Different names for a person: Sara HAMM - Sara LOEWENBERG -Dorchen CHAIM from Posen city ? #germany

Elkeles <Barbara_Elkeles@...>
 

Dear GerSIG,

While the name and live data of my ggg-grandfather, Heimann Itzig ELKELES
(born Posen 1784, died Posen 08 May 1875) are well documented, there are
some difficulties concerning his wife.

In the household books of Posen city starting in the 1840s her name is
constantly given as Sara HAMM, born 1803 in Posen, died there 08 Jun 1862.
There can be no doubt about the reading of the name. But in the death
certificate of Heimann Itzig >from 1875 the name is given as Sara LOEWENBERG.
The same name is also given in the death certificate of two sons, who died
in 1887 and 1912, while the death certificate of the oldest son (died 1891)
says that the name of his mother was unknown. The death certificate of the
youngest son, who died in 1904, gives the name of the mother as "Dorchen
CHAIM".

Civil registration only started in 1874/1875. The Jewish registers of Posen
city are lost. So there is no chance to get an original document.
There is a low probability that Heimann Itzig ELKELES married twice, so that
the youngest son came >from another wife, called also "Sara". There is a gap
of three years between the date of birth of the youngest children (1830 and
1833). But on my opinion they rather are the same person.

I did not find the surnames HAMM, HAIM, CHAIM as Jewish surnames in early
documents >from Posen city (magistrates list >from 1832, naturalization
registers, early city directories). But there were some CHAIM/HAIM at
Schwersenz nearby and in other communities in the region.

There were some LOEWENBERG at Posen city in the 1850ies and later, as far as
known they were born in the province of Posen and later moved to Posen city.
Sara is said to have been born at Posen city, but this kind of information
has been found to be wrong in some cases. Heimann and Sara must have married
about 1821/1822 (the first child was born in 1822), Sara being about 19
years old, her husband about 28, the minimal age of marriage for male Jewish
grooms was 24 in Prussian times at Posen.

I found a similar confusion in other branches of the family >from Posen with
identical first names and different surnames for a wife (Bertha MARGELES and
Bertha BUTTERMILCH, both born in Lissa, the first one in 1815).

Does anyone have suggestions on these contradictions: my own suggestion is
that the father of Sara was CHAIM, who called himself in the process of
names adoption in the 1830ies LOEWENBERG. Or did the name Chaim give the
religious name of her husband Heimann? Any suggestions are welcome.

Yizkor Book Project, February 2019 #belarus

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

There seems to be some unwritten law that despite its shortness,
February always seems to be one of the busiest times in the Yizkor
Book Project and this last one, didn't disappoint.

To begin with, I am more than very pleased to let you know that we
have just completely translated and placed online, another Yizkor
book. This time it is the "Czyzewo Memorial Book" covering the
Czyzew-Osada, Poland community and considering that it entails 1190
columns of text (around 585 pages), this is definitely no mean feat.
Our grateful thanks go out Jennifer Mohr who, >from the outset, has
coordinated the translation of this book with great energy and
dedication. Although the book is now completely translated, Jen is
now arranging for an index to be prepared for the book which is always
an invaluable additional tool that researchers can be good use of.

Continuing on with the good news, I am pleased to let you know that
the 80th book published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project has
recently hit the shelves. The book, "The Jews of Kishinev" covering
the lost Jewish community of Chisinau, Moldova has become a reality
through the enthusiastic coordination of Yefim Kogan and the wonderful
translations of volunteer, Sheli Fain, and of course, the YBIP team
led by Joel Alpert. Our grateful thanks goes out to all those involved
in the translation and publication of this book and for those
interested in learning more about the other 79 books that have been
published, please see the link to the YBIP project at the end of this
report.

Other good news. The New York Public Library has done wonders over
the years to allow us ready online access to an enormous number of
Yizkor books. It has now gone an extra step further and provided the
public with a very useful guide for viewing the online books and also
has provided useful links to other online sites, including our very
own Yizkor Book Project. In my humble opinion, a worthwhile site to
bookmark: https://libguides.nypl.org/yizkorbooks

As Purim is just around the corner, I would like to wish you dear
readers and your families, a very enjoyable time over this upbeat
holiday and wish you a Happy Purim and/or a Purim Sameach.

New findings #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hello everybody,

I want to add to the February report I sent you a while ago.

We transcribed/translated another portion of Miriam Weiner's Archival
Material and found sets of Vital records we did not have before.

Among pages we found Vital records >from Soroki for 1879-1883, 1893, 1895,
1897, 1899, 1904, 1905, 1909, 1910, 1913-1918, 1920, 1922, 1926, 1928, 1933

We have now samples of these Vital records, and also other records for
Soroki, including School records, Registry of holdings of Jews, Voter's list
in Soroki Synagogue and some other lists.

We do not have full sets of these records, only some pages >from these sets,
but we know that these records exist and their Archival numbers, we possible
can order in a future.

Now I am asking people who can read handwriting Russian come forward to work
on these Soroki records.

All the best,

DREIKE - Dortmund and Unna #germany

Mike Redel <redel.mike@...>
 

Dear gersigs,

I hope one of you can help me with this:

The newest Stolpersteine in Unna are for Franz, Wilhelmine, Herta,
Guenter and Margot DREIKE.

Franz was Born 24.09.1879 in Dortmund, Wilhelmine (no maiden Name)
30.04.1885 in Dortmund, Margot 26.09.1922 in Unna and 19.09.1924 in
Unna.

Franz is non Jewish, Wilhelmine is half Jewish. What's happend with
Hertha? There is no entree for her in the 1939 census. They were not murdered
- when did they died, where could I find them? What is the maiden Name
of Wilhelmine DREIKE?

I am not sure, but I think there are different DREIKE families in
Dortmund. I have found a Franz Josef DREIKE who was Born 1910 in Dortmund.
Thanks for any help, Regards,

Mike Redel, Unna - Germany redel.mike@gmail.com

Yizkor Book Project, February 2019 #unitedkingdom

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

There seems to be some unwritten law that despite its shortness,
February always seems to be one of the busiest times in the Yizkor
Book Project and this last one didn't disappoint.

To begin with, I am more than very pleased to let you know that we
have just completely translated and placed online, another Yizkor
book. This time it is the "Czyzewo Memorial Book" covering the
Czyzew-Osada, Poland community and considering that it entails 1190
columns of text (around 585 pages), this is definitely no mean feat.
Our grateful thanks go out Jennifer Mohr who, >from the outset, has
coordinated the translation of this book with great energy and
dedication. Although the book is now completely translated, Jen is
now arranging for an index to be prepared for the book which is always
an invaluable additional tool that researchers can be good use of.

Continuing on with the good news, I am pleased to let you know that
the 80th book published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project has
recently hit the shelves. The book, "The Jews of Kishinev" covering
the lost Jewish community of Chisinau, Moldova has become a reality
through the enthusiastic coordination of Yefim Kogan and the wonderful
translations of volunteer, Sheli Fain, and of course, the YBIP team
led by Joel Alpert. Our grateful thanks goes out to all those involved
in the translation and publication of this book and for those
interested in learning more about the other 79 books that have been
published, please see the link to the YBIP project at the end of this
report.

Other good news. The New York Public Library has done wonders over
the years to allow us ready online access to an enormous number of
Yizkor books. It has now gone an extra step further and provided the
public with a very useful guide for viewing the online books and also
has provided useful links to other online sites, including our very
own Yizkor Book Project. In my humble opinion, a worthwhile site to
bookmark: https://libguides.nypl.org/yizkorbooks

As Purim is just around the corner, I would like to wish you dear
readers and your families, a very enjoyable time over this upbeat
holiday and wish you a Happy Purim and/or a Purim Sameach.
