About 56,000 new scans of a wide variety of documents >from the Lodz

Viewmate: Concerning the RUSS family of Boryslav - translations in Polish & German #galicia

David Scriven
 

This is an abbreviated repost of my query to JewishGen of Friday 26th
September to which I received no replies, so I'm trying again in this
more focused forum.

My great-grandfather Dawid RUSS lived in Boryslav - the 1926 marriage
records show he had a brother:

Extracts >from David & Jakob's records (in Polish) at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM69600

The parents appear to be Elo/Ela (I'm not sure which) and Chaji Russ.
Dawid's son-in-law's autobiography calls Dawid's father Eli (trans. >from
Hebrew).

There is an 1894 marriage record of a woman I suspect is their sister:

Extract >from Cipre Pessel records (in German) at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM69601
where the parents are Elias Russ and Chaje Pressburger.

So could Ela/Elo be Eli or Elias? I think so, my cousin does not, which is
why I'm asking the group. There is other evidence -- birth dates
clustered together, Dawid and Jakob as witnesses on the birth records
of Cipre Pessel's children -- that suggest they were related.

David Scriven,
Vancouver, B.C.

Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Viewmate: Concerning the RUSS family of Boryslav - translations in Polish & German #galicia

David Scriven
 

This is an abbreviated repost of my query to JewishGen of Friday 26th
September to which I received no replies, so I'm trying again in this
more focused forum.

My great-grandfather Dawid RUSS lived in Boryslav - the 1926 marriage
records show he had a brother:

Extracts >from David & Jakob's records (in Polish) at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM69600

The parents appear to be Elo/Ela (I'm not sure which) and Chaji Russ.
Dawid's son-in-law's autobiography calls Dawid's father Eli (trans. >from
Hebrew).

There is an 1894 marriage record of a woman I suspect is their sister:

Extract >from Cipre Pessel records (in German) at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM69601
where the parents are Elias Russ and Chaje Pressburger.

So could Ela/Elo be Eli or Elias? I think so, my cousin does not, which is
why I'm asking the group. There is other evidence -- birth dates
clustered together, Dawid and Jakob as witnesses on the birth records
of Cipre Pessel's children -- that suggest they were related.

Yizkor Book Project, September 2018 #galicia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

[MODERATOR NOTE: Please see especially the references below to these
communities, formerly in Galicia: Borshchiv and Ozeryany, Ukraine;
Dubiecko, Dynow, Przemysl, and Tarnow, Poland]

Shalom,

Without a doubt, September was definitely a record month for the Yizkor
Book Project. An important element behind this notable accomplishment,
is the people who prepare the web pages - Max Heffler and Jason
Hallgarten, who after their normal work day and other life activities
regularly manage to find some spare time to prepare and update a
multitude of pages each month. For their persistence and dedication, we
are truly indebted.

And if we are talking about dedication, I wish to note Lukasz Biedka's
coordination of the Przemysl Yizkor book over many years, which in this
past month bore fruit - the complete translation of this Yizkor book. I
send out my grateful thanks to Lukasz, who with the close collaboration
with professional translator, Jerrold Landau, together brought about
this lofty achievement.

At last count, we had 152 books that have been completely translated
within the Yizkor Book Project or include English books that were
generously donated to our project. Each month, the number in this list
continues to grow and I am certain that coming months will see more
and more of these projects completed. As always, if you are able to
financially support any of our ongoing translation projects to help us
realize our goals, bringing benefit to many, please see the link to our
JewishGen-erosity page at the end of this report.

Last month, we also saw the addition of another book published through
the auspices of the Yizkor Books in Print Project. The book I am
referring to is the "Memorial Book of Radzivilov" which is a translation
of the Yizkor book for the community of Radyvyliv, Ukraine. The talented
people in this project continue to devote time, after their usual life
commitments, to thoughtfully and carefully prepare the hard copy
versions of books that we have completely translated into English and
we do owe them our grateful thanks. For information about the books
available for purchase, please see the link at the end of this report.

And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out during
September:

We have added in one new book:

- Dubiecko, Poland (Dubyetsko)

Re: Meaning of "rentier" in 1890s Bucharest #romania

MODERATOR'S NOTE: When replying to a message >from the digest, please remember
to update the subject line. Thank you!
Hello,

In french, language widely spoken and used in Romania in the 19th
century the word "rentier" means a person who lives on interests of a
capital.So it can be indeed a pensioner or a person who lives on rents
of houses etc

1. Meaning of "rentier" in 1890s Bucharest
2. Fwd: re: New Cemetery in Cluj-Napca

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Subject: Meaning of "rentier" in 1890s Bucharest
From: Bob Friedman <rjf@stepstothepast.com>
Date: Wed, 26 Sep 2018 18:24:10 -0400
X-Message-Number: 1

I am trying to understand what Bucharest city directories >from the 1890s mean
by the term "rentier," which is seemingly used as an occupation. The main
interpretation suggested by Google Translate is
"annuitant," i.e., someone who is collecting an annuity, which I imagine would
be similar to a "pensioner" or "retiree." An alternate suggestion is
"independent gentleman," which sounds like it might be a property owner who
collects rents.

Anyone have a definitive answer?

Thanks,

Hi Reuven, thanks for this information.
I was also in Cluj this summer, but could not visit the cemetery.

I check and find out that the Jewish Cemetery in Cluj-Napoca is also
tagged in BillionGraves
https://billiongraves.com/cemetery/Cimitirul-Israelit/234632 Here you
can see a few images of the cemetery and it looks like is in good
shape like others I visited in the area, like the Gherla Jewish
cemetery
https://billiongraves.com/cemetery/Gherla-Jewish-Cemetery-Strada-Sf%C3%A2ntul-Anton/312423
This one I manage to photograph complete -261 photos- and now is being
transcribe by people able to read and write Hebrew you are all more
than welcome to help.

Back to Cluj, if you have photos of this cemetery, feel free to upload
them to BillionGraves so other people could transcribe them
https://billiongraves.com/cemetery/Cimitirul-Israelit/234632 If you
need help with this I will be more than happy to assist. Maybe we can
have someone local to visit and take more -or all- graves there.

I also noticed that someone posted in BillionGraves records >from the
cemetery -probable >from the care taker. I have upload them to
transcribe at https://csindexing.com/projectinformation.php?p=3D47
Although not great images, and clearly only 2 >from many others, I will
try to contact the people I meet in Cluj to get more images but if
anyone out there know or have this images would love to make them
available for transcription and then upload the result records to
JewishGen.

Best regards
Daniel Horowitz

Dear RomSiggers.
I visited the new cemetery in Cluj-Napoca last week.
By the data I found in JOWBR I looked for this cemetery at 116 Clea Turzi=
i.
At this address I found an old and inactive Jewish cemetery, but not the
new Jewish
cemetery. The new Jewish cemetery is at 154/156 Calea Turzii as can also
be seen
in the picture posted in JOWBR

Hello,

In french, language widely spoken and used in Romania in the 19th
century the word "rentier" means a person who lives on interests of a
capital.So it can be indeed a pensioner or a person who lives on rents
of houses etc

1. Meaning of "rentier" in 1890s Bucharest
2. Fwd: re: New Cemetery in Cluj-Napca

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Subject: Meaning of "rentier" in 1890s Bucharest
From: Bob Friedman <rjf@stepstothepast.com>

I am trying to understand what Bucharest city directories >from the 1890s mean
by the term "rentier," which is seemingly used as an occupation. The main
interpretation suggested by Google Translate is
"annuitant," i.e., someone who is collecting an annuity, which I imagine would
be similar to a "pensioner" or "retiree." An alternate suggestion is
"independent gentleman," which sounds like it might be a property owner who
collects rents.

Anyone have a definitive answer?

Thanks,

Hi Reuven, thanks for this information.
I was also in Cluj this summer, but could not visit the cemetery.

I check and find out that the Jewish Cemetery in Cluj-Napoca is also
tagged in BillionGraves
https://billiongraves.com/cemetery/Cimitirul-Israelit/234632 Here you
can see a few images of the cemetery and it looks like is in good
shape like others I visited in the area, like the Gherla Jewish
cemetery
https://billiongraves.com/cemetery/Gherla-Jewish-Cemetery-Strada-Sf%C3%A2ntul-Anton/312423
This one I manage to photograph complete -261 photos- and now is being
transcribe by people able to read and write Hebrew you are all more
than welcome to help.

Back to Cluj, if you have photos of this cemetery, feel free to upload
them to BillionGraves so other people could transcribe them
https://billiongraves.com/cemetery/Cimitirul-Israelit/234632 If you
need help with this I will be more than happy to assist. Maybe we can
have someone local to visit and take more -or all- graves there.

I also noticed that someone posted in BillionGraves records >from the
cemetery -probable >from the care taker. I have upload them to
transcribe at https://csindexing.com/projectinformation.php?p=3D47
Although not great images, and clearly only 2 >from many others, I will
try to contact the people I meet in Cluj to get more images but if
anyone out there know or have this images would love to make them
available for transcription and then upload the result records to
JewishGen.

Best regards
Daniel Horowitz

Dear RomSiggers.
I visited the new cemetery in Cluj-Napoca last week.
By the data I found in JOWBR I looked for this cemetery at 116 Clea Turzi=
i.
At this address I found an old and inactive Jewish cemetery, but not the
new Jewish
cemetery. The new Jewish cemetery is at 154/156 Calea Turzii as can also
be seen
in the picture posted in JOWBR
