Rabbi Meyer LIPSCHUTZ / LIPSCHITZ #rabbinic

Richard Gilbert
 

Dear Genners,

My wife's 2 x Great Grandfather was Rabbi Meyer LIPSCHUTZ or
LIPSCHITZ. He is supposed to have been a rabbi in Kaunas,
Lithuania. We are interested in finding out more about him and
should appreciate any advice that any of you might have as to how we
can do that. He was possibly born circa 1860 and died about 1910.
As far as we are aware, he never left Lithuania and his descendants
now live in England and the USA. We have checked the JewishGen
website and could find no reference to him.

Many thanks,

Richard Gilbert

Umlaut sensitivity - {was: Interesting Quirk in Prague Police Conscription DataBase} #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Paul King >from Jerusalem wrote: "The Prague Police Conscription site (1850-1914): http://digi.nacr.cz/prihlasky2/indexen.php

allows for the entry of three variables in finding
information about a
person or family. These variables are:
1) surname
2) first name
3) year of birth

To my great surprise, after not disclosing expected relatives
when I entered the surname, I discovered that by entering a
first name and a date of birth only, the family data appeared.
Not only did one family record appear once; it has three separate records..... I can't account for the quirk."

The answer is quite easy: the site is umlaut sensitive - thus try
LOWY with an umlaut and without - you will be surprised. Paul's
family name also had an umlaut "O" and if you enter it with an umlaut,
all the missing records appear. Apparently, sometimes the names were
entered into the database with the umlaut and other times without.

So now we know - we have to check *both* alternatives to bring
up *all* records. We live and learn >from experience.

Vienna Death Record #austria-czech

Sharon & Peter Haas <haases@...>
 

I recently received a xerox copy of a multi-column death record >from Vienna.
It provides some of the specifics of the death of my maternal ggf (Josef
FALEK). Unfortunately the column headings were missing. The entry in the
first column of my ggf's record, however was "43/45", as shown below. I
would suspect that these numbers mark the "entry number" or something
similar.

Am wondering, however, why there are two numbers (43 over 45). All other
entries on the page that I'm looking at, also have two numbers -- e.g.,
40/42 or 38/40. As a matter of fact one of the entries shares a number with
the one that is of interest to me. That number being 41/43.... Two
different line entries having the number 43 in common. Anyone have any
idea?

43/45, 1879
Date of death: March 11th, 1879, 5 a.m.
Date of burrial: March 13th, 1879, 10 a.m.
Name: Josef FALEK, born in Dombrowa, Galicia
Gender: male
Age: 34 years
Address: died in hospital, burried in Vienna
Reason: bladder trouble (cistitis)

Time, Date and Venue: 7.30pm, 16th October, 2008 - Spiro Arts Centre.
25-26 Enford Street W1H 1DW see www.spiroark.org - but I cannot
find the programme on the website yet. Tel: 020-7723-9991

Pavel Haas: Six Moravian Folk Tunes Opus 1
Antonin Tucapsky: Folk tunes >from Bohemia, Moravia, Silesia
and Slovakia
Charles Heller - The Trial of Leopold Hilsner - UK premiere

Pianist: Petr Vasicek - Soprano: Marta Vavrova

Charles Heller is a descendant of the HELLER family of Polna,
Bohemia who can be clearly seen in the 1793 census. In 1899 a
Christian girl was murdered in Polna and a Jew by the name of
HILSNER was accused in a blood libel case. He was sentenced to death
but international outrage and intervention by Tomas Masaryk saved
his life: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilsner_Trial

Charles is a composer who has studied this case. He was a music
teacher and music director at a Toronto Synagogue. Unfortunately he
will not be at the concert. He wrote to me "Yes, the Hellers lived
in Polna >from about the 1600s. I have traced my family back to about
1700. Some of them were "Richtar Zidovsky". My grandfather
Siegfried was responsible for HILSNER when his mother was
unable to look after him. After he was released >from jail in 1918,
HILSNER changed his name to HELLER. My grandfather died in 1903 but
my grandmother Bozena died in 1942 before the Nazis came to take away
the last few Jews there. My father Otto came to England in 1939.
I was born in London in 1946.

Here is the grave of Leopold HILSNER in Vienna:

Zentralfriedhof IV. TOR 10a 7 8
HELLER (HILSNER} Leopold aged 51 died 08.01.1928 buried 11.01.1928

I shall make a special point of going there when next in Vienna and tidying it up.

Report on ROM-SIG in Chicago! #romania

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

Dear Fellow ROM-SIGgers,

It was good to see so many of you in Chicago! I hope that you enjoyed
our sessions as much as I. For those of you who were unable to join
with us here is a report on our meetings!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
First of all, here is the report and information that I was able to
share, with thanks to our fantastic Research coordinator, who maintains
all of the records, Bob Wascou:

_*Update on Iasi Cemetery records:*

_The project is moving along quite well.

- Men's records 1939-1966 are online.
- Men's records 1915-1946 are now complete, and should be coming online
in a few weeks.
- Men's records 1883-1887, in Hebrew, are now complete, and should also
be coming online shortly.

- Women's records - 1915-1943 have just been started, and should be
completed by year end, or beginning of next year.
- Women's records - 1939-1966 are about halfway finished, and should
also be completed by year's end, or beginning of next.
- Women's records - 1888 Hebrew records are near completion, and Jan.
1889 just received.

Work is almost completed on the first of 6 volumes of Hebrew records!
Two pages of April 1887 are missing and the photographer has been
contacted to get copies of those.

Our deepest gratitude goes to our member, Dr. Reuven Singer, whose
generous gift has made the acquisition of these records possible!

An update on Vital records will be going to JewishGen shortly. It
will consist of:

Iasi births - Full records : 1841,1842,1844,1847,1848,1873,1901
Iasi Marriages - Full records: 1887 & 1900; Marriage index - 1879-1886
Iasi deaths - Full records: 1884 & 1910

Bendery births - Full records: 1866,1871 7& 1883
Bendery marriages - Full records: 1874
Bendery divorces - Full records: 1890
Beltsy births - Full records: 1846,1858,1902 & 1907
Chimishliya births - Full records: 20 records >from 1883. These records
were attached to records >from Bendery. It is a small town 38 mi. SW of
Bendery, and had a Jewish population of 752 in 1900.

If possible this will also include the Beltsy marriage index, 1879-1886,
and the full birth records for 1848. It is hoped that we can complete
all (13,445) of the Iasi Vital Records that we have by the time of the
Conference next year. Most of the Russian part of the records (11,186)
is complete, but the Hebrew still has to be done. Work will continue on
the records >from Beltsy.

We will be starting a new phase of the Bessarabia projects . We will
be translating Revision and family lists for many places in Bessarabia.
This project will start as soon as we are able to get copies of the
films on CDs >from the Family History Library. Right now they are having
internal problems, and there is a huge backlog of orders that they are
working on. These records will be in Russian only.

All of these projects would move faster if we had more volunteers to
translate! We can still use people who can translate Romanian, old
Russian and Hebrew script. These records are difficult to read. But,
if you are able and willing to help please contact our Research
Coordinator, Bob Wascou, at: <robertw252@...>

Our two sessions with our guest speaker, Natalia Alhazov , were huge
successes! She was an enlightening and entertaining speaker, and the
crowded room responded with gusto! Again a note of thanks to all who
made her trip her possible, and I list them here:
Joe Bein, Nancy Goldberg, Frances Spak, Maury Kitces, Robert Wascou, Ava
Cohn, Yefim Kogan, Mr. & Mis Michael Witkin, Carol Shkolnick and the
Halderstein Owl Fund.

A large round of applause to you all!

sure. Their date of entry had to be prior to 1911. My Grandmother Clara married
Emil Silver in St. Louis where they had my Aunt Mary in 1912. My Grandmother
moved back East and worked as a seamstress. My Mother, Frances, was born in 1918
in Newark. I am trying to get in contact with anyone that might know of my
Grandmother, or Aunts, or who might be Family members that I can get and share

Yizkor Book Report for August 2008 #galicia

Joyce Field
 

In August 2008 the Yizkor Book Project added one new book, two new
entries, and updates to nine books. All additions have been
flagged at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html to make
it easy for researchers to find them. At this site translations are
also listed in four categories: regions, communities, miscellaneous,
and other languages.

New book:

-Lublin, Poland: necrology submitted by Yad Vashem

New entries:

-Kleczew, Poland: Pinkas HaKehillot, Polin, vol. I
-Spisskie Podhradie, Slovakia: Pinkas HaKehillot, Slovakia

Updates:

-Bedzin, Poland
-Belchatow, Poland
-Czestochowa, Poland,
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Czestochowa2/Czestochowa2.html
-Dabrowa Gornicza, Poland
-Dusetos, Lithuania
-Kalarash, Moldova
-Kaluszyn, Poland
-Radzyn Podlaskie, Poland
-Sanok, Poland

Also remember to check the Yizkor Book Database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html, a master
bibliographic database of most published yizkor books and other
books written about particular towns or areas. Another valuable
resource is the necrology index at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/, an index of the names
of persons in the necrologies--the lists of Holocaust martyrs--
published in our translated yizkor books. The necrologies are also
searchable at the Holocaust Database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/.

Please contact me if you are interested in starting a new yizkor
book translation project. Check the Yizkor Book Database to see if
a book has been written about your ancestral town and also check
the listings of articles in the Pinkas HaKehillot to see if there
is an article about your town. These books are listed under
"Regions."
