Cohens and Levites #general

David Kravitz
 

I once saw a man called up for the third aliyah, as "... ben so-and-so
halevi." It seems the father married a non-Jewish woman, so the son was
not a levi, but a ger. Nonetheless he cited his father's name as "halevi".

Israel Pickholtz
If his mother was not Jewish, he was not Jewish either and should not have
been called up at all.

On another issue, thanks to the many who picked me up on my accidental typo
about a daughter of a Cohen marrying a Levite. I meant to write that the
sons of this marriage would follow the father's designation.

Tel-Aviv Branch - & Lithuania SIG -18th-19th Century: Bridging Records #general

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

The lecture this month will deal with how Chaim Freedman connects between
documents >from the 18th and 19th century in Lithuania. Chaim has been
involved in genealogy research for over 40 years, specializing in rabbinic
genealogy. He has authored several books including "Eliyahu's Branches, the
Descendants of the Vilna Gaon and His Family" (Avotaynu 1997), and many
journal articles. Chaim is also the chairman of the genealogy advisory
committee of the Davidic Dynasty.

Due to Pesach this month's meeting will take place on Monday April 3, 2006
at Beit Hatanach, 16 Rothschild Blvd., Tel-Aviv, at 19:00. The meeting will
be in Hebrew. Entrance is free for members. There is a 20 shekel entrance

fee for non-members. You are cordially invited to use our library which is
open >from 18:00-18:45, and consult other members about your genealogy quests.

Our effort of help to all those >from abroad looking for submitters from
Israel of Pages of Testimonies at Yad Vashem is a very exciting project.
We have received many emotional letters telling us of families (usually second
and third cousins) we have succeeded in reuniting. We update our list
continually. Please help us help others. Those lines that are white are the
lines that maybe you can help us with.

1921/1922 directory of Polish joint stock companies #galicia

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

A 1921/1922 directory of Polish joint stock companies has recently been made
available online at the Digital Library of Wielkopolska
(www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=30391). This directory contains
historical and economic information about Polish joint stock companies,
including, for most, the names of their directors and/or managers. The
directory is organized by type of business, and includes an index by
business name and an index by town. However, there is no index by personal
name, so I have made the directory searchable at www.kalter.org/search.
Instructions for viewing pages of the directory containing matches to search
terms can be found in the FAQ of the search site
(www.kalter.org/searchfaq.html).

listing in handwriting persons registered at the Polish consulate in
Shanghai, 1934-1941, on the basis of documents issued by Polish
authorities." According to the website:

"In addition to personal names, the register provides the following
categories of information: date of registration; profession; religion;
place and date of birth; marital status; permanent address in Poland and
address of next of kin [rarely provided]; place of residence in the consular
district; documents on the basis of which the person is registered
[generally, passport]; names and year and place of birth of wife and
children; passport expiration date; comments [e.g., 'emigrated to America,'
'returned to Poland,' 'died']. Roughly 60% of the registrants are identified
as Jewish..."

Hello Polish JewishGen Researchers:
Around 1870, Max Deman was born in Poland, he is my
great grandfather. Around 1872, Fanny Share was born
in Poland also. I don't know if they married there or
in the U.S., but they immigrated, ending up in Los
Angeles, Ca. Don't know dates or years. Their
daughter, Celia Deman Tierman, my grandmother, was
born in Missouri, I suppose Max and Fanny were on
their way to California. (Celia married Samuel
Tierman, >from Hungary.
My mother, Sylvia S. Tierman Kronish, married Joel
Joseph Kronish. I can trace his family tree back
several generations to Zobro, now in the Ukraine.
I need help with Fanny Share and her family in my
journey to prove my Jewish Ancestry.
Any assistance, clues, ideas, facts would be greatly
appreciated.
Thanks,

passover customs/ Galicia #galicia

Chana Thompson-Shor <chthompson@...>
 

My last name is Shor; I learned that the only continuously-observant
branch of my family (originally >from Galicia) uses ginger rather than
horseradish on the seder plate, and eats kitniyot (beans, rice) on
Passover, much as sephardic Jews do. They say this is the custom the
family came with >from "the old country". These customs were something
of a surprise, as I'd always been under the impression that we were
thoroughly Ashkenazic, but the details of the family history are a
little fuzzy. Is anyone on this list familiar with these customs among
Galitzianer families (or anyone else Ashkenazi, for that matter... a
bonus if you're a Shor.)

Thank you
