Rabbi Moses Hirsch BORO #austria-czech

Freddy Spielmann <FreddySpielmann@...>
 

Hello,

In the register of the Jewish community Pohrlitz >from 1836
("Mannschaftsbuch der Judengemeinde Pohrlitz vom Jahre 1836") there is
mentioned Moses Hirsch BORO, born 1788, with wife and children as house
owner in Pohrlitz and Rabbi of Eisgrub.

In 1862 Moses Hirsch FLESCH, Rabbi in Eisgrub, died and was buried at the
Jewish Cemetery Eisgrub.

Are Moses Hirsch BORO and Moses Hirsch FLESCH the same person?

Kind regards

Wall Street #usa

jacqueline gill <shibko@...>
 

I have been told that my relative Minnie SHIBKO was one of the first women
to be employed on Wall Street. She was born (in Chicago) in 1883 so this
would presumably have been in the early years of the 20th century, prior to
her marriage in 1913. Can anyone please suggest how I might be able to
ascertain whether or not this is true? Many thanks,

Jacqueline E. Gill, London, England. <shibko@hotmail.com>

Marriage registers from Ichenhausen, Bavaria - a question #germany

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

I am currently working on the transcription of the
Jewish marriage register for Ichenhausen in Bavaria.

I have come across a number of marriages in which
neither the bride nor the bridegroom come >from places
anywhere near to Ichenhausen. These mariages are
sometimes conducted in places far >from Ichenhausen,
but mostly, but not always, by the Rabbi from
Ichenhausen. These marriage records are usually
accompanied by a remark in the form: "mit Dimissoriale
Des Rabbiners X d. d. date." .

Example:

On 24 April 1887 Jsidor Jsrael MAYER >from Würzburg
married Regina ETTLINGER >from Mannheim. The marriage
was held in Mannheim and conducted by Rabbi Cohn from
Ichenhausen " ... Mit Dimissoriale des Rabbinats
Würzburg d. d. 31.3.87 "

Why are these particular marriages recorded in
Ichenhausen's marriage register? Is it possibly
because the couple lived in, or planned to move to
Ichenhausen ? Or what? Thanks in advance,

Adam Yamey, London <adamandlopa@yahoo.co.uk>

might be mistaken in stating that this is "probably one of the oldest Jewish

When I tried to enter names for burials in Altena, first of all there is no

DRACH #galicia

Bruce Drake <bruce.drake@...>
 

I have learned a lot on the website about doing searches and have
made progress in trying to trace the various lines of my family,
most branches of which came >from Galicia. But I haven't made much
progress on my paternal grandfather, Samuel Drach, who was born in
1884 in Wojnilow (now Voynilov) and came to New York in 1904. I know
only that his father was named Jacob and he listed his mother as
Helen (nee Shippar, although the handwriting wasn't completely
clear). I see listings for many Drachs in Wojnilow and its environs
in the census on JewishGen, but none that remotely correspond to
his parents' names. The only other thing I know, through a
surviving relative, was that his first mother died early and he left
home at 13 because he didn't care for his stepmother. (I don't know
if the Helen Shippar was his natural mother or stepmother.)

I have also been unsuccesfully trying to establish the link between
my grandmother Anna (Ebert) Drach and a Friede Ebert of Bukaczowce,
who married an Abraham Mandel. I know >from a fellow participant on
JewishGen that Friede was a connection between my grandfather's
family (obviously through the Ebert side) and the Mandel line, but
other than knowing that Friede and Anna had different parents --
Friede's were Sam and Sylvia (Gross), and my grandmother's were
Mordechai and Neche (Kleinfeld) -- I cannot establish the
relationship. So, if anyone here is researching similar names and
has information, I'd appreciate that too.

If there is anything further I should try, I'd be grateful for
recommendations.

I also had one other question. While it is unlikely I would pursue
this to the point of visiting Voynilov, I assume given the fate of
its people in the Holocaust, there would be no great gain in doing
so. Is that right or wrong?

Gesher Galicia Luncheon-IAJGS-SLC Conference #galicia

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce their luncheon program for this
summer's IAJGS Conference in Salt Lake City.

The luncheon will take place on Monday, July 16th >from 12:30PM - 2:00PM,
and is open to all conference registrants, but you must register
specifically for this paid event on the website in order to attend.

Erin Einhorn, a reporter for the New York Daily News will be sharing a
fascinating family saga, spanning generations, which will be of
interest to all genealogical researchers, not just those with roots in
Galicia, so please consider joining us:

BENEATH THE SURFACE

When Erin Einhorn found the family that hid her mother, as an infant,
from the Nazis during the Holocaust she thought she'd created a
made-for-TV-reunion for two families thrown together by history. A man
who knew her mother as a child threw his arms around her and told her
the little girl had been like a sister to him. But the initial embrace
soon gave way to half a century's hurt feelings and resentments. She
soon found herself apologizing for choices made years before she was
born, untangling a real estate deal made on a handshake by people no
longer alive and struggling to prove the death of a great-grandfather
born in 1868. In a year spent living in Poland -- the country where her
mother was born -- she found the only known photo of grandmother and
shocking news about how she might have died. She met a rabbi who
annually brings kosher Chinese food to Krakow for a ritual meal and a
Polish nun who insists she's a Jew. She watched with amazement as
10,000 young Poles packed an outdoor plaza for a concert of Jewish
klezmer music and made a life for herself in a country where she feared
she'd hated. Now a reporter for the New York Daily News who is working
on a book about her experiences, she tells what she learned, how she
learned it, and how easy it was to debunk family memories and folklores
with documents tucked away in Polish archives.

If you have already registered, but want to add this luncheon, which
involves an additional fee, go directly to:
