GROSSBARD, BINDER, REBITZER/RIES, HALPERN, MINSKY - Vienna or NYC #austria-czech

Joseph Lonstein
 

In 1939, a SPERBER relative born in Sieniawa, Galicia and living in Vienna
listed on a concentration camp document that a Fanny GROSSBARD was his closest
relative in Vienna. Through the usual databases I found that this woman was Fanny
KUPFERSTEIN recte BINDER (b. 1892, d. 1943 Auschwitz) married
in Vienna to Adolf GROSSBARD (b. 1889, d. 1935 Vienna).

Their daughter was a Herta GROSSBARD (1918-1982) who came to the States in
1939 and married Hugo REBITZER (aka RIES) in Alabama, and the couple very soon
thereafter lived in NYC and later Haworth and North Bergen, New Jersey.
When coming to the States, Herta GROSSBARD listed a Jennie HALPERN in
Brooklyn as her aunt. In the 1940 U.S. census I found at the exact address on
Herta's manifest a Jennie HALPERN (b. 1884), likely the widow of Julius HALPERN
with children Isadore HALPERN (b. 1908; a school teacher), George
HALPERN (b. 1918; also a schoolteacher), and Bessie (b. 1909, married MINSKY).

Anything ring a bell?

Response from Austrian General Counsel Regarding Status of Austria Granting Citizenship to Austrian Holocaust Victims #austria-czech

Jan Meisels Allen
 

As previously posted, I wrote the current Austrian Counsel General located
in the Austrian Embassy in Washington D.C. I received a reply, stating that
"unfortunately there have not been any new developments regarding the
proposed amendment to the Austrian citizenship law." The Counsel General has
taken my enquiry as "an opportunity to reach out to the Austrian Foreign
Ministry to request an update. "Once she hears them she will reach out to
me.

Until then, no further contact will be made by me to the Counsel General or
the Embassy. When I learn anything further, I will post it on the
Austria-Czech SIG.

I'm English but my father was Austrian when I was born. I'm in the process
of applying in England. I've got my documents apostilled and about to make
an appointment at the Embassy in London. Then I will have a long wait.

I'll keep the forum updated with my progress.

Archives in Ukraine #ukraine

Jorge Sexer <jas2608@...>
 

Hello,

I am planning a visit to Ukraine, mainly Lviv, Khmelnitsky, and Kamenetz. 

Is it worth the effort to make some research in the archives there, or is everything already digitalized and available on Jewishgen? 

My ancestors left the Ukraine in 1889, to settle in Argentina.

I understand some Russian and I read it well.

Thank you so much !

ViewMate Translation Request - Russian Revision List #general

Hi everyone,

I found an 1816 record for a Ginach PEKAR >from Radomyshl, Ukraine. The
record is a revision list, the Russian Empire equivalent of a census.
I posted it on ViewMate, and I would really appreciate it if someone
could translate the record for me. Ginach and his family are at the
bottom of the image. The record can be found here:

ViewMate translation request - Polish #general

Alex Girshovich
 

Dear Group,

I am seeking for help in translating the heading of the 1795 census
page of Turets, Novogrudok County, Belarus. Apparently it was a
Lithuanian province at that time.
The census was conducted in the year of the Russian annexation of this
area >from Poland (aka the 3rd division of Poland), and it was done in
Polish.
I hope that this translation will help me to understand better the
context of this place.
