to the Cape of Good Hope as a settler. He has four children with very

Dr Baruk wrote "as I have long practised with success as Physician

He was fluent in Dutch and German. In the light of a surname that
seems close to Baruch, and biblical names of his family, was he Jewish
and did he eventually get permission to go to the Cape under the
assisted passage scheme?

I've just checked MD Nash: The Settler Handbook which I find pretty
reliable. Ralph Baruk, apothecary, apparently travelled in Parker's Party.
They were largely a mixture of Irish and Londoners who had already been
turned down by Bathurst.Could Ralph have been Raphael?

After my last posting on this topic, I realized that Ralph Baruk had come
out to South Africa with the Parker party and that they had settled in
Albany.

I contacted the Albany Museum and their resident genealogist there sent me
some wonderful bits of information relating to Ralph Baruk.

They stated the following:

1. He had joined the David Polley Francis group of families which was part
of the Parker party. David Polley Francis had originally been part of the
elder Baruk's initial efforts to come out to SA that failed to gain support.

2. Francis had returned to England at about the time that Baruk disappeared
from the records of the area. Francis returned again to SA and settled in
Port Elizabeth. It may be that Baruk returned with him to England and then
came back with him as well.

So, it is always good to contact the many small Museums that dot the South
African landscape as they may have unexpected information to help in your
research.

In a further effort to determine if the Baruk family were Jewish, I looked
in the book "Joodse Achternamen in Amsterdam, 1669 - 1850" which provides a
listing of Jewish family names >from that time period. I did not find the
Baruk surname there unfortunately.

More to come on this topic if I dig it up!!!!

Re: BARUK, 1820 Settler ?? #southafrica

There is a fascinating web site called the British 1820 Settlers to South
Africa Genealogy Web Site which can be reached at:

http://www.1820settlers.com/modules.php?name=Topics

As you will see, there are numerous documents relating to Settler Letters
and, amongst them, a series relating to Dr. Daniel Baruk.

There is also a listing for an actual settler, a Ralph Baruk, who was an
apothecary, born 1794, and who was part of the Parker party, sailing on the
ship East Indian. The Parker party settled in Drog Valley in the
Clanwilliam district and some moved to Albany.

As you can see >from the Daniel Baruk's letters, his eldest son was Raphael
or Ralph Baruk, an apothecary, age 19, in 1819.

No further mention on the site of the Daniel Baruk family as a whole as
being actual settlers, i.e., Danie Baruk, age 37, Mary Baruk, wife, age 36,
Samuel Baruk, age 17, Fanny Baruk, age 16, and Lewis Baruk, age 15.

http://www.1820settlers.com/modules.php?name=News&;file=article&sid=121

I did find a Daniel Baruk who is listed in the quarterly death registrations
for 1863 in Whitechapel. There is also a Selina Baruk who died in 1862 in
Whitechapel as well. I would assume if the death record could be obtained,
it would confirm whether this was the same Daniel Baruk or not.

In addition, there appears to be a birth of a Wolf Baruk in 1892 in St.
George in the East, London, Surrey. This actual record too could provide
information on the Baruk family and what happened to them.

Further research shows a Baruk family who went to California, one to New
York and one to Ontario. Possibly, these are not related, but the records
show that the families originally came >from England.

Funnily, the Baruk family does not appear in the available British Census
years beginning with 1841, although the vital records prove there were Baruk
individuals living in London.

Romania SIG Meeting at the IAJGS Conference - Tuesday, August 15th, 4:45 to 6:00pm, Olmstead Room #romania

Romania SIG Meeting at the IAJGS Conference
Tuesday, August 15th, 4:45 to 6:00pm in the Olmstead Room
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Romania-SIG will hold its annual meeting at the IAJGS
Conference on Tuesday, August 15th >from 4:45 to 6:00pm in the
Olmstead Room on the 7th floor of the Marriott Marquis Hotel, New York.

The ROM-SIG covers all of present-day Romania and the Republic
of Moldova, as well as the southwestern portion of Ukraine and southern
Hungary. This area includes the regions formerly known as Bukovina,
Bessarabia, Transylvania, and the Banat.

The main thrust of our work in 2005 was to enter more data into the
All-Romanian
database, including records >from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and the
LDS.
We have added chapters of the Pinkhas Hakehillot Romania to the Yizkor Book
site
and are working on adding books about the Jewish communities of Iasi and
Podu Iloaiei.
We are also working on the addition of cemetery data to JOWBR on JewishGen.

There will be testimonials provided by Renee Steinig and Simon Kreinder,
both of
whom just returned >from a reunion of over 50 native Czernowitzers held in
Chernivtsi,
Ukraine, in late May 2006. Developments in Romania research will be
discussed
and there will also be a question period.

We are also requesting that if you have records for surnames that others
in the group are researching, please bring copies to share with them.

We look forward to seeing everyone again and meeting "new" Romania-SIG
researchers who have not attended this group meeting before.

As Rosanne Leeson and Paula Zieselman, ROM-SIG coordinators, are not able
to attend the conference this year, the meeting will be run by Bruce Reisch
and
Merle Kastner.

If you have any questions about the Rom-Sig meeting, feel free to contact
us:

We are also requesting that if you have records for surnames that others
in the group are researching, please bring copies to share with them.

We look forward to seeing everyone again and meeting "new" Romania-SIG
researchers who have not attended this group meeting before.

As Rosanne Leeson and Paula Zieselman, ROM-SIG coordinators, are not able
to attend the conference this year, the meeting will be run by Bruce Reisch
and
Merle Kastner.

If you have any questions about the Rom-Sig meeting, feel free to contact
us:

Bruce Reisch bir1@nysaes.cornell.edu
Merle Kastner merlek@videotron.ca

Dear Group:

An old one-page letter, supposedly >from Rivke to her brother, is posted at
Viewmate - http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=8162 (A
fellow Genner has already written me that it is actually to a sister and
brother-in-law, though he has not translated the rest of the note or the
signature.)

All help will be greatly appreciated. Please write directly to me at
lulu_brooks@yahoo.com
