Chicago Jewish Press - Lusitania 1915 #general

I agree with Jeremy G. Frankel that "The Sentinel" was one of the Jewish
newspapers published in Chicago in 1915. In addition, the "Advocate" (voice of
Reform Jewry) was also published. If you look in my Infofile "Guide to Jewish
Genealogy in Chicagoland" at www.JewishGen.org/Infofiles/Chicago you can find
more info by clicking on "Life in Jewish Chicago" under Types of Records.

Both of these publications are in the library of the Spertus Institute for
Jewish Studies (in Chicago). You can e-mail them at asherlib@... .

My step grandmother was lost on the Lusitania May 8 1915 after visiting her
son in Chicago

I am in London UK and checked our Newspaper library - I found reports in the
Chicago dailies but the only Jewish newspaper was in Yiddish which I could
not
read.

Was there a Jewish journal published in Chicago 1915 in English ?

Thanks

FULD from Frankfurt/Germany #general

sunka@...
 

Hello All,

I am searching for descendants of Leopold FULD and his sons Herman,
Adolf or Gustav Fuld. Leopold was the grandfather of Ruth Avital who
lives now in Israel. Her mothers name was Rahel FULD, born 1915 in
Frankfurt/Germany and who died in 1950 and was the sister of Herman,
Adolf and Gustav and had also a sister.Ruth Avital knows nothing about
her family because of the early death of her mother and would love to
get in contact. She only recalls the names of her uncles and that
they might live in the USA today.

If you are a relative or if you have information about this Fuld
family, it is highly appreciated if you would answer my inquiry.

Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

Anja Listmann

The name VAN PRAAG #general

Irene Levita <mimosa@...>
 

My ancestor Jesaias Mozes VAN PRAAG, born 1794, died 1858. his
daughters were Sara Moses VAN PRAAG, born 1828, married Meyer Manes
VAN LEEUWEN, born 1830, both >from Amsterdam.
Judic VAN PRAAG, born December 1819, died March 1887, married Abraham
Levie Peekel, born December 27, 1819.
My question is, would it be logical to presume that the name VAN PRAAG,
is due because the family originally came >from the city of Prague?
If anyone has more information about this family, I would be very
grateful.

Some more professions in Vienna #austria-czech

Florence & Henry Wellisch <kelwel@...>
 

In the Vienna list of births and marriages 1784 -1848 I found some more
Jewish inhabitants with professions, where I can use some help. Here they
are:
Pfeifenbeschlagergeselle (Umlaut a) (I know what a Geselle is)
Schriftsetzer in der Aerarialsbuchdruckerei (I think the word Aerar means
government or state)
Similarwarenerzeuger
Curranthandler (Umlaut at 2nd a)

I do understand the following, but they sound interesting:
Kommerzialguterbeforderer (Umlaut at u and at 2nd o) und Landkutscher
Reisender Huhneraugenarzt (Umlaut at u)
Munzlieferant (Umlaut at u)
Schriftgiesserfaktor
Skontist

Shraga Feivish #rabbinic

Lainey Melnick <lmelnick@...>
 

I've traced one of my lines to Shrage Feivish HOFFING b. 1877. His
son, Eliezer, was born 9/20/1894 in Politsh, Ukraine. I've noticed
the name Shraga Feivish in rabbinical posts and was wondering if
this was a common name or if it's likely there's a relationship to
a rabbi by this name?

Thanks,

Several years ago, Jewishgenner Anita Citron formed a group for researching
records in Odessa. There is no cost to join the group nor to read the old
messages sent in. See:

http://archiver.rootsweb.com/th/index/ODESSA-UKRAINE/

A great many people participated in hiring an archivist who looked up their
family names at a relatively reasonable cost. There was at first a long
waiting line but eventually most participants, including me, received information
from the archivist. New people have been writing in to ask for research help.
The Odessa group is located at Rootsweb:

http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/intl/UKR/ODESSA-UKRAINE.html

and those interested in subscribing can do so >from this web address.

For more information as to what range of documents are accessible to the
particular archivist who was used, write to Anita Citron.

Please note that the archivist we used can do research ONLY for the city of
Odessa,(records up to 1922) NOT for any towns near Odessa or within the Kherson
gubernya. Also, note that our archivist does NOT have access to what is known
as the ZAGS archives which are housed in another building. The ZAGs archives
contain later records, which are very costly to obtain and probably would
require the services of someone hired at the personal expense of the inquirer.
It is my understanding that whatever the price is for Odessa's ZAGS records is
not negotiable. I do not know of anyone who has found a researcher to look
up ZAGS records for their family. ("ZAGS" are local vital records.) But for
finding family members after 1922 HIAS may help.

Some of the books of the I found useful for learning about Odessa are:

Patricia Herlihy, "Odessa: A History 1794-1914, Harvard University Press, 1986

"Odessa Memories" University of Washington Press, 2003 (contains several
articles, and reproduces many postcards and advertisements, has a bibliography
and an index showing the names of many Jewish inhabitants.)

Steven J. Zipperstein, "The Jews of Odessa: A Cultural History, 1794-1881,"
Stanford University Press, 1991

Steven J. Zipperstein, "Remapping Odessa," in his collection "Imagining
Russian Jewry," University of Washington Press,1999

Robert Weinberg, "The Revolution of 1905 in Odessa:Blood on the Steps,"
Indiana University Press, 1993

and, of course, Isaac Babel's stories about Odessa.

pooling resources vs shtetlsites #ukraine

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

These aren't exactly the same.
I have 4 shtetl sites and while building them, I have develped a
distribution list for each one.
But we have not funded researching but rather gather what we can >from among
us. In fact many of the people on my distribution lists are family (not on
any of JewishGen's SIGs) or people I have gathered >from the other parts of
JewisGen and again not necessarily active on the SIG. Yet - they often have
pictures and documents and stories.
As to pooling resources, I think it is a great idea, just I am just not sure
how much can be found in the Ukraine. Sorry to be a wet rag. For example, I
just transcribed the donators for the printing of a book in 1897. Most of
the people were listed by their first name only and town. Also in the
Central ARchives for the History of the Jewish People, there are microfilms
of all sorts of things, but you have to know russian to go through the
catalogue (not online) not matter what language the document is in.
I am writing this just to remind that there are materials that can be
"saved" yet among descendants before they get lost in moving etc. One of the
things is to keep nudging these people to scan or photograph what they have.
They are so lazy. Just want to get and not give. They don't realize how much
this can mean to others.
