GLOTZER emigrated to Israel #belarus

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

To all,
Looking over some records I have I find that a number of emigrants
to Argentina then emigrated to Israel, among them are listed from
the Pruzhany Yiskor Book Chaim GLOTZER, son of Yakov GLOTZER.

As this is the same spelling as my grandfather David Glazer used
in his l904 passenger manifest when he emigrated >from Bereza, I was
wondering if anyone would know of the Glotzer or Gloezer family in
Israel >from the Pruzhany District.

Thank you.

Off topic messages #lithuania

Jrbaston
 

This is just a reminder that the LitvakSIG Discussion
Group is about Lithuanian Jewish research.

By "Lithuanian Jewish" we certainly include Historic
Lithuania during the time period that it existed, as
well as the areas that were influenced by Litvak customs
and culture, or to which many Litvaks emigrated (i.e.
South Africa). We are also aware of border changes and
relationships of families in towns in other countries just
over the Lithuanian border.

However, messages dealing with other countries far >from
Lithuania, or queries that have no connection to Litvak
families or towns, are off-topic for this list and should
not be sent to the LitvakSIG Discussion Group.

Either the more general JewishGen Discussion Group
or one of the many other SIG Discussion Groups set
up for researchers of roots in other countries is the
more appropriate -- and effective -- place for such messages.

Thanks for your cooperation,

Judy Baston, Moderator,

Re: Descendants of Meir of Rothenburg #germany

gregor brand <Gregor.Brand@...>
 

Some years ago I read Irving Agus's opus, "Rabbi Meir of Rothenburg"
(Philadelphia 1947). As far as I remember, Agus wrote that no sons
of R. Meir are mentioned in the responsa literature (or anywhere
else), but only daughters (whose names are not known).

In an article of Bernhard Brilling ("Der Name MARAM, MARUM. Zur
Geschichte der Familien Guggenheim, Weil und anderer Nachkommen des
Meir von Rothenburg," published in the Festschrift for Rabbiner Dr.
Lothar Rotschild, Bern 1970, 99 - 125), Brilling explains that the
name MARUM or MARAM (as a first name as well as a surname) indicates
(at least for the MARAMs and MARUMs before 1800) descent >from the
illustrious Rabbi Meir of Rothenburg. Brilling gives the examples
and dates where and when this name occurred. According to Brilling
the first Hebrew appearance of this name was in 1581 on the
gravestone of Jutta BING (daughter of Moses BING), where MaHaRaM
WIRSCHLER (her maternal grandfather) is mentioned. This means -
according to the theory of Brilling - that all descendants of
MaHaRaM WIRSCHLER were also descendants of Rabbi Meir of Rothenburg.

Other families, where the names Marum, Maram or the like occurred
rather often, were the GUGGENHEIM of Lengnau (Switzerland) and a lot
of WEIL families (EINSTEIN was a WEIL descendant, so he probably was
a Meir of Rothenburg descendant, too.) The name Marum, Marem etc.
was especially widespread in the Alsace region, which fits with the
theory that connects this name with R. Meir of Rothenburg.

Hope this helps.

Dear Lativa, Rigan in particulars...

I am very much interested in this meeting and I would
love to read some notes >from this meeting.

My Father , at the age of 17,watched my
Grandparents--Arthur Aaron Jacobson and Anna Liebesman
Jacobson, as they were murdered and then buried in a
mass grave in Riga.

I am trying to find an uncle in Riga who was hidden by
a non-Jewish family. My father is dead now after
surviving 3 concentration camps.

It would mean so much to me and my geneological
research to read some notes >from this meeting.

Could some one be so kind as to send me some notes of
the salient features of this meeting?

Sincerely,
