After being withheld for 65 years, the death books at the Red Cross's
International Tracing Service, Bad Arolsen Germany are expected to be
opened to historians and other researchers for the first time.

Will the commission vote in the affirmative? Keep an interested eye on
the issue, and the urgency that this moment demands.

Re: Family History Centers & Russian or Polish Documents #general

HJB <hjb@...>
 

want to point out
the mistakes that I made previously, and how I corrected them.

Firstly, I now went with 2 articles - FHC, some tips/comments. Perhaps
the simplest way to find these articles is to go to Google groups ->
soc.genealogy.Jewish and search this group for "some tips/comments".
The articles appeared 9 April, 2003 authored by Jane Peppler and
Sally Bruckheimer. Armed with these articles, I now know something about
using the microfilms. I knew ahead of time the films that I wanted.
I spent a fair amount of time at my local centre last fall. I went armed
with an index which I created using JRI-Poland (Thanks to those who spent so
much time indexing this information). This gave me year's and Akt #s for
the specific records I wanted. Some years may have indexes at the end of
each year, but that doesn't always happen. I did wonderfully well with the
Polish records (many of these had only Jewish records on the film) but
struggled with the Russian records. My major problem was in figuring out
which groupings were the Jewish Records. Many times these can be seen at
the end of the film. For the earlier years I could see the witness
signatures in Hebrew, but it seems that this changed along the way.

What I would like to do (if and when I get the time) is to go back to some
of these records to document where the records are for each film which is of
interest to me. Then I would pass this information on so that others might
have an easier time with these films. If others could do likewise I'm
certain it would be appreciated by those who use the films subsequently.

Another tip...if you don't have someone who speaks the language to take with
you, see if you can bring a copy of the surnames you are searching in
cyrillic. I found this helpful in IDing the records I wanted.

Thank you Malcolm Katz and Henry Best for helping me mine a little deepe=
r and expand my understanding of the great unmined Jewish history in Eng=
land. =


Before I joined JCR-UK all I knew was what I had read in C.P. Snow's boo=
ks. I must assume that my paternal great-grandfather, Frederick Rosingb=
loom, born January 23, 1799 in Gravesend, Kent,England, was listed in th=
e parish rolls simply as a matter of birth record, along with his many c=
hildren, including my grandfather, Edward Rosenbloom, born at Gravesend =
February 28, 1836, prior to separate records being established for Jews.=
=


Also, your information allows me to assume that my great grandfather was=
Ashkanasi as he had a son named Frederick, and my grandfather's first s=
on was named Edward after him. I have tried to mine information >from th=
e Gravesend area, but so far I have nothing. All of my father's brother=
s and one sister left England early in the 20th Century for Canada and t=
he US. >from my father I gathered life in the Tower Hamlets was dismal, =
but the census records show that my Grandfather (after a life on the sev=
en seas as a Merchant Marine captain) retired to the area when my grandm=
other died leaving him with two very minor children. My grandmother, Sa=
rah, was the eldest daughter of a substantial Christian family named Eve=
rsfield with long established commercial ties in Kent County. They wer=
e not happy with the union.

I'm not sure where I go >from here, but I keep plodding along gathering b=
its and pieces of family history along the way. All of my relatives are=
deceased, but they knew very little about our English antecedents. =


Thanks again for the great information you gave...if you have more pleas=
e don't hesitate to share it with all of us.

==R' Israel b. Eliezer, "founder" of modern Hasidism in East Europe in the

Besht.

==Ba'al Shem Tov (Owner/master of the Good/Divine Name) was a title of
respect for a rabbi who had studied the mysteries and was believed to be capable
of healing or other magical qualities. "Knowing" the ineffable and forgotten
name of God was believed to permit such a person to change the natural course
of events. (e.g. the Mahara"l of Prague who made a living golem out of clay
by anoouncing the sacred name).

==Other Ashkenazi rabbis before him and after him--even in Germany and the
west, were called Baal Shem Tov. I don't know that any of them was ever
referred to as Besht

==Lars Menk in his dictionary of German Jewish names hints at an origin in
the name of a location in Saarland, and possibly another near
Frankfurt-an-der-Oder. The name may also be an abbreviation of a number of Jewish names or of
locations. It is also a German surname.

==I don't think Bat Shem Tov is in the running.
1. The patach vowel of Bat would generally not be part of the abbreviation
2. Women weren't generally accorded surnames based on a father's name,
though their personal names could be converted into family names.
