Newbie question - reconciling death records #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

The information in the ALD is >from the original death record in the
Lithuanian Historical Archive (LVIA) and is correct. The information on the
headstone was furnished by the living family members and their information
will not always be accurate. They are depending on family stories in
most cases.

You will have to ask JewishGen about the burial registry question.

I am beginning to research my SUVALSKI family >from Kalvarija

The information I have >from my family about my great-great grandmother is
that her name was Sarah, she married Yaakov Yeckel Suvalsky (d. 1914), and
she died in 1926.

In the Burial Registry I found this headstone.

But when I searched the LitvakSIG All Lithuania Database, I found this
record with a different date of death.

Any clues on which to trust?

Also, is there a way to identify in which cemetery the headstone was
found?>

JewishGen Education will offer a new online forum - The Jewish in
Jewish Genealogy
May 1 - May 29

Genealogy is more than statistics and facts. This class will give
you a chance to understand the Jewish immigration experience and
we'll discover tricks and tips to successfully search for Jewish
ancestry.

With each passing generation, the torch passes to children whose
lifestyle is further >from the immigrant experience. Now we have to
dig deep in order to bring up images and voices >from the past, to
understand and recreate their lives.

This class will cover Jewish institutions in the old country and
in the U.S. It will help a researcher discover patterns and
prejudices that affected the way life was lived in the new country.
Jewish life cycles, customs and culture, origin of family names and
naming practices, assimilation and acculturation, migrations
patterns and surname mapping will be part of this study.

For this class a student will work on one immigrant family and the
town (or city) where they first settled -- New York, Chicago, St.
Louis or points west. The course includes general research tasks
and assignments to give insight into the Jewish search.

Class is taught in a *forum* setting, private to this class. The
site is open at all times for students to post. The instructor
answers posts daily. Cost is $120 for 4 weeks. The full class
description is at

Looking for descendants of Rabbi Mordechai ZACKHEIM 19th Cent. Pinsk &/or Karlin #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I am searching for descendants of Rabbi Mordechai ZACKHEIM who may
have been born in Ruzhenai (which I am not sure which) and served
during his latter years as a Rabbi in Pinsk (or Karlin). He passed
away around the middle of the 19th century.

He may have had a descendant who was the chief Rabbi of Cholon or
Bat-Yam in Israel many years ago.

I have a hand written document which mentions that he was a relative
of our and would like to confirm this fact and learn more about it.
Yes, I know about George ZACKHEIM's "The Scattered Seeds" and hope
someone on these list are among the long line of R' Mordechai's
descendants.

TIA and Shabbat Shalom >from Jerusalem.

Vital Records from 1925 to 1927 Vilnius / Wilno #rabbinic

Peggy Freedman <peggyf@...>
 

The Vilnius District Research Group of LitvakSIG has translated another
batch of records for Vilnius / Wilno during the interwar period. This
data set contains marriage, divorce and death records for the years 1925
to 1927, including over 1500 marriage and divorce records and almost
2200 death records.

These records are rich in Rabbinic names, I'm not sure if it is because
many Rabbinic lines included lots of children or if many of these names
are common. Some in particular that I noticed are:

Izrael-Iser KACENELENBOGEN
Nochim KACENELENBOGEN
Samuel ROMM
Rebecca ROM

I have posted surname lists for all these records with a count of the
number of times a surname appears on the public part of our Shutterfly
website at:
https://vilnius.shutterfly.com/
The file is an excel spreadsheet called "Extracted Surnames Vilnius
City." These spreadsheets include surnames >from many of the lists we
have translated, not just these new records.

All the translations, including all the details of given names, mother's
maiden names, patronymics and more, are available now to qualified
donors of the Vilnius DRG. You can become a qualified donor by making a
US$100 contribution to the Vilnius DRG on LitvakSIG's secure website at:
http://litvaksig.org/contribute
This data will be freely searchable and available in the JewishGen
Lithuania Database at the same time it is made available in the
LitvakSIG All Lithuanian Database -- approximately 18 months >from
LitvakSIG's receipt of the translations.

Your donation will help us translate additional records. We currently
have over 40,000 records in the pipeline to be translated, we have
translators eager for the work, but we need your financial support in
order to make the records available in English indexes.

Let me know if you can help!

JGS of Maryland April 26 program #general

Susan Steeble
 

Speaker: Ava Cohn
Title: "Clued-In: Case Studies >from Sherlock Cohn, The Photo Genealogist"
Date and Time: Sunday, April 26, 2015, at 1:30 p.m.
Location: Pikesville Library's meeting room

In this fun and informative talk, Sherlock Cohn, the Jewish genealogy
sleuth, will explore how and why it is important to find the clues our
ancestors left us in their photographic portraits. The program leads
off with a definition of photo genealogy and explodes common myths
about dating Jewish photos. Participants will learn what clues an
expert looks for, how to organize your approach to dating and
interpreting photos, and how to match photo information with vital
records.

Sherlock will present two of her challenging cases to show how
accurate dating, photo identification, knowledge of fashion, and
matching records can shed light on our relatives' lives and the social
context in which their photos were taken.

There will be time at the end for members to have Ava analyze family
photos -- only one photo per person, please!

Ava Cohn brings a lifelong experience with heirloom photos and a
multidisciplinary approach to photo dating and interpretation. A
native of upstate New York, currently residing in the Chicago area,
she has a degree >from Brandeis University with coursework in
decorative arts, art history, and costume history at the Victoria and
Albert Museum, London. Recognizing the need for accurate dating of
Jewish family photographs, combined with specialized knowledge of
immigrant and Eastern European culture and traditions, she devotes her
work, almost exclusively, to Jewish family photographs. Cohn is a
speaker and writer whose articles have appeared in many Jewish
genealogy publications.

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

Cadastral Map for Lachowce (today Pidhiria) near Bohorodczany 1848 on the Gesher Galicia Map Room #austria-czech

Pamela Weisberger
 

Gesher Galicia has just added a new map to the Gesher Galicia
Cadastral Map Room:

Lachowce Cadastral Map 1848:

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadas.../lachowce-pidhiria-1848/

An incomplete, full-color paneled cadastral map of the village of
Lachowce (now Pidhiria), surveyed and printed in 1848. Heavily
annotated by a succession of Austrian and later Polish administrators,
the sheets of this copy were quartered and hard-backed for travel or a
field update. Buildings and land parcels are each numbered, and many
parcels also have landowner names written in. Although worn and with
missing panels, the map shows mixed-use lands bordering Hleb=F3wka and
concentrated Ruthenian residential/farming lands at center and
bordering Bohorodczany; the Greek Catholic church of St. Nicholas is
located among those fields. Also at the northeast are huge linked
properties belonging to Rudolph Stadion, brother of the Galician
governor Franz Stadion, who freed Galician peasants >from serfdom just
before this map was made.

Lachowce was a village (in German Gemeinde) and Bohorodczany was a
town (in German Ort)

Lachowce was a village (in German Gemeinde) and Bohorodczany was a
town (in German Ort.) In the pre-Austrian times, Lachowce was a
farming village that belonged to the magnate families of Potockis and
Kossakowskis. In 1787, the ownership of Lachowce and the neighboring
town of Bohorodczany transitioned to the Austrian land administration
in a huge land swap. To learn more about the history of Bohorodczany,
the surrounding villages, and the neighboring Stanislawow, I can
recommend Gesher Galicia board member, Andrew Zalewski's book,
"Galician Trails: The Forgotten Story of One Family."
