Kfar Daniel cemetery #general

Alan Steinfeld
 

Hi,
I recently learned that some relatives were buried in the cemetery at
Kfar Daniel in Israel. There is no listing for a cemetery in this
village in the JOWBR Cemetery Inventory nor is there a listing on
Find A Grave.

Can anyone confirm that this cemetery exists and supply its proper name?
If anyone is in a position to help with a photo of 2 stones at the
cemetery, please contact me privately.

Thanks,

Sources for information on rabbis in Galicia #general

Judith Singer
 

In case anyone else is interested in researching rabbinical genealogy
in Galicia or wants to know the rabbis of various towns, these are the
suggestions I received in response to my question about sources.
Unfortunately for me, there is very little available in English.

Meorei Galicia (Encyclopedia of Galician Sages), 5 volumes, compiled
by Rabbi Meir Wunder contains genealogies of Galician rabbinical
families, listed alphabetically by surname. For prominent rabbis of
each family there is additional biographical material, including
rabbinical compositions, responsa correspondence and photographs.
There is also a town index. It is on-line at
http://jgaliciabukovina.net/limited/digital_books but you have to pay
a small fee to join to get access. It is in Hebrew, but there is a
name index available in English on Gesher Galicia.

Another truly comprehensive book is Otzar Harabanim, compiled by Rabbi
Nathan Zvi FRIEDMAN, which contains 20,000 entries covering the period
930 - 1970. Entries are arranged by first name and then by surname,
with surname and community name as "book name keys". It too is in
Hebrew. I don't know its availablity.

Letoldos Hakehillos Be'Polin lists rabbis in Poland by town.

The Biographical Handbook of Rabbis is a bibliographic directory of
all the rabbis since the Enlightenment who worked in or came from
German-speaking countries. It is online at
http://www.steinheim-institut.de/wiki/index.php/Biographisches_Handbuch_der_Rabbiner_%28BHR%29
[or http://tinyurl.com/gwwcdbn --Mod.]
It is in two parts:
Part 1: The rabbis of the emancipation period in the German, Czech and
Polish large countries, 1781-1871 contains entries for 1,952 rabbis
who were employed in or came >from the German Bundestag and the East
Prussian provinces and Part II: "The rabbis in the German Reich,
1871-1945". Each part can be downloaded for free, but it is huge and
the download would take quite a while (my computer was estimating 4
hours and I have high-speed internet). It is in German.

Gesher Galicia's All Galicia Database includes a few different List of
rabbis >from the 1860s

Another source that has been suggested is the B/M/D registers for each
town. These were submitted to the state annually, and were signed and
sealed by the official "chief rabbi". The officiant at the bris or
wedding should be noted on the record. The Mormons have microfilmed
many of these registers, so they could perhaps be found in the
FamilySearch catalog.

WALTER ELIAS
 

I am looking for any information about the Shtetl of MOKRANY about 16km east
of MALARYTA. Interested in how large the pre-war community was, percentage of
Jewish population, any WWII history, if there is a Yizkor book and whether there
are living descendants of MOKRANY families who might get in touch with me.
Thank you.

Looking for someone to test for the Y-DNA? #dna

Arline and Sidney Sachs
 

I wrote a computer program to list everyone past or present that belongs
to my haplogroup. This will work for any haplogroup. It can also be used
for someone looking for a relative to test. I use are our members GEDCOM
files to accomplish this. Beginning with the known member, the program
follows the paternal line back as far as it can go to the earliest person
and then finds all males lines descended >from him. The output may be
useful for someone who is having trouble finding a person to test since
that person may be a direct cousin. I am willing to run the program with
your GEDCOM file. The only other information I will need is the id number
of the person whose haplogroup you want to find. I will return a tree to
you before I destroying the copy of your GEDCOM file.

Family from Seduwa/Shaduva #lithuania

Paul & Sharon Bernstein <izrabeez@...>
 

My great-great grandparents [ SHER - Serras - FAMILY ] were >from the
same town as Eric's "paternal Grandmother who came >from Seduwa/Shaduva"

The ALD database
https://www.litvaksig.org/all-lithuania-database/search-ald
has quite a lot of information (FYI, most of my family - the next 2 or 3
generations are >from Saulaia - a lot more records are available - as
Shavel was/is the 3rd. largest town in Lithuania).

FYI, I've been in touch with Milda Jakulyte-Vasil - who is the curator
of the Seduva Memorial Museum in Vilnius, who provided me with a
contact-researcher in Lithuanian State History Archive -
- as well as a contact (Jurate Zulpaite) at the Jewish Museum-Memorial
in Seduva.

Please write me privately for the contact information.

FYI, some relatives of mine in south Africa have managed to arrange
Lithuanian Passports etc., it is/can be a rather costly process, but
certainly doable.

Where are the vital records of the town Modliborzyce (Poland) #poland

Hello

Modliborzyce town was in the region Yanov / Lublin in Poland:
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~community~-517039

In JRI's list of towns, Modliborzyce not shown. It says it was probably
a small town, and its vital records registered in another town.
The question is, where?

Thank you very much
