Help with the town of Kashmin #general

BRENERDA@...
 

Goal: identify town know as Kashmin on a US tombstone in 1868 as it relates
to the birth of deceased's father about 1795. I have searched JewishGen
sources. See details that follow.

After 30 years, the tombstone of my great great grandfather Sylvester Louis
Levy was found in Memphis, TN where he died in 1868. It reveals, after much
study of a worn stone, that he was the son of Kasrie-l LEVY >from the town of
Kashmin.

The family is of "German" heritage with the various censuses using an
assortment of names that relate to Germany.The family arrived in US about 1857
via NYC (passenger list not yet found.) According to the 1876 NYC marriage
license of Sylvester Louis Levy's daughter Mary, she was born in Pleschen,
Posen, Prussia. Pleschen is both the name of a county (my term) and a city.
In the county, in addition to Pleschen are the towns of Neustadt, Jaroczin and
Mischkow. This information I got >from Edward Luft's book the Naturalized Jews
of the Grand Duchy of Posen, in 1834 and 1835. As luck would have it, my Levy
family was among the 90% not Naturalized and thus not listed. Today, I think
Pleschen is now Pleszew, Poland. This threw me as I always assumed family was
from Bavaria.
So, I seek help in identifying the town of Kashmin and how close it may
be to Pleschen. Keep in mind that there is at least 60 years between
Kasrie-l's circa 1795 birth and Mary's 1856 birth.

I can send the Hebrew transcription of the town >from the stone and an actual
picture of the stone. The person who finally was able to read the tombstone
was a elderly orthodox rabbi and I have little doubt as to his accuracy.

I also seek who or what I could contact for the records of the Jews of
Pleschen for the mid 1800's. Actually, any insight into any of this would be
appreciated. I have fully researched my families US history, this is my first
overseas venture.

Thank you for your assistance.

The addresses in the PJTS are suspect - many families seem to be destined to
same address
- maybe a "hostel" set up by the shipping agents

Are there any records such as London city directories where I can search
residents by street address for the years 1895-1905? I'm especially
interested in who lived at 45 Morgan St. in 1899. My grandfather, upon
arrival at the Poor Jew's Temporary Shelter in London, said he was going
to
the above address.

Yes, Kelly's Directory which were annually published and are organised by
London district.

I recently went to a local history library and looked up my own family.

The entries are ordered by the order of the houses in the street.

Unless you can get someone to go there you would need to contact the Tower
Hamlets History Library - other libraries such as the British Library would
have it.

Dear Elayne,

Yes, the London Post Office did issue street directories and one
section was in street order, so that one could look up Morgan Street,
for example. However, most of the entries are commercial, not
residential. There is also an A-Z listing by last name.

The Mormons have microfilmed many of these Post Office, or "Kelly"
directories, so I would suggest that you order it >from your nearest
Family History Center and then you can become more familiar with
these directories.

Re: SCHWARZSCHILD and HOR(O)WITZ of Frankfurt am Main #germany

For the parents of Taube Landau (no relation to me) you might try the
recently published

"Biographisches Handbuch der Rabbiner, Teil 1, Die Rabbiner der
Emanzipationszeit in der deutschen, böhmischen und grosspolnischen
Ländern, 1781-1871", K. G. Saur, München, 2004 (there is a second part
covering the period 1871-1945).

I have consulted it regarding my own antecedents and it often indicates who
the parents of the wife of a rabbi are - particularly if she is >from a
rabbinic family.

Some kind colleagues who have access to this book have provided some amazing
entries containing a storehouse of information.

The team that compiled it are to be congratulated - it is in German but it
should be in every library dealing with German Jewry despite its cost -
which obviously reflects the amount of work that has been put into it.

Nick Landau London, UK <N.Landau@btinternet.com>

Does anybody out there have a copy of "Stammtafeln der von Liebmann
SCHWARZSCHILD in Frankfurt a. M. '(1555-1594)' abstammenden Familien"
by Dr Louis Neustadt (Frankfurt am Main: Dr. von Kumpf & Reis, 1886).
The copy at the municipal archives in Frankfurt disappeared 13 years
ago. The copy at the State Library in Berlin was destroyed in the war.
Neither the Library of Congress nor the British Library has a copy. I
would love to have a photocopy and would, of course, pay the costs. A
gedcom file covering the same territory (and more?!) would do too.
I am particularly interested in the descendants of Israel Aron
SCHWARZSCHILD (23 June 1803-1853) and his wife Bina HORWITZ (22 Jan
1803 Frankfurt - 31 Oct 1887 Frankfurt). She was the daughter of Zwi
Hirsch Horwitz, chief rabbi of Frankfurt am Main who died in 1817. Bina
was a child of his second wife, Taube LANDAU. __Does anybody know who her
parents were?__ Isaac Aron and Bina SCHWARZSCHILD are reportedly the
ancestors of those SCHWARZSCHILDs who ran a bank in Frankfurt. The
HORWITZes are my family. In the records I found in the Frankfurt
archives the family name is indeed spelled with just one 'O'.

I can assure this list, however, that Emanuel **is** used as a Hebrew

Rebbe of Przedborz, R' Emanuel WELTFRAJD.

It was often pronounced (in keeping with Polish-Jewish tradition) Amniel, or
Emniel, and you can find this form (as well as Emanuel) in the JRI-Poland

As many of you know, there is a JewishGen Yizkor Book
project to translate the two volume history of Jewish
Bialystok -- Pinkos Bialystok -- written before WWII by A.S.
Hershberg. Information about this project can be found on
the BialyGen website at
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/Pinkos.htm and
on the Yizkor Book website at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Bialystok/Bialystok.html.

Each Volume of this work contains a Yiddish index of
individuals mentioned in the book. Volume I also has an
index of towns mentioned in that volume. If you are
wondering whether a member of your family is referenced in
this book, having access to the surname index is what you
need.

As pages of names or places are much easier to transliterate
than to translate pages of Yiddish text, we ask our
subscribers who are fluent in Hebrew or Yiddish to volunteer
to transliterate parts of these indexes. If you are
interested in helping, please contact me privately at
