BERNEY #general

Wood <cjwood@...>
 

Thanks to this newsgroup, I've found two cousins I never knew I had and
loads of information about my grandmother and her family. That was from
a reply that came 24 hours after my first posting to the group!!

I'm still looking, though, for information on my grandfather, Alec
BERNEY. He lived in London and died in 1957, two years before I was
born. He was married to Marie (maiden name SPELMAN). That's about all
I know about him other than he is interred at Edmonton Cemetery, north
London. I have no idea what he even looked like so if anyone has a
photo of him, it would be fantastic.

His only son (my father) is Leonard BERNEY.

Can anyone help?

Regards,

Kelme #lithuania

Paul Fisher <fisherpaul@...>
 

I am one of those new readers of Litvaksig who wrote to uyezd and town
researchers/coordinators and received no response.

I want to know if there are 1858 revision lists for Kelme and if the
data is available? and is there a family list >from 1874 or some other
date?

Last but not least, just how much money are we talking about when money
is requested for revision list data? is $40.00 enough?

Sincerely,

Paul Fisher aka Barry Broude

origin of the name "Mathilde" #general

feinber2@...
 

As I have been searching the branches of my grandmother's family tree (which
is rooted in the Mosel valley and the surrounding mountains of Germany) I
have been unable to find any female names that bore any similarity to
Mathilde. I have also not found any male names which had any relationship
to it either. My question therefore is. . . what might an "equivalent"
Hebrew name be. . . and what might othr similiar German names be?

Mathilde's grandmothers (deceased at the time of her birth in 1875) were
Leya Juda and Charlotte (Henriette) Levi. The family surnames that apppear
in the preceeding generations are THAL and NEUMARK.

All help is greatly appreciated.

Jewish Historical Atlases #general

James Bennett <bennett@...>
 

I can recommend two Atlases:

1) "Atlas of Medieval Jewish History" by Haim Beinart,
Carta andSimon & Schuster, 1992 144pp. 116 maps covering
the fifth century (Barbarian Invasions of Europe; Dis-
tribution of Jews in Europe and the Middle East) through
the mid-17th century (The Chmielnicki Massacres 1648-
1650). This a very accurate yet readable atlas. It goes
into great detail, showing a great many routes of Jewish
travellers >from Europe to Eretz Israel; population movements
during the Expulsion >from Spain and Portugal; Jews in
the Ottoman Empire; Jewish settlements in Medieval
France; Immigration to Poland in the 13th-15th century;
Jewish settlements in England and Germany until the
expulsions; The Crusades; Eretz Israel in the Byzantine
period. Although it stops at about 1650, I especially
recommend this atlas.

2) "The Illustrated Atlas of Jewish Civilization" by Josephine
Bacon, with consultation >from Martin Gilbert, Steimatzky Ltd,
1990. 224 pp. A much more general atlas covering the 4000-
year period >from Abraham our Father until the 1960's. Many
photos and extensive text, but fewer, less-detailed maps. It does,
however, cover the past 300 years, which Beinart's Atlas omits,
including Czarist Russia, 20th century Jewry, anti-Semitism
the Holocaust, and the creation of the State of Israel and its
wars of survival.

Panevezys Research Group #lithuania

michael <dewmhw@...>
 

Is this
research group
still up and running? Could someone please advise me how to
proceed?

The Panevezys Research Group was formed and began operating in July of
1998 for the purpose of raising money with which to purchase and
translate the 1858 Panevezys Uyezd Revision List. Some funds have been
raised, and many attempts have been made to locate and purchase these
records. Unfortunately, we have not been able to obtain this particular
list, and are currently in the process of evaluating alternative records
that are available. We will be offering the options to the
contributing membership for their determination. Many box tax, candle
tax, and family lists for various individual towns and shtetls in the
Panevezys Uyezd are available, and it seems certain that we will be able
to obtain many useful records for the latter part of the 19th and early
20th centuries.
If you wish to join financially in this communal effort, please let
us know. We will keep you apprised of developments.
