Marcella,

 

If I recall correctly, there is a NYC Jewish Orphanage records on the Center for Jewish History website.

 

There I was able to find the names of 2 of my mom's cousins who were there in 1897 after there father

died.   The Center for Jewish History did send me their admission records page.

 

I am not sure how they do this today as this was about 18 years when I did this.

 

But hope it helps.  I knew they were in an orphanage but didn't know where so just took a chance to

look it up when I found their website.

Subject: [JewishGen.org] Child, FEIGE/GUSSIE lost in Transit approx 1902...arriving into New York alone

 

Feige aka Gussie [MATUS/MARCUS] was lost in transit  and arrived in New York in abt 1902, alone.  The story has her being 4 years old at the time but she may have been as old as 8…b 1894-1897 Panevesz Lithuania

She may not have been able to convey her last name properly when she arrived.  She was transported to an orphanage. ….? 

Somehow she eventually found family, last name Marcus and by 1925 was married to NATHANSON….she was always known as Gussie in her later life

Any suggestions on how to find Gussie’s earlier days in the orphanage or passage to New York - are most welcome

Looking for descendants of Klara Kramer SORKIN, probably in Israel #ukraine #israel #usa

Joseph Walder
 

Klara SORKIN née KRAMER was born in Ukraine in 1923 and died in Israel in 2014. Her parents were Chava Moisevna MURAKHOVSKAYA (1884-1941) and Shaul (Sheilyk) KRAMER (1886-1941). Chava was a sister of my maternal grandmother, Yenta Ester (1897-1985), who came to the United States in 1923. Chava and Yenta’s parents were Yankel Moshe Avrumov MURAKHOVSKY and Krenya LUCHANSKAYA. The MURAKHOVSKY and LUCHANSKY families lived primarily in Tarashcha and Koshevata.

I am hoping to find descendants of Klara SORKIN in Israel.

I can be reached at 503-715-6254 in the United States or at jscottwalder@....

I have been using the Genteam web site for many years. I have found a wealth of  vital documents and family information for our family in Nickolsburg
and Vienna.  The marriage information includes the Temple, as well as other information.  I join you in highly recommending
this web site to anyone who might have family from a German speaking area.

One of the biggest orphanages in NYC at the turn of the century was the Hebrew Orphan Asylum (called the HOA).  My mother and aunt were there for awhile.  I got their admission and discharge records from the American Jewish Historical Society.

Dear Michael Moe,
                For quite a number of years starting in 1958 I worked as a teacher at Parsons JHS 168 in Queens (New York City-USA), and one of my colleagues was someone named Albert Rogart. he taught science, and sometime in the 1960s or 1970s he left the school to become an Assistant Principal and then a Principal of another junior high school  He and his family lived somewhere on Long Island.

i would love to know the sources for these numbers.  hungary was a country of over 10 million people, so it's hard to imagine that there were only 108 traffickers altogether, and with a jewish population of less than 10%,  that 68 of them were jews.

Re: Sharing family tree information #general

I give them a link to my online tree on my website.  It does not allow download of gedcoms, shows only names and no data for living people.  And some living people are privatized, upon request.  There are some photos there (none - of living people).  I strongly recommend to ALL companies that mother's maiden name is a TERRIBLE security question - and require a second one - often the name of a first pet.  When given choices for security questions - I avoid all questions about relatives - such as your father's middle name, if at all possible.  Cars, proms, streets lived on, pets, schools attended etc - all much better questions.

This is very helpful.  I have noticed quite a few people using the #general hashtag, so many as to make it meaningless.
Can we not restrict the use of this hashtag to procedural questions rather than specific issues regarding our research?

Birth records Mulheim, Cologne, Germany 1895 - Ida GROENER #germany

Mary Henderson
 

Hi, all!

Is anyone aware of a resource that I can use to find a birth record
for Ida GROENER who was reportedly born Apr 13 1895 in Mulheim,
Cologne (Koln), Germany to Heinrich GROENER and Helene ROSENBAUM, or
for her sister, Alwina, born Dec 29, 1897 in the same place? Alwina's
death record lists Helene Rosenbaum as her mother, but I am trying to
substantiate that and find more information on Helene - right now all
I have is her name.

Thank you very much!!!

In the 1920's and 1930's Jews were able to get passports.  USHMM has records from the Stanislawow region. I cannot speak about earlier periods because that is out of scope for our collections.
