Krakow - Pinkas "Hevra Kadisha" #rabbinic

Yaron Pedhazur
 

Dear fellow researchers,

I am looking for information on the pinkas of the "hevra kadisha" of
Krakow.

This "pinkas" was for centuries a main genealogical source for
Krakow's genealogists and historians, e.g. Balaban, Wetstein,
Friedberg, Dembitzer.

In an appendix to his book on the Jewish community of Krakow, Meir
Balaban mentions that the pinkas was kept in a good shape, and was
handled by the EICHHORN family, probably until WWII.

I would appreciate any info on this pinkas -- has it survived the war,
and if so, where is it located now ? are there any copies or notes
made except of the published writings of the authors mentioned
above ? etc.

Best regards,

Yaron Pedhazur

My results show that I am 40% Ashkenazi Jewish which is on my unknown
father's side. Does anyone match with me on Gedmatch?

I have verified that my family name of ALTURA (with several variations such
as Altarass) originated in Spain, in a way confirming family legend. I have
traced my family via Vienna, Austria, to Brody, Galicia to around 1850. I
don't know where to go >from here. There are ALTURAs all over the world -
especially in Spanish speaking countries, >from Brazil to the Philippines. I
would like some advice as to how to begin searching in Spain. I have
utilized Ancestry.com and Jewishgen.org databases to no avail. Thank you.

I have posted 2 pages (front and back) of a letter that my uncle Heinz Mordechai

earlier with Youth Aliya >from Austria. My father was in Lausanne, finishing his medical

I would appreciate a translation of both pages.
