Searching for family ROSOHAZKY / ROSOCHACKA 1933 France #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

Hello,

I couldn't find any person bearing this name in our usual sources of
informtion (directories, births in France, lists of deportation >from
France).

On the other hand, you certainly visited the Yad Vashem database :
there are several persons with that name, almost all of them coming
from SOKOLY (Poland), who died in Treblinka in 1942, but none of them
with the first names you wrote, except a Szlomo. Their POT were
written in 1956 by a friend.

JGSLA June Meeting-Breaking Through Brick Walls #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

Do you live in the Los Angeles area....and are stuck in your genealogical
research? Need some creative suggestions to help you make some
breakthroughs?

Then plan to attend the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of
Los Angeles on Monday, June 19th at 7:00PM at the Jewish Federation of LA.

Program: Breaking Through Genealogical Brick Walls

Speaker: Hal Bookbinder

In this highly interactive session, creative solutions will be discussed
for problems that we run into in our genealogical research. For example,
how do we find the married name for a female relative? The obvious answer
would be to check the bride's registry in the city where the couple
married. But what if you do not know which city or state? How do you handle
the situation where relatives will not open up and share what they know?
What happens when you encounter missing information in on-line databases
because of transcription or other errors? During the talk, creative ways to
overcome these and other obstacles will be shared by the speaker as well as
through audience participation. Please come prepared to share your best
methods for overcoming brick walls.

Hal BOOKBINDER has been researching his family for over 20 years, tracing
two lines into the mid-18th century and identifying over 3,000 relatives.
He has published numerous articles on Jewish genealogy and contributed to
several comprehensive volumes on the subject. Hal has served as president
of JGSLA and the International Association of Jewish Genealogical
Societies, and served on the JGSLA Board of Directors for nearly 20 years.
In the world beyond genealogy, Hal directs computing for UCLA Healthcare
and teaches Information Technology at the university level.

Location: Jewish Federation Building Board Room, 6505 Wilshire Blvd Los
Angeles, CA 90048-4917

*Free of charge, but reservations are required due to space limitations and
security at the Jewish Federation Building. Please phone 323.761.8648 or

Los Angeles.)

Peder Jensen v. Post & Ane Hansdatter, Kalundborg #general

Richard Engan <rengan@...>
 

Our family story is that my great grandmother Maren Marie was the
daughter of a Jewish mother. The family story is that she was "put out"
with a foster famlily after her father died when she was a baby. The
mother is listed as Ane Hansdatter and was born about 1893. The family
story is that her father Peder Jensen v. Post died in a wagon crash
while delivering liquor. He had been
drinking.

Is there away to learn about a Jewish family in the Kalundborg, Denmark
area in the early 1800's?

Could the " v. Post" name be of a Jewish family?

The following is the family:

The Probate record shows the death of Peder Jensen v. Post,
braendeviinsbraender og vognmand age 49. Died Aug 11, 1833 and buried on
the 16th.

The 1834 Census of Kalundborg, Cordehlgade 113 - film 39057 page 194.

Rabbi SEGAL, CHARIF, and HALEVI #general

Reuven Chaim Klein <rachack@...>
 

For quite some time now, I have known that my gggg-grandfather, Rabbi
Binyamin Eliezer Ungar-Auerbach of Krakow (father of Rabbi Reuven Chaim
Klein wrote the Shenos Chaim) married the daughter of Rabbi Ya'akov HaLevi
from Wolbrom. Rav Ya'akov HaLevi was the brother of Rav Yosef Lichtig/Charif
HaLevi. The brothers were in turn sons of Rabbi Tzvi Hirsch HaLevi, who was
a direct male descendant of Rabbi Dovid Segal HaLevi, the TaZ (Turei Zahav).
For some time I have been looking for the exact line of connection between
Rav Tzvi Hirsch HaLevi and his direct male ansector the TaZ. I have yet to
get the exact line of lineage. However, I recently found out that the
Maharsha (who lived in the same era as the TaZ and was also a Levi) had a
son-in-law named Rabbi Yitzchack Segal Charif HaLevi. I was wondering if
this son-in-law of the Maharsha had anything to do with the line which I am
trying to trace here.

(See http://www.myhomeloancompany.com/kleins for more of my research in my
family's genealogy project.)

21st. St. Cemetery revisited #general

mimisimon@...
 

Genners,
I realize that people posted information about the article in the
NY Times about the 21st Street Cemetery, including the website in order
to retrieve the article itself. However, since some people may not be
able to access the website and article, for whatever reason, or come
across the postings in the Archives at a later date, I am including some
of the details as they pertain to genealogical interest.

The article was about damage to tombstones in the 21st St. Cemetery in
New York City, a cemetery belonging to congregation Shearith Israel, also
known as the Spanish and Portuguese synagogue. The damage occurred when
renovations were being performed to an adjacent building. Some interesting
facts are that this is the third cemetery built by the congregation. The
first, opposite Chatham Square, was used >from 1682 to 1828; the second, on
West 11th St., >from 1805 to 1829; and this one, >from 1829 to 1851. There
are more than 250 grave markers in the cemetery, some of them five feet
tall and ornate, others simple and flat and worn by time, according to
the writer of the article, Patrick McGeehan. The cemetery contains the
graves of two soldiers who died in 1784, Daniel Gomez and Abraham Judah.
Another veteran of the Revolutionary War, Isaac Nunes Cardozo, died in 1832,
a few years after the cemetery was established, Rabbi Marc Angel, senior
rabbi of the congregation is quoted as saying. The first two graves were
moved farther uptown >from the congregation's first cemetery because the
city wanted land for a new street.

On a personal note, many years ago I lived across the street >from the 11th
Street Cemetery. It was a place of mystery in a bustling neighborhood,
surrounded by high walls and a locked gate. I used to stand in front of the
gate and gaze at the tombstones, wishing I could enter and read the
inscriptions. I guess the search for roots was already in my soul.

Around 1842 family names were not that well set; in addition,
Isaacs would not be a Russian/Yiddish/Polish patronymic(which is why
you don't find it in Russian records), but an English-language
version of something else. Perhaps Tapulski was the maiden name, but
they said Isaacs in Australia or England or wherever English was
spoken, since that is an English-sounding surname.
Sometimes when the records don't agree, the odd one gave the right
information, the others gave the 'corrected' version. Perhaps she
was Rachel bat Yitzchak so used the English-sounding father's name
in place of a maiden name, but legally, in Russia, she would have
been something else, maybe even Tapulski or something like that.
More likely it would be fair to say that both surnames were correct.
"Isaacs" would have been her patronymic in its English version. In
Russian that patronymic would have been Izakovich. When secular laws
in various countries first required the adoption of surnames, Jews
often chose their patronymics to be the family surname henceforth.

Oddly, I had exactly the opposite experience with my ggm Juliet
Marks, whose maiden name appears as "Collins" on Australian and NZ
death certificates of some of her children, whereas on the birth
certs. of her three youngest (born in England after 1837) her maiden
name is given as "Hymans." Obviously Hymans was a patronymic (in her
case it came >from the Dutch Jewish name Hijman) whereas Collins was
the Anglicized version of the Dutch city Kollum -- the surname
originally adopted by her family in Holland prior to their
emigration to England around 1800. Juliet's self-description by
patronymic was initially a "bum-steer" for my research -- I wasted a
lot of time looking for Hymans when I should have been focusing on
Collins! It is through the Australian and New Zealand documents that
I found this out! (For which I am eternally grateful to my Oz and
Kiwi cousins.)

Around 1842 family names were not that well set; in addition,
Isaacs would not be a Russian/Yiddish/Polish patronymic(which is why
you don't find it in Russian records), but an English-language
version of something else. Perhaps Tapulski was the maiden name, but
they said Isaacs in Australia or England or wherever English was
spoken, since that is an English-sounding surname.
Sometimes when the records don't agree, the odd one gave the right
information, the others gave the 'corrected' version. Perhaps she
was Rachel bat Yitzchak so used the English-sounding father's name
in place of a maiden name, but legally, in Russia, she would have
been something else, maybe even Tapulski or something like that.
More likely it would be fair to say that both surnames were correct.
"Isaacs" would have been her patronymic in its English version. In
Russian that patronymic would have been Izakovich. When secular laws
in various countries first required the adoption of surnames, Jews
often chose their patronymics to be the family surname henceforth.

Oddly, I had exactly the opposite experience with my ggm Juliet
Marks, whose maiden name appears as "Collins" on Australian and NZ
death certificates of some of her children, whereas on the birth
certs. of her three youngest (born in England after 1837) her maiden
name is given as "Hymans." Obviously Hymans was a patronymic (in her
case it came >from the Dutch Jewish name Hijman) whereas Collins was
the Anglicized version of the Dutch city Kollum -- the surname
originally adopted by her family in Holland prior to their
emigration to England around 1800. Juliet's self-description by
patronymic was initially a "bum-steer" for my research -- I wasted a
lot of time looking for Hymans when I should have been focusing on
Collins! It is through the Australian and New Zealand documents that
I found this out! (For which I am eternally grateful to my Oz and
Kiwi cousins.)
