GerSIG Events at the IAJGS Boston Conference - An Update #germany

Jeanette R Rosenberg OBE
 

Dear GerSIG Members

There are now well over 50 GerSIG members who have told me that they
will be attending the IAJGS Conference in Boston. All of the GerSIG
Directors are looking forward to welcoming you to our GerSIG Events at
the Conference.

The GerSIG Luncheon and Breakfast which are both fee paid items have
now been added to the Boston Conference registration website. The
luncheon costs $42 and the breakfast $36, see
www.iajgs2013.org/meals.cfm

The GerSIG Luncheon takes place on Wednesday 7 August 2013, it will be
kosher and you will get a hot served meal with meat, fish, and
vegetarian options. The GerSIG invited Guest Speaker at our Luncheon
will be Dr Joachim Hahn. He will be speaking about Thirty Years of
Restoration of Synagogue Buildings in Southern Germany. On behalf of
the GerSIG Directors, I would like to encourage you to attend this
event if you will be attending the IAJGS Conference in Boston.

The GerSIG Breakfast takes place on Thursday 8 August 2013. At the
breakfast you will have the opportunity to ask the experts present
(Dr Joachm Hahn, Roger Lustig and me) any questions you might have about
genealogical research issues and brick walls that you may have with
your German-Jewish genealogical research. We very much hope that you
will attend this event if you have any research questions that we can
help you with.

To book your place at the GerSIG Luncheon or breakfast, you need to go
to the conference website www.iajgs2013.org, and read the information
in the green box. Next, run your mouse over the REGISTRATION tab,
click on "UPDATE YOUR REGISTRATION INFO", and log in. For this you
need to enter your login ID (your email address) and the password that
was sent to you in your "ATTENDEE REGISTRATION CONFIRMATION" message.
All of your previously entered information will already be filled in,
so you can just jump to the bottom of each page and click the
"CONTINUE" button until you get to the page for the Optional Fee-Based
Items. Then make your selections. When you select any paid for meal,
additional questions will appear at the end of the page allowing you
to choose the kind of meal you prefer.

If you do not want to order any of the optional fee-based items or to
make any other changes to your registration information or if you are
not attending the conference, then no action is required.

Looking forward to seeing you at the conference in August.

Yizkor Book Project, May 2013 #subcarpathia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I'm quite sure that you won't be disappointed by the level of activity in
the Yizkor Book Project during May and the lists of new and updated projects
below bear witness to what has been accomplished over the month.

I would like to note a couple of particular additions amongst the many that
took place this month:

- the introductory section >from Pinkas Latvia which provides a very detailed
background regarding the history of Latvian Jews
- ">from the Inferno Back to Life" a memoir in Hebrew and English, relating
to Szczuczyn, Poland
- ">from Zero to Eighty Years Old" a memoir in Spanish, relating to Ratno,
Ukraine
- the completion of the lengthy memorial section >from the Bendery (Tighina,
Moldova) Yizkor book
- the Tarnow Translations Fund and we welcome any donation you can make to
this important enterprise at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

I'd also like to note the following Yizkor book projects that have been
published recently, and now join the ever growing list of books that have
been printed within our Yizkor Books in Print Project:

- The Maple Tree Behind The Barbed Wire (A Story of Survival >from the
Czestochowa Ghetto)
- Memorial (Yizkor) Book of the Jewish Community of Novogrudok, Poland
- Memorial (Yizkor) Book of the Jewish Community of Ostrow Mazowiecka,
Poland
- Memorial (Yizkor) Book of the destroyed Jewish Community of Podhajce,
Ukraine
- Yampol Memorial Book

Note that if you are interested in seeing what books have been printed
please go to our Yizkor Books in Print page
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html and remember that we objectively
aren't able to print books that haven't been fully translated. By-the-way,
books have been fully translated are indicated with an asterisk on our
Translation Index page http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html If
the book you are interested has yet to be fully translated, I would suggest
that it might be a good idea to become involved in seeing that it does get
translated and I'm here, if you would like to know how.

Finally, on the 2nd of June, the JewishGen Board will be kindly awarding me
"Volunteer of the Year" at the JewishGen Spring Brunch in NY. Since I am
unable to attend, Gloria Berkenstat Freund has graciously agreed to accept
the award in my name. I'd like to thank all the people that have sent me
their good wishes and wanted to let you know that I am accepting the award
in the name of the many volunteers who I've worked with over the years
because I am far >from being alone in the endeavors that are carried out in
the Yizkor Book Project.

MUNK family of Nitra (UNCLASSIFIED) #hungary

seth.morgulas@...
 

UNCLASSIFIED

I am researching my 3x great grandmother Theresia MUNK who was born c. 1817 in Hungary. I do not know for certain if she was born in Nitra but I suspect so.

Theresia married Josef SPITZER b. 1810 Nitra (?) they had at least four children Herman b. ? ; Ignac b. Mar 1846 d. 31 Dec 1915 NYC, NY in Nitra; Emanuel b. 10 oct 1855 in Budapest d. 1 Aug 1928 Brooklyn, NY and Rosa b. 14 Aug 1857 Budapest d. 26 Apr 1914.

Ignac SPITZER married Jeanette HILVERT b. Feb 1854 Nitra d. 27 Feb 1933 Bronx, NY they had 10 children. Hermine was born 18 Aug 1875 in Nitra d. 23 Feb 1938 in NYC, NY Morris, Frederick, Julius, Hugo, Regina, Ernestine and Joseph were all born in Vienna and Henry and Samuel were born in New Jersey and New York respectively.

Hermine SPITZER married Max SCHMETTERLING b. 17 Mar 1871 in Khorostkiv, Ukraine d. 6 Jun 1932 they had three children all born in NYC: Milton SCHMETTERLING; Estelle SCHMETTERLING LOEWUS and Rosalinde SCHMETTERLING SPIES.

I have looked at the ancestry of Bernat MUNKACSI and Theresia MUNK does not appear to be a child of Elchannan Chone MUNK but I have not been able to determine who Elchannan's siblings were. I suspect that Theresia must be a child of one Elchannan's siblings. No siblings of Elchannan are listed in any of the trees that I have found so far. Does anyone have any information on any other branches of the MUNK family in Nitra >from the first quarter of the 1800s or earlier?

Hungary SIG #Hungary MUNK family of Nitra (UNCLASSIFIED) #hungary

UNCLASSIFIED

I am researching my 3x great grandmother Theresia MUNK who was born c. 1817 in Hungary. I do not know for certain if she was born in Nitra but I suspect so.

Theresia married Josef SPITZER b. 1810 Nitra (?) they had at least four children Herman b. ? ; Ignac b. Mar 1846 d. 31 Dec 1915 NYC, NY in Nitra; Emanuel b. 10 oct 1855 in Budapest d. 1 Aug 1928 Brooklyn, NY and Rosa b. 14 Aug 1857 Budapest d. 26 Apr 1914.

Ignac SPITZER married Jeanette HILVERT b. Feb 1854 Nitra d. 27 Feb 1933 Bronx, NY they had 10 children. Hermine was born 18 Aug 1875 in Nitra d. 23 Feb 1938 in NYC, NY Morris, Frederick, Julius, Hugo, Regina, Ernestine and Joseph were all born in Vienna and Henry and Samuel were born in New Jersey and New York respectively.

Hermine SPITZER married Max SCHMETTERLING b. 17 Mar 1871 in Khorostkiv, Ukraine d. 6 Jun 1932 they had three children all born in NYC: Milton SCHMETTERLING; Estelle SCHMETTERLING LOEWUS and Rosalinde SCHMETTERLING SPIES.

I have looked at the ancestry of Bernat MUNKACSI and Theresia MUNK does not appear to be a child of Elchannan Chone MUNK but I have not been able to determine who Elchannan's siblings were. I suspect that Theresia must be a child of one Elchannan's siblings. No siblings of Elchannan are listed in any of the trees that I have found so far. Does anyone have any information on any other branches of the MUNK family in Nitra >from the first quarter of the 1800s or earlier?

Shalom,

I'm quite sure that you won't be disappointed by the level of activity in
the Yizkor Book Project during May and the lists of new and updated projects
below bear witness to what has been accomplished over the month.

I would like to note a couple of particular additions amongst the many that
took place this month:

- the introductory section >from Pinkas Latvia which provides a very detailed
background regarding the history of Latvian Jews
- ">from the Inferno Back to Life" a memoir in Hebrew and English, relating
to Szczuczyn, Poland
- ">from Zero to Eighty Years Old" a memoir in Spanish, relating to Ratno,
Ukraine
- the completion of the lengthy memorial section >from the Bendery (Tighina,
Moldova) Yizkor book
- the Tarnow Translations Fund and we welcome any donation you can make to
this important enterprise at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

I'd also like to note the following Yizkor book projects that have been
published recently, and now join the ever growing list of books that have
been printed within our Yizkor Books in Print Project:

- The Maple Tree Behind The Barbed Wire (A Story of Survival >from the
Czestochowa Ghetto)
- Memorial (Yizkor) Book of the Jewish Community of Novogrudok, Poland
- Memorial (Yizkor) Book of the Jewish Community of Ostrow Mazowiecka,
Poland
- Memorial (Yizkor) Book of the destroyed Jewish Community of Podhajce,
Ukraine
- Yampol Memorial Book

Note that if you are interested in seeing what books have been printed
please go to our Yizkor Books in Print page
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html and remember that we objectively
aren't able to print books that haven't been fully translated. By-the-way,
books have been fully translated are indicated with an asterisk on our
Translation Index page http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html If
the book you are interested has yet to be fully translated, I would suggest
that it might be a good idea to become involved in seeing that it does get
translated and I'm here, if you would like to know how.

Finally, on the 2nd of June, the JewishGen Board will be kindly awarding me
"Volunteer of the Year" at the JewishGen Spring Brunch in NY. Since I am
unable to attend, Gloria Berkenstat Freund has graciously agreed to accept
the award in my name. I'd like to thank all the people that have sent me
their good wishes and wanted to let you know that I am accepting the award
in the name of the many volunteers who I've worked with over the years
because I am far >from being alone in the endeavors that are carried out in
the Yizkor Book Project.

Corrections to Rivka Schirman posting #galicia

Alexander Sharon
 

There appear to be few typos and historically incorrect facts listed
in Rivka Shirman's posting last Friday, originally titled:
“East Galicia vs West Galicia (formerly Geszoff - Rzeszow - Zhesuf)”

(...)

<<By 1797, New Galicia (West-Galicia), was sub-divided into 12
districts/counties: Biala Podlaska, Chelm, Jozefow, Kielce, Noskie,
Krakow , Lublin, Lukowsk (Radzyn Podaslki), Linsk (Wiazowna),
Sandomierz, Siedlce. In 1803, West Galicia was reorganized into 6
larger administrative regions: Kielce, Krakow, Lublin, Radom,
Siedlce and Biala Podlaska.>>

Correction:

Reorganization into 12 districts (Kreis or Stadt-Viertel) actually
took place in July 1796, not in 1797.
“Noskie” should read: Konskie
“Radzyn Podaslki” should read: Radzyn Podlaski
“Linsk” should read: Minsk

In addition: Missing 12th district located in Radom, and in 1798,
Sandomierz district was relocated to Opatow.

(...)

<<It is important to note that in 1939-1941 the Nazi Occupational
policy and anti-Jewish policy in this particular region was totally
different than that taking place in the rest of the
General-Government (including Krakow), hermetic ghettoization
and total isolation of the Jewish population did not take place
there, for example.>>

This is an historically incorrect statement:

In Krakow Jews were isolated in the Krakow Ghetto (the town’s
Podgorze suburb); this was one of the five major ghettoes in
the General Government territory. Other four ghettoes in the
Krakow district were located in Przemysl, Rzeszow, Tarnow and
Bochnia.

In Eastern Galicia 11 major ghettoes were located in these towns:
Lwow (Zniesienie), Tarnopol, Stanislawow, Zloczow, Rawa Ruska,
Brzezany, Czortkow, Stryj, Drohobycz, Sambor and Boryslaw. In
addition, ghettoes were also established in smaller towns: Bobrka,
Jaryczow, Rudki, Jaworow, Lubaczow, Busko, Sokal, Bukaczowce,
Podhajce, Rohatyn, Skalat, Trembowla, Zborow, Zbaraz, Buczacz,
Kopyczynce and Tluste.

(...)

<<At the same time, the districts and Provinces under Soviet
Occupation were annexed to the West Ukrainian Republic in
November 2, 1939.>>

Another historical incorrectness:

There was no West Ukrainian Republic in 1939 - a temporary
quasi-governmental body was known as People's Assemblies of
the Western Ukraine (and similar Assembly in Western Belarus).

Polish territories of occupied by Soviets in 1939 lands were
incorporated within Soviet Ukrainian and Belarus Republics.

BTW, the West Ukrainian People’s that existed in late 1918 and
early 1919 in eastern Galicia was destroyed by Poland.
