Glückel of Hameln and chacterizing early modern Germany #germany

Michael Rubin
 

Hello friends - one silver lining of our current situation is the many virtual classes taking place online.  I'm bringing to your attention one such offering focusing on the milieu of Glückel of Hameln being offered by a historian of that period, over three Tuesday evenings. Many of us who are lucky enough to find records back to that period are, nevertheless, left imagining what life was really like.  This short course can help.  

Reading Glikl:  Life Stories from a 17th-Century Jewish Working Mother
 
Glikl was one of the first women to write about the Jewish experience and provides a unique glimpse into European Jewish life around 1691. The book, originally written in Yiddish, has a new translation, published recently.   The class will be an intellectual book club of sorts, with participants reading some of the book prior to each meeting. Rachel Greenblatt will help to contextualize the information and further illustrate what else was going on in the world to give the writer that perspective..

Re: Does anyone recognize this town name? #russia

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybruc@...>
 

Like most town names, Rosolovitz brings up a whole list of 'sounds like' names in the Jewishgen Gazeteer. I highly recommend that you look at that.
 
But I also need to tell you that a death certificate is not a wonderful source of information on an immigrants birth. If the kids were born in the US, they might not remember right. And the informant might be a grandchild or the neighbor.
 
But we work from what we have. I once spent 2 years looking for somebody in St. Louis, until I found them in NYC.

Hi Steven.

As mentioned in my email, I am beginning to find Davids in North America, writ large, including Canada. I will find the Manifest for entry into Halifax or some other Canada-Nova Scotia Port. This is dependent on the Ship leaving England.

My best wishes to all of you in Israel!!

Your possible relative, Julien David

I will continue correspondence privately.

Another thing, I forgot to ask – does the census point Rachel mother name and Michael parents' names? I cannot open the file you attached.

Descendants of Frymeta Rochwargier? #poland

ingrid rockberger
 

We know that Frymeta Rochwargier, (?birth 1872 Sobota) daughter of Anszel Leib Rochwargier and Alta Zena Zajonc was married with 8 children. We do not know her married name. Any connection with anyone, descendants?

Searching for descendants of Abraham Rauchwerger #poland #usa

ingrid rockberger
 

Looking for descendants of Abram/Abraham Rochverger/Rauchverger, born approx. 1884, death date unknown, arrived in the US June 8th 1904 on the ship “Kroonland” – point of departure Antwerp, last place of residence London. He had arrived in London from Hamburg July 1st 1902 on the ship Silvia. He was a resident of Lodz and his parents (hopefully) were Anszel Leib Rochverger (born 1845 in Strykow) and Alta Dyna Zajonc (born 1844 in Strykow).

We believe Abraham could be the brother of Mordechai Mendel Rochverger, who settled in England with his family. Family lore has it that a brother came to England with Mordechai (anglicized to Marks Rockberger), then went on to the US – Chicago – and was never heard from again. Could Abraham be the missing brother? Abraham arrived in London in 1902 on the same ship as Mordechai.

Translation Request- Russian Document #latvia #russia

aaran1286@...
 

Dear all,

I am new to this forum- thank you very much for allowing me in. 

I have received a very moving document from YadVashem - the deportation file of my ancestors from Latvia in 1941 by the Soviets.

I can barely make head or tail of it, I think it mentions two people- Ilja Goldberg born 1922 z"l and Moshe Goldberg born 1884 z"l.

The actual file is 24 pages long. I'm attaching one page of it here- if you think you could help some more- that would be amazing and I can send it to you- but no worries if not!



I look forward to receiving some translations.   

 Stay safe,

Yoav.


Re: My great hunt Rachel Levinsky #names #israel

JOSEPH GODELNIK
 

Dear Lynn

I am very grateful to you for the findings. I have no doubt the data fits my great aunt and her family.

Does the Census point the year they came to the United States? Have they lived all the years only at the address listed in the 1930 census? If it is not difficult – I would thank you for every bit of information.

Thank you very much

Joseph

Does anyone recognize this town name? #russia

@JulieZ
 

On my great great grandmother's Michigan death record, her birth town is listed as Rosolovitz, Russia. Google doesn't seem to believe this town has ever existed. Has anyone ever heard of this place, or anything that might phonetically match it?
Thanks, Julie
