Re: FRIEDMAN, HALPERIN, HALBERSTAM, MOSKOWITZ #rabbinic

To help you in your family research, I suggest that you do a
"google" search on these names. All of these names are from
prominent Chasidic families and dynasties. Aside >from information
online, there are numerous books on these rabbis and the Dynasties
that they come >from (Artscroll, Feldheim, Targum are some of the
publishers).

Start with specific names and then move on to more general listings,
if you do not find what you want.

For example, you may not find a specific listing for "Rabbi Yoel
MOSKOWITZ" of Shatz (Shotz). However a search on "Shotz" or
"MOSKOWITZ" may do the trick.

As for HALBERSTAM, there is an extensive posting of family trees and
branches at http://www.loebtree.com/halberstam.html (thanks to
Daniel E. Loeb and others) that are pretty accurate.

Good hunting,

Re: HUNGARIAN LETTER #hungary

On non-Hungarian characters you will find it as the O + tilde or toothpaste,
and as the U + the ^ rooftop. The proper Hungarian would be the double
long " over either the O or U.

On the keyboard you should be able to generate it by simultaneously pressing
the ALT key and the numeric 0213 or 0245 for the O based, and 0219 and
0251 for the U based characters.

Depending on the fonts used, it will give you the ~ / ^ or " marks above the
base characters.

For more detail related to the pronunciation and writing of the Hungarian
characters, accent-marked and combinations letters, you may go to my WEB page
at http://www.arpad.com/HACCENTMARK.HTM and find more detailed information,
including how to set up your keyboard etc. If you still have questions, you may

With a town as large as Kaunas was, with such a glorious Jewish history

to collect it all, let alone display it. However, I hope this start will be

LEVY family ---Warsaw? #general

Jslevey@...
 

Hello,

As you all know, I wrote in a few weeks ago that I had started on my family
tree and discussed my father's side of the family, who had migrated to
England.

I found that according to the British census my grtgrt grandfather, Samuel
Levy (sometimes spelled Levi in the British records) was born around 1856 in
Warsaw. I now understand that there is a region (and also a province?) named
Warsaw and that he could be >from a small town within that region and/or
province. Prior to 1881 after marrying my grtgrt grandmother, Leah Caro, he
cannot be found on any census. He married Leah in 1878, in Birmingham, and
lived in Birmingham until his death in about 1896. He was a boot finisher.
I ordered a copy of the certificate of marriage registration, which states
that his father's name was Lewis Levy and that he was a peddler. I don't
think Samuel migrated with his family, as I find nothing on any census for a
Lewis Levy that would match (birth year and/or place is off).

I do know that Lewis would have to have died prior to 1887, because Samuel
and Leah named one of their sons Louis.

I have looked on Jewish Gen databases searching all of Poland but I can't
find anything that seems to match.

I'm not in a position to visit Poland right now, especially since I'm not
really sure where exactly I am looking. Does anyone have any suggestions as to
how one finds the town of origin and how one might find some type of record
of this family. I realize that the spelling could have been LEWI or LEWY in
Poland in addition to Levy/Levi.

Thanks,

Janette Levey Frisch

I was thinking that was a definite possibility, but in looking through the
UK census lists tonight, I find a number of Poulton families having members
with Jewish-sounding given names.

It was quite common for non-Jewish families to have Biblical names. I
inserted 'Abraham' in the 1901 Census of England. There were hundreds of
responses, the overwhelmiong majority of which were clearly non-Jewish. I
alsi inserted 'Moses' as a forename in the 1901 Census of Wales. The
non-Jewish response was overwhelming.

Thanks to Wolf Erich Eckstein for making this so clear.

So the next question is, which of these are indexed in the computerized
register? Only the Zentralfriedhof, or the others?

Thanks
