Hello Barry:
I was interested in yoour email message because you mention
Blumenthal in Latvia. My grandmother was a Blumenthal >from
Latvia, Courland with two siblings who left there and went
to Burlington, Vermont, and one brother who remained and had
children and grandchildren, most of whom were killed in WWII.
I have some old Yiddish letters that state that some children,
grandchildren did survive and I hope to follow up to see where
they and their children could be now. But when I looked up
your family tree I did not see any Blumenthals there.

What do you know about your Blumenthals and where were they >from
and where did they settle?
Thanks. Info appreciated

Also about Latvian archives. Did you go there to research, do
it by mail, with a consultant, or what?

Dear Jewish Gen, Latvia

I need some help finding more information about my
Grandfather Cantor Arthur Aaron Jacobson and my
Grandmother Anna Liebesman Jacobson--both were killed
by Einstatzgruppen after the Riga Ghetto was
liquidated and my Father was sent to concentration
Camps. I do have documentation of which camps my
Father was sent to.

I really would love to find out which Synagogue my
Grandfather used to sing in--so I could visit it in
Riga and perhaps find some long lost relatives. I also
need help with finding my Uncle who still lives in
Riga.

I hope someone out there can help me.


Can you help me with the databases? I do not
understand how to use this database?

Stawiski Lanowner Magnate #poland

Jan Meisels Allen <janmallen@...>
 

In reading the current issue of Landsman it states the town of Stawiski in
Lomza Gubernia was a "private" town i.e owned by the nobility. Does anyone
know the name of the nobility who owned Stawiski? After hearing Gayle
Schissel Riley's most informative lecture on Magnate Landowners at the
Toronto Conference I am hoping to find the Magnate Landowner archives for
Stawiski. Has anyone else had any success in this endeavor?

SARAH NISGORETSKY #unitedkingdom

Sherwood Franklin <shepsel@...>
 

Hello again!

I am taking the liberty of resubmitting my original email sent Wednesday,
August 7th. In that email I requested information concerning the late Sarah
NISGORETSKY. The following paragraph is >from that email.

Before changing his name to FRANKLIN, my father's name was Samuel
NISGORETSKY. While searching the records of the Adat Yisroel Burial Society,
as posted on the website of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great
Britain, I came across the name Sarah NISGORETSKY. The burial society
records indicate that Sarah NISGORETSKY is interred on the Cheshunt Cemetery
and that she passed away 14 July 1967. The location of the grave is given as
D:5:22. I am anxious to ascertain if the burial society has any additional
infomation concerning Sarah NISGORETSKY as I believe she was a relative. If
there ase any descendents, I am most anxious to contact them.If there are no
descendents, I would like to obtain as much information about her as
possible to add to the history of the NISGORETSKY family. It is a large
family in the United States. Without knowing if it is feasible, I wonder if
it is possible to obtain a photograph of the grave marker. I will be
responsible for all associated costs.

Please be advised that due to physical disabilities, I am limited in the
things I can do on my own. Your cooperation will therefore be appreciated.

FRAM and BASOFKY, London, England to Canada #general

jeremy frankel
 

Dear Genners,

A collateral branch of my LEVY family was the FRAM family. In
reviewing the English National Marriage Index, I discovered a Jack
FRAM who married a Mary BASOFSKY. It took place in Mile End, London
and was registered in the third quarter of 1919. According to my FRAM
relative Jack FRAM was her paternal grandfather's brother, so there
is a connection. The couple later emigrated to Canada.

Is there anyone who recognizes these names? The English FRAMs lost
contact so I have nothing further to add.

Many thanks,

STANGER, Galicia to California 1880s #general

Miriam Suss
 

My mother's mother was Mania (Miriam) Fenster, born in Sniatzin, Galicia
in 1990. Manya's uncle Mark Stanger was born in the 1880's and left for
the United States around the time of World War 1. We think he settled in
California - I have found a Mark Stanger of St Joaquin, California in
the US Social Security Death records. He died in the 1960's. Any leads?

British Naturalization papers for Abraham COHEN #general

Merv & Naomi Barnett
 

Sometime ago I received naturalization papers for an Abraham COHEN, born
in 1863 in Kimshin, Russia, in 1863. He was naturalized in Manchester in
1887. He is not "my" Abraham COHEN who was born around 1855.

If this person is part of your family I would be happy to post them to
you, in preference to destroying them.

Romanian Shul - St. Louis City, Missouri #general

jeremy frankel
 

Dear Patricia,

According to the 1907-08 American Jewish Year Book, there was a
Romanian shul in St. Louis. It was called the "Ahawath Achim Anschai
Romania. It was organized on 24 July, 1902. The President (in 1907)
was Sam MAYER, 1207 N. 9th Street; the Treasurer was Moische MARCUS,
1821 Biddle Street, the Secretary was Abraham ABRAHAMS, 1020 N. 13th
Street. The annual income was $500. Five cemeteries are listed but
the above congregation is not listed as one of the 13 congregations
using them.

Sorry I can't be more helpful

Does anyone have information of the perhaps whereabouts of a Romanian shul
that might have existed in St. Louis City, St. Louis in the early 1900's?
Are there records of a Romanian congregation in the area - then and now?
Was there a specific cemetery that might have had a Romanian section?
Any information gratefully appreciated.

Searching: Labour camp "Wendefurt" in Germany/Austria #general

Robert Fraser <rgfraser@...>
 

I posed this this question some time ago, with no luck, but maybe some
more information will come to light.

My late grandfather was, so I have been told, sent >from Vienna in 1939 to
a labour camp called "Wendefurt" (this spelling may be incorrect). I
always assumed it to be in Germany, but my uncle, his son, now says that
it was near Vienna and that his father returned home each day or maybe each
week. Understandably, he didn't want to talk much about it, so I'm left
with guesses.

I have a photograph of my grandfather and others taken at the camp - so it
is unlikely to have been a big nazi secret. I don't know how long he
stayed there.

So where was it? I can find no mention in the Forgotten camps website
http://www.jewishgen.org/ForgottenCamps/

Has anyone out there heard of it or can they throw any light on this
mystery?

Shalom
