I mispelt VORARLBERG in my posting I just sent in.

Voralberg in the subject line and in line 4 of the text should read VORARLBERG.

Shalom ,friends,
I have read an essay written by Micheline Gutmann, named:"French resources for
Jewish Genealogy". I mailed her to get some answer ,but I got no connection.

I look for data about relatives of me,born in Germany,mooved to France and were
deported >from Darancy to Auschwitz.

My question is: what are the addresses of the Jewish communities in Paris and
Metz and may be other sources there.
Thank you in advance

Genealogical services in Russia #general

Dear genners:
Again, my apologies if this information is old news, but I came
across a Russian web site that offers services and products
that might interest some of you. Since I can't paste in their
summary in English (see below) of what they offer, I will say it
includes archival research, copying of archival documents,
examination of old photos, including uniforms, etc.
What led me to the site was that the Russian version lists for sale
what seems to be an extensive list of 18th and 19th Century maps of
many different regions. Of course all or most would be in Russian,
but really, it is time for some of you to sit down and learn to read
Cyrillic ;-) The following may be deleted by the management, but if
you google or amazon my name and the title "Reading Modern Russian"
you will find a grammar that gives the best presentation of the
alphabet that I know of. I used to teach it in 40 minutes. If I
could figure out how to do it, I would get a web page and put it on there.

Congratulations to Sylvia Nusinov #general

Sandra and Donald Hirschhorn <sdh2381@...>
 

I thought many of you would like to know about this.

Sylvia Furshman Nusinov, Boca Raton, Florida, USA, was one of ten
recipients presented a "Genealogy Outstanding Achievement Award" by the
Florida State Genealogical Society, " acknowledging many years of
accomplishments to help promote history and genealogy".
The awards were announced at the 30th Annual Conference of The Florida
State Genealogical Society held at the Crowne Plaza Melbourne Oceanfront
Hotel November 10-11, 2006.

Mrs. Nusinov, President Emerita of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Palm
Beach County, received the award in recognition of the Beginners and
Intermediate Genealogical Workbook. Compiled and edited by Mrs. Nusinov,
under the auspices of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Palm Beach County,
FL, the workbook, now in the seventh edition, is a compilation of
genealogical resource material useful to those engaged in genealogical
research.

Developed as a teaching aid for use in JGSPBCI Beginner's Workshops, the
Workbook will be used extensively during the February 28, 2007 all day
JGSPBCI MINI-CONFERENCE, to be held at the Jewish Community Center, Boca
Raton.

Revised and updated annually, the workbook currently covers 36 topics
including articles by renowned genealogists, instructions, forms, charts,
and references. It is an invaluable tool for researchers and is utilized by
genealogical societies throughout the world. In July 2003, in recognition of
her society's contribution to genealogy, the International Association of

Re: Regarding Last Name OLYAN #general

David Goldman
 

Greetings everyone. I was wondering if anyone had any observations regarding
the last name of OLYAN. My great-grandfather was Zvi-Hirsh, son of Moshe
Binyamin, Olyan, and coincidentally the name Olyan is almost the same as the
Russian and Ukrainian word for a deer, which is "olyen," and of course Zvi and
Hirsh mean deer in Hebrew and Yiddish.

Would this suggest that this family, which originated not in Ukraine, but in
Dabrowa-Byalistotska (now in Poland) near Grodno may have actually had the
last name of Hirsch going back into history and adopted a Russian name later
on, perhaps once Dabrowa fell under the Czarist empire?

All comments are appreciated.

Abraham MOSS, Kingston upon Hull ... 1861 onwards #general

Sue Houlston <sue@...>
 

Hi
I am hoping someone can help with what is a rather strange enquiry.

My great-great grandmother, Elizabeth Cooke, registered the birth of my
great-grandfather, Henry Barker Cooke, in 1867. She was an unmarried
woman but - apparently by some mistake - named the father of the child
as John Barker. The registrar then struck this out but it is
decipherable on the birth certificate.

The only fact I have about Elizabeth Cooke is that when the birth was
registered her abode was given as 16 Grimsby Lane, Hull. The 1861-71
censuses show the family living in the house were named Moss and the
head of the household was named as Abraham, wife Caroline, and he is
described as a lodging house keeper. Abraham Moss is listed on JewishGen.

One of the many mysteries about Elizabeth Cooke is why she should have
been boarding in that house and, perhaps importantly, who would have
been paying her rent.

My question is this. Would it have been normal for a Jewish boarding
house keeper to have taken in, perhaps, a pregnant unmarried Gentile
girl ? It seems rather unlikely. All the other boarders in the house
appear to have been Jewish immigrants. If it is not normal, then it
occurs to me that perhaps the father of the child, or perhaps Elizabeth
Cooke herself, was Jewish.

This is a long shot ... but my only line of enquiry since the names of
the parents are so common and I have no other facts about them save
those given on the birth certificate.

MOSS and ESCH{E}WEGE families of Hohenems, Voralberg and Hanau, Hessen #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Whilst looking for Abraham MOSS of Kingston-upon-Hull, UK in answer to a
question on the General Discussion Group today, I stumbled upon a unusual entry
in the 1861 England census. So here is a little diversion.

David MOSS is a Swiss muslin manufacturer who was born in Hohenems, Voralberg,
Austria in abt 1816. This is the first time I have seen Hohenems mentioned in
the England & Wales censuses. David's wife is Henrietta {aged 35} and the
children are: Louisa, Abraham & Caroline 10, 9 and 7 all born in Hohenems. The
other children are listed as born in England: Rosalie, Bertha and Gustavus.

The Moss family obviously arrived in England in the late 1850s. In the later
censuses, Rosalie is listed as born in Austria. Living with the family is
Soloman ESCHEWEGE aged 29, born in Hanau, Hessen, listed as a brother-in-law
and dealer in Colonial wares. There is also a cousin with an indecipherable
name born in Botzen in the Tyrol {now Bolzano, S Tyrol} - Hannah NOIX? aged 21.

So we do have a little family tree here with potential links to the three
listings for ESCHWEGE >from Germany in the JGFF and members of GERSIG perhaps?

I have written briefly about the Jews of Hohenems before [see the Austria-Czech
message archives Sept 2005]. I talked about the name changes following the
Josef II Toleranz Patent and we see a MOSES family listed here who changed
their names to REICHENBACH and MENZ. Abraham MOOS became Abraham REICHENBACH.

http://www.a-h-b.de/AHB/links_e.htm

Could David >from Islington be his son? MOSS would be a better name in England
than REICHENBACH. We can see the large MOSS family in the 1871 & 1881 censuses:

1871: David 55; Henrietta 45; Abraham 19; Carolina 18; Rosalie 16; Gustavus 11
born UK; Bertha 13 born UK; Leopold 9 born UK; Sophia 5 born UK.

1881 David 65; Henrietta 55; Abraham 29; Bertha 23; Gustav 21; Leopold 19;
Sophy [sic] 15.

Caroline and Rosalie must have married. But by 1891 the Hohenems family
has disappeared. Have the parents died or has the whole family emigrated
elsewhere or returned to Austria? Hohenems and environs did have a thriving
textile industry. Perhaps they returned there to continue in business, tired of
life in London and longing for the mountains of Austria?

As for brother-in-law Solomon ESCH{E}WEGE and cousin Hannah - I could not find
them either after 1861 in England. Were they also just passing through on the
way to a better life elsewhere? I wish I knew.

I have sent a copy of this mail to the Jewish Museum at Hohenems. You may enjoy
looking at their website: http://www.jm-hohenems.at/index.php?id=1&lang=1

Probably the most famous person emanating >from Hohenems was the cantor Salomon
SULZER [1804-1890]. The family name was originally LEVI/LOEWY:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salomon_Sulzer

Celia Male [U.K.]

Footnote: you will not find David MOSS listed under Austria in the 1861 census
of England and Wales. He appears mysteriously under "Hohenems Voralberg,
Cheshire, England." You will also not find cousin Hannah listed under Botzen
or Bolzano, Tyrol because that is indexed as "Boken Tywl Amtrin"

Surely these are two of the most garbled transcription errors ever!
