IAJGS Welcomes New Member - The Anyksciai Cousins' Club #general

Nolan Altman
 

On behalf of the IAJGS Board and our current membership, it is with great
pleasure that we welcome the Anyksciai Cousins' Club as the newest Associate
Member of our growing family of IAJGS organizations. The Anyksciai Cousins'
Club is a group of descendants >from Michael Nossen Berman of Anyksciai,
Lithuania and his extended family. The group's ongoing purposes are sharing
family history stories, photos, trees, DNA projects, and preserving their
common past, whether meeting in-person at annual IAJGS conferences, at
reunions or other events, or on-line. For more information about the group,
please contact Marlis Humphrey at marlis@vitreouscom.com

The group's next meeting will be a virtual meeting using the IAJGS
Go-To-Meeting resource. Their subsequent meeting will be an in person
meeting at the IAJGS Annual Conference on Jewish Genealogy in Cleveland,
Ohio, (https://www.iajgs2019.org/index.cfm ), the city where many of Michael
Nossen Berman's descendants still reside. Several of the members are
professional or very experienced genealogists and continue to work to knit
their cousins and the descendants of Anyksters together using the paper
trail of records, oral histories and memories, and DNA.

The IAJGS is very excited to admit Anyksciai Cousins' Club as our first
Cousins Club member. There are many synergies between Cousins Clubs and the
IAJGS goals. Cousins Clubs meet the objectives of the IAJGS as defined in
our bylaws, primarily, to collect, preserve, assist, promote and disseminate
knowledge about their family to other members of their organization.
Cousins Clubs also have an interest in the IAJGS' work to keep records
public to allow for continued research. Similar to local JGSs, through
their annual membership, Cousins Clubs can help support the work of the
IAJGS for the benefit of all IAJGS members and the greater Jewish
genealogical community. We would be very interested in hearing >from other
Cousins Clubs about membership.

The International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) was
formed in 1988 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. IAJGS is an umbrella
group of organizations which provides a common voice for issues of
significance to its members, to advocate for and educate about our
genealogical avocation, and to coordinate items such as the annual
International Conference on Jewish Genealogy. For more information on
IAJGS, please see our website at http://www.iajgs.org/blog/ or contact me at

I have recently discovered that I have several ALBAHARY family buried
at the Jewish cemetery in Craiova, Romania.
Does anyone in this group live in or near Craiova? I would like a
picture of the gravestones, but do not live in Europe.
Information I have >from burial record is:


Heinrich ALBAHARY, died (buried?) on 27 April 1943

Gertrude ALBAHARY died 1953 buried in plot 3-3-12-6bis

Finding graves of Heinrich and his wife Gertrude are most important.

Was Interrupted Travel to the US from Poland Common? #galicia

Sheldon Rabin
 

I'm researching my great-grandmother Reisel (Perlmutter) Wiesen, born
1871 in Rozwadow (now Stalowa Wola) Poland. Because there is so little
info available on her, I found myself ranging into databases that I might
not typically access in the hope of finding something.

I found an entry for 1888 in the 1850-1934 Hamburg Passenger Lists for
a Reizel Perlmutter, (female) age 17, born about 1871 in Rozwadow, Galizien.
Reizel was traveling on the ship Lincoln that departed Hamburg on 1 May
1888 destined for New York City with a stop in Grimsby, England.
According to the manifest, the passengers were to connect with
Nordamerika via Liverpool. Reizel was traveling only with her 10-year-old
sister, Feige.

The problem here is that Reisel never visited the US, not in 1888 nor any
other time. There are no Ellis Island entries for any single female named
R. Perlmutter until 1900. And so, I was wondering if it was common for
emigrants to decide mid-trip not to continue on to the States but instead
to halt their voyage, in Reisel's case in England, and to return to their
country of origin at some later time?

We know that Reisel married Zvi Hirsh Wiesen in Rozwadow in the early
1890s and had four children including my grandmother Ettel Sara
Perlmutter Rebensaft born in 1894.

Am I interpreting Reisel's apparent travel itinerary correctly? And was her
apparent change of heart common among emigrants >from Poland and
elsewhere?

Thank you.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake
 

Itsik Trastinetski was one of a group of Jewish activists rounded up
by political police in Poland, all of whom were subjected to torture.
His own treatment was brutal and when his captors saw that he was
physically broken to the point that further torture was superfluous,
they then tortured his closest friends within his sight. He was taken
to the town hospital, still bound in chains, where people >from other
wards hurried to hear what he had to say, even as doctors closed the
windows so he could not be heard in other pavilions. Trastinetski's
sarcastic response was "See, my hands and my feet are bound in
chains, but you cannot close my mouth" and with the call "Long live
freedom!," he gave up his spirit. Such was "Itsik Trastinetski's
Martyrdom," a chapter >from the Yizkor book of Kremenets, Vyshgorodok,
and Pochayiv.
