re : 1787 patent on Jewish given names #austria-czech

library@...
 

Dear Michael,

You hit the point. Moravian Jewry was much reluctant to adopt both
surnames and given names by force of the decree issued in 1787.
Something must have happened around year 1828; since then the surnames
were used by Moravia Jews on regular basis.

ad H : Havakuk, Henoch and Hebron were only allowed.
ad L : Laser, Lazar, Levi and Lukas were only allowed.

THE 12th INTERNATIONAL HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAYS IN PODKARPACKIE PROVINCE #austria-czech

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

January 27, 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of
Auschwitz. Between now and February 22, but mainly between January 27
and 31, a series of commemorative events is planned in 35 towns in
southeastern Poland, under the auspices of the Marshal of Podkarpackie
[Subcarpathian] voivodeship, Wladyslaw Ortyl.

The complete list of towns and villages is: Baranow Sandomierski,
Blazowa, Czudec, Debica, Dukla, Dynow, Glogow Malopolski, Gniewczyna
Lancucka, Grodzisko Dolne, Jankowice, Jaroslaw, Jasionka, Jaslo,
Jodlowa, Kraczkowa, Krosno, Lezajsk, Lubaczow, Markowa, Mielec,
Niebylec, Pruchnik, Przemysl, Przeworsk, Rudnik nad Sanem, Rymanow,
Rzeszow, Sanok, Stalowa Wola, Tarnobrzeg, Tyczyn, Tryncza, Ustrzyki
Dolne, Zagorz, and Zarszyn-Nowosielce. There will be talks, including
by Holocaust survivors, musical performances, exhibitions, church
services, and various other commemorative events.

The driving force behind this program, as in earlier years, is the
Department of Jewish History and Culture at the University of Rzeszow,
under Prof. Waclaw Wierzbieniec. Many other institutions, though, are
also involved in the sponsorship and organization of events, including
municipal councils, cultural centers, schools, teacher training
colleges, historical societies, organizations for the preservation of
Jewish heritage, museums, and local community groups.

For further information, please contact:
ur.dzienholokaustu2020@... at Rzeszow University, or else:
anna.dziama@.... English-speakers can also call for information
at: +48 609504192, or +48 661582989.

Should we add a another rule for moderators, not to accept posts
without a name and a location? I think that everyone should identify
themselves in this way, because this makes for more considered posts
and helps others to give more appropriate.responses.. .

Maiming to Avoid the Russian Draft?

Jeff Marx
 

Dan Leeson’s thoughtful JewishGen Info File, “Military Conscription in Russia in the 19th Century” (find by clicking on “Get Started” button at top of JewishGen homepage, then click “InfoFiles,” and then click “Military”), raises the question as to whether the maiming of Jewish males (i.e. cutting off a finger or crushing toes) to avoid the Russian draft in the last decades of the 19th century, actually occurred or was a Jewish myth, like the myth about name changes at Ellis Island. I have such a story in my own family. My grandfather wrote in his autobiography: “My uncle [b.c.1847 from Kupel, Russia] avoided the draft by chopping off his right thumb. As a child, while sitting on his lap [c.1896], I noticed the missing thumb.  It was years later that I heard the story from him.”  I’d like to hear from any of you if you have a story in your family about such maiming occurring.

I find it amusing that your one typo -- I didn't go looking, but it just jumped out at me -- is genealogy-related.  You suggest that a composer check the "spelling, punctuation, and the gramma ...".   Shouldn't Gramma be capitalized?  And why leave out Grandpa?

Now if people will only follow your valuable suggestions.

Thank you, Joel! There should be one or more skilled moderators for this list and all others that JewishGen sponsors. However, those who send messages need to pay attention to what they’re doing. An informative subject line is essential, surnames (and nothing else) need to be in upper case, and, if one is responding to a previous message, the original message should be copied and pasted as a quotation.

I agree Glenda  but in actuality it is the not ready for prime time system that should still be in beta that doesn’t do that for us. It is pure frustration.

Re: Passenger arrival records

bernerfolk
 

Found the US manifest (below).  When immigrants arrived in Canada for transit to the US they went through the standard process conducted by US immigration agents as they would have if they'd arrived at Ellis Island.  They were issued admittance passes which they then had to present on the train to their US destination. 

Note that the two  families listed above Chawe; Sara Schlissel & ch, and Ester Wiesenfeld & ch, are all from Tarnobrzeg and all going to their husbands at the same address, 340 Hastings.  Pretty good bet these are relatives.
