still requesting translation of this Polish postcard #lodz #poland

Hello All,

I’ve again reposted this postcard written in Polish, still hoping for as
complete a translation as possible:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=28380

The photograph on the other side (which I haven’t yet posted) is of
Roza/Ruchla (born Seligman) Frenkel with her husband Joseph Frankel and
their cousin, my great-aunt Helena (born Grinbaum) Szczecinska/Van Felix.

I am also looking for any other information anyone might have about
these people and/or their descendents. So, in case the names sound
familiar to anybody, I offer a few more family facts: Roza’s mother was
Felicia Fajga (born Fuks) Seligman. Felicia was a sister of my
great-grandmother Balbina/Blime (born Fuks) Grinbaum. Balbina was the
mother of Helena in the photo, of my grandmother Mary/Malka (born
Grinbaum) Van Felix, and several other siblings.

I thank you all in advance for any and all help offered,

Sincerely,
Diane Sophrin

LIKHTMAKHER SISTERS FROM VILNA #lithuania

Brentsi
 

Dear all,
We are several "cousins" living in Israel,England,Canada and the US,whose
grandmothers or grandfathers were siblings.
The family named Lightman,originally Likhtmakher originated in Vilna. Many
lived and died in Leeds,Yorkshire.
In 2007 we received material including vital records >from the archives in
Vilnius but information about two other sisters was missing.
Last week, I discovered on the Litvak database, facts which were not
previously listed concerning the "missing "sisters.

Gnendel Likhtmakher (37) married Itzko Kuritskes(45)in 1898(second marriage
for both)
Dveira Likhtmakher (22) married Itsko Soloveichik (27) in 1899. All the
families >from Vilna.

On the Yad Vashem database I found the name, Dveira Soloveicik in the list
of murdered Jews >from Vilna 1941-1944.

I am now in the process of searching for any further information, possible
siblings and families with the above names originating >from Vilnius.

Sincerely,
Brenda Habshush (Bernstein/Burns).Israel.

Macse.org website #hungary

Hello -

About 3 weeks ago, I bought a year's membership to access the macse.org site. It
allowed searching of Budapest birth/marriage/death/name change records over the
past century and was quite a wonderful site. Last week, my browser said it could
not find the site. I assumed that perhaps there was some maintenance being done,
but when I've tried again since, there is no longer such a site. I also went to
my Inbox and pulled up Bela Hatvany's e-mail, as we had corresponded a bit when
arranging my purchase. I wrote to him, yet the e-mail bounced back.

Does anyone know the status of this resource or of Dr. Hatvany?

Many thanks.

Seek Wilhelm SCHLIESSLER - Mosbach to USA 1902 #germany

Anne Persky <md826@...>
 

Hello,
I have written once before trying to trace relatives of my Grandfather,
William (Wilhelm) SCHLIESSLER. He was born in 1874 in Mosbach, Germany.
He immigrated to the U.S. in 1902.

I understand that there are several people living in Germany with the last
name of SCHLIESSLER. I will be in Germany for 2 months >from September
through October. Can anyone advise me how would be the best way to go
about contacting these people to see if they are, in fact, related?

Inasmuch as I know very little about my Grandfather, I am not sure if
he was Jewish. Would this be a problem?

Any assistance you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you. Anne Persky, San Antonio, TX md826@yahoo.com

Hello-
information about WWII German Soldier are kept by the
"Wehrmachtsauskunftsstelle":
http://http://www.dd-wast.de

The Prussian Military Archives are lost in a british air raid to Potsdam
in April 1945. Because of this, there are no Prussian military records
for WWI.

Information about military losses (soldier killed in action, injured, missing
in action, in captivity) were published during WWI in the so called
"Verlustlisten". These "Lists of losses" are actually being transformed
into a database. 1914-1916 are completed, 1917-1919 still in work.

You can access the database at:
http://java.genealogy.net/eingabe-verlustlisten/search

Actually: 7 LAMM >from Erfurt, but not Bruno Jacob. 2 Bruno LAMM but not
from Erfurt. You must wait ...
The German Military Archives (www.bundesarchiv.de) keep parts of the
military hospital records. But these records are very difficult to use
because there are no registers, for all I know.

the birth records of the Standesamt are very reliable. If the documents

Sally was a common Jewish male name in the 19th century (< Salomon).
