Dear fellow GerSIG members,

Thank you for all your offers of assistance and suggestions. The payment
has been made now. Eight of you replied within hours (not counting
out-of-office replies). GerSIG is a great group.

Yesterday I said:
I need some help paying a Standesamt (Registry Office) in the Rhineland the
sum of 63 Euros for some certificates. They want the money paid directly
into one of their bank accounts.

Re: GUTTMANN - The Five "Familiantin" of Tabor Stadt, 1793 #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

When I first wrote the posting: "The Five *Familiantin* of Tabor Stadt,
1793", I was wondering about the term *Familiantin*. Was it unique to Tabor
and to this particular indexing in the census? I still have not had a reply
from any of our experts in this area.
I do know however that these five *Familiantin*, who were born about 250
years ago, are very, very special as they have opened an Aladdin's cave
of genealogical treasures and links. That is perhaps what they were for -
namely to lead us, on Austria-Czech in July 2005, to many exciting new
areas of research!

We have Alice GUTTMANN and her family written about so movingly by Maud
Beer, Joseph GUTTMANN the journalist and ex left-winger, described by
Hanus Grab, Karel Fous and Uri Meretz and now Ariane Mil's GUTTMANN family
from Wishnitz/Vivnice and Neu Sandez/Nowy Sacz who ended up in Prague
and Zurich.

As I originally wrote, Tabor was choc-a-bloc with GUTTMANNs and as I cannot
read the lengthy, detailed Czech article in Hugo Gold's "The Jews and
Jewish communities of Bohemia", [Die Juden und Judengemeinden Bohmens,
Brunn 1934] I cannot tell you much more about their early history.
Hopefully that will come later.

I was wondering for a while now "where have all the Tabor GUTTMANNs gone?".

GUTTMANN is of course a very common name all over Central Europe,
including Germany, Austria, Poland, Silesia and Galicia. In Bohemia in
1793 the name predominates in Tabor - surprisingly there are only 6-7
GUTTMANN families in the rest of Bohemia [Prague has not been checked
yet]. I cannot check Moravia.

I know >from my own family tree that in the mid 1800s there were approx
30 BIACH family members related to me in Pressburg and Vienna and now
there is not a single one with that name. There are hundreds of descendants
with different names, but sadly not one BIACH. This can happen, if there
are many daughters in a large family. We had 11 daughters out of 14
children in one generation! In our BIACH family, holocaust deaths played
only a small part in the the disappearance of the BIACH family name:
Philip BIACH [8 Nov 1867, Vienna - 25 August 1942, Theresienstadt] and
his wife Flora nee SCHIFFMANN# [12 June 1877, Vienna - Oct 13 1942,
Theresienstadt]. They had no children. For Flora's work on early theatrical
and opera design see:

http://aia.art-platform.com/burnacini_ludov.htm
http://tinyurl.com/d7qwe

I am beginning to think that this is what happened to the Tabor GUTTMANNs.
Surely, such a large family with so many links, would be represented on
Austria-Czech?

There are 24 entries in the Jewishgen family finder {JGFF} for Tabor but
not one GUTTMANN. There are no references in the message archives. They
are luckily not listed on Yad Vashem under GUTTMANN Tabor [except for our
tragic teenager, Alice]. They are not listed on Austria's Doew and "Letter
to the Stars" website. Had they perhaps emigrated to the USA and other
places? The famous coal barons - the wealthy GUTMANN family in Vienna -
were >from Leipnik, Moravia and before that [1733] Kolin and Prague. Or did
our Tabor GUTTMANNs have so many daughters that they just disappeared as
a family name?

I have carried out an an experiment:
On Yad Vashem, I entered GUTTMANN as a maiden name and Tabor as a place of
birth in an *advanced search* and found five descendants with links [mainly
in Hebrew] to explore! If you enter Tabor in any other slot, you find
nothing. Here they are:
1. FRISCH Helena; >from Vienna died aged 81, [born 1858?]; testimony given
by her daughter Elizabeta FABRITZKI in Israel in ?. Elizabeta must have
died by now. I suspect this is Helena's family grave in Vienna:
ZF IV. TOR 6 23 78
FRISCH Helene age 80 died 22.12.1938
FRISCH Emanuel age 64 died 03.12.1925
FRISCH Walter age 69 died 16.10.1964

2. EISLER Kamilla; Brunn/Brno, Moravia dob 1866
Daughter of Michael and Elisabeth - she takes us nearly back to the 1793
census, where we have a Michael! Married to Leo EISLER - submitted by her
son Henry in North London in 1978, who must by then already have been in
his 80s. [I have corrected the entry which listed him as a daughter].

3. BOCK Ida; dob 24 12 1880 living in Brunn/Brno, Moravia. Testimony given
by her son, Armin BOCK in Israel.

4. FUERTHOVA Klara; >from Susice, Bohemia dob 1867. Testimony given by her
granddaughter Miriam KRAUS in Israel.

5. STEIN Hanka; husband Otto of Prague. dob 24 10 1907 testimony given by
her nephew in Israel - Josef STEIN.

So if anyone is actively involved in this area - it should be possible to
create a fairly good tree with various sources of information. The GUTTMANN
family of Tabor lives on hopefully UK, Israel and ? under the names of
EISLER, BOCK, STEIN, FABRITZKI, KRAUS, and FRISCH.

I am sure they are all related but they probably do not know of each others
existence nor of the now famous *Five Familiantin of Tabor in 1793*, who
brought them together in this posting. It would be great if our Israeli and
other Siggers who know any of these descendants could alert them to these
findings.

FRANKL, FODOR, WEISZ, PORGES (PORUBSKY), KOHN #austria-czech

Joyce Eastman
 

At the suggestion of Sharla Levine, Austria-Czech SIG Coordinator, I am
reviewing my research information in the hope of finding more family
contacts. I have been working on my family genealogy for about 5-6 years as
a hobby, and have found quite a bit of information >from documentation left
by my mother's side of the family who originally came >from Hungary and
eventually settled in Trencin, Slovakia. Robert Hanscom, who is also a
distant cousin, has been extremely helpful as well. The surnames and places
I am researching are as follows:

FRANKL, FODOR, WEISZ, PORGES (PORUBSKY), KOHN - Vaj Ujhely, Hungary and
Trencin, Slovakia

RUFEISEN, SCHEIER - Biala (now Bielsko-Biala), and SUCHA (now
Sucha-Beskidzka) in Poland, as well as Stanislawow (now Ivano-Frankvisk)in
Poland and now in the Ukraine. I realize that these are out of the
Austria-Czech SIG area - but they are an integral part of the maternal side
of my family.

I have quite a bit of information >from the first group of surnames. The
FODOR surname was legally changed >from FRANKL by my maternal grandfather
Philp FRANKL and his brother Dr. Julius FRANKL. The PORGES and KOHN side of
the family were well-known in the lumber business. One of my PORGES distant
cousins changed his surname to PORUBSKY, and I have found his son in
Bratislava, who is a doctor. Unfortunately he speaks no English. Some
limited correspondence with him was accomplished though a close friend of
his who speaks both languages.

RUFEISEN and SCHEIER surnames are >from my maternal grandmother's family. I
have some information >from a paid researcher in Bielsko-Biala, but am still
trying to make some more family connections. I am a very distant cousin of
the famous Brother Daniel (Oswald RUFEISEN). RUFEISEN is the surname of my
maternal great-grandmother. His brother is still alive and living in
Israel, but only limited information has been available >from him through
volunteer efforts >from JewishGen contacts living in Israel. He speaks no
English as well. SCHEIER was the surname of my maternal great-grandfather,
and there was intermarriage between the SCHEIER and FODOR families (my uncle
married his first cousin, but had no children. His father and my maternal
grandmother were brother and sister).

Any information regarding possible family connections would be most
appreciated. It is always most gratifying to find living relatives, since
so many have perished in the holocaust, or else have passed on due to old
age.

Stan Zeidenberg
 

Dear 'Genners..
We are delighted to tell you about a wonderful opportunity to own a set of
3 CDs containing 31 recorded presentations at the just concluded IAJGS
conference in Las Vegas. All this is thanks to Ron Arons and his small
army of volunteers. Ron stepped up to the plate when it was announced
that the customary practice of recording the sessions could not be
followed. Conference attendees as well as those who were not able to join
us in Las Vegas now have an opportunity to listen to 31 of the sessions.

We are making the complete set available at a very affordable $35 plus
modest shipping and handling costs. Shipping cost will vary depending on
the country to which the set is being delivered and will show up when you
go through the ordering system in the Mall. Nothing is charged to your
credit card until you approve, so don't be timid about using the system.
Ron will start burning CDs and shipping as soon as he begins to get the
orders. Hopefully you will keep him busy for the next few weeks! <g>

To see a complete listing of which of the sessions were recorded visit
the JewishGenMall at www.jewishgenmall.org The quickest way to find
the complete description is to either enter the full title into the search
field,
"IAJGS 2005 Conference Lectures in a 3 CD Set (MP3 audio files)" or just

russian military aid society #lithuania

I recently discovered Litvak relatives' Brooklyn graves with the
Chevra Kadisha/Burial Soc listed in Washington Cemetery's records as
"Russian Military Aid Society". They said the last known address and
contact with this organization was 1976. Since the cemetery has no one
to contact, and the land in each section belongs to the society, they
have no way to determine if plots are unused, owned, or abandoned. There
are open spaces even in the oldest sections of the cemetery, with no recent
burials in these sections.

Yet, Washington Cemetery has a sign in the office that there only graves
for immediate use and not for reservations.

Any info on the Russian Society would be appreciated.
