Sept. 9th JGS (NY) meeting #belarus

mayharri@...
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society invites you to attend its next meeting -
"The Next Generation - Genealogical and Archival Databases: Retooling the Tools."

Sunday, September 9, 2012 at 2:00 P.M.
Center for Jewish History
15 West 16th St.
New York, NY

Speakers: Miriam Weiner and Michael Glickman

This program is a joint presentation by Miriam Weiner, President of the Routes
to Roots Foundation (RTRF), and Michael Glickman, Chief Operating Officer of the
Center for Jewish History (CJH), featuring a visual presentation of the new
collaboration between RTRF and CJH. The RTRF website includes a comprehensive
searchable archive database covering document holdings relevant to Jewish life
in five countries (and portions of two others) in Central and Eastern Europe, an
image database, and several searchable name databases for various localities. The
CJH website features its Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) which integrates the
holdings of CJH's five partners into one searchable database, as well as separate
pages for each of the five partners and a page for the Ackman & Ziff Family
Genealogy Institute.
The lecture will be the first public viewing of the new OPAC database with the
integration of the RTRF archive and image databases, thereby expanding access to
valuable historical and genealogical material >from both collections. This
collaboration is the first of several which are in process at CJH. Mr. Glickman
will also discuss the robust efforts underway to expand access to digital material
and the collections of the CJH partners.

The program is free to members of JGSNY and CJH; there is a $5 charge for guests.

The Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute at CJH will be open at 11:00 A.M.
with access to research materials and computers.

Re: Jewish Documents in Church Records? #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Dear Barbara:

The matter of Jewish records in church registers is an important one, so
thanks for bringing it up.

However, it's essential to remember that, before 1 Jan 1876, Germany had
no unified system for keeping vital records. And before 1 Jan 1871,
"Germany" itself was a concept, not a nation-state.

If you're inquiring about Danzig in the years before 1814, your query is
about Prussia for the years 1793-1806, a "free city-state" somewhat
under Napoleonic occupation for 1807-14, and incredibly complicated
before 1793. That was the year of the Second Partition of Poland.
Before then, Danzig still belonged to the Polish crown; but since it was
surrounded by Prussia and the Baltic, it became more or less a free city
in economic decline.

On the other hand, there weren't many Jews in Danzig itself back then.
Most Jews in the region lived in the suburban towns of Alt Schottland,
Hoppenbruch, Weinberg and Langfuhr, which had become Prussian in 1772
(1st Partition). Frederick the Great, generally no friend to the Jews,
encouraged and supported these communities as a sort of economic siege
of Danzig.

So it's most likely that, if your ancestor actually lived in the Danzig
area early on--and especially if he was born there--he came >from one of
the suburban communities, and was therefore >from Prussia.

And that leads to a fairly direct answer to your original question: no,
one wouldn't look in church records to find Prussian Jewish vital information.
Prussia didn't work that way--the churches had nothing to do with the
governmental administration of the Jewish communities in Prussia.

Instead, one would look in the annual censuses of Jews that the Prussian
government required--the so-called Judentabellen. Some of these may be
found in the Prussian State Archive in Berlin-Dahlem; others in Polish
archives. Some of these are accompanied by quarterly lists of vital
events. They're not easy to work with--take it >from one who's been
doing so lately--but they can take one back another generation or two.
Note also that surname-adoption did not take place until 1812-14, so
you'll be working with patronymics.

The only places in Prussia where one might look in church books would be
in the regions annexed in the 2nd and 3rd Partitions and later made part
of Napoleon's Grand Duchy of Warsaw. Any parts that were returned to
Prussia in 1815 belonged to Posen Province. And in some of those places
there are vital records for Jews that were kept by the local (usually
Catholic) churches. But that's only for the years 1808-1813 or so.

Good luck!

How to prove connection between likely relatives? #general

adkrinsky
 

I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how to prove or at least
lend support to a connection between likely relatives.

For me, it's a case of finding someone with a grandfather and
great-grandparents >from the same town as my grandfather and
great-grandparents and with the same surname, and not an overwhelmingly
common one (Krinsky >from Kolno). So, it seems likely we are related, that
our great-grandfathers were brothers or cousins, but neither of us knows
much about that generation.

So far, my approach has been to look for passenger records and
naturalization forms to try to find some hint or evidence of a connect,
a reference across the two families, but no success so far. Any advice,
any other sorts of records, perhaps >from Poland/Russia that might fill
in some of the missing knowledge?

Thank you!

Brick Wall Assistance - Seeking Mary GREENBERG #general

Eric Ellman <eellman@...>
 

I am looking to locate a missing great-grand aunt, Mary GREENBERG
(c. 1885-?), in the hope that I may find more clues about a little-known
branch in my tree. Mary was last seen on the 1920 U.S. Census for
Manhattan and disappeared >from my research at the age of 36. I would be
grateful for any leads that can be offered.

The GREENBERG family is >from Rzeszow, Galicia and made their way to New
York in the 1890s. Mary was last seen as a single woman, a governess, at
the Hebrew Orphanage Asylum (HOA) at 1560 Amsterdam Ave. (between
136th-138th) in New York.

Facts and near facts relating to life:
(1) I have a high degree of confidence >from family stories that Mary never
married and never had children;
(2) All of the GREENBERGs were in either Manhattan, the Bronx, or Brooklyn
through the 1950s so it is most unlikely that Mary would have left the city;
(3) Using Steven Morse for the 1925 NYS Census I looked for every
non-married, non-widowed Mary and "Mar" Greenberg (using the "close to"
and "starts with" options; and a five year window around 1885 for her
birth) and came up empty again, however, if the Mary I seek was a "head"
and had no other relative known to me living with her, I may have passed
her by;
(4) Using Steven Morse again through Ancestry on the 1930 and 1940 censuses
I looked for non-married, non-widowed Mary Greenbergs or derivites thereof
and again came up short.

Facts and unknowns relating to death:
(1) I searched the NY Times obits without a hit;
(2) Mary had two siblings, Lena (GREENBERG) ELLMAN and Regina (GREENBERG)
STOCK, but Mary is not buried with Lena in the Crowning Glory of Israel at
Montefiore, nor is she buried with her Regina at King Solomon Memorial in
Clifton, NJ.

I would be grateful for any leads that can be offered as I attempt to
locate a missing person.

ALHANATI Family of Larissa #general

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

I am interested in learning more about the well-known ALHANATI family
of Larissa. I am familiar with Edras Moissis' book on Larissa and in
fact have it in my collection and I am also familiar with Raphael
Frezis' book on the community in Volos. It appears that they also
intermarried with my family based on recent discoveries through the
SAMI (SHAMI, spelled Shin Alef Mem Yud in Hebrew) family.

Best Regards,

Michael Waas
