Taurage internal passport records #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

Another group of Taurage District internal passport records, 1919-1940,
has been translated and is now available to researchers. This makes a
total of 1,026 records that have been translated.

Normally, a $100.00 contribution to LitvakSIG would be required in order
to receive these records. Taurage is in the Raseiniai District and, if you
would like to also receive all of the other types of records for the entire
Raseiniai District, another $100.00 contribution would be required. However,
through a cooperative effort initiated by Sam Aaron, Coordinator of the
Raseiniai District Research Group (DRG) and me, you can receive not only
the Taurage internal passport records but all of the Raseiniai District
records as well for the same $100.00 contribution. This constitutes a 50%
discount and I am sure you would like to take advantage of this one time
offer.

Go to www.litvaksig.org/contribute. Be sure and specify your contribution
is for the Raseiniai District and for Taurage I.P. records. The site is
secure so you can use your credit card. As soon as Sam is notified of
your contribution, he will make all of the records available to you.

Important - do not ignore these 1919-1940 records because your ancestors
left Lithuania in the late 1800's or early 1900's. Researchers have found
many records of their ancestors in these internal passport records. Your
immediate family may have left but, in many cases, their brothers and
sisters as well as other family members remained.

Re: SHUCHMAN Obits - help requested #general

Dear Cousins,

Marie Spearman is seeking help in finding descendants of Harry SHUCHMAN and
his wife Clara. She has lots of hints, such as the names of three daughters
from the 1930 census, Clara's naturalization, Harry's death certificate, and
their burial location. Unfortunately Harry's death certificate has an imprecise
married name for their daughter Ruth, the informant.

Two immediate things came to mind. Marie should call Mount Lebanon Cemetery
where they are buried, and ask them to look at their records for both. They may
have a different next of kin, or the correct surname of Ruth.

Also, a quick check of the New York City brides index using Ethel as an exact
first name and the sounds like option for Shuchman as the last name gives an
Ethel Schuchmann, married Feb 28, 1937 in Brooklyn, certificate no. 3625. The
groom is listed as Milton J Brode. Of course it may not be spellled correctly,
and I don't know if she was the 'proper; age to get married in1937, but there's a
possibble married name for Ethel.

Two sources immediately come to mind:
1) http://fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html has scanned the entire
Brooklyn Daily Eagle
2) Go to your local library and see if they have an account with the
New York Times Digital Archive, or something similar.

Re: Renaming a sick child after a long-lived deceased relative #general

Lynne Schneider
 

This is anecdotal but I was told that the practice of renaming or adding to the
name of a child who was gravely ill with the name of a long-lived deceased loved
one was done in the hope the child would recover.

I can tell you that my maternal grandfather was originally named Moishe Chiam.
Moishe was very ill as a child and was given the additional names of Gedalia
Meyer in the hope that the long life of this uncle would somehow pass to him.
When my grandmother would be annoyed with Moishe, she could be heard to loudly
call "Moishe Chiam Gedalia Meyer" and then stamp her foot. My grandfather lived
a joyful life, so maybe the "magic" works.

There are quite a few families >from Kamenets_Podolsk in Argentina.

Seeking Ernst Willi ZIMMT - Berlin #germany

Werner Zimmt <wsz@...>
 

The Bergen-Belsen memorial book lists Ernst Willi ZIMMT, b- 26 Feb
1905, d- 9 Apr 1944.

I can't find him in the Yad Vashem list or in the Berliner Addressbuch
or on the Berliner Holocaust Memorial data.

I don't think that there were any Jewish Zimmts in Berlin that were
not related to my family. Is there some one who can offer a suggestion
or know how to find him on-line?

If I write Berlin I need to at which Standesamt to inquire, but I don't know
where he lived, or if he had moved >from somewhere else or to somewhere else.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Rav Yosef of Beznitz #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

In our family there is mention of a Rav Yosef (no family name)
presumably somewhere around the beginning of the 19th cent.

In one version of the tree this Rav Yosef is the Rav of Breznitz. In
all the trees he is a son-in-law of a grandson of Reb. Naftali KATZ,
author of the Smichas Chachamim, through the lineage of R' Shmuel and
his son R' Arieh leib (his presumed father-in-law) who were Rabbis of
Kremenetz during the 18th cent. R' Yosef was the father of Israel (no
known family name-possibly ROSENBAUM) of Ostrog and a follower of the
Apter Rav (Heschel). Yisrael's son, Yosef married into the family of
the Admo"r of Lechowitz (R' Aharon and Perl-marrying their daughter).

My interest lies primaily in identifying the above R' Yosef of
Breznitz. What town is this? What was his family name and any other
details about him. Published material as to our lineage end with the
above R' Arieh Leib of Kremenetz and don't come down to our
generation.

As mention above, I am in possesion of two family trees: One prepared
by the Jerusalem SCHECHTER family (my branch) and another by another
Jerusalem family ZEIVALD-PAPIRNE (PAPIRNE being members of the
Kalin-Stolin Chassidic group).

"Never underestimate the power of JewishGen": the online Discussion Group
has proven once again to be the catalyst in finding an invaluable piece of
information to add to my research of my maternal ancestry!

Several Genners may recall my posting several weeks ago:
<As another note to add to this discussion of WWI burials of Jewish
soldiers:My maternal Grandmother's brother - age 18, who had emigrated >from
Austria several years prior to joining the National Guard, was drafted and killed
<in action in 1918, during the Battle of the Argonne, and had been buried in
France.
<After several years of red-tape, and at the request of my Grandmother, his
<body was finally shipped to the United States and laid to rest in a Jewish
<Cemetery - in the family plot in Baltimore.
<At my request, I received a packet of copies of the entire procedure
<{documented by the U.S. Government - including all of my Uncle's Army
<records, and a copy of the heart-breaking letter written by my
Grandmother!}

A fellow Genner, Michael Kaltman, amongst others, emailed me for additional
information on how I found the information and after my reply, he offered me
another good research resource.
Living near D.C., Mr. Kaltman told me he had visited the Library of
Congress, after reading of a 3 volume work in their holdings:
"Soldiers of the Great War", a compilation of photographs of soldiers who
had fought in World War 1.

I immediately phoned the Library of Congress, 202-707-5537, and was directed
to their catalogue center, where an extremely nice Librarian gave me the
call # for the title I was looking for, and transferred my call to the
research center.
I was asked to place my request for my Uncle's photo in an email to
www.loc.gov/rr/print/research
and to include the call # of the books: D609.U6S6

I received an acknowledgement the day following my online query, >from Ask a
Librarian:
http://www.loc.gov/rr/askalib

5 days later, I received an email >from a Reference Librarian:
<<Thank you for your inquiry, Sylvia! I have found a photo of your great
Uncle, Maurice Awner, in the book Soldiers of the Great War. I will send a
copy of it to you in the mail.>>

3 days later - last Saturday, I received the photo! When I opened the
envelope and looked at the picture - small as it was [since it was printed
on a page with 20 others] I was absolutely thrilled to see the resemblance
to my Grandmother and her surviving sibling!

I had never seen a photo of my Great Uncle - this was the first time!!!

I wanted to share this research "plum" with all of you - and hope you are
all as fortunate as Mr. Kaltman and I, in "putting a face" to an ancestor!!!

Thanks again to JewishGen, and to the Library of Congress!
