Jewish home #unitedkingdom

Jack <howdydo@...>
 

Am trying to find information on an Aunt & Uncle.

Fanny SCHILLER nee KOCH and her uusband Alexander SCHILLER were moved from
Vienna to England on 8-8-1938 as part of a group of blind jews.

They worked at an Ice Cream plant.

In 1974, they lived in 4 Worcester House, Halifield House, Paddington.

Alex died in 1975, and Fanny was moved to a Nursing Home in Roekford (I
believe that is the spelling) staffed by German Nurses. She died in 1977 and
I was unable to get any information >from the home. My letters were not
saved.

Does anyone know the name of the Jewish home?

Is anyone able to locate the day and month of their deaths? and burial
location?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

obtaining copies of records #lithuania

rayvenna@...
 

I found some records in the All Lithuania database that probably apply to my family. How do I go about getting photocopies of the actual records and English translations?

I'm specifically interested in the May 20 1858 Revision/Family/Census Lists Table and the 1877 Tax Voters Table.

Thanks,

We have a Herman Bercovitz in our tree. He lived came to the US

More accurately he may have come >from Bukovina

He married my great aunt Tina Brucker, also >from Romania.

I don't think that Kazimiera is a typical Jewish name. Probably the
grand- aunt of Yaccov's Polish pal was named in honor of one of the
century at least one of them, grand duke Jan Kazimierz, granted a
number
of privileges to the Jews of Minsk. Whether the great aunt was named
Jan Kazimierz was the king of Poland, not a grand duke.

Kazimiera is the Polish female form of Kazimierz (Casimir).

As for Kazimierz, the Jewish district still exists and is slowly being
restored, but already today being a center of commemorating and reviving
century-long Jewish tradition in Poland not only through the aspect of
the Shoah.

Dozens of cafes, Jewish restaurants, museums, synagogues, book shops,
and a lot of people who are sharing this culture - especially during the
yearly Festival of Jewish Culture, with numerous cultural and musical
events taking place e.g. courses of Jewish cooking, Hebrew and Yiddish
lessons, concerts of classic Jewish music. The final concert gathers
always thousands of people - >from Poland and abroad and is a great sign
of tolerance and recognition to the role of the Jewish people in Polish
history.

Best greetings,

Recte is 'right', and probably means 'correctly' here. Often people used
different names for various reasons, and this would be the governments
version of what his name was.

It is really >from Latin, not German or Polish by that spelling.

Dear All,

I'm afraid I must raise a point of difference with Shel's statement
that Bukovina was part of Galicia.

It is my understanding that Bukovina was never part of the Austrian
Galicia province, but rather had a quasi-limited autonomous status as
an "Austrian Crownland," which was different >from being a province.
Before WWI it was part of Austria, between the wars it was in
Romania, and now it has been divided, with Upper Bukovina in Ukraine
and what's left of Lower Buk in Romania.

Marc,

Bukovina has been administered as a district of the Province of Galicia
between 1786 to 1849 and it was granted the status of an separate crown
land and duchy in 1849.
