Seeking Information on Rabbi Amram b. Yitzchak Yakov BLUM #romania

Aaron Slotnik
 

Hello,

In the course of researching my BLUM family >from Gebe, Hungary (present day
Nyirkata), I'm seeking to clarify the locations associated with Rabbi
Amram b. Yitzchak Yakov BLUM (1834 - 1907), his siblings and ancestors.
I'm hoping that some of the readers of this posting to Rav-SIG, H-SIG,
Rom-SIG and JewishGen (please forgive the cross-posting) will be able to
assist.


The published sources that I've been able to consult--Magyar Zsido Lexicon,
as well as various online family trees--have Rabbi Amram's place of birth
as Samson, Hungary (present day Hajdusamson). His father Yitzchak Yakov
is also referred to as the 'Shamshon Rav' and the Pinkas Hakehillot entry
for Hajdusamson (http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/pinkas_hungary/hun270.html)
states that he was a Rabbi there but doesn't provide specifics. The Zsido
Mult website:
http://hajdu.zsidomult.hu/index.php/elveszett-koezoessegek/koezponti-jaras/hajdusamson
[Moderator Note - This is in Hungarian] Tiny URL: <http://tinyurl.com/jl4fkjh>
states that he served there until his death in 1851, but since I don't know
Hungarian it's unclear to me when he started; however, the information at this
website (http://www.virtualjudaica.com/Item/19407/Responsa_Maharaf) about Rabbi
Aharon FRIED states that he served as the rabbi of Hajdusamson >from 1844-1860.
There is a Karoly Fried listed in Samson in the 1848 Census, but no details fit
other than his birth year.


The research that I've been able to conduct in the primary sources indexed
in the JewishGen Hungary database state that Rabbi Amram (secular name Abraham),
his brother Rabbi Moshe (Moricz) and sister Hava (Eva) were all born in
Nagykaroly (present day Carei, Romania)--see the 1869 Hungarian Census entry
for Mad, Hungary. Additionally, the Encyclopedia Judaica entry for Amram
states that "He studied under his father, who was head of the bet din in
Nagykaroly, and later in the seminaries of Nagykaroly [under Rabbi Meir Perles],
and of Abraham Samuel Benjamin Sofer, rabbi of Pressburg."


I'm new to rabbinic genealogy, but I'm surprised that there isn't more
information readily available about Amram's father if he indeed was ABD of
Nagykaroly which was an important town at that time and one of the oldest
Jewish communities in Hungary / Transylvania. In addition to the 1869 Census
entry, I believe I can substantiate that the family was in Nagykaroly starting
in at least the 1820s as I found an entry for Yitzchak Yakov's father Levi BLUM
in the 1828 Hungarian Property Tax Census.


According to Yitzchak Yakov's family tree on Geni, his first marriage was to
a STERNBERG who I believe was Rabbi Bernard (Dov Ber) STERNBERG's daughter and
whose other daughter married Rabbi Shimon SOFER (son of Chatam Sofer). His
second marriage was to Miriam ROSENBAUM, daughter of Rabbi Amram Chassida
ROSENBAUM. My limited understanding of rabbinical marriages leads me to
believe that Yitzchak Yakov must have been a fairly well-known and respected
rabbi in his time to have merited matches with other prominent families, and
would align with him being ABD Nagykaroly.


Other than the Encyclopedia Judaica entry though, I can find no other mention
of Yitzchak Yakov as a rabbi in Nagykaroly. According to the timeline I've
been able to piece together >from various sources, Rabbi Moshe Aryeh b. Mayer
Yehuda OSTREICHER served >from 1774 to his death in 1820, followed by Rabbi
Isaac b. Asher Uri Lippmann FRANKEL >from 1820 to his death in 1834, followed
by Rabbi Meir b. Isaac Moses PERLES >from 1834 to his death in 1893. However,
the book "Wine and Thorns in the Tokay Valley..." states that Rabbi FRANKEL
died on October 10, 1825 which I would tend to believe since it appears to be
well-sourced. That discrepancy could align with Rabbi BLUM serving at that time,
or perhaps others were considered the chief rabbi while he was ABD?


So, the association with Nagykaroly seems to be well established. What I'm
trying to clarify is the association with Hajdusamson, particularly in the
late 1700s and early 1800s. The later association (i.e. after 1850) seems to
be more clear, either with Yitzchak Yakov dying there and/or Amram serving there
in his early career. Amram's son-in-law Rabbi Yosef Zvi SOFER served there as
did his son-in-law Rabbi Gavriel (Gabor) ILLIOVICS.


The key seems to be finding more information about Yitzhak Yakov and his
father Levi / Lebi. I wonder whether his father was a rabbi, or if not
clearly was wealthy enough to have owned property in Nagykaroly. I'm hoping
that some subscribers will have access to other sources (e.g. Hakhme Hungaryah
and Hakhme Transilvanyah by Yitshak Yosef Kohen, Toledot Geonei Hagar and
Shem ha-Gedolim me-Erets Hagar by Schwartz, or Rabbi Blum's own works) that
may have more information on them.


I speculate, but hope to more definitively establish, that Yitzchak Yakov
was born in Hajdusamson and possibly his father Levi as well. Unfortunately,
I've been unable to locate them in the 1848 Hungarian Jewish Census records
that have been indexed in the JewishGen Hungary database which could have
provided the birthplace. Although there are no fixed surnames, there are
likely candidates in the early 1770 census indexes due to the given names
and frequency of those names in later BLUM family records.


My apologies for the long note, but I tried to make it as succinct as
possible while including all the information I've found.

There were no naturalization/immigration papers.
His marriage and death certificate MAY show his place of origin but it is
not a given they are accurate. Before ca 1900 a narrative form was used
for vital records (no fix entries) so sometimes great information may be
found.

Hello Genners,

I am wondering where I might find certain information pertaining to
my great grandfather and his father. They immigrated to Romania
sometime in the 1850's (according to a cousin.) My grandmother's
birth certificate, >from Braila, says her father was >from the
"Austro-Hungarian" area. The surname appears to be unique. One
aunt had told me that my grandfather spelled his name differently
from everyone else.

So my question is, did Romanians have naturalization papers,
immigration papers, etc. Would my grandfathers' death certificate
(d. 1921) or marriage record have his exact place of birth and original
surname?=20

Are here any documents in Romania that would have this kind of
information?

I'd appreciate any information or direction in where to research.

One way to find out more about finding records for female ancestors, both
here in the US and Europe, will be to watch the Gala Banquet at next month's
IAJGS Conference on Jewish Genealogy in Seattle, August 7-12. If you are
unable to be there, you can still stream the talk >from "Legal Genealogist",
Judy Russell, JD, CG, CGL, via LIVE!, the real time streaming service of the
Conference. Judy's talk is "Don't Forget the Ladies", and deals with finding
19th century records of women.

In order to sign up for LIVE!, which will bring you about 60 presentations
from the Conference, including the Keynote Address by Dr. Devin Naar, head
of Sephardic Studies at the University of Washington and many others, go to
the Conference website (http://www.iajgs2016.org) and click LIVE! and
Recordings. All talks streaming on LIVE! will be available on demand for 90
days after the Conference. If you purchase LIVE! before July 24, you can
still get it at the bargain price of $129, if you are attending the
Conference. LIVE! for non-conference attendees is $179. If we can't see
you in Seattle, we hope you will enjoy and learn >from LIVE!

"Jews of Belarus" project at geni.com #belarus

Eric Mercer <mercer@...>
 

The "Jews of Belarus" umbrella project page at Geni.com was recently
expanded and organized so that it groups the individual town projects
according to the same regions as the JewishGen databases for Belarus.
You can find it here: https://www.geni.com/projects/Jews-of-Belarus/18585

The umbrella project has links to individual town projects, each of
which has its own discussion forum that can be viewed by the public
without any sign-in (so it's indexed by major search engines). They can
be participated in through a free Geni account. This is one of several
ways one might choose to support group discussion for a surname project,
location-based project, or combination name & location project -- Yahoo
or Google groups are others, for example.

I'm not associated in any way with geni.com other than as a customer who
has ancestors >from Belarus. The projects are volunteer supported.

Still time to register for the IAJGS conference Aug 7-12 #austria-czech

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

The annual IAJGS conference has become more of than just your run of the
mill conference. There are no longer merely lectures and workshops.
There are:
- Up to seven concurrent lectures and workshops during each time period
- A track on "Genealogy for Jewish Educators"
- Computer Workshops
- Special Interest Group Luncheons
- Gala Banquet
- Vendor exhibits
- The play, >from Door to Door, by the Seattle Jewish Theater Company.
- Film Festival
- Pre- and post-conference cruises
- Tours during the conference

Events stretch >from 7:30am to at least 10:00pm. There is a morning
minyan (religious service) at 7:10. It is truly an international
conference because there will be attendees >from more than 20 countries.
In addition, it is becoming more common for lecturers to be >from outside
the U.S.

Finally, if you cannot attend, but wish you could, there is LIVE!! This
allows the subscriber to watch some of the best programs on his/her
computer, tablet, or smartphone. LIVE! is, as the name suggests, live

end of the conference, "on-demand".

If you cannot make this year's conference, plan to attend the one next
year which will be in Orlando, Florida, July 23 - 28, 2017. It can
include pre- or post-conference visits to Disneyworld, which is just a
few miles away.

The conference website is at http://www.iajgs2016.org. Registration is
being accepted on-line until July 24. After July 24, if you'd like to
attend, you can register at the door.

See you in Seattle!

or knowing any details about Peter Reinitz, his house transaction and his
relations with the Wolf family (which also shows up a lot in my research)

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Still time to register for the IAJGS conference Aug 7-12 #austria-czech

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

The annual IAJGS conference has become more of than just your run of the
mill conference. There are no longer merely lectures and workshops.
There are:
- Up to seven concurrent lectures and workshops during each time period
- A track on "Genealogy for Jewish Educators"
- Computer Workshops
- Special Interest Group Luncheons
- Gala Banquet
- Vendor exhibits
- The play, >from Door to Door, by the Seattle Jewish Theater Company.
- Film Festival
- Pre- and post-conference cruises
- Tours during the conference

Events stretch >from 7:30am to at least 10:00pm. There is a morning
minyan (religious service) at 7:10. It is truly an international
conference because there will be attendees >from more than 20 countries.
In addition, it is becoming more common for lecturers to be >from outside
the U.S.

Finally, if you cannot attend, but wish you could, there is LIVE!! This
allows the subscriber to watch some of the best programs on his/her
computer, tablet, or smartphone. LIVE! is, as the name suggests, live
streaming, but it is also available to subscribers for 90 days after the
end of the conference, "on-demand".

If you cannot make this year's conference, plan to attend the one next
year which will be in Orlando, Florida, July 23 - 28, 2017. It can
include pre- or post-conference visits to Disneyworld, which is just a
few miles away.

The conference website is at http://www.iajgs2016.org. Registration is
being accepted on-line until July 24. After July 24, if you'd like to
attend, you can register at the door.

See you in Seattle!

Dear Group,

I have posted two documents found in the "Book of Homes" >from Hranice in
Moravia (available on Familysearch.org), which I think show Peter Reinitz
my GGGGF owning or selling a house. I would appreciate having a translation
or knowing any details about Peter Reinitz, his house transaction and his
relations with the Wolf family (which also shows up a lot in my research)

Dear Genners,

Researching in the Index of Jewish records of Burgenland, Austria, between
1832 and 1895 in GenTeam, I came across EDEL Regina a widow who died in
Eisenstadt in December 24th 1860 at the age of 83.
My GGGGM was regina EDEL who married my GGGGF Peter Jozsef Reinitz. They
lived in Nagykanizsa but in 1822 Regina lived in Kismarton/Eisestadt and
afterwards in Vienna.

I could not find records of the residents of Kismarton in 1822. Can anyone
help?

Thank you,
