Request Help in Identifying "Mystery Woman." #austria-czech

Madeleine Isenberg
 

Hello All,

I already subscribe to Gesher Galicia and H-SIG, but this is my first
e-mail to you folks, because members of my family also worked and/or
lived in what is now Ostrava.

I have just posted a photo on VIewmate:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM26794

That shows a man and a woman. The man was related to me through
marriage, and his name was Leo Seifter. He was a violinist and
accompanied his brother Adolph "Dolek" Seifter, who played the piano.
They composed and played musical hits of the day in Ostrava. They had
a sister as well, Hilda. Eventually they all wound up in San
Francisco, CA.

I'm trying to identify the mystery woman who could have been someone
who may have lived in Ostrava; might have lived in Poland after the
Germans invaded ostrava; or even survived WW II and was in the USA.
There is no way for me to pinpoint place or time, BUT perhaps someone
may recognize her and help solve the mystery.

Regards,

Madeleine Isenberg
Beverly Hills, CA

RESEARCHING:
GOLDMAN in parts of Galicia such as: Nowy Targ, Wachsmund, possibly
Krakow, Poland, who migrated into Kezmarok or Straszky/Nagy Eor/Nehre,
both now in Slovakia.
Also family names of STEINER, LANGER, GLUECKSMAN, who married into the
GOLDMAN family, and also lived in Slovakia.
GOLDSTEIN in Abaujszina (Sena), and Kosice, Slovakia; Tolcsva,
Hungary; Temeswar (very briefly!), Romania
Some members of the GOLDSTEIN, GOLDMAN, and ZOLLMAN families also
lived in Ostrava.

The popular researcher I have used in the past for work in the Minsk

surnames on tombstones #general

Avigdor Ben-Dov <avigdorbd@...>
 

While indexing a cemetery in Israel I found the name Meir in large
letters on the headstone, but the bedstone reads Chanan Meir. In
Hebrew, some names are male or female and this can lead to confusion
without reference to the father or mother as generally given (ben or
bat--son or daughter, respectively). This is not as difficult as given
names used for surnames. Even English and American names have blurred
the distinction such as Simon Paul and Paul Simon.
Usually I find the given name on the headstone, viz. Chanele (Chana),
or Kobi (Yaakov). Is there some standard or tradition that suggests
the headstone is the given name? If not, since both Meir and Chanan
could be given names, don't I need a document such as a death
certificate (if one is available) to verify this data? What other
sources might establish the true surname?

the Holocaust Monument or Wall of Names wherever it may be and take a

Hi,
In response to the trip to Ukraine. We are doing this exact trip in
May. we are taking the river cruise and have hired a guide to take us
to Uman and Pogrebishche. These are the towns where our families came
from. I would like any information or hints anyone has on how we can
locate more precise information about families etc. Otherwise we will
be walking in their footsteps.
I will be happy to share this information with anyone when we return.
I would not want to recommend a guide before trying them.
Please contact me privately with your e-mail
and I will remember to send the report and pictures to you.

Dr Nathan ROOS - Passports - France - December 1939 #france

Joan Adler <jadfam21@...>
 

Dr. Nathan ROOS and his wife Luise Weiss ROOS had passports that would
enable them to leave France by December 2, 1939, the expiration date.
They were German citizens forced to leave their home in Pforzheim,
Germany in February of that year.

We know that Nathan ROOS was interred at Athis near Flers in France
from October through the end of November, possibly early December. He
wrote to his wife asking her to get their passports and visas renewed
so that they were not stuck in France forever once the passports
expired on Dec. 2..

They sailed for the US on the ship DeGrasse >from LeHavre on December
23, arriving in New York January 8, 1940.

I don't know if they had French or German passports.

I would like to know how they could have gotten their passports
renewed. Where to find copies of them. Where to find copies of their
visas - which also expired before they left Europe.
Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hello David,,

Have you tried to write to the municipal archives of Annecy?
I have an excellent experience with Le havre municipal archives.
I guess it will be preferable to write them in French for a more
effective help.

Good luck,

Re: wedding announcement #lodz #poland

In Lodz archives (not the main building), there is a book >from the
Jewish community that lists all birth, marriages, and deaths in the
order in which they happened. It is not indexed, so it is only
accessible if you know the date. You would have to hire a researcher to
search through all the marriage records of the 30s.

You can also have someone search the Books of Residents (Ksiegi Ludnosci
& Ksiegi Kontroli Ruchu Ludnosci). If you find the household, the
marriage date of the inhabitants would be noted.
