On my family tree I have two brothers both living in New Jersey in the
same local area. One was called Louis and his brother was Jacob L or
JL and for a period of time JL also called himself Louis. So I have
two brothers inthe same local area using the same name. Try and sort
that one out on things like the Census ... its enough to drive you to

Strovitsa #general

Bea <blspabas@...>
 

Hello JGenners,

can anyone tell me where the place name of Strovitsa was, also what it would
be called now and where it may be today? I am researching a friends tree
but even though he told me it may have been somewhere in either Galicia,
Austria, Hungary, Poland or the Ukraine, I cannot find this place name
anywhere. I do not have any further information to go on, apart >from adding
that there is a Greek Strovitsa but the Greek one is not the one I am
looking for.

Hope you can help and thank you

Why Go to Bad Kudowa #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

In Germany in those days, as in the Catskills in the 1950s, it was
common for the women & children to take a vacation without their
husbands. One didn't have to be hugely wealthy, just middle class.

RIVLIN Family Gathering of 5000 Participants #general

Jules Feldman
 

In October 2009 we will be holding in Jerusalem a Gathering of the
RIVLIN family. Our previous family gathering took place in 1980
with 2600 of the family present. We are inviting all descendants
of Shlomo Zalman Rivlin who lived in Shklov, Belarus in the mid 18th
Century. We will not be surprised if it attracts 5000 members of the
family .

I am interested to know if JewishGenners have participated in similarly
large gatherings and what advice they can give our organising commitee.

Re: More Counties Added to On-Line Ireland Census 1911 #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

The counties which have been added onto the 1911 Irish Census should be
noted as to their locations in order for researchers to understand what they
are looking for.

Counties Antrim and Down are in Northern Ireland and County Kerry is in the
Republic of Ireland or Southern Ireland.

County Antrim's major city is the capital of Northern Ireland, Belfast.

County Down contains parts of Belfast and a number of small places.

County Kerry contains such well-known towns as Killarney, Listowel and
Tralee.

Given these locations, one might wonder how many Jews might actually be
living in these places. Instances can be found by searching for well-known
Irish Jewish family names as follows:

You will find many COHENs listed in the Census, with 65 listed in Antrim, 3
in Down, and none in Kerry. However, you may also find that a proportion of
them are listed as non-Jews such as the family in County Down who were
originally >from Dublin and were listed as Church of England.

What follows are several references to Belfast families found in the Census.

Samuel and Florence CLEIN and their daughter Annie are listed as Jews in
Belfast. Samuel was a furniture dealer born in Russia as was his wife,
whilst his daughter was born in Belfast City.

Sarah LEVITAS was listed as Jewish and born in Zagare, Lithuania. The entry
stated that she was married, but she was listed as head of household and
there is no mention of her husband. Her children, Rebecca and Benjamin,
were born in Bangor, Wales, and her boarder, Samuel Corb, was born in
Schudi, Lithuania.

Isaac LEVITAS and his wife were born in Russia. One of their children was
born in England and the other in Belfast.

Frank WINE, was a jeweler, born in Russia. His wife Julia Nathan Wine, was
born in Manchester, and their two children, were born in Belfast. They
even had a visitor, a Mark SUGDEN, a wallpaper merchant, who was >from
Manchester.

Samuel Samuels, was formerly Dmitrovski and born in Kamentetz Litovsk,
Poland. He arrived in Belfast on August 15, 1910, and was just beginning
his stay there when he was captured on the 1911 Census. He later became a
wealthy draper.

One of the most notable of Belfast Jews, Sir Otto JAFFE, was not listed in
the Census. His family originally came >from Schwerin, Germany, and he
served as Mayor of Belfast and was the largest exporter of Irish linen in
the world. It was known that he left Belfast in 1916 for London, but he
should have been in Belfast in 1911. Of further interest in regard to the
Jaffe family is Arthur and Marie JAFFE. Arthur, a barrister, and his wife,
refused to state their religion. Arthur may have been the son of Sir Otto
Jaffe.

Another Belfast Jew who is missing >from the Census was Rabbi Yitzhak HaLevi
Herzog, who only became Rabbi of Belfast in 1916 and therefore was not there
in 1911 to be counted. He was the father of the sixth President of Israel,
Chaim Herzog, who was born in Belfast in 1918.

So, as one can see, the Census is of great interest particularly as it lists
places of birth and can lead a researcher to locate pertinent birth records
whose location might not have readily been known. This also confirms the
movement of the members of the Jewish community in these counties.
