Abraham Stern {Krummau} - Cross-references in the 1793 census of Bohemia Pt II #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Earlier in the week we discussed the forbear of Susie Boyer and Tom
Fuerth - the wealthy Abraham STERN of Trebon and Neuhaus. So who was
our doppelganger, Abraham STERN of Krummau? It helps to understand
German to read the original annotations in the census. There are also
footnotes in Czech which Hanus Grab and Jan Hellmann help me with
from time to time.
At Abraham's place of work in Prachatitz it states that he was the
unmarried, first-born son and was substituting for the resident tobacco
concessionaire, in place of his mother Rosl NEUMANN of Chlumetschek.
Abraham is stated as being a resident of Herrschaft Krummau, Bechiner
Kreis, Bohemia [Vol III p.105].

If we look at this website:
http://ekeil.gmxhome.de/vwe-a-m.htm
we can see that by 1793 the Bechiner Kreis had ceased to exist. It
was split into the Budweiser and the Tabor Kreis. People were obviously
not that familiar with the new Kreis designations in 1793 and they
still slipped back to the old Kreis names.

Be that as it may, we can find Herrschaft Krummau {Cesky Krumlov}
in the Budweiser Kreis and Gut Chlumetschek is part of it. Here we
find Samuel NEUMANN who has leased a large building and runs a potash
distillery. His wife is called Rosel, originally STERN, and they have
living with them the children >from her first marriage: Samuel STERN
as first-born, Abraham as second born, then we have Salomon and Lazarus
followed by daughters Eleanora and Elisabet. [Vol 1 p. 242]

Samuel NEUMANN actually comes >from Jung Wozitzs {Mlada Vozice], Tabor
Kreis, but I have found no other Neumann living there.

So Abraham appears as a first-born at his place of work whereas at
home he is listed as a second-born. I doubt his mother would have made
such a mistake.

Stadt Krummau itself, has only one Jewish family headed by Lewy
ROSTERHOLZER and you will by now have have guessed it, he holds the
district tobacco concession. He goes under the names Lobl ROSTERHOLZ
and Lowy RUSTERHOLTZER in the Prachiner Kreis index.

We have tapped into a vein of very wealthy Bohemian Jews here, who
seem to dominate the tobacco market.

re the number of indices one has to "thumb through" for a thorough
Screen of the 1793 census of Bohemia - I did mention 16 but actually
there are 32 so far and Prague is still to come! This is because each
Kreis has a name index as well as a place index.

Thank you Celia for the detailed research steps which are so interesting to
follow. I also appreciated your comment about the search in the indexes and
the census as an art in itself. Several months ago, I went to the New York
Public Library to see whether I can have a look at the 1793 census. The NY
Public Library does not have the Census but I was informed that they could
request it on loan >from several universities. The four volumes arrived in
NY after several weeks >from Stamford University. I spent a day researching
and found it so fascinating but also very difficult to figure it out. May I
suggest the possibility of a conference/workshop for those of us who would
like to learn some of the research methods? It could be a nice get together
anyway.

I am looking to find where my Grandmother came from. She was born under
the name of BOGART in the Republic of Georgia in Russia somewhere around
1900 I searched the database using Russia as the country without
success. I also searched using Georgia as the country without success
When she left Russia to avoid the Pogroms as that time she emigrated to
the U.S. On the boat she came on she married a Samuel DAITCH and
arrived in New York Ellis Island as Mrs Daitch. I also looked in the
Database for Daitch without success. Can anyone tell me how to do a
better search to find out about my Grandmother. All the information I
have is inputted into the DB.

Abraham STERN, 1793 census etc #austria-czech

Thomas Fuerth <08.330516@...>
 

I have found the rigth Abraham STERN first through Julius Mueller who found
his son Wolf in the Familianten book. Wolf STERN was father of my
grandfather´s grandmother. Then I got information >from a third cousin in
Prague Jiri Dubsky, who´s father made a family tree where Abraham and his
wife Rosina were amog all other names. I got their birth and death dates
this way. Then I got information >from Alex Calzareth - who also is related
to this Abraham Stern - about the inventory in Judaica Bohemiae, where all
the children are listed. Then I went to the 1793 census vol I and III. In
the inventory it says that Abraham owned a house in Kardasch Retschitz and
in vol III page 348 I found two of his sons there: my Wolf and a brother
Joachim. In vol I page 260 Trebon you will find all the children. And in vol
III page 333 you will find Abraham STERN´s sepmother Francisca widow after
Elias STERN, who was Abraham´s father.

Three of the eleven children of Abraham were married and their husbans´names
were in the inventory and I found all three of them in the 1793 census. One
of the marreid daughters were Anna. She was married to Lazar FUERTH and
their daughter is the link to Susie´s family tree. How Lazar FUERTH is
related to my FUERTH I do not know yet, but he as well as my FUERTH people
are >from Susice.

This long answer only to show that I think that the printed version of the
1793 census is very good source to trace relatives. But you must read
through all the books because people moved and lived at different places and
you must combine with information >from vital records and Familianten books.

On internet http://www.rozmberk.org/English/index.html I also found a map
of the Jewish houses in Kardasch Retschitz with all the names of the house
owners. When I first found this site I did not know that this Abraham STERN
was my Abraham, but now I know that he was. Something happened with this
web site and there is only the text left no pictures and no map. But I have

Re: Schwarz family search - Chausnik, Tabor Kreis #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Herbert Schwarz of Toronto is looking for the Bohemian SCHWARZ family.
He has Nathan SCHWARZ born Chausnik, married to Lidmila. Their son
(Herbert's gt-grandfather) Jakob SCHWARZ was born Aug. 30. 1811 in
Chausnik, he was married to Barbara.

Their son Moritz SCHWARZ was born 26 Feb 1852 in Gauftnitz-Stadl
[Gauftnitz could be Chausnik]; Moritz was married to Franciska (Fani)
POPPER born May 14,1856 in Radnin - Radenin and Chausnik are both in
the Tabor Area.

This search also yielded its frustrations as Chausnik is not indexed
[forgotten perhaps?] but is listed in the Table of Jewish Communities
of the Tabor Kreis [Vol III p 420]. It was not too difficult to find by
thumbing through and by looking up *SCHWARZ*.

However, had Herbert checked the Austria-Czech message archive [a
prerequisite for any posting] he should have noticed that I had written
about this SCHWARZ family very recently - 20th October 2005, STEIN
family of Skopitetz. Please enter *Chausnik* into the Austria-Czech
SIG message archive *search box* and you will find the reference to
SCHWARZ.

I cannot emphasise too strongly that this archival message search
offers us a goldmine of cross-linked data.

In 1793, Jakob SCHWARZ {Herbert's gtgtgt-grandfather] lives in a
rented property in Chausnik, [Choustnik], Tabor Kreis surrounded
by his large family [Vol III p 328]. He deals in tobacco, wool,
feathers and miscellaneous textiles. His wife is Barbara. The happy
couple have four unmarried sons: Nathan, Wolf, Alexander and Jakob
as well as five daughters, Sara, Susanna, Paula, Sibilla and Elisabetha.

So this must be Herbert's gtgt-grandfather *Nathan*, as there is no
other Schwarz in Chausnik. As Nathan's son, Jakob, was born in 1811
we might assume that the latest Nathan could have married was in 1810
i.e. Nathan might have been born in 1785. In fact, logically, the
latest he could be born is mid-1789 as he is the oldest of four boys
and the census was taken on 28th January 1793. Anyway, Jakob Snr must
have been born at the latest ca 1760.

The Jewish families in Chausnik are SCHMOLKA, KOHNx4, LAFLER [umlaut];
HERRMANN & METZEL. A schoolboy >from Prague called Samuel WEISKOPF is
staying with Samuel KOHN and his family and Herschel METZKER >from
Drachowitz is an apprentice in the distillery of Juda HERRMANN.

They above named families are the permanent residents of Chausnik but
they have a schoolmaster Jakob LINKER >from Horzepnik/Horepnik, Tabor
Kreis. There are no other LINKER in the Tabor Kreis but there is a
book-dealer [very rare in this census] called David BERG and his wife,
Judita, who live in house No 15 Horzepnik. I would not be surprised
if Jakob LINKER took a few of David BERG's second-hand books with him
to Chausnik to use in his lessons to the nine SCHWARZ children.

Herbert owes Jakob LINKER, their teacher, a big thank you for his efforts.
