ViewMate photo IDs -- PRINZ/ENGEL/CHLAMTATSCH families #general

Caryn
 

These photos were in a collection of unidentified PRINZ/ENGEL/CHLAMTATSCH
family photos. The first photo was taken in England. The woman on the
right is Sofi Engel, the woman on the left is unidentified. The second
and third photos were taken in the same studio in Vienna but not
necessarily at the same time. There seems to be facial similarities
between the older woman and the young mother. The Prinz/Chlamtatsch
family, originally >from Holic, Czechoslovakia, went to live in Vienna
before WWII.

Patronymics Mirovich and Izshakovna #general

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

What are the Hebrew/Yiddish names for these patronymics? I just found
out about my ancestor's marriage record today and the patronymics are
those two.

Best.

researching scribes #general

David Laskin
 

I am researching my mother's family (Cohenim) which had a tradition of
Torah scribes going back several generations. I'd love to hear from
others who have scribes in their family trees. I know there is a
Biblical reference (First Chronicles) to "families of scribes" and I'm
wondering if this was an art passed down in families. Was it typical
(or necessary) for a scribe to be a Cohen? If anyone knows of books
or articles that deal specifically with the tradition of the scribe in
Jewish religion, family history, and culture, I'd be grateful to hear

from you. Many thanks. David Laskin, Seattle, WA USA

Does anyone know if birth records >from 1862 can be obtained. My
great-grandmother, Sophie FARRNBACHER, was born in Furth, Bavaria (Germany)

available, how can I obtain a copy?

Antwerp. Belgium Police Immig. Records #france

Samat773@...
 

My maternal grandfather and his brother Salman migrated >from Lithuania in
1904 with the original intent of going to South Africa.Along the way they
changed their minds with my grandfather coming to the US and his brother to
Antwerp.The Hamburg Passenger List shows them traveling to Grimsby GB on
July 18,1904.My grandfather left for the US >from Liverpool on January 28,
1905.

My search for Salman SACKS(SAKS,ZAK etc) has been fruitless.However,
recently I came across a Chaim Mordko SAKS In the Antwerp police record(
event date 1901-1915).Birthplace and birth date (1878,Pandelys)are those of
my granduncle.Jewish Gen has many ZAKS but no Chaim Mordko. Is there any way
I can get a more exact immigration date than that listed in the Police
record ? Can anyone suggest other possible sources of information ?


Thanks for any help genners can provide.

Searching RUBINSTEIN from Mokhre near Pinsk in the Russian Empire and YAHALOM in Israel #belarus

Carole Silverman
 

Megilat Pur'aniyotis by Abraham Asher Feinstein, published in Tel Aviv
in 1929 includes a description of the deaths of my grandfather
Ziskind Rubinstein; one of his daughters, Chaske; and his brother
Isaac (p.187). They lived in the village of Mokhre, near Pinsk, from
which they were kidnapped and murdered in the summer of 1920. My
grandmother, Chaya Rubinstein and her surviving children immigrated to
the US in January 1926 under the sponsorship of her oldest son who had
immigrated to the US in 1907 and settled in Los Angeles CA. Isaac
(actually David Isaac) Rubinstein's widow and four children immigrated
to Palestine in 1921, settled in Petah Tikvah and changed the family
name to Yahalom. I have viewed the British records of immigration and
name change. The four children consisted of two sons, Shmuel and
Eliezar and two daughters, whose names I do not know. The Rubensteins
who immigrated to the US stayed in touch with the Yahaloms for many
years but that connection ended as the generation died out. The
father of Ziskind and David Isaac was named Avigdor. I have a picture
from 1920 of the single cemetery stone placed in memory of my
grandfather and his brother. I am not aware of other Rubinstein
siblings.

I am interested in obtaining information regarding the Rubinstein
families that lived in Mokhre prior to 1920 and the Yahaloms of
Israel.

Perhaps you will find the book (booklet?) The Jews of Oklahoma to be
useful in your research:
http://www.oupress.com/ECommerce/Book/Detail/1565/the%20jews%20in%20oklahoma

My grandfather appears in an old photo on the cover, standing in front
of his father's store. :)

And this article provides larger historic context of Jews settling in
Oklahoma:
