If you have ancestors from Markt Berolzheim, I have a photo of a WW veteran's memorial #germany

I was sent a photo of a memorial (it looks like a fancy headstone) to

be happy to send you the photo.

Re: another cemetery question- name before there was a "last name" #germany

Dear Lin:
No need to capitalize patronymics, if you ask me. Good point, though.

I'd be very surprised indeed if a gravestone with no surname had any
substantial amount of Latin lettering on it.

The Middle Franconia Judenmatrikeln were a list of the Jews who were
officially established in each town until 1861. Each town was allowed to
have only so many Jewish families, so when one head of household died
the privilege could be passed on to someone else: a son, the widow, or
some other person.

The lists for Middle Franconia exist and were filmed by LDS. About 10
years ago the Franken genealogy society and the Nuremberg archive
collaborated on a CD-ROM version, which has all the images plus an index
allowing you to find them. I have a copy. There are 5 HERZes: one in
Fuerth, one in Huettenheim and 3 in Markt Berolzheim.

Obviously this was before "last names" If I am very fortunate and his
stone is still standing and the lettering of the name is in an alphabet
Daniel can read, what might the name say? In the days before last names,
does anyone know what a grave would say for such a person.
I made a note (but am missing part of it) that someone told me that on
something called "Middle Franconia Judenmatrikel" that what may be my
family an Emanuel Joseph's father is listed as Joseph Emanuel HERZ. Now
my grandfather lists my ggg grandfather as Emanuel HERZ. (with the last
name) but he lists Emanuel's father as Josef or Joseph ben Benjamin.
Part of my note is missing as I did not notice that ancestry.com cut off
the rest of the "fact." So I don't have who told me about this Middle
Franconia Judenmatrikel and how I could see it.

Yosef David and Fanny LEIBOVICY family - Romania, 1920s - ViewMate photos #bessarabia

G Sles
 

Hello Bessarabia SIG Members,

We're seeking information about Fanny (nee GARTENLAUB) and Yosef David LEIBOVICY and
their six children. Their last known residence was Romania in the 1920s. Yosef David also
signed his name as Y.D. LEIBOVICY. One daughter was Surica. We have no other children's
names or any addresses for the family, as the photo postcards were sent in envelopes long gone.
 
A 1921 family photo taken in Piatra Neamt, Romania, is posted on Viewmate:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM22812
(Please ignore the responses >from 2012, which were prior to our verifying names and
facts mentioned in the updated 2014 posting.)
 
A 1928 wedding photo taken in Galati, Romania, of daughter Surica LEIBOVICY and her
husband David (surname unknown) is posted on Viewmate:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM22817

We have not found any record of the family on JewishGen or in Shoah databases, but
that doesn't mean they're not listed. Fanny's siblings' descendants in Israel and the US have
the same family photo as posted on ViewMate, but no one knows what became of Fanny,
Yosef David, Surica, David, and the rest of their families. It's possible the LEIBOVICYs changed
their surname and that Surica became Sarah.

Any advice or help will be appreciated.
This message will be posted to the Discussion group, ROM-SIG, Bessarabia SIG and others.

Can anyone of you suggest to me how I might be able to access particular

few Naples (Italy) to United States transatlantic sails just before the
coming of World War II in 1939?
MODERATOR NOTE: The Gold Form on the Steve Morse website is most helpful for

Barchfeld an der Werra (Wartburgkreis) Thueringen #germany

jplowens@...
 

My father's sister, Betty Loewenstein married Max WOLF >from Barchfeld.
I've been helping my WOLF cousins with their family history.

Recently, with the help of Rosanne Leeson and of Alfred Kuhen,
a distant relative of my < Barchfeld WOLF cousins, I've received a great
deal of information about the Jewish community in Barchfeld.

Barchfeld on the River Werra in Wartburgkreis is 137 km northeast of
Frankfurt a/M at 50:48 N 08:41 E. According to the JewishGen
Gazetteer, the town was in Hessen-Nassau, Preussen in 1900 and 1930.
Today it is in the German Land Thueringen.
The Jewish population was 237 in 1861 and 65 in 1932.

Alemannia Judaica (A.J) has collected considerable information about
Jewish life in Barchfeld. http://tinyurl.com/n8wk3wc
http://www.alemannia-judaica.de/barchfeld_synagoge.htm#Erinnerungsarbeit vor Ort

Resources cited in the A.J. bibliography include a locally published
history of the Jewish community. I use the web page translator
included in the Google Toolbar to read German language content at the
Alemannia Judaica website.

A news article quoted on the A.J. Barchfeld page describes the
September, 2013, installation of Stolpersteine there in which another
WOLF descendant, Danny Aharon >from Israel participated.

http://www.insuedthueringen.de/lokal/bad_salzungen/fwstzslzlokal/Das-Ende-einer-langen-Reise;art83434,2858381

When Alfred Kuhen in Palo Alto, California, found this article at
A.J., he contacted Mr. Aharon. Through Mr. Aharon and others, he began
an Email exchange with my WOLF cousins and also the Barchfeld
historian Klaus Schmidt.

In the 6 months since the article was published, Kuhen, Aharon and
Herr Schmidt have extracted and copied vital records for many WOLF
cousins and produced WOLF - Barchfeld family tree showing the
relationships between those cousins and my cousins. Their work was
aided by GerSIG and French SIG member Leeson and by research from
another WOLF - Barchfeld descendant, Martha Lev-Zion. Their common
ancestors were Loeb Anschel WOLF, Viehaendler, b. December 8, 1754
and his wife Judel Samuel.

JGS (NY) Meeting April 27 #general

Harriet Mayer
 

JGS (NY) Meeting Sunday, April 27, at 2 PM
at the Bialystoker Synagogue, 7-11 Willet St., New York

JGS members and guests will take a field trip to the Lower East Side for a
private lecture and tour of the historic Bialystoker Synagogue. Founded in
1878, the congregation moved in 1905 to its landmark building on Willet St.,
recently renamed Bialystoker Place.

The synagogue is housed in an 1826 late Federal style building, originally
the home of the Willet St. Methodist Episcopal Church. Among its noteworthy
features is a small break in the wall of the women's gallery that leads to
a ladder in an attic; legend has it that the building was a stop on the
Underground Railroad and that runaway slaves found sanctuary there.

Listed as a NYC landmark in 1966, it is one of only four early-19th century
fieldstone religious buildings surviving >from the late Federal period in
Lower Manhattan. During the Great Depression, a decision was made to beautify
the main sanctuary, to provide a sense of hope and inspiration to the community.

Our guide for this visit will be the synagogue's Rabbi Zvi Romm.
Note: The synagogue is not wheelchair-accessible.

After the synagogue visit, we will proceed to the neighboring Visitor Center
of the Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy where we can view photographs,
memorabilia and artifacts of Jewish immigrant life. Michael Pertain, JGS
Executive Council member and the sponsor of the Visitor Center, will
introduce us to the exhibits which illuminate the world of New York's
Jewish immigrants in the early 20th century.

See our website, www.jgsny.org , or the synagogue's website,
www.bialystoker.org , for more information and travel directions.

Free for member; guests $5.
