Look for information about Erna MAAS #general

Susan Melnick
 

In arranging the papers of my paternal family, the Maas family from
Muhlhausen Germany, I have come across an undated clipping related to
my paternal aunt, Erna MAAS. The clipping is probably >from the
Aufbau, the German Jewish newspaper.

The text states (in German) that Martha MARX, 315 Crestview Place,
Teaneck, NJ, is looking for Erna MAAS, who was the district director
of the Hesse-Nassau, Frankfurt am Main branch, of the Reichvereigung
der Juden in Deutschland.

We have some documentation concerning Erna's involvement in
Kindertransports. However, I was also told that she brought some
children with her when she left Germany and turned them over to an
agency when she reached NY. I am trying to verify that story as well.
We know she sailed on the SS Nyassa of the Hamburg-American Line out
of Lisbon on June 3, 1941 (originally scheduled for May 20 but delayed
because of engine problems.) The ship landed in NY on June 14.

I am interested generally in any information about Erna and
specifically how Martha MARX might have known my aunt. Please reply
personally. I appreciate your help.

(UK) Sephardic Community Launches Genealogy Service Assisting Descendants of Inquisition to Get Spanish and Portuguese Passports #sephardic

Jan Meisels Allen
 

With the UK leaving the European Union, "Brexit", The Spanish and Portuguese
Community (S&P) launched an internet-based ancestry tracking service to help
those to get EU-qualifying passports. As previously reported, both Spain
and Portugal have enacted laws requiring applicants to prove their descent
from an Iberian Sephardic ancestor. Once the applicant has supplied the
required evidence under the Spanish or Portuguese laws, the S&P will issue
a letter to the appropriate authorities: the Lisbon or Porto communities to
the Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain. The S&P will also assist
those congregants who qualify under the laws of several of the "daughter
congregations" of the London Bevis Marks Synagogue, in Barbados and Jamaica.
To read more see:
http://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/sephardi-community-launches-genealogy-service/

The S&P was originally founded in 1657, as The Spanish and Portuguese Jews'
Congregation of London. The Bevis marks Synagogue opened in 1701 and is
still in regular use was not the first Sephardic synagogue in London, but
replaced the original synagogue. To read more about the S&P see:

Jaslo, Krosno Poland and the ZILBER Family #general

leah teicher <anafa-e@...>
 

Dear Genners,

We are looking for the family or descendants of Ze'ev/Wolf ZILBER (born
around 1905?- 1942) who was born in Krosno, Poland.
He was married to Esther (nee FREUND) ZILBER >from Jaslo, Poland.
The family lived in Krosno or Jaslo. They had 2 children: Moshe (1935-1942)
and Sarah (1937-1942) ZiILBER.
We know that the whole family perished probably in Belzec.


WOLF's father was Chaim ZILBER >from Jaslo, Poland, and mother Chaya (nee
ROSENFELD) >from Debica, Poland .
Both lived in Jaslo. The last information we have, is that Chaim and Chaya
with their daughter Rachel, her husband and 4 children escaped east to
Russia.
They survived and came to live after the war in Kibbutz Merchavia, in
Israel, following their eldest daughter, who already had lived in the
kibbutz since 1929.

Thank you.

Jewish Hospital in Uman #ukraine

jskarf@...
 

I am wondering if anyone has information about a Jewish hospital that
existed in Uman in the early 1900s.
My great-grandmother appeared in the 1897 in this hospital. Other than
this reference, I have turned up only a couple of references to various
Jews being brought to the Jewish hospital in Uman during the 1919 pogroms.
Does anyone have more information about this institution?

Thanks,

Josh

Hi,

I wrote some years ago about a connection between my family
REICH/RAYKHZELIGMAN and LEVITAN.

Geives Rubin LEVITAN b. c. 1858 married a 2nd cousin twice
removed Sora (Sonia?) REICHZELIGMAN b. 1872, both >from Lithuania.

I think their descendants emigrated to the US.

To the best of my knowledge they had 4 children:
Yosef b. 1895
Zalman 1897
Nakhman 1904
and a daughter

Does anyone have any information or connection to this family?

Thanks in advance.
