Re: MANDEL's #belarus

Since I replied to the group earlier, I will do so again.  My aunt told me that her MANDEL family is originally from Austria, so not closely linked to the Belarus MANDEL family.  FWIW, her father was Philip MANDEL from Austria and her mother Celia WEINSTEIN from Romania.  They lived for many years in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn and also had a hotel (name unknown) in the Catskills.

Re: MANDEL's #belarus

jbonline1111@...
 

My 100 year old aunt by marriage is a MANDEL.  I was focused on my direct ancestors, so I have no information on hers, though I remember her father from when i was a child. I will call and ask her about her family's roots.  Her mind is as good as ever.  

quoted text: 
I have been researching my MANDEL roots for almost two decades now and can
demonstrate (to my own satisfaction at least!) that:-

1. While there were plenty of Mandel's in German-speaking areas of 19th
century Europe as well as in Hungary and what became Czechoslovakia, there
were relatively few in that part of the Pale of Settlement which became
Belarus, Lithuania and Latvia.

2. Those very few who lived in Belarus (the Minsk Gubernya) were largely
concentrated in the Slutsk and Novogrudok Uezds.

3. These latter almost all stemmed >from a single family, who already
appeared in the1816-19 Revisions as "MANDEL"
(pure and simple - not Mendel, or Mandelbaum, or any other common
permutation).

By the turn of the 19th century, there was quite an extensive cousinhood of
these MANDEL's in the "old country",
but by the end of World War I, half of them (and their descendants) seem to
have disappeared into thin air.

The question is where the heck did they go to? And so my question to y'all
is do you have any Belarussian MANDEL's on your trees?

Anyone who has may hit a jackpot, because I have 200 years of documented
family history to share.

Please reply privately.

Hi,

I've subscribed here for about a year and really only lurk. I have no
skills as a genealogist. I really only know a few things about my
family which I'll put here. I would love some suggestions about how to
verify or correct these (mis?)perceptions about my origins.

1) my maternal grandfather Samuel Muhlbauer came over from the
austro-hungarian empire on a boat to NY around 1910 as a boy of 15
with his father, settling in Brooklyn.
2) my mother always told me that her father was:
2.1) hungarian (though my mother grew up speaking English and yiddish
- knew no Hungarian).
2.2) was a member of the 'kussover' (kossover?) society in brooklyn
2.3) was a member of the masonic temple
3) he married my maternal grandmother Fannie Geller who had been born
in Brooklyn Fannie had a younger brother named Jerry Geller.
4) my maternal grandfather's mother's (my maternal great grandmother)
first name was Molly/Mollie and her maiden name was 'Pearl' or 'Perl'.
5) supposedly, in the old country, the Perls owned an Inn. I don't
know anything about what the Muhlbauer's did.
5) I don't know for sure but I'm guessing that kossover society has
something to do with Kassa/Kosice?
6) I do know that while my mother Arlene Muhlbauer and her sister
Shirley Muhlbauer were growing up in Brooklyn (Williamsburg?) my
grandfather and grandmother (Fannie Muhlbauer née Geller) owned a
fabric store.

So.. I really have no idea(s) where to begin.. Any
advice/recommendations welcome. Happy Purim everyone!

J.

Gayle Schlissel Riley
 

I guess I do not express what I am looking for clearly. Years ago I found my grandfather's papers ..saying He will vote democratic. I would like to find my grandmother registration to vote. Those paper's would be in Cal. of in Mich.
My grandmother was such a force and would have register soon as she got the right to vote. I hate this dyslexia..Thanks Gayle


Happy Purim

Avraham Groll
 

Dear JewishGen Community,

As we celebrate Purim, and the salvation of the Jewish people in the face of overwhelming odds, I wish to thank you for your involvement with JewishGen.

People don’t always realize just how vital our services really are, particularly to those whose families were decimated by the Holocaust, and who feel that their family trees are simply desolate. 

It is because of your support that:

  • JewishGen has provided solace to Holocaust Survivors
  • siblings have been reunited
  • cousins have been discovered
  • thousands of people have reconnected with their Jewish history and heritage.

It is because of your support that so many people have celebrated their own personal Purim stories within the context of Jewish genealogy. Who can define the impact when one discovers that h/she is not alone in this world?

This Purim holiday, I hope you will recognize and appreciate the vital role you play in connecting so many people around the world - it is something we are all truly grateful for.

Wishing you and your family a Happy Purim.
Avraham Groll and the entire JewishGen Team

 I have one old photo with some odd handwritten notes on the back. They are written in different directions and in different inks. Anything you can decipher would be much appreciated!

The other photo has a printed label on the back, which I assume is from the photo studio where the portrait was taken. That one should be much easier to read.

D H AARON was not the first ever Jewish actuary in the history of UK Insurance. What about Marcus Nathan ADLER who was actuary of the Alliance Assurance Company from 1867? Or Benjamin GOMPERTZ who was actuary to the same company when it was founded in 1824? Or Hershell FILIPOWSKI who worked as an actuary in Edinburgh in the 1850s?

Death record from Mandatory Palestine

Alan Shuchat
 

Can anyone suggest how I might find a death record for someone who died in Mandatory Palestine in 1942. A relative of mine was born in the Russian Empire, came to the U.S., and made aliyah in 1923. There is a matseva (gravestone) on the Mount of Olives with his name, Naftali David Shukhat (נפתלי דוד שוחט). The cemetery information on the web says the date of death was Jan. 11, 1942 and names the Hasidim chevra kadisha and the North America section. I don't have any information about his life in Palestine and would be grateful for any assistance.

Thanks,

Re: New article - Deciphering Jewish Gravestones

fredelfruhman
 

WOW!

As someone who has been helping read gravestones on ViewMate, I am blown away by the details and the amount of information that you have included.  I learned one or two new things myself, and plan to save the PDF for future use.  (Had I known about your wonderful work, I could have saved myself some time and frustration with some of the rarer abbreviations, most of which I worked out in the end, but not without some sweat and tears.)

There is one aspect of reading the year of death which might be helpful to include, when you have a chance.  (Perhaps it is there, but I missed it?).  Hebrew years are often -- as least on older stones -- followed by a 3-letter abbreviation, lamed-fay-kuf, which stands for the words "lifrat katan", according to the small details.  You explain very well that the leading '5' is usually omitted (in rare cases represented by a leading "Hey").  The words "lifrat katan" are saying the same thing:  this is the "small count", with the big number missing but understood.  By the way, those three letters are sometimes combined into a one-character glyph;  I'll be glad to send you an image, if you wish.  I hope that you do not mind my mentioning this.  Your work is so complete, and this abbreviation/image threw me when I first encountered it, and I've been asked about it by others.

Thank you again for providing this excellent document.

Hi All

I don’t know whether the following is part of your subject

 

However, seeing the a/m headline I'm reminded that my London born maternal grandmother was a suffragette, one of those who also tied themselves to the rails of the Buckingham Palace fence – protesting for the right of women to vote for the Parliament:
