Carol Hoffman
 

LitvakSIG's online journal is proud to announce the publication of the
research article, "What Census Records Tell Us about Jewish Families
of 19th Century Lithuania, a Case Study" the Shtetl Zeimelis
1816-1853, written by Anatolij Chayesh and translated by Sonia Kovitz.

The research shares and analyzes information out the Jews of the
shtetl Zheymeili (current city of Zeimelis, Lithuania) contained in
the 7th, 8th and 9th revision lists (census records). Further it
demonstrates the benefits of studying those census records of entire
Jewish communities rather than solely of individual families, and
provides insight in the digitized data files available.

I've posted two parts of the same 1903 marriage record. The first part
is a marriage record. The second is the side-note, with possibly
information about the couple's divorce (the divorce was mentioned
in the groom's 1911 marriage record >from Warsaw).

I will be grateful for a full translation of the divorce, and
translation of the date the marriage took place.

Celebrating Purim with a Yizkor book excerpt on the holiday on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

Each Friday, we publish an excerpt >from a Yizkor Book that JewishGen has
translated, but today is a special edition in celebration of Purim, which begins at
sundown tonight. (If you are not familiar with the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project,
please click on this link: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/faq.html)

"Purim in the Shtetl" is a vivid account of the holiday celebration in Kaluszyn,
Poland, about 35 miles east of Warsaw. S. Ben Moshe-Aaron recalls that "even before
Purim started, the shtetl acquired a festive mood." Boys got out of school early
and roamed the streets in colorful costumes, the reading of the Megillah was
rehearsed, women made treats for the holiday and then quit the kitchen and got
into their finery to go to synagogue, and then the "festivities lasted late into
the night." The townspeople feasted happily "believing that Haman was annihilated."

English translation of the 587 page Jebenhausen and Goeppingen Jewish community history is now available on line. SITE CITE #germany

John Paul Lowens <JPLowens@...>
 

In mid-November I reported that an English translation of the monumental
"History of the Jews Residing in Jebenhausen and Goeppingen
By Dr. A. Taenzer - Rabbi in Goeppingen was being provided by GerSIG
veteran Steve Weil of Chicago and would soon be available for reading,
key word searching and download as a PDF file.

The translation is now on line at:

http://www.lbi.org/digibaeck/results/?qtype=3Dpid&term=3D5595734

A click on the book title or on the icon to the left of the title will
let you display and download the entire book as a pdf.

*** All of the community history sections of the PDF file
are searchable by key words. ***

However, another part of the book, the family charts section called
"Pedigrees of the following Families:" was not translated but copied
from the 1927 German version. Those pedigrees and charts are included
as graphic images of those pages. That means the content of those pages
is not machine readable, i.e. cannot be word searched.

According to LBI Director of Research and Chief Archivist Dr. Frank
Mecklenburg, "The other shortcoming is that the pagination
[of the English version] does not correspond to table of contents."

Goeppingen (Goppingen - O umlaut) is at 48 : 042' N - 09 : 40' E
107.3 miles SSE of Frankfurt am Main. It is slightly
southeast of Stuttgart. A list of other Jewish communities located
within 10 miles including Jebenhausen is at:

Steve Weil of Chicago, Illinois, is a charter member of GerSIG who was
active in German Jewish research long before our SIG was organized in
1998. He was part of the group that founded the journal "Stammbaum".

Mr Weil has spearheaded and supported the complete translation of Dr.
Aron Tenzer's 1927 History of the Jewish Community of Jebenhausen and
Goeppingen (updated in 1988).

Steve's single handed oversight and funding of the project is an important
contribution to the genealogy field, and good example for us all.
GerSIG joins Dr. Mecklenburg and Karen Franklin at LBI in thanking Steve
for his extremely generous contribution of work and financing to this endeavor.

3 German language editions of the book are also available at
The Leo Baeck Institute. Search for them via: https://www.lbi.org/

The German version of the book is listed in the GerSIG Community
Histories bibliography at:
https://www.jewishgen.org/GerSIG/communities-g.htm

Die Geschichte der Juden in Jebenhausen und Goeppingen
Aron Taenzer 1871-1937.
Berlin : W. Kohlhammer, 1927. 1927 573 pages
