DESENSY (DUSCHENES, DUSENSY) #austria-czech

sittingonafence@...
 

Dear Group

In the Prager Tagblatt of March 15, 1884, I came across the death of Josef DESENSY of Raudnitz.
More DESENSY can be found in the Prague police conscription records and they all seem to be from
Raudnitz.

I wonder if these DESENSY are related to DUSENSY and DUSCHENES >from Prague.

Does anyone know more about these DESENSY?

Thanks for your help.

Eva Dattel Bride and groom #austria-czech

sararu70@...
 

I have posted the wedding picture of our family member Eva DATTEL, with the
caption of "Do you recognize ", Viewmate 12974. The picture was taken
in the London area between 1939 to 1945. We have no information about the
groom, except that he was a British soldier. It is evident after our many
searches that Eva probably entered the UK with a different name. It may
have been necessary for her to assume this new identity to escape the Nazis
, and travel through many countries in Europe to secure her freedom.

Eva may not have followed the Jewish religion for reasons of safety so
perhaps her husband was not Jewish. She may have passed on as she would be
in her late 80s or early 90s at this time. However if anyone does
recognize the picture please contact us. If Eva had any children , they
might be alive and living in the UK or perhaps they moved to another
country.

We would just like to know that they are well and tell them they have
family in the United States if they would like to communicate with us.

If the family did not follow life as Jews, then they probably did not
have much contact with Jewishgen. But, perhaps someone will recognize this
bride.
Any response would be greatly appreciated

Thank you

Commissioner for Evaluations in Vienna #austria-czech

rwfgjf@...
 

Dear Friends -

In 1895, my great-grandfather Moritz NOWAK in Vienna was recorded
as being a 'Schätzungs-Commissar' (which translates as
Commissioner for valuations or Valuer).

He also had a history of municipal and community service.

Can anyone please suggest what this position might have entailed?
It sounds as if it's something to do with financial or property
matters.

Philly2009 - Banquet Announcement #austria-czech

David Mink
 

We are delighted to announce that the entertainment for the Philly2009
Banquet will be Yisrael Campbell -- widely regarded as a premiere
standup comedian in Israel -- he's an original and erudite comedian
who has lived in Jerusalem and now lives in New York City. However,
the journey that led Yisrael to The Holy Land began a long time ago
in a place far, far away: he actually was born "Christopher Campbell,"
raised Catholic, and grew up in Philadelphia. For more about Yisrael,
see his website at www.yisraelcampbell.com or check under "program" at
www.philly2009.org

Yisrael will certainly entertain us ---laughing will be a wonderful
way to end the very hectic conference week. We are lucky that he has
agreed to be with us. This is a banquet you will not want to miss!
It will take place on Thursday, August 6.

If you have already registered, and want to add 1 or more banquet
tickets to your registration, please go to the conference website,
www.philly2009.org and click on "Registration Update." You will need
the login and password you received when you registered. Once you are
logged in, click on "optional program" at the left.... you will then
see all the possible optional programs and can select those you want.
You may bring a guest who is not registered for the conference to the
banquet.

If you have not registered, please do so now and sign up for optional
programs while there is still space. You may check on-site to see if
any tickets are still available for different optional programs ( but

DNA testing with FamilyTreeDNA #germany

Janet Akaha <Akaha@...>
 

Yesterday I posted information on DNA testing with FamilyTreeDNA.
Since then I have been inundated with emails >from people who are
interested in testing. They have a promotional price right now for a
Y chromosome-37 marker test PLUS the mtDNA (maternal DNA) test for
only $119. The normal cost of these two tests is $248. This price is
ONLY available if you join a group.

After sending links to many people for both the German Jewish Project
and also to the Jewish Heritage DNA project, I just learned that the
special promotion ends TOMORROW. (Or at least you have to sign up for
a test and pay by June 30th).

I seem to be unable to post links to these groups in this post, but if
you contact me, I would be happy to pass them along.

Gayle Schlissel Riley
 

Thank all of you, who provide me with answer. I did look it up when
I thought about it. Funny he had a home in Palestine and had other
family in Chicago, NYC and Philly. 2 of the family was able to stay
and only 1 was sent back. They spent 3 days in the Hospital.
Interesting..

Naming patterns #general

Barbara Zimmer
 

Michael asked:
"...were children ever named after deceased relatives of the
opposite sex? .... Was anything like this done earlier in the 20th
Century and before? Could my paternal grandfather, born in 1898,
have been named after his paternal grandmother?"

My uncle Reginald born about 1907 was clearly named after his
grandmother, Regina. The next son, Milton, was named after a
grandfather, Michael. Third son, Harold, was probably named after
the other grandmother, Hannah. And my mother, Evelyn, was probably
named after several male relatives named Elias.
