LitvakSIG - Batch 7 of the Vilnius Household Registers #lithuania

Russ Maurer
 

LitvakSIG is pleased to announce that batch 7 of the Vilnius household
registers is now available to qualified donors.

The registers were created between 1919 and 1940 when Wilno (Vilnius)
city and Wilno voivodeship were part of Poland. The registers contain
detailed information about everyone who lived in Wilno at that time,
as well as information about many visitors. This includes refugees
fleeing the Nazis toward Vilnius in autumn of 1939. The registers will
potentially hold discoveries for anyone whose family was in that
general area, which today includes parts of Lithuania, Belarus, and
northeast Poland. I urge you to check the free batch previews
described below, even if you don't think your family was ever in
Vilnius. There have already been unexpected discoveries. There are
countless mentions of locations outside the immediate Vilnius area.

As this is a very large project that will go on for years, we are
releasing data in batches of about 5000 lines. Batch 7, 5033 lines,
includes three large apartment buildings located at Niemiecka 29 and
Wielka Stefanska 19 and 23. You can find these streets on our Vilnius
interactive street map (https://www.litvaksig.org/vilnius-map/). To
help you determine if this batch or a previous batch is relevant to
your research, you can review a file containing previews of all seven
batches to date (http://tinyurl.com/VHR-previews). The batch preview
is a bare-bones version of the batch spreadsheet containing just the
full name and year of birth (or age) of each person. The previews are
presented both in original order and alphabetically by surname. The
previews also include instructions to qualify to receive the full
batch data.

More information about the Vilnius household registers can be found on
the VHR home page,
www.litvaksig.org/research/special-projects/vilnius-household-registers

Any inquiries related to VHR should be directed to me at
vhrproject@litvaksig.org.

Origin of BARB Family name - Jacob Berab? #rabbinic

Simon Barb <simon_barb2001@...>
 

I have been researching my family name for over ten years and would
appreciate some input >from Rav SIG Members.

Briefly, my family name BARB appears in the metrical records for Mostyka
- now in Ukraine (on the border with Poland) but previously in Galicia -
going back to at least 1750. Specifically:

Loemel (1761-1833), son of Ester and Salman Barb nee Holischitz

I have found no members of other BARB families this far back in the
records, other than my own. In fact, I have found no records of people
of Jewish ancestry with the name BARB but who do not belong to my family
tree until the mid 1800's.

Obviously there are other BARB families, notably Christian families
originating in (West) Germany. Many of the descendants of these families
now thriving in the USA. I have also found no evidence of any kind
pointing to the name being a contraction of other longer surnames which
include BARB.

Family oral tradition suggests that our name is in some way connected
with Jacob BERAB, the Talmudist scholar and rabbi.

I understand that BERAB was not a family name, but an honorific title
given to certain eminent scholars.

Can any member of the SIG provide more information on the BERAB title.

As circumstantial evidence of the family's connection with rabbinical
learning, Loemel's grandson, Izak BARB is included in Meorei Galicia:
Encyclopedia of Galician Sages by rabbi Meir Wunder.

Additionally, my great-grandfather Moriz (Moses) BARB married Henriette
Schrenzel, daughter of D H Schrenzel, the Lviv printer of Hebrew texts.
D H Schrenzel was himself a descendent of Judith Rosanes, the well
documented Zolkiev printer.

There are other "hypotheses" about the origins of the family name BARB,
but these fail to explain the rarity of the name.

Re: grave on Mt. Of Olives

Mount of Olives has a website which allows search for a grave.
It will return information transcribed from the tombstone and sometimes a photo.
It has an English and Hebrew versions.
