LAZARUS in Appenheim and Nieder-Olm #germany

Richard Welch <rwelch@...>
 

Thanks to some very generous help >from Hanna Goldmann >from near Köln, we
have a possible connection between Hyman LAZARUS who settled in Ohio in 1818
and his early life in Germany. Can anyone confirm or add to any of the
following information that might prove or disprove the connection?

There was a Hermann LAZARUS in Appenheim who was listed as a fruit dealer in
1807. I was told that Hermann MIGHT be a (non-Jewish) German form of the
name Hyman. Can anyone confirm that?

There is a Hayum LAZARUS listed in a Nieder-Olm document, now in the State
Archives in Darmstadt, with the year 1779 following his name. Possibly a
birth record? Both of these villages are very near to Mainz in
Rheinland-Pfalz.

Could these individuals be Hyman LAZARUS, born ca. 1776-1780 in Germany who
immigrated to the United States on the ship "John Watson", landing at
Philadelphia >from Liverpool on November 29, 1816? His name is listed on the
Baggage List as Hayman LAZARUS. Did Hyman have relatives in England who might have
put him up while he was earning money for his passage to North America?

Hyman LAZARUS was financed by Jewish merchants in Philadelphia upon his
arrival in North America and he sold goods as a foot peddler for about 1 1/2
years until he settled in Malta, Morgan County, Ohio where he opened a small
store (the county history mentions that he sold fruit -- a possible
connection to Hermann LAZARUS who sold fruit in Appenheim in 1807?).

Hyman and his wife also operated a saloon in later years -- a very
interesting establishment in a tough river town, but by 1850 he had sold the
store/saloon and in the census that year he said he was a tailor. Hyman said
in the 1850 census that he was born in Germany and the county history in the
1880s ridicules his German-Jewish accent, but right now those are the only
confirmations I have that he was >from Germany. Hyman died in Malta, Ohio in
February of 1851. There was no obituary in the local newspaper and I have
never been able to find his burial place during more than forty years of
searching. He married Frances Permelia Secord and I am descended >from their
first daughter, Caroline (1826-1899).

There are other descendants of Caroline who have joined in this search and
we all will welcome any help or suggestions that might help in this quest.

Kitchener Camp Journals [Sandwich, Kent, U.K.] #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

The People's Museum is a series on BBC Television which is constructing
a virtual museum: http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/

At the end of every hour-long programme, the audience votes on which of
four very diverse objects should be placed in the museum.

Yesterday, to my surprise, one of the objects was the humble-looking
"Kitchener Camp Review" and today I heard that it had won [I had voted
for it and asked other UK siggers to join me!]. The Journals now have a
place in the virtual museum.

I would like to think that our SIG played a part in this success.

see http://tinyurl.com/hp785 to read about Kitchener's Camp which housed
many refugees >from the geographic area covered by our SIG.

We cannot see much of their contents on the internet so hopefully one
day they will be scanned. If not, we will have to travel to the Guildhall
Museum, Sandwich to look at them:

How a Jewish soldier in the Austrian army obtains the right to marry in the 1860s. #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

What happened when a Jewish soldier >from far-flung parts of the Habsburg
Empire [Bohemia, Moravia, Hungary, Galicia etc] stationed in Vienna in the
1860s, wished to marry? This question might be impossible to answer today
unless we unearth some "Rules and Regulations" in a military handbook about
just such a situation.

By a stroke of luck, we have circumvented this first research stage because
of a document I have found on the internet. This "permission to marry"
document is important so I hope many of you will have a look at it at
http://tinyurl.com/gbkfw
I presume the same bureaucratic formalities applied to a soldier stationed
anywhere away >from his home town or village.

It is a document dated 23 April 1867 granting permission to marry to
Wolf Isaak STEIN >from Stanislau, Galicia. Wolf was probably born about
1840-1845. The owner of the document appeared unable to read the word
*Stanislau* which is missing >from the description. Wolf is obviously still
"zustandig" [resident] in Stanislau.

Wolf was stationed in Vienna and was a member of the K. und K. Wiener
Invaliden Commando and was an Invaliden Zugsfuhrer - in the Austrian Army
a "Zugsfuhrer" [with umlaut on the U] was a platoon leader. What exactly
was the Wiener K. und K. Invaliden Commando? I believe it meant that the
fathers of the soldiers in this regiment had been wounded in action - if
you can read German, search for *Invaliden* here:

http://tinyurl.com/fbq82

The military authorities had received the permission to marry >from the
Magistrat in Stanislau and the permit is numbered 1301 and dated 13th of ???
[possibly April?].

They now give the go-ahead and there are two signatories to the permit.
The bride is named as Magdalena DEUTSCH [described as single and an adult].
The only proviso is that the usual formalities [three prounouncements of
marriage and no objections] are complied with. Also, Magdalena must renounce
all rights to military benefits according to Article Two ... {nach dem
zweiten Militar Artikel]. The marriage can then proceed according to
Jewish rites.

This raises other questions:
1. Was this renunciation demanded >from all brides or only Jewish brides?
What exactly were the benefits she renounced - pensions etc?
2. Did Wolf marry in a synagogue in Vienna? If so, his marriage should be
registered at the Israelitische Kultusgemeinde [IKG] and we should be able
to find it.
3. Alternatively Wolf married Magdalena on home-leave.
4. Perhaps there were special facilities for Jewish members of the K. und K.
forces to marry with rabbis seconded to the forces?
5. As Wolf Isaak served in a K. und K. Wiener Invaliden Regiment, one might
assume that his family resided in Vienna.

These are all unanswered questions, but if we assiduously chip away at
these problems we will hopefully get a clearer idea of the bureacratic
complexities of such a marriage.

The military archives in Vienna now charge quite hefty fees. This is of
course a major disincentive for anyone wishing to carry out purely academic,
exploratory research. I am not sure if queries related to the above research
would be exempted >from the fees mentioned above. For example, the Military
Archives in Vienna should be able to answer Question 1 above - that would
be a useful start. What exactly is Article Two?

Seeking descendants of Prague EPSTEIN Family for Y-DNA Study #austria-czech

Itzhak Epstein
 

Several EPSTEINs have joined in a Family Tree DNA JewishGen surname
project. Painless mouth swab genetic testing procedures are being
used as a promising tool for breaking through our genealogical
brick walls. It might help you to greatly expand your family tree,
and may also help our surname project.

To the best of our knowledge, the EPPSTEINs emerged in Frankfurt am Main
in the early 15th century. By the mid 17th century we were present in
Poland. It is still unclear whether the Polish/Russian EPSTEINs are=
descended
from the Frankfurt EPPSTEINs. The most prominent 16th century EPSTEINs
were in Prague, and it is likely that they are the bridge between the
Frankfurt EPPSTEINs and the Polish EPSTEINs. To find out, we need to test
direct male decendents of the historic Prague EPSTEINs.

We have identified members of one paternal lineage that has borne the
Epstein surname for several centuries. There are hints of another old line.
Most of the project's current members, however, are patrilineally
unrelated to each other. In addition, most of us have discovered
patrilineal relationships to men whose surnames are not EPSTEIN. Most
of us trace our ancestry to eastern Europe, and only two to Germany.

We are working on identifying the various branches of our principal cluster,
on exploring additional clusters, and on connecting our unrelated
members to cousins. To accomplish these goals and to create as broad
a search as possible, we need more male Epsteins to contribute a
cheek swab as a DNA sample. If you are female EPSTEIN or an EPSTEIN
through female ancestors, a sample >from an EPSTEIN male relative can
represent your family in the test. If you are not an EPSTEIN, please share
this message with EPSTEINs who may want to participate in this project.

To join, go to
http://www.familytreedna.com/surname_join.asp?code=3DR56553&special=3Dtrue
or http://tinyurl.com/pg2kv

The basic, and most affordable, twelve marker test will indicate to whom
you are probably related. The more advanced tests could help to identify
closer and more certain relationships. You can start with the 12 marker test
and add to it at a later date, using the same sample.

If you have any questions, please contact Marsha Epstein, our project's
volunteer administrator at epsteindna_admin@...

ROZMBERK is the Czech spelling for Rosenberg. They were quite a powerful
family in the 14th and 15th centuries in both Western and Southern Bohemia.
However, I don't know how generally prevalent the name was so I'm not sure
whether is was also prevalent among the not so powerful. If you let me know

a $15 fee (which includes a 1 year search) payable by money order or
certified cheque. I assume that this means there is no ablility for us to
search on our own.

Pre-1950 records are kept at the
Municipal Archives.
According to their website
http://www.nyc.gov/html/records/html/vitalrecords/home.shtml marriage
records at the Municipal Archives are only available to 1930. In person
searches are possible. The fee for a reader is $5 for the day with a $10
fee if you want a certificate printed. You can use your computer on site..
I asked. They do mention that not all marriages were registered.

The marriage records for NY City are kept at two
separate agencies. Post-1950 records are kept at the
City Clerk's office.
The City Clerk's office is located at the Municipal Building, 1 Centre
Street, 2nd Floor South, New York, NY 10007, phone (212) 669-2400. Their
