San Antonio Jewish Genealogical Society to meet 12/10 #general

Marion Hattenbach Bernstein
 

The next meeting of the San Antonio Jewish Genealogical Society will take
place on Sunday December 10th at 1:00 p.m. in the library of the Jewish
Community Center, 12500 NW Military Hwy.
Our featured speaker will be Mona Roodman who will show us various
scrapbooks and ways of preserving and presenting our family photos and
history. After the meeting, President Ed Henkin will lead a workshop for
paid up members of the SAJGS. He will examine census sheets >from the 1900,
1910, and 1920 censuses, so that researchers can see the genealogical
information that they contain. Those who are just beginning their research
will explore using the Soundex to find their family names in these
censuses. The January 2001 meeting will feature Rabbi Samuel M. Stahl who
will discuss the waves of Jewish immigration to the U.S.

l. Is Berdichev the same as Berdyczew, Ukraine?

2. Where is Lechowicz located? Not in my Hist. Atlas.

3. What is the significance of the London address: 27 Battya Gardens,
1903?

According to Dr. Prof. A. Newman, UK, this address occurs quite
regularly in records.

Thanks for the help,

Re: "Shtetle search: Moldetzne, Lithuania" #general

NFatouros@...
 

In his message of 11-30-00, Robert Filmore asked about a town called
"Moldetzne, Lithuania."

In Chester G. Cohen's "ShtetlFinder Gazetteer" there is an entry for a
"Molodetchno" or "Molodechno" which is northwest of Minsk and about
halfway between Vilna and Minsk.

The 1962 Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer says that Molodechno is 40 miles
north of Minsk and in 1931 had a population of 5,964. It was a rail
junction and agricultural center for grain and flax. People there milled
flour and preserved fruits. They also manufactured musical instruments. In
1793 it based >from Poland to Russia, went back to Poland in 1921 and was
ceded to the USSR in 1945. The oblast in which the town is located was
called Vileika oblast until 1944 when the administrative seat was
transferred >from the town of Vileika to Molodechno.

Binyamin Zeev #general

However, they don't normally go with Reuben (Jacob's eldest son)
but with Benjamin (Jacob's youngest son). "Binyamin Ze'ev" is a
common combination because the biblical text juxtaposes Binyamin
with Ze'ev in the phrase <Binyamin ze'ev yitraf> -- "Benjamin
is a ravenous wolf" (Genesis 49:27)
...and because in some circles it was in vogue to name after
Jabotinsky.

Town of White Church, Ukraine #general

I've heard that the family came >from a town whose name translates
to White Church. It was "supposedly" near Kiyev. Does anyone know
of this town and what its name is now?

MODERATOR NOTE: An archives search of the phrase " white then church "
(without the quotation marks) brings up several posts about this town.

Eisdorfer #hungary

Rhoda Miller <MillerR@...>
 

Dov Eisdorfer of Haifa, Israel has just self-published his one name study =93The
Eisdorfer Family Genealogy: the history of the family, its origin and roots.=94
This book is the result of years of extensive research in various archives
throughout Eastern Europe and the US. This work contains approximately 1200
names divided among 13 identified branches of the Eisdorfer name. The primary
towns >from which this family emerged are Eisdorf, Pasika, Suskov, Brod,
Ilonca, Munckas, Kis-Almas, Nyiraghaza, Kisvarda, Patrohr, Gegany and Ungvar
located in Hungary and the sub-Carpathian region that is currently in the
Ukraine.

Copies of this work are available in Hebrew and English and to date have been
placed in Yad Vashem and Beth Hatefusot.

I have no commercial interest in this work. As an Eisdorfer descendent, I
have worked extensively with him on this project, especially as pertains to
the US research. Dov does not have an e-mail address and so I serve as a
contact for further information.
