I suspect (a) to be the grandfather of Victor Benjamin NEUBURG, but haven't

ancestors of both families NEUBURG, and whether they were related to one of
the 'old' families NEUBURG/ER in South Germany (since the late 16th cent.)."

My grandmother Mathilde NEUBURG's paternal ancestors were her father Moritz
NEUBURG b. about 1836 in Liptovsky Mikulas, now in Slovakia, and her

Thank you for this important piece of documented information. Until now I
had relied on a handwritten note by a deceased member of the BAUMFELD -
HUTTER tribe that named Moriz's first wife as "an officer's daughter named
PALESTER or PALISTER" for which I could never find any evidence.

Angela BAUMFELD's date and place of birth are given in several records,
including her death in Salzburg in 1935, as 10 March 1896 in Vienna.

I am still wondering what happened to Angelika Dorothea BAUMFELD; she is not
listed with Moritz (Morris) and the two children in the Manhattan, NY 1900
Census and does not show up in the immigration records.

I do not know where Emanuel was married. However, I will seek info guessing that

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Searching Simon Hollander line #Austria-Czech

Veronica Selinger <veronicaselinger@...>
 

I am seeking any information on a HOLLANDER line. My grandfather,
Simon HOLLANDER (Nathan ben Yehuda) place and date of birth unknown,
married Helen(a) POLLAK and lived in Novi Sad or Stara Pazova. He
died in 1917. Unfortunately, I have no knowledge of Simon's
parents: their names, where they lived, place of origin or names of
siblings, and this is what I would love to know about.

My father , Leo HOLLANDER, was born in Stara Pazova in 1893 (then
part of Austro-Hungary, now Serbia) and died in Sydney, Australia in
1956. I have photos of him in the uniform of an officer of the
Austro-Hungarian army (need to be verified). Leo was fluent in 7-8
languages, including French, Spanish, English and Hungarian, the
latter being my mother's family language. He moved to Egypt in the
1920's and came to Australia with his family in 1951.

There were several Hollander cousins, some who emigrated to Israel.
Arthur Hollander,a doctor, lived in Haifa many years ago and Issachar
Fischer, a lawyer in Tel Aviv, had a mother who was a Hollander.

The missing links remain as to where Simon HOLLANDER came >from and
the names of his parents and siblings, if any. Thank you to anyone
who has any information on this search of my forbears.

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Vienna - Bohemia: NEUBURG families #Austria-Czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Lars Menk is researching the origins of occult poet Victor Benjamin NEUBURG born
in London in 1883. His father was Carl NEUBURG and his grandfather was Moriz
NEUBURG of Vienna - but which one? Read on ...

Lars Menk wrote: "There were at least two persons named Moritz NEUBURG in Wien at
that time: (a) Moritz (Moses) NEUBURG, b. about 1820 (in Bohemia?), son of Salomon

died in Wien. Their daughter: Mathilde NEUBURG, b. 02 Mar 1868 in Horovice,
Bohemia (m. BRYK).

Lars suspects NEUBURG family *a* to be the grandfather of Victor Benjamin NEUBURG
of London.

Oliver Bryk confirmed that Mathilde >from the *b* family was his grandmother: and
her paternal ancestors were her father Moritz NEUBURG b. about 1836 in Liptovsky
Mikulas, now in Slovakia, and her grandfather Isak NEUBURG born in Topol'cany,
Slovakia {data >from Lenka Matusikova of the National Archives in Prague}.

Julius Muller replied to Lars Menk and Oliver Bryk: "Moses NEUBURG who married Ewa
Theresia RAUSCHER was glazier in Nahosice, south-west Bohemia near Bavaria. His
father Salomon was shulsinger in Chotimerice, also south-west Bohemia, his mother
was Wilhelmine HOFFMAN >from Prostibor, near Tachov, western Bohemia. Being
shulsinger often means being not local but rather coming >from other place." So this
is definitely NEUBURG family *a*

My conclusions: Families *a* and *b* are different although there are similar names
in both. Surely Oliver Bryk {family *b}, who has done so much research, would have
heard of Victor, who was a close relative?

Now here is a link for Julius living in Prague in 1905: {see conscriptions}

http://digi.nacr.cz/prihlasky2/index.php

1 MULLER (NEUBURG) Marta 1880
2 MULLER (NEUBURG) Martha 1880

Ludvig MULLER [1868] >from Prague was married to Martha NEUBURG born 1880
The family was Jewish {mosaisch} and Ludvig was a lawyer who worked for the K und K
Finanzprokurator. This was the family unit:

NULLER Ludvik (1868) >from Prague; MULLER (NEUBURG) Martha (1880) - >from ?;
MULLER Wilma (1900) - daughter; MULLER Grete Frieda Liese (1905) - daughter

The 1793 Jewish census of Bohemia only reveals one or two NEUBERG and no NEUBURG.
So it is indeed possible that Martha NEUBURG too is an immigrant to Bohemia and
related to the NEUBURG Julius has told us about.
Note that Moses NEUBURG's mother was called Wilhelmine and Ludvig's daughter is
called *Wilma* - perhaps a coincidence, but also possibly a family link. This
could also be NEUBURG family *a*.

Presumably this couple married in about 1899 and Julius is the perfect person to
find out who Martha's parents were! He may even find some relatives. Was she >from
NEUBURG family *a* or *b*?

There is another Bohemian NEUBURG family I have identified - the famous Hungarian
mathematician Arthur Erdelyi {ne DIAMAND} married {4 November 1942} Eva, daughter
of Frederic NEUBURG, of Leitmeritz and Helene (nee FEITIS), second cousin of Max
PERUTZ {see yad vashem for a link} .

Here are the NEUBURG Vienna graves:
Family *a* Zentralfriedhof I. Tor 8 6 21
Adelheid aged 76 15.12.1896
Moriz aged 72 21.06.1887
Frieda aged 78 11.03.1931

Nb the Prague family also had a daughter named Frieda..
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Family *b* - Bryk link - Zentralfriedhof I. Tor 8 41 71a

Zentralfriedhof I. Tor 19 47 67
Moriz aged 57 06.12.1893 - Handels-agent
Rosalie aged 55 20.06.1901 - Geflugelhandlerin
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Unidentified - Zentralfriedhof I. Tor 8 41 71a
Josef aged 33 27.02.1907 - probably quite poor

Unidentified - Zentralfriedhof I. Tor 19 4 5
Martha aged 9 04.05.1891 - Kaufmann's Tochter
Could this be a sister of Victor's - easily confirmed by the IKG?

Unidentified - Zentralfriedhof I. Tor 8 9 7
Rosalia aged 70 04.12.1885 - Lehrer's Witwe

I have found no Partezettel/obituaries for any of these NEUBURG to help us in our
quest.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Unfortunately I cannot find Victor NEUBURG and his family in the England censuses
but they were obviously well-established. Could the family have returned to Vienna
in the 1890s as they appear not to be in the 1891 census? >from the profiles above,
I would imagine he came >from family *a* , where there is indeed a son Karl/Carl.

I would suggest a search of the probate records and the Kartei der Fremden and and
Kartei der Ausgeschiedenen. The child Martha's death record may also provide some
clues.

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech HASSAN and ESKENASi birth records #Austria-Czech

David & Diana Laufer <dlaufer@...>
 

After many years of searching, I have still not found birth records of
my greatgrandmother Therese LOEWE nee HASSAN,
nor of her mother Marie HASSAN nee ESKENASI.
They both died in Vienna; Therese in 1903, Marie in 1891.

By searching the LDS microilms I have copies of the records of their deaths.
Relevant sections of these records are:

Therese LOWE (umlaut on O) geb HASSAN, aus Wien geburtig (native of Vienna), geb am 12.6.1833.
Died on 29 May 1903

Marie HASSAN geb ESKENASI, aus Wien geboren (born in Vienna), aged 78. Died on 20 December 1891.

In the introduction to Mathilde Tagger's birth index of the Turkish (i.e. sephardic) community of
Vienna http://www.sephardicgen.com/databases/viennaBirthsSrchFrm.html she states that ESKENASY was
among the surnames of the earliest Sephardic Jews living in Vienna.

Any assistance or advice on finding the birth records of these two ladies would be appreciated.


While searching registration cards "Karteichen Matriken" on LDS microfilms yesterday, I found advice
of the death of Josef HASSAN, Marie's husband. It states that he died on 12.III.1854 at Rossau 50,
he was 46 years of age, and born in Bucharest. Rossau is part of the 9th district in Vienna. I
have not seen Josef HASSAN on the IKG's cemetery database, and again I would appreciate any
assistance in determining where he was buried.

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech The NEUBURG/JACOBS family of Bohemia and London. #Austria-Czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Lars Menk wrote re the father of Victor Benjamin NEUBURG born London 1884 ... His parents were Carl
NEUBURG, b. ca. 1856 in the Austrian Empire, general importer in Wien in 1882, and Jeannette JACOBS, b.
1855 in London, daughter of the English cane merchant Moses JACOBS and Rebecca LEVY.

As I wrote yesterday, I spent a long time looking for Carl and his family in the 1891 and 1901 censuses of
England and Wales. In the process, I corrected many *false* NEUBURG born in rural England in the early
1800s to the correct NEWBURY and NEWBERY names.

I was probably tired as [thank you, David Laufer for the hint!] I finally this morning found a Carl NEUBURG
perversely indexed as Charles NEWBERY in the 1891 census as *single*, living in a boarding house alone -
he is a stick factor - born in Bohemia. I take this to imply that he was also involved in cane {nb his
father-in-law}.

So the real English NEWBERY were indexed as NEUBURG and the rare Bohemian NEUBURG was indexed as
NEWBERY!

However in 1891, Victor and his mother were living with his widowed maternal grandmother in large family
unit whilst father Carl was living in a boarding house! Or could this be another Charles/Carl doppelganger?

Rebecca Jacobs 59; Hannah Jacobs 34; Jeannette Jacobs 31 {nb not NEUBURG }; Benjamin Jacobs 31; Sydney
Jacobs 29; Theresa Jacobs 27; Edward A Jacobs 26; Montague Jacobs 21; Victore B Newbury 7 - servants
Eliza Pickford 22 Caroline Eggenton 21 Here we read they were in canvas? furniture.

Furthermore, there appear to be two NEUBURG births registered in Islington in this period - Margarethe
Maud 1887 Jan-Feb-Mar and Victor Benjamin 1883 Apr-May-June, so perhaps Victor had a younger sister
or there was another NEUBURG family in Islington.

In 1901 I have found thAt Victor and his mother were still living with his widowed grandmother and cousins -
the JACOBS family - furniture makers: Rebecca JACOBS 73 grandmother; Benjamin JACOBS 42; Edward F
JACOBS; Theresa JACOBS 37; Jeannette NEWBURG 44 {married}; Victore NEWBURG 19; servants Ernestine
RUST 48 >from Konigsberg; Charles STROHMANN 20 >from Hamburg and Lydia Everitt 22 >from Essex. There
is no sign of another NEUBURG sibling.

Victorâ??s nuclear NEUBURG family did not appear to live together. Were his parents separated? Perhaps
this accounted for his unconventionality and later in his life, his instability? He was taunted for his Jewish
roots and suffered a nervous breakdown. His father may have resided in Vienna or perhaps even in Prague?
I have written about the Spanische Rohrhandler of Bohemia and Amsterdam before â?? cane furniture was
very much the vogue.

I will correct all the false names to NEUBURG for the benefit of future generations of genealogists.

David; Marie may be related to one or more of these early members of the Vienna Jewish community
{Sephardic members may have changed the spelling of their family names to blend in} - on the other hand,
those listed below may not be Sephardic but possibly >from Moravia - I have not researched them:

Wahringerfriedhof

Aschkanasy Israel 22/061839

ZENTRALFRIEDHOF I. TOR 8 20 73a
Aschkanazy Abraham 55 Year(s) 05/06/1905 07/06/1905

Also try these spellings: Eskanasi Eskanasy Aschkenasi and there may be others.

I have found Marie HASSAN in Tor I Group 7 6 22 [a Sephardic group] under *Maria* and Therese LOWE too
at Tor I 49a 3 78. Joseph Hassan may also be buried in Group 7 after having been exhumed >from
Wahringerfriedhof to be buried near his wife {this happened to my gt-grandfather Albert KOHN}.
When Josef died, Tor 1 was not yet open for burials. I suppose it is always possible that he was taken
*home* to Bucharest for burial.

The indexing of group 7 is incomplete and many names may be missing.
Similarly, I have heard that the Wahring database is incomplete.

As for the Sephardic births, I have no idea how complete they are.
HASSAN Emanuel who died 07/04/1878 certainly had a number of children. He is buried in
Wahringerfriedhof - it would be interesting to find out about him, if at all possible.

David & Diana Laufer <dlaufer@...>
 

I thank Celia for her comments in response to my message of yesterday.

Josef HASSAN:
It is disappointing to suspect that the records of the Wahringerfriedhof, and of Group 7 Tor I of
the Zentralfriedhof are incomplete. Is there any chance that more information on those cemeteries
might become available ? I acknowledge the possibility that Josef may have been sent back to
Romania for burial, but wonder about the duration of such a trip and the availability of
refrigeration in the 1850's. Also, I have not yet found him on any JOWBR database.

Emanuel HASSAN
I have no idea if he is related to Josef HASSAN. >from the Kartei Matriken I note that he died on
6.4.78 at age 66 and his address was II Praterstrasse 48. His children were Josefine (b.1837),
Sarah (1841), Lion (1843), Therese (1845), Mathilde (1847), Rachel (1850), Marianne (1855), Nissim
(1858 aka Ludwig), Sophie (1861). It appears that circa 1864 he remarried to Anna Zerer.

Marie/Maria/ Marianne HASSAN née ESKENASI
In my years of research I have noted that the spelling of names, especially in the 19th Century was
not consistent. For example I have seen records of females sometimes given the name Franziska and
sometimes Fanny to the same persons. It took me some time to recognise Maria's death record as I
had been looking for a Marianne HASSAN geb. ESKENASIE for that is the name shown in the Trauer Album
for Therese LOEWE geb. HASSAN as Therese's mother. The Stammbaum (family tree) at the back of this
Trauer Album shows Therese's siblings as Rosalie KAISER, Gustav HASSAN, Elisabeth KOHN, Jakob HASSAN
and Rosa LEUCHT. In the Wien IKG
cemetery database I have noted 29 individuals with surname ESKENASI or ESKENASY, their dates of
death and dates of burial (usually 2 days later), and their ages. However, these do not help me
discovering Marianne Eskenasi's birth details. It is also a pity that the records >from which
Mathilde Tagger indexed the Turkish Community's births only starts in 1845. The oral history given
to me by my mother is that the family originally came >from Constantinople.

I trust that the additional details given above will be recognised by someone,and thus assist me in
my search.

Thanks and regards

In response to my recent messages regarding Josef HASSAN, Traude Triebel has drawn my attention to
the Wiener Zeitung of 17 March 1854. There among the advices of then recent deaths in Vienna was
Josef HASSAN who died at age 46 of tuberculosis on 12 March 1854. In browsing through the other
notices it seems that many deaths in Vienna at that time were of this disease. What else is
interesting is that Rossau was the location of the Israelite Hospital.

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Isac L ESKENASI from Romania - 1856 - 8 Aug 1923 #Austria-Czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

David Laufer is frustrated looking for his ESKENASI family >from Romania.
There were probably many of them and some may have wandered off to
Constantinople. David mentioned, legend has it that his family may have
originated >from there. Or they may have come >from there and gone West!
Many certainly went to Egypt; they were a mobile group.

Here is a Vienna-Romania-Eskenasi link for David worth exploring -
a well-established, wealthy family, buried in the Doblingerfriedhof.

The grave was recently photographed by Traude Triebel:

http://www.grave-pictures.at/bilderforum/showphoto.php?photo=5583

Family names: COHEN ESKENASI FISCHER ROSENBAUM TUVY

Locations: Craiova Vienna Rotterdam

Company: Leon M ESKENASI and sons, Craiova

I cannot find an obituary for his wife Celine who may also be nee Eskenasi
as his sister-in-law is named Sali M ESKENASI. Alternatively, this
sister-in-law may have been married to Isac's deceased brother.

Going further back we find that Nehama de MAJO was nee ESKENASI and was
married to Nathan de MAJO. She was born in 1812:

There is a lot of scope for research but it takes time and a lot of
effort. Thanks to Traude's photos and the ANNO site I have been able to
piece the above together. I also have a site dedicated solely to Sephardic
graves in Vienna - there are very many scattered around. I have included
quite a lot of genealogical data. I have an ESKENASY and also a HASSAN;
the HASSAN is >from Constantinople.

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech *What* happened to Carl NEUBURG {Victor Benjamin's father}? #Austria-Czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

In the last two days I have written extensively about the NEUBURG families
from Bohemia, Slovakia and Vienna in answer to Lars Menk's query.
These families now involve Victor Benjamin NEUBURG {a British poet}
himself as well as our Austria-Czech members Oliver Bryk {California},
Freddy Spielmann {Berlin} and Peter Barber {London} - so, far >from being
an esoteric query, it has taken-on an international dimension.

Yesterday, in my analysis, I noticed that Victor NEUBURG's father
Carl/Karl {Charles} was absent >from the family home for the ten-year
period of the England censuses, 1891-1901. Where could he be?
Vienna perhaps? Or Prague?

I did not give you extensive references to Victor Benjamin NEUBURG - you
can find them easily, if interested - because many of them refer to the
homosexual and occult side of his character. The fact that he was a
catalyst in the introduction of Dylan Thomas to the literary world is
rather glossed over. I have now found out what happened to Victor's
father - and my intuition was correct - read on:

Victor Benjamin NEUBURG ...... {went up} to Cambridge in 1906, {aged 23}
... his family .... admitted that he was not cut out for a business
career. {Coming} >from a comfortable middle-class home in N. London, .....
raised by his mother ***following the departure of his father for his
native Vienna*** shortly after the ***arranged marriage***. The bulk of
the .... money on his {maternal side} lay with {his} Uncle Edward, who
financed {Victor's} education and gave his mother a {Sussex} cottage in
Sussex to ... supplement the Hove flat to which she had moved in 1903.
Victor's family, ..... kind and generous, had little in common with a
young man who rejected conventional Judaism ......and yet had experienced
mystical states since childhood.

So I assume we can find Carl's details in Meldezettel in Vienna after some
digging around. He is apparently not buried in the Zentralfriedhof Tor I
or IV. He may have cremated {if the plot was not "auf Friedhofsdauer"
the data will no longer be on the database}. This would also apply if he
were buried in other cemeteries - or at the end of his life he may have
moved elsewhere.

I have seen many obituaries in my time, but this one really is a prize
specimen, full of genealogical promise and links:

Charlotte DEUTSCH nee LOWITT dies in Vienna in 1896 aged 79;
she has 12 surviving children living in Vienna, Saaz {Bohemia}; Breslau;
Paris; Philadelphia and Buenos Aires - also linked to Pressburg.

Unfortunately, we have no clues about who moved where.

This family dispersed nearly 50 years before the holocaust. My hunch
is that this is a Bohemian family {I know of LOWITT >from this area}
and may be involved in the brewing industry. Saaz was a centre of
the hops industry.

Names in the family: DEUTSCH; FISCHL; KOTANYI; LEMBERGER;
LIEBRECHT; LOWITT {umlaut O}; MELZER; NAGEL; NATHANSKY

Charlotte was buried in Pressburg {Bratislava} where her husband,
who obviously predeceased her, was buried.

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Missing records in the IKG cemetery database. #Austria-Czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

There are definitely missing records in the Turkische Abteilung and
probably in others too. Obviously if you photograph a whole group or
a single grave, you have to cross-check, if the graves are listed.

I have come across one that is definitely not listed {confirmed by the
IKG}: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cam37/2567429129/

- a magnificent tombstone of A S MOSSERI >from Salonika and as I
did not write down where it was, I will have to look for it again.
And here, I believe there is another. I have looked at variants
LEVI LEVY LOWY LOWI {using umlauts} LEWY LEWI, but have not
checked various years, incase the wrong dates as well as names have been
entered. If you find Julius, please let me know!

Julius LEVI - died 27 Nov 1904 buried in the Turkische Abteilung.

As for Wahringerfriedhof, I was told that there are possibly thousands
more buried there, that are not recorded.
