Re: German Litvaks #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybruc@...>
 

My family in Russia also went to Germany to the doctor, and my gg
uncle was born in a hospital, according to his descendents - this
was about 1860! They lived in the then-border town of Raczki near
Augustow.

They also said they were Litvaks - but I don't think they meant
'>from Lithuania' which didn't exist. Litvaks were the Northern
Ashkenazi, regardless of country; the Galicianers lived in the South,
again regardless of country. However there were many cultural
differences (which you can check online), and if a Litvak moved to
Ukraine they stayed Litvaks - at least most did.

Where is my uncle, Jacob WEINBERG? #general

sue kriloff
 

Dear Genners,

i am looking for my father's brother, Jacob WEINBERG, born 1/5/19,
Warsaw, Poland. Can you find him? In 1947, uncle Jacob came to Belgium
where he waited to go to Palestine. He never made it to Palestine.
Instead, he was sent to a refugee center in Brussels, Belgium. He
wrote a number of letters to the Belgian government about his poor
health resulting >from the camps, how terribly he was treated in
Belgium, and his desire to leave Belgium. In 1948, the Belgian
government removed him >from the refugee center and sent him back
to Poland. The Belgian and Polish governments don't know where he
was sent to in Poland.

He had an attorney while he was in the refugee center. The
attorney's name is unknown. I thought the attorney's records would
say where he went. I cannot locate these records.

Where is uncle Jacob?

I have done extensive research and cannot find the answer to this
question. I don't know where else to search. It will take great minds
to answer this question. Genners, you have great minds. Can you find
uncle Jacob?

Sincerely,
Sue Kriloff

I am looking for GRINBERG / GREENBERG family >from Letichev, Nowo
Konstantinow, Nowo Constantine, Constantine, Mezibuz, Prosokov and

I found a few families related to MEDOVOY / MEDOVOI / MEDOVAYA and
Kalyhzner / Kalushiner / Kalish and Isirov in searching Yadvashem
and Ellis Island listed by various of the Medovoi / Medovaya families

There seems to be part of the family that was Romanian as the
YadVashem posting sheets show that some of them spoke Romanian.

What can you find in the latest issue (#99) of Revue du Cercle de
Genealogie Juive, Paris, France?*

*
The descendants of Raphael Vorms >from Bionville (**Moselle**) - *part
one: two generations

Louis Vorms and Guy Worms, both descending >from Raphael Vorms (deceased
around 1763) and his two sons Hayman and Salomon, trace the family which
is the only one to have perpetuated the name of their place of origin,
Bionville (or in German: Bingen) as part of their family name. The
article is illustrated by copies of the source documents, especially the
"plaids annaux", reports about the yearly meeting called by the local
sire where all family heads were due to attend.

*How to find and obtain vital records in **Poland** and **Galicia**. *

* *Basile Ginger and Daniel Vangheluwe publish a practical and step-by-
step "how-to" manual for genealogists in France who speak no Polish but
at least some English. It updates the Poland chapter in /Guide pratique
de genealogie juive en //France// et a l'etranger/, by Basile Ginger,
published by our Society. The changes in on-line accessibility of the
catalogues and databases makes it easy now to obtain most documents
without leaving one's desk

*Vital records >from **Constantine** (**Algeria**) 1843-1895 *

Fernand Deray announces the completion of his /opus magnum/: indexing
all existing vital records of the Departement Constantine, one of the
three administrative partitions of Algeria. The source is basically the
/CAOM-Centre des Archives d'Outre-Mer/ in Aix-en-Provence. The result
of Deray's work, covering 15,000 events, is searchable on our website
www.genealoj.org <http://www.genealoj.org/>, with full access in the
Members'Corner.

*Algerian Jewish assimilation after the Cremieux Decree. *

Joelle Allouche-Benayoun presents a sociological description of the
life, culture, religious and social practice of the Algerian Jews after
their sudden change of status: the Cremieux Decree of 1870 transforming
"natives" into full-fledged French nationals. The assimilation process
is shown over more than a century, compiled >from a massive bibliography.

* Hebrew monograms*

Eliane Roos-Schuhl takes the cue in Pierre Kogan=92s article about the
Marx Brothers in Revue # 95 to pinpoint the monogram /lamed peh quf /set
on Mordechai (Simon II) Marx's headstone (i.e. a graphical arrangement
combining the three characters in one elegant single composition). This
set of three characters "according to the small count" means that the
date that follows does not include the thousands (thus 5770 would read
770).

and Russians >from ASF- /Aktion Suehnezeichen Friedensdienste/ ( Action

Since the Nesvizh (Belarus) 1850 Revision List project was recently
completed, the remainder of the 1874 record indexing is nearly
complete, and there are funds remaining in our project account, we

start. We will be getting underway shortly. Please contact me for
additional information if you are interested.

funds. We are short about $350 in order to cover these records, which
are >from scattered years between 1836 and 1860. If you are interested
