Request re: ROMROD in Hesse #germany

wlfrank <wlfrank@...>
 

I received a request >from a local resident, Bernd RAUCH, of Romrod in Hesse
(see www.romrod.de ) interested in establishing contact with Jews who may
have a historical tie to that community.

Some local individuals of Romrod wish to renovate a former synagogue and create a
culture center (see http://www.romrod.de/Kultur/SynagogeII.php)
and are seeking historical data related to the once Jewish residents.

For more information, please contact Herr Rauch
at bernd.rausch.romrod@...

Posen, Prussia - BOF meeting / organization #germany

Barbara Siegel
 

Attention: All those with research interests in the area of Posen, Prussia.

A Posen,Prussia BOF has been scheduled for the NY2006 conference on
Wednesday, August 16 >from 9:30-10:45 A.M. The purpose of the meeting is
networking; sharing of research interests and rersources; an opportunity to
share successes, problems, etc.. We need to establish future goals,
communication vehicles and strategies, and develop an organizational
structure. This Posen,Prussia BOF group will NOT be limited to any regional
Posen section, but will include all of Posen, Prussia.

One of our first orders of business will be to construct a comprehensive
database of all those with interests in the area of Posen, Prussia. Past
efforts have had only limited success. In the interest of efficiency and
economy I am suggesting the following:

I would like for everyone who has research interests in this geographical
area to send me the following information *** in the body of the message** before
the Conference date,if possible.

1. I am/am not planning to attend the NY2006 Conference.
2. Your name.
3. E-mail address
4. Snail mail address
5. Tel.no.
6. Surnames being searched.
7. Town/s or Province in Posen,Prussia

I have a volunteer to make an Excel spreadsheet of this data, which hopefully
will then be ready to distribute to the attendees at the BOF. In any event, we
will already have a head start and can add new additions as they come in.

Please note, you do not have to be present at the NY Conference to have
your data on this database. But it will be very helpful to get a ballpark
idea of how many will be at the BOF so we can prepare enough copies, and
arrange for enough seating space.

Any additional ideas /suggestions are welcome. We would like to make this
BOF as successful as possible. I am also looking for someone to volunteer as
recording secretary at the session- any offers?

Same Paternal ancestor, different surnames #general

Steven Bloom <sbloom@...>
 

I was curious to see if anyone has had success in matching up distant
cousins with different surnames, but the same direct paternal ancestor
(i.e., same father's father's father, etc.).

Usually, someone such as this would have the same surname (or at least be
born with it) but I am speaking of the time period just when surnames were
only in rare use, but records were already being registered (such as in
Kingdom of Poland in early 19th century).

I will illustrate by example:

My 4th great grandfather is Jankel BLUMENZON, son of Aryeh and Blima, born
in late 18th century, and died in 1885. Through patronymic records (early
19th century records that usually refer to people just by name of father
and not a surname) I was able to find Jankel's marriage record, and that he
was originally >from a completely different town. Jankel was the first to
have the BLUMENZON surname (probably in honor of his mother or something
like that). So, what I am looking for is perhaps another sibling of Jankel
that obviously has the same patronymic information. Then through some hard
work and patience, eventually find this siblings family with the new
adopted surname.

I admit this is probably only doable with a database this is searchable by
many parameters, not just first or last name.
Just wondering if someone has had success. It could have some implications
for DNA genealogy in particular.
