I came upon a reference to a collection of over 8,000 Czechoslovakian
cadastral maps, at high resolution, listed by place name in alphabetical
order called: Czech Republic. 'Cisarske povinne otisky stabilního katastru Cech
(1824-1843)'

PRINZ FAMILY FROM Bohemia and Breslau,SILESIA. #austria-czech

celiamale@...
 

Two big obstabcles to successful research in Jewish Genealogy are name changes and migration. This
posting illustrates both obstacles and hopefully there is now a light at the end of the tunnel.

I received so many heart-warming messages after my last posting on the Sephardic PASTOR family >from
Moravia that I was determined to send you all another thank you posting.

Sadly, I will never be able to match the output and quality of my many postings to Jewishgen and this SIG
over the past few years but I will endeavour to stay mentally active in spite of my immense physical
handicaps. "Welcome Back" messages literally flooded in >from all over the world and I am truly grateful to
belong to this loving and appreciative SIG.

How many of us are really knowledgeable about the subject of the history and sovereignty of Silesia?
After reading this wiki account I could not give you a clear lecture on the subject excep it is obvious
that Silesia was a territory which many countries over the centuries including Poland, germany, Bohemia
and the Habsburg monarchy wished to control as Silesia had great strategic importance as well as an
abundance of valuable minerals and natural resources. See

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duchy_of_Upper_and_Lower_Silesia

The proximity to Bohemia suggests that there was a migration of families between these territories.
Indeed I have noted movement of some familes >from Silesia to Bohemia and vice versa in previous postings.

When Tom Heinersdorff came to visit me in hospital he immediately aroused my research interest when he
told me that the Heinersdorff family were >from Silesia and that their name was originally PRINZ,
as found in Silesian archival data. That is certainly an unusual and unexpected name change.

AFTER months in hospitalI I have just come home for the weekend and was keen to confirm my hunch that
the PRINZ family may have migrated >from Bohemia to Silesia before changing their name. So I went straight
to the 1793 Jewish census of Bohemia and looked up PRINZ but drew a blank. Ithen went to volume iv - the
Hradecky kraj Kreis {Koniggratzer kreis} which is closest to Silesia and thumbed through the pages.
Eureka I was rewarded on page 278 with Philip PRINZ single, an Instrukor {SIC} of young children living in
Dobritschan and gehoeren in Schutz nach Preslau {sich} he can be found in the index under Breslau and
Wroclow] but strangely not under the family name PRINZ. Could Philip possibly be an ancestor or relative
of Tom's?

Tom Now lives Iin the UK. and his CHAT family maternal side were >from Vienna Graz Budapest and
originally Moravia, Neu RAUSSNITZ Rousinov.

We have worked together on the interesting CHATs as well and a listing of shareholders of the CHAT
companies found in the Gasometer archives in Vienna, incidentally, a useful coomercial source I had not
used before, gave us valuable clues on CHAT relationships.

Tom certainly has enought data to produce a very handsome volume on his genealogy. I think we can
safely welcome him now as a true Bohemian-Moravian member of our sig or perhaps more
broadly as an embodiment of the erstwhile and huge and powerful Habsburg Empire before Gersig claims
him as a true pukka-German Silesian member of their SIG.

Celia Male London. U.K.

ps Thanks to the dozens who have wrItten to welcome me back. In time I will try as best as I can to reply
to each of you individually. Please be patient I have missed my research and all of you terribly but your
loving suppport has helped me through very difflicult times.
I feel truly blessed that i am a member of this 1081-strong family, many of whom I have been lucky
enough to have met in person. Has not a single member joimed us since I fell? That is strange.
Is 1,081 one of those magic numbers with an as yet unexplained mystical significance associated with our
geographic area?
Even before the advent of GENI I knew we were all inked together and now I know for sure as I have the
proof in your messages.

Six more short films that may be of interest to you.... #poland

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

There are now a total of ten short films of Tomek Wisniewski being shown at
the Museum of Family History. I have announced four so far, and six new ones
are ready for you to view. Most of them have interesting instrumental music
to go along with the film's scenes.

These new films include:

1. Of Bialystok, Poland:
--"The Kaufman Brothers", one of whom was Boris Kaufman, the
cinematographer for "Twelve Angry Men" and others. The brothers were all
natives of Bialystok.
--"A Yiddish Song in Bialystok." A large group gathers in Bialystok in
1940 to hear a couple sing what seems to be a Yiddish song. Can anyone
identify the song by name? If so, please contact me privately. More films of
Bialystok are to come, including a film about the Warner Brothers (also >from
Bialystok).

2. Of Zabludow, Poland:
--Two films of the Zabludow Synagogue, scans of photos of the interior
and exterior of the synagogue, cir 1927.

3. Of Kossovo, Belarus (pre-1939, Kosow Poleski, Poland):
--"Berteza Kartuzka: The Street That is No More, 1916"

4. Of Minsk, Belarus:
--"Jewish Minsk." While watching this film, you can imagine you are
walking or in a horse and buggy down the streets of Minsk as Tomek scans
across a few of his very old photographs of Minsk. Also photographs of the
synagogue complex and the Choral Synagogue.

You can access these films, as well as the previous films announced, on the
webpage I've created listing Tomek Wisniewski's films at
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/tomek/films.htm
Enjoy!
