Who was Chaye Rechel Lev Lishe? #general #galicia #poland

Alan Reische
 

I have identified my g/grandfather Simon Reische, who on more than one
occasion appears as 'Simon Lishe' in census or death certificates.
Consequently, I'm searching both Lishe and Reische. I've also identified
Simon's father Abraham Max or Mordechai, with no surname, and his mother
as Sarah Knee or Knie.

Family Search has linked them with the 1892 marriage of a woman named
Chaye Rechel Lev Lishe, to a man named Mayer Gurfein. The image appears
on Viewmate 95116 at
https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/full.asp?ID=95116&loc=A&name=95116ChayeRechelLishe%2Ejpg
<https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/full.asp?ID=95116&loc=A&name=95116ChayeRechelLishe%2Ejpg>.


Chaye came from Rzeszow Voivodeship, which is the general area of
origination for my family. Her father is identified as Abraham Marios
Lishe, the Marios possibly being a mistranscription. A quick Ancestry
and Family Search check doesn't reveal anything further on her, and the
name is completely unknown to me.

I have two questions in logical order:

1. How does the Family Search algorithm operate? Does it suggest linkage
as a possibility or a likelihood?   If its only a possibility and not a
likelihood, I can treat this as a coincidence, since the name 'Lishe'
appears not infrequently in Dembica and surrounding areas.

2. If its based on likelihood, then do other members recognize her? Can
someone suggest an Anglicization of her given names?

Thanks for any suggestions you can provide. I'm guessing its a
coincidence but don't know enough about how Family Search operates to
feel comfortable in concluding it.

If you are looking for an editable graphical form of family tree, you might appreciate GenoPro. It is a simple client (resident on your Mac, not online) software, downloadable from its website. You can easily create a constantly modifiable tree according to additions and amendments, no limits to the number of people involved. You also can create a 'report', which summarizes all the data according to each person or each surname listed.

Sunday Lecture: Esther the Queen and the Brothers Buzaglo #events #sephardic

contact@...
 

Join Sephardic World this Sunday to hear Ali Erginsoy tell the amazing story
of a Sephardic adventurer, his wayward son, the wronged widow, and the
scheming brother-in-law.

The great historian Cecil Roth said of Joseph Buzaglo: “If in the annals of
the eighteenth century there was any career more fantastic than his, it has
escaped the notice of the present writer.” The lives of three of Joseph's
brothers, Moroccan Jews who emigrated to London in the 1730s, were almost as
eventful. And in the shadows, the figure of Joseph’s third wife, Esther
Reyna Bentubo - Esther the Queen - a woman who refused to be pushed down.

Ali Erginsoy is a former journalist at BBC television, including working on
their flagship news program, Newsnight. He is also a filmmaker and
consultant. He is a regular contributor to the discussion of Sephardic
genealogy.

The meeting is on Sunday 5 September 2021 at 11am in LA, 2pm NYC, 7pm
London, 8pm Paris/Amsterdam, and 9pm Jerusalem. Patrons can join us on Zoom.
Everyone is invited to join us for free

Morris and Matilda Lyons #germany #unitedkingdom

pelling97@...
 

Hi,
I am searching for records of my GGG Grandparents, MORRIS(MOSES) and MATILDA LYONS. The records I already have show they were both Jewish and both born in Hamburg about 1815 (+/- 5 years). They migrated to Glasgow sometime before 1839 when their first child's birth is registered there. I have found records of their lives from that point onwards but have had no success in looking for information relating to their origins in Hamburg and their families before that. I contacted the Hamburg Jewish Genealogical Society to search Hamburg births but they found nothing.

Relevant information I have:
Morris (Moses) Lyons b. circa 1815 in Hamburg. His Hebrew name is recorded as 'Moshe ben Yechiel' which I believe means his father was called Yechiel. I have searched for a Yechiel Lyons in all online records but without success. Morris was an artificial flower maker. 
Matilda Lyons b. circa 1815 in Hamburg. I do not know her family name before marriage. Her short obituary published in the Jewish Chronicle has the phrase' American and Australian papers please copy'. It is, therefore, possible that either Matilda or Morris had family members in both countries.

There are several examples of the Lyons name in the area of what is now northern Poland and my rather feeble theory at present is that Yechiel moved form Prussia to Hamburg at some point before 1815.

Would the name Yechiel have been morphed into something else? Might the name Lyons have been Anglicised? 

Does anyone have any matches or likely parallels to these individuals? 

Many thanks

Canadian Jewish News To Rebrand as a Digital Publication #announcements #canada

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

In April 2020, The Canadian Jewish News shut down. It started up again last year with a “trickle of content”.  It had previously shut down in 2013, but due to community support restarted operations within a year. Now the publication is undergoing a full-scale revamp with the same editor-in-chief.  It is prioritizing digital content, including email newsletters and a suite of podcasts, and dramatically scaling back its print edition from weekly to four times a year.

 

A new digital membership program will replace print subscribers.

 

Articles on the website will skew to a younger audience, with the goal of establishing intergenerational dialogue among the country’s 400,000 Jews.

 

Previously the staff was 40 in 2013, 16 at time of closure in 2020 and now it has seven full-time staffers including several in a newly created podcast department.

 

Its website is” https://thecjn.ca/  There is a place to subscribe for free if you scroll down the page.

Peresmyk #belarus #russia #usa

Marcia Segal
 

Greetings,

I'm helping a family friend trying to trace her grandfather, whose name (in the US) was Reuben Greenwald (b. ca. 1886, d. 1943, in Philadelphia, PA). The family story is that he "purchased" a surname to avoid the authorities and emigrate to the US. He arrived in 1889 or 1890, depending on the census record consulted. The original family name was said to be Peresmyk. I've found a record in the Belarus Revision Lists; something called NHAB Grodno. I can send an image of the page to whomever is interested.

The goal is to trace the family back to the home village, or at least the region, if possible. Reuben Greenwald was the son of David Peresmyk.

I'd be interested if anyone has come across the name, let alone have leads on how to continue the search. Many thanks.

Sincerely,
Em Segal

Yerucham,

IAJGS info on Tarnobrzeg cemeteries:

http://iajgscemetery.org/eastern-europe/poland/tarnobrzeg

"OLD CEMETERY: The oldest of the two cemeteries, 0.4-hectares, was destroyed with the site now occupied by the exhibition hall on ul. Sienkiewicza. WWII Vandalism and post-war development removed all traces. [July 2009]

NEW CEMETERY: Established at the beginning of the 20th century near the current Kaufland market, only four gravestones and one ohel survived in the 0.8-hectare site. In the 1960s, the ohel was rebuilt to protect graves of tzaddikim Elizer Horowic, Meir of Dzików, Jozue of Dzków, and Jechiel ben Meir (1850-1928) from Pokrzywnica and Tarnów. The Embassy of Israel and the Jewish Historical Institute honored the caretaker, Mr Mieczysław Zdyrski. The clean site has a fence. [July 2009]"

Need translation of birth record of Izrael Moyzes Jablow from Plock, Poland #translation #poland

DALE ZEIDMAN
 

Hi all,

I would appreciate receiving a translation of the birth record of my great-uncle, Izrael Moyzes Jablow, who was born in Plock, Poland. Attached is a record from the Family History Library, film 7953444, image 45, akt 150. I think it’s the section marked 150 that should be translated. I’m especially interested in the names of the parents.

Many thanks in advance,
