Judische presse #germany

My grandfather rabbi Yeshya BAYERN was the rabbi in Sarospatak Hungary
till his passing Dec. 6 1885, lately I have come across an article
about him in Hebrew which states that the information of the funeral
was taken >from the newsletter 'die Judische presse' that was published
that time in berlin, I on my side contacted the author of the article,
which didn't know the exact issue he took the information.

So my question to you SIG'ers is since I don't know germen, would
anybody be able to look thru the issue's of the month of his passing
[Dec. 1885] to tell me where the article about my grandfathers funeral
is, if you are ready to help me please send a request 'die Judische
presse' to my email @ nissenweisz@gmail.com, and I will reply with the
Judische presse of that era.

Thanks in advance, Nissen Weisz Monsey NY

(Europe) European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative Website #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative (ESIF) launched a new website,
http://www.esjf-cemeteries.org/, where one can find a list of their
activities in restoring Jewish cemeteries predominately in Eastern and
Central Europe. The restoration is mainly of cemetery gates. It is not
within their project to replace or repair gravestones. The ESIF was set up
in 2015 as a German-based non-profit organization with a pilot grant of 1
million Euros >from the German government.

Pittsburgh Jewish Newspaper Project #general

Becker, Risa (GfK) <Risa.Becker@...>
 

I came across this (free!) resource recently and found it very useful.
The Pittsburgh Jewish Newspaper Project is composed of archived images
of the Jewish Criterion (1895-1962), the American Jewish Outlook
(1934-1962), the Jewish Chronicle (1962-2010), and the Y-JCC series (1926-1975).
These are papers I don't think you'll find in the big digitized newspaper
sites. The papers have information >from many towns in western PA, not
just Pittsburgh.

http://digitalcollections.library.cmu.edu/portal/collections/pjn/index.jsp

Genners, I imagine there must be all sorts of Jewish papers online
in different locations and different sites. Does anyone know of a
comprehensive list of these sources?

Thx! Risa

Have you tried examining the Kagan list carefully? Also, when checking the
Kagan list, you should be looking for variants or Hebrew equivalents of "Hyman".

The name "cohen" in Russian is Kagan. Then "h" equivalent in Russian
is a "g". For example, the town of "Mohilev" in Russianis "Mogilev"

In Russian, Kagan and Cohen are spelled the same (they don't have
separate letters for G and H). The only reason you didn't find the
name "Cohen" is because whomever did the English transliteration
choose to transliterate the Russian as Kagan. But the name in Russian
would have been the same as what it would have been if the person's
name had originally been Cohen.

In my family, Berl/Berko (aka Dov
Behr) Klionsky married Bessie/Pesche Cohen
in NYC in the 1890s. Her father was Hyman Joseph Cohen
>from Borisov. I tried
to search for him - or anyone identifiable as his relative -
on the 1874 Borisov
Revision List, but found nothing. No Cohens at all (of
any spelling).

The 1874 Borisov Revision List has about 4500 entries.
My understanding is that
such lists are supposed to record all Jews subject to a
certain type of poll tax;
certain professionals and educated people (and perhaps rich
people as well) are
not covered by the List, but most families who lived there
at the time should
have at least one family member included.

(or any reasonable spelling variations thereof).

(There ARE entries for names such as Kagan, Kaplan and
Levine which are highly
indicative of such religious standing.)

Does anyone know if use of Cohen or Levy as a surname was
prohibited?
Or, if people with those names were categorically excluded
>from the lists?
Or, if these names were, for some reason, just not used in
the Borisov region?
Or, any other insights as to why such common Jewish names
are not represented on a list with about 4500 entries?

Help would really be appreciated.

Number of years of present marriage on 1910 US Census #general

Deborah Barr
 

My relative was widowed sometime between 1906 and 1908. Her 1910 census
record has 11 for the Number of years of present marriage.

How should I interpret this - that she was married 11 years when her
husband died, or that she was married in 1899?
