GRUNWALD from Budapest with Relatives in Slovakia and Romania #general

pollinia@...
 

Dear Genners,

Earlier last year I posted a message asking for GRUNWALDs >from Slovakia. Since
then I was able to make some progress, and am now looking for Grunwalds in
Budapest with family relatives in Slovakia and Romania. I don't know the exact
identity of the of those >from Budapest, although I can name people who were in
touch or lived with them for certain periods.

If my description rings a bell to anyone, even if only partially, please contact
me.


Best Regards,

Spoiled? #general

Nancy Ring Kendrick <ringgenealogy@...>
 

As I check my daily email >from JewishGen I find it interesting the number of
posts that ask the question; "are these records available online?" It also
triggers the thought of how spoiled genealogists have become with access to
millions, upon millions of online historic records through this wonderful
resource called the World Wide Web." I, too, am one of the spoiled ones!

Years ago, I use to travel to libraries in Orlando, FL, (60 minute drive
pending traffic), libraries in the Jacksonville area (90 minutes or more drive),
and visit the local Family History Center searching for something, anything that
was documentation of my BLOCH, KWASNY and RING ancestors. I did this an average
of 3 times a month, when time allowed. Now I don't. Therefore, I only have my
self to blame for not breaking through my brick wall. Are you guilty of the
same?

Many in this world have become so programmed to looking it up on the internet,
no matter what the subject, they forget about all the other important resources
for genealogy research. Not to mention, there is nothing better than scanning
microfilm and hitting gold. This may be the case with many of you, with the
exception of those with handicaps, etc. who really do not have the ability to
get away >from the computer.

For those who think the World Wide Web is your only resource for genealogy
records, remember, you are so wrong. And, you are limiting your chances of
discovery! The World Wide Web is only one way to search. The World Wide Web
should be used in "combination" with other forms of resources, such as your
local library, The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration in your
area, The Family History Center, and so many, many, more! For those of you not
in the United States, challenge yourself to learn what facilities in your area
offer genealogy records to meet your needs. Then, use them!

For many reading this, Spring is just around the corner! Get out, and away >from
your computer and when possible commit at least four hours per month to
genealogy research away >from the World Wide Web. Then take what you learn, and
use the World Wide Web resources such as JEWISHGEN, JRI-Poland, and the thousands
of other records online, and proceed.

Remember, the World Wide Web is only one luxurious research option among
thousands to assist you in your goals! It should be used as just that, one
source of research, not the "only" resource.

If you have comments, please reply privately, unless it would be educational
and beneficial to subscribers.

Good luck to all!

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

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>

I was very happy to read the announcement on the German list, that the
buriels in the Jewish Cemetery Altena in Curaçao are now searchable. But it might
might be mistaken in stating that this is "probably one of the oldest Jewish
cemeteries in the "New World". Curaçao has 2 Jewish cemeteries. Altena is
the newer one, founded around 1860, while Beth Haim is the older one, the
oldest known buriel there being >from 1668.

When I tried to enter names for burials in Altena, first of all there is no
destination "Netherlands Antilles" yet and secondly, when I entered names of
deceased I am sure are buried in Altena, I did not get any result. What am I
doing wrong? Is there a way to see the whole list? Thanks for clarifying.
