Seeking Information on Frederichshof! #germany

Jeni ArmandezZiara <jeni.armandez@...>
 

Hello Fellow Genners! I am pleased to say that I have been slowly making my way
through my mum's paternal side. I found that my great-great grandmother,
Caroline KELLER nee CONRAD was born in 1830 in a village called Friederichshof,
Prussia, supposedly not far >from Berlin.

I am not positive on my spelling of this village and very little information
comes up when I try to search for Frederichshof. Does anyone know anything
about it? Caroline had a total of 12 children with Isaac KELLER. They later
moved to London where Caroline passed away at the ripe age of 101 in 1931.
She is buried at Edmonton Cemetery in England.

I have only been able to access the Naturalisation papers for Jules KELLER
(one of the sons) so I have no further information. These papers did state
that both Caroline and Isaac were both former subjects of the Empire of Germany.
One thing to note is that Caroline was well educated for her time. Before coming
to England, she spoke German, Polish, Russian and Hebrew. Perhaps I am too quick
in making an assumption that her family was not poor. I know when the family
moved to England, they were not.

I am most grateful for anyone's information on this area. Please respond
privately unless you think your info would be of value to the group.

Thank you, Jeni Armandez Los Angeles, CA <jeni.armandez@...>

Dear Genners,

I am trying to understand something about my great grandmother's tombstone. The
first line reads: he aleph shin het het tzadik lamed vav ayin chet
I think that it means, the woman, the Soloveitch. Am I right? the second line is
her name, Sheina, the third line reads bat reb Yacov Meir

Can anyone help me with this?

Thank you in advance.

your quests.

Joyce Field
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce an update to its burial registry,
JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR). Approximately
50,000 burial records and 25,000 new photos of matzevot have been
added. At
<http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm> there
is a complete listing of the 2,033 cemeteries and plots in the
searchable database, comprising 1,074,427 records.

Noteworty additions to the database are:

-Basavilbaso, Argentina: 1,653 records
-Iasi, Romania: 18,000 new records
-Petach Tikvah/Segulah Cemetery, Israel: 2,900 additional records and
6,100 photos
-Toronto, Canada: updates and additions of photos to 60 Toronto cemeteries
-Southwest and Midwest U.S. cemeteries: 4,700 new records and 8,700 photos

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Re: Lithuania census after 1918 #lithuania

Olga Zabludoff <ozabludoff@...>
 

Deena Berton wrote in the Digest of Monday, January 5:

"Carol, if you are looking for the 1923 Census of Lithuania, I suggest you
explore the Record Group 2 Collection at the YIVO Institute for Jewish
Research in New York. A number of years ago, I found what appeared
to be a list of residents and another list which was a street by street
listing in this collection for my family shtetl, Pikeliai."

Years ago I too found at YIVO a list of the Jewish community of Dusetos
(Dusiat). It was written in Lithuanian and was arranged in alphabetical
order, so it was very easy to work with. The list was compiled in 1923
and seemed very comprehensive, including every family name I knew of
in the shtetl and others, of course.

When I asked Dina Abramowitz, the YIVO head archivist at the time,
about the list, she told me it appeared to be a census of the Jewish
community of Dusetos. At the time I wasn't sufficiently knowledgable
to ask her if it was part of a larger national census. I was just delighted
with the discovery and copied it.

The list has three columns: surname and given name; age; occupation.
However, no one under age 22 appears on the list, leading me to believe it
might have been compiled for voting purposes.

Another rare find I experienced was in 2003 when I visited Butrimonys. The
mayor and priest of the town gave me a 1937 census of the Jewish population.
That too is written in Lithuanian and includes ALL the members of a family
and their ages. I was told this census had been commissioned by the Church
in 1937 and had literally been lying in the Church archives since then. I
have never been able to find out if such a census had been made for all the
Jewish communities in Lithuania or whether Butrimonys was unique.

Yizkor Book Report for December 2008 #usa

During the month of December 2008 the Yizkor Book Translation Project
added two new books, two new entries, and six updates. All
additions have been flagged at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html>.

New books:
-Bender, Moldova
-Glinyany, Ukraine, <http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Glinyany2/Glinyany2.html>

New entries:
-Kolki, Ukraine, Pinkas HaKehillot, POLIN, vol. V
-Stod, Czech Republic

Updates:

-Bedzin, Poland
-Czestochowa, Poland
-Czyzew, Poland
-Dabrowa Gornicza, Poland
-Lita
-Nowy Sacz, Poland

This is the last yizkor book monthly report that I will be writing as
I am leaving JewishGen at the end of this month. It is impossible for
me to describe how much I have enjoyed seeing this project grow and
prosper in the past decade. None of this success could have been
possible without the dedication of all the donors,translators, and
project coordinators who have contributed their talents to this
project and without the tireless devotion of the staff of this
project--Lance Ackerfeld, Israel; Osnat Ramaty, Germany; Max Heffler,
U.S. Our stated goal was by translating these books into English to
unlock the valuable information contained in yizkor books so that
genealogists and others can learn more about their heritage. We have,
I believe, succeeded in the past ten years but there is still much to
be done. My best wishes to all for your future successes.
