Re: SCHENK / BOSCHAN(BOUCHON) / MODERN / LOEWINGER #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Judy Earnshaw (nee Wertheimer) of Sorrento, Western
Australia is updating her research interests on SCHENK;
BOSCHAN(BOUCHON); MODERN; LOEWINGER; WERTHEIMER;
WEINBERGER; SPECHT >from Bratislava Hungary.

Bratislava was called Pozsony [Hungarian] and
Pressburg [German] when it was the capital of Hungary
for many hundreds of years. Pressburg was part of the
Habsburg Empire. The town, now called Bratislava, is
the capital of the independent country of Slovakia.

There was an old-established Jewish community in
Pressburg and in 1736 120 Jewish families were living
in the town with a total Jewish population of approx.
600. They were mostly traders - mainly >from Germany
with others >from Poland, Bohemia and Moravia and
Vienna. After the enactment of the Familianten Laws in
Bohemia and Moravia in 1726, many second and
later-born sons left these territories and settled in
Hungary, where strangely, the laws were not enforced.
The Jewish population of Hungary and especially of
Pressburg and Budapest grew rapidly until eventually
80 percent of the Hungarian Jews were of Bohemian and
Moravian origin.

Many Pressburg families moved permanently to Vienna
after 1848. Indeed I know there is a *living link* to
Pressburg MODERN families - because I have met him and
sent him a copy of this mail. He has done a lot of
work on the MODERN family.

There are more than 300 WEINBERGER; over 200
WERTHEIMER; over 100 LOWINGER; abt 70 MODERN; abt 50
BOSCHAN; abt 40 SCHENK and abt 25 SPECHT buried in
Vienna. Some of these, I am sure were >from Pressburg.

So the bottom line is that if you are studying the
Jews of Pressburg - you disregard the Austria-Czech
SIG at your peril:

http://www.jewishgen.org/austriaczech/

I should know as three sets of my maternal
gtgt-grandparents [all born ca 1800 and whose roots
lay in Bohemia and Moravia], lived in Pressburg and
moved to Vienna shortly after 1848. The fourth set
came >from Bohemia.

Finding records in South Africa #general

Clive Budlender <clivebud@...>
 

I have a civil marriage certificate for Cessy Budlender and Celia Geringer
dated 31 January 1899, Cape Town. This came as a complete surprise to the
family as no-one knew Cessy was married before!
How can I find out what happened to Celia- the NAAIRS (South African
Archives) website has no reference to a divorce or a deceased estate.Where
else could I look? The Johannesburg Beth Din informed me they do not have
records going back that far.(should there have been a divorce)


He married his second wife, Gertrude, probably around 1905, but this record
too remains elusive.

Thank you,
Anne Budlender

KLEIN - GRIMM - LITTLE in Kussel, Zweibrucken, Germany #germany

Doug & Amber <dmahelms@...>
 

I am looking for information on the following:

Johann Henrich KLEIN
born:1704 in Zweibrucken, Germany
married to: Anna Margaretha GRIMM on 10/23/1729 in Kussel, Zweibrucken, Germany
died: 1810 in Adams, Pennsylvania

They had eight children:

Capt. Daniel LITTLE born 1731 in Kussel, Zweibrucken, Germany (my ancestor)
Johann Peter LITTLE born 9/16/1734 in Kussel, Zweibrucken, Germany
3 unknown LITTLEs born about 1736/1740/1742
Mary LITTLE born about 1744
Jacob KLEIN born about 1746
David LITTLE born about 1748
Henry LITTLE born about 1750

The parents carried the KLEIN name but it seems they changed all but one of
the children's names, maybe when they came to Pennsylvania? Any information
would be appreciated, I don't know if they are Jewish. Thank you,

New research tools from the LDS Family History Library #germany

A & B Algaze <Algaze@...>
 

As the librarian for the Los Angeles Jewish Genealogical Society of Los
Angeles I spend a lot of time at our local Family History Center. I have
been asked on numerous occasions whether (and when) the Salt Lake City,
Utah, based Family History Library will be converting their resources to CD
or digital format.

The latest "skinny" is that they are presently planning to convert all of
their microfilm collection to digital images. They have been working on it
since September of 2005 and they are presently projecting that they will
have the project completed in six years (more or less.) As the materials
are scanned, they will be put on their website for all of us to access.

In addition, they are also digitizing published family histories--starting
with those that are out of copyright. About 5,000 were on-line as of
September 1st and they are digitizing about 100 volumes per week.

The URI for this materials is www.lib.byu.edu

As the material goes on-line, they are creating links >from the material to
the digitized website. You can do a preliminary hunt by following these
directions:

1) Go to www.familysearch.org
2) Click on Family History Library Catalog (one of the tabs on the top of
the page)
3) Click on Author Search
4) Type in [for example] Potter, then Lucy
5) Click on Potter, Lucy Closson Austin
6) Click on the title
7) Scroll down to red, which says "To view a digital version of the this
book, click here."

You can search for names, photographs, maps, etc. in the BYU Digitalized
records at the following site:

http://contentdm.lib.byu.edu/cgi-bin/advsearch.exe

I hope this information is helpful in your research.

According to a Lubavitch website www.lchaimweekly.org/lchaim/5753/279.htm
the father of the former Lubavitcher Rebbe whose name was Levi was
affectionately known as "Leivik", so this is an affectionate name for Levi,
which is a Hebrew name. Levi was one of the sons of Jacob in Genesis.

This website contains information about the Jewish cemetery in Zweibrucken

www.alemannia-judaica.de/kus_ps_kl_zw_friedhoefe.htm.

Presumably if the family was Jewish there would be some record of a burial

The above website is in German, but it does give a contact in Zweibrucken
who you could presumably write to.

I recently found in the JGFF a lead to my ABELSON family, possibly from
Kolno, only to find out that the lead had died. I am most anxious to
contact her cousin as I can find no trace at all in jri-pl or anywhere
else for my Abelsons.

If you can do a look up of an address in Chicago, please contact me privately.

I'm looking for the family of Lewis and Eva (nee PERLMAN/PERLMUTER).
They were married in the Bronx in 1924, had a daughter Ruth born in 1927

per census).

Lewis' parents were Uscar and Dora (nee LIEBSTA) SCHOR >from Austria.

Eva's parents were Victor and Rachel (nee MUSZKATEL) PERLMAN/PERLMUTER

Eva's grandmother was born Cywa ZYLBERMAN and was the sister of my
