More Moravian Families in FTJP #austria-czech

rodihan@...
 

I checked the Family Tree of the Jewish People early this morning,
and was pleased to discover that my tree -- containing about 6,500 names --
has now been posted. This collection deals primarily with the KNOPFELMACHER,
TAUBER, ZWILLINGER, and ZERKOWITZ families of Moravia (with numerous branches
into Slovakia, Hungary, and Austria), but many other family groups are
also included. Among the more well-known names are: Frankist disciple
Salomon KOHN-ZERKOWITZ (b. c.1750), Viennese writer Sidonie GRUNWALD-ZERKOWITZ
(1852-1907), violinist Sigismund BACHRICH (1841-1913), American inventor
Oscar ZERK (1878-1968), writer Herman UNGAR (1893-1929) [whose brother
married a KNOPFELMACHER], and Australian professor Dr. Frank KNOPFELMACHER
(1923-1995), to name a few. There are also hundreds and hundreds of
Shoah victims in all of these families.

I plan on continuing to add names, and will post an update every quarter.
One of my sources is the KNOPFLMACHER Stammbaum (written about 1905
by a relative in Vienna) which outlines the genealogies of a large
number of families connected to the KNOPFLMACHER family. I have
entered data >from the first 40 pages of the Stammbaum, but still have
about 20 more pages to go. Because it is written in the old German kurrent,
that's been a slow process for me.

If anyone has any questions about any of these families, feel free
to e-mail me.

Best regards,

Kojdanor, Poland #general

Dr.Josef ASH
 

Shalom,
I search the BASICHIS family >from Koidanovo (now Dzrezhinsk, near Minsk) in
Belarus.
In the Ellis Island database I found four young girls BASICHES, who arrived
by "Aquitania" >from Cherbourg on Sept 9, 1921.
It would be wonderful, but the town of the last residence is clearly typed
as Kojdanor. I understand, that the hand-written "v" and "r" may be
interchanged, but the country is typed as Poland. Minsk was always included
in the USSR and is not in the Western Belarus, which was the part of Poland
until the WWII.
I couldn't find Kojdanor in Poland, the name doesn't soud like a Polish
word. May be the researchers of Poland know such a shtetl?
I would like to adopt these girls into the family, but how can I manage
their "last residence"?
Thank you,
Dr.Josef Ash,
Israel

NY marriage info for my grandparents- interesting discrepancies #general

Deb(orah) Cohen Skolnik
 

I just got my paternal grandparents' ketubah
translated, thanks to the quick response of three
folks on this list (all of whom have been privately
thanked. I have had a lot of trouble finding the NY
State registration for their marriage, but now that I
have the exact date >from the ketubah, it should
theoretically be easier to get the secular document,
right?

Well, the trouble is that the names don't quite match,
nor does the date. I'm betting that it's the right
record anyway, and I'll send for a copy, but just to
share (and reinforce how flexible we need to be with
names), here's the *real* info, and what appears in
the database:

Grandfather:

Known in the U.S. as Barney or Barnet Cohen, Bere
Kissin in Russia.

Database calls him Benjamin Cohen.

Grandmother:

Known in the U.S. as Bessie -- was Pesha Solutuzkyn in
Russia.

Database calls her Bessie Suftuskiss.

Marriage date is shown on the ketubah as Monday, Aug.
17, 1908.

Marriage date in the NY database is Aug. 16.

No wonder it takes a lot of detective work to figure
all this stuff out!

But it wouldn't be possible without the help of people
on this list. Again, I thank those who helped
specifically, and those who have helped me in the
past.

KOENIGSBUCH from Dukla,Galicia and Trebisov,Slovakia #general

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners and Siggers,
I still face few unsolved questions concerning my
maternal family KOENIGSBUCH >from Brzesko,Galicia. All
the bearers of this unique and rare surname hail from
that shtetl.However,by the 1880 they started moving
to neighbouring shtels in Galicia and westward to
Krakow and Germany.Recently I have discovered in Yad
Vashem PoTs a certain Wolf KOENIGBUCH(sic) who was
born in Dukla in 1890. He was on the Slovak
Deportation list of 5.5.1942 >from Trebisov to Lublin
together with Rudolph KOENIGSBUCH b. 1930 and Maria
KOENIGBUCH(sic) b. 1931. These 2 kids were probably
his children.Their place of birth is given as
Trebisov.
I have discovered already another KOENIGSBUCH
(Hermann) b.1912 in Michalovce. His father Joseph was
my grandfather's brother.
I wonder any one has bumped into those names or has
them on his family tree.
Thanks.

There have now been two posts regarding Danzigers detained in Mauritius.
If anyone who is able to visit Jerusalem would like to investigate this
topic further, please contact me. The Central Zionist Archives (CZA)
there possesses several files related to the Mauritius detainment camps,
which might include information about detainees >from Danzig. CZA staff
is unable to research these files for us, but a volunteer could examine
them and report on their content (which might be suitable for a database).

In his message about his relatives detained in Mauritius, Arno Nachmann
wrote: "As far as I know you can find quite a few books written by other
deportees to Mauritius." If anyone is aware of books that name Danzigers
who were in Mauritius, please let us know.

Karsava (Korsovka) is in Latgale. It is about 40km north of Ludza.
A group of us visited there in 1997 with help >from the community
of Rezekne. There is a Soviet era memorial to Holocaust victims
at the Jewish cemetery.

Our guide was a local woman who recalled the Jews of Korsovka and
mentioned a remarkable escape of two survivors.

Hilda's mother was born there, which motivated our visit.

Success in Romanian Archives #romania

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

Dear ROM-SIG Members,

I suspect that many of us were delighted at Renate Bielefeld's
successful report on her requests for her family documents >from the
Archives in Transylvania.

But, we all need to be aware that there are huge differences between the
archives in what was once a part of the Germanic Austro-Hungarian
Empire, and the areas in the east of Romania, including Bucharest, which
were part of the Ottoman Empire. As reported by our experts in Romania,

"Maramures is a part of Transylvania where the people are much different than the
people in Muntenia (where Bucharest is located) and Moldavia. The influence of the
Austro-Hungarian Empire left the print on Maramures, the same as the Ottoman Empire
left the print on Muntenia and Moldovia".

So we must all consider the difference in responses >from the areas in which we seek
them.

Just a reality check for us all.
