Re: South African Migration #southafrica

How can this get done
Do they want to know the proportions of polulace who went to each place or
just that "my daughter went to Ra'ana and my brother went to London?"
Can someone lay out a questionaire of sorts and we can get people to answer.
I would offer to do this but I don't know the actual object of the question.

of mapping Jewish Migration over the past 40-50 years and asks "How can
this get done"?

Each one of our SIG members are living in a Jewish
Community. Do these communities not
have a Jewish Newspaper or Magazine, where an
advertisement can be inserted to obtain the information
desired? This can be taken upon by the Co-ordinators
of the SA SIG in the country in which they are living.

Re: Cemetaries #southafrica

WE checked in the Encyclopedia Hebraica and found no instructions on how
the grave or body should be placed whereas they did state that Moslems place
the body on its right side with the face towards Mecca.
The Aron Hakodesh in the Synagogue should face Jerusalem/East.
Two different concepts.

Re: ABELES in Bohemia #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Susan L. Lubow of Morristown, NJ writes: I have been
researching my ABELES ancestors for many years.
Recently, I have received new information. If anyone
knows anything about the following people, I would
appreciate hearing >from him/her:

I. Jehuda ABELES, Branntweinbrenner in H? bei Zedwitz
- Probably born bet. 1760-1770
i. Meyer ABELES, Branntweinbrenner in Petrowitz bei
Rakonitz. Probably born about 1800. Married to Rosa
RUSS etc

I have good news for Susan. Jehuda was one of the many
distillers who took leases on properties and moved
around. By 1793 he was no longer in H? by Zedwitz but
was already settled in Petrowitz/Petrovice Rakonitzer
Kreis as a "Bestand Jude in herrschaftlichen Haus", ie
he had the distilling and potash concession >from the
Lord of the Manor.

His name is given as Juda and he is married to Anna. A
footnote implies he has taken over this concession
from Herschmann BORGES [Prague]. He is listed as being
zustandig [resident] in Hochlieben. [Vol 5 p347]

Now here is the surprise for Susan. Mayer [Meyer] was
already born in 1793 and he is the last of five
brothers - there are also two sisters.

1. The first born son Abraham is already married ie
perhaps aged 24 and living in Chiesch/Cyse, Saatzer
Kreis, working in the Ciesch textile factory. Indeed
we find him in Chiesch, called Alexander, with two
sons Samson and Joachim. He is denoted as a fabric
dealer and is resident of Weiten Trebetitsch {Vol IV
p313}

2. Then come sons all unmarried: Isak, Lebl, Josef and
Mayer

3. The two daughters are called Regina and Martha

4. In the Rakonitzer kreis we find two RUSS families.
They live in Geniowes Herrschaft/Gut which
incidentally has a village in it called
Weltruss/Veltrusy - could this be the origin of the
name RUSS? The two RUSS families live side-by-side in
neighbouring Wojkowiz/Vojkovice and are both dealers.
Moises is married with four daughters - the third is
called Rosalia - Could she be the future wife of
Mayer? Josef Russ is also married and has a son Marek
and three daughters [Vol V p319].

Mayer could have been a "late baby" and born in the
1880s. His oldest brother, Abraham [Alexander], must
have been born ca 1768 -then we have three further
brothers and perhaps two sisters before Mayer arrived
ca 1780-1785. We know >from what Susan writes that
Mayer's third-born son David ABELES was born in 1822,
so Mayer probably married when he was in his late
thirties. It may have taken that long to obtain a
familiant licence.

The material is available in abridged form at:

A book-format of the Dresden Yizkor Book is now in its last stage of
preparation, and will hopefully be printed in the not too distant future.

Anyone with any Dresden information is requested to send it to
CJZGedenkbuch@t-online.de in German. If you have no German, please
email via me, I will translate it and forward it.

Someone recently posted a question regarding Dresden Holocaust
deaths and I will reply to him direct. However, the following
general information regarding Dresden may be of interest. In place
of the traditional Gedenkbuch, there exists a Buch der Erinnerung
issued by the Arbeitskreis Gedenkbuch der Gesellschaft fuer
christlich-juedische Zusammenarbeit Dresden e.V. Unfortunately,
this excellent reference source is only available in CD form. If
readers find that their local libraries do not have this CD (and I hope
they will order them )I would be prepared to search for specific

Fieldgate Street Buildings #unitedkingdom

".....29,30,31 only appeared in Fieldgate Street Buildings and not as
separate house entries and again not Grodzinski....."

On reading Rosemary Wenzerul's comment about Fieldgate Street Buildings
vs. Fieldgate Street, I just had to add my two pence worth. Fieldgate
Street Buildings are, in fact, three (or more) terrace blocks which
stand at right angles to the street (end on), along a stretch of one
side of Fieldgate Street itself. Each block is made up of several
apartments, and the apartment numbers run through the whole set of
buildings, sequentially. These buildings do not stand on their own
individual streets - access is >from Fieldgate Street. Some of the
buildings, although somewhat dilapidated, are still standing.

The Family History Centre at Bancroft Road Library (Mile End Road, East
London) has detailed maps of the area going back 200 years or so. The
resident archivist is very helpful, and can be reached on
"localhistory@towerhamlets.gov.uk". =20

1700s. I have the following names:

Yaakov Koppel Hasid
Yaakov Koppel Likover
Yaakov Koppel Charif
Yaakov Koppel of Mezhirech

Are any of these the same people? Which was the BESHT's disciple
and chazan? Which claimed descendancy >from Judah HaChasid of
Regensburg?

Thanks. Your help is appreciated.
