Searching Family GRUNEBAUM in S. Africa. #germany

Docted22@...
 

I am searching for descendants of Alfred & Else GRUNEBAUM who emigrated
from Germany to South Africa.
Alfred was born in Waechtersbach in 1907 to Benjamin and Lena GRUNEBAUM.
His mother Lena was one of five daughters of Solomon ARON and Bettchen
nee STERN. Lena (1881-1927) was a cousin of my grandfather Adolf ARON
of Puderbach, Kreis Neuwied where the ARON Family originated.

Alfred and Else GRUNEBAUM had two daughters, Lorraine and Miriam (Mickey).
They lived in Kensington, Johannesburg.

I'd appreciate any information on this family. Best wishes to everyone for 2010 -

Searching SCHAHSMIN from Theilheim in Bavaria #germany

SiebenSachen - Daniel Simon
 

Hi Genners,

During my last research, I came across a very unusual family name. One of my
ancestors Abraham KOCH (b.19th Feb. 1828 in Mainz) married a [woman with the
family name] SCHAHSMIN after the death of his first wife Hannchen SALOMON.

SCHAHSMIN was born 9th Dec.1844 in Theilheim (Bavaria) and died 3rd April 1929
in Mainz. Unfortunately she has no given name in this "Familienbogen".

Of course I am not sure about the spelling, this is the way the clerk wrote
it down. Is the family name SCHAHSMIN familiar to anyone?

Can somebody tell me where this name comes from?

Google is not very helpful but I presume it is a Baltic name. If so, I wonder how
did it migrate to a place like Theilheim?

Thank you for answering privately or to the list if it is of general interest.

Viewmate: Location of Great Shul of Uman #general

Bill Saslow <bigbear011@...>
 

I would like the "Great Schul" of Uman identified on the picture
linked below, if possible. My Great Great Grandfather prayed and
studied there.

Does anyone know the orientation of the picture (e.g. looking
northward)?

The Picture is on Viewmate:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=14320

I am also interested in a high-resolution version of this picture.
Does anyone know where one can be obtained?

Thanks,

French origins of CAHEN surname? #germany

Ben Forman <ben.forman@...>
 

Hi Genners
In my research into my CAHEN fmaily who lived in the Lechenich / Bruhl / Koeln
region through the early 1700s-early 1900s I have come across circumstantial
evidence that they may have come to the region >from Alsace in the ealry
1600s, this is mainly >from the oral testimony of a distant family member
who lived in Lechenich before WW2 which was recorded in Klaus Schulte's
book on the Jews of NRW >from the 1700s and has been propagated in
subsequent historical publications.

In recent correspondence with a researcher/historian of the region he
suggested that the Alsace origin story might be nothing more than a
"bubbameiser" after all how could a family oraly remember it's origins
of 300 years previous. However I recently found a Facebook group called
"My last name is Cahen" and nearly all the people who have written on
the "wall" of that group say that their origin is in France with 2
originating >from Alsace.

Personally I see no eason why the story of my CAHEN origins shouldn't be
true, but my question is basically, is Cahen specifically a French/Francophone
(or even Judeo-Alsatian) rendering of COHEN or is CAHEN a common spelling
across many different geographic locations. ? Thanks!

Seeking information on Rudamina shtetl #general

Danielle Weiner <lovemom51@...>
 

Hello genners!

I am working on creating a Jewishgen Shtetlinks page for the shtetl
'Rudamina' (also known as Rudamino or Rudomino) in Lithuania. As there
are two villages by the same name in this country, I want to clarify that
I am seeking information for the Rudamina that is in the Vilnius district
(54 35/25 24), a few miles SSE of Vilnius, NOT the one located in the
Seinai district, many miles west of Vilnius.

I would very much welcome any pictures, stories, family histories,
historical or general information you might have on this village.

There were some 365 Jewish families registered in this town in 1900,
including that of my grandmother (nee Geler) who had many siblings and
cousins there.

My hope is that they and all of the Jewish townspeople of Rudamina not be
forgotten.

Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

Re: Jewish doctor to the Czar? #general

Alexander Sharon
 

According to one of my cousins, my grandmother told the family that she
had an uncle who was the Czar's doctor. I'm wondering if this was really
possible.
snip..

I am afraid to disappoint you, but those stories are still belong to the
category of the of Bubbe manzes.

To start with, a simple fact that Schmuel Brumer was residing in Moscow till
Russian Revolution already disqualifies him "as Czar eye doctor"
You see, Moscow was not the capital city of Russia >from 1712 till 1918, and
Dr. Brumer had to schlep all the way to the Czar palace in Czarskoye Selo
near Russia capital, St Petersburg to examine Czars eyes.

Czar Nicholas II personal physician (official title: leib-medic) was doctor
Evgeniy Botkin, who was shot dead by the Soviets together with the members
of the imperial family in July 1918.
He was the son of doctor Sergei Botkin, personal physician of Czars
Alexander Ii and Alexander III

I'd like to point out that rationally royal warrants for the purveyors of
the imperial court have been limited to the artisans and tradesman and their
products

Amongst know purveyors of the Russian Imperial court were:

Smirnov vodka, Faberge jeweler, Farina gegenuber Eau de Cologne. Cristal
champagne.

Seeking a SCHWAB family from Hanau #germany

Daniel Schwab <daniel.schwab@...>
 

Firstly thank you so much to all those wonderful people who have
replied to my request for information posted to this list last week.

I am searching for any living "blood" male relatives who are directly
related to my father's SCHWAB of Hanau, lineage and to this day still
carry the SCHWAB family name.

from the feedback I received, it seems that there are two high
priority areas for research.

1. Regards the original area >from which my ancestors moved to Hanau;
According to the introduction that my grandfather wrote for his
genealogical records "All male direct descendants of the [Max SCHWAB]
family mentioned herein were born and domiciled in Hanau, with the exception
of the first who seems to have settled some years before his death arriving
from the south of "Germany" (Schwaben)".
Do you have any information on the Jewish community that lived in this
area around the 1500's? This would be very helpful to perhaps link up
with other SCHWAB families who came >from the same area but settled in
other towns around Germany.

2. I had a relative named Abraham SCHWAB who moved >from Hanau in the
late 1800's or early 1900's to Berlin, was a Jeweler and died
circa.1922/3. Nothing else is known about this relative. Did he marry?
Did he have children? Why did he move to Berlin?

I would be most great full to anyone who can assist me in this matter.

Sincerely, Daniel Schwab, Jerusalem Israel daniel.schwab@...
