Baumgarten/ Moravia:place and family: #austria-czech

Yosi <yosi47@...>
 

I hope this message comes the right way.

My family's name is BAUMGARTEN. Its origin is in Moravia(18th -19th cen.)

We know about family members in these localities:Kremzier,Aausse,Gaya,
Prost(n)its and Goldstein (Goldenstein?).We are able to identify these
places by their modern equivalents .

Though we find many places by the very same name, Baumgarten (= a garden of
trees),none of them is located in this Moravian area( in the vicinity of the
above mentioned villages).

Does anyone know this place and its "new' name?

Is anyone a descendant of this family (other names :PROSTIT (Avraham) ,
GOLDSTEIN (Goldenstein) Izak or FRELICH (Yehoshua)?


Thank you,

Ora Kuris- Baumgarten,Jerusalem

As a longtime researcher and collector of "Postal History of the Holocaust"
I have been unable to find information about this person. Among the
original material which I have gathered, as well as copies obtained from
fellow collectors, I have mail addressed to Dr. GOLDMANN and mail originating
from him to Theresienstadt - Birkenau - Schwarzheide - KG Prag, Abteilung
fuer Soziale Fuersorge (meal program for children).

I am puzzled that at this date where information is so plentiful this data
is either not available, or being withheld. I would be appreciative of any
help. Please respond privately to <hsas2229@comcast. net>.

Levite = Segal = Levy #lithuania

hrhode
 

Re: Tamar Dothan's question about Levites listed as Segal or visa-versa.

I had the exact same story in 1816 in Kovna city, where I found the
Neviazshky family (the LEvite branch) listed instead as Levy. Segal is in
fact an abbreviation meaning S'gan Leviim - meaning assistant who performed
duties in the Bet Ha-Miqdash (our Temple in Jerusalem). So what you write
may sense - i.e., that someone listed as Levy could be listed as Segal or
vis-versa.

20th Century Records #lithuania

<< From: hksanders@... Can anyone tell me what the categories of
information are in 20th century (pre-Shoah) death records that are held
in the Lithuanian State Archives. Do they list the parents of the deceased,
his offspring, anything other than his birthdate, birthplace, and residence
at time of death? >>

Go to the following site and you will see a sample translation of a 1904
death record.

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/templates/CzaristDeathsTemplate.xls

While the example shown is for Kishinev, the type of information shown is,
generally speaking, the same for Lithuania and other Eastern European
countries. Some death records contain more information than others even
for the same town or village. Also, there is very little variation in the
data regardless of whether it was for the 19th Century or the 20th Century.
Either way, the Jewish vital records were recorded by a Rabbi so the
variations are slight.

A tip to search the Lodz Jewish Cemetery database #poland

Jean-Pierre Stroweis
 

Thanks to Marek Szukalak and to the Fundacja Monumentum
Iudaicum Lodzense, there is a valuable web site for the Lodz
Jewish Cemetery, at http://www.jewishlodzcemetery.org
Indexing is still ongoing.

In the meantime, in order to search for a grave, it is now necessary
to go over each and every quarter plot and see if the person you
search is buried there, something that may be fastidious.

I present here a booster that spares you some time,
especially if you are searching for many persons and surnames.
This is not a replacement for a whole search system, though.

I describe the procedure assuming you use Internet Explorer and
Windows but this can be adapted for other browsers and
operating systems.

1. Go to the cemetery plan at
http://www.jewishlodzcemetery.org/cmentarzEN.html

2. Click one by one on every quarter plot of the map, without
looking at the names. It'll take you a few minutes.

3. Using Windows explorer or 'My Computer', navigate to the
directory where all your temporary internet files are stored
(on Windows it is typically located at:
C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files )

4. With Windows's Search utility, you can scan a whole directory
hierarchy of files and search for an embedded string; so type in
the surname that you are searching (or a portion of it) and, for file
name, enter simply htm.
This search will bring up only the (temporary) html files for those
plots that contain the string you searched.

It is recommended to clean your temporary internet files before
proceeding.

Re: HOLLANDER, ZILBIGER & WULKAN family tree #general

I fully agree with Celia Male, (and especially as my origins are >from Galicia and
Vienna) there is still lot to do with each one of these families.

As the Mishna in Avot tells: "Lo Alecha HaMelacha Ligmor" - leave something for
the others to do, I hope that someone >from these families will give a hand and
join this work.

ROZANSKI/ROZOVSKI #general

I found a record in the Holocaust Data Base for Szaul ROZOVSKI married to a woman
named Libba Gitel. My great grandfather (as shown on his son's death certificate)
was Schleime ROZANSKI, married to Libba Gitel. The town both lived in was Mir,
which had a Jewish population of about 4,000. Is it likely that these are the the
same person?

Thanks for your help.
