Dr Manfred PAPO - Sephardic Rabbi in Vienna, Manchester and Salisbury, Rhodesia. #unitedkingdom

Links in Jewish genealogy between different communities, which may be far apart
culturally and geographically are never far away, but you have to find them.

Were I to ask this group if there was a link between the very old Sephardic
Community in Vienna and the Sephardic Communities in England and the
Commonwealth, few today would be able to answer. However, the answer is here in
my little website on Sephardic graves in Vienna - see Manfred PAPO [20th
photograph]: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cam37/sets/72157600562689992

PAPO Manfred Prof. Dr. age 68 born Vienna 17 Oct 1898 died 14.05.1966 buried
17.05.1966 together with PAPO Michael Chacham B.age 75 died 01.02.1918.

Dr Manfred PAPO was Chief Rabbi of the Sephardic Community in Vienna - and an
active teacher. Imprisoned in Dachau - managed to escape to UK, where he served
as Sephardic Rabbi in Withington, Manchester and >from 1944-1964 as Rabbi of the
Sephardic Community in Salisbury, Rhodesia. Returned to Vienna, where he died.

His grave is next to the huge ornate ELIAS grave, which you can also see here.
There are literally dozens of other Sephardic graves in Vienna - and I know
that some families have early links to the UK too. There are many ADUTT
burials.
I am interested in the ADUTT family who appear on my Vienna family tree and
here they pop-up in England in 1861. All were born in Vienna except for
Ernestine - who was born in Bucharest.

Marco ADUTT abt 1820 Widower Head Islington St Mary Middlesex
Leon ADUTT abt 1843 Son
Hillel ADUTT abt 1849 Son
Ernestine ADUTT abt 1851 Daughter
Bertha ADUTT abt 1854 born Bucharest Daughter

Betti ADUTT abt 1823 Servant/housekeeper

Nb Marco appears in the census as Marie, but I corrected this a few years ago
on the transcript. It is likely that Mrs ADUTT died in Bucharest - possibly in
childbirth? All except Leon ADUTT disappear after 1861; they probably returned
to Vienna. Leon marries and settles in London and has a family.

I was wondering if anyone is interested in jointly hiring a researcher to
visit the Botosani archives and/or is interested in a joint trip in April or
May 2008. For anyone who has already done either I would also like to hear
of your experiences and recommendations. I recently attended the IAJGS in
SLC and came away inspired that for Romanian genealogy times are finally
changing.

I'm trying to locate the town where my EISENKRAFT ancestors came
from. It is Rusow (or Rusov) and is near Chernovitz. Has anyone
heard of this town and do you know how I might obtain birth and
death records? (Also researching WEINER and MEHLER [MILLER]-
Horodenka.)
Kenneth,

Rusow, pronouned [rooh soof], was (still is?) a small village in
Sniatyn district, Stanislawow Province. Currently the town is known
as Rusov at 5050 2408 (refer to the ShtetlSeeker to pinpoint
location), located 13 km NW >from the known Jewish community Snyatyn
(ex Polish: Sniatyn) in Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast (ex Stanislawow
Province).

http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/LocTown.asp

Very general Rusow's description can be seen in 1929 Poland Business
Directory, direct link:
http://data.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/1929/loadtop.htm?1518

Rusow's Jewish population was only 22 souls out of 1330 general
population.

As the town is located only 13 km >from Sniatyn and all the
facilities such as post office (Sniatyn Zalucze), telegraph and
telephone were also located in Sniatyn, you should conduct your
research in Sniatyn, where Jewish ccommunity of the region was
centralized, and all the vital records were originated.

When viewing Sniatyn listings in the Directory you will notice three
entries for EISENKRAFT businessmen in this town.

Rozne towary (General Store): J. EISENKRAFT

Conducting search for EISENKRAFT through JewishGen's All Poland
database (I have narrowed the search to the exact surname spelling
and Galicia only)

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Poland/

you will see that Chaim EISENCRAFT >from Russow, Galicia, Austria
was issued an emergency US passport, and in addition there are 73
listings for EISENKRAFT (exact spelling) in Stanislawow Province.
You will notice that the majority of EISENKRAFT surnames are located
in Kolomyja, and few in Horodenka and Zablotow; this appear to be
another branch of your family with many members originated >from
villages in Kolomyja region (mostly Matyjowce, Chocimierz and
Slobodka Lesna) but I see under Zablotow that Mindel's (born in
1892) mother Marjem Rifke Eisenkraft was >from Tulukow/Rusow
(Tulukow was another forgotten Jewish village in Sniatyn district).

I am not certain why Sniatyn records have not make listing in All
Poland database, since records are available. Only one logical
explanation is that during the existence of JRI-P AGAD Project
records were not availble for indexing since they were not
transfered to AGAD archives as being mixed up with new records,
e.g. less than 100 years old which are kept in USC Archives.

I have checked Polish Archives database and it appears that Sniatyn
Jewish records, which also include Rusow, are indeed available

Marriages: Years 1862-1914, 1920-1940, 1942

Re: Acronymic Names and Who's a Sephardic Jew #general

malkajef <malkajef@...>
 

It is always a pleasure to read Michael's comments. I did indeed mean the
Yerushalmi nusach that was brought to Ashkenaz by the KALONYMOS family. I am not a
rabbi and though the Babylonian Talmud did in time become the one universally
accepted as the more authoritative, it was my understanding that at the time of the
Kalonymos family, it was the Jerusalem Talmud that was primary in Ashkenaz. As I
said, I am no rabbi and could be wrong on that point and if so I apologize.

Of course both Sephardic and Ashkenazi traditions developed over time and many
authors were influential in that development, I mentioned CARO and ISSERLES because
that was the time in history that marked a significant break. Although what
Isserles disagreed with Caro about were relatively minor points, that is when the
differences were "formalized" to use a term that is probably too strong. (I believe
I used the term "concretized" in my original comments, which is also probably not
the best choice). It is the time which many Sephardic historians repeatedly point
to.

In any case, I was just mentioning the religious component as just one - among many
possible ways used to define Sephardim. Since this is a genealogy list, it might be
best to leave it to the rabbis to argue these finer points - and as we all know
they could argue them for a very long time! For genealogists, what is the most
important is where the records are to be found.

As to shtetlach, although the word does indeed arise >from the German word stadt
and its variants (Yiddish is after all derived >from German), I do not think
non-Jewish Germans referred to their own villages as a shtetl. It seems to be a
term used specifically for Jewish villages, hence my saying it was a Yiddish word
and one that in my readings I found commonly used for Jewish villages in Eastern
Europe and the Pale rather than in western Europe but would again defer to
Ashkenazi experts if they feel otherwise.

Again, my point was to show the many existing definitions of Sephardim, rather than
to get too far into the Ashkenazi side of the discussion of which I am certainly
not an expert.

I very much appreciate Michael Bernet's knowledgeable comments.

I am searching for descendants of SCHWERIN. The only thing I know about him
is that he was German and owned and run a pharmacy in Teheran
during the reign of Reza Schah Pahlavi. He is an uncle or great uncle of my
mother Susana SIMON (née PAUL) and I remember she was very proud saying
people rememberd him when she visited Teheran in the early 60s. So please
contact me privately if you have some information about him.

Willi BUSCHHOFF was an uncle of a relative whose papers have come
into my hands. He was born about 1890 , probably in Worms, Hesse,
was last heard of in 1938 in Berlin. He was an actor and apparently
writer. In 1938 he sent his niece(in th US) a number of short
stories, suggesting that she get them translated and published.

I would like to know how to find out whether writings by Willi BUSCHHOFF
had been published in Germany . Suggestions for sources?
