German translation from birth record 1843 #germany #translation

Paul Chirlin
 

I would like help determining the names of the parents of Amalie Steinau born Jan 24 1843 in Hochstatten on the first line of this record from familysearch.  Translating the German would also be very helpful. If the image posted is poor the original is at Kirchenbuch (familysearch.org)

I am also reading a book called "When Rabbis Bless Congress" and they noted that for WWII 50% of all rabbis in the US served as chaplains in the armed forces. 50%!

Caribbean with Ashkenazi Jewish Dna #dna

Arinzetobias@...
 

Good morning, I have a family oral history that turned out to be a massive shock that no one has managed to answer. It started when I was six going to Barbados . I met my great grandmother, ( my mums mums mum) for the first time. I am the type always analysing everything around me. The first thing I noticed was her body frame was very unusual for the typical afro Caribbean frame. Later on she told me that her mum was white. Later that day she made dinner but refused to eat the meat saying it wasn't clean. I had no idea what she was talking about . Her family name was burgess. Doing the tourist thing we went to a synagogue, more a museum with jewish surnames of the island and there was burgess. Studying up on it there was a strong sephardi community there. So I just thought someone had a relationship. I had my dna tested by 23 and me . I got the shock of my life it said that one of my main dna other than Nigerian was Ashkenazi Jewish. Please can someone tell me was there an Ashkenazi Jewish community in barbados?  Arinze Phillips

Marcia,

The town you are looking for is Horodyshche. It's about 64 km southwest of Cherkasy and 165 km south of Kyiv.

FamilySearch has some of the town's records online, but they're not indexed (and written in Russian, of course):

1)1850 Revision List
https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/1195059?availability=Family%20History%20Library

2) 1846-1916 Vital Records (various years, not at all comprehensive)
https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/1046670?availability=Family%20History%20Library

Military conscription in Poland between the wars #poland

Relly coleman
 

Searching my family, I found a number of teenagers who were sent from Poland to relatives in France in the 1920s and 1930s.  One suggestion was that it was done to avoid military conscription into the Polish army.

What was the military service requirement in Poland at the time? Was the avoidance of conscription common among Jews in Poland? 

Any info to explain and shed light would be appreciated.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #yizkorbooks #poland

Bruce Drake
 

“Areih Zilberstein, the candlemaker,” from the Yizkor book of Gombin (Poland) is the story of an old man’s grief and longing for a son who had left for America and raised a family there.
Ironically, it is recounted by a young man who himself was about to make that journey, leaving Gombin for good.
Sitting one night on the steps of the synagogue, Arieh said to him: “You Yoinele, will soon see my son and my grandchildren. I am sending with you a piece of myself. My feelings, my longing… I am planting in you a piece of my soul.”
“Tell my son that I pray for him day and night… But please don't tell my son and grandchildren that my heart is broken from longing.”

Why were Jews over-represented?  I think it was because so many Jewish teens in the late 30's were ham radio hobbyists, and also did well on math tests.  They were over-represented in the Air Corps as radio operators and navigators, not necessarily as tail gunners.  My own cousin as a teenager was working with Lee DeForest on television in the 30's!

Maybe a silly question – but how can one check the database of names already on the memorial, to see if anyone’s missing?

Re: Researching: family Wasserman from Tarnow Poland/Galicia #galicia #poland

Howard Fink
 

Yitschok,
 
There are birth records in Tarnów for 6 children of Schaje & Sime Wassermann:
1850: Moses Chiel
1856: Samuel
1858: Salamon Zalman
1861: Isaak
1862: [unnamed girl]
1864: Riwke
 
There are also death records for 2 of these children:
1862: [unnamed girl], 7 days old
1863: Samuel, 6 years old

Scanned images of all of these records are available.

Unfortunately, the birth records at that time do not include the names of the grandparents.

I did not find any civil marriage record for Schaje & Sime, so that source of Schaje's parents' names does not appear to exist.

Similar to your grandfather, it seems that the entire family moved away later because I did not find any of records of their deaths in later years.
 
There was another couple, Schaje & Nuche Wassermen, who had some children during similar years in Tarnów.

The only other trace of this family that I found in our database of Jewish records from Poland was the 1906 marriage of Rywka, born in 1864, daughter of Schaje & Sime, to Alter Fránkel, in the town of Jodlowa.

Please contact me privately at genKnowHow@... if you would like more details about these records.

What period of time does the memorial cover? In researching the Viennese family that lived in my house for 46 years, the reason they left was that their son Heinz Dukes (born Vienna 1916) (who is not in the list of names on the Public Memorial) was expelled from the University of Vienna medical school in his 3rd year as a medical student and killed by the nazis pre war in 1938. He is commemorated by the University of Vienna in their online Holocaust victims memorial book for the three years he was a student there, and his family details are given such as name, address, names and profession of parents, date of birth etc., and the fact he was Jewish. There are many such names in this list from the University of Vienna. I wonder if all sources have been looked at? Would the Public memorial include 1938?
