Many thanks to Celia and others who responded on and off list. I have no way
of knowing if this is 'my' Skalitz/Skalica, but it seems logical enough.

Robert I suggest *Skalitz* now in Slovakia and renamed Skalica:

I have a 1913 Baedeker [Osterreich-Ungarn] and it is listed as "Skalitz in
Ungarn". There are also two other "Skalitz" in Bohemia and Moravia, hence
the
exact designation - see http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skalitz

LEVENTHAL in Lithuania #general

Jules Levin
 

Thanks to the work of a JewishGen reader (who I will name with gratitude if she
gives me permission), I got the name of a ggm and town in Lithuania. My ggf name
is given as LEVIN, but I believe it was longer in the old country. In any case,
from my gf death certificate in Chicago his mother's name is given as Libby
LEVENTHAL, father Samuel Levin. Unfortunately the town name in Lithuania is
Gertigolder, no trace of which was found. Even tho I know Lithuanian, I am not
even sure how to revise it into a Lithuanian place name. So now I am hoping to
solve this longstanding mystery by locating the family of Libby Leventhal, whose
name seems straightforward. Her birthplace is given as the same town. By the way,
where does Libby come from? Yiddish and German Liebe? Is there a Hebrew
equivalent as a woman's name? The time frame is mid 19th century, since my gf was
born in 1860.

General need for information on Boskovice #austria-czech

David Bernheim
 

Recent correspondence has highlighted the relative lack of sources for Boskovice roots.

This was of course made worse by the destruction of the official records during the War.

If anyone has information on sources, I am happy to summarise these to the SIG if you email me them. Any stories about how you found information about your family >from Boskovice would also be useful, or other experiences.

Has anyone translated any parts of the books Jaroslav Bransky wrote about the Jewish community in Boskovice? Or of the chapters in Hugo Gold's books?

Are there any useful contacts in Boskovice, Brno or elsewhere, who are knowledgeable about the history of Jews in Boskovice.

My family BERAN and BROCH were >from Boskovice, but I have not really known where to look for information on 19th century births, marriages & deaths. So I have made little progress beyond the notes my grandfather left me and my visit to the cemetery in Boskovice some years ago. In particular I am seeking information on my gggfather Benjamin BERAN who died, I believe,in 1890

Searching Ann HARRIS - Cincinatti 1843 - and siblings #general

Judith Diamond
 

Ann/ Annie, daughter of ROSE & BARNETT HARRIS of London, UK, was born in Cincinatti, Ohio, USA in 1843/44. Are there local or synagogue records available for Cincinnati? I want to trace possible siblings, born between 1844 - 1850.

Judith Diamond , London

MODERATOR NOTE: If you have not done so already, you may also
search the JewishGen Family Finder at http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/
to find others who researching the same surnames and places. If you
create your own entry as well, using the "enter/modify" option, you will make your information available to other researchers who will then be able to find you.

wife=head of household #general

reuven mohr <mor@...>
 

Hello list,

I would like to ask the US census specialists about a unique occurance among the
census entries for my relatives which I have seen so far. The 1920 census of Far
Rockaway, NYC, shows Amy H. LEVY as "Head" of the household, second is her husband
Louis LEVY, followed by 5 boarders/servants. The number 2+ is added after the word
"Head". This and other numbers (1-4) appear also with some other entries on the
same sheet. What can I learn >from this order of the household members? Was the
husband seriously ill and as such not functioning as a head of household? Any
sugestions?

In case someone on the list is related in some way to Amy H. LEVY, nee HEINEMANN
from Frankfurt/Main, Germany (1888-1981, childless), or to her uncle Moritz
(Morris)ROSENZWEIG, b.1859 (compositor?), wife Amalie/Amelia b.1862, children
Mathilde b.1884 (can't read her married name, who had a daughter Edith b. around
1914), Bertha b.1886 and Bernard b.1889 - I'd like to exchange information. In
1900 the ROSENZWEIG's lived in New Jersey, but later they appear in Brooklyn, NY.

Regards,
