Cyrillic #general

Larry <lpsca@...>
 

Since back in the early 1900's when my grandfather lived in
Brest-Litovsk, Russia his Surname would have been written in Cyrillic.
Then when he came to the United States his Surname would have been
transliterated into Latin.

How would the Surname BINEMBAUM have been written in Cyrillic?

Thanks again. Any help or suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

In addition to posting to this newsgroup, would you please cc: me with
your reply.

Jewish physicians in the Kaiser's army #general

Werner Cohn <wernerco@...>
 

I am trying to find out something about the typical military careers of
Jewish physicians in the Kaiser's army during WWI.

My father, Dr. James Cohn, was born in 1886 in Berlin and became a
physician in Berlin in 1910. He entered the Kaiser's army as a volunteer
in 1914, I believe, and served on the front as a medical officer until
the end of the war. I have a picture of him in military uniform dating
from this period:
http://www.wernercohn.com/family_pictures.html

I have recently tried to look at his military record, but >from what
various official and unofficial sources have told me, all such records
were destroyed in 1945 in an air raid.

So, not being able to find out about his military record directly, I would
be interested in what others may have learned about the military careers
of other Jewish medical officers in that period. Most particularly, I
would be interested in looking at whatever literature there may be on the
subject.

Many thanks for any help you could offer.

I know that my GGF and family left Kiev between 1910

from Havana to Key West, FL in 1926 aboard a ship called
the "Governor Cobb." Does anyone know if there is any

Searching for fate of family from Nizhniye Veretski, CZ #general

Felicia P. Zieff <tzippy_chs@...>
 

My grandmother, RECHTER, Debora was born in Nizhnye Veretzki,
Czechoslovakia in 1912. Her parents were RECHTER, Jozef and
FISCHER, Rosa. I have been looking for many years for any
information about what happened to her parents and siblings
who were in this town when the Nazis invaded. The Nazis
deported the residents of this town to a death camp in 1944,
but I don't know which one. Before the war, this town was part
of Czechoslovakia, during the war it became part of Hungary,
currently it is in the Ukraine.

What I am specifically looking for are Transport Lists or
other documents that have my great-grandparents and their adult
children's names on them. If these do not exist, then any
documents that state the deportation date and destination of the
residents of this town. I know this is not an easy request.
Any help this group can provide would be most appreciated.
Below is all the information I know about this town.

There no evidence of Jewish settlement in Scotland in that period.
