Question about contacts for Bucharest cemeteries #romania

Ted Gostin
 

I would like to know if anyone has current contact information for the two
Jewish cemeteries on Soseau Giurgiului in Bucharest (Bucuresti). There are
names of caretakers in the IAJGS cemetery database, but that information is
often out of date. I believe that a person I am researching is buried in
one of these two cemeteries, and would like to check for other family
members in the cemetery records. If anyone has the names of the current
people in charge of the cemeteries, it would also be helpful to know if they
speak English.

Thanks.

heritage for sale #hungary

Dear All,

the three items we were discussing about were not for sale at the auctioning yesterday. The police still have the books, people interested in buying them could leave their bids in writing at the auctioning house. Zsuzsa Toronyi >from the Jewish Archives told me that she had requested the National Office of Cultural Heritage to place the books under protection, which would ensure them ending up in one of the public collections. She said she had faith that that was going to happen.

Best regards,

Court Jews in Bavaria - LOEW, SELIGMANN and LILLIENTHAL #germany

peter@...
 

From: Peter John Hinton peter@...

I have been absent >from this discussion group for some time but write
to see whether any members have knowledge of Court Jews in Bavaria,
and specifically those with the names LOEW, SELIGMANN or LILIENTHAL.

I am trying to discover more about a man called LOEW SELIGMANN, who
was born about 1680 in Schnaittach/Huettenbach. Family lore has it
that he was Quartermaster to the Elector of Bavaria and had 9
children, including LOEW SELIGMANN junior who was born in 1735 in
Schnaittach and died in 1805. The latter was married to Edel JAFE,
daughter of Baruch JAFE. She died 1790. Again according to family
lore, they had a son LOEW SELIGMANN LILIENTHAL (LSL) (born 1777 in
Schnaittach and died Oct 2, 1850). LSL married Dina LICHTENSTEIN,
daughter of Jacob and Gietel LICHTENSTEIN, and amongst their children
was Menachem (Max) LILIENTHAL who was to become a prominent Rabbi in
the US (Cincinnati especially).

So there are three fathers and sons, apparently named thus:
LOEW SELIGMANN, snr (about 1680-17??)
LOEW SELIGMANN, jnr (1735-1805)
LOEW SELIGMANN LILIENTHAL (1777-1850)

We have conflicting reports about the first two having been
Quartermaster to the Elector of Bavaria, one of which said that LS,
jnr was Fiscal Agent to the Court of Bavaria and Quartermaster of the
Army.

There is also a report which says that LSL was Court Purveyor of
Furth. I have discovered on the Internet in a book entitled The Court
Jew that during the Seven Years War (1756-63) there was a SELIGMANN
LOEW who, along with Anschel LEVY of Schnaittach, were Court Agents of
the Upper Palatinate and "had the thankless task of provisioning the
underfed, underpaid and poorly equipped soldiers of the German armies
of the Empire."

This raises a question of whether SELIGMANN LOEW and LOEW SELIGMANN
are likely to be the same person?

If so, this would seem to indicate that the court agent mentioned was either
LS snr or jnr. Since jnr would only have been 21 at the start of that war I
incline to the idea that snr's birth-date is probably way out,
especially as it puts him at about 55 when jnr was born, and that he
might have been young enough to be active during that war.

The idea also arises in my mind that Court Jews perhaps kept the job in the
family and that there might have been two or even three generations of
the family in the various courts of Bavaria.

Then there is LSL's name. As the edict about surnames came into effect
in 1813, is it likely that perhaps LSL chose the surname LILIENTHAL ?
In a biography of Max, his father is called SELIGMAN LOB (o umlaut)
LILIENTHAL. =A0If so, does this indicate that Loew/Lob and Seligman(n)
were forenames? And perhaps inter-changeable?

Any comments or pointers to research sources would be gratefully received.

INTRO: Researching SCHLACHTER from Braunsbach, Wurrtemberg #germany

Rena McDonald <renamcdonald424@...>
 

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for
about 5 years, but I recently got serious about it. I consider myself to be
a beginner in doing German Jewish Genealogy research.

I live in Vestavia Hills, Alabama in the USA. My native language is English,
and that is the only language I speak fluently. I'm pretty comfortable using
a computer, but not an expert. I still consider myself a beginner when using
the Internet.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of 3 of my
grandparents, 2 of my great grandparents and 2 of my great great
grandparents, some gg aunts and uncle.

My primary research goals now are to find out: Anything about my Great
Grandfather Garson STEINMAN, particularly, military information, brothers?
sisters? parents?, when and where he died before my Great Grandmother
(her maiden name was Dora SCHLACHTER) and their children came to the US.

All I know about him, is that he was born in 1880 in Dvinsk , Latvia and they
got married in 1900 in Dvinsk;...Where my mother's older sibling, who died
as a baby, is buried (probably somewhere in Daugavpil or Riga)....To locate
any brothers or sisters of my mother's father Gedalie NADEL; and to determine
which military organization and war left him with a scar on his neck from
shrapnel.

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 106361. The family names and ancestral towns
that I have entered in the JGFF (JewishGen Family Finder) are:

UNGER - >from Hesse Darmstadt, Branunsbach, Wurttemburg to Alabama, USA in 1857
SCHLACHTER - >from Braunsbach, Wurttemburg to Alabama, USA in 1857; Nirkwer,
Lithuania and Kupeske, Lithuania to Alabama, USA in 1903; Rokiskis, Lithuania;
Libau, Germany to Alabama, USA in 1922.....South Africa to Miami FL USA
STEINMAN - seeking any information on Garson Steinman who married my Great
Grandmother in Dvinsk Latvia. He died before Dora and their children came
to the U.S. >from Rokiskis, Lithuania in 1922.
STEINMAN - seeking Steinman cousins in Manitoba Canada with COHEN and RUDOLPH
on family tree
NADEL - >from Zolochiv, Ukraine; Daugavpil, Latvia; Riga, Latvia; Germany,
England, to Alabama, USA in 1927.
RUDOLPH - >from near Kiev, Scotland, to New York, Connecticut in 1915.
TEICHER - >from Nemyriv, Podolia, England, New York, Connecticut in 1916
