See you in DC! #lithuania

Susan E. King <susan.king@...>
 

As we put the finishing touches on our preparations for the 23rd
International Conference on Jewish Genealogy in Washington, DC, we look
forward to seeing many of you there. Always a highlight at these
conferences is reuniting with old friends and meeting new ones.

JewishGen is looking forward to several major announcements and the
launch of some very exciting research tools during our evening
presentation on Tuesday, July 22. You will see that we have been quite
busy behind the scenes this year.

JewishGen continues its ongoing commitment to preserving our Jewish
heritage. Since January 1, 2003 and becoming affiliated with the Museum
of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, we have been
able to clear the data backlog and begin in earnest to implement systems
for presenting data in ways never before possible.

We have purchased and deployed three brand new higher-end servers to
handle the workload we are currently experiencing and that which we
anticipate in the near future. We have also been able to use one of the
older servers to migrate the Ellis Island Database systems for better
access.

To accomplish all we have done so far this year, we have nearly depleted
the funds that we raised >from the First Annual Appeal we began last year
at this time.

We know that if you review all that we have accomplished in 2003
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/WhatsNew.html and see what will be coming in a few short weeks, you will agree that our commitment is stronger than ever!

Your commitment to JewishGen is more important than ever. Your financial
support will provide essential means for us to continue the momentum and
to allow JewishGen to share all of these exciting resources with our
growing global community.

JewishGen's Second Annual Appeal starts NOW!
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/>

Our goal, $1,000,000!

With your help, JewishGen will reach a milestone of over 1,000,000 new
records in 2003 alone. With your ongoing financial support along with
the tools and technical resources now in place, we can keep these
numbers growing at phenomenal rates. Look at it this way, for every
dollar you commit, you will be supporting one NEW record to be available
to the JewishGen community !

from time to time, we hear >from many of you who participate in the
JGFFAlert about the great success you have had with this value-added
service. Over the course of the next week, while we put the finishing
touches on "what" is to come, it would be great if those of you who have
had success with the JGFFAlert, or with any of JewishGen's other
services, could share these success stories with us all.

Not only would such sharing provide new ideas and concepts to help break
through specific barriers to research, but these stories are, in their
own way, perhaps the best testament to the commitment JewishGen has for
all who have an interest in their Jewish heritage.

Look around. Where else can one find the synergy of participation, the
commitment of resources, the sharing of information, and the creativity
for projects that can open up new opportunities for our research?

Your gift today will ensure that these objectives can be met. Your gift
today will ensure that we can bring forth records that have never before
been available to us.

We thank you all for your kind words and your support through 2003.
Together we can make this a year to remember!

Given names #lithuania

Bettylou Rosen <rosenb1@...>
 

I need some help >from the given name mavens. I'm working with records
pulled >from the Vilnius Central Archives. I see my relative's name
listed as Jesna, Sija, Sije and Hansejas. I'm sure they are all the same
person. I know the name translates to Joshua. I see his wife listed as
Chase and Chasta. Her official name was Glel.

What is the significance of all these forms of the name? Where do they
come from?

Is "Rause" in Base Rause, part of the given name?
I've consulted Gorr's "Jewish Personal Names" but it hasn't been much
help.

Many thanks.

SCEZUCZYNSKI (became MILLER), from Lida or Vilnius, Lithuania #lithuania

Merle Kastner <merlek@...>
 

I am having difficulty researching my g-g-grandfather,
Aaron [ben Moishe] SCEZUCZYNSKI, who emigrated
from Lida or Vilnius, Lithuania in either 1892 or '93. He quickly
took on the name MILLER, as 4 of his 8 children, already living
in Philadelphia, were known by that name.

I have tried searching on JGFF, but soundex produced
no researchers looking for the name SCEZUCZYNSKI.

I would welcome any ideas or suggestions.

R'Sussman BRILIN (Worms, Fulda) #rabbinic

Pascal FAUSTINI <pascal.faustini@...>
 

I wanted to add a piece of information to the tree sent by Michael
Bernet.

- Sara, the wife of Isak BRILIN (d. 1678), was the sister of Samuel
OPPENHEIMER; she was a daughter of Simon Wolf OPPENHEIMER and Edel.

- Isak and Sarlan BRILIN had a brother who died in Worms on 24 Adar
421(*) (= March 6th 1661); the Grüne Buch of Worms (page 170b) calls
him "R. Zenwil ben har. R. Zusman ABD Fulda". This brother had a
daughter who died also in Worms in Tamuz 447(*) (see Memorbuch,
p. 21, line 11), she is called "marat Frumet bat Shmuel Zanwil
BRILIN".

- according Löwenstein, Isak BRILIN was rabbi in Worms >from 1644 to
1659, before he lived in Hamelburg.

SIG Fair in Washington, DC #poland #lodz

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

To those planning to attend the conference,

We still need some people to help cover the LARG SIG Table at the
SIG Fair being held on:

Tuesday 9-11

and

Thursday 10:30-12:30.

Thanks to those who already signed up for time slots. If you can
sit at the table even for only a half hour, please let me know. We
will be displaying posters listing all the LARG towns, a poster
about recent findings in Lodz, handouts, and a continuous slide show
with music of 17 of the towns in LARG. Thanks to all of you who
submitted photos for this. There will also be explicit instructions
for anyone who asks how to join the SIG.

Here is a description of the Fair: "The SIG Fair is designed as an
educational exhibit when each of the member groups of IAJGS will
have a table to display information about their communities,
research, programs, activities and the benefits of SIG membership.
Materials on the tables might include maps, books, research
data/information, Web site information, and a large map, sign and/or
banner identifying the group. The organizers can provide an easel
for display in addition to the table. Volunteers >from each group
should staff their table to handle questions about their region of
interest and their SIG."

*** Please respond privately ***

Thanks.

Looking forward to seeing you.

FRAKT - any background on the surname itself? #belarus

Michelle Frager <lulu_brooks@...>
 

Dear Group:

There seem to be several researchers working on ancestors with this
surname and, in my experience anyway, we have trouble finding any
suggestive links.

I wonder if anyone has any information on the origin of the name? It
doesn't show up in Bieder (sp?); only moderately simliar surnames are
listed. Its' meaning presumably relates to burdens or 'freight'. But
is there any information available as to its creation? Or any other
source than Beider to look into?

Hoping to learn something on this frustrating surname,

Re: SS Empress Britain #belarus

Joseph Fibel <JFibel@...>
 

Dear Adar,

I regret to tell you that the Morton Allan Directory ends with 1930 for the
Port of New York and 1926 for the Ports of Philadelphia, Boston and New
York.

According to the book, Ships of our Ancestors by Michael J. Anuta, the S.S.
Empress of Britain, which was built in 1906 belonged to the Canadian Pacific
Lines. I do not know if this company or its successor still exists but I
would try to find this company and interrogate them. Apparently this ship
was retired because a newer ship with the same name was commissioned in 1955
by the same line.

The picture in Anuta's book came >from the Peabody Museum of Salem (Mass) to
which I would also send an inquiry.

The Journal of Commerce, a daily paper, I seem to recall, showed ship's
arrivals, so maybe they can help with this.

In the front of Anuta's book is a list of the places which have ship's
pictures and in the index are dozens of places that have ship's information.
The book is available at many libraries and I would think also >from
"Avotaynu".

I hope some of these help.

The Tauber Report - 2003.07.09 #rabbinic

Larry Tauber <Ltauber@...>
 

Dear RavSiggers:

As George Costanza once said "I'm back baby!" >from a short trip to
Europe anyway, or more to the point, the Machberes column, after
about a month of dealing with community issues ranging >from silk
screened ketubot to the validity of Eruvim to appointment of new
Dayanim, has returned to the topic of Rabbinic genealogy. I am a
little behind and will try to catch up. Here are a fistful of gems
contained in the June 20, 2003 issue of the Jewish Press:

1. R. Dovid HALBERSTAM married the daughter of R. Aryeh Leibush
HOROWITZ. R. Dovid is the son of R. Ben Zion Aryeh Leibush
HALBERSTAM. The bride's father is the son-in-law of R. Shlomo
HALBERSTAM (1907-2000), former Bobover Rebbe.

2. Yisroel SPITZ married the daughter of R. Shmuel Dovid KRAUSZ,
son of R. Shalom KRAUSZ. Yisroel SPITZ is the son of R. Aaron Tuvia
SPITZ, son of R. Moshe SPITZ. R. Aaron Tuvia SPITZ is the
son-in-law of R. Eliezer HAGER (Seret-Vishnitzer Rebbe of Haifa),
son of R. Boruch HAGER (1895-1963), son of R. Yisroel HAGER
(1860-1936) and author of Ahavas Yisroel [further info below).

3. The son of R. Yitzchak Mechel MOSCOWITZ [son-in-law of R.
Mordechai HAGER, Vishnitzer Rebbe of Monsey], son of R. Chaim Yosef
MOSCOWITZ [Descendent of R. Meir of Premishlan] married his cousin,
the daughter of R. Eliezer HAGER of Lakewood [son-in-law of R. Dovid
TWERSKY, Skverer Rebbe of Boro Park], son of R. Mordechai HAGER,
Vishnitzer Rebbe of Monsey, son of R. Chaim Mayer HAGER (1897-1972),
son of R. Yisroel HAGER listed above, son of R. Boruch HAGER
(1845-1893), son of R. Menachem Mendel HAGER (1820-1884), son of R.
Chaim HAGER (1795-1854), grandson of R. Menachem Mendel HAGER (first
Kossover Rebbe), son of R. Yaakov Kopel Hasid HAGER-KAPILETIS (d.
