ViewMate request - Poland - Galicia #galicia

Rose Katz <rjtalents@...>
 

Hello !

I've posted two pictures on the Jewishgen site, which I found among
the papers my father had kept. He left Poland just before WWII, and lost
all his family there. They were living in Kobylnica Ruska, near Wylkie
Oczy.

I think the pictures are >from his brother, or cousin, but I would like to
know what their uniforms mean, to which army they belonged, at what
approximate date they might have been taken, and every information you
could give me.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Family Numbers (again) #galicia

Henryk Gruder <henrygruder@...>
 

The mystery of "Family Numbers" remains unsolved.

My ancestor Joseph GRUDER (ca. 1795 - 1846) is showed in the Family
Evidence, for the tax purposes as sharing / inheriting ? Family Number 1942
with Mund family, however Joseph has assigned number 505. Since 505
was a number of another (older) branch of the GRUDER family, I assumed
he was a son of the family. Number 1942 included (I assume) a whole family
of Joseph, including his wife Rachel LICHTENHEIM and their children.

In another document, recording marriages in Lvov, Joseph Gruder, who
married Rachel LICHTENHEIM in Lvov, 1809 has a number 5818. This way
Joseph has three different family numbers! 505, 1942, and 5818.

Can anybody make sense of it? Untangling this knot is important, since it
can shed light on relations between different persons.

Any help is welcomed,

Henryk Gruder

More detail on Vilnius death and cemetery records #lithuania

Peggy Freedman <peggyf@...>
 

I have received a great deal of interest in reposting David Shapiro's
remarks about the cemeteries in Vilnius.

Some clarification:

ALL the existing death records for the City of Vilnius >from 1837 to
1940 have been translated and indexed by LitvakSIG. You can see ALL of
these records NOW by donating $100 to the Vilnius District Research
Group of LitvakSIG on our secure website at:
https://www.litvaksig.org/join-and-contribute/
Some of these records are in the All Lithuania Database and some will
not be added for two more years.

LitvakSIG gathered these records >from several archives and found them in
different formats and languages. We expected more financial support
from the community than we have received. There are many other kinds of
records >from Vilnius, and if you would like them translated, please
support the project financially so that we can continue to translate
records.

The original message was about cemetery records. These are not the same
as death records kept by the government, but are catalogs of burials in
a particular cemetery.

To share the information that has been sent to me:
. . . . .The first Jewish cemetery was established in Snipishok. It was
established in the end of 15th century and was closed for burials in
the beginning of the 19th century when the second cemetery was opened.
. . . . .The Jewish cemetery in Zarechye (Uzupis; on the Olandu Street)
was established in 1829. The Jews were buried in this cemetery until
1946. It was destroyed in 1959 when the Soviets built a building there.
. . . . .The third cemetery still exists, this is where the Vilna Gaon's
tomb was moved in 1959. There are still burials in this cemetery. The
inventory for this cemetery was donated to the JewishGen JOWWB project
several years ago.

I have not seen catalogs of the two older cemeteries, we are still
looking for them.

Re: ViewMate translation request - Napoleonic French used in Germany #germany

Dear Bob:

I'm not able to translate your vital records, but I can give you a
suggestion. The website of Steven Morse (www.StevenMorse.org) has a list of
various calendar conversions that might include one for the Napoleonic
Calendar. I hope this is helpful.

The Jewish Community of Berlin will celebrate a milestone in September,
the 150th anniversary of the consecration of the New Synagogue,
The celebrations will take place on Sunday, 11th September at
Oranienburgerstrasse.
The New Synagogue has not held an anniversary celebration of this

will reflectthe rich history of the Synagogue and it's role (past and
present) in the context of the Jewish community of Berlin.

CHANNENSOHN/MENDELSOHN in Bauska/Schoenberg #latvia

Jennifer Mendelsohn <jennifer@...>
 

Thanks to all who replied to my earlier query.

With the help of Seth Nasatir, I suspect that my great-great
grandmother's maiden name was something like
"Chanensohn/Hannenson/Khanenson."

The family lived in Bauska and in Schoenberg, where my great-grandfather
was born in 1862. Sarah Hoda Chanensohn would have married Mendel
Mendelsohn circa 1853. Their children were

1.1. son Schmul (Chaim-Schmul, Chaim-Schmuel) Mendelsohn, born on
January 22 of 1854 in Schoenberg
1.2. daughter Chana-Bascha Mendelsohn, born on February 27 of 1856 in
Schoenberg, died on October 12 of 1857 in Bauska, burried at the Jewish
cemetery in Birsen (Birzhai),
1.3. son Mowscha-Behr Mendelsohn, born on August 17 of 1858 in
Schoenberg
1.4. daughter Dweira-Dobra Mendelsohn, born on April 3 of 1860 in
Schoenberg,
1.5. son Itzig (Itzka) Mendelsohn, born on January 22 of 1862 in
Schoenberg
1.6. son Aron-Marcus Mendelsohn, born in about 1866
1.7. daughter Chane-Ette Mendelsohn, born in about 1866
1.8. son Wulf Mendelsohn, born in about 1871
1.9. daughter Chinendel (Sheindel?) Mendelsohn, born on July 3 of 1874
in Schoenberg.

If anyone, by any chance, has connections to the Mendelsohns or the
Chanensohn family, please let me know.
Thanks.

Stepbrother? #general

Liz Hanellin
 

Dear Genners,

My g-grandmother came to the U.S. >from Grodno in 1910. She is listed on her
ship manifest as Riwke SCHEINES. In the US her name became Becky Shaynes
(among other spellings). Her maiden name was ELFMAN. She was 28 when she got
here and had three kids.

I cannot make out on the manifest whether she was able to read and write.
The reason I mention that is because the manifest lists "the nearest relative
or friend in country whence alien came" as "stepbrother: Simon Pesh
[illegible]." So, my question is whether someone who didn't speak English well
would have known what a stepbrother is? Can I rely on that being the correct
relationship? Also, if anyone has access to this record online, can you make
out the second part of Simon's surname?

Thanks in advance,

Liz Hanellin
