21730 Do you recognize?

2/19/2012 4:14 PM This is my great grandmother Rosalie Rowelsky (I'm unsure of both spellings). She was not German but lived in Berlin and married Oscar Tannenbaum. It was his second marriage. They had a daughter, Dora/Deborah.

Rosalie died of blood poisoning some time around 1920.

I would like to hear from anyone who recognises these names or faces. I have loaded other photos of the whole family. Thank you.

21731 Do you recognize?

2/19/2012 4:14 PM This is a photograph of my grandmother Dora / Deborah Tannenbaum. It was taken in the Jewish orphanage in Berlin where she had grown up, or possibly a high school or college. I have other photographs of her in the orphanage (Reichenheim) showing many different girls.

I would like to hear from anyone who recognises her, or any of the other girls. I would also like to know if anyone recognises the buildings behind the group here. Any small bit of information will be very gratefully received.

I will share more photos of the orphanage next week (I've reached my maximum five).

Thank you.

21728 Do you recognize?

2/19/2012 4:13 PM This is an image of my grandmother Deborah Tannenbaum as a child, with her father Oscar (sp?) and mother Rosalie (sp?) nee Rowelsky (sp?)

They were not German but they lived in Berlin and Dora was born there. Rosalie died of blood poisoning (I think) when Dora was still a young child. Oscar put her into the care of a Jewish foundation in Berlin. See my other photos for pictures of her there.

I would like to hear from anyone who recognises these names and faces or anyone who can tell me more about the Jewish foundation in Berlin that raised Dora.

There were aunts and uncles in Berlin also, but I don't know their names. I would love to find out more about them and hear from their descendants.

Oscar also had older children from an earlier marriage, who reportedly went to the USA. Again, I don't know their names and would like to find out more.

Thank you.

21729 Do you recognize?

2/19/2012 4:13 PM This is my grandmother Dora as a baby, with her mother Rosalie Tannenbaum (nee Rowelsky). They were not German but were living in Berlin.

Rosalie died when Dora was five or six years old and her father Oscar Tannenbaum (see my other photos) put her into a Jewish Foundation in Berlin.

I would like to hear from anyone who recognises these names and faces, or who can tell me more about the Jewish foundation.

Thank you

21725 Do you recognize?

2/19/2012 4:12 PM I am told this is a photo of my great grandfather, Oskar/Oscar Tannenbaum who we think was born in Romania but lived most of his life in Berlin, Germany.

He had a first marriage and children of that marriage are supposed to have gone to the USA but we don't have any of their names. I would like to find them as I hope they know more about our history than we do.

If anyone recognises this man (it could be Oscar, or perhaps a son?) or if you can tell me anything about him based on this photo, please get in touch. We know very little. The text is a new year greeting.

I'm the granddaughter of his daughter, Dora or Deborah, his child with Rosalia Rowelsky (sp?)

21712 Translation - Yiddish

2/19/2012 4:08 PM Could you please translate to Hebrew or English?
I guess writing is not easy to read.
The woman is my grandma, Etla Gorodecki nee Shenkman. She came to "Palestine" in 1936 and lived in Tel-Aviv until her death in 1946. Same picture is on her Polish passport.
Would appreciate whatever is possible to translate. Thank you.

21713 Translation - Hebrew

2/19/2012 4:08 PM This document is the Chief Rabbi's authorisation of the marriage of Lewis Cohen to Ziporah Lann who was my great grandmother. We in Australia know little about Ziporah other than what is in her death certificate - which is for her as 'Sarah Cohen', mentions the marriage described on this authorisation, mentions also that she had been married to 'Moses Aaron Lann' father of the three children who came with her to Australia in 1891 as 'Lann' and refers to her maiden name as Ziporah Aurbach born about 1850 in Lodz. We know her two daughters were born in Lowicz.
We did not know of the name 'Listkoff' which is mentioned in this authorisation, or what happened to Cohen (other than he died) or how it was that Ziporah came to Australia and was described in the 1891 census as Sarah Goldberg.
So, a translation of the Hebrew, particularly as to names could be very helpful indeed in tracing Ziporah's roots in Poland.
