Happy New Year (almost!)
I am trying to track down a Symcha Joina AJZENGOLD, born 17 August 1898
in Warsaw, who is almost certainly a relative. I'd like to know who his
parents were and what happened to him.
He is one of the lucky people who got a Sugihara visa and wound up in
Shanghai in 1941, where he stayed, supported by the Joint, until 1949.
He arrived in San Francisco on the General M C Meigs on 24 Jan 1949.
The actual shipping record says he is "in transit", and since he gives
an address as 270 Madison Ave. New York, that's probably where he was in
transit to. However, US census data for the 1950s is not yet released
and I don't know enough about the US system to know where to go from
I would be most grateful if anyone could help me follow up on this.
Family names: FELD, MLYNARZ/MILLER, AJGENGOLD, BLANK, RASTENBERG,
BLUMBERG, RAKOWER, possibly PREFSEIZEN
