Attended Camp Herzl at Devil's Lake, WI in about '61ish and Young Judea in Wimberly, TX several years in the late '50's - mid-'60s.  Also, Echo Hill in Kerrville TX in'55.  It is a Jewish-owned camp run by Kinky Friedman's siblings.  Many extended family members went to Ramah & others.

Summer day camp Miami #usa

murphy8@...
 

My mother, Miriam Weinberger August, started the first Jewish Day Camp (and Jewish kindergarten) in the Miami area in the early 1950's which was through North Dade Jewish Center which later became Congregation Yehuda Moshe. I felt such a sense of community during those years which continues to this day.  We were always singing Hebrew songs which filled the buses whenever we went somewhere off campus.

Re: What to do on Ancestry when the names change but the places don't? #general

Emily,

Do you know the names of the town(s) that they came from, or are you trying to find out those town names?

If you know the name of a town than you can put the town name in the birth field in Ancestry.  Although, that can be tricky if the town was often mispelled, or had name variants that differ greatly from the standard name.

When you type in a town name in the birth field in Ancestry it will pop up with one or more towns to choose from, and Ancestry uses the name of the country to which the town belongs today.

For example, my family was from Ariogala in The Russian Empire (1890's geography.)  Ancestry will use Ariogla, Lithuania.

If you can be more specific about your question than I can try to help more.

Have a nice day,

Sherri Bobish

Re: What to do on Ancestry when the names change but the places don't? #general

 

Ancestry uses a fuzzy matching algorithm for many search fields. Unless you click on "Exact" and even then, it would typically search for both Russia and Poland. You can also include both Russia and Poland in your searches. Worst case, you can move the sliders next to the various fields to widen or narrow your search region.

Another example is Hungary where it would find Slovakia, Czechoslovakia and even Ukraine.

When you research on Ancestry, when you put in the name of the city, options will pop up. Before doing that, though, you might want to check JewishGen’s Communities Database to see the present name and country. A large portion of cities became part of Ukraine including Galicia (Ivano-Frankvist).

I went to two Jewish summer camps. The first one I went to was Camp Tel Yehuda, which was a Young Judaea camp in Barryville, NY, at the end of ninth grade which would be the summer of 1959. For the next three summers I went to Camp Ramah, a Hebrew speaking camp, in the Poconos, and in Nyack, NY. At both camps I met a lot of other Jewish teenagers from all around the country.

You need to know and search for all possible place name changes and variations.  In general, original records were recorded with the name of the place at the time of the recording and indexed accordingly.  However, our ancestors answered a simple question like "where were you born?" at times with the place name in effect when they were born and at times with the current place name (i.e. Russian Empire vs. Poland) and again indexed accordingly.  Compounding this problem is the wide variation in spellings.  For example, Szczuczyn is sometimes recorded and indexed as Stuchin, etc.

Thank you very much for the second two links, but I have not been able to find how the first 4 connect to the Rebbe. Is there a way to determine their line of connection to him?

Dear all,
Maybe useful..
Enclosed a list names of poor inhabitants of Alt Schotland (Danzig/Gdansk) that I found listed as potential beneficiaries of the Perlach family foundation when they were in the process of moving their business to Konigsberg (Kaliningrad).

Re: Did you go to a Jewish summer camp? #usa

Alan Reische
 

I should have added that each of the boy camps had a sister camp located in the immediate vicinity: Samoset>>>>Kearsarge, and Winaukee>>>>>>>Robindel. Robindel still operates in Moultonboro; Kear-Sarge closed some years ago, but there are a number of blog postings about the favorable experience there. The sad truth is that many of these camps were located on prime real estate and it requires both enormous dedication to say 'no' to high seven figure offers from developers, and significant capital reserves to keep running over the years.

According to their Hebrew web site, the phone number of the old Jewish cemetery in Jaffa is +972-3-7953600.
When calling, there is an option to be directed to an English speaker.
Hope this helps.

I would surmise that July 27, 692 = July 27, 5692 = July 27, 1932.(where the year is the accepted abbreviated form of the Jewish year)
Likewise October 30, 712 - October 30, 5712 = October 30, 1951

Re: Seeking correct name and location of "Rosopovitch", Belarus #belarus

Ronald Killian
 

Michele,
I think you may have solved my Rosopovich question, or at least as close as we may get. Asipovichy (aka Osipovich) makes sense to me:
1) Asipovichy/Osipovich is very close to Rosopovich, and its location is proximate to Bobruisk and Svisloch, as well as to Parichi.
2) I know that Parichi was Morris GARELICK's birthplace, confirmed by recent research by Yuri Dorn's Belarus team.
3) Bobruisk was the last community that the family lived in before Morris immigrated to the US, this from his passenger list, naturalization papers, his oral histories, etc.
4) Morris's heavy Russian accent and imperfect English may have obscured his pronunciation of this town, as you suggested. His grand-niece had said that she did not know if she had heard him correctly, and she was attempting to spell the towns as she heard them, many years ago.
5) While we have confirmed his GARELICK family lived first in Parichi and later in Bobruisk, I do not believe there is a way of determining the other two locations and when they lived there, as it would have been for fairly short periods of time. Morris was born in Parichi in 1888, and the family moved to Bobruisk in the 1895-97 time period, based on certain records, so it would be fewer than 9 years that they would have moved to the other two communities before settling in Bobruisk. For now, I will go with the possible Asipovichy...with an asterisk.
Many thanks to you, Janet, and Sherri Bobish for your suggestions. and help.

Re: Did you go to a Jewish summer camp? #usa

A. E. Jordan
 

I am not sure what the originally question was ....

My mother went to a camp in Denmark, Maine --- Camp Walden. It dates back to 1916 -- but my mother was there during World War II. I am not sure if it was strictly a Jewish camp but they founders were a Hirsch and Altschul and later run till the 1990s by a niece who was a Cohen.

My mother had very found memories of the camp ... even though there were sent to pick beans one summer in the fields until the word got back to the parents in Brooklyn ..... and all the girls were I would guess from Brooklyn although I vaguely remember my mother saying the train they traveled to and from camp split with another section maybe from Boston? From the stories told the Brooklyn girls were all young Jewish women but she never talked about any Jewish rituals at camp.

The camp still operates and I know my mother followed its progress and held it among her fondest memories until she passed at age 90.

Re: change of surname #names #romania

Odeda,

You may have a point there. My great uncle's original name was Yehuda-Leib Cojocariu. So he may have been named after an ancestor named Leib, and he eventually may have used the patronymic "Leibovitch".

Re: Did you go to a Jewish summer camp? #usa

A. E. Jordan
 

PS to my earlier message about the girls camp in Maine for Jewish girls.

My uncle. my mother's brother went to a boy's camp. He was five years older so likely talking he went to camp in the mid or early 1930s. I don't know the name but we even have some family movies from parents' weekend at the camp. I would have to find those movies to see if it showed any specifics such as the name of the camp.

While my uncle came from Brooklyn the boy's camp must have drawn from around the Northeast. I would guess it was somewhere in the northeast for its location and in an odd quirk of fate another boy at the same who came from Northeast Pennsylvania also was at the camp and he remembers my grandparents coming on parents weekend. The boy would marry my father's sister ... so when my uncle from my father's side of the tree would come for visits he would tell us stories about my mother's parents from the camp visit in the 1930s to see my uncle from my mother's side of the tree although my parents were not married till 1950 .... it's a small world after all .....
