Avraham MOSES - Rzeszow to Berlin 1890's #general

Joan
 

I am looking for information about the MOSES family:

father Abraham Hirsch (1862-1930), wife Henne (Helene) BOTH (1870-),
children Regina (bef 1894- abt 1930),Isak ( 1894-1948), Esther Ruchel (Erna)
(1894-Holocaust), Josef (aft 1894-Holocaust), Chaja Fredel (1890-) and Rebeka
(1899-) who moved >from Rzeszow to Jaraslaw where Rebeka was born in 1899 and then
to Berlin sometime after that.

I am wondering why such a large fmaily would move to a place where they had no
ties. Were there pogroms, or catastrophic diseases at the turn of the century?

Perhps someone reading this message is related ot the family. I've checked the
Family Finder.

Any information would be appreciated.

ViewMate 11405 - Request for Identification #poland

Joyce Eastman
 

I am reposting a portrait of my paternal grandparents' family taken in
Vienna, Austria cerca early 1930's: My grandparents: Sime Bruche WILDER
(Helfer), Salomon Wolf WILDER, and their children: Itamar and Rebecca/Regina
WILDER, as well as two women on the left side of the family portrait whom I
am seeking to identify. I believe that these two women might possibly be
mother and daughter - and possibly related to my grandmother. My
grandfather died at age 54 >from tuberculosis, and therefore looks much older
than his years. I believe that this family portrait was probably taken
shortly before his death in 1934.

The picture is posted on JewishGen as ViewMate #11405. Any assistance you
can offer to identify these two women would be most appreciated. Please
respond privately.

Re: Travel From Russia to Scotland in 1903 #general

Hi Shelda,

As far as I am aware the UK did not keep records of immigrants in the early 20th
or late 19th century. I have, myself, tried to find such records for London
arrivals, checking places such as HM Customs & Excise, the Port of London
Authority, the British Archives, etc but none seem to have any such records.
However, with places such as Hull and Glasgow, you might have better luck.

Happy hunting

Can anyone read the handwriting on this 1910 Census Rec? #general

Deborah Scheimer <debscheim@...>
 

I'm having trouble reading information for William & Esther Watzman on lines 65 &
66 of this page. I'm specifically interested in the "Nativity Information" (Colums
12-14): birthplace of themselves and each of their parents. I also can't read
William's occupation in Column 19.

If you have trouble reading it as I am, then the family directly above theirs
(Finkelstein on lines 59 & 60) might be relatives and therefore the same info for
the Nativity Info.

The link to the census page is:

[UK} New Model For Running Archive and Library Service #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The City of York's (UK) Explore Centre will be the first library and archive mutual
in the country. The City of York funds 15 libraries and archive service. This new
program forms a "social enterprise" giving the staff greater scope to work with the
local community and have greater say in how services are delivered. While the
service will continue to receive funding >from the City of York Council, under this
new program, the service may also have the flexibility to earn outside income in
different ways. This mutual business model allows for companies to bid to take over
other services in other parts of the country. The Cabinet office will provide up to
up to 100,000 GBP of business planning and legal advice. To read more about this
new project that may affect archives and libraries throughout the UK in the
future click here: http://tinyurl.com/amd2hoj

Re: Prussia in Poland #general

Roger Lustig
 

Dear Sy:
Could you be a little more specific? "Western Poland" can mean different things.

Today's western Poland is what once was Eastern (or Farther) Pomerania, the
Neumark and Silesia. Eastern Pomerania was Prussian/German >from 1653 until 1945.
Prussia conquered Silesia >from the Hapsburg Empire in 1742, and almost all of
Silesia remained Prussian/German until 1945 as well. The Neumark had belonged to
Brandenburg, later Prussia and finally Germany, since the 13thC.

Western Poland as defined after WWI (when a new Poland was created >from pieces of
the Russian, German and Austrian empires) corresponds mostly to what had been the
Grand Duchy/province of Posen since 1815.

There are vital records, Jewish and otherwise, >from all of these places, >from many
different periods and in various languages.

Finding marriage dates when there were consecutive wives in Eastern Europe #general

Rachel S Goodman
 

Hi Everyone,
I am having a dilemma that I am sure many have faced. After searching and being
rewarded by Judy Baston and her group's wonderful work, I have found family for my
GGF in the Lithuania Revision List for 1904 due to a note on the list. However, as
did many families in Eastern Europe, my GGF's brother had one wife and then a
second. I am assuming that the first passed away and then he took a second wife.
There are many offspring of his that I would like to place on my family tree
online. However, I cannot find the death date of the first wife or the marriage
date of the second. Therefore, I do not know whose children are the elder wife's
offspring, and who the younger's. This is necessary for the placement in the family
tree site, as it is programmed to ask the question, whose mother is this child's? A
few can be calculated by age and dates, as some children would be too old to be the
children of the second wife, but that is not a sure-fire solution. I assume that
many births and marriages were not recorded by the state and therefore dates and
the names of the mother are lost. Were the death dates also not recorded by the
state in many cases? I actually have this same situation in three of the four
branches of my tree. Thank you.
