Rav Eliyahu Horshowski #galicia

(This is a correction of yesterday's post. I had the surname wrong. Sorry about
that.)

Rav Juda Gershon Pikholz wrote a lengthy eulogy for Rav Eliyahu Horshowski, av
bet din of Drohobycz who died in 5644 (1883). He refers to him as kin, and more
specifically "shelishi beshelishi im avi." - that is, his father's second cousin.
The eulogy appears as an appendix to his book Hiddushei HaGershunni.

Does anyone have information on how these families might be connected? Rav
Juda Gershon's father was Israel-Yoel ben Pinkas and Sara-Rivka and his mother
was Jutte-Chana, daughter of R' David-Zeev (Ashkenazy?) of Lwow.

In addition to Eve Line Blum's posting dating >from 7 Feb 2005 (Subject:
Wall of Names), I would like to point out that the search engine which
allows to find a person among the 76,000 names engraved on the Wall of
Names contains many errors, due to the huge amount of work associated with
its elaboration. But more than once the engraved names and dates are
correct, although the search engine shows the contrary. The database which
shows up is a work in progress.

They settled in Cleveland. Her daughter Sarah married her cousin Isadore

Can you recognize the uniform? #austria-czech

Claire Sztern <claire.sztern@...>
 

Hello!

This picture was taken in Poland, maybe around 1900.
Do you recognize the uniform of the soldier? My grandfather
says it's not Polish but rather Austrian.
What do you think?

Hello Gersigers,

My name is Janet Kirchheimer and I'm new to Gersig. I'm trying to find out

many customs that are Sephardic, and I'm wondering if anyone knows of any
books or any information about how these customs worked their way into
"German minhag"? Thank you! Regards,

Harav Yair J. Peterzeil #galicia

Pnina Meislish <pniname@...>
 

Dear friends,
Some days ago one of my family members found in his mother's boidem [closet] in Tel
Aviv two documents written in Hebrew
by Harav Yair J. PETERZEIL, Grenadierstr. 4a Berlin to Abraham SCHIMEL.
This man had in Berlin a factory (Fabrik) of glue together with a non-Jew.
So he wanted to know how to manage in Peshach, as the glue was Chametz, and
what to do with the money that they both got when the factory worked in
Shabbath.

One of these documents is a Shtar Mechirat Chametz [temporary sale of non-kosher
food stuffs over Passover] in this factory, repeated
in 1921-22-23,
And the other is a response :What to do with the money that came >from the
work of the factory on Shabbath.
In Granadierstrasse lived in these times The Jewish immigrants >from Eastern
Europe, and Abraham SCHIMEL was one of them.
It seems that so was also Harav PETERZEIL.
Does any on know who he was ?
I will appreciate any help.
Pnina Meislish, Jerusalem

Hello!

This picture was taken in Poland (around 1900 according to my
grandfather), and represents the Bluhbaum / Blibaum family. The man
with the beard is my 3rd great grand father Israel Mayer Bluhbaum
(1847- abt 1937). The two girls are two of his daughters, and the
soldier could be his son. Do you recognize anyone or anything?

Improvements at JewishGen #germany

GerSig@...
 

News >from GerSIG Moderator - March 2005
1. A few days agoGerSIG membership reached 1,000 for the first time ever. I don't
know the reason for the sudden growth but we now number 1,012 members.

2. JewishGen is continuing to upgrade the systems we use to
manage SIG subscriptions and user email address updates.

You will find a link to the new SIG subscription
center in this and every message you receive from
the GerSIG listserver. (Most readers will find the
link at the end of GerSIG messages. Hotmail.com and
certain other subscribers may find it at the beginning.)

I found it interesting to use this link to:
http://lyris.jewishgen.org/ListManager/

At the bottom of the List Manager page, (below the grid)
JewishGen has provided quick links to several
useful tools. They are:

1. "Subscribe to ** other ** JewishGen mailing lists":
Includes brief descriptions of all SIG group content;

2. "Going on vacation?" JewishGen has made it easier
to put your SIG list subscriptions on "no mail" status.

3. "Search messages previously posted to the mailing lists"
JewishGen now provides quick links to *** both *** the
SIG list archives and also the separate JGDG - JewishGen
Discussion Group Archive search engines >from one place.
(The SIG lists and the SIG archives are semi-private.
The JGDG is a public list. To protect the privacy
of SIG members JewishGen must use two separate archives
and archive search engines.)

4. "Change your email address": This link takes you
to the JewishGen ID center. Now you can update
the email address you use for all JewishGen services
an one place. (Including JGFF, FTJP and SIG sub-
subscriptions.)

When you have time, use the link to:
http://lyris.jewishgen.org/ListManager/
that's included in all GerSIG list mail. You should be surprised & delighted
as I was with the time saving features that JewishGen has collected there
for your convenience.

Please remember that improvements like these require the
purchase of new machines (hardware) and programs (software).
Your financial and volunteer support of JewishGen is badly
needed so that JewishGen can continue this work yet still remain a free service.

Use the link to "JewishGenerosity" at the top of this email
message to say "thanks" to JewishGen with a financial contribution.

Galicia Jewish landowners #galicia

Alexander Sharon
 

Dear Galitzyaners,

Following recent discussion on this subject, I have extracted >from Poland
1929 Business Directory list of the Jewish landowners in Krakow and Lwow
wojewodstwa (Province) within the interwar administration borders.

Please note that some villages in the Directory do not show landowners at
all. Jewishness of the landowners have been easily identified by their first
names. In instances where only initials have been given, I have confirmed
their Jewish origin by using JRI-P AGAD Project database.

Krakow Wojewodstwo have surprisingly small number of Jewish landowners. Only
24.
Lwow Wojewodstwo on the other hand had 184 landowners.

Tarnopol and Stanislawow regions are not included in this survey.

Findings have been summarized in the attached two Excel format spreadsheets
(file sizes are 24 and 38 kB, respectively), but I am not certain that those
attachments will be allowed to be posted by the Moderator.
