With this fascinating new detail, how common is this surname?
Wolk, Volk, Valach, Walch, Wallega, Bloch, Block are/could all be toponyms
from the Walachia region of present day Romania.
The Germanic word "Whala" describing Celt [or Latin] strangers/foreigners,
can also be found in Wales [Galle in French], Wallonia [French Belgium],
Gallia, etc. <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vlachs>
[cf Galileo Galilei of Pisa ;-) ]

The family-name combination of Cohen with a toponym [to narrow down the
number of Cohens?] in any order, was and is quite common all over Europe.

(US-OK) OK Bill That Requires Marriages to Be Performed By Religious Ordained Persons Passes OK House #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Oklahoma House of Representatives passed a bill that that is now in the
Senate and referred to Senate Rules Committee that eliminates clerks from
issuing marriage licenses and puts issuing marriage licenses solely in the
hands of judges or ordained recognized religious persons - preacher,
minister, priest, rabbi, or ecclesiastical dignitary who is a resident of
the state.

As originally introduced, the bill did not permit judges to be permitted to
issue the marriage certificates--therefore no civil marriages would have
been permitted. The bill will permit common law marriages. Court clerks will
no longer issue marriage licenses but they will record them. The religious
officiant would issue the marriage license.

There are many details that are not covered in the bill making it unclear as
to how this bill - if it is signed into law - would record marriage licenses
under the law or how one would access the marriage records in the future. The
original bill omitted by name certain religions that may be covered under the
amended versions "catchall phrase" of "the assemblies which have no ordained
minister." This is the same state the enacted legislation several years ago
which permits only the deceased to obtain their death certificate.

Essays on Jewish life in Romania #romania

Jewish Life In Roumania/Modavia

The Schwarzfeld family (father Benjamin and sons Elias, Wilhelm and
Moses) lived in Iasi in the 19th century and wrote a number of
histories, novels, essays, and other articles on Jews and Roumania
[much on Moldavia]. An English version of Elias Schwarzfeld's well
known history on Jews in Roumania appeared in the AJY 1901-02 and is
bookmarked on my Botosani website at Kehilalinks. His novels have not
been translated to English but many are available on Google Books and
Google can also translate >from Romanian. I have also included other
references related to Jews in Romania and welcome any further
additions.

Kiliya Jewish Cemetery (Bessarabia, currently in Ukraine, Odessa Oblast) #ukraine

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear researchers,

A group of people with Ariel Parkansky as a Project Leader are working on
indexing Kiliya Jewish Cemetery. Unfortunately there are many inscriptions
which are missing >from the tombstone or writings are impossible to decipher.
Especially damaged are the writings of the old graves >from end of 19
century, beginning of 20 century.

I am doing the "second" reading and found 10 inscriptions which I hope we
might decipher, some of them are in Russian, a few are in Hebrew.

Instead of putting them at ViewMate I decided to use dropbox. Here is a
link to 10 such images.
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/mif1wpo5udblt5l/AADWoz2SXzY-HYvNTxq_5rjNa?dl=0
Please find 10 images and a table where to put information.

Most of the images will require an image improvement, and I know that many
of our members can do that.

I only worked on half of images, next week I will put more into the same
locations.

I hope that you can help with this job. If you can read even one of the
writings, please put information into the table and send back to me.

Happy Passover,

non-essential businesses in Israel, is closed for all but emergencies. I

can.

outstanding activist and orator. He will bring a message to genealogists

be speaking at the closing Banquet. In the mid-1980s, at the dawn of the
World Wide Web, Eastman pioneered one of the first online Genealogy
Forums. By 1996, he created a weekly online newsletter called "Eastman's

Yizkor Book Project, March 2015 #belarus

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I'm sure this finds you in some way or another, getting yourself
ready for the Pesach/Passover holiday. And speaking of Pesach,
although the Yizkor Book Project hasn't hidden an "affikoman" for
you to find, we do have some token gifts to present to you which
were supplied by some very wonderful people over this past month.

- The first "gift" is for those of you with family roots in
Yugoslavia. Judy Petersen has prepared an index of all the names
appearing in the Pinkas Hakehillot (Encyclopedia of the Jewish
Diaspora) for Yugoslavia and I'm sure you'll find list as an
excellent research tool. - The second "gift" is a complete online
book in pdf format - "War Criminal on Trial" by which was written
by Sol Littman. For those of you interested in purchasing a hard
copy of the same, please go to the Yizkor Books in Print link at
the end of this message to obtain more details. - The third "gift"
is a complete translation into English of the Hebrew articles in
the Eisiskes, Lithuania Yizkor book and for this we have to thank
Kenneth Juris for this donation and Judy Baston for her editing
and initiative.
- The fourth "gift" is the Nowy Zmigrod Yizkor book which was
compiled by William Leibner and is now completely online.
- The fifth "gifts" are >from Susan Dressler, Genia Hollander &
Helen Rosenstein Wolf who have been tirelessly typing up English
sections >from various Yizkor books, this past month and for many
months previous, allowing us to place these articles online for
the benefit of all. - The last (or are they?) "gifts" are further
translations into Hebrew of the Yiddish sections >from three
Ukrainian Yizkor books prepared by Esther Weinschelbaum, so that
there are now eight of these Yiddish-to-Hebrew translations >from
Ukrainian Yizkor books now made available online.

Other than that, all the additions to the Yizkor Book Project,
great or small, continue on each day of the year and to all of
those involved in the YB Project and to you dear reader, I would
like to wish all a very memorable, warm and gastronomically
excellent seder and a wonderful Pesach holiday, in general.

Who could leave Austria between 1938-1940 #austria-czech

Tony Hausner
 

Just saw Woman in Gold. Very glad to see it.

One of the questions it raised was which families were and were not able to leave Austria
after the Anschluss. I understand that sometime in 1939 or 1940 that the door closed
altogether. yet my mother, and both set of grandparents. were able to leave after the
Anschluss. My great uncle and his family were ones of the last ones to leave. They had
trouble leaving but finally were able. Wealth was not a factor as not all of my family had
wealth, some did and some did not.

In the movie, it showed that Maria Altmann's parents were not able to leave.

My wife and I were very glad that we saw and very much appreciated the movie.
It was very meaningful to see restitution. So glad that Randy and Maria persevered with
the case and that the Austrians lost. It was also very important to see that some
Austrians supported the case. As my parents and grandparents all had the fortune to
escape Vienna after the Anschluss, the film was quite moving for us. Unfortunately
family such as those living in Galicia did not survive.


We also think Mirren and Reynolds gave wonderful performances. However, Ryan is not
as good looking as Randy. Glad to see such an important victory.


On another note, I just tried sending an email to Erich Wolf Eckstein at the following
email and got an error message w.eckstein@ikg-wien.at

time and place?

Thank you,

Vienna marriages #austria-czech

danielat1@...
 

All Jewish marriages were registered by the Jewish Community of Vienna.
Their records are available >from the Jewish Community today. Email them and
ask for the information. You can find them via Google or any other search
engine. You can write in English. Alternatively you can also ask the City of
Vienna archives for same information. They hold copies of all Jewish
records- well pretty nearly all of them. Again find them via Google and
write in English and they will reply in German most likely.
