RICHTER, WILDER and GOTTESMAN families in Austria #general

Jslevey@...
 

Hi all,

I was fortunate to be able to find information about my greatgrandparents on
familysearch.org today. It's still lacking, but I've been so fortunate in
finding other family information that I'm going to post this and give it a try.

My great grandfather Abraham RICHTER was born in Austria. My father believes
he was >from Vienna. His father's name was Beril and his mother's name was
Male GOTTESMAN. He married Sadie WILDER in NYC on February 7, 1905. Sadie was
also born in Austria, but the site doesn't say what city or town and nobody in
my family seems to know. She had a sister Rose and another sister Tillie.
Her father's name is listed as Schulym Gezel, and her mother's name is listed
as Maly Bar..uhut.

I'm going to add these names on JGFF and I will post to the Austrian-Czech
list as well. If anyone has any ideas as to where else I might look, or if
anyone might even know something about any of these people/families, please feel
free to drop me a line.

I want to say that I am so pleasantly surprised that I have found so much
information so soon, and I am getting ready to get a family tree program to
enter in all this info, and to post or upload the results I have achieved thus
far.

Thank you,

Janette Levey Frisch

Estelle,

You may be interested to know that New Road still exists today
(though I'm sure that #46 has long since gone). It runs north to
south >from Whitechapel Road to Commercial Road.

new Hungarian Jewish database on the Internet #hungary

Andras Koltai <kolamcg@...>
 

Dear All,

After long preparations, my database with some 10,000
Hungarian Jewish names is online now. It contains the
list of the people buried in the Jewish cemetery in
Szeged, names >from different publications >from the
late 19th century, etc. When available, we have also

small fee. Please check the website for further
information.

I have also uploaded a long list of publications onto
the website. Please feel free to check them out to see
what material is available in Hungarian libraries
which would help genealogists in their research.

The url is www.jewishroots.hu - the database is on the
Names site, the list of publication can be found under

Bridging past 18th century surname changes #austria-czech

Michael Gordy <michaelgordy@...>
 

In early June, Jan Hellman shared with us information
on Kocman's recent Judaica Bohemiae articles on tax
listings for Jews in Moravian towns around 1669-71.
For those of us working on Moravia, these articles are
quite extraordinary.

When I looked at the list for my own favorite little
town -- Straznice (near Hodonin),-- I got quite a
surprise. The list was long, roughly 40 heads of
household. At least half of the people listed had
surnames in the modern sense (as opposed to a name
like "Davidt Moyses," which I imagine is probably
"David son of Moses"). But the surnames had hardly
any overlap at all with the surnames found in
Straznice in the early 19th century. We know the 19th
century Straznice surnames quite well >from a variety
of sources.

Two possibilities strike me:
(1) the 17th century families moved out and were
replaced by an entirely new set of families, or
(2) the existing families changed surnames with the
reforms of the mid 18th century.

At least by the 19th century, the Straznice Jewish
community was extraordinarily stable -- one sees the
same surnames over and over for 100 years. If this
was true earlier on, then (2) is more likely than (1).

And so I come to my questions: First, can anyone shed
more evidence on which story is most likely to be
true? Second, if changing of surnames was widespread
in 18th century Moravia, then are there any data
sources that would help us bridge the gap between the
old names and the new? Ideally, we would have surname
adoption records that would show both the old name and
the new name for a family.

Re: Hugo Gold's Bohemia & Moravia books #austria-czech

Sharla Levine <austriaczech@...>
 

I have a copy of Hugo Gold's book on Moravia and would be happy to provide
the table of contents to anyone who wants to undertake a similar project of
creating a spreadsheet of the towns covered.

This volume is of similar size to the Bohemia volume - over 600 pages, plus
the statistical chapter and an index. There are approximately 80 chapters or
subchapters. Most chapters are about a town, but a few are about
individuals. The book is primarily in German, but there is a smattering of
Czech.

As Celia says, translating these books is a massive undertaking that would
require many, many hours and thus some considerable expense. That is why we
initially chose to start with the Moravia volume (also we thought we'd have
more success getting German translated than Czech) when we set it up as a
Yizkor Book project. If you care to contribute toward the project, please
visit
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
where the project is listed as "Moravia - Yizkor Book."

Thanks to Susan Boyer - another fantastic volunteer - I have the
Bohemia book which has been of great help to me.

I must tell Vera, and everyone else though, that the contents give no
idea of the language of the chapters. Each chapter [and there are
about 253 chapters - two hundred and fifty three!] just has as a
title - the *place name*.

Finally there is a statistical chapter in Czech at the end
p. 729-733

The best approach would be to make an Excel file and then post the
results on our website:

< snip >

Any translation project would be massive and I cannot see how this
can realistically be done by us. I hope I am wrong. Perhaps a few
key places should be targeted first?

My grandfather’s family's SILKNIT clothing factory (I have the address.) was
totally destroyed during the Blitz. Would World War Two air raid warden

are there any other records I should examine? Where can I find them?

Re: [British Jewry] Looking 46 New Rd Whitechapel #unitedkingdom

Estelle Wolfers <Estelle@...>
 

Dear Hazel,

The inhabitants of 46 New Road in 1891 were a Tvitez family
(according to the transcriber - I can't do any better as the
enumerator's handwriting is awful), plus various cousins, visitors
and boarders. I suspect it was a small boarding-house, which is why
your Aronsons appear not to be there. If you want to find the page,
look up Henry Chapman born in Ranby, Wiltshire. He was the
inhabitant of number 50 and did not move between 1881 (which you can
search on the address) and 1891.

Good luck, Estelle
