ViewMate Challenge: Dating a old list of names #galicia #translation

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

Dear Group, this is a difficult one - old polish text in Latin style !

Pls see this:  https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM94398

It's a cover page of a list of peasants in the Galician town of Husiatyn (Tarnopol District).

I'm asking for help in translating this, and even more I am very interested in DATING this document.

While there's a date ("1789") in the text, the bottom of the page seems to say "1843".  The translation of the text may help figure this out. Is this an 1789 document?     or an 1789-18XX document?

Thank you very much.

Re: SAIONZ family in Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA #poland #russia #usa

David Ziants
 

Thank you Dianne for the tip. I wasn't fully using alternate spellings/soundex etc when searching the name. Someone off list helped me with this, and I now have her grave stone photo:-

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/199864488/sara-zelenkofske

The patronymic is rendered Melech rather than Elimelech as on Simon's stone - but these are essentially the same name (with Elimelech being more formal).

Now, am wondering whether their brother, Victor, whose name appears on the manifest (actually 1909 and not 1919 a correction a second time), changed his family name to ZION - in which case Molly would have been his wife and this appears on census and other records this way. Then he died 1960.Yet, we have a Victor ZAJONE (d 1946) in Pennsylvania Death Index, 1906-1964

Name Victor Zajone

Death Jan 11 1946;   Philadelphia

Certificate number 10101

For the grave stone of Victor Zion who died in 1960, I would need to contact the cemetery for the location of the grave, so I can fill in a request on Find-a-grave etc.. There seems to be less information around concerning the one who died in 1946.

Thank you for your continued input.

Have you tried various spelling options when you search phonetically and do not use the exact option.  Have you checked JOWBR
And FindAGrave which can be very useful.

I have tried to reply to each person, personally. As a general follow up, first of all, the crop of ship manifest that I sent was from 1919 and not as I stated, and thank you to those who noticed and pointed this out and this changes the perspective a bit.

I was unable to find Sarah ZILINKOWSKY's grave on Billion Graves or Find-a-Grave - is there anyone, please, with additional search possibilities?

From the 1910 census that Michele quoted below, it seems that Simcha started using the name Simon ZAYON, and I found the grave stone of Simon D. ZAYON in Lakewood:- http://data.jewishgen.org/imagedata/jowbr/USA-00048/H3753.JPG

It mentions on his stone the names of the children. It seems that his wife was no longer alive, otherwise I am sure that she also would have also been mentioned. In any case, from this, his father's name was Elimelech - a name I am going to try and follow up on Eastern European archives through Jewishgen and JRI-Poland.

Bad Koenig Hesse Germany to Koln Germany 1880's to 1920s-Request for information #germany #general

ehrmann.paul@...
 

Hello,
I am doing research on my Grandfather Hugo=Hirsch Ehrmann.  He was born in Bad Koenig Hesse in 1882/died 1970 and moved to Koln Germany sometime from that point fwd either with his family or after he married my grandmother Elizabeth who was born in 1889/died in 1956...His Father was Issac and Mother Elsa.  I am interested about the town he lived and the possibly reasons he may have moved from BK to Koln based on the historical town or world events if any.  I am told that it was small town of about 100 Jews at that time. The towns synagogue was burned down in Nov 1938 during the nazi Night of Broken Glass.. His older brother Moses and younger sister Bertha perished in the Kovno Ghetto in Lithuania in 1941.
Thank you

Newly-Discovered Tomaszow Lubelski Book of Residents - Thousands of Record Extractions Now Available #poland #records #announcements

Sinai (Sonny) PUTTER
 

Jewish Records Indexing – Poland has now made available translated extractions of the newly-discovered Tomaszow Lubelski Book of Residents.  It’s a game-changer for Tomaszow Lubelski and Lublin Region researchers!

Each record entry in the Tomaszow Lubelski Book of Residents includes surnames, given names, fathers’ names, mothers’ names and maiden names, date and town of birth, civil status, occupation, and prior residence.  Many entries contain comments on movements into and out of Tomaszow Lubelski and changes of status updated from prior Books of Residents.

Each page of the Book of Residents is a different address, with occupants listed like a U.S. Census - head of household, then spouse, then children.  The Comments section lists changes that have occurred since the last iteration, as people move, marry, or die.  The line items include dates and places of birth and the names of both parents.  Each page seems to outline a family record page in miniature!
  

In my brief time working with these extractions, I found that the Books of Residents appear to capture the people who otherwise avoided civil registration of their birth, marriage, and death events.  The Comments in the extractions which track movements of people into and out of Tomaszow Lubelski were incredibly helpful in learning where to look for records outside of Tomaszow Lubelski.

 

The Tomaszow Lubelski Book of Residents records-extraction project covers years from 1893 to 1930.  Individual entries were modified as events occurred in the period.  The newest installment now available includes 5470 entries and 1556 different surnames and variations of surnames. 

 

When completed, the project is expected to extract about 13,000 unduplicated entries from these Books of Residents.

You can receive all the entries for your families by supporting the Tomaszow Lubelski Book of Residents records-extraction project.

By becoming a qualified contributor to the Tomaszow Lubelski Book of Residents records-extraction project, you will be eligible to receive all the entries for your families that are now available, plus all future entries as new installments are released.

Please contact me at sonnyputter@... for more information.

JGS Toronto. Free Virtual Meeting. VIENNA, BUDAPEST, PRAGUE — THREE GREAT JEWISH COMMUNITIES. Henry Wellisch. Wednesday, 14 July 2021, 7:30 p.m.. ET. #announcements

Jerry Scherer
 

JEWISH GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY OF TORONTO

 

VIENNA, BUDAPEST, PRAGUE — THREE GREAT JEWISH COMMUNITIES

 

Speaker: Henry Wellisch

 

VIRTUAL MEETING: Join from Home

 

Wednesday, 14 July 2021, at 7:30 pm. ET.

 

These three cities were, before World War I, part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. During the 19th century, thousands of Jews moved to these cities from the provinces to look for a better life. Once there, they became an important part of their new homes; some became leaders of society and distinguished themselves in the fields of science, literature, medicine, theatre, politics, etc.

 

The presentation will cover a period of several hundred years until World War I. For those who had relatives who may have resided there, Henry has prepared a register of research materials. These will be found on the website of the JGS Toronto and will consist of searchable birth, marriage, death records; and cemetery records, city directories and others. Also provided is an extensive list of books on the history of these communities.

 

Henry Wellisch was born in Vienna and escaped from there in 1940. He spent the war years in a British Internment camp on the island of Mauritius and in 1944 volunteered for the Jewish Brigade. In 1948 he joined the Israeli army and participated in the War of Independence.

 

Over 25 years ago, he began to investigate his family background, concentrating his research on the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and was able to trace his family back into the middle of the 18th century. He has published numerous articles on Jewish family research, has lectured on various genealogical subjects, and was president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Toronto from 1993 to 1998.

 

To register, please go to:

Please keep the acknowledgement email when you receive it as it contains your personalized link to join the Zoom meeting on 14 July.  

The presentation will be recorded. It will be available to JGS Toronto members in the “Members Only” section of the Society website, a few days after the event. It will also be available to non-member registrants for one week after the event

Re: MORITZ-LINDENHEIM tree #germany

mblas@...
 

Hi Miriam,
I notice that you have listed Kronheim as a surname of interest.
My great grandmother was Sophie Kronheim (1853-1927) and was born in Schlitt, Germany. She married Julius Leiser Lasnitzki who came from Guttstadt, Poland. I believe that Sophie (sibling/cousin?) would also have been related to Johanna Kronheim who came from Konigsberg. Johanna married Jakob Simonsohn and together they had 3 sons; Max (1873); Selmar about 1875 and Moritz born 14 March 1882 in Schönwalde, Barnim, Brandenburg, Germany and died 21 April 1921 in Schönwalde, Barnim, Brandenburg, Germany. I am looking for any information that may be out there with regard to my great grandparents and their extended families.
Thanks in anticipation,
Milton Lasnitzki

Bob Roudman -

Regarding red hair and the Rudman name, it’s important to remember that red hair is a recessive gene. It would come out unless both parents had a recessive red hair gene. These things are important to remember when using appearance as a comparison.
