Jews In Alcoholic Beverage Industry #general

Alan Weiser <alanboy@...>
 

I am researching the subject of Jews in the alcoholic beverage industry of
distilling, brewing, distribution, and/or serving/selling that took place in
Galicia during the 19th century. I would appreciate receiving >from you any family
stories related to this industry; such as ownership, employment and/or
lease-holder, confrontations with serfs or government agencies, and/or information
related to legal or other restrictions placed on Jews to prevent them >from
participating in this industry.

Please respond to me directly.

SIROTA family from Butrimonys, Lithuania #general

David Ellis
 

This note documents my search along one branch of my family tree, the SIROTA family
from Butrimonys, Lithuania.
My g-grandmother Eva SIROTA (maiden name) was born in Lithuania in 1852 and
(according to US census records) married Abrahm ELLIS in 1871. They immigrated to
the United States in April 1888, lived first in Manhattan and then in Brooklyn, and
raised five children. She died on Jun 29 1928, five years after her husband.

Their children who survived childhood were: Anna (Chana Frida), 1876 - Jun 2 1962
Bertha (Buna), Apr 16 1884 - Apr 1969
Charles (Betzalel), Sep 15 1886 - Feb 1969
Jackson (Yakir), Nov 3 1890 - Nov 1918
Robert (Ruven Lazar), Nov 3 1890 - Feb 1987
Three other children died in infancy, but we don't know their names.

Her death certificate lists her parents' names as Jacob Sirota and Rachael Sirota.
According to her tombstone, her Hebrew name was Chava bat Yakir, so her son Jackson
was clearly named after her father.

I believe I found a matching Revision History (family census) record in the All
Lithuania Database on jewishgen.org, >from the town of Butrimonys in 1858. One
household shows:
Yaker SIROTA, b. 1806, father: Abram (my g-g-grandfather)
Sorka, b. 1810, Yaker's wife (my g-g-grandmother?)
Rivka, b. 1841, daughter; Libka, b. 1846, daughter; Movsha, b. 1849, son;
Chava, b. 1852, daughter (my g-grandmother); Chana, b. 1854, daughter;
Itsko SIROTA, b. 1810, father: Abram; Geska, b. 1840(!), Itsko's second wife;
David, b. 1834, son; Iokhved, b. 1838, David's wife, father: Nosel Wulf, b. 1837;
son, conscripted Berko SIROTA, b. 1803, head of household, left 1854, father:
Nosel; Nosel, b. 1827, son, left 1854

Yakir is an unusual given name, and Chava's date of birth matches exactly. There
is one discrepancy: Yaker's wife is listed here as named Sorka, which doesn't
match up with the name Rachael >from Eva's death record.

My g-g-grandfather Yaker also appeared in the 1834 Revision History record:
Iaker SIROTA, b. 1806, father: Abram
Elka, b. 1808, wife (my g-g-grandmother?)
Itsko SIROTA, b, 1810, father: Abram
Fradka, b. 1809, Itsko's (first) wife
Berko SIROTA, b. 1803, head of household
Sorka, b. 1804, Berko's wife

This was before any of the children were born, and Yakir had a different wife(?) It
looks like the two Sorkas were different people, given their different birth years.

So what can I say about my g-g-grandmother? Was her name Rachael, Sorka or Elka?
It looks like my g-grandmother was one of five children, and I tried to find some
record of her siblings, but I was unable to find any immigration records for them,
nor did I find any trace of them in the Yad Vashem death archives.

Nobody among the dozens of relatives I've contacted, all of whom are descended from
my g-grandmother, knows anything about her brother Movsha or her sisters Rivka,
Libka, and Chana. I didn't even ask about Itsko's family.

The Revision History records show at least six other SIROTA families in Butrimonys,
but I have no clue how they might be related. I don't see many SIROTAs in
Lithuania other than in Butrimonys.

At least three other people are researching SIROTA relatives in Butrimonys. I have
exchanged e-mail messages with them, and they are all descended >from Leiser SIROTA,
son of Shevel. These names do not appear in the Revision History lists, so again
I can't seem to find a connection.

As a matter of general interest, the surname SIROTA appears to be derived >from a
Russian word meaning "orphan". This is as far as I've been able to get in my
research. Suggestions for how I can best proceed will be most welcome. Thanks
in advance to anybody who can offer help.

HELLER family from Marienbad/ Marianske Lazne or Lazne Kynzvart #austria-czech

Debbie Bozkurt <debbieinscotland@...>
 

I have been trying to find my family of HELLER's for years, on census
all places of birth ranged >from Austria, Vienna, Prussia to Germany. I
had a wonderful break through this week when I got an email >from a
lady whose husband's 2 x great grandmother was a Babetha HELLER and
the lady told me Babetha was the daughter of my 3 x Grandfather
Marcus/Markus HELLER, proved by marriage certificate and English
Census. Previously I had only the Head of the family Marcus HELLER,
sons Ignatz, Emanuel and David (my 2 x Great Grandfather) and a
daughter Hannah/Anna living in Pell Street, London >from the 1861
census, Babetha married in 1860 hence not realising she existed. I
have traced Babetha through the census and she was much more
particular with her place of birth and in 1871 she quotes she was born
in Marienbad, Austria and later in Bohemia. Marcus HELLER was born
about 1800 and the 5 children now found were born in the 1830s and
1840s, the family came to London after 1851 and before 1861, all the
boys were Cabinet Makers, though David worked as a waiter when young.

I then tried putting HELLER and Marienbad in google when I came across
a great website by Judith Berlowitz whereby there was a HELLER family
tree headed by Emanuel HELLER, with a brother Mordecai born about 1794
(Markus - Jewish name on Synagogue Record), Mordecai also had the name
Ignatz in brackets, also was various offspring with the name Babette
(similar to my new found Aunt Babetha), maybe this was all a
coincidence, with my family of London HELLER's having the same names
born in the same area. The town these HELLER's came >from was Lazne
Kynzvart, which looking at a map seems quite close to Marienbad.

I have tried looking at the SIG and have found the towns mentioned but
I don't know where I could find the births of my Aunt's and Uncle's
assuming the town of Marienbad quoted on the census is right, can
anyone as I am a complete novice when it comes to Austria/Czech Jewish
Genealogy point me in the right direction, I must admit to being a
little confused as this is not my normally geographical area of
research.

Also if anyone knows of this family, please let me know, would love to
find out more about where they came >from and my 3 x Great Grandmother
who died before the 1861 census, not sure if she came over from
Eastern Europe to London.

Kind Regards

29th International Conference on Jewish Genealogy Announces Keynote Speaker: Father Patrick Desbois #austria-czech

David Mink
 

On behalf of the 29th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, we
are extremely pleased to announce that the distinguished French priest,
author, and humanitarian, Father Patrick Desbois, will be the keynote
speaker at the opening session in Philadelphia, Sunday, August 2, 2009. His
speech will be, "The Holocaust by Bullets: A Priest's Journey to Uncover the
Truth Behind the Murder of 1.5 million Jews," which is also the title of his
book.

The grandson of a deportee to the Nazi Rawa Ruska forced-labor Camp in
Ukraine, Father Desbois is best known for his work in searching for and
uncovering mass graves in Ukraine and for his book, "The Holocaust by
Bullets."

"My book is an act of prevention of future acts of genocide," Desbois said.
Winner of the B'nai B'rith International Award for Outstanding Contribution
to Relations with the Jewish People, Father Desbois is secretary to the
French Conference of Bishops for Relations with Judaism, advisor to the
Cardinal-Archbishop of Leon and advisor to the Vatican on the Jewish
Religion. Father Desbois is the president of Yahad in Unum
(www.yahadinunum.org), whose mission is to increase knowledge and
cooperation between Catholic and Jews.

Commenting on Father Desbois, Conference Co-Chair David Mink said, "We are
extremely pleased to have Father Desbois speak at our conference. He has
performed selfless acts of kindness for the many people of Jewish heritage
who trace their ancestry to Eastern Europe and have not been able to record
the death of loved ones on their family tree."

The Conference in Philadelphia, August 2-7, 2009, will include programs
featuring archivists, researchers and genealogists >from around the world.
For more information, visit www.Philly2009.org.

Registration for the Conference and the Hotel are now open.

Re: Cemetery Records - STECKERL #austria-czech

Regarding the filmed death registers:

Film 2273940 is the original death register >from the IKG.

Films 1347639 and 1347640 are the copied registers, which generally have
almost the same information, but are more likely to be less complete.
In most cases you're better off with the originals. If you do decide to
look at these, film 1347639 should have deaths >from May; my notes show
that it has all of the records through 19 July, and some records into
November (there is that much deviation >from chronological ordering),
while the first record in film 1347640 is >from 20 July.

Film 2409344 contains index cards, which are an alphabetic index into
the [above] registers. Given that you know the exact date of death,
this is not likely to be very useful. However, the entries in the
registers are not in precise chronological order, and such an index
could help you find the entry if it is far >from where you might expect
it to be. These index cards can be very useful when you don't have a
precise date, or when you are looking for new information related to a
surname.

Film 2411835 is a register of military deaths. This could include the
correct record. I don't understand the records enough to guess whether
you would be more likely to find this one in in the military register or
the general register.

Dear Jenners,
I thanked everyone personally in response to my query about trains >from Minsk to
Antwerp. So now I have another question---in 1912 did my mother need to be
sponsored to come to America? I know she came over alone, no relatives.
Second question how do I get in touch with Father Desbois. I have information
about a 'killing field" in Belarus that he might be interested in pursuing.
