Searching TEICHER, CLORER from Karlsruhe #general

Karen Westerlaken <karen.westerlaken@...>
 

Hi my name is Karen. Ive been trying to find my family history and
have hit a dead end and don't know where to look next.

The information I have is my grand mothers (Matilda) fathers name was
Pinkas TEICHER. He was born in Kolomea / Galicia (Austria-Hungary,
now Poland) in 1889. He Married Karoline Wilhelmine CLORER (born
Mannheim) around 1915. They lived in a place called Karlshrue.

I have a basic knowledge of what happened to them, but I cant seem to
go back any further. I would appreciate any help with how to find out
who Pinkas parents were and Karolines parents were.

Thank you.

Steve Cooper asked about British naturalization info.

Although I don't have an answer to his specific question, I suggest
this website:

http://www.movinghere.org.uk/search/default.asp

You can search by person's name, or by town.

They do seem to have a lot on people who came to Britain during the
WWII timeframe.

There is often little or no connection between the original name and
the one chosen in the U.S.

Both my gm's were Chana. One used the name Anna, the other Helen.
My ggm Krasle called herself Rose.

One interesting way to see a list of people with a particular first
name is to use the EIDB portal at www.stevemorse.org You can search
by first name only. I found 5 hits for the first name Elster, but
none for Gnesze.

Yizkor Book Project, January 2013 #latinamerica

bounce-2555218-772964@...
 

Shalom,

With the first month of 2013 passed (where did it evaporate to? <g>), I have
an optimistic feeling that the Yizkor Book Project can look forward to a
great deal of activity over this year and beyond.

First signs of this, apart >from a respectable quantity of new books, new
entries and updates in January, is the fact that three new Translation Funds
were set up last month and more are brewing. The projects that were added in
January:

- Akkerman (Bilhorod-Dnistrovs'kyy), Ukraine Yizkor Book
- Klobuck, Poland Yizkor Book
- Wyszkow, Poland Yizkor Book

These join the 60 odd Translation Funds currently running. These funds have
been set up to allow those people interested in seeing Yizkor Books
translated, to help out with donations going towards the professional
translation of these books. The Yizkor Books do contain a wealth of
information about the communities and people that were wiped >from the face
of the earth during the Holocaust and making this information freely
available in English and other languages is what the Yizkor Book Project is
all about.

If you feel able to contribute something towards this lofty goal, please go
to the following page to see the list of Translation Fund projects.
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
Note that for those of you who are US citizens, donations to these funds are
also tax-deductible.

A further encouraging sign is the fact that the Yizkor-Books-In-Print
project is celebrating having sold its 500th book since starting publication
in April 2012. In the past month alone, 82 books have been sold which is
very promising news. Also this month the translation of the Dzialoszyce
Memorial Book was issued and there are ten more books currently in the
works. If you would like to know more about this project, please go to
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html

Finally, I am encouraged by the fact that several books are rapidly
approaching that sort-after goal of being completed translated. Hopefully,
in the months to come I will be able to announce the completion of quite a
number of books.

Now to facts and figures for January, during this last month we have added
these 4 new projects:

- Pustkow, Poland (Pustkow - The Almost Forgotten Death Camp)

to find them. Also remember that if you have queries, questions or whims
about anything regarding the Yizkor Book Project, I'd be more than happy to
hear >from you.

All the best,
