Samuel OPPENHEIMER-HEIDELBERG (died Vienna 1703) #germany

David Dubin <davidmdubin@...>
 

Hi all,
Please help me clear up a discrepancy.
Most online trees have the mother of the 'shtadlan' Samuel
OPPENHEIMER's children as Sandela (Gentille) de CARCASSONE (died 1705
in Vienna). However, Michael Berolzheimer's papers in the Leo Baeck
Institute (chapter 7 pp 84-87; pp 644-647 in the .pdf file, 683-686
for the English translation) states clearly several times that Sandela
was Samuel's second wife who only bore Samuel one daughter. He claims
that Samuel's first wife (name unknown, died 11 Mar 1673) was the
mother of his other children.
I cannot find Berolzheimer's footnotes anywhere in the file, so I
don't know the source. Does anyone have this information? Thank you.

1764-1766 Jewish censuses for certain towns in Poland, Galicia, Podolia, Volhynia #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I recently photographed 1764-1766 censuses of Jews in towns owned by
August Aleksander Czartoryski while at AGAD in Warsaw. The censuses
have not yet been indexed and I am not able to respond to lookup
requests. I will try to distribute the images to people who can
organize indexing, provided we receive the necessary permission, and a
full announcement should follow when indexing is complete. Thanks
very much to the archivists at AGAD for their generous assistance.

The following towns are included (some with nearby villages):

Kingdom of Poland: Baranow (Lublin), Konskowola (Lublin) + Wlostowice,
Miedzyrzec Podlaski (Siedlce), Staszow (Radom).

Galicia: Berezhany/Brzezany, Jaroslaw + villages, Kalush/Kalusz,
Narayev/Narajow, Peremyshlyany/Przemyslany, Sieniawa + villages, Skole
+ villages, Tarnoruda.

Podolia: Hraniv/Granow + villages, Letychiv/Latyczow,
Medzhybizh/Miedzyboz + villages, Nikolayev/Mikolajow, Sataniv/Satanow,
Stara Sinyava/Stara Sieniawa + villages.

Volhynia: Klevan/Klewan

These censuses are not mere statistical summaries, but generally list
names of members of households and identify their relationships.
Approximately 10,000-20,000 names are listed. There are often house
numbers and occupations. Ages are given only for Letychiv/Latyczow.

Note that in Medzhybizh/Miedzyboz, several names include "Balszemow"
or similar, but I have not examined these closely.

The bound volume of these censuses is part of the Lancut Potocki
family collection at AGAD, see
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/168
August Aleksander Czartoryski's daughter Elzbieta/Izabela Czartoryska
Lubomirska was owner of Lancut and maternal grandmother of Alfred
Wojciech Potocki. I examined and photographed numerous other items >from
the Lancut Potocki collection, pertaining to Lancut itself, and will
write about them separately.

Lancut documents recently acquired #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

This is a brief summary of Lancut documents that 1) I examined and,
unless otherwise noted, photographed in July/August at AGAD in Warsaw
and at the Wawel (I) and ul. Grodzka (II) branches of the National
Archives in Krakow, and 2) were acquired as part of a Gesher Galicia
project begun in 2016 >from TsDIAL in Lviv and the Lancut Public
Library. In the process of examining the first group, I also learned
of many other Lancut documents having or likely to have Jewish
genealogical content, but I did not have time to work with them and
will try to do so in the future. Indexing status is described at the
end and in the absence of indexes I am not able to respond to lookup
requests. Full details about these documents will be announced when
indexing is complete. Thanks very much to the archivists for their
assistance.

1) Acquired July/August as private initiative

AGAD POTOCKI LANCUT ARCHIVE

1785 tax list (https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/15-02)

1794 tax list (https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/15-10)

1804-1805 tax list (https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/15-21)

1765 contract for purchase of home by Jasef Danielowicz and his wife
Szayndl daughter of Wulff Lewkowicz (>from other sources: Jasef
Danielowicz a.k.a. Jasef Lubaczower had sons who adopted surnames
KALTER, SON/SONNE, and STERN in Lancut and a son-in-law with surname
BIER); several contracts 1794-1855 mentioning Jews, not examined
carefully (https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/170)

1805 list of Jewish tavern owners(?); 1782-1822 documents related to
sale of alcohol, some mentioning Jews, not examined carefully
(https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/698)

c. 1800 contracts mentioning Jews, not examined carefully
(https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/353)

1853-1913 contracts mentioning Jews, not examined carefully; due to
time constraints, I was only able to look at pages 1-155 of about 580
(https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/354)

1862-1904 real estate documents mentioning Jews
(https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/943)

1793 document with Hebrew signature in collection with castle
inventory, not examined carefully
(https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/132)

Property ledger mentioning 1901 contract involving Leizor WANG
(https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/933-1)

In addition, I was not able to view the following items because of
their poor condition, but will explore how to get scans:
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/932,
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/917,
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/699. The first two were,
unfortunately, my highest priority and might contain information about
property ownership in the mid-19th century with, hopefully,
indications of relationships between then-current and former owners
(as is the case for similarly-described documents >from another town).
The third concerns sales of alcohol.

The following items I examined but did not photograph because they did
not mention any Jews: https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/28,
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/31,
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/133,
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/174,
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/189,
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/1/350/0/-/929

Note that the above represents only a small part of the Potocki Lancut
Archive and I plan to explore the many remaining files that seem
promising. Also, microfilm copies of the Potocki Lancut Archive are
kept at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, but are apparently
organized differently and I have not been able to reconcile the BYU
and AGAD inventories.

WAWEL BRANCH OF THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES IN KRAKOW, Teki Schneidra syg. 1034

1870 voter list

1787 list of Jewish tavern owners with narrative details about their
businesses, includes surnames (possibly a few toponymics), house
numbers, and some indications of death (undated?)

1794-1809 lists of city expenses, some with names of Jews

1795 debts, two involving Berko BAUMBERG

1803-1804 documents related to Jewish brewers/tavern owners

1819 document concerning tax payments?

1785 document concerning Jewish community and synagogue, with several
names (a copy, unfortunately, without the original signatures)

1786 contract with Michel Leyzorowicz concerning trade fair

1800-1845 documents mentioning Jews, not examined carefully

UL. GRODZKA BRANCH OF THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES IN KRAKOW

The files https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/29/318/0/2.3/331 and
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/29/318/0/2.3/332 contain thousands of
cards with information about individuals >from Lancut, supposedly
spanning 1895-1942, organized alphabetically. Due to time
constraints, I was only able to photograph the cards for surnames
beginning with A, B, K, part of H, and part of J. I estimate that
photographing the remaining Lancut cards (front and back) would take
about 10 hours. Each card covers one person with varying information
that generally consists of the person's name, year of birth, place of
birth, address, occupation, references to other documents, and a list
of taxes by year. The cards appear to be related to business
licensing/registration or some kind of census of professional
activities. There are similar cards for many other towns (see list at
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/29/318/0/2.3/str/1/200#tabJednostki).

2) Acquired through 2016 Gesher Galicia project

TSDIAL, LVIV

1788 Josephine cadastral survey, list of property owners (V/52)

1820 Franciscan cadastral survey, list of property owners (V/73)

undated 1788-1816 tax list; more precise dating might be possible by
comparison with some of the newly acquired items in 1) above (V/73)

LANCUT PUBLIC LIBRARY

1801-1822 narrative documents >from the Lancut Magistrate's Office
concerning real estate transactions, wills, contracts, etc., very rich
in genealogical information (sometimes, spanning surname adoption and
describing relationships between people who adopted different
surnames) (345/III)

1820s-1880s register of real estate transactions, sometimes
identifying relatives and property ownership history back to the
mid-18th century (346/III)

c. 1777 property/tax list, often identifying previous owner, too (349/III)

1938 Jewish businesses in Lancut (271/IV)

1941? Jewish residents of Lancut under Nazi occupation, can include
name, address, date of birth, date of arrival in Lancut (many
1939/1940), date of death, occupation (271/IV)

1900-1926 minutes of the Lancut Shoemakers and Saddlers Association
(maybe also including tailors and textile makers), with many Jewish
names (383/IV)

Documents concerning Marjem HELLMAN z SCHIFF (271/IV)

Property documents (incomplete) corresponding with a Lancut map dated
in some reproductions 1749, but possibly actually >from 1759 (357/III)

Small fragment (without Jews) of an 1869 census, the whereabouts are
unknown (349/III)

Note that many of the above documents include house numbers that can
be correlated, even despite a change in the house numbering scheme,
and doing so can sometimes provide proof of genealogical relationships
that no single document can provide.

INDEXING

For the documents I recently photographed as a private initiative (1),
I will index them myself or possibly solicit volunteers and then will
be happy to donate the indexes to Gesher Galicia and JRI-Poland,
pending permission >from the archives. For the narrative documents, it
will be important for researchers to have access to the photos, since
I will not provide complete transcriptions or even summaries of the
genealogical contents, but only the list of names mentioned. I do not
yet know how I will distribute the photos.

For the documents included in the Gesher Galicia project begun in 2016
(2), indexing of some documents is complete and the rest will
hopefully be finished before the end of 2018. Indexes will be given
to both Gesher Galicia and JRI-Poland and the photos were already
given to Gesher Galicia, though I am not certain how they will
ultimately be made available. For narrative documents, especially the
1801-1822 documents >from the library (345/III), researchers will want
to see the photos for the reason stated above. Donors to the project,
which was fully funded, have received extracts about their surnames as
indexing has proceeded. This project was originally approved by the
late Pamela Weisberger, who was supportive of casting a wider net in
search of sources for Lancut, >from which few vital records survive.
Thanks also to Peter Jassem for his assistance.

Finally, I would also like to mention that I visited Lancut and will
share information that might be helpful to others planning a visit in
a subsequent message.

Galician business registration? cards for many towns, 1876-1943 #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

At the ul. Grodzka branch (II) of the National Archives in Krakow, in
a collection of the Krakow Chamber of Commerce, there are cards with
information about (tens of? hundreds of?) thousands of individuals
from many Galician towns, apparently related to business
licensing/registration or some kind of census of professional
activities, with dates 1876-1943 varying by town. I only examined
(and photographed) cards >from Lancut, which are organized
alphabetically and generally contain each person's name, year of
birth, place of birth, address, occupation, references to other
documents, and a list of taxes by year. You can see some of the towns
that are covered in the inventory at
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/29/318/0/2.3/str/1/200#tabJednostki, but
note that descriptions sometimes refer to an alphabetical range of
towns in a powiat without specifying each town.

DNA and Rabbinical Descent #rabbinic

David Goldman
 

Greetings, everyone. It turns out that my DNA results indicate that I am not
a direct descendant >from Rabbi Yaakov ben Yehuda Weil but >from another line
via one of his grandfather's or great-grandfather's brothers instead.
Now it is said that he was a descendant of both Nachmanides and Rabbi Meir
of Rothenburg. Since it is unknown if I would share that descent via
marriage of his grandfather, great-grandfather etc. as opposed to descent
from a brother of theirs, the only way would be to compare DNA results with
those who claim descent >from Nachmanides and/or Maharam Rothenburg in the
same manner the Weil connection is done in the WIRTH group.
Does anyone know whether such DNA testing has been ever done for descent
from Nachmanides and/or Maharam Rothenburg?
Thanks and Shana Tova to all,

JGS of Maryland September 23, 2018, program #general

Susan Steeble
 

Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland

Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland
Speaker: Dr. Jude C. Richter
Title: "Documenting Holocaust Survivors and Victims at the United
States Holocaust Memorial Museum"
Date and Time: Sunday, September 23, 2018, 1:30 p.m.
Location: Pikesville Library's meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Rd,
Pikesville, MD

Please join us on Sunday, September 23, 2018, at the Pikesville
Library's meeting room, to hear Dr. Jude C. Richter present
"Documenting Holocaust Survivors and Victims at the United States
Holocaust Memorial Museum."

Records in the collections of the United States Holocaust Memorial
Museum (USHMM) help us to document the experiences of individual
survivors and victims of the Holocaust. They usually include dates and
places of birth and, less often, the names of parents and spouses;
they are of obvious interest to genealogists. The International
Tracing Service (ITS) collection is richer for persons persecuted in
Western Europe than for those who were persecuted in Eastern Europe.
It nevertheless remains the single largest collection of records that
allows us to document the fates of individuals during the Holocaust.
This talk will demonstrate how the ITS collection and other
collections at USHMM can be of value to genealogists and especially
those researching ancestors >from Ukraine and Galicia.

Jude C. Richter received his Ph.D. in Russian history >from Indiana
University. >from 2002 through 2006, he worked for the Conference on
Jewish Material Claims against Germany, conducting research in the
collections of the USHMM to document Holocaust survivors=E2=80=99 claims.
Since 2006, he has worked for USHMM. He is currently a Research and
Reference Specialist in the Museum's Survivors and Victims Resource
Center.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first
meeting. Refreshments will be available. Please check our web site at
www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the time, location, and program
of future meetings.

Looking for Landsman records ? #lithuania

Salinger Ralph
 

In the late 1800 until about the 1970, immigrants >from the various
shtetlach ran benevolent societies and associations to provide aid and
social programming for their landsman. These were mostly in NYC but there
were likely similar organizations in places like Baltimore.

Most or all of these have shut down as the original immigrants died and
their kids didn't have any interest in keeping them going.

But what happened to all of their records?

Did someone acquire them or did they simply end up in a landfill?
I have no idea.

Can anyone make some suggestions where to look ?

Many thanks

Ralph
