HUBERT Family Ancestry #germany

Jack Hubert
 

Hello German Sig Members. My name is Jack Hubert living in Queens New York.
I have been a member of Jewish Gen almost >from its inception. I still
consider myself as an amateur genealogist because there is always
something new to learn. My skills at the use of the internet are
intermediate. Sorry to say my German is poor.

I am tracing a part of the HUBERT family >from Cronheim Germany.
In particular the children of Bonfet HUBERT and his wife Fromet.
1. Abraham HUBERT born in Cronheim May 17, 1862. He passed 3/29/1926.
He married Lina STEIN born in Emetzhofen 12/2/1869. They lived in
Windsbach. He was a Hebrew teacher and a leader of the synagogue.
I have a copy of his obituary. Lina died in Therseinstadt in
June 1943. I cannot any children born >from this marriage. I have
sent E mails to Windsbach and have not received a reply.

2. Zilli HUBERT born in Cronheim Jan 24,1859. She married Alexander LANG
born in Treuchtlingen. I have no further info regarding children born
>from this marriage.
3. Regina HUBERT born in Cronheim Feb 18 1855. I have no further info.
4. Helena HUBERT born in Cronheim Mar 27, 1853. I have no further info
5. Loew HUBERT born in Cronheim May 11th 1847. I have no further info.

If any member of the group can advise me on how to continue my search
their assistance would be appreciated.

Before closing I wish to give special thanks to Peter Lobbenberg
a German Sig member in England whose info on Fanny HUBERT born
Oct 8 1850 gave me the clues which allowed me to locate the present
generation of Fanny's >from her arrival in the U.S. in 1866 and her
marriage to Moritz MILLER in the 1870's.

Was "Theis" ISRAEL, born 1610, Jewish? #germany

Jeffrey Herrmann
 

My 8th great grandfather, Mathiess " Theis " ISRAEL, (possibly also known
as Matthias ISRAEL) was born in 1610 in Bassenheim, Mayen-Koblenz,
Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany and died on 7 December 1698 in Altenkirchen,
Kusel, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. His daughter, Appollonia
ISRAEL, was also born in Bassenheim, in 1650. Appollonia married a
Johann Wissbach >from Kirdorf, a small Roman Catholic village near Bad
Homburg, and lived there for the rest of her life. He probably was a
Roman Catholic.

I have found no evidence of the religion of this 8th great grandfather
or of his daughter. What is the likelihood, given his surname, that
Mathiess "Theis" ISRAEL was Jewish? Does anyone know of records which
might shed light on this question? Any thoughts or opinions would be
greatly appreciated.

Looking for sample introductry presentation or tips

A. E. Jordan
 


Does anyone have a sample introduction to genealogy presentation or seen a good one they could share?

I have been asked by my local library to give a basic introduction to genealogy presentation.  The community is predominately Jewish but I will have to keep it non sectarian to some extent.  The organizers tried a presentation last year and they said it did not go over as well maybe because the person was too detailed.  The audience will be older and less computer savvy.

I have some ideas starting off with a basic discussion of why and what you can hope to find and then how to get started at the most basic levels and then a few next steps and examples.  Of course I will mention the JewishGen FAQ -- it is how I got started all those years ago.

If anyone has a presentation they want to share (please send privately) or some ideas/tips love to hear from this experienced audience.

Also thinking about how to describe and title the program to draw in the biggest audience.

Thanks!

Dear researchers,
Here is an update for the Bessarabia SIG projects for the month of October 2019.
See also at What's New at Bessarabia SIG website.

Jewish Cemeteries. Updates:
-- Completed photographing and indexing of Valea-lui-Vlad Jewish Cemetery (former Jewish Agricultural colony) and sent to JOWBR 44 burial records with 44 images. Most of the inscriptions are not readable. See information at the Valea-lui-Vlad Cemetery Report at Bessarabia SIG website at Valea-lui-Vlad Cemetery Report (https://www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/files/cemetery/valea-lui-vlad/Valea-lui-VladCemeteryReport.pdf )

-- See 2 minutes of Aerial view on Kishinev Jewish Cemetery, mostly Sector 6, October 2019 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QeW3wi6gHc )

Bessarabian Databases. Updates:
--Revision Lists, plan to upload to JewishGen in December of 2019. A number of Revision List sets are going to be completed for towns of Kishinev, Khotin, Faleshty, Brichany, Beltsy, etc, (see the progress at https://www.jewishgen.org/bessarabia/files/databases/RevisionsOctober2019.pdf ) . There are already 2126 records completed.

Genealogical Articles.
-- Added an article/link about The Open Databases project at the Museum of Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot. It is a great resource to find out more about our families in Bessarabia/Moldova. You can get all family trees, photos for a particular town, or a family. For example for town of Brichany I got 26 articles, Beltsy - 36 and Bendery - 75 even for Valea-lui-Vlad, an agricultural colony I saw 2 articles. Here is a link to Museum of Jewish People site - https://www.bh.org.il/databases/jewish-genealogy/ )

Culture, Recipes. Updates:
-- Roza Makes Kasha Varnishkes. Here is how Roza present herself: Ich bin a Khotiner, Bessarabie, labn Chernovitz (I am >from Khotyn, Bessarabia, near Chernovitz). The video is in Yiddish with English subtitles. I should tell that I enjoyed it so much, that I want you to watch it too. Ich givein azoy tsifridn tsu zein dos... - I was so glad to see this: http://pakvim.net/watch/kEMiMBSOE94

NYC Area Volunteers for a Cemetery Project

A. E. Jordan
 

I am trying to organize a cemetery project for Mt Zion Cemetery in Maspeth, Queens, New York before winter sets in (or if we fail now in the spring).

I am thinking of trying to do this (weather dependent) November 10th or November 17 -- a Sunday morning.  Roads will be quieter to drive there and hopefully the weather will not be too cold.  Plus the target plot is in about as good a condition as it will be.

Looking a for a few volunteers with the primary interest being people with a digital camera to take photos and maybe a few people to do some paperwork on site.  (Phase II might require some computer work volunteers.)  Note there are NO PATHS so it is involving walking over uneven ground, possibly climbing over or around stones, etc. and there will be some wildlife -- those tiny lizards, squirrels, and who knows.  I say this so if you are hesitant please don't volunteer although I have been though this plot a few dozen times and not had a problem with animals and maybe stumbled but never fallen.  I consider it safe but of course you are at your own risk.

The idea is there is a large plot (2,700 graves) at Mt Zion which seems to have constant interest from people but which the cemetery office has no map and limited details.  The plot is called Judah 1 and it is very challenging to find individual graves without the map because it is not one plot but actually a series of sub sections within the big plot.  Also since the burial society is long defunct the plot gets less maintenance but right now is clean cut and of course will stay that way till spring.

While the database say 2,700 stones the reality is the project will yield less since there are two large areas of children's stones that will yield little and some stones have fallen or are unreadable.  There are a few interesting and unique stones in the plot too.

My idea is volunteers will take sections of the plot and photograph every stone.  You will have to make some indications as you go to local or rows and then we can match the names and stones up and maybe even draw a map of this plot.  The individual lines are fairly small so you will do a few lines, starting from the same side and indicating when each row ends.  Final result will take some time to compile after we leave the cemetery but then we can load it to JOWBR as a gift to the broader community and if we draw a map maybe even give it to Mt Zion for their future reference.

This will be all volunteer but someone offered to buy coffee for the intrepid researchers and I am offering my time (hopefully expertise) to organize it.

If you can assist please email me directly.

Thank you

Allan Jordan



English Translations of Zelva and Dereczin Memorial Books Are Now Online

Jack Berger
 

Dear readers,

 

I have recently posted my two earliest Yizkor Book Translations online. These are:

 

1.       The Zelva Memorial Book

2.       The Dereczin Memorial Book

 

Both can be found on my family website at www.zelva.org

 

In the upper left of the home page of this website, you will see a box labelled “Yizkor Books.” If you click on it, you will be taken to a page where I am posting a *.pdf version of those manuscripts for which I concluded it is time to do so. Just click on the book icon you would like to read.

 

These two books logically go together, because the towns involved were geographically close to one another, and there is much genealogical overlap between them.

 

Should you have any questions, please feel free to write to me at: jsberger@...

 

I hope interested parties will derive value from this information.

 

Regards

Jack
