finding a phone number with just an address and no last name #general

Denise <val5001@...>
 

Genners,

Once again, I am coming to you for help. I need to find my step
grandmother. Her name is Anita Feldman (I dont remember her maiden name).
She lives in Augsburg, (West) Germany. I have an old letter >from her with
the address, but I need to find her phone number. I know she lives with
her sister, and that the phone is listed in the sister's name (Edith).
Again, I dont know Edith's last name. I thought I could do a "reverse
lookup" with just an address, but everything I try tells me I *must* have
a last name. Any suggestions??? It's very important that I contact her
by phone, not by mail. Please respond privately.

Thanks in advance,

Denise Feldman

several borders. Each time at the crossing, there was border control.
In ports of departure, the emigrants were somehow housed, waited for
days and weeks, underwent medical check up, etc. Were there any
registers kept, or any government records made of the movement of these
people? I can imagine that no records were made in Russia, but what
about Germany, England, Holland and other European countries

I have looked at the English transit process a bit. There are no records
of arrivals >from continental Europe. Apparently the British were not
particularly concerned with that activity as they "knew" those people were
not going to stay. There may be some immigrant aide records, but my
impression these are mostly related to people intending to stay in the UK,
and were created by non-governmental organizations.

Once the transients landed on the east coast of England, their movement to
Liverpool and their lodging there was done through private organizations
and I have heard of no systematic records. I understand a system of
inspections of boarding houses in Liverpool eventually developed, but the
description of that at the Merceyside Maritime Museum did not suggest
there was any process for registering in individual immigrants.

I believe Hamburg and Bremen did have police registry of transients. But
others will have to provide the details, if they are known.

Re: Happy Passover Part II #belarus

Hi Stan,
Just my thought that Courland SIG must have a master list so that they can do a
"mass mailing"
which is certainly easier than picking out you, me and other contributors.

Joan in Calif.

*** Joan's reasoning is quite correct, but the mailing in question in this
case was >from Jewishgen, not >from Courland SIG, and went to all SIGs. The donations of
past contributors are of course greatly appreciated, but the fraction of
Jewishgen users who contribute is still very small. Jewishgen functions
through the generous gifts of time of many volunteers, but of course the
operating expenses in purely financial terms are also substantial, hence
the request. - Moderator

Re: Lisa THALER (Chicago) grsLT@aol.com query concerning Jonas STRANSKY.
A Rabbi Hugo STRANSKY was appointed the Chief Rabbi of the Melbourne
Hebrew Congregation (Victoria, Australia) in 1948. He left Melbourne in
1951 and took up a position as senior minister in Wellington, New
Zealand. He later went to Washington Heights, New York.
I believe that his son Michael is living in Melbourne. I recall that
Rabbi STRANSKY was born in Checkoslovakia.

A Happy and Healthy Pesach to everyone >from me, Bonnie and Saul--

My goal would be a 100% finding rate for the requests I have received thus
far, but realistically it will be lower.

It is imperative that you make every attempt to give as close to an full
Lower East Side address. Although East 4th St. is great, having 313-315
East 4th St. (the address my maternal grandparents were married at) is
much better.

In 2001, there are 16 elementary schools in District One. In 1921 (50
years before NYC Public Schools were divided into districts), there were
about 30 elementary schools. My school has the records >from approximately
8 of them. I will continue to strive to increase my success rate for you.
Hopefully I can get my principal to allow me to realphabetize the *many*
cards in disarray, but, needless to say, the kids have to come first (but
I,m stuck--so does genealogy). (bwg)

Columbus, Queen Isabella, etc. #general

Gene Starn <genes17@...>
 

I've done some extensive study of Columbus and his Jewish
background. A Venezuelan priest, wanting to know why Columbus
was never made a saint, discovered in the Vatican archives that he
was born of in the Jewish section of Genoa, on the island of
Majorca. He took up the name of Christopher Columbus of Genoa,
Italy, after he had met him, and to escape the clutches of Phillipe
of France who wanted his head for betraying him. I have a copy of
the tract written by the Venezuelan priest, and also a copy of a
letter written by one of Queen Isabella's inner court stating that
the man known as 'Columbus' was not who everyone thought, but
was of a different religious pursuit than the Catholic king and
queen. There are many other "clues" to Columbus's identity as a
Jew, but these have all been presumptions and have never been
authenticated, including the tract and letter I mentioned. There have
been a number of books written about his Jewishness (we call it
Yiddishkeit today), but nothing has been absolutely proven including
a book written by Weisenthal.

Besides ... what would happen to Columbus Day, the Knights of
Columbus, etc., etc.

Does anyone out there remember this family:Jay(Jayne), I don't know her
married name at the time, she had two daughters, Rona and Doris. Doris
married a Joseph Sellinger probably in the late 50's, early 60's. I would
be interested in getting info on them, especially the last names they were
using. They may or may not be a branch of my tree. Jay's last name may
have been Parnes or Parness at one time during a marriage. She had
another sister, Dorothy whose married names were Klarich and Jablonowitz.

change of name in computer tree #general

Daniel S. Katz <dsk@...>
 

Hi,

When using a computer program to keep track of family trees,
how do you record an individual who has changed his name,
possibly multiple times?

One of my great-grandfathers was born with one name in Europe,
took a second name when he came to the US, and later changed
his name to something more related to his European name.

Thanks,

Norway/Trondheim/Holocaust Memorial #general

Leslie Malkin <lesmalk@...>
 

The current issue of Hadassah Magazine, (April; 2001) contains an
article about Trondheim, Norway. On p. 54 is a picture of the Holocaust
Memorial inscribed with the names of those Jews killed in Auschwitz. I
am pretty sure some of my Norwegian cousins are listed. Can anyone refer
me to an address or email (in Trondheim or elsewhere) where a list of
these names can be found. Thank you.
