Re: Yachsin, certificator of family trees ? #general

And in Yiddish, the word "yichus" means having distinguished people in your
family tree.

Transliteration of Hebrew always gives problems but thanks to the
fundamental Hebrew rule of word **roots** one can see what is meant to be
seen:

Yod Chet Samech = Yachas = Relationship

The intended word here was Yi'chu'sin = the family relationships between
people

I have a family tree of the kind which had the leaves written in with
individual names. It was written in Germany in 1842 and it was called
"Yichesbrief" = a "letter" showing the family relationships

Vilna, Lithuania was called a Yachsin.

I had never heard before of this as a way of tracing Jewish ancestors
as, for instance, that the first page of Siddurs were used to keep
family records.

The word yachsin shows no related results in Google.

Can someone illustrate on the profession of yachsin, where was it
usual, at what time in history it happened and any additional info ?

Thanks in advance.

Where to deposit testimony #general

John Hoenig
 

I recently found a cousin in Romania and when I visited her she told us her life
story. She's a Holocaust survivor. We have written down what she said, translated
it to English, and added some references which back up what she said. We would
like to deposit her statement in appropriate places. I should know where to send
it but I don't. Can someone suggest a place or places?

Thanks.

Help reading a birth record #austria-czech

Michael Gordy
 

I am looking for assistance with the first record on this page in the
Boskovice birth records:
http://www.badatelna.eu/fond/1073/reprodukce/?zaznamId=135&reproId=1407212
https://tinyurl.com/ydentpaf

I know that the father is Adam Fleischer and the mother is Ester
Frisch, and the date of birth is clear too. Is the child named
"Leibmann"? And what about the line above? It appears to refer to
the village "Radizko." I know that this family was connected to "Male
Hradisko" and wonder if "Radizko" might be the German name.

Please respond privately!

Heartful thanks to the many genealogy researchers who sent valuable clues to
help find my relative. Within less than 48 hours, we struck gold! In
addition, several related hints may help us discover other far-flung family
members.

Searching for Miriam Leiter Haber BEUTEL in Israel and / or descendants #austria-czech

Selma Sheridan
 

Dear fellow researchers,
I have Yad Vashem Pages of Testimony >from 28/04/99 submitted by Miriam
BEUTEL, living in Kiriat Ata near Haifa, regarding BEUTEL relatives Ana and
Rakhel (born in Vienna), Sara and young boy (born in Podhajce). All were
murdered in Podhajce, Tarnopol, Poland, in 1943. We have been unable to
find Miriam BEUTEL or her family in Israel. She would likely be related by
marriage to my great-great-grandfather Mordechai BEUTEL (and his son Hersch
BEUTEL) >from Skalat near Podhajce, who moved to Vienna. We would like to
contact Miriam BEUTEL and / or her descendants, to learn more about this
branch of the family. Many thanks,

posting to discussion list #romania

BARBARA HERSHEY <barbara.hershey@...>
 

Discussion Group readers:

The moderators of this group have asked that I send some reminders
to our members regarding the Jewishgen requirements for sending a
message for posting to the list.

1. When responding to a post, particularly one you have received
in the Digest, do not use your Reply key to respond. This drags
the entire Digest with it and creates a difficult situation for
the Moderator. Rather, please start an entirely new message.
Include a brief reference to the message to which you are responding
so the prior message is identifiable.

2. Do not use any diacritical marks or accents. The server can not
decifer them and renders the message unreadable. If this happens,
the moderators will delete your message and ask you to resend it
without the marks. This creates extra work and delays the delivery
of your message.

3. Always sign your messages with your full name and your complete
place of residence - i.e. city, state/province and country.

4. Remember also that the message must be sent in plain text.

Those of you who heard about upcoming changes to the format of the
discussion lists, that will permit more options for writing, please
know that the changes are still expected and announcements will be
made once they are in effect.

Thank you for your cooperation and participation. Our moderators are
hard-working volunteers and they thank you for observing these rules.
