JewishGen Sub-Carpathia SIG - a new addition to JewishGen #romania

Warren Blatt <wblatt@...>
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce the formation of a new
Special Interest Group -- the JewishGen Sub-Carpathia SIG.

The JewishGen Sub-Carpathia SIG focuses on parts of the pre-WWI
Hungarian megyek (counties) of Bereg, Maramaros, Ugocsa and Ung,
today located in Sub-Carpathia, Ukraine.

The prime objective of SIG is to help with genealogical research
and related information-gathering.

Please visit the JewishGen Sub-Carpathia SIG's web site at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Sub-Carpathia/

See what's there, and contribute material you may have that
will enhance it. Perhaps you would like to spotlight your family,
in the hope of locating relatives.

These are JewishGen Sub-Carpathia SIG's ongoing projects:

- gazetteer of Sub-Carpathian villages and towns -
by their former Hungarian and present Ukrainian names,
with both lists linked to show the location on a map
- transcription of the Velikiy Bereznyy (Nagyberezna) mohel book
- transcription of the new Mukacheve cemetery tombstones
- transcription of the Berehove cemetery tombstones
- transcription of the Pryborzhavs'ke cemetery tombstones
- providing guidance for travel in Sub-Carpathia

There are also new projects, some of which have already begun,
and others awaiting volunteers to participate and/or lead them.
These include:

- translation of the Vynogradiv yizkor book
- cemetery projects - photographing and transcribing tombstones
- collecting travel photos >from visitors to their ancestral towns
- transcription of vital records

If you have interest, genealogical skills, knowledge of the history
and genealogy of this area, or language proficiency (Hungarian,
Romanian, Russian, Ukrainian, Hebrew or Yiddish, among others),
we would appreciate your help with our collective efforts.

A discussion/mailing list is the conduit through which SIG members
can communicate their research issues, ask for advice, offer
solutions, and share the creative ways in which they have
documented their family heritage.

To subscribe to the discussion/mailing list, please go to:
http://www.jewishgen.org/ListManager

Some North Minneapolis Jewish history #bessarabia

yricklevy
 

In 1905, my grandparents, Samuel Levine and Rose Confeld, were married in
North Minneapolis, MN, and they had their reception at Kistler?s Hall in
North Minneapolis (not far >from the old intersection of 6th and Lyndale). 
Rose?s parents were >from Kishinev, Bessarabia, and they settled in
Minneapolis around 1899 after homesteading in 1884 Painted Woods, North
Dakota and then Anoka, MN.  The Bessarabian Jewish community of Minneapolis
helped form some of North Minneapolis? congregations in the late
1800?s/early 1900?s.

There is a video at http://www.tpt.org/?a=programs&id=21633 called
?Cornerstones: A History of North Minneapolis? that discusses the diverse
history of the area.   (Click on the ?watch now!? link on that page if you
want to see it).  In it there are pieces on Plymouth Avenue (a central point
of the community) and on the old synagogues.  Please note that the video
aired back in May, and I don?t know how long they will keep it on that
website.

Dear Dan,

If the word "saudek" appears only in the records of boys, than it may very likely be the word "sandek,"
which is like a godfather. A sandek holds the infant boy down during circumcision. Typically a sandek is a
close relative of the parents and it is an honor to be selected as a sandek. Sometimes, the sandek sponsors
the celebratory meal after the bris.

The name of the sandeks appears in some circumcision ledgers along with the baby's and the father's
Hebrew names, but not in all ledgers. The most thorough circumcision ledgers may identify the familial
relationship of the sandek to the baby's father: father, father-in-law, brother, brother-in-law, etc.

It was a big surprise to discover that word on the birth register for my
grand father Josef ROSENBERG born in Cernovici. His 3 siblings were called
SHAPIRA and it seems they all had the same father.
Could you send me Daniela Torsh's message about the Familianten laws?

Thank you!

Most probably "sandek" >from the Hebrew "sandak" -- the person who holds =
the male infant on his knees during the circumcision. A role often =
given to the child's grandfather, and sometime to other honored members =
in the family or community. A sandak has a special relationship to the =
baby, somewhat similar in a way to a godfather.
The movie "The Godfather" was called "Ha (the) Sandak" in Hebrew.
