Re: Trebon and the Abraham Stern family - some perplexities #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Paul King >from Israel writes: "Celia's findings indicate that there
are at least two locations in Bohemia called Trebon: one is in the
Tabor Kreis and one is in the Budweiser Kreis."

The discussion below refers to the published volumes of the 1793
census of Bohemia:

Just to clarify: I *did not* say that there were two Trebon in Bohemia.
What I *did say* was that I only knew >from a general map of Bohemia
appproximately where Trebon: I was not sure of the Kreis; so at first
I looked into Vol III - the census of Tabor Kreis - and in the index
I found one reference to Trebon. When I turned to page 333, I found
*Schloss Neuhaus* and a whole listing for the the STERN family of Schloss
Neuhaus, including the adult children who were not living there at the
census date. This is rather unusual. Amongst this listing was Abraham
STERN married and deceased in Wittingau [Trebon]. There is no extensive
listing of his family. He is just named as one of the children of Elias
STERN of Schloss Neuhaus, Tabor Kreis.

Then I looked at the nearby Budweiser Kreis and found *Trebon*, for that
is *where* it is located. Abraham and family are listed in full, there in
Vol 1, p 260. I noted that there is no wife mentioned* - just eight children
and a retinue of servants.

However if you had picked Trebon in the Budweiser Kreis to start with - as
you should have done, if your geographic kreis knowledge was perfect - and
not looked further, you would *never have found* the STERN family in Neuhaus
as there is no cross reference to this family in Volume 1. The cross-reference
exists in Volume III only!

Hence one has to look through all the volumes of the census - and that means
16 indices so far, which is very tedious. Oh, for a cumulative index/searchable
index database for the 1793 census.

Re Neuhaus - Jindrichuv Hradec, Tabor Kreis - the STERN family were the only
Jewish family in Schloss Neuhaus - they were distillers and presumably the
distillery was situated in the castle grounds of Count Czernin; this castle
is listed as the third largest in the Czech Republic.

There were however 10 families in Stadt Neuhaus listed in the 1793 census.
These families were also rather wealthy and I will write about them at a
later stage and their migration to Vienna.

Wool and tobacco appeared to be a primary trade for the Jews of that area.
My thanks, as always, to SIG member, Rabbi Avrohom Marmorstein NYC who
pointed me to this interesting website:

http://www.rozmberk.org/English/index.html

The project on the Jewish sites of Neuhaus has sadly ceased.

Celia Male [U.K.]

Footnote:

*Thomas Fuerth today tells us that Rosina, the widow of Abraham [died
1792] herself died in 1793 - so she may have just died when the census
was taken early in that year. Thomas also tells us that there were 11
children between the ages of 26 and 4, so perhaps the three oldest girls
had already left home and married at the date of the census as the first
and second-born sons were living at the parental home - unmarried.

Y-DNA25 or a Y-DNA37
c) Each $15 gift certificate is to be used with one mtDNA test kit.
d) Kits must be ordered and paid for by December 31st, 2005
e) Not valid for test upgrades, add-ons or Y-DNA12.

You can access the tests via JewishGen.org at http://www.jewishgen.org/dna/
or directly at
http://www.familytreedna.com/surname_join.asp?code=R56553&special=True
for more information on sending a DNA sample, which just involves scraping
the inside of your cheek (and of course paying the $). Let me know if you
want to use any of the 3 certificates I have. I can answer most questions
you have if you email me directly. mtDNA is for testing your maternal line.

There is a multi-volume set of books coffee-table sized books which was
published in the late 1980's of notable Czechoslovak expats. The set is
called "Posledni Pocta" by Jozka Pejskar. I know for sure that the MMI
(Masaryk Memorial Institute) in Toronto has a set....and probably many
university libraries in the USA also have it. Hopefully they included not
only those born in the "old Country", but the "new world" generations also.
Good luck with your search.

Re Abraham STERN of Trebon b. 1747 #austria-czech

Thomas_Fuerth <08.330516@...>
 

Susie and Celia have already told you a lot about one my ancestors Abraham
STERN of Trebon or Wittingau in German.( I am "Tom >from Sweden") Yes
Abraham STERN was a wealthy man. How wealthy he was you can find out in his
inventory published in extensio in Judaica Bohemiae vol XXX-XXXI, Praha
1996. On page 47-72 you will find:

Lenka Mautsikova: Bestandaufnahme der Hinterlassenschaf von Abraham stern
Kaufmanns und Prächters einer Schnapsbrennerei in Trebon (Wittingau).

Here you will find almost everything >from a pistol to a horse, >from lots of
funiture to soup plates. It gives you a flavour of how a well to do Jewish
family could live in the late 1800 century. Abraham STERN and his wife
Rosina had eleven children, who were between 26 and 4 years old when there
father died. Rosina STERN died a year later.

Through the printed version of the 1793 census of Boehemian Jews I found
the father of Abraham STERN and probably also a brother and his family.
Celia has most of that information in her e-mail. The five volumes of the
1793 census have helped me a lot.

By the way does anyone know if the last volume - no VI with all the Jewish
families in Prague - is already published. At the Narodni Archiv in Prague
they told me half a year ago that it will be published late this year.

Trebon and the Abraham Stern family - some perplexities #austria-czech

samorai <samorai@...>
 

Regarding Susan Boyer's posting [5 Dec 2005] and Celia Male's reply [6
december 2005] about Abraham Stern family of Trebon. I still can't be sure
whether this is a definitive finding, although I have confidence in Celia's
extensive data bases and her impressive rapid access to them.

1. Celia's findings indicate that there are at least two locations in
Bohemia called Trebon: one is in the Tabor kreis and one is in the Budweiser
kreis. In trying to help Susan, I provided her with what Celia found for the
Trebon in Tabor kreis. I do not have the Budweiser kreis census for 1793 so
I could not know that there was another Trebon. However, I had used Mapquest
which showed me only one Trebon, and seemed to match what was listed in the
Tabor 1793 census. Interestingly, while the index gives page 333 for Trebon,
the name nowhere appears on page 333. A "substitue" name, Wittingau (or
Wittignau) is given Thus, there would seem to be a Trebon in Budweiser kreis
which no longer exists today, but I would like to see this verified
(contemporary or old maps, as the case may be).

2. In a private response, I deemed the Abraham Stern at Trebon (Tabor kreis)
as an "unlikely" candidate for Susan Boyer's ancestor since he would be
middle aged in 1793. However, he and 3 additional married brothers are
listed as living with their step-mother, Franciska. No children are given
for the married Stern brothers. So I couldn't absolutely rule him out.

3. Franciska Stern may or may not be rich, but she sure has a plethora of
human resources. But more importantly, her situation reveals how ineffective
the Familiant law was. There are 5 sons, presumably >from a first marriage of
Elias Stern (Franciska was his second wife, who survived him and was a widow
in 1793), four of whom are married and living in Bohemia. While no children
are given, is this a bureaucratic sleight of hand? Abraham is not given
schutz status in the data, yet he is the first born and should have
inherited the schutz status of his deceased father. I don't think that
Franciska can trump his schutz status.

4. It is a curiosity, but is the lord of the manor so weak or so powerful
that the number of Jewish families under the aegis of one widow - or even
under Elias Stern - could be admitted and maintained? Perhaps they generated
such a large income, that tax-wise they were a boon for everybody. Like Ales
Valenta's Jewish leaseholder and power agent, Joachim Kantor [Judaica
Bohemiae XXXIX, 2003], Elias Stern of Trebon (Tabor kreis) seems to beg for
further research.

Discussion Group:

" Questions You Have Not Had a Chance to Ask" Discussion Group(11:00 AM -
1:00 PM)

An informal forum for seeking assistance >from fellow genealogists regarding
"brick walls," research techniques, resources and generally anything you
want to ask about or talk about. Members with all levels of expertise are
encouraged to attend.
Discussion Leader: Marlene Bishow
---
Movie & Panel:

Sunday Afternoon at the Movies (2:00 PM - 4:00 PM)

"Hollywoodism: Jews, Movies, and the American Dream"

This movie is based on the acclaimed book of the same name written by Neal
Gabler. The men who created Hollywood, men like Adolph Zucker (Paramount
founder), Carl Loemmle (Columbia founder), and Louis B. Mayer (MGM founder)
had a lot in common. They were all born or grew up within 500 miles of one
another, all renounced their Jewish faith and ties, and all helped create
Hollywood as it is today. This film discusses the effect on how major
American films in Hollywood were influenced by the Eastern European Jewish
culture that most of the major movie moguls who controlled the studios
shared.

A lively panel discussion led by Eli Savada will follow. Ben Okner and Jeff
Miller will join him.

Request for information about Nuchim (Nachum, Natan) EEDELSBURG #lodz #poland

Charles Edelsburg <charles.edelsburg@...>
 

My name is Charles Edelsburg and I live in NY. I am writing a
biographical essay introducing a group of Yiddish poems my father wrote
while an inmate at Sachsenhausen in 1944. I am therefore in pursuit of
any information or documentation relating to my father. He was a Polish
citizen, born near Warsaw in Minsk Mazowiecki on March 22, 1907. He may
have served at some point prior to the war in the Polish Army (no proof
of this). As far as I know, at the outbreak of the war, he was living
in Lodz with his wife and child. His name was Nuchim (Nachum)
EDELSBURG. He was in the Lodz Ghetto until 1943, working, I am told, as
a printer and was then sent to several camps, including Sachsenhausen as
a member of a special group of counterfeiters working for an SS group
hoping to destabilize the British economy by flooding it with forged
Pound Sterling notes. After the war, he eventually returned to Lodz
where he worked at a newspaper (also as a printer) and remarried (to my
mother, Gita) in Sept-Oct. 1945. He moved to NYC on November 6, 1951.
He died in 1984.

My father spoke very little about his life in Poland or his horrifying
experiences during WWII. In piecing together the major signposts of his
life, I am turning to you for help in this regard, i.e. for any
documentary information about him that may exist.

Thank you for any help or guidance you can provide in this matter. I am
sending this e-mail to other members of the Culture, Press and
Information Office, not knowing who precisely I should refer to.
