Freeze who will talk about her latest book, Everyday Jewish Life in

Union, rabbinic sources, as well as previously untranslated memoirs. They
provide a new perspective on the history of the Jews of Russia from
the beginning of the nineteenth century to World War I.

These sources focus on religion, family, health, sexuality, work, and
politics, providing an intimate portrait of the rich diversity of
Jewish life and their confrontation with modernity.

Judaic Studies at Brandeis University. Her research focuses on the
history and culture of the Jews in Russia, Jewish family history, and
women's and gender studies. Her first book was Jewish Marriage and

on Jewish family practices and patterns in Imperial Russia. Copies of
Freeze's books will be available for sale.

ViewMate translation request - Yiddish with Hebrew Lettering #ukraine

Dave Lewak <dave@...>
 

Hi!
My mother recently found some letters we believe were written in Yiddish by Tsipa Mishuris, my mother's maternal grandmother, to Rebecca and Barnet Lieberman, my mother's paternal grandparents. The story goes that Tsipa tried to put a stop to an impending romance between her son, an earnest medical student, and a poor young girl. Her intervention didn't work very well, as these were my grandparents.


I've posted letters in Yiddish with Hebrew lettering for which I need a translation.

Help needed with translated records from Ukraine #ukraine

Paiste, Marsha S. <Marsha.Paiste@...>
 

Dear friends--

My problem has to do with the dates and names found in records >from the Ukraine. The documents were listed on the KDRG Contributors web page. I would appreciate any insight of advice you can provide.

My great-grandfather was Israel Mydansky. Various documents indicate his date of birth as 1848 and that he was >from Shumsk. His tombstone indicates a birth date of 1848 and that his father was Yechiel. Some family members think his mother was Golda. Israel's wife was my great-grandmother Hannah Malkah.

I was delighted to confirm most of this with a translated 1883 list of Shumsk births in 1883. There is record for a child, "Yitschak", born to Yisrael Majdanski and Chane Malke on July 16, 1883. Yisrael's father is listed as Yechuel >from Rakhmanov.

Question 1: Who is this child? I had a great-uncle Max Isaac, born in Shumsk, who used the date of birth July 3, 1884. I suspect this is him, although travel documents list him as Meier. Does it seem correct to assume this birth record is for Max Isaac?

The family appears in a census of Rachmanov for 1858. (Israel Leyb and Yochiel were missed in the survey of 1850.) Parents Yochiel and Enya Zlata are 45 and 40. Son Israel Leyb is listed as 23 years old and another child listed as 5. This Israel would have been born in 1835.

Question 2: The people in the census seem to be my ancestors, but the dates of off. What should I conclude? Also, the middle name Leyb is new to me. Still, Israel Mydansky, son of Yochiel of Rakhmanov seems like it ought to be my great-grandfather and his father. Thee names match those of the tombstone and the place matches the one in the birth record >from 1883. Also, the name Zlata matches the name Golda.

Question 3: If Yochiel's patronymic is Sruliov, can I conclude that my 3rd great grandfather's name was Israel?

I want to think the Rachmanov records are my people, but I am really uncertain. I'd love to appear opinions of more experienced researchers.

Thank you.
Marsha

Abraham and Benjamin SINGER, authors of "Ha-Madrik" #general

Judith Singer
 

I am looking for information about Abraham and Benjamin SINGER,
brothers who were joint authors of "Ha-Madrik," a pedagogic anthology
of the Talmud, written around the middle of the 19th century.
Specifically, I would like to know the name of their father or even
just their town of origin. I am hopeful that in a Hebrew version of
Ha-Madrik, their names will be written in traditional Jewish manner,
so that I could learn their father's name. Unfortunately, I cannot
read Hebrew. I would appreciate help >from someone who can read Hebrew
in locating this book and then translating the authors' patronymic.

By the way, I already know that they are the grandsons of Benjamin
Wolf LOW, 1775-1851, a rabbi and scholar, but that hasn't helped me
find the name of their father.

Thank you for your help.

Researching GRUNHUT family of Bratislavia/Pressburg #general

J Fried
 

Hello All,

I am trying to research my friends grandfather Leopold GRUNHUT April
19 1897- July 1967.
He lived in Pressburg / Bratislavia.

1- Specifically, what we are trying to find out is the following.
Leopold GRUNHUT had 3-4 stores that sold chocolate, sometime between
1939-42 (maybe earlier) these stores were confiscated >from him and
given over to gentiles. How would I even go about finding out more
about these stores? where were they located? does a picture of them
exist? Is it possible to find out more about the confiscation of the
stores? where could I find more info? (none of this is for legal
reason, its exclusively family interest in their history)

2-Is it at all possible to search the Slovakian/Hungarian archives?


Thanks,
Nechemyah S. Fried

his place of birth is shown as Lochewiter, Russia. I can't come up with anything
even close to that. Does anyone have any ideas as to what this place might be?
