Hi,
I had similar trouble finding an ancestor on a manifest. Someone on the list helped me find that he had taken a different route than other family members. Instead of going directly from Hamburg to New York, he went to England and then to Canada and then traveled on ground to New York. It hadn't occurred to me to check Canadian ports.

best,

Dear Mr. Heilbrunn, I will definitely check those books out, and I thank you for walking those streets and landmarks in memory. So many of our family from Lodz died their brutally.  I am hoping to some day visit in their memory, too.  Sending my best and gratitude for your kind response, Sharon

Re: Wolk family #lithuania

David Wolk
 

Many thanks for your response.  As mentioned in my search entry my grandfather's brother, Rabbi Louis Wolk, emigrated to South Africa during the first decade of the twentieth century and he lived and worked in a number of communities including a short stint in what was then the Belgium Congo.  I am aware that he and his wife had three children, a son Charles who died in his early thirties, and two daughters who eventually lived in Johannesburg.  If there was a 'David', I am unaware of it but it's possible.  Some years ago a friend mentioned a David Wolk who was a dentist in South Africa but I was unable to trace that information.  I do know that Louis's son also had a son, Jonathan, who eventually became a medical doctor but he is untraceable; he may not be alive.  Unfortunately I could not find Vivienne Wolk on the Geni site (likely the result of technology ignorance on my part) and the uct site did not list any Wolks.

I'd welcome any additional information or thoughts you may have on the Wolk family.

Ancestris is free, Java-based so it works on PCs but also Macs and Linux systems, and generates pure Gedcom so you remain in control of your data: http://ancestris.org

It's also very powerful and extensible.

The groom was born in Pforzheim on 24 Aug. 1885, and the bride on 21 Feb 1892 in Prague.  The wedding was on 17 Sep 1914, so the groom was 29 and the bride 22 years old.

Re: How did my great grandmother travel to Ireland from Kyiv? #ukraine #general

Boats to Dublin would likely have come from Liverpool so making an East -West journey across England likely for migrants. One of the earlier comments mentioned journeys to Hull by boat. I think this is the most likelt jouney my ancestors have taken but I just don't know.

Glasgow - Londonderry - Philadelphia and New York were popular migration journeys.

Well, it looks more as though Leon became Arieh, rather than the other way around, seeing as he was buried in Israel. :) Yes, Leon and Arieh both mean lion. As does Leib in Yiddish. A lion was the symbol of the tribe of Judah (Yehuda in Hebrew) so the names Arieh or Leib and Yehuda are often seen together.
All the best,

Manny 'Emanuel' Isenberg - Toledo? #general

michelle.cosier@...
 

Dear All,

I'm doing research on Manny Isenberg. I've got a DNA match with a cousin from my mom (Ruth Skop) and that has led me to him.  

I have a hinch that he might be my mom's father.  Anyone know more information about him? My grandma lived in Toledo at the time when she came home pregnant with my mom. There were plans to get married he was in the home remodelling business, but in the adoption paperwork it says he didn't want to accept his parental duties.

Father David Isenberg, Mother Bertha, Brother Solomon, Sister Augusta, Hilda....

Would be interesting to chat more about the situation if anyone can help.  A few others are helping me but I don't know how to proceed with gathering more information or perhaps even starting to contact a few more cousins without invading their privacy... 

Thanks a lot!
Best,
Michelle Cosier 


Re: Life in Lodz #lodz

Peter Heilbrunn
 

Hi,

I had relatives on both sides of my family who where sent to Lodz in 1941 and didn't survive. I have visited the city and walked the streets of the Ghetto which remain remarkably unaltered. The railway station with its tunnel memorial is particularly moving. A Jewish cemetery is also nearby.
For the specific Ghetto period 1941 to 1944 I can recommend the following English language books;

Lodz Ghetto - Inside a community under siege by Alan Adelson & Robert Lapides ISBN 014013228-7

The Chronicle of the Lodz Ghetto 1941-1944 Lucjan Dobroszycki ISBN 030003208-0. This is a day by day chronicle

Ghettostadt: Lodz and the making of a Nazi city. Gordon Horwitz ISBN 978067404554-5

I tried this website, and to my great delight I was able to search in English and found a photo of the gravestone of a relative: Devorah Shervitz.
I also found a search result for her husband Leon Shervitz, but clicking on the link to the photo revealed a gravestone for somone named Yehuda Arieh. 
Could this be the same person? Arieh becomes Leo/Leon?

Recording of Leo Baeck Institute Webinar -- a story of Loss and Legacy #germany #holocaust #israel

Sam G.
 

On December 10 the Leo Baeck Institute (LBI) hosted an interview with me about my father John Gronner  ז"ל, born in 1920 in the small German town of Ilmenau. Experiencing anti-Semitism as a school boy, he is sent to pre-state Eretz Israel at age 16 to study engineering at the Technion, later serving in the British Army during the Second World War. (After the war, he learns that his parents, who had run had operated the local affiliate of a successful family enterprise, had been deported and killed.) Having married another German immigrant, he works in a clandestine munitions factory to help in Israel's War of Independence. After twenty years he emigrates with his wife and two young children, initially back to Germany, but later to the United States. Not until the demise of the Soviet Empire is he successful in reclaiming the family's property and restoring the family's reputation that the Nazi regime had sought to obliterate.
The recorded interview, conducted by Joseph Berger, veteran journalist and author, is available on YouTube
