Conversion to Judaism in Germany #general

HarnsDD@...
 

Can anyone recommend the best method for finding information about a relative
who converted to Judaism in Cologne, Germany around 1920? Specifically, I'm
looking for the name of the synagogue, name of the rabbi, and whether it was
an Orthodox synagogue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Searching: GIBIAN(SKI), Poland #general

Bheinrich@...
 

All this lumber discussion raises a question for me. My 90 year old father
maintains that our family name Gibian (Gibianski in Poland) means pine forest.
The earliest Gibianski mention in Landsmann was >from Giby. Is there anything
to the theory?

Also, family tradition has it that the Gibian family was descended >from the
Gibeonites. The Gibeonites were Temple servants in Jerusalem and were punished
by Joshua ( Josh 9:29) for their ruse and made to be hewers of wood and water
carriers. Gibeon still exists-now called al-Jib, but this theory sounds too
far fetched to have any truth. Any ideas?

There are two distinct Jewish branches of Gibian--Ours >from Suwalki and one
from Czechoslovakia. I have been in contact with many of those members, but we
can not seem to get a connection. I somehow feel we must be related, but don't
know whether the family went >from Czech to Poland or the other way around.
There are mentions of Gibianski in Poland starting in the late 1700's. Any
suggestions?

Re: Prussia, Bavaria, etc. Research #general

Jozef Jacobs <jacobs@...>
 

I have found every document available, but all I can find for place of birth is
Prussia for one of them and Bavaria for the other (Husband and wife).
The name is LOWENSTEIN, not uncommon.

During a certain period, Prussia (Preussen) as well as Bavaria (Bayern)
used to be independant states f.i. kingdoms). The indication that you have
of the places of birth therefor is very rough. Maybe in combination
with the actual period that you are referring to, one could draw some
conclusions. Think it's a difficult one.

Establishing date of death and place of burial #general

Stan Goodman <l_luciano@...>
 

I have, I think, exhausted all the possibilities available to me for
establishing the date (or even just the year) of the death of Herman
GOODMAN, who was listed in the 1920 US Census at 10 Littleton Avenue in
Newark NJ, having immigrated to the US in 1900 and been naturalized in
1906.

I need the date of death in order to apply for a death certificate >from the
NJ autorities, and I need this in order to find his place of burial. All
this is necessary in order to locate his headstone, which I wish to have
photographed.

There is an index of local names that appeared in the now defunct Newark
Evening News, in which I had hoped to find an obituary, but I have found
that this is an unpublished, handwritten document available for viewing
only at the Newark Public Library, which I am unable to visit; the library
gets $75/hour for doing research of this sort, which is stiff for me,
certainly as an open-ended proposition.

If anyone can suggest a feasible path for me to follow >from this distance,
or is in a position to supply the needed date >from any source of which I
have not thought, I would be very grateful.
