Cemeteries in Hessen / Hesse #germany

John Paul Lowens <jplowens@...>
 

Kitty Munson's post suggesting that Susan Edel visit the
IAJGS Cemetery database prompted me to do some exploring at the
Germany section there.

At: http://www.jewishgen.org/cemetery/w-europe/gerbystate.html

I found a very useful resource, especially for those interested in
Hesse / Hessen.

The list of Jewish Cemeteries in this land (state) is v e r y
complete. If a town does not have its own Jewish cemetery,
this list still includes the town name with the name of the
town with local the Jewish cemetery following (in parentheses).

NOTE: niether Lande "HESSEN" nor "BADEN-WUERTTEMBERG" on this
page appears in bold type. Find "Hessen" just under "Hamburg"
and "Baden-Wuerttemberg" just under "Berlin".

My visit to the Germany section of the IAJGS Cemetery Database made
me realize how much work Kitty and her fellow volunteers have done.
If you've not visited the site recently it's worth a look.

Dear Betsy:

The TAL, TALL or THAL family came >from both Latvia and Lithuania and are
related to me. You will find all three spellings in the records of the
National Archives of Latvia and Lithuania and also South Africa and
Zimbabwe.

The family historian is Rabbi Lennard Thal of New York and, if you are
interested, I can provide his e-mail address to you privately. He has been
in contact with the South African branches of the family and has met with
them.

He will be able to tell you definitively if your relative was part of the
family.

All the best,
Ann Rabinowitz

Where is Goyo Graduo #general

Caryl Simon-Katler <csimon@...>
 

I'm wondering where Goyo Graduo or Goyo de Graduo might be located. It
is listed as the town of origin on the passenger list of a great-uncle,
whom I know came >from Nowy Dwor, Mazowiecki, Poland. Yet, he lists this
as his birthplace and also claims he had a brother there. It's a typed
manifest, so I know I'm not misreading the handwriting. The Shtetl
Finder yielded nothing. My only other thought is that it's a street or
district in Warsaw, as I believe his brother lived there at this time
(1920-1) Does anyone have an idea?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: ships documents for first class passengers #general

Sally Bruckheimer
 

Cabin classes (those not in steerage) were on
passenger lists, they just got off the ship at the
dock without having to go through any immigration
processing (I am talking about the time before
restricted immigration). Mrs. Astor, returning >from a
shopping trip in Europe, (and my gr grandmother)just
got off the ship after the cruise.

Anyone who could afford a cabin was presumed able to
support him/herself. That is why you hear occasional
stories about some person, who was rejected because of
a medical condition and returned to Europe, coming
over later, second class, after the family had earned
enough money to afford a cabin ticket for the
sick/disabled person.

VIEWMATE: 1903 Zionist Medallion given to Russian Soldier #general

Jeffrey M.Dreifuss <jsgran@...>
 

In 1902 my wife's grandfather was conscripted into the Russian Army for
service in Manchuria. According to the story, his mother never
expected to see him again and gave him a medallion, that appears to
have a Zionist theme. We are unable to read the inscriptions which
appear to be in Hebrew and Yiddish. I have placed copies of both sides
of (a replica of) the medallion on Viewmate as files VM3034 and VM3035.

We would appreciate help with the translation of the medallion, and
more importantly, information about the nature of the medallion itself.
If anyone has any knowledge of the history or purpose of the medallion
this would be most appreciated by the family.

Please respond privately.

Sheva Kehilos #rabbinic

Bernard Weill
 

Dear colleagues,

I am interested in the names of the Sheva (seven) Kehilos. Some
further questions:

1) Were these Oberlander communitites following the minhagim of the
Chasam Sofer?

2) Are these seven communities gegraphically dispersed or adjacent
communities?

3) What is the significance of these communities that they were
grouped together and called Sheva Kehilos?

4) Where in modern day Hungary are they located?

Thank you.

Inverted Names #general

Caryl Simon-Katler <csimon@...>
 

I just wanted to thank the person who suggested switching first and last
names, when looking people up on the EIDB database. Using that method I
was able to find a passenger list, which I'd been trying to locate for
years. What a great suggestion.

Where is "Bopolia?" #general

cromrider@juno.com <cromrider@...>
 

Joanne--I suggest that Bopolia just may be a corruption of the gubernia
*Podolia*. When I began my genealogical quest, I was told that my
grandmother came >from "Gerbenia Gedalia". It didn't take me long to find
out that the town she came >from was in the gubernia of Podolia. Many
years of repeating what was heard was eventually corrupted. Remember the
old game of "Telephone"?

Poldolia is very close to the area you are asking about.

ROEMISCHER/ROIMISCHER #romania

Ines Römischer <ines@...>
 

My family name is ROEMISCHER (German), or ROIMISCHER (Yiddish) which means
from Rom (fin Roim in Yiddish) ... My grandparents and parents were born in
Bessarabia. I have no idea what was before, since no one is alive to ask.

You wrote: "... Archeological evidence >from the 2nd to 4th century AD
points to the presence in the Dacian province of the Jewish people brought
in by the Imperial Roman legions, one of which came >from Judaea. ..."

How do I connect this information to my family name?
Where do I start to search?
Does anyone has an idea? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
