Genealo-J #137 has just been published #sephardic

/Genealo-J, /publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of France,
Issue 137, March 2019 has just been published.

Many Jews >from Algeria settled in metropolitan France during the first
half of the 20th century. Jean Laloum tries to follow their fate during
World War 2 and especially during the period of the Vichy government. As
for all French Jews, they lost their jobs, even when they were small
businesses. For example, Laloum quotes several widows who were
costermongers and were not allowed to continue their jobs. Most of the
1,500 Jews >from Algeria were eventually arrestedby the Nazis and the
French police and deported : only five percent of those deported
survived. Laloum plans to to list in detail all these Jews. He begins by
those originating >from the region of Constantine, namely those >from
Guelma, Jemmapes, Khenchela, La Calle, Lafayette, Le Tarf, Mac-Mahon,
Oued Zenati and Philippeville.

Julien Colet tells the story of his great-grandmother, Fortunee Abignoli
nee Dyan. She was born in Cairo, probably in 1890. In 1919, she married
Moise Abignoli who already had been married twice and had five children
from his previous marriages. After the birth of a daughter, they settled
in Marseille in 1920, where a son was born in 1923. Moise died in 1936.
Fortunee stayed in Marseille during the war, even after the German army
occupied the city. She was arrested in a roundup in January 1943 and
confined in Compiegne and Drancy. Deported in Convoy #42 she was killed
in Sobibor in March. Colet was amazed to find that the present members
of Fortunee's family have different and distortedversions of her life.
After the war Fortunee's fate still casts a heavy shadow upon her
children, grandchildren, and even perhaps great-grandchildren. This
story makes it obvious that the effect of the Holocaust has lasted long
after the war.

When Victor Fribourg died in New York on May 7, 1884, a long obituary
was published in the /New York Times/ and in several other states. He is
so famous in his family that even in 1972, a wedding announcement in the
/New York Times /says/,/ "/The bride is a descendant of Victor Fribourg,
who was captain under Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo/." Anne-Marie
Fribourg, who belongs to another branch of the same family, studied in
detail the life of Victor, who was born in Niedervisse (Lorraine) on
January 10, 1797, participated in the last Napoleonic wars and emigrated
to New York with his family in 1847.He became a prosperous businessman,
had nine children, at least 37 grandchildren and numerous offspring who
scattered in many of the United States and even in Peru. Fribourg
corrects several details in Victor's legend, especially she shows that
he has never been an officer.

Andree Margolin nee Lantz, an active member of our society for decades,
died in 2018. She left an interesting testimony of her life during World
War II. Born in 1924, she was a student in Paris and later in
Clermont-Ferrand during the German occupation. She tells of her
determination to pursue higher education in spite of all the obstacles
she is faced as a Jew and explains how her family was able to escape
deportation.

Eliane Roos Schuhl describes a medieval seal with the tree of life and
two birds. Deciphering Menahem Ezobi's name on his medieval seal matrix
led Roos Schuhl to look for members of this family native of the city of
Orange (Vaucluse) in the 13th century. Three of them, father and sons,
were known as Hebrew poets. The article deals with a few individuals
bearing this rare name in Beziers, Carcassonne, Perpignan, Carpentras
and Toulouse and all the way to Bulgaria, Italy, Spain and Turkey.

has anyone successfully traced an ancestor's participation in the 1848 rebellion against the habsburgs?

i've come across a tantalizing reference to my gggf (or his namesake), EPSTEIN Zsigmond, mentioned in a recent paper on the history of the revolution, and his involvement in an army hospital in tiszafured. it would seem to be the right time and place, more or less, but i have no indication of his rank or unit.

are there any sources for looking up his military records?

Hello Ingrid

I've volunteered with JRI/Poland for years. While your great grandparents' ages
are a little young, but not impossible (and possibly not exactly correct), what
the record you see is the record of their civil marriage. They had Judka almost
certainly after they'd had a Jewish marriage. The law allowed "legitimization"
of the child when the couples had the state recognized wedding. My GGP had
their civil wedding in Galitzia after their first 9 or 10 children were born,
following a Jewish marriage. They were Hasids and certainly weren't having kids
without being married...

Best,

Madeleine

their own by this marriage record, and on the basis of article 291 of the Civil

Hi

I have been searching the Belarus Revision lists for my pgggf. I only know
that he was called Yitchak and was Rosh Mevita at the Yeshiva in Ruzhany
where he was know as Reb Itzele. I have found a reference to him in the
Ruzhany yizkor book but would love to find out more. Sadly I have no idea
of a surname or his father's name. The only other thing I know is that his
daughter was called Faigle. I can find nothing like Yitchak or Itzele in
the Revision lists. Could someone help and suggest the Russian equivalents
that I could be looking for please.

Many thanks

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake
 

"With the death of millions of Polish Jews, a vast treasure of Jewish
folklore, the product of generations of creativity, was lost as well."
This week's Yizkor book excerpt (>from Chrzanow, Poland) is an attempt
to preserve them ... "to save this tiny remnant >from oblivion." In the
past, I've posted several chapters full "sayings" that usually, with
dark humor, captured the flavor of Jewish life and reflected some of
its hardships. But this collection >from "Folklore" is richer, with
more detail. Rather than just brief sayings, each item - even if only
a tale - provides its own window on Jewish life, often wryly told. One
of my favorites was about a young man trying to get out of military
service during World War I by convincing the doctor he was crazy. When
he was certified as insane, someone asked him how he had done it, and
he answered: "You have to be a little bit crazy to begin with and for
the rest, you rely on God."
