------------------------------------------------------
Denmark SIG is happy to announce a NEW EXCITING PROJECT:

Burials on Jewish cemeteries in Copenhagen, Denmark
1694 - 1915
for
JewishGen=92s Online Worldwide Burial Registry

--------------------------------------------------------

Elias Levin, a 91-years Dane, has given permission to the
Denmark SIG to digitize his four first books for the OWBR.

The four books cover the period 1694 - 1915. The persons
buried come >from most of Europe - some of the first
families were Sephardim - particularly in the first two
centuries, later (>from 1880) >from Eastern Europe.

The first Jews in Denmark had family ties with Jews in
other countries in Europe, and some settled in Denmark for
a while and then went back to where they came >from -- or
somewhere else.

from the mid-17th century and until the mid-19th century
Schlewsig-Holstein belonged to the Danish King (i.e. Denmark).

So even though you do not know of Danish ancestors, you might
find information pertaining to your families in the burial
registry.

Elias Levin, has since his return >from Theresienstadt
worked on photographing, transliterating, indexing and
publishing the tombstones on the Jewish cemeteries in
Copenhagen, Denmark.

This has till now resulted in five books:
1. "Den gamle j=F8diske begravelsesplads i M=F8llegade
1694-1994=94. (Vol. I & II). Copenhagen, 1994.
(Registry of burials on the old cemetery the
so-called Northern or Moellegade Cemetery).
2. =93J=F8diske Gravstene 1886-1915 p=E5 Mosaisk Vestre
Begravelsesplads=94 (Jewish tombstones 1886-1915
on Mosaisk Vestre Cemetery, Copenhagen, Denmark).
Copenhagen, 1986. Registry of all burials from
1886-1900 (Vol. I) and 1900-1915 (Vol. II) on
new cemetery (Mosaisk Vestre Cemetery)
3. "J=F8diske Gravstene 1991-1999 p=E5 Mosaisk Vestre
begravelsesplads=94 (Jewish tombstones 1991-1999 on
Mosaisk Vestre Cemetery, Copenhagen, Denmark).
Copenhagen, 2000. Registry of all burials from
1991-1998.


It is a work in progress as he is still working on the
project that he has taken upon himself. He is preparing
a new book on burials 1999 and 2000, and at the same time
he is trying to fill out the gap between 1915-1991. There
are published listings of the burials but not with photos
of the tombstones.

He is planning on publishing the listings with photos and
other genealogical information >from the vital records.

You can read more about the cemeteries in Copenhagen (and
see some photos) as well as listings of surnames of those
buried there on Denmark SIGs website

http://www.jewishgen.org/denmark

or go directly to the webpage for cemeteries in Copenhagen:

"Kolbisher Rebbe" ? #general

Babette C Bloch <bvcb@...>
 

My husband's grandfather attended a small synagogue approximately in
1937, in what was then known as the East Bronx, specifically on 151st
Street between Union and Tinton Avenues.

The rabbi there was referred to as the "Kolbisher Rebbe". He had a shul
and ran it with his brother and a son.

If anyone has any information on who this might be or whether the Rebbe
was >from Poland, etc., it would be of great interest to us.

Re: Digitalization of photo archive #general

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Hello Avrohom,

It all depends what you plan to do with the scanned images.For the
majority of printing applications 300 dpi is more then sufficient,
even if you use coated paper for printing. The rule of the thumb is
that the dpi number is about twice the line density. Coated papers
use 133 and 150 lpi, so 266 to 300 dpi will be great. Only very
sophisticated printings require higher resolutions then that. For ink
jet printing on common print paper 150 dpi will be good enough
(because such paper uses about 75-80 lpi). On glossy papers and ink
jet printing 150 dpi works well too, but eventually, to bring out
details, it's better to increase the dpi to 266-300.

As for color depth (number of simultaneous colors), 256 (8 bits
depth) is good enough for the majority of applications. Thousands of
colors (16 bits depth) is excellent. 32 bits depth (millions of
colors) is not necessary and a waste of precious filing space. The
same applies for gray scale: 64 or 128 grades of gray result in
excellent gray scale images. That's only 6 or 7 bits depth.

You are right about storing your images as TIFF (*.tif) files. That's
the best format for image fidelity. JEPG (*.jpg) is not good because
it looses details. JEPG is a destructive storage process. Worst yet
is GIF, which forces color reduction to a discrete palette of colors,
resulting in pixelization.

Any other concerns? Yes, keep your images as small as possible (in
bytes). Unless you plan to publish a MoMA Art Book, the rules above
will result in very good prints, now and in the future.

In all the "rules" above, I assumed that you will be storing/scanning
photographs. The story is different for line art, vector graphics and
digital illustrations.

BTW, for those who wish to publish images on the Web, please keep
them at 72 dpi. That's the normal resolution of any monitor.

good luck
Tom

Trying the back door research:DAVIS,GORDON,SWEET,MASON,ZOFNASS,WEINSTEIN. #general

Carol Edan <caroled@...>
 

Shalom,

Well if you can't find the front door maybe you can get in through the back.

I am up a wall with both my PRICE and ARONSON lines. I am trying with no
success to find my grandparents siblings. Most were too old to be on SSDI
so I decided to try The Boston Jewish Adovate Obituary database. Most of
the family lived in Boston area.

The given names for my ARONSON lines are Phillip,Mathew,Sidney,Helen.
Here are some of the surnames connected with possible extended family.
DAVIS,GORDON,SWEET,MASON,ZOFNASS,WEINSTEIN.

I did some seraches on JGFF for some of the less common names but with
names like GORDON(316 hits) contacting each one mission impossible. Did
send to the 5 MASONS on the list and will do the same for other smaller
lists.

So if any of you that are researching these surnames have any connection
with ARONSON preferably with given names Phillip,Mathew,Sidney,Helen we
may have some connection and I may find my grandparents siblings.

Wishing you all a SHANA TOVA

A search for cousins #hungary

robert b hanscom <rodihan@...>
 

My grandmother, Charlotte TAUBER was b. in Drietoma, Trencin megye,
Hungary (now Slovakia) in 1889 and emigrated with her parents [Simon and
Adella (TESCHNER) TAUBER] to New York City in 1897. In the process of
tracing her ancestry over the last two years, I've discovered that she
had at least 44 first cousins. A third of these cousins also came to the
U.S. and I've made contact with their descendants. But I'm now
interested in tracking down the fates of the cousins who remained in
Europe.

Does anyone have any knowledge of the following people/families?

Children of my grandmother's uncle, Leopold TESCHNER (1843-1905):
* Adele (TESCHNER) DIAMONT, b. Vag Besztercze, Trencin megye [now
Povazska Bystrica, Slovakia], 4 Feb. 1865. She m. Salomon DIAMONT on 26
Aug. 1888 and had one dau., Margit, b. 14 Feb. 1889. No further
information.
* Emilie TESCHNER, b. Vag Besztercze, 26 April 1870. She is said to have
married, but I have no information on the identity of her husband.
* Kalman TESCHNER, b. Vag Besztercze, 14 May 1872.
* Irma (TESCHNER) BAUMOHL, b. Vag Besztercze, 16 October 1874. She m.
Rudolf BAUMOHL on 17 Jan. 1897. I've discovered a list which indicates
that two of her sons, Artur and Marcel BAUMOHL, perished in a
concentration camp. Would like to learn more about this family...

Children of my grandmother's aunt, Rosa (TESCHNER) BRATTMAN (1845-1891):
* Regi BRATTMAN, b. Vag Besztercze, 18 October 1867, and her sister, Ida
BRATTMAN, b. 26 October 1876. Both are said to have married, but I don't
know the identities of their husbands. One of them may have married an
ELENCZWEIG.
* Julius BRATTMAN, b. Vag Besztercze, 5 Aug. 1872, d. in Zilinia, 11 Oct.
1929. I have made contact with descendants of his who live in Chicago
and Israel, but am interested in discovering the fates of his two eldest
sons, Arthur BRATTMAN, b. 1898, and Rezso Sandor [Alexander] BRATTMAN, b.
1899.
* Wilhelm BRATTMAN, b. Vag Besztercze, 11 Dec. 1880, d. in Budapest, 28
Oct. 1915. I believe he may have been married and perhaps had children.


Children of my grandmother's aunt, Johanna (TAUBER) GLASEL (1835-1866):
* Rosalia /"Sali" (GLASEL) BERGER, b. Varin, Trencin megye [now
Slovakia], 1864. She m. Jacob Herman BERGER, b. c1857, in Trencin, 26
February 1884. No further information.
* Caecilie (GLASEL) SINGER, b. Varin, 1866, d. in Budapest between 1945
and 1950. She m. in Trencin, 31 Mar. 1891, David SINGER >from Myava. He
d. in a concentration camp; she survived. I'm in contact with
descendants of Caecilie's son, Ludwig (1904-1934), but am interested in
tracking descendants of her daughter, Jeanette /"Jenny" (SINGER) SPITZER
(1896-1975) of Budapest. Jenny had two sons, Robert and Gabriel, both of
whom vanished post-World War II.


Children of my grandmother's aunt, Katharina (TAUBER) ZERKOWITZ
[Czerkowicz] (1854-1926) of Budapest:
* Frieda ZERKOWITZ, b. Budapest, 7 March 1885, living in Budapest, 1950;
her sister, Aranka ZERKOWITZ, b. Budapest, 9 August 1891; and another
sister, Jozefa ZERKOWITZ, b. Budapest, 25 Nov. 1894, d. Budapest, 12

perished at Auschwitz, 1944.

Hungary SIG #Hungary A search for cousins #hungary

robert b hanscom <rodihan@...>
 

My grandmother, Charlotte TAUBER was b. in Drietoma, Trencin megye,
Hungary (now Slovakia) in 1889 and emigrated with her parents [Simon and
Adella (TESCHNER) TAUBER] to New York City in 1897. In the process of
tracing her ancestry over the last two years, I've discovered that she
had at least 44 first cousins. A third of these cousins also came to the
U.S. and I've made contact with their descendants. But I'm now
interested in tracking down the fates of the cousins who remained in
Europe.

Does anyone have any knowledge of the following people/families?

Children of my grandmother's uncle, Leopold TESCHNER (1843-1905):
* Adele (TESCHNER) DIAMONT, b. Vag Besztercze, Trencin megye [now
Povazska Bystrica, Slovakia], 4 Feb. 1865. She m. Salomon DIAMONT on 26
Aug. 1888 and had one dau., Margit, b. 14 Feb. 1889. No further
information.
* Emilie TESCHNER, b. Vag Besztercze, 26 April 1870. She is said to have
married, but I have no information on the identity of her husband.
* Kalman TESCHNER, b. Vag Besztercze, 14 May 1872.
* Irma (TESCHNER) BAUMOHL, b. Vag Besztercze, 16 October 1874. She m.
Rudolf BAUMOHL on 17 Jan. 1897. I've discovered a list which indicates
that two of her sons, Artur and Marcel BAUMOHL, perished in a
concentration camp. Would like to learn more about this family...

Children of my grandmother's aunt, Rosa (TESCHNER) BRATTMAN (1845-1891):
* Regi BRATTMAN, b. Vag Besztercze, 18 October 1867, and her sister, Ida
BRATTMAN, b. 26 October 1876. Both are said to have married, but I don't
know the identities of their husbands. One of them may have married an
ELENCZWEIG.
* Julius BRATTMAN, b. Vag Besztercze, 5 Aug. 1872, d. in Zilinia, 11 Oct.
1929. I have made contact with descendants of his who live in Chicago
and Israel, but am interested in discovering the fates of his two eldest
sons, Arthur BRATTMAN, b. 1898, and Rezso Sandor [Alexander] BRATTMAN, b.
1899.
* Wilhelm BRATTMAN, b. Vag Besztercze, 11 Dec. 1880, d. in Budapest, 28
Oct. 1915. I believe he may have been married and perhaps had children.


Children of my grandmother's aunt, Johanna (TAUBER) GLASEL (1835-1866):
* Rosalia /"Sali" (GLASEL) BERGER, b. Varin, Trencin megye [now
Slovakia], 1864. She m. Jacob Herman BERGER, b. c1857, in Trencin, 26
February 1884. No further information.
* Caecilie (GLASEL) SINGER, b. Varin, 1866, d. in Budapest between 1945
and 1950. She m. in Trencin, 31 Mar. 1891, David SINGER >from Myava. He
d. in a concentration camp; she survived. I'm in contact with
descendants of Caecilie's son, Ludwig (1904-1934), but am interested in
tracking descendants of her daughter, Jeanette /"Jenny" (SINGER) SPITZER
(1896-1975) of Budapest. Jenny had two sons, Robert and Gabriel, both of
whom vanished post-World War II.


Children of my grandmother's aunt, Katharina (TAUBER) ZERKOWITZ
[Czerkowicz] (1854-1926) of Budapest:
* Frieda ZERKOWITZ, b. Budapest, 7 March 1885, living in Budapest, 1950;
her sister, Aranka ZERKOWITZ, b. Budapest, 9 August 1891; and another
sister, Jozefa ZERKOWITZ, b. Budapest, 25 Nov. 1894, d. Budapest, 12
August 1959. A fourth sister, Roza ZERKOWITZ, b. Budapest, 7 Feb. 1888,
perished at Auschwitz, 1944.
* Dr. Leopold ZERKOWITZ, brother of the four sisters, b. Budapest, 14
December 1889, possibly died at Auschwitz as well. He is said to have
had one daughter who was a ballet dancer in Budapest.

Burial Registry - Copenhagen, Denmark #yizkorbooks

Harriet Brown <hnbrown@...>
 

This just in, everyone. Enjoy!

Denmark SIG is happy to announce a NEW EXCITING PROJECT:

Burials on Jewish cemeteries in Copenhagen, Denmark
1694 - 1915
for
JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry

--------------------------------------------------------

Elias Levin, a 91-year-old Dane, has given permission to the
Denmark SIG to digitize his four first books for the OWBR.

The four books cover the period 1694 - 1915. The persons
buried come >from most of Europe - some of the first
families were Sephardim - particularly in the first two
centuries, later (>from 1880) >from Eastern Europe.

The first Jews in Denmark had family ties with Jews in
other countries in Europe, and some settled in Denmark for
a while and then went back to where they came >from -- or
somewhere else.

from the mid-17th century and until the mid-19th century
Schlewsig-Holstein belonged to the Danish King (i.e. Denmark).

So even though you do not know of Danish ancestors, you might
find information pertaining to your families in the burial
registry.

Elias Levin, has since his return >from Theresienstadt
worked on photographing, transliterating, indexing and
publishing the tombstones on the Jewish cemeteries in
Copenhagen, Denmark.

This has till now resulted in five books:
1. "Den gamle j=F8diske begravelsesplads i M=F8llegade
1694-1994=94. (Vol. I & II). Copenhagen, 1994.
(Registry of burials on the old cemetery the
so-called Northern or Moellegade Cemetery).
2. =93J=F8diske Gravstene 1886-1915 p=E5 Mosaisk Vestre
Begravelsesplads=94 (Jewish tombstones 1886-1915
on Mosaisk Vestre Cemetery, Copenhagen, Denmark).
Copenhagen, 1986. Registry of all burials from
1886-1900 (Vol. I) and 1900-1915 (Vol. II) on
new cemetery (Mosaisk Vestre Cemetery)
3. "J=F8diske Gravstene 1991-1999 p=E5 Mosaisk Vestre
begravelsesplads=94 (Jewish tombstones 1991-1999 on
Mosaisk Vestre Cemetery, Copenhagen, Denmark).
Copenhagen, 2000. Registry of all burials from
1991-1998.


It is a work in progress as he is still working on the
project that he has taken upon himself. He is preparing
a new book on burials 1999 and 2000, and at the same time
he is trying to fill out the gap between 1915-1991. There
are published listings of the burials but not with photos
of the tombstones.

He is planning on publishing the listings with photos and
other genealogical information >from the vital records.

You can read more about the cemeteries in Copenhagen (and
see some photos) as well as listings of surnames of those
buried there on Denmark SIGs website

http://www.jewishgen.org/denmark

or go directly to the webpage for cemeteries in Copenhagen:
