Re: Hebrew Translation Requests: Two News Articles #translation

Hello Sharon,

The first document declares the death of Itta Einbund in 1941. The declaration was made by Re'aya Einbund. Unfortunately I can't understand the other details as they are written, I believe, in Russian (although I might be very well be wrong).
The address of Re'aya is also provided- Hatayasim 64/520 Ashkelon, Israel.
The second document is the declaration of the death of Banya or Benya Einbund in 1941 and was provided by the same person.

Hope this helps,

travel from Besarabia to Hamburg in 1905 #bessarabia

Ricardo Alejandro rubinstein
 

My grandgrandparents (Aranovich, Guerberoff) lived in Izmail,Besarabia, today Ukraine, in 1905 they came to Argentina by ship from Hamburg to Buenos Aires in the Cap Arcona, from Hamburg Sud company
I d like to know how they travelled from Besarabia to Hamburg by that time. By ship by the Danube River, or they went to Odessa and then by ship from the Mediterranean Sea, or perhaps by any means in land crossing.
Are possible routes or records to search?


Re: Citizenship #general #usa

Stephen Weinstein
 

Bob,

At one time, a woman who married a citizen automatically became a citizen.  Also, a woman citizen who married a non-citizen automatically lost her citizenship.  The law has changed; citizenship is no longer automatically gained or lost through marriage.  If your mother married your father when women automatically acquired citizenship by marriage to (male) citizens, then she was a citizen.


At all times, there were records that had spelling mistakes and there were name changes.  At some times, there were records that don't survive for various reasons or can't be found easily.  You cannot conclude that someone was not a naturalized citizen merely because you have not found a record of it.

In summary,

Can I conclude that she was not a citizen?  No
Were the laws different then? Yes

I am wondering if there is somebody having time and ability to search an marriage act in and Poland Archives to translate it in English.
It concerns Berek SZER, son of Pinkwas Moszek SZER and Kajla KIERSZENBLUM, married in Lublin (Poland) in 1917. The act is number 147.
Thanks a lot

Else Stransky burial #austria-czech

Daniela Torsh
 

I am starting to research a relative of my great grandmother Wilhelmine
POLLAK. She had an older sister Charlotte Loebl born in Eidlitz in Bohemia
who married Moritz FRANKL. One of their children was Else Frankl born in
Decin in Bohemia 1882 who married Emil Stransky . Emil died in 1937 and
was buried in the Zentralfriedhof gate 4. Else and her daughter Annie fled
the Nazis in Vienna for London in 1939. Her son Paul survived.
Else died in 1975 in London and I would like to find her grave and burial
records. I've checked Jewish Gen with no luck. Her daughter Annie born
Vienna 1909, who may have remained single, also died in England. She lived
in Surrey and died April 22 1993 and was buried in Wandsworth.
Can anyone help me with these two women please?

Aperion is NOT a name.  It is a litter as in  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Litter_(vehicle
The word is used to describe the exalt an individual ( who would have been important enpugh to be carried in such a litter)

Dear Friends - I've placed on ViewMate (83813) a cropped and enlarged photo of my grandfather Adolf Finkelstein, in the Austrian army in 1918.

Could anyone tell me;
what his rank was? The family story is that he was a 'feldwebel'

what medal he's wearing on the LHS of this tunic?

Genealogy research leads to discovery of cousins thought to have died in the Holocaust #holocaust

Michael Moritz
 

You may find interesting my recent blog post about how genealogical research led to the discovery of cousins who we thought died in the Holocaust. After my grandmother died, I was able to find through genealogical research what she never knew: she had two first cousins who, completely unbeknownst to her, survived the war and lived out their lives in Europe.  The post contains many searching strategies especially for Austrian (Vienna) and general Holocaust genealogy research.  https://moritzresearch.blogspot.com/2020/08/we-thought-they-died-in-holocaust-how.html

Lost Nazi property claim record #holocaust #germany

Maurine McLellan
 

I had previously found a record in Nazi Property Claims for Alma Bejach (daughter of Max Michel Bejach). The record said Alma died 28 July 1942. Unfortunately, I failed to record where I found the record. I would like to go back and review it so see if there is any other information to be gleaned. I have looked in Ancestry, JewishGen, Familysearch, Arolsen, USHMM, Yad Vashem, MyHeritage, and Gesher Galicia. Do any of you brilliant researchers out there know of other sites where this record might be? Thank you so much for your help!

You might find the book "Odessa--Genius and Death in the City of Dreams" by Charles King published in 2011 of interest. It has an extensive bibliography.

"That is why the number one rule in genealogy is spelling doesn't count."

That was my number two rule of genealogy when I taught it. Number one was, "This isn't high school, you do what you want, but some things work better than others, so we will learn some of the better ways here."

Hungarian Jewish Women in OBERNHEIDE 1944-5 #hungary #slovakia #holocaust

shaul berger
 

I would like to connect with survivors (and their children) of a group of 500 Hungarian/Slovak jewish women (and 300 jewish women from Lodz). My mother Manci Rachel Aranka Berger (nee Hutter) was part of this group. She arrived with her family to Auschwitz in early June 1944  from Hungary. She and her family were sent by train from Salgotarjan but originally her family lived in Slovakia, south of Rimavska Sobota) . All my family was murdered on arrival and my mother was the only one to survive. The women of this group (most of them 15-30 years old) were sent in late July from Auschwitz to Obernheide (near Bremen) as slave laborers. They did various manual labor tasks such as cleaning up rubble from Bremen streets after Allied air bombings. In early April 1945 they were moved to the Bergen Belsen concentration camp where they were liberated on April 15.

I am trying to learn more about this dark period (I have the book "women of Obernheide"). . My mother told me about that period but I hope you can help me learn more . I understand that Lily Maor z"l was the chairman of the Obernheide comittee and even organized meetings and a trip to Bremen (that my mother participated). I also know about Hedy Brasch and several others. There is also a list of 350 survivors. I would love to get the list.. Do you know how I can get a copy?

Any help will be appreciated. You are welcome to contact me directly by email.

It is not difficult.

Then you can change the language to British Englsh and type your nickname and password.

 

Since about 80% of the world Jewish population lived within the Pale in Russian Empire in the 19th century, and almost every one of you had roots in the Russian Empire, it is surprising that no one  visits Russian-language forums. This is not difficult. I also use Google translate when I can't translate to English.

Re: Latvia Database / Christine Usdin Clarification #latvia #records

Marion Werle
 

Bernard, you are absolutely correct in that the JewishGen "1897 All-Russia Census — Latvia" database does not include all of the household members. The database description makes this clear: "What is in the Database and What is Not - The database concentrates on the head of the family, his spouse and adult children, but does not record the full details of every family unit.  Occasionally there is a record of younger children, but not all siblings are consistently extracted..."
At the time the 1897 data was added to JewishGen, there were financial and time constraints that kept the database from being fully translated. This is why most entries have an archival description that enables the user to find the complete, original record, and, if necessary to have it translated. We have two projects to address this: 1) Integrating Christine's translations for Riga and Dvinsk (her only 1897 census translations) into the database; 2) Correcting the links to point to either FamilySearch or, if not yet filmed by FS, to the new Raduraksti website. In cases where links are missing altogether or incomplete, they will be added. 
We do not currently have either the financial resources or the translators to enable us to add the full household members to the many towns of Latvia outside of the two large cities. There are 46,000 Riga vital records that remain to be translated, records that Christine had not yet translated at the time of her death. Translating these is our highest priority, along with correcting the links to the census and vital records. It would be ideal if we could add the missing household members to our database, but given our resource constraints and the prioritization of other projects, I'm afraid that this will remain a project for the future. We have a limited number of volunteers, and are doing our best to transcribe data and fix broken links. If you would like to volunteer to help us, please contact Paul Cheifitz at pcheifitz@....

Maybe she petitioned in 1924, but did not complete the process at that time?

Have you seen the documentation from both 1924 and 1941?
