Searching for current where-abouts of family members #france

Debbie Lifshitz
 

Hi!

Because of the imminent threat to Jewish graves >from the authorities
of the Parisian Cemeteries, I need to find the descendants of the
following people, as quickly as possible:

1. The children or grandchildren of Paulette POLAK (or POLLACK) (b.
Paris, 16eme. Sep.1906). She was the daughter of Joseph POLACK
(b.1880, Paris maybe 16eme) and Emma TEDESCO (b. 1881 Paris,16eme)

2. The children or grandchildren of Nicole TEDESCO (b. Paris ~ 1912 ?,
16eme), she may have married someone with the family name JEAN-BLOCH.
She was the daughter of Arthur TEDESCO (b. 1887, Paris 16eme) and
Odette Jeanne LOWENSTEIN.

Many thanks for your help!!

Re: Question over name after divorce/annulment #general

Adelle Gloger
 

Recently, the question was asked regarding a woman keeping her married
name or going back to her maiden name after divorce or annulment in 19th
century Poland.

My grandmother was born in 1872 in Tarnopol. Her birth was not registered
with the civil authorities until 1891 so that she could be married that
year using her father's last name. At the same time her parents had their
marriage registered with the civil authorities.

Her marriage, I was told, lasted only about 2 years, ending in divorce.
There were no children of this marriage.

Several years later she remarried (my paternal grandfather) around 1900
in Tarnopol using her maiden name.

I have never seen the divorce documents, so do not know how the issue of
reverting back to maiden name was handled. RE: divorce documents -- do not
know if there was a "get" in addition to a civil divorce or vice-versa.

Misha Alexandrovich #general

Ann Rabinowitz
 

Many of us research our rabbinic roots, but not to be forgotten are the
cantors/chazans in our families who added such beauty and enjoyment to the lives
of those they served. With the advent of the Internet and tools such as
YouTube, much can be read about and heard of those cantors of the past (and
present). Recently, whilst looking for something else, I happened to find
a YouTube piece,
http://www.frequency.com/video/yidish-lid-misha-alexandrovich-yiddish/7946692,
featuring the wonderful tenor voice of Chazan Misha Alexandrovich (1914-2002),
who was born in Berzpils, Latvia and passed away in Munich, Germany.

The YouTube piece, "Yiddish Lid" (Yiddish Song), not only provides the
opportunity to hear one of the great Jewish voices of the past, but has an
accompanying group of photos of the Yiddish world with Jews at prayer, at work,
at play and otherwise involved in their lives. Unfortunately, the photos are
not specifically identified, although some have Yiddish wording on the
buildings and English titles (such as one >from the town of Orla, Poland).

Alexandrovich was known as the "wunderkind". You may see more about him at:
http://geoffreyshisler.com/Alexandrovich.html
and http://faujsa.fau.edu/alexandrovich/ (Includes full songs >from four of his
albums at the FAU Judaica Sound Archives. One of these is a beautiful rendition
of "Kinderyorn" or childhood years). In addition, you may find further
recordings of Alexandrovich where he is listed as one of Three Yiddish Tenors:
Misha Alexandrovich, Moshe Koussevitzky and Leibele Waldman. He is also
included in Cantors in the Opera House such as Herman Jadlowker (Riga, Latvia),
Alexander Kipnis (Zhytomyr, Ukraine), Moshe Koussevitzky (Smargon, Lithuania),
Jan Peerce (New York City, family >from Gorodetz, Belarus), Joseph Schmidt
(Davidivka, Ukraine), Joseph Schwartz (Riga, Latvia), Yosef Shlisky (Ostrowiec,
Poland), Friedrich Schorr (Oradea, Romania), and Richard Tucker (New York City,
family >from Bessarabia, Romania).

Enjoy!

Senate Finance Committee Subcommittee Hearing on Social Security Death Index (SSDI) #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Senate Committee on Finance Subcommittee on Fiscal Responsibility and
Economic Growth scheduled a hearing for Tuesday, March 20, at 10:00 AM
(EDT). The title of the hearing is : "Tax Fraud by Identity Theft, Part 2:
Status, Progress, and Potential Solutions." Part of the hearing involves SB
1534, one of the four bills introduced in Congress (reported on this forum
in December) which if enacted, would limit access to the SSDI. (The Social
Security Death Index (SSDI) is the commercial version of the Death Master
File (DMF). See this website for information and for watching the hearing

Those testifying include Chairman Nelson, Ranking Member Mike Crapo (R-ID)
and representatives >from the Internal Revenue Service, Treasury Department,

The hearing is a fact-finding hearing, and it is not expected that any
action will be taken at this time. Briefly, the bill addresses tax fraud
and establishes penalties, and user id numbers for those who file about
identity fraud . Section 9 (page 6) restricts access to the Death Master
File for the calendar year of the person's death and the calendar year
following, disclosure of information on a deceased person listed in the DMF

Teachers Application in Lithuania 1921-1941 #general

William Yoffee
 

Teachers Applications in Lithuania 1921-1941

A list of applications for teachers' licenses during the period between the
two World Wars is now available on all the LitvakSIG District Research Group's
Shutterfly websites as an Excel spread sheet. The list described here is an
example of the type of list that will be published more frequently in the
future by LitvakSIG on subjects and containing data that relate to most if
not all of the Districts of Lithuania. Before analyzing the data on this
list, some historical background is in order to illustrate their
significance and enhance their understanding.

To be a teacher in Lithuania between the two World Wars, especially a Jewish
Teacher, was to be in the middle of controversy about education, language,
nationality, local history and politics generally. Before 1919, no
independent country of Lithuania existed. It was either Russian or Polish
including a period during which it was the Grand Duchy that included what
are now the Baltic countries, the Ukraine and Belarus, and for a time was
part of a confederation with Poland. Polish was the principal language of
the nobility and the intelligentsia. Lithuanian was the language of the
peasants. Jews used Yiddish with a smattering of other local languages
including Russian for use in the market place. Religion was Roman Catholic,
Greek Catholic (Russian Orthodox) and Orthodox Jewish and each minority
sponsored its own schools. Later on, schools were established by groups of a
specific political persuasion (for example; communists, socialists,
Bundists, and Zionists of different types). The national majority already
taught Lithuanian in its own schools, but the minorities, Jews (by far the
largest), Poles, Germans, and Belarussians, each taught in its own language
and promoted its own religious, cultural and historical traditions.

The newly independent Lithuanian Government, intent on establishing a
national identity, began a policy of transitioning the educational system to
teach in a common language (Lithuanian) and to teach the newly discovered
history of Lithuania. It implemented this policy during the interwar period
to the detriment of the schools sponsored by the minorities.

The Teachers Applications List contains 1519 lines of data on individuals
all but one of whom are listed by Lithuanian and Jewish surname. There are
680 different Jewish surnames. There are also Jewish maiden surnames for 242
women. The persons listed were born in 230 different places and were living
in 138 towns, districts and countries, including countries other than
Lithuania. Of those individuals listed, 465 declared an occupation. Only 204
of these declared themselves as teachers or in related occupations
including, for example, teachers of different languages, of science, of
mathematics, of Hebrew and including librarians and eleven rabbis.

The date range of this list includes 4 applications made before independent
Lithuania had begun to organize its education system. Over 300 applications
were made in the period 1921-1938. In the period 1939 to 1941, which marked
the beginning of Soviet influence, until the onset of WWII, there were 291
dated applications listed. The period >from 1944 to 1948, which marked the
beginning of the post WWII period of Soviet domination, accounted for a
total of 22 dated applications. Almost half of all the applications are not
dated.

A large number of family groups are included, particularly for the years
1939, 1940, 1941, and years after WWII. Two common characteristics of these
groups are that members of the groups are listed after someone designated as
"Head of Household" whose application date is given. Others, listed as
family members, have no application date listed. All persons named in the
group are included in the same file according to their file numbers. Very
often, the Head has a designated profession, while the other family members
usually have none. Some of the family members may not even live in the same
location or even in the same country as the "Head". There are several
possible explanations. One is that the application of the Head, made during
the period of growing Soviet influence, was dependent on the political
acceptability of his or her family members. Another is that during this
period of political uncertainty and impending hostilities, the Head took the
opportunity to record members of the family for additional identification
purposes. Nevertheless this list provides valuable genealogical information
about some Jews and some Jewish families that existed before the Holocaust
and about some who survived.

Lists of the 680 Jewish surnames and the 242 Jewish maiden names are
available to ANYONE by contacting me at kidsbks@verizon.net .

Access all newly translated records are available, over a period of 5 years,
to participants of the various District and General Research Groups of
LitvakSIG for at least 18 months before they become available to the public
on the All Lithuanian Database (ALD). Participants also have access to all
earlier lists that have been translated, and to additional relevant
information that will not appear anywhere else. For further information

question regarding name: Ingberg or Gincberg? #poland

Elizabeth Jackson
 

Hello members! I am researching the family name INGBERG of various
locations throughout Poland, with specific relatives having resided in
Warsaw, Bialystok and Lodz. When I research the name INGBERG on databases
several listings come up for the spelling GINCBERG. I did have an Uncle
residing in Bialystok. No listings come up for the name INGBERG in
Bialystok, but there are several listings for the name GINCBERG. I am
wondering if anyone can provide me with some insight into whether these
two names could be one and the same or if they are entirely different
families.

Any information will be greatly appreciated. You may reply to me
privately at: cattheater@yahoo.com
Thank you!
