Re: INTRO - researching ROSENSWEIG family from Germany #germany

Unless I missed something, Gary, you didn't say how you know that they came
from Germany to begin with. We have Rosenzweigs >from Trencin County
Slovakia as well as >from East Galicia, for instance.

Well there is the real issue. It seems that some of the living relatives
heard a story that he left Germany to avoid conscription in the German army
only to arrive in Poland and became conscripted in the Polish army. However,
no one can seem to recall the town or region in Germany. My focus is of
course within my family to glean any more details about this event. In the
meantime, I am using the internet as a resource as well. Thanks,

ViewMate Translation: Polish & Yiddish #general

Shelly Crane
 

Dear Genners, I am hoping to find someone to translate two things for me.

One is the back of a photo of relatives in Israel. There is one word in
particular that is illegible because it appears to be crossed out. Any
assistance in deciphering this word (and the others would be most appreciated.

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate file - VM5701


The other translation is a document ordered >from the Jewish Records Index
from Poland. I thought it was in Polish, but now have been told it's in "old"
Russian. Anyone able to translate?

JGS North Jersey meeting March 27 #general

Paul & Myrna Lewis <pmlewis6391@...>
 

Editing Photographs & Other Documents

Place: YM-YWHA of North Jersey
Date: Sunday March 27, 2005
Time: 2:00 PM

Many genealogists have gathered photographs and documents to go along with
our computerized family history records. It's a two-step process: first, we
have to put the actual "hard-copy" material into computer-readable form, and
then we often have to do some work on it before we include it in our
database. The first stage - scanning the photo or document into a computer
file - was discussed at an earlier meeting of our group. Now we're ready to
tackle the second part.

Bob Kraus, a long-time member of JGSNJ, will demonstrate some of the
photo-editing techniques available with fairly inexpensive computer
software. A key element of his presentation will be the assurance that
patience rather than extensive computer skill is the primary requirement to
producing these most worthwhile additions to your genealogy records.

The JGS meetings are held at the YM-YWHA of North Jersey, 1 Pike Drive,
Wayne, NJ. The Charles & Bessie Goldman Library will be open at 1:30 P.M.
to give those interested a chance to use our extensive resource center and
socialize. The program will begin at 2:00 P.M. There is no charge for the
program. All are welcome.

For information, or directions, contact:
Susan 732-752-3384, Judy 973-226-7049 or Paul 845-357-5567

Kalladey, Budweiser Kreis, Bohemia and Merging Family Trees #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

I first met Ruth Coman and Peter Barber [both SIG
members >from London] when I organised a
Bohemia-Moravia get-together on the occasion of Susan
Boyer's [California] visit to London in Sept. 2004.
Little did I know, that 6 months later our trees would
merge.

Ruth rang me yesterday and she asked about a grave in
Wahringer Friedhof, Vienna of Franzisca [nee LOEWY]
SCHUSSLER [umlaut on the U]:

Schussler Franziska, age 67, 18.08.1872, Gp 7 Grave
466

who was possibly her gt-gt grandmother.

We confirmed today that Franziska was indeed from
Kalladey and was the right person. She was described
as an "Oekonomiebesitzers witwe" [Estate-owner's
widow]. Her deceased husband was Joachim Tobias
SCHUESSLER.

My immediate reaction was that I also have
SCHUESSLER on my tree and then we realised we were
talking about the same family and Ruth had been
corresponding with my SCHUESSLER third-cousin in
Australia.

Peter Barber's tree is linked to Ruth's tree through
KAFKA and SALUS.

SALUS is linked to SCHUESSLER - Ruth's tree.

SCHUESSLER is linked to BACHRACH and
BACHRACH is linked to BIACH [Celia's tree - my great-
grandmother being Emma nee BIACH. Her sister Charlotte
married Joseph BACHRACH and Joseph granddaughter
married into the same SCHUESSLER family discussed
above]. QED

Peter also has BACHRACHs on his tree from
Leipnik in northern Moravia. As yet, we do not know if
the two BACHRACH lines are related

Moreover, Franziska's parents, namely the LOEWYs
from Kalladey, may be the same as the Kalladey
LOEWYS on Randy Schoenberg's and Jane Reber's
[both >from California] trees.

Kalladey, [Kolodeje nad Luznici] in the Budweiser
Kreis, Southern Bohemia, had 69 Jewish families living
in the village in 1793; all 69 families were
Schutzjuden and four families were named "Lovi".

It is cause for a celebration all around; were there
still a Jewish community in Kalladey, I am sure there
would be dancing in the streets tonight.

As SIG members Uri Meretz and Ray Minkus have both
written to me [and I have their permission to quote]
"bim bam bom" was also used in Hebrew songs - so
perhaps that is what they might be singing too.
