Re: Is Additional Information Found in Archives That's Not Found in Tarnow PSA Records? #galicia

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

Dear Linda:

Although I am not familiar with the Tarnow records, I am familiar
with Galician vital records >from many other towns.

First you need to split these records into two categories -- those
before 1877 and those starting in 1877. Before 1877, there were
no government regulations that standardized what was to be
captured on Jewish vital records. In 1877 and thereafter, the
fields required in vital records were standardized. JRI-Poland
provides some examples of the column headings at
<http://www.jri-poland.org/galicia/GalicianVitalRecords_Titles_Nov2002.pdf>

Before 1877, there was no consistency, but we know there was
less information than in later records. For births, most records
included the father's full name and the mother's given name.
Sometimes records also included the given name of the father's
father and/or mother's father. For marriages, the parents of the
bride and groom are usually shown although not the mother's
maiden name. For deaths, only for children was a parent's name
usually recorded.

Starting in 1877, birth records included the names of the
mother's parents, but not the father's parents. Marriages
recorded the parents of both the bride and groom, including the
maiden name of the mother. And deaths again did not record
parent's names except for the death of children.

Since there was no consistency in recording of names, obtaining
examples >from other researchers for the type of record and the
year of your interest is the best way to find out exactly what was
recorded. All the examples I provide are the usual content based
on my years of experience with Galician records as an Archive
Coordinator for JRI-Poland.

Linda Silverman Shefler <linda.shefler@gmail.com> wrore:

Most of these specific records found in JRI Poland do not list
the names of parents (I am looking specifically for HANDGRIFF).
Does that mean that the parent's names are not included with
the original records as well, or does it mean that I would need
to send to the Archive to get that information? I am asking
because in a few cases the parent's names are mentioned.

JGS of Colorado Meeting - Sunday 30 Jan. - Yizkor Books #general

Terry Lasky <talasky@...>
 

Sunday, Jan. 30, 2011, 10AM-Noon
Yizkor Book - Required Reading for Jewish Genealogy
With Rachel Jablon, PhD Candidate in Jewish Literature
Congregation Har HaShem, 3950 Baseline Road, Boulder

Yizkor books, or Jewish memorial books, offer Jewish genealogists a
goldmine of information on ancestors, places of origin, religious
movements, industrial trends, and Holocaust history. This presentation
will cover the history and historiography of Yizkor books: what they
are, when they came to be, where they come from, why they were
published, who put them together, and how to use them. More
information available on our website at jgsco.org

I am writing once again before it is too late to make changes or any

many of you do now plan to attend, and would also attend a luncheon, if
that was needed to obtain a special speaker. The deadline is Sunday!

Rabbinic HALPERNs and DNA testing #dna

sbloom@...
 

For purposes of a DNA study of the HALPERN family, particularly the
rabbinic line >from Stanislaw,
I am looking for living men who descend directly along the male line
(that is, they would have the surname Halpern,
unless it was changed >from that for some purpose).

In looking at Neil Rosenstein's "Unbroken Chain" and "Lurie Legacy",
the most promising lines would be:

-Mr. Doron Halpern of Israel or his male line descendants
-Descendants along the male line of Joel Halpern of Stanislaw (1838-1898)
-Descendants along male line of Rabbi Michel Halpern d. 1916
-Descendants along male line of brothers Joseph, Hersz and Saul
Halpern, all died in 1930's or 40's
-Descendants along male line of Arthur (Abraham) Halpern, d. 1938
(son of Kalman Karl H.)
-Descendants along male line of Dov Berish and/or Gad George Halpern.
-Descendants along male line of Heinrich Halpern d. 1928 (apparently
a brothers of previous two?)

I have already identified a Mr. Leibish Halpern of Israel (a
descendant of the line of Chaim Jonah Halpern).

I'd be interested in speaking with other Halperns as well.

If you are interested, contact me, and or look at info by following
the "Join a Project" links at the Family Tree DNA website.

Looking for KSCHEWIN or KSHEVIN, LEVIN(E) and BOGASH #general

MERYL RIZZOTTI
 

Hello Genners:
I have hit the proverbial brick wall. My great grandmother was a KSHEVIN. Most
of the Kshevins (and many spelling variations) changed their names to Levin(e).
My great uncle Jacob Kshevin settled in New Jersey. In looking for the name on
Ancestry I found an Esther Kshewin going to my great uncle in New Jersey. I know
she is related to me because my gggrandmother was also named Ester and that
seems to be a family name. Jacob Kshevin, who changed his name to Levine, also
had a daughter named Ester but she was already on the 1910 US by the time the
other Ester arrived in 1913. I found Esther on the Boston HIAS record on
Ancestry. I looked at the film at my FHC but all it said was she arrived in 1913
bringing a boy named Moishe BOGASH who was going to his father Leizor Bogash in
Brooklyn. It did not give the name of the ship nor the date of arrival -- just
June, 1913. I looked through all the manifests for Boston for that month and
year and came up with *nothing*. I wrote to HIAS and they didn't even have the
copy of the card I had printed off the film. I have not been able to find any
Bogash families in New York with the first names of Moishe, Morris, Leizor or
Louis. The 1913 manifest would give the name of the people in Poland that they
left behind and give me some important clues. So if anyone has information on
these people I would greatly appreciate hearing >from you.

My comment: The long version is probably "Moebelhaendler" (two umlauts), which translates as "furniture
dealer"

I hope that helps

Subject: Translation occupation Mobelhdl. Thank you #austria-czech

So Mobelhdl. is Furniture dealer.

I wanted to confirm if Möbelhdl. might be a form of Möbelhersteller/Furniture
maker...(which I had expected it to be.)

Thank you very much for your time and help!
