Rabbi Moses of Copenhagen #scandinavia

Nancy Holden
 

Wow.

Thanks so much that was a wonderful find. That is the first confirmation
that I have had about Rabbi Moses of Copenhagen other than the small article
in Enc. Jud. giving a little history. He is also mentioned in the Otzar
HaRabbanim as number 14361. He was >from the tri-community of Altona,
Wandsbeck and Hamburg. Son of "Rosh Josef" (Joseph ben Jacob of Pinchov, his
mother was Deborah, daughter of Moses Kremer of Vilna (the grandfather of
the Goan of Vilna). He was born about 1706 probably in Kosovo, Belarus and
may have died in Vilna as the encyclopedia article mentions him as "of"
Copenhagen and Vilna.

Is there any way of discovering more about him? He was married to the
daughter of Solomon Zalman >from Brisk but I do not know her name.

His children were Chaim, Joel, Joseph of Lomza and Mirka.

Thanks again

Kew look-up request #unitedkingdom

Alice Josephs
 

A TNA catalogue search indicates that the background papers of the
naturalisation application of Jacob BELINKIN (1885-1926) have now been
made available. In my previous efforts to obtain copies of these
records (with the assistance of a kind London genner) the files were
classified as closed.

If any fellow genner on this list is planning a visit to Kew and would
be willing to do a simple look-up, I'd be very grateful. I have the
relevant file ref.numbers.

Please contact me privately: jnblank@netvision.net.il

Joel Blankett
Jerusalem, Israel

Just a couple of points about this posting which I hope is helpful to
Joel and others.

You can order these documents online at the National Archives website
and they will be sent either by snail mail in paper form or, if the
customer chooses, digitized form by email.

For any closed documents, you have to apply to the Home Office Record
Management Services, Room 155, 50 Queen Anne's Gate, London SW1H 9AT

This can admittedly take a couple of months but it's certainly worth
doing if documents will be closed for a few years. I did this myself
for my grandfather and they were released about four months after I
wrote to them.

His query provides an excellent opportunity to remind Galician researchers
about the incredible JewishGen database of "The 1891 Galician Business
Directory," containing over 20,000 names >from over 1,000 different towns
covering the length and breadth of Galicia:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/galicia1891.htm

For each entry, the database contains the following fields: Surname, Given
Name, Town Name, Occupation (in German), and Occupation (translated into
English), and includes Jews and non-Jews, which means you can also identify
the Polish magnates who "owned" the towns and villages (and mills, taverns,
and distilleries!) your ancestors lived in, and, possibly worked for.
(Another excellent avenue of research for some.) You can also download the
entire list of entries for one particular town--quite useful in identifying
family and business connections, along with providing a socio-economic
"snapshot" of your ancestral shtetl at one point in time.

In ten seconds of searching I identified the following 14 KLAUSNER entries,
some of whom ARE in involved in the glassmaking and toy businesses Joel
refers to. >from here, he can go on to search the JRI-Poland database for
the existence and location of vital records on these individuals,
and--possibly--gain vast results in another thirty seconds of so of
research. Not bad...even for busy researchers!

Here are the results:

Sanok and Brzozow Indexing Projects #galicia

Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

Dear Fellow Galitzianers,

I am happy to announce the indexing of vital records and Censuses for the
towns of Brzozow and Sanok as part of the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
project. These records are currently housed in the Sanok Sub-Branch of the
Polish State Archives, and as such are part of the Rzeszow Branch Archive.

Brzozow, located at 49 42', 22 01' and Sanok, located at 49 34', 22 12',
are in the Krosno Province of southeastern Poland, in the area formerly
known as Galicia. Brzozow is 24.2 miles south of Rzeszow; Sanok is 34.5
miles SSE of Rzeszow.

The Brzozow project includes 1542 Births, 825 Marriages, 76 Deaths, and 2481
entries in the Census files. The vital records span the years 1877 into the
20th century. The census years are 1869, 1880, 1890 and 1900.

The 10 most common surnames in the Vital Records are WILLNER, SCHERZ, ZWIK,
FEIT, LACHMAN, ROTH, FREUND, SCHEINBACH, BRAFF and WEISS. There are a total
of 737 distinct surnames in the records. A surname frequency list is available to any
researcher requesting it.

The total cost to index the Brzozow records is $1166. The qualifying
contribution is $100 which entitles you to obtain both the vital records
Excel file and the entire Census Excel file, as well as well as some
additional 20th century records as they become available. Please make sure
to note "For Brzozow Indexing Project" on your contribution.

The Sanok project includes 236 Births >from 1864-1897 and the 1900 Census
with 1117 entries. The 10 most common surnames in the births files are:
DILLER, RAUCH, REICH, PINCZOWSKA, LOEFFEL, BIRNBAUM, EHRLICH, PURETZ,
SCHNECK and WEINER. There are 161 distinct surnames in the birth records.
Surname frequency lists for the births and census indices are available to
anyone requesting them.

The cost of indexing these Sanok records is $270. The qualifying
contribution is $36 which entitles you to obtain both the Births and Census
Excel files as well as some additional 20th century records as they become
available. Please make sure to note "For Sanok Indexing Project" on your
contribution.

Both of these indexing projects are included in the current Gesher Galicia /
Jewish Records Indexing - Poland 2:1 matching funds program. I urge you all
to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to expedite the addition of
these records to the on-line JRI-Poland searchable database in a timely
fashion.

The Galician record indices contained in the JRI-Poland database would not
be accessible to researcher without our host, JewishGen. In addition to
your contribution to the JRI-Poland Sanok and / or Brzozow Projects that
supports indexing of the records, we hope you will also consider a
contribution to JewishGen to help defray the cost of maintaining these
records. An easily accessible contribution form may be found at

Intro-Researching KLAUSNER family from Furth #germany

joel levinson <joel.levinson2@...>
 

Hello GerSig,
I have just joined the group.I have been doing research for perhaps 5 years, but
still consider myself to be a novice at both researching and with the computer.
I live in suburban New Jersey,USA. My native and only language is English.
I know the names and birth and death dates of my great
grandparents,grandparents and my grandparents siblings.

I don't know anything at all of my great grandfather,Aron Jacob KLAUSNER's
siblings and therefore the extended family. I do ,however, have the suggestion of
a connection with KLAUSNERs in Furth, Franconia, Bavaria, Germany.

**My great grandfather.Aron Jacob, grandfather Max and Max's siblings
Herman, Willy, Rosa and Freida were born in Rytro, Poland. In Rytro there was
intermarriage with the families GOLDMAN and PAPERLE

**At some point Herman, his wife Rosa and son Sigi moved to Wein, [Vienna]
Austria. My grandfather Max immigrated to the US in 1910.
Max's cousins, the GOLDMAN brothers with their wives,the PAPERLE sisiters
moved to Furth, Germany.

In Furth there is a memorial dedicated to the memory of those who were lost
in the Holocaust. On the memorial is the name Sigmund KLAUSNER who died at
Auschwitz. The memorial book states that Sigmund KLAUSNER's father Leon moved from
Wein to Furth in 1901. I have a photo/postcard of Sigmund,Paula and Isi sent from
Furth to my grandfather in the US >from Tante Hanchen, possibly Leon's wife. I also
have photos of a Heinrich KLAUSNER for whom we have no information.We
do not know the relationship of these KLAUSNERs to my family. Perhaps Leon
was a brother or cousin to Aron Jacob.

It seems that people relocating normally move to areas where they have
family. We beleive the GOLDMANs moved to Furth and the Herman KLAUSNERs to
Wein for that reason. The purpose of my search is to find relatives yet
unknown.If anyone has any information it would be most appreciated.

Wein to Furth in 1901. I have a photo/postcard of Sigmund,Paula and Isi sent from
Furth to my grandfather in the US >from Tante Hanchen, possibly Leon's wife. I also
have photos of a Heinrich KLAUSNER for whom we have no information.We
do not know the relationship of these KLAUSNERs to my family. Perhaps Leon
was a brother or cousin to Aron Jacob.

It seems that people relocating normally move to areas where they have
family. We beleive the GOLDMANs moved to Furth and the Herman KLAUSNERs to
Wein for that reason. The purpose of my search is to find relatives yet
unknown.If anyone has any information it would be most appreciated.

Re: Highmaster of the Deutschritter Order #germany

This is one of the old German knighthood orders (the other: Deutschherren) which,
historically were religious in nature and stem >from the time of the crusades.

Later on (beginning 19th cent.) they became more secular. During the Weimar years
they again became religious (protestant). They were forbidden by Hitler and again
became prominent in both Austria and Germany after 1945.

The headquarters of the orders changed over the centuries. The order itself
consists of a black cross and a white cape with a black cross.
