Re: Who could leave Austria 1939-1940? #austria-czech

Eva Lawrence
 

While there were strict laws on what possessions Jewish people leaving the
country could take with them, the main problem was obtaining a visa for the
destination of choice. Germany and Austria were only too glad for Jews to
leave - as long as they left their money behind. USA and Britain required
a sponsor who would guarantee that they would not become a financial
liability to their new home, and only a citizen of the destination country
was acceptable - in the case of England, he also had to be British-born.
So there had to be a deposition of money, and also quotas were imposed.
Often it was a question of what persons of influence one knew - such as the
Baroness mentioned.

New education course - The Jewish in Jewish Genealogy #poland

Nancy Holden
 

JewishGen Education will offer a new online forum - The Jewish in
Jewish Genealogy
May 1 - May 29

Genealogy is more than statistics and facts. This class will give
you a chance to understand the Jewish immigration experience and
we'll discover tricks and tips to successfully search for Jewish
ancestry.

With each passing generation, the torch passes to children whose
lifestyle is further >from the immigrant experience. Now we have to
dig deep in order to bring up images and voices >from the past, to
understand and recreate their lives.

This class will cover Jewish institutions in the old country and
in the U.S. It will help a researcher discover patterns and
prejudices that affected the way life was lived in the new country.
Jewish life cycles, customs and culture, origin of family names and
naming practices, assimilation and acculturation, migrations
patterns and surname mapping will be part of this study.

For this class a student will work on one immigrant family and the
town (or city) where they first settled -- New York, Chicago, St.
Louis or points west. The course includes general research tasks
and assignments to give insight into the Jewish search.

Class is taught in a *forum* setting, private to this class. The
site is open at all times for students to post. The instructor
answers posts daily. Cost is $120 for 4 weeks. The full class
description is at

Newbie question - reconciling death records #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

The information in the ALD is >from the original death record in the
Lithuanian Historical Archive (LVIA) and is correct. The information on the
headstone was furnished by the living family members and their information
will not always be accurate. They are depending on family stories in
most cases.

You will have to ask JewishGen about the burial registry question.

Looking for descendants of Rabbi Mordechai ZACKHEIM 19th Cent. Pinsk &/or Karlin #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I am searching for descendants of Rabbi Mordechai ZACKHEIM who may
have been born in Ruzhenai (which I am not sure which) and served
during his latter years as a Rabbi in Pinsk (or Karlin). He passed
away around the middle of the 19th century.

He may have had a descendant who was the chief Rabbi of Cholon or
Bat-Yam in Israel many years ago.

I have a hand written document which mentions that he was a relative
of our and would like to confirm this fact and learn more about it.
Yes, I know about George ZACKHEIM's "The Scattered Seeds" and hope
someone on these list are among the long line of R' Mordechai's
descendants.

TIA and Shabbat Shalom >from Jerusalem.

Vital Records from 1925 to 1927 Vilnius / Wilno #rabbinic

Peggy Freedman <peggyf@...>
 

The Vilnius District Research Group of LitvakSIG has translated another
batch of records for Vilnius / Wilno during the interwar period. This
data set contains marriage, divorce and death records for the years 1925
to 1927, including over 1500 marriage and divorce records and almost
2200 death records.

These records are rich in Rabbinic names, I'm not sure if it is because
many Rabbinic lines included lots of children or if many of these names
are common. Some in particular that I noticed are:

Izrael-Iser KACENELENBOGEN
Nochim KACENELENBOGEN
Samuel ROMM
Rebecca ROM

I have posted surname lists for all these records with a count of the
number of times a surname appears on the public part of our Shutterfly
website at:
https://vilnius.shutterfly.com/
The file is an excel spreadsheet called "Extracted Surnames Vilnius
City." These spreadsheets include surnames >from many of the lists we
have translated, not just these new records.

All the translations, including all the details of given names, mother's
maiden names, patronymics and more, are available now to qualified
donors of the Vilnius DRG. You can become a qualified donor by making a
US$100 contribution to the Vilnius DRG on LitvakSIG's secure website at:
http://litvaksig.org/contribute
This data will be freely searchable and available in the JewishGen
Lithuania Database at the same time it is made available in the
LitvakSIG All Lithuanian Database -- approximately 18 months >from
LitvakSIG's receipt of the translations.

Your donation will help us translate additional records. We currently
have over 40,000 records in the pipeline to be translated, we have
translators eager for the work, but we need your financial support in
order to make the records available in English indexes.

Let me know if you can help!
