Emil HERTZKA #general

harald blatterer <harryblatt@...>
 

Fellow researchers,

I am currently undertaking research on Emil Hertzka (1869-1932) who >from
1909 until his death was general director of the prestigious Viennese
music publishing house 'Universal Edition'.

I'm particularly interested in establishing whether there is a familial
connection between Emil Hertzka, the Viennese economist and sociologist
Theodor Hertzka and the German scholar Gottfried Hertzka. However, any
information regarding the geneology of all of the above persons would be
greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Harry Blatterer

Brief Ukrainian Translation Needed... #general

Steve Slesinger <sslesinger@...>
 

I wrote theCentral State Historical Archives of Ukraine (City of Lviv)
asking about records concerning the birth of my great grandfather Samuel
Labunsky. I received a reply in Ukrainian and cannot read it. It is only 2
sentences so it probably simply states no information is available, but I
would appreciate a translation sent to my email address:

sslesinger@alum.mit.edu

Thank you. I have scanned the body of the letter and it can be viewed at:

Meretz, Yiddish name for Merkine, Lithuania #general

hennynow
 

Warmest thanks to Warren Blatt for responding so promptly to my query
regarding the shtetl of Meretz. For all you JewishGenners, the current
name is Merkine, in present-day Lithuania.

Warren also referred me to the following JewishGen site for the town,
which makes for fascinating reading and is illustrated by a number of
excellent photographs:

This calls for a donation to JewishGen, right now.

LIEBES of Breslau and LEBUS of London #general

Harold Lewin <harmir@...>
 

Researchers of either names Liebes or Lebus will be interested in a letter
written by Hans Liebes of Breslau in November 1938. It was apparently found
while clearing out an office in London a few years ago and constitutes a
desperate but guarded appeal for help in exiting Germany. The letter
provides a wealth of family information and includes proof of the
connection between the two names.

Those interested should contact: Harold Lewin - Jerusalem

Re: Passenger Listing #general

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

Dear Eleanor,

I hate to throw a damper on this connection, but naturalization
records are notorious for having incorrect information. I was doing
a search for someone for April 7, 1903 and three ships they said
their family came on at that time. I finally gave up looking for the
ships and went to the soundex indexes. I finally found the person
and lo and behold the April 7 was rightbut the year was l904.

There is no guarantee if any or part of the information you have
on the naturalization papers are incorrect.

Sorry,
Diane Jacobs
New York

Thanks to an entry on Ancestry.com and the gentle prodding of a friend
from this list, I recently found the microfilmed Declaration of Intention
and Petition for Naturalization for my relative Ike London. Ike was
probably my grandmother's brother and was appointed guardian for my
father when the latter's parents died. I have some questions about the
naturalization paperwork that perhaps members of this list can suggest
answers for:
My next question has to do with Ike's name. On the Declaration he stated
that he emigrated >from Rotterdam on the ship Holland. On the Petition he
said that he arrived in NY on November 18, 1895 >from Rotterdam, Holland
and the ship's name was Rotterdam. After reading this, I enthusiastically
turned to microfilmed passenger lists, thinking it would be easy to find
Ike on the list. He must have arrived on the Holland-America line's
Rotterdam on Nov. 18, 1895.....

The closest ship's name I found was the Holland America ship Amsterdam,
which arrived in NY on November 20, 1895. Since I felt this was probably
the one Ike was on, I read the passenger list three times, but there was
no Ike London on it. There was, however, a young man named Israel
Lazowsky. Israel was 19 years old, not 22 or 23 as Ike would have been
according to the birthdates on his naturalization information, but the
age discrepancy is not overwhelming. I would like to know if list members
feel that Israel Lazowsky could have become Ike London? Note that Ike's
relative Kalman London stated on a census that he was >from Poland, so a
Polish name ending would not be too surprising.
