Genealogy from Russia #general

Bob & Lynn Sitsky <sitsky@...>
 

Is there a section of Jewish Gen that handles Russian genealogy questions.

My ancestors come >from Irkutsk, Tcheliabinsk and Kuybyshev (Samara)and there seems
to be no reference to these places.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Is there a genealogy service you would recommend that I could approach?

Many thnaks,

Bob Sitsky (Sydney Australia)

Re: Matzo in coffee anyone? #germany

Werner Hirsch
 

We often had matzo in coffee (mazzekaffee) for breakfast during Passover. We
came >from Aschaffenburg in Bavaria. I know others >from that town, non-relatives,
that still eat it. I've traced parts of my family back to the 16th Century and
haven't found any with roots outside of Germany, or even far >from Bavaria. The way
we made it was simple; fill a cup with broken matzo, pour coffee over it, add milk
or cream and sugar, eat with a spoon. (I just enjoyed a cup.)

tradition of Jews in Hungary...

JCRS, xxxx Colfax-Spivac-Colo #general

Lisa Grayson <lisa@...>
 

Robert Fraser asked what "JCRS, xxxx Colfax-Spivac-Colo" on a US Social Security
form could mean.

That's probably the Jewish Consumptives' Relief Society on Colfax Avenue, once run
by Dr. Charles Spivak. According to an article in the Rocky Mountain News (see link
below), "Some maps of the area have a little dot near Colfax and Kendall that says
'Spivak, Colo.'"

Re: Matzo in coffee anyone? #germany

David Birnbaum
 

Hi All,

Regarding Ben's report on Matzo in coffee - we also have that tradition in the
family - coming >from my father who also was a kindertransport refugee >from Germany.
He, however, was first generation German (born in Frankfurt) - his parents both
came originally >from Galicia (with no Hungarian connection anywhere).

Wherever the tradition comes >from - it's something to look forward to every Pesach
for those of us brought up on it [and for those of us, like my wife, who wasn't
(notwithstanding her Hungarian genes...) - to fail to understand why anyone would
go near the stuff! :)]

Seeking Vienna residence information for Bronia HORN 1926-29 #galicia

Marla Raucher Osborn <osborn@...>
 

Dear researchers and enthusiasts,

I have a Rohatyn family member who went to Vienna >from 1926-29 to "deepen
her study of German language".

Her name was Bronia HORN (Bronislawa HORNOWNA), born 1904 in Rohatyn.

I have numerous records and correspondence about her >from archives at
Jagiellonia University in Krakow and the Universities of Lwow and Vienna.

I already know >from my research and these records that Bronia was sent in
1914 >from Rohatyn at age 10 to a "Vienna Department School" because of the
outbreak of WWI (Rohatyn was occupied).

from 1924-26, Bronia attended University of Lwow, studying German and
French language and literature.

from 1929-31, she did graduate work at Jagiellonia University, and was then
an apprentice teacher of German at the Polish all-boys school called
A. Witkowskiego, in Krakow.

In between, I also know that in May and June of 1926 she was living at two
addresses in Vienna:
Lerchenfelder Strasse 46/29, Vienna
Hoefergasse 5/9, Vienna

What I don't know is where she was living in Vienna between June 1926 and
fall 1929 when she started her graduate work at Jagiellonia.

Her older sister Jute HORN was living in Vienna >from 1919-24 while a
medical student at the University, and I have several addresses for her during
her time there.

Can anyone please help for younger sister Bronia?

I am preparing a lecture to be given at the JCC Krakow on May 29, 2012 on
the lives of Rohatyn sisters Bronia and Jute HORN!

Kind regards and advance thanks,
