Rashi's brother #rabbinic

Claire Sztern <claire.sztern@...>
 

Hi!

I'm looking for infos about Shimon, the brother of Rashi. I've seen
his name several times, but never any detail. Did he live a very
ordinary life? Did he die young? I don't know... I would be
interested to know though!

I have done various searches via the internet and I have drawn a blank.

I did a very quick google search using the terms "Kitchener Kent Jews"
and almost instantly turned up:

http://www.archives.lib.soton.ac.uk/guide/MS116-1-25.shtml

where it says that in the Special Collections of the University of
Southhampton there are copies of the "Kitcherner Camp Review," the Journal
of the Kitchener Camp for Refugees at Richborough, near Sandwich, Kent,
March-November 1939.

The listings at the above Southampton Library's special collections website
also show that there are quite a few documents, letters, etc., concerning
Jews, although the entry for the Kitchchener camp doesn't specify "Jews"
but only "refugees."

I attended Southampton University and they host the Parkes Library which is
a library (and institute) containing collections of Jewish interest
http://www.parkes.soton.ac.uk/welcome.htm

It would seem that the Kitchener camp papers are located in the main
Library.

Incidentally I was a resident of Montefiore House, named not after Sir Moses
M but Claude Montefiore who was an early Principal.

I found out recently that the opposite building was the home of Samuel
Montagu (later Lord Swaythling) who founded the Federation of Synagogues.

the Ukranian town of Berdichev.)

Czar's Army... #general

This might not be directly applicable, but everyone should be aware that
there is a book at the Jewish History Library titled "Jews in the Army". It is in
the Russian language and it lists the Russian Jews who died in the
Russo-Japanese War of 1905. I don't know if it also
lists those who survived the war because that was not the focus of my
research.

Outbound Shipping Manifest #general

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

Hello all;

I have a relative who I know made a trip back to Europe some years after
coming to the US.

I have a photograph showing this relative on board the SS Grosser Kurfurst
of Bremen.Writing on the photograph indicates the photo was taken on 17 June
1908.

I know this same relative arrived via Ellis island on 15 September 1908
(different ship). I have accessed the shipping manifest >from Ellis island,
but there is no information as to where she had been; it merely states her
name, age and the fact that she was a US citizen.

I'm hoping that the shipping manifest for the trip >from the US to Europe
might show her intended destination. Would anyone know where I would find
the shipping manifest for a trip *from* the US to Europe? Would it likely show
destination?

I have checked, and she is not in the index to passports, so she traveled
without one.

Thanks for the help.

community names on the EIDB #general

Joseph Fibel <JFibel@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Barbara Zimmer mentions two different spellings >from her relative's Arrival
Manifests aken >from the Ellis Island Data Base. The spellings of the names was
one of the questions the interrogators did ask at Ellis sland and other entry
ports.

A couple of years ago one of my wife's landslayt,Judy Baston, extracted and
downloaded >from the EIDB the names of all immigrants >from the town of Eishishok
(in Lithuania).
There were 450 of them. I was interested in how the immigrants spelled this
community's name so I made a spread sheet of them with arrival dates. There were
105 different spellings of Eishishok. This name was spelled beginning with every
vowel of the alphabet, a,e,i,o and u.
These were published in Avotaynu's "Nu, What's Nu" about a year ago.

So you really have to use your imagination if you don't find your relative's
origin on the first try.

I've never heard of any brother of Rashi, let alone one called Shimon.
A generation or two before Rashi there was a Paytan (author of liturgical
poetry)called Rabbi Shimon ben Yitzchok, several of whose compositions appear in
siddurim and (mainly Ashkenasi) machzorim. He was probably related to Rashi.
The online Jewish Encyclopedia
< http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/view.jsp?artid=121&letter=R&search=rashi >
doesn't mention a brother, but does say "R. Simon the Elder was his maternal
uncle".
