Descendants of Lajzer and Sluwa BICK (or BIK or BYK) #galicia

Reuven Liebes <reuvel@...>
 

I am searching for descendants of Lajzer and Sluwa BICK (or BIK or BYK).
I was born in Lwow, my all family perished in Holocaust. Searching JRI
and Gesher Galicia Data base, I revealed persons of my parents'
families.

My father Maurycy LIEBES, born in 1897 Lwow, was the son of Jozef
LIEBES (born 1856) and Roza Rajzel BICK (or BIK or BYK), Lajzer and
Sluwa's daughter. Jozef and Roza also had a daughter Zuzana (1887)
and a son Bernard (1891). I remembered that my father had told me
about his mother's family who had emigrated to USA probably in
beginning XX century.

Jewish History of Arizona in Moment Magazine (on line) #usa

JewishGen German Research Division Coordinator
 

from Jan Meisels Allen, IAJGS Public Records Access Monitoring Committee
Moment Magazine has an article on the Jewish history of Arizona
focusing on Phoenix and Tucson at:
http://www.momentmag.com/jewish-routes-arizona/

The article talks of early Jewish pioneers, cowboys, entertainers,
lawmen and ranchers. Jewish women were in short supply- making the
young Jewish men travel to New York, California or Tennessee to meet
their brides.

The first Arizona synagogue-Temple Emanu-El -- was in Tucson and
opened in 1910-- today Tucson has over a dozen synagogues and greater
Phoenix over 40. The article talks of the first Jewish mayors in
several towns other than Phoenix and Tucson. Some may remember that
Josephine Sarah Marcus >from San Francisco met and fell in love with
Wyatt Earp in Tombstone. Tombstone has an historic Jewish Cemetery and
monument on Boothill to honor the Jewish pioneers. The Jewish History
Museum in Tucson also has a Holocaust History Center
(http://www.jewishhistorymuseum.org/holocaust-history-center).

Changes to format of individual messages #usa

In the last couple of months, JewishGen has had to contend with new
policies ("DMARC") >from several e-mail providers that have affected
all Internet e-mail lists. For a couple of weeks many posts failed to
reach about half of our subscribers to individual messages ("Mail"
mode). Digest subscribers were not affected. We were able to change
our settings so all our subscribers are now receiving posts, but it
became difficult to respond directly to the sender of the post.

We have now changed the settings for Mail mode to fix this problem.
If you receive individual posts, you will notice two changes:

1. The sender's e-mail address will appear as part of the "From" line
in the post.

2. If you "Reply" to a post (but not to a digest), the reply will go
to the sender.

As a reminder, the mailing lists are intended for posts of general
interest. Personal responses to and questions about a post should be
directed to the sender of the post. The lists are not appropriate
places to conduct personal correspondence.

My ViewMate file # 33898 - photo #germany

Lin <lin2@...>
 

My viewmate file, a photo taken in Germany approx. 1891 is at this url:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM33898

I have learned a little more about the photo since I posted it. It is
believed to be my grandmother's eldest 4 sisters. For anyone who knows a
lot about clothing of that period, styles, hairstyles, anything at all
about interpreting photos, I'd love to hear >from you. The family lived
in Klein Reken, Germany.

from looking at the photo I think based on their order of birth, I
have guessed who is who. If you think by looking at it you disagree with
who is oldest, etc. let me know.
top left I think is Bertha, the eldest, born 1879, top right I think is
Mahle (third >from the eldest) born 1882,
bottom left, I think is the youngest of the four, Lena, born 1886, and
bottom right, I think is the second eldest, Sophia, born 1860.

Thank you so much, Lin Herz Palm Bay, Florida

Rosenthal in Kovna #lithuania

water wind & stars <shiralunacy@...>
 

The following two YIVO links elaborate on Lynn Saul's helpful reply to
Judith Larsen, who is new to the list. Lynn goes to the heart of the
matter in giving historical background: "Suwalki Gubernia was a region
populated by Litvaks--"Lithuanian Jews." Lithuania as a country was not
recognized during most of the 18th and 19th centuries. Poland and Russia
controlled the area..."

The terms "Lithuania" and Litvak" may lead to befuddlement if considered
separately >from the history that is essential to their definition with
respect to Jewish genealogy.

1) WHERE IS LITHUANIA?

Take a look at this chronological set of maps in YIVO's digital history
of Jewish Life in Poland: http://polishjews.yivoarchives.org/maps

You'll immediately see how many ways this question might be answered
depending
on the period that you are researching.


2) WHAT IS A LITVAK?

YIVO's answer (caps mine): Yiddish term for a Jew of HISTORICAL, or
"GREATER," Lithuania. http://www.yivoencyclopedia.org/article.aspx/Litvak

All the material that follows is >from this article, with spacing added for
clarity.

The Litvaks' territory of origin is significantly larger than the borders
of both the independent Lithuanian Republic of the interwar period
(1918-1940)--which did not include the center of Litvak culture, Vilna
(Vilnius)--and the contemporary state of Lithuania.

from a Jewish historical and cultural perspective, Lite (Yiddish for
Lithuania; Heb., Lita) includes large swaths of

northeastern POLAND (notably the Bialystok and Suwalki regions);

northern and western BELARUS (notably the Grodno [Hrodna], Minsk, Slutsk,
Pinsk, Brisk [Brest Litovsk], Shklov, Mogilev [Mohilev], Gomel [Homel'],
and Vitebsk [Vitsyebsk] regions);

southern LATVIA (notably the Dvinsk [Daugavpils] region);

northeastern PRUSSIA (notably the region of the Baltic port city Memel
[Klaipeda]).

This expansive definition of Lithuania in Jewish historiography and
culture corresponds roughly to the large territory under the jurisdiction
of the Lithuanian Jewish Council (Va'ad Medinot Lita), which governed
Lithuanian Jewish communal affairs fro 1623 to 1764.

I have heard >from Yefim that there are tombstones in the Kiliya cemetery waiting to be

Yefim already has someone willing to do the photographing if we raise the money. I am
more than willing to contribute and to urge others to contribute, but I do not feel able
to manage the project.

If you are willing, please contact Yefim for details and let me know of your decision.

Re: Berlin death records #general

If he was buried in Berlin, as you suspect, then he was probably buried
at Weissensee cemetery, which opened in 1880.

The Jewish Community of Berlin has extensive records of the burials
there. Try contacting http://www.jewish-cemetery-weissensee.org/ .

Once you have the date and place of death you can order a copy of the
death register entry >from the appropriate registry office (Standesamt).

Johanna Becker wants to find the death certificate of Bessie Cooperman,
who lived in Brooklyn, and thinks that she has located her in Montefiore
Cemetery in Queens.  She checked several sources, including the Municipal
Archives. 

But what about calling the cemetery?  Montefiore is still an active
cemetery with an office on the grounds.
