Re: HASSAN and ESKENASI birth records #austria-czech

David & Diana Laufer <dlaufer@...>
 

I thank Celia for her comments in response to my message of yesterday.

Josef HASSAN:
It is disappointing to suspect that the records of the Wahringerfriedhof, and of Group 7 Tor I of
the Zentralfriedhof are incomplete. Is there any chance that more information on those cemeteries
might become available ? I acknowledge the possibility that Josef may have been sent back to
Romania for burial, but wonder about the duration of such a trip and the availability of
refrigeration in the 1850's. Also, I have not yet found him on any JOWBR database.

Emanuel HASSAN
I have no idea if he is related to Josef HASSAN. >from the Kartei Matriken I note that he died on
6.4.78 at age 66 and his address was II Praterstrasse 48. His children were Josefine (b.1837),
Sarah (1841), Lion (1843), Therese (1845), Mathilde (1847), Rachel (1850), Marianne (1855), Nissim
(1858 aka Ludwig), Sophie (1861). It appears that circa 1864 he remarried to Anna Zerer.

Marie/Maria/ Marianne HASSAN née ESKENASI
In my years of research I have noted that the spelling of names, especially in the 19th Century was
not consistent. For example I have seen records of females sometimes given the name Franziska and
sometimes Fanny to the same persons. It took me some time to recognise Maria's death record as I
had been looking for a Marianne HASSAN geb. ESKENASIE for that is the name shown in the Trauer Album
for Therese LOEWE geb. HASSAN as Therese's mother. The Stammbaum (family tree) at the back of this
Trauer Album shows Therese's siblings as Rosalie KAISER, Gustav HASSAN, Elisabeth KOHN, Jakob HASSAN
and Rosa LEUCHT. In the Wien IKG
cemetery database I have noted 29 individuals with surname ESKENASI or ESKENASY, their dates of
death and dates of burial (usually 2 days later), and their ages. However, these do not help me
discovering Marianne Eskenasi's birth details. It is also a pity that the records >from which
Mathilde Tagger indexed the Turkish Community's births only starts in 1845. The oral history given
to me by my mother is that the family originally came >from Constantinople.

I trust that the additional details given above will be recognised by someone,and thus assist me in
my search.

Thanks and regards

Unusual manuscript: Bergmann & Ichenhausen #germany

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

I have been sent a clear photocopy of what might be >from a prayer book or f
rom a "jahrzeitbuch". It is connected to, and may have even been written by
Lazarus BERGMANN (born abt 1800 in Dittenheim, and later lived in Ichenhau
sen, then Augsburg) who was married to one of my SELIGMANN relatives. The s
cript looks like Hebrew or Yiddish but has been indecipherable to anyone I
have shown it so far! Maaybe, it's German written in Yiddish script
... who knows?

As Viewmate seems to be inoperative at present, I would happily send photos
of a couple of pages to anyone who would be interested in having a 'stab'
at making sense of it. Best wishes from

Litvak migrants & the Ostrich Feather Industry of Oudtshoorn.

I spotted a REVIEW in FORBES on a newly released book:-
"Plumes: Ostrich Feathers, Jews, and a Lost World of Global
Commerce" by Sarah Abrevaya Stein

PLEASE NOTE: I have NO CONNECTION with the Author or the book.

If Oudtshoorn is part of your family research, you can see the full review at

www.forbes.com/books/2008/11/26/jews-feathers-fashion-oped-cx_rl_1127laneri.html

Ninety percent of feather merchants in the Cape of South Africa were
Yiddish-speaking immigrants >from Lithuania. Many of the
dealers who bought the feathers >from merchants in South Africa for
sale in London, Paris and New York were Jewish. And the
feather-preening factories were mostly staffed with poor immigrant
Jewish laborers.

Zuromin cemetery #poland

I am delighted to let you know that a contract has been signed to clean and
fence the Jewish cemetery in Zuromin and to install a memorial plaque. The
work is being carried out under the auspices of the Foundation for the
Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland.

The necessary preparations are underway now, so that physical work on the
site can begin in the spring. We anticipate that work will be completed by
Summer, 2009 and look forward to rededicating the cemetery at that time.

If this project is of interest to you, please contact me privately.

Margolis/Dubitski/Czaplinski/Medownik/Berlinski families, Bialystok region #poland

rosemary benkemoun <rbenkemoun@...>
 

I am conducting research into my father's family and am eager to share
information with anyone who may have known or is connected with any of my
family members.

Briefly: my late father Szyja MARGOLIS was born 15 May 1914 in the Jewish
agricultural village of Holobudy (in Russian 'Golobudy') in the Grodno
Gubernia of what is now Belarus. He was the son of Aaron, who built many of
the houses in the village, and Mary (Esther Miriam) DUBITSKI (daughter of
Jaakov Menachem >from Nowy Dwor).

Dad's eldest sister Mindl was married to Yermi CZAPLINSKI and they had two
daughters: Esther and Henya. His sister Scheinke was married to Moshe
MEDOWNIK, a tailor. In 1933 my father moved with his mother and sister Luba
to Bialystok. They resided with the MEDOWNIKS at 41 Sienkiewicza St.

Around 1939/1940 my father married. His wife's name is unknown but she was
possibly the daughter of a watchmaker and the sister of Gitl BERLINSKI. They
had a child whose sex and name are also unknown. The entire family perished
in the Holocaust bar my father and his sister Luba.

The existence of Dad's first wife and child was only revealed to me recently
when I accessed my father's post-war testament >from the Jewish Historical
Institute in Warsaw. Unfortunately he did not mention them by name and I am
pursuing various avenues, including this one, to discover their identities.

Firstly, the death should have been registered at the civil registration

able to get a death record of a distant cousin. The situation will
change >from 1st January 2009 onward, when a change in the civil

The NEUBURG/JACOBS family of Bohemia and London. #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Lars Menk wrote re the father of Victor Benjamin NEUBURG born London 1884 ... His parents were Carl
NEUBURG, b. ca. 1856 in the Austrian Empire, general importer in Wien in 1882, and Jeannette JACOBS, b.
1855 in London, daughter of the English cane merchant Moses JACOBS and Rebecca LEVY.

As I wrote yesterday, I spent a long time looking for Carl and his family in the 1891 and 1901 censuses of
England and Wales. In the process, I corrected many *false* NEUBURG born in rural England in the early
1800s to the correct NEWBURY and NEWBERY names.

I was probably tired as [thank you, David Laufer for the hint!] I finally this morning found a Carl NEUBURG
perversely indexed as Charles NEWBERY in the 1891 census as *single*, living in a boarding house alone -
he is a stick factor - born in Bohemia. I take this to imply that he was also involved in cane {nb his
father-in-law}.

So the real English NEWBERY were indexed as NEUBURG and the rare Bohemian NEUBURG was indexed as
NEWBERY!

However in 1891, Victor and his mother were living with his widowed maternal grandmother in large family
unit whilst father Carl was living in a boarding house! Or could this be another Charles/Carl doppelganger?

Rebecca Jacobs 59; Hannah Jacobs 34; Jeannette Jacobs 31 {nb not NEUBURG }; Benjamin Jacobs 31; Sydney
Jacobs 29; Theresa Jacobs 27; Edward A Jacobs 26; Montague Jacobs 21; Victore B Newbury 7 - servants
Eliza Pickford 22 Caroline Eggenton 21 Here we read they were in canvas? furniture.

Furthermore, there appear to be two NEUBURG births registered in Islington in this period - Margarethe
Maud 1887 Jan-Feb-Mar and Victor Benjamin 1883 Apr-May-June, so perhaps Victor had a younger sister
or there was another NEUBURG family in Islington.

In 1901 I have found thAt Victor and his mother were still living with his widowed grandmother and cousins -
the JACOBS family - furniture makers: Rebecca JACOBS 73 grandmother; Benjamin JACOBS 42; Edward F
JACOBS; Theresa JACOBS 37; Jeannette NEWBURG 44 {married}; Victore NEWBURG 19; servants Ernestine
RUST 48 >from Konigsberg; Charles STROHMANN 20 >from Hamburg and Lydia Everitt 22 >from Essex. There
is no sign of another NEUBURG sibling.

Victorâ??s nuclear NEUBURG family did not appear to live together. Were his parents separated? Perhaps
this accounted for his unconventionality and later in his life, his instability? He was taunted for his Jewish
roots and suffered a nervous breakdown. His father may have resided in Vienna or perhaps even in Prague?
I have written about the Spanische Rohrhandler of Bohemia and Amsterdam before â?? cane furniture was
very much the vogue.

I will correct all the false names to NEUBURG for the benefit of future generations of genealogists.
