JewishGen's JOWBR Update - June 2016 #poland

Nolan Altman
 

JOWBR Grows to Over 2.8 Million Records!

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2016 pre-Conference update to
the JOWBR (JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The
JOWBR database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/
If you're a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you take a look at the
first two explanatory screencasts at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/

This update adds approximately 103,000 new records and 28,000 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 540 cemeteries. JOWBR now
includes 2.8 million records >from 6,400 cemeteries / cemetery sections
representing 123 countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals,
Jewish genealogical societies, historical societies, synagogues, cemeteries
and museums. We appreciate all our donor's submissions and the
transliteration work done by a faithful group of JewishGen volunteers.

JewishGen wants to thank Eric Feinstein who has been instrumental
in sourcing and coordinating foreign records, especially >from France and
Germany. JewishGen would also like to thank Eric's team of data entry
volunteers; Sandra Bennett, Sharon Duckman, George Jiri Goldschmied, Henry
Graupner, Ann Meddin Hellman, Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord,
Adina Schwartz, Marilyn Shalks, and Suzanne Tarica. In addition, JewishGen
thanks our volunteer transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, without whom
we would not be able to add the information >from some very difficult to
read photos.

Significant additions to the database include collections from
Brazil (Rio de Janeiro area), France, Germany, Italy (Milan and Torino),
Moldova, Romania (Timisoara), Slovakia (Neologicky Cintorin), Ukraine
(Chernivtsi) and the United States. Check
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm
for a complete listing of our inventory by location.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you
to make additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery/cemetery
section individually or consider a group project for your local Society,
temple or other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR
database and make it possible for researchers and family members to find
answers they otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations
you may be affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing
that would consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

Significant additions to the database include collections from
Brazil (Rio de Janeiro area), France, Germany, Italy (Milan and Torino),

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you
to make additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery/cemetery
section individually or consider a group project for your local Society,
temple or other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR
database and make it possible for researchers and family members to find
answers they otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations
you may be affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing
that would consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

Issue 126 of Genealo-J [Muhlhausen near Bamberg, Alsace & more] #germany

Georges Graner
 

Issue 126 of Genealo-J, the Journal of the French Jewish genealogical
Society (CGJ) has just been published.

The cover of this issue shows the portrait of Tobias Koen (1763-1849).
He was the podiatrist of Emperor Napoleon and of Empress Josephine and
after the fall of Napoleon, the podiatrist of King Charles X. Bernard
Lyon-Caen knew he had a vague relationship with this man but he was
surprised to discover he actually was his own ancestor. He found that
Koen's birthplace was one of the several cities called *** Muhlhausen in
Germany, *** specifically the one at 20 km >from ** Bamberg, in Bavaria. **

Lyon-Caen visited Muhlhausen and found the tomb of Tobias Moses and
Ribika, Koen's parents. During his long life Koen lived through the
reigns of five kings, one emperor and two republics. It should be noted
that Koen was the only Jew among the 38 members of Napoleon's medical
staff. Tobias had six children and more than 600 descendents of which
Lyon-Caen gives an extensive list. Let's finish by a small amusing
detail. Tobias Koen had for a while his Parisian office at 27 rue de
l’Échiquier, within a few meters of the place where our society moved
two months ago, at number 16 of the same street.

Anne-Marie Fribourg was interested in the Laufer family and especially
in Madeleine Laufer (1808-1865) and her illegitimate children. They were
born in Foussemagne, Morvillars and Ensisheim, all situated in ** Alsace.**

Between 1846 and 1947 about 250 foreigners of Jewish origin who had
immigrated to Barcelona (Spain) or were born there decided to convert to
Catholicism. Martine Berthelot-Puig-Moreno analyzed their cases through
the archives of Barcelona diocese. Ten percent of these persons
converted between 1931 and 1936, none during the Spanish Civil war
(1936-1939) and 66% between 1939 and 1947, when the government of Franco
was a friend of the Nazis and when it was dangerous to appear as a Jew.
The author shows how the foreign family names were wrongly transcribed
and how the given names were hispanized or were accompanied by Spanish
names. After World War II, a certain number of these people went back to
Judaism. But several of them did not go back to Judaism but,
nevertheless, were buried in the Jewish cemetery.

Eliane Roos Schuhl, who is our specialist of Hebrew palaeography, spent
twenty years to find the mohelbuch of Dambach, Alsace (1669-1727). This
register of circumcisions was written by David Levy, born in 1646, and
is pasted in the pages on an old ritual book (a mahzor) printed in
Venice in 1568. Eliane has deciphered all details of this manuscript
including several anecdotes written in the judeo-alsatian dialect. She
gives a detailed analysis of the 293 circumcisions of boys belonging to
a dozen of different communities.

The French Cour Constitutionnelle is roughly the equivalent of the U.S.
Supreme Court but its members are appointed for a nine-year term only.
Recently, on March 8, 2016, the president of this Court, Jean-Louis
Debre transmitted his responsibility to his successor Laurent Fabius.
These two presidents knew that both had Jewish ancestors but they did
not know they were cousins. To proof this was a child game for our
members. They proved that Debre and Fabius had four different common
ancestors : Akiba Elie Trenel (~1710-1774), Salomon Israel Zay
(~1540-1627), Mardochee Halphen (~1555-1631) and Isaac Hesse (~1660 -
<1715). The three former lived and died in Metz, the last one in
Puttelange (Moselle). Within the Trenel branch, Debre is Fabius' fifth
cousin, once removed. Within the Hesse branch, Debre is Fabius" eighth
cousin, once removed.
