Dear Shneor,

Whereas the chief rabbi of the town would be the "Oberrabbiner" the
Subrabbiner would no doubt have been the assistant rabbi, or simply
not the Oberabbiner.

As 2015 draws to a close, we acknowledge those who have devoted
countless hours to our organization. In particular, their work makes
the ongoing translation of the Vilnius 1850-51 Revision list and the
Kaunas 14-Jul-1940 electoral list possible. Our volunteers also
translated lists and vital records for other District Research Groups
during the year.

We are grateful to each of them.

Extractions of 1860-1883 Bedzin records - new JRI-Poland project #poland

Jeffrey K Cymbler <jcymbler@...>
 

Long-time Bedzin, Sosnowiec, Dabrowa Gornicza and area researchers
will be pleased to learn that Jewish Records Indexing - Poland has
undertaken a major new "Phase 3" project to fully extract all Bedzin
birth, marriage and death records >from 1860 to 1883.

Until now JRI-Poland's indices for 1860-1883 years only contained names
of the persons in the birth, marriage and death records and the year of
the record (act). This is the only information appearing on the index
pages JRI-Poland purchased >from the Katowice Branch of the Polish
State Archives many years ago. These index pages did NOT include
actual date of the event, names of parents, spouses, ages, place of
birth, town of permanent residence or other genealogically relevant data
contained in the records.

To carry out this major record extraction initiative, JRI-Poland
arranged to acquire scans (digital images) of the 1860 to 1883 Bedzin
records in the Katowice Archives. The scans are now on hand.

When data entry for this new project for 1860-1883 records has been
completed and funded, JRI-Poland will have full extracts of all Bedzin
records >from 1808 to 1883 online.

NOTE: Every birth, marriage or death of Jews residing in Sosnowiec,
Dabrowa Gornicza, Strzemieszyce, Czeladz, Zagorze and Modrzejow
was recorded in the Bedzin town hall in the years 1860-1883.

There are 7354 record entries to be extracted. 5663 of these records
(1868-1883) are in Russian. JRI-Poland will be employing Russian
speaking experts in Poland to translate and data enter these records.

The fundraising target to pay for the 1860-1883 scanning and extracting
project is $2,400. Researchers making a qualifying contribution of $118
or more will be eligible to obtain an Excel file with all records for
their family. When funded, the data will be added to the currently
available (full extracts of) 1826 to 1859 Bedzin records in the
JRI-Poland database.

Kindly note that the fundraising target mentioned in the last paragraph
reflects a reduction of $1,100 which are the surplus funds in the
original Bedzin 1860 to 1883 indexing project.

As Town Leaders, we would be delighted to answer any questions that you
may have and we look forward to receiving your financial support for
this project.

Contributions to "Jewish Records Indexing - Poland" may be made by
check, bank draft, money order, or Visa or MasterCard. The web site
for the credit card contribution and general instructions is:

JRI-Poland is an independent non-profit tax-exempt Organization

extent permitted by law.

Belarus SIG #Belarus RE:1887 list of Jewish owners of linen-processing factories in Belarus #belarus

JHRG of Belarus <belshtetl@...>
 

Dear All,
By the mid-19th century, Russia had become the largest country exporting
linen to Europe. It was used for in the production of fabric, oil, cords and
cables. It became one of the fastest-growing industries in Russia.
Some wealthy Jews were investing in linen processing factories, most of which
were in northwest Russia, including today's Belarus.
By the end of the 19th-century, in the territory that's now known as
Belarus, had some 70 linen-processing factories; 41 were Jewish-owned.

Here is the 1887 list of Jewish owners of linen-processing factories in
Belarus:

origin of MIRMOVITSCH family name #belarus

Joel Blankett <jnblank@...>
 

I would be interested in hearing any insights mailing list subscribers
may have into the meaning or origin of the family name MIRMOVITSCH
(variant spellings: Mirmovich / Mermovich / Mirmovitz).

The family of my maternal grandfather, Yechiel David MIRMOVITSCH, lived
in the town of Ryasna (or R'asna), some 60 km east of Mogilev
(Mahilyow), Belarus.
I know there were other Mirmovitsch families living in the same area of
eastern Belarus, in towns and villages on both sides of the present
Russian-Belarus border.
But I have so far not been able to establish any family connections.

Thanks for your help.

INTRO-Researching SCHLOSS, SEEMANN, SCHWARZSCHILD and more #germany

Melody Schloss
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group to help research my husband's German Jewish
family lines. I have been doing genealogy research for 30 years and
consider myself pretty knowledgeable in research here in the US, but
more of a beginner when it comes to German Jewish records.
I live in Santa Barbara CA USA and my native language is English.
I can read some German, and have tried to learn to decipher some old
German schrift but am definitely a beginner there.
I am good at use of the internet for searching purposes, but am not
very tech savvy when it comes to figuring out functional issues.

As I said, I am researching my husband's lines:

Father: Gert SCHLOSS b 15 Sep 1921 Hannover Germany d USA
Grandparents: Isel (Julius) SCHLOSS b 2 Nov 1887 Zimmersrode Germany d USA
Hertha SEEMANN b 4 Apr 1895 Kassel Germany d USA

My primary research goals are to find the lines for Moritz SEEMANN
and Johanne SCHWARZSCHILD who died in the Theresienstadt Concentration Camp.
I know nothing of their parents or beyond.

Johanne SCHWARZSCHILD who was b 1872 possibly in Ahlem,
married Moritz SEEMANN and died in Theresienstadt Concentration Camp
31 Mar 1943. Johanne had two sisters Sofie and Rosa.
Sofie married a CORNELIUS and had children Ellen and Heinz. Rosa

and died 25 Apr 1943 in Theresienstadt Concentration Camp.
He and Johanne were residing in the Judische Alterheim in Hannover
when they were deported. Moritz had a sister Thekla who married
Alexander HIRSCHBERG in Dierdorf. Thekla and Alexander emigrated to
the US in 1936 and resided in Brooklyn, New York. I believe Thekla
died there but have been unable to locate a death certificate because
of unknown death date.

In reference to Walter ELIAS question about Jewish soldiers in World War I,
I'd like to remind that at war's end the League of Jewish Frontline Soldiers -
Reichsbund juedischer Frontsoldaten -RJF was formed . About 100.000 Jews
living in the Reich had enlisted,in the Army, Navy and Colonial Forces ,
of whom about 12,000 were killed . Forcibly closed in 1934, the League was
re-established in 2006 under the name Bund Juedischer Soldaten (RjF) e.V.
You should ask them about your grandfather..
