Betreut von... #austria-czech

Zeev Raphael <zeevra@...>
 

Dear Lorraine Bertelsen,

"Betruet von" indeed means "in the care of".

But the correct spelling should be "betreut" - "looked after", or
"taken care of".

Best regards,

Re: Name - Eidel Rasze #galicia

According to the book "Given names of Polish Jews",
Rasze or Rasza is a deformation of the name Rasia
(resh-aleph-samech-yud-hey).

Does anyone know what English name "Rasze" might be? My grandmother's
name in JRI-Poland is Eidel Rasze. I knew her as Ida (Eidel) but I have
no idea about "Rasze". I can't find it in the GNDB. Any thoughts?

RASZA is the Polish spelling of the Yiddish name Rasha. Visit the Galicia

Re: Mother's surname #general

Sally M. Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

Sometimes in the Russian Empire it was illegal for Jews to marry (civilly),
to cut down on our numbers - often only the eldest son was allowed to marry.
However, the Jews weren't interested in the civil marriage and married
religiously. The surnames were not much used among the Jews, who called
themselves X the son/daughter of Y. The state required the surname for tax
and draft and such - to keep track of who is whom.

Well, according to the state, since there was no civil marriage, the
children were illegitimate and had the Mother's surname. The Jews didn't
care, the kid was still X the son/daughter of Y. Whether they said he was
Smith or Jones was no concern of the Jews; the child was the legitimate
offspring of a (religiously) married couple.

"I've noticed that in many old vital records and specifically in the JRI-Poland
database, many children's birth - and even death - records are listed as the
child having the mother's surname rather than the father's as is customary today."

Re: Gardner Synagogue #general

I lived for a while and worked at Heywood Hospital in Gardner. I have
friends who were very well acquainted with the Rabbi and his family. One of
my friends went to high school with the Rabbi's daughter, the senators
wife. When I lived in Gardner the synagogue had recently closed.

I read your e-mail on the Jewishgen Digest of Dec. 1 about the Gardner
Synagogue and am sending you a bit more information. Early in 1995 I worked
closely with Mr=2E William Begin (ahlev shalom), the President of the
Synagogue, to merge it with Congregation Agudat Achim, 268 Washington St,
in Leominster,MA=2E (I am a member of the Leominster Synagogue). That merger
took place in May, 1995 when all the then members (thirteen or fourteen) of
Ohave Shalom became members of Agudat Achim. The Gardner Memorial Plaques
were installed in the small sanctuary in the Leominster shul. Many of the
Gardner records are in our office files.
When the Memorial tablets were moved to Leominster, two of the empty spaces
on the Tablet had a note covering them, saying they were reserved for Rabbi
Freilich and his wife.Mr.Begin removed the notes telling me the Rabbi and
his wife had made other arrangements=2E I am not aware of where the Rabbi and
his wife are buried.--Milton Kline

The names Israel and Sarah #germany

Florence & Henry Wellisch <kelwel@...>
 

While going through the birth records of Kolmar in Posen, now known as
Chodziez in Poland I found 7 children of Jacob and Charlotte Rotholtz. They
were born between 1876 and 1886. In the case of Leib, born in 1876, the name
of Israel, and the following handwritten note, translated >from the German
was added:
Based on Paragraph 172, Section 5 and the decision of the district
commissioner (Herr Landrat), the permission for registration of the second
name "Israel" is hereby given. Kolmar, 27. II. 1941
In the case of the daughter Fritze, born in 1884, the name of Sarah and a
similar handwritten note dated 31.3.1941.was added.
The other 5 children do not have the additional name Israel or Sara added.
My question is this. Would these additional names in the Kolmar register
indicate that Leib and Fritze were still living in Kolmar in 1941? I always
thought this was the case, but now I have been told that this is not
necessarily so.
I also do not understand why these additional names were added only in 1941,
since this law was passed in 1939.

Looking for Emmy SCHMIDT #germany

Michael Marx <MHMarx@...>
 

My grandfather, Paul COHN, lived in Berlin and was deported to Riga in
January 1942. According to the 1939 Berlin census he was living with
Emmy SCHMIDT at her residence at Charlottenburg, Kaiser-Friedrich Str.
80-81. She is listed as Jewish, born in Berlin on 17 April 1898. The
census gives her Kennkarte No. 32 62 90.

I am interested in finding out what happened to her, but I have been unable
to find any record of her after the 1939 census. Any information or suggestions
would be appreciated. Please reply directly to:
