Kaiserwald, Music #courland #latvia

Two questions:

1. Does anyone know if the Kaiserwald records are available anywhere
outside of the Red Cross? Any chance they're being indexed?

2. As a violinist, I am very interested in whether any music has
survived >from the Jewish community of Latvia. If anyone knows of any -
recorded, published, or otherwise - I would love to hear of it.

Thank you.

Re: travel to Romania and Moldova #romania

Elvire <virel@...>
 

Hello,
I was two years ago in Rumania only with my husband (who speaks Rumanian)
but was not there over 40 years.
We got in Paris, at the Rumanian tourist office a guide called "GUIDE HOTEL
IER" which contained all the hotels in Rumania with full address and phone numbers. We could not get similar information in Rumania.

In the hotels, they all spoke English on the phone and gave me the price of
the rooms. Just for your knowledge, we paid the room about 50 dollars, with bath, and it was one of the best hotels in Iasi, in center of the town and walking distance >from the train station. Taxis are very cheap also.
All the best, shabbat Shalom.

Jewish refugees, 1940's, serving in British Military, immigrating to USA #general

KLOOGWEIN@...
 

I have 2 questions concerning Jewish refugees >from Germany or Austria who
fled to England, served in the British military during and immediately
after W.W.II, and then immigrated to the USA.

Because many of these people were stateless, they were issued some sort of
official document (not a passport) by British authorities as validation of
their identity in the immigration process. Does anyone have knowledge of
such documents or know how to find information about them?

I understand that British authorities paid the ship passage of those
Jewish refugees who had served in the British military and then immigrated
to the USA. Does anyone know if this is documented or if lists of such
passengers exist? The time frame is 1947-1948.

Thanks.

Re: Herschdorfer f. Schulberg #poland

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

It is most likely an "f" that means false in this context. So the
surname is Herschdorfer false Schulberg.

I can speak to the meaning in Galician records during the
Austrian period, which were written either in Polish or German.
Most Jewish marriages were not registered with the civil
authorities for a number of reasons. With no civil marriage
record, the authorities considered the issue of this couple to be
illegitimate and legally the issue would carry the surname of the
mother.

In some cases, the illegitimate person would use the father's
surname, when legally they should have used the mother's surname.
So, one explanation of Herschdorfer false Schulberg is that the
official (mother's) surname was Herschdorfer, but was wrongly
using Schulberg, the father's surname. Hopefully your friend can
find other records that will prove or discount this assumption.

A friend was looking at his paternal grandfather's Polish
passport or visa
or whatever over the weekend, and in many places for his name
it listed
"HERSCHDORFER" either with SCHULBERG or in some places just by
itself. It said things like "Feivel Herschdorfer f. Schulberg"
(I think it was an
"f" but who knows.) Any idea what that means? He copied down
the word on the line with it ("Nazwisko" or something like that)
and looked it up in a
little Polish dictionary, but it just means "name".

Do you know whether the mother's maiden name was used that way?
No one else in that family got out of Europe, so his father
doesn't even know whether that was perhaps his grandmother's
maiden name.

Thank you for any help.
