Davis/Glaser Family NYC-Brooklyn etc #general

Cindy Taylor
 

Genners,

Attempting to find one Sheila GLASER born NYC 1936. In the 1940
census her parents are misspelled as Ruth (nee DAVIS) and Hyman
GLANER, yet her name is correct! The grandmother was Jennie Davis.
My guess is that many of the GLANER (S) you see in census sheets are
really GLASER or GLAZER. Address at the time was 38 South 5th NYC.

I don't have a married name but I'm hoping someone will recognize her
maiden name.

Thank you in advance for any assistance or advice.

Leipzig Jewish cemetery [missing grave stones] #germany

Judith Elam
 

There are about 70 missing gravestones in the children's section at
Leipzig Jewish cemetery. My little uncle's stone is one of them.
He died in June 1933 age six. The Jewish community has the grave
location, but we cannot find the grave without the stone, as they
don't know where the rows are either.

Does anyone know definitely what happened to these missing stones?
This section was not bombed.

Please do not respond with speculative answers, such as "stolen by
the locals after the war", unless you know for a fact this is correct.

Both myself and the Leipzig Jewish community would love to know why
these stones are missing.

Researching BLUMBERGs from New York and Germany #general

jjthomas33@...
 

To the members of the JewishGen Discussion Board,
To start off, Hello everyone and Thank You for accepting me into
the discussion group last week!

I am a newcomer to ancestry/genealogy research, having started just
about a year ago (aside >from any family tree projects I did back in
high school). I do have an account on Ancestry.com as a tool to help
me as well.

Now let me cut to the chase,

I am looking into finding out more about the BLUMBERGs that lived in
New York, and immigrated >from Germany (probably >from the Munich/
Munchen area) They are >from my father's side (on his father's side).
Neither I nor he have much information on them, so here's the little
information that I have and what I have found so far on Ancestry:

Anna BLUMBERG (my great grandmother)- Born May 1890 in New York, had 3
brothers and 2-3 sisters; may have also gone by names of Hannah or
Annie. Married a James N. Thomas (the N maybe Nelson,but not sure);
Together had 11 children, one of which my paternal grandfather (my
father's father), Gerard Joseph Thomas. Lived mostly out on Long
Island, NY (mostly around the Hempstead and Mineola areas).

Anna's parents are:

Joseph BLUMBERG (my 2nd great grandfather)- Born June 1866 in Germany
(don't know where in Germany). Immigrated to America around 1882 (not
sure). Lived mostly in Queens, but then out on Long Island in later
years. Unknown death year.

Mary (maiden name unknown; my 2nd great grandmother)- Born 1862 in
Germany (don't know where in Germany) Unknown immigration year to
America. Unknown death year.

Together, they had 7 children (Anna being one of them).

If anyone has anymore information, or might be related to these
people, I would love to know more about them. Please do contact me.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

ViewMate Interpreting Request-French and German #general

Jean Warwick
 

Hi All
I requested information >from the International Tracing Service (ITS)
collection held by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, which
yielded 10 pages >from two Drancy [France] transports for which Jacob Adler's
name appear.

The lists indicate he was deported >from Drancy on July 19, 1942 to Auschwitz
[This is backed up by the French Death Record I posted on ViewMate
previously].
I wonder if anyone can assist me in interpreting what the other documents
are and what they are telling me?

They have been written in both French and German and seem to be >from various
sources, I can roughly translate some of the text but am having difficulty
getting a clear picture of what they are, where they are >from and what their
significance is.

Any assistance would be gratefully received. I have posted them on ViewMate

The only definitive evidence that a person was born Jewish is that
that person's parents were married "according to the rites of the
Jewish religion".

[In the opinion of this writer - Moderator]

Old Testament Christian names (such as Hebron or Abra(ha)m) were very
popular >from the 17th to 19th centuries among Low Church Christians -
Methodists, Baptists, Quakers etc.
They were chosen as a way of distancing themselves >from Catholics, who
always favoured saints' names for their children.
Unless you have further evidence pointing to Jewish origin of any of
these families, the balance of probablility is that they were Low
Church.
Having said that, the Jewish community of Ohio goes back to 1817, and
by 1878 there were major communities in Cincinnati (8,000) and
Cleveland (3,300).
