Re: INTRO - Researching WEIL family of Steinheim #germany

Dear Lucy,

Abraham WEIL (* about 1775) married Frommet HERZFELD (* about 1789) on
22.5.1818 at Steinheim.
Fanny HERZFELD, mentioned in your email, was born on 26.12.1821 at
Steinheim and married probably in 1841 Salomon NEUBURG.
Her father was Herz HERZFELD and her mother Braune/Braeunchen NUSSBAUM.

is still alive and has shared family trees that trace names and birth
dates of certain lines going back to my 4th great-grandparents.
My great-grandparents were cousins so the line is easier to trace.
However, I'd still like to learn more about the other names on that
side of the family tree.
My primary research goals now are to find out my family's life in Berlin

What I know of my German Jewish ancestors so far is:
Herz HERZFELD and Zarle HERZ (Hirschland?) had daughter Fanny.
Fanny HERZ and Abraham WEIL had 4 children including sons including..<snip>

Knowledge of German among Hasidim in Eastern Galicia #galicia

Carol Sicherman <csicher@...>
 

The central figure in the collection of 101 postcards with which I am
working was educated entirely by Hasidic rabbis. His wife grew up in
a Hasidic family, but as a girl had more social leeway. Nearly all the
cards that he wrote to her during World War I are in German in Gothic
script; Yiddish was their mother tongue, and he wrote three cards in
Yiddish and well as one in Hebrew. The postcards in Polish are all
written by women. As German was the official language of the
Austro-Hungarian Empire, many people would pick up an oral
knowledge. But how would he have learned to write German? Can
anyone explain the educational context for girls?

Thank you,

Carol Sicherman

Voter Lists in 19th century Lithuania #lithuania

Judith Singer
 

Hi - I am researching the CHARNEY families that lived in Kavarskas,
Lithuania during part of the second half of the 19th century. The
particular branch I am interested in appears in the 1877 Box Taxpayers
List but not the 1880 or 1882 Voters Lists. However, I don't think I
can conclude that my branch moved away between 1877 and 1880 because
the Voters Lists contained less than a quarter of the names on the Box
Taxpayers List. Does anyone know what the qualifications were for
being included on the Voters Lists at that time?

thank you

Dear JRI-PLers -

In my experience, old photos, bobe's stories, and immigration
records all are useful for reconstructing the family tree, but
nothing unravels they mysteries of the past like birth, death,
and marriage records >from JRI-Poland.

Less than a month ago I exchanged emails with Judy Golan,
the town leader of Novy Korczyn. Impressed with her knowledge,
and armed with the fact that my Great grandmother Rozja Feiner
was >from there, I decided to support the records indexing
project. $180 donation and a signed a sharing agreement later,
I had the complete XL file.

Armed with easy to search and sift data, the next 3 days were
nothing short of magical. For the first time, I was able to name
not only 2 new GGGMothers, but 4 GGGGM/Fathers all the way back
to the late 1700s! Since then, I've been able to correct several
relationship errors and add countless cousins to my tree. One
discovery was particularly poignant: the records make crystal
clear that Rozja's first husband died when she was 4 months
pregnant with a son.

What makes the JRI-Poland data so valuable is that it also opens
up new avenues for research. A casual reference to a GGGF's birth
town pushed me to look at online records >from that place - and
identify a whole branch of my family that was sitting in JRI's
database just waiting to be found.

I don't like to spend money any more than the next person, but
I know that what JRI-Poland does - collecting, translating, coding,
and uploading data to the on-line database - involves hard work
from volunteers (like Judy) and hard cash - >from somewhere. Over
the past 10 years, I have joined/supported about half a dozen
indexing projects at $100-200 each. There is no better research
"bang for the buck" than the $100 per year I spend supporting
JRI-Poland.

Some records are forever lost, some places are missing whole
decades - thus, some projects have yielded amazing troves; others
not so much. But in the end, the way I think about these records
is that to someone, every record tells a story that needs to be
told.

Please support your town! The fun starts here:
