Robin Brown <rkb155@...>
 

I've posted two marriage certificates. am looking for a direct
translation of both of them. They are on ViewMate at the following
addresses:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=19820
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=19821
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=19822
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=19823

Each certificate is uploaded in two pieces, so even though there are 4

Meir (Max) Weissberg #poland

This is a repeat request.

Meir (Max) Weissberg was my great great Uncle on my father's mother's
side. He was one of five siblings, born to Marcus and Freude
Weissberg in Bukaczowce, eastern Galicia. Of not, Max was a Judaic
scholar, prominent in the Haskala movement. After education in
Vienna, L'viv, Kheyder, Belekhov, and Tshemovits (Cernuati, Ukraine),
Stryj, he settled in Stanislawow >from 1926, where he was an educator
and principal of a local school. He died in Stanislawow in 1930. Of
note, one of his children, Jozef Karol Weissberg (later wrote under
the name of Jozef Bialogorski (Weissberg and Bialogorski translate
White Mountain) renounced Judaism, while living in L'viv, c1921. He
wrote and published several books (in Polish) with erotic themes and
titles.

As they say, I've hit the wall. I would appreciate any and all
suggestions as to where I can search for any details or photos of Meir
Weissberg or Jozef Weissberg.

My renewed interest in finding more details about this man comes from
the fact, that I am discovering more details about Max's nephew (son
of Max's brother, Selig), Samuel Morris Weissberg who was born in
Stanislawow and immigrated to the US, ending up in Cleveland.

Hi, everybody,

I'm looking for information about how people >from other countries lived,
and how they made arrangements to catch ships in Hamburg, when they started
elsewhere.

My g'grandparents DAVID and BESSIE GOLDMAN and 4 kids were >from Lithuania
but went to Hamburg to catch a ship to Glasgow and then another ship to
the US. Don't know how long they were in Germany, but it had to have
been awhile. I'd appreciate any suggestions you may have. Thanks!

Message to descendants of Kedainiai, Seta, Zeimiai #lithuania

Tamar Dothan <dothan-t@...>
 

On August 28, 1941, the Jews of Keidan (Kedainiai), Seta (Shat) and
Zhaim (Zeimiai) were murdered and buried in a mass grave near Keidan.
To mark the 70th anniversary of that event, memorial services are being
held in New York City, Israel and other locations.

In what may be the first such action in Lithuania, the municipality of
Kedainiai and the Kedainiai Regional Museum are honoring the
memory of the 2076 victims of the massacre. Mr. Rimantas Zirgulis, the
director of the Kedainiai Regional Museum, is preparing a list of the
murdered Jews. The names will be memorialized on a plaque located next
to the mass grave. Mr. Zirgulis's main source of information are the
Pages of Testimony at Yad Vashem. But many names are missing. His aim
is to commemorate each individual of the 2,076 victims.

When the full name is known, both the first (given) name and the surname
will be included.
When only a first name is known, it will appear followed by a question mark:
Josef ?
When only a last name is known, it will be preceded by a question mark:
? Smilg
For those whose names are not known, a Magen David will be substituted.

An effort is being made to collect as many names as possible. If you know
of victims in the mass grave in Keidan, please submit their names. But do
first check whether the names are on the Yad Vashem list of Pages of
Testimony. If they are, there is no need to submit them. Please send me
your lists, and I will forward them to the Kedainiai Regional Museum.

Write the name of each person on a different line. Indicate whether the
individual was a married woman, an unmarried female, or a male. [The
names are going to be written in their Lithuanian forms so that the
Lithuanian people will understand these were their fellow citizens. In
the Lithuanian language the surname varies according to gender and marital
status for women.]

Since there were several individuals with the same names, please include
the year of birth and parents' names when known. Enter husband, wife and
children in that order.

For people whose full name you don't know you can itemize it as follows:

Lurie family
Or : Lurie family, husband, wife and children
Or: Lurie family, husband wife and 2-3 children
Or: children and grandchildren of x.
Or: Moshe ? [for an unknown last name]

Please enumerate your entries and make haste. They intend to launch the
plaque in September.

Finally, since names are being collected by more than one source, do
not send your submissions to more than one individual and do not cc the
lists to any duplicate sources.

Thank you.

One other development last week was the name change >from ShtetlLinks to
KehilaLinks. See http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/ . Many of us had
objected to using the Yiddish term for small towns to designate our
communities. It will take some time before all the websites and
references have been modified. But with this change, it now seems to be
a good time to migrate our GemeindeView pages at
http://www.jewishgen.org/austriaczech/gemeinde.htm over to KehilaLinks.

Re: Report from Washington #austria-czech

E. Randol Schoenberg
 

Robert,

We did not take attendance in Washington, but I'd say there were about
25 or more SIG members at the annual meeting. We had quite a bit of
discussion and at the end I called for a vote on a motion to approve
spending the money and it was approved unanimously. I told the
attendees that I would also ask for comments >from the SIG on the mailing
list, which is what I have done. If there are serious objections, this
is the time to discuss them.

As most of us have antecedents or relatives in Bohemia and Moravia, my
feeling was that we could all profit >from making these records
available. The Austrian records are largely available already. Most of
the other SIGs also have projects like this.

Again, please let me know if there are any serious objections.
Considering the value to all of us of making the materials available, my
feeling was that the cost was relatively low, and we have yet to spend
any of our accumulated donations on any other projects.

Synagogues around the World #general

AnnHellman <annmhell@...>
 

Dear Cousins,
The Jewish Heritage Collection at the College of Charleston Special
Collections recently launched the A Synagogue A Day Tumblr. Built using
a popular blogging format, this website features prints, photographs,
and postcards of synagogues around the world >from the William A. Rosenthall
Judaica collection. You can also follow A Synagogue A Day via Twitter.

A Synagogue A Day- Tumblr: http://asynagogueaday.tumblr.com/
A Synagogue A Day- Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/asynagogueaday

The William A. Rosenthall Judaica collection consists of over 100 linear
feet of rare books, fine art, postcards, illustrated journals, greeting
cards, pamphlets, broadsides, newspapers, cartoons, caricatures,
etchings, chromolithographs, watercolors, medallions, stamps, and
textiles. The materials document the Jewish people: their lives,
history, religious ceremonies, dress, and customs. A particular
collecting focus of Rosenthall was images of synagogues located around
the globe, including European synagogues destroyed by the Nazis or converted
to stables and warehouses. Many items are one-of-a-kind and therefore
represent a unique and valuable source for scholars. For more
information on Rosenthall and his collection, please visit the William
A. Rosenthall website: http://rosenthall.library.cofc.edu/

This is a great chance for us to see the synagogues where our ancestors
prayed. Other parts of his collection will be coming on line as they
are digitized. Also check out the Jewish Heritage Collection,
http://spinner.cofc.edu/~jhc/?referrer=webcluster&, and The Jewish

Dear All

I felt I just had to relate this story. And basically it is all to do
with the work and research we put into our family trees.

I live in Manchester, England and many years ago three of my Manchester
cousins (older than I) went to live in Australia. When the grand-daughter of
one of them was in Manchester on a visit about 7 years ago she came to
visit us and of course I have kept in touch over the years. She lives in
Melbourne, is now married and part of Chabad.

Whilst writing to her today I mentioned that a young lady on another part
of our family tree was married to a Chabad Rabbi in Scotland and I mentioned
the name of the town. She wrote back and asked me was the surname
XXXXXXXXXX because she had a friend nearby in Melbourne who was >from
the same town in Scotland with the surname XXXXXXXXXX. I looked at
the family tree and low and behold the great great grandmothers of both
of these girls were sisters!!!!!! One of them was my own grandmother.
What a small world!!

So you never know who lives around the corner or maybe sitting next to you
when on holiday!!!
