Israel Genealogical Society - Negev Branch meeting *Thursday*, 1 December 2005 #general

Martha LEV-ZION <martha@...>
 

Shalom, Chaverim! We have been so busy with the Yom Iyun that I
almost forgot to send out a reminder about our December meeting. We
have changed the day, for this one meeting, to Thursday, 1 December
2005, so we could accommodate our exciting speaker, who is coming
from the USA.
Karen Franklin's talk will be in English:
"Solving the Mystery of the Cane Handle: Utilizing the Collection
of the Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives for
Family History Research"

Karen S. Franklin creates a web of intrigue as she describes how she
utilized documents >from the Archives and other resources to
reconstruct the Brylawski family history and trace the meaning of a
cane handle she purchased at auction for William Wolf of Washington,
DC. The cane handle was given in honor of Wolf's ancestor, Julius A.

Brylawski in 1886 for service to his synagogue, Anshe Emeth of
Philadelphia (the congregation was dissolved in 1893). Also featured
in this powerpoint lecture will be other documents found in
connection with the research, including correspondence with Senator
Barry Goldwater describing gambling debts >from their 19th century
mutual ancestors. In her lecture, Karen Franklin will guide you
through different and unusual resources that might aid you in your
research for family in the USA.

You won't want to miss this program! Karen is director of the Family
Research department of the Leo Baeck Institute, which is located in
the Center for Jewish Studies in New York [a good thing to know
about if you intend to attend the NYC Conference in August!]; and is
also on the board of directors of Jewishgen. You will be able to ask
for any explanations or give any comments you may wish about these
places at this time as well.

This is a unique opportunity for all of us!

Time: 20:00 [There will be no early opening for the library on
this day]

Place: Kehilat Magen Avraham
Corner of Rehov Ad-Ad and Rehov Margalit
Omer

Phones for further details or questions:
Martha Lev-Zion - 6460494
Shirley Rosen - 6422589


Anytime you want to see what lectures are being given around the
country, you can always log onto the IGS website:

Hope to see you tomorrow at the Yom Iyun at Beit Hatefutzot!

ViewMate: Short Yiddish Translation #general

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

Hello Again ~

Along with the pictures I posted in the hope that someone will recognize
some of my mystery relatives, I also need help with a simple Yiddish
translation. It is on the reverse side of a photograph of Itchak Rozenblat
taken in Modena, Italy in 1947. I assume he was on his way to Israel.

It is VM7138 and can be accessed directly:
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html

Please respond privately.

As always, I thank you for your help and wish you all a lovely week.

ViewMate: Do You Recognize? #general

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

Hi ~

I have some mystery relatives and hope that someone might recognize them.

VM7139 is a picture of a couple in Poland.
VM7140 is a picture of three men on a beach in NY, probably in the 1920s.
VM7141 is a picture of (according to a poor translation >from the back of the
picture) Handl and Milch in Tel Aviv in 1949.
VM7142 is a picture of a woman in Poland. One stamp on the back of the
picture says "Europa * Pierwsza Polska Wytwornia Powieskszajagych ul.
Malachewskiego No. 22" A circular stamp says "B-CIA Fursztenfeld Iener Euro
Ltd. Malachowski"

You can access the pictures directly >from this link:
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html

If anyone recognizes any of the people I would greatly appreciate hearing
from you. Please respond privately.
Thank you.

So Many Towns #general

Rochelle Gershenow
 

Alexander Sharon wrote about how to identify the town your family came from
when there may be multiple towns with the same name.

I advise patience. Try to gather as much information as possible about your
family and the people who married into your family. It probably will point
you in the right direction. I, too, faced the same dilemma. My family was
from Priluki in the Ukraine--but which one (there are at least three). It
wasn't until I gathered information on people marrying into my family in
Russia and was able to plot where each came >from that I was able to hone in
on the right Pryluky. I based my decision that these families lived not too
far >from one another.

The following link will translate Russian web sites into English. It
isn't perfect, but it opens up a whole new world for us.

http://babelfish.altavista.com/tr

I found this link especially useful after accessing the Russian language
website of APORT (http://www.aport.ru/), and using its search engine to
locate possible living relatives in Cyrillic-language land. I turned up
five pages of hits, without any idea how to open this treasure trove of
new information.

Also, http://www.centropa.org is extremely interesting.

And, lastly, this interesting link:

Jewish records from Trebic & Vienna {and Blattna?} on IGI. #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

I have just come across one of the strangest entries*
on a well -known genealogical internet website
[Mormon].

It intrigues me, because I have been unable to find
out much about the Jews of Blattna, Bohemia [see
Austria-Czech message archives for my posting on
this]. Was this a couple that perhaps were baptised
later? Of course, I have no proof that they were
Jewish but if you enter the International Genealogical
Index [IGI] Continental Europe, you find PICK from
Trebic who obviously were.
We already know that the Jewish SPIRA family is listed
and we can find the father of Johanna MULDONOVA - Wolf
MULDON, who must have been born ca 1780. Johana [sic]
married Herman [sic] SPIRA on the 31 March 1844.

How did these Jewish SPIRA, MULDONOVA/MULDON and PICK
records >from Trebic {and Vienna} appear on this
website? Did they partially film the records or did
someone submit ancient family trees with these names?
I suspect the latter.

When I picked on [sorry!] Therese PICK born in Vienna
26 Feb 1841 to Josef and Maria, I cross-checked with a
list I have for Jewish births in Vienna pre 1848 and
I found a {Resi} Therese PICK born in Vienna in 1841
and her father was >from Bosing in Hungary. I wonder if
these are one and the same? Again, I wonder how she
turns up on the IGI list.

And then there is Sofia PICK born 7 DEC 1843 Wien,
Austria daughter of Ignaz and Regina; she also appears in the
early Jewish records list with father [unnamed] being
a K und K Stadtwaag pachter.

Conclusion: We definitely have some early
Trebic/Trebitsch, Moravia and Viennese Jewish records
available for us on this site.

Again, comparison of various sources is a great help
in this work. Needless to say, the families I am
personally interested in for my early family tree are
not listed. Just my luck!

Yiddish spelling of shtetl Zvil (Novohrad-Volynskij) #ukraine

Could someone confirm or correct the spelling of the
Yiddish shtetl name Zvil (= Russ. Zviagel', Ukr.
Zviahel')? I have seen transliterations as both Zvil
and Zvihl, which imply zayin-tsvey_vovn-yud-lamed or
zayin-tsvey_vovn-yud-hay-lamed. Unfortunately, I
haven't encountered a source actually written in
Yiddish.
