Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois Oct. 25, 2015, meeting: "The Greenebaum Family: From the Rheinpfalz to Chicago" #general

events@...
 

"The Greenebaum Family: >from the Rheinpfalz to Chicago" will be the
topic of a presentation by Joan Adler, executive director of the Straus
Historical Society in New York, at a special joint meeting of the Jewish
Genealogical Society of Illinois and the Chicago Jewish Historical
Society. The program will begin at 2 p.m. Oct. 25, 2015, at Temple
Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook, Ill.

The JGSI meeting facilities at Temple Beth-El will open at 12:30 p.m. to
accommodate those who want to use or borrow genealogy library materials,
get help with genealogy websites or ask genealogical questions before
the main program begins at 2 p.m. For more information, visit
http://jgsi.org/ or phone 312-666-0100.

The Greenebaum family originated in southwestern Germany in the
Rheinpfalz. They were a large and observant family, pious in all ways.
They were prosperous merchants who suffered many hardships due to
changing political conditions in their region. After immigrating to
Chicago in the mid-1840s, they became the founders of some of the city's
outstanding financial, religious and philanthropic institutions,
including KAM Isaiah Israel Congregation, Ramah Lodge of B'nai B'rith
and the National Council of Jewish Women. Adler's talk will illuminate
the Greenebaum family's history, both in Germany and then in America and
will touch upon the factors that contributed to their success.

Joan Adler, executive director of the Straus Historical Society, has
spent the past 25 years researching, documenting and disseminating
information about the Lazarus Straus family >from the Rheinpfalz area of
Germany. The Greenebaum/Gruenebaum family are progenitors of the Straus
family.

In describing her work, Adler said, "I have come to think of my work as
'social history.' By this I mean, placing the details of people's lives
into context: learning about the times in which they lived, the
political, social and economic conditions that affected their daily
interactions, and how they chose to deal with these factors."

She writes extensively about the Straus/Gruenebaum family in a
semiannual SHS newsletter that is distributed in paper form and can be
found on the Straus Historical Society website,
www.straushistoricalsociety.org. Adler frequently speaks to large
groups at historical and genealogical societies, schools and museums.
She is the author of "or the Sake of the Children: The Letters Between
Otto Frank and Nathan Straus, Jr." and compiler/editor of several other
books about the German Jewish families she researches.

The Straus family were early owners of R. H. Macy's & Co. Adler was
asked to research the family in 1990. As a result of her efforts, a
project was begun to read, translate, transcribe and organize more than
100,000 pages of Straus family personal papers.

While this program is free, those who join the Jewish Genealogical
Society of Illinois have access to several valuable members-only
resources on the JGSI website. They include video recordings of a dozen
presentations >from past JGSI events, valuable informational handouts
from past speakers, access to past Morasha newsletters containing
informative articles about Jewish genealogy, the syllabus >from the 2015
JGSI conference, and more. To learn more about the benefits of joining

Re: Locating Palotza #hungary

Renee Steinig
 

According to a listing on JewishGen of "Towns Represented in 1869
Saros Census Films of Jewish Records"
<http://www.jewishgen.org/hungary/Data/Saros/1869%20SAROS%20JEWS%20in%20Towns.htm>
a town called Palocsa was in the same district (Felso Tarcza) as
Berzevicze. Perhaps this was "Palotza." (It wouldn't be the first time
that country of origin was wrong on an emigration or arrival record!)

The current name of Palocsa is Plavec and Berzevicze is Brezovica nad
Torysou. Both towns are in Slovakia -- about 8 miles >from each other
"as the crow flies" and about 17 miles by car.

Viewmate Russian Translation Request #poland

Fay Bussgang
 

I've posted a vital record in Russian for which I need a translation. It
is on ViewMate at the following address ...

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM42561

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

I would appreciate the translation of the headings and of all words in
Entry Numbers 3 and 4, which I believe are Torunczyks (possibly Szmul
Chaim (1868) and Chana (1877).

Thank you very very much.

Project juden-in-mecklenburg.de, photos/stories #germany

Jürgen Gramenz <juergen@...>
 

Dear Gersigers,

http://www.juden-in-mecklenburg.de is a private initiative for
reconstructing the former Jewish history of Mecklenburg,
an area located in North-Eastern Germany which is today being valued as
a touristic destination.

There are already a few similar projects for some Mecklenburg towns
but we are focusing on an entire view for Mecklenburg on a regional level.

And we need some help...

We are looking for old photos of synagogues and Jewish cemeteries from
Mecklenburg (a complete list of the towns can be found here:
http://juden-in-mecklenburg.de/Ort

As important as this are photos, stories and facts >from former Jewish
inhabitants of Mecklenburg, especially regarding the Nazi period.

As we have already learned it is difficult to reconstruct this period
simply out of the town archives as most of the documents >from that time
have been lost or even "lost".

Today it is quite impossible to tell what really happened in the
smaller towns, for instance, during the "Judenboykott" on 1st April
1933 or the "Reichskristallnacht" on 9/10th November 1938
(or the oral stories are just very nebulous).

We also would like to collect these stories and conserve them, later
probably in a printed version.

We would be very happy if you could have a look into your old shoeboxes
and remember some stories you've been told.
Any help or hint would be much appreciated.

Best regards, Juergen Gramenz, Halle, Germany juergen@gramenz.de
