Searching for a first name Eliokim. #general

Rosalind
 

I would appreciate the opinions of more experienced genners please.

I am trying to find earlier ancestors.

Question one. Could Eliokim and Eliyahu be interchangeable or should I be
looking for an ancestor specifically Eliokim?

The earliest known ancestor of our ABRAMOWICH tree is Uriel Eliyahu
appearing on the 1845 revision list in Pandelys as not Abramowich but
"Yankelowich or Abelowich". Wife Roche.

His known children, Abram b 1845 and Frieda b 1855 were known as Abramowich
so I have to guess he changed >from patronymic to surname sometime after 1845.

He died before 1895 when a grandson (son of Eliokim Meir) received his
name Uriel Eliyahu.

Abram, the son, had 3 sons, Eliokim Meir (Meir >from his wife's family), then
Zecharya Alter and finally Movsha Shevel.

A son of Eliokim Meir was named Uriel Eliyahu and a grandson Eliyahu.

So I have been searching for an Eliokim who could be grandfather to Abram
ABRAMOWICH.

Until now I had assumed Eliokim was a version of Eliyahu. What do you think?

I'm trying to find any information on a cousin whose name was Rose RITER.
Rose lived in Hoboken all of her life along with her mother Sarah RITER.
Rose married Philip KLEIN and they had 3 daughters when Rose died in around
1956. I would love to find any information that I can for her children.
They have little to no information on her and no pictures.

Thanks so much for your help and kindness,

Visit to Majorca/Mallorca #general

William Yoffee
 

My wife and I are planning a trip to the Spanish Island of Majorca during
Passover. We have arranged to participate in the Jewish Community's seder on
the first night, and we will try to make contact with the Xueta community.

For those who are not familiar with the history of the Jews of Majorca,
there are indications of Jews present in the Balearic Islands as early as
the 2nd Century C.E., and Jews lived there since the earliest occupation by
Arabs beginning in 902 C.E. The Jewish community became especially important
to the island's economy and foreign trade after the conquest by King James I
of Aragon (King James I of Majorca) in 1229-30.

The community thrived until all Jews were forcibly baptized in 1435, well
before the expulsion of Jews >from Spain in 1492. These Conversos, also known
as New Christians, were so discriminated against and virtually quarantined
that they formed a separate community known as Xuetas (pronounced chu-eh-tas)
and were not permitted to integrate or marry within the Old Christian community.
Consequently, for over 500 years the families of the Xueta community prayed in
a separate church and intermarried exclusively among themselves.

Recently, some of this community's members appealed to rabbinical authorities
in Israel for permission to convert to Judaism, but were determined to already
be Jewish and therefor did not need to formally convert.

There are fifteen existing family surnames that are considered to be of
original Xueta families. While my surname is not one of them, Jaffe, or some
variation appears frequently in the early Aragon records concerning Majorca.
For example, in 1238, King James rewarded a number of the Jewish soldiers,
including one named Jaffia, who participated in his conquest of the island
with land grants on the Island of Majorca. He also afforded the Jewish
community special protection.

We would appreciate any information or advice >from anyone who has visited
the Island of Majorca or had contact with the Jewish Community or the Xueta
community. You may communicate directly with me at the email address below.

Jewish community in Ludwigsburg before 1939- Memorial project #germany

SiebenSachen - Daniel Simon
 

Dear Genners,
I'd like to draw your attention to an interesting project going on in Ludwigsburg
(close to Baden-Wurttemberg's capital Stuttgart), hoping you will find it
interesting and maybe be able to contribute important information to it.

Here, a group of citizens has found the site of the synagogue burnt down
in 1938 lacking both in dignity and informational content. Being one of
few such sites that have never been built over, this square in the middle
of town deserves more thought and structure! Thus, they initiated a
public discussion and >from that a keen plan emerged: a suitcase
sculpture will be installed in the middle of the square, bearing the
names of numerous Jewish citizens who perished in the Shoah, and an
electronic stele will provide detailed information.

The city council agreed to reshape the square at last and to bear 2/3 of
the total costs valued at about EUR 360.000, the remaining EUR 120.000
having to be raised >from private donors and foundations. The campaign
for this just having begun, the building works are supposed to start in
early summer and to be finished in time for the commemoration day on
10^th November 2014.

All the details, sketches and information to be browsed at
www.synagogenplatz.de <http://www.synagogenplatz.de/> - only in German,
unfortunately. Don't hesitate to ask about anything you might want me to translate!

So: anybody in possession of documents, pictures, any kind of knowledge
about the former Jewish community of Ludwigsburg that might not yet be
known to the people working on this project please be in touch! Either
directly with Jochen Faber at dialog@... or privately with
me info@...

It is a marriage certificate >from a wedding that took place in the Irena

Ned help with last name: Pflaster, Pfatser, Platzer... in Nowy Sacz #poland

Paula Blank
 

My gg grandmother was Marjem Rivke Platzer/ Pflaster/ Pfaster. She
is listed differently on three different documents and I am trying
to figure out which, if any, is correct. She was married to
Salke Peterfreund (1838-1889?) and lived in Nowy Sacz. They had
at least three daughters: Fannie Langer, Debora Lustbader and Chawe
Spira.
1.In a Polish birth record (of a child) she is listed as Rivke PLATZER.
2.In a US marriage license (of her daughter Fannie) she is listed as
Mary PFATSER. (Note: this marriage license has a lot of
misspellings of names.)
3. Another US marriage license lists her as Mary Relbecka. (assuming
that's Rebecca)
4. In Sefer Sanz it lists all of the tax payers in 1866 in Nowy Sacz)
and it includes both PFLASTER and FLASTER.

Any ideas?
Does anyone know how "pf" is pronounced in Polish?

Thanks
