greetings.........Our synagogue has a Torah >from the town of Pribram,
which is south of Prague, under the Czech Memorial Torah Scroll program.
I would like to hear >from anybody with either a/ personal ties to the
town or b/ is in a congregation with one of the other 11 scrolls >from
Pribram. I have been gathering up information and would like to connect
with others similarly intersted in that community in order to recapture
as much as possible and perhaps put together a memorial book, maybe even
make a group trip to Pribram to present such a book in conjunction with
some kind of memorial service..Apparantly the cemetery is well cared for,
the synagogue is gone. I have spoken with a survivor who has visited the
town, [not his hometown, but extended family was there]. There are no Jews
remaining there that he knows of.

Please share this with appropriate people, our synagogue is seriously
interested in a collaborative effort to gather up whatever we can about the
Jewish community of Pribram that they may live on in memory. I will be at
the conference in Philly and on line, so you can look me up in person as well.

hoping to hear >from some of you......

Re: Location of Szt. Marton #general

Two resources for finding towns in "greater Hungary" are:

1) http://www.bogardi.com which has a several gazetteers of Hungary
(a searchable 1913 one, as well as 1882 and 1995).

2) http://sebok2.adatbank.transindex.ro/index.php which is a database
of place names >from what used to be part of Hungary. (It's in Hungarian,
but fairly simple to operate.)

Unfortunately, Szent Márton was quite popular in Hungary, and that name
appears all over. But there is a Borsodszentmárton in the Sajószentpéter
district of Borsod County. also known as Bu"kkszentmárton, it is about
20 km south of Ózd. The Hungarian name for Martinová was Mártonfalva
(or Mártonfala), in Rima-szécs district of Gömör megye, when it was part
of Hungary, and is about 15 km north of Ózd.

Searching Charles HART, Essex, England, late 18th c. #general

Edward Cooper <e.k.cooper2007@...>
 

Hello,

I am writing to enquire if anyone has any information pertaining to a
Charles Hart; who I believe was born in Essex in around 1770. I
believe he married a Rothchilde; I have been unable to find a first
name. They had two daughters, Frances and Rachael; born 1797 and 1798.

Frances Hart married a William Higgins, who converted to a Methodist
religion and moved to Australia to convert the Catholic Irish in
Australia.

I believe that Charles Hart's parents may have been James Hart and Ann ?.

I would love for any help with this as it means a lot to my family to
establish the Jewish connection.

Thank you so much in advance for any help,

Harrison Swan

Subject: Jewish Roots in Ukraine and Moldova/Weiner

For those interested in what life was like in the late 19th century for the
Jews of southern Ukraine, you might enjoy the book "The Journeys of David
Toback" by Carole Malkin. The author took her grandfather's yiddish memoirs
and wove them into a book that reads like a good novel. My grandfather
happened to also be named "David Toback" which is what attracted me to the
book, although I do not think the two were related. I was unable to find
the book in the library but purchased a used copy for under $10.

Thank You Allan Jordan -- help with US immigration documents #general

Irene & Paul Berman <ikpjb@...>
 

I wish to thank Allan Jordan for his generously donating much time and
effort to helping me get past my "brick wall" and solving the puzzle that
had perplexed me for years. Through his checking and crosschecking of
documents at the New York City Vital Records Archives, we learned the
official "American" first name of my great-grandfather with almost throrough
certainty, thereby being allowing us to establish his place and date of
burial. I had actually visited the grave a while back on a visit to New
York, but while the Hebrew name and last name were right - he was even
buried in the plot owned by his hometown's burial society - the first name
seemed wrong.

I had long been confused by what has emerged as his apparent
experimentation with different first names before settling on one he liked.
An Ellis Island manifest showed one name; later reliable documents showed
another name. In the researching process we were also able to clarify the
names adopted by his immigrant daughters, and other pertinent facts about
their early years in the U.S.

Bravo, Allan.

Manifest Mystery Notation Solved - MHS = Marine Medical Service #general

Linda
 

Dear Genners,

An impressively-accomplished and helpful lot you are!

Marian - I think the acknowledged expert on US manifests? - let me
know the meaning of the acronym decorating my immigrant's manifest,
and suggested that there was a slim chance that one additional file
at NARA might contain correspondence pertaining to him if any were
generated. A slim chance, because she thought that he was released
after a short hospital stay since it looked like people with the
notation "Notif" were being admitted.

I had also wondered whether the Familysearch Record Search database
is complete for 1905-6 Philadelphia deaths. No answer to that question
yet. I have searched it carefully for Judah Elik Chirurg's death
without finding any that comes close to meeting the criteria, again
suggesting (if it's complete) that Elik did not die in Philly.

Which would mean on to research in Pittsburgh. A number of people
responding gave me some very useful suggestions in this direction.

I have thanked everyone individually, but once again, thank you one
and all for your time, your efforts and your invaluable expertise.
