Belarus Adoptions #belarus

ms nodrog
 

Dear Genners,
Even though this is not a direct genealogical question, I hope that it
will be listed. My husbands family came >from Belarus. My daughter is
considering adopting a baby >from Belarus even though she realizes that
most Jews >from our relatives lines were kiled in the Holacaust. Is
anyone familiar with adoptions in Belarus, or has anyone had experience
with Belarus adoptiions? Are there any Jewish adoption agencies in
Belarus? Please reply to me privately at msnodrog@yahoo.com.
Thanks in advance,
Hope Gordon

Writing to Israel in English - Bad? #belarus

Dear List:

This message is prompted by my singular lack of success in generating
replies >from two possible Israeli relatives to whom I wrote in August
and October. I even enclosed a SASE and international reply coupon
with the first person.

Did I do it right (English) and just hit some rare folks who couldn't
care less? Any advice?

Thanks.

Johann HEILBUT * 1855 and Lion HEILBUT * 1858 came also >from "Bavaria" = Bayern

I have no idea what happened to the above brothers, and I can rarely fit them

Hope that everybody had a nice thanksgiving.

For several years I have been searching unsuccessfully for
information on
the family of two brothers, Louis and Theodore WEILL, who immigrated
from
Germany to North Carolina (NC) in the 1800's. Theodore was my
great-grandfather. I now believe that my lack of success may derive
from
having based my research on erroneous family tradition <<SNIP>>
.... in the 1870 census, Louis is living in Wilmington, NC and
his place of birth is listed as Bavaria, not Frankfurt.

Barry -
Try the LDS records for Munich - I have a copy of the Munich (Munchen)
synagogue microfilms in my local Morman family history center and have
noticed many WEILLs in them. You want European microfilms 1272271-3
which are the Munich Synagogue records. We also have some WEILLs in my
ancestral town of Floss. I will check the book of Floss genealogies for
your ancestors when I return >from my Thanksgiving travels next week.

Weil in Bavaria or France? #germany

Arline and Sidney Sachs
 

It could be possible that both answers are correct depending on the exact
date. There was a lot of fighting between the French and Germans during
this time and areas moved back and forth several times. There are areas
along the Rhine river that became part of Germany for the final time in
1870. Mainz was under French rule for some years too. This is a little
north of Bavaria, but I would think the same would hold true.

INTRO - researching MINTUS family from Czarnikau or Warta #germany

Eric and Paula Benjaminson <oregon81@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for about
three years. Mostly I've been working on my Latvian branch, the
BENJAMINSON, so although I've a lot of experience in Jewish genealogy I'm
a novice in German Jewish Genealogy research. I consider myself an advanced
computer user, and my experience in using the Internet is extensive. I work
at the American Embassy in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso in West Africa. My
native language is English and I also know French, Swedish and a little
Latvian.

On the MINTUS side, I have identified the names and birth and death dates
back to my great-grandfather Albert MINTUS(the father of my father's
mother). What has been and continues to be frustrating is that I cannot pin
down where in the German/East Prussian/Polish border area he comes from; I
have contradictory, circumstantial evidence which implies he is either from
Czarnikau (northwest of Posen) or >from Warta (just east of Kalisz). I know
he was born in March 1867. All of his American documents that I have
collected (marriage certificate, death certificate, naturalization papers)
simply list "Germany" or "German Poland". I know that he immigrated to New
York in 1888, which is unfortunately before the Ellis Island indices, and
because I don't have a ship name or exact date of arrival I don't know how
to locate his arrival record in New York.

Thus, my primary research goal now is to find out which town Albert MINTUS came from.
Any help any of you could give that would help me to break
through this "brick wall" would be much appreciated!

GOLDSCHMID/GOLDSCHMIDT/GOLDSCHMIT/GOLDSCHMITT in Palatinate area #germany

reuven <mor@...>
 

Hello GerSIG-forum,

my ggggpratents Eduard Herz GOLDSCHMIDT (also GOLDSCHMID, GOLDSCHMIT or
GOLDSCHMITT), (born 1764 or 1768 in Altdorf/Baden, probably under the name
Herz CAHN or KAHN, died 14 Sep 1847 in Frankenthal) and Caroline HIRSCH or
BERLENBOURG (b. 1771 ? - d. 11 Mar 1856 Ft.) had in addition to my gggmother
Henriette GOLDSCHMIDT (b. 24 Sep 1815 Ft.; d. 20 Nov 1869 Ft.) many more
children and so far, except for Josef, I could not find any testimony of
their later life. All of them were born in Frankenthal/Palatinate and were
alive in July 1808, when names had to be adopted under the napoleonic law.
At least a few of them should have grown up, got married and settled in the
area:

Henrie Hirsch (b. 28 Jun 1791);
Edouard Moshe (b. 15 Aug 1792; d. 2 May 1812);
Sara (b. 9 Feb 1794);
Regina Bela (b. 11 Sep 1797);
Josef (b. Dec 1799; d. 19 Apr 1855) silversmith in Ft. His son Daniel, a
silversmith too, moved to Mannheim;
Jeannette (b. 1800);
David (b. 1802);
Theresie (b. 1803);
Ester (b. 1806);
... maybe more unknown children, and finally my gggmother:
Henriette (b. 24 Sep 1815; d. 20 Nov 1869), married to Abraham WEIL (b.11
Jun 1812 Ellerstadt; d. 15 Oct 1890 Ft.)

Has any of the mentioned persons turned up in other trees?

At this occasion I want to inform that the Frankenthal/Palatinate activists
for the remembrance of the local Jewish community have gone online with
their new website: http://juden-in-frankenthal.de . It is completely in
German and under construction, but interesting to those with Frankenthal
links.
