BS"D

Dear SIG members

First I wanted to thank everybody for their help

May be you can help me again

I had a Grand mother named Chaje Frimet (daughter of Reb Naftuli Herz RUB)
Wieder wife of Reb David Hersh (Zvi) WIEDER.

They where the Grandparents of my Grand father Reb David Hersh (Zvi) WIEDER
(I am named after him)). Her father Naftuli Herz RUB ben Reb Jona (passed
away Feb 5th 1867 in Mara and is buried there - he is in the register in
JewishGen and his Father Reb Jona the son of Naftuli (Hersh?) RUB is buried
in Desesti. He passed away Oktober 19th 1853 (this register is missing)

Her tomb stone is in Mara (Cracesti-Kracsfalu-Kracsfalva) and on the stone
is written Chaje Frimet daughter of Reb Naftuli.

According to the Census of 1848 she is mentioned as 12 years old girl named
Frime daughter of Herz RUB.

According to Tombstone she passed away 19 or 20 June 1909 (1 Tamuz 5669) but
in the city hall, which is in the bordering village of Desessti there was no
death registration of her for the village of Mara (previous
Cracesti-Kracsfalu-Kracsfalva) where she is buried.

She must have passed away in another place in Maramures and brought to be
buried in Mara.

If anybody has any death records of other villages >from this period (19 or
20 June 1909) where she is mentioned please send them to me.

All the best and great thanks for all your help till now,

A happy Purim

pre-1938 Rymanow Jewish records #galicia

Raphael Thurm <littletalmid@...>
 

Hello,

I have recently found in my possession two Jewish records (birth and
marriage) >from Rymanow registered in 1807 and 1824. A cousin of mine
ordered these records >from the USC in Rymanow in 1992. I am rather
confused, as I have previously believed that the only surviving BMD
Jewish records at the USC office only date >from 1938-1941 (according
to Miriam Weiner's Routes to Roots). So how can there be other Jewish
records >from Rymanow >from that far back? I'm reaching out to my
cousin about this, and I have a hunch that perhaps some Jewish
records were mixed in with the non-Jewish records.

Is it somehow possible to obtain similar BMD records >from Rymanow?

These records have already been posted on the Rymanow Kehilalinks
page. Both these records bear the official stamp of the archival
manager Jan Rajckel, dated July 27, 1992.

I would be grateful if anyone can help shed some light on this mystery.

UK Jewish Communal Leaders Database expanded to include Jewish Year Book 1896-97 #unitedkingdom

Webmaster JCR-UK
 

I’m pleased to announce a significant expansion of UK Jewish Communal
Leaders Database, to include all those appearing in the Jewish Year
Book 1896-97 (the first edition of such book). The data extracted by
me comprises the names and (where available) the addresses and other
particulars of every person listed as an office holder of the numerous
synagogues, charities and communal organizations appearing in the Year
Book, together with details of all offices held by such persons,
details of other Jewish dignitaries (peers, baronets, knights and
Members of Parliament), as well as the names and addresses of every
listed licensed kosher butcher and authorised mohel (primarily in
London) - almost 1,050 individuals spread throughout Britain.


The UK Jewish Communal Leaders Database, is part of JCR-UK’s All-UK
Database, hosted by JewishGen, and was launched in April last year,
initially comprising details extracted by Louise Messik and myself, of
all the Jewish communal leaders listed in the Jewish Directory for
1874, such details having now been revised and enhanced and comprises
over 1,900 individuals.


Further details of the database, including a link to the search

I found out that my G Greatparents on my Mother's Father's side, came
from Ciechanow. I will read up all I can, but I would like to know
WHERE i may be able to find records of 1850-1920 of this place.

I am not even sure what name they went under, then, but would like to
do as much research as possible when I am in Poland.

Their name that I know them as wes:
David Rubin and Esther Barax.
David's father's name was supposedly, Walawitzky. That is not totally confirmed.
But they lived in Ciechanow.

Any and all info where I may be able to find records, names, etc....

Thank you,

JGS Conejo Valley and Ventura County (California) Monday, March 5 Evening Program: Jewish Soldiers in Blue & Gray--Movie #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County
(JGSCV) will meet Monday, March 5 >from 7:00-9:00 pm at Temple Adat Elohim
2420 E Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks, CA 91362.

Note: we have extended the time for the schmoozing corner to 30 minutes and
it will begin earlier at 6:30 PM

Program: Jewish Soldiers in Blue & Gray
(Movie 86 min.- color)

Brother against brother, Jew against Jew, 10,000 Jewish soldiers fought in
the nation's deadliest war, in numbers proportionally higher than other
American groups. Jewish Soldiers in Blue & Gray explores the little known
history of the Civil War Jews who fought on both sides of the battlefield
- 7,000 for the Union and 3,000 for the Confederacy.

Allegiances during the War Between the States split the Jewish community as
deeply as it did the nation at large: some prominent Jews, including Jewish
slave owners, cited the Torah to justify slavery, while others were leaders
in the abolitionist movement or established their synagogues as stops on the
Underground Railroad.

Jewish Soldiers in Blue & Gray unreels remarkable history, including Ulysses
S. Grant's infamous "General Order No. 11" expelling Jews >from Kentucky,
Tennessee and Mississippi; the rise of Sephardic Jew Judah P. Benjamin to
Secretary of State of the Confederacy; the imprisonment of Confederate spy
Eugenia Levy Phillips; and the unlikely story of Abraham Lincoln's Jewish
doctor who moved through the South as a Union spy.

Schmoozing Corner: Starting at 6:30 pm, facilitated by JGSCV founding
member Werner Frank

Traveling Library: Categories A and D books will available starting at 6:30
PM. To see which books that will be at the meeting, see the JGSCV website
at: www.JGSCV.org Library, traveling.

The meeting is open to the public without charge.

For more information on JGSCV or for directions, please see our website at:
www.jgscv.org

Membership: We are in to our 2018 membership drive. Membership forms are on
our website, www.JGSCV.org under "about" and will be available at the
meeting. Anyone may join JGSCV. Annual dues are $25 for an individual and
$30 for a family.

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County is
dedicated to sharing genealogical information, techniques and research tools
with anyone interested in Jewish genealogy and family history.

Looking forward to seeing you at the meeting!
