Personal name Hanoch or Henoch in Bavarian Schwaben #general

Jim Bennett
 

My oldest confirmed ancestor in Ichenhausen, Schwaben was Henoch ben
Baruch Bissinger [1747-1816] >from researching his ancestors for many years
I now believe that Henoch was the great grandson of Rabbi Hanoch/Henoch
Zundel Pfersee, who was a rabbi in Gunzenhausen and Schnatitach, and
himself the descendant of three generations of rabbis in Poland and Germany.
*but*, so far I cannot prove this hypothesis--it's based on circumstantial
evidence, but lacks certain documentary confirmation.

I need the help of expert genealogists now living in the Schwaben region,
and the help of fellow genealogist who descend >from the families I
mentioned.
My ancestor, Henoch ben Baruch had hundreds of descendants--among them in
every generation oodles of boys named Henoch. By mid-19th century
Many of them used the civil name Heinrich.

If anyone can offer me advice, please write to me.

clarification on query on Polish law re children of unmarried parents #general

Helen Gardner
 

Hi all.

I have received several messages suggesting that the parents had
actually had a religious ceremony some time previously and were
therefore married in Jewish law - or alternatively that the
children were >from the first marriage.

Neither of these is the case. In the section of the marriage
record which I should have included it is quite clear that the
religious marriage was performed the day before the civil record,
on 26 Oct 1862.

Snip
It came to pass in Warsaw on the twenty-seventh day of October in
the year of one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two at the hour
of half past eight in the morning. Before me, a Civil Registrar
for Non-Christian Confession of District Four, personally appeared
orthodox Jew Jakob Majer Jeszuron, a lower rabbi ...
snip
and declared before us that the religious matrimony had been
entered into in front of him on the twenty-sixth day of October of
the current year by Szlama Ajgengold, the bachelor, and the widow
Ruchla Laj Rakower, following proclamation of banns in this
district, that is to say, on the thirteenth, the twentieth and the
twenty-seventh day of September of the current year by means of
posting them on the office door
snip

The first husband died in 1855, while the wife was pregnant with
their 2nd child, a daughter, whose father is recorded as deceased
on her birth record. She is not mentioned in the marriage, nor in
any other record I can find.

As mentioned in my previous email, the bride and groom recognise
both daughters (born 1861 and 1862) as their own children, which
is the grounds for giving them civil rights.

For anyone who is interested, I have received a reply >from Greg
Gembala as follows:

It wasn't easy, but I was able to find it in one of the digital
libraries. Attached find the scan of this particular paragraph
on page 128. It refers generally to all children born out of
wedlock, as you describe it, that they become legitimate should
their parents marry at a later date, if they were declared prior
to that as legitimate or latest at the moment of the parent's
wedding.

France and US Agree to Compensate Holocaust survivors and Family Members Deported by SNCF During Nazi Occupation #france

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The French and United States announced a $60 million fund to compensate
holocaust survivors and family members for those deported by France's state
rail company, SNCF during the Nazi occupation. The fund will be financed by
the French government and managed by the United States. According to the
Washington Post, the United States is waiving its administrative fee for
administration. It will be about $100,000 for each survivor and tens of
thousands for spouses of those who died in the camps or since World War ll.
Amounts for heirs of camp survivors who have since died are to be determined
on the basis of the number of years those survivors lived after their
liberation. Eligible claimants can choose annuities rather than lump sums.

French legislators still have to approve the agreement.

The agreement includes the US government to work to end lawsuits and other
compensation in US Courts against SNCF. SNCF is bidding for high-rail and
other contracts in the US-which can be very lucrative for SNCF. One such
contract could be worth $6 billion for light rail in Maryland. State
legislators in a number of states have tried to punish SNCF for
Holocaust-era actions.

SNCF transported 76,000 French Jews to Nazi concentration camps. While SBNC
expressed regret they say they had no control over the operations during
Nazi occupation.

The French government has paid $6 billion in reparations but only to French
citizens and some deportees. The new agreement will help compensate US,
Canadian, Israeli and some others not eligible for the other French
reparations. The French have other international accords with Poland,
Belgium, Britain and Czech Republic over compensation for deportation of
victims.
