Dear all,

Please note that the Halberstadt family registers and vital records
mentioned by Joelle Meyer are part of a current GerSIG indexing project.
Please contact me or Renee Klisch [ museumcurator40@... ] if you'd
like to participate in this effort. We are currently focusing on the
vital records in the 36 Gatermann films >from the former East Germany
that familysearch.org has put on line. (24 more are unavailable because
of privacy constraints.)

Also, familysearch.org's services are always free to those who get
themselves a user ID and password. Or, if you will, the free trial lasts
forever!

Does anyone know on which streets most of the Jewish family were living to
facilitate my research as the books are by streets and there are at least 40
of them..
There is also a mine of information (all the family registers 1762-1794-1800
and birth/wedding/death certificates >from 1761 till 1874 which allowed me to
make a lot of progress in discovering ancestors.

Dear Joelle
According to https://tinyurl.com/y3p78wth, the Jews of Halberstadt mostly
lived on the following streets, close to the main synagogue in the west of
the town:

Judenstrasse
Bakenstrasse
Im Seidenbeutel
and Im Rosenwinkel.

The main synagogue (built 1710-12) was in the Bakenstrasse; there was a
smaller one (the "Klaussynagoge") on Im Rosenwinkel.

LitvakSIG Luncheon at the IAJGS Conference in Cleveland #lithuania

Barry Halpern
 

If you're attending the IAJGS Conference in Cleveland, don't miss the
annual LitvakSIG luncheon! You need to purchase a ticket through the
conference website (if you're already registered for the Conference).

Our original guest speaker, Mr. Agurkis >from the Lithuanian Central
State Archives, has had to cancel due to health issues. However, we
are very fortunate to have with us Mr. Elliot Matz, who will be
speaking about an exciting new project in Rumsiskes, Lithuania (about
half-way between Vilnius and Kaunas), a major expansion of the
existing open-air museum there. The current museum was constructed
under Soviet rule, with only minor updates since. Plans for the
expansion involve a more realistic presentation of Jewish history and
involvement in Lithuanian and Eastern European communities. This also
includes archaeological exploration led by Dr. Richard Freund during
July, 2019. Dr. Freund is well-known for work that includes the
excavation work for the Great Synagogue of Vilnius.

Elliot Matz retired in 2017 as Executive Vice President and Chief
Operating Officer of the not-for-profit Brooklyn Navy Yard Development
Corporation, a job-creator for New York City. Prior to that role, he
served in several senior executive roles related to real estate
property management, and has published several articles and book
chapters on corporate real estate strategy. He now serves on the
boards for two non-profits, including the Baltic American Chamber of
Commerce, whose mission is to promote business activity between the
Baltic States and the United States. He is also working on a major
expansion of the Open-Air Museum of Lithuania at Rumsiskes. He earned
a bachelor's degree in architecture, and a masters degree in business
administration. On the personal side, Mr. Matz has been his own
family's genealogist and historian, including the production of an
extensive family tree and Matz history. This has included research in
Lithuania, Canada, England, Israel and Argentina.

Leopold KRAUS and his Daughter Camille in Port Said #poland

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Siggers,

I am trying to find out details about Leopold KRAUS who got a Legion

of Honor medal >from Emperor Franz Jozef in 1849. His daughter Camille
married Salomon ARZT in Port Said Egypt who originated from
Jaroslaw, Galicia. Camille died at child birth at the end of 1890s
/beginning of 1900s in Port Said . I have no idea whether Leopold
lived in Austria itself or in Galicia. Many siblings of Salomon ARZT
lived in Port Said where his brother Simon established the famous
Simon Arzt department store.

Thanks in advance

ViewMate #73996 translation death record #hungary

Margarita Lacko
 

I have posted the death record of my great-grandfather Marton FISCHER, born
1844 in Gyongyosoroszi, Hungary.

Looks like the person who reported his death is HANOVER Mor. Does it say if
he is a relative? What is his address? What is Marton's occupation? Was his
father a "grocer"? What did he die of? What does the note say at the
bottom?

I would greatly appreciate a translation of this record.

It is on ViewMate #73996

Dear H-siggers,

I have posted an index card of the burial of SZEMZO Sandorne. Her birth name
should be LOW Szerena. What was her occupation? I would also appreciate a
translation of the last two lines.

Dear H-siggers,

I have posted a telegram sent >from "Praha" to Mar del Plata (Buenos Aires,
Argentina) on 27 October 1945 addressed to my great-uncle Guillermo REICHT
(last name should be LEICHT).

I recognize most of the family names ? they are survivors of work camps and
concentration camps. This branch of my family lived in south Slovakia
(Somorja & Dunaszerdahely then in Hungary) and Gyor & Budapest. Why would
someone have sent the telegram >from Prague?

Unfortunately the telegram is not signed (Sin Firma) but the address
(erzebet krt 19) is where my REISZ relatives lived. I imagine that the wrong
spelling in a few names (rozi, reis, erzebet) might have been to minimize
letters and save some money.

I would greatly appreciate a translation of the two words after ?Telegramm?
(I don?t think these are names). And what do ?z? and ?v? mean?
