Re: Where did the term Galitziana come from?#general

Well,

In Ukrainian Galicia is known as Halychyna - there is the relation between Halych and Halychyna. 
In year 1206 Hungarian king Andrew II, following occupation of The Duchy of Halicia adopted title Rex Galiciae et Lodomeriae. This title was used by other Hungarian kings and Austrian monarchs who inherited Hungarian crown. At the beginning of 14th century the Duchy of Halicia became part of The Kingdom of Poland.


Re: Where did the term Galitziana come from?#general

Halych: the H & G are cognates between Polish and Russian.

I have read that Halych referred to the salt mines in Polish Galicia, But it could also refer, as the Spanish place does, to Celtic Gauls who lived there at some point. 

A quick on-line search will provide more information.

The X by some person's name on the census means that is the person that the census taker talked to and got information from.

Re: Nussdorfs brothers-Hungary or Berlin #germany #hungary

Hi Barbara,
     Should we assume you have checked JewishGen's All Hungary Database?  There are a few NUSZDORF names there, mostly from Galicia, but also a few in Putnok, Hungary.
     Do you have access to MACSE?  There are 3 NUSSDORF listings there.  One for Sara, daughter of Tillie NUSSDORF, who married Chaim ROSENBERG, one for their daughter Sarolta who married Rezso TOLMAR, and one for their daughter Regina (birth record).  Henrik STORCH is mentioned on all of these records.
     Have you considered checking NUS[S]DORFER or NUSZDORFER?  There are about 30 records for these surnames on MACSE, but they all seem to be Roman Catholic.  Still, perhaps the family converted....???
     There are also a few Jewish NUSSDORF records on the GenTeam (Vienna records) site.  Did some family stay in the area?
     Best,

                   Judy Petersen

Geni most certainly has a Sources tab for each profile and one random one I pulled up has links to 1920 and 1930 censuses. There is also a Media tab for each profile, Discussion, Revisions, etc…

The Given Name Sissel #names #germany

Ralph Baer
 

Al Lederer recently posted the link to the long-awaited Baiersdorf, Bavaria cemetery documentation. This cemetery contains the graves of a number of my ancestors and many other family members on at least four branches of my tree from Baiersdorf and Forchheim. One grave is for Sissel AUB, son of Me’ir. He was apparently a brother of my ancestor Abraham Meyer AUB and a half-brother of my ancestor Simon Meyer AUB, both also buried there.
 
This is the link to Sissel AUB’s stone https://www.juedische-geschichte-baiersdorf.de/public/763 . According to the documentation, he died on March 18, 1814. There was a census of the Jewish community of Baiersdorf in 1796. There is no Sissel AUB listed. However there were two men living with Abraham Meyer AUB who were designated as relatives or servants, Männlein (born about 1746) and Eißig (born about 1748).
 
My question is, could either the name Männlein or Eißig (Isaac) correspond to Sissel?

Are there any records from KISHINEV  (or KALARASH) to find out how the immigration to Palestine was handled  during the first Aliya 1882-1906 ?
An organized Aliya was done in MOINESHT ( BACCAU District)   . A society aiming to get Jews to immigrate to Palestine and work in agriculture was formed in Moinesht ( 1875) and brought to the land of Israel the founders of Rosh Pina and Zichron Yaacov,

According to the one of the trees uploaded to Ancestry, the St. Cyr/Indorf family tree, Archibald's father was Max (Mordechai), born 1851 in Russia and died 1932 in Providence.  There is also a note that the original family name was Applebaum.

Seeking any and all information on Max Koenig and Hannah (Morgenstern)Koenig #usa

sacredsisters1977@...
 

Hi All
I am trying to track down information on my Koenig ancestry from Austria. Not sure where in Austria they were from. My ancestor Max Koenig immigrated in 1902. Not sure if he arrived with his whole family or if they came separately. I do know that in 1910 census he is living in New York with his second wife Hannah/Anna Morgenstern and several children. Sometime after 1910 he moved to Bridgeport Connecticut and stayed there at least until 1921-22, then he went back to New York. That's where I lose them. I can't find them on any 1930 census. I believe I may have found them on a 1940 census in the Bronx with his two younger children William and Fannie/Florence. Then again I lose them. I am seeking death dates and possible obits. His children are buried in different parts, Nathan and Samuel are both buried in Connecticut.

WOW- How exciting!! will program be archived, available after for some length of time. eager to attend but may have serious time conflicts that week, and no real block of time to binge watch after. would also like to share w/Jewish culture group of senior, friends..., but wondering about timing vis a vis enough slots for JewishGen org members. (we've had at least 2 programs in last few yrs by local JGS leaders!)   what do you suggest? 1.timing of sharing the info; 2. where, how long talks w/b available after next week. Always a fascinating agenda. long time JGS member, not yet at conference. still early in some aspects of research/little time to pursue.

Dear JewishGen Family,
 
Each year, our friends at the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies organize a world-class conference, bringing together scholars, researchers, volunteers, and well-known Jewish genealogists. For nearly an entire week, there are countless opportunities for participants to network, attend sessions, share information, connect with relatives, research their lineage, and ultimately, learn more about our collective Jewish family history and heritage. 
 
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the conference could not take place in its usual format. But just because we cannot come together in person, does not mean the conference is cancelled! Quite the opposite. The IAJGS team has organized a remarkable 4-day, virtual experience, that will take place next week Monday August 10 - Thursday August 13. It will feature a variety of live and pre-recorded sessions, along with opportunities to engage online with other conference participants.
 
As the home of Jewish genealogy and a major sponsor of this conference, JewishGen.org is proud to participate, and will be offering live and pre-recorded presentations, along with our Research Division meetings. We hope you will join us. All of the live JewishGen programming is offered at no charge, but participants need to register for the conference by visiting: https://bit.ly/30q0zcO. A complete list of live JewishGen presentations/meetings can be downloaded by visiting: https://bit.ly/2DpzNsC 
 
For additional information about the conference (including information about recordings), we encourage you to visit the conference FAQ page: https://bit.ly/3a3paaI

Finally, on behalf of the JewishGen Team, I would like to extend a special note of gratitude to Robinn Magid, Dr. Dan Oren, and everyone who has been involved in the organization of this first-of-its-kind conference. There is no road-map or template for what they have created, and they have worked hard to accommodate as many people and ideas as possible. We greatly appreciate their efforts, and for granting us all an opportunity to benefit from what will surely be a meaningful, informative, and inspirational conference. 

Wishing you all a Shabbat Shalom, and a wonderful weekend.

Re: My Heritage - Theory of Family Relativity (+ Ancestry & 23andMe) #general

Moishe Miller
 

Hello Group,
 
I find the varied responses so interesting. For me, I have found:
  • Ancestry: with my 164,747 matches, ThruLines only gave me results 6 generations back, almost all of them tied to a tree that is not true. This is not Ancestry's fault as the tree was copied by many people and is sadly, pervasive. However, it did link me to a real 3c1r and with that, I brought my Schwimmer tree from Munkacz back 4 generations. It was my best and most definitive DNA success, supported by genealogical sources in both the USA and Europe.
  • 23andMe: with my 1,381 results, pedigree collapse and endogamy, it did a fair job and I found 3 new lines that I am exploring. BTW, for those that feel they do not have enough matches, I have tested my father also, and 23andMe tells me 1,379 of the 1381 matches are paternal.
  • MyHeritage: with my 12,357 matches; it by far gave me the most results. I was able to use those results to find the same cousins in Ancestry, where there was no Thruline. I think the results for me were mainly from Israelis with Galician and Austria-Hungarian ancestry.
Stay safe, stay healthy,
