Jette Rivka KAISER , Jaroslow, born circa 1850/55 #galicia

a kaiser
 

Greetings to all,

I am seeking information about Jette Rivka KAISER and
her family, born in Jaroslaw in Eatern Galicia,
daughter of Baruch KAISER, a trader in semi prescious
stones. Jette Rivka was married to Eisig RAGER, who
may have been a watchmaker. Jette and Eisig had at
least two children born in Jaroslaw, Chaim RAGER
1874 and Samuel RAGER 1881. Jette and Eisig may also
have lived in Rzeszow ( I know about the data base)
and very likely later moved to Vienna.

Any information or suggestions for further research
especially in Jaroslaw will be most appreciated

Anne Kaiser, New York City

Re: photographs of Lodz Headstones #lodz #poland

Richard J. Astor <richardastor@...>
 

hi Ruth!

i had the experience in 2004 of showing up at the new cemetery expecting my
family (abersztajn) cemetery addresses to be there. they weren't (and
probably still aren't).

the polish cemetery caretakers spoke no english and told my polish
taxidriver (thankfully i hadn't let him go or i wdln't have known from
*nothing*!) where to go to get the records.

we got back in the taxi and drove (3 min drive) to the jewish community
centre.* thankfully symcha keller (the overworked head of the lodz jewish
community; chabad) happened to be there and he does have the records, an
archive of contemporary index cards with cemetery addresses. he stopped
everything and went to look. he was V helpful.

my family happened to be in his archive, he photocopied the cards, and off
we drove back to the cemetery.

brandishing the photocopies to the cemetery's (not unpleasant) polish
caretakers won't work. they aren't in the business of finding graves. that
task was for christoff, a hulking young pole (who seems to be a cemetery
employee) who does find addresses and speaks almost no english (does sp
german?). he was off helping some other folk. when he was free he grabbed
the photocopies and strode off with me following. he reads hebrew and knows
the cemetery v well. he found my stones (around 6 or 7 of them in various
parts) by locating the general area (grid system) and rummaging around in
the overgrowth looking for the hebrew. wld have been vvvv difficult or
impossible without him. he v. diffidently accepted a tip. it was a tricky
relationship to manage: try not to overload him with too many addresses:
he'll find them all but march you >from one end of the cemetery to the other
so you'll have to find the first ones all over again unless you make a very
good clear note to yourself where they were. i fed him a couple of addresses
on one session and a few more later.

Jewish Names - Birzai, Lithuania #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

I have come across the names of a number of Jews who lived in Birzai,
Lithuania, on Vilnius Street during the Holocaust. These were given to me
by some Lithuanian "Austra" high school students >from Birzai who are working
on a project about the Jews of their town.

I hope these are of interest to those of you who are researching your
families >from Birzai. Many of these names date back to the 1834 and later
records available for the shtetl in the All Lithuania Database. They also
can be found in the JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF).

Bekeras [Beker], Abraomas
Berkaliene [Berkal], Braina
Birkavas [Birkav], Leiba
Bocheris [Bocher], Henakas

Sekas [Sek], Srolis
Sneideras [Sneider], Hanas
Vainsteinaite [Vainstein], Hana

At the present time, I have no further information on these individuals. It
would be of interest to know if these were Jews who were killed or those who
survived the Holocaust.
