Jeannette MAIJER #germany

stephane.bobille@...
 

Hello everyone and Happy New Year,
I have identified the names and birth of my great great grandparents
Henri HELLENDALL and Jeannette MAIJER. My primary research goal now is
to find: Selig MAIJER and Johanna MEIER who were the parents of Jeannette.

1. Although I believed that my great great grandmother' Jeanette's family
surname was MAIJER, it may have actually been MAYER, which
is the name listed on the birth and marriage certificates of the two
daughters of Jeanette.

2. The town in which Jeanette was born is in Germany (Muelheim an der Ruhr).

My great great grandmother, Jeannette MAIJER born in Muelheim an der Ruhr 5
September 1859, was their daughter.
Jeannette married Henry HELLENDALL (born Eijsden, Netherlands, in 1856).
They had two daughters, Jeanne Marie and Irma, born Liege.Irma was my great
grandmother. Jeanne Marie married in 1911 in Liege Samuel SPEELMAN ,
born in Amsterdam in 1886. They had seven children.

Jeanne Marie and her husband were murdered in Auschwitz October 19, 1942
with three of their children (John, Irma-Andrie, Claudette-Jeanne).

Their eldest son, Alexander, also died in Auschwitz in July 1942.

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 449391. The family names and ancestral towns
that I have entered in the JGFF (JewishGen Family Finder) are:
HELLENDALL >from Liege.

RAPPAPORT-CHENCINSKI connection #rabbinic

sbloom@...
 

I noticed recently that David RAPPAPORT, an 18th century elder of
Opatow, was alternatively referred to as David CHENCINSKI (meaning,
">from Checiny", a nearby town). I am interested in this name because
some CHENCINSKI married into my BLUMENSON family, the family of R.
Yakov of Widoma (who, as far as I know did not have any substantial
"yichus" himself).

I see >from Gershon Hundert's book on Opatow that David CHENCINSKI
had a son Moshe, and son-in-law, Zelman, both taking on the
quasi-surname of CHENCINSKI (I say "quasi", since there were no
required surnames in general during that period, and the Jews who
had surnames seemed to often change them for any number of reasons).

I suspect my CHENCINSKI relate to Zelman. The reason why is that the
Hebrew name Shlomo (equivalent of Zelman) and the woman's name
Sheindel, repeat in "my" CHENCINSKI family. The original Zelman's
wife's name was indeed Sheindel (daughter of David). My CHENCINSKI,
by the way, are not Kohanaim, but the other rabbinic Rappaports of
this immediate region were Kohanim. I do not immediately see any
RAPPAPORTs in my rabbinic sources (Rosenstein, etc.) that can be
these same folks or their close relatives. Lurie Legacy by N.
Rosenstein refers to a David RAPPAPORT of Checiny, but he appears to
have lived almost 100 years later than the David in question above.

In addition, I can trace my CHENCINSKI to a Josef, b.circa 1750, most
likely in or near Konskie. I suspect he may have been a son of Zelman
mentioned above. I also see >from Konskie records that there was a
Jacob of the same age. I actually think he may have descended >from
Moshe, since he clear has more men with the name Moshe in his branch
later on.

I would appreciate it if anyone could offer some insight, either
privately or publicly (if of general interest), either on the
Rappaport of this region, the Rappaport/Chencinski connection, or any
details regarding the modern Chencinski family.

Yizkor Book Project, December 2010 #latinamerica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

The JewishGen "elders" tell me that there has never been such a record month
in the Yizkor Book Project with a total of 57 new entries, new books and
updates during December. The year 2010, in fact, was an all-round record
year compared to previous years. More than four times as many new entries
added, twice as many new books added and almost twice as many updates were
carried out in comparison with 2009!

Now, as I always stress, there are many, many people behind these figures
and this month I would like to salute a small group of such people. They are
the remarkable volunteer team of Shaul Yannai, Shimon Joffe & Barry Mann who
are working their way through Pinkas Lita (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities in Lithuania) to translate all the community entries appearing
there. Just this month, we put up translations 28 of the entries about the
Lithuanian communities that were devastated in the Holocaust and the final
goal of this team is to completely translate all the entries within it. This
is clearly a mammoth task and I salute this team's dedication and
persistence. It should also be noted that they are also working closely
with the original editors of this encyclopedia, Dov Levin and Josef Rosin,
to assure that the translations and the information they contain, are as
true as possible to the original - awarding them a further salute.

I would like to inform you about something else new that was added this past
month to the Yizkor Book Project. Thanks to the diligent and time consuming
research work of one volunteer, Paul Levit, a new feature has been added to
the Yizkor Book database at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html A
hyperlink has been added to each Yizkor Book's entry which points to the
OCLC (Online Computer Library Center) website at www.worldcat.org. Since the
WorldCat website contains full bibliographic information for each book,
along with links to thousands of libraries catalogs worldwide. This linkage
will supplement the database's current "Libraries" table, thus allowing
JewishGen users to locate Yizkor Books more easily, wherever they may be. My
thanks also go out to Warren Blatt for the concept behind this and to
Michael Tobias for implementing this feature in the database.

December also has seen the quarterly update of our necrology database with
4,330 new entries >from 10 books. The entries are painstakingly prepared by
Max Heffler and Michael Tobias is behind the uploading of the data to the
database. Thanks to both these gentlemen for allowing researchers access to
this invaluable data source at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

Note that the following community necrologies were added this quarter to the
database:

- Ratno, Ukraine 168
- Frampol, Poland 373
- Kossovo, Belarus 163
- Stolin, Belarus 601
- Bol'shoy Zhëlutsk, Ukraine 81
- Sandomierz, Poland 433
- Novoseltsy, Ukraine 1426
- Melnitsa, Ukraine 781
- Pogost-Zagorodskiy, Belarus 235

Latin America #LatinAmerica Yizkor Book Project, December 2010 #latinamerica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

The JewishGen "elders" tell me that there has never been such a record month
in the Yizkor Book Project with a total of 57 new entries, new books and
updates during December. The year 2010, in fact, was an all-round record
year compared to previous years. More than four times as many new entries
added, twice as many new books added and almost twice as many updates were
carried out in comparison with 2009!

Now, as I always stress, there are many, many people behind these figures
and this month I would like to salute a small group of such people. They are
the remarkable volunteer team of Shaul Yannai, Shimon Joffe & Barry Mann who
are working their way through Pinkas Lita (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities in Lithuania) to translate all the community entries appearing
there. Just this month, we put up translations 28 of the entries about the
Lithuanian communities that were devastated in the Holocaust and the final
goal of this team is to completely translate all the entries within it. This
is clearly a mammoth task and I salute this team's dedication and
persistence. It should also be noted that they are also working closely
with the original editors of this encyclopedia, Dov Levin and Josef Rosin,
to assure that the translations and the information they contain, are as
true as possible to the original - awarding them a further salute.

I would like to inform you about something else new that was added this past
month to the Yizkor Book Project. Thanks to the diligent and time consuming
research work of one volunteer, Paul Levit, a new feature has been added to
the Yizkor Book database at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html A
hyperlink has been added to each Yizkor Book's entry which points to the
OCLC (Online Computer Library Center) website at www.worldcat.org. Since the
WorldCat website contains full bibliographic information for each book,
along with links to thousands of libraries catalogs worldwide. This linkage
will supplement the database's current "Libraries" table, thus allowing
JewishGen users to locate Yizkor Books more easily, wherever they may be. My
thanks also go out to Warren Blatt for the concept behind this and to
Michael Tobias for implementing this feature in the database.

December also has seen the quarterly update of our necrology database with
4,330 new entries >from 10 books. The entries are painstakingly prepared by
Max Heffler and Michael Tobias is behind the uploading of the data to the
database. Thanks to both these gentlemen for allowing researchers access to
this invaluable data source at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

Note that the following community necrologies were added this quarter to the
database:

- Ratno, Ukraine 168
- Frampol, Poland 373
- Kossovo, Belarus 163
- Stolin, Belarus 601
- Bol'shoy Zhëlutsk, Ukraine 81
- Sandomierz, Poland 433
- Novoseltsy, Ukraine 1426
- Melnitsa, Ukraine 781
- Pogost-Zagorodskiy, Belarus 235

Gravestone Translation Help - ViewMate #germany

Chuck Koplik
 

Hi,
I have a photo of my wife's grandmother Sady TAFLEVITZ
gravestone. I've put that photo on ViewMate Image Gallery page with
the number 17625. Or access directly:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=17625

I am stumped on the second Hebrew line where her name is written. It
says her name is Sima (which we knew) but we can not figure out the
rest of that line. All of the other Hebrew on the gravestone is easy
to decipher.

artist Felix NUSSBAUM #germany

Irene Newhouse
 

An elderly relative has asked me about the artist Felix NUSSBAUM (1904,
Osnabrueck - 1944, Auschwitz). She visited in Israel in the '60s or early
'70s, she thinks near Engedi, a woman who had many of NUSSBAUM's paintings.
She kept her house very dark to prevent fading. My relative now wonders what
the relationship between that woman and the artist might have been.

I've checked the JGFF, and there are many NUSSBAUM researchers, but none
of them mentions Osnabrueck as a location.

Thanks for any help! I know if I had access to a research-grade library,
I might find the information in a thorough biography, but unfortunately,
I don't.

ROSENBAUM -Safed/Tiberias mid 19th cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

One of my esteemed cousins in Israel believes that our original family
name (before SCECHTER) was ROSENBAUM. (Spelling not definite)

It is known that one of our forefathers, a Yisrael of Ostrov came to
Tzfat (Safed) around 1830-1840, and was thought to be buried in
Tiberias (research into the burial society books in Tiberias didn't
show him but most of the ledgers were destroyed in floods).

The book "Sefer Tveria" published in the 1970s (in hebrew) has a
ROSENBAUM listed in "family names found in various sources" but the
book unfortunately does not note in which source the name appears.

Does anyone have information regarding a ROSENBAUM who emmigrated from
Galicia at the above period or know who the ROSENBAUM who is listed
in "Sefer Tveria" is?

Thanks In Advance
