Jacob,
You are correct. When I was sending the information, I was only thinking of
the synagogues. The college of Charleston site is awesome. The address is

http://www.cofc.edu/~jhc/

It contains:
About the Collection . SC Jews Tell Their Stories . Oral History Archives
Field Work Files . Publications. Exhibition

Hope this helps anyone searching in Charleston, SC.

It may of interest to all the Genners to know that the College of
Charleston has a big Center for Jewish Studies with connection to
the Jewish Historical Society of SC.As far as I recall they also
have a lot of publications which contain chunks of genealogical
value.Charleston is one of the oldest Jewish communities in the
New World.One of the oldest synagogues,actually a Temple >from the
18th century is still in use.

Los Angeles Jewish newspaper, 1970-1980's #general

I remember the B'nai B'rith Messenger well (my parents used to receive it
weekly when I was growing up), and yes, it had obituaries (no idea if they
were paid or not--I somehow doubt it, since there were many of them, and
they were fairly short). It was a weekly paper. You would probably need to
search Jewish library catalogs in LA (University of Judaism, HUC, etc.) to
see who carries copies and whether it has been microfilmed. Davka was a
journal of some sort, not a newspaper. I have never seen Heritage, but it,
too, was a newspaper, I believe.

B'nai B'rith Messenger; Davka; Heritage-Southwest Jewish Press. All
feature Los Angeles addresses.

Not actually having seen these publications, I cannot say for sure
whether they all carried death notices.

I have located death notices for a relative and his wife in the LA Times
(1978 and 1982)...... What Jewish newspaper in LA might have had an
actual obituary? I am looking for the children of this family,
obviously, if there are any.

Anyone from Charleston, WV? #general

Eleanor Feldman <elcharfel@...>
 

Have you ever heard of a FRANKENBERGER Department Store in the Charleston,
WV area? I'm helping a non-Jewish friend who just discovered that his
grandfather was Jewish. He remembers that his mother said her family was
associated with a department store.

I have found the name FRANKENBERGER in JewishGen's The Family Tree of the
Jewish People (FTJP) and made a match.

Please contact me directly as I do not subscribe to the general listserv,
only to the Ukraine listserv for my family. Thank you very much.

Re: Galicia luncheon #galicia

Shelley K. Pollero
 

It is most regretful that some of you have been inconvenienced by the date
change for the Galicia luncheon and will not be able to attend. This
situation was beyond our control.

There seems to be some confusion regarding refunds for those who now cannot
come to the luncheon. Therefore, here is a message that appeared today on
the LV2005 list:

If you have already signed up for a particular lunch which is now changed to
a different day, you can either switch it with another lunch or the
Conference Committee will refund the luncheon cost to you *at the
conference*.

Please contact the registration company directly if you want to switch to
another lunch. You can contact the registration company directly at
1.800.805.3976 (toll-free) or by email at: <IAJGSInfo@yesevents.com>.

When I registered for the Las Vegas conference, I purchased a ticket
for the Galicia luncheon. Now that the date has been changed, I find
I cannot attend as I will be leaving las Vegas in the morning, but
the luncheon tickets cannot be refunded. So if anyone has not yet
purchased a ticket and needs one, please contact me privately. I
would be most appreciative.

I hope this clarifies the situation. We will miss those of you who had
already made other plans for Thursday July 14, the new Galicia luncheon
date. We certainly hope to see you at the Galicia SIG meeting and BOF and at
the SIG Fair.

Bohemian, Moravian and Silesian Kreis - historical website #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

If you have ever puzzled about the Kreis -
administrative districts - of Bohemia, Moravia and
Silesia, this website should be a great help:

http://ekeil.gmxhome.de/vwe-a-m.htm

Even if you do not read German, you will find a Table
"Liste G", which shows that the number and names of
the Bohemian Kreis changed constantly >from 1350 to
1862.

At the time of the 1793 Jewish census of Bohemia,
there were 16 Kreis - the highest number ever.

"Liste L" gives the Kreis names for Moravia from
1529-1860. Here you can clearly see that in the period
1850-1855, the number of Moravian Kreis was reduced
from a high of six Kreis to only two, namely Brunner
and Olmutzer. I wonder if this radical reorganisation
had anything to do with the apparent muddle in the
location of Moravian records? Records >from one
Moravian administrative centre many have been
transported to another - and then never returned when
the six Kreis were reintroduced in 1855.

"Liste M" has details of the Silesian Kreis and some
historical information about the Silesian situation.

This website should solve many of our Kreis problems.
There are maps to identify the location of the Kries -
names of the administrative centres for each Kreis are
given; area and population statistics are also
included.
