TAUROG family #latvia

David Horwitz <Dhorwitz@...>
 

Hello All,

I am busy researching my Latvian ancestry notable the TAUROG's of Riga.
I have had some success through information and contacts made through
Jewish gen. I would appreciate hearing >from anyone researching related
liniages. I would be especially interested in hearing of anyone
researching GERTZAMIL family. A photograph in my possession indicates
that my g-g Aunt Bertha TAUROG married a Dr GERTAZAMIL who worked for
the Russian Military, the photograph would also indicate that they had
at least 1 child.

For those interested I have posted a copy of the family tree at:
http://www.meg.uct.ac.za/dhorwitz/geneology/taurog/Default.htm

Regards

David Horwitz

Also researching: FRIEDLANDER, BERLINER, HORWITZ

New York City Public School Records: record search #general

David Priever <David_Priever@...>
 

Dear Fellow Jewishgenners,

As many of you may know, I am a substitute teacher on the Lower East Side
of New York. Our district is bounded by 14th St on the north, the East
River on the east, 4th Ave on the west and South St. on the south. The
principal of one school has given me permission to inform everyone who may
have an interest that he will allow me to personally search the records
for others during my non-teaching time (lunch, after-school).

If you have requests and for more information, please email me privately
at: priever@...

Depending on the number of requests (and I am aware there may be many), it
can take anywhere >from a few days to weeks for a response.

The school record can give you the addresses a student lived at, their
birthplace if outside the U.S. and, if in New York, their certificate
number. I have seen the condition of these records, which in many cases
are very brittle.

An article was printed in Genealogical Resources in the New York City
Metropolitan Area, edited by Estelle Guzik.

Sincerely,

David Priever

We are looking for some Galician records which may be in Uzhgorod.
Does anyone have experience trying to get records them by
correspondence. Considering that it's in present day Ukraine, but
quite close to Hungary, Slovakia and Rumania, what are our chances
to communicate with them efficiently in English or Polish?

Re: Kabbalah in 19th Century Belarus #belarus

david garth <ynep@...>
 

Joseph,

The popularity of Kabbalah can be approximately observed by studying
the popularity of Chasidism.

Simply (and probably over-simply) put, what's now Belarus (White Russia)
was part of the old Kingdom of Lithuania. The Jews of this area
("Litvaks"), and their religious and civil leadership, were relatively
hostile towards Chasidism, which they regarded as an anti-intellectual
and often sacrilegious movement. Chasidism was much more popular in
Poland (especially in the south) and Hungary.

There were, however, exceptions. The most notable of these is the
Lubavitcher Chasidim (known also as Chabad), who originate in Belarus.

Warszawa Cemetery #poland

Hadassah Lipsius <kesher@...>
 

Micah writes

I believe the cemetery has separate sections for men and women. My sister
had thought of that one or perhaps a family plot. But since there seems to
just be a few Malis graves and the cemetery had been vandalized during WW
II
as well as natural overgrowth, trees, shifting of the land, etc. some
graves
that might have been there before are no longer accounted for, to the best
of my knowledge.
I did come across a section in a book at my local synagogue all about the
Warsaw Jewish cemeteries. Does anyone out there know for sure that there
were separate burials?

The answer to the question, were there separate sections for men and women
in the Warszawa Okopowa Cemetery is YES.

The answer to the question, were there family plots in the Warszawa Okopowa
Cemetery, where men and women were buried together is YES.

If you know the section number where your family member was buried then you
can probably tell if it is the men's section, women's section or mixed.
If you check out the JRI-Poland Warszawa Cemetery website, there is a
link to the cemetery map. Under the map is a description and the second
paragraph states.

"Just by identifying the cemetery section and the type of headstone you can
discover more about your family. Orthodox Jews had separate sections for
men and women and only Hebrew lettering will be found on the stone. The
more assimilated Jews were buried in family plot sections and had
headstones with Polish lettering and Gregorian dates. "
