I built upon the contributions of Hans Peter Grab and Eva Browne and their
translations of the drop-down selections in the Prague registration forms
database at http://digi.nacr.cz/prihlasky . I constructed a table that our

Help reading Hebrew gravestone - ViewMate #austria-czech

Bob Lenk
 

I have posted to ViewMate 4 photographs of 6 Hebrew gravestones. I
would appreciate help in reading and translating.

The graves are in Mikulov (Nikolsburg), Moravia. I can read portions of
the stones, but they are in varying conditions. Some are broken, and
some are partially buried. I have more photos of some of the stones,
and I've had to decrease the resolution on some to meet the limit for
ViewMate. I can send you more photos if they will help, but I doubt
they will make much difference in anyone's ability to read the stones.

Here are the URLs of the ViewMate postings, and brief descriptions of
the stones:

1) http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=9595
I believe the deceased is named Bela PULGRAM

2) http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=9596
I believe the surname is PULGRAM
The date of death looks like 1 Nisan 5590 (with perhaps a 4th
letter/digit for the year)

3) http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=9598
The date of death could be 23 Kislev 5589

4) http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=9599
These are three graves, I believe all surname BOHM (umlaut over O)

You may find a 5th photo of mine in the ViewMate Directory, but it looks
like there may have been a problem with the upload, and it did not show
up with these four.

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/index.asp

Thank you for any help.

New Feature in The Galitzianer #galicia

Edward Goldstein <editor.TheGalitzianer@...>
 

Dear Galitzianers,

Many of us have grown up listening to stories, reminiscences and
anecdotes of life in our shtetlach. These stories are the "heart and
soul" of genealogy.

Susana Leistner Bloch has volunteered to create a special feature
for The Galitzianer, called "Tales of Galicia," which will appear
from time to time in future issues. If you have such stories please
send them to Susana at <bloch@mts.net>. (Her email address is
provided here with her permission.)

When sending a story please add a little information about the
person who told it, the place he/she came >from and -- if you have a
photo -- even better!

Don't be shy and think your story is minor or of no interest to
others. Anything that recreates "the sounds, the smells and the
colors" of our history is as important as "hanging" a new name or
date on our family tree; it will give us and future generations of
Galitzianers a glimpse of how our ancestors lived.

Susana and I are looking forward to hearing >from you.

Edward Goldstein
Editor, The Galitzianer

Tsadok and the "excitement" of "exotic" ancestry #general

==Exciting? Many genealogists seem to share the opinion that discovery of
Sephardic ancestry in an Ashkenasi family would somehow enhance its prestige.
I haven't been able to discover a rational explanation for this belief. Do Sefardim
believe that Ashkenasi ancestry enhances their family. I have noticed that Gentiles
often try to discover Jewish ancestry: "My grandparents were Josef and Esther
Muller."

==Any thoughts on this search for "exciting ancestry?" Certainly, the statement
that a name was more common among Sefardim than among Ashkenasim does not imply
that one should assume a Sefardi ancestor. Plenty of Ashkenasim were named Zadok
and the majority of Sefardim were not . . .

Hello,

Sadly, NARA has no immigration records for my grandparents, Moshe(Morris) RUDERMAN (RUDORMAN)1900 and Eske(Sarah)COHEN(KOHEN,KAGEN)1898. I know that they were
married in August, 1903 in New York City. Does anyone have any other ideas regarding how I can confirm their immigration? I believe that they, or at least the RUDERMAN family came >from Kraisk.

Thank you for any help.

INTRO - Searching SILBERSPITZ, ZILBERSPITZ & ZIMERSPITZ #warsaw #poland

Randy and Nancy Fox <jessefox7@...>
 

Hello Warszawa,

I just joined the group, and have also joined GerSig, Gesher Galicia, and
AustriaCzech.

My primary research goal with this group is to find out if any of my
immediate SILBERSPITZ family >from Gnojnik, Poland or Berlin, Germany lived
in the Warsaw Ghetto. We have not been able to find any information on the
fate of my family members during the Holocaust. We have located SILBERSPITZ
and ZIMERSPITZ survivors in Israel, Austria, USA, and Argentina, but we are
not certain they are related to our immediate family.

I have been doing genealogy research for over 10 years, but consider myself
to be novice in doing research on Warsaw. My experience doing research on
the internet on other issues is extensive.

My native language is English - I live in the USA. I can read Spanish,
Italian and some French, but barely read Polish and German.

I have documents and vital records for my grandmother Mrs. Chane Terzian
(nee "Helen" SILBERSPITZ), born 1897 in Gnojnik, Poland, who emigrated to
the USA in 1914 and died in 1923 in the USA.

My great-grandparents Laja (nee Lotti ZIMERSPITZ) and Jakob SILBERSPITZ
lived in Gnojnik, Poland (formerly Galicia) >from the 19th century at least
to the interwar period when we lost contact with them. We do not know if
they migrated elsewhere or died in the Holocaust.

Warm regards,

However, the JOS calender is easy to use and I personaly use is for all Gregorian
