OESTREICHER and KISCH #austria-czech

Marie OESTREICHER died in Iglau on Sunday 28th November 1909 and was
buried on the 30th Nov. in Goltsch-Jenikau: http://tinyurl.com/6gg7zz

Her children [presumably born >from abt 1832 onwards] were:

Wilhelm married to Berta NEUMANN - Iglau, Moravia
Julie married to Josef HORESTKY - Iglau, Moravia
Elise married to Julius R ROSENZWEIG - Kuttenberg, Bohemia
Flora married to Alois ROSENZWEIG - Pardubitz, Bohemia
Emil married to Gisela REINER - Vienna
Arnold married to Franziska STIASNY - Goltsch-Jenikau, Bohemia
Semi? married to Ottilie POLLAK - Prague
Dr Karl married to Klaire KISCH - Karlsbad, Bohemia
Jakob married to Berta POSILES - Iglau, Moravia
Ignatz married to Jula FLEISCHNER - Pardubitz, Bohemia

I hope Klaire KISCH will shed more light on Raymond van Kooyk's
KISCH research, highlighted recently.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------
Further to Celia Male's message the following:

Karl OESTREICHER was a doctor in Karlsbad in one of its spas. His wife Klara
KISCH was a daughter of Enoch Heinrich KISCH, doctor and balneotherapist in
Marienbad. It wouldn't surprise me if the two knew each other.
Karl's son was Felix Herman, also a doctor. He was married to Gerda LAQUEUR
and came to Holland during the war with his 3 children. They were all sent
to Bergen Belsen and were liberated by the Russians. However Felix and Gerda
died in Trobitz in June and May '45 resp. In 2000 Felix's diary was
published by one of his daughters:
"Ein Judischer Arzt-Kalender : Durch Westerbork Und Bergen-Belsen Nach
Trobitz Konzentrationslager-Tagebuch 1943-1945".
One of their daughters died in Amsterdam. The other two, twins, are still
living.
Felix's sister Lisbeth died in Holland as well as another sister, Marie
Karoline aka Maria Austria, a photographer.

One of Klara KISCH's sisters was Ernestine (Nini). She was married to Emil
Ritter VON FURTH. He came >from Strakonice.
Brother of Klara was Franz, also a doctor in Marienbad and Vienna. I think
he may have escaped to England, but wasn't able to trace him.
Yet another sister was Margarete married to Bela Tausz, also a doctor in
Karlsbad. And yet another sister was Else married to Imre von Frankl.

Dear SIG members,
I wish to identify people in photos that were taken in Lackenbach,
Burgenland, Austria during the 1930s.
There are family photos, school photos and a few photos near Lackenbach
Synagogue.
Unfortunately, no family member >from Lackenbach is still alive to identify
them.
If you know of anyone >from Lackenbach that might be able to help,
please contact me to: loeflery@netspace.net.au

EPSTEIN Y-DNA Surname Project Update #rabbinic

Itzhak Epstein
 

As many EPSTEIN researchers know, there is a Family Tree DNA --
JewishGen EPSTEIN surname project. The project's participants' map
at the bottom of
http://www.familytreedna.com/public/Epstein&fixed_columns=on
shows our heavy concentration in Belarus and nearby areas. Painless
mouth swab genetic testing procedures are being used as a promising
tool for breaking through our genealogical brick walls. I am
writing to report to the broad Jewish genealogy community about our
progress and to further expand our circle of participants.

We are working on identifying the various branches of our principal
cluster, identifying additional members of our minor clusters, and
on connecting our members to cousins. To accomplish this goal and to
create as broad a search as possible, we need more male EPSTEINs to
contribute a cheek swab as a DNA sample. If you are female or an
EPSTEIN through female ancestors, a sample >from an EPSTEIN male
relative can represent your family in the test. If you are not an
EPSTEIN please share this post with male EPSTEINs who may want to
participate in this project.

To join the EPSTEIN surname project through JewishGen, go to
<http://www.jewishgen.org/dna/genbygen.html>, find the EPSTEIN
surname and click on it. The prices that you see are discounted in
two ways. First, as a member of a project you pay less than people
who join individually. In addition, there is a summer discount for
all projects' members that was extended until the end of September.
In addition, FTDNA shares with JewishGen part of what each customer
who joins through JewishGen pays.

Of our 38 tested project members, a principal cluster of 15 members,
almost all of whom are previously strangers to each other, seem to
be related to each other. These members are very probably descended
from the historic EPSTEINs of the late 14th century in Frankfurt am
Mein. Four of the 15 cannot identify any EPSTEIN ancestry but are
included because of their uniquely close genetic relationship to us.
Seven pairs of project members may also be mutually related. The
other nine members are unrelated to any other current EPSTEIN
surname project member. In addition, most members are closely
related to men whose surnames are other than EPSTEIN.

Our tentative conclusion is that about half of the EPSTEINs'
ancestors chose the surname when the authorities mandated Jews to do
so early in the 19th century. There are also families that are
either related to the historic EPSTEINs >from before the original
surname's origination in Frankfurt or are EPSTEINs who chose a
different surname at a later date.

As for the historic EPSTEINs' ancient origins, our haplogroup's
short name is R-U152/S28. In plainer English this means that our
ancient origins are probably in the Alps and not in the Levant.

I am writing to you not only to tell you this, but also to inquire on their
behalf whether there are still others >from Balassagyarmat who might still be
out there. If so, would you please contact me, tell me your name, perhaps
something about yourself, include your email address or other contact info,
and I will contact others landsleit, if you'd like, >from your town.
It would be wonderful if I could even make more connections!

My mother’s uncle has arrived to New York on July 1, 1884 >from Rotterdam,

I have checked Steve Morse website and found out that on that date 2 ships

How can I learn which one of the two arrived >from Rotterdam? Or perhaps was

While visiting Venice recently we met a gentleman who introduced himself as

quite emphatically, that KATZOFF in ancient Russian was something to do with
lumber.

While most commentators say that KATZOFF comes >from the hebrew term "Katzav"
(butcher) my mother, for years has stated that she read in a novel about
KATZAPNIKs who were lumber people. My ancestor were in the lumber
profession.

Can anyone confirm the above meaning of KATZOFF?

enhancing cemetery surveys with maps #general

Bob Kosovsky
 

Hey folks,

I've been attending the big Web 2.0 Expo here in New York City, and attended a
fascinating session called Where 2.0. In short, this session brought to my
attention all the map and GPS developments that have been going on. The
presenter showed how it was possible to derive a map using software and
cellphones (with their built in GPS systems).

Based on this presentation, it should be possible to enhance the way we "record"
cemeteries. Now, in addition to simply photographing all the gravestones in a
plot, you can combine those photographs with information >from your GPS system
(in your phone or other software). By tagging each photograph with the
information, you can create (with Google Maps) an image of the cemetery just
like Google Maps (looking at street level). It would mean that people could
"browse" the cemetery, zoom in or out on specific stones without having to go
there.

It was fascinating, and I'm wondering if anyone has tried this, or is
intending to try it.
