Translation Request: Portuguese #translation #galicia #sephardic

Steve Jaron
 

Good Evening,

I was hoping I could have some assistance with some Portuguese translation. My 2nd great grandfather's cousin ended up in Brazil in the 1930's and recently a fellow researcher found his will. We are hoping to get a full translation if possible or at the very least for now; any genealogical and historical information. The will is in a public Dropbox folder - Click Here To View.

I am also attaching the file below 

I have also posted this to two Facebook groups with the same request.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you to everyone who chimed in on my question and more (like Jacob's cause of death). Each observation and deliberation adds to the story I'm trying to discover. I'm landing on Eilovitch for now, and there are Eilovitch and Eilovtich-esque surnames in the Family Finder database, so I'll pursue more information with those researchers. Much appreciation for this knowledgeable, lively and generous community!

Hi Simcha -
Of course I noticed.  Errors like that are not uncommon. I didn't point it out since it is irrelevant to the translation and not unusual.
In the vast majority of the cases I imagine the family members cannot read Hebrew well enough to catch the error and they are oblivious of it.

Finding directions to a grave at the Warsaw Cemetery #poland

Todd Cohn
 

Hi, 
My daughter will be visiting Okopowa on Jan 4.  She is with a group and on a tight schedule. 
I would like her to visit the graves of our great grandparents.  We know the "coordinates" but still with the cemetery as big as it is how can I map it out for her in advance?
Any recommendations?  Thank you!

Re: Next JewishGen Webinar: Jews in the US Military #JewishGenUpdates #education #usa

judieson@...
 

Hi from Judie Rice in Torrance

I have worked in this upcoming subject area, personally, in honor of my father, and several uncles who were members of the U.S. Army (one Navy)and (one Air Force)........to have them registered in the Washington Museum of Jewish Military....(I can't recall the exact name of the Museum..JWV connected etc.).  

Before covid, my brother, nieces and I went to Yad Vashem with an appointment to present photos and stories for archiving on my dad's history.  He was an immigrant from Lomza Gybernia in 1923, when at age 16, he and his father came thru Ellis Island.  He later enlisted in the Army before WWII...stationed at Madison Barracks/Camp Drum, in Sackets Harbor/Watertown,NY.  He was responsible for the sharpshooter rifle brigade, as well as the mounted service, and soccer teams, and then even made Fire Chief for the on-base firehouse. He was told that was one of his assignments as he was the one soldier who wasn't out drinking evenings and weekends...always making a smile from that comment.      

His enlistment ended and then he was drafted into the Army, training at Ft. Bragg in No.Carolina before being shipped overseas to Germany....and again in sharpshooter activity, as well as being the driver/escort/translator for officers going to various sites to interrogate German was prisoners, as he was fluent in German/Russian/Hebrew/Yiddish/English and a bit more.

Our story about our dad was welcomed at Yad Vashem as they were, and still are, very interested in collecting data and memorabilia particularly about European immigrants to America before WWII,  who then enlisted and/or were drafted into the American military....and so we donated our photographs along with stories, as well as the many photographs of our paternal grandparents and my dad's siblings.

Small aside..when our researcher asked for details on our Dad's military troop numbers, he stopped short, and said in quick remarks...
"Did you say he was from unit, troops,company ????? etc."......and I replied yes as I began handing over the government notices and military records...and he jumped up from his desk (young man) and literally ran into an adjoining office, opened a file drawer and began shuffling through boxes and files.......coming out smiling as he remarked that just the week or so before our appointment, another family handed in the paperwork on their family's immigrant who served in the exact same battalion/troop etc............small world, very bright young man doing the intake, with a powerful memory, and so excited at the coincidence.

I've simply Googled the name of his 'company' when he served actively in Germany, as well as the name(s) of the towns ...and up came hundreds of photos and maps etc., which I have pored over several times...but haven't spotted my father.  :)

I'll try and watch the JGS program next week...but just thought this was all coincidental.
Best wishes,
Judie Cynkus Rice
Torrance,Ca.

2.“Suddenly Jewish by Barbara Kessel, Director of the Board of Jewish Education of Greater New York.

This YouTube lecture  describes  her book factually and humorously . It takes place at a Barnes and Noble Bookstore in New York City. Kessel attempts to find  perspective on this phenomenon by surveying the experiences of a large sampling of adults who discovered at some point that their ostensibly non-Jewish families were, in fact, Jewish. Kessel divides her subjects into three groups: the all-too-familiar categories of hidden children of Holocaust survivors, Jewish children who were adopted by non-Jews, and the crypto-Jews who descended from the victims of the Inquisition and forcible conversion.

HOSCHANDER family of Michalovce, Slovakia #austria-czech

AJ <the_ravaj@...>
 

Am seeking information about the HOSCHANDER family of Michalovce, Slovakia. I already have the names via JewishGen from the 1930 census. I also have the names from the Yad Vashem list of victims. I was wondering if there is online access to cemetery records, and if anyone can suggest other sources. I tried to contact Vivian Kahn via the email given on the JewishGen Michalovce page, but the message bounced. NB I do not currently have access to Ancestry or My Heritage accounts, or any LDS family history centres (they are still closed where I live).
With thanks

Re: 1910 English Handwriting Question #translation

Sherri Bobish
 

Paula,

If you know what town your family originated from than you might look at records from that town and see if any surname look anything like the name written on the cert.  The handwriting is poor, and I'm sure that the name was written phonetically, at best.

Many databases of old records from various countries can be searched through JewishGen:
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/

Good luck in your search,

ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

The Germany where our ancestors lived is not the Germany of today.
Its boundaries have changed markedly over time. Before its unification
in 1871, Germany was more a concept than a state, composed of
dozens of kingdoms, duchies, and principalities large and small.
Each of these states had its own laws and attitudes toward Jews.
To do research in “Germany,” one must know which places belonged
to which state at a given time, the legal status of Jews there, and
the records that they kept. Germany has an enormous wealth of
records pertaining to Jews, especially after 1800, but there are no
simple, global rules for using them.

 

This talk works backwards from today’s Germany to the early
19th century, emphasizing historical events and their impact on
Jewish life, and the way records were kept. Where (in what states)
were my ancestors located and what was the legal status of Jews
there? What records exist and were kept where?
To properly research Jewish records there, you will need to answer
these questions. Here is your opportunity to learn from an expert
in German-Jewish genealogy!

 

ABOUT OUR SPEAKER

Roger Lustig is a consultant and family history researcher based
in Princeton, NJ. He is one of the long-time leaders and expert
research coordinator of JewishGen’s German Research Division
(formerly GerSIG, the German-Jewish Special Interest Group).
He is an expert on general German Jewish research and history
and specializes in the parts of Prussia that became Polish in the
20th century. Roger is a native speaker of German and has had
extensive experience with different types of old German handwriting
and print and the information contained in handwritten records.
He has researched in libraries and archives across Germany and
Poland, and transcribed countless vital records,
with many from West Prussia and Upper Silesia.
Roger has worked in archives in the US, Germany, and Poland
and advises museums and civic groups. Additionally, he has
developed databases and contributed over 25,000 records to
JRI-Poland, while keeping abreast of research concerning all
the former and current German-speaking areas.
