Re: KNOWLES Collection - New database of Jews in UK c.1700-c1900 #unitedkingdom

Sherry,

I would think that ALL the references to Leeds should be to the Leeds in
Yorkshire.
Leeds, Kent was -and is still- a fairly small village and unlikely to have
any Jewish residents.
On the other hand, Leeds, Yorks. has been a large, prosperous city for more
than 200 years and has a large Jewish community.

You'll have to excuse the LDS's reading of British counties; they're
Americans after all.
The best one I ever saw (though not on LDS) was Cornwallshire!

As you say, it's an invaluable resource but, I too would be inclined to
check as much of the information as possible through other sources.

Major news for Danzig researchers:

I am delighted to announce that the first group of files we ordered >from the
Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People (CAHJP) in Jerusalem
has arrived!

To refresh your memory, and for our new members, below is a list of the
files included in this group:

Da/2056: Altschottland cemetery register, 1720-1874, 232 pages Hebrew,
German
Da/754: Altschottland birth register, 1838-1846, 10 pages in a large format
German
Da/862: Langfuhr list of members of Chevra Kadisha, minutes and accounts,
and maybe deaths, 1765-1849, 50 pages Hebrew
Da/286: Mattenbuden birth register, 1832-1846, 20 pages German
Da/305: Mattenbuden memorbuch, 1826-1883, 40 pages Hebrew, German
Da/1598: Weinberg list of members, 1817-1881, about 52 pages in a very large
format German
Da/685: Breitgasse memorbuch, 1845-1903, about 10 pages Hebrew

These descriptions came >from the CAHJP's online inventory of the Archives of
the Jewish Community of Danzig. Indexing just underway has shown the date
range given for Da/685 to be inaccurate -- it actually contains dates of
death as early as 1821.

Our acquisition of copies of these files was made possible through the
generous support of several of our SIG members. Undoubtedly, more of us
will benefit genealogically than contributed. If you want us to acquire
more material >from CAHJP, please donate to the CAHJP Project through our
JewishGen-erosity webpage:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=31

More than 65 years after these files were shipped >from Danzig to safety in
Jerusalem, they are finally being examined on a large scale by genealogists.
Or, at least, they will be examined by genealogists, if we can put the
information >from them online in JewishGen databases. To do this, we must
have volunteers to transcribe, and others to proofread the transcriptions.
We need more volunteers for both Hebrew and German. Please, join this team
effort to put the Danzig genealogical data online. We also need volunteers
for our complementary Family History Library (FHL) indexing project,
especially (but not only) proofreaders to check the large backlog of
transcribed Hebrew records. There is no minimum time commitment for
volunteering, and you can work at your own pace. If interested, please
contact me privately.

the road to discovering our Danzig roots.

Re: KNOWLES Collection - New database of Jews in UK c.1700-c1900 #unitedkingdom

Sherry Landa <sherry@...>
 

Thank you Laurence, for bringing this to our attention.

A slight caveat. I downloaded this last night and have already identified
some errors in it. For example, if you open the file and search for Leeds,
you will see entries referring to Leeds, Kent. When checking these I have
found that, at least some of them, are actually Leeds, Yorks.

I don't know the background to the collection but someone was clearly not
totally au fait with British geography and presumably looked Leeds up and
saw there is one in Kent. Other errors include the old favourite of LDS
conventions for counties ie Lincoln for Lincs and Huntingdon for Hunts
although small these may lead novices to confusion.

I downloaded the gedcom and lost any specific sources. All I get in the
sources is "Mordy Collection". So, it is impossible to independently verify
the data as you have no idea where to look for it.

I don't wish to take anything away, this is a very useful tool. I just want
people to remember that, as with all works of this kind, there will be
errors and vigilance is required.

Dear Betty,

You wrote:

I am researching AGI/AZI/AJI of Ottoman Empire origin (Salonica, Smyrna..)
he had a sister who might have married a Sadi in England.

Here are some ideas:

1. The book: The Jewish Community of Salonika-1943, by Aure Recanati
(Jerusalem, Erez, 2000), is the index (per family units) of property
declarations made by Salonica Jews in 1943, as ordered by the Nazis. Only a
third of the Jewish population of the city is indexed- the rest of the
documentation is still in the basements of Russian archives.
No AJI/AGI is registered there.

2. The book of Joseph Nehama: L'Histoire de Juifs de Salonique". Salonique,
1936-1978. 7v. The book annotated index is found at:
http://www.sephardicstudies.org/nehama.html

3. You can contact those researching AGI/AJI and STRUMZA/STROUMZA families
in the JewishGen Family Finder at: www.jewishgen.org/jgff/

4. Testimony Pages on the Yad Vashem website have to be checked. Go to:
http://www.yadvashem.org/wps/portal/IY_HON_Welcome
Their search engine will :take care" of the various spellings,

5. You also try the Istanbul Project at:
http://www.sephardiccouncil.org/istanbul/ as the surname AGI was also
found there.

6. In Turkey again, the surname AJI is included in "List of 7,300 Names of
Jewish Brides and Grooms who Married in Izmir between the years 1883-1901 &
1918-1933" issued by Dov Cohen. Under AJI there are 2 brides as well as 2
grooms. You can contact Dov at: dkcohen@bezeqint.net

Hoping all this will help,

Henry asks for a private reply, but I too am puzzled why this should be so as

anyone withhold information? Was this a famous person or just someone whose

someone like the members of the Judenrat, Vienna [when the IKG, Vienna was
abolished and a Judenrat was put in its place]. There are many letters
addressed to Erich and Grethe BREUER at the Seitenstettengasse, Wien and they
keep appearing on a well-known internet auction site. They sent parcels [no

Theresienstadt.

The BREUER also disappeared >from view and I have no idea who they were and what

names and melted into the background because they would have been reviled by
many. Perhaps Dr Karel GOLDMANN in this category and this is what happened in
Prague. Google "Judenrat, Prague" and many philatelic items appear.

I have written about the Vienna letters before - please search the message
archives with "BREUER".

I can see a Karel GOLDMANN active in Catholic circles in the Czech Republic - I
have checked and there are many Christian GOLDMANN families in Bohemia and
Austria too. So now we have another possibility. Perhaps Karel was not a real
person [just a name on an envelope to give hope!] or perhaps he was a stooge.

Here is a Christian? GOLDMANN [found on the internet] who might fit the bill:
Karl GOLDMANN Birth: 1880 Austria - Marriages 1909: Juliane STEINDL
Of Weyer Land, Kuepfern, Oberoesterreich, Austria

I also checked this site: http://digi.nacr.cz/prihlasky/
and there is only one possible candidate actually >from Prague:

Karl GOLDMANN born 1890 - son of Karl - could his father be Jewish and his
mother Catholic? No idea, but a possibility: http://tinyurl.com/2okjfa
The parents apparently married in a church. Father Karl was a Handschuhmacher?
- glovemaker - as far as I can read. Did this Karl step into the Prague
Judenrat to save his family?

The answer must lie in Prague in the Jewish Museum or in the Holocaust Museum
in Washington. It is hard to imagine that there are no extant documents on the
Prague Judenrat. So here are a few ideas for us all to work on.
