HALBERSTAM - EISENBERG #rabbinic

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Is anyone aware of the Sanz-Klausenberger Rebbe, R' Yekusiel Yehuda
HALBERSTAM, having been a descendant of R'Avraham "Charif" EISENBERG
of Ulanow? I am trying to confirm an only partly supported lineage
that R' Yekusiel Yehuda HALBERSTAM's maternal grandmother Esther
EISENBERG (b. 1845, Lancut), wife of Meir Meshullam SPIRA (1840,
Lancut-1920), was the daughter of R'Pesach EISENBERG, son of
R' Avraham "Charif" EISENBERG of Ulanow, and my relative Rebecca
KALTER (1830, Lancut-1895, Lancut), daughter of Joseph HaKohen
KALTER (c. 1800, Lancut-1864, Lancut). I have been told that this
Pesach EISENBERG may be mentioned in a story in "Dvash HaSade"
("Honey of the field"), by R' Dov Berish, a shochet in Rzeszow, that
was recounted to the author by the Admor of Jaroslaw. If someone
with easy access to this book could verify this, I would appreciate
it.

Thanks very much and best regards,

International Tracing Service data release- to be believed when seen #germany

Lande
 

I would suggest extreme caution in evaluating the announcement regarding the
"opening" of ITS files, at least until we see the details. ITS, supported
by Germany, have resisted access for years and has proposed limited access
to "scholars". If this is what has been agreed to, genealogists would
continue to be excluded, and would still have to wait years for replies to
inquiries.

Rabbi Matisyahu Treves #rabbinic

Yisrael Asper <yisraelasper@...>
 

I finally looked in closer detail than ever into a vexing issue in
Jewish genealogy that I know others may wish to chime against but
I'm just offering my opinions: The MaHaRaM Mi Padua was the son of
Rabbi Yitchak Katznelbogen (of Prague) also called Rabbi Yitchak
(Katznelbogen) (of Katzenelenbogen) in turn he was the soninlaw of
Rabbi Yechiel Luria of Brisk brother of Rabbi Yochanan Luria of
Worms who was the author of Sefer Hadracha and son of Rabbi Aharon
Luria of Alsace.

from this point on there is controversy. The longest version which I
have advocated without vouching for the names and appellations or
denying other possible connections to Rabbi Matisyahu Treves goes
like this: Rabbi Aharon Luria of Alsace was the husband of a woman
named Miriam and son of a Rabbi Nathaniel Luria the son of a Rabbi
Yechiel Luria also known Rabbi Yehuda Luria he was the son of Rabbi
Shimshon (Luria) (of Erfurt) husband of a woman called Miriam the
daughter of Rabbi Shlomo Spira of Heilbronn also called Rabbi Shlomo
Spira of Spira the son of Rabbi Shmuel Spira of Spira whose wife was
the daughter of Rabbi Matisyahu Treves (of Provence) also called
Rabbi Matisyahu Treves (of Paris) the father of Rabbi Yosef Treves
of Paris and the son of Rabbi Yosef (Treves) (the Great) of
Marseilles >from the family of Rabbeinu Yehuda Sir Leon of Paris who
is also known simply as Rabbeinu Yehuda of Paris (when speaking of
him amongst those involved in political activities on behalf of the
Jews). He was the son of Rabbeinu Yitzchak the son of Rabbeinu
Yehuda of Paris (the other one naturally).

Competing versions can dwindle the above tremendously when combined
and say say instead: "Rabbi Aharon Luria of Alsace was the son of
Rabbi Nathaniel Luria the son of Rabbi Yechiel Luria and some say
his name was Rabbi Yehuda Luria, his father in turn was Rabbi
Shimshon Luria who was not identical with Rabbi Shimshon (Luria) (of
Erfurt) though both were be >from the same family. Rabbi Aharon
Luria of Alsace married Miriam daughter of Rabbi Shlomo Spira or
Rabbi Shmuel Spira; Rabbi Shmuel Spira's son for sure being called
Rabbi Shlomo Spira. Their stories got mixed up because both for
short can be called R"SH. Either Rabbi Shmuel Spira or Rabbi Shlomo
Spira married the daughter of Rabbi Matisyahu Treves who was not
known as Rabbi Matisyahu Treves (of Provence) or Rabbi Matisyahu
Treves (of Paris). It's said Rabbi Matisyahu Treves had lived in
Spain; learning there and returning to France once an expulsion
decree against the Jews was lifted. He was the son of Rabbi Yosef
(Treves) (the Great) , Av Bais Din of Paris and so should not be
called Rabbi Yosef (Treves) (the Great) of Marseilles. Rabbi Yosef
(Treves) (the Great) was >from the family of Rabbeinu Yehuda Sir Leon
of Paris known simply as Rabbeinu Yehuda of Paris son of Rabbeinu
Yitzchak son of Rabbeinu Yehuda of Paris."

With repeating names and places and common events and confusion of
generations I think that a longer version got cut shorter.

An EISEMANN Family, Probably from the Vicinity of Grosskrotzenburg (Hessen) #germany

Ralph N. Baer <RalphNBaer@...>
 

Back in 2000, I submitted two messages on this topic. My
great-great-great-grandmother Roeschen SCHMIDT nee EISEMANN was born about
1812 in an unknown place. She died on 19 March 1872 in Grosskrotzenburg
near Hanau. She married on 16 December 1839 to Seligmann SCHMIDT of
Grosskrotzenburg. The marriage record gives Roeschen's father as Gumpel
EISEMANN and her mother is not listed -- I assume because she was deceased.
There is no indication of Roeschen's birthplace on either her marriage or
death record.

A brother of Seligmann SCHMIDT named Aron married on 18 April 1841 to Ester
(Eva) EISEMANN, assuredly a sister of Roeschen. On this marriage record,
Ester's father is again given as Gumpel EISEMANN, and no mother was
originally entered either. However, someone has entered in another
handwriting the name Vogele. Because of naming patterns, it can be assumed
that Vogele was the mother of both Roeschen and Ester (Eva), that she died
by 1839, and that her husband Gumpel was still alive in 1841. The question
that I am trying to answer is where Gumpel EISEMANN and his family lived.
Both Roeschen and Ester died before 1876, when in theory their death records
would have given their places of birth.

I have done an area search of most of the Jewish communities "near"
Grosskrotzenburg without success. The problem is considerably complicated
by the location of Grosskrotzenburg which was within a stone's throw of
several former and current borders. It is on the north bank of the Main
river, the last town in formerly Prussian Hessen-Nassau before entering the
Bavarian region of Unterfranken (Lower Franconia). Across the Main river is
what used to be the Starkenburg region of Hessen-Darmstadt. This means that
records prior to 1876 for towns in the vicinity are in several German
archives. The only place in the vicinity of Grosskrotzenburg in which I
found an EISEMANN family is Orb (now Bad Orb), but there is no indication of
a Gumpel. There are a number of places in the vicinity of Grosskrotzenburg
whose records I haven't located, especially in Starkenburg.

Since Gumpel EISEMANN was apparently still alive in 1841, his death record
should exist. I received several responses in 2000, but none resulted in
the discovery of this record. The most promising one stated that there was
a Gumpel EISEMANN living in Barchfeld (Werra) in 1720. While this Gumpel
was born too early to have been the father of people born after 1800, he
conceivably could have been the grandfather or great-grandfather of the
Gumpel whom I was looking for. A search of the vital records of Barchfeld
did not turn up the people whom I was looking for in the early 19th century.
It is possible that the early Gumpel was my ancestor and the family was
somewhere else in the 19th century.

It remains a possibility that a branch of the descendants of the Gumpel
EISEMANN who was living in 1720 moved elsewhere, perhaps in the vicinity of
Barchfeld. Has anyone come across such a family? Barchfeld was in the Kreis
(county of) Schmalkalden which although part of Hessen-Nassau was disjoint
from it and is now in Thueringen (Thuringia).

"H" Code on 1930 Census #general

philafrum
 

Genners,

I noticed on a page >from the 1930 census >from Philadelphia that several wives were
listed in Column 6 (relation) in the following way:

Name "Wife-H"

The husbands in both cases on this page were listed as "Head" of their respective
families.

Is there a different or special meaning to the "H" as it applies to the wives in
these cases?

Thanks for your help.
