Final resting place of Theresia FELDMANN #austria-czech

pheilbrunn@...
 

Hi,

I am trying to trace the last resting place of my aunt Theresia/Therese
FELDMANN born 13th December 1897 in Vienna, Austria to Wilhelm and Bertha
FELDMANN. The facts as I know them are;
She emigrated to Palestine before WW2 though the date is unknown
She was married but again I do not know whether she married in Austria
and emigrated or else met her husband in Palestine. I have searched the IKW
records in Vienna and couldn't find any marriage record.
She was living in Haifa in 1960 with her husband but had no children.
The date of her death is unknown.
I am hoping that someone can help me check the death records and or burial
records for Haifa >from 1960 to say 1985 and that these records might contain
either her maiden name of FELDMANN or that the name Theresia/Therese and her
date of birth are matched.
Any advice or help is greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Peter Heilbrunn

Dear people,
I am one of the few Prostejov Jewish citizens still alive.
I live in Tel Aviv, have visited Prostejov in the last years by myself, with
my children and grandchildren.
I have a good memory and remember still much, especially events and people
from my childhood which was so cruelly terminated.

Mainz isn't in Hesse any more. It's the capital of Rheinland-Pfalz.

A word of caution regarding replies to requests for assistance #ukraine

Stephan Owen Parnes
 

Dear Friends,

Many of us are very happy to help our fellow researchers when they post
requests for assistance. Sometimes we feel that the response is of
sufficient general interest to share with the List; other times we wish to
share information privately. When we share information privately, we may be
doing so because we feel it is not information that is significant to the
general list or we may wish to share something sensitive information
privately.

When we desire to respond privately to a posted email, therefore, we must be
careful to review the addresses to which our reply is being sent.

Last week, however, I discovered a completely new (to me) problem. I set
up a response to a particular member of the list. I was careful to remove
the list's address >from the headers. I left the email in HTML, which is not
accepted by the list. I sent it to the private email address of the
poster--and only later discovered that it did not go to the poster but
rather to the list. Fortunately, the email was bounced automatically.
Unfortunately, it was only days later that my information was transmitted to
the original poster.

When I looked further into the issue, I discovered that although individual
poster's address was in the "To" field on the reply form, it was only
apparently that address. The actual address (which was the listserv
address) was hidden by the poster's address.

While I am not technically knowledgeable enough to understand how this came
about, I realize that this may have happened to other researchers as well.

I would therefore recommend that when you reply to an individual rather than
to the list, you respond using a blank email form (or that you erase all
addresses on the reply form) and type in the correct address without copying
and pasting.

May we all share great success in our searches.

Moderator's comment: It does work when you copy ONLY the sender's address
and paste it into a new email. Many automatically hit the "reply" button
which copies the ENTIRE digest and sends it to the list!

Ship Manifest Issue #ukraine

crl4242@...
 

Hi,
I am trying to find my paternal grandfather on the ship manifest. I know
the name of the ship and date of arrival >from his Petition for Citizenship.
And I found the manifest on Ancestry and Ellis Island. However, I cannot
find his name anywhere. I even checked the manifest for the same ship when
it arrived two months earlier with no luck. I had hoped to find his
Certificate of Arrival for Confirmation, but that document wasn't required
until the year after he arrived. Any suggestions?
