I am replying to Hilary Pillin's query: I note she comes >from Oxford -
my home town. There is a Jewish community in Oxford: I'm
sure someone there would be interested in helping.

Searching in Jewish genealogy is harder than for English genealogy. And when
Jews changed names, often they used the same initial letter, but not always.

Yechutiel could easily have become Donald or Ferdinand or Alexander -
whatever the man wanted.
Name changes & more importantly, Naturalizations were sometimes recorded in
the London Gazette: have a look at:
https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=48920.0
But everyone leaves a paper trail in history - principally the records for
birth, marriage, death, religious coming of age (circumcision,
barmitzvah/confirmation)
May I suggest Hilary joins these online groups:
JGSGB; https://www.jgsgb.org.uk/
Ancestry: http://www.ancestry.co.uk - I don't think a serious genealogist
can work without being a subscriber to Ancestry.
www.FamilySearch.org -which is free, run by the Mormons

And for UK searches: https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/

There are, as she says, a frightening number of websites & searches
possible. If you join the JGSGB & come to a meeting in London (there is also
a Chilterns group)
her search will proceed further.

My great, great grandmother was Julia COWAN b1824 in Finsbury, Middlesex,
London. She married (I believe) a William Young who was a lot older than her,
b. 1798, and they had my great-grandfather Alexander in 1858. In the 1851
Anglo-Jewry Database there is reference to Julia's father being Yechutiel
HACHOEN. Julia had two brothers, Solomon and Isaac and three sisters Fanny,
Sarah and Hannah.

Subject: Searching Israeli Descendants of Sara and Zvi OREN (nee Herman
ZWIEBACK): daughters Michael and Dorit, Tel Aviv, Israel

I am searching for two of my maternal first cousins, sisters Michael and
Dorit OREN in or near Tel Aviv, Israel. Any help or suggestions would
certainly be appreciated. I have tried to do the research by joining the
Israel Genealogy Research Assn (IGRA) but have been unsuccessful, either for
lack of knowing the Hebrew language or the "how to's" of the various Israeli
on-line links.

Herman ZWIEBACK/ZWIEBACH, born Josef Hirsch ZVIBACH, 18 Jul 1912, Kuty,
Kosow, Stanislawow, Poland (currently Ukraine) to Abraham and Henny GRAU.
In 1914, during World War 1 the family lived in Vienna. Herman emigrated
as a "Pioneer" to Israel in the early 1930s. There, he married Sara,
Palestine born. Their three daughters: Michael, born 1943, Dorit, born
1946, and Tami, born 1949.

Herman and Sarah adopted new names, as Zvi and Sarah OREN. I believe this
probably occurred shortly after Palestine became the State of Israel.

The last known address for Uncle Zvi and his family was: ** Rechov
Metodila, Shikun Dan, Tel Aviv. Uncle Zvi passed away sometime around 1980
or so. Shortly after Zvi died, our families (his sisters, Rose and my
mother Zita) lost contact with his family.

Michael married and has one daughter that I know of. I do not know
Michael's married surname. Dorit married and has three children that I know
of. I do not know her married name either. Although I located Uncle Zvi's
youngest daughter, Tami, now living in Los Angeles, she never responded to
my written inquiry nor returned my phone call.

Any assistance or suggestions are appreciated to locate Michael and Dorit,
or their descendants.

Please respond privately.

Early American SIG #USA Download the JewishGen Passover Companion 2019 #usa

Avraham Groll
 

Dear JewishGen Community.

We are pleased to present the JewishGen Passover Companion 2019, which
contains inspirational vignettes about how Passover was observed in
various communities, along with first-hand accounts about the great
effort and personal risk (Mesirat Nefesh) Jews took to observe
Passover during the Holocaust.

As you gather around the Seder table, and tell the story of the
Exodus, we hope that this companion will have helped inspire you to
connect with previous generations, while considering your role in
preserving the history and legacy of not just your family, but the
entirety of the Jewish people.

To download the file to your computer (and for printing), please click

Wishing you a Happy Passover and Chag Kosher V'Sameach!
