Hoferice Family #austria-czech

labendz@...
 

Hi all,

A friend contact me asking if I could help him find information about potential Jewish roots of the Hoferice family in Bohemia. He expects that the name may have been altered somewhat over the years. The family in the 20th century was Catholic and noble.

Thanks a lot,
Jacob Labendz


Re: Translation of old German script records #translation #germany

"FamilySearch.org has all sorts of genealogical guides, including old German Script".

Having taught myself to read the old German script, I am still occasionally stymied, so the more help, the better.

Can you provide some guidance as to where to find this guide on Family Search, as I am not having any success.  Do you have a direct link?  Thanks!

Re: Circular (radial) Descendant Family Tree --looking for digital program or website that can create this #general

 

Further clarifications:
FTM by itself does not do Descendant Fan Charts - hence the need for Charting Companion
10 or more generations supported, but it will require some messing with page size and font size
Hebrew is one of the supported languages in Charting Companion
Charting Companion is not free

Thanks

According to Cindy's List website, https://www.dorotree.com/ is the only genealogy software that prints in Hebrew.  (I have no experience with this program myself.)

For fan charts, Family Tree Maker by itself, no. You would need the Charting Companion software add-on from Progeny. I haven't tried Hebrew but it doesn't hurt to ask them.

DWORKIS Surname Project #dna #names #ukraine

robertjaylevy@...
 

The Eastern European surname DWORKIS was unique to a small area of the former Pale of Settlement.  (The variant DWORKIN was more common in other regions of the Pale.)  Several American DWORKIS families today can trace their origins to the Vinnitsya region of present-day Ukraine.  Are these families related?  Do they all share a common male ancestor?

 

A DWORKIS Surname Project has been created on FamilyTreeDNA to research these questions:

 

https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/dworkis-surname-project/activity-feed

 

We explore these relationships by doing a special DNA test (a Y-DNA test) that follows the paternal line and can identify close family members on that line even if the names don't match.

 

All researchers with DWORKIS, DWORKUS or DVORKIS surnames in their ancestry are encouraged to join the project and identify a patrilineal male descendant who still carries the name to test their Y-DNA and become part of the project.  Another wing of Vinnitsya DWORKIS’s immigrated to Pennsylvania and changed the family name to DAVIS – their descendants are encouraged to join the project as well.

 

If readers know of DWORKIS families, please bring this project to their attention.  Inquiries can be made to me privately.

Re: What was Ginsburg & Klausner, S Fallsburg, NY (Catskills) not listed as hotel #usa

avivahpinski@verizon.net
 

A very extensive web site about the Catskills is the following:

https://www.brown.edu/Research/Catskills_Institute/

There is a list of hotels and bungalows for each town.  I did not see the Belveder listed under Fallsburg/So. Fallsburg, but I suggest that you explore the web site for yourself - it is also possible that it was in another nearby town. 

For anyone interested in this topic, they are still collecting photos, information, etc.

Re: Help locate this Gulag-camp or village listed in post-war record #russia #holocaust

Dr. Ruth Leiserowitz
 

I think that the author of the questionnaire did not know how to write the Cyrillic name of the place with Latin letters. He writes once (above) "Banao" and then (below) "Barnao". In my opinion, it is Barnaul in West Siberia.  A lot of civilian internees were concentrated in this region during the Second World War. But they were mostly internees. They were not in penal camps of the Gulag. But it was nevertheless a difficult situation for Jews, as a report by the Jewish telegraphic agency testifies:

GERSZONOWICZ or GIERSZONOWICZ families from the city of PIOTRKOW (Poland) between 1780 and 1880, from the city of Osjakow (Poland) between 1880 and 1905, from Lodz (Poland) after 1905 #poland #russia #lodz

Dominique MERLET
 

Hello,
I am looking for civil status documents or information about the siblings of GIERSZONOWICZ or GERSZONOWICZ Boruch (born around 1832 in Piotrkow), son of GIERSZONOWICZ or GERSZONOWICZ Abram (born around 1797) and Rywka (born around 1807). Then on the siblings of GERSZONOWICZ Jankiel (born in 1889 in Osjakow), son of GERSZONOWICZ Moszek Gerszon (born around 1860 in Piotrkow) and MOSZCOWICZ Drezla (born in 1856 in Zdunska Wola). It seems that Moszek Gerszon had a second wife COLO Sura (born in 1873 in Tuszyn). To be confirmed... They would have had together 4 children all born in Lodz from 1907 to 1914.
Thank you for your help.

"Who or where is the best place to get help with old german script hand written records translated?"

You can put it on ViewMate, use one of the Translation groups, or you can do it yourself. FamilySearch.org has all sorts of genealogical guides, including old German Script. I found one in a Norwegian guide, but it may be easier now when you can search online.

Translation needed for Yiddish part of a 1938 letter to my grandmother. #yiddish #translation

Hello All:
 My first time posting on Viewmate, so I didn't know how it works.  Can someone translate this Yiddish? It is on ViewMate at the following address ... https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM85307   It is at the end of a letter written in 1938 by my grandmother's sister (Malca Rabinovici)who remained behind in Romania shortly after my grandparents immigrated with their family to Canada.  The rest of the letter is written in Romanian and  the addition in Yiddish is from my grandmother's brother-in-law (David Rabinovici).  Thanks much.

Rachel Gal Altbaum
I would be happy to try and help you but I need more information.
For example, there is a name showing on BillionGraves for a Zev Wolf Alboim who died in 1973 as a young soldier, age 31.  It says he was born in Russia and that his parents were Leah and Yeshayu.  See Below

To look for a Rachel Gal is difficult.  Too common a name.  If you can send me the link to the tree, I have a subscription, live in Israel, and would be happy to write to Avi Gal for you.
