Seeking SCHIRATZKI, AUERBACH #germany

fredelfruhman
 

Hello,
I am trying to find descendants of Lehrer Jakob/Jacob SCHIRATZKI,
born in 1885. [Moderator reminder: Location, Location, Location]

He may have moved to Palestine/Israel.

In the year 2002, his daughter Miriam AUERBACH was apparently
living in Kfar Saba, Israel.

Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Naming conventions #germany

Eva Lawrence
 

I was able to sort out the relationship between two Josephe Neys in my
family by looking at the Jewish names they had previously used. In my
case it turned out that Josephe 1 was known as Kive Mendel, while
Josephe 2 was Josephe Kive, obviously the son of Josephe 1.

It was a French convention that eldest sons took their father's
forename, and Jews too had to accept this formality when taking a
surname as the price of citizenship..

As for all the men concerned having children, it was the wives, don't
forget, who had to be of child-bearing age. At a time where women
often died in childbirth, there was often a second wife who might be
much younger than her husband.

It's likely that Raphaels 1,2 and 3 are related, and their Jewish names
should tell you how.

Yizkor Book Project, May 2019 #poland #ciechanow

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I will start off by noting that this will probably be my last Yizkor
Book monthly report. I will be shortly stepping down as Yizkor Book
Project Manager and my place will be taken over by Binny Lewis. Having
being involved in this project >from around 1999 and leading it >from
2009, it would seem the time is ripe for me to allow someone with new
ideas and energy to take on the project. In the meantime, I will still
be around to help Binny acclimatize to the tasks involved.

I would sincerely like to thank each and every person who has
contributed in some way to the continued success of the Yizkor Book
Project. I am perpetually in awe of the willingness of people to devote
their time and energy to help out in some way to move the various
projects along. I am quite sure that Binny will continue to receive
the same level of support and dedication which will enable the project
to further grow and develop.

As a parting "gift", I am pleased to let you know that the complete
translation of the Wyzkow, Poland Yizkor book is now online. Our
grateful thanks go out to Howard Orenstein who has led this project
from its outset and has untiringly followed through with this project
to its ultimate goal.

Other than that, I would like to note that a number of new Translation
Projects have recently been setup for the books of the following
communities:

- Augustow, Poland
- Skalat, Ukaine
- Zinkiv, Ukraine

The support we need to see these books translated is, naturally,
financial and if you are able to assist in that direction with any
amount, please make your donation on our JewishGen-erosity page (link
below) to the project you wish to support.

Now, before letting you know about the updates and additions, I do wish
you and your families a Shavuot Sameach or a Happy Shavuot.

"Amidst a sea of Cohens in the indices to U.S. naturalizations that

JewishGen Future Scholars Fellowship Heritage Tour #ciechanow #poland

Nancy Siegel
 

JewishGen.org is proud to announce its JewishGen Future Scholars Fellowship.

This immersive program, created in partnership with The Matzevah
Foundation, Inc., will provide an experiential opportunity for younger
audiences to appreciate the application and impact JewishGen, and
Jewish genealogy can have in everyday life.

Specifically, it will focus on the role of Jewish cemeteries today in
preserving the memory and legacy of former Jewish communities. Our six
highly qualified Fellows will learn about symbols on tombstones, the
state of Jewish cemeteries in Poland after Holocaust, efforts to
preserve them, and what lessons can be gleaned to inform our own life
choices today.

Throughout the 10-day experience, >from June 12-June 20, Fellows will
have an opportunity to visit many Jewish heritage sites including
Warsaw and Lublin, spend an inspirational Shabbat in Krakow, and visit
Auschwitz/Birkenau. The group will then spend time in Krzepice,
Poland, where they will participate in the clean-up and preservation
of the Jewish cemetery in partnership with the local high school.
(Krzepice is about 25 kilometers west of Czestochowa.)

The trip will be led by highly experienced staff (including Avraham
Groll, Dan Oren, and Steven D. Reece), and participants will have an
opportunity to learn >from rabbis, scholars, dignitaries, and community
leaders, who will offer first-hand insights regarding the imperative
(and challenges) of cleaning-up cemeteries in accordance with Jewish
law. They will address how local Polish communities view Jewish
cemeteries in their towns, the need to preserve Jewish memory, and
more.

Upon returning home, each Fellow will write an essay reflecting on his
or her experience. These essays will be made available on the
JewishGen website.

Please be sure to follow our JewishGen Fellows, and check our Facebook
page often for profiles of the Fellows, ongoing updates, photos,
live-streams, and more!

Searching for KOENIGSBERG Yeshiva in Palestine ~1910 #rabbinic

GMarcus <ghmarcus@...>
 

According to family lore, one ancestor, Chaim Avraham (or Avrum)
KOENIGSBERG (or KENIGSBERG) migrated >from Dvinsk (now Daugavpils,
Latvia) to Palestine in the early 20th century and established a
yeshiva in Palestine. I am trying to see if I can trace down any
information about the yeshiva.

I do not know the name or the location, although family members
speculate it was Jerusalem. I believe he moved to Palestine around
1904, and I know that he died around 1917.

Is there listing of yeshivas in Palestine during that period that
might have the names of the founders? I'd welcome any information --
name, location, dates of operation, other founders.

Thanks,
G Marcus

SILVERMAN family #ukraine

Joan
 

Hi,

I am very new to this mailing group and have recently (I think) found where
my paternal grandfather is from. His naturalization papers say Kovel,
Russia. After doing some research on Jewish Gen, I found the Jews of Kovel
were wiped out. My grandfather immigrated in either 1902 or 1903 and was
born about 1885. His name is Jacob Benjamin SILVERMAN. I guess I just
wanted to put this info out there to this mailing group, and ask if there
would be any records prior to 1885. I believe this town was in the city of
Volyn.

Thank you
