Why Did Our Ancestors Leave a Nice Place Like the Pale : Program for JGSCV Feb 13, 2011 #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County
(JGSCV) will be meeting on February 13, 2010-Sunday, 1:30-3:30 pm at Temple
Adat Elohim, 2420 E Hillcrest Drive in Thousand Oaks, CA.

The Topic:
Why Did Our Ancestors Leave a Nice Place Like the Pale **

In 1880, fully 80 percent of our ancestors lived in Poland and Pale of
Jewish Settlement in western Russia. We all know of the pogroms (organized
violence) and mass exodus of our ancestors to points west over the next
generation. This talk will provide background on the 120 years of the Pale
from its formation at the turn of the 19th century to its dissolution during
the First World War. It will provide some context to our ancestor's lives in
the Pale, and of course, their decision to leave everything they had known
to make new lives in the West.

** The Pale of Settlement was the term given to a region of Imperial Russia
[it included much of present-day Lithuania, Belarus, Poland, Moldova,
Ukraine, and parts of western Russia], in which permanent residency by Jews
was allowed, and beyond which Jewish permanent residency was generally
prohibited. It extended >from the eastern pale, or demarcation line, to the
western Russian border with the German Empire and Austria-Hungary.
[Wikipedia.org]

Speaker: Hal Bookbinder has been researching eight family lines for over 27
years, identifying 4,000 relatives and tracing two of these lines into the
mid 1700s. A founding member of JGSCV, and former president of JGSLA and
IAJGS, he created and continues to edit the annual Jewish Genealogical
Yearbook. In 2010, Hal received the IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award for his
various contributions to Jewish Genealogy. Hal was recently elected to the
JewishGen Board of Governors. He has spoken at numerous conferences,
synagogues and society meetings on topics >from computing to geography to
brick walls.

Our "Schmoozing Corner" will be facilitated by JGSCV board member and
accomplished genealogist, Marion Werle. The "Corner" is available for 15
minutes before the meeting to answer questions attendees may have about
their genealogy.

In lieu of our monthly book report, as a result of last month's program with
our members who authored books, and the resulting interest on
self-publishing, Sara Applebaum, JGSCV member, who spoke about her book,
will discuss self-publishing at the beginning of the program.

Our rotating traveling library will have Categories A and D. To see
which books are listed under which category, please go to our website,
www.JGSCV.org and look under traveling library. The books are available
starting 30 minutes before the program to shortly after the program.

We have started our 2011 membership renewal drive and anyone interested in
membership may find an application on our website.

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County is
dedicated to sharing genealogical information, techniques and research tools
with anyone interested in Jewish genealogy and family history. There is no
charge to attend the meeting.

The meeting is co-sponsored with and held at Temple Adat Elohim, Thousand
Oaks, CA For more information including directions to the meeting, see our

Location of conservative synogogue in Brno #austria-czech

gluckpast@...
 

My father Jakub BERKOVIC >from Chust (now Khust, Ukraine) served as a
cantor in what family members describe as a 'conservative' synagogue
in Brno. The first police residency certificate I have for him, dated
December 1935, records him living at 14 Krenova, while a second
certificate dated April 1936 shows his address as 20 Dornych. A 1937
German street map of Brno shows a synagogue on the corner of Spalena
and Prizova, just a short distance >from both these addresses,

I should like to know if anyone can tell me whether this was in fact
the site of a 'conservative' synagogue. Satellite imagery of the site
today shows a vacant area of land with all the signs of a building
having been demolished.

Hoping someone >from the Austria-Czech SIG can offer some information,

Holesov Jewish Death Records #austria-czech

I have a page of death records >from Holesov, Moravia, 1802-1803. There are two entries that I think are quite
significant to my research, but I'm not sure if I'm deciphering them correctly. Is there anyone I can send
this page to? The old German script is difficult for me to read, but I'm sure an expert can quickly figure it
out.

If you can help me with this, please email me at robertbhanscom@.... Thanks in advance.

Stupaj and Sczcupak families from Lodz #lodz #poland

martin hecht <martinjhecht@...>
 

Would you have any information as to whether there is any relation between
the Stupaj family and the Sczcupak (pronounced "Stchupak") family,some of
whom (my father, and paternal grandparents Yisroel Tovia and Sora (nee
Zelkovitz)Sczcupak also lived in Lodz?

My paternal grandfather was a descendant of Kotzker chassidim and his
wife of Gerrer chassidim. His father's name was Yekusiel and his wife's
was Rochel, I believe. Her father's name was Avrohom and her mother's
was Baila Hinda.My paternal grandfather came to America after WWI but
lost contact with the family he left behind in Poland; whether he
reestablished a family in America-and where-is not known.

We know precious little about the family and have been unable to locate
or find info connecting them with others. Any help would be greatly
appreciated.
