Genealo-J, publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of France,
Issue 127, Fall 2016

Patrick BLOND describes the short and brilliant life of Mademoiselle
Rachel (1821-1858), a famous tragedian who can be considered as the
first star of the French stage. Rachel FELIX was born Elisa FELIX in
Mumpf (Switzerland). Her father, Jacob FELIX, was a poor peddler who
went >from places to places in Germany, Switzeland, and France so that
his eight children were born in eight different cities. When they were 6
or 7, Rachel and her older sister were sent in the streets to sing and
beg. At the age of 17, she made her stage debut at the Comedie Francaise
and was soon the queen of the Parisian society. She toured all over
Europe, including Russia, and finally the United States in 1855. She
died in 1858 >from tuberculosis. Her lovers were numerous including the
later Emperor Napoleon III. Patrick BLOND also details the theatrical
careers of her siblings and the fate of her children.

In the preceding issue of our Journal, Martine BERTHELOT PUIG-MORENO
dealt with the 251 Jews >from Spain converted to Catholicism in the
diocese of Barcelona between 1847 and 1947 but mainly around 1940. In
the second part of this paper, we find in a synoptic form the names of
these people. The chart also shows the date of their baptism, the date
and place of birth of each person and when data are available the names
of the parents and paternal and maternal grandparents, together with the
cities or countries where they were born.

Claude STUDIEVIC publishes a paper titled Traces and memories of
Polish STUDNIEWICZ, LINDNER, SZTATMAN, WEINSZTEJN families.. This work
is part of a research in the history and chronicle of a family
emigration >from Poland to France, Belgium and England >from 1913-14 to
1933. The present means of communication, the progressive scanning of
data and their relatively easy access, and the support found within the
Cercle de Genealogie Juive, have helped to fill some of the gaps and
identify ancestors since the 18th century. The extermination of the
members of the family remained in Poland was total while those who were
in Western Europe escaped the disaster with two exceptions. This paper
is dedicated to them.

During World War I, the Ottoman Empire was allied to the German and
Austrian empires. Therefore all subjects of the Ottoman Empire living in
France were strictly controlled and needed official permissions to move
in the country. A team of eight members of our society has been given
the task to analyze, scan and digitalize all the files of the French
diplomatic archives relative to these ottoman subjects. This mean 6,000
files, each for a family. Although Armenians, christian Greeks and other
nationalities are found in these files, 50 to 58% of the total are Jews
and our team focused on them. In many cases, the files allowed us to
build family trees. Our database contains 20,000 pictures of all the
documents. Michele FELDMAN, the author of this paper, details two
interesting families : that of Maurice Moise BERUHIEL, a wealthy
businessman born in Istanbul and that of Joseph SALTIEL, a poor man,
born in Salonique, who was in danger of being interned.

Danzig Database Update #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I am delighted to announce that the following datasets have been added
to the Danzig Database, which is included in searches of both
JewishGen's Germany and Poland Databases. For further details and
special search tips, see
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/germany/danzig.htm.

1) Danzig births 1905-1931, >from FHL microfilm 1184407/2.

2) Judenporzellan Purchased by Danzig Jews, thanks to the research of
Dr. Tobias Schenk. The Danzig records cover 1774-1786, pre-dating
surname adoption in the area, though about half of the people
mentioned might appear on the 1814 surname adoption list. For an
introduction by Dr. Schenk, see also
http://www.jewishgen.org/danzig/judenporzellan.php.

3) Protected Jews >from Hoppenbruch, Stolzenberg, and Langfuhr, 1773,
database-friendly version of content >from our SIG website.

Thanks to Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias for assistance in putting
the data online.

If you are researching people >from Danzig, please help prioritize
ongoing and future transcription efforts by completing the short
survey at https://goo.gl/forms/HQddpV0Eklq53tNH2. Thank you.

Przemysl secondary school records 1851-1939 #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Przemysl secondary school records for 1851-1939, for the gymnasium
named after Juliusz Slowacki, are now viewable online and include
genealogically useful information about students: birth date and
place, father's name and address. Many Jewish students are included
(religion is often stated). These handwritten records are not
indexed, but are very legible and are typically alphabetized per
school year or per class per year. They were digitized by the
Przemysl Branch of the Polish State Archives with support >from the
Ministry of Culture and National Heritage. Note that these school
records are different than the typewritten school reports that list
students but rarely include such details (some of those reports are
searchable at genealogyindexer.org).

To view the records, go to http://www.przemysl.ap.gov.pl/skany/, then
change the top drop-down option, "Nr zespolu," to "387" and press the
"Szukaj" button at the bottom. You will see a table where each row
refers to a group of scans, usually covering a single school year. In
the first column on the left, "Sygnatura," is a link to the scans.
Clicking that link brings up a small image of the first scan with
links below it to jump to other scans. Clicking that small image will
enlarge it. When viewing an enlarged scan, you can press the right or
left arrow to move forward or backward one scan, and there is an icon
on the left of a downward arrow in a circle, which you can click to
download the scan to your computer.

I have no other information about this material and regret that I am
not able to provide individual assistance.

Eli,

First of all, I'd like to point out that there were two towns, both within
the Lwow Province, known by name Szczerzec.

The less known Szczerzec has retained its original name which has been
transliterated by USBGN system as Shcherets, Ukraine at 5007 2334,
near modern Polish border. Town was also known as Szczerzec ad (near)
Nemirow in Rawa Ruska district.

This place had general population of 1,303 folks, including ten Jewish
souls (1896 census). Village landowner was Polish aristocrat Konrad
Stefan Krusenstern, who also owned local alcohol distillery and quarry.

Following WWI, village had 1,237 residents, including 30 Jews (1921
census)

Shmuel and Avigdor ENDE-Jerusalem and YERUSHALMI of Griev, #general

My father-in-law, the late Rabbi Morris JERUSHALMI had a correspondence with
Shmuel and/or Avigdor ENDE who lived and were prominent figures in Jerusalem
during the first half of the 20th cent. I did not see these letter personally.
My wife's family believes that there was some family connection between them.

My wife's family had a close relationship with children of Shmuel ENDE, but
they were not able to shed any light on this connection. Amongst Shmuel's
daughters were Menucha ACHITUV and the wife of adv. Tusia HaCohen both of
Jerusalem and both deceased.

Does anyone on this list have any information as to a familial connection
between the above two families.

Yisrael of Ostrov - Listed in Mazkeret Ligdolei Ostraha #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

According to family sources and trees my ancestor, Yisrael of Ostrog
came to Tzfat during the early decades of the 19th cent., he is buried
in Tveria. He was a descendant of the Mahara"l through R' Naftali KATZ
(the"Smichat Chachamim" and Rabbis of Kremenetz). We have no confirmed
family name for him but he was descendant of the KLAUSNER
family (not son after son). He was also a descendant of the Maharsha"l.

There are two listings for a Yisrael ben Yosef of Ostraha in "Mazkeret
Ligdolei Ostraha" with a note of the author that he believes that they
are one and the same. The above Sefer gives no family name fore this/
these persons.

My mother's cousin, R' Yacov Meir SCHECHTER (one of the leaders of
Breslev chassidut in Israel) believes that our ancestor's family name
was ROSENBAUM though his children changed the name to SCHECHTER
according to their trade.

If anyone knows who the above Yisrael of Ostraha's family name was and
have any idea if either of the listings in "Mazkeret L'gdolei Osraha"
are the same as my ancestor and what their/his family name was I would
be happy to hear.

INTRO - Researching family from Breslau, Silesia including VOGEL in Berlin #germany

Robert Koch <spyderrob2000@...>
 

Hello all,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research off and on
for several years, and I consider myself to be intermediate in doing
German Jewish Genealogy research. I live in Upper Franconia (Bamberg)
in Bavaria Germany. My native language is English and I also speak/read
German. I consider myself an intermediate or user in using a computer.
My experience in using the Internet is fairly extensive
however sometimes futile.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of my wife's

the period between 1936 and 1939, most notably the real stories behind
the "family" story. My JGFF Researcher ID number is 728630. The family

Hello all,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research off and on
for several years, and I consider myself to be intermediate in doing
German Jewish Genealogy research. I live in Upper Franconia (Bamberg)
in Bavaria Germany. My native language is English and I also speak/read
German. I consider myself an intermediate or user in using a computer.
My experience in using the Internet is fairly extensive
however sometimes futile.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of my wife's
grandparents. My primary research goals now are to find out about
the period between 1936 and 1939, most notably the real stories behind
the "family" story. My JGFF Researcher ID number is 728630. The family
names and ancestral towns that I have entered in the JGFF (JewishGen
Family Finder) are: VON BRASE >from Wroclaw; NEUMANN >from Wroclaw,
VOGEL >from Berlin and >from Olescyze.
