Help understand letter in German #poland

Inacio Steinhardt
 

I have a letter written by my grand-father to my father, at the
beginning of WWII, >from Tarnow, Galitsia. It is written in German.
I understand a little German, and I am able to read some sentences.
However, the handwriting is very difficult to me.

How can I upload a copy, and find somebody who would transcribe and
eventually translate it for me?

Thank you

Searching for relatives in Krakow Province #poland

Jenny Rappaport <jennyrappaport@...>
 

I'm writing to the list for help because I'm at a tiny bit of an impasse.

I'm trying to find proof that my relatives lived in Krakow. They are
Schmuel David FEIGENBAUM, his wife, Reizel GLIEDMAN (possibly listed
under FEIGENBAUM), and their three children, Abraham FEIGENBAUM,
Friede (Frederyka possibly) FEIGEBAUM, and Yetta/Jetti FEIGENBAUM
(Hebrew name Yached). >from family history, I know the following:
Schmuel David and Reizel were married in 1872 (possibly only a
religious ceremony); Abraham died as a child of blood poisoning after
a bad tooth extraction; and Yetta was born in May 1885 in the middle
of a flood, and it took them three weeks to return to their home by
boat. (Her birth date was verified by her marriage record >from Lvov.)
After Yetta's birth, the family moved to Lvov--first Dublany and then
Nawaria.

I have records >from when the family lived in Lvov, stating that
Reizel, Friede, and Yetta were born in Krakau. Yet, I'm unable to
find any of my relatives within the city of Krakow itself. I've also
gone through some of the censuses for Podgorze, as well. I am forced
to conclude that when they lived in Krakow, they meant perhaps Krakow
province, instead. But when I search the entire province on JRI, I
still can't find them.

I'd love to have suggestions for where to go next or what to do. The
best I can think of is going through Krakow province in concentric
circles out >from the city of Krakow, trying to find them in any
unindexed records.

Thank you in advance for any and all help.

Best,

Information for Najzdinka LICHTENBERG-FINKELSTEIN #ukraine

Rashi Rosenzweig
 

Dear Genners:

Najzdinka LICHTENBERG-FINKELSTEIN was my great aunt (my paternal
grandmother's younger sister). Born in Odessa in Czarist Russia to a
wealthy family,
she became one of the most profound and well-respected pianists in the
Soviet Union with a PhD in piano and music theory. I believe that she
lectured at the Music Conservatory at the University of Moscow. She
resided both in Moscow and at our family's home in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Neither my father nor I ever met her as she lived and died in the
Soviet Union and never visited the States. She was in touch with our
family in England and I remember during the years of the Iron Curtain,
my great aunt Rose placed a phone call to her in the mid 1970s. My
Dad described it as one of the most dramatic things he had ever
witnessed nor did he ever see his aunt Rose ever react that way before
in his life, as neither sister saw or spoke with one another for over
5 decades at least.

Is there any way I can research her with the information that I have?
Any ideas people?

Thank you all very much and I hope to hear >from somebody soon.

Kind regards,

Rashi Rosnezweig

David PIZA London 1817-1890 #general

Rene van Wijngaarden
 

David PIZA 1817-1890, London, of Sephardic Lineage was appointed Hazan and Mohel in
Montreal-Canada abt 1840-1845. He retuned to London-England where he officiated as
reverend more than 30 years ago. As his parents had died when he was abt. 4 he was
interned in the London Sephardic Orphanage. Pizza married Hannah ISAACS, daughter
of Aaron ISAACS of Manchester-England who probably was Azkenazic. I have been
trying to find the wedding date and place of David and Hannah but no luck till
now. The wedding must have been in or before 1842 as their first child Rachel Piza
was born that year in North America or Montreal. Any information is more than
welcome.

Jozef ben Rafael TAUBENSCHLAG of Tarnow #galicia

Dan Oren <doren@...>
 

Through a small miracle, I found the tombstone of Jozef ben Rafael
TAUBENSCHLAG (died 1912, age 75) of Tarnow in the Tarnow cemetery
on Friday. Based on his father's name and the city and year of death,
he is likely a relative, though I have not encountered his specific name
in any other location. Does his specific name connect with anyone on
this group's tree or records?

Re: Disappearance of Trail in Paterson, New Jersey??? #general

Ann Rabinowitz
 

It appears that perhaps it isn't a disappearance that is in order here with this
family, but not enough types of records have been checked. For instance,
considering it is 1940 which is the disappearance point, it is likely that male
members of the family were drafted or volunteered into the military for World War
II and the father would be listed in the old man's draft listing.

Usually, city directories have the names of individuals and/or their businesses or
residences and should be checked.

I know >from my family in Paterson, they might have been considered "disappeared"
as they did the following things:
One son moved to Bridgeport, CT, to live with his aunt during high school and
another son moved to go to college at Rutgers. Later, one son moved to Florida to
work and then was drafted for the Air Force and moved to England and didn't return
until 1946 when he returned to Florida to work. Neither of the sons moved back to
Paterson.

In other Paterson "disappearances", cousins moved to nearby towns such as
Plainfield, Perth Amboy, and other suburbs of the towns which came into general and
popular use after the war in order to open businesses.

The most common "disappearance" was that of the women in the family who married and
moved to other towns or states following their husbands and trends to move to new
suburbs and places for better opportunities.

A final consideration of "disappearance" were those individuals in the family who
died and their spouses remarried thereby leaving no trail. In fact, I remember a
Paterson family whose husband died and the mother took herself and all of her
children to Plainfield to live and after that the children married and moved to
different places. This was also the case of individuals who retired and moved
usually to Florida. However, checking the Social Security records could find them
easily enough if they had signed up for it.

So, I suggest trying a greater array of records and places in New Jersey or even
Florida. For instance, Florida has a 1935 and 1945 Census.
