Date   

1875 arrival #general

Suzecrazy@...
 

Hello again,
I'm looking at my Great grandfather's naturalization papers.
Listen to this one!! He says he arrived in New York on or about the
(squiggle) day of (squiggle) 1875. He resides at 87 Rivington? St and
is a merchant. He is a subject of Austria.
I know that Ellis Getzler had a twin brother, but there is no sign of him.
The lack of an arrival date makes it hard to find anything else, I think.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thank you,
Susan Stock

Visiting the Family Records Centre in Islington? #general

Robert Gleek <Robert.Gleek@...>
 

Dear British Genners,
I know this is a chutspah but I wondered if anyone is
planning to visit the Family Records Centre in Islington?
I am hoping someone may be kind enough to do a quick birth entry look-up.
I am snowed under with work and can't get there myself you see...
I have an accurate date and know it is cheeky,
but since it is the New Year I am hoping someone will take pity on me!
Thank you in advance - and please respond privately,
Best Wishes,

Landsmanschaften...since we're on the subject #general

Suzecrazy@...
 

Hello,

I thought I'd give it another try here. I've contacted YIVO and probably
every resource available to me. My Great grandparents were >from Scroda ,
born 1828. On my GG headstone, in Pa, It is carved in huge letters,
Maimonides Lodge No. 80FSI
It's probably hopeless, but does anyone know about this? Possibly
they never kept records of anythig besides the name?
Sincerely,

Thanks and kind regards,

Book Review in the Rav-SIG Online Journal...
"Meorei Galicia: Encyclopedia Lekhakhmei Galicia" (Encyclopedia of Galician
Sages), Jerusalem, Israel, 1978-1997
Author: Rabbi Meir Wunder
Reviewed by: Chaim Freedman

This five-volume work is one of the most extensive and reliable sources of
rabbinical genealogy written in the twentieth century. The geographic area
covered in "Meorei Galicia" is today divided between southern Poland and
western Ukraine.

As Freedman writes:

"The spiritual shepherds of Galicia were not systematically recorded in the
annals of Jewish history...Therefore there arose the need to fill the void
by creating a tool which would be a guide and point of reference for all
those who enquire about Galician rabbis and their familial relationships. It
was not with a light heart that Rabbi Wunder took upon himself the awesome
task of immortalizing Galician rabbinic scholarship."

The article provides a detailed description of the contents of this work and
contains a sample of the type of information that may found: a translation
of part of the AUERBACH family's entries. For those unfamiliar with the
terminology and abbreviations used in these translations, links to Rav-SIG's
Glossary and Famous Rabbis pages are provided at the end of the article.

Re: Judaica Foundation etc. #galicia

I received an interesting inquiry and I think my
response may be of interest to others.

Dear Peter,
I read your Posting with interest, I did not realize
that there exists a Judaica Foundation IN KraKow ,
today. ( I was under the impression that Poland,
Ukraine, etc discouraged any Jewish Community
activities). Would you have the address and name of
person one may write to at the Judaica Foundation in
Krakow? Is there an archive or University where one
may look for a greatgrandfather who lived there and
graduated >from the University in Krakow in the 19th
century?
With much appreciation,
Kitty Sauber <brucekitty@... >

Dear Kitty,

Jewish activities are not discouraged in Poland. In
contrary, there is a fertile ground for such
activities
now. Members of non-Jewish population often join the
very small Jewish comunity in celebration of Jewish
culture and heritage. The last festival of Jewish
culture in Krakow which ended with an open-air 7-hour
long concert attracted 10 thousand mostly young Polish
spectators. A museum of the history of Polish Jews
will be built in Warsaw. Faculties of Jewish Studies
in Warsaw and Krakow are increasingly popular. There
have been even individual cases of Jewish immigrants
to Poland recently. The number of communities,
cultural, religious, educational and research
facilities, publications and other initiatives is too
large to encapsulate them all in this message.

Of course, anti-Semitism still finds its followers in
certain sections of Polish society as anywhere else
in Europe and the world, but I would rather suggest to
direct your attention to these positive trends as they
are to the great benefit of Jewish genealogists.

Website of The Jewish Community of Poland
http://www.jewish.org.pl/ will help you to locate some
of Jewish organizations in Poland.

Judaica Foundation can be found at
http://www.judaica.pl/

And archives of Jagiellonian University do keep
student files, so there is a chance you'll find
information about your ancestor. For contact see:
http://www.uj.edu.pl/uj-guide/archives.en.html

from your posting I sense that you have not been to
Poland for long. I'd like to encourage you (and
others who read this message)to visit this country, go
to the Jewish facilities, meet local Poles interested
in Jewish heritage, make friends, benefit >from the new
situation.
