1894 EIDB info #general

Haviva Langenauer <havival@...>
 

Hi Genners,
In looking for a relative who came through Ellis Island, I found
entries for a Moses Rosenmann age 14, and a Moche Rosenmann age
11, travelling together on the same ship on the same date. The
handwritten manifest, of course, is terribly incomplete, so no info
is available there. The text manifest is completely missing >from
the internet site. Here's my question. Could these two boys be
one and the same because they have the same Hebrew name? The
alternate explanation is that they were cousins.

Has anyone found two entries, for the same relative, on the same
ship, with two different ages, and slightly different given names?
Any help is appreciated.

Shana Tova.

Gomel Chesed Shel Emes 1932: Weinstein and Son #general

JANICE GOLDMAN <jg2333@...>
 

Dear Fellow Genealogists:
I would like to know if archival info exists >from 1932 regarding
the charity burial society called Gomel Chesed Shel Emes in Chicago.
A Piser representative told that limited info is available for an
individual that I am researching, specifically, name and date of
passing. It is my hope that more detailed archived info has been
preserved, because perhaps the Rabbi who conducted the service was
able to obtain and record info supplied by the family.
Your feedback will be appreciated.
Thank you.

Matsiev Synagogue in Denver? #general

krippens@...
 

Hello everyone,

My mother and her brothers attended a little old synagogue in
Denver, Colorado >from about the early 1920's, called the "Matsiev"
Synagogue. My uncle looked for it several years ago but could not
find it. He describes it as the old kind of synagogue, where the
men would doven, but with none of the trappings of more modern
communities, such as choirs, etc. Does anyone have any information
on this synagogue, or, more specifically, any records it might hold?

Thank you very much,

WWII POW in Hammerstein: Stalag 2B #general

JANICE GOLDMAN <jg2333@...>
 

Dear Fellow Genealogists:

Do you know of anyone whose ancestor may have been a POW in Stalag
2B in Hammerstein, Germany in WWII? Texas Ranger in the 36th Infantry
Division?

I have heard that many of the people in this particular Stalag were
Serbians and Czechs, as well as several thousand American soldiers.

Also, I am seeking to make contact with WWII Jewish American POW's,
or their families, and hopefully, people that were captured during
the Battle of Cassino, Italy. Perhaps a family member will have info,
too.

I made contat with one such person, and have a list of names kept in
a War Log for an area of Stalag 2B for the 34th Division. If you are
intersted, please conatct me with a name you would like me to check
for you.

Thank you.

advice please #unitedkingdom

Diane Westerhuis <dwesterhuis@...>
 

I wonder if anyone can advise me how to find out more about my ancestors
Samuel Solomon, born about 1770, i dont know where, and Betsy Moses, i dont
know where or when. The information i have is that they married in London:

Samuel Solomon
(Hebrew: Shemayab, son of Moshe Fidshil Faya)
married
Betsy Moses
(Hebrew: Beyla, daughter of Shalom Milik Mal)
on the 30th October 1793, at the Great Synagogue, London
The officiant was Moses Myers, Rabbi of the New Synagogue
and acting Chief Rabbi at the time. The Witnesses were: ltzik, Reader and
Itzik. Second Reader (sic).

Samuel was trading in Spitalsfield, London, as a pencil maker, two of his
sons were sent to NSW in 1817, and he followed them out. This information
regarding the marriage came >from the Synagogue, via another family member. I
am a novice in this area, and am trying to find out about these ancestors.
If he was married in the New Synagogue at that time, would they be SEphardic
or Ashkenazi? I understand Jewish people in London at this time were often
from Holland, Spain or Portugal, where would this family have come >from and
how do i trace their birth?

any advice welcome

Pollak from Budapest and identification of memorial on Viewmate VM1773 #hungary

Eva Floersheim <evaflor@...>
 

My name is Eva Floersheim and I have just signed up for the Hungarian SIG to
help a friend in his search.
The friend was born in 1936 in Budapest as Gyorgy Pollak, the son of Moric
Mor Moshe Pollak ( born in 1893 or 1894 in Seregelyes, son of Kalman Pollak)
and Rachel Lea Rozalia nee Brand >from Tarnow in Poland.
His father disappeared >from their home in Garay utca 32 in Budapest during
the war, and the son never saw him again.

Gyorgy has now found out that his biological mother died a month after his
birth, and that the woman who saved him during the war, was his stepmother.
The stepmother died in 1946, and that same year Gyorgy was brought to
Israel - one of the Hungarian Holocaust orphans.

In Ujpest in 1946 lived his half brother Sandor Pollak who at the time was
married and had a little son. After a year or two in Israel Gyorgy lost
contact with his half brother. He still hopes to find him again, though
before the contact was broken , Sandor told Gyorgy he was about to change
his family name >from Pollak to something else....

Gyorgy has a few family photos - of his father, his brother , his stepmother
and himself.
I have posted a photo of the stepmother and Gyorgy in front of a memorial on
Viewmate. The photo was probably taken in the summer of 1939.
Please check http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html
The photo is posted as VM1773
Where is this memorial? In Budapest? Somewhere else?

Gyorgy has been several times to Budapest during the last ten years and has
located the graves of his biological mother and his stepmother.
He has not found his brother Sandor Pollak.
He has not found information about the fate of his father.

Any help will be appreciated.
Please write directly to me on evaflor@kinneret.co.il
