Israel Consul General to attend film screening at IAJGS conference #germany

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

There are so many exciting things happening at this summer's conference.
We are thrilled to announce that Israel's consul general Ravit Baer
will present the August 11 screening of the acclaimed Israeli movie "The
Dove Flyer." Ms. Baer, a career diplomat in the Israeli foreign
service, served in Europe and Africa before becoming Israel's Consul
General to the Pacific Northwest.

"The Dove Flyer" will be shown as part of a Jewish film festival
that has been curated for the conference by leading Jewish film scholar
and teacher of cinema Dr. Eric Goldman. The film is based on Eli Amir's
blockbuster novel of the same name, brings to life the fragile, doomed
world of the Baghdad Jewish community in 1950.

It is one of many films in the festival of 33 motion pictures that
celebrate Sephardic Jewry, a major track of this summer's conference.
Other highlights of the Seattle conference include the opening night
keynote address by Dr. Devin Naar and the banquet address by Judy
Russell, a Certified Genealogist and Certified Genealogical Lecturer.

In addition, as at previous conferences, key lectures and presentations
will be made available through LIVE! a real-time video streaming service
after up to 90 days after the conference. It's not too late to register

One Couple: Two Marriages? #general

Liz Hanellin
 

Dear Genners,

I noticed an interesting discrepancy in my great-grandparents' citizenship papers.
Samuel and Ethel SHUKET raised their family in Lipovitz (Lypovets), Kiev. Samuel
immigrated to the US in December 1913 (via Bremen, Germany) with one of their sons.
Ethel, nee SPECTOR/SPEKTOR, immigrated ten years later in August 1923 (via
Cherbourg, France), with two other children, a daughter (my grandmother) and a son.
A second daughter remained behind, living in Moscow (she never came to the US).
Information about this daughter remaining in Moscow and the names of the children
are just about the only things that are consistent between Samuel's Declaration of
Intention (as SCHUCHAT)/Petition for Citizenship (as SHUCHAT) on the one hand and
Ethel's Petition for Citizenship (as SHUKET) on the other. For example, all of the
childrens' birthdates are listed differently between his and her documents
(although the years are largely consistent) and Ethel's birthdate and year also
differ between their documents. (Btw, there was a fifth child, a son who served in
the military there and was killed in about 1920; I'll be posting about him
separately at some point).

But the most interesting discrepancy to me is their wedding date and location: He
lists it as May 30, 1889, in Kiev, Russia. She lists it as July 13, 1891, in
Warsaw, Poland.

As noted above, Samuel immigrated to the US ten years before Ethel. His manifest
(as SCHOCHET) lists Lipovitz as his last place of residence; her manifest (as
SZUCHAT) lists Warsaw as her last place of residence. Does it seem reasonable to
think that either Ethel or Samuel had family in Warsaw? (The US records I have for
both of them say they were born in Kiev/Ukraine and I have no records yet >from
Ukraine or Poland.)

Could the different marriage dates and locations indicate one religious marriage
and one civil marriage? If so, was it common for two years to lapse between a
religious and civil marriage? And in different locations so far apart?

Other thoughts?

Thanks,
Liz Hanellin

Gottlieb and Hermer #southafrica

Victoria Fisch
 

Minna Gottlieb nee Hermer died in Johannesburg on 1 Oct 1951, and was
buried in West Park Cemetery.

She was born in 1879 in Grobina, Latvia, to Hirsch Hermer, and was
married to Abram Gottlieb, who died in 1941 in Latvia.

Minna and Abram had two known children, Leiser Herman (b. 1914) and
Gotthold (b. 1916). Gotthold was in a DP camp in Italy in 1945 and
immigrated to Israel in 1948.

The family story is that Minna went to South Africa (date unknown; the
last stamp on her internal Latvian passport is 1936) because she had a
daughter there, name unknown.

I am trying to ascertain what family members may have been in South
Africa, perhaps Hermer relatives. Any clues would be greatly
appreciated!

Thank you.

New Holocaust-period records on the All Galicia Database #galicia

Tony Kahane <tkahane@...>
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the addition to the All Galicia
Database of two important sets of Holocaust records. This database is
free and available to all, at: http://search.geshergalicia.org


1. Debica-area Holocaust-period death testimonies. Rzeszow State
Archive, Fond 881, Sygn. 1 (791 records)
These are testimonies, provided by people who survived, of Jews who
died during the Holocaust - all but a handful of them murdered. They
were gathered after the end of the war in Europe. The records are in a
single file, divided into "volumes" with town names, which appear to
refer to the places where the testimonies were gathered. The people
named in the records, though, came >from a wide range of localities in
the Debica area. Each testimony is signed by two witnesses.

In indexing these records, we have extracted the following information:
Names of person, names of parents, town of origin, date of testimony
(where given), reported date of death, reported place of death,
reported cause of death, and the names (where the signatures are
legible) of the two people signing the form of testimony.

The reported places of death include:
Bagienica (near Dabrowa), Baranowa, Belzec, Biala Podlaska, Biecz,
Biesiadka, Bochnia, Borki, Borki Nizinskie, Borowa, Brzezany,
Brzostek, Chorzelow, Chrzastow, Czermin, Dabrowa, Debica, Deborzyn,
Debowa (near Jodlowa), Dubienka, Dukla, Dulabka, Dulcza, Frysztak,

Wolka Tanewska, Zagorze, Zaklikow, and Zdziary.


2. Doctors' Questionnaires, 1941-1943 (133 records)
These are detailed, four-page forms (some with face photos) that
Jewish medical and health-care workers were obliged to complete under
the Nazi occupation., sometimes in duplicate or triplicate. The people
named include doctors, dentists, dental technicians, nurses, midwives,
radiologists, cosmeticians, medical students and others.

All these forms were completed in eastern Galician towns. Yad Vashem
holds a set of 2,001 questionnaires of the same type, also from
eastern Galicia, which were indexed for JewishGen some ten years ago
and are described and can be searched on JewishGen's web site:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/holocaust/0132_polish_medical_questionnaires.html

The records Gesher Galicia has now transcribed consist of 121
questionnaires held in the Przemysl State Archive (Fond 154, IGW102,
Sygn. 31-33) and 12 questionnaires >from AGAD, Warsaw (Fond 424, Sygn.
9, 13, 17, 64, 97 and 179).

Gesher Galicia has fully indexed these records, extracting the
following information:
Names of person, date and place of birth, place of residence and
street address, marital status, occupation, institution and town of
practice, spouse's name and date of birth, children's names and
ages/dates of birth, names of grandparents [not the parents], date of
professional examination, and period and place of studies.

The places of birth include:
Bajkowce, Biala (Silesia), Bolechow, Brody, Brzezany, Brzozow,
Buczacz, Budzanow, Czortkow, Czortkow-Wygnanka, Czyszki, Dabrowice,
Dawidow, Dolina, Drohobycz, Graz, Grzymalow, Jaroslaw, Jezierna,

Digitized Familianten books in the Czech Republic National Archives #austria-czech

omri@...
 

Dear Group

Searching in the web site of the National Archives of the Czech Republic
(http://www.nacr.cz/eindex.htm ) I read that in 2013 the archives with the
financial support of JewishGen digitized 190 volumes of the archival file
"Knihy Zidovsky familianten" (Books of Jewish Families, Juedische
Familiantenbuecher), whose records often date back to the mid-18th century,
of which 4 volumes are >from Moravian Jewish communities (Hranice, Kostelec
and Kyjov).
I could not find the digitized files on line. Does anyone know if they are
online and where to find them? Are they accessible to Jewishgen members?
And more generally are there any Moravian Familianten books online?

Thank you,

Neumann in Lipnitz, Bohemia #austria-czech

w.e.eckstein@...
 

I'm trying to trace two Neumann children, born in Lipnitz in Bohemia, and
have no idea where it is and where to look at badatelna.
Gabriel NEUMANN and Marie EHRLICH had a son Moritz, born 6 May 1861 in
Lipnitz (and died 16 Aug 1913 in Vienna). His birth certificate was issued
in Pravonin (following his Vienna marriage record).
Gabriel NEUMANN and Marie EHRLICH had a daughter Sofie, born 2 Nov 1865 in
Lipnitz (and died 17 July 1939 in Vienna marr. Gruenhut).

First I checked the Lipnitz / Lipnice nad Sazavou records - no NEUMANN at
all.
Pravonin also don't have them.

An old geographical index has four Lipnitz in Bohemia:
1 in the region of Deutschbrod - this is Lipnice nad Sazavou
2 in the Blowitz region, Pilsen
3 in the Koeniginhof/Elbe region (Dvur Kralove)
4 in the Wittingau (Trebon) region

BTW, 1 has the birth record of Albert/Adalbert/Abraham GGRUENHUT who married
Sofie NEUMANN in Vienna.

Any idea?

New Holocaust-period records on the All Galicia Database #austria-czech

tkahane@...
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the addition to the All Galicia
Database of two important sets of Holocaust records. This database is
free and available to all, at: http://search.geshergalicia.org


1. Debica-area Holocaust-period death testimonies. Rzeszow State
Archive, Fond 881, Sygn. 1 (791 records)
These are testimonies, provided by people who survived, of Jews who
died during the Holocaust - all but a handful of them murdered. They
were gathered after the end of the war in Europe. The records are in a
single file, divided into =E2=80=9Cvolumes=E2=80=9D with town names, which =
appear to
refer to the places where the testimonies were gathered. The people
named in the records, though, came >from a wide range of localities in
the Debica area. Each testimony is signed by two witnesses.

In indexing these records, we have extracted the following information:
Names of person, names of parents, town of origin, date of testimony
(where given), reported date of death, reported place of death,
reported cause of death, and the names (where the signatures are
legible) of the two people signing the form of testimony.

The reported places of death include:

Biesiadka, Bochnia, Borki, Borki Nizinskie, Borowa, Brzezany,

2. Doctors' Questionnaires, 1941-1943 (133 records)
These are detailed, four-page forms (some with face photos) that
Jewish medical and health-care workers were obliged to complete under
the Nazi occupation., sometimes in duplicate or triplicate. The people
named include doctors, dentists, dental technicians, nurses, midwives,
radiologists, cosmeticians, medical students and others.

All these forms were completed in eastern Galician towns. Yad Vashem
holds a set of 2,001 questionnaires of the same type, also from
eastern Galicia, which were indexed for JewishGen some ten years ago
and are described and can be searched on JewishGen=E2=80=99s web site:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/holocaust/0132_polish_medical_questionna=
ires.html

The records Gesher Galicia has now transcribed consist of 121
questionnaires held in the Przemysl State Archive (Fond 154, IGW102,
Sygn. 31-33) and 12 questionnaires >from AGAD, Warsaw (Fond 424, Sygn.
9, 13, 17, 64, 97 and 179).

Gesher Galicia has fully indexed these records, extracting the
following information:
Names of person, date and place of birth, place of residence and
street address, marital status, occupation, institution and town of
practice, spouse=E2=80=99s name and date of birth, children=E2=80=99s names=
