Dear Rose.

I would like to thank you for bringing us the beautiful pictures >from the
convention.
I was not able to attend to the conference due to my health, and in the only
few times which I came, I forgot to bring my camera. Now I can see my table
in the vendor room, with the placates which I designed specially for the
conference.

I agree with Sylvia Nusinov's request for the names to match the
photos included at http://www.isragen.org.il/NROS/INF/2004conf.html

I have never been able to attend any of the conferences and probably never
will unless it were to be held in the Scarborough area of Maine. As Sylvia
has already said, it would be so satisfying to put a face to the names of
the people who have helped us over these many years at JewishGen.

Thanks to all of you.

Re: Musha and Masha #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

Kreina Musha, sometimes listed as Musha Kreina, was always explained
to me as "Crown of Moshe."
Dear Schelly,

That explanation seems highly implausible! No such concept exists
in Jewish tradition, and besides, Musha is one version of a common
female name.

According to the talmudic rabbis who composed Mishnah Tractate Avot
(usually known as the "Ethics of the Fathers"):

"There are three crowns: the crown of Torah, and the crown of
priesthood, and the crown of kingship." (Keter Torah, ve-keter
kehunah,ve- keter malkhut - Avot 4:13)

But there's no such thing as a "Crown of Moses." (Even the Crown of
Torah is never referred to as the Crown of Moses.) So this can only
be folk-etymology, as it is inconsistent with talmudic sources.

KLAUSNER #galicia

Debbie Raff
 

Joel,
I did not see the original query, but I recently added a list of resident
names >from Nowy Sacz to my Nowy Sacz ShtetLink site. This list was compiled
by Bill Leibner.

There are over 20 KLAUSNERS listed in this file. One KLAUSNER appears to
have had a paint store, although no first name is associated with that
particular entry. A variety of sources were used to compile the list. It
looks like many of the KLAUSNERS have Testimony Pages housed at Yad Vashem.
So, once the Yad Vashem info. goes online (shortly, I hope), perhaps that
would be another way of linking the Nowy Sacz branch of KLAUSNERS to you own
branch. To see Bill's list, go to:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Nowy_Sacz/ and click on "A List of
4,232 Jewish Residents of Nowy Sacz"

Another possibility would be to go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Sacz/
and ask folks there, if they are familiar with the KLAUSNER family. This
group is an offshoot of the ShtetLink site, and there are over 70 members at
this time. You do need to subscribe to do this, but it is free.

Good luck,

His query provides an excellent opportunity to remind Galician researchers

covering the length and breadth of Galicia:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/galicia1891.htm

For each entry, the database contains the following fields: Surname, Given
Name, Town Name, Occupation (in German), and Occupation (translated into
English), and includes Jews and non-Jews, which means you can also identify
the Polish magnates who "owned" the towns and villages (and mills, taverns,
and distilleries!) your ancestors lived in, and, possibly worked for.
(Another excellent avenue of research for some.) You can also download the
entire list of entries for one particular town--quite useful in identifying
family and business connections, along with providing a socio-economic
"snapshot" of your ancestral shtetl at one point in time.

In ten seconds of searching I identified the following 14 KLAUSNER entries,
some of whom ARE in involved in the glassmaking and toy businesses Joel
refers to. >from here, he can go on to search the JRI-Poland database for
the existence and location of vital records on these individuals,
and--possibly--gain vast results in another thirty seconds of so of
research. Not bad...even for busy researchers!

Here are the results:

Yehud, Israel

As in most other cases, my first act would be to do a Google search for the
two terms "Tomsk Jews" (without the quotes). I just did that, and found 1630
hits, some of them apparently to the point. Google is your friend, and an
excellent starting point for virtually any inquiry.

After that, my inclination would be to get to the nearest library likely to
have a copy of Pinkas haKehillot (TAU, in your case). I don't know for a
fact that those volumes contain an article about Tomsk, but it's a likely
shot. >from that point, I'd look at the Jewish Encyclopedia, and consult the
librarian and the card catalogue.
