Geneen Hotel (Scotland) owners names #unitedkingdom

Angie Elfassi
 

Hi,

Several years ago I heard >from a cousin who is related to me on my mother's side
(my mother and her father were siblings) that she/we had some sort of connection
with the owners of Geneen Hotel in Scotland. The relationship she mentioned
might be >from her mother's side.

Anyhow, I wrote about it at the time on this site and some people replied.

Im wondering if anyone know's Mrs. Sophia Geneen's maiden name. The fact that
some years have passed, maybe some people have new information.

And with DNA now around, if I have a surname, I can try and find a relationship.

Thanks.
Regards,
Angie Elfassi

New Book: History of the Jewish Community of Schoenlanke 1736-1940 #poland

Gary Mokotoff
 

Peter Simonstein Cullman has produced yet another magnificent
history/yizkor book about a German town that today is in Poland.
"History of the Jewish Community of Schoenlanke 1736-1940" represents
six years of meticulous research, into the more than the 200-year
history of the Jewish community of Schoenlanke (today Trzcianka, Poland).

The Schoenlanke book's narrative commences with an illustration of the
Jewish existence in German lands in the age of Charlemagne, the birth
of the Polish nation and the impact of geopolitical upheavals on Jewish
life, while extraordinary heights of Jewish culture were reached in
16th century Poland. The reader is led to witness the evolution of
the community's religious life under Prussia's pedantic rule in tandem
with the Jewish Enlightenment. A portrait of Jews in war and peace,
an introduction to the community's social fiber and its venerable
rabbis is followed by an analysis of a history-making religious
conversion of one of this community's members.

Extensive annotated community registers of the early 1800s may allow for
genealogical research by linking the ancestries of early families to the
near present. The book concludes with the chapter Lo tishkach ('Do not
forget') identifying Jewish victims and survivors of the Holocaust >from
the town. This exceptionally detailed biographical documentation of the
lives and fates of the community's hundreds of victims and survivors of
the Holocaust serves as a memoir of a once flourishing Jewish community
that ceased to exist in 1940.

The book is 480 pages, hardcover. Ordering information, including the
complete Table of Contents, can be found at
http://www.avotaynu.com/books/Schoenlanke.htm.

MODERATOR'S NOTE: This is a one-time allowable mention of a commercial
offering that may be of genealogical interest to readers of this list.

Ivanogorod - Deblin/Demblin - Irena - Ryki - Bobrowniki Searches in Lublin Area #poland

Susan Welsh posted a great question on this digest. She wrote:

The Jewish Communities of Ivanogorod, Deblin/Demblin, Irena, Ryki and
Bobrowniki in the Lublin Area have a complicated and interwoven recorded
history which is too complicated to explain here, but the place of civil
registration for these communities appears to move around these towns
throughout the 19th century and a complete exploration of any of
these towns requires the complete exploration of all of these towns.

JRI-Poland has several projects in process to extract the records for
these towns, and the projects are in varying stages of development,
depending on the number of volunteers and amount of donations we have
for these projects.

Please contact me, at RobinnM@aol.com for more detailed information
or to learn how you can help.

3 Dutch sisters with the same given name ??? #germany

Werner Frank
 

The official Dutch nineteenth century records of one Jewish family
show three daughters, all with same given name of Marianne. The first
daughter passed away within two years of birth. The second Marianne
was born shortly thereafter....certainly an acceptable naming practice
in those days. However, there is a third daughter, born two years
after the second, that also is given the same name which seems highly
suspect.
A confirmation of this seeming curious practice are the marriage
records of the two sisters wherein the parents names are identical.
Can anyone explain this anomaly.
