Holocaust research question: What is the "German M14 Author?" #general

Gary Lelonek <goodbachur@...>
 

Hi Genners,

I have been researching my grandfather's holocaust experiences. I am
grateful to the Genner community, which has been integral to my research.

On a displace persons registry form my grandfather's brother-in-law
recorded the following as the sequence of events that happened to them as
they fled Nazi occupied Poland;

"He was living in Sierpc-Poland until 1939. German M14 Author sent him and
his present wife (married in 1945. March) to Ghetto (Warshau) in 1939,
where they lived for 4 months. Then they escaped >from Ghetto and lived with
farmers in the country of Warshau-Poland till November 1946. As persecutors
for the reason of race, they escaped to Germany in November 1946."

I have been trying to find the "German M14 author" without any results. I
know that the Jews of Sierpc were explode >from Sierpc on November 8, 1939.

My question has 2 parts:

1. What is the M14 Author?

2. Is there a database or book that would have the individual edicts that
the Germans enacted even in individual shtels? like when individual shtels
had laws regarding the yellow star.

Thank you,

Gary Lelonek

Returning Russian passports? #general

joyweave
 

Some time ago, I received information >from a private researcher in
Belarus about the information on a Russian passport which may have been
issued to my grandfather's brother. The date was 1906.

The researcher told me that people who emigrated were required to return
their passports via the Russian Embassy in their new country of
residence and that this was such a passport.

Can anyone tell me more about that process? Would it mean that the
immigrant had become a citizen of his new country (in this case the
U.S.)? Would it mean that the passport was returned when it expired?
Was this even true?

Rabbi Mordechai Leib SOLOVEITCHIK -Karlin 19th cent. #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I have read that Rabbi Shmuel Avigdor RABINOWITZ (a.k.a. Tana
Tosfaa"h) of Karlin (d. 1866) had a son-in-law R' Mordechai Leib
SOLOVEITCHIK (also a Rabbi in Karlin). I've tried to look up details
regarding this Rabbi on FTJP and other sources. I presume he is a
member of the famous Rabbinical SOLOVEITCHIK family. Does anyone have
family details of the above Mordechai Leib?

TIA

ViewMate: Photo ID and German translation #general

Jenny Brown
 

I've posted a photo on Viewmate that I'd love help with a short
German translation and a photo identification.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM28331

My great-grandfather Simon Leader, originally of Kobryn, Belarus,
immigrated to the U.S. but traveled back to Europe a great deal
(in the U.S., he lived in the South: Chiplee, Florida; Birmingham,
Alabama; Memphis, Tennessee). He's the third >from the right in the
front row.

This photo has a sign on it reading "65 Wagners Nachfeckert Karlsbad
25.7.1932"

Does anyone know what this is? I'm assuming it's Karlsbad, Germany,
but I don't know what the other words signify or what this group
might be. Very curious what the occasion or organization is!

You can respond right on the form on the ViewMate page.

Thank you!!

Dear Friends,

As many of you know, the IAJGS recognized the KehilaLinks project
for its "outstanding contribution to Jewish Genealogy" at the just
completed conference in Boston. We are incredibly pleased that the
project has been acknowledged, as we have considered it to be an
incredibly useful resource since its inception in 1996.

But we must also take a moment to formally acknowledge Susana
Leistner Bloch and Barbara Ellman, the leaders of the KehilaLinks
project.

It is safe to say that the KehilaLinks project would be
unrecognizable in its current form, without the countless hours of
hard work, planning, brainstorming, and simple devotion that Susana
and Barbara display on a constant basis.

As anyone who has worked with them knows, they are constantly
available to answer questions, and will do their best to help people
be successful in their Jewish genealogical research. For this reason,
we view this award not only as a "JewishGen award" but as a well
deserved honor for two of our most important volunteers, Susana and
Barbara.

Please join us in congratulating Susana and Barbara by leaving your
congratulatory comments on our facebook page by visiting:

Your comments will surely be appreciated.

Joseph Samuels Descendants #poland #lodz

Arlene Beare
 

I am looking for the Descendants of Joseph Samuels who was the brother of my
grandfather Benjamin Samuels. Joseph was married to Dora Dembinski and they
lived in Whitechapel. They had 11 children-Rose b 1883, Ada b1885, Susan b
1886, Sarah b 1888, Israel b 1980, Annie b 1892, Eva b 1893, Lewis b 1894,
Abraham b 1895, Philip b 1899 and Rebecca b 1903. All the children were
born in England.

Joseph gave his place of origin as Iochlin in the 1891 UK census. I do not
know where this place is but someone has suggested it may be Zychlin. It has
been written as Jochlin as well. Staying with the Samuels family were an
Isaac and Susah (or could be Susan as writing unclear) Rose. She was also
from Iochlin and Isaac was >from Oserkoff which I am sure is Ozerkow. This
creates a difficulty for Ozerkow is North of Lodz and not Galicia . If one
assumes that this place Iochlin is not far >from Ozerkow then where then is
Iochlin. Was Joseph born somewhere else as he was older and did the family
move?? In subsequent Censuses Joseph is listed as >from Russia.

Benjamin gave Krakow Austria as his place of origin when he entered Ellis
Island. In the 1891 census Benjamin gave Austria as his place of origin so
that would seem to confirm that Galicia was his place of origin. In the
1920 US census he said he was >from Poland.

If anyone can help with finding the Samuels descendants I would be very
grateful. I am really stuck. The name may have been Samulovitz or Zimmels I
really have no idea. Alexander Beider told me that Samuels was not a common
name in Galicia.
