Re: Wiltz = Dvinsk #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybruc@...>
 

A genner asked: "would it make sense to have it added to the various spellings of
Dvinsk in JewihsgGen' ShtetlSeeker for future researchers looking for Wiltz"

Since towns were spelled as the clerk heard them, and often the clerk was not
familiar with the foreign language or town names, Wiltz is as good as anything. If
you say Dvinsk to yourself, the D can get lost easily; the clerk heard the N as L.
But, of course, that interpretation is open to question, so try and find some
other indication whether it is the correct one or not.

But that doesn't mean that the mishearing should become an 'official' spelling.
Those spellings in gazeteers are the 'proper' spellings in various languages in
various time periods, transliterated to Latin letters if need be. Holynka in
Belorussian is Golynka in Russian and Alinka in Yiddish; all correct spellings in
the respective languages.

On the other hand, I once got a brochure that I asked for, sent to "Sa;;u
Bricljeo,er". That does not make it my name, it makes for a mistake, and as such,
it doesn't get memorialized - except it is so funny that I mention it here.
Similarly, the mistake that the clerk made is a 'one-off' which wouldn't get any
formal recognition.

Shalom,

With 2011 having flown past and 2012 on our doorstep, it's time to look back
at what we have achieved over the past year and look forward to even better
in the coming year. Apart >from the continued satisfaction I receive in
seeing the translations appear online, I am particularly moved by the teams
of people, literally >from all corners of the planet, who are behind these
translations and make these projects a reality. I would like to thank the
many, many volunteers who have made this all happen and hope to be in
contact with them in 2012 and see more or more people join our ranks.

During December, the last translations to be prepared for the Pinkas Lita
[Encyclopedia of Jewish communities, Lithuania] book went online and, once
again, I salute the amazing Shaul Yannai and Shimon Joffe for the mammoth
amount of work that went into all their hundreds of translations >from this
book. There are a number of articles of communities that weren't translated
and these will be added in the near future as expanded articles >from the
"Litvak Heritage" series that were kindly donated by Joel Alpert and Josef
Rosin.

I would like note the very generous contribution of Robin O'Neil, who in
addition to other research documents appearing in the Yizkor Book Project,
has submitted the entire, mind-provoking, "Rabka Four - Instruments of
Genocide and Grand Larceny" document, the first sections of which were added
online in December and will appear in its entirety within the next few
months.

This month the Zawiercie, Poland Yizkor Book was set up as a Translations
Fund and we're looking forward to seeing this project grow as funds come in.
Note that a very positive way of helping to see translations placed online
is by supporting this project or one of the many Translation Funds which
have been set up to bring about the professional translation of the Yizkor
books. If you feel able to support this effort, please go to the Yizkor
Book JewishGen-erosity page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to learn about the Translation Funds currently underway.

The Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project continues to gain momentum and is now
looking to compile a list volunteers who have access to libraries with
Yizkor book collections and are willing borrow a specific Yizkor book and
scan images for inclusion in the printed translation of these books. If you
have access to a library with Yizkor books and are willing to help out here,
please contact Joel Alpert whose contact information can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html

Re: Interpreting Lviv Information in GG Data Base #galicia

Morton Rumberg
 

Dear Ellen,

You ask some very important questions--questions that should be
aired so we all can benefit.

I am not an expert nor do I have any great insights to the old days in
Galicia, but I will offer what I think - emphasis on think - may be
what was going on at that time. I am a transcriber on the Lviv vital
records DB.

Your question 2A: it would appear likely that they are related. The
difference can be explained by handwriting and transcription error.
However, it is not proof, and proof is difficult to come by. There are
cases where similar, but not exact surnames, lived at the same
address and were not related, but I would venture that most similar
names at the same address (and registration number), are >from the
same family.

Your question 2B: they may be the same surname, however, you'll
need to verify that through other records, otherwise the question
will not be definitively answered. Similarly, your question 2C: yes,
they may be the same surname - then again, it may only be similar
but not the same family. You need additional proof before deciding.
Birth and death records can help corroborate the relationship.

Question 3: Population estimates can be found in an excellent book
I have used: Historical Atlas of East Central Europe, by Paul Robert
Magocsi. University of Washington Press, 1993. It's quite well done.
I paid $40 for it back then.

Your question 4A: there were pogroms which forced people to move;
taxes applied against Jews forcing them to move or suffer
consequences if they couldn't pay; the threat of military conscription;
the promise of a better job in a nearby location; marriage; and so on.
I suspect that back then, for many, times were hard and there was
always a great desire to improve one's fortunes, so they moved.
That's why immigration to the U.S. was so intense.

Your question 4C: Yes, but don't forget, they also tended to try to
better themselves economically or with studies and might move to
more promising locations.

I hope I've given you some information you can use.

Best of luck in your research.

The new Gesher Galicia Data Base has provided a treasure-trove of
new information for researchers. I note many upgrades already
since the data base was introduced last summer including an
explanation about the districts and the house number of the
Jewish hospital that is listed on many records.

New information answers some questions and then whets the
appetite to get others answered. If I had to guess, some of what
puzzles me is the result of the transcription process which is less
than perfect due to poor handwriting, poor condition of the source
materials, a variety of languages used in the documents, a different
alphabet and human error at both the initial recording of
information and in the transcription process. The questions below
all relate to Lviv.

1. House Numbers - I note that Juer Chameides lived at 320 3/4
in 1857, 220 3/4 in 1857 and 1863 and 220 St in 1864. This
seems to be a reminder that when some information looks
interesting, it should ultimately be checked against a copy of the
original document.

2. Spelling of Names - When there is a similarity in names but
different spellings, it is difficult to determine whether the
divergence in spelling is due to the surnames being different,
related families at the time choosing to spell their names
differently or different transcribers (both at the time the record
was created and when it was indexed) translating the alphabet in
different ways. For example:

A. In 1834 Kellman ORUCH and Meilach URECH both are listed as
living at house 45 3/4. In 1812 Hersch ORUCH lived at 129 3/4
and in 1844 Chaje Sara URECH is listed at the same address. Can
it be concluded that this is the same surname and they are related?

B. In 1811 Eisig WOSK lived at 58 3/4. In 1823, Charna WAZCK
lived at that address and in 1855, Josel WISCHIK lived there. Is that
the same surname?

C. My great great grandmother Feige Dobrisch's surname is listed in
various places as WOSK, BOSK and WALK but house numbers and
other information point to this being the same person. Perhaps
someone familiar with the transcription process can advise whether
WALLACH, WISCH, WOLLASCH might also be the same surname.
Also, would that imply that today's FALK, VOLK, WILK and
WALLACHs are anglicized versions of the same name?

3. Population at various dates - Can someone point me to a source
that would show the estimated Jewish population in Lviv in 1800,
1825, 1850, 1875 and 1900? This will help me put into context
the apparent closeness (same/similar house numbers and
inter-marriages) of people with surnames reflecting both my
father's paternal and maternal lines. I would like to understand if
this is likely a coincidence or were these families in some way
linked. (URICH, WOSK, ORDNER, FELD, SILBER, CHAMEIDES, KATZ,
JONAS, CZOPP)

4. Cultural Practices in the 1800s

A. Did people tend to live in the same place or did they move
frequently?

B. When daughters married, did they tend to move near their
husband's family or near their own?

C. Did people in the same line of work (eg jewelers) tend to live
near each other and inter-marry?

Shalom,

With 2011 having flown past and 2012 on our doorstep, it's time to look back
at what we have achieved over the past year and look forward to even better
in the coming year. Apart >from the continued satisfaction I receive in
seeing the translations appear online, I am particularly moved by the teams
of people, literally >from all corners of the planet, who are behind these
translations and make these projects a reality. I would like to thank the
many, many volunteers who have made this all happen and hope to be in
contact with them in 2012 and see more or more people join our ranks.

During December, the last translations to be prepared for the Pinkas Lita
[Encyclopedia of Jewish communities, Lithuania] book went online and, once
again, I salute the amazing Shaul Yannai and Shimon Joffe for the mammoth
amount of work that went into all their hundreds of translations >from this
book. There are a number of articles of communities that weren't translated
and these will be added in the near future as expanded articles >from the
"Litvak Heritage" series that were kindly donated by Joel Alpert and Josef
Rosin.

I would like note the very generous contribution of Robin O'Neil, who in
addition to other research documents appearing in the Yizkor Book Project,
has submitted the entire, mind-provoking, "Rabka Four - Instruments of
Genocide and Grand Larceny" document, the first sections of which were added
online in December and will appear in its entirety within the next few
months.

This month the Zawiercie, Poland Yizkor Book was set up as a Translations
Fund and we're looking forward to seeing this project grow as funds come in.
Note that a very positive way of helping to see translations placed online
is by supporting this project or one of the many Translation Funds which
have been set up to bring about the professional translation of the Yizkor
books. If you feel able to support this effort, please go to the Yizkor
Book JewishGen-erosity page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to learn about the Translation Funds currently underway.

The Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project continues to gain momentum and is now
looking to compile a list volunteers who have access to libraries with
Yizkor book collections and are willing borrow a specific Yizkor book and
scan images for inclusion in the printed translation of these books. If you
have access to a library with Yizkor books and are willing to help out here,
please contact Joel Alpert whose contact information can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html

these 4 new projects:

Yizkor Book Project, December 2011 #lodz #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

With 2011 having flown past and 2012 on our doorstep, it's time to look back
at what we have achieved over the past year and look forward to even better
in the coming year. Apart >from the continued satisfaction I receive in
seeing the translations appear online, I am particularly moved by the teams
of people, literally >from all corners of the planet, who are behind these
translations and make these projects a reality. I would like to thank the
many, many volunteers who have made this all happen and hope to be in
contact with them in 2012 and see more or more people join our ranks.

During December, the last translations to be prepared for the Pinkas Lita
[Encyclopedia of Jewish communities, Lithuania] book went online and, once
again, I salute the amazing Shaul Yannai and Shimon Joffe for the mammoth
amount of work that went into all their hundreds of translations >from this
book. There are a number of articles of communities that weren't translated
and these will be added in the near future as expanded articles >from the
"Litvak Heritage" series that were kindly donated by Joel Alpert and Josef
Rosin.

I would like note the very generous contribution of Robin O'Neil, who in
addition to other research documents appearing in the Yizkor Book Project,
has submitted the entire, mind-provoking, "Rabka Four - Instruments of
Genocide and Grand Larceny" document, the first sections of which were added
online in December and will appear in its entirety within the next few
months.

This month the Zawiercie, Poland Yizkor Book was set up as a Translations
Fund and we're looking forward to seeing this project grow as funds come in.
Note that a very positive way of helping to see translations placed online
is by supporting this project or one of the many Translation Funds which
have been set up to bring about the professional translation of the Yizkor
books. If you feel able to support this effort, please go to the Yizkor
Book JewishGen-erosity page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to learn about the Translation Funds currently underway.

The Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project continues to gain momentum and is now
looking to compile a list volunteers who have access to libraries with
Yizkor book collections and are willing borrow a specific Yizkor book and
scan images for inclusion in the printed translation of these books. If you
have access to a library with Yizkor books and are willing to help out here,
please contact Joel Alpert whose contact information can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html

As far as the November figures go, during this last month we have added
these 4 new projects:

Synagogue-Communities of Dillingen and Nalbach)

I am researching the surname, SERIO, >from Italy, possibly Sicily.
The surname "Serio" is mostly attested in Sicily today. Jews were an high
percentage of the population of the island in the Middle Ages but Jews were
expelled >from Sicily in 1492.
After the expulsion of 1492 some Jews converted and secretly practiced
Judaism (Anusim). But Jews could not live in Sicily for five hundred years:
today all Serios of Sicily are not Jews.
The surname "Serio" is attested as a Jewish surname in Tuscany in the 18th
century.

the LDS Family History Library. Currently he is the manager of the Slavic
Collection. He has visited archives throughout Eastern Europe. He has published

boards of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies and the
Federation of East European Family History Societies.

Yizkor Book Project, December 2011 #general

bounce-2347530-792487@...
 

Shalom,

With 2011 having flown past and 2012 on our doorstep, it's time to look back
at what we have achieved over the past year and look forward to even better
in the coming year. Apart >from the continued satisfaction I receive in
seeing the translations appear online, I am particularly moved by the teams
of people, literally >from all corners of the planet, who are behind these
translations and make these projects a reality. I would like to thank the
many, many volunteers who have made this all happen and hope to be in
contact with them in 2012 and see more or more people join our ranks.

During December, the last translations to be prepared for the Pinkas Lita
[Encyclopedia of Jewish communities, Lithuania] book went online and, once
again, I salute the amazing Shaul Yannai and Shimon Joffe for the mammoth
amount of work that went into all their hundreds of translations >from this
book. There are a number of articles of communities that weren't translated
and these will be added in the near future as expanded articles >from the
"Litvak Heritage" series that were kindly donated by Joel Alpert and Josef
Rosin.

I would like note the very generous contribution of Robin O'Neil, who in
addition to other research documents appearing in the Yizkor Book Project,
has submitted the entire, mind-provoking, "Rabka Four - Instruments of
Genocide and Grand Larceny" document, the first sections of which were added
online in December and will appear in its entirety within the next few
months.

This month the Zawiercie, Poland Yizkor Book was set up as a Translations
Fund and we're looking forward to seeing this project grow as funds come in.
Note that a very positive way of helping to see translations placed online
is by supporting this project or one of the many Translation Funds which
have been set up to bring about the professional translation of the Yizkor
books. If you feel able to support this effort, please go to the Yizkor
Book JewishGen-erosity page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to learn about the Translation Funds currently underway.

The Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project continues to gain momentum and is now
looking to compile a list volunteers who have access to libraries with
Yizkor book collections and are willing borrow a specific Yizkor book and
scan images for inclusion in the printed translation of these books. If you
have access to a library with Yizkor books and are willing to help out here,
please contact Joel Alpert whose contact information can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html

Shalom,

With 2011 having flown past and 2012 on our doorstep, it's time to look back
at what we have achieved over the past year and look forward to even better

ViewMate 21175/6/7 translation request - Polish marriage registration #general

HelenieIrit
 

Hello to all,

I will appreciate help with full translation for understanding the event. I've
posted 3 parts of a marriage registration:
1. At http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=21175 - the
bride column: Teme-Rize Turnschein >from Drohobycz was 60 years old.
2. At http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=21176 - the
groom column: Salomon Jakob WILF, born in Drohobycz. was more then 61 years
old.
3. At http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=21177 - the
note column of their marriage registration.

Although I've got one answer already [Thanks, Barbara], I would love to know
whether there is a clue why the couple was so mature at their marriage. Was it
late marriage, or 2nd marriage or late registration? Is there any info about a
child or children, or former marriages?

Thanks and all the best.
