Dear All

I have documentation stating that people are from
Weksna, Meksna and Smeksna, Kovno.

Would this equate to Sveskna?

Many thanks

Ernst GOETZ - Montevideo, Uruguay #germany

A & B Algaze <algaze@...>
 

I have been researching my Paternal Grandmother's GOETZ family and have most
of the members identified. They were born in Culmsee, Kries Thorn, West
Prussia (now Chelmza, Poland) and most of them moved to Berlin. Two of them
died before 1938 and three were sent to concentration camps. I also found a
notice in the February 10, 1950 issue of the "Aufbau" asking about four of
them and various of their spouses. The notice was signed by Ernest GOETZ,
Sucre 1126, Montevideo, Uruguay. Since he has all the names correct, I am
sure that he is somehow related to the family. I would like to learn more
about him. Does anyone know anything about a GOETZ family in Uruguay? Can
anyone give me any ideas about doing research in Uruguay? Thank you.

At least two places that could be identified as "Luckovecz", WAS: Familiant Book - Region Klatovy - Dolni Lukavice - Eckstein #austria-czech

161bayview@...
 

Celia Male said: There are at least two places that could be
identified as "Luckovecz" in Bohemia and they are not in the same
area. see Vol II - Gut Luckawetz {Lukavez} p 72.
What proof have we that Leopold was born in Dolni Lukavice and not one
of the others?

I have no proof that Leopold was born in Dolni Lukavice, that is why I
was asking to see if anybody had access to the pages of the Familien
book for Dolni Lukavice.

I had looked in the 1793 census for the other Luckovecz, Gut
Luckawetz (Lukavec), Caslov, Bohemia, and there were no
Eckstein/Eksteins there. Nor were there any Eckstein/Eksteins or
Leopolds anywhere else in Caslavsky in 1793.

I also looked at the 1783 census (ten years before the 1793 census)
for Caslovsky, and there were no Eckstein/Eksteins anywhere in
Cavlovsky at that time either. (Unfortunately I cannot find a 1783
census for Unter Lukawitz, Klatousky kraj (Dolni Lukavice, Klatov).)
My Leopold was born in 1780 or 1784 in Luckovecz, so I would have
believed that if he was >from Gut Luckawetz (Lukavec), Caslov, some
Ecksteins would be there in one or the other of those censuses. So, I
have negative evidence that Leopold or any Eckstein was born in this
other Luckovecz based on either of those two censuses.

On the other hand, naming patterns may indicate a relationship between
the Dolni Lukavice (Klatov) Eckstein family and the Uny Eckstein
family.

Emanuel Veisz/Weis was born in Uny 11 February 1837, son of Kati Echstein.
Abraham Echstein was born in Uny 3 March 1838, son of Leopold Echstein
(the younger)
Franciska Weisz was born in Uny 22 March 1832, daughter of Kati Echstein.

The 1793 Dolni Lukavice census includes two Ekstein households:
Emanuel Ekstein, age 35, born Unter Lukawitz, and his son Abraham,
erstgeborner, age 3,
and,
Franziska, age 20, wife of David Ekstein, 25, erstgeborner, born Unter Luka=
witz.

It is not unreasonable to assume that the Uny Ecksteins were honoring
recent passings of Emanuel, Abraham and Franziska >from Dolni Lukavice.
(Leopold (the older)'s death in 15 February 1849 would seem to be
similarly honored by the birth of the next son (after that date) of
Leopold Ekstein, son of Simon, in June 1851 in Uny.)

These are the reasons I believe that Leopold was born in Dolni
Lukavice and not one of the others.

Maria

Leopold ECKSTEIN and his presumed daughter's birthdates, WAS: Familiant Book - Region Klatovy - Dolni Lukavice - Eckstein #austria-czech

161bayview@...
 

Celia Male said: There is something wrong with the dates. Leopold
ECKSTEIN was born betwen 1780 and 1784 and his daughter was born in
1793? Once we get that straight, perhaps we can get further.


In the 1848 Census in Uny, Leopold is reported as 68 years old. In
the Jewish records for Uny, Leopold died there 15 February 1849 at age
65. Subtraction >from these two records would calculate birth years of
about 1780 or 1784. (Similarly, his wife, Mari POLAK, was reported as
56 in the 1848 census, and 64 when she died 23 May 1858, which would
calculate to birth years of about 1792 or 1794, indicating a similar
set of age perceptions at those points.)

The 1848 Census in Uny contains four Eckstein households:

ECKSTEIN, Leopold 68 Luckovecz Bohemia (est. born 1780)
POLAK, Mari 56 wife Uny Hungary

VEISZ, Farkas 53 husband Tinye Hungary
ECHSTEIN, Kara? 44 wife Uny Hungary (est. born 1804)
VEISZ, Simon 23 son Uny Hungary
VEISZ, Julianna 18 daughter Uny Hungary
VEISZ, Franciska 16 daughter Uny Hungary
VEISZ, Markus 14 son Uny Hungary
VEISZ, Emanuel 12 son Uny Hungary
VEISZ, Abraham 9 son Uny Hungary
VEISZ, Magdal? 6 Uny Hungary
VEISZ, Katalin 4 daughter Uny Hungary

ECHSTEIN, Leopold 40 husband Uny Hungary (est. born 1808)
ABELES?, Terezia 31 wife Szerdahely Hungary
ECKSTEIN, Minzi 11 daughter Uny Hungary
ECKSTEIN, Abraham 10 son Uny Hungary
ECKSTEIN, Eszter 8 daughter Uny Hungary
ECKSTEIN, Moricz 6 son Uny Hungary
ECKSTEIN, Bernad 4 son Uny Hungary
ECKSTEIN, Maria 2 daughter

ECKSTEIN, Simon 31 Uny Hungary (est. born 1817)
STEINER, Mimi 24 wife Zsamber?/Zsember Hungary =09
ECKSTEIN, Markus 1 son Uny Hungary


Uny is also one of the few places where records >from the 1857 census
still exist, and >from that census, we also find Kati/Kara/Catarina:

WEIS Wolf birth year 17(7?)9 kereskedo (Wolf Farkas)
ECKSTEIN Catarina birth year 1793
and children

from these two records, you get a birth date for the absolutely the
same person of 1793 or 1804.

Note that with the contemporaneous ages reported in the 1848 census,
Leopold, age 68, is about 24 years older than Kara, age 44, so the
ages reported in the earlier census are a much better fit for a
father-daughter relationship.

I used the 1793 date in my first posting as an explanation for not
finding Leopold in Lukawitz in 1793 - if Kati/Kara/Catarina was born
in Uny later, say 1804, then Leopold would certainly be old enough,
and it puts him in Uny by that date, but that is not a proper
explanation for not finding Leopold in 1793 in Bohemia.

Kati/Kara/Catarina Vaisz/Weisz/Weis (Eckstein/Ekstein) moves later
from Uny to Nagy Sap, where she died 24 February 1883, and was buried
26 February 1883 in Esztergom. We visited the cemetery there last
fall.

The Jewish birth records >from Uny don't exist prior to 1822, so I
can't be sure of the parents of Kara, Leopold (the younger), and
Simon. I assume that Leopold (the older) is either the father or
uncle of Kati/Kara/Catarina and her presumed brothers, but in any
case, Leopold (the older) takes us back to Luckovecz Bohemia, where
my search continues.

Thanks to all,
Maria

KUSSY/KUSSI family - mistranscribed in 1793 Jewish census of Bohemia #austria-czech

celiamale@...
 

I was delighted to meet Susan Lubow >from NJ recently in London.
What do two Austrla-Czech genners, who have never met, do when they meet?
Answer: well that's simple - spend three hours pouring over the 1793
census of Bohemia with a sprinkling of 1783 thrown in.

And when they finally solve the problem, they have a cup of tea.

Susan has many genealogy pages on the www - see especially:
http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/l/u/b/Susan-L-Lubow/GENE12-0001.html

and go to the home page for an introduction.

The problem: How was it possible that this old-established Bohemian
KUSSY/KUSSI family could not be found in the census index?

Well, the answer is simple if you know it - go to the place Nathan KUSSY
was born and is buried and see what you find there.

Vol IV p 173 - Dorf Kraschowitz {Krasovice} - Pilsner Kreis
in the Herrschaft of Rabenstein - there you will find Mojses FUSSY
mistranscribed - a Tabaktrafikant and Schnittwarenhandler mit Vieh with a
wife Sara - a first born Nathann [sic] - second-born Berl and two
daughters, Rachel and Judit - Gehoren in Schutz: Rabenstein.

So Nathan must have been born well before 1793 and fits well onto Susan's family tree.

Transcription errors are harder to spot when the first letter has changed.
This one has not made it to the erratum pages in Vol VI/2. You will find a
KINDT there, who really should be RINDT - and he was, as you might have
guessed, a butcher. Jakob RINDT - Radenin - Tabor Kreis Vol III p. 383.

RINDT, KUSSY and DEUTSCHMANN are unique Jewish family namse in the 1793
census of Bohemia. I must try and dig out some more.

This one has not made it to the erratum pages in Vol VI/2. You will find a
KINDT there, who really should be RINDT - and he was, as you might have
guessed, a butcher. Jakob RINDT - Radenin - Tabor Kreis Vol III p. 383.

RINDT, KUSSY and DEUTSCHMANN are unique Jewish family namse in the 1793
census of Bohemia. I must try and dig out some more.
