Re: Receipt of Jewish Vital Records of Quebec #general

This is a follow-up to my April 9th posting regarding my request for copies
of the records >from the Drouin Microfilm Indexing Project of Jewish Vital
Records of Quebec.

I want to let all of you who were interested know that I did receive email
apologies and explanations for the delayed response which was understandable.
In the end, the records and additional information I received were worth the
wait.

HavIng read the Avotaynu Summer 2002 article on the Indexing of the Jewish
Vital Records of Quebec 1841-1942, I am in awe of the efforts of Ruth and
Stanley Diamond and do appreciate all of the work involved in putting this
together.

By the way, with the ROSNER surname printout I received >from Alan Greenberg,
I have just sent in my request for 4 additional records and my Montreal ROSNER
tree is growing!!

Regards to all.

Re: Yiddish name Farla #general

Speaking of names that Cantors don't know, my mother in law claims her
Jewish name is Farla or Farle, I've asked her if she means Perl but she says
it's Farla, name in English is Florence. Has anyone ever heard of this
name?

Re: Yiddish name Shayva #general

We genealogists sure have our work cut out for us.

Our young cousin is Chone Gutel, named for his grandfather. When he went to
Hebrew school, they too told his mother no such name. I had to pull out the
family tree to show that the earliest recorded Gutel in the family was born
in 1813, and we have a record. There are several men named Chone in the
family, who were nicknamed Honey, but no ancestral Chone. So we know we're
missing someone >from the tree.

Their are several Zlatas in our extended families, all known as Lottie.

Re: Yiddish name Shayva #general

Sheva is most certainly a name. Old Ashkenazim would pronounce it Shave-a,
but most Hebrew speakers otday use the Sephardi pronunciation, so it would
be pronunced Shev-a. Not all sources agree that the source of the name is a
diminutive for Bat-Sheva or Elisheva. Some trace it to Sheva, the number
seven, which has a lot of mystical, spiritual, metaphysical and traditional
significance in Judaism.
I apologize on behalf of cantors everywhere.

All the Best,

For those of you interested in the surname STEINHARDT in its different
spellings, I am pleased to announce that I have added today to my site a
new page about the STEINHARDT's of Flonheim (Germany)
my STEINHAR(D)Ts originate >from Steinhart, Bavaria but my ancestor went to
live as a great rabbi in Alsace, then in Fuerth, Bav.
So I do not think we are related, or are we ? I do not know Flonheim.

It was written in French... Raphael’s birth record confirms that French
was the language of Flonheim when Samuel and Gertrude Steinhardt lived there
at the beginning of this family branch (...) in the year 1814,
Emperor Napoleon I created those French departments in Germany and imposed
French law there, which was very good for the Jews, till his fall in 1815
when the German reaction prevailed against them.

so no surprise if the documents are written in French.

best regards to you, even if we are not cousins...

Interesting website on philatelic resources #romania

Susanna Vendel <svendel@...>
 

I came accross a very interesting website on Judaica philatelic resources.
The website is divided in 2: one about the Synagogues in different
countries and one
about the Holocaust.
There are some pictures of romanian synagogues.

The part treating the Holocaust contains many post-cards >from different
concentration camps
and ghettos. The view of the cards can be enlarged so one can easily read
the content and see the
names.
The address is: http://www.edwardvictor.com

I am looking for information re the shtetl of Smolyany ,lat 54N,long 30 E ,

My grandparents,Lubavicher Rabbi Zorach Hurwitz(Gurwitz) and his wife
Chassia(Rabinovich)lived in this shtetl toward the end of the 19th
centuryand early 20th century with their 6 children Nathan,Goldie,Sarah,

grandparents and family emmigrated to America in 1905-1906.The family
settled in Worcester,Mass. where my grandfather was Rabbi of the Sons of
Jacob synogogue until1944.
There seems to be little information available about Smolyany .I am unable
to find any Yizkor book listed in its name.In my search I have found some
information >from the 1897 census listing a jewish population of 1,704 of a
total of 2,278 inhabitants .A fairly small number of families are listed
along with my posting in the Family Finder registry. Thus far there have
been no significant connections. I am caught in a mystery.Was this an
isolated community?Were centers of learning in the Lubavitcher tradition
nearby?
So many of you are so well informed. I would appreciate any information you

Kraselnick Search #belarus

Raeus Cannon <raeus@...>
 

I am searching for KRASELNICK/KRASILNIK (and various other spellings) from
Grodno. My gg grandmother arrived in the US in 1896...my gg grandfather
arriving approximately 3 years prior to that. I have found an amazing amount
of information about them in the US, however, I am not having any success in
finding anything in their home country (Belarus).
Can anyone give me some hints on what/where to look for information >from the
mid 1800's. It seems everything I've found on KRASELNICK/KRASILNIK is after
my family arrived in the US.
On my gg grandmother's passenger record it is written that she reported her
home town as "Lunik" but I have been unable to find any town that fits that.
(Lunna seems to be the best, but have found no records of family there as of
yet.)
I would specifically like to find marriage records, birth records (for the 4
sons that traveled with my gg grandmother) >from the old country.
There is a family story that says that my gg grandfather was jailed just
prior to leaving for the US because his older brother escaped conscription
in the army. Are there records that might back up this story?

Thank you in advance for your help.
