Re: Vienna birth record: Mathilde LOWE #austria-czech

David & Diana Laufer <dlaufer@...>
 

Firstly let me thank all those who did reply. A short summary of
those responses follows.


Mathilde's Hebrew name:
All responses to this question stated Malka which I accept.
I had not previously recognised the first letter as a mem.

Robert's occupation:
Several stated Buchhalter = accountant. One stated Bu(umlaut)chsen(macher).
= gunmaker.
The latter has some logic as on his death record Robert's occupation
is given as Metallgiessermeister = ironmonger or foundry owner.
Robert was born in Ober Glogau (now Glogowek, Poland) and raised in Gleiwitz,
Pr. Schlesien (now Gliwice, Poland) which is in the coal mining area
near Katowice. He could have learnt the foundry skills there before
moving to Vienna. Making guns would be a possible product for someone
with a metal foundry. According to my little Langenscheidt
dictionary one translation of Bu(umlaut)chse is rifle.

BUCHSBAUM/BUXBAUM from Nowy Sacs #rabbinic

Maly & Ofer Cohen
 

Dear friends,

Shalom. In the last months we had been collecting information,
aiming to compile a large family tree for the BUCHSBAUMS families of
Nowy Sacs and the surrounding areas. We are descendents of Moshe
[Segal, HaLevi] BUCHSBAUM (1824 - c. 1900) who named also Moishe
GOLDES (after his mother Golde). Moshe, probably was the son of
"Nathan the Dayan". We ask for additional information on the
following:

A. Families:

BUCHSBAUMs >from Nowy Sacs (and abroad), that are descendants of
"Nathan the Dayan (Jewish judge)" and Golde (or of Yitzchak the
Dayan, probably Nathan's father).

BUCHSBAUMs >from Nowy Sacs (and abroad), that are descendants of he
following of Nowy Sacs: Aaron-Efrayim (b. before 1809), Yisrael (b.
1801), Yakov, Shimeon (b. 1815), Zelek (b. 1819).

B. Jewish Judges (Dayanim):

"Nathan the Dayan" (Segal, HaLEvi, BUCHSBAUM - or others) of Nowy
Sacz, in the years 1820-1860 (age of the "Divrei Chayim" - the first
ADMOR of Tzanz).

A Jewish judge, named Yitzchak >from Nowy Sacs, in about 1800-1850.

We have a detailed family tree for the descendants of "Moishe GOLDES."
Most of the branches of Moishe GOLDES's children have been located. Our
tree includes data for: Dov-Ber, Yitzchak (Krakow), Yerachmiel, Tuvia,
Abraham, Nathan-Mordechai (Limanova), Schifra. If someone has a family
tradition of being his descendant, **Please Contact Us**.

We will be grateful for any piece of information on this general
subject.

Best wishes and thanks in advance,

Chaya Cohen - Petach Tikva, Israel.
Ofer Cohen - Jerusalem, Israel.

Souces of Information #ukraine

I am looking for sources of information such as birth, death, census,
marriage, military service or general information >from mid-1800's to 1920.

My grandfather Meyer Isaac OXENHORN came to America in 1904. Before coming
to America he worked at the Zusman Faience (earthenware) Factory in Kamenny
Brod.

Other areas of interest include Tartak. Linbersk, Ljuberkaya, Dovbysh and
the general area. The city spellings are often not exact in these datum bases,
that include foreign maps, because of language differences. Usually they are
phonetically close in pronouncing the towns name.

My grandmother family (surname GERMAN) was >from Novohrad-Volynsky (Zvil) and
my grandfather (OXENHORN) was originally >from Osrtog.

I was looking for assistance in uncovering any records (birth, death, tax,
census, marriage, etc.) that may exist to pursue my genealogy search.
