Descendants in Canada of the Levertov family of Sanok and Cracow #rabbinic

Neil@...
 

Trying to make contact with descendants of Esther who married Pinchas
Joseph Szapira in 192. She was a daughter of Rabbi Menachem Nachum
Efraim Levertov and his wife Freida of the Klingberg family.
Esther's daughter was Freida (unknown surname) who remained on in
Poland after WWII because of her husband's elderly mother. Some of her
children immigrated to Canada.

Which Rabbinic Dynasty Is This? #rabbinic

Adam Cherson
 

Dear Rabbinic Researchers,

I have just encountered a matzeva >from a 19th century cemetery in
Dieveniskes, Lithuania that I would like to consult with this group.

Here is the inscription:

"Here rests the descendant of rabbinic dynasty, famous
and learned Eliyahu, son of the learned Meir Yosef.
[His soul ascended] on the holy Shabbat in the year
5606, 3rd of Shvat (January 30, 1856).
May his soul be tied into the knot of life."

I wonder if someone with far greater knowledge of Ashkenazi Rabbinical
History might be able to identify the dynasty referred to here.

Thanks in Advance,
Adam Cherson

Altschottland familienbuch 1850-1879 has been transcribed, needs proofreading #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

The Altschottland familienbuch for 1850-1879 (CAHJP file Da/1156),
containing significant genealogical information about 1072 people, has
been fully transcribed and now needs proofreading before it can be
added to the searchable Danzig Database, part of JewishGen's Germany
and Poland Databases. The writing is very legible, about 90% normal
German and 10% Kurrent-style. I estimate proofreading will take 5-6
hours. If you are interested in working on this or any other Danzig
volunteer project, please email me. We currently have seven active
volunteer transcribers/proofreaders, but definitely need more to
handle a backlog of not-yet-proofread data and new sources (e.g., the
recently announced 1874-1914 marriages project).

The Altschottland familienbuch is grouped by family and typically
lists the head of the household; his wife and her maiden name; their
children, with dates of birth; dates of death (if during 1850-1879);
names of daughters' husbands (if married during 1850-1879), often with
dates and places of marriage; and places where family members moved
to. The children's birth dates can be as early as 1810, so this
captures information far beyond the dates during which it was written.

If your family lived in Danzig during this time, but does not appear
in the Altschottland familienbuch, it probably means the family was a
member of one of the other pre-unification communities: Langfuhr,
Weinberg, Mattenbuden, or Danzig-Breitgasse.

Note that we earlier transcribed the separate Altschottland
familienbuch for 1880-1882 (CAHJP file Da/596), which also needs
proofreading.

Reminder: we will have a SIG meeting in Warsaw on Monday, August 6,
1:30-2:30 PM, in Katowice-Boardroom. Please let me know if you might
attend.

Three viewmates online - # 68675 is on-line #germany

Lin Herz <lin2@...>
 

Hi GerSig Friends,

I've posted three German documents. I recently received >from Mom's
first cousin some papers about my great grandfather that she's
been promising me since 2011.

I'm not sure of the order of these three, because she can't read
any more than I can. I'd like full translations of each one and
to know what they are. These are family treasures. These are about
my great grandfather Abraham BUEHLER >from Kleinerdlingen and later
Noerdlingen. I know they are one now. He was born in 1859. In 1865
or so, when his father, Jakob BUEHLER died, he went to the orphanage
in Fuerth both to live and receive a good education. His mother,
Jette ROSENBERGER BUEHLER could not afford to take care of the youngest
children. After he graduated and left the orphanage in 1873, family
story says he was apprenticed as a leather dealer. He did for sure
became a leather dealer in Noerdlingen and maybe Kleinerdlingen before
that. He married Bertha ADLER rom Markelsheim in 1889.
Please let me know if you need any more information. These documents
are treasures to me. Suse thought one is about his internship and
one is about his first job as a leather dealer, but she can't read them.
These are the urls:

Thank you >from the bottom of my heart in advance for translating these
documents.
