SZPILMAN or GOLDSZTEJN or MAKOWER?? #poland

marty <meyers01@...>
 

Wigdor ZYLBERMAN married Ryfka MAKOWER in Przasnysz in 1844.
Ryfka's parents were Boruch Szymkowicz and Ruchel bat Jakob.
They lived in the shtetl of Romany Dzialo and their childrens' births were
recorded in Chorzele. In 1845-57, Ryfka is listed as Ryfka daughter of
Boruch.

However, in 1862 she is recorded as Ryfka SZPILMAN for the births of
Aron and Nosek and when Srol Jankief was born in 1863, she was recorded
as Ryfka GOLDSZTEJN.

Apparently, surnames were a bit variable here, but now I have two
additional surnames.

If this is familiar to anyone, please contact me privately at

Place of death registration - home or away? #poland

siroli@...
 

I am searching for the death record of my ancestor who lived in Ciechanow
but died during a business trip in or on the way to Wyzogrod on the Vistula
in 1872. Apparently his cart slipped and overturned on the icy road.

Would the death have been registered in Wyzogrod or back in his home town
Ciechanow, once the body had been returned to his family?

Thanks
Simon

Announcing the Obermayer German Jewish History Awards for 2006 #general

Arthur Obermayer <obermayer@...>
 

The German-Jewish Community History Council, GerSIG and the Berlin
Parliament are pleased to announce their Call for Nominations for the
annual Obermayer German Jewish History Awards to be given to non-Jewish
Germans who have made extraordinary contributions to preserving the
Jewish history, culture, cemeteries and synagogues in their local
communities. Thousands of Germans have carried out such activities as
volunteers because they feel it is the right thing to do - the
preservation of Jewish material is one of the few ways in which they can
respond constructively to their country's horrible past. We, as Jewish
genealogists, have been the recipients of their good work. This award
provides Jews throughout the world with the opportunity to recognize and
honor German individuals who, in many cases, have devoted their
lifetimes to such important endeavors.

The deadline for submission of nominations is September 20, 2005.

Many of you previously submitted worthy nominations. Those nominees who
have already received Certificates of Commendation are prime candidates
for this year's awards, and will only require updating of the submissions.

This will be the sixth year for such awards, which will be given on
January 25, 2006. Each awardee and their spouse will be invited on an
all expenses paid trip to Berlin to receive the award at the Plenary
Chamber of the Abgeordnetenhaus, the home of the Berlin Parliament. The
honorees will receive a framed certificate and an honorarium to be used
for the furtherance of their work. Awardees' contributions will be
described to attendees and to the local, national and international news
media.

These awards have in the past received extensive coverage in American
newspapers, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Miami
Herald, and the Boston Globe. It has also received coverage by the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, the Associated Press, and a great many German
daily and weekly newspapers, as well as specific articles in American
Jewish weeklies, as well as numerous overseas newspapers, such as
Ha'aretz and the Jerusalem Post.

If you know someone who may be appropriate for nomination, further
information -- including the Call for Nominations and profiles of
previous award winners and the jury -- can be obtained at:

You may obtain a hard copy of the Call for Nominations by sending an

Re: What is " in Hebrew year? #general

The double quote does not represent a year; it is the division between the
first part of the year & the last digit of
the year. Tav, shin vav is 5606 which most likely was 1945 since Tevet can
be in December & January.
Hope this helps. If you have any questions of this nature, please do not
hesitate to ask me directly if you want.
