Re: Chichago Masonic Lodges #general

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

Audrey;

In order to obtain records about a member of the Masons you need to know the
lodge to which he belonged. Masonic records are kept by lodge. If the sister
does not know the lodge name and number, you should try to find his obituary
in the local paper, where an obit may have been submitted by his lodge.

With this information you can submit a written request for a copy of the
records. There is a fee.

For more information suggest you do a search for the main lodge or Masonic
organization for Chicago. Further info may be available on their web site.

Masonic records may or may not contain information about place of birth,
relatives, etc.

Happy hunting,

Sam

Have anyone know if one can obtain information about a Jewish
member of a Chicago Masonic lodge who died in 1922. His daughter
is still living .

If so how ?

Thanks

I suggest that Mr. Ginsburg's town was Talnoye, even though it is not close
to Kobrin. Talnoye, the birthplace of violinist Mischa Elman, is northeast of
Uman and south of Kiev. That Eastern European Jews travelled a lot for
business, marriage and religious reasons is well known. Very often Jews settled in
the place to which they had gone.

There are only a very few other towns the names of which begin with
"Tal.." The name of Talnoye can also be spelled as "Talna," Talnoe" "Talnoje," "
Talnoya.," according to "Where We Once Walked, whichsays that its pre WW II
Jewish population was 4,169.

For more information Mr.Ginsburg should use the "Search this Website" box
at Jewishgen's main page (www.jewishgen.org) and he should also do a "google'
search.

If Mr. Ginsburg's relatives came to the US he should also try finding them
at the online Ellis Island Database. If he does find their manifests he may
see a note as to where they emigrated from. He should also check other
databases for ports of entry to the US. He may have to visit the National Archives in
New York or in branches in other cities. Perhaps he will be able to find his

I'm looking for relatives of Artur BUXBAUM born March 23, 1889 who
lived in Prague and Teplice (Tepliz) who was sent to Terezin and
survived.

I don't know when he died, probably in the 60s but I have very vague
indications that he may have had a relative named Irma in Israel and a
cousin in Ohio.

Any indication is very very very welcome at this address:

New article on German-Jewish Names #germany

Simon Srebrny <srebrny@...>
 

Dear colleagues,
An article has just been published that might be both fascinating and
useful for our genealogical quests...

Title: Some Aspects of German-Jewish Names
Author: Rodney Livingstone

German Life and Letters
Volume 58Issue 2Page 164 - April 2005

(German Life and Letters 58(2),164-181)

btract:

Ashkenazi surnames present a bewildering picture, a hotchpotch derived

from a variety of languages seemingly without rhyme or reason. But
since names are a crucial part of a person's identity it is important
to ascertain whether an underlying logic can be discovered. In fact,
patterns may be discerned, beginning with the patronyms formed from
traditional synagogue names. These were supplemented by the addition of
profane names or kinnuyim, many of which refer back to key Biblical
texts or the Zohar. By contrast, names based on professions tend to be
translated into the different East European languages. Toponyms have
become the focus of recent debate as social historians and genealogists
explore the actual origins of what had all too readily been assumed to
be place names. Name changes arise not just >from movement between
different countries, but are subject to more direct pressures, chief
among them anti-Semitic sentiment, both in Germany and in Anglophone countries.

I have not yet read it. Have any of you?

NISNEVICH - Belarus #general

Schelly Dardashti <dardasht@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I met a TALALAY cousin and her husband who have been living in Israel for 30
years for the first time last week. We shared the usual reports, charts,
photographs and it was extremely interesting. Both are Moscow-born. both are
retired engineers who speak excellent English.
Her husband is interested in finding possible relatives and has not been
able to locate anyone.

His name is Lev NISNEVICH.
His father was Baruch married to Zina KAGANOV
His grandfather was Iosif/Yosef married to Fruma bat Movsha
(no family name known ... yet)
His great-grandfather was Zelig, wife not yet known.

He believes his father was >from Baranovich (west of Minsk), but he also
remembers hearing mentioned the town of Saliba, which we believe is Seliba.
According to ShtetlSeeker, there are two places with the same name. One is
60 miles WSW of Mogilev and the other is 30.5 miles SSW of Mogilev, near
Bychau, and is NW of Bobruisk.

Lev said he was told that a possible meaning of the name (in Polish) is
"unknown." His father had a brother who died without children (there
were/are four sisters, we are working on getting their names).
He does not know the names of his GF or GGF's siblings.

Searching JewishGen Family Finder, I find people searching similar families
from various Belarus towns between Minsk and Mogilev, such as Smilovichi,
etc. I will be contacting them as well and will have Lev enter his
information in the JGFF.
I also searched Belarus SIG pages and found similar family names in Minsk,
Igumen, etc. (none specifically >from Seliba or Baranovich).
However, I thought I would just post this in the hope that someone out there
sees something familiar in these names.
If this family name rings a bell with you, please contact me.

With best wishes for a very happy Passover and great genealogical
discoveries this season,
