Searching: Louis GOLDBERG, Brooklyn, NY, aviator in WWI #general

Alfred A. Goldberg <alfran@...>
 

Hi, I am looking for the children of Louis GOLDBERG who lived in
Brooklyn, NY. He was an aviator in WW1, and I believe was a graduate of
Cornell. He also was a stockbroker.
He had a brother named Arthur who was a Dentist. They were first
cousins to my father, also Louis M. GOLDBERG. They all went to Manual
Training High School in Brooklyn. My father went to Polytechnic
Institute of Brooklyn and graduated approx 1920.

The name GOLDBERG is almost impossible to trace, and any info would be
deeply appreciated.

Translation of Yad Vashem Hall of Names registry form #general

Gene and Ellen Sucov <genellen@...>
 

The documents entered into the Hall of Names consist of answers to some 14
questions. The documents were submitted by relatives or friends of
people who they know were killed by the Nazis. It needs to be emphasized
that the entries into the Hall of Names are VOLUNTARY submissions by
people who are motivated to enter and fill out the forms. Even though the Hall
of Names has many thousands of names in its files, they by no means have all
the names of people who perished in the Shoah. Therefore, no conclusion can
be drawn >from the absence of names >from the documentation in the Hall of
Names.
The registration form at the Hall of Names at Yad Vashem is printed in
Hebrew (although I am sure that English versions are available to
registrants >from the English speaking countries) and the entries are
usually hand written in Hebrew or Yiddish and sometimes in English or
Slavic languages. For the benefit of those who are searching their family
histories through the Hall of Names pages, I present the translation of the
14 questions that are asked of registrants.

1. Family Name; 2. Given Name; 3. Father's Name; 4.
Mother's Name; 5.Birth date; 6. Birth place; 7. Later residences;
8.Profession; 9. Nationality; 10. Residence during the war; 11.Date and
location of death; 12. Family information; 13. Wife or husband name and
age; 14. Name, age, location and date of death of children.
The entry is signed by the submitter who gives the following
information. 1. Name; 2. Address; 3. Relation to the deceased; 4. Date and
place of signature.

Sincerely, Gene Sucov

SUCCESS! Thanks to Henry Wellisch and JGSLA! #hungary

Marian Brown <mbrown@...>
 

Dear all,

WELL! I have a tale to tell, and a rationale for attending Jewish
Genealogical conferences.

While listening to Daniel Schlyter last summer at the conference in LA,
I was sitting next to Henry Wellisch, whom I didn't know. He said
something about how much Daniel knew -- even more than he about some
things -- and he, Henry, was >from Hungary. Whereupon I asked him to
look at a Cleveland, Ohio death certificate of an older brother of my
grandmother. Place of birth was "Bugdein" -- almost illegible.
Whereupon Henry said that would be the pronunciation of "Bogdany."

Over these many months, I found out through gazetteers that Bogdany is
now Bogdanovce, that the synagogue was in Lemesany, and that the Mormons
had filmed the Jewish records. Mind you the suranme is Newman and is
like looking for needle in a haystack. But there they were! My great
grandparents and the five older siblings of my grandmother. Also, my
gggf was listed as Salomon Heimowitz, a rabbi, which I did not know.

Thank you, Henry Wellisch! And, thank you, JGSLA.

Now that I am sure of the town, I have written to the Presov archives to
see if they can find additional information -- especially the birth
record of my grandmother in 1869.

Also, is there a way to find information about rabbis in Slovakia? The
time frame would be approximately 1830-1865.

A big thank you to Hungarian SIG, also and a big Happy Birthday to
Louis, our mentor!

I have a document that said that my ggmother Rachel Gertenstein came from
Dervil. I can not find that shtetl anywhere. Does anyone think that it could
be Shkudvil? It may be a wild hunch of mine but I have no other ideas. Please

Can we also have it in Latvian? Some of the shtetls now in Latvia were
