Meyer JOFFE; Pretoria #southafrica

Tim Baker <tbaker@...>
 

Looking for a contact for Meyer Joffe, son of Kasreel, who I believe is
or was a judge
in Johannesburg. May now be retired. Or names of Meyer Joffe's
siblings? Or
names/contacts for his children? I am helping some friends here
determine if there were additional survivors >from their JAFFE/JOFFE
family >from the area of Rokiskis, Lithuania,
or up into Latvia, and since Kasreel is a somewhat uncommon name, and
since the
Kasreel in South Africa was supposedly friends w/ Rokiskers ...
Or is there anyone willing to read Kasreel Joffe's headstone in
Pretoria Cemetery?
(I am told Meyer Joffe grew up in Pretoria.)
Please reply privately. Thank you.

You need to visit the Cape Archives and spend some hours patiently leafing
through the arrivals records - or alternatively pay a local researcher to do
it there for you. I can recommend one. Contact me offline if this interests
you.

Subject: A sea voyage to Cape town 1849
From: Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
Date: Tue, 21 Mar 2006 23:13:42 +0000 (GMT)

I have a contemporary account of a sea voyage which a distant relative of
mine made in 1849. He wrote that he left London on the 12th May 1849,
spending two days in Gravesend, and arrived in Cape Town (South Africa) on
the 28th August 1849.

Is there any way in which I could identify the ship upon which my relative
travelled? Am I pushing my luck in hoping that someone has access to a
record of ship arrivals in Cape Town in 1849?

Re: Old NYC High School in Delancey Vicinity #general

If a person lived at 138 Delancey St in NYC, which high school would this
person attend close to this home? I'm looking for a high school
that existed in that area around 1890.
I'm not sure when it was first established, but my father-in-law went
to Seward Park H.S. He was born in 1916.

Perhaps it was Seward Park H.S. or Washington Irving H.S. (all girls in

Census 1841 Danish West Indies St. Thomas: DELVALLE #scandinavia

Van Wijngaarden <hvw79@...>
 

Friends,

I hope someone in this forum has access to the census of 1841 and
can help me.

This time I am trying to find out more about the identity of the
(ex) wife or widow of Isaac DELVALLE on St. Thomas (DWI).
Her name was SARAH........

Isaac DELVALLE, born Curacao ( 1807- ?) was the son of Solomon
DELVALLE and Deborah MOTTA >from Curaçao.
Isaac settled in St. Thomas and married to SARA.......

In the census of 1846 Sarah and her son Salomon- 16yrs ( named
after his gf) are living in a street called Palme and Sarah is
a shopkeeper. No mentioning of daddy Isaac DELVALLE.

The V.I. death record for Salomon: Salomon J. Salom DELVALLE ,
b. 1830, d. 17 Jun 1886, age 56, died of rupture. Occupation:
peddler. Buried first in the second row of the west side.
[I suppose that "J" is "I" for Isaac.]

The Margolinsky Epitaphs for St. Thomas, epitaph #166 is for Sarah, wife of
Isaac DELVALLE: b. 15 Mar 1795, d. 9 Jul 1868, age 73.

Can you help me in finding out or advising me how I could proceed to know
more about this unknown Sara.

Do you have a Napoleon 1812 story?

Roots-Key, the journal of JGSLA is collecting information about the
Napoleon's Russian Campaign of 1812. We hope to be able to plot the
route >from Kovno to Moscow with your stories. Napoleon's army covered
a broad front stretched north and south through Riga, Kovno, Vilna,
Svensionys, Vitebsk, Mogilev and Minsk, bordered by the Pripet Marshes
on the south.... crossing the Nieman, the Dneiper, and the Berezino
Rivers....with major battles = in Smolensk, Borisov and Borodino.
Every village and villager was affected. Construction, demolition,
pillage, disease and death threatened every shtetl and town in
his path.

If you have a story, no matter how insignificant or obscure it sounds,
we would like to hear it. If you would like to participate in this JGSLA
project, please contact me personslly: nholden@...

need Jerusalem volunteers #gdansk #germany #poland #danzig

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Dear SIG members,

This is a reminder that we need volunteers in Jerusalem in order to proceed
with what should be a major advance in Danzig Jewish genealogy. If you
previously read a message >from me asking for volunteers, but thought someone
else might step forward, please reconsider whether you can help, since
nobody has volunteered for this. I understand that it is impractical for
many SIG members (myself included) to visit Jerusalem. If this applies to
you, please check whether you know anyone in Jerusalem who might help us.
Volunteers will be contributing to the preservation of the memory of the
destroyed Jewish community of Danzig.

Volunteers are needed to examine specific documents at the Central Archives
for the History of the Jewish People (CAHJP) in Jerusalem, in its Archives
of the Jewish Community of Danzig. By examine, I do not mean extract
genealogical data, enter into Excel spreadsheets, etc. All that we need at
this point is for people on the ground to report on the type, extent, and
format of genealogical content in the documents, including whether the
documents' descriptions in the online inventory are accurate. Even if a
volunteer can only examine a single document, that will be helpful.

Without this preliminary investigation of the documents, we will not be able
to proceed with plans to make the genealogical content of the Archives of
the Jewish Community of Danzig more easily accessible (e.g., through online
databases).

The Archives reflect the history of the united Danzig Jewish community and
its five precursor communities (Altschottland, Langfuhr, Mattenbuden,
Weinberg, Danzig-Breitgasse) >from 1720 to 1938 (and also nearby Tiegenhof
from 1858 to 1936). Included are the communities' own records of births,
deaths, burials, ownership and transfer of synagogue seats, finances,
synagogue membership, correspondence with Jewish and non-Jewish
organizations and authorities, rules, hiring of rabbis and other religious
personnel, school class lists, membership and activities of Jewish
organizations in Danzig (including many that flourished in the 20th
century), and more.

Even after more than 65 years, this resource, no doubt saved by the
Community with the intent that it be a remembrance of Danzig’s unique Jewish
history, remains but an opportunity for genealogists, since its genealogical
content has apparently never been comprehensively examined and extracted.

Please help us and your own Danzig genealogical research by considering
whether you can volunteer in this way. There might be future volunteer
opportunities to work with this material >from the comfort of your home (not
restricted to Jerusalem), but only if this preliminary work is done first.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact me privately for further
details.

Thanks very much and best regards,
