Philip Hesske <phesske@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I am currently searching information about family members who hail >from Kishinev, Moldova. It
proves difficult to find and gain access to reliable sources without speaking either Russian or
Ukrainian. What be your recommendation to request documents such as birth, marriage and
death certificates (civil offices, national archives, synagogues) ?

Maybe someone among this group might have information about following person :

My mother's maternal grandfather
- David Kopelman, born on October 23rd, 1877 in Kishinev (son of Manis Kopelman and Lea
Cheina/Sonya Finkelstein).
- Marriage with Fanny (Fania) Aynhorn, born on January 30th, 1881 in Ekaterinoslav (daugher
of Isaak Aynhorn and Marie Ducat (?) in Saint-Petersburg or Ekaterinoslav (?) on December 
29th, 1907.

I would be grateful for every valuable information you could provide me with to carry on my
research. Thank you very much for your help.

Best regards,
Philip Hesske (France)

Re: SILBER/SILBERT in Boer War #southafrica

A Micheal Silber is noted as a POW guard in David Saks' book "Jews in
the Boer War.". The lists there were compiled by late chief rabbi
Louis Rabinowitz and are incomplete.

Start with the online database of the South African National Archives.
You can write to the Defence Force archives in Pretoria.

Viewmate - request for help with translation of motives for Ploetzensee imprisonment #general

Dear Genners,

I would like to ask you for help with the 2 following documents that I
have published on Viewmate:

1933 imprisonment file
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM40916

1937 imprisonment file
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM40917

My great-great uncle Walter FABIAN was imprisonned twice in
Ploetzensee prison Berlin-Charlottenburg before being deported and
murdered.
I have managed to decipher most of the text, but:

1) I would like help understanding what is written in the grid at the
bottom, particularly under "Genaue Bezichnung der Strasstaten" which
must indicate the motive for imprisonment

2) I understand that the 2 streets mentioned on these 2 documents
(1933-Gollnow Str. & 1937 Dragoner Str) no longer exist. I would be
very grateful to anyone able to give me their exact location in
Berlin, the equivalent, present-day road-names

With many thanks, as ever

Kind regards,

Alexander Watson, Genas (near Lyon) France
