Trying to contact Weber descendants in Israel of the Belz Dynasty #rabbinic

Neil@...
 

The Oldest son of the first Belzer Rebbe, Shalom Rokeach was Rav
Eleazar Rokeah and he had a daughter, Cywia, who married Solomon
(Shlomo) Judah Weber. Most of the Weber family perished but a son of
Cywia was the father of Malka Salpeter of Petach Tikva who posted
Pages of Testimony for the family in 1956 as did Chaim Weber, son of
Yakov Yitzchak, son of Cywia, who lived in Netanya and also posted
Pages of Testimony in 1956.

Re: Town Name Wombiev #general

Michael Shade <michaelshade@...>
 

Could it be Gombin? Gombin (Gabin) is about 100km west of Warsaw, and I have
come across a variety of anglicised spellings for it in UK documents, including
Gombien. Could it be a handwriting thing? We have a Grynbaum family in
Gombin in the 1920s, although they do not appear to be in the Book of Residents
from the late 19C. Do you have any other information you could share - such as
what records do you have, when did he emigrate, do you have names of other
family members?

ViewMate: Birth Record Translation - Russian #general

I would appreciate help with these five Birth Record translations from
Russian. I am most interested in the name of the town the father was from.
If you know where the town is located that would be helpful as well.

ALBAHARY, ELIAS and VIDAS #romania

Bill Hunter <nickh2@...>
 

I have just joined this group. The families I have been researching are
connected with ALBAHARY and ELIAS. Recently learned Raoul VIDAS
(1901-1978), Romanian born and French trained Violin prodigy is a cousin.

I have traced the ALBAHARY family back to Bucharest, though the origin of
my great-great-great grandfather, Isak ALBAHARY is not known, but he lived
in Bucharest which is where his children were born. Another town associated
with him is Silistria. His wife, Ora ELIAS (1901-1901), is listed in Vienna
death record as born in Semlin. Ora is sister to the famous Menachem H.
Elias (1812-1892).
Most of Isak's and Ora's descendants moved to Vienna and Berlin in latter
1800s, but I suspect other relatives were in Romania. Their company, S.
Albahary & Co., is listed as an export firm for Romania and Bulgaria in
Berlin directory in 1930s. In various birth/marriage/death registries
family members are listed as both Sephardic and Turkish Jews. The head of
the S. Albahary firm, Samuel ALBAHARY, was noted to be head of the Vienna
Turkish Jewish community in 1901 obituary of his mother Ora.

It may be that my ALBAHARY family of Romania, may very well be a branch of
the ALBAHARI family. All my information is on wikitree. Isak ALBAHARY:
<https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Albahary-10>

I have recently learned that famous Romanian violinist, Raoul VIDAS, was a
cousin of Jacques ALBAHARY (1872-1942), grandson of Isak and Ora. I do not
know the connection. I look forward to cooperate with anyone with
information or methods for exploring information in Romania and Bulgaria. I
have located many graves in Vienna Jewish Cemetery as well as Berlin, but
nothing in Bucharest. Ora is buried in Vienna, but I presume Isak died well
before his wife Ora and may be buried in Bucharest or Silistria.

hi,

I am researching family that moved to scotland around 1902.

solomon COHEN abt 1871 older brother samuel abt 1859
bessie COHEN (possible maiden names lens, sravitski lenzewitski) abt
1875
maybe dinah COHEN abt 1895 daughter
maybe hanah COHEN abt 1896 daughter
issac COHEN 1900 his naturalization papers show derechin. son

there is a family thought (unverified) that the family changed their
name to cohen when moving to scotland. So would look at births,
marriages and deaths >from 1855 to 1920 and try to match up times.
maybe first names.

from what i have looked so far, did not see anyone with last name COHEN in
the area.

what is the best site to find family information. the 1897 census
could be very helpful, but i could not figure out how to access the
information online.

appreciate any advice on how to proceed.

best,

Re: Need to locate records from Czortkow/Chortkiv #galicia

Phyllis Kramer
 

Claudia Bullock is "seeking assistance in locating records which do not
seem to have been digitized... created prior to World War I, in
Czortkow, Austria...."

Not an easy task: it is exactly what we do in the Galicia courses...
understand the town first, then track where the records are. We begin
with our JewishGen community page to see the location of Chortkiv,
Ukraine 49 01 N 25 48 E. Note the KehilaLinks page
https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Suchostaw/sl_czortkow.htm and that
a cemetery has been indexed on JOWBR! This page
https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/community.php?usbgn=-1037393
will also give you the history of Czortkow's governments and all the
town name aliases.

The first stop for record information is RTRfoundation.org, which lists
all the records in the archives. This will enable you to understand if the
records you seek even exist. RTR lists these birth and marriage vital
records (plus many other types of records):
For birth, AGAD has 1874-1898, 1900-1906, 1921, 1926, 1934-1935,
and the USC has 1906-1935.
For marriage, AGAD has 1878-1911, 1912-1932, 1933-1938; the
Warsaw USC has 1912-1939, and the LVIV archives have 1874-1876,
1888, 1925.
In addition, the LDS has deaths 1874-1876 and 1888, a 1925 marriage
index, and 1925 marriages. When I checked the LDS catalog
(familysearch.org) I found the records were digitized: 2405439, Item 3,
7811145 and available online but according to the JRI-Poland AGAD
Eastern Galician town inventory, this microfilm holds additional births
1912-35, marriages 1912-1942, and deaths 1908-1942.

JRI-Poland's town page for Czortkow lists these records indexed online:
births 1874-1901, deaths 1884-1898. You can see the details here:
https://jri-poland.org/town/czortkow.htm. When I used the JRI-Poland
search (within 10 miles of Czortkow at 4901/2548) for Gottlieb I found 46
records on JRI-Poland from
Czortkow PSA AGAD Marriages 1878,79,82-1911,23,27,30-34 Deaths 1898-1907
Czortkow PSA AGAD Births 1901-11 Births 1874-1901, Deaths 1884-98
so it appears there are more records indexed then on the town list.

At Gesher Galicia: the search at https://search.geshergalicia.org/
turns up 4 records within 10 miles for Gottlieb and also, the
Galitizianer Newsletter of Sept 2017 has many references to Czortkow
records.

All of these indexes and records online are a subset of what is in the
various archives. To find other vital records, you may need to review
the RTR listings, the LDS microfilms and/or find a local Ukraine
researcher to review the USC or LVIV archives. Many of my students in
the Galicia courses (www.jewishgen.org/education) have located which
archives have records which they seek. We are all hoping there will be
more online indexes and records every year..

Hope this helps.

Cemetery Contact Vienna #galicia

Dear Group,

Sigmunt WOLFSTHAL, a musician, is listed in the Lwow Address Book of
1897. He married Ida MESSUTA (born Tarnopol 1880). A Sigmunt
WOLFSTHAL is buried in Vienna (1923) in Vienna.

The cemetery details I have >from JewishGen are
(1) Name: Wiener Zentralfriedhof Cemetery
(2) Address: XI. Simmeringer Hauptstrasse 244

Can you please advice on a contact person overseeing the cemetery, so
I can inquire about details that may exist on the tombstone and/or
more family details (and verify family link)?

(Any other relevant information on Sigmunt, if that names rings a bell,
would be greatly appreciated.)

Thankfully,

For those researching their ancestors in the Civil War this may be of
interest. The (US) National Archives has a Civil War research guide
available at:

https://www.archives.gov/research/military/civil-war/resources

It covers both Union and Confederate records, where and how to find the
records, pension records and more. Pension records are very interesting as
they provide information on what the soldier did during the war.

A new feature is that Civil War paper pension records can now be ordered
online: https://tinyurl.com/2slr6f

Jews and the Civil War

It is estimated that 10,000 Jewish soldiers fought in the Civil War: about
7,000 for the Union and 3,000 for the Confederacy, with some 600 Jewish
soldiers killed in battle.
(Donald Altschiller, "Jews," Encyclopedia of the American Civil War: A
Political, Social, and Military History, eds. David Stephen Heidler, Jeanne
T. Heidler, and David J. Coles (2000). W. W. Norton, p. 1070-1071.)

There were nine Jewish generals and 21 Jewish colonels participating in the
war.

Judah Benjamin served as the second Confederate States Secretary of War and
Secretary of State. Before the Civil War, Benjamin was the first Jewish
Cabinet member in a North American government.
