Lewin collection at Yeshiva University #general

Michael Gordy <michaelgordy@...>
 

Yeshiva University's special collections is home to an
unusual collection of documents of Jewish communities
an central and eastern Europe (mainly Poland). The
entry in YULIS (the Yeshiva library catalog) has this
summary:

Contains variety of records of Jewish communities in
Central and Eastern Europe especially in Posen,
Silesia and other German-speaking areas, including
pinkasim (record books) of communities and societies,
memorial books with lists of deaths, records of births
and circumcisions, account books, legal documents,
tax lists, property records, minutes, records of
rabbinical courts, cemetery registers, society
statutes, synagogue seat records, and other documents
of communities at
Kempen (Kepno, Poland), 1771-1902;
Strassnitz (Straznice, Czechoslovakia), 1855-1879;
Krotoschin (Krotoszyn, Poland), ca. 1832-ca. 1913;
Labischin (Labiszyn, Poland);
Militsch (Milicz, Poland), ca. 1830-ca. 1900;
Fraustadt (Wschowa, Poland), 1835-1887;
Rawitsch (Rawicz, Poland), ca. 1838-ca. 1861;
Nikolai (Mikolow, Poland), ca. 1849-1898;
Myslowitz (Myslowice, Poland), 1810-1852;
Schwerin, 1819-1869;
Posen (Poznan, Poland), 1535-1538, 18th century;
Mecklenburg province, 1760-ca. 1850;
Breslau (Wroclaw, Poland), 1808-1844;
and elsewhere.

I have myself examined only the documents from
Straznice, CZ, more about which I shall soon post to
the Austria-Czech SIG. The bulk of it is minutes from
the Jewish town council and tax records, but it also
contains synagogue seating records, voting records,
and records of incoming and outgoing mail. The range
of years is rather longer than the 1855-1879 noted
in YULIS -- more like 1827-1911. The collection has
been microfilmed, but not thoroughly cataloged, and
one suspects there are hidden gems within.

The special collections is housed in the main library
off Amsterdam Ave at the northeastern tip of
Manhattan.

Please send me private email about your own use of
this extraordinary collection.

For some time I have been trying to find information on the family name
CHAYET (as used in the USA). >from what I have been able to find is that

The name comes >from chait meaning tailor as best I can determine.
Does anyone have any information about this schetel families around 1900
that may be a possible link to the US name?

The memorial website to the destroyed Shtetl of MAZHEIK (Mazeikiai in
Lithuanian) has been transferred >from its temporary private website to its
permanent home: the JewishGen's ShtetLinks.

Mazheik was a small Jewish Shtetl, situated at the northwestern part of
Lithuania, close to the Latvian border.

As with many other Shtetls, Jewish life in Mazheik came to its tragic end in
August 1941, when local Lithuanians initiated and executed mass murder of
most of the local Jewish population.
The Mazheik Shtetl Memorial Website was initiated and established by a group
of volunteers, children and grandchildren of Jewish natives of Mazheik,
taking upon them the mission of preserving the memory of this vanished
community.

The new web address of the homepage is:

WOLF couple is also buried there: [ZF below means
graves identified at the Zentralfriedhof, Vienna]:

ZENTRALFRIEDHOF I. TOR 6 29 83
WOLF Adele aged 38 10.06.1902
WOLF Sigmund aged 65 27.10.1921

And I should have looked at Peter's family site before
- because there we can read that the name was changed
to BACH in 1872 and that Adele was the daughter of
Josef and Fanny {nee GRUNFELD, with umlaut}.

On the Matriken in Vienna, you may see annotations re
the name change. It will probably also be mentioned on
their Meldezettel. The name change could have
coincided with Josef becoming "Secretary General" of
the Anker Insurance Co. in Vienna. If one could access
company documents, they might reveal more. BAUCH
[stomach] was probably perceived as an unsuitable name
for such an elevated position.

On the family website, there is a lovely hand-drawn
tree when you click on the tree symbol on the top left
of the page. This tree has many interesting links.

On this tree we see that Josef [ZF} and Fanny [ZF] had
8 listed children:

Fritz
Adele [ZF] married Siegmund WOLF [ZF]
Max married Lilly FLEISCHER
Martha [ZF] married Fritz KHUNER [ZF]
Robert
Rudolf [ZF]
Alfred [ZF]
Clara married Heinrich BOHM {umlaut}

re Peter's original query; it was a bit misleading.
Son: Emanuel, went into the Textile trade and later
opened a "Cotton Printing Factory" in (unknown)?
Son: Bernhard, became a "Physician" in Zatec(Saaz),
south of Humpolec

refers to GRUNFELD not BAUCH and Peter tells me
that he has modified the sentence on the website to
clarify.

Two other points: WStLA = Wiener Stadt und
Landesarchiv [now housed in the Gasometer] and Josef
BAUCH was a Chirorgus which got mangled into

EPSTEIN-SHAPIRO-COHEN: Philadelphia-St. Louis #general

sgoldstnj@...
 

I have recently verified, through on-line and other research means,
that my great-grandfather Bernard EPSTEIN of Philadelphia was an older
brother of noted Orthodox Rabbi Chaim Fishel EPSTEIN of St. Louis. I
also have had significant contact with descendants of their much
younger sister, Tzvia (Cecilia) EPSTEIN SKAIST, and with the SILAGI
family, descendants of brother Yisrael (Jacob) EPSTEIN.

I have documented the descendants of those relatives, but the trail has
run cold regarding what research suggests to be other siblings. The
best information that I have is:
oldest sibling Dina Epstein SHAPIRO,
born approximately 1874, died 1940, probably was married to author and
Rabbi Zalman S. Shapiro of Denver-their children apparently included
author and Rabbi David Shlomo Shapiro of Milwaukee, Rose Shapiro
LEVINE, and Joe Shapiro.

Devorah (Dora) Eta Epstein COHEN (1889-1945) (married to Shlomo
(Solomon) Cohen, a Hebrew school teacher). Children included Sam
Cohen, Florence Cohen who possibly married a Rabbi EFROM. This family
possibly lived in St. Louis.

Bernard was possibly known by the Hebrew "Berel" within the
immediate family.

If any of the above rings a bell for anyone, notably any connection to
Bernard Epstein and Rabbi Chaim Fishel Epstein, please e-mail me at:
