viewmate #germany

Lin <lin2@...>
 

Dear GerSIG Friends,
I've posted two documents that are in German on viewmate. I am
not certain they are for my family or not. One is, hopefully, the
marriage certificate of great grandfather's brother, Leopold
HERZ. His parents were Salomon HERZ and Sibilla/Sybilla SELIGMANN HERZ.

The other is hopefully a birth certificate for someone in a branch of my
family I found not too long ago. or maybe something else. It has a right
and left side, I'm not sure if both are the same document. I can
read the name Bernhard HERZ. If it's my family it should be for
Regina HERZ GUMPERTZ and her husband Simon GUMPERTZ. Regina was born in
Nuembrecht in the early 1800s. Simon was born in the late 1700s. I found
evidence of her existence online. She is the sister of my great-great
grandfather. I'm hoping this is their son. I'm hoping
this Bernhart GUMPERTZ is their son. I can only make out the name
GUMPERTZ and Bernhard.

Sincerely, Lin Herz, Palm Bay, FL Thank you so much,

1859 Cadastral Map of Kolomyja in the Gesher Galicia Map Room #ukraine

The city of Kolomyja (Kolomyia, Kolomea) is featured in an 1859
cadastral map newly posted on the Gesher Galicia Map Room:
https://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/kolomyja-kolomyia-kolomea-1859/

Although significantly discolored and blurred by water and mold
damage, this historical map has survived intact and its sheets retain
their clarity for property boundaries as well as building and parcel
numbers. The map shows the dense and well-developed city center with
many masonry buildings, several churches and monasteries, two
Christian cemeteries, two Jewish cemeteries, and a complex set of
waterways derived >from the River Prut.

Kishinev, April 2017 #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

I contacted today two people who are photographing the Jewish cemeteries in
Bessarabia/Moldova, and one said that he cannot go on a trip we planned for
a while, because it is snowing...
It a middle of April that is really strange. I also talked with a person in
Kishinev, he said that he also cannot do anything for a while because of
snow, and he sent me 3 photos >from today's Kishinev:
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B_DdstliIyD4SWpHcGx2TXF4M1U

I do remember snow in Kishinev, but not in April. Usually starting in
earlier March the cherries, apricot, grapes are blooming and in April it was
pretty warm. That snow should really effect the harvest of this year.

Intro - researching KIRCHER family from Burnhaupt, Haut-Rhin, France (Germany at the time). #germany

wyosundancer . <wyomingsundancer@...>
 

Hello GenSig
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for
3 years. I consider myself to be beginner in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research. I live in Kansas City, Missouri. My native language
is English. I consider myself Intermediate in using a computer.
My experience in using the Internet is intermediate.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of my
grandparents - Homer MCNAIR was born on April 1, 1898, in Dallas, Iowa
USA, and Jerena Elizabeth KIRSCHER was born on December 28, 1896
(unknown location). My great grandparents - Frank S KIRSCHER, January
14, 1850, in Erie, Pennsylvania, USA, and Barbara SPATZ September 10,
1857, in Aurora, Illinois of my great great grandparents - Peter
KIRSCHER was born on November 1, 1814, in Burnhaupt, Haut-Rhin, France
and Carolina HERRMANN was born on January 24, 1821, in
Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany and of my great great great grandparents
Theobold KIRSCHER was born in 1779 possibly Alsace Germany and Lititia
(unknown last name) was born in 1793 at an unknown location.

Theobold and Peter KIRSCHER came to the USA via New York approximately 1827.

My primary research goals now are to find out: if they were Jewish. I
had heard hints that my mother's family were originally Jewish. My
great great grandfather Peter was reported to be Jewish.

I took the National Geographic Geno 2.0 Next Generation test. It
shows on the maternal side a K haplogroup. I have 3 of the 4 markers
associated with Ashkenazi Jews. My reference population shows 3%
Jewish >from the area of Germany and France.

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 748759.

The family names and ancestral towns that I have entered in the
JewishGen Family Finder) are: BURNHAUPT >from Germany.

Need help finding possible GOLDSTEIN cousin in London...please #general

Rosalind
 

Dear Genners,

I am hoping someone in London knows Mrs Angela GOLDSTEIN. I would like to
make contact with her because I believe we are something like 3d(or 5th)
cousins.

To summarise the genealogical situation, my maternal Great Grandmother had a
few sibs, and I am researching the two brothers who have not been researched
much up until now.

One brother was Mr Baron Jacob COHEN who had about 10 children. One was
Pauline. Using a combination of genealogy websites and largely thanks to the
Jewish Chronicle I believe I have found Pauline married to a Phillips.
Angela is 3 generations later.

My primary interest is to go over my findings so she can confirm /not my
conclusions.

Of course I would be thrilled if my conclusions are correct and she would be
interested in "family/genealogy chatting".

If someone reading this knows Angela, who per Linked In is an instructor on
the Holocaust at the Imperial War Museum, please would they contact me, so I
can explain my findings fully. I also think that coincidentally she may know
some of my first cousins because I believe they all come >from the same part
of London.

Sincerely,
Dr Rosalind Romem
Rosalind@netvision.net.il

MODERATOR NOTE: Please provide contact information privately.
