explanation of notation: "Sura dn. 18 I 1939 do Warszawy" #poland

Robert Strumwasser <RobertStrumwasser@...>
 

Hi
I recently came across the following notation/abbreviation, and I was hoping
that someone could tell me what it means.

"Sura dn. 18 I 1939 do Warszawy" The "18 I 1939" almost certainly refers to
a date of January 1, 1939.

The notation appears in the 1939 Biala Podlaska Census, and refers to a
woman named Sura Sztromwaser, born July 10, 1910 in Biala Podlaska.
Any help/thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

My gg grandfather arrived in New York on September 7th, 1853 on the

origin looks like it's "_erfrits", but I can't make out the first letter.
It looks like it can be "H" or "W" "ST" or "LB". Does anyone have a clue as
to what the place might be? I can email the manifest if anyone is
interested in looking at it directly.

Thanks for your help.

Looking for PELTZ family - NY/NJ #jewishgen

Yaacov Slizak <yslizak@...>
 

Hi,

I'm looking for any information related to the family of Joseph and Anna
PELTZ.

Joseph was born in 1874 in Dubienka, Poland. He arrived in the USA by 1909.
Anna SPOSOB nee PELTZ was born in 1881 in Kurytnycja, Ukraine. She arrived
in 1912.

3 daugthers to this couple: Mary (b:1912), Rose (b:1914) and Ethel (b:1917).

I have reasons to believe Ethel married a George WAGMAN. I have no
information on the other two daugthers. One of them may have been a dentist,
but I can't confirm it.

Any information that could lead to identify descendants of this couple will
be greatly appreciated. Please reply privately.
Thanks

Klein Bubna - Bubny (Prague) #austria-czech

Hi list,

has anybody ever come across Klein Bubna or Bubny in Czech? 
Until 1884 it was an independent town/village and then became a part of
Prague. 
Today Prague Holesevice-Bubny is Prague VII. 

My gggrandfather Josef Lang was born there in 1802. 

According to Jiri Fiedler's "Jewish Sights of Bohemia and Moravia" there
existed a prayer hall in Bubny from the mid 19th century and a synagoge
from the late 19th century which today is used as a store-house.

I have not been able to find birth records for Josef Lang in the Prague
State Archives.

Where could I find more information about Bubny and Josef Lang's
parents?

Re: Name Changes in Schwarz Kostelletz, Kaurzimer Kreis - 1793 #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

I was most interested to read Hanus Grab's careful analysis of the name
changes in Schwarz Kostelletz Kaurzimer Kreis. First of all, I apologise
that I made minor mistakes in the spelling of both *Schwarz* and *Kaurzimer*,
in the subject line, which are now rectified.

Perhaps I should have written an introductory sentence to my original
posting, as I fear I may have mislead Hanus. I had *only* picked out the
name in the census of this Herrschaft which showed previous names.
Thinking of Hans Weigl, I was particularly struck by the number of Herschels!
My interest was the actual choice of names - thus it was not a statistical
analysis.

There are actually 51 families in this Herrschaft and a surprisingly large
number - 18 - are without Schutz status, ie about 35% compared with an
overall figure of 6% throughout all the Kreis. Out of the 51 families only
the 19 I mentioned are listed with name changes - so there are over 30
families who apparently did not need to change their names by the deadline
of Jan. 1 1788; alternatively any name change which took place has not been
recorded in the census.

If I understand Hanus correctly, the majority of Bohemian families already
had their "Czech and Germanic" names well before 1788, so perhaps these 30
families had old-established family names?

It seems odd to record 19 name changes and not the others, so I suspect
Hanus's suggestion is indeed correct. In my family, I know that many family
names were listed in the BMD records of Grossbock and Kolin, many years
before the Toleranz Patent Edict deadline. You can also find family names
in the 1783 census of Bohemia.

The names listed in Schwarz Kostelletz Herrschaft in 1793, with no comment
of a name change are:
AKER BERNER BRAUNER DUB* DONATH HEKSEH GANSZ
GRUNBERG HORACK* KAIS KAM KATZ KAUFMANN KOSCHERAK
KRAUS LASCH LENOCH* LIPA* MARTINOWES* PACOWSKY*
PATZOWSKY* PICK POPPER REICHMAN STRANSKY* TAUSIK
WEISBERGER

This makes me wonder why some Bohemian families did adopt "Czech or Germanic"
names so early - was it perhaps because they were already well-established
in business and trade, ie secularized, emancipated and perhaps even *middle
class*, before their time?

They realised, without any enforced legislation, that a name change would
help them get on in society at large and in the "world of trade " as it
then existed?

However Hanus writes to me [I have his permission to quote] refuting this
commercial connection, suggesting that the background to the early name
change was *linguistic*. Bohemian Jewish families no longer spoke Yiddish -
in areas with a Czech majority they spoke Czech and in areas with German
majority, German was the language of choice. Thus depending on which areas
they lived in, they chose Czech or German family names.

Private and business letters were often written in German or Czech but
with Hebrew characters. After the reforms of Emperor Joseph II [compulsory
German schooling for Jewish children], fewer and fewer Jews used the Czech
language at home and German became their main language.

The opposite trend was noted in Bohemia after 1918, because the Jews
identified with the Czechoslovak democracy in opposition to the totalitarian
systems in Germany, Austria, Hungary and Poland.

In the list of surnames above, those with an asterisk are Czech names.
KOSCHERAK is a Jewish name with a Czech ending. AKER and HEKSEH [probable
KAIS too?) are Jewish names. Czech and Jewish names became Germanised
with change of style of writing and Hanus gave me many examples. It is
hard to display the changes because we cannot show the diacriticals:
HORACK; KOSCHERAK; LIPA; MARTINOWES; PACOWSKY/PATZOWSKY; STRANSKY; POLLAK;
RAUBITSCHEK/ROBITSCHEK; KOLLINSKY; BENESCH; WOTTITZKY; ZALUD; SUCHARIPA;
HRACHOWINA.

Thinking about this, surely apart >from the linguistic aspects pointed out
by Hanus, these pre-Joseph II name changes point to an early secularization
of Bohemian Jewry as well?

Was the situation in Moravia similar?
