GLASNER research #galicia

Harvey Glasner <hsglasner@...>
 

I have just joined the listserve and I am researching Nowy Sacz and
Przemysl.

GLASNER, GRUN, BEER in Nowy Sacz

OSTERREICHER, ESTRAICHER, DINER in Przemysl

My wife and I were in Galicia last July. It was a very interesting and
moving experience. We visited the archives in Nowy Sacz and were
able to make some progress in our GLASNER research thanks to our
guide and especially Jakub >from the Krakow JCC.

The cemeteries in Nowy Sacz and Przemysl gave testimony to
a: the 1000 year history of Jewish settlement in Galicia and Poland
and b: the painful period of W.W. II.

INTRO- Seek STEINMETZ, Breslau & Nikolai and KEILER, Krotoschin #germany

Robert Hutcheon
 

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have been doing non-Jewish genealogy research
for over 20 years (mostly in UK and North America), but I consider
myself to be a relative beginner in doing German Jewish Genealogy research.
I live in Montreal (Quebec province) in Canada. My native language
is English and I also know French. I consider myself intermediate in
using a computer. My experience in using the Internet is intermediate
to advanced.

I am researching the family of Dr. Nick STEINMETZ of Montreal, whose
father Hermann Johannes STEINMETZ was half-Jewish. I have identified
the names and birth and death dates of Nick's Jewish grandfather
(Emil STEINMETZ, born in Breslau in 1885), Emil's parents
(= Nick's great grandparents), Emil's 4 grandparents (= Nick's
great-great-grandparents), and 4 of Emil's 8 great grandparents
(= Nick's 3 great grandparents).

My primary research goals now are: 1) to find collateral STEINMETZ
family members originating in Upper Silesia; and 2) to connect Nick's
KEILER forebears with known KEILER families >from town of Krotoschin
and surrounding parts of Posen province.

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 541695.
The family names and ancestral towns that I have entered in
the JGFF (JewishGen Family Finder) are:
DURRA >from Breslau (Wroclaw). Hulda D. married to Ferdinand STEINMETZ
(b. 1876 in Nikolai), seeking parents, dates, offspring, etc.
HIRSCH >from Breslau (Wroclaw). Gertrud; married to Friedrich STEINMETZ
before 1920, seeking information
KEILER >from Krotoschin (now Krotoszyn, Poland). Bertha b. 1859 in Krotoschin;
parents Siegmund and Johanna (nee KEILER). Seeking connection to other known
KEILERs >from Krotoschin
KEILER >from Breslau. Living there in late 19th century. Seeking information
on extended family
STEINMETZ in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Friedrich and son Helmut emigrated
from Breslau in late 1930s
STEINMETZ >from Breslau. Gustav (wife Bertha KEILER) living there in 1885.
Seek information on extended families.
STEINMETZ >from Pless (now Pszczyn, Poland)
and >from Nikolai (now Mikolow, Poland).

Re: World War I - Lithuania #general

Jules Levin
 

Ann Rabinowitz <arabinow@...> wrote:
Recently, I decided to create a military time line for my ancestral shtetl of
Kupiskis regarding what transpired during World War I. Since many of the Jews
were sent to the east during this time period, it was interesting to see what
was happening in their shtetls whilst they were gone. By happenstance, I found
a site one would not ordinarily associate with military information. It
was "Lithuanian Philately" http://lithuanianphilately.com/postal-history which
listed numerous towns and what transpired there during the war. In addition to
the stamp material or other photos shown, the site discusses the creation of the
postal system at that time.
I believe the postal system of Lithuania would have been created after the war,
when independent Lithuania came into existence. Before that the postal system would
have been either Russian or German occupation mail.

from the other resources I found during my creation of my time line, I noticed
that very often the dates conflict and when preparing a military chronology it
may sometimes be difficult to be exact.
Lithuania as part of Russia would have been using the pre-Gregorian calendar, while
the Germans used the Gregorian. Thus there would always be a discrepancy of dates
depending on whether battle information came >from German or Russian sources.
Russia adopted the Gregorian calendar only after the October Revolution (1917)
which actually took place in November (Gregorian).

This is also particularly true as the battles or conflicts may have stretched over
several days or the fighting may have gone back and forth even over a day's period
In 1981 I was taken through a museum put together by local high school students in
Liepalingis, which displayed artifacts they collected >from the trenches of WW I,
which passed through nearby. Thus there were areas where trench warfare went on
not just over days or weeks, but over months.

Recently, I decided to create a military time line for my ancestral shtetl of
Kupiskis regarding what transpired during World War I. Since many of the Jews
were sent to the east during this time period, it was interesting to see what
was happening in their shtetls whilst they were gone. By happenstance, I found
a site one would not ordinarily associate with military information. It
was "Lithuanian Philately" http://lithuanianphilately.com/postal-history which
listed numerous towns and what transpired there during the war. In addition to
the stamp material or other photos shown, the site discusses the creation of the
postal system at that time.
I believe the postal system of Lithuania would have been created after the war,
when independent Lithuania came into existence. Before that the postal system would
have been either Russian or German occupation mail.

from the other resources I found during my creation of my time line, I noticed

Hi Robert,

Have you tried looking at the registers of the Jews Temporary Shelter, which was
based in the Stepney area? Contact details will be available via Google. Just a
chance they might have stayed there for a few days.

Happy hunting

They had only been allowed to leave Vienna with seventeen shillings, so finances
would have been very tight. I'm wondering if they had to pay for accommodation;
or if a refugee organisation in Britain might have financed it.
