Unusual Surnames #belarus

Orrin Tilevitz <otilevitz@...>
 

Fran Segall asks whether everyone with the same unusual surname in the
same town was related, and whether a particular given name attached to
that surname described a unique person. Not necessarily. We found
someone with my gf's name in a city directory in an adjoining town, but
the profession was wrong and we think he was too young to have
established himself at that time. They could have been cousins, named
after the same person. And there were several families with ourunusual
surname in my gf's part of Belarus with, so far, no apparent relation to us.

Jewish Given Names - Yitzhak, Isaac #general

Robert Zavos <rzavos@...>
 

The recent discussions on Jewish given names (Yosef Dov, Dov Joseph) has
raised a few questions. I though I had seen a Web table of Jewish given
name frequencies for certain locations and/or time periods. Can anyone
direct me to this?

Also, I recently found my GGM's matzevah (died 1911 and buried in Pittsburgh
PA) and was a little surprised to see "Sarah Rebeka bat Yitzhak Isaac".
Even though both names are extremely common I have not seen the combination
very often. Any thoughts on why both versions are given in this case?

Passenger Manifest with Yiddish Actors #yiddish

David Harris <dorsharris@...>
 

In searching for the ship that brought Moses HOROWITZ (Yiddish
playwright) to New York in the mid 1880's, I came across the following
famous actors headed for the Yiddish theater on New York City's
Lower East Side:

The S.S. Alaska, Arrived >from Liverpool September 27, 1886
Passengers included
KESSLER, David (age 27)
MOGULESKO, Sigmund
BLANK, Lazar (Leon)
other actors and musicians, and in some cases, their families.
However, it did not include Moses Horowitz.

If members are searching for Yiddish theater personalities arriving in
America about that time, I would suggest seeking out the above manifest.

Another milestone! Another thank you! #usa

Susan E. King <susan.king@...>
 

As many of you are aware, the "behind the scenes" team has been working
tirelessly (and endlessly) to implement our Central User Registration
Environment (CURE) and fine-tuning all the elements in this huge project.
CURE will enable us to better manage all our back office systems and ensure
integration of all JewishGen programs and projects into one central system.

Would you believe that we are fast approaching the 100,000 mark in user
registrations to JewishGen? An awesome number for a community that started
with slightly more than 100 people and one computer just 18 short years ago!
Now, to enable us to meet the user demand we are running 10 servers in a 24/7
secure co-location facility. It truly boggles the mind!

As busy as we have been behind the scenes, I wanted to take a moment to thank
all the many hundreds of our world wide volunteers who have contributed so
greatly to making JewishGen a vital community and recognized leader in the
field of Jewish genealogy.

We applaud their efforts and their dedication and commitment to this
organization. To those who have blessed us with their financial support
over the years, please know we are ever so grateful! We could not have gotten
where we are today without you.

My personal thanks go out to all the JewishGen Vice Presidents, the SIG
Leaders and the JewishGen Board for their significant contributions,
commitment and dedication to the missions and goals of this organization.
With your help we have achieved yet another milestone in our development. We
look forward to using our new tools to create the building blocks for an even
greater and more efficient JewishGen in the months and years to come.

Susan King, President, JewishGen

INTRO - Seeking GRUNAUR - Cammin, Pommern > USA 1860s #germany

bspinner@...
 

I am researching a Jewish German family [GRUNAUR] who emigrated to the USA
in about the 1860s.
Would the (Kirchenbuch) church register (parish) records 1713-1850, of
Cammin, Pommern include records of this Jewish family's births and
marriages? I ask because the LDS has a microfilm of these exact registers.
Before I borrow the film, I would like to answer this question.

In England, the Established Church (of the State), was - in some centuries -
the only place where anybody could be married or buried. Hence people of
different religions are usually found in these parish registers, until after
a certain date when they were allowed to keep their own religious records
separately. Thank you,

Barry Spinner in Hamilton Ontario Canada

MOD NOTE: list of families being researched deleted because family names
were not typed in ALL CAPS.

Seek dates of Holocaust death -LOEWENSTEIN & BARUCH #germany

Elizabeth Levy <ealevygen@...>
 

Dear Friends,
We lost many people in the Holocaust, some of whom we know what happened,
others not.
I am looking for more information - particularly date of death - for the
following persons. Maybe someone has a list or information that would be
helpful....

1. Elli (geb. WALLACH) LOEWENSTEIN (b. 1909), her husband, Siegmund
LOEWENSTEIN, and their young son, Bernd LOEWENSTEIN (b. 1938), last living
in Frankfurt/Main, and presumably shot to death in the Kaiserwald near Riga.

2. Emilie or Emmy (geb. KATZ) BARUCH (b. 1890), her husband, Julius
BARUCH, and their two kids: Kurt and Ruth. Emmy was born in Flieden,
Hessen and Julius was >from Bergheim/Waldeck.

3. Jonny (Yonny) BARUCH (son of Julius >from his previous marriage to Bella
KATZ BARUCH, sister of Emmy). Lived in Berheim/Waldeck. Thanks.

Elizabeth Levy Mevassaret Zion

MOD NOTE: For archive search reasons, you should include at least one spelling
of the name as LOWENSTEIN (0 umlaut).

Re: SUFRIN family from Munchen/Munich #germany

petiealznauer@earthlink.net <petiealznauer@...>
 

For some time now I have intended to post and let people know that I have
the City Directory (Stadtbuch) for Munchen (Munich), Germany >from the year
1934. I bought it at an antiquariat dealer in Munich in 1985 or 86 when I
was a graduate student at the university.

In the frontispiece there is a full page photo of the Reichschancellor,
and his home address, telephone and occupation are listed inside
along with Thomas Mann, the Nobel prize winning author and other worthier Germans.

I would be glad to look up information on the SUFRIN and any other
individuals or families >from this directory BUT I cannot do it right now
because the directory is in storage until I finish having my apartment renovated.

Please email me privately for more information.
