Weinberger #austria-czech

tadejstrojnik@...
 

Hello,

My grandmothers surname was Weinberger she was born in Zagorje Slovenia
1898. Her father - my grand-grandfathers name was Paul WEINBERGER and
was also born in Zagorje 1862. I was told that Weinberger is a Jewish
name, so I am very curious to find any jewish connection. So far I was
not successful to find any Jewish link in Slovenia. I was able to trace
my ancestors to Delezna Ruda in Czech Bohemia bordering to -
Eisenstadt in Bavaria where my grand, grand father was born in 1776. His
name was Wenzeslau Weinberger. In Delezna ruda he married Catharina
Schenk born 1781 and they had a son Wenzl Weinberger who was born in
Delezna ruda 1798. Wenzeslau Weinberger was a carpenter and the
family moved to Pohorje in Slovenia around 1800. I wonder if anyone
could give me some useful informations about Weinbergers in Delezna
ruda. Were they Jewish or not.

Thank you for your help,

Kind redards,

New York Genealogy Course - online at JewishGen #austria-czech

Phyllis Kramer
 

There are many interesting research possibilities in the Big Apple and
JewishGen's next online Course will focus on them - beginning June 1.

If, despite basic online research (census >from familysearch &
ancestry, vital records >from italiangen) you have not yet found the
Hebrew names, birth year or town for your U.S. immigrant ancestors
consider this course, as it focuses on the more complex documents our
ancestors generated, including naturalization, military and
governmental records, death records (probate, obituaries, cemeteries),
sometimes via local archival research.

We feature a personal mentoring program; students use our online FORUM
to post an ancestral branch, set goals for research, and work one on
one with the instructor. Eight text lessons can be downloaded to read
at your own pace. This course will be especially useful to those who
live in or plan to visit NY; we'll have suggestions on where to
research, where to wander and how to get there. And we will schedule a
field trip to a New York archive. This course is open for enrollment.
*Please* read the course descriptions and requirements (8-10 hours per
week) on www.jewishgen.org/education and email any questions.
I look forward to interfacing with every student.

birth death marriage registers (was Inventories of Prague Jewish Museum Archives Online) #austria-czech

rfc974@...
 

Tremendous thanks to Bob Lenk for pointing out this list of inventories.

I did a little reading in the inventories and discovered that, when it
compiled the inventories in the 1970s, the museum had copies of the
birth, death and marriage registers for some of the communities.

And I rapidly found one set of registers that apparently are not
on-line at badatelna.eu -- registers for Slabce >from 1867-1894 (listed
as items 72, 73 and 74 in the Rakovnik inventory).

If I am reading the handwritten note correctly, these records are no
longer available at the Jewish Museum.

Does anyone know where they are now?

Thanks!

Craig

Fleeing to Czechoslovakia to avoid the ravages of WWI #galicia

Jeffrey Knisbacher
 

Wondering if anyone else has information about this and/or any
documentary evidence to back it up? >from some collaborative research
that I did with a friend in Israel years ago, I learned >from Yad va Shem
documents the he discovered that just prior to or during WWI, some of
the KNISBACHERs moved >from Galicia to Teplitz-Turn, Czechoslovakia.
(Some births occurred there during that time frame.) At the time I had
contacted an archivist in Czechoslovakia. She found no record of any
KNISBACHER, but did confirm that Jews had moved to Czechoslovakia at
that time to get away >from the war. Presumably most moved back after
the war's end.

Help with BURDEINIC family search #ukraine

Rachelle Litt
 

Dear Genners, you have been so helpful with my ZNAIDE family search so
far ( the matzo factory in Brazil) that I thought you might be able to
help with another search. My ggm Bejla KATSMAZOVSKIJ nee KOGAN,
daughter of Zelman KOGAN, >from Soroki received several letters from
her niece and nephew. I had these letters professionally translated
from yiddish to English. The translator was reading handwriting and
came up with similar but differing spellings of the names. The first
letter is dated May 2nd 1940 >from her nephew Notyeh and niece Khaveh
BURDELIZK (possibly BURDEINIC) with an address of BURDEINIC Motea
Street Reg Carol N 34 Romania. The second letter is dated June, 10,
1940 and is >from her niece Khaikeh BORDENIC (possibly BURDEINIC or
BURDIMIC) with an address of Moti BURDIMIC Street Regele Carol 34,
Soroca Bessarabia, Romania. I am looking for any information I can
get on this family that I knew nothing about. Did they survive the
Holocaust? How were they related as niece and nephew to my ggm and ggf
Bejla Kogan and Shama(i) KATSMAZOVSKIJ? Thank you for all of your
help,

Sources for Jewish History in Porto, Portugal #general

Jim Bennett
 

After having learned that I am a descendant of "Rabbi Jechiel HaLevi of Porto"
born about 1455, I tried finding publications about the Jews of Porto before the
expulsion. {This is my first venture into Iberian Sephardic Jewish genealogy, and
so far I have found nothing.]

So I now turn to you thousands of Jewishgeners to help me find genealogies,
lists, archival sources, books, etc about the Jews of Porto, pre 1500.

Please write to me and send me links to the sources, especially documents and
lists of members of the Porto community. Rabbi Jechiel/Yechiel must have been
their Rabbi at the time.

Thanks, Jim Bennett, Haifa

Re: Missing Great Aunt Esther TAUFIELD -more questions and information #general

Marilyn Robinson
 

A couple of weeks ago I posted about my great aunt, Esther Levine TAUFIELD who
seems to have disappeared >from the records after 1925-1926. She was found buried in
Mt. Hebron Cemetery (died in 1938), but buried under the name Levine, with the
headstone labeled Taufield. I thought that she had been buried under her maiden
name, which was Levine, but she evidently remarried Kalman Levine, who was buried a
few graves away >from hers in 1945. His name appeared on her death certificate.
I haven't been able to find her marriage record to Kalman. If she had a religious
ceremony only, would there still have been a recording of the marriage?
Also, why would Esther have been buried with a headstone labelled with her first
husband's name, TAUFIELD, if she remarried??
Finally, I can find no further record about Esther, other than the fact that her
last residence at time of death in June, 1938 was 1443 Boston Rd., Bronx, NY
Does anyone have any other ideas??
