Rabbi Meir SCHIFF of Fulda--the MaHaRaM #rabbinic

Jim Bennett
 

I strongly suspect that I am a descendant of the MaHaRaM SCHIFF,
but I'm missing the proofs. What I know is that Moses
GOLDSCHMIDT-KRAMER HaLevi of Stadthagen, [b.~1620 - d. 1670 in
Stadthagen], who is my proven ancestor, was married to Gutele/
Gutchen daughter of "Rabbi Meir" of Fulda. There was only one
Rabbi Meir in Fulda in this era, the MaHaRaM , so there is a
strong likelihood the Gutele [sometimes Judith] is his daughter.

But none of the sources states this. They do mention his sons.

Does anyone know about this subject?

Translating from Yiddish - "Significant" family letter from Louis ZAUSMER, London, to brother Julius, Johannesburg #latvia

Joyaa Antares
 

Dear Fellow JG Enthusiasts,

I am thrilled to have received a family treasure - a letter written in 1930
by my great-uncle Louis to his brother, Julius ZAUSMER.

It's a reasonably lengthy letter, so should contain "gold" in terms of -
* family news
* possibly a few historical and geo-political references
* possibly family lore

It is in Yiddish and I'd love a full translation.
Apparently the writing is quite easy to read, but I'll let an expert be the
final judge of this.

The first 60+% of the letter can be seen on these five viewmate links

Once these are translated I will post the final three links.

SHEMARYA/SHEMARIA #sephardic

Al SHEMARYA <albertorsandy@...>
 

It's been a long time since I last reached out for help
with my family tree.....My father was Jacob (Yacov) SHEMARYA
son of Yehoshua (Joshua) , born in Rhodes. In the past week,
I somehow found a record of the grave of Rabbi Yacov Shemaria
in Salonica, who passes away 15 Av 5389 (Aug 4, 1629). My
grandfather, Yehoshua, son of Yacov, passed away in 1919. I'm
not exactly sure what to make of this as there are two Yacov's
in the Rhodes cemetary that could be my great grandfather...one
passed away in 5660, the other in 5675. Incidentally, I have
no way, for sure, of knowing who were the male siblings of my
grandfather, Yehoshua. I'd be interested hearing >from other
members of the Shemaria/Shemarya families to exchange information.

Slobodka; Reverse immigration #lithuania

water wind & stars <shiralunacy@...>
 

from Judith Potts - The family came >from Janova and a smaller suburb called
Slabutka. (sic)

from Betty Stoop Mas - Six towns named Slobodka now in Lithuania, Belarus
and Poland are closer to Jonava but did not have significant Jewish
communities.

I suggest that Judith Potts include Kovno in her research for two reasons:
1) many Jews lived in Kovno's suburb Slobodka, home of the famed Slobodka
Yeshiva; and 2) Kovno and Yanova were linked by a railway line, as
mentioned in this article -- www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Lita/lit0089.html
-- on the expulsion of the Jews >from Lithuania in 1915: "In accordance with
the decree of the Commander-in-Chief of the Army, all Jews living west of
the Kovno/Yanova [Kaunas/Janova] railway line must be expelled..."

from Judith Singer - [...] the proportion of Jewish immigrants who
returned to Russia was "almost zero" - and now I have realized, with
your help, that that might have been true, but the key word here is
"Russia."

I think that the time period is also a key factor in estimating the
proportion of immigrant Jews who returned to Russia. I remember >from
my reading of immigrant accounts that cases of individuals (as opposed
to entire families) returning home were not all that rare--except during
the years when World War I made such travel impossible. Perhaps it was
at that time that the proportion of returns was actually "almost zero."
Just a guess. It really is an interesting question, and it's complicated
by the fact that some who returned to Russia later left again to go back
to America. You have to wonder too about the sources of such statistics.

insesse #galicia

Ervin Spinner <espinner@...>
 

In the JRI birth records they list the parent's name, the occupation
and town but frequently they just list the parent's name, "insesse"
or "insesser" which in German seems to mean inhabitant of the
town. Is there any other meaning? I am specifically looking at
Kudrynce in Galicia. I notice this for some marriage records as well.

34th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, Salt Lake City, July 27-August 1 #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi the Bessarabers...

I am delighted to let you know that we have a great program at the Jewish
Gen conference this summer and that there are many presentations and events
related to our Bessarabia region. Please remember that Early registration
at the conference will end in 10 days, on 5/31!

Here are Bessarabian/Moldovan related events:

Sunday, July 27 SHARE Fair. Bessarabia Sig will participate. You
will see new terrific historical maps, ask questions, meet other fellow
Bessarabians.

Monday, July 28 Jewish Life in Bessarabia as it is Reflected in Bessarabian
Newspapers, 1850-1930
Alla Chastina, Kishinev, Republic of Moldova
Published in Russian, Romanian and Yiddish, the newspapers present all too
often overlooked by genealogist's source of information of all the aspects
of Jewish everyday life throughout the region. Virtually every page has data
related to Bessarabian Jews. Bessarabian Provincial Gazette of 1884
published a list of Chisinau Jews subjected to conscription... Chisinau
Voice in 1916 wrote about Jewish touring troupe ran by N. Spivakovsky
performing in the famous Gorishteyn theater... Bessarabian Word wrote about
singer Anna Gelber, actor Misha Fishzon, lecturer Davidzon performing in
Ismail. About Joint allocating $13,000 to the needs of Jewish hospitals in
Bessarabia... With Jewish merchants and pharmacists, rabbis and jewelers,
cultural and financial institutions, charitable foundations and hospitals -
the newspapers are "time capsules" containing vast information of the once
thriving and now all but extinct Jewish life in the historic Bessarabia.

Tuesday, July 29 Bessarabian SIG Board Meeting.
Everybody is welcome to attend, bring ideas,
suggestions, become involved in projects, start new projects.

Bessarabia SIG Meeting
The meeting is open to anyone with roots or interest in the region
historically known as Bessarabia, an area now comprising the Moldova
Republic and parts of Ukraine. At the end of the 19th century and before the
War, Bessarabia had significant Jewish presence. The Bessarabia SIG was
organized at the end of 2011 to help people in their Bessarabian
genealogical research. This meeting will focus on our FUTURE plans, new
projects, getting new records.

Wednesday, July 30 Jewish Cemeteries in Bessarabia and Moldova:
History, Current state, Indexing, Photographing
Yefim Kogan
Recently I found that the most urgent research in Jewish Genealogy in
Bessarabia is investigating, indexing and photographing grave inscriptions
at the CEMETERIES! The reason is not only that the cemeteries deteriorating,
but a grave in an existing cemetery, if not paid for, can be removed, and
another placed instead! There are about 60-70 Jewish cemeteries currently in
Bessarabia/Moldova. Detailed information on most of them will be presented
from old maps, Russian/Moldovan websites, photos and more. Registry and some
photographs >from 15 of them are part of JOWBR now. There are also a number
of already disappeared cemeteries >from which we may know their location from
an old map or even find piece of broken gravestone. What Jewish communities
in Bessarabia/Moldova are doing for Jewish Cemeteries? You will hear what
Bessarabia SIG is working on and planning for new future to preserve the
names of Jewish people buried in Bessarabia/Moldova.

Ask the Experts: A Panel on the Geography, History,
and Culture of Bessarabia / Moldova
Yefim Kogan - moderator
There are many complex questions of geography and history a genealogist,
whether a beginner or an expert, may encounter in the search for family
records. In this panel you will get help >from a knowledgeable group of
experts who have lived, traveled, and conducted research in the
Bessarabia/Moldova region. You will learn what is new at Moldovan Archives;
what Internet sources for genealogical research in Bessarabia exist
throughout the world and how to access them; and much, much more. Moderator:
Yefim Kogan. Panelists: Alla Chastina (Kishinev, Moldova); Alex Denisenko
(Lviv, Ukraine); Ala Gamulka (Canada); Terry Lasky and Yefim Kogan (USA).

Please submit written questions in advance to the moderator
(yefimk@verizon.net). The panel will choose questions that hold the most
interest to the greatest number of researchers. Audience at the session will
be invited to ask questions, too.

$$$ Bessarabian SIG Luncheon with presentation
Bessarabian Jewish Entrepreneurs in 1870 - 1917 by
Alla Chastina, Kishinev, Moldova
National Archives of the Republic of Moldova holds vast collections of
documents related to Jewish entrepreneurs in Bessarabia who owned numerous
factories, shops, pharmacies, mills. They built synagogues, opened circuses,
skating rinks, theaters, banks and many other businesses. First in Chisinau
juice and wine producing company was founded in 1870 by merchant Eleazar
Radelet, his father Yoyna Radelet - owned Chisinau distillery. First in
Bessarabia steam brewery "Bergshloss" owned by M. Kipervasser. Merchant from
Soroca S.Gendler received permission to build a public bath in Ataki in
1891-1892. Ovshy Pagis >from Benderi opens first traveling cinema theater...
Consisting of information on Jewish enterprises as well as the names of
their owners - Jewish entrepreneurs who heavily contributed to the region's
development into one of the major economic and cultural centers, the
collection presents a great interest to historians, professional
genealogists and family researchers alike.

Our Bessarabia SIG is sponsoring together with the conference our guest
historian and genealogist Alla Chastina >from Kishinev, Moldova. She will
give two presentations, and will participate in the Panel Discussion. Her
presents at the conference will help our Bessarabia SIG to get more records
from Archives, to understand better what is available and how to get them.
We need your help to cover some costs. Please donate $25, $50, $100 to the

KLUGER in Myslenice #galicia

Mark Tritsch
 

Hi,

I'm researching the KLUGER family in Munich and have a lead to
Myslenice in Galicia:

Jakob Wolf Kluger, born 30.11.1873 in Mislenice, Galicia, died
16.06.1939 in Munich. His parents were Osias Kluger and Rachel
Kluger nee Scharf. His wife was Berta nee Zinner.

I do have adequate information about the family and their fate in Munich,
but I need to follow the track in Myslenice, where I have a blank so far.
Can anyone offer advice or help? Myslenice is not in JRI-Poland, it was a
small community, only officially existing after the 1870s, so its records
were kept elsewhere. Where?

Kluger descent is reported to be >from Rabbi Shlomo Kluger of Brody
(1783-1869). Osias and Rachel are probably the Yeshaya Kluger and
Rachel Miriam Scharf (granddaughter of Rabbi Moshe Yaakov Scharf)
found in a publicly available table of descendents of Rabbi Scharf
(1786-1868).

Greetings to all,
