Danzig surname adoption list, 1814 #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I am pleased to announce that the list of surnames adopted by Jewish
citizens in Danzig in 1814, when Prussia reoccupied the city, is now online
in the Articles section of our SIG website www.jewishgen.org/danzig.
Judging >from your JewishGen Family Finder entries, many of you can find
surnames you are researching on this list.

As noted in the Notes column of this list, three of these people had the
same pre-surname names (i.e., given name + patronymic) as Danzig Jews who
attended the Leipzig fairs during the 1750s and 1760s. The surnames they
adopted in 1814 are LEWISOHN, LILIENTHAL, and REYMANN. Hopefully, we will
be able to prove or disprove these connection based on our future research.

I will soon be posting additional identifying information about some of
these people, such as their possible relationships to people named in
inscriptions on objects >from Danzig that are in the collection of the Jewish
Museum in New York. If you have additional identifying information about
anyone on this list, please contact me.

Some of you have asked about my connection to Danzig. My gggggf is number
429 on the surname adoption list, [Rabbi] Gerson Naphtali NATHAN.

Best regards and Shabbat Shalom,

Visiting Romania and Hungary #romania

Stephen R. Low <steve.low@...>
 

I will be visiting Iasi and Satu Mare (formerly Szatmar, Hungary), Romania
in June. Around Szatmar, I want to travel to two smaller, nearby towns:
Seini (once Szinervaraljá, Hungary) and Halmeu (once Halmi, Hungary). My
maternal grandmother, Anna (nee WITTNER) Lando was >from Iasi. Seini was the
purported origin of my paternal grandfather, known in the U.S. as Sander
LOW; Halmi was the purported origin of my paternal grandmother, Louise (nee
SCHWARTZ) LOW.

Regrettably, I speak only English. I wonder whether any list members can
provide advice on the following:

1. A modest-cost place to stay in Iasi and Satu Mare (or either of those two
smaller towns I mentioned). If possible, I would prefer a bed/breakfast or
guest house.

2. The best means for traveling form Iasi to Satu Mare on land. I would
certainly consider renting a car if that's not overly adventuresome. In Satu
Mare, I would especially like to have the flexibility afforded by a rental
car.

3. Because of the language barrier, I have little hope of researching any
records that might shed light on these or other ancestors, but suggestions
on what to look for and where would be welcome.

4. The desirability of finding a translator or guide to accompany me during
my visit.

5. Any English-speaking "contacts" in the places I'm visiting.

6. Suggested sightseeing (Jewish and non-Jewish) while in the area.

7. A suggestion on the best way to travel >from Satu Mare to Budapest.

I'm somewhat flexible in my stay: At present, I would arrive in Iasi on a
Tuesday; depart on Friday for Satu Mare; and leave Satu Mare for Budapest
the following Thursday.

My time and capabilities are limited, but if there's any help I can offer to
anyone on the list during my visit, please let me know.

Researching:

LOW >from Satu Mare/Seini, Romania (i.e., Szatmar/Szinervaraljá, Hungary) to
New York

SCHWARTZ >from Halmeu, Romania (I.e., Halmi, Hungary) to New York

WITTNER >from Iasi, Romania to New York; Manchester, England; Australia

LANDO/LANDA/LANDAU >from Kiliya, Ukraine and/or Kishinev to New York and
Palestine

Please send replies to me privately. Thank you for any assistance.

Help needed in quest fo relatives in the US #belarus

Gregory Engels
 

I have recieved a foto taken in the late sixties or early seventies
in Moscow or Minsk, UdSSR.
It shows my grand parents with some relatives. The man on the
left is a visitor >from America and his name may be GORDIN or GORDON.
But this is not so sure - my grandgrandmother was Basia Gordin and
she had 10 sisters and one brother who emigrated to America till
the twenties >from Belarus.

So the man on the photo is reconed to be that brother of my ggmother,
but he hardly looks older then my grandfather, so I think, he might be
a son of one of the 10 sisters, and then his name wold be not GORDIN

I have posted the photo on viewmate as VM7821

Vitaly Charney article on Minsk budget #belarus

Nordell, Larry <lnordell@...>
 

I was fascinated by Vitaly Charney's article on the Minsk 1877 budget, =
for what it showed about the things the city was doing that are similar =
and those things very different than what we expect >from a municipal =
government today. It was interesting that almost a quarter of their =
budget was related to housing military!

I dug around on the internet and found that the ruble was then worth 18 =
grams of silver, and in 1877 the average price of silver in the US was =
$1.212. At 28 grams/ounce, that translates into 1 Ruble =3D $0.63, so =
the total budget was about $67,000. The inflation index (GDP deflator) =
from 1877 to 2005 is 17.92, making the budget approximately $1.2 million =
in current purchasing power.

The generosity of others #general

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings,

I hadn't mentioned this when I posted the announcement yesterday about my
latest virtual (online) exhibition "Windows in Time," but the exhibition
could not have been created without the generosity and hard work of Merle
Kastner of Montreal, Canada. It was her grandfather Henry Nathanson who took
these some one-hundred and forty photographs during his travels of Europe
and the Middle East in 1913. It took a great deal of time to search for,
organize and scan these many photographs and I am grateful to Merle for her
efforts.
I must say this to all of you who have so far contributed material to my
virtual museum. Without your desire to honor and perpetuate the memories of
your ancestors, it would not have been possible for me to create and develop
my website to the point where it is today. I am grateful to you all. Thank
you so much.

Best regards,

Dr. Ralph Bloch to speak on mohel book from Huerben in Bavarian Swabia #germany

HJB <hjb@...>
 

Jewish genealogists have access to few primary genealogical sources. Where
they do exist, Mohel Books - or circumcision registries - provide a valuable
window into the fabric of Jewish society in times past.

Unfortunately, few Mohel Books have survived the Holocaust, and even fewer
are publicly available. Obviously, they only list male children.

For the rural community of Huerben in Bavarian Swabia, Germany, the
transcript of a Mohel Book covering the period >from 1800 to 1837 is
available at the Leo Baeck Institute Archives in New York.

Ralph Bloch will describe what he found while he worked his way through
this document.

CWITAWA? #poland

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Help please -

I have recently found an Ellis Island record for a husband and wife who
claim they came >from Cwitawa Poland, on the actual shipping manifest it
says Petkamien/Patkemien.

Searching Shtetl Seeker I cannot connect the two places - any ideas?

Perhaps Podkamien?

I am stumped.

Any suggestions gratefully appreciated.

Thank you
