Announcing "The Jacobi Papers: Genealogical Studies of Leading Ashkenazi Families" #general

Mokotoff <garymokotoff@...>
 

Avotaynu, in conjunction with the International Institute for Jewish Genealogy, has
just published a four-volume work of the family trees developed by the late Paul
Jacobi (1911-1997). It represents more than a half century of work by Jacobi in
documenting the lineages of leading Ashkenazi families.

Running to 2,300 pages in all, and containing countless family trees --
many rabbinic -- going back many centuries, this work is a cornucopia of
genealogical knowledge and data of relevance to all family historians and scholars
working on Ashkenazi Jewry. There are tens of thousands of names.

Jacobi held that a core-group of some 80 elite families dominated Ashkenazi Jewry
from its beginnings. To test his theory, he investigated more than 450 families to
varying levels of detail, using the considerable resources available to him in
Jerusalem. Of these, he took more than 100 studies to completion. None of his
research, however, was published during his lifetime. On his death, his manuscripts
were placed in the National Library of Israel. Two decades later, this invaluable
genealogical compendium, Jacobi's life-work, is being published for the first time.

Visit the website at http://avotaynu.com/books/Jacobi-Papers.html to see if any of
your family names are included in the book. There is a link to the surname index
as well as a table of contents for all four volumes.

Re: Searching Nison CHOROSUCH born in 1924 of St. Kilda, Victoria #general

David & Diana Laufer
 

A search on the National Archives of Australia https://recordsearch.naa.gov.au/ for
the surname CHOROSUCH showed the existence of 3 files of that name.
One referred to Nison, another to Yael, both arriving in Melbourne, Australia on
10 Jan 1952. The third referred to a Roza, whose surname was also known as CORRY.

Perhaps your research should also include the surname CORRY, in case the entire
family changed to that name. That research could include accessing the Victoria
registry in Melbourne at
https://www.bdm.vic.gov.au/research-and-family-history/search-your-family-history
