Recently had an old (1910 or 20's) letter translated >from Hebrew (so
spellings could be off)(Kurents area ?) and here's what I think I deduced:

1. Letter is written or dictated by Leah SKLAR (married to David SKLAR)
2. To her sister Rochl (whose husband (ZUSSMAN) stated on her death cert
that her father's name was Aaron SKOLNICK)
3. Leah had six children
Yitzchak(M)-lost or disappeared in the war
Yehudis(F)-married & emigrated to USA
Zvulun(?)-living in Luksiai, Sakiai, Lithuania
Arken(M)-(called him Swindler) emigrated to USA
Chana(F)-married to Asher KAPLAN and living near parents
Melach(M)-married & emigrated to USA

Leah states that Yehudis,Arken & Melach "should write me a letter and tell
me how they are if they have a drop of Yiddishkeit"

Does anything tie in to your family history?

Gaertner #austria-czech

George Beykovsky <beykovsky@...>
 

I am interested in archives/data regarding Gustav GAERTNER, Pthalogist
born Sept 26, 1855 and died in Vienna April 11, 1937.
He earned full profesorship in his field and invented many processes
still used today regarding milk and its dietary benefits.

Possibly you can assist me in a source of his biography and professional resume.

Thanks for any assistance.

Re: Census Kolodeje 1793 #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Ludwig Marbach asks for details of families with the
names MARBACH, LOWY [umlaut], FASSLER [umlaut],
FRANKEL [umlaut] and FRIED in Kalladey/Kolodeje nad
Luznici in 1793. Ludwig also asks for POLLAK but is
not sure if this is the right family.

Kalladey is unusual in the Bohemian census of 1793 as
ages are given in many instances. The article in The
Jews and Jewish Communities of Bohemia [Hugo
Gold]looks informative but unfortunately is in Czech.

A: MARBACH - There is one family called MANBACH
[second-hand dealer] Sigmund aged 31 with wife Rosa
and baby son Abraham, just one year old

The name may be a mistranscription or could perhaps
have mutated over the years.

B: LOWY - Kalladey has four LOVI families [umlaut]:

1. Moises LOVI aged 50 [fabric dealer] - wife Rosa
[48]; son Abraham [13]; three daughters 25, 23 and 17
and single brother Isac [54].

2. Aron LOVI aged 70 [fabric dealer]; wife Katharina
[43] and unmarried sons Joachim [34] and Samuel [23]
and daughter Sara [no age given].

3. Salamon LOVI aged 42 [fabric dealer], wife Barbara
[40] and sons Joachim [15]; Jakob [10] and daughter
Ewa [4].

4. Jakob LOVI aged 62 [dealer], wife Margaretha [59]
unmarried sons Isack [23] and Tobias [20] and daughter
Barbara [21] - a fairly wealthy family.

C: FASSLER - there is one family - Tobias, a
Bierschanker aged 67 - wife Sara aged 62 and sons
Marcus [20] and daughter Franzl [24].

D: FRANKEL None - but one FRANK

E: FRIED - David FRIED [46]; wife Rosalia [43] and
four sons Eliakim [19]; Feith [8]; Joachim [4] Israel
[2].

F: POLAK [sic] - is one POLAK family: David POLAK [73]
wife Susana [70] and three daughters, presumably
unmarried, a 29, 27 and 25 and unusually a
grand-daughter - little Ludmilla aged 5, but we do not
know who the father or mother is.

my great-great-grandfather from Alsace, France #france

Wanda Iliff <wanda_wonderer@...>
 

My name is Wanda Lynne Nestlehutt Iliff. I am hoping
to find out information about my
great-great-grandfather Peter Nestlehutt who was born
in Alsace Lorraine in 1825. He immigrated to the USA
and by 1860 was on the census for Coweta County,
Georgia. His father may have been named William
Nestlehutt who was born in 1800 and also immigrated to
the USA but lived in Indiana. (William Nestlehutt
might be Peter's uncle... we are not sure.)

The name Nestlehutt or Nestelhut is very unusual.
All the Nestlehutt's in the USA are related >from the
same family that immigrated >from Alsace Lorraine.

I would like to find out the connection to the family
in France.

Currently, I live in Copperas Cove, Texas but I am
originally >from the Atlanta, Georgia area.

I would be grateful for any suggestions or help.

Thank you,

Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive, # 85 #france

Ernest Kallmann
 

The last issue (# 85) is finally off the press. Here is the summary:

Pierre KATZ, the well-known Alsatian genealogist, has very recently left
all of us in sorrow. He was among many other feats, the finder of the
1808 name adoption lists and the author of their compilation, an
indispensable research tool for all those searching their ancestors in
Alsace and Lorraine.

FAMILIES

PASCAL FAUSTINI stresses the prominent role of Jewish entrepreneurs in
the iron industry during the 18th century in Sarre, transforming a
profitable craftsmanship into a real industry. They often became tenants
and managers of the smithies owned by the counts of Nassau-Saarbrücken
and so built up their wealth. Family trees of the main families involved
are shown as well as the connections between them.

MISCELLANEOUS

EVE-LINE BLUM cites several books by local historians (Dordogne,
Charente-Maritime) containing information about deportees and Shoah
victims that are not available at the Departement Archive. In another
section, she tells how she traced a family Greif deported in convoys 71
and 73 to Auschwitz thanks to several linked Internet correspondents.

ELIANE ROOS-SCHUHL analyzes the Schwindratzheim (Northern Alsace)
Memorbuch of 1786. The original manuscript is kept at the Jewish
Theological Seminary of America. She identifies the copyists and the
sponsorer Nephtali Hirtzel Jacob.

BERNARD LYON-CAEN tabulates and compares the data appearing in A. A.
Fraenckel's book and in the journal Bergha for the Jewish marriage
contracts in Uffholtz in the 18th century.

Philippe DANAN gives the list of the 148 Jews paying the wool tax in
Algiers in 1832 as published in the Moniteur Algerien in its March 1832
issue. This tax was levied on the indigenous Jews and Muslims. The
amount of the taxes sheds a light on the economic situation of the
Jewish community at the time.

RECENT EVENTS

GEORGES GRANER, in ">from the webmaster", details the uses of the search
engine available on our website since January 2006.

BASILE GINGER shows how the members of our society can be assisted when
searching for a naturalization docket.

Our library now hosts gravestone lists >from Jewish cemeteries in
France, compiled by various members, and the description of the content
of a CD-ROM about the Jewish communities of Bayonne and Saint-Esprit in
the 18th and early 19th centuries.

Re: Unwanted replies--and how to get the replies you want #general

HJB <hjb@...>
 

Going right along with this are the people who unwittingly report
genealogy message boards' email addresses as spam because they do not
understand how their anti-spam program works

my 2 cents,
Lisa Lepore
I may be misunderstanding exactly what Lisa refers to here. There are many
ISPs (mine included) which use SORBs and SpamCop lists to determine which
ISP's messages they will block. The unfortunate thing is that when Cogeco
does this I, as the receiver of email, have no idea that email is bouncing
back to the sender until one of these senders manages to contact me some
other way.

So far I don't believe that this has occurred with the JewishGen email list
or any of the SIG lists to which I subscribe, but this doesn't guarantee
that it won't happen in the future. No amount of talking or other tactics
will convince Cogeco to deal with the spam problem in some other way. I'm
sure that others face similar problems with their ISPs. I can only hope
that JewishGen email stays unaffected.

Selig, born Feb. 4, 1894 and Hania, born Apr. 10, 1897. Mother and children
moved to Antwerp Belgium probably before WWI where Fanny's sister (Kutner

Book on Galicia #galicia

Suzan & Ron Wynne <srwynne@...>
 

Many people who subscribe to this list have emailed me to ask about the
availability of my new book, The Galitzianers: The Jews of Galicia,
1772-1918. The book is now with the publisher's printer and should be ready
for shipment around May 9. I will be at the conference in New York and would
be happy to sign books there but I won't have a stock of books to
sell.....only ordering instructions. The publisher, Wheatmark, is taking
orders now. You can order online: http://www.wheatmark.com or, if you prefer
to order by phone, call 1 520 798-3306. The book is 524 pages. It is priced
at $34.95 plus shipping. I decided to go with paperback to keep the cost
down.

The book is about 2/3 new. It includes the list of towns with their main and
sub administrative districts >from the first book, with a number of additions
that came to my attention over the years. In this book, there is much more
about the history of how Galicia was formed and a detailed timeline of
important political, economic, and social events affecting all Galicians,
but particularly those who were Jewish. The new book includes much more
about the Jewish self-governing system mandated by the Austrian government,
daily Jewish life, population data, Galitzianer organizations
post-emigration, online resources for genealogical research, and a
completely new chapter on travel tips for Poland and Ukraine. It is
illustrated with maps, charts, and many photos.

I will be discussing the kehillah, the self governing system at the
conference in New York and hope to see many of you there.
