R' LIMA, Vilnius Chief Rabbi 1655-70 #rabbinic

Ried Nathalie <nathalieried@...>
 

Shalom to all,

I am looking for genealogical information about the family
(descendants) of R' Moshe ben Itzhak Yehuda LIMA, who was Vilnius's
Chief Rabbi >from 1655 to 1670.

The mother of Tsvi Hirsh KATZENELLENBOGEN, one of my ancestors
(1795-1868) was Gitel bat Shlomo Yehuda LIMA, and I suppose it was
the same family. In fact, Gitel appears in the 1816 Revision List as
daughter of Shloma and in the book "Ir Vilna" as the daughter of
Yehuda LIMA.

Thanks a lot for any information you could provide about the family,

Hello All,
I have to say that this is without a doubt the best research group or
message board that I have even found! It is the first thing I look at
when i get up in the morning (besides my wife) as well as when I get
home >from work at night. Your postings have been a wonderful source of
information and encouragement for me in my search for my Fathers
family in Bohemia. The map link is just awesome and I thank Peter &
Frank for that wonderful bit of history made available to us all.
As for my search, I have hired someone in Prague to assist in the
search and hope to have something soon but I have been looking for
years so waiting a while longer will not be so bad. I have a niece
that is considering taking a teaching job in Prague so my excuse to
travel their is getting even stronger!

Again thank you all for the wonderful posts

Finding possible Holocaust survivors #austria-czech

Zimmer-Luedinghausen@t-online.de <Zimmer-Luedinghausen@...>
 

Hi list,

I recently found out that a relative (Charlotta Leierova nee Lang) who
was sent >from Prague to Terezin in 1942 together with her 3 year old son
(Antonin Lang) had a daughter too. She must have been born in 1940 or
1941.

Charlotta was killed in Auschwitz in 1942, her son Anton "died" in
Terezin in 1943. I was able to find them in the online Yad Vashem
database and the "Terezinska Pametni Kniha". There is no sign of the
younger daughter. Her name was probably Marie/Maria/Mariska or similiar.

Not to have found her in the given sources probably is a good sign!
What might have happened to Marie?
What possibilities are there to find her?

I hope someone can help.

A relative sent me the link to this wonderful collection of old

worth taking the time to view them. The images include life in Galician
towns and Polish towns. Several photos show people - and they are named.
You might find your family here.

Romanian Citizenship Declaration #romania

Fred M. Schwartz <fritz123@...>
 

I recently came into possession of my gfather's Romanian Citizenship
Declaration. The certificate, signed by Carol I, is dated 10 December,1879
and references the law voted by the Senate on 13 October 1879, which
apparently granted citizenship to Jews who fought in the rebellion
against the Ottoman Empire. The certificate references Article 7-2 of the
Constitution and his (Carol I ) decree No. 2529 of November 6th, 1879.

Three questions:

1. Where can I obtain a copy of the old Romanian Constitution for that
specific clause?
2. Where can I obtain a copy of that law and that Decree?
3. What is the likely-hood that there is a dossier on my gfather filed
somewhere relating to this certificate. If so, where might it be?

The lesson here is to never give up the search. You never know when a
new document will appear.

Re: KASCHMANN name origin #germany

Ury Link
 

Rishy Savin asked
I am researching the KASCHMANN family of Wilmars in the 1700s and then
Gross Ropperhausen in the 1800s and 1900s. I [wonder] where the KASCHMANN name
originates. I assume it might have been Katzman but I have no evidence of that.]

My answer is:

Mr Lars Menk in his book A Dictionary of German-Jewish Surnames, by Avotaynu
Inc. Bergenfield N.J 2005, (page 414) Possible >from "Chashman" in Hebrew, a
noble or brilliant one, magnate (In Judo-German also Cardinal) Also >from "Kashe"
(or Kashye in Judo-German) what means a difficult question and the ending of Mann.

Menk also gives the possibility that the name derives >from Kosman and he gives the
explanation that Kosman came >from Cosmus in Greek. Or >from Gottesmann what means
a man of God. Menk notes that the name was found in Gross Ropperhausen.

I know that Mr Lars Menk is one of the best experts on German family names
but I want to give one more explanation:
Kossman (or Kosman,Cosman) is also a nickname to the Biblical name Moshe.
The explanation to this nickname is that Moshe is called in the Bible
"Moshe Yish Ha-Elohim" Moshe the man of God or in German Gottesmann.
(Deuteronomy cap 33 vers 1) then we can theorize that the origin of the
family name Kaschmann is Kosman >from Moshe. Best regards,

Shalom to all,

I am looking for genealogical information about the family (descendants) of
R' Moshe ben Itzhak Yehuda LIMA, who was Vilnius's chief rabbi >from 1655 to
1670.

The mother of Tsvi Hirsh KATZENELLENBOGEN, one of my ancestors (1795-1868)
was Gitel bat Shlomo Yehuda LIMA, and I suppose it was the same family. In
fact, Gitel appears in the 1816 Revision List as daughter of Shloma and in
the book "Ir Vilna" as the daughter of Yehuda LIMA.

Thanks a lot for any information you could provide about the family, (I'm
sending a copy of this message to the RavSig List)
