19th Century Epidemics #general

Debbie Lifshitz
 

Howie Rotblatt asked:
"I was wondering if anyone is aware of any records or research done
regarding time frames of pogroms or epidemics in 19th century Poland,
or more specifically in Piotrkow Trybunalski, Poland in 1872."

There have been seven Cholera pandemics, the last still on-going.
Almost all originated in the Indian subcontinent. The 4th pandemic
began in 1863 and ran till 1879. The cholera hit Russia, Rumania,
Bulgaria, Galitzia and Prussia between 1870 and 1873.

There was also, almost concurrently, a smallpox epidemic in Europe,
1870-1875, a direct result of the Franco-Prussian War of 1870. Some
countries like England, Scotland, Sweden and Bavaria already had
compulsory vaccination programs and had lighter casualties. Countries
like Prussia, Austria and Belgium did not (and Russia , ofcourse).
There were 500,000 victims of this epidemic.

Your dates fall in this period, so this is where I'd suggest you
start looking.

You have hit on an area of research that has been insufficiently
touched : the interface between medical history and Jewish Genealogy.

There is no indication either in the Encyclopedia of Jewish Life, or
in the Jewish Encyclopedia of any Pogrom in Piotrokow at that period.

Briceni cemetery #general

IRWIN WOLFE
 

Does anyone plan to visit the Jewish cemetery at Briceni, Moldova?

If so, I'd appreciate a photo of my grandfather's grave. I have a couple
of photos of the gravestone which were taken in 1936. I can supply you
with copies to make identification easier.

Seeking: Joseph JOSEPHS #general

Doug Burrows
 

Hello Everyone,
My name is Doug Burrows and I live in Perth, Western Australia.
My paternal grandmothers name was Esther Josephs and her family
migrated to Australia in 1852 >from Liverpool in England on a ship
called the Constance.
I wish to be able to trace my Jewish ancestry back as far as I can
to find out where the family originated from, if possible.
What I do know is that my great, great, great grandfathers name
was Joseph JOSEPHS and he would have been born around the 1750s.
He married a lady named Sarah Wilks and one of their sons was my great,
great grandfather who was also named Joseph Josephs and he was born in
1793 in London.

Obviously to avoid persecution, this second Joseph called himself Joseph
Wilks, using his mothers surname. He was a jeweller and he moved to
Liverpool, where he met and married a lady named Eliza Radley and they
had 9 children, the fourth of which was also named Joseph.
This child was my great grandfather and the father of Esther. He was
born in 1840, or 1841.

This third Joseph was the only member of his generation who used his
Jewish name Joseph Josephs and his first child, my grandmother,
Esther likewise was the only member of her generation who used her
Jewish surname.

This Joseph married Caroline Martha Anderson in Victoria in 1870 and
Esther was born in 1871 in the town of Stawell. Esthers family moved to
the New South Wales town of Hay in the 1880s and Esther eventually met and
married my grandfather, James Burrows.

I am seeking more information about the first three generations of
Joseph Josephs and hoping to learn how and when they moved to England
and where they moved >from to go there.

If anyone is able to help, I would be most appreciative.
Cheers to all
Doug Burrows
