Re: Translation HOLLAENDER Loslau #germany

Two small points:

1) That should read "Leobschuetz," not "Leobsch." As the moderator
notes, the diacritical marks cause problems. Instead of an umlaut, put
an e after the letter. The two forms are entirely identical in German
spelling.

2) "Suetterlin" (note the ue instead of u-umlaut) is actually a reformed
version of the old German cursive writing (Kurrentschrift), which had
been around for centuries. "Old German script" is more accurate.

A complete translation is not necessary a summary will be great.

Seeking information on sons of Seder Hadorot (Jehiel HEILPERIN) #rabbinic

sbloom@...
 

I am seeking any kind of useful genealogical and biographical
information on the sons of the Seder Hadorot, Jehiel HEILPERIN of
Minsk (1660-1746).
I have very little.

One son, presumably the oldest, was Moshe, and he became grand rabbi
of Minsk after the death of his father in 1746. So, clearly,
he was alive in Minsk in 1746, but beyond that, I don't know much,
other than that by the time we get to the 1770's other individuals
start to be named as Rabbi of Minsk. So, I can guess he died around
1770-1775, but do not know this as fact. I know nothing about
any descendants.

Another son was Isaac (Yitzhak). I know nothing of him, other than
his son, Aryeh Leib, published the book "Seder Hadorot" (the one that
got his grandfather the eponymous nickname) in the 1780's in Germany,
so I imagine that the grandson was at least alive in the 1780's.

Meir Wunder suggests that perhaps the Vaslui Hassidim (Halpern
dynasty) descend >from another son of the Seder Hadorot named Isaiah.
They definitely trace to Isaiah, but its unclear whether the SH
really ever had a son named Isaiah.

I am interested in this because my rabbinic ancestor, Reuven Halpern
of Glowno, Poland (c. 1750-1816) , claimed descent >from the Seder
Hadorot, and considering the common surnames, I assume for starters
that he is a direct male line descendant of the SH (though I know
there are many cases of men getting names >from fathers-in-law
upon marriage into a famous family). But, I can't really determine
which son of the SH he descends from. Its unlikely to be the Isaiah
line, since that line is well know.
So, that leaves the Moshe or Isaac line. If I had to guess, I'd go
with the Isaac line for two reasons: 1. we know that this line
extended for at least another generation longer
than the Moshe line and 2. I know that the name "Leib" appears
commonly in my Halpern family, especially in conjunction with Reuven.
Perhaps, my Reuven was the son of Aryeh Leib, son of Issac, son of
Jehiel? This would probably mean my Reuven was born slightly earlier
than I have guessed, but it can still fit.

Seeking Descendants of Rabbi Sigmund HECHT #rabbinic

elowith
 

List People,

I'm slowly making headway on finding living branches on my
ever-growing family tree. My current goal is to track down any
descendants of my first cousin (well, with three removes) Liska Tuska,
who married Rabbi Sigmund Hecht in 1875. Rabbi Hecht was born in
Hungary, and had congregations in Alabama, Milwaukee, and finally LA
(Wilshire Boulevard Temple) before his death in 1925. I have found
information on his early descendants via the Census, etc., but then
the trail goes cold - and the surname proliferates. Any information
on him and his descendants would be much appreciated.

Thanks for your help in advance,

Joanne Tuska Goulding
frelzna@gmail.com

Interested in surnames: BRAUER (Germany), LEOPOLD (Alsace-Lorraine),
BLOCH(Alsace-Lorraine), TUSKA (Hungary), BEIG/BEIK (Hungary), EISNER(Hungary),
GOLDFADEN(Russia/Ukraine), MESHORES/MESHARES(Lithuania), and
BUKANSKY (Lithuania)
