Cohen, Levi, Yisroel #general

Stew Driller <sdriller@...>
 

Is there an accepted term for the Cohen, Levi, Yisroel
groups? I've tried 'class', 'tribe', 'caste', 'clan', etc.,
but they all sound wrong.

Also, since being a Jew is transmitted through the mother, is
the son of a Jewish mother and non-Jewish father considered a
Jew, and if so, which of the 'categories' does he belong to.
Does he automatically become a Yisroel or is it transmitted
from his mother's father?

KALKOPF - Zarki, Sosnowiec, Poland/LENCZNER - Szczekociny, Poland #general

Desrx <desrx@...>
 

My great grandmother was Liba (Lenczner) LIEBERMANN KALKOPF FRYMORGEN
(1878 - 1941). She had at least seven children >from three different
marriages. I was aware that at least three of Liba's siblings (David, Rose
and Herman/Chaim) had imigrated to the US as well as three of her children
(Bertha, Esther - my grandmother, and Sylvia). Now a new report indicates
that her son, Abram Kalkopf (b. abt 1906) also imigrated to the US, but I
have no report of these >from the INS records I have received (which only
took some ten years to acquire >from US/INS). Liba was granted permanent
residence status as a parent of a US citizen. However she illegally left
the US and then illegally returned in 1932. So the records provides some
details of her "American" relatives (the issue of concern being her
ability to support herself in the US) and Abram is not mentioned. (In the
official interviews with Liba there are at least three people involved, so
no doubt a great deal lost in the translations.)

Supposedly, Liba had at least seven children (mostly daughter). Being a
typical American, English is my only language. I do not know Hebrew/Yiddish
or Polish. I had previously collected eight names and now have been given
two additional names:

Bruch/Bertha/Birde (Liebermann) Blumenfeld (1901-1961) d/o Jacob Liebermann
Esther (Kalkopf) McTeer (1904-1968) d/o Aaron Irvin Kalkopf (d. abt 1925)
Abram Kalkopf (b. abt 1906)
Chambeja Kalkopf (b. abt 1910)
Sotile Kalkopf (b. abt 1913)
Cutel Kalkopf (b. abt 1914)
Sura/Sara Kalkopf
Sylvia Zissel Freemorgen (d. 1997), d/o Moishe Frymorgen

Today, two more names were added: Berl(M/F?) and Judy as children of Aaron
Kalkopf. International Tracing Service has a record of a Berl Kalkopf, b.
1921 "29.6.48 emigr. nach Israel per Auto". I presume this means he
reported drove to Israel? (There is another card with the same entries for
a Dawid Kalkopf b. 1919.)

The new information comes second hand >from a personal source in Europe.
This gives my great grandfather Aaron Kalkopf's parents as Avrom/Abrahm and
Esther Kalkopf of Zarki. The names I have for Liba Lenczner's parents are
Litmana Isaac Lenczner and Gitli Gettle Rywy of Szczekociny. I do believe I
have a possible lead on Liba's brother, Herman, death record (thanks to the
recent post of the Calif D/C url). If the same person would be Herman
LENTZNER 10 May 1886 - 13 Dec 1952, POD: Los Angeles. Hopefully I will be
able to obtain the record shortly.

I would of course appreciate hearing >from anyone with any further knowledge.

Searching: SUGARMAN "Willner" --> London #general

Jeff Sugarman <sugarjf@...>
 

I would be very interested to see if I could get some help on locating the
family of my grandfather, Lew SUGARMAN (b. ~1892 in London), who moved to
America >from London in 1912.

My grandfather's parents were Joseph SUGARMAN and Miriam LEVINE (she may
have used "Mary"). >from a birthplace listed on a US census sheet of one of
Lew's sisters who moved to the US, it appears that the family moved to
London shortly after her birth in 1889 >from "Willner (Russia)", which I
imagine may be Vilna (Vilnius). Whether this is the city of Vilna or the
region I don't know.

We know of several siblings of my grandfather.
Sarah SUGARMAN (b. 1889 in "Willner") moved to NY in around 1907
and married Philip NOZICK.
Dora SUGARMAN (b. 1894 in London) moved to NY in 1924 and married Mr.
MEARNS.
Minnie SUGARMAN (b. 1899? in London).
Another Brother who died in WWI in Egypt.
Abe SUGARMAN, who married Leah, and had a least two children, Manny and
Renee, born in the 1920's.

I would be very happy to find information (or suggestions for finding)
about Minnie, Manny (I imagine this is a nickname, possibly for
Emmanuel?) and Renee and their families.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Jewish Birth, Death & Marriage Records - Vienna, Austria #general

Joyce Eastman <wldwoman@...>
 

Since I have had numerous requests regarding my posting today, I will
explain below how to get to the website to obtain Jewish Birth, Death &
Marriage Records >from Vienna, Austria archives

The actual website is www.jewishgen.org/BohMor/ausguide.htm.
However, when I tried to type in this link it did not work.
I had to go to the JewishGen website, then to the link shown for
SIGs (special interest groups). After clicking on that, I chose the
Bohemia-Moravia SIG. This will take you to the BohMor SIG main page.
If you see "Beginner's Guide to Austrian-Jewish Genealogy" you are in
the right place. Scroll down the page to the "jewish birth, death &
marriage records". Click on this and it will bring you to a page with
various headings. Choose the one pertinent to you and either write to
the mailing address or e-mail address shown below the designation
that fits your needs. I got my answer regarding deaths overnight.

Good luck.

Did names change for some reason or another.
In 1799, Zabludow would have been in New East Prussia, as part
of the Bialystok area. The Prussians acquired this area in the
Third partition of Poland in 1795, and lost it to the Russians
with the Treaty of Tilsit in 1807.

The Prussians required Jews to acquire permanent surnames in
New East Prussia in April 1797. However, many Jews ignored
this law, and did not assume permanent surnames.

When the Russians took over the area, they did not initially
require Jews to have surnames, so when they later did require
Jews to take permanent surnames, many Jews assumed different
surnames than they had under the Prussians.

It is most probable that the "surnames" you see in this list
are not genuine surnames -- but are simply patronymics, the
convention of the time -- the father's given name plus the
Polish patronymic suffix "-wicz", e.g. Abramowicz, Herszkowicz,
Lejbowicz, Mosziewicz, etc.

I'm having difficulty identifying "Constantin guberniya", the
