Reply to Announcing NALDEX - [Name Adoption List Index] #germany

Judith Elam
 

The NALDEX is a wonderful, and much anticipated, addition to the All-Germany
database! Many thanks to all involved for all your hard work!

I have a question. On the original list, are the people who are listed
consecutively by page number related? For example, I see that the number
for my gggg-grandfather Hirsch Lewin GOLDSTEIN of Krojanke is 632/111.
Below him is listed Wittwe Lewin Casper GOLDSTEIN of Krojanke, number
633/113, yet they are probably NOT related because Hirsch Lewin's father was
Lewin Simon, not Lewin Casper. I have not been able to establish a
connection so far.

Similarly, my gggg-grandfather, Israel Samuel WEINBERG's number is 2272/34.
He was living in Dirschau in 1810, but died in Elbing in 1836. Above him is
listed Lewin Abraham WEINBERG, number 2271/39, of Elbing. I have often
wondered if they are related, but have not been able to prove or disprove a
connection so far. Age-wise, they could be brothers.

Conference Recording Announcement #austria-czech

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

We've arranged with the well-regarded, experienced digital media company
Conference Resource LLC to record at least 121 conference sessions and sell
those recordings during and after the conference. The recordings will be in
the versatile MP3 format (that runs on PCs, Macs, and any MP3 audio device
with a USB port). They will be issued in a plastic case with a custom
printed label. There are two ways to purchase the sessions that have been
approved for recording:

- Individual Sessions: in CD format at $9.95 each if purchased during
the conference, or $11.95 plus shipping and handling (S&H) after the
conference

- Full Set of Sessions: in Flash Drive format at $134 each if purchased
prior to the conference, $149 at the conference, or the same price plus S&H
after the conference.

Why buy such recordings? By having them, you can benefit even more >from the
conference and advance your family history research, as follows:

If you're attending the full conference – you can take part in other
conference events and still have access to sessions that occurred on the
day(s) or hours that you did other things (such as researching your roots at
the Resource Center, attending SIG or BOF meetings, networking, visiting
vendors, or enjoying film screenings and discussions with directors of
award-winning films). What a great way to flexibly plan your conference
week!

If you're attending part of the conference -- you can purchase individual
sessions that matter to you and were held on the day(s) you couldn't attend,
and listen to them at your own convenience.

If you weren't able to attend any part of the conference -- you can purchase
and listen at your own convenience to the session(s) that matter most to
you, or to the entire set of recorded conference sessions.

And all these options share three other key benefits --
1. You'll have ALL the spoken text of the speaker(s) at the sessions you've
chosen to purchase. That way, if you attended a session that was recorded,
and the notes you took during the session weren't clear or if you missed
something -- you can just listen to the session again, and verify or fill-in
those facts!

2. Another plus is that you'll also be able to listen to a session and a
given speaker more than once, if a concept you've heard isn't somehow clear
but is very important to you.

3. You'll also have these sessions and/or the full set of recorded sessions
as a reference tool in advancing your research, whenever it becomes helpful
to do so.

This conference's organizers didn't create the concept of selling recorded
sessions -- this has been a favorite purchase of conference attendees for
quite a few years, it's considered so valuable!

Contact conference Resource LLC at www.myconferenceresource.com, or look for
their sales table at the conference.

Remember - Online registration ends on July 31. Last chance to sign up for
all meal events and Embassy visits!

Save $$$ over on-site registration.

1744 Hungarian census - Mattersdorf #austria-czech

Paul King
 

Because of technical difficulties apparently at Ms. Vogel's end, I am
sending this query to the SIG re her posting of 29 July 2011:

Can this Mattersdorf census be found in the 19 volume Magyar Zsido
Okeleveltar? If so, which volume? I am curious as to how many enumerated
people came >from Moravian or even Bohemian towns and villages.

Berkovic restaurant/radio Prague #austria-czech

pinardpr@...
 

Dear SIGgers,

John Berkeley of Warwick, UK had questions about a Restaurant named Rosenbaum in Prague and Czech
Radio's archives recently.

My 1938, 1939 and 1940 Prague telephone books list under the rubric "Restaurace" the following:
"Rosenbaum" [Prague] I., Dlouha tr. 41. It is not listed in the directory for 1931, and I do not have
any for the interceding years. There is no listing in the 1941 directory. Thus, either Rosenbaum's
was dissolved in late 1940/early 1941 or it was the effect of the authorities excluding Jews >from
having telephones at the time.

Dlouha trida 41 became Dlouha 33 (Lange Gasse 33) after the Nazis renamed and renumbered
Prague's streets (in 1940/41). The house's conscription number (cislo popisne) in what was then
Praha I-Stare Mesto is 731. This is the famous Beit HaAm, a very large building complex that
exists to this day, and which was the home to numerous Zionist institutions in the pre-war
period and even during the so-called Protectorate (e.g., the Palaestina Amt/Palestinsky urad,
the Keren Kajemet Lejisrael, etc.)

As for hospitality services, Rosenbaum had competitors in the Beit HaAm itself, such as the
famous cafe and restaurant Aschermann (owner Armin Rado, later murdered at Sobibor-Ossowa).
Around the back of the complex at Hastalska 20, the Jewish Community organized a restaurant
in December 1940 for middle-class people called the Mittelstandskueche/Stredostavovska
kuchyne. The mission of the latter was to provide food at reasonable prices, but catering to a
wealthier clientele than the Volkskueche/Lidova kuchyne (located elsewhere), which served those
the Nazis had driven into abject poverty.

Regrettably, I do not know which floor housed the restaurant Rosenbaum, however.

The Beit HaAm served as a warehouse for looted Jewish books after the closure of the Zionist i
nstitutions and the deportation of their staff (ca. 1942). As part of the building, the restaurant
Rosenbaum may also have served that purpose at the time.

Today, the Beit HaAm building is once again a vibrant address with a tourist hostel, the art gallery
and cafe NoD, the club Roxy and at least two restaurants. Regrettably, there is no memorial there
of the people or institutions it once housed.

As for Czech Radio's archives -- they do exist and can be found at this web address:

Shalom and all the best,

Dear Fellow J-Genners,
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 Holics, Czechoslovakia, went to live in
Vienna before WWII.

Re: Mistake or name change #austria-czech

Hello everybody
Elisabeth Stamminger-Sonnenfeld asked: is Israel and Izidor the same first
name ?
In one of my families at least 3 men named Israel were called Isidore or
Isi. And I know several other people who changed their initial Jewish name
Israel to the less specific Isidore.

For those who may have had ancestors in the Ukrainian town of Ostroh
(Ostrog), photographs have been taken of the *entire* 1795 census.

The 1795 Census occurred before surnames were adopted, so it may not be
useful unless you have data on your 19th century ancestors. It lists
the occupation of the head of each household and the names of all
household occupants. The census consists of 550 pages, both in Polish
and in Russian.

If you are interested in joining the Ostroh Translation Group, please
e-mail me for further info.

possible to honor them.)
