Szleszynszczyznie #austria-czech

Joshua Kaufman
 

I've been trying very hard to decipher the place name
"Szleszynszczyznie" and am hoping someone can help.

from my research, it seems to me that there are at least two possibilities:
(1) There is a village with this actual name.

(2) The suffix -szczyznie is being used to denote the "region of" a
place called "Szleszyn". Could this be the historical region of
Silesia, the town of Slesin near Kalisz, or somewhere else?

Other ideas?

I greatly appreciate any help.

Re: Question about Rzeszow PSA 1890 Census #general

"While using JRI-Poland to search my family, I came upon an entry in
the Rzeszow PSA 1890 Census for a family with the surname of "KREMER"
but in the Comments section it says "uzywa nazwiska REIBER" (rough
translation: uses the name REIBER). Does anyone know what this means?
Why would the KREMER would use the name REIBER? I am searching for
REIBERS and one of the listed KREMERs has the correct first name and
birth year, but I do not know if this is the right person. Any help
would be greatly appreciated. Thanks."

Rzeszow was a town in Galicia at the time this census was created and
Galician Jews, in great numbers, did not participate in civil
marriages, only religious ones.

Most likely, your KREMER relative might have had a mother with that
surname, and at the time of birth was listed as "illegitimate" and had
to take her surname, not the father's name, which most likely was
REIBER. Of course, the reverse might also be true, but clearly one of
these was the mother's surname, the other the father's. While not the
"legal" name, this person might still have wanted to be "known by" the
father's name, hence the designation on the census record. (We are
finding many women in these Galician census records also listed as a
"ritual wife" meaning that authorities acknowledged the marriage, but
could not officially recognize it.)

Later on, many these births were "legitimized" by the father making an
appearance in front of the clerk to claim paternity and/or the parents
had a civil marriage, registered with the government, many years after
their children were born, often in anticipation of emigration from
Galicia to America, England, South America, etc. (Many of these
marriages took place in Vienna, en route, and can be found in vital
registries of the Jewish community there, held at the IKG offices and
available online at the excellent search engine:
http://www.genteam.at . You should also search the All Galicia
Database: http://search.geshergalicia.org, which may also have
records for your family.)

If you check JewishGen discussion group archives with some of these
keywords you will find many posts written about this topic.

You should consider this "dual name" listing in the records as a bonus
as it may lead you to the female line of your family that you did not
know about!

Re: FELIXSON family manifests #general

jbonline1111@...
 

It's quite possible that the family members you mention used Yiddish
or Hebrew names on the manifests and adopted the names Max and Louis
after they arrived in the USA.

I learned this the hard way while trying to find my own relatives,
coincidentally called Max and Louis in this country. Their given
names were Mordche and Eliezer. With this information I was able to
find them much more easily, as was also true with many other
relatives.

Hello Genners,

I need some help with 2 relatives that died in Israel in recent
years. I tried using a translator program to serf the net, but it
was highly inefficient. The last known address was in Tel Aviv.

I am searching for my great Aunt, Doctor Marietta BATLER, nee
SIBERDI (she was a dentist). She was born in 1915 in Romania.

Her husband was Abraham Batler, born in 1913. I have been told that
they are both deceased.

If you could send me any info you find about their deaths, it would
be appreciated. They had no children. Thank you.

ViewMate Translation Request - Yiddish postcard (revised) #general

I posted yesterday asking for translation help. I listed the postcard
as being in Hebrew - but it is actually Yiddish. I hope someone can
provide some assistance with this. Thank you and thanks to all of the
respondents who provided the clarification.

I just found this postcard with Yiddish script writing on the back. The
front of the postcard has a picture of my father taken about 1915 when
he was 2 years old. He was in Minsk with his mother; his father had
immigrated to Chicago earlier. I would greatly appreciate your
assistance in providing an English translation of the postcard.

It is a lot more complicated than your sentence makes it appear
to be, but yes, contact has been made with all sorts of people.
No positive results can be guaranteed.
Other ways are also being tried.

Jews in Nantes late 18th Century #france

Alison Greengard
 

According to the Encyclopaedia Judaica,

"At the end of the 18th century a number of local merchants,
in particular the old clothes dealers, instigated the prosecution
of some Jewish merchants newly established in the town; however,
public opinion sympathized with the Jews, as is particularly
evident >from the Journal de la Correspondence de Nantes
[Correspondence Journal of Nantes] of 1789 to 1791, and the
Feuille Nantaise [[Nantes Leaflet]] of 1795.

There were 25 families in Nantes in 1808-09.

Could anyone provide me with the details of this prosecution?
My husband's gr-gr-gr-gr-grandfather Isaac Alfenne was amongst
those newly established Jews in Nantes. Isaac Alfenne was born
in Metz in 1751, had been married in Rouen in 1789, was living in
Nantes in 1791, and was listed amongst the 25 families in Nantes in
1808-1809.

Thank you.
