1887 Birth Record from Rusne (Silute/Heydekrug) #general

Graeme Boocock
 

Hello,

I am looking for the birth record of an Alfred Simon ABRAMOWITZ
(sometimes Simon ABRAMOWITZ) born March 23, 1887 in Rusne,
Silute/Heydekrug.

Alfred was a Ministerialrat during the Weimar Republic. He became an
advisor to the Prussian Ministry of the Interior and the head of
national police. He married a Regina KROPKE >from Hannover (sometimes
Marie Regina Else Minna KROPKE), and the two of them ultimately fled
to London. He died there in July 1945.

Alfred ABRAMOWITZ was living with my wife's great grandmother, Clara
LOEWENHEIM (formerly LEWIN, maiden name ABRAMOWITZ) in Berlin in the
late 1920s. Due to the common surname, I have always suspected that
this Alfred may have been a cousin of some sort. However, we also
know that Clara rented out rooms in her large flat to various
non-relatives as a source of income, so it is equally possible that
Alfred is not a relative at all. With the help of Luc Radu, we have
now found the source of the patronym ABRAMOWITZ in Clara's family: it
was earlier AVRAMOVICI and derives >from an actual Avram only two
generations back >from Clara. This Avram was >from the Botosani area of
Romania.

Although I know Alfred Abramowitz' date and place of birth from
several later records, I do not know his parents' names. If I could
find their names, I may be able to confirm or refute the possibility
of a family connection once and for all. I have to say that the
distance between Rusne and Botosani is already leading me to suspect
that he is not a relative.

Of course, I have had an initial look around JewishGen and Ancestry.
I have not found anything pertaining to Alfred's birth or parentage so
far. Are there extant records >from Rusne >from that period that can be
searched?

With Best Regards,

Graeme Boocock

Jewish Gymnasium in Lwow at 17 Zygumtoska St. #general

I've just posted a 1943 photograph of staff and students of the Jewish
Gymnasium in Lwow located at 17 Zygmuntoska St. (today ul Gogola) on
Facebook here:

https://www.facebook.com/GesherGalicia?fref=ts

If you can identify any of the people in the photograph, or have more
information about this school and/or the time-frame of the photo that
would be historically or genealogically helpful, please reply on the
list, or to me privately if you prefer.

What we know:

At this location there was an elementary school (grades 1-6,) a high
school (grades 7-10) and a Liceum (grades 11-12.)

The first all-male school was opened in 1918 with director, Salomon
IGEL, >from the well-known family of Jewish bookstore owners. Igel was
born in Zloczow in 1889 and was a psychologist and prominent educator
active in the Leopolis Society B'nai Brith. In 1928, this school
became the cause for major demonstrations in Lwow, after the antics of
the youngsters who threw plaster debris and bread peels onto the
participants in the Corpus Christi procession.

Another private all-male gymnasium of the Jewish Association for
Public and Middle Schools in the humanistic style was also founded at
17 Zygmuntowska Street, >from the parallel classes of the classical
high school. The directors were Michal BRANDSATTER, Dr. M.
BIENENSTOCK, Henry LILIEN, and Dr. Salomon IGEL.

The publication "Dzieje najnowsze" published in Lodz in 2007, reported
that the "Endeks" (members of the Polish ND-National Democratic Party)
destroyed two synagogues, the office of the Jewish daily paper
"Chwila", office of the Yiddish publishing company "Der Morgen", and
this Jewish high school at 17 Zygmuntowska Street at some point during
WWII.

This photograph was donated to Gesher Galicia by Nahum SAGI in Israel.
His father, Israel SHRAGER, attended the school.

Research assistance on identifying the photograph and history of the
school was provided by Julian BUSSGANG.

Shchuchin 1850 Revision List translated #lithuania

Jrbaston
 

Dear fellow Lida District researchers --

I'm delighted to announce that the 1850 Revision List (along with
the 1851 Additional Revision List) for the town of Shchuchin has
now been translated and I've just added it to the LitvakSIG Lida
District Research Group site at: https://lidadistrict.shutterfly.com

I've added the surnames for the Shchuchin 1850 Revision List to the
document entitled SURNAMES >from THE LIDA DISTRICT 1850
REVISION LIST on our site's home page, at the bottom, in the section
called SURNAME LISTS. I've also copying the Shchuchin 1850 RL
surnames at the bottom of this message.

There are 464 individuals named on this list. The translation of the
Shchuchin 1850 RL marks the 11th town translated out of the 12
official towns of registration in the Lida District. The next to be
translated will be Belitsy, and that will finish up the 1850 Revision
List.

Besides Shchuchin and Belitsy, towns in the Lida District include
Eisiskes/Eishishok, Lida, Novy Dwor, Orlya, Ostryna, Radun,
Rozhanka, Vasilishki, Voronova and Zhaludok.

While this list -- and the rest of the 1850 Revision List for Lida
District towns -- will be publicly searchable in the LitvakSIG
All Lithuania Database and JewishGen Belarus Database after at
least 18 months, it is currently available only to participants
in the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group.

A contribution of $100 US will qualify you to become part of this group,
and to have access to Excel files of all Lida District records (new and
old) through December 31, 2019.

To contribute, go to www.litvaksig.org/contribute then scroll down to
Research Groups and choose Lida District.

Thanks to the support of many of you, over the last 16 years
we have been able to translate nearly 75,000 records.
Next Lida District list to be translated for our group will be
the 1816 Revision List, along with the 1818 Supplemental List for
small villages in the Lida District.

If you have any questions about this list, please write me at
JRBaston@aol.com

I hope that this year has been a good one for you, and want to
wish you and your families a healthy and happy 5776!

Can't find image of death of Sara Redlich, in Rawa Ruska, in the year 1895. #poland

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - Using JRI-Poland.org, I found the death record for a Sara Redlich
in Rawa Ruska in the year 1895, Akt 90. I believe the parents surname
was mistranscribed, as it says "Bikner", but I suspect it's "Rittner".

I clicked on the link to see the image. However, the link brings me to
a page of Rawa Ruska deaths, but the year is 1892. So I browsed the book
up to the last page, and while it does have deaths for the year 1895, I
cannot find Sara Redlich, and the book ends with deaths in the middle
of 1895. So either the book wasn't fully scanned, or I'm overlooking
the page with her name. Can anyone find it for me? Thanks.

Breakthrough on ZALKA #general

Joan
 

Hi,

It's been a while since I've posted, but I believe I made a huge
breakthrough on my great-great-grandfather and his family.

I found what I believe is Henry, Sophie, Mary, Sara and Nathan on
a list of Radziwie PSA Books of Residence which I believe is a
census record. I know them with the last name of ZALKA, on the
list they are DZIALKA, Enoch, Szyfra, Mariem, Sura and Nuchem,
from the towns of Poick and Wloclawek. Birthdates are the same
and Enoch's father's name is Nuchem and mother is Maria ILOWER.
On what I believe is his death notice >from New York his father
is listed as Nathan and mother as Mary JULOVIR.

I am so excited! It's been years since I broke a brick wall.
I now need some help in what I do with this info????? It also
lists Enoch's occupation as handlarz and Szyfra's as Przy mezu (if
someone can translate for me, thanks in advance.

"Endogamy..." author Israel Pickholtz to speak on Long Island - Sunday, Aug. 30 #galicia

Renee Steinig
 

As you may have read on other lists, longtime Gesher Galicia member
Israel Pickholtz has been on a "U.S. tour" to discuss his groundbreaking
new book, "ENDOGAMY: One Family, One People" -- a guide to Jewish
genetic genealogy. After speaking engagements in Maryland, New Jersey,
West Virginia, Illinois, California, and Arizona, Israel is now New York
bound.

You are cordially invited to attend Israel's special Long Island appearance,
hosted by the Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island:

"Jewish Genetic Genealogy - A Family Study"
Sunday, August 30, 2:00 p.m.
Mid-Island Y-JCC (www.miyjcc.org/AboutUs/Location-Directions.cfm)
45 Manetto Hill Road, Plainview

Admission is free and all are welcome.

Because of many generations of endogamy -- marriage "within the tribe"
-- Jews are related to one another, multiple times. As a result, Jews who
test their autosomal DNA find more matches than those who are not
associated with endogamous groups. Using examples >from his own
research, Israel will discuss how, despite this complication, genetic
genealogy helped clarify many relationships in his extended Pickholtz
family.

A Pittsburgh native, Israel made aliyah in 1973. He is a veteran
genealogist whose flagship work is the Pikholz Project (www.pikholz.org),
an effort to identify and reconnect all Pikholz descendants. Israel's
involvement with genetic genealogy began in 2012, when he attended
the inaugural "Practical Genetic Genealogy" course at the Genealogical
Research Institute of Pittsburgh. A member of the International Society
of Genetic Genealogy, the Guild of One-Name Studies, the Israel
Genealogical Society, and the Association of Professional Genealogists,
Israel blogs weekly at allmyforeparents.blogspot.com.

Copies of the book (www.endogamy-one-family.com) will be available at
the meeting for purchase and signing.

Kulikow (Zolkiew Kreis, Galicia) 1854 Cadastral Map online! #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

A most interesting 1854 map for Kulikow (Kulykiv, Kulikov) in the
"Zolkiewer Kreis" (Zolkiew Circle) had been uploaded to the Gesher
Galicia Cadastral Map Room:

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/kulikow-kulykiv-1854/

The map shows a well-developed town center with market square, a
minor square with a possible synagogue, three churches and two large
Catholic cemeteries, a Jewish cemetery, a large reservoir, and some
unusually long and narrow farm parcels. Buildings and land parcels are
each clearly numbered; redline revisions to building and parcel outlines
indicate changes in town after the 1854 survey.

If you have researched or visited this town and know, for certain, the
location of the former Jewish synagogue, please let me know privately
and we will add that information to the map description.

If you want to learn more about Galician districts, and the history of how
they evolved over time, check out the timeline created by Alex Feller
from the Rohatyn Shtetl Research Group here:
