Beth Yaakov school in Trilport, France #poland

lehrer
 

Hello,

I was wondering whether anyone knows of a girls school named BETH
JACOB in TRILPORT (FRANCE) which had also pupils >from Algerian
descent. Probably it functioned also as a boarding school/

The head master was possibly Rabbi OSER SCHWARCZ.
The school was at least open between the 50's and the 60's.

Zywiec, Poland Jewish Vital Records have been identified and located #poland

Alexander Sharon
 

Hi,

While reviewing Zywiec and vicinity known as Zywiec Administrative
District (AD) data, to my great surprise I realize that Jews have not
been listed as residents of Zywiec at all in 1900 Austro-Hungarian census,
and only 2 (two !) Jewish people have been registered in the first
independent Poland census of 1921.

On top of it, only two localities within the Zywiec AD: Rajcza and Sucha
(Beskidzka) have been recognized as Jewish towns, and listed in JGFF
towns database.
But WOWW Gazetteer and JG info on Zywiec claims 624 Jewish residents.

In In 1626 Polish Queen Constance banned Jews >from settling in her town
Zywiec. This process was known as "Privilegium de non tolerandis
Judaeis" (Privilege of not accepting Jews).
This "Privilege," used >from 16th till the end of 18th centuries in
some European royal towns, mostly in the Poland - Lithuania
Commonwealth and Austria lands, forbid Jews to reside in such towns or
own there any real estates. It also didn't allow Jews the entry
to such towns with exceptions of dedicated dates, usually related to a
market day or a fair.

For this reason Austro-Hungarian 1900 census list ZERO Jewish residents
in Zywiec and independent Poland first interwar census of 1921 lists in
Zywiec only 2! (two) Jewish residents.

Following attempts by Christian townspeople to expel Jews >from trade and
services, was the establishment of Jewish townships known in Latin as
Oppidum Judaeorum.
Such were Jewish townships as Kazimierz near Krakow, Przytyk near Radom,
Rozprza near Piotrkow and similar places near Sambor, Drohobycz,
Sniatyn, Jaworow, Rzeszow and Jaroslaw.

And such near Zywiec was township of not poetic name ZABLOCIE. Zablocie
translates literally >from Polish as "the other side of the swamp".
There several places in Poland and in Ukraine, and Belarus by such names.
Thus it was Jewish township Zablocie near Zywiec that had 624 Jewish
residents - 1921 not Zywiec town proper.

Independent Jewish community Zywiec - Zablocie was established in 1864.
Milowka also became as independent kehila in 1891.

Some listed localities have been incorporated as suburbs of Zywiec, but
this is only took place in 1950, since lack of data in archives under
Zywiec.

Below is Jewish demographic data for Zywiec Administrative District.


Census for Year 1900 , three Judicial Districts (JD) also known as
- Gerichtsbezirk

I Judicial District (JD) Milowka total 569 Jewish residents including:
Milowka 174
Rajcza 163

II JD Saybusch total 838 Jewish residents, including:
Zablocie 390
Sporysz 99

Isep 75

III JD Slemien, total 371 Jewish residents, including folwark (manor):
Sucha (Beskidzka) 184

Help in finding current relatives living in Germany #germany

Phil Goldfarb <pgoldfarb@...>
 

Hello!
I am the President of the JGS of Tulsa, Oklahoma helping someone find LIVING
relatives in Germany.

The family name was SCHMALGEMEIER. There were 3 brothers and 4 sisters. The
last information I have on most was >from 1965. Most likely I am looking for
living grandchildren. They were:
1. Henry W. SCHMALGEMEIER b. Rahden, Germany 6 Jul 1885 and died 3 Oct 1963
in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA. No children
2. Hermann SCHMALGEMEIER possibly born 18 Aug 1882. Last known address was
in Tonnenheide, Germany
3. August SCHMALGEMEIER - last known address in Rahden, Germany
4. Minna Schmalgemeier DRYER last known address in Tonnenheide, Germany
5. Sophie Schmalgemeier REHLING last known address Kleinendorf, Germany
6. Marie Schmalgemeier BORCHERDING b. 3 Jan 1904 d. 9 Aug 1967. I know that
she married a Friedrich-Wilhelm Borcherding (1905-1975) and they had one son
Heinrich-Wilhelm BORCHERDING (11 Apr 1929-25 Aug 1982). Heinrich and his
wife Helene (1931-1985) had one daughter. I do not know her name or married
name. They lived in Wehe-Barnhden and Rahden, Germany
7. Karoline Schmalgemeier BUSCHMANN. She also lived in the 1960's in Rahden,
Germany.

Any help finding living relatives with names, possible e-mail or phone
numbers, addresses would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Orlya 1904 Family List and Shchuchin 1908 Family List (Lida District) now translated! #lithuania

Jrbaston
 

I'm delighted to share the news that the LitvakSIG Lida District
Research Group has translated two very important lists-- the 1904
Orlya Family List and the 1908 Shchuchin Family List. The Orlya
list has information about 1,758 people, and the Shchuchin list
has information about 3,063 people.

Surnames for these lists can be found at
https://www.litvaksig.org/research/district-research/lida-
district-research-group in the Surname Lists section.

The Orlya 1904 list includes information on conscription, including
the year, and information on reasons for arriving and leaving Orlya.
The Shchuchin 1908 list includes some full birthdates that pre-date
the scope of surviving birth records for the town, and -- especially
unusual -- shows five individuals who converted TO Judaism. In all
the years of dealing with records >from Lida District towns,
I cannot remember having seen this before.

These two lists were translated as part of a cooperative effort
between LitvakSIG and Belarus SIG and I especially want to thank
Belarus SIG's Paul Zoglin for translation-related help.

The Orlya and Shchuchin lists, as well as the 1903/1905 Lida Family
Lists and the 1906 Radun Family List, will eventually be publicly
searchable in the LitvakSIG All Lithuania Database and the JewishGen
Belarus Database. But they are currently available only to
qualified contributors to the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group.
A contribution of $100 US will guarantee you immediate access to
Excel files of all translations of records >from Lida District towns
-- new and old -- through December 31, 2021.

To contribute, please go to:
https://www.litvaksig.org/membership-and-contributions/join-and-contribute/
and click on "Research Groups for Districts and Gubernias" and scroll down
and choose Lida.

Next on the translation agenda for the LitvakSIG Lida District Research
Group will be Lists of Inhabitants >from the 1930s >from Lida and other
nearby towns. Your support will make translation of these lists
possible...thanks in advance!

If you have any questions, please write me at JRBaston@aol.com

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Orlya 1904 Family List and Shchuchin 1908 Family List (Lida District) now translated! #general

I'm delighted to share the news that the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group
has translated two very important lists-- the 1904 Orlya Family List and the
1908 Shchuchin Family List. The Orlya list has information about 1,758 people,
and the Shchuchin list has information about 3,063 people.

Surnames for these lists can be found at
https://www.litvaksig.org/research/district-research/lida-district-research-group
in the Surname Lists section.

The Orlya 1904 list includes information on conscription, including the year, and
information on reasons for arriving and leaving Orlya. The Shchuchin 1908 list
includes some full birthdates that pre-date the scope of surviving birth records
for the town, and -- especially unusual -- shows five individuals who converted tto
Judaism. In all the years of dealing with records >from Lida District towns, I
cannot remember having seen this before.

These two lists were translated as part of a cooperative effort between LitvakSIG
and Belarus SIG and I especially want to thank Belarus SIG's Paul Zoglin for
translation-related help.

The Orlya and Shchuchin lists, as well as the 1903/1905 Lida Family List and the
1906 Radun Family List will eventually be publicly searchable in the LitvakSIG All
Lithuania Database and the JewishGen Belarus Database. But they are currently
available only to qualified contributors to the LitvakSIG Lida District Research
Group. A contribution of $100 US will guarantee you immediate access to Excel files
of all translations of records >from Lida District towns -- new and old -- through
December 31, 2021.

To contribute, please go to:
https://www.litvaksig.org/membership-and-contributions/join-and-contribute/ and
click on "Research Groups for Districts and Gubernias" and scroll down and choose
Lida.

Next on the translation agenda for the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group will
be Lists of Inhabitants >from the 1930s >from Lida and other nearby towns. Your
support will make translation of these lists possible...thanks in advance!
