Re: Naming oldest daughter of second marriage after deceased first wife #lithuania #names

My late Mother, born in 1911, was named after her Father's first wife who died in childbirth around 1909. This was in relatively modern-time Montreal, Canada. I had always thought it strange, but it apparently is not.

Re: Family Averbuch; Shapiro #unitedkingdom

Hi,

Here's the email address of a professor who descends from the Baal Shem Tov via "Udel"? the daughter of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov. Her husband was a Auerbach = same as Averbach.  He has a group of contacts with the sane lineage. 

Isseroh@...

If the email doesn't work let me know. I have a friend, Israel Auerbach. He owns a big farm outside of Jerusalem. He has the same lineage. I also have 2 4th cousins who has the same lineage; however, I have reason to believe I am related to a different part of their family tree than the part that comes from Rebbe Nachman. 

Good-luck,

Boruch Fishman

I would be so grateful if somebody could give me any further information about these two individuals and their ancestry. I am especially interested in how they link back to the Baal Shem Tov. Please contact me via email.

It's almost definitely Lee Exlivitch.  I taught handwriting for many years, and it is quite clearly 'tch' at the end. Phthisis is a disease of the lungs mainly caught from birds. I think TB would have been written if that's  what it was.

Re: New York City Death Certificate #records #usa

I want to thank those who replied either online or privately to my question about long delays in receiving purchased vital records from New York City. I want to especially thank Renee Steinig and Elias Sawada. The former told me how to get a copy of the record in about two weeks. That is in process. The later gave me a link to a transcription of the record on Family Search. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2W69-BGC  
 
It is a bit difficult to fathom how Caroline SCHWAB was transcribed as a male named Leachen. It is correct in the index on Ancestry. The both do have one tall lower case letter and a capital letter which can be confused in some scripts. On the other hand one rarely sees wrong transcriptions which turn out to be a Jewish name (Leachen). This does answer my real question as to whether the Caroline SCHWAB who died on 12/23/1891 was my first cousin three times removed. The facts that it gives her father as Isaac MENZISHAM although it really was MINZESHEIMER in the US (actually Caroline’s stepfather) and her mother as Dolce (actually Dolz/Tolz or Theresa) are convincing.

I think it says 'Lee Eilivitech' or 'Lae Eilivitech' whereby the one that wrote it down may have made a mistake in the order of 'Lea'.

Re: Leaving Vienna with property 1938 #austria-czech #general

Jill Whitehead
 

I have been researching the Viennese Jewish family who lived in my suburban house for 46 years but they had left Vienna in a hurry in April 1939. They had lived in a mansion in a very upmarket part of Vienna near the Schonbrunn palace since 1911, but were evicted from there by the Nazis sometime in 1938. As far as I am aware they lost virtually everything and came to the UK with very little. It is unclear where they were living between their eviction in 1938 and escape in 1939, but they may have gone to their original family home not far from Bratislava in Slovakia, until that became too dangerous.

About 7000 British children were evacuated to Canada in 1940 as part of the general attempt to save children in case of German invasion.

Leaving Vienna with property 1938 #austria-czech #general

June F Entman (jfentman)
 

I have a number of family members who emigrated from Vienna to Australia between July 1938 and April 1939.  According to family memoirs, some shipped household furniture, including a grand piano, to Australia.  How was that possible after the Anschluss?

What was a notary in 19th Century Hungary? #hungary #general

June F Entman (jfentman)
 

I have a notation on a family tree that my great-great grandfather, Lazar Mandl, was "Notary to Jewish Community in Deutsch-Kreutz" from 1852-1869.  The note continues that from 1869-1901, he was a "Community Official in Szenitz."  Can anyone tell me what these positions might have entailed?

Re: Belung, Russia? #russia

Michele Lock
 

I just took another look at the map, and I see that Plunge is only 25 miles north of Kvedarna. I think your Belung is likely Plunge, which is pronounced like Ploon-ga. In the numerous Lithianian branches of my family, moving 25-40 miles to a nearby town was not unusual at all.

The Jewishgen records for Plunge are pretty extensive, and you should look for your family members there.

Re: Naming oldest daughter of second marriage after deceased first wife #lithuania #names

Dan Nussbaum
 

EdrieAnne,

Naming children after grandparents whether a live or dead is also a custom among non-Ashkenazic Jews. It is a pattern first male child after paternal grandfather, second male child after maternal grandfather, first female child after paternal grandmother, second female child after maternal grandmother, then aunts and uncles.

Re: military uniforms in family photos #belarus #russia #photographs

serhiy1999@...
 

Dear listmembers!
I think at the photos the people in uniform should be the servicemen of the  Red Army/communist functioneers of the 1920-ies.
The solo photo: the inscription on the arm band may be partly deciphered as something like the ... (military?) Komissariat... or ... Committee.... Probably this man was the on duty (just according to the arm band) serviceman/collaborator in some Soviet military or Communist institution in the Soviet Union in the 1920-ies. It may not necessarily be the military uniform, but the military style dress of a Communist functioneer/soviet institution collaborator.
At the second photo probably there is the Red Army Commander (Commander - is a Soviet name of the Red army officer before WW2, at that time in the Red Army there were no officers) or may be also collaborator of the militia (Police) or Soviet security service of that period.
That is what I may say.
