FRANKEL (a Umlaut) from Bielsko-Biala #germany

Oliver Bryk <oliverbryk@...>
 

I am looking for information about Sigmund FRAENKEL (a Umlaut) and his family
from Biala, now Bielsko-Biala.
Bielsko-Biala is now one city in Poland. At various times Bielsko (Bielitz)
was in one jurisdiction (for example, "Ostschlesien") and Biala in a
different jurisdiction (for example, "Kleinpolen") or country, i.e.,
Germany, Austria (Galicia), and Poland.

Sigmund's family owned and operated a distillery and liqeur production
business "Adolf FRANKEL (a Umlaut) & Sohne (o Umlaut)" in Biala. They
exhibited at the world fair ("Weltausstellung") in 1873 in Vienna and in
1900 in Paris. The firm was an accredited supplier ("Hoflieferant") to the
Emperor's court in Vienna. One of the shareholders was Heinrich FRANKEL (a
Umlaut); I do not know how he is related to Adolf, and whether he or Adolf
was Sigmund's father.

Sigmund was a talented musician and mathematician who had no interest in the
business. I do not know the dates of his birth or death.

About 1894 he married Stephanie (Stefanie) (last name unknown) (1881-1936);
she was the daughter of Josepha Hofmann >from Zablocie-Zywiec (Saybusch). A
son Stefan Severin was born in 1900 in Bielsko-Biala; he died in England in
1965, allegedly a suicide. I do not know the date of birth or death of his
sister Elisabeth (Lisa). Stefanie left Sigmund about 1906.

In WWI Sigmund served on the Italian front and was wounded at the Isonzo.

I shall be grateful for information about Sigmund, his ancestors, siblings
or other relatives.

Fanny WEINSTEIN family London to Boston #general

Ruth Silver <ruth.silver@...>
 

Dear Genners,
I need help in trying to find a family who are probably related to my family
through my great great grandfather Michael WEINSTEIN.

Fanny and Simon WEINSTEIN were in London between 1881 and 1901. Simon is not
on the English census in 1891 and Fanny gives her status as widowed in 1901.

Simon is listed as having registered his children at the Jewish free school
in 1896.

In the 1901 English census the children are Mary (1877),Sarah (1883), Julia
(1884), Betsy (1886), Barnet (1888), and Annie (1891) WEINSTEIN.

Fanny, Sarah, Julia, Betsy, Barnet and Annie travelled on the Saxonia in
1904 to Boston to their daughter/sister (probably Mary). Then I lose most of them.

Julia married a Sol FIELDS in New York in 1906 and had two daughters Maxime
(1909) and Lilian (1912). I cannot find any more trace of this family.

I found a WWI registration card for a Barnet Winston in Boston who said that
he was married but did not give his wife's name.

I have not managed to find the family in Boston in any of the censuses. I
have no certainty that they stayed in Boston.

Can anyone suggest ways of searching Boston records or other ways of tracing
these people?

Thanks

Request for photographs at WestView Cemetery, Pittsburgh, PA #general

Carol Jaffe <cmjaffe@...>
 

Clear DayHello All,

I would like very much if someone is going to be in the vicinity of WestView
Cemetery in Pittsburgh, PA to take 2 photos for me. Sometime back I found a
gr aunt & uncle there not knowing I would now find another family member.

David BEAR/BAER born June 1867-died December 1948/January 1949 & his wife
Jennie/Jeannie BEAR/BAER born May 1872 and died 6 Sept 1925.

Going through the Pittsburgh Newspaper Project I found this part of the
family spelled BAER both ways.

Many thanks in advance for your help, since David BAER has been a brick wall
for quite awhile.

Some of you have noticed that you received no posts or digests between
August 2nd and 5th. An unforeseen technical problem caused about a
third of the subscribers to JewishGen and hosted lists to be cut off
during that time. The problem has been resolved, and all subscribers
should now be receiving posts and digests normally.

If you think you might have been one of those affected, you can
retrieve any posts you missed by following the directions in the
JewishGen Support Center at

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Support.htm#q3.8

You will have to send a request for each list you are subscribed to.
Requests can be sent as separate lines in one e-mail or in separate

Mikhalishki in Belarus Revision Lists #belarus

Howard Margol
 

In yesterday's Digest I erroneously said Mikaliskes (which is in the
Panevezys district of Lithuanai) when I should have said Mikhalishki in Belarus.
Following is the correct message as well as an update.

Several researchers have asked me if revision lists exist for Mikhalishki
earlier than the 1858 revision list. I have sent that question to Galina
Baranova, Chief Archivist at the Historical Archive in Vilnius (LVIA) and
following is her response.
the archive keeps following RL for Mikhalishki JC (former Vilno district
and gubernia and at present time - Belarus):
- 515/15/193 for 1811 (Polish language);
- 515/15/277 for 1816/1818;
- 515/25/300 for 1834;
- 515/15/827 for 1850.

We can have those revision lists translated provided sufficient funds are
contributed to LitvakSIG. We would need a minimum total of $500 in order to

get started. 1850 would be translated first and then 1834, depending on
the amount of contributions received.

To contribute, go to www.litvaksig.org/contribute/ Use your credit card as
the site is secure. Be sure and designate your contribution is for
Mikhalishki. Iin the NOTES BLOCK, key in Mikhalishki.

UPDATE - Enough contributions have already come in to get the 1850
revision list translated. Now we need additional contributions to get the 1834 RL
translated. If you contribute a minimum of $100, you will receive both as
well as the earlier revision lists if sufficient funds are available. Lesser
amounts will also be a big help.

If you do decide to contribute, please send me an email message so I can
make sure you receive the lists as soon as they are translated.
