Descendants of David Alpert (died ~1929) from Harrisburg, Pa. #lithuania

Ziegelman <zieg_exp@...>
 

I am searching for descendants of David Alpert (died ~1929) in Harrisburg,
Pa. He is a brother of my paternal grandmother, Celia (Simcha) nee
Alperovich Alpert (~1885-1972) who was born in Kurenets, Belarus and grew
up in nearby Vileika. In the US, Celia married Barnett (Dov Ber/Boris)
Alpert, who was >from Postawy, and whose father was also >from Kurenets.
Please contact me privately: andi@ziegelman.co.il. Thanks!

For all Alperts who don't yet know it, Alperovich is the Old Country surname
of most Alperts, and nearly all Alperoviches originated in Kurenets,
Belarus. The original surname of the Alperoviches of Kurenets was Halpern.
The Alperoviches are a branch of the illustrious rabbinical Halpern family
that descends >from Rashi via R. Elchanan Ha-kadosh son of R. Isaac of
Dampierre (called "the RI"). The first man named "proto" Alperovich was the
first Jewish settler in Kurenets who arrived there (probably form Poland) in
about 1700, to deal in lumber. His name was Abram.

Benny Balbierer - grave found at last!! #galicia

Shosh Balbirer <sar651e24@...>
 

Hi everybody. I have exciting news! Today a member of this forum who
was in touch with me >from the start wrote and called me to tell me the
great news! His investigative tactics paid off!

Benny died in 1958 and is buried in Long Island - Beth Moses Cemetery.
Go figure!

I have contacted the cemetery and was told that I can send them $5 for a
picture of the grave and that is exactly what I'll do, also for Bella.

I am soooo excited!

Thanks a bunch to all of you and especially to the person who found him,
you know who you are....

Re: Vital Records from Chrzanow #galicia

Brian Lehman asked about researching family >from Chrzanow, Galicia...
Would anyone know if vital records exist and where are they kept?
Maybe an index?

Brian... start with the RTR Foundation to find out what vital records
exist... go to http://www.rtrfoundation.org/results.php and put in
Chrzanow...there are many records in many archives.

I would also look at the JewishGen Community Page for Chrzanow at
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~community~-497247
and follow all the links...

If you decide to hire a researcher, try JewishGen's researcher infofile at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Infofiles/researchers.htm

And lastly, try connecting with other researchers who might have similar
research requirements via JGFF or the discussion group archives...

Re: Bad Windsheim DP Camp #germany

mark@...
 

Am posting this to the group - rather than a personal reply in case others
may be interested in my response

My grandparents (Mr & Mrs Mauritz LEHMAN) lived in Bad Windsheim before
moving to Rothenburg.[Sadly in 1938 they were forced to move to Feurth
before being deported and killed by the Poles in 1942)

A Helmutt Hoffman wrote an amazing book about the Jews of Bad Windsheim
"Die Juden in Windsheim nach 1871". He describes in some detail the family
trees of some 30 families who lived in Windsheim going back till the late
1700's. The second part of the book is a very graphic description of the
arrival of the Nazis ,and the deportations with many official documents
from the time.
There are pages of narrative and photos on pp 398-407 about the Yeshiva
under the section UNRRA-Lager, Vaad hatzala. This seemed to be populated
by DP's >from the camps and the book mentions many specific names and
references.

It is written in German but I would happy to help you with
translation of important pages.

Helmut is still alive and lives in Windsheim but is a little fragile. He
would be delighted to speak to anyone about his work although he only
speaks German.

Let me know if you want more information

Finally, you mention you are looking for information about FARNTROG from
Feurth. I have information and some photos about the following
FARNTROG's in a book Zum Gedenken Vopn Den Nazis Eermortden Further
Juden 1933-1945.

Betti Bilha 1920-?

Edith Rosalie 1922-1942
Emmy Esther 1925-1943)

Shalom, Susan,

The recently-issued first four volumes of the US Holocaust Museum's
"Encyclopedia of Camps and Ghettos, 1933-1945" do not appear to mention this
sub-camp. D-91438 Bad Windsheim is located some 50 km. almost straight W of
the centre of Nurnberg (umlaut on the "u") and some 48 km. SE of the centre
of Wurzburg (umlaut on the "u").

Looking for family events in London England part 2 #general

Ruth Burkholder <ruth.burk@...>
 

Thank you to those who have replied to my first message ... I probably should say
that I have done quite a bit of internet searching in the usual places, and am
wondering if there are special databases, or exemptions >from reporting BMDs ...

And how does one determine which cemetery might have been used?

The "first child" of the 1911 census -- Sophie -- is the one we are following. Her
family story is that her mother died when she was about 12 and so she left school -
by [either her or her father] saying she was of school leaving age - so she could
look after the others. Her daughter says that she lied so often about her age that
she did not really know how old she was in later life. If Sophie is supposed to be
15 in the 1911 census ... and she left the Berner St. school in 1907, is that when
her mother died? and did Nathan marry Rebecca before that 1911 census?

The convolutions in the family stories I have heard would not have me surprised to
hear that Nathan Samuels is a 2nd husband to Rebecca and that the boys of the 1901
census are >from her first husband.

How do you find when Nathan, Rebecca, Sophie, Sarah etc. arrived in Britain >from
the continent ... >from whatever country they were born?

Vital records from Chrzanow? #galicia

Hello,

I am working on researching my family >from Chrzanow, Galicia. Not the
Chrzanow near Lublin.

My ancestor Schaul Schneider came >from Chrzanow in 1885 with his wife
Scheinel and daughter Elke. They were born in the 1850s.

Would anyone know if vital records exist and where are they kept? Maybe
an index?

As Schneider is a common name, I didn't have much luck at JRI.

I would appreciate any assistance offered.

Thank you and take care,
