Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

In 1865, Hinda KAZIMIREK married Zelek ARMATA in Przasnysz.
Zelek's parents were Abram and Gitla ARMATA and his siblings were Sura and
Szlama.

Hinda's parents were Jankief and Szyfra (nee ZYLBERMAN) KAZIMIREK.
Jankief's parents were Josek and Ryfka and his brother was Azryel KAZIMIREK
who married Sura Gitla ZYLBERMAN (sister of Szyfra).

Jankief and Szyfra both had previous marriages. Jankief had been
married to Jdes ZAMEK
and Szyfra had been married to a cousin Wolf ZYLBERMAN.

If any of this is familiar, please contact me privately at

KOMISAR #general

jakomisar <jakomisar@...>
 

I am looking for any information on the KOMISAR family in Bobriusk,
Slutsk, or Minsk; specifically, Hersch or Herscher Komisar. He was
born ~1836, died ~1898, and his wife's name may have been Frada,
Beatrice, or Rachel. He had 8 sons (plus two who died in infancy or
birth) who all moved to America. I have most of their records,
including papers >from Ellis Island, and they all reference Hersch
Komisar as their nearest living relative, though they vary between
Minsk, Brisk, Brusk, Slutsk, Bobriusk in where they say he lives.

I have not other information on him, and am at a dead end. If anyone
could help me at all to find any more information on Hersch KOMISAR or
his family, it would be greatly appreciated!

JGS of Greater Washington May 22 Special Event #general

Aaron Werbel <werbel@...>
 

The JGS of Greater Washington announces our May 22, 2005
meeting.

In cooperation with the Survivor=92s Registry of the
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, JGSGW brings
you:

A Most Extraordinary Situation ---- Genealogical Adventures In Poland.
Presented by Mr. Yale Reisner, Director of
the Ronald S. Lauder Foundation Genealogy Project at
the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland in Warsaw

Date: Sunday, May 22, 2005
Schmooze Time: 1:30
Featured Program: 2:00-4:00
Location: Rubenstein Auditorium of The United States
Holocaust Memorial Museum

Mr. Reisner will present dramatic, moving and sometimes
amusing accounts of the work of the Ronald S. Lauder
Foundation Genealogy Project in Warsaw as it helps Jews
of Polish origin and Poles of Jewish origin rediscover
and sort out their often twisted roots and complex
backgrounds. He will tell of child survivors and their
offspring, of family ties lost and found and of new potential
sources of information. Come and hear of your distant and
perhaps not-so-distant cousins who remain in the lands of
your ancestors, how you can help them and how they might
help you.

Since 1994, Yale S. Reisner has been assisting individuals
and families in uncovering their family histories. The Lauder
foundation is a non-profit Jewish educational foundation
active in 15 Central and East European countries. Mr. Reisner
holds degrees in East Central European Regional Studies from
Columbia College and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy
and has studied at Hebrew University, the Jewish Theological
Seminary of America, Villanova University, the YIVO Institute

spoken at IAJGS conferences and has published articles in
the USA, Canada, and Poland.

The lecture is open to the public. Admission is free.

Guessing the age of a picture #general

Claire Sztern <claire.sztern@...>
 

Shalom!

Is anyone good at situating a picture in time, or at guessing people's ages?
All I know is that the picture was taken in Poland around 1900 (add up
to 10 years, less up to 15 years).
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/all/viewmateview.asp?key=5616

This picture shows my great great great grandfather (born in 1847),
with three of his children (the soldier was born in 1871, the sister
at his right and the sister next to the child around 1870).

Thank you very much!

Re: Moravian Malt Industry - Sobotka #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

In my posting yesterday I wrote:

In 1809, Abraham SOBOTKA {1784-1867} married the daughter of Elias BREITENFELD
a tenant distiller on the castle estate of Rychemburk/Richenburg {Predhradi}
near Hermanuv Mestec in the Chrudimer Kreis, owned by the Kinsky family and
later by the prince of Thurn and Taxis. Abraham learned the trade >from his
father-in-law. Followed by Footnote 2:

I believe the father of Abraham SOBOTKA was probably Isaak SOBOTKA, a glazier
of Brozan/Brossan/Brozany, Pardubitzer Herrschaft, Chrudimer Kreis, listed as
having an oldest son Abraham in the 1793 census.

There is only one other SOBOTKA [Herman] family listed in the Chrudimer Kreis
transcript of the 1793 Bohemian census Vol IV, apparently on page 35. Yesterday,
I could not find this family, being preoccupied with Moravian maltsters. However,
this morning I found them on p. 36 - a printing error.

Herman would seem to be the more natural fit as a father for Abraham SOBOTKA,
as Herman was the tenant distiller in the Uhersko, Herrschaft Chraustowitz
[Chrousotvice] whereas Isaak was a glazier.

However Abraham was only the third son of Herman. He had two older brothers -
Wilhelm and Samuel as well as a younger brother Joseph and a sister Elisabeth.
His two older brothers may have died or he may have obtained a familiant licence
on some other grounds.

There was also a tutor - Johann WALTER - for the five children in the Herman
SOBOTKA household >from the "Romischen Reich", Linderhausen [Westphalia, Germany],
and a maid Hanna. No wife is mentioned and Herman is not designated as a widower,
which is unusual.

There is an interesting link between Isaak and Herman SOBOTKA. Herman is also
"zustandig" in the Pardubitzer Herrschaft in Beyscht/Beqscht/Byst, close to
the home of Isaak. So perhaps Isaak and Hermann SOBOTKA, born in the mid-1750s
were brothers or cousins?

I also wrote: after marriage, Moritz SOBOTKA who had lived in Chotebor and
Nova Vesi, Bohemia, moved to Vienna. I now believe that whereas Chotebor is in
Bohemia, Nova Vesi is in Moravia near Hodonin, the home of more excellent barley
strains and of the famous plant-breeding establishment, I wrote about on
8 Dec 2004 in "Agriculture & Plant Breeding in Moravia" [see our archives}*.

Could Moritz SOBOTKA perhaps have studied at this famous establishment before
his marriage to Sophie BRUM and life as a maltster in Vienna?

Celia Male [UK]

* Plant breeding stations founded by E. v. Tschermak in former Austrian-Hungarian
Monarchy and in Austria In Moravia 1903 - 1912 Hodonin (Goding): for rye,
wheat, barley, legumes, soybean.

So not only did many of us have Moravian forebears but some of the genetic
varieties in the cereals and other vital crops we eat and use today may have
originated >from one of the very same towns.
