Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive # 86 #germany

Ernest Kallmann
 

Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive, Paris Issue 86, just published. Summary:

**Our Society.
Forthcoming meetings and activities in Paris and in our regional groups.
Report about the last meeting of the Alsace SIG, a visit to Petite
Alsace, a hamlet in the 13th Paris section, by Eliane Roos-Schuhl and
Bernard Lyon-Caen.
Conference by Felix Perez on our regular Monday meetings about the
sociology of the Jews accepted at Ecole Polytechnique >from 1794 to 1927.

**Miscellaneous.
The Jews in Tripoli at the eve of colonization (1911).

French readers generally know little about Libya and its capital
Tripoli, which was colonized by Italy opposite to Tunisia, Algeria and
Morocco, the other countries of /Maghreb/, Northwest Africa. Written
sources, even in Italian, are sparse. In order to bridge this gap,
Jacques TaIeb reverts to a chronicle in Hebrew by Mordekhay Cohen, a well-known
writer. His paper is built around two themes: demography and onomastics.

Alsatian given names: Schlumen, Heymann, Eitzig, Mayer, Scheinel,
Marianne, Claire and all others.

Eliane Roos-Schuhl exploits a wedding agreement executed in 1771 in
Haguenau and deposited at the Archives Departementales du Bas-Rhin in
Strasbourg. It is mentioned in /Memoire Juive en //Alsace/, by
Andre-Aaron Fraenckel. She analyzes some usual equivalences between
Ashkenazi given names in Alsace and thereupon among descendants of
Alsace and Lorraine families widely scattered >from the 19th century onward.

**Families
The daughters of Lucie Lang or my "cousin" Maurice Leblanc.

Andree Lanz-Margolin has discovered an amusing "relationship" with
Maurice Leblanc. Leblanc has become mainly famous as the author of
detective stories featuring Arsene Lupin, the "gentleman burglar".
Leblanc and Lupin are as familiar to French readers as Agatha Christie
and Hercule Poirot, her Belgian detective. The genealogical
demonstration is worth the visit.

Alexandre, a Jew >from Wittersheim.

Laurent Kassel devotes this article to one of his forebears, Alexandre,
a figure in the Jewish community of Wittersheim (Bas-Rhin) during the
second half of the 18th century. He follows up the recurrence of this
given name along his descendants. The same person is mentioned by
Pierre-Andre Meyer in his article about the Jewish origins of the French
President Alexandre Millerand (Issue 80 of this Revue). The author
resorts to /Memoire Juive en Alsace/, by Andre-Aaron Fraenckel, the 1784
Census of the Jews in Alsace, the 1808 name adoption registers of the
Jews and eventually the civil records covering all French nationals since 1792.

**Documentation

An encyclopedic monograph by Eve-Line Blum-Cherchevsky
/Nous sommes 900 Francais/, in 6 volumes, 1999-2006, Publisher : the
author.

The author has labored over 10 years on the 2159 pages of this work. It
is a memorial for the 878 deportees of convoy 73, which left Drancy on
May 15, 1944 toward the Baltic States. The author's efforts and research
have found 315 relatives of the victims, one by one; their co-operation
was essential to what is now a collective production. Each volume is
made of two parts, providing an encyclopedic aspect: the first part
documents the history of convoy 73 and also about deportation >from a
broader point of view; the second part devotes each deportee an
individual section. The book is reviewed in detail by Basile Ginger on page 23.

Is it Unser or is it Felix Adler? #germany

Elizabeth Levy <levyliz@...>
 

Dear Friends,

For those of you who remember the photo of my dear friend, Unser
Blumengarten (and for those of you who don't) - The man in the photo was
identified as Felix Adler. Apparently a friend of the family.

He must have lived in NY City at 480 Park Avenue in 1938.

If anyone thinks that he is related to them, I'll be happy to send you the
photo.

If not, maybe I should frame the photo of Unser Blumentgarten. Every time I
see it it makes me smile!

Elizabeth Levy Mevassaret Zion, Israel <levyliz@smile.net.il>

SIG Archive search engine and the separate JewishGen Forum Archive Search

Politechnika Warszawska students in 1936/1937 #warsaw #poland

The academic plan for the Politechnika Warszawska >from 1937/1938 can be
viewed on the Warsaw University of Technology Digital Library's website at
http://bcpw.bg.pw.edu.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=512. Images 91-96 seem to
contain a list of 386 students >from the academic year 1936/1937, among them
several dozen with clearly Jewish given names. Because it is not possible
to determine Jewishness definitively >from given names, I have copied below
all of the surnames >from this list (as extracted by optical character
recognition, so there could be errors, though the accuracy is extremely
high).

LICHTBLAU / GROSSMAN from Breslau #germany

Cathy G. <cag3@...>
 

Dear gersig list,
I have the following information for my gg grandmother: Hedwig M. LICHTBLAU
(or other spelling) b. 1861 >from Breslau, Germany (or Ransern, now Redzin,
Poland). One of 13 children, I believe, she came to the US (NY) in 1875 with
her sister Agnes LICHTBLAU b. 1857 (found the passenger info on Ancestry.com).

My great aunt said that her parents may have been Johanna and Thomas.
Other related names are JOSCH and GROSHNAN or GROSSMAN, but I'm not sure how
[related].
from a commercial website I find her married by 1900 to Simon KROL, also from
Germany, and that all agrees with what I've been told.

I have already posted some of this info. on Jewishgen and have looked there
extensively. I also had a two week trial with a fee-based website and pretty much
did as much as I could do w.r.t. US records.

I've looked like crazy on familyseach.org but can't find her birth anywhere.
If she was Jewish and then was baptised, would her first name have changed?
I realize it may be Jadwiga, Hedwick, or Hedwiga. Also, if her father's name,
as far as I know (no records of it, just what I heard) was Thomas, is it likely
that it was really Tomas or Tomasz? Thanks!

German SIG #Germany LICHTBLAU / GROSSMAN from Breslau #germany

Cathy G. <cag3@...>
 

Dear gersig list,
I have the following information for my gg grandmother: Hedwig M. LICHTBLAU
(or other spelling) b. 1861 >from Breslau, Germany (or Ransern, now Redzin,
Poland). One of 13 children, I believe, she came to the US (NY) in 1875 with
her sister Agnes LICHTBLAU b. 1857 (found the passenger info on Ancestry.com).

My great aunt said that her parents may have been Johanna and Thomas.
Other related names are JOSCH and GROSHNAN or GROSSMAN, but I'm not sure how
[related].
from a commercial website I find her married by 1900 to Simon KROL, also from
Germany, and that all agrees with what I've been told.

Researching descendants of Hans Harold and Jean WESSELY #germany

Oliver Bryk <oliverbryk@...>
 

I am researching descendants of my relatives Hugo WESSELY and his wife
Martha nee BYRK, both born in Vienna in the 1870s. Hugo was affiliated with
E. Braun & Co., fine linens, in Vienna and Berlin, and possibly in New York
after 1936. They are listed in the SSDI, as are their son Hans Harold (died
in 1985) and his wife Jean (died in 1971) who also lived in New York City.
I would appreciate any leads to descendants of this WESSELY family. (WESSELY
is a fairly common name in Vienna.)

Yiddish conference in Buenos Aires #yiddish

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings,

I received notice of a Yiddish conference to be held in the National Library
in Buenos Aires on September 18-21, 2006, and I thought I'd share it with
you. For those of you living in Argentina, know someone who is living there,
or will be visiting there at the time of the conference, it might be worth
attending. The invitation and program is on my website at
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/y-events-buenos-aires.htm. I know nothing of
the event other than what you will see yourself on this particular web page.
It does seem very interesting though. If anyone does plan to attend, please
let me know.

Best,

R' Moshe SOLOVEICHIK, Rosh Yeshiva Suwalki #rabbinic

Stephen Denker
 

In 2003 there was a RavSIG posting about Rabbi Moshe SOLOVEICHIK,
head of the Great Yeshiva of Suwalki. On page 120 of the Suwalki
Yizkor Book there is this passage: "Rabbi Moshe son of Rabbi Yaakov
SOLOVEICHIK, son-in-law of the elder of the religious court judge
Rabbi Naftali PRENDEL, was active in community work in Suwalk. He
died in Gottingen in 1896." Photographs of his gravestone do not
say "HaLevi" after his name on the stone. The Brisker SOLOVEICHIK
rabbinic family members are Leviim and that fact was invariably
given as an integral part of their name on title pages of their
publications, gravestones, etc.

As far as I know, although there are Brisker rabbis named Moshe and
Yaakov, there is no Moshe son of Yaacov and he is not mentioned in
any Brisker SOLOVEICHIK biography.

So Rabbi Moshe ben Yaakov SOLOVEITCHIK, a Yisroel and not a Levi,
presumably was of a different rabbinic SOLOVEITCHIK family than the
famous Brisk rabbinic dynasty.

I would appreciate any information about this rabbinic SOLOVEITCHIK
family. My great grandmother, born 1841, was a SOLOVEITCHIK. I am
unsure if she was a Levi or a Yisroel.
