TREUMANN - or varient spellings.... #germany

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Dear Friends,

I am Looking for siblings/descendants of siblings - of:-
Jakob TREUMANN - birth date unknown - died Aug. 1934 in Schwetzingen, Germany.

1st wife, forename unknown but surname was HIRSH - one child born 1891
called Lutzi, Lutzi married a Mr. POLLACK, family perished in the Shoah.

2nd wife - Mathilde HIRSH (sister of 1st wife) - birth date unknown - died
Dec 1925 in Konigsberg. Had 5 boys - born between 1894 and 1905 - Max,
Walter, Erich, Kurt and Martin - only Martin survived the Shoah. Max, Walter
and Erich were born in Jutrosin, Poznan, Poland. Martin was born 1905 in
Lautenberg, Germany.

3rd wife - Sophie nee HESS - died in the Shoah 1942. Before her marriage to
Jacob she was a widow having been married to a Mr. KINZ, they had a son
called Erich who's last known residence was in Holland.

It appears that Wanda TREUMANN the actress was married to a cousin called
Karl TREUMANN - who this cousin is descended >from is a mystery. Yad Vashem
records show a Karl TRAUMANN b 1882/41 - whether this is one and the same
person we do not know.

Martin's daughter is desperate to know if she has any living cousins in the
world - Jacob must have had siblings - any information on the family would
be so gratefully appreciated. Thank you.

Hello,

I consulted in the French National Archives several files >from the

and Historical Researches. The index of the articles is available at :

The review is consultable in several libraries in USA, in Israel or can be

These files >from Algerian consistories contain some valuable records such as

If you need more information, you can contact me privately.

My name is Shira Grieb. I have ancestors who came >from Algeria.
I am looking for religious documents >from the 1800s.
I know that on November 9, 1845, there were "consistoires" that were
created
in Algeria (in Algiers, Oran and Constantine).
Does anybdoy have any information on the archives of those institutions?
They did keep records since that was the point of their establishment.
I really want to find information about that. There must be something.
You can reply to me in English or in French.

Ralph Baer
 

While your Jakob TREUMANN (or TRAUMANN) of Schwetzingen does not currently
appear on my tree, I am familiar with at least two branches of this family
that married into my my family.

Lazarus Raphael TRAUMANN (23 February 1767 Schwetzingen - 13 September 1834),
wine trader and Gutsbesitzer (landowner), became on 9 November 1802 one of
the first two Jews to be granted full citizenship in Baden. He was married
to Rosette (Rosine) WOLF, a sister of one of my ancestors.
Although I know a lot about their descendants, it is far >from complete.

By any chance, do you know who Jakob's parents were?

I am also related to Lazarus's sister Jette (Judla) TRAUMANN (11 January
1760 Schwetzingen - 8 June 1843 Rohrbach bei Heidelberg) who was married
to Moses MAIER, a brother of another ancestor.

I seem to recall >from when I looked at Schwetzingen records that Lazarus
had at least one bother in Schwetzingen.

I have never seen the spelling TREUMANN for this family, but that does
not mean that it was not used.

Researchers interested in learning about a preservation project,
involving both documents and facilities, currently going on in the
Lviv Historical Archives under the guidance of director, Diana
Peltz, will be interested in reading this recent article in the
"Kyiv Post."

http://www.kyivpost.com/nation/26501/

This piece details how Ukraine’s oldest collection of archives has
finally received some of the attention it desperately needs, with
the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)
funding the lion’s share of a $105,000 project. This effort was
launched in 2005 by the US-Ukraine Foundation, a US-based NGO that
promotes democratic development, free-market reforms and human
rights in Ukraine, in cooperation with the the R’fa’aye-nu Society,
which has sought to retrieve and restore Jewish manuscripts in
Eastern Europe with the help of Christian churches.

Pittsburgh Jewish Newspaper Project Now Online #general

Robert Zavos <rzavos@...>
 

The first part of the Pittsburgh Jewish Newspaper Project (PJNP) is now
online and it is a truely amazing tool for Jewish genealogists with
Pittsburgh area roots. The link is on the Pittsburgh JGS website at
http://www.jewishgen.org/jgs-pittsburgh/ or go directly to the PJNP at
http://pjn.library.cmu.edu/.

You can currently search or browse >from 1902 to 1959. If you are searching,
try a surname and you will get a page reference and date for every page
where the name appears during the entire 58 years. Eventually the time
period will be 1895 to present. One click and you will be reading that page
from a scanned image. The image can be enlarged with one more click if
needed.

For the most part, the useful genealogy information will be announcements
such as births, bar mitzvahs, engagements, military service events, social
events, weddings, anniversaries, and obituaries. Many display ads are also
indexed. In the early days the Jewish Criterion covered all of Pennsylvania
and some border areas. By the 1920s it covered mostly the western third of
Pennsylvania.

To my knowledge this is the only major Jewish newspaper in he USA now
directly online with browsing and scanning capabilities for such a
significant historical period. The London Jewish Chronicle is the only
other similar project I know of anywhere and it is subscription based. The
Houston Jewish-Herald Voice has an onlne index to life events on Jewishgen,
but copies of the source articles must be ordered.

I have personally found signficant new family information in a few minutes
that had eluded me for several years. If anyone knows of similar projects I
think this message Board should be advised due to the significant genealogy
information that can be found. Perhaps other JGS groups may consider a
similar project in their cities.

WOLINSKI, Riana born 1932 ->Poland, Hungary, US #general

Sue Fifer <suef@...>
 

Three years ago I posted a message about the WOLINSKI family as I had
acquired a protected person passport relating to their time in Hungary, part
of which was spent with my partner's family in Mako followed by Budapest.

Riana was the daughter of the family. I had assumed that they had died,
despite having the Salvador passport, since the documentation ended up with
us and not with them. I have now learned that Riana at least went to the US
after the war as she was in correspondence for a time with someone in my
partner's home town. I have no idea if she married and what her name would
have become. I would be delighted if anyone who knew of her could put me in
touch. Her father's name was Artur, her mother Gizela and her brother
Stefan. If the brother survived he would presumably have kept the Wolinsky
name and might have anglicised his given name to Steven/Stephen. He was born
in 1934.

Please reply privately.

Slutsk, LDS film 2010468, & Vitaly Charny #general

Bob Kosovsky
 

(Those on the Belarus email list please forgive the duplication)

Hey folks,

I finally saw LDS film 2010468 - which is the film mentioned on the JewishGen
site devoted to the 1816/1818 census of Slutsk - and lists my surname -
presumably an ancestor. (I'll need a later census to confirm it.)

As Vitaly Charny (the person who created the list) told me, reading 19th
century Russian (and occasionally Belarussian and Polish, and even Hebrew)
handwriting can be a challenge, so I want to thank the many people who gave me
suggestions - and even images - of cursive Russian handwriting. It helps a
great deal, and thankfully, my surname is kind of distinctive so I think I
recognized it when it occurred (I found about 5 instances in various revision
lists).

Once I found my surname listed, I simply took it over to be copied. At the FHL
facility in Queens, NY (a short walk >from Mt. Zion cemetery) you can get
photocopies or digital scans >from the microfilm - nice!

At one point while I was in the Family History Library, I needed to refer to
the list on the JewishGen site -- and discovered that the JewishGen domain is
blocked by the Church!! So all of you people going to Utah - beware of not
having access. (Something which I find wonderfully amusing - but I digress.)

I do have a question about this wonderful film (which also includes revision
lists >from Igumen, Borisov and neighboring areas within the Slutsk uyezd).
Miriam Weiner's Routes to Roots Foundation database indicates which archival
materials in the National Historical Archives of Belarus contains relevant
items on Slutsk pertinent to Jews. She does not list the materials which are
on this film (series 333, folder 9, item 212).

So how did Vitaly know that there would be Jewish material on this film? In
fact, there's a lot of it. The material is all in ledger books which were
apparently bound together and filmed that way. Occasionally the Jewish
representatives have signed the initial pages of the revision lists in addition
to the census taker. In one case, it looked as if the entire congregation of
someplace signed their names in both Russian and Hebrew.

A very interesting experience - I intend to go back next week.
(Meanwhile others can look at the film while it's in Queens.)

And many thanks to Vitaly Charny, who has used his unique knowledge to give so
much to the rest of us.
