Lower East Side Book #general

Hi. My name is Larry Epstein. I'm the author of various books on Jewish
life including "The Haunted Smile: The Story of Jewish Comedians in
America." Currently, I'm writing a book about Jewish immigrants on the
Lower East Side. The book will be published by Jossey-Bass/John Wiley &
Sons and co-published by the Lower East Side Tenement Museum. Arthur
Kurzweil, the eminent writer and genealogist, is the editor of the book.

I am currently seeking photographs and any other material >from the
1880-1920 era (letters, invitations, posters, documents, drawings or
illustrations and so on) to be included in the book. Please let me know
if you have such material and are willing to allow it to be published.
Unfortunately, there is no budget to pay for these materials.

Query on Russians who came to US and returned to Russia #general

Rochelle Kaplan <rochelle@...>
 

Dear Folks,

I recently learned that a cousin,Israel CAROLIN/KAROLIN >from what is now
Belarus, near Grodno, came to the US in around 1905 (he is on 1910
Census for Brooklyn, NY and is then 48), didn't like it here, and
returned to what was then Russia. Suggestions for how I might find more
about this return back (particulars like ship manifests, passports,
applications) or general info about folks who did this and procedures
they followed, where I might find records- appreciated. His children
remained in the US.

Thanks.

great-grandfather, Isadore, was killed in Chicago in 1917 >from a boiler
explosion at work. His obituary was under the name of Cohen. His wife,
Rebecca, died in 1935 under the name of Cogan. I suspect the family

Waldheim cemetery records indicate the Cohen/Cogan name as Firstname
(Cohen) Cogan. In looking at the 1910 census, I found Isadore and
Rebecca under the name of Cohen only. Their headstone only has the Cogan
name. My grandmother is buried in the same plot under her married name.

Re: Russian Army Musicians #ukraine

Naomi Fatouros
 

The following are quotations >from some of my
Discussion and SIG Group replies to similar questions
about Jewish musicians in the Czar's Army.

<<Re:Conscription of another type" in the Discussion
Group Archives and
also the correction I made about the author of a story
I had cited). In my response, I quoted part of
amessage which the klezmer musician and
photodocument maker Yale Strom had once sent me during
the course of our correspondence:

"Did you know that many a young Jewish lad saved
himself >from going to the
front lines in the Czarist army by playing in the
military band...in fact
the influence of woodwinds and brass in these military
bands influenced
klezmer music back in the shtetlakh....these guys came
come (those that survived the 25 yr. service) and
brought their talents to the local klezmer
bands.....>>

Some months after I wrote that response, I sent
privately an amusing anecdote I'd read in Jeff
Kisseloff's "Do You Remember This" to the person
who had asked about "conscription of another type."
One of the contributors to this collection of
reminiscences related that his father was a shoemaker
who was the only Jew who had ever reenlisted in the
Czar's
army because he had desired to become a musician and
had hoped he could get training to be one. But when
the recruiters called out "Who is a shoemaker?"
Someone else shouted out his father's name, telling
that the
father was a shoemaker." Whether inadvertant or
knowing, that betrayal ended that father's career as a
musician before it began!

<<Also, on Dec. 14 2001, Jewishgenner Ric (Richard)
Cooper asked me about his family's story about a
relative who had served in the Russian army as a
musician and was presented with a gold baton by the
Czar.

I replied:

<<Ric Cooper has stirred up my imagination again. I
think of a straight-backed shaven-faced man,
unrecognizable as a Jew, wearing an elaborate uniform
and headgear, stiffly conducting fancily-dressed
players of serpent tubas, flugelhorns, cornets,
bassoons, clarinets, woodwinds,
oboes, flutes, trumpets, drums and other noisemakers,
with a Czar benevolently and pridefully beaming down
the glittering array on the sunlit snowy parade ground
spread before him. I can't remember which one of the
three Czar Alexanders played the trumpet. Moreover, I
am doubtful about how marvelous the sound of this band
might have been. I read at a tuba website that during
the years 1860-70 the tuning "Wurm Band" of the
Russian Army was not well-coordinated, and it wasn't
until the years 1874 and 1876 that reform of military
bands was undertaken to "put an end to this cacaphony"
by ensuring all band instruments were of a certain
pitch!)


Both Alexander I and Nicholas I loved holding military
reviews and
parades, and they had several military bands for which
they spent
fortunes for their dress and accoutrements. Like their
armies, Czarist
military bands were based on Western European models.
(Among the other
nations, Finland is said to have had good and well
developed military
bands.) A number of famous musicians, Mussorgsky,
Borodin, Rimsky-
Korsakov and others, played in and composed music for
the military bands
of the Czars. On one website I read that a Czarist
band even played an
arrangment of a part of Tchaikoffsky's Swan Lake.


Mr. Cooper gave his great-great grandfather Ephraim
Matelevitch's dates
as 1804-c.1895. Ephraim was born during Alexander I's
reign. This
Alexander was no friend to Jews, restricting them from
living in border
towns, and reducing the width and length of the Pale
of Settlement. But
to converts he made a number of concessions: a right
of settlement, the
grant of agricultural land, and permission to
manufacture alcohol. He
also allowed Jews to avoid army service through
payment of a tax. So
assuming without a shred of evidence that Ephraim's
parents paid the tax,
I think that most likely Ephraim served during the
reign of Czar Nicholas
I who imposed that compulsory service and that
notorious 25 year term on
conscripts and lowered the age for Jewish boys to 12
(although
unofficially Jewish lads younger than 12 were
sometimes kidnapped).
Ephraim may have been twenty-one or so when he was
drafted and if he was
required to fulfill that 25 year term, then toward the
end of his career
when he was in his fifties, he also served under
Alexander II.

Would Nicholas I or Alexander II have had a gold baton
made, instead
of a usual honorific medal, to present to an esteemed
band musician? I
think so; that would have been an appropriate award.
Gold batons are
still given to excellent conductors.

And would a Czar have given a gold baton to a Jew?
Well, about that I
am not sure. It could be that during his years of
service Ephraim
converted, in which case an award for his meritorious
service would be
forthcoming without much hesitation on the part of the
bestower. But it is
also possible that Ephraim was so talented that he
didn't have to convert
to receive be honored. Even the intensely antisemitic
Nicholas II admired
the work of the never- converted Jewish sculptor Marc
Antokolsky and he
did not prevent the St. Petersburg Art Academy from
offering Antokolsky
the title of "honorary citizen" (which the sculptor
declined). And at the
Czar's express order, he was appointed to the Council
of the Academy for
his sculpture of Ivan the Terrible.


If Mr. Cooper is silently hoping that "there is a list
somewhere" of
honored Russian Imperialist military musicians, I
wouldn't know where to
find it. The books I have on musicians and music
history, including a
1920's edition of Groves, are silent about the subject
of Jewish musicians
in the Czars' armies .>>

Jefferson Market Court - Any Way to Get Information About Cases Heard There? #general

ZIP908@...
 

I found a short article in the December 9, 1895 New York Times about one of
my ancestors having been arrested for stealing a number of bicycles. He was
arraigned at the Jefferson Market Court before a magistrate, and he was held
over for further examination the following day.

Of course this "crime of the century" was not important enough for the New
York Times to provide a follow-up, and I was wondering whether, more than 100
years later, there would be any records available regarding matters heard at
this court.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
