Re: Fish suppers #general

Fish in England was cheap food, chicken was more expensive now it is the other
way around.

The Sephardic Jews would eat cold fried fish as a Shabbat meal which the
Ashkenazim adopted. I do not think the Catholic tradition of eating fish on a
Friday had any thing to do with Eastern European Jews.

Polish Jews and other Jews >from Eastern and Central Europe specialised in
Gefilte Fish using slight variations on the recipe depending on where they came
from. This dish was usually made >from fresh water fish which was chopped or
minced and used to stuff the skin of a carp. Once settled in Britain they also
began to fry minced fish balls. Today we mainly use sea fish.

For some Jews fish solves the problem with Kashrut (keeping kosher) by just
having one set of cutlery & dishes and being able to have milk such as in tea
and coffee straight after a meal.

COHEN-MINEKEDOM who died in 1689 (Amsterdam). His wife is Breinele (died 1687).
You are mistaken, the page says Minekedam. He was burried 29 Dec 1689, it says.

As was usual in Europe, common names like Cohen were often appended with the

Quite possible dat Maritgen had the Jewish name Breinele, like Barend/Barent
had the Jewish name Berman.

Remember that Jews had no official familynames overhere till 1811/1812 under
Napoleon, so these were either patronyms [Maritgen [bat] Jacob the Levite
and Berman [bar or ha-] Cohen] or [locative, job, colour, foreign, kinui,

Re: Fish suppers #general

Further to Alexander's email about the Roman Catholic tradition of eating
fish on Fridays, it's also helpful to remember that for many years Jews
shared London's East End with members of many nationalities, including the
Irish, who also were predominantly RC. Indeed, the divine Claudia Rodin
attributes the invention of fish and chips to the combination of the Jewish
tradition of frying fish in batter and the Irish heavy consumption of potatoes.

New von Schlieben Maps: Przemysl, Rzeszow, Sanok, Tarnow, Bochnia, Wadowice, Nowy Sacz, Jaslo circles added to GG Map Room #ukraine

Pamela Weisberger
 

There are two new von Schlieben maps just uploaded to the Gesher
Galicia Cadastral Map Room.

These lithographed black and white maps with dashed kreis
(administrative circle) boundaries are >from an atlas of Europe
published by Goschen of Leipzig about 1828 and lithographed by Wilhelm
Ernst August von Schlieben (1781~1839). The paper maps detail all
major and many minor towns (mostly with Polish spelling), key roads,
rivers and lakes, kreis boundaries, and a scale bar in miles. Gesher
Galicia currently has four of the five maps in the series. These maps
are an excellent resource for discovering tiny villages adjacent to
larger shtetls or towns.

New additions:

The Five Galician Kreise map covers five adjacent "circles" of
Galicia, numbered here with head cities of 6: Tarnow (Tarnau, Tarnow),
including Ropczyce; 7: Bochnia, including Wojnicz and Wieliczka; 8:
Wadowice (Wladowice), including Zywiec and Oswiecim; 9: Nowy Sacz
(Sandecz), including Nowy Targ; 10: Jaslo (Jaslo), including Biecz and
Ko³aczyce.

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-kreis-1828-4/

The next new map covers three (numbered) "circles" - 4: Przemysl,
including Jaroslaw and Mosciska; 5: Rzeszow, including Lancut and
Lezajsk; 11: Sanok, including Dobromil and Rymanow.

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-kreis-1828-3/

These maps join the other von Schlieben maps already on our site:

Kreise 1, 2, 3 - 1: Lemberg (Lwow, Lviv, Lvov); 2: Zloczow
(Zolochiv), including Brody and Busk; 3: Zolkiew (Zhovkva, Zholkva),
including Belz and Rawa Ruska.

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-kreis-1828-1/

Kreise 12, 13, 17 - 12: Sambor (Sambir), including Drohobycz; 13:
Stryj (Stryi, Stry), including Kalush and Bukachivtsi; 17: Stanislawow
(Ivano-Frankivsk, Stanyslaviv, Stanislau), including Monastyryska.

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/galicia/galicia-kreis-1828-2/

Thanks to Jay Osborn for the postings and Alex Feller who researched
and acquired the maps at public auction. (We hope to complete the set
with the missing fifth one soon.)

Recognize them? Trying to identify and/or locate these people or descendants #unitedkingdom

Madeleine Isenberg
 

This is my first contact with your SIG,

This is a photo I believe to be around 1947, when I was the
"bridesmaid" in the photo. The couple, to the best of my knowledge,
is a young (Polish? and) Jewish woman who was orphaned during WW II.
My late mother would tell me that such orphans could sometimes be
sponsored to come to England to work as domestics, probably after WW
II.

Accordingly, her parents (my grandparents, Annie and Israel SACKS)
sponsored her. I believe her name was Rosie Pearl, although I don't
know the correct spelling of that family name. She married "Jack" who
was a butcher at SCHLAGMAN's the Butcher's on Oldhill Street, near
Stamford Hill in London, UK. Not sure if he was actually part of the
Schlagman family. If they are still alive, they may be in their
eighties.

As a child I was always curious about Jack having an indentation at
the top of his forehead, as if a bullet might have once gotten lodged
there. That is a distinctive identifying mark!

I have tried unsuccessfully to see if the archives of the Jewish
Chronicle might help, but not with the information I have provided
here.

I would love to identify these people and/or find out what happened to
them since my family immigrated to the USA in 1951.

I hope someone will be able to recognize them and provide information.
I have posted the photo on Viewmate as

Amkha was a cryptonym word that have been used to identify a Jew.
