Searching for Relative in Paris Area (RAABE) #france

noam.silberberg@...
 

Dear Genners,

I'm trying to find information regarding my relative, Jakob RAABE. He
was born around 1870 to a Jewish family in Warsaw and in the 1930's he
immigrated to Paris. I have a 1938 obituary >from a Polish newspaper
stating that he died in Montfort near Paris and was also buried there.
The only Montfort near Paris that I was able to find was
Montfort-l'Amaury, in the Yvelines department. However, I contacted
the "Maison de tourisme et du patrimoine" in Montfort-l'Amaury and
they could not find RAABE in the town records or the cemetery.

Does anyone know of another "Montfort near Paris"? And if not, where
should I continue my search?

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Many thanks,

Noam Silberberg

Data About Hungarians who left in 1956 #hungary

j.kovacs@...
 

I am responding to the Sankar and Klein comments about data about Hungarians who Left Hungary in 1956.
I have no information about anything being on line about any escapees. But I believe that these refugees had
the opportunity to work with non-governmental agencies upon arrival in Austria. The reason for my statement
is that the Nation Catholic Welfare Conference (NCWC) asked me to go to Austria at that time. They knew me
>from my work of about one year with Eastern European refugees and non governmental agencies, such as
NCWC, and the WCC for protestant, and IRA International refugee agency, who worked with any refugees in
two refugee camps near Nuremberg, Germany in the camps of Zirndorf and Valka and German government
official. I would imagine that the HIAS also had representation in Austria at that time. If anyone is really
interested in finding out about any relatives who escaped at that time may want to contact any of these
agencies. Whether they respond is another question.

Searching Weinberger #hungary

Sandra Nutig
 

Hello,

I have found my grandparents Samuel and Fannie Weinberger who came to
the USA in 1884 >from where I believe is Bratislava. Their two sons
Mortitz > Morris E. 7 and Jacob 3 followed in 1885.

Samuel?s parents are listed as, Henry (Heinrich) Weinberger and Sadie
Klein, on his death certificate dated 1914. Samuel and Fannie had 4
more children born in New York: William, Henriette, Abraham and Meyer.

I haven?t been able to trace this family back to Austria, Hungary or
Slovenia. I tried JOWBR. If anyone has any ideas I would greatly
appreciate any help.

Thank you,

Re: Searching for documents - Patent Applications #general

Jan Fine asked "Does it make sense to anyone else that a patent
application might actually be beneficial to someone doing family genealogy?"

Awhile back, a cousin was explaining the falling out between the children
and ex-wives of a cousin about whom I had known nothing more than a name.
Turns out he invented "Rabbit Ears," those two-armed antennae that used to
sit on top of every TV set in every living room on the planet.
The invention brought him a sizeable fortune over which his exes and
offspring are still fighting.

I learned more >from the newspaper articles that tracked the battle than I
would ever have culled >from family members -- including the fact that he
also invented the water-powered automatic potato-peeler. Okay, so they can't
all be winners.

The point is, discovering that a relative or ancestor applied for a patent
can send you off in new directions. If the invention was a hit, there might
be articles in newspapers, special interest or technical publications.

Patents, copyrights and/or their proceeds can also be passed along in the
holder's will. The names of beneficiaries - whether individuals, charities
or commercial enterprises - might open more avenues.

Even if the invention or creative work wasn't successful (or was totally
off-the-wall), the inventor might have had enough faith in it that he/she
wanted its value to accrue to someone.

Even if you don't find your family, you're likely to get a few good laughs.
And if you come across the water-powered potato-peeler, please let me know!

FRIEDSON; FRIEDSAM; FREELANDER #general

Israel Fritzson <ifritzson@...>
 

I am looking for a Gisha FRIEDSON (FRIEDSAM) his wife Teige Chodosh. I
think they lived in Soly, Belarus or some where between Minsk and
Vilnius, between the years 1850 to 1920.

Know they had three children, but they may have had more. The three I know are Lieb
Freidson, Abrham Fritzson and Sasha Freelander (?)

Any history buffs?? #general

Trudy Barch
 

Hi everyone,

My current research has taken me to 1910 and prior to Bavaria. I have been
on the internet today and found the Kingdom of Bavaria (1806-1918).
I think in Prussia. Then it became the State of Bavaria in Germany.

How do I find a small town/city that my ancestors lived?

History was not my 'thing'. Too bad, it sure would help searching where
ancestors lived.

Thank you for any help.
