any records about Emanuel or Eula. These names were found on
Aschel's gravestone but we have found no other records of them.
Complicating this is that I can't find a town called Sulzen to begin the
research!

Thank you so much for any help or advice you can provide to aid my
search. I don't have access to ancestry.com or anything like that, so I
really appreciate anything you can send me.
