Good family tree site #southafrica

Boaz Lasky <boazlas@...>
 

I recently came across an unusually well presented site which includes
an extended family tree of over 22,000 individuals, shown in two
different versions. The main roots of this tree are in Poland but the
tree stretches out all over the world and I noticed many South African
and Israeli branches. The site is bilingual, in English and in Hebrew.
It has an interesting section on Rejoweic in Poland. Family documents
and photographs are shown and there is a Yizkor section showing pages
of testimony >from Yad Vashem.

Re-Introduction: ROSENBAUM, JACHZEL, BUCHBINDER (Galicia, Silezia, Bohemia, and other places) #austria-czech

Eli Rohn <elirohn@...>
 

Greetings,

This message has 3 parts:
- Introduction
- Paternal Genealogy (in scope of this group)
- Maternal Genealogy (out of scope, but interesting)

Introduction
------------
Born and raised in Israel, I've been interested in my family's genealogy
since I was about 14 years old. That was three decades ago... even at that
time I asked family elders to write down what they know of their ancestors.
Many had no interest in collaborating, some had no clue, and only a handful
provided a written gold mine, that was later used to verify information
obtained elsewhere, or to initiate formal searches for documents in archives
located in Spain, Portugal, Germany and Czechoslovakia. The search in Spain
and Portugal was carried out by another member of my extended family, who
eventually published 1 book in German and 3 books in Hebrew about the
family's history. Most of the Hebrew version was translated into English by
his brother; it's available electronically for people with interest in
Spanish or Portuguese roots.

I've been a member and a $upporter of the JewishGen project for well over 5
years. I salute Sharla Levine and Celia Male for their leadership. We're all
indebted to them.

Paternal Genealogy

On my father's side I am searching for BUCHBINDER, ROSENBAUM, JACHZEL (and
variations on the name, such as JACHCEL, YACHZEL, etc.), >from Galicia,
Silesia, Bohemia, and other places.

The oldest BUCHBINDER I have is Yakob BUCHBINDER, born 1827 in Osoblaha,
Silezia and died August 04, 1876, in Opava (now in Czech Republic). Yakob
was married to Fanny POLLAK, born March 23, 1832 in Lichnov (Lichten, in
German) and died on November 01, 1908 in Opava (Troppau, in German).
The oldest ROSENBAUM I have on record is Hermann (Elchanan Zvi) ROSENBAUM,
born circa 1840 in Lenkavice, Poland, married to Rosi JACHZEL who was born
on January 06, 1849 in Rychwald, Galicia. The couple moved to Ostrava where
they lived the rest of their life.

Maternal Genealogy

Although not in scope of this group, it is of interest to note that on my
maternal side I have documented genealogy that goes back to the 1100's in
Spain and Portugal. The extended family had a fleet of ocean going boats for
several generations. When the Jews were expelled >from Spain, and later from
Portugal, family members that were not imprisoned or cruelly tortured and
murdered by the Inquisition's "loving" hands ended up in many places, as far
as South America, the Caribbean, Holland and Germany. Last names are YICHIA,
DE-MILAO, HENRIQUES, and many more. The portugeese who fled to Germany later
became GLUCKSTADT. GABEL and ENGELBERG were added to this tree by marriage,
three and four generations ago, in Germany.

Re: Introduction - HAZELKORN - FUCHS #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Whilst we all welcome Marcia G. Hoffman as a member of
our Austria-Czech SIG, I was really surprised to read
her statement" I was researching in Galicia but at the
25th conference I was told that I would do better
focusing on this list".

My instinct and the evidence of the two names
HAZELKORN and FUCHS immediately alerted me to Galicia
and Poland where Jews, as late as the end of the 19th
century, were very often named officially by their
mother's maiden name, because of the marriage
regulations/restrictions - [religious vs civil].
But as the word "Austria" appears on Marcia's records,
I would make a *beeline for Galicia*.

Thus, my paternal London grandmother is named Sara
KLEINOT on my parents' July 17th 1932 wedding
certificate in Vienna*, but on my father's London
birth certificate >from 1893, she is called Sara
KELBIG! I have traced my KLEINOTs >from Plock -
{probably her maternal name} but have never found any
KELBIGs also >from Plock. I have found a few listed on
Jri-pl.

re Marcia's query: I looked a Jri-pl [Jewish Records
Indexing Poland] and found this entry:

Breine Riwka [female] born in 1888 Akt 72 Signature
1837; Father Ozias HASELKORN Mother: Cipe FUCHS
District Lany
Narajow PSA AGAD B 1877-95
Tarnopol Wojewodztwa / Ukraine
(records in Fond 300 in AGAD Archive)

I know the dates are later than the family we are
looking for, but these family relationships often
continued through the generations.

Many Jewish Tarnopol families did move to Vienna, but
it will take a lot of research to establish links.
There are no HAZELKORN/HASELKORN listed on the
Austrian cemetery or the Austrian holocaust databases.

Yet if you look on Yad Vashem you tragically find 166
FUCHS >from Tarnopol, 27 Hazelkorn >from Galicia - and
most of these are >from Tarnopol and 24 victims with
the maiden name FUCHs >from Tarnopol.

I know where I would concentrate my research.

Schmalzhofgasse 3, Vienna 6 - burnt down on the

civil marriage at the British Consulate.

Re-Introduction #austria-czech

E. Randol Schoenberg
 

I have not posted much lately, so I'll accept Sharla's invitation to
re-introduce myself. I was a founding member of the SIG and one of the
original moderators and contributors to the SIG website, where I authored
the "Beginners Guide to Austrian-Jewish Genealogy"
(http://www.jewishgen.org/austriaczech/ausguide.htm ) and co-authored with
Julius Mueller "Getting Started with Czech-Jewish Genealogy"
(http://www.jewishgen.org/austriaczech/czechguide.html) as well as numerous
GemeindeView (see http://www.jewishgen.org/bohmor/gemeinde.htm ) entries on
my various ancestral towns (Ckyne, Kolodeje, Breclav, Hodonin, Korycany,
Ostroh, and Unicov). Indeed, I started the GemeindeView project and
compiled the original list of German-Czech place names. I also compiled
the Austria-Czech Bibliography (http://www.jewishgen.org/bohmor/books.html)

Although I'm relatively young (b. 1966) I have been an avid genealogist
since I was 8 years old (thanks to a third grade teacher who had read Alex
Hailey's "Roots"). By the age of 10 I had produced a 12-foot family tree
with over 500 members on it.

Because my parents have the same background, I have an unusual (for my
generation) concentration of interests in the Austria-Czech SIG areas.
All four of my grandparents were >from Vienna. Of my sixteen gg-grandparents
I have two >from Vienna (HOFFMANN and FUNK), two >from Prague (NACHOD,
JONTOF-HUTTTER), one >from Budapest (INQUART -- not Jewish), three from
Bohemia (REICHMANN, FEITLER, BLOCH), five >from Moravia (KOLISCH, REIF,
ZEISL, JELLINEK, KATSCHER), two >from Slovakia (SCHWARZ, LOWY) and one from
Hungary (SCHOENBERG).

Through my own research, and with the help of archivists and other members
of this SIG I have traced back several of my lines to the 17th century.
Over the years I have compiled a large tree on my computer (Reunion 7 for
Mac) which now has 6,208 entries (including my wife's family). Most of it
has been submitted to FTJP (http://www.jewishgen.org/gedcom/) and is also
viewable on the Internet from
http://www.schoenberglaw.com/randols/private/family/WC_TOC.HTM.

As Celia suggested, you can find numerous postings >from earlier years by
searching my name in the SIG archive database at
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~sigspop.

As Sharla began her re-introduction with some speculation about the source
of names, and Alex Woodle recently discussed the meanderings of his family
from Bohemia, I thought I would use this opportunity to contribute some
speculation of my own and solicit the opinions of our members:

My SCHOENBERG ancestors came >from Szecseny, Nogrod, Hungary, a small town
located at the top of Hungary on the border with Slovakia directly north of
Budapest. The name SCHOENBERG seems most likely to have been adopted as a
reference to a town of origin, and Schoenberg is a very common town name.
A possible candidate would be Sumperk (Schoenberg), Moravia.
Does anyone out there have any particular knowledge of Sumperk, or have
any opinions on my theory that this branch of Schoenbergs might have come
from that Moravian town? You can see a distribution of the name in
Hungary using the RadaxIndex at
http://www.radixindex.com/databases/pv001001.shtml.

P.S. As for my other research interests, there are many of them, including
the following surnames of my direct ancestors, arranged by location in
Austria-Czech areas:

Member introductions #austria-czech

Jeikrem@...
 

Good idea about the re-introductions.

I live in Salem, Oregon, and I began my research and joined this group when
it was just new. I only came to realize my Jewish heritage as an adult, so I
was very eager to learn as much as I could.

My great-grandmother, Regina BLOCH, was born in Neumark, Bohemia (Vseruby,
Czech Republic) in 1867. Her parents were William BLOCH (b. 1842) and Rosalie
POLLAK (POLLACK, b. 1827). The family (which included brothers Edward and
Albert) came to the United States in 1883 aboard the ship "Lessing" and
settled in Cleveland, Ohio. I have been able to trace the BLOCH family back >from
William to Moses BLOCH (married Theresia STEINER) to Dawid BLOCH (married
Ribeka WACHTEL). The BLOCHs lived in Janowitz, Bohemia (Dawid was born there
around 1780) Apparently the BLOCHs were a large family, and I have not been
able to trace all the connections to other BLOCHs >from Janowitz and the
surrounding area.

Rosalie POLLAK's parents were Josef(or Jacob?) POLLAK (>from Klein-Dhischka,
Tabor region) and Sarah HERSCHMANN (or HERMANN) >from Netwozitz, Bohemia.
Rosalie had a child before her marriage to William Bloch - first known possibly
as Ludmilla Pollak, later, in Cleveland, known as Lizzie LEDERER.

Regina BLOCH married Adolph SCHWARTZ ( >from Hungary) in 1896 in Cleveland,
Ohio, where they remained the rest of their lives.

If anyone knows of any connections, I would really appreciate hearing about
them.

Thanks so much, everyone, for all the sharing and education that takes place
on this list!

Where to write for Naturalization Record? #general

ilyaz <ilyaz@...>
 

I've looked in the Infofiles and in some other sources, but could not find
the answer to my question: where to write for a naturalization record of the
Superior Court of New York County?
I found the index card of the record I'm looking for, I know the exact date
in 1887, I know the bundle and the record number. All I need to find now is
a mailing address of the modern court in New York City that holds this
record.
Does anyone know this? Please reply privately.
Thanks for your suggestions.

Good family tree site #general

Boaz Lasky <boazlas@...>
 

I recently came across an unusually well presented site which includes
an extended family tree of over 22,000 individuals, shown in two
different versions. The main roots of this tree are in Poland but the
tree stretches out all over the world and I noticed many South African
and Israeli branches.The site is bilingual, in English and in Hebrew.
It has an interesting section on Rejoweic in Poland. Family documents
and photographs are shown and there is a Yizkor section showing pages
of testimony >from Yad Vashem.

ilyaz <ilyaz@...>
 

I've looked in the Infofiles and in some other sources, but could not find
the answer to my question: where to write for a naturalization record of the
Superior Court of New York County?
I found the index card of the record I'm looking for, I know the exact date
in 1887, I know the bundle and the record number. All I need to find now is
a mailing address of the modern court in New York City that holds this
record.
Does anyone know this? Please reply privately.
Thanks for your suggestions.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Good family tree site #general

Boaz Lasky <boazlas@...>
 

I recently came across an unusually well presented site which includes
an extended family tree of over 22,000 individuals, shown in two
different versions. The main roots of this tree are in Poland but the
tree stretches out all over the world and I noticed many South African
and Israeli branches.The site is bilingual, in English and in Hebrew.
It has an interesting section on Rejoweic in Poland. Family documents
and photographs are shown and there is a Yizkor section showing pages
of testimony >from Yad Vashem.
The URL is: http://www.krotman.co.il
The English site menu is at http://www.krotman.co.il/index-eng.htm

1930 Poland and Danzig Business Directory #galicia

The 1930 Poland and Danzig Business Directory, "Ksiega Adresowa Polski (wraz
z w. m. Gdanskiem) dla handlu, rzemiosl i rolnictwa," is now freely
available online at the Digital Library of Wielkopolska's site
http://www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=11649. This 2697-page
directory is primarily organized by place, then by business type, then by
surname or business name. To facilitate searching, I have applied optical
character recognition (OCR) software to the Digital Library images and
incorporated the result into my Search Engine for Online Historical
Directories at http://www.kalter.org/search.php, as I recently did for the
1926/1927 edition of this directory. When searching, please keep in mind
that OCR is not 100% accurate, so you still might want to manually search
the directory, especially if you are only interested in a few known small
towns. To improve your chances of success, I encourage you to make use of
all three available methods of searching. An explanation of how to access
the scanned directory images at the Digital Library site can be found in the
FAQ on the Search Engine site.

If you find this tool to be helpful, please let me know.

Please realize that an initially high response may slow the Search Engine.
