I have uploaded 4 files to ViewMate for translation.
They are all vital records written in Polish. All are >from the town of
Prasznysz, Poland.

I am especially interested in the particulars of this record, which is the
Marriage record, Akt #9 of my gggm Leja Rana DUCZYMINER and gggf Chaskiel
CHANOVER of Makow Mazowiecki in 1860:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=17916
Is Chaskiel's surname incorrectly noted in the original index as
CHASKLOWICZ?


Death record, Akt # 52 of Jankief DUCZYMINER in 1843:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=17918


Birth record, Akt #21 of Jankief DUCZYMINER in 1848:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=17917
Was he named for his brother who died five years earlier? Or do I see a
double given name in the record not noted in the original index?

Marriage record, Akt # 9 for Lejb DUCZYMINER and Hinda Leja SZYLER in 1848:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=17919

Responses should be posted directly through the ViewMate webpage, or sent

Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive # 103 #general

Ernest Kallmann
 

*Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive # 103 is (at last) available. Please view the
summary:

A genealogical inquiry >from Metz to the Rhine valley
Pascal FAUSTINI publishes an interim report about the 3-year rehabilitation process
of the Crehange cemetery. Revue 99 has already described the 3-year work of German
and East-European volunteer students, members of ASF, coached by Belgian academics.
While the on-site rehabilitation phase is now completed, the inscriptions are now
being deciphered and correlated with documentary evidence, so as to reconstruct the
history of the local families. As a foretaste of the final publication, Faustini
elaborates on the rare given name Ozer/Auser which he has found on a deed dated
1664. He shows that all individuals bearing this name are descendants of the Ozer
Levy mentioned in said deed in spite of their migrating in all parts of the Moselle
Departement.

Emile, Victor and Rene Worms: >from Waldwisse to Paris via Luxembourg
In their 3-part description of the Worms/Vorms family (Revue # 99, 100 and 102),
Louis Vorms and Guy Wormsstopped short after Moise Worms, born around 1767, married
to a bride >from Waldwisse. Laurent Moyse describes Moise's family and highlights
the career of two of his grandsons and one of his great-grandsons, prominent
lawyer, judge and politician and sociologist in France at the turn of the 20th
century

How research in Warsaw has evolved
Daniel Vangheluwe updates the publication of his family searches in Revue #79 and
80 (2004) taking advantage of the computerization in the meantime of large amounts
of data and documents by the Polish archives and Jewishgen's JRI-Poland. He shows
a variety of case studies with the "how to" that can help the reader and even ends
with a practical training program (the results of which can be checked in the
footnotes).

Rachbats marvelous book
Jean-Pierre DURAND tells us how the mythical book of his 21 generations remote
ancestor Rabbi Simon ben Tsemah Duran, Rachbats (Palma de Majorque 1361-Algiers
1444) kept by his family and apparently lost was serendipitously discovered. In
fact it is a mahzor, a collection of poems to be read on the High Holidays. The
rebirth of this precious old manuscript led to its in-depth examination and
analysis; the family decided in 2002 to donate it to the Paris Jewish Museum of
Art and Culture. Jean-Pierre Duran shows how he descends >from Rachbats, subject to
a gap of 18 generations.

INTRO - Seek Clara HAUSDORFF - Berlin c1939 #germany

Jules Feldman
 

I am searching for information on Clara HAUSDORFF who was possibly in
Berlin in 1939. Her granddaughter tells me the following :

She was born as Chaya Gittel HAUSDORFF in Jerusalem in about 1890 to
Mordechai Shlomo and Chaya Reizel HAUSDORFF and in Berlin went by the name
Clara or Klara HAUSDORFF. The HAUSDORFF family had been in Jerusalem since
1847 but had German citizenship .

She was married to Isaac PERLOW .
In 1914 her husband was in Australia and she was in Jerusalem with 2
children . With the outbreak of World War One she together with her
children, parents and siblings moved to Berlin .

In Berlin she was hospitalised and in 1925 sent her children to their father
in Australia . During the 1920s her parents and her siblings returned to
Jerusalem but she remained hospitalised in Berlin . She was probably still
alive in 1939 and her fate is unknown .

In the 1920s she lived in Marienburgerstrasse and was connected with the
Oranienburgstrasse Synagogue where her son sang in the choir . The district
of Berlin may have been called Charlottenberg.
Her name does not appear in the database of Yad VeShem.
We will be grateful for any information on her and any suggestions as to how
to find information . Thanks,

Jules Feldman, Kibbutz Yizreel <@julesfe>

Re: National Archives (USA) Cost for Digistizing Records Could Reach $1.4B #general

Jane Pearson <doumajk@...>
 

I don't think this is the cost of "digitizing the records at the National
Archives." I believe this refers to the Electronic Records Archive - the plan for
archiving "born digital" records. "it is also the repository of billions of pages
of e-mails, memos and electronic files created by every branch of government. These
along with a growing number of audiovisual holdings, must be preserved for the
public, by law, which has put the Archives under growing pressure to manage the
digital avalanche." (Wash. Post article cited)

Jan Meisels Allen
 

At the 2008 IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy (Chicago)there
was a session with Randoll Schoenberg on "Recovering Nazi Looted Art- A
Genealogist's Tale". Randoll is a Los Angeles based attorney --and Jewish
genealogist - he is the co-founder of the Austria-Czech SIG, and was the attorney
who successfully won in the US Supreme Court to be able to sue, and in the Austrian
Courts the return of the Klimt portrait for his client Maria Altmann. The return
of the valuable portrait that was taken by the Nazis was a remarkable event.

The following is the obituary of Maria Altmann who died at age 94 and the article
retells the story of the return of the portrait.

Dear Genners,
Last October I invited family members to a reunion in Tel Aviv. Most of them were
Hebrew-speakers, so I allowed them to express themselves in Hebrew. I am not a
Hebrew speaker. I filmed the reunion, which is 52 minutes long. My roots are >from
Lithuania, and everyone there originated >from a stetl in Lithuania. One member who
recently passed away was the last living witness in Linkuva to the Holocaust. If you
are fluent in Hebrew and English and wish to help me translate, please contact me at

Does anyone know an Irwin CHODOWSKY? #general

sharon yampell
 

All I know about him is he was born around 1917 in Russia and was an adopted son of
my first cousin twice removed Minnie WOLOWITZ MARGOLIS and her husband Hyman
(Herman). I found his name on a tree that a different cousin had made and he
doesn't even know who he is and whatever happened to him...

The cousin who made the tree said he found Irwin's name in the 1930 census with him
living with them in Philadelphia.

While we are on the topic of MARGOLIS, does anyone know anything about Minnie and
HErman's grandson Stephen? Minnie's second husband whose name was probably Ben?
When and where Minnie died?(she was born in Borzna around 1895)

Thanks in advanced!
