Re: Help Request For Cemetery Photos in Pittsburgh #ukraine

Harriet Hoffman
 

Hi all,

I would like to tell you that the digests really work. In fact, they are
amazing. Just a couple of days ago I requested help in obtaining photos of my GG
parents graves/tombstones in Pittsburgh. The flood of emails replying to
help was overwhelming.

Within two days...just two days...the photos were waiting for me when I got
up, always many hours behind all of you, on my computer. After the 'shock and
awe' and drying up the tears I communicated with this wonderful individual
who continued to help in translating the Hebrew on the stone revealing my GG
parents parent's names. That would be my GGGP's, right?

This individual in Pittsburgh had not seen the digest message directly, but
rather had it forwarded >from a friend in Jerusalem. His mother, who lives in
Florida, and had the message sent to her >from a friend in the LitvakSIG, sent
me advice and also mentioned it to her son. When the mother heard that the
connection had been made she called me. We have many mutual friends through
Jewishgen and the SIGS and will meet at conference in NYC.

Genealogy may be about discovering our ancestors, but along the way we meet
family and make lasting true friendships sharing the lives that we live now.
Mike Karsen, genealogist and lecturer, gives seminars on just this..."the
higher calling of genealogy."

Thank you all for your outpouring of support. It feels very good.

First names in Bohemia {was Joseph II's Name Edict of 1787} #austria-czech

Paul King wrote: <Regarding the posting of Henry Wellisch 27 July
2006) on Joseph II's "Jewish family and first name decree" of 1787, I
wish to add that one source states that the list for first names was
restricted to 110 for males and 30 for females.

I lack the specific reference but it appears in "Jahrbuch der
Gesellschaft fur Geschichte der Juden in der Cechoslov Republik",
probably in an article on Jewish names by A. Roubik. No source or
further information was given.

I concur with Mr. Wellisch - the decree was one thing; its
implementation was another. In part, this was because the decree was
centrally initiated and locally implemented.>

We have an excellent cross-check to see if the decree was implemented
and I conclude it probably was not in many cases. In the Bidshover
Kreis, Bohemia in 1793 there were about 90 male and about 70 female
first names. If you add in the variant first names ***in this Kreis
alone*** [and there are 15 other Kreis plus Prague to check through],
the numbers rise to about 130 and 87 respectively.

And here, at random, are some oddities - could they really be on the
list?

Male: Dobias, Faltin, Hartig, Isoph, Jabka, Maudel [umlat U], Marias,
Noe, Pestl, Sachar, Walenin, Wenedig, Witt.

Female: Apolonia, Frona, Gogele, Krisel, Lisetka, Pollexina,
Semeramet

Rarities I have seen in other Kreis are:

Male: Airum, Chain, Fridrig, Habakuck, Honig, Kanter, Peningnaim,
Scheuer,

Female: Chelau, Cheyla, Englin, Famala, Kaile, Miel, Perl

Significantly, these odd names for the girls appear mainly amongst
the maids. Perhaps they were their real names and/or the names used
by their employers instead of their official names imposed on them.
Hence, in the census, the employers just entered the names they were
known by everyday.

I conclude that then as now, parents called their children whatever
they wanted. We all know that the girls' first names in the Bohemian
records tend to change >from record to record. Perhaps this is because
**only** 30 official names [Anna, Barbara, Elisabeth, Eva, Karolina
Katharina, Ludmilla, Libuscha, Maria, Rachel, Rosalia, Sara,
Theresia, Veronica etc] were imposed on them, but they really had
other names "en famille".

This does not happen to the men however, where the name remains the
same.

Celia Male [U.K.]

PS: I have discussed a few existing "name change" lists I have
researched on this form before. I do have another for Moravia as well
- which I will search for. These Moravian lists were held by the
Schutzherren, so they could identify the tenants they knew before by
other names. I believe most now reside in the Brunn and Prague
archives and probably some other regional archives. There are a few
name change lists in the Hugo Gold volumes and one or two are on our
own website. We will have to gather them all together and index the
ones we know about.

Austrian Films at the IAJGS Conference #austria-czech

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

The IAJGS conference is screening two excellent films with Austrian themes,
both focusing on life in Vienna during the years leading up to WWII, but
anyone with an interest in the resilience and optimism of youth in the face
of unspeakable horrors -- and how these character traits serve one well
throughout life and on to a vibrant old age--will find these films
especially touching.

Although the stories of Max Birnbach (in "Vienna") and the young women of
Hakoah swim team ("Watermarks") begin in the 1930s, these films follow them
to the present day....documenting the countries they came to call home and
the inspiring lives they continue to lead. You won't want to miss these
films!

WATERMARKS

Monday, August 14 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
Tuesday, August 15 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
- Director, Yaron Zilberman, will introduce the film
Thursday, August 17 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

The story of the champion women swimmers of the legendary Jewish sports
club, Hakoah Vienna. Hakoah (meaning "Strength" in Hebrew) was founded in
1909 in response to the notorious Aryan Paragraph, which forbade Austrian
sports clubs >from accepting Jewish athletes. Hakoah rapidly grew into one of
Europe's biggest athletic clubs, while achieving astonishing success in many
diverse sports. In the 1930s Hakoah's best-known triumphs came >from its
women swimmers, who dominated national competitions in Austria. After the
Anschluss, in 1938, the Nazis shut down the club, but the swimmers all
managed to flee the country before the war broke out, thanks to an escape
operation. Sixty-five years later, director Yaron Zilberman meets the
members of the swimming team in their homes around the world, and arranges
for them to have a reunion in their old swimming pool in Vienna, a journey
that evokes memories of youth, femininity, and strengthens lifelong bonds.
Told by the swimmers, now in their eighties, the chronicle is about a group
of young girls with a passion to be the best. It is the saga of seven
outstanding athletes who still swim daily as they age with grace. Directed
by Yaron Zilberman

IN VIENNA THEY PUT YOU IN JAIL: THE MAX BIRNBACH STORY

Wednesday, August 16 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

In 1938 Vienna, anti-Semitism was at its peak. Hitler’s army was threatening
Austria’s border and Max Birnbach knew that he would have to flee Austria or
risk certain death as a Jew. This video investigates this dark time in
history, chronicling the remarkable story of Max Birnbach—including his
imprisonment by the Nazis, a dramatic escape to the Swiss border, life in a
refugee camp, the futile efforts to save his parents >from deportation to the
concentration camps, and the remarkable meeting that made possible his
emigration to America—revealing the sharp instincts Max used to survive, the
tragedy he had to leave behind, and the life-affirming courage and tenacity
he still demonstrates today, in his nineties. Directed by Cheryl Blaylock

Yaron Zilberman will also be a panelist at the "Visual Storytelling: The
Genealogical Documentary" program on Wednesday, August 16th at 7:30PM.

Aufbau Indexing Project Site Cite #austria-czech

The Aufbau Indexing Project (AIP) has been discussed mostly on GerSig
in the past few years but is also relevant for the Austria-Czech SIG.
Aufbau was a paper published by and for exiled German-speaking Jews
living around the world. Its first issue appeared in 1934. In about
1940 Aufbau began to print announcements of births, bar/bat mitzvahs,
engagements, marriages, and deaths. If your ancestors were
German-speaking, this was the paper in which they most
likely placed these important notices as the information would reach
relatives and friends now scattered around the world.

To date more than 27,000 announcements have been indexed. If you would
be interested in searching the initial results please visit the AIP
web site:

http://www.calzareth.com/aufbau/

The only caution is that the entries have not yet been proofread so there may
still be a few misspellings or dates that are incorrectly formatted or
missing. One option for searching is by place of origin. Searching for
Wien and Vienna results in about 1450 matches. Place names were not
translated so one must conduct two searches if a place has a different
name in English.

Hello everyone!
I have just read in the British Press that at long last an agreement between
the German, American and Israeli governments has been signed thus opening
for research the whole of records kept under lock and key this far.

As I have been trying to find what did happen to my Grandmother who
disappeared in thin air after her arrest in Bologna, Italy in November 1943
and having sent various written requests to the Red Cross and also to Bad
Arolsen direct, I wonder what will be the conditions, "modus operandi" to
access these records.

Has anything transpired or already acted on, on your side of the pond?
