Thanks for your note. I have looked at TRUPP as a possible variant but, in
10 years of research, I have not found any solid link between any of the
TRUPP families (many >from Vitebsk guberniya) and my TRUPIN bunch.

It is difficult to ascertain if these are really variant names, as well.
TRUPIN, according to Beider, is a toponym derived >from the town name "Trupy"
(there are at least three possible towns "Trupy"). I find through the
JewishGen discussion list archive, on the other hand, that TRUPP has many
different possible origins, including derivation >from the "trop" cantilation
notes used for chanting Torah. So, it's hard to say.

Thank you for sending this Swedish TRUPP link, however. I shall tuck it
away for possible use in future research.

That is all that I've found in Denmark (going through my own and the

TREPIN would be a new variant; but it is definitely something I shall
pursue. The main branches of the family we've documented thus far have all
lived in/around Daugavpils in the mid-1800s (when Martin TREPIN was born in
Riga); but that does not preclude some of the family living in Riga also.
Several branches did move >from Daugavpils to Riga around the turn of the
century, whence some then immigrated to England/Scotland and others to the
U.S.

I appreciate having this information, and will begin to dig deeper to find
more on TREPIN in Denmark. This certainly proves the point that lists are
of value. My special thanks to you, also, for managing the list so we all
may benefit.

Dear Donna and all others,

In my files about Jewish families >from Vitebsk guberniya that imigrated
to Scandinavia there is a family named TRUPP. Could it possibly be the
same family as your TRUPIN family?

The family consists of:

Fanja TRUPP, married to Elje TUDER, who had at least one son together:

Nachum aka Nochum Eljew TUDER, born 1888 in Vitebsk (not sure whether
it's in the city of Vitebsk or just anywhere in Vitebsk guberniya),
died 1951 in Stockholm, Sweden. Nachum in turn was married to
Chaia Lea Mowschowna KAPLAN (born 1889 in Pskov, Russia, died 1975
in Stockholm, Sweden).

If you think these people might be related to you, it is certainly possible
to get in touch with descendants of Nachum Tuder.

Connecting to the TaZ and R' Yitzhak Segal CHARIF #rabbinic

Reuven Chaim Klein <rachack@...>
 

For quite some time now, I have known that my gggg-grandfather,
Rabbi Binyamin Eliezer Ungar-Auerbach of Krakow (father of Rabbi
Reuven Chaim Klein wrote the Shenos Chaim) married the daughter
of Rabbi Ya'akov HaLevi >from Wolbrom. Rav Ya'akov HaLevi was the
brother of Rav Yosef Lichtig/Charif HaLevi. The brothers were in
turn sons of Rabbi Tzvi Hirsch HaLevi, who was a direct male
descendant of Rabbi Dovid Segal HaLevi, the TaZ (Turei Zahav).

For some time I have been looking for the exact line of connection
between Rav Tzvi Hirsch HaLevi and his direct male ancestor the TaZ.
I have yet to get the exact line of lineage. However, I recently
found out that the MaHaRSHA (who lived in the same era as the TaZ
and was also a Levi) had a son-in-law named Rabbi Yitzchack Segal
Charif HaLevi. I was wondering if this son-in-law of the MaHaRSHA
had anything to do with the line which I am trying to trace here.

in my family's genealogy project.)

Else Nebenzahl's Yom Kippur card. #poland

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

NEBENZAHL is not a family name I am familiar with, but
I did a quick check on our message archives and there
are two references to the name; Georg Gaugusch tells
us that Josef NEBENZAHL was a Jewish fabric dealer
from Ungvar [Hungary] in 1874. Charles Mahler of
Antwerp writes that there is a grave in Krakow bearing
that name.

My ignorance is further exposed by the fact that there
are 20 entries in the JGFF for this name - with
enquiries >from Ecuador, Belgium, USA, Brazil and
Israel. Furthermore if you look at the "Letter to the
Stars" site [holocaust victims >from Austria] you find
the Austrian victims were >from Tarnopol, Tarnow, Novy
Sacz and Drohobycz. The Galician origins of many
NEBENZAHL is confirmed by the Zentralfriedhof, Vienna
database, where you will find 18 NEBENZAHL burials.

Looking at the Yad Vashem site you find 175 entries -
including many Pages of Testimony. There is a Belgian
link with genealogical data which may be useful. This
was submitted by the victim's son very recently. Many
victims were >from Krakow as well as Slovakia [Kosice].

What sparked my interest in NEBENZAHL? Because you can
see a rather fascinating card dated ca 1900 signed by
Else NEBENZAHL. She sends the Yom Kippur card
[probably >from Vienna] in neat Kurrent handwriting to
?: http://tinyurl.com/rksyz

The card {in Hebrew} wishes *good signing* in the Book
of Life. This proves, once again, that ephemera can be
a valuable aid/catalyst to genealogical research. Else
is immortalised with the Yom Kippur card she sent,
but, how I wish she and her family could be reunited
after 105 years!

pay for the indexing of records for your town.

Please remember, JRI-Poland is a totally independent 501(c)3
organization with our own management, volunteers and fundraising.
Our principal source of funds are donations made by you -- the researchers.

Because new (later) records become available for almost every town each
year or two, there is an ongoing need for funds. Please contribute to
the indexing of records for your town.

Should you have any questions about making donations to JRI-Poland,
please contact the Archive Coordinator/Town Leader for your town. Go
to the JRI-Poland PSA project page at www.jri-poland/org/psa/status.htm

Or write to MatchingGifts@... for more information about
making a donation.

To all researchers have generously contributed over the years, thank
you. We look forward to your ongoing support.

Executive Director


Re: Muizenberg Cemetery #southafrica

a Cape Town man, Boris Friedman has been employed by the Chevra Kaddisha and
the Jewish community and is cataloguing all the graves in Pinelands, with
the aim of then doing this in Maitland, and then anywhere else. It is a
huge task and unless someone offers to do the whole job of cataloguing and
photography I think it will be a long time before Muizenberg is done.

Dear Beryl,

When I was last at the Muizenberg cemetery (about 15 years) ago, I
remember it being securely closed. Anyone wishing to perform this request
should first contact the shul offices to arrange for it to be opened.

On a more serious note, we really need someone >from Cape Town to a list of
the burials in the Muizenberg cemetery, preferably on the lines of the
JOWBR template. Maybe a Muizenberg shul official could assist us with a
basic list of the burials.
