Kiddush goblet inscription needs translating from Hebrew to English please #general

Sally Goodman <sbgoody@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I have posted a copy of an inscription engraved on a magnificent silver
Kiddush goblet with a lid that has been in our family for more than 100
years. I hope someone will be able to translate it for me as the goblet has
great meaning to my family and me.

This goblet was given to me recently by my 96-year-old cousin who asked me
to be its "keeper" until such time I determine the right person in my family
who will treasure it as much as he has. He selected me >from all the family
because he knew how much it would mean to me and he felt he could trust me
to pass it on.

His (our) gggrandfather (supposedly he was a great Rabbi in Kittsee,
Austria) passed it to our ggrandfather who passed it to it to my cousin's
grandfather who gave it to his father who gave it to him on his 25th
birthday in 1932. I am the first woman to be its "keeper." I am honored
and humbled.

Perhaps the translation will give us clues about our gggf - possibly his
name, the date, how old the goblet is and maybe other clues so I can share
them with my cousin (and anyone else who will listen to this wonderful
story).

I would greatly appreciate any help in translating the document I have
posted on ViewMate #8055. The address is:

Kibbutz Ma'aleh Ha'Chamisha #general

LJTRS@...
 

Hello,

I recently found a long lost cousin, Ruth Kreines Rubinsohn Sommerfeld, who
lives in England. She was transported to England in 1939 as an eleven year
old through the Kindertransport in WWII. Her parents were murdered by the
Nazis. Our family was >from Zelva which was considered part of Lithuania
(although my grandfather always said Poland) and now it is part of Belarus.
We are related through the KREINES and PERELMUTER families in Zelva. Ruth
filled me in a bit about her family story and told me we have a common cousin
that she knows of living in Israel. All we know is that her name is Rachel
and she lives in Kibbutz Ma'aleh Ha'Chamisha. This Rachel would be related to
us through the KREINES family. Does anybody want to help me find this woman?
I know I haven't given you much to go on but I would appreciate anyone's
help! Hopefully there aren't too many Rachels on this kibbutz!

Thank you in advance.

Citizenship after WWI #galicia

Lancy
 

A while ago I asked about the reasons for most Galitzianers to opt for
Polish rather than Austrian citizenship after WWI.

First of all, I would like to thank all members of this group who
participated in the discussion and who volunteered their thoughts both
within this forum and to me privately.

I read and reread the answers to my query. My impression is that, whether
the result of learning, family lore or speculation, the answer lies in the
combination of all of them.

If Yiddish readers within this group come across periodicals of the time
that may throw further light on the question, please share the knowledge.

Thank you all!!

Hofstadter - Lisko (Galicia) #galicia

Elena Aschkenasi <eraschkenasi@...>
 

Dear Genealogy Seekers,

I am searching for information about my mother's
family >from Lisko, Poland. I can't find Lisko in
Poland. My mother's name was Elka Hofstadter; she was
born in Lisko on March 20, 1907. Her father was Natan,
her mother (to the best of my knowledge) Rosa
Buchenbaum. Her siblings'names were Alter, Elias,
Berta, Regina and Sara. Alter, his wife and children,
were killed in Lisko during a progrom. The other
siblings all went to Uruguay at various times.
Where can I search for information about my mother's
family and ancestry?
How can I obtain her birth certificate? School
diploma? My mother mentioned Przemysl in relation to
schooling. I know that she finished secondary school
in Poland before leaving to join her brother in
Uruguay in the late 1920's.
I remember my mother telling that her family lived on
a piece of land that belonged to a count. What were
the economic and social implications of such an
arrangement?

Where is best to start the search, and what is the
most useful search sequence?

Please respond privately to eraschkenasi@yahoo.com.
Thank you!

Re: Los Angeles death records #general

Using the Stephen P. Morse search engine Finding Birthdays and Related
Persons in One Step, enter the name Joseph COHN, Los Angeles CA, birth
year 1904. Although you noted he was deceased, his death was recent
enough so that he is still listed in this resource (as if he were still
alive) as "age 102".. You will find that his birthday is the same as
the one you have given. You can then search each of the people named
as related to obtain their birthdays. Once that is done, you can use
the Stephen P. Morse search engine Birthdays and Addresses to locate an
address and phone for a living relative, presumably his son (Alan
Gerald COHN) with (presumably) his son's wife (Judith Gloria COHN).

Re: Kraindjla=Tova ? #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz
 

Kreindl means crown. Tova is an Israel innovation for the name Gitl. It is
sometimes confused with the Yiddish name Toba meaning dove, often changed to
Yaffa Or Tova. It is possible that a woman named Kreindl could be Kreindl
Gitl and have used the Hebrew translation for Gitl=Tova. The translation of
Kreindl is Atara.

Geneolgy and Jewish achievements in flight., RUMPLER #general

Nathan Sturman
 

Celia Male supplied us with several fascinating biographical
links to Jewish pioneers in the aviation field; a lot of
interest to me and I'm sure to their Jewish descendants as well.
Vienna certainly was a focal point. It is really interesting how
Jewish geneological and aeronautical pioneering links run along
such interesting lines, and Celia's research has indeed brought
them together. On the automotive biography website that Celia
suppied a link to, I found that the pioneer aircraft designer/
manufacturer Edmund RUMPLER, originator of the famed birdlike
"Taube" German-Austro/Hungarian scouting plane of 1914 and the
first years of WW I, was Jewish as well. He also manufactured
other famous aircraft used by the Central Powers throughout
that war. After WWI he made and marketed a unique and famous
motor car, then returned to aviation but was arrested by the
Nazis and died in 1940, according to that bio at
http://www.voitures-d-ingenieurs.com/biography.htm#rumpler

Articles by Anatolji Chayesh #general

Chaim freedman
 

LitvakSIG recently added to its site another article by Anatolji Chayesh
(St. Petersburg) about the expulsion of Jews >from Lithuania by the Russians
during the First World War. I found these articles particularly useful as
they confirmed oral history provided by my late grandmother about the deaths
of both her grandfathers during this action. I would like to suggest to
LitvakSIG, other SIGS and Jewishgen that it is very important to translate
from Russian other articles written by Dr. Chayesh and other researchers in
the former Soviet republics. Much research is being carried out there and
published in Russian on a number of Web sites. Whilst on-line translation
tools can help in getting the gist of such articles, it is well worth the
various SIGs making the effort to search for such sites and translate
relevant material.
