Since so many responses contradict, please do _not_ summarize and post it
to the list. I for one, much prefer to determine what the best summary
might be for the query. Regards, Carol Raspler,

Where was Hoch Deutsche spoken ? #general

kalang@...
 

Hello -

In a letter I received recently >from a cousin, she says that her
grandparents (my great-gp's) spoke Hoch Deutsche or High German. Is
there a specific part of Germany that this dialect refers to ? Was it
spoken in other countries, as well. They didn't speak Yiddish if that
helps narrow the area.

Thanks,

Searching SCHATZ-Long Island #general

Carol Levie <clevie@...>
 

Dear Genners:

I'm trying to find the sons of a Rabbi (Maurice?) SCHATZ. Lived in
Huntington, NY sometime in the 1960s. The two sons, Fred and Jon, would
be in their early fifties. In the early 1970s, Fred was living in the
Greater Boston area, and Jon in NYC.

I've tried the various phone/address lookups and written to likely
candidates, but have had no response.

If anyone has this family on a tree, or knows the whereabouts of these
gentlemen, please let me know.

Thanks,

Carol Levie

Yiddish translation #lithuania

Stanley Gilinsky <Gilinsky@...>
 

I am looking for someone to translate a letter written in Yiddish. This
letter was written to my father in 1931 >from Ignalina, Lithuania. It is an 8 page hand written letter.

I tried last August on this SIG and although I did receive offers to
translate, none have come to fruition.

If you are a Litvak fluent in Yiddish script and can help me, please email
me and I will post you a copy of the letter.

Ribuk (Ribuka), Lithuania #lithuania

Neil Botel <nbotel@...>
 

Recently, I discovered a letter written by my grandfather, Alex Rubin
(born Elya Rabinowitz), whose family and that of my grandmother Goldie
(born Olga Gin) lived in Ribuk (present-day Ribuka), Lithuania. The
letter states that the town consisted of about a dozen or so Jewish
families, all of whom were related by blood or marriage.

According to my grandfather, the town was established sometime in the early to mid-19th century by, among others, two of my great-great-great grandfathers, Nehemiah Rabinowitz and Nehemiah Abramovitz after land-grants to them and others in that region by the Tsar.

I would be very pleased to hear >from the descendants of any of the families of that town or anyone with information about the town and its inhabitants.

I have two photos of wedding parties which were likely taken in Ribuk
shortly after WWI and would be happy to share them with anyone who
believes they may be able to find relatives therein. I would certainly
like to identify the members of these wedding parties, most of whom are
unknown to members of my family.

If you suspect you may have ancestors >from Ribuk, I would suggest doing
a search of the HaMelitz database, entering "Ribuk" as the search word.
Issue #224 contains perhaps 15 family names, all of whom presumably
attended a wedding there in 1903.

most especially about a GOLDSCHMIDT family. I'm trying to
