Lists of Rabbis? #general

Judith Singer
 

Is anyone aware of any reference works where I could find the names of
rabbis for various towns in Austria-Hungary? Specifically, I am
interested in late 18th-century and 19th century rabbis in the towns
of Mosciska, Przemysl, and Jaworow, located in Galicia, Austro-Hungarian
Empire, before World War II.

Thank you -

I've posted a picture on Viewmate --

of an apron purchased in Instanbul, Turkey, ca. 1905, for a young
teen-age girl. Around the perimeter of the garment there appears to be
some script -- old Turkish, Arabic, or possible just some decorative
embellishments. Need some help in identifying the type/occasion of
garment and the possible script/translation around its edges.

Please reply on Viewmate.

Thank you.

Vysotsky in Bobruisk #belarus

Linda Kelley
 

Our family genealogists believe that our Na'az Zvie/Girsh Berezkin, b.
about 1799, son of Noson, had a first wife who was related to Kalman
Wolf Wissotzky, the tea dealer. Girsh's sons were in the tea business,
and an article in an Israeli magazine mentions a marriage to a Mr.
Bereskin. The article implied that one of Kalman's daughters married a
Mr. Bereskin, but that doesn't fit with my Girsh and Freyda. Still,
it's a possible clue that someone in Kalman's family married a
Bereskin.

The 1858 Revision List has Girsh married to Freyda, daughter of Dovid.
Freyda was born between 1800-9 and probably died before 1862. Her
father, Dovid, was probably born before about 1780-89.

Kalman Wolf Wissotzky lived 1824-1904. One of his sons was named David
1861-1930.
GENI says Kalman's father was Yaakov, son of Rephoel, son of Aryeh.

Girsh and Freyda had at least the following children:
Nisan or Nathan Bereskin 1820
Yudka Berezkin 1834
Sarah or Khaya Sora Berezkin 1840
Itka Berezkin 1841
Aaron Bereskin 1848

Girsh's second wife was Fannie Chen. They had Meyer in 1862 and Adolf in
1866.

It's possible the Berezkins lived in Chernigov area of Ukraine before
they came to Bobruisk. There were Visotskys in Bobruisk in 1858:

VYSOTSKY Vulf, son of Mendel, age 30
VYSOTSKY Meylakh Mendel brother, possibly 21 in 1858
recruited in 1854
VYSOTSKY Tema, daughter of Evsey wife of Vulf, age 30

So Vulf was probably born about 1828, and Mendel was probably born before
1808.
Kalman, the tea dealer, was living in Moscow in 1858.

Does anyone have Dovid Vysotsky and his daughter, Freyda Vysotsky Berezkin?

Thank you very much!

Deaths at Grosse Isle (Ile) Quebec #general

benzimida2000 <benzimida2000@...>
 

Dear JGenners,

I am wondering if anyone has succeeded in obtaining death certificates for
people who died while in quarantine in Grosse Isle, Quebec.

Here is link to a website with some information but records for deaths are
only mentioned as in death registers.

http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/immigration/immigration-records/immigrants-grosse-ile-1832-1937/Pages/immigrants-grosse-ile.aspx#e
[MOD. NOTE: shortened URL - http://goo.gl/k6zUIK ]

Quoting >from above

* Burials recorded at the Grosse Ile Quarantine Station.
* Information about 4,871 people who were buried at Grosse Ile between
1832 and 1937.
* Deaths that occurred at sea.
* Information on 4,936 people who died on ships at sea, on the
St. Lawrence River or on quarantined ships at Grosse Ile, >from 1832 to
1922.
* Hospital Registers.
* Information on 12,196 people who were treated at the Grosse Ile
hospitals between 1832 and 1921.

The name I am looking for is Pesie FURMAN who died April 30, 1906 on the
SS Dominion sailing >from Liverpool with her mother Perle FURMAN and 3
siblings and a cousin. The names in the accompanying database are Pello
FORMAN etal. But this database is for those who were actually quarantined
at Grosse Isle and Pesie died so is not included.

The passenger manifest has accounted for all passengers in 1st, 2nd and 3rd
class and there are no deaths at sea.

Since the names are misspelled I searched for all the people on the SS
Dominion but Pesie does not appear.

Thank you.

Re: Ship Atlanta arriving to Argentina #general

Alberto Guido Chester
 

Let me add my two cents

I have rechecked the CEMLA website and will translate every info on
grandfather Markus, probably misunderstood because of language differences.

FELSENSZTEJN Markus
Age 20
Nationaity Polish
Profession Butcher
Arrived to Buenos Aires on 1923/06/14
Steamship Atlanta
Port of origin Trieste. (I suggest checking where was Trieste located
at this time, because if memory serves it swtiched between Italy and
Yugoslavia).

Hope this helps

Re: Hungarians in the USA post 1950s #hungary

I wanted to close the loop on the two requests for advice that I have sent =
in the past 10 days since it has been very successful and is a glowing test=
ament to our H-Sig. I was able to locate Klara/Rachel Perl and confirmed th=
at she is a family member. In fact, the closest Perl relative I have ever f=

Many people reached out to me with various ideas and offers to help but I w=
ould like to thank three of our H-SIG members in particular who were incred=
ible, Gabriel Bar Shaked, Andres Carcientes and Barbara Zimmer.

As far as some research tips - MACSE the Hungarian database is excellent fo=
r records prior to the 1950s and is limited beyond that. There are two data=
bases that helped me find this new relative in the first place.
The US Holocaust Museum digital archives has now fully transcribed the Nev=
eklarsfeld list of names including the ones of survivors in Budapest in 194=
6. It generally lists the person's mother's name but unfortunately you cann=
ot search using it making it a bit harder to find married women if you don'=

or a number of years one could not access this list online since the NeveKl=
arsfeld website closed and USHMM had not properly transcribed all records.=
I am not sure when this changed but it is recent.

Secondly, the JDC.org website has a good digital archive containing cards o=
f those who left Hungary in the 1950s and stopped in Austria on the way. It=
is there I found the card for Perl Klara born in Budapest in 1934 with the=
exact date.=20

from there, we were able to search in the US on Ancestry.com and came up wi=
th her married name, but only after trying various methods. Putting in Klar=
a Perl with her birth date did not work, one needed just the date and first=
name as well as specifying Hungary as place of birth.=20

This has been a very exciting week for me and I wanted to thank everyone fo=

my research into the current era when data is less openly available.=20
