Hildesheim -PeineStr. Cemetery Data #germany

Gunther Steinberg <beagun27@...>
 

I have received a CD with a copy of the list of names and layout of
the "new" Hildesheim Jewish cemetery that is part of their main cemetery.
It does not include the names >from the old cemetery in Teich Strasse, which
dates back to the early 19th century or before. - The Peinestrasse cemetery
includes some monuments for the holocaust victims. There are also some
individual histories and other data.
Contact me privately for more details. The CD was apparently put out
my the local community AG Beth Shalom with help >from the Robert Bosch School
under the guidance of Christian Augustin.

They hope to publish the material in book format with the addition of more
individual histories.
A E-mail address is included for contact for additions and corrections.

"Valentine" Given Name & New Member Introduction #france

Joan Lieberman <JCL-RSP@...>
 

For the past several years I have been a member of the GermanSIG, where
I mistakenly thought I belonged. In 2001, I traveled to Salt Lake City,
Utah in order to spend a week at the Family History Library. In a state
best described as "ignorant hubris" I expected to be able to assemble
records for my LIEBERMANN family tree (paternal) during that single week,
even though I knew only the name, not the birthplace, of my great
grandfather, the first to arrive in America.
I left Salt Lake humbled with only two (2) LIEBERMANN records in hand.
The first was a 1874 NYC marriage record for "Valentine LIEBERMANN" (born
Obergeis, Hesse, Germany, 1820); the second was a 1880 US census record for
"Fallentin LEIBERMANN" (born Metz, 1820). Ignoring the contradiction in the
two records, I mistakenly spent several years accumulating records for the
first Valentin' s family, which was Lutheran and not my father's. My great
grandfather was the Fallentin LEIBERMANN born in Metz. He left France for
America in 1852, listed as "Valentin ROBERS" on the manifest.
After a careful review, I found only one "Valentin" listed in the 1784
Census of Jews in Alsace. He was Valentin LEVY >from Hirsingue and I am
interested in finding records for his descendants, as well as for other
names listed below.

Re: Locating correct town of birth: Zwiniacz #galicia

Mark Halpern
 

Max:

You mention different AGAD. What you mean is that the vital
records for the towns where your ancestors were born were
registered in different Administrative towns. The Austrian laws
that went into effect in 1877 identified where each town with a
Jewish population registered their vital events. Although
Kobylowloki (now Zhovtnevoye) and Zwiniacz (now Zvinyach) are
only 5.9 miles apart, their vital events were registered in
different Administrative towns -- Janow and Budzanow
respectively. Janow (now Ivano Frankovo) was an Administrative
town within the larger Trembowla district. Likewise, Budzanow was
an Administrative town within the larger Czortkow district.

Although Zwiniacz and Dzwiniaczka are close in spelling, I do not
think the registrars made a mistake in their recording of the
birth. Apparently, your great grandparents had their children in
different towns, some of which are about 50 miles apart. I think
you will find that others have this same kind of situation in
their families. In my family, the predominant occupation was in
the Distilling business. Many of the men were leaseholders under
the Arendarz system. I have found ancestors that had children in
4 different towns, some separated by 30-50 miles. My assumption
is that the family moved >from leasehold to leasehold for the
greater economic opportunity.

Another situation I have seen is that the pregnant mother stayed
in her parents home for some births and in her husband's parents
home for other births.

I received my grandfather's birth record and the death records
from two of
his brothers. The two brothers were born and died in
Dzwiniaczka/Dzwinogrod
(Dzvinogrud?) in West Ukraine, East Galicia in 1892. These
records were from
Mielnica (Melnitsa Podolskaya) PSA in the Borschev region of
Ternopil
oblast. I had found two of his other brother's records in
Borschev AGAD.
What is puzzling me is my grandfather's birthplace. I had seen it
in the
past as Kobylowloki. On this birth record it is Zwiniacz >from the
Czortkow
PSA of the Ternopil oblast. Shtetl Seeker doesn't seem to place
any of these
close enough together for me to figure it out. Another brother
was supposed
to have been born in Ozeryany and the mother was >from Korolowka,

Dear Genners,
Do you have a Lazarus RADLOWSKY (or anyone similar) on your family tree?
Lazarus (Lazar?) was probably born around 1850 in Poland.
He lived at 5 Mathilda Street in London and his cousins were called GOLDSTEIN.
RADLOWSKY may also have been spelt RADLOWSKI, but I guess, was pronounced
Rad-loff-ski.
If any bells ring, please email me privately!

12, 1884 in Minsk, Russia. His father's name was Julian or Julius and he may have
been a tailor. The family spoke Yiddish (in case this is of any importance).

I have searched numerous Belarus websites and cannot find a surname which is

Re: Zabludow Model #general

Tilford Bartman <bartmant@...>
 

Hi,

I returned Friday evening >from two days at the "Common Heritage: The Wooden
Synagogues of Poland" exhibit in Milwaukee Wisconsin. It was held at the U. of
Wisconsin Department of Architecture and the Wisconsin Polish Center. On
Wednesday afternoon I gave a power point presentation on the Jewish community of
Zabludow and their wooden synagogue. Presentations were also given at the Polish
Center by Thomas Hubka on wooden synagogue architecture, and Sam Gruber on
restoration of synagogues and cemeteries in Poland. The Zabludow synagogue model
exhibition opening was at the Polish Center of Wisconsin on Thursday evening.
There was Klezmer music, Jewish and Polish food. The building is very beautiful
and was designed by Tom Hubka with Polish wooden synagogue influences. A crowd of
perhaps 100 persons attended about half of whom were Jewish and half of whom were
Polish or otherwise. On the whole the events were very successful and people were
very impressed with the synagogue model. Bellow is a link to some photos of the
events I have posted on my website. We hope to arragne other exhibitions of the
model in the future.
