ViewMate - 1905 Vienna burial record (German) #general

John Berkeley
 

With no documentary record of my great-grandfather Jacub BERKOVIC, I
have sought to find information on his supposed death, and presumed
burial, in Vienna. The story passed down through the family was that
he was an accountant/tax collector in what was then Szeklencze, now
Sokirnitsa in Ukraine, became ill and was sent to Vienna for
treatment, where he passed away at the age of 42. No dates or any
further information.

Having discovered a burial record for a Yakob BERKOWITSCH in Vienna,
aged 42, with apparent mention of Szeklencze, I was confident this was
my great-grandfather. However, although mentioning his home village,
there appears to be reference to another location and I should be
extremely grateful to anyone who can accurately translate the written
record.

It can be found on ViewMate at the following address ...

Dobromil Research #poland

Adina Bernstein
 

Hello

If anyone is doing research on Dobromil, Ukraine (used to be Poland),
I have an interesting video for you.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KUZ4XBbbkw

My mother's maternal grandparents Saul and Ida Miller (nee Lowenthal)
both immigrated to America >from Dobromil around the turn of the 20th
century. A distant cousin on the Lowenthal side of the family send
this link to a relative and he forwarded it to me. The book with
the blue cover, Dobromil, is the story of the lives my family lived
before they came to America.

Transcribers wanted: Lissa census. It's easy! #poland

Roger Lustig
 

Dear all:

In 1793, Lissa/Leszno, on the western edge of the former Posen Province,
became Prussian in the 2nd Partition of Poland. 4 years later, new
regulations demanded that Jews in the new provinces adopt a surname.

There is little evidence that such surname adoption actually occurred
throughout South Prussia and New East Prussia. The Lissa town
records--now on line--contain several lists that plainly show that the
local Jews did indeed take--and keep--surnames, and that they did so
around 1798.

The biggest prize in this collection is a complete census of the Jews of
Lissa, taken in 1806-7. It has over 3,600 entries and lists everyone,
young and old. Even better: its written mainly in a nice, round Latin
script that many of us will have no trouble reading.
http://tinyurl.com/LissaThumbs gets you to a page of thumbnail images.
Click on the 2nd one >from the right in the top row to see the first page
of the census. For further enlargement, click on the "enlarge" icon to
get a full-sized, downloadable scan.

There are about 100 pages to transcribe. Who wants to do a few? Or even
just one? All collaboration is welcome. This will go into both the
Germany Database and JRI-Poland.

Just email me at this address.

Thanks in advance,

Roger Lustig Princeton, NJ research coordinator, GerSIG and Prussian
Poland area coordinator, JRI-Poland

Four-line translation request - Hebrew #general

mike yesnes
 

Person's name was Elias EISENBERG, by 1857 in Russia/Poland.
Arrived in port of New York in July of 1886. Lived and died
in Mpls. [Presumably Minneapolis, MN - MODERATOR] Was a tailor.

I have sentences in hebrew >from a headstone that I would like
some english translation. I will give each hebrew letter for
each word.

First line on headstone >from right to left:

aleph,yud,shin{man/husband?},next word starts with gimel,bet,bet,dalet.
Next is resh,next is aleph,lamed,yud{hebrew name for Elias/Elijah/Eli?},
next word is tzade,bet,yud.

Second line:

bet,resh{son of},next word shin,mem,vav,aleph,lamed,next zayin,
aleph,gimel,vav,vav,ayin,lamed.

Third line:

aleph,yud,yud,vav,ayin,gimel,bet,ayin,resh,gimel. Next gimel,
bet,samech,resh{died}, samech,zayin{67 yrs.old?}

Bottom line:

shin,betsamech{January/Shevrat}, next tav,resh,pay,dalet
684 + 1240 = 1924

Hebrew lettering next meaning "May his soul be bound up the
bond of external life"

Would appreciate your assistance. Thank you.

MODERATOR: Much easier for everyone involved (and more reliable)
would be the posting of a photograph of the text in question on
ViewMate ( http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ ) which is
