Is there a registry for Kohenim in Israel? #general

George
 

My great-uncle, Itzhak FRENKEL emigrated to Israel in 1935 >from Vienna. He
died in Haifa in 1974. One of my relatives told me that at shul he made
the sign that Kohanim make and that my great-uncle told him he was a Kohen.

My father thought he was a Levi, but not a Kohen. Would the Levis make
the same sign in the synagogue? Is there a registry in Israel of all
Kohenim? If so, is it accessible to the public?

GREGOR CHOSID #belarus

Miriam Margolyes <yarrawa@...>
 

It was good to see Gregor Chosid's name in Yuri Dorn's recent post
which contained much of what I wrote to Jewishgen Discussion Group
in January.
It maybe that those of us who knew him would like to donate
to the Belarus Group in his memory.
I would be happy to start this off.

Subject: Gregor Chosid R.I.P.

Many who have travelled to Grodno will be sad to learn
of the passing of Gregor CHOSID, a most valiant & delightful man,
who has died there on Jan 6th. this year. He was 87 & had survived
the Nazi roundup by jumping out of a train on its way to Treblinka.
For 18 months, he wandered in the forests near Grodno & later
joined the Jewish partisan group, the Bielski brothers.

After the war, Gregor devoted his life to teaching & also
& helped many people who came to Grodno searching for their
families. He helped me when I was getting
the Grodno Yiskor Book translated for Jewishgen.

He also assisted the priest Jozef Makarczyk >from Grodno,
on the publication of a book on the Grodno Ghetto,
compiled >from a diary of one of the prisoners of the ghetto.
The book was published in 2011.

Before the war more than 30,000 Jews lived in Grodno. After the arrival of
the Germans
Grodno Jews were forced to live in two ghettos, >from which, in November 1942
the Nazis
began to forcibly evacuate people to the death camps, Treblinka and
Auschwitz.
Thus perished almost all Grodno Jews; only about 200 people survived. Many
of those
who managed to escape later travelled to Israel,(where there is a Grodno
Landsmanschaft )
to the U.S. and other countries.

Gregor was one of the very few who remained in Grodno, keeping the memory of
this
once great community alive. 'Forward' magazine wrote about him last year.
He was a great & gentle warrior.

an exception and gave permission to bury Mr. Chosid at the old Jewish
cemetery, which was closed for burials a long time ago.
May we share only happy occasions together.

Uh, what did you say the name was? #general

Jeff Tripp <jefftripp01966@...>
 

My paternal great grandfather, Julius TRIPP, came to the US in 1882 or 83 at
about 14 years of age >from Poltava in what is now Ukraine. Tsar Alexander II
had just been seriously bombed (he died), Boston Marathon massacre style.
Turmoil ensued, and it appears to have been politic to get out of towns all
over the empire. My great great grandfather Abraham - apparently everybody
was named Abraham in those days - and his wife, Rose, stayed behind. I think
. . .

In any case, Julius somehow got to Sterling, Illinois, on the Rock River,
where, scenically speaking, he probably felt somewhat at home. The breadbasket
of imperial Russia to the breadbasket of the US in one easy, all right, not
so easy, trip. Ten years later he married Leah Morris, German by way of
England, moved to Chicago, they engaged in reproduction, etc..

And somehow he ends up with the noble, historic, early 1600s English surname
'Tripp'. Nice. It just couldn't have been his name - right? Really. My father,
who chose to not pay any attention to all this, attributes the name change
to Ellis Island INS guys, but, just for starters, we don't even know for
certain that young Julius came through the Port of New York at all. Ellis
Island didn't come on line till roughly 1906; before then, it was something
called Castle Garden. Those people were not making a Hollywood movie. That
came later.

Re the surname, somehow, somewhere, maybe for the ship's manifest, it got
changed. Do any of you know how to peck away at this search, preferably
without spending money I don't have?

Dear GerSIG Readers,

I received a large number of replies some weeks ago to my initial question
about the Julius P (my father) and Arthur STEINDLER family of Graslitz,
Bohemia and Vienna, Austria.

I must apologize for not replying to each person. I am training to take
the exam to sell insurance in Illinois. This will occupy at least most
of my time until at least the beginning of June.

Thanks to all of you who replied to my first post, as well as to all
who facilitate all our (and others') research via GerSIG.

It means a lot, especially when one locates (living) relatives one did
not know about. Shalom to all!

Please tell me how and where you did research for the death record. -
The death records where issued in the town or village where the person

you have to search for the death record there.
