Searching: BROMBERG family - Bronx, NY #general

Michael Trapunsky <trapunsky@...>
 

Hi all,

I'm looking for any information on the BROMBERG family - originally from
Warsaw and Wyskzow, Poland.

While going through the new JewishGen and EIDB One-Step Search web page
(thanks very much to Dr. Morse, Michael Tobias, and Erik S. Steinmetz for
this great tool) I recently found out that the sister of my wife's great
grandfather - Leah BROMBERG (nee ZAWISHYNSKI) - came to New York in 1920
with her children: Moshe, Sarah, and Menashe. Leah joined her husband -
Itzik - who came to New York in 1912. In the 1920's the family was living
on Brook or Brooklyn Avenue in the Bronx, NY.

I was told that the names of all of Leah and Itzik's children were: Morris,
Sarah, Max, Yossi, and Hymie.

I was under the impression that this family perished in Warsaw during the
Holocaust so finding them listed in the EIDB was quite a surprise for me.

If anyone has any information on this BROMBERG family I would really love
to hear back >from you.

Thanks very much,

Michael Trapunsky

GOLDENBERG #general

Stephanie Weiner <laguna@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I have a most unusual situation regarding my GOLDENBERG family. I have
been in contact with a woman in Romania, via a translator, who appears
to be related to my GOLDENBERGs. In our first exchange, she indicated
that she was familiar with my grandfather's sister, Berta EISENSTEIN,
and had even seen a photo of Berta's 2 older sons in her
mother'-in-law's house. She signed off on this first letter, wishing me
the blessings of Mary Immaculata and Jesus Christ. I assumed she had
married into the family and that this was an intermarriage.

The second letter exchanged further info, and in the third letter, she
sent me copies of documents and a hand-written family tree -- in which
she linked her husband's great-grandfather and my great-grandfather as
brothers. Additionally, one of the documents she sent was of her
husband's great grandfather (born 1811) that indicated his religion as
Roman Catholic. The documents originated in Solca, Bukovina -- not far
from Radauti and Cernauti, where she stated that other family members
had lived.

This is a conundrum. How can one brother be raised Orthodox Jew (as well
as being a Kohane) and the other Roman Catholic? Further, just the other
day, Victoria Barkoff posted to the JewishGen list regarding Dr.
Beider's presentation in Toronto, in which it was stated that one of
the major guidelines in assigning surnames to Jews was that those names
differ >from those of the local Jewish population.

I'm getting a headache >from trying to figure this out!

BOOK CITE: Gentile Helpers in Nazi Times in Germany #germany

Christof Eberstadt <CPA-Eberstadt@...>
 

Dear Gersiggers,
Here is another book (written in German) about people who helped to save
Jews during Nazi times:

Cornelia Schmalz-Jacobsen: Zwei Baeume in Jerusalem (Two Trees in
Jerusalem); Hoffmann und Campe, Heidelberg 2002.

The book tells the story of her parents, Donata and Eberhard Helmrich.
Donata, mother of 4 children in Berlin, and Eberhard, Hauptmann of the
German Reichswehr in Drohobycz (Ukraine) as leader of a farm, helped an
unknown number of Jews to escape death. Some sources tell of 80, other
sources speak of 300 survivors.

The parents involved their children in their efforts which meant an
especially high risk to all of them as the youngest (the author) was at
that times 6 years old. They forbade their children to take part in any
Nazi organization or event, which was truly a "masterpiece".

The author comes to the conclusion that it was indeed possible to act
human, and that all those who said, and say, "It was not possible to do
anything" are definitely wrong and tell the untruth.

But it needed an unbelievable upright standing, of course. Today
two trees are planted in Jerusalem to eternally commemorate them both.

BOOK CITE: Memoirs of Jewish Families in Nazi Times #germany

Christof Eberstadt <CPA-Eberstadt@...>
 

Dear Gersiggers,
For those who are generally interested in the history of German families
in the early 20th century and especially during Nazi times here is another
book:

Walter A. Eberstadt: When We Came, Where We Went, W.A.E. Books,
100 Newfield Avenue, Edison New Jersey 08837, Fax:(732) 225-1562

The 496 page book deals with the history of the family Eberstadt from
Worms and the later Frankfurt branch, and contains the memoirs of an
international banker who emigrated in 1936 >from Hamburg to England,
and is now living in New York.

It may interest especially people who want to learn about banking policy
in Germany before WW II and international banking after it. It may also
interest people having to emigrate to England, also those who served
during the War as ex-Germans and soldiers against Nazi Germany.

It is also (and especially) a commemoration of the Frankfurt Flersheim
and a part of the Wertheim family (his mother's family) who perished
in the Holocaust, and it contains letters written during their travels
to Belgium, France and Holland before they were all deported.

The book is a nonprofit undertaking. The proceeds go to New School
University in Grennwich Village; Northside Center for Child Development
in Harlem; the Martha's Vineyard Preservation Trust; the American Council
on Germany.

19th Century Naturalization Records #general

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

I have questions concerning naturalization papers in the 1890 period.

Could anyone tell me if there was any time lapse between Final Papers and
the issuance of a Certificate of Citizenship? In other words, if the
Certificate is dated October 1892, would the Final Papers also be October
1892?

I understand that First Papers could be filed in a different court than that
to which Final Papers were filed. However, would the court issuing the
Certificate of Citizenship also be the one to which Final Papers were filed?

Thanks for any help you are able to offer.

Help with locations in East Prussia/Lithuania #general

M. Faber <mfaber@...>
 

I just got off the phone with a relative that gave me some interesting
information but nothing I can pinpoint. I'm hoping that you all can help.

My GG Aunt was supposed to be >from Hedecruk near Leipzig in East Prussia.
She met her husband, who's family were shingledeckers, when he was looking
at trees. His family was >from Tavriz in/near Kovno, Lithuania. My GG Aunt
always claimed her mother was German.

I've been unable to determine what communities they are referring to using
Shtetl Seeker. Does anyone recognize these shtetls? Also, when my GG Aunt
and her father arrived in 1904 (at Ellis Island), they listed Akrnauschken,
Germany as their last place of residence. Does anyone recognize this
location?

Thanks for any and all help in advance,
