Joseph and Drana Sher (Share), mid-1800's in Kadan (Kaunas), Lithuania #general

Rick Cohen
 

I am seeking information of any kind, in regard to my above-named
paternal g-g-grandparents, particularly anything reliable as to
dates/locations of their births/deaths. I have good information on my
great-grandparents, Morris (Maurice Eleazar) Sher (born1865 in Kadan
(Kaunas) Lithuania;died 1930 in Minneapolis, Hennepin Co., Minnesota),
and his wife Fannie Kolansky (Frima Kurland), b.1875 in Kadan, died
8th of August, Hennepin Co., Minnesota. Also, I know that Drana Sher's
maiden name MIGHT have been Garber, and that her sisters' married
names were Sarah Goldman and Molly Goldberg. There was another sister,
Hannah, and a brother Sam. I have not been able to find anything on
Sarah Goldman, or siblings Hannah and Sam.

The name Sher has been variously spelled as Sherr
and Share. For example, my great-grandfather Morris Sher's brother
Hymen Louis spelled his last name Share. He and his wife Lena (maiden
name, I think: Mervitz), are buried in Richfield, Minnesota, along
with the other Sher's with whom I'm familiar. I know that Drana's
sister Molly was married to Shorl Hersh Goldberg, the two of whom I
easily found on Ancestry. Also, Frima Kurland's last name seems to
have been spelled in a variety of ways: Karlanzik and variations
thereof, etc. (In the U.S. censuses, she used the first name of
Fannie.)

The slightest of hints or guesses by any of you, would be
inexpressibly appreciated.

Records of a divorce within the Jewish community of Hamburg in the 1790s #germany

Jeffrey Herrmann
 

My 4th gr.-grandfather, Michel HERSCHEL (aka Meyer Michel HERSCHEL)
was born and lived his entire life in Hamburg. He apparently married
Rane HERSCHEL (possibly a cousin) on an unknown date, although I have
found no marriage record. They had five children between 1790 and
1798.
But in 1800 my 3rd gr.-grandfather, Bernhard Passach HERSCHEL was born
in Hamburg to Michel HERSCHEL and his then wife, Louise WOLFF
(daughter of a prominent Jewish banker in Halle an der Saale).
Although Loiuse WOLFF is described as his wife, I have found no
marriage record. Moreover, Rane HERSCHEL was still alive and lived in
Hamburg until 1839.

The straightforward possibility is that Michel divorced Rane before
1800. If so, what records would one expect to find in the Jewish
communities of Hamburg and nearby Altona?

The second marriage, if there was one, is unrecorded in Hamburg. If
it took place in Halle an der Saale, where would one be likely to find
records of it?

Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland July 21, 2019, program #general

Susan Steeble
 

Speaker: Sara Ani

Title: "Travels through Lithuania to Discover Litvak Heritage"
Date and Time: Sunday, July 21, 2019, 1:30 p.m.
Location: Pikesville Library meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Rd.,
Pikesville, MD

Please join us on Sunday, July 21, 2019, to hear Sara Ani present
"Travels through Lithuania to Discover Litvak Heritage".

Many of our ancestors came >from Lithuania, and while 96% of
Lithuania's Jews were murdered in the Shoah, it is possible to
travel in their footsteps in present-day Lithuania.
In this presentation, Sara Ani will share what she saw on her trip
to Lithuania last summer. She not only visited the mass killing
sites and memorials to victims of the Shoah and their decimated
communities, but also observed the ghostly remains of Jewish life
before World War II.
She even found her great-great-grandmother's grave!

You will follow in her footsteps to see what life was like in the
shtetls of Lithuania before the war and will view the remnants of
Jewish homes, shops, synagogues, cemeteries, and Yeshivot as well as
the places that marked the mass destruction of the Litvak community.
You will hear pertinent information on how to find some of the more
obscure locations of mass graves and forgotten cemeteries as well as
helpful hints on getting around in Lithuania, finding a guide, and,
for those who keep kosher, learning where to stay, pray, and eat.
Sara will share some of the research she did that made her travels
more meaningful and more productive and will discuss the question:
"Where do we go >from here?"

Sara Ani has a curious mind and enjoys solving mysteries.
She became interested in genealogy when she inherited a multitude
of family photographs and documents >from her dad and aunt.
She set out to identify the people in the photographs and to
set the record straight on some of the mislabeled documents.
She created a coherent family history >from letters, documents,
family lore, and artifacts. She enjoys visiting cemeteries, and
she translates headstones and documents them as a Find-A-Grave
volunteer. She loves to travel and actually see the places
connected to her family, learning the history behind the locale.
She is a member of the JGSMD and enjoys writing articles on her
discoveries for its newsletter.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members
(applied to JGSMD membership fee) after their first meeting.
Please check our web site at www.jgsmd.org for late updates and
for the time, location, and program of future meetings.

Jews in the Polish Army 1919-1939 #poland

Derek Stavrou
 

Shalom to the Discussion Group

During my research into my wife's TUCHSCHNEIDER family in Sosnowiec,
I have come across a number of photographs of family members in
Polish Army uniforms during the 1920s.

Can anyone tell me where I can find a good source of information about
the service of Jews in the army immediately after the Great War:
When did conscription start, >from what age, length of service,
were Jews in all corps and brigades, conditions of service,
reserve duty, etc. ?

Secondly, is there an accessible online source where I can identify
uniforms and cab-badges?

Thirdly, what is the likelihood of finding individual military records
for non-officer military personnel in the regional archives?

With sincere thanks for any information, and good wishes >from a
sweltering Israel.
