Seeking info on Jean Gottlieb of Newark NJ, born 1882'ish, daughter Ada Salzinger (born 1911'ish) #general

In regards to finding the cemetery where Henry Gottlieb is buried,
Henry may NOT be in a cemetery. I have two people >from that era, one
who died of Parkinson's and the other who died in an asylum, who
donated their bodies/brains to science. For one there is a cenotaph in
the family plot where many members are buried, but for the one who
died in an asylum, there is nothing. At the time of his death, he was
married to a 2nd wife and he had no children.

NYTimes: Frederick Mayer, Jew Who Spied on Nazis After Fleeing Germany, Dies at 94 #germany

Werner Frank
 

As we approach Yom Hashoah, let our GERSIG community see a different
side of the Holocaust through the life of my cousin, Frederick Mayer.
While his plea to bomb the rails to Auschwitz were not met, his
heroics as an OSS agent made history. Seven years after leaving
Germany with his family, Mr. Mayer parachuted into Austria as an
American spy and helped to hasten the Nazi surrender of Innsbruck.
Note the New York Times story of his recent passing at age 94.

Looking for descendants of Max GRUNSFELD: Berlin 1926 - 1938 #germany

Gregory L Barton <glb190@...>
 

Looking for descendants of Max GRUNSFELD, who is listed in the Berlin
telephone directory between 1926 and 1938. His address for much of the
time was 9 Starstrasse, or Starstrasse 9 (esszet) in Dahlem area of Berlin.

He is listed at this address in the phone books >from 1926 to about 1931
and then I believe at another address until 1938. His occupation is
"Fabrikant" or "manufacturer". I believe he was in the wholesale cloth
business.

A woman I know has some property which belonged to him. It is not valuable
but I would like to return to his descendants for its sentimental value.
It would mean a lot to the current owner to be able to return to the family.

A man of that name was killed in the Holocaust at Lahde concentration
camp but I do not believe he is the same person because the other
Max GRUNSFELD lived in different area of Germany and had a different
profession or career.

Assistance in locating someone in Israel #general

Hello,
We have been looking for 15 years for a survivor on my wife's paternal side.
Her father, Henryck (Tzvi) Bieda, told us that he was married before the war
but that his wife died. I wrote to ITS and was able to get documents proving
that she actually survived and remarried and immigrated in 1948 to Israel.
Her name was Sala Gurman nee Eisenberg b 1922. Her second husband was an
Efroim Gurman b 1915. They had a son together by the name of Eliezar Gurman
b 1946. I found an Eliezar Gurman in Haifa and left a couple of messages
with no luck. I can provide his phone number and address if anyone can help.
We would like to see if he has any information about my father-in-law's
family possibly. I have also checked IGRA with no luck and Yad Vashem. Any
assistance would be most appreciated. Please feel free to contact me
privately.

Thank You,

Ken and Ann Rothstein

Re: Databases and available information in Germany #austria-czech

Dear David:
Posen and Danzig are within the area covered by JRI-Poland. The same
material (and that >from the rest of Prussian Poland) is included in the
JewishGen Germany Database if you prefer to search >from there.

GerSIG has many databases, though few as extensive as those at JRI.
Visit http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Germany/ and see the list of
component databases at the bottom of the page.

Regarding Hamburg: Ancestry.com has put a great many vital records >from
there on line, and is adding more.

Baden: the Baden-Wuerttemberg State Archive has put all of the Baden
vital records for 1810-1870 on line (Jewish and other), as well as the
Baden-Wuerttemberg items that were filmed by the Nazis at the end of WW
II and which survive only in the filmed versions. Familysearch.org has
indexed a few towns' worth of the Baden vital records and is doing more.
GerSIG is currently exploring the possibility of indexing the
Wuerttemberg family registers.

Of course, your assistance with any of our projects would be welcomed!
If you're willing to create and maintain a list of all German sources,
our grateful community will send our thanks directly to the hospital
that's treating you for exhaustion. Germany has millions of records kept
in thousands of places, not least because its relatively small Jewish
population lived in hundreds and hundreds of tiny communities, much
smaller than those in the shtetls, towns and cities of eastern Europe.
Moreover, each German state kept--and keeps--its records differently.

Help with Goldschmidt in Hamburg #germany

Sandra Cruz
 

Dear all
I need a help with the GOLDSCHMIDTs >from Hamburg. Some years ago I had
written about the GOLDSCHMIDTs but now I found out that I was on a wrong way.

My greatgrandfather John Abraham GOLDSCHMIDT (Hamburg in March 29
1846-February 09 1913)- son of Abraham Jonas GOLDSCHMIDT (Hamburg
1818-09/15/1877) and Johanna KANN (Frankfurt 03/02/1824-Hamburg 06/16/1896).

About Johanna KANN I had a very successful story but unfortunately not from
the forum. Now I found out that Abraham Jonas GOLDSCHMIDT's parents were:
Jonas Abraham GOLDSCHMIDT and Friederike born LEVYSOHN.

Is there someone >from Hamburg researching GOLDSCHMIDT? And where can I
ask for documents in Hamburg? The Staatsarchiv Hamburg do not have archives
online just an index beginning in 1876. It seems that all were from
Hamburg (Altona) I thank in advance for any help in Hamburg

Dear Miriam,

If you get no takers I could be wrong but I believe the JGSGB
maintains a folder of "orphan" certificates in their library so that
they get the widest possible use by anyone who might be related.
