Identifying Students in 1902 Yeshiva Photo #hungary

Madeleine Isenberg
 

To All,
I've posted a photograph of a group of rabbinical students in the
Pressburg Yeshiva, in 1902. Pressburg is now Bratislava, Slovakia.

The same photo was posted last year (ID 62812) by another person whose
ancestor was a FRANKL. This time, I believe I recognized my own
grandfather, Leopold GOLDSTEIN, circled, as the person next to one in
62812.

Does anyone know of other rabbinical students who might have been
there at the same time and are possibly in this photo?

Re: Different first names in different sources #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

Ellen Gottfried asked how to tell which is the correct first name for
her relative Aaron KENIG, whose grave father's name is Judah (I assume
she meant Yehuda) on his grave but Abram on his social security
application. His birth record is not available.

There are two approaches that I see. First, he probably did his own
social security application, but little likelihood that he designed his
own grave marker, so the social security record is more likely to be
correct. This still leaves a lot of uncertainty.

However, there could be other records that might mention his father's
name, such as his death certificate or immigration manifest, which
could serve as a tiebreaker. If neither of those can be found easily,
his father's name should also be on similar records of his siblings,
assuming he had at least one.

Romanian Jewish tours. #romania

Hi: We are planning a roots trip in 2019 to Romania.
My great,great,great,great grandfather,was born in Falticeni in 1806 and
migrated to Safed,Palestine in 1832.He was known as Rav Israel (Zusha )
GREENFELD or GRUENFELD. Does anyone know of tour guides (Jewish or non
Jewish ) who could help me in the towns of Falticeni or Suceava ? I
probably will need someone who can speak and read Hebrew and or Yiddish.
I would like to view old graveyards and visit any city hall looking for
old records.

Please email me any information or ideas.Thank you,

Re: Keshmer, Roumania? #romania

David Osachy <osachy@...>
 

Hi Hilary,

My best guess off the top of my head is that this may be a village
that is today known as Caracusenii Vechi, which is located just on the
Moldova side of the current border with Romania. There were a few
Jewish families living there according to the 1897 Russian census, but
it was too small to have its own synagogue or official community. It
would make some sense that "Keshmer" was its Yiddish name, though the
Romanian name clearly has Turkish origins (which is not unusual for
that area), "kara" for example meaning black.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caracu%C8%99enii_Vechi

There are other possibilities as well, such as another very small
village with a similar name (though one that would be a bit less
likely to be known as "Keshmer" in Yiddish) that is in Moldova close
to the current Ukrainian border. There is also the much larger town
of Calarasi in Moldova, about 30 miles east of Iasi, where there
surely was a fair-sized Jewish community and synagogue, etc. I don't
know what that town was called in colloquial Yiddish. Could someone
from there have been known as a "Keshmer"? Maybe...
As the borders changed, it would help to know the year that your
ancestor said his birthplace was Romania (not his birth year) to see
if I am on track with these possibilities.

Good luck,

Rabbi David Osachy

I've checked the JGen Town Finder, and the only results are in Poland,

The two individuals were born in Keshmer in 1883 and 1884. The
information is on his Declaration of Intention (1920) and Petition for
Naturalization (1922), and the writing is very clear.
Their passenger list says their last residence was [what looks like]

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Is there a restriction on taking photos of headstones (Metzevahs) in French Cemeteries? #france

Jan Meisels Allen
 

In response to a posting I did on JewishGen and IAJGS I was advised that
there is a restriction in France in taking photos of cemetery headstones
in French cemeteries. Can someone in France or someone who is aware of
the practice or prohibition please let me know. What I am trying to find
out is whether prior approval of next of kin or the cemetery is something
in France or an outright ban on taking photos with or without permission
in France.

Thank you

Below is the posting I did:

Genealogists are cemetery-goers. We all do it to record information
for our family histories and we take photographs of the headstones.
Recently, I learned about the problem which may be unique to Western
Australia,but I am not certain so I am asking if anyone, anywhere in
the world, other than Western Australia, is aware of a policy that
before photographing or videoing a cemetery headstone prior approval
by next of kin is required. If you know of such a practice please
let me know.

History
Recently, a posting on an Australian group for Australian Jewish
Genealogy told that the Western Australia Metropolitan Cemeteries
Board put up signs prohibiting photography of graves without consent
of next of kin. This applies to cemeteries in the Perth metro area.
This covers both Jewish cemetery areas in general cemeteries and
non-Jewish municipal cemeteries in Western Australia. While the
stones themselves are in the public domain,prohibiting photography
is a problem for genealogists. The Western Australia Metropolitan
Cemeteries Board charges for taking photographs, but I don't
know if that is what is behind their prohibition of obtaining next
of kin permission. What happens if there is no living next of kin?

According to the Western Australia Metropolitan Cemeteries website
(http://www.mcb.wa.gov.au/) ) they are responsible for 6 cemeteries,
several of which have Jewish sections.
This is the rule >from their bylaws as amended in 1996:

Recording on film or videotape
Substituted
19/1/96 80
(1) A person shall not, without the prior approval of the Board,record
on film or videotape any image or sound within a Cemetery.
(2) A person shall not record on film or videotape a funeral, headstone
or memorial within a Cemetery without the prior approval of the next
of kin of the deceased person whose funeral, headstone or memorial is
being recorded."
