It seems to me that a few years ago the International Tracing Service
(ITS) in Bad Arolsen said they were going to make their records of
holocaust vicitms available online. This apparently never happened.
Does anyone have any status update on getting access to those records?

Dear Friends - if anyone is planning a visit to Vienna's
Zentralfriedhof, Tor 1, I'd much appreciate a photo of a
grave headstone. The person may or may not be a relative -
my information is contradictory - but the wording may assist
me.

Please contact me off-list.

Many thanks.

Old diseases #austria-czech

henry.kelwel@...
 

I am at present indexing the BMD records for Frauenkirchen, formerly
also called Boldogasszony, now in the Burgenland. It is well known
that in earlier days child mortality was quite high, but I did not
realize how high it was.
In the year 1858 there were 25 deaths in the Jewish community of
Frauenkirchen and among those were 15 children under one year. They
died of various diseases and I was able to figure out some of them,
such as AUSZEHRUNG (consumption), WASSERSUCHT (dropsy) and ENTARTUNG
DER EINGEWEIDE (degeneration of the intestines).
However two escaped me. There was one case of LUNGENLO"SUNG (not
LUNGENLA"HMUNG) and there were four cases of ANGELSPERRUNG.
I did find on the internet a few German lists of "old" diseases but
those two were not there. Any ideas?

Re: Given name Sarah Lvyah #general

Meron Lavie
 

If this is Hebrew, it means "lioness". I'm certain on this, as my last name is
LAVIE, which means "lion". I find it difficult to believe that this was a Hebrew
word, as the name is a modern Israeli name, rarely used. On the other hand, I
believe that the Yiddish rendering of "v" (as in Livia) would use the double-vav
ligature instead of a bet (vet).

I found the first and second name Sarah Lvyah [Bat R' Binymin] on a tombstone, and I
am not previously familiar with the second given name: Lamed-Beit-Yud-Alef-Hei.

The Hebrew name could derive >from "Liba" (loved, loved one) as in the
surnames/given names Liebman, Lippman, or Lev (heart).

As for Chaya/Sara, could easily be explained in the same ways as countless stories
collected on this list over time like how "Esther" became "Sophie" or two sisters
with the given names "Chaya" and "Jocheved" both ended up being called "Hatty" in
the US, or perhaps it was simply a mispronunciation that got carried over into
print. Which is to say that any and all explanations are possible, especially when
it comes to women's names evolving over time. Often Chaya became Eva (and many
Zlatta's became Sara's (or vice versa) in the US, but again, no hard and fast
rules. I have a "Szerena" Hungarian grandmother, whose Hebrew name was "Sarah"
who became "Sadie" when she enrolled in school. Baila became Bertha and Betty.
Ruchel became Rose, Leah, Lillie, and so on....

Connection between HURWITZ and ABRAMOWITZ families (Novarodok and Hartford, Ct.) #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

There is a long standing theory which states that the family of Rabbi Isaac Simcha
HURWITZ of Hartford, Ct. (d. 1936) and my ABRAMOWITZ family are related somehow.
Both families originated >from Novarok and some branches of each went to Eretz
Yisrael (Palestine) and some went to the USA.

I have been told by a member of the HURWITZ family that he had seen a family tree
which included our two families but he doesn't remember when and where he saw it.

If anyone has any information on this matter I would be happy to be contacted..

Thank you and Shavua Tov

Mordecah Rasseiner-"The Unbroken Chain" 1990 p542 #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I came across an entry in Dr. Neil Rosenstein's "The Unbroken Chain" 1990, page 542
that reads as follows: G13. Wife of R.S. RABINOWITZ son of Mordechai RASSEINER.
This 'wife" was the daughter of Gad Asher ROKEACH. As I am researching a possible
family connection to a Mordechai , coined "Ruzhiner" who lived in Karlin during the
early/mid 19th cent. I would appreciate anyone connected to this R.S. RABINOWITZ
to contact me.

In Argentina: Searching Schneider #general

Carol Raspler
 

A female relative named Tobe FOOR (FUHR? FUER?) left Kovno, Lithuania in the 1890s
for Argentina.

In Buenos Aires she married a man named Jacob SCHNEIDER. They had four (4) sons
and were in the printing business.

If any of our dear friends in Argentina picks up on this eMail, would you kindly
advise what you know - about SCHNEIDERs in the Printing business in B.A.???

Thank you for your attention.

Chevra Beth David Anshe Luibeschow section, New Montefiore Cemetery #belarus

Renee Steinig
 

I'm trying to determine the town associated with Chevra Beth David
Anshe Luibeschow, a synagogue or landsmanshaft with a section at New
Montefiore Cemetery on Long Island.Some possibilities:

- Lubaczow, Poland=A0(formerly Lubaczow, Galicia)
- Lyubeshov, Ukraine=A0(formerly Lyubeshov, Russia / Lubieszow, Poland)
- Lyubashevo, Belarus=A0(formerly Lyubashevo, Russian Empire / Lubaszewo,
Poland)

If you have relatives buried on this organization's grounds,would you
please let me know where they originated? I realize that it's unlikely
that everyone buried in any society section is >from the same town or
even >from the same vicinity and that's the case here. Using arrival
records, censuses, naturalizations, and draft cards, I've found that
several people buried in the CBDAL plot have roots near Minsk, but at
least one is >from the Bukowina region of what's now Romania and
Ukraine and another is >from a town near Kielce, Poland. My hope is
to link at least one person in the plot with one of three towns above.

Unfortunately, there's not a single match between any of the 50 of so
surnames represented in the plot and listings in the JewishGen Family
Finder for the three possible towns.

FYI, some of the less common surnames in the plot are: BOREJSZA,
CIMRING, FALCHUCK, GOODOWITZ, GUTTERSON, HAMERMESH, KIPEL,
KOPPERBERG, MOSCOW, RODIS, RUDNICKI, SAPOL, SKLAWER,
SMOLAR, SUKOVICE. If any of these names are of interest, please see
details on the New Montefiore website --
