Families from TACHOV/TACHAU #austria-czech

mehadrin@...
 

While looking at information regarding the grave of the saintly Rabbi
Nachum the scribe of Tachov, I spent some time reading the book
Geschichte der Juden in Tachau by Josef Schoen (1927) which is
available online. I saw that there is a familienregister, a register of
local families in which the author painstakingly copies the names and
dates of birth of the Jewish families of Tachau. This is an invaluable
resource for anyone with origins in that historic community.

Re: Statistics on Conversos #sephardic

Ralph Baer
 

I want to thank everyone who replied to my question, both on line and
privately. While, as expected, there is not universal agreement as to the
percentage of Spanish Jews who converted, there was agreement that
significant numbers converted and significant numbers left the country.

The reason that I had so few Converso matches is probably what my contact
suggested, a relatively small amount of non-Americans take DNA tests from
American companies.

I wanted to correct one thing which I wrote in replies to a couple of
people. I do not have one 4th-great-grandmother who is known to be
Sephardic. That 4th-great-grandmother Barbara (Brendel) ASTRUK who was born
about 1735 in Worms and died on 20 February 1793 in Heidelberg-Rohrbach was
herself actually only quarter Sephardic through her paternal grandfather
Calmon ASTRUK (born about 1660 Mannheim, died 26 February 1721 Mannheim).

His parents were Moses Abraham ASTRUK (born about 1630 Avignon, died 1668
Mannheim) and Gentille CARCASSONE (born Avignon, died 16 January 1705 Wien).
Abraham's wife. Moses Abraham ASTRUK's father was Gad ASTROUQUE (ASTRUK)
(born about 1600 Avignon). His mother is unknown. Gentille CARCASSONE's
parents were Emanuel (Manoach) CARCASSONE (born Avignon, died 8 April 1667
Mannheim) and Rosa de MONTE (MONTEUX) (born Avignon, died Mannheim).

One 6th-great-grandparent would account for 1/256 on my DNA or about 0.4%
which would explain why autosomal DNA tests don't show it.

If anyone knows how the people whom I mentioned are connected to those
families in Avignon, I am certainly interested.

Constantinople 1890's-Egypt

nardir4@...
 

My Grandmother Louise (bernhardson,bernardson,bernhardt,berman??) was born in then
Constantinople into a family of merchants.The family apparently also had interests in a water bottling plant in Egypt.or so we were told.

Her mother Susan Sarah (Barris,Beinich??) died in 1894 giving birth to her 3rd child Isadore.

Her father Abraham came from Roumania as a 1 month old baby in 1858.

his (Abraham’s) parents were Moses Ber and Nahame.

My grandmother went to the once prestigious German School in Constantinople.

She had a cousin also named Louise about the same age who later married a

Moritz Kremer,a jeweler in Cairo.There was a common uncle of the Louises named Ignatz also in Cairo.Louise Kremer had 6 children,the eldest named Emmanuel.

After my grandmothers mothers death the family moved to Thessalonika,and then to London about 1896

My grandmothers mtdna Haplogroup is N1b1b1.

If there is anyone out there that can recognise even the smallest detail in this sketchy outline(which is all we know) I would be ever so grateful to hear from you.

HI Ruben, 

Wonder if you can direct me to a source other than CEMLA, for locating info on an uncle. 


BTW, my maternal Weiser line is from Buczacz and Tarnopol.

Trying to make contact with descendants of this family which traces
back to Landau rabbinical family of Sanz. One - Rabbi Aryey Leib
Aoptheker lived in New York (1846-1942). On Kevarim.com there for him
was a posting by David Apotheker of Stoughton, MA. Any contact
information would be appreciated.

Have you checked the given names database on Jewishgen.org for suggestions?  Also remember that when you look in the US censuses there were times when Poland did not exist, it was either Russia (eastern and central) or Germany/Prussia (western).  Many people Americanized their names by using the first letter.  I have seen many instances of the name Sam when the Hebrew/Yiddish name was not Shmuel.  No idea of Filda - could the name have been Tilda?


Deep ancestry of the Maharal

E. Randol Schoenberg
 

On Geni, I am proposing to sever the deep ancestry of the Maharal, which appears to be invented and without any reasonable source. I am sure people will be upset, but if you disagree, please follow the discussion at https://www.geni.com/discussions/194554 and add some sources to the profiles.

To be clear, I am proposing to sever the Maharal's maternal grandfather Chaim from his father.

Thank you for noting Germany's ongoing reconciliation efforts.

DNA

Rosalind Finkelstein
 

I had my DNA tested at My Heritage and was informed that I am a close match to Joan G.  I got in touch with her as I don’t know who she is.  She is Jewish but wouldn’t tell me anything about herself or her family.  I have tried to research her but I can’t even find her birth certificate which leads me to think she may have been adopted.  She has New York roots but adoption records in New York are sealed.  I sent a letter to her nephew but haven’t heard back from him.

I don’t want to cause  trauma for anyone nor am I looking for new cousins.  All I want to know is how we are related.  I have no first cousins as my father’s immediate family died in the Holocaust and my mother had one brother who never married.  Anyone who might be able to give me information is no longer alive. 

I would appreciate  any help or suggestions anyone may offer.  Thanks in advance.

Hi Ruben,

Please look up any TUCHFELDs for me. I am likely related to all with this surname in Rzeszow. Thank you!

Can you tell me what your source is or anything about it? I am on the board of Gesher Galicia and we are always interested in new sources of information. We are not aware of any Rzeszow Jewish records before 1842. Thank you!

Re: Statistics on Conversos #sephardic

The ending date of the Inquisition, I am told, is considerably later
than one might imagine. My ancestor Antonio de Sousa was born 1707
on the Island of Terceira, Azores, Kingdom of Portugal. He left his
native country at the age of 19. I think he may have been escaping
from the Inquisition, as late as it might seem.

Naming of first-born after grandfather's death #galicia

David Scriven
 

Dear All,

I've noted a pattern in the records of my family: if the husband's father
dies, the first-born male after this event will be given the same name
as the (deceased) grandfather. I'm guessing that this was a tradition -
but was it among all Jews in Galicia, or among a specific group? Was
it seen outside Galicia?

Apart >from the difficulties for genealogists of having people with the
same name every 2nd generation, was it enough of a rule/tradition
that the reverse inference can be made?

My g-g-grandparents had a child named Abraham Isac Pomeranz 3
months after the death of an Abraham Isak Pomeranz (at age 52) >from
my g-g-grandfather's home town (Stryy). How likely is it that Abraham
Isak Pomeranz is actually my g-g-g-grandfather?
