Re: Access to LDS records #general

elanc@...
 

It generally takes two to four weeks for requested films to be delivered
in the U.S. I can't see why it would take more than one extra week to
deliver to Australia. The exception, sometimes, is when the particular
film you have ordered has been lent out to another Family History Center.
In that case you have to wait until its return. But that's relatively rare.
The only library that would have all the films that interest you is the
one in Salt Lake City.

You may have better luck, on the unlikely chance that someone has
access to your specific films, if you post their numbers.

Sincerely,

COHEN Family of Adelsdorf, Bavaria #general

SOL2516171@...
 

I am interested in getting information about my COHEN (COHN) ancestors
of Adelsdorf, Bavaria. I believe my great great grandfather Gottlieb
Cohen was born there in 1801 and his daughter (my great grandmother)
Caroline Cohen in 1834. Does anyone have access to Adelsdorf records
that would tell me about this family or know where I can find such
records?

Well, since you did not indicate where you live I can't tell you if you
are close enough to visit the grave of your relative. However,
the JGS of NY has listed ALL the cemeteries in the NY Metropolitan Area and
All of the Landsmanshftn and Burial Societies having plots in these cemeteries.

If you go to JGSNY.org and go to the Cemetery site under Burial Societies
you can find that the Pilgrim Sick & Benevolent Society has a plot in
Mt Judah Cemetery at Section 2 Block 1. Then if you look in the
Cemetery Section you find that Mt. Judah Cemetery is at Cypress Avenue
Ridgewood NY 11385. Their mailing address is P O Box0 860177
Ridgewood NY 11385 and their phone # is 718-821-1060.

With this information you should be able to phone the office and locate
the grave of your relative.

Good luck.

COHEN Liverpool UK #general

monicamcmullin@mac.com
 

Hi Everyone,

I'm searching Rebecca/Beccy COHEN. Beccy was (Louis FREEDMAN/
FREEMAN) 2nd wife. They married 1904/5. Rebecca was born Russia abt
1875 & died April 1911 aged 36.

Louis FREEDMAN/FREEMAN had the following children to his 1st wife:-
Gedaliah/Daniel/Dal/David born Leeds 1891
Hyman/Harry born Liverpool 1893
Nellie/Helen/Lillian born Liverpool 1894
*Abraham* born Russia 1895 - Possibly Becky's son to 1st marriage.
Samuel born Liverpool 1896
Elias/Eli born Liverpool 1898
Isaac born Liverpool 1900

Louis and Rebecca COHEN children were:-
Teri/Edward/Teddy born Liverpool 1905
Harry/Henry born Liverpool 1907

Abraham FREEDMAN/FREEMAN might have changed his name back to COHEN
after his mother died - lost trace since 1911 census. Both Rebecca and
Abraham remain brick walls.
My quest is to try to find what happened to Abraham FREEDMAN/FREEMAN/
COHEN. I'm hoping that the COHEN's below are descendants of Abraham
FREEDMAN/COHEN.
More recent deaths - within the last 20 yrs are of Louis COHEN and his
son Karl/Carl COHEN. Louis COHEN had a Jewellers shop called SAXONS
JEWELLERS in London Road, Liverpool abt 1960's. His son Karl/Carl
COHEN also ran another shop around the Longmore Lane, Liverpool. Karl/
Carl also had an Antique Shop in Matthew Street, Liverpool abt 1960's/
70's. Louis had another son who have had a B&B in Blackpool in 1950's/
60's. We don't know the name of this son (might be Wally)

I hope this jogs some memories !

Re: KOMETAU OR COMMANDO surname #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

family names KOMETAU and/or COMMANDO >from Mielec
snip..
I can confirm that the above names - and variant spellings thereof -
are not to be found in Prague in the 1793 Jewish census.
Miriam tells us that Alexander Bieder cites Kometau as a Sephardic
surname found in Prague, in 1702. Hence we must assume that this
family moved away or changed their name in the late 1780s with the
Josephian reforms. There is no sign on the name in Vienna either -
judging by the extensive cemetery records.

When we consider COMMANDO - I think CAMONDO is the name you are looking
for. Google the name for much information. I have been to the beautiful
and tragic museum in Paris of that name.

Similarly, there is no sign of the CAMONDO name in Prague in 1793, but
there are a few early CAMONDO buried in Vienna:

Abraham dob 20/12/1809 died 19/02/1832; Esdra died 26/09/1852;
Heinrich dob ca 1813 died 21/05/1879; Isaak died 09/09/1853:
Jakob died 08/07/1847; Regina died 14/07/1830; Rosa died 17/06/1875

They were the earliest members of the Turkish-Sephardic community in
Vienna, which predates the large-scale movement of Jews >from Bohemia,
Moravia and other Habsburg territories to Vienna post-1848.

corpse burners or distillers? #general

Eric M. Bloch
 

In translating the 1771-1774 Hungarian Jewish Censuses, one occupation
is listed in Latin as "Cremati Ustores." The only thing close to this
that I find in translation websites is "corpse burner." The two words
appear to be somewhat redundant and mean the same thing. It has been
suggested this occupation refers to alcohol distillers. Certainly the
distillation process requires burning. However, I cannot find any
definitive source that links this Latin occupation with distillation.

Based on the fact that some towns in the Censuses identified numerous
Jews with this occupation, and considering that Jews do not cremate
their dead (i.e. "burn corpses"), it seems plausible the term does refer
to alcohol distillation. Although, there are certainly other words in
the Latin language that could have been used to refer to alcohol
distillation.

Can anyone cite a reliable source that has linked the terms Cremati
Ustores, or similar words, to the occupation of distilling alcohol?

Thanks,
Eric M. Bloch
