Re: Else GRUN nee LINDNER #general

Fritz Neubauer
 

Dear Roy,

the 1939 Vienna address book shows Else GRUEN (umlaut) living alone at
the address Liechtensteinstr. 15 you provided. Since her name is listed
it means that she did not have a husband living with her, otherwise HE
would be listed as "head of household": you can look at this entry in
the digitalized version of Lehmann's Adressbuch through the link

http://www.digital.wienbibliothek.at/wbrobv/periodical/zoom/261656

Since she was officially registered under this address in 1939,
you could get the address registration form (Meldezettel) with her
signature and information about her birth place >from the Vienna City Archives
and >from the records of the Jewish Community (Kultusgemeinde),
possibly also her marriage records >from there. There are no records about
her assets that would normally have to be filled before leaving under
her married name or surname.

Note that help about all this may also be available through the AustriaCzech
mailing list here on JewishGen:

austriaczech@lyris.jewishgen.org

where you could post your query also.

I wish you further success

snip....Have you come across the name Else GRUN nee LINDNER. (1888-1943) ?
She married a Mr GRUN. I don't know where she originally came >from
(possibly Tarnopol area, Galicia), but lived in VIENNA around late 1930-1940.

Kosow Poleski Destruction #general

Bob Fitterman
 

I have been unable to find an English-language narrative that
describes the end of the Jewish population of Kosow Poleski. I know
that there was one major event that occurred there in the 1940s that
was responsible for the murder of what remained of the Jewish
population. The memorial book for this shtetl has not been translated
into English. Is someone aware of where I can find more information?

Thanks,
Bob Fitterman

1790-1792 census records for 200+ places in Krakow Voivodeship #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

A very important collection of Jewish census records >from 1790-1792
for about 240 towns and villages in what was then Krakow Voivodeship
(Province) is now viewable (but not searchable) online, as scans on
szukajwarchiwach.pl. The format and details vary somewhat by place,
but generally list entire households, with given names, patronymic of
head of household, relationships between members, and ages.

Genealogists able to link this information with post-surname sources
might learn the name of an ancestor born in the early 18th or late
17th century. And the information could potentially help link
families whose most recent common ancestor lived before surname
adoption. However, for many researchers there might be a gap in the
availability of later sources making it difficult to connect to these
people.

The scans are presented as small thumbnail images, medium-size images
that are sometimes legible, and full-size images that are usually
legible. To begin using the collection, view the nearly 1000
thumbnail images at:

http://www.szukajwarchiwach.pl/29/30/0/3/52/str/1/1/1000#tabSkany

To check if your town or village of interest is included, you can
consult the fifth-seventh images at the beginning, an alphabetical
list of places (I do not know whether it is accurate). After that,
the images are generally alphabetical by place name. So, if you are
interested in Zagorze, scroll to the bottom. Click on a thumbnail
image where you think it might approximately appear based on the
alphabetization. (This step could be improved if a linked index were
created.)

The medium-size image will pop up on your screen, which might be
sufficiently large for you to read the place name, which is usually
near the top left in pencil. If you do not see a place name, click on
the right or left side of the image (an arrow icon will appear under
your cursor) to go to the next or previous image. Once you see a
place name, click outside of the image or on the "x" on the top right
to close the medium-size image, and then click on a different
thumbnail image that should be closer alphabetically to your place of
interest, repeating until you find your place.

Once you have found your place, or if you cannot read a place name on
a medium-size image, you are ready to view the full-size image. In
the bottom right of the medium-size image's pop-up are two icons in
white on black circular backgrounds -- one a rectangle with marks at
the corners and the other a "z." To view the full-size image, click
the rectangle icon. Another window should pop up, probably without
any image initially. Wait, and the full-size image should appear
within a minute. The image will probably be too big to be displayed
all at once, in which case you can move your cursor over the image,
click with your mouse, and, while holding your mouse button down, drag
the image around so other parts are visible. Below the image,
centered, is a download link (you might have to use the window's
scrollbar to see the link).

An example of a typical full-size image is the following >from Radwanowice:

http://www.szukajwarchiwach.pl/29/30/0/3/52/skan/full/EnyuGT6YjcnXKc411IGw2w

The purpose of this message is to notify you of this newly available
resource, but I regret I am not able to provide individual assistance
with look-ups for your family or town.

These scans were provided by the National Archives in Krakow. What a
tremendous gift they have given us by putting them online.

Entrance tourism to Israel during the British Mandate #general

davidnead@...
 

Hello
Does anyone have information on how to register the tourists who came
to Israel during the British Mandate (_1920-1930)?
My grandfather may come as a tourist to Israel Israel then stayed
illegally. Could it be that it was a different type of credentials for
a visit or for immigration? Do I need to look elsewhere than the norm
in the case and he did not enter illegal immigrant to Israel, but
Israel as a tourist?
I thank you in advance
David Nesher

Seeking Mickey Rosenberg, once of Bloemfontein, South Africa #general

Eli Rabinowitz
 

Hi all

I am searching on behalf of Amit Naor, for a distant cousin or family,
surname ROZENBERG or ROSENBERG.

His family called him Mickey, so his original name could have been
Nikola/Miklos. Alternatively, he could have been known as Nicholas or Michael.

The family originated in Sombor, in Serbia today, although their ancestry was
Jewish-Hungarian.

It appears that the family lived in BLOEMFONTEIN South Africa, probably
through the 1950s and 60s.

Mickey may have owned a dairy and his son may have been a swimmer at a
Maccabi Games in the 1960s or 70s, most likely 1973.

The family may have later migrated to the US or Canada.

Please send your responses privately to:

eli@elirab.com

Many thanks and regards

(US) Ellis Island Immigration Facts #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Genealogy In Time has posted an article on Ellis Island Immigration Facts.
Ellis Island was the main port of entry for many immigrants to America-some
estimate about 1/3 of all Americans can trace their ancestors through Ellis
Island. Only third class or steerage passengers were processed through
Ellis Island. During World War II, Ellis Island was used to intern German,
Italian and Japanese prisoners of war. This is a good primer for your
beginning genealogists.
