Intro; STRAUS, KAHN, HIRSCH, ROOS families from the Pfalz #germany

Peter Straus
 

Greetings!

I've been enrolled in JewishGen for many years now, and have subscribed to
GerSIG since last Summer, but have not posted until now. I've been
off-and-on investigating my family's origin for 50 years--most of my
life--but more seriously the past 20 years or so. I would characterize
myself as somewhere between intermediate and advanced as a researcher, hail
from New York but now live in San Francisco, and speak English with a
moderate facility in German. I'd say I'm a fairly advanced computer user,
and extensive Internet user. My native genealogy program is WFT, I have
over 2000 individuals in my primary file going back to the early 1800s on
many strands, a few earlier. My JGFF ID is 71145. Whew; so much for intro.

My family on both sides hails >from the Pfalz, but (apart >from where the
families crossed) is much better documented on my mother's side than my
father's. My maternal tree is replete with the names LOEB, BRUECK,
STERNHEIMER, WEISS, BAER, KAHN, KAUFMANN--and STRAUS--among others. (The
Sternheimers--but not [yet] the Baers--have a connection to the families of
frequent and recent contributor Ralph Baer; the KAUFMANNs are the same clan
as is tied to the Pittsburgh department strores, etc.)

The biggest mysteries of my family are on my father's maternal line, where
the tree goes back only to great grandparents Adolf KAHN and Sophie HIRSCH.
(My father's paternal lineage folds back into my mother's.) Adolf KAHN was
born 25 Dec 1848 and died 25 Feb 1923; his bride Sophie HIRSCH was born 29
Apr 1854 and died 13 Nov 1923.

While I don't know where they were born or died, most or all of their children,
all girls, Martha, Kathinka, Selma, Getty and Johanna (Jenny), were born
in Limburg-an-der-Lahn.

Martha married Josef STRAUS of Goellheim, and then lived in Nierstein-am-Rhein
(it is possible their parents and siblings had also moved to Nierstein), and
eventually emigrated to New York.

I would greatly appreciate any knowledge or insights GerSIGgers may have into
the families of Adolf and/or Sophie.
Listing on the JewishGen site has failed to turn up any leads.

My second most important loose end concerns my earliest known STRAUS, Isaak
(or Eisek), born 1760, who died in Goellheim in 1840 and was married to
Regina ROOS of Offenbach-am-Glan. They and their descendents remained in
Goellheim about 150 years until Josef and his brothers left. I've tried to
track various ROOS leads but have failed to connect any to Regina.

Any assistance >from the GerSIG community would be most appreciated.

(Parenthetically, the recent discussion of river drownings reminded me of
Moses ABRAHAM, an ancestor of those STERNHEIMERs, who didn't drown, but died
when he broke his neck, as well as the neck of his horse, when the horse
stumbled while crossing a pontoon bridge over the Rhein. Proximity to
rivers seems to have been a precarious proposition back then, bridge or no
bridge. And coincidentally a greeting to Renee Stern Steinig--a high school
classmate--whose post appeared right below one of the drowning-thread
entries the other day. A tight community GerSIG appears to be!)

Yizkor Book Project, March 2012 #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Numerically wise and on the surface, the Yizkor book activities during March
seem a little quieter than usual, however volume-wise, this month saw
considerable amounts of material being added to various projects. As a
result, I would like to send out a number of thank-yous to the people behind
some of the March additions.

- This month no fewer than five necrologies were added - Capresti, Moldova;
Csenger, Hungary; Jadow, Poland; Korets, Ukraine; Luninyets, Belarus; and I
would like to thank Shalom Bronstein, Haim Sidor and Yefim Kogan for the
painstaking efforts they put into preparing them as accurately as possible.
- I would also like to thank Yefim Kogan, the Bessarabia SIG Coordinator,
for his encouragement and assistance in pushing forward the translation of
Yizkor books >from the Bessarabian region which contain so much un-tapped
information about the communities there
- This month saw the addition of the Vishnevets, Ukraine book which has been
translated and will be completely uploaded to the Yizkor Book Project over
the coming months. My sincere thanks go out to the people behind this
remarkable effort - Ron Doctor, Ellen Garshick and Sara Mages and for Ron
and Ellen's involvement in organization of the translation of other
Ukrainian Yizkor books.
- A grateful thank you goes out to Debby Applegate for the numerous
translations that she kindly donated to the Ivanava, Belarus (Yanow near
Pinsk) Yizkor book.

I assume that this report finds many of you presently involved in

that come before Pesach and the seder. Since it seems that you've taken a
break to read this, while I have your attention I would like to wish all of
you and your families a very happy and memorable Pesach.

Pesach Sameach,

Shalom,

Numerically wise and on the surface, the Yizkor book activities during March
seem a little quieter than usual, however volume-wise, this month saw
considerable amounts of material being added to various projects. As a
result, I would like to send out a number of thank-yous to the people behind
some of the March additions.

- This month no fewer than five necrologies were added - Capresti, Moldova;
Csenger, Hungary; Jadow, Poland; Korets, Ukraine; Luninyets, Belarus; and I
would like to thank Shalom Bronstein, Haim Sidor and Yefim Kogan for the
painstaking efforts they put into preparing them as accurately as possible.
- I would also like to thank Yefim Kogan, the Bessarabia SIG Coordinator,
for his encouragement and assistance in pushing forward the translation of
Yizkor books >from the Bessarabian region which contain so much un-tapped
information about the communities there
- This month saw the addition of the Vishnevets, Ukraine book which has been
translated and will be completely uploaded to the Yizkor Book Project over
the coming months. My sincere thanks go out to the people behind this
remarkable effort - Ron Doctor, Ellen Garshick and Sara Mages and for Ron
and Ellen's involvement in organization of the translation of other
Ukrainian Yizkor books.
- A grateful thank you goes out to Debby Applegate for the numerous
translations that she kindly donated to the Ivanava, Belarus (Yanow near
Pinsk) Yizkor book.
- A special thank you goes out to Joyce Field, former Yizkor Book Project
Manager, for compiling a very readable history of the Yizkor Book Project
which is now online and there for your enlightenment at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/YB_History.html

Other than that, some great news - Joel Alpert, the coordinator of the
Yizkor Books in Print Project has informed me that there are now five
English Yizkor books that are available for purchase at "Amazon" and a
further three will be available shortly. Details of these books, where they
can be purchased and other information on this project can be found at:

Yizkor Book Project, March 2012 #lithuania

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Numerically wise and on the surface, the Yizkor book activities during March
seem a little quieter than usual, however volume-wise, this month saw
considerable amounts of material being added to various projects. As a
result, I would like to send out a number of thank-yous to the people behind
some of the March additions.

- This month no fewer than five necrologies were added - Capresti, Moldova;
Csenger, Hungary; Jadow, Poland; Korets, Ukraine; Luninyets, Belarus; and I
would like to thank Shalom Bronstein, Haim Sidor and Yefim Kogan for the
painstaking efforts they put into preparing them as accurately as possible.
- I would also like to thank Yefim Kogan, the Bessarabia SIG Coordinator,
for his encouragement and assistance in pushing forward the translation of
Yizkor books >from the Bessarabian region which contain so much un-tapped
information about the communities there
- This month saw the addition of the Vishnevets, Ukraine book which has been
translated and will be completely uploaded to the Yizkor Book Project over
the coming months. My sincere thanks go out to the people behind this
remarkable effort - Ron Doctor, Ellen Garshick and Sara Mages and for Ron
and Ellen's involvement in organization of the translation of other
Ukrainian Yizkor books.
- A grateful thank you goes out to Debby Applegate for the numerous
translations that she kindly donated to the Ivanava, Belarus (Yanow near
Pinsk) Yizkor book.
- A special thank you goes out to Joyce Field, former Yizkor Book Project
Manager, for compiling a very readable history of the Yizkor Book Project
which is now online and there for your enlightenment at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/YB_History.html

Other than that, some great news - Joel Alpert, the coordinator of the
Yizkor Books in Print Project has informed me that there are now five
English Yizkor books that are available for purchase at "Amazon" and a
further three will be available shortly. Details of these books, where they

that come before Pesach and the seder. Since it seems that you've taken a
break to read this, while I have your attention I would like to wish all of
you and your families a very happy and memorable Pesach.

Austria - maybe 1915-1920.

Schulim Schachter - b.1865 in Touste, Galicia d. 1934 (1937?) in Vienna.
Deborah Schachter - b.1873 d. 1930 (1934?) in Vienna. Maiden name –
Jackl. Parents' names – Itzchak & Rosa.

The couple had 15 children. We known about :

Sara (Sally) Fink 1892-?

Marcus Schaechter 1896-1956
Leon Schaechter 1898-1963
Laura (Lea) Gelbard 1906-1982

Unknown:
Joseph Schachter - found a record in Vienna's cemetery about a Joseph
who died age 22. Maybe it's him.
Jacob Schachter

I have 2 birth certificates with a stamp Touste and it seems that it
mean the smaller Touste.

Please remember that all this month's additions and updates have been
flagged at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html to make it easy
to find them.

I assume that this report finds many of you presently involved in
"knaidlach" rolling, "chametz" searching out and all the myriad activities
that come before Pesach and the seder. Since it seems that you've taken a
break to read this, while I have your attention I would like to wish all of
you and your families a very happy and memorable Pesach.

Pesach Sameach,

Shalom,

Numerically wise and on the surface, the Yizkor book activities during March
seem a little quieter than usual, however volume-wise, this month saw
considerable amounts of material being added to various projects. As a
result, I would like to send out a number of thank-yous to the people behind
some of the March additions.

- This month no fewer than five necrologies were added - Capresti, Moldova;
Csenger, Hungary; Jadow, Poland; Korets, Ukraine; Luninyets, Belarus; and I
would like to thank Shalom Bronstein, Haim Sidor and Yefim Kogan for the
painstaking efforts they put into preparing them as accurately as possible.
- I would also like to thank Yefim Kogan, the Bessarabia SIG Coordinator,
for his encouragement and assistance in pushing forward the translation of
Yizkor books >from the Bessarabian region which contain so much un-tapped
information about the communities there
- This month saw the addition of the Vishnevets, Ukraine book which has been
translated and will be completely uploaded to the Yizkor Book Project over
the coming months. My sincere thanks go out to the people behind this
remarkable effort - Ron Doctor, Ellen Garshick and Sara Mages and for Ron
and Ellen's involvement in organization of the translation of other
Ukrainian Yizkor books.
- A grateful thank you goes out to Debby Applegate for the numerous
translations that she kindly donated to the Ivanava, Belarus (Yanow near
Pinsk) Yizkor book.
- A special thank you goes out to Joyce Field, former Yizkor Book Project
Manager, for compiling a very readable history of the Yizkor Book Project
which is now online and there for your enlightenment at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/YB_History.html

Other than that, some great news - Joel Alpert, the coordinator of the
Yizkor Books in Print Project has informed me that there are now five
English Yizkor books that are available for purchase at "Amazon" and a
further three will be available shortly. Details of these books, where they
can be purchased and other information on this project can be found at:

Re: The Use of "Jr." by Jews #general

Roger Lustig
 

Dear Meron:

The Jewish-humor response to your question is simply: "who says he
did?" It's the Hebrew name that matters. Chaim and Hirsch, among other
names, can both be Harry. (In my family, so could Mordechai and
Nathanael, but that's another story.)

Good luck with your search!
