Photo identification: Palestine or Hungary? #hungary

Viviana Grosz-Gluckman <groszviviana@...>
 

I have posted on Viewmate file number VM9046
(http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=9046)
two black and white photos,taken probably in the early
1930's. I am not sure whether they were taken in
Palestine or Hungary. Can anyone identify the people
on these photographs?

Please disregard my description, which actually
corresponds to another photograph that was not
included.

Edinburgh, Scotland...Jewish sites? #unitedkingdom

asbury8@...
 

I will be traveling to Edinburgh shortly. I like to visit Jewish and
Jewish-oriented sites when I travel, but I have not been able to come up with any
in Edinburgh (beyond the two synagogues). Yes, I have contacted the
congregations there by e-mail...still awaiting responses. One of the congregations
has interesting information about the history and current life of Jews in the
city, but this is not regarding any sites to see.

I know there are sites in Glasgow, but chances are I will not have the time
to leave Edinburgh.

Alas, there just might not be anything of Jewish interest for me to see in
Edinburgh...but I thought I would ask JewishGenners in this forum.

Thank you!

Re: ANSTERDA / INSTERDA Correct spelling of family name ? #germany

Dear friends and fellow genners:

Jeffrey LEEDS wrote on Gersig:

I've recently come into possession of a copy of my
great grandparents' wedding certificate. My great
grandmother's maiden name was either ANSTERDA
or INSTERDA, the handwritten certificate is hard to read.
Ester was married to Israel NEUWIRTH in Germany. Their son Samuel married
my great grandmother.
The surname that comes closest to ANSTERDA is AMSTERDAM:

- In Fordon in the Posen province, R. Salomon Nachman AMSTERDAM died in 1832.
- Moses AMSTERDAM (b. abt. 1815) was married to Matilda TARTARKA in Prussia.
Their daughter Cilla AMSTERDAM (b. in Prussia) married Isaac BENNETT (b. in
Prussia) in Manhattan on 28 Dec 1868 or 29 Apr 1869.
- Morris AMSTERDAM was born in Germany in Mar 1860 and emigrated with his
wife Fannie to the USA in 1883.
- Jacob AMSTERDAM was born in Germany about 1875 and came to the USA around
1885.

Most of the NEUWIRTH families had their origin in Hungary and other parts of
the Austro-Hungarian Empire. There were only two Jewish persons named
NEUWIRTH I could find (in the USA census records) who were possibly born in
Germany:

- Morris NEUWIRTH, b. ca. 1862, son of Jacob N. & Jette PHILLIPS; living in
the USA since 1880, sc. before 1897-1930 in Manhattan, 1910 general
auctioner; m. 14 Feb 1897 in Manhattan: Hattie BECKER, b. in NY, daughter of
Abraham B. & Rachel GERBER (both >from Germany); no children
- Louis NEUWIRTH, b. abt. 1870, son of Max N. & Emma SCHWARTZ; m. 29 Dec
1896 in Manhattan: Jennie STERNECKER, b. in NYC, daughter of George S. &
Emma SMITH

However, there was a Jewish family named NEUWERTH in Prussia (later a part
of the German Empire). Bertha NEUWERTH (not NEUWIRTH) was born in Filehne in
the Posen province on 20 Feb 1864.

Jeffrey, could you please give us more details about your ancestors:

- Where and when was your great-grandfather, Samuel NEUWIRTH, son of Israel
and Ester NEUWIRTH, born?
- What was his mother's, Ester NEUWIRTH's maiden name?
- Where and when did Samuel NEUWIRTH marry your great-grandmother ... ANSTERDA?

You may send me an e-mail with a scan of the marriage certificate (up to 300 kB).

Good luck with your further research!

Kind regards and Shalom and the best wishes for a joyful Hanukka to all!

Need suggestions for alternative surname for HOFFMAN on an 1850's passenger lis #usa

BRENERDA@...
 

I am stumped on this one and have been doing this for 30 years. Even with
the additions of 60 million names on a major online database, I still can't
find the arrival of the following. I have tried all the logical variations on
the HOFFMAN surname (HOFFMANN, HOFMAN, HOFMANN, HUFFMAN, HUFMAN etc.) Looking
for some more obscure possibilities.

George HOFFMAN born 1821, his wife Fannie (Fanny) LOEB Hoffman born 1820,
daughter Lena (Lina) HOFFMAN born 1849. With them may have been a Solomon
HOFFMAN, born about 1839, who was in their household in 1860

Date of arrival in 1854/1855. Son Jacob born Aug 1855 in Bamberg, SC.
Family came >from the Breslau/Lissa area of Germany. A hard to read death
certificate lists a town that looks like Kirchlinde. Any idea what/where the
town is?

Bavaria and Prussia most often seen in census data. Given their SC sojourn,
they could have come via a port other than NYC.

First evidence of them is Barnwell CO, Springtown, SC for 1860 census as HOFFMAN.

I believe they came as a family unit.

The 1900 census is very clear that they were in US 45 years and married 46 years.

1870 census was Florence, Grant Twp, Darlington Co., SC. By 1872 was in
Lancaster, PA. He was a merchant/tailor.

If I can have some surname suggestions, I will find them. With new database,
I recently found my LEVY family coming over as LAPSER. Go figure.

Thanks. David Brener, Fargo, ND BRENERDA@aol.com

Re: JRI-Poland Project Initiated to Index Galician Records from LDS Microfilms #galicia

Mark Halpern
 

Dear Galitzianers:

On Sunday, December 3, JRI-Poland announced a new Area Shtetl CO-OP
project to index microfilms at the LDS Family History Library
covering Jewish records filmed at the Central State Historical
Archives of Ukraine branch in Lviv. In this announcement, I was
named Shtetl CO-OP Area Coordinator for the East Galicia area.

Since this announcement, many Galician researchers have contacted
me with great interest in this new and exciting project. Many
researchers have also pointed out mistakes in the original posting
and asked for clarification. This posting is meant to provide some
new information for interested researchers.

LDS Indexing Project
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We have learned that any project to index the records in the
microfilms of the holdings of the Central State Historical Archives
of Ukraine in Lviv requires the advance permission of the Archives.
JRI-Poland will request permission, but there is no guarantee.

The Microfilms
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The initial announcement mentioned 108 microfilms. This was an
error. There are 33 microfilms for this collection. The microfilm
numbers are 2405309-328, 2405330-332, 2405335-344. Title of the
collection is "Metrical books, 1820-1939." (The collection actually
covers records >from 1791 through 1942.) Author is "Jewish
Congregation. L'viv (Main Author)." Description: "This is a
preliminary description provided to allow immediate microfilm access.
Jewish records (births, marriages, deaths) for congregations in
Galizien, Austria; later in Poland; now in L'viv, Ternopil' and
Ivano-Frankivs'k districts, Ukraine. Most film notes cover inclusive
dates and events may be missing for some years. An archival register
is found on film with GS# 2405309, item 18. Text in Latin with some
German, Polish or Ukrainian."

These are the Jewish civil records recorded by the local Kehilla -
Jewish Community. Based on my experience with these Galician records,
the forms for the period 1791-1876 have headings in Latin, Polish
and/or German, but are recorded in Polish or German. >from 1877
through WWI, the headings were in both German and Polish and were
recorded in German or Polish. >from the end of WWI until WWII, the
headings were most likely in Polish and were recorded in Polish.
Since this part of Poland was occupied by Russia >from 1939 to 1941,
those records may be in Russian.

Corrections
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The original list included Tulchin. This was a mistake. Included in
this collection are 1792-1876 deaths for Tyczyn, a town in the
Rzeszow district in Poland.

The list also included Rzeszow, Poland (1841-1866 births). These
records have already been indexed by JRI-Poland and are included in
our online searchable database.

The list also included Chervonograd (Krystynopol), Kamenka Bugskaya,
and Kolomyya. Although Miriam Weiner's Routes to Roots Foundation
Archival Inventory identifies that the Lviv Archives has 1789-1861
marriages for Kamenka Bugskaya and 1933 marriages for Chervonograd
(Krystynopol), these books were missing at the time of microfilming
and were not filmed. The inventory of records includes 1865 births
for Kolomyya. These records are also included in the AGAD Archive
collection and have already been indexed.

Notes about the Collection
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The collection of eastern Galician records can be found at both the
Polish State Archive AGAD Branch and the Ukraine State Archive Lviv
Branch. There is very little overlap.

The following Jewish Administrative towns' records can be found
**Only** at the Lviv Archives: Brody, Grimaylov, Kozielniki (1859 B
only), Novyy Vitkov, Ozernyany (Ozerna), Ozeryany, Probezhnaya,
Radekhov, Sukhostav, and Zimna Woda (1854 B only).

The following Jewish Administrative towns' records can be found
**Only** at the AGAD Archives: Bobrka, Bolszowce, Boryslaw,
Bursztyn, Chorostkow, Gologory, Gwozdziec, Janow, Jaryczow Nowy,
Jaworow, Komarno, Kopyczynce, Kozowa, Krakowiec, Obertyn, Rawa Ruska,
Rohatyn, Sasow, Skala, Skole, Sokolowka, Stara Sol, Stratyn,
Strzeliska Nowe, Swirz, Szczerzec, Trembowla, Uhnow, Ulaszkowce,
Uscie Biscupie, Zabie (Verkhovina), Zablotow, Zalozce, Zawalow,
Zurawno, and Zydaczow.

The following Jewish Administrative towns' records can be found
**Both** at the Lviv and AGAD Archives (there is very little overlap
in the two collections): Belyy Kamen, Berezhany, Bolekhov, Borshchev,
Budanov, Bukachevtsy, Chortkov, Drogobych, Glinyany, Gorodenka,
Gorodok, Gusyatin, Ivano Frankovsk (Stanislawow), Kosov, Kozlov,
Kudrintsy, Lubycza Krolewska (Poland), Lviv, Melnitsa, Mikulintsy,

Re: French family of Belorussian(?) origin -- Help with Yiddish translation #belarus

edward steiner <nedsteiner@...>
 

This message (see link below), which I believe is in
Yiddish, was written on the back of a picture of my
g-g-grandparents Moshe and Sarah (LERAVISKY) VOLINSKI.
The picture gives an address in Paris and, my guess,
was taken ca. 1910.

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=8990

I believe that one or both of my g-g-grandparents
were >from Minsk, maybe Borisov. (Supposed relatives,
the LACOV, were >from that region).

Their daughter Eliena/Helene, my g-grandmother, was
born in Paris in 1892. She later immigrated to the
U.S. where she married my ggrandfather Louis GOLDBERG
(in 1911).

I would greatly appreciate any assistance in
translating this message, and in learning more about
these families.

This message (see link below), which I believe is in
Yiddish, was written on the back of a picture of my
g-g-grandparents Moshe and Sarah (LERAVISKY) VOLINSKI.
The picture gives an address in Paris and, my guess,
was taken ca. 1910.

I believe that one or both of my g-g-grandparents
were >from Minsk, maybe Borisov. (Supposed relatives,
the LACOV, were >from that region).

Their daughter Eliena/Helene, my g-grandmother, was
born in Paris in 1892. She later immigrated to the
U.S. where she married my ggrandfather Louis GOLDBERG
(in 1911).

I would greatly appreciate any assistance in
translating this message, and in learning more about
these families.

Please reply privately.

Prague trip - advice #austria-czech

DAGAG123@...
 

We are planning a family trip to Prague in mid-June. I've been going through
the archives but would still appreciate advice and recommendations by
AustriaCzech SIG members who have already done the trip. We're going to have
limited time and plan to visit the Jewish Museum, the synagogues, and hopefully
visit Metylovice, where my husband's gf was born. Would appreciate advice on
hotels/flats, restaurants and highlights of your trip(s) and guides.
Have also e-mailed the museum directly but have not heard back.
Please respond directly to me.
Thank you and Happy Hanukkah,
