I am trying to reestablish e-mail connections with Roberto PINCUS the president
of the Chevra Kadisha of the German Jewish Synagogue of Santiago, Chile.

The last correspondence I had with him was around April of this year.

I believe that, at that time, someone >from this group also contacted him
about his acting as a contact between this group and the Jewish community

New Book on French Jewish Immigration to Louisiana #france

siess@...
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

I would like to announce
the publication of my latest book
on Louisiana Jewish genealogy entitled
LOUISIANA'S JEWISH IMMIGRANTS FROM
THE BAS-RHIN, ALSACE, FRANCE,
(Janaway Publishing Inc, Santa Maria, CA).

I have written about the French Jewish immigrants >from the Bas-Rhin who
settled in forty-nine of the sixty-four Louisiana parishes over the course
of the last two centuries. =A0I =A0begin by explaining the special pitfalls of
Jewish genealogical research, then goes on to show how to use both French
and English on-line records in order to unlock the secrets of long-departed
ancestors. Included are four case studies as examples of how to tackle
certain genealogical brick walls. The remainder of the book is devoted to
the study of 638 Jewish immigrants who left >from places in the Bas-Rhin,
Alsace, such as Strasbourg, Brumath, Lauterbourg, Haguenau, Hoenheim,
Harskirchen, Obernai, Rothbach, Ingwiller, Schirrhoffen, Schliethal,
Lembach, Herrlisheim, =A0and Oberlauterbach, to name just a few. Some unlucky
souls never even completed the journey. They may have died of disease in
European ports while awaiting passage, or perished at sea during the arduous
voyage. Those fortunate enough to arrive did not always settle in New
Orleans. A large number of them journeyed still farther inland to big towns
such as Shreveport, Baton Rouge, Alexandria, Opelousas, Donaldsonville or
smaller villages like Chackbay, Waterloo, Livonia, Mansura, Hohen Solms,
Bunkie, Berwick, Big Cane, Marksville, Morgan City, Bayou Goula, or
Pointe-=E0-la-H=E2che. Still others were employed as store keepers on
plantations such as Azima, Belmont, Cinclare, Cora, Cote Blanche, Cypress
Hall, Live Oak, and Tezcuco. While many prospered in Louisiana, others
suffered unspeakable tragedies in their adopted homeland. Some were
murdered. Others ended their own lives. More than 5% of these men and women
succumbed to cholera, typhoid, tuberculosis, or yellow fever, often at a
young age, and within a few years of their arrival. While just over 10% of
these immigrants never married, many wed other Alsatian immigrants or native
Louisianans, and a large number took as their spouses >from immigrants the
Rhinephalz =A0region of Germany. Whatever their story, the reader will not
=A0help but be caught up in the drama of the existence of these =
immigrants who
risked everything to start anew in Louisiana.
The book is available through
Amazon.com, or the publisher Janaway Publishing, Inc.


If you are in the New Orleans area, I will be signing my
book on October 28, 2014 at 6:00 P.M. at Octavia Books located at
513 Octavia Street corner of Laurel.

On the following evening, Wednesday,
October 29, 2014, I will be participating in=A0 a panel discussion of Frenchu
Jewish immigration to the Gulf South with Dr. Michael Cohen, Asst. professor
of Jewish studies at Tulane University, and Dr. Anny Bloch-Raymond, author
of the newly published
from THE BANKS OF THE RHINE TO THE BANKS OF THE MISSISSIPPI,

their homes. The panel discussion will =A0begin at 7:00 PM on the Tulane
University Campus, at=A0 the Lavin Bernick Center for University Life,

I'm not sure which names you might be referring to, but 2 fairly common Hebrew
names that begin with an "s", might be Simha and Srul (a variant on Yisrael).
Because they are derived >from Hebrew, I believe they are both (properly)
written with a sin (although I'm no expert on Yiddish spellings).

And, of course, there are plenty of other Hebrew names that start with a shin.
(Shimon, Shmuel, Shlomo, Shaul, Shimshon, etc. just offhand.)

Both my father and my brother have English names that begin with the letter
S but not the same name. There's a family story that when they went to give
my brother his Hebrew name it could not be the same as his father's but there
are only two Hebrew names that begin with "S."

Is that true? I am pretty sure I can think of more than two they could use
but name I am wrong on the Hebrew names.

KLIGER (KLAGER or KLEEGER) immigrants from Rivne, Russia #general

Bonnie Keyser <bonkey3@...>
 

I am searching for information about the following three people who were the
sons and daughter of Bessie (1868-1947) and Benjamin KLIGER (1860-1923.

Etka (family lore refers to her as Ida) was born circa 1888 and arrived in
Philadelphia on 22 March 1906 >from Rivne (Rowna or Rouna) Russia. I assume that
she married but do not know to whom or where she lived.

Two other children of Benjamin and Bessie immigrated through Baltimore in June,
1906. The manifest lists them as Idel (17 years old, a machinist) and his
brother Schiel (11 years old). Manifest lists them as going to their father
Benjamin in Philadelphia.

Other offspring of Benjamin and Bessie have been documented and recorded. All
census, military and city directories have been checked at Ancestry and Family
Search.

If these names sound familiar, please contact me. I have hit a genealogical
brick wall.
