Re: Translation of Hebrew Text (written in Germany in 1735) Please #translation

jlevy2008@...
 

I think it's going take me a long time to learn the complexities of Hebrew.

Is it possible that נוספיף is simply a spelling mistake or an archaic spelling and the text should have read נוסף על ? What I find particularly confusing is that a google search throws up a few examples of the word with the incorrect spelling. But then one finds many examples of incorrectly spelt English words on the internet. 

Anyway, below is another snippet from the statues. This statue is in Yiddish and includes a couple of examples of a final ף and ן with elaborate flourishes.

This brick wall may connect to the brick wall i am trying to break down. If you would like to contact me I would be willing to share what I can.  The next two weeks are really busy but if you want to connect and follow up further later, we can.

Katzenellenbogen / Ariogala #rabbinic #lithuania

Jeremy Lichtman
 

One of my ancestors appears to have been a signatory of the 1764 and 1785 Poll Tax records for Ariogala.

He signed the 1785 record as:

Chackiel Yankielowicz - "thus sayeth R'Yekhezkel (Ezekiel), son of the high rabbi, R'Yakov (Jacob) (father deceased)."

The community of Ariogala was run from Kedainiai at that point in history, and the rabbinic offices were largely run by the Katzenellenbogen family (at least two of whom were also rabbis of Ariogala for periods of time).

I'm wondering if it is possible that the "high rabbi" Jacob could be referring to Rabbi Jacob Katzenellenbogen of Kedainiai (and later Altona). The only child I've seen listed anywhere is Rabbi Joel Katzenellenbogen, who took over in Kedainiai after his father moved to Altona.

Could Chackiel (Ezekiel) be another son, named after R' Jacob's father? Chackiel's oldest son, in turn, was named Jankiel (Jacob).

Does anyone know of any original sources I could check?

Well, it seems that you are looking for Obornik. In Obornik Administrative District along with Rogasen, Murowana Goslin and Ryczywol in Prussia. 

And, if you have his Unit or Regiment in the Civil War that would also be important in this discussion. At least the State where he enlisted.

Dear Avigdor Ben-Dov,

I started a Kehilalinks site for Dieveniskes several years ago and dealt with what you describe by creating a community wide family tree, which is just another database format, one that allows many variables and facts to be attached to any profile. As for the mention of unknown offspring (whether speculated or derived from a numerical accounting in a source) there is no reason not to include both so long as you clearly indicate the basis for the inclusion. For example, using a Levine surnamed family, you could establish a convention within your database that all children who are derived from a source (making sure to include the source in the profile) but whose names are unknown will be called UnknownM Levine or UnknownF Levine or simply Unknown Levine (if no gender is known). Conversely, if the offspring are based on statistical averaging you might use PlaceholderM Levine, PlaceholderF Levine, or simply Placeholder Levine.

Best Wishes,
Adam Cherson

I did research on my father's family. One of his first cousins married a man whose parents were from Stolpce.  The name was Russack.  No one is living would have any recollections, though I will check whether there are any pictures.  Just thought I'd mention it in case it's of any use to you....

My great-grandmother was Filipina LICHTENSTEIN. Her brother Robert's sons settled in Chicago and were known as Fred and George LANE.

Fred's children (according to geni) are: Peter LANE, Nancy LEAVITT, Larry LANE. 
I would like to get in contact with them or any surviving family and would be grateful for any leads.

I would also be pleased to hear from any other LICHTENSTEIN family to see if we can work out any connection.

Re: Simonia card? #yiddish #translation

Vered Dayan
 

As far as I can see the letters comprise a word that would be pronounced "simoine" [see-moy-ne]. Questions that can help: Perhaps it derives from an English word? An American name for some kind of a bank card? Wikipedia says that credit cards were "born" in the 1920s. Or perhaps there was a department store by a similar name? A calling card?

Hello,

She have been buried in the Orthodox cemetery, also known as "Granatos Street" – of course, since the Kozma Street Cemetery was Neolog.

Chevras HaMaggidim - Pressburg 5666 (1906) #rabbinic #austria-czech #photographs

Mordechai Perlman
 

     This photo is part of our family collection. It depicts a club of young unmarried rabbinic scholars that studied in the prestigious Yeshiva of Pressburg in 5666 (1906) and functioned as part of their club as preachers in the surrounding countryside. I have another two such photos. However, I am asking about this one because my great-grandfather, Rabbi Yoel Jakobovits, appears in it. Rabbi Jakobovits (father of Lord Rabbi Immanuel Jakobovits of England) was a Dayan and Rav in Berlin and post-1938 was a member of the London Beis Din. He appears in the back row, 3rd from the left. I believe his brother, my great-great-uncle Moritz (who later served as Dayan in the German-Jewish Kehilah of Washington Heights, NY) is standing in the same row, 2nd from left.

     I am wondering if anybody knows the identity of other members of this club that are depicted in the photo.
