ViewMate translation request - Russian #translation

Paul A. Auerbach
 

I have posted a birth record in Russian for which I need a translation.  It is on ViewMate at the following address:

https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM94890

This is the 1885 Przasnysz birth record of my possible relative, Chaia Sura Lew. The record has been indexed in the JRI-Poland Database.  While I would appreciate a full translation, the information of greatest interest to me is Chaia Sura's birth date and place, as well as the names and ages of her parents

Thanks very much for your help.

Jews in Peru, etc. #names

Rob Montague
 

Although the name doesn’t immediately ring any bells as being Sephardic, it’s unusual and might be an adapted form of a Hebrew name of the Ben-[name of father] type. In general, Sephardic surnames tend to be based on occupations, place names, or natural features. But there are exceptions to all rules. Since Jews were found everywhere (even if in small numbers in many places) it’s possible that some Jews found their way to Mali. They certainly existed in the Canary Islands, although the Inquisition found them there, too, and many migrated to the Americas to evade the Inquisition.

There are several books that list Sephardic surnames so it might be worthwhile to track them down to see if this surname appears in the form in which you know it or in a form which resembles it. That might give you a better idea of whether this family was ever Jewish.

Levi Yitzchok Zalmanson the son of R' Yekutiel Zalman and Rivka Beila Wallis and Dvorah Leah Zalmanson (Schneerson) the daughter of Menachem Mendel Schneersohn and Chaya Mushka Schneersohn were married and had several children. The children were;

2:Yosef Chaim Zalmanson
3: Mordekhai Ber Zalmanson
4:Rivkah
5:Pearl
There is significant amount of information going back, however the trail seems to go cold and I have been unable to follow the family tree. There is information about who the children married but not about their children and spouses etc.
Any information would be appreciated.

All trees have errors. That is why I prefer a single collaborative tree like geni where sources can be posted to a profile and curators evaluate the facts to improve the single One World Tree over time. I have had others inform me of mistakes in my tree, which has allowed me to improve it for future generations. This tends to be a “religious” issue and many people have made up their minds on their direction. Siloed trees will perish with their “owners.”

(Poland) President Duda Signs Legislation Restricting Rights of Former Polish Property Owners #holocaust #poland #records

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

I  previously posted on this Forum about Poland’s Parliament passing legislation preventing former Polish property owners from regaining property  including Holocaust survivors and their descendants. Polish President Andrzej Duda signed the legislation Saturday—August 14.


While the law received support across the domestic political spectrum both Israel and the United States strongly opposed this action and asked President Duda to veto it. President Duda when signing the law said, “I am convinced that with my signature the era of legal chaos ends, the era of re-privatization mafias, the uncertainty of millions of Poles and the lack of respect for the basic rights of citizens of our country."

 

Israel reacted to the signing the law by recalling the head of its diplomatic mission to Warsaw and announced it will not be sending a new ambassador at present.

 

Unlike many other countries, Poland never passed a comprehensive restitution or recompensation law. As a result, some cases made their way through the courts, other individuals were stymied in their efforts and some claims were beset by fraud as criminal gangs made false claims, sometimes acquiring high-end properties and evicting tenants.

 

In 2015, Poland's constitutional court ruled there should be specific deadlines after which administrative decisions over property titles could no longer be challenged.

 

The Polish government argues the legislation Duda signed restores certainty to the property market and halts false claims.

 

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said Poland "won't pay for Germany's crimes."

Re: family trees - who copied my information #general

Friedman, H George
 

I don't understand this worry over "stolen" family trees. Let me put that statement into context.

I will die, sooner or later. Did I do all this genealogical research only to have it die with me? NO! I want it to be available to other researchers, just as I have had other people's research results available to me. Otherwise, what is the point of my doing the research in the first place?

Of course, someone using my material ought to give me credit for it, just as I give credit to others whose materials I use (with their permission, out of courtesy if nothing else). But I would not want my research results locked away from being shared with others!

There certainly must be safeguards. I do not post my information to any site that allows others to modify it! And I am careful about privacy for the living. But if someone copies my work into their tree, and then incorrectly modifies it there...well, I don't see that that takes any skin off of me.

If you have 20 generations of ancestors, and do not publish it in some way, what good it it? Sure, you know it, but after you die, it is lost.

I was trained as a scientist, a chemist, and had a career as a university professor. So I speak from a tradition of publishing one's research. Genealogy is certainly not the same as chemistry, but I think the point is the same: Knowledge not shared is not knowledge at all.

Re: family trees - who copied my information #general

Marjorie Geiser
 

Arline,

I've found the same, where I can tell people copied what I found to their tree. I've also found incorrect info on various trees for my family. I only bother to let my closest cousins know when I find, and can prove, incorrect info.

As for those who copy my tree, I don't even bother. If it bothered me that much, I wouldn't have a tree online. To me, it's worth the risk of WRONG info (or 'stolen' info if you want to call it that), because by keeping my trees, AND my DNA, online, I've been able to connect with relatives I never knew existed!

And, to that end, as a quick little aside (to finding relatives); thanks to DNA, I just talked to a second cousin I never knew existed until last week! He was able to fill in ALL the blanks I still had on one of my grandfather's sisters, who was his grandmother!

So, yeah, there are risks, but there are also rewards. I guess it all depends on our perspective, and what we hope to find/achieve in this journey of genealogy.

Re: family trees - who copied my information #general

They may not even be related.  I've had that happen to me as well many times.  The worst was when a woman stole my pictures and attached them to people in her tree that were not related to me.  It's like she was in a contest to see who could have the biggest tree with the most pictures.  I was able to reach her and GENTLY PERSUADE her to remove the pictures.
