SCHICK in Philadelphia late 19th cent. #rabbinic

Neil@...
 

Looking for info on -

R. Hanoch Heinich SCHICK, settled in Philadelphia, PA, where he
reprinted his father's Derech Avot (printed by Aaron Levin) in 1895.
This edition traces his ancestry on the title page and includes
approbations by R. Bernard Louis (Dov Aryey) Levinthal (1865-1952),
who was head of the United Orthodox Hebrew Congregations of
Philadelphia, R. DovBer Abramowitz and R. Abraham Zvi Hershler (born
in 1861).

Any help about him and his family appreciated
Thanks

Meaning of "Rit Spaniol" and "Rit Occidental" #bessarabia

Marilyn Robinson
 

I have been reading some information about schools and temples in Bessarabia.
I've seen the terms, "Rit Spaniol" and "Rit Occidental" used. Are they meant as a reference to
Sephardic and Ashkenazi? For example, "Bisericile Israelite-de Rit Occidental", "Bisericile Israelite de
Rit Spaniol", and " Scoalel de Rit Spaniol din?

ViewMate request - Hungarian or Polish comment #poland

Howard Fink <HowGen@...>
 

I've posted part of a vital record, probably in Hungarian, but maybe it
is Polish. I would like a translation. It is on ViewMate at the
following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM27612

The original record was the birth of Abroham DINTENFASZ on 12 December
1873 in Tarczal, Hungary. The part that I need translated is a comment
that was added later (since it includes a reference to 1902). His
parents are listed in the original record as Lajos and Feighe. This is
the only record of the twelve on this page that has a comment like this
squeezed into the right hand column. I'm sorry that I cannot also
display the entire page or record with it, but then this comment would
be just too tiny to read.
The record source is "Birth Records collected by Rabbis in Various
Countries", LDS microfilm 642959.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you very much,

Alabama Naturalizations, 1909-1991 #lithuania

Ann Rabinowitz
 

A new set of records on Ancestry.com are the State of Alabama
Naturalizations, 1909-1991, which contain Jewish as well as non-Jewish
individuals.

A number of the records are more modern ones and you may find
individuals who were naturalized in the 1940's as they were soldiers
based at the large military installations in Alabama such as Camp Sheridan,
Camp Sibert, Ft. McClellan, Ft. Rucker, and Gunter Field. This means
that the records cover more than just individuals who settled in
Alabama, but were >from other states as well.

The records can be searched not only by the name of the individual,
but by country too. Searching by country is a good idea as the names
of the towns individuals were >from are so misspelled or written so
poorly that it is almost impossible to decipher what one should search by.

I particularly like the spellings of Byallysdoy, Russia; Ivis Villa,
Russia; and Malagarostanetz, Rumania, Russia. For those researching the
Jews of the Baltic states, this is a welcome addition as many times
records only state "Russia". This is very helpful, especially since
the towns are included. Amongst these records are approximately 115
records of individuals originally >from Lithuania. Some of the towns
represented in the records are Anyksciai, Kaunas, Kupiskis, Lazdijai,
Leckava, Molotai, Pokroi, Raseiniai, Sakiai, Skud, Utena, Varna,
Vilkja, Vilnius, Zagare, and Zeimelis.

One of the records >from Lithuania documents a Milton Israel, who turns out
to have originally been Mendel ben Getzel Esrach >from Kupiskis who settled
in Sheffield, Alabama. His brother also came to Alabama and became Sam Jake
Israel whilst the rest of their brothers settled in Worcester, MA,
according to family sources.

There are also fifty-three records for Jews >from Latvia >from towns such as
Gostini, Liepaja, and Riga, and thirty-two records for Jews >from Estonia
from such towns as Talinn and Tartu. In addition to the Baltic records,
there are twenty-one >from the Ukraine and forty-nine >from Galicia. The
Galician records state Galicia and such countries as Austria, Hungary,
and Poland. There are also separate listings for these countries
(Austria, 1,389 records, Hungary, 836 records, and Poland, 1105 records),
so it is important to look at both categories when searching.

An interesting record involving an individual >from the Odessa, Ukraine,
is for Schaie Dwoskin, who lived in New Hampshire, joined the Army and
was sent to Alabama and whilst applying for his naturalization there,
also changed his name. Many other records for individuals serving in
the military provide the original birth place and where they settled
in America as well as their original name and wife's name.

Surprisingly, there are approximately 5,003 records for Germans in the
naturalization records, by far one of the largest ethnic groups, many of
whom came after both World War I and World War II. In addition, there
are 2,687 records for individuals >from Russia, another large group.

An example of looking in the Russian records for individuals >from other
countries is the record for Meyer (later Martin) Barr. He was actually
born in Linkuva, ithuania, as was his wife Jennie. Another example is
Musja Schemer (later Minnie Berlin), who was born in Kupiskis,
Lithuania.

All in all, these records are a gold mine of information.
