Re: **Knisbach** place name in Homburg district #germany

Jan Bousse <janbousse@...>
 

Hello Jeffrey,

A place called Knisbach does not appear in a very detailed map of Germany.
Your source mentions it in the district of Homburg. The event occurred in
1904. Homburg is now in Saarland, in the Wikipedia article in German on
Homburg there is no mention of Knisbach.

I found the mention of Knisbach in two similar articles, one of them is:

https://books.google.be/books?id=lnTqMuF8uuMC&;pg=PA234&lpg=PA234&dq=knisbach&source=bl&ots=ockjwYRW22&sig=KJ4zaV6M_v9wx7mAth2RY9UgL2Q&hl=nl&sa=X&ei=4IIrVYC6Eq-07Qbm_oCgBg&ved=0CFwQ6AEwCA#v=onepage&q=knisbach&f=false

"15 Eskadrons in Knisbach, Ramstein, Hauptstuhl, Neubau". I believe most of
these places are now in Rheinland-Pfalz. I suppose the archives in one of
these localities or in Homburg, or perhaps Saarland or Rheinland-Pfalz,
could tell you where it was, when it disappeared as a separate location,
what its history and its Jewish community represented. I wish you success.

Jeffrey Knisbacher <j2456@verizon.net> asked about **Knisbach**, a place
name in Homburg district ....... But the main thing is he was

born in KNISBACH in the Homburg Kreis. Checking on the Web today I find
a list of towns and communities for Homburg, but it does not include
KNISBACH. Has anyone ever come across this name before or have any idea
what became of it? Did it simply disappear or does it have a different
name today? Does anyone have other sources to check?

My name is Barbara Harkins emailing >from New Mexico, USA, speak English (American).
I am just beginning the search for my BEHRENS family ancestry.

Elias August BEHRENS b 1825 - 1835. My ggg grandfather. He had 3 wives

1. Louise Cordes, children Matilda, Martha, Helene (my gg grandmother)

2. Josephine Gerson, children Sigmund, Benjamin, Gustauf

3. Earnestine Jakabson, child Caroline

All born Germany, I don't know where. Helene and Sigmund immigrated to Ohio,
USA around 1885 - 1900. Maybe others.

None of the family was heard >from after the war. Need advise on how to
research cemeteries. Thank you,

(Ukraine-Transcarpathia) Uzhgorod Synagogue Glass Mosaic Dome To Be Restored #hungary

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Jewish Heritage Europe posted an article about the restoration of the glass
mosaic dome of the former Uzhgorod Synagogue. The building now serves at the
Transcarpathian Philharmonic Hall. There is a link to a video with audio of
the interior and exterior of the former synagogue -the audio is in
Ukrainian. While previous renovations changed the interior some of the
ornate interior and exterior design remains-for those you are interested in
seeing what remains of the previous synagogue.

Latvia additions to 1897 Census #lithuania

Arlene Beare
 

It is a long time since I added data to the 1897 Census in the
JewishGen Latvia Database. I am very excited as I now have
2,000 names to be added. They include names >from small villages,
so will be of great interest.

I was, in my opinion, unjustly criticised when the 1897 Census was
added, as the names of children were not included. There would
have been no 1897 Census for Latvia on JewishGen, as neither the
money or the manpower was available to extract the names of children.
The data was subsequently linked to the Raduraksti site.

Once again there are family names but not the names of children.
The data will be linked to the Latvian Archives Raduraksti database
so further research can be carried out.

http://www.lvva-raduraksti.lv/en.html

It will take time to get the data up but I wanted to share this
with you as it is something to look forward to.
