Samuel SELIGMAN from Stuttgart #germany

joelle meyer <joelle.meyer24@...>
 

Hello

I have ancestors >from Furth named STUTTGARTER and STETTEN. Thanks to the
help of various people, I have received /found a lot of information on those
two lines of ancestors.

On the STUTTGARTER side, my ancestor Isaac STUTTGARTER was born in
Stuttgart in 1800. His father was Samuel Seligman (STUTTGARTER) born
in Stuttgart in 1771. His father was named Isaac. They moved to
Furth where they were jewelers and as far as I understand Isaac
became the head of the community of Furth.

Mr Hoffman was someone to help me and believes that around 1795 Samuel
Seligmann was accepted as Court Jew in Stuttgart by the Duke of
W=FCrttemberg.

I have ordered the document appointing him as a court Jew >from the
archives.
The 1804 directory shows him as "Hofjud (Court Jew) Seligmann.

If I am writing today it is because I cannot read the document which is
written in Old German and comprises various documents/letters.
If someone would have some time to read it and tell me if there is
anything of interest on my family I would be happy to forward the
document. I have learned that only a few jews were authorized to
live in Stuttgart in the 18 the century and there was a very prominent
family there : thecSELIGMANN and the KAULA.
I was wondering whether my ancestor Samuel Seligman would be
related to the SELIGMANN family
I can provide more information if anyone is interested.

Best regards, Joelle Meyer in France Joelle.meyer24@...

Trying to find further details re Egon LUSTIG, born in Petershoven in 1882. #germany

Hello,

I am hoping to make contact with descendants of Egon Lustig, who was born
in Petershoven in 1882 and who was a passenger on the ill-fated St. Louis.

His wife Elsa/Else, nee Nelson, was also a passenger. They both died in
Auschwitz.

I am trying to determine if this is the same Egon Lustig who was previously
married to an Erna nee Grunwald; she died in 1934.

Thank you.

Detailed descendancy tree of Reb. Chaim of Volozhin #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

According to a note written by a great uncle of mine, his mother's mother was a
descendant of Reb. Chaim of Volozhin or at least >from his extended family.

My great grandmother was Bracha SCHECHTER (KANTOR). She and her three
siblings, including well known Chaim Dov KANTOR of Moshav Shfeya,
Israel, came to Israel in the 1870s >from Pinsk. Supposedly the
connection was through Bracha's mother's mother.

My uncle also wrote that as their (I' presume that "their" means brach's maternal
grandparents) parents died at a young age, Reb' Itzaleh, Reb' Chaim of Volozhin's
son took them to their chupa(wedding canopy) . Looking through books on the
Volozhin family I find no one named or married to a KANTOR but a daughter (Married
to LANDAU) of Reb. Itzaleh did pass away leaving young unmarried orphans.

As stated above, I've seen several published tree of descendants of
Reb. Chaim. Does anyone have a more detailed listof his descendants
where a KANTOR family is mentioned?

MEISTROFF/MEISTROVSKY brick wall #general

Felissa Lashley
 

Hello all. My paternal grandfather, Nathan DORBIN/DROBITSKY/DRUBITSKY
from the Cherkassy area of the Ukraine had a nephew named Sol
MEISTROFF. Sol's mother was my grandfathers sister, Malke. In what we
know of the family, there is a note that she might have married Aaron
SATLOFF/SATLOW. However that does not explain the MEISTROFF name.

Sol MEISTROFF lived in Lincoln Nebraska and St. Joseph Missouri after
coming to the U.S. I remember him very fondly in this American Legion
garb with a cane after serving in WW I. I can find records of his
troop movements but nothing as to his fathers name or any siblings.

I simply do not know where to turn next. His tombstone does not have
any information. I would so appreciate any assistance.
Thank you very much.

Re: Prime Minister of Moldova Pavel Philip demanded a plan to restore the Jewish cemetery in Kishinev! #bessarabia

Dear Researchers,

I am not sure if you get this email, but I want you to know the situation at the Jewish Cemetery in
Kishinev, Bessarabia/Moldova.

You remember the story that the Prime Minister of Moldova "...demanded a plan to restore the
Jewish cemetery in Kishinev", and I should tell you that there are good news, but also very bad
news >from that cemetery:

The cemetery was cleaned up in the fall of 2018, and you can see >from a photo how large is
the cemetery, and as people on the ground are saying, it was cleaned up.

Aerial view:

http://tinyurl.com/yydk49q8

The bad news are that a number of tombstones were damaged.

http://tinyurl.com/y4ga9beh

http://tinyurl.com/y3dr4cca

Now, I am getting information that there will be no construction of a new building at the cemetery
(museum or so), but there is going to be build a memorial probably to the victims of the Holocaust...

If you have issues seeing the images, or questions, please email me at mailto:yefimk@...

Galicia I course begins April 1 #ukraine

Phyllis Kramer
 

Did you have ancestors >from Galicia? Would you like to understand the
resources for researching them? This two part course is designed for
those relatively new to Galician research, but know the town of
origin. We begin with online town sources, continue with surname
research via vital records using four major websites: Routes to Roots,
JRI-Poland, Gesher
Galicia and JewishGen; advanced students may continue by researching
directly in the Polish archives websites.

We will focus on developing a methodology for foreign research,
including: (1) the Family Document containing all the necessary
information about your family branch, (2) the Research Table of where
you've searched, (3) Your ToDo list, (4) contact list of who is researching your
surname or shtetl, and (5) a descriptive paragraph to connect with
fellow researchers and professionals.

Course Material will include an
online, downloadable textbook. Please note: We do not research US or
UK records; you need to
know the immigrants name and town >from prior research.
Galicia II (2020)will cover the historical background, the Polish
Archives, over 50 different source websites
(census, military, directories etc), Holocaust, languages, hiring a
researcher and more!

This is a personal mentoring program (unique to JewishGen education)
which features an online FORUM where you'll be encouraged to post one
ancestral branch (one surname), set goals for your research, and work
one-on-one with the instructor to research vital records for your
branch and ask your
questions. Our classes have no scheduled times as our students are
international, enabling everyone to read/view/post at leisure.

It is imperative that you read the full description at
https://www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40144, then
please ask any question. Registration is open to 15 students.
