Mount Zion Cemetery database #general

Sharon R. Korn <s.r.korn@...>
 

Thanks to Steve Lasky for announcing the Mount Zion Cemetery online
database. It is a terrific resource for finding burials. Having checked
some, I would just like to suggest that people not rely too much on the
exact date of death listed. It can be either the date of burial or, as in
one listed as 1800, an obvious typographical error. Nevertheless, it is
sure to be very useful.

DU RUPS / Convert, Neuchatel, Switzerland, 14th century #general

Justin Kirk Houser <jkhouser84@...>
 

Good morning, everyone,

I first want to thank everyone for the generous responses to my query on
translating Hebrew cemetery inscriptions in Clinton County, PA.

In my own personal research, I have traced one of my ancestral lines back
to an individual named Guillaume DU RUPS, born between 1350 and 1400 in
Canton Neuchatel, Switzerland. He was probably born at Auvernier and later
lived at La Sagne. Guillaume had the surname or title "Convert" appended
to his name. He was married to Jehanne Trost. When his daughter,
Perronette du Rups Convert (born ca. 1420) married Michele Barbier of
Valangin, he, too, took her surname Convert. The family continued as
Convert, eventually becoming Conver, and finally Confer and Confair in America.

The information on this family came >from records at La Sagne, kept by one
M. Ferrari, according to a cousin who went there and obtained what she
could, not being expert in genealogical research. The research was done
for one Samuel Monvert, an 18th century local notable, who changed the
spelling of his name >from Convert to Monvert.

My question: Why would Guillaume du Rups have been called Convert? My
research shows that there were Jewish communities in Neuchatel in the 12th
and 13th centuries. Could Guillaume have been of Jewish descent, and been
called "Convert" when he converted to the Christian faith? His descendants
became involved with local Roman Catholic Church activities, eventually
converting to the Protestant Church (Reformed) in the 1530s.

I would appreciate any insights >from anyone who has researched in this
area, or knows of any reason why the suffix Convert may have been given to
Guillaume du Rups and carried by his descendants as a surname.

help on 1890, 1900 and 1910 census HYMOFF and WASSERZUG at 29 Poplar St, Boston #general

Jenni Hymoff Koeppel
 

Hello again helpful fellow Genners:

we finally got my ggp's marriage application and on it, it says they
(Adeline Wasserzug and Israel Hymoff) were living at 29 Poplar St in Boston
in 1903. Since I had them at a totally different address in 1900, I'd
really appreciate somebody checking the 1890, 1900 and 1910 census for
Boston for that Poplar Street address to see who lived there then, and we
can see if there is any connection. We are checking all possibilities
because the surnames keep changing. So far it seems they swam into the US
at no specific place between 1879 and 1889 and suddenly appeared again in
1900.

If you could also check the 1890 census for WASSERZUG, we might find Adeline
again.

I live in Spain and have no possibility to visit a US library with access
to that data.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I am seeing in JRI-PL indices for Zareby Koscielne records as late as 1920.
Does this mean that the 100-year (if I remember correctly) waiting period
before release of archives has been changed? Or are these typos? The archive
itself is undated.

American Jewish year books #general

Errol Schneegurt
 

I am not sure if this has been posted already but its worth doing again.
I have been reading copies of the American Jewish Year Books for some time
now. They give a great cross section of what had affected the lives of Jews
through out the world. In the latest issue of Dorot they make mention of
website associated with the American Jewish Committee Archives.
www.ajcarchives.org
On this site there is a complete collection of the year books 1899-present.
If you ever wondered why the Jews of Russia ran to America read ">from
Kishineff to Bialystock" in the 1906 Jewish year book.
