Re: Possible reasons for immigration #general

Danielle:

At first blush, it appears your maternal grandmother was negligent in
abandoning his son and that she might be partially responsible for her
husband's suicide (was she having an affair?). But as you said, we don't
know what happened. It might have been equally probable your paternal
grandfather was mentally ill and impossible to live with. It's possible we
will never know the truth.

Oral history, as in your family's lore, is a great tool for fact finding
but have you corroborated this story with the records? Regarding US data,
have carefully examined all immigration, naturalization and census records
easily available?

If not, my suggestion is to gather as much information as you can before
pondering any questions.

Best of luck, Danielle!

Yizkor Book Project, December 2010 #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

The JewishGen "elders" tell me that there has never been such a record month
in the Yizkor Book Project with a total of 57 new entries, new books and
updates during December. The year 2010, in fact, was an all-round record
year compared to previous years. More than four times as many new entries
added, twice as many new books added and almost twice as many updates were
carried out in comparison with 2009!

Now, as I always stress, there are many, many people behind these figures
and this month I would like to salute a small group of such people. They are
the remarkable volunteer team of Shaul Yannai, Shimon Joffe & Barry Mann who
are working their way through Pinkas Lita (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities in Lithuania) to translate all the community entries appearing
there. Just this month, we put up translations 28 of the entries about the
Lithuanian communities that were devastated in the Holocaust and the final
goal of this team is to completely translate all the entries within it. This
is clearly a mammoth task and I salute this team's dedication and
persistence. It should also be noted that they are also working closely
with the original editors of this encyclopedia, Dov Levin and Josef Rosin,
to assure that the translations and the information they contain, are as
true as possible to the original - awarding them a further salute.

I would like to inform you about something else new that was added this past
month to the Yizkor Book Project. Thanks to the diligent and time consuming
research work of one volunteer, Paul Levit, a new feature has been added to
the Yizkor Book database at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html A
hyperlink has been added to each Yizkor Book's entry which points to the
OCLC (Online Computer Library Center) website at www.worldcat.org. Since the
WorldCat website contains full bibliographic information for each book,
along with links to thousands of libraries catalogs worldwide. This linkage
will supplement the database's current "Libraries" table, thus allowing
JewishGen users to locate Yizkor Books more easily, wherever they may be. My
thanks also go out to Warren Blatt for the concept behind this and to
Michael Tobias for implementing this feature in the database.

December also has seen the quarterly update of our necrology database with
4,330 new entries >from 10 books. The entries are painstakingly prepared by
Max Heffler and Michael Tobias is behind the uploading of the data to the
database. Thanks to both these gentlemen for allowing researchers access to
this invaluable data source at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

Note that the following community necrologies were added this quarter to the
database:

- Ratno, Ukraine 168
- Frampol, Poland 373
- Kossovo, Belarus 163
- Stolin, Belarus 601
- Bol'shoy Zhëlutsk, Ukraine 81
- Sandomierz, Poland 433
- Novoseltsy, Ukraine 1426
- Melnitsa, Ukraine 781
- Pogost-Zagorodskiy, Belarus 235

Jannie Schenfoggle(b.1835 app.) Annie Schenfoggle (b. 1874 app.) also
they had a border listed as coming >from Mazritz named Woulfe Wiseman

Her father's? Or is it random?

There is some"talk" that our earliest known ancestor Rav Meir HaKohen Katz

His eldest known son was born about 1808 and he and his wife had the last

I noticed that some time ago, Mel Werbach and Yoni Ben-Ari (and
others) posted that they had done some significant research regarding
descendants of
Naftali Katz.

I am interested in this family.

I do not descend >from him, but I am interested in the Gliksman family
that generated both Baruch Bendet Gliksman, Phineas Zelig Gliksman, and
some others. It looks as if one of the early male ancestors of this
family, Jacob Gliksman, married a woman named Glika (perhaps the
origin of the surname? I do not know). She is said to have been one of
eight daughters >from Kolo, and a granddaughter of Naftali Katz [see note
below --Mod.]. She probably died a bit before 1820.

Jacob was born around 1748, and I assume Glika was about the same age .
Therefore, any grandfather (if that is indeed literally correct --
sometimes "neched" is used figuratively) would likely have been born not
much later than 1700, and probably no earlier than 1650. I hope that
makes sense for R. Katz.

Anyway, I would appreciate it if Mel and Yoni could be in touch, as
well as any others who would like to discuss these details with me.

Thank you.

Note [added later by Steve Bloom]: It is actually her father, Meir
(likely born c. 1720) , who was the grandchild of Naftali Katz (birth
date is given differently in different sources, but seems to be c. 1655).
That birth date seems to be consistent for someone his supposedly the gf
of someone born around 1720. I do not know if Katz was Meir's paternal or
maternal grandfather.
