Re: General need for information on Boskovice #austria-czech

Ronny Roberts <ronny@...>
 

My brother and I have always considered Jaroslav Klenovsky to be the diamond
among Moravian sources for Boskovice roots. Based in Brno, he has devoted
many years to the research and preservation of Jewish heritage in the
region, publishing several books on the subject. It was Jaroslav who
painstakingly located the documentation outlined on my website at
http://www.aufrichtigs.com/03-Other_Aufrichtigs/Boskovice_Archive_Records.htm.
There is, of course, a good chance that these same headings will contain
information on the Beran and Broch families. I'm not sure if the email
address I have for him is still active, but he used to be at
jaroslav.klenovsky@zob.cz.

My cousin and I are trying to find out if there is any mid-19th century information
available >from southern France. I had written, many years ago for a birth record
for a cousin who said he was born in Marseilles and got none, now I have found out
that there was a 3rd g uncle who moved >from Suwalki gubernia to Sudan, France by
about 1865-1870.

Does anyone know what records (if any) are available there?

Boskovice #austria-czech

Gabriela Svatos
 

The 1799 familianten list appears in the Bransky book called "Zide v
Boskovicich" (starting p. 91) which was published in 1999. Bransky writes
that the first COMPLETE numerical familianten list (including single men)
can be found in "Sub-Reparatitions bei der Boskowitzer juden Gemeinde fur
das Jahr (1)799.

For example, the following Jellinek entries can be found in the 1799 list:

5. Isak Gellenk (Jelinek?)
43. Samuel Jellinek
98. Salomon Jellinek
121 Dawid Jellinek
141 Jakob Jellinek
197. Jakob Jellinek
220. David Jellinek

from glancing through the book, it appears that most of the data comes >from
old land and tax records (rather than metrical records).

Our own Henry WELLISCH wrote an English summary in this book (there is also
a german summary). He cites the following sources for Boskovice
information:
Moravian Regional Archive (Brno) particularly in the Kunstat nad Mor branch.
State Archive Blansko (Boskovice branch)
Land Archive (Opava) in the Janovice u Rymarova branch
Jewish Museum Prague (for later documents)

There are many other sources, but Henry could best tell you about them.

Good luck,
Gabi

Introduction #austria-czech

Lilian Gajstut <lgajstut@...>
 

Dear group,

I am new to this group and would like to introduce myself. I've been doing
genealogical research for almost 1 year, mainly in Germany, England and USA.
This is my first time researching in Eastern Europe. I am proficient in the
use of computers and the Internet. I am currently researching my mother's
(Fanny Wagner Granierer) paternal and maternal families. My grandmother, Ana
GRANIERER SUCHER, was probably born in Czernowitz on 2/29/1909. My
grandfather, Aron WAGNER, was also probably born in Czernowitz on 3/31/1907.
They married ~1925 and emigrated to Montevideo, Uruguay, where my mother and
her siblings were born. Unfortunatelly, my mother already passed and my aunt
doesn't remember much, so it is a bit of a challenge for me to do the
research.

I would like to get birth certificates for both of my grandparents. Has
anybody gotten a birth certificate by mail >from there? What is the
procedure? And how much does it cost? Can I write in English to them?

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you in advance and regards,

VS: Moravian records AGAIN... #austria-czech

Celia wrote about the missing familianten data for Moravia. So far I could
find they dispersed in various local archives, where they are archived
together with papers of relevant village owner.
To bring a little bit light onto the matter. In Judaica Bohemiae 2005 is
excellent article by Pavel Kocman: "Die juedische Besiedlung Maehrens im
Jahre 1667" listing names >from the various villages on bases of txation

Does anyone know the significance of the wall built around Jihlava
Czechoslavakia? In the 1930s were Jews allowed to live inside the walls? I
know they could work and own businesses within the city proper because my
parents and grandparents had a variety store and a restaurant respectively.

Thank you for any help anyone can provide.

Hazan Hanan Family Tree #sephardic

Cristina & Martin <mp670thwife@...>
 

Hello,

I need help with Hazan Family Tree. We have the
following surnames in our family: Alhodeff, Cohen,
Esperanza, Gonzales Hanan, Hasson, Hazan, Jazan,
Rosanes or Rozanes, Surmani.

I'm having difficulty locating any records of my
great-great grandfather, Nathan Hazan married with
Matilde Cohen in Rodes and then immigrated to Buenos
Aires Argentina 1890?. The surname may be Jazan
also.

A relative made a family tree with Perahia Hazan as
the 1st cousin with Nathan Hazan.

Perahia parents were, Hozdoi Hazan b. 1842 with
Gracia Alhodeff b. 1847

Nathan's parents were Samuel Hazan b. 1840?.

I've searched for 7 years and can't find any
information to indicate Hozdoi and Samuel Hazan were
brothers. Also, how long they were in Rodes and where
they immigrated >from before that. Any ideas how we
find Jewish cemetery records >from Argentina?

There were about 1500 Sephardic Jews deported by
the Germans in 1944 >from Rhodes. Has anyone attempted
to research the records that were discovered in
Germany recently? The ones that appeared on 60
Minutes? Does anyone know whether they are available
to the public?

Thank you,
Cristina
