MENDEL(S)SOHN's who lived in Warszawa in 1870 #general

Mendelssohn <mendelssohn@...>
 

I recently learned (thanks to Hadassah Lipsius!!!) that:
"The 1870 Warszawa Business Directory shows many MENDELSOHN's including the
following given names:

Ber, Berek, Dawid, Eljasz, Emanuel, Gerszon, Hersz, Jakier, Jankiel,
Lejzer, Majer, Mendel, Moszek, Wolf and Perla."

Emanuel Mendelsohn was my gggrandfather (born aroud 1820,corntraider,married
to Paulina Szulcman,7 children) and other Mendelsohn's >from this list may
have been relatives: that's why any information on them would be very
appreciated!
According to JRI-Poland's datas:
-Jakier would be born in 1828 and had married Mindla Finkelszteijn;
-Wolf would be born in 1822.
Maybe brothers or cousins???
Thanks in advance for any help concerning these given names!

At Steve Rosen's request, I've translated the chapter headings for
the book "Secrets of Berdichev." The book focuses on the community as
a whole rather than on individuals. While some names appear in the
book, they're very hard to identify by scanning because names aren't
capitalized in Yiddish.

KALISCHER/RASCHKOWSKY/SMITH Family #general

BSmith1311 <bsmith1311@...>
 

I am researching the Kalischer family (one of many spellings); the
Kalischers are relatives on my father's side. Simon Kalischer (born about
1831, Germany/Poland/Prussia) came to New York City before 1856. Simon had a
sister Rachael who was supposedly born in Germany in 1841. Simon's wife was
Minnie Honig (born about 1831, Germany/Prussia). Children: Aaron (born 1856,
New York City), Morris (born 1858, New York City), William (born 1862, New
York City), and Alexander (born 1872, New York City). Simon may have had
many brothers (familial names seem to be Edwin, Adolph, Meyer, Morris, and
Sol) and at least one sister named Rachael (born 1841, Germany). Simon was a
capmaker in New York City. His son Aaron married Carrie Baron and had at
least six children. Simon's son William married Annie Raschkowsky (who
changed her name to Annie Marks) and had eleven children. This William
Kalischer changed his name to Frank Smith and moved to New Orleans about
1894. Frank Smith was my Dad's grandfather. Simon's son Alexander married
Mildred Halpern.

Is anyone else researching this surname? I would enjoy hearing >from you and
will exchange information. I am particuarly interested in information
related to the city and country of origin of Simon and Rachael Kalischer.

Please answer privately.

Re: Smalian / Smalyan? Rabbi Yoel of Smalian #general

Yosef Ash <j_ash@...>
 

Shalom, Udi.
You ask:
Subject: Smalian / Smalyan? Rabbi Yoel of Smalian


In letters >from 1778 until 1817 (all in Hebrew), I have the place name
Smalian.
In Hebrew, the name of the shtet'l is: Samech Mem Lammed Yud Yud Allef Nun.
Shtet'l seeker brings me to Orsha gubernia, and the only place near Orsha
(between Mogilev & Vitebsk), that looks right, is Smolensk. Is it the same
as Smalian?
Rabbi Yoel Ben Moshe, came to Smalian >from Shklov.
Best regards >from Jerusalem. Udi Cain (Chaikin).
There is on the map one better place than Smolensk.
Find on the map the town Orsha (exactly halfway between Mogilev and
Vitebsk). 22 km NW to Orsha you can see the smaller place named Smol'yany. I
think that is what you are looking for.
Shklov, Rabbi Yoel ben Moshe came from, stands S to Orsha, halfway (40 km)
to Mogilev.
Smolensk is in another country (Russia, not Belarus) and is far away from
this region.
Good luck!

Re: Sochaczew records? #poland

Jan Meisels Allen <janmallen@...>
 

Farra Isaacson asked if there was any information regarding Sochaczew
records being posted soon. I am also very interested in Sochaczew and post
the following responses to help others with the information >from Poland:

Earlier in the year I wrote to the Warsaw Archives asking about the location
of any metrical or census records for Sochaczew. I also wrote to the mayor
and chairman of the city council of Sochaczew. I have been previously
advised that there are no metrical records for Sochaczew. The information
from JRI-Poland's Stan Diamond recently about the "fumigation" problem
effects the access for some months on those records that the Warsaw Archive
referred to. Below is a copy of the translation that Peter Jassem kindly
provided me of the response >from the Warsaw archives. I have also included
the response >from the Sochaczew mayor - which was also kindly translated by
Peter. Please note that the two places they refer me to: The Jewish
Historical Institute does not have any Sochaczew records- I had contacted
them previous to writing the letter to Sochaczew and the Sochaczew Committee
in Israel is the committee that wrote the Yizkor Book on Sochaczew which is
in the process of being translated- the Hebrew is all done and on
JewishGen's Yizkor Book website. I am the coordinator of the Sochaczew
Yizkor Book translation project. Funds are needed to continue with
translating the Yiddish portions..

As for Sochaczew, in the set of records of the Chancellery of the Governor
of Warsaw included in the holdings of the Warsaw State Archives >from the

Announcing ShtetlSchleppers 2001 Schedules #general

Paul W. Ginsburg <pginsburg@...>
 

Can you remember what you did when you first discovered the name of your
ancestral shtetl? Did you try to find it on a map, or did you know to go
right to JewishGen's Shtetlseeker where lo and behold, there it was with a
star marking the exact location. You may have looked at that spot over and
over and began to dream about going there yourself someday. If that has
been your dream, it can become reality. JewishGen ShtetlSchleppers can
take you there.

Let 2001 be the year when you will actually visit that shtetl of your
ancestry, walk in the footsteps of your parents, your grandparents, your
great grand parents . As the Talmudic saying goes..."if not now, when? Let
this be the year that "when" becomes "now".

Explore the itineraries which take you to a hub city, provide the best in
touring sites of Jewish interest, introduce you to local leaders and then,
with your own private guide/driver/translator, really **live** the dream...
visit the place where your family originated. To get a better idea of
making this work for you....
<http://www.jewishgen.org/shtetlschleppers/>.

And what about London2001,the International Summer Seminar?

Whether your plans include visiting before or after, but definitely 'in
conjunction with' London2001, the International Jewish Genealogy Summer
Seminar, be sure to sign up early . You will not only be sure of reserving
space, but most importantly you'll allow plenty of time for productive
pre-research.

The plans and schedules for London2001 are now online and linked >from the
JewishGen home page. It's a tremendous program with more than enough to
meet every interest. Have you looked, have you made your conference or
hotel reservation? Before you make your airline reservations, come and
take a look at
http://www.jewishgen.org/London2001/travel.htm

With advance planning and some smooth scheduling on the part of Joanna
Fletcher, JewishGen's ShtetlSchlepper Travel Manager it may be possible to
include London in the flight package for a pre- or post-conference
ShtetlSchlepper package enabling savings on airfares.

Finally, to accommodate those who have either already visited their
ancestral origins or have not yet reached that point in their research to
take that step, ShtetlSchleppers has created two or three-country cultural
tours where you can visit Prague & Vienna, or Prague, Vienna & Budapest,
all three known for their breathtaking architecture and richness of Jewish
history. It's all online awaiting your visit.

-scheduled group departures,
-customized independent travel,
-two or three country cultural tours, and finally
-favorable air fares >from most cities to London2001

So whatever your dreams, whatever your travel interests may be in
conjunction with the London conference, Let JewishGen ShtetlSchleppers
take you there!

making this work for you....

conjunction with' London2001, the International Jewish Genealogy Summer
Seminar, be sure to sign up early . You will not only be sure of reserving
space, but most importantly you'll allow plenty of time for productive
pre-research.

The plans and schedules for London2001 are now online and linked >from the
JewishGen home page. It's a tremendous program with more than enough to
meet every interest. Have you looked, have you made your conference or
hotel reservation? Before you make your airline reservations, come and
take a look at

With advance planning and some smooth scheduling on the part of Joanna
Fletcher, JewishGen's ShtetlSchlepper Travel Manager it may be possible to
include London in the flight package for a pre- or post-conference
ShtetlSchlepper package enabling savings on airfares.

Finally, to accommodate those who have either already visited their
ancestral origins or have not yet reached that point in their research to
take that step, ShtetlSchleppers has created two or three-country cultural
tours where you can visit Prague & Vienna, or Prague, Vienna & Budapest,
all three known for their breathtaking architecture and richness of Jewish
history. It's all online awaiting your visit.

-scheduled group departures,
-customized independent travel,
-two or three country cultural tours, and finally
-favorable air fares >from most cities to London2001

Re: Jews in the Revolution #usa

Hi-
Thanks for the reply-
I have the patriot info-I'm directly descended >from about 7 or 8; what I
need to know now is how to find out whether these people were Jewish.
I was a memeber of the DAR until I didn't pay my membership fees about
two years ago...Ah well, such is life. I can re-establish my membership
simply by paying the fees.
The reason I mentioned that is to let everyone know I've done extensive
genealogy research in that department, names, dates, etc. What I need know
is how to find out whether any of these were Jewish (I'm pretty sure they
were).

Revolutionary War Patriot Pensions #usa

rebecca baldwin <calicomist@...>
 

Hi-
I had a thought this morning and wanted to ask-
Could Jews own land in the United States during the time of the American
Revolution? I heard there was a time when Jews couldn't own land.
If so, how did they approach the problem of being awarded a pension for
services rendered during the American Revolutionary War?
