Attention Choroszcz, Poland Researchers #general

Willie46@...
 

The Jewish Records Indexing - Poland (JRI-PL) database has recently been
updated to incorporate Birth indices for Choroszcz for years 1882-1892.
These 252 birth records were added as a result of the JRI-PL / Polish
State Archives (PSA) initiative at the Bialystok Archives. These are the
only records for Choroszcz that reside at the Bialystok Branch of the PSA.
To learn more about the Bialystok Archive project go to
< http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/psastat1.htm#Bialy >. Then click on
"Project Details" for more information.

The database can be searched by surname at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/jriplweb.htm >. If the search is
successful, you can order the original record directly >from the PSA.
Special instructions for ordering documents >from PSA can be accessed at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/psainst.htm >.

JRI-PL hopes that this data will be helpful to all Choroszcz researchers.

Re: MONDINO #general

chizz@...
 

MONDINO is a name listed in the Consolidated Jewish Surname Index. To
see this and other variants go to:
http://www.avotaynu.com/csi/csi-home.html and place the name to search.
You will see a few other names with the same soundex code. You can
then follow to the links provided below the names. Does that make it a
jewish name? No it does not; But it was a name used by some jews. In
the U.S. the third most popular surname of jews is MILLER and certainly
is not an exclusively "jewish name".
Good luck,

Re: Is Shmuel Sender like Dov Ber? #general

In other words, if one document says someone is Sender and another says
Shmuel, are they probably the same person? I searched the archives on
this and couldn't find anything.>>

Dear genners,
Ber is the German word for the Hebrew name Dov (in English: a Bear).

Shemuel is a Hebrew biblical name . Sender is a nickname to the Greek
name Alexander a name that is adopted as a "Shem Kodesh" a holy name
when you are calling to the Tora. So Dov-Ber is the same name , a name
with his nickname and Shemuel and Sender are two separated names.

It can be that it is the same person with the double name Shemuel Sender.
But if you said that in the archives you find on different documents
different names, one time Shemuel and one time Sender and you never find
the double name Shemuel Sender than be careful with you conclusion that
it is the same person.

Links from metrical records? #lithuania

Morton and Esther Cohen <cohenme@...>
 

The discussion in the Digest for Thursday, March 16, 2000. detailing the
format of metrical records was most informative. A follow on question:

Are these several metrical records, in separate log books. linked in some
fashion. i.e. does finding a specific individual in a Tax list make it
possible for the archives to extend >from this record to other records such
as birth, marriages, etc ?

~~~~~~~
I'll take a shot at metrical records, which were used in Litvakland under
the Russian Empire. The records were kept in log books. For example, I
obtained records >from the Lithuanian State Historical Archives (LVIA) that
were copied >from separate books of births, marriages, deaths, for the
Panevezys Jewish community. A stamp on the outside of the copy of one
record has lines for Fondas, Aprasas, Metai, Byla, and Lapas, and
underneath is written Panevezys.

This corresponds to the Russian Empire's archival system which is
different >from ours. They used fond (a record group), opus (an inventory
number) and delo (item number) to file everything. If you have the fond,
opus and delo numbers, any archivist can find the original document in the
archives. The numbers on a particular record that I received were Fondas
(fond)1226, Aprasas (opus) 1, Metai 1885 (the year of the record), Byla
(delo)1309, Lapas 196 #86. The latter information tells what page and line
my particular record is located. This is verifiable by looking on the copy
of the log sheet itself, where the page number is stamped in the upper
right corner and the line is numbered on the left side of each half of the
log sheet.

Re: Birthright #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

Dear members,
I have a genuine theological question,please ,as I have never been given a
straight"Yeah or Nay"-only a lot of "don't know for sure" answers.
In the light of this,much abounded recent nonsense on religion an culture,
via a harmless,friendly and jocular e-mail,that is clogging up the
airwaves of late,if a non-Jewish female marries a Jewish male, bears
children at a later date and then decides to convert to Judaism,are the
children regarded as Jewish, by all,if any,of the different(for the use
of a better term)"synagogue movements"? Which branch would sanctify and
which branch wouldn't?
The traditional rule (followed by Orthodox and Conservative branches) is
that unless the mother has converted previously, the child is not
considered a Jew. The Reform and Reconstructionist branches now accept
the patrilineal as well as the matrilineal principle, provided the children
are being raised as Jews and consider themselves Jews.

Would the same apply to the Catholic,faith where the father's religion is
regarded as the one to follow?Following on >from that,does this question
arise within the other major religions?
In Christianity and Islam, the ethnicity or religious beliefs of the
parents are irrelevant. If the child is baptised at birth and confirmed in
the Church when old enough to understand, that's all it takes. There's no
specific ethnic element in Catholicism. In fact, there's no specific ethnic
element, paternal or maternal, in Christianity or Islam, though there is in
Zoroastrianism, which is the fourth member of the "western monotheistic"
group of religions. (Yes, Zoroastrianism does still exist, though its
numbers have dwindled to about 250,000 due to the fact that it never
developed procedures for conversion, so that it has remained strictly
ethnic, i.e. you have to be born into it. I think there are about 20,000
Zoroastrians living in the USA.)

MODERATOR NOTE: While the cultural and ethnic transmission of Judaism does
indeed relate to genealogy, discussions of Jewish law and the practices of
other religions are not the focus of this group. Please continue this
discussion privately.
