Jewish residents of Mühlhausen 1770's-1800s

Alan Ehrlich
 

Dear Genners,

Can anyone possibly point me to information sources regarding Jewish residents of Mühlhausen and vicinity during 1770's-1800s.

All the information I've presently come across either relates to the Middle ages through 1650s, or to post-1820.

For information, I'm researching information re. the following person:

Aron ben Heynemann b. circa 1750 in Rotenburg a.d. Fulda, Germany, who by 1783 resided: in Mühlhausen or vicinity.

...Son of Heynemann "Chaim" ben Meyer b. 1698 °° Emile bat Peritz ben Cappell b. circa 1710 in  Herleshausen, Germany

... Arons siblings variously adopted the surnames: Dellevie, Ballin and Plaut 1808 in Rotenburg a.d. Fulda, while other siblings or their wives/children (subsequently) changed their surnames to: Wertheimer/Werthan, Dilloff, Doellefeld

Thank you.

Friendly regards,
Alan

Searching for grave of Beryl Moshe KANOFSKY/KARNOFSKY #southafrica

I am trying to locate the grave of Beryl Moshe Kanofsky/Karnofsky, who emigrated
to South Africa >from Neswiecz, Minsk Gubernia. I assume he lived in the Cape Town
area. I have searched for graves in Pinelands and other locations to no avail.
I am not certain of either his birth or death dates, although I am assuming his
birth would be around 1890 and death in the 1940s. Any help would be greatly
appreciated. Thanks

smousing and Afrikaaner relationships #southafrica

Eitan Levy <levy.eitan@...>
 

The following is an extract of an account dictated by my great uncle
Hyman Levy to his son Sam. It is handwritten and some parts { marked
so } are illegible. It gives an insight into the importance of
smousing and of the relationships with the local Afrikaaners -
including Paul Kruger's inlaws - and seems to show that smousing was
not negatively regarded.

[Hyman describes his arrival in SA and the various jobs he held in
Cape Town and Johannesburg before going to Rustenberg to smous.]


(Pa.... heard that) a Landsman Mr Ahrenfred was in a shop in
Rustenberg and was looking for a smouser.....

Mr Ahrenfred said Rinderpest was prevalent & oxen were impossible to
obtain for smousing. Donkeys only were available for spanning in. Mr
A's clerks father also wished to accompany Pa on smousing - he also
was a Jew. Du Plessis provided the wagon & donkeys on { ? } and the
former {farmer?} drove. Went away for 2/12 & sold all the goods &
returned & in return for goods got some cash but mostly mealies &
corn. Paid 18/- bag mealies & got 30/- bag. Most trade was with
Natives & to a lesser extent with farmers. At Machadasdorp
{Rovincross} {bros} had a shop - then at that time a law was that a
smous could only remain for 24 hours.

A paid Pa 15 pounds p.month & food. Then he left for J.Burg - ox wagon -
took 3 days. No charge. Farmers knew him well & did not charge him -
they treated Jews very well.

On arrival there stayed in Commissioner Str and bought unframed
pictures & stayed with Theunis Eloff - Paul Krugers son-in-law - &
Piet Triechardt - son of Commandant Triechardt (a school master). This
man gave Pa drapery for him to smous & profits to be shared. Used a
wagon with 6 donkeys.

Continued to smous until war broke out. There was credit system & when
war broke out everything was lost. He joined up in the Rustenberg
Commando under Casper Du Plessis - Paul Krugers brother-in-law - who
was in charge of mounted commando.

[Hyman then gives an account of taking part in the war on the Boer
side. According to records he was captured by the British in November
1900 and was prisoner of war #17122] .

BANK family from Kovno Gubernia #lithuania

Igor Schein <igorschein@...>
 

My great-great-grandmother was Michel ben Yaakov BANK, >from Braslav.
He died in 1919 in Riga, Latvia. When his brother Max "Motel" came to
NYC in 1913, he listed his "brother" <unreadable> BANK as a going-to
relative.

I was able to determine that there was a Haskel BANK, also originally
from Braslav, who lived at that same address at that same time.
I was later informed that Haskel, whose father was Tzalel BANK
and who was reportedly related to various BANK families living in
Keidan, Lithuania, had 3 sisters in New Jersey. I've communicated
with a descendant of Reva Tollin, and I am aware of the family of
Sarah Ginsberg. I am having hard time tracking down the 3rd family.
I believe the 3rd sister, Mary, married Harry Yassen in 1908 in
Newark, NJ, but I wasn't able to find anything after 1908 on that
surname - perhaps it was badly misspelled in the marriage index..

I am also trying to figure out how exactly Haskel is related to my
family. If any of the above sounds familiar to you, or you have a
general interest in BANK families >from Kovno Gubernia, please contact
me directly - I've amassed a solid amount of genealogical data over
the years.

Best,

Igor Schein

The December Issue of the Galitzianer #poland

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

We are delighted to announce the release of the December 2019 issue of
the "Galitzianer," the quarterly research journal of Gesher Galicia.

Spanning centuries, this issue is a smorgasbord of history, politics,
and family narratives--and it raises a host of interesting questions.
How will a new Polish regulation complicating access to records impact
Jewish genealogical research? What can we learn about the Jewish
community in Galicia >from the first Galician census? How
did universal male suffrage impact Jewish political representation
during the Habsburg Monarchy? How do you uncover your family's past
when the surviving relative doesn't want to talk about it? What should
you consider before interviewing a Holocaust survivor?

The December issue of the journal raises these and other questions
through the following articles:
- "Research Corner: Successes and Hurdles" by Mark Jacobson
- "The First Habsburg Census" by Andrew Zalewski
- "Jewish Deputies >from Galicia" by Borries Kuzmany
- "Looking for My Parents" by Reuven Liebes
- "My Grandmother's Kitchen" by Peter Bein
- "Map Corner: 1850 Cadastral Map of Gorlice" by Jay Osborn
- "Day with Murray" by Barbara Krasner
- "Membership News" by Shelley Kellerman Pollero

The Galitzianer is a membership benefit of Gesher Galicia, though
anyone is invited to submit articles on Galicia-related themes. For
membership information, visit our website at

Great walking tour of Jewish London history

N. Summers
 



If anyone is in London for a visit, I highly recommend the walking tours of the Old Jewish Quarter with a gentleman named Stephen Burstin. My husband and I took a tour arranged by JW3 (see link below) which is a marvelous London Jewish Community Center. Our tour focused on just one section of London, but in that two hours we learned so much about the Jewish immigrants  from eastern Europe and Spain/Portugal, and walked through the streets where they lived, went to school, worked and worshipped. My husband and I were deeply moved.
