Viewmate translation required - German to English #germany

Myra Waddell
 

I've posted a passenger list in German for which I would like a
translation for the information given for the couple in this list on
line 9 and 10. They are Enoch and Ester HAUSNER.

My maternal grandparents were known (in London) as Henoch/Henry and
Ester Uzner / Oizner / OSNER. Since I know my Henry and Ester arrived in
England in 1900, I'm pretty sure the HAUSNERs are my grandparents.

I can't understand any of the German and hope that a translation into
English might help to confirm that I have the right couple. They were
born in Khotyn and Kamenets-Podolskiy but I'm led to believe that they
stayed in Vienna for some time - don't know how long - before travelling
on to London.

It is on ViewMate at the following address

Autograph Book from Hirschberg Silesia, etc. 1814-1820 [translation help] #germany

George Bresnick <visionforall2020@...>
 

In the 1980's I acquired a school autograph book in a rare and used
bookstore in London, supposedly sold to the dealer by a Jewish London
family. The autographs with inscribed notes are >from the Hirschberg
Gymnasium (Hirschberg, Lower Silesia...modern Jelenia Gora, Poland),
Lowenberg, Silesia and ?Elaphori.

The dates of the inscriptions span the years >from 1814-1820. They are
written in German, Latin, and Hebrew. I am very interested in working
with a group to translate the inscriptions, and to try to connect the
book to a particular (?Jewish) individual.

The Lions Shul, Doornfontein, South Africa #general

As the High Holidays approach, one can find videos of shuls which are meant to
entice congregants to attend services and new ones to join the shuls. One is the
following link to the historic 108 year old Lions Shul in Doornfontein which was
built in 1906 and is the oldest standing shul in Johannesburg:

Some other links to the beautiful Lions Shul, known for the two bronze lions at
its entrance, are the following which include information on the area:

Yiddish Vaudeville #yiddish

steve725@...
 

I have been visiting the New York Public Library often and perusing
carefully and methodically the Forverts (Jewish Forward), looking for
display ads for Yiddish theatre productions, and when I find them entering
the data (such as play title, opening date, actor, theatre, etc.) into my
master database, which now numbers more than 6,300 productions in North
America.

I recently have become interested in the part that Yiddish vaudeville has
played, as it had occurred often over the first half of the 20th century in
NYC, at least in theatre houses that once and in the future housed
"legitimate" Yiddish theatre, such as the Grand, Prospect, McKinley Square,
Clinton and National Theatres. I have noted the various acts that made up
such vaudeville programs.

I have today posted twice on my "Museum of the Yiddish Theatre" Facebook
page about Yiddish vaudeville, in case you are interested. One is about the
strongman Siegmund (Zishe) Breitbart, who for a time performed at the Grand
Theatre (1924) in NYC. His life story was the basis for the film
"Invincible," which came out in 2001.

You can visit my Facebook page at
https://www.facebook.com/groups/196636633842178/. Of course, if you are
interested in Yiddish theatre and have the time to peruse my page, you will
find loads of photos and information about Yiddish theatre there.

RUBEN family from Philadelphia #general

Judy Wolkovitch <judywolk@...>
 

Joseph RUBEN (1896-1962) was a policeman in Philadelphia. I am trying to
find contact information for the descendants of his second marriage (1931)
to (Zelda) Jean STALLER. Joseph and Jean had a daughter Sonia RUBEN who married a
few times. Sonia married a man named Teddy (last name unknown) and they had two
children Jodi and Bruce. Jodi and Bruce were raised by their father and
stepmother. Does anyone have information about this family?

Many thanks,

Issue 119 of Genealo-J is published #general

Georges Graner
 

Genealo-J, publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of France,
Issue 119, Fall 2014 has just been published

Bernard Lyon-Caen begins a series of study of several interconnected Jewish
families famous in the fields of furniture, advertisement and radio namely
Chouchan, Levitan, Bleustein and others. The first paper deals with the Chouchan
family. This surname is supposed to come >from the Hebrew word Shoushan, the rose,
and has many orthographic variants >from Szuszan in Poland to Bensoussan in North
Africa. The present Chouchan family originates >from Grodno, on the Niemen river in
Lithuania, and successively in Poland, USSR and Byelorussia. Most of them left
Grodno for France between 1890 and 1914 and almost all of them became furniture
dealers : their shops were often competing in the same streets ! Some of these
firms, such as Galerie Barbes, have reached an international fame.

Pascal Faustini, who is a known specialist of Lorraine and Metz, focuses this time
on Morocco and the family Harrosch, Harroch, Haroche. Genealogical research in
Morocco is difficult since official records are only available since 1912. The name
Harrosch derives >from the Hebrew ha-rosh (the head) and is found in the 15th
century in Spain and later many times in cemeteries and documents in several
Moroccan cities. A whole lineage of rabbis can be followed first to a R. Joseph ben
Isaac Harrosch born ca. 1690. He is also the ancestor of my friend Serge Harroche,
who obtained the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2012 and whose genealogy was totally
unknown. The family tradition tells that the Harrosch came >from Spain. Faustini
found a very famous scholar Ascher ben Jehiel, born in Germany around 1250 who
travelled to Cologne, Savoy, Provence, Barcelone and finally settled in Toledo
where he died in 1328. He was nicknamed Ha-Rosh and the nickname Aros is found
several times in Spain before the expulsion 0f 1492. Faustini concludes that the
present Harrosch and Haroche families are descendents of Ascher b. Jehiel.

In Anne-Marie Fribourg’s family, a mysterious “Ovar uncle” was mentioned, who was
said to come “>from elsewhere and >from no country”. An article traces Howard
Dieudonne Loria's route (1866-1947). Born in Liverpool, French in Egypt; an orphan
at 16 in Alexandria, he became a graduate of the Ecole Centrale des Arts et
Manufactures of Paris and a plant manager at Orchamps in the French Jura.

Vital recording for Tunisians was established in 1886 only. The resulting registers
have been available at the Center for French Diplomatic Archives in La Courneuve
for a few years.Yet using them was very difficult due to their fragmentation and
the complete lack of decennial charts. 25 members of the CGJ have been working for
18 months to allow survey and research of these vital records. The resulting
database, called Becane, now available on our Website, is a primary tool for the
genealogy of Tunisian Jews. Thierry Samama details this database.

Since its official foundation in 1753 the Jewish community in Luneville (Lorraine)
has been successively made up >from four kinds of migrants; inhabitants >from Metz
and Alsace, inhabitants >from “Alsace-Lorraine” who wished to remain French citizens
after 1871, migrants >from Eastern Europe, and refugees >from Algeria in 1962 – most
of them coming >from the M'zab (north of Sahara). Françoise Job shows that the
melting pot eventually worked : ashkenaz-sefarad marriages took place.

from a diary held by Edgard See between November 1, 1942 and October 12, 1943 - the
day before his arrest and his deportation - Michele Feldman traces back her
grandfather's life in Paris during the war. She also analyzes his family tree and
finds an ancestor Schlomo See born in Bergheim (Alsace) around 1718. Among his
descendents, she quotes Reissel See, an heroine during the French Revolution,
Camille See, a politician who obtained the right for secondary education for girls,
and Leopold See, the first Jew to reach the rank of general in the French Army.

Pierrette Ouazana studies a vital record >from Mascara, Algeria, 1856. It deals with
the wedding of Nessim Darmon with Rebecca bent Ouazana. She explains how is a
record to be read, what information can it bring forward about the family, and how
a careful study of a record can throw light on entangled family links.

On his way >from the Tafilalet,Morocco, to the Holy Land, the revered Rabbi Yaakov
Abehsera passed away in Damanhur, Egypt in 1880. He was the most famous rabbi of
this Moroccan rabbinical dynasty, described by Mathilde Tagger. His works and
descendants are well known. Nevertheless there exist several versions explaining
the origin of his surname Abehsera (man with a mat, mat maker, sitting on a mat)
but only one version points out at Jubar near Damascus, Syria as the origin of the
family. Which is to be trusted ?

As mentioned in this issue of our Journal, the 4 volumes of the Proceedings of the
2012 Paris International Conference on Jewish Genealogy organized by the CGJ are
now available. They can be obtained in English or in French, in colors or in black
& white or downloaded >from the website. See our website www.genealoj.org for
details.

As we approach the High Holidays, one may find a number of videos and other visual
manifestations of local synagogues where genealogists may locate the religious
institutions their ancestors attended. These may including those which have
closed.

One of these that has closed is the Blackpool (UK) United Hebrew Congregation which
was founded in 1898 (merged in 1907 with another synagogue) and whose poignant last
service on May 13, 1912, is found in the following four part video series:

Steve Morse on Sunday! JGSLA Double-Header on Sept. 21st #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

You are invited to the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles's next program:

Sunday, September 21 at 1:30PM
University Synagogue 11960 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles 90049

A Steve-Morse-a-thon: two lectures sure to get you enlightened and
energized about your own research by the inventor of the One-Step Search Engine:

"One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools"

The One-Step website started out as an aid for finding passengers in
the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterwards it was expanded to help
with searching in the 1930 census. Over the years it has continued to
evolve and today includes about 200 web-based tools divided into 16
separate categories ranging >from genealogical searches to astronomical
calculations to last-minute bidding on e-bay. This presentation,
always being updated, will describe the range of tools available and
give the highlights of each one.

followed by.... "Case Study: Genealogy of Renee Kaufman"

This lecture presents a case study using the One-Step Webpages as well
as other websites to develop a family history. It illustrates how,
with a minimal amount of initial information, an entire genealogy can
be obtained. It also shows how to obtain records in spite of name
misspellings, and how to avoid accepting wrong information.

JGSLA members free. Guests $5.00. Refreshments will be served.
Traveling library available at 1:00PM.
