<< I am looking for the following book:
Geschichte der familie Schor

This book is listed in David Zubatsky's "Sourcebook for Jewish Genealogies
and Family Histories" (Avotaynu, 1996). It is also known as "Sefer Toldoth
Mishpahath Schor." Yes, I. Kaufmann was the publisher. Copies can be found
in the U.S. Library of Congress and the Cleveland, Ohio, Public Library.

Zubatsky lists several other books that contain information about the Schor
family. (No guarantee that it's the right one, of course.) For instance,
"Ateret Tiferet Israel," by Wolf Kratuschinsky, published in Vienna in 1883,
contains an incomplete genealogy of Israel Schor (1823-1899). Unfortunately,
Zubatsky neglects to say where this book can be found.

Zubatsky's sourcebook, which is organized by surname, is well worth
consulting by every Jewish genealogist.

You will find out if others are interested when you ask them to help
with expenses. We in the Pikholz Project have been surprised at who
responded and who didn't.

Re: Family disinterest #general

Joyce Eastman <wldwoman@...>
 

Family disinterest can sometimes be misinterpreted and can be caused by the
fact that they don't want to remember bad memories. This was the case of my
father before he died. He never stopped feeling guilty for being unable to
save his sister and mother before he left Vienna, Austria to come to the US.
I was finally able to get a minimal amount of information >from him. Don't
give up trying to get information >from relatives, and try to get what you
can while they are still alive. However, sometimes the memory of those who
are cooperative and enthusiastic is not exactly 100% either. Be sure to
verify whatever information you do get - particularly >from those who are
elderly.

The younger generation of my family is very supportive and interested in
whatever information I pass on to them. I still have one elderly relative
left, and am trying to obtain whatever information I can get >from him.
Unfortunately, he is in Israel and without e-mail, so the going is very
slow. However, he is very interested in whatever information I can share
regarding my research.

As was stated by someone else, this is "your" hobby. Do not expect others
to have the enthusiasm you have. However, I have been able to interest
acquaintances to possibly start their own "dig for information" in their
families by showing enthusiasm for my hobby.

Where is Britschewo #general

mario_m@...
 

Shalom

While searching the Hamburg Passenger lists on-line, I encountered an
entire SCHECHTMANN family going to Buenos Aires. The Place of residence
was given as Britschewo Russia. The ShtettleSchlepper was no help as I
got too many results.

Two questions: When the form says Russia, does it mean it or can it be
also Ukraine Bellarus and so forth? We think our family came >from Ukraine,
can someone give us a _definite_ answer to the above name in the Ukraine?

Thanks

Origin of First name:Mentain, in E Prussia #general

Vernon Kronenberg <vkronenb@...>
 

An elderly colleague of mine has an ancestor Mentain/Mantayn endelsohn
who lived in Schneidermuhl in E Prussia.

Q1. I have searched the archives and find no mention of the first name
Mentain. Can anybody provide any information about it. pls?
Q2. StetlSeeker does not have a Schneidermuhl listed although there are 3
references to this site, one of them suggesting it is now in Poznan
province. Stetlseeker now offers "Chendremal" as a town in Romania, 360Km
NW of Bucharest. Is this the former Schneidermuhl?

Re: Berdichev Yizkor Book #ukraine

Gene Starn <genes17@...>
 

Steve, I just returned home following a trip up North (which kept me stranded
for 10-1/2 hours in the Buffalo blizzard as I was approaching the Peace Bridge
to Canada) and found your e-mail about a Berdichev Yizkor book in Hebrew.
That will be easier to translate than the 90-page Yiddish book of 1870 which
I've given to two Yiddish translaters. Incidentally, I'll call tomorrow or
Tuesday
to see how their work is progressing. But send me the Hebrew version. I
have a Hebrew scholar who can do that one.
