STEINHARDT in Rozwadow #galicia

Inacio Steinhardt
 

I have been unsuccessful so far in finding vital information about my
grandfather Hersz Mendel (Herman) Steinhardt, of Rozwadow, and
about my greatgrandfather Kopel (Yaakov) Steinhardt, probably also
of Rozwadow. I assume that Hersz Mendel was born around 1880.
He was also known in Rozwadow as Hersz Kopels, because of this
father's name. Any directions for further investigation will be highly
appreciated.

Lin Herz asked for sources on historic German political geography.

Dear Lin,

perhaps this website may help you:
http://gov.genealogy.net/search/index
It is the 'genealogische Ortsverzeichnis' " historic gazetteer "
In the left column there is a button 'Sprache wechseln', push it und you
can use the English version.
You will find a lot of information about the politcal structures in the
past and today! Best Regards,

For instance, I have that my 2x great grandfather Emanuel Manasses
ADLER comes >from Markelsheim, Baden Wurttemberg, Germany and died
in the same place, but the document came out Markelsheim,
Main-Tauber-Kreis, Bavaria, Germany=2E

I don't know if if Main-Tauber-Kreis is a newer name than Baden-Wurttember=

And a cousin's widower had the name of the place as Bad Mergentheim,
instead of Markelsheim=2E I'm not sure if that is a nearby city, or what=

If a book exists that would make this easier to look up, it would be

Widow using maiden name? #bessarabia

Deborah Barr
 

My great-aunt Jennie, whose maiden name was Lumer, was 27 and widowed when she came over
in 1907. Either she married someone with the same last name as herself or else she reverted to her
maiden name, because she went by Lumer on the ship and thereafter. I do have a piece of
evidence that her husband's name may have been Fine, but I'm not sure it's reliable.


Is it likely that a young widow would have gone back to using her maiden name, or should I
assume that she married a Lumer?

Any thoughts appreciated.

thank you to all for Theresienstadt information #germany

Judy Vasos
 

Thank you so much to the many people who answered my call for
information about the housing/retirement scheme our relatives fell
victim to. I'd truly never heard of it before but now understand how
this operated and how easily they could have been duped into
turning over their assets.

And a special nod to Fritz Neubauer for dates of deportation to
Theresienstadt and later to Auschwitz for one family member and
Treblinka for another.

The members of this website are amazingly knowledgeable and
generous in sharing what they know. Many thanks.

manuscript viewmate 43128 #romania

Peter Weinstock <ceteris@...>
 

My father's ancestors came to Palestine in the 1850s.
They were founders of Baskanat Shaanim in Petach Tikvah and also Neve
Yaakov.
One of my ggfs was a scholar of note and he left us a bound manuscript
written in Hebrew characters.
There are many Hebrew and Yiddish words there but I am unable to make
sense of it.
I am posting one page of the manuscript in the hope that someone can
help me, or direct me to someone who can, translate the work.

Re: OPPENHEIMERS of Frankfurt in 1500s #germany

Roger Lustig
 

In the 16thC Jews in German cities did indeed have family names. Alex
Beider wrote a whole book about the old Jewish surnames of Prague. (Yes,
Prague was part of Germany, i.e., the Holy Roman Empire.) I know at
least a dozen people with old Prague surnames, several of whom know
their lineage back to that era.

Frankfurt's Jewish community was large enough to require some form of
identification more precise than patronymics. A look through the volume
Mr Dubin referred to (Ele Toldot) or the old book by Dietz on
Frankfurt's Jewish families will show that quite a few families used a
particular surname for many generations. (Dietz pp. 211-223 is a good
place to start, though one must always be careful when using his book:
his Hebrew was evidently almost non-existent.)

In the case of OPPENHEIM[ER], many Jews with that name, and many more
only a few generations removed >from it, can trace their ancestry back to
the Frankfurt ghetto in the mid-16thC. The oldest of the families with
that surname evidently came >from Heidelberg, by the way. In Mainz, we
have records of OPPENHEIMERs as early as 1410.

In Frankfurt and elsewhere, Jews used surnames if they were members of a
rabbinic dynasty. Some of these go back to the 15thC or earlier as well.

Gesher Galicia Announces New Leadership #romania

Gesher Galicia Info
 

In the eight years she served as Gesher Galicia's President, Pamela
Weisberger worked on an astonishing number of different projects
simultaneously, making an impact on the world of genealogy that few
can achieve. Her enthusiasm was infectious, and she created the
inspiration for many of us in Gesher Galicia to become involved and
work harder at our hobby. Without exaggeration, she was one of the
most creative genealogists of her generation. Many memorial tributes
to this extraordinary woman can be found on the Gesher Galicia web
site.

Although the Board of Directors was always her partner in the many
innovative research efforts that helped Gesher Galicia expand and
change, without her, we needed to reorganize.

Officers. Tony Kahane has moved >from his former position of Vice
President to be the Chair of the Board. On administrative and
financial matters, there is continuity, with John Diener serving as
Secretary and Ann Harris as Treasurer and CFO.

We have organized along the following functional lines: Finance (Ann
Harris), Research (Tony Kahane), Information (Logan Kleinwaks),
Membership (Shelley Pollero, Past President). We are fortunate to have
a continuity of leadership in all the critical functional areas, with
two new board members, Jay Osborn and Logan Kleinwaks. Jay is already
serving as director of the Gesher Galicia Map Room. You can also read
the biographies of our new board on the Gesher Galicia web site.

Within the four key sectors, we have a range of committees and
subgroups, with plans for an expanded agenda. We will continue to
update and improve our inventories - of archival records and of
cadastral maps - and to post these on the web site. Our focuses on
information and information technology and on improving our All
Galicia Database remain unchanged. We already have close relationships
with the archives and researchers in Poland and Ukraine and we plan to
develop these, creating new partnerships with organizations and
institutions.
