Military insignia? #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Hello Dick and all,

This is certainly a K u.K uniform (Austro-Hungarian army), the rank is likely a Zugsfuehrer, which I take it is a sergeant. See <http://www.austro-hungarian-army.co.uk/badges/badges.htm>

Good luck
Tom

Hi Ed,

What a great find! I have a cousin who was in
Varazdin at the same time your cousin was there.
Please clarify how I can find her "Personal Data and
Belongings" information.

Happy Passover,

Denise

As an aside, the 7-page Form-I document that I have
shows that the Form-I
has 13 numbered Sections, but un-numbered pages.
Pages for Sections 3 thru
6 and 9 are not included. Perhaps they did not
apply to my cousin, a
62-year-old married woman.

Thank you for all your suggestions. I located Hull on the 1913 gazeteer and

I have been away and have missed out on this discussion. I cannot
understand your statement Russel that you have drawn a blank in your
Latvia search and that no records exist for 1879. There is a large
Dvinsk Database in the Jewishgen Latvia Database. If you are a
Contributor to Jewishgen you can do an Advanced search which brings
up 7 Bernsteins with their age in1882.
There were also many Bernsteins in Bauska and other places. The
Courland Enlistment Registers for 1845-1874 have 91 names. You must
widen your search and not restrict yourself to Dvinsk.
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/latvia
As this is the case if you requested a search >from the Archivists at
the Latvian State Historical Archives I am sure they would be able to
find data on your family.
I suggest that you write to them at irinwein@... and give as
much detail on your family names and dates as possible.

Lenin, Belarus Yizkor Book Translation #yizkorbooks

sanfordkap@...
 

I am kicking off a campaign to raise money to translate the remainder of the
Lenin, Belarus Yizkor Book. To date we have put on line under the
auspices of JewishGen's Yizkor Book Project English translations of the Hebrew and
Yiddish Tables of Contents as well as 4 articles, photos and their captions,
and the community register, a listing of those lost in the Holocaust. This
work has been done by volunteers. If you would like to see this work, go to
the following URL; http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/lenin/lenin.html .

If you are fluent (native) in Hebrew or Yiddish, have good English and
MSWord skills and would like to donate translation of one or more articles please
email me.

However if we are to get the remaining 225 pages translated in a timely
fashion we will need to hire professional translators through the Yizkor Book
Project. The total estimated cost is $8514. To get the project in motion I
have donated $500.00. If you would like to participate with a donation, the
procedure will be as follows:

If you would like to donate to this project and would like to have specific
articles translated, email me privately and I will send you by attachment a
schedule listing the articles in the Tables of Contents together with their
page locations as well as the number of pages to be translated and the cost of
translation for each article. Depending on the size of the article the costs
start at $20.00. You can then list the articles you would like to have
translated, total the cost and using the donation form linked to the Lenin URL
above make the donation of at least that amount of money to the JewishGen Yizkor
Book project. BE SURE YOU CLICK THE LENIN DONATION BUTTON TO ENSURE THAT
THE MONEY GETS ALLOCATED TO THE LENIN YB PROJECT. The Yizkor Book Project form
states that donations are tax deductible for American and Canadian citizens.

Once you have made your donation, email me with the amount of your donation
and the list of articles you want translated. Any money donated above the
amount to cover your articles will be used to translate any remaining articles.
We will translate articles in the order that donations are received. We
may accumulate articles to be translated to make it worthwhile for the
translator.

If you have any questions please email me.

Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive, # 85 #general

Ernest Kallmann
 

The last issue (# 85) is finally off the press. Here is the summary:

Pierre KATZ, the well-known Alsatian genealogist, has very recently left
all of us in sorrow. He was among many other feats, the finder of the
1808 name adoption lists and the author of their compilation, an
indispensable research tool for all those searching their ancestors in
Alsace and Lorraine.

* Families *

Pascal FAUSTINI stresses the prominent role of Jewish entrepreneurs in
the iron industry during the 18th century in Sarre, transforming a
profitable craftsmanship into a real industry. They often became tenants
and managers of the smithies owned by the counts of Nassau-Saarbrücken
and so built up their wealth. Family trees of the main families involved
are shown as well as the connections between them.

* Miscellaneous *

Eve-Line BLUM cites several books by local historians (Dordogne,
Charente-Maritime) containing information about deportees and Shoah
victims that are not available at the Departement Archive. In another
section, she tells how she traced a family Greif deported in convoys 71
and 73 to Auschwitz thanks to several linked Internet correspondents.

Eliane ROOS-SCHUHL analyzes the Schwindratzheim (Northern Alsace)
Memorbuch of 1786. The original manuscript is kept at the Jewish
Theological Seminary of America. She identifies the copyists and the
sponsorer Nephtali Hirtzel Jacob.

Bernard LYON-CAEN tabulates and compares the data appearing in A. A.
Fraenckel's book and in the journal Bergha for the Jewish marriage
contracts in Uffholtz in the 18th century.

Philippe DANAN gives the list of the 148 Jews paying the wool tax in
Algiers in 1832 as published in the Moniteur Algerien in its March 1832
issue. This tax was levied on the indigenous Jews and Muslims. The
amount of the taxes sheds a light on the economic situation of the
Jewish community at the time.

* Recent Events *

Georges GRANER, in ">from the webmaster", details the uses of the search
engine available on our website since January 2006.

Basile GINGER shows how the members of our society can be assisted when
searching for a naturalization docket.

Our library now hosts gravestone lists >from Jewish cemeteries in
France, compiled by various members, and the description of the content
of a CD-ROM about the Jewish communities of Bayonne and Saint-Esprit in
the 18th and early 19th centuries.

Although some Roses used to be Rasche and Raschke (others used to be Reise

For what my two cents are worth, Raschke is probably, as the OP suggests,
