Gymnasium in Lwow located at 17 Zygmuntoska St. (today ul Gogola) on

If you can identify any of the people in the photograph, or have more
information about this school and/or the time-frame of the photo that
would be historically or genealogically helpful, please reply on the
list, or to me privately if you prefer.

What we know:

At this location there was an elementary school (grades 1-6,) a high
school (grades 7-10) and a Liceum (grades 11-12.)

The first all-male school was opened in 1918 with director, Salomon
Igel, >from the well-known family of Jewish bookstore owners. Igel was
born in Zloczow in 1889 and was a psychologist and prominent educator
active in the Leopolis Society B'nai Brith. In 1928, this school
became the cause for major demonstrations in Lwow, after the antics of
the youngsters who threw plaster debris and bread peels onto the
participants in the Corpus Christi procession.

Another private all-male gymnasium of the Jewish Association for
Public and Middle Schools in the humanistic style was also founded at
17 Zygmuntowska Street, >from the parallel classes of the classical
high school. The directors were Michal Brandsatter, Dr. M.
Bienenstock, Henry Lilien, and Dr. Salomon Igel.

The publication "Dzieje najnowsze" published in Lodz in 2007, reported
that the "Endeks" (members of the Polish ND-National Democratic Party)
destroyed two synagogues, the office of the Jewish daily paper
"Chwila", office of the Yiddish publishing company "Der Morgen", and
this Jewish high school at 17 Zygmuntowska Street at some point during
WWII.

This photograph was donated to Gesher Galicia by Nahum Sagi in Israel.
His father, Israel Shrager, attended the school.

Research assistance on identifying the photograph and history of the
school was provided by Julian Bussgang.

Can't find image of death of Sara Redlich, in Rawa Ruska, in the year 1895. #poland

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - Using JRI-Poland.org, I found the death record for a Sara Redlich
in Rawa Ruska in the year 1895, Akt 90. I believe the parents surname
was mistranscribed, as it says "Bikner", but I suspect it's "Rittner".

I clicked on the link to see the image. However, the link brings me to
a page of Rawa Ruska deaths, but the year is 1892. So I browsed the book
up to the last page, and while it does have deaths for the year 1895, I
cannot find Sara Redlich, and the book ends with deaths in the middle
of 1895. So either the book wasn't fully scanned, or I'm overlooking
the page with her name. Can anyone find it for me? Thanks.

Breakthrough on ZALKA #general

Joan
 

Hi,

It's been a while since I've posted, but I believe I made a huge
breakthrough on my great-great-grandfather and his family.

I found what I believe is Henry, Sophie, Mary, Sara and Nathan on
a list of Radziwie PSA Books of Residence which I believe is a
census record. I know them with the last name of ZALKA, on the
list they are DZIALKA, Enoch, Szyfra, Mariem, Sura and Nuchem,
from the towns of Poick and Wloclawek. Birthdates are the same
and Enoch's father's name is Nuchem and mother is Maria ILOWER.
On what I believe is his death notice >from New York his father
is listed as Nathan and mother as Mary JULOVIR.

I am so excited! It's been years since I broke a brick wall.
I now need some help in what I do with this info????? It also
lists Enoch's occupation as handlarz and Szyfra's as Przy mezu (if
someone can translate for me, thanks in advance.

"Endogamy..." author Israel Pickholtz to speak on Long Island - Sunday, Aug. 30 #galicia

Renee Steinig
 

As you may have read on other lists, longtime Gesher Galicia member
Israel Pickholtz has been on a "U.S. tour" to discuss his groundbreaking
new book, "ENDOGAMY: One Family, One People" -- a guide to Jewish
genetic genealogy. After speaking engagements in Maryland, New Jersey,
West Virginia, Illinois, California, and Arizona, Israel is now New York
bound.

You are cordially invited to attend Israel's special Long Island appearance,
hosted by the Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island:

"Jewish Genetic Genealogy - A Family Study"
Sunday, August 30, 2:00 p.m.
Mid-Island Y-JCC (www.miyjcc.org/AboutUs/Location-Directions.cfm)
45 Manetto Hill Road, Plainview

Admission is free and all are welcome.

Because of many generations of endogamy -- marriage "within the tribe"
-- Jews are related to one another, multiple times. As a result, Jews who
test their autosomal DNA find more matches than those who are not
associated with endogamous groups. Using examples >from his own
research, Israel will discuss how, despite this complication, genetic
genealogy helped clarify many relationships in his extended Pickholtz
family.

A Pittsburgh native, Israel made aliyah in 1973. He is a veteran
genealogist whose flagship work is the Pikholz Project (www.pikholz.org),
an effort to identify and reconnect all Pikholz descendants. Israel's
involvement with genetic genealogy began in 2012, when he attended
the inaugural "Practical Genetic Genealogy" course at the Genealogical
Research Institute of Pittsburgh. A member of the International Society
of Genetic Genealogy, the Guild of One-Name Studies, the Israel
Genealogical Society, and the Association of Professional Genealogists,
Israel blogs weekly at allmyforeparents.blogspot.com.

Copies of the book (www.endogamy-one-family.com) will be available at
the meeting for purchase and signing.

Kulikow (Zolkiew Kreis, Galicia) 1854 Cadastral Map online! #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

A most interesting 1854 map for Kulikow (Kulykiv, Kulikov) in the
"Zolkiewer Kreis" (Zolkiew Circle) had been uploaded to the Gesher
Galicia Cadastral Map Room:

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/kulikow-kulykiv-1854/

The map shows a well-developed town center with market square, a
minor square with a possible synagogue, three churches and two large
Catholic cemeteries, a Jewish cemetery, a large reservoir, and some
unusually long and narrow farm parcels. Buildings and land parcels are
each clearly numbered; redline revisions to building and parcel outlines
indicate changes in town after the 1854 survey.

If you have researched or visited this town and know, for certain, the
location of the former Jewish synagogue, please let me know privately
and we will add that information to the map description.

they evolved over time, check out the timeline created by Alex Feller

Re: BREUERs of Lucenec, Slovakia #hungary

edelman@...
 

Hi Alyson,

May I assume you checked passenger manifests in one way or another?

Also you checked all the possible name variations for BREUER etc and
perhaps even did the slow trawl through all the Lucenec names in the YV
database? (Even with name variations set to very flexible there, I have
still had to do more manual searches to find certain people.)

Have you looked for people with these surnames in towns relatively close
to Lucenec that remained inside Czechoslovakia after 1938 and Slovakia
after 1939? One big advantage is that these people would be listed in
the 1940 Census in Slovakia, though I think most of that which is at
USHMM website is mirrored at YY, and you mentioned you already looked
there. Anyway, this helps a lot because as you know post-1895 stuff in
Slovakia is mostly not online and has to be accessed via the archives in
person or by email request.

You checked USC Shoah Foundation testimonies which might be listed under
a changed Gentile-sounding name BUT with the original Jewish names only
in the index?

Australian immigration?

*****

I am not familiar with the names you mention. My WEISBERGER great-uncle
and his LICHTENSTEIN wife and their children lived in Lucenec at least
throughout most of the 1930's up until the early 1940's, but they were
from Mala Polana and Giraltovce, respectively. Their children were born
in Presov. All survived.

Dear Fellow Genners:

I have again taken up the search in earnest for family members from
Lucenec and now look to all of you to see if any names ring bells in
your areas of study!

Fulop BREUER and his wife, Marie STOSSEL, had 4 children: ARANHA,
b.1876, OLGA, b.1878, MALVIN b. 1880 and IREN, b. 1883. Ferencz
BREUER (1846-1924) and his first wife, Julia SCHLESINGER (c1850 -
1893) also had children: BIRO (name changed in infancy >from Arnold),
b. 1876; ERNO, b. 1888, Olga (1879 - 1892) and JENO, b. 1888. There
are two more BREUERs: ERNO, b. 1877 and ARPAD, b. 1878, both sons of
Vilmos (Viliam) BREUER b. c1850 and Julia BRAUN b. c1850-1883. A
third son of Vilmos does not appear at all in the LDS filmed pages of
the Lucenec Rabbinical birth records for the late 19C >from which all
this information is taken -- my grandfather-in-law, OTTO BREUER, born
in 1875.

They all seem, with the exception of Otto, to have sunk tantalisingly
without trace and I am wondering how to track any of them down.
Lucenec was a thriving, prosperous Jewish community between the wars
with a splendid Synagogue, so there is no obvious economic reason why
the men should have left, though if the women married and moved away,
tracking them becomes much more difficult. Did any of them come to
the US? No idea, but they might have. Strangely, none of them is
listed in the wartime list of Jews in Lucenec on Yad Vashem, either as
victims or survivors.

I would dearly love to forge a link with any or all of these BREUERs,
so do please give me a heads-up if you can help!

Many thanks!

Slovakia is mostly not online and has to be accessed via the archives in
person or by email request.

You checked USC Shoah Foundation testimonies which might be listed under
a changed Gentile-sounding name BUT with the original Jewish names only
in the index?

Australian immigration?

*****

I am not familiar with the names you mention. My WEISBERGER great-uncle
and his LICHTENSTEIN wife and their children lived in Lucenec at least
throughout most of the 1930's up until the early 1940's, but they were
from Mala Polana and Giraltovce, respectively. Their children were born
in Presov. All survived.

Dear Fellow Genners:

I have again taken up the search in earnest for family members from
Lucenec and now look to all of you to see if any names ring bells in
your areas of study!

Fulop BREUER and his wife, Marie STOSSEL, had 4 children: ARANHA,
b.1876, OLGA, b.1878, MALVIN b. 1880 and IREN, b. 1883. Ferencz
BREUER (1846-1924) and his first wife, Julia SCHLESINGER (c1850 -
1893) also had children: BIRO (name changed in infancy >from Arnold),
b. 1876; ERNO, b. 1888, Olga (1879 - 1892) and JENO, b. 1888. There
are two more BREUERs: ERNO, b. 1877 and ARPAD, b. 1878, both sons of
Vilmos (Viliam) BREUER b. c1850 and Julia BRAUN b. c1850-1883. A
third son of Vilmos does not appear at all in the LDS filmed pages of
the Lucenec Rabbinical birth records for the late 19C >from which all
this information is taken -- my grandfather-in-law, OTTO BREUER, born
in 1875.

They all seem, with the exception of Otto, to have sunk tantalisingly
without trace and I am wondering how to track any of them down.
Lucenec was a thriving, prosperous Jewish community between the wars
with a splendid Synagogue, so there is no obvious economic reason why
the men should have left, though if the women married and moved away,
tracking them becomes much more difficult. Did any of them come to
the US? No idea, but they might have. Strangely, none of them is
listed in the wartime list of Jews in Lucenec on Yad Vashem, either as
victims or survivors.

I would dearly love to forge a link with any or all of these BREUERs,
so do please give me a heads-up if you can help!

Many thanks!

Re: litvaksig digest: August 26, 2015 #lithuania

Researching the origins of my paternal grandfather and his siblings I have
come up against the proverbial brick wall. In 1890 he left Zagare
(Lithuania) and came to Antwerp. The residence permit he received in
Antwerp notes that his travel document was "a military passport issued
Chaula/Russia (Siauliai/Lithuania today) on 31 December 1884". I would
like to examine this in the hope that it contains details of his parents.
Is there a data base on line where it could be found? Grandpa's given name
was David - there is confusion regarding his, his parent' and his siblings'
family name - listed variously as TOWB, ISRAELOVITCH, FRIEDLANDER,
ADRIAVITCH.

Any suggestions for further research would be very welcome.

Thanks in advance - SARA
