The end of the Julian Calendar, 100 years ago #romania

marcel glaskie <marcelg@...>
 

An important date in Genealogical History - The end of the Julian Calendar,
100 years ago.
On the 31st March 1919, Romania officially changed its calendar >from the
Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar. As a result, the date on the
following day became 14th of April 1919.
The result, thirteen day were lost in the Civil record books.
Be aware that before the 31st March 1919 all dates in Romania, in Civil
records and on grave stones were in the Julian calendar.
I believe that the reason that many immigrants to western Europe and the
Americas said that they were not sure when they were born, was because they
knew that the calendar had changed, but were confused and not certain on how
to calculate their date of birth to the new Gregorian calendar, if to add or
deduct the 13 missing days.
For those researchers who want to calculate between the three calendars,
Hebrew, Julian and Gregorian, use this very useful link:

Re: Yachsin, certificator of family trees ? #general

David Lewin
 

Transliteration of Hebrew always gives problems but thanks to the
fundamental Hebrew rule of word **roots** one can see what is meant to be seen:

Yod Chet Samech = Yachas = Relationship

The intended word here was Yi'chu'sin = the family relationships between people

I have a family tree of the kind which had the leaves written in with
individual names. It was written in Germany in 1842 and it was
called "Yichesbrief" = a "letter" showing the family relationships

While reading the novel "Just Revenge" by well known academic Alan M.
Dershowitz I found with surprise the mention of an official tracer of
family trees " who certified the bona fide of the claims made by
families concerning their rabbinical lineage". This profession in
Vilna, Lithuania was called a Yachsin.

I had never heard before of this as a way of tracing Jewish ancestors
as, for instance, that the first page of Siddurs were used to keep
family records.

The word yachsin shows no related results in Google.

Can someone illustrate on the profession of yachsin, where was it
usual, at what time in history it happened and any additional info ?

Thanks in advance.

Note: page 34 in the 2000 paperback edition.

ViewMate - Translation from Polish #general

Allison Rosenthal <allisondkr@...>
 

I would love a translation of the birth record which is on viewdata in
2 parts. I would like to find out if this Abraham Roth (the father)
is the same Abraham Roth who was married to Ronie Meschlick and had
several children.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM71104

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM71105

My father recalled that his great grandmother was married twice -
first to Abraham Roth and then to Jacob Zeisel. He thought there were
12-13 children >from the 2 marriages. My dad knew about 6 of them. I
am wondering if there were 3 marriages -

1. Abraham Roth to Dwora Meschlick,
2. Abraham Roth to Ronie Meschlick; and
3. Ronie Meschlick Roth to Jacob Zeisel

and some of those 12-13 children were Abraham and Dwora's children
(who appear to have died).

I also would like to know if Dwora Meschlick Roth and Ronie Meschlick
Roth were sisters or related. I am also trying to figure out if all
the Meschlick's of Jarczowce are related.

I have found both Dwora and Abraham's death records.

Thank you so much!
