Researching; Helene NAGEL #austria-czech

Robert Fraser
 

Dear Friends -

My great uncle, Sigmund Nagel (1871-1940) and his first wife
Frieda, who lived in Vienna, had two children that I knew
of. They are Moritz (1899-1976), who migrated to New York
before WW2, and Leopold (1902-1909) who died young and is
buried in Vienna's Zentralfriedhof with his Mother, who died
in childbirth.

Sigmund later remarried and the couple migrated to New York
in 1939.

But I discovered a few years ago a record of Helene Nagel. I
had never heard of her. She is listed on the excellent
website genteam.au. She is recorded as having been born on
17 July 1897, which makes her the eldest of the three
children of Frieda and Sigmund. I had never heard of her
before, and I find no record of her burial in the Vienna IKG
cemetery database.

Is it possible that anyone on this List might have heard of
her? Maybe even related - the Nagels were a large family
(and with in-laws even bigger) but sadly many of them were
murdered in the Holocaust. Those who survived were scattered
to the four corners of the globe; USA and UK that I know of,
and no doubt elsewhere.

Love to hear >from anyone!

Seeking advice for first visit to Vienna #austria-czech

jfentman@...
 

My husband and I will be in Vienna Sept. 19-24, 2015. I would like to hire
an English speaking guide for a day to tour Jewish sites including visits
to some family graves in Zentralfriedhof. Can anyone give me a recommendation?
I would also like to visit the Jewish cemeteries in Mistelbach, Austria and
Veseli nad Moravou, Slovakia and would appreciate any advice abut the
best way to do so -- on our own in rental car or with a guide?

Re: Adoptees born in New York state can now request their original birth certificates #general

Asparagirl <asparagirl@...>
 

An update to my posting >from yesterday: while the long-awaited bill
giving adult adoptees born in New York the right to their original
birth certificates has passed the New York State Assembly (the vote
was 125 to 19), it is important to note that the bill still does have
to pass the New York State Senate in the next few weeks, and then be
signed by the governor. It seems likely that it will pass, as it was
significantly watered down >from the more permissive bill that open
records and adoptee rights advocates had originally campaigned for,
and the Senate Majority Leader is listed as a sponsor of the Senate
version.

Some adoptee organizations are upset at how much more limited this
bill's scope will be >from what they had originally proposed. For more
information, check the Facebook group "New York State Adoptee
Equality" and the group's website at
http://www.nyadoptionequality.com/ . (I have no affiliation with this
group.)

You can track the status of this bill (S05964) through the New York
State Senate here:

Surnames and Places #ukraine

June Genis
 

I recently learned that I have a possible maternal (Okun) link to a
member of the Zeide family who were >from Shpola, Ukraine. The
grandmother of a person I have a strong genetic connection to was
Esther Okun Kanfel, according to the automated translation of the
email he sent me in Russian. She died in Moscow about 1938 but I have
learned that after the 17th century Jews were not allowed to live in
Moscow for a long time. I'm not sure when that ended but I'm fairly
certain that my family was not in Moscow by the end of the 17th
century. I therefore suspect that she, and perhaps even her father
Gamshei Okun may have moved there >from elsewhere. Both would have had
to been born in the mid to late 19th century.

Either Gamshei or Esther would appear to be contemporary with my great
grandfather Abraham Okun. My grandfather Simon (Solomon) Okun claimed
to have been born in Poltava in 1874. I have no idea where Abraham was
from but I have cousins who emigrated >from Rogachev, Belarus. I am
thinking that the Okuns and Kanfels might have been in the same place
at some point and that Esther moved to Moscow sometime after she
married a Kanfel.

I have had no luck searching for Gamshei or Esther Okun and searches
on "Kanfel" on Jewishgen have returned an assortment of spellings which
did NOT include that spelling. I suspect I may be being mislead by
the translation program. What other ways might Kanfel appear in
English? I was going to include the original Russian here but
apparently that won't work with Jewishgen's software..

I would appreciate suggestions on what to search for where, as well as
anything more specific that anyone might know about these families.

Thanks,
