Unknown Town Location:Tarascha #general

I recently uncovered a Death certificate of a great-uncle named Isaac BERNSTEIN,
which lists his city of birth as Tarascha, Russia. The date of birth is shown to be
February 15, 1871. Isaac's "Declaration of Intention", shows Warsaw as the city of
birth.

I have searched for a town named Tarascha, with no positive results. Perhaps,
Tarascha is/was a small Shtetl located near Warsaw.

Any suggestions or help with locating the town of Tarascha, would be greatly
appreciated.

Shtetl Travel Program-JGSLA-March 11th #galicia

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

If you live in the greater Los Angeles area, please join the Jewish
Genealogical Society of Los Angeles at our next meeting on Sunday,
March 11th - 1:00PM - 4:00PM at University Synagogue, 11960 Sunset
Blvd. in West Los Angeles:

"Where Once We Walked: Traveling Back in Time"

Four adventurous genealogists discuss recent trips to their
ancestral shtetls in Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine, “Galicia” and
Poland in multi-media presentations:

Mark Heckman attended a summer 2006 symposium of more than 60 former
Czernowitzers in Ukraine. For hundreds of years there was a large
and thriving Jewish population in Czernowitz (now Chernivtsi,
Ukraine), the leading city of North Bukovina and southern Galicia.
Although a large number of Jews survived World War II, most
emigrated to Israel and the West. The "reunion" gave some a chance
to find their old homes and reconnect with a town they left long
ago; others got a first-hand look at a place known only >from family
stories. Mark will show pictures and video >from his trip,
recounting highlights of the symposium and also visits to towns
including Sadagora, Zastavna, Zaleshchiki, Tluste and Horodenka.

In August 2006, Lois Rosen traveled to Latvia. She was researching
the Rozinko family, and planned to meet family members she had
found through her research. She did not hire a guide, but planned
the trip herself, visiting Riga and Daugavpils, and Pasvalys,
Lithuania. She visited the Latvian Archives to meet the researcher
who had conducted her family research and in Daugavpils, she met
members of the Jewish community and visited the restored synagogue
and active Jewish Community Center. She will share the fruits of
her labors by displaying the oversized and artistically illustrated
family tree she has proudly created.

In 2006, on her third trip to Ukraine, Karen Roekard spent two
weeks doing research in both the Scientific and the State Historical
Archives in Lviv, which once was in Galicia/Poland. Along with
Natalie Dunai, she poured through innumerable books, files, maps and
lists, and she will elaborate on the pleasures, treasures, value and
'OY!' of archival research. She’ll also share video of her davening
and singing in the Zolkiew shul (upon which the Belzer Chassidim
based their synagogue), with its amazing acoustics, and explain her
planned synagogue restoration project.

In May 2005, Andrea Massion traveled with her cousin to Ukraine
accompanied by Alex Dunai, spending four days in the Massion shtetl
of Ananiev, along with Odessa, Balta and Uman. She met a cousin for
the first time in Kiev and discovered the real story behind some of
her family's best-laid plans when together they go in search of
answers to a few Massion mysteries lurking in Southern Ukraine. A
brief overview of a wonderful ancestral journey.

More details and directions are on our website: http://www.jgsla.org

LOCATION: University Synagogue – Klein Hall, 11960 Sunset Blvd.,
Los Angeles. Refreshments will be served.

ATTENDANCE/PARKING: Free for JGSLA members, $5 for others.
Non-members are invited to join. Parking is free. The JGSLA Spiszman

FREUND Moses born Prague 1836 died Voslau - buried Baden 1890 #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

I was just testing out the new Prague Meldezettel database plus the Baden
cemetery data I have - and look what I found:

Baden: Moses FREUND born Prague - 22.5.1836 - K.u.K. Hauptmann der Reserve -
died Voslau 29.8.1890 -buried Baden bei Wien {Grave F 384}

Prague Meldezettel database: http://digi.nacr.cz/prihlasky.

1. Date perhaps 1850?
FREUND Samuel Juda (1797)
Freund Pauline (1799) wife died 1843
Freund Barbara (1826)
Freund Esther (1828)
Freund Rosi (1831)
Freund Low (1834)
Freund Moses (1836)

2. Date 1889
Prague - all born there:
FREUND Samuel Juda (1797)- died 6. 4.1860
Freund Barbara (1826) daughter
Freund Esther (1828) daughter
Freund Rosalia (1831)daughter
Freund Low (1834) son
Freund Moses (1836) son

Surely the same man?

And the great advantage of this database is that the names are transcribed for
you so if you cannot read the script, they are there in the top right hand
corner of the screen. And although Samuel Juda died in 1860 he is still listed
in 1889, perhaps because the house was in his name - and we can therefore link
up this family with their parents and find their dates of death.

Instructions: http://digi.nacr.cz/prihlasky.

1. Click *Hledani*; 2. In first field which appears - *prijmeni* enter FREUND;
3. In second field, drop down to *Jmeno* and enter Moses; 4. In third field
drop down to *rok narozeni* and enter 1836.

Click "Hledat" and two Moses FREUND entries appear - click *zobrazit* and all
the data appears - miraculous. It is the same man in both entries.

Unfortunately, we have no photograph of his grave to complete the story.
Once you have all tried this, I suspect we will have an outpouring of postings.
