Scandinavia SIG #Scandinavia Looking for Jacob KASKEL jr. #scandinavia

Jan Bousse <janbousse@...>
 

Dear Friends,

I have recently subscribed to this SIG, I am a member of various other
groups and therefore familiar with the proceedings.

I want to request your help in understanding the details of the family trees
that are annexed to the "Forgotten Fragments of the History of the Fraenkel
Family". I have a copy of the sheets concerning the Nathan Spanier's
descendants. The name I am especially interested in is "Jac. Dresden (=
Kaskel)". Can you help me get on the right track to request that help? The
details of this book have been given via this group, since the Fraenkel
family went to live in Denmark. I hope therefore that there are some experts
on this matter in the Scandinavian group. I have quite a bit of data on the
Kaskel family in Dresden, this Jacob jr. I suspect is the son of Jacob
KASKEL, the banker in Dresden in the 18th century. What I need is more
information on when and where he died; his activities in London, where he is
listed as a member of a masonic lodge in 1787, and so on.

Albert LEVY and Gertrude HENNIG / Paddington 1901 #unitedkingdom

Levy, Justin <Justin.Levy@...>
 

Hello Folks,

Albert LEVY (b. 9 July 1864 in Bad Segeberg, Germany) was the youngest son
of Moses David Levy and Hannchen Heckscher. He emigrated to London in the
mid to late 1880s and was recorded in the 1891 census as a cigar merchant
boarding at 66 Sutherland Avenue.

In March 1900 in Paddington, he married Gertrude HENNIG (b. 1871/72 in
Berlin, Germany), the daughter of the diamond broker Isidore HENNIG and his
wife, Ernestine.

A year later, the married couple were recorded with their month-old
daughter, Hilda LEVY (as well as two servants and a nurse) at 12 Randolph
Crescent, Paddington, which is round the corner >from Sutherland Avenue where
Gertrude's parents were residing at no. 142.

Most excitingly, Albert was the first cousin of my great-grandfather, Henry
LEVY, who returned to London in 1901 after nearly 20 years in South Africa
to take up residence at 152 Sutherland Avenue. Henry was the younger brother
of Paul LEVY mentioned in my earlier posting.

Having traced my German ancestry back to the early 17th century, I would
very much like to make some progress forward along the English lines.

Any help would be most gratefully received.

Regards,

Justin Levy
(Dublin, Ireland)

Josveniai and Keidan records #lithuania

Sara Crystal <scrapbasket@...>
 

dear friends, I am wondering if the LDS records of Josveniai and
Keidan are the same as those translated in the ALD, or are they
additional, if not, then who might be available to translate since I
speak no hebrew or russian?

I am excited about these records since they may be my missing link for
my great-great grandparents. I have been unable to find the name of a
village for my grandmother imm 1891, Jennie RABINOWITZ/RABINOWITSCH
CRYSTAL, with her mother SIMA/GUSSIE/SADIE/SIMNER AMNH/SARA?
FREEMAN/FRUMAN/FRIEDMAN RABINOWITZ, to her husband imm 1887 Harris
RABINOWITZ (Haresh/Hersh), >from somewhere in Lithuania. Sima died in
childbirth in 1903, Newark, NJ. Sima's parents were Nota Friedman and
Rachel. In JOSVENIAI, there is a NOTEL FRIDMAN, married to Rase, with
daughter Sore and Chaya, 1874. All other Note Fridmans were too young
so I hope this is them. Please contact me if this rings any bells or
you can clarify.

Paul Levy's grandchildren / Paddington 1930s #unitedkingdom

Levy, Justin <Justin.Levy@...>
 

Hello Folks,

Paul LEVY was born in Bad Segeberg, German, on 7 July 1851. He emigrated to
England in the late 1870s and married Fannie GRUENEBAUM on 22 Dec 1880 in
Paddington London.

Paul died on 26 Jan 1934 in Kingsdown near Deal in Kent and was buried in
Willesden Cemetery. In his will he makes bequests to the following family
members:

His son, Matthias Paul Martin LEVY (b. 1881 in London, UK)
Alice, the widow of his late son Isidore Paul LEVY (b. 1883 in London, UK)
His son, Reuben Paul LEVY (b. 1888 in London, UK) and his wife Peggy
His son, Ralph Paul LEVY (b. 1889 in London, UK) and his children: Paul LEVY
and Suzanne LEVY
His son, Joseph Martin LEVY (b. 1893 in London, UK) and his son, Derrick
LEVY

It is more than likely that the three grandchildren mentioned above are
alive today. Does anybody out there recognise the names?

Regards,

Justin Levy

Pinkas ha-Kehilot Romania index available #general

Robert Sherins <rsherins@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Shalom Bronstein has published on the Jewishgen Yizkor Book Project the
English translation index to the Pinkas ha-Kehilot Romanyah, which is
Volume 18. The English title means, "Encyclopedia of the Jewish
Communities of Romania." This great work was first published by Yad
Vashem in Jerusalem in 1969. The work consists of a two-volume set:
Volume I for the towns in Moldavia; Volume II for the towns in
Transylvania.

The first English translation of a chapter to appear on the Yizkor Book
Project was devoted to the chapter about the history of the Jewish
community of Birlad, published by Toby Sanchez.

I have been able to locate a complete copy of the Pinkas ha-Kehilot
Romanyah, Volume 18, at the UCLA Charles Young Graduate Research
Library, which includes three parts: General History of Romania's Jewish
Communities, Volume I - Moldavia, and Volume II - Transylvania. The
whole work is about 600 pages and was written in Hebrew. David Hirsch
is the Bibliographer of the Jewish and Middle Eastern Studies section of
the Research Library and can be contacted by e-mail at
<dhirsch@...>.

Eleven chapters of the texts >from the towns have been photocopied and
digitized to permit the arrangements for transmission of the documents
for English translations. I plan to publish the texts of the following
chapters >from this great work on the Jewishgen, Yizkor Book Project
website in the very near future. The Moldavian town chapters include:
Pungesti, Negresti, Vaslui, Husi, Iasi, Harlau/Hirlau, Galati, Botosani,
Podul Iloaiei/Podu Iloaiei, Roman, and Frumusica.

This information has been forwarded to the Jewishgen Discussion Group
digest, ROM-SIG digest, Ukraine SIG digest, in order to alert other
members about the availability of the Pinkas ha-Kehilot Romania index at
the following URL: http://www2.jewishgen.org/yizkor/translations.html.
However, all of the other volumes of the Yizkor books and Pinkas books
are available in many libraries and archives throughout the U.S. and
world wide. This is a grand opportunity to obtain significant
information about other towns that had Jewish communities and to arrange
for the publication of the English translations. Joyce Field is the
project director of the Yizkor Book Project. I urge you all to invest
your energies into this very worthy project and donate your translated
works for the benefit of all genealogical researchers. Get other members
of your families to join in the project. Joyce Field can be contacted
for publishing details.

Good luck to all,

Renate and Alisa COHN sisters Berlin-Israel #germany

Jim Bennett <bennett@...>
 

I'm searching for Renate and Alisa COHN--Renate born in 1930 in Berlin
and Alisa born in 1938 in Haifa, daughters of Conrad COHN and Frida geb.
Ebstein. They are also descendants of the SPIRO Rabbinical family of
Posen Province, and thus we are "cousins".

The late Siegfried Ascher of Haifa, who in the 1930's-1950's headed the
"Society for Family Research in Eretz Israel" produced a five-generation
ancestor chart for these sisters. His large collection of trees and
charts in now part of the Brilling Collection at the Jewish Museum of
Frankfurt a/M.

The COHN sisters are most likely still in Israel.
Their grandparents, Benjamin and Johanna COHN left Berlin and reached
Capetown, SA in the 1930's.
