A "Fensterreinigungs-Institut" was a window cleaning service. There
were such businesses in numerous German towns in the early decades of
the 1900s.

Does any one know where I can find immigration records for Argentina in the
early 1900's? I may have found a relative who was born in the Ukraine and
emigrated to Argentina in the early 1900's, but I need more information
about him. His name was Isaac Boidman. He may be related to my grandfather,
Morris Bothman.

HERSCHER family from Budapest #france

Selma Sheridan
 

Dear researchers,

I am trying to learn about the family of my cousin's husband. Here is the
background.

My father's mother had a sister, Cecilia BAUCHMANN, who lived in Budapest.
Cecilia married David CENNOVER / SYNOBER. They had 3 daughters: Ilona, Sara,
and Anna.

Sarah married Mathias HERSCHER. His parents were Natan / Nachmann HERSCHER
and Dora / Dwora ASDERBALD / ASDERBALL >from Budapest. The young couple
moved to France, in the early 1920s. They had 3 daughters, born in France:
Cecile (born in Roubaix), Odette (born in Paris), and Marguerite (born in
Lens). The family was deported >from France on different convoys and
murdered at Auschwitz.

Thus far, I know nothing more about Mathias and his family. Where in
Budapest did his parents live, what trade or profession did they have? Did
Mathias have siblings, aunts and uncles? What school did Mathias attend,
what was his profession? Did he have a religious marriage and / or civil
marriage in Budapest, before moving to France?

Another question concerns Sara's older unmarried sister, Ilona CENNOVER, who
travelled to France around 1930 to help Sara with the children. We don't
know what route she took, whether through Switzerland or Germany. Family
lore says that Ilona was "lost" somewhere in France, and was never heard
from again. What happened?
I was in Budapest in 2002, visited the gorgeous Dohany synagogue. I don't
speak Hungarian, and could not get help at the archives. Any help from
researchers would be greatly appreciated.

Special double presentation at March 24 Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois meeting #general

events@...
 

March 24, 2019, JGS of Illinois meeting features two genealogy talks:

"The Margarine Moonshiners >from Minsk" and "Conducting Story-Driven
Research" will be the topics of two lectures by genealogist Tammy A.
Hepps at the Sunday, March 24, 2019, meeting of the Jewish Genealogical
Society of Illinois at Temple Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook,
Ill.

Registration and networking will open at 12:30 p.m. For this meeting

---At 1 p.m.: In "The Margarine Moonshiners >from Minsk," Hepps offers a
"rollicking genealogical journey tracing a group of brothers and
brothers-in-law recently emigrated >from Minsk, who set out to sell
margarine as butter in defiance of one of the stranger pieces of
legislation ever passed." Part of the action in this family history
adventure takes place in Chicago.

---At 2:30 p.m.: In the second presentation, "Conducting Story-Driven
Research," she explains how thinking of your family history research
like a storyteller can make you a better researcher and can help you

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake
 

It all came to a head when a poor Jew, wife of a wagon driver, brought
a chicken with a broken wing to one of the rival Hasidic rabbis in
town. After he initially pronounced it "treyf," he saw the tears in
the woman's eyes, took it into his kitchen, came back with a chicken
in hand and "said with joy: 'Yes, the chicken is kosher.'" (As you'll
see, there's a twist to what the rabbi did). This exacerbated the
already heated rivalry between the two Hasidic dynasties and their
rabbis in Czyzewo, Poland. Insults had been hurled between their
followers who, at one point, came to blows. I should stop and note
that this account, >from "The Great Peace" in Czyzewo's Yizkor book, is
subtitled "A folk tale about Czyzewo in the past." But even if
imaginary or embellished, it certainly reflects the competition among
Hasidic groups that is described in other Yizkor books. And it makes
for good reading.

using different surname than father: why? #general

Deborah Schultz
 

Hello. Although I have looked through the discussion list archives, I
couldn't find an answer to this question. I hope that someone here may
be able to assist.

My great-grandmother's uncle, by every indication, is the son of
Solomon (Sholem Gershon) VEXLER or WECHSLER. The VEXLERS, >from Russia,
apparently lived in the area of Vitebsk (now Belarus). This son,
Raphael, who married into a family located in Glubokoye, Disna
district, Vilna province, always used some variation of the name
Raphael STILLMAN (both traveling to the U.S., as well as living here).
I found someone whom I believe is he, on a Russian revision list from
1875, living in his in-laws' hometown of Glubokoye (now Hlybokaye,
Belarus); there, he used the name SHTILMAN.

Raphael's parents, on his death certificate, are listed as Solomon
STILLMAN and Ida (no last name given). Raphael's name in Hebrew, on
his tombstone, is "Rafael son of Mr. Sholem Gershon." Some of his
descendants have heard the name STILLMAN. They introduced me to a
cousin of theirs, descended >from Raphael's sister, who confirms the
family is descended >from Sholem Gershon, but wonders where the name
STILLMAN came from.

I know >from discussions on this list that in other areas (belonging to
Austria-Hungary), some couples just had a Jewish religious marriage,
which wasn't recognized by the civil authorities. The children of
those couples used the mother's maiden surname. Did this also happen
in Russia? Was Raphael's mother's name Ida STILLMAN?

Uncle Raphael's descendants and their cousin, as well as I, are very
curious about this. If anyone has an answer, I would be very
appreciative. Thanks for your time!
