What a good idea this new SIG!

I am sure my research is very difficult because I know quite nothing,
only the first name Hijman who arrived in Amsterdam probably already
married because no marriage has been found.

There he had at least 4 children: Emmanuel, Roosje, Michiel and Rejna
born between 1737 and 1754.

In some records he was called =93Dantziger=94 and in 1811, in Leiden,
the descendants of the two sons choose the name Van DANTZIG.

Is it possible to find a list of Jewish inhabitants in Dantzig at the
beginning of the 18th century?

Thank you for your answer(s)!

spelling of "koire" in yiddish and hebrew #lithuania

Ried Nathalie <nathalieried@...>
 

Hello,

My mother's father, >from Odessa, had the surname "KOIRE" (as in "baal
koire", reader of the Torah). I've seen it written in Russian but I'm
not sure of the spelling in Hebrew and Yiddish, I wonder for ex if the
last vowel would be rendered differently in Hebrew and yiddish (by an
ayin in yiddish maybe) and if the "i "added in the yiddish version (>from
kore to koire) is only pronounced or written as well. This question
arose because in some records the name was transcribed as "KOIRA"
whereas I'm sure that the "correct" version was KOIRE.

Thanks to all for your help.

As always, many very generous Genners took the time to respond to my query
and I am very grateful.

For those who might be interested:
The language is Czech.
Rabinat is Office of a Rabbi
Matricni Urad v Podivin is Register Office of Vital Records in Podivin, a
town in the Czech Republic.

Various sites were suggested and >from them I learned about the town of
Podivin; I received translation sites and a site which guesses languages,
quite rapidly and quite accurately I might add.

Once again, thank you one and all.

Graham,

Arthur Lourie was the Israel Ambassador to the Court of St James, and
to Canada at various times following the creation of the State. His
brother Norman, was the founder of Habonim SA at the beginning of the
thirties. I think these are the Louries to whom you are referring .

JewishGen welcomes the Danzig/Gdansk SIG #ciechanow #poland

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear Friends,
JewishGen is extremely pleased to announce the formation of the JewishGen
Danzig/Gdansk Special Interest Group (SIG), which will focus specifically on
Danzig -- now Gdansk, Poland -- including its precursor communities of
Altschottland, Langfuhr, Mattenbuden, Weinberg, and Danzig in der
Breitgasse, as well as Tiegenhof/Nowy Dwor Gdanski. The unique history of
this community and the exceptional survival of its records presents
a marvelous
opportunity for collaborative genealogical research under the JewishGen
umbrella.

If you have research interests in this area we urge you to join the Danzig
mailing list by visiting < http://lyris.jewishgen.org/listmanager >. We
also invite you to visit the website at <
http://www.jewishgen.org/Danzig >. where you will see that contributions
of family histories, memoirs, photographs, maps, and other material of
interest will be welcomed..

Details about SIG projects aimed at making Danzig genealogical resources
more accessible, will be available on the website in the very near
future. Stay tuned!

Our thanks to Logan Joseph Kleinwaks , Coordinator of the SIG and Elsebeth
Paikin, Moderator of the mailing list for taking a leadership role in
proposing and organizing this entire effort to add to the programs and
projects JewishGen provides. .

We hope you are also excited and will join us as we embark on a new era of
Danzig Jewish genealogical research. We also encourage anyone who has
interests in this area and the historical records which will ultimately
reside on JewishGen to volunteer to help with projects. Some projects
may require funding, and we would appreciate your support in the form of

TB Sanatoriums in New York State #general

Sandra and Donald Hirschhorn <sdh2381@...>
 

I suspect that one of my grandfathers had TB. He entered this country in
1921 and apparently died while in his 40's or early 50's sometime before
1930.

Since they lived in New York City and I have a photo of him in a bathrobe
taken outside I believe he may have gone to a TB hospital.

Does anyone know where I can find a list of such institutions and their
records?

Thank you.
