Re: GOLDMANN, FRIEDLANDER: Upper Silesia to South Africa #germany

Roger Lustig <trovato@...>
 

Adam:
FRIEDLAENDER is one of the most common surnames in Silesia--67 entries
in the 1812 citizenship register out of about 4,000 total. Any further
information would help immensely.

Also, Breslau isn't in Upper Silesia. Depending on definition, it's in
Lower or Middle Silesia, as well as being the capital of all of Silesia.

The 1812 register has two FRIEDLAENDERs in Beuthen and 11 in Breslau.

There were 8 GOLDMANN families in this register, incl. one in Breslau
and one in Klukowitz, Kreis Beuthen. Also one in Myslowitz, which soon
after was assigned to Kr. Beuthen.

3 of the remaining 5 GOLDMANNs come >from Zuelz, which also had 12
FRIEDLAENDER families.

I'll look for FRIEDLAENDER / GOLDMANN marriages in Upper Silesia. Any
idea when these people were born?

The brothers Bernhard and Louis GOLDMANN were partners
in a branch of the Mosenthal's trading business in
Burghersdorp, along with Godfroy SICHEL (probably of
Jewish origin).

The Goldmanns were in some way related to the family
of Isadore FRIEDLANDER who migrated >from Upper Silesia
to Middelburg in the Cape in the period between ~1830
and ~1860.

Both the Goldmann and the Friedlander familys came
from Prussian Upper Silesia, most probably from
Breslau +/- Beuthen.

I am interested in obtaining a family tree,
preferably, or some information showing exactly how
the two families, GOLDMANN and FRIEDLANDER are related.

NEW BOOK ON a Lithuanian migration and life experiences in South Africa. #lithuania

H E <heastern@...>
 

Recently published book "Spilt milk" by Dr Len Lotzof


A recently released book "SPILT MILK" published [in Australia by
WILD & WOOLLEY PO Box W76 Watsons
Bay NSW 2030 Australia ISBN 1 74018 351 7. ] tells the story
of the author's (Dr Len Lotzof's ) ancestry from/in Lithuania, and
of his fathers hurried migration [with a price on his head] to South Africa.
The book is an autobiographical account of how living in a small
rural town (dorp) in South Africa as well as his parents attitude to
life shaped his (Len Lotzof's) worldly outlook and personality.

Len's father MIKE came >from Lutzin where he and his older brother
worked as horse traders.
One day on the way home they were attacked by Lithuanian gentiles,
and during the fight Max the brother accidentally killed one of the
assailants.
Len's father, Mike, accepted the blame and fled to South Africa where
he led a span of donkeys up to Kimberly in the Free State.
He then went to a relative in the small Orange Free State town of
Heilbron hoping to get work.

The story continues with his empathy and relationship with the blacks
and his parents attitude to them and other people and relatives.
There is hilarity and drama in his time a as a young medical houseman
at various black and white hospitals.
Also his army experiences with the Youth Training Brigade during WWII

When Len's father was gored to death by a bull, Len had to
(temporally) give up his medical practice & profession, and move to
the small town of Heilbron and take over the running of the family farms.

The story goes on to describe Lens observations of the domestic
politics prevailing in South Africa during the fifties, and his
family's decision to migrate to Australia in 1960.

Please note that I have ABSOLUTELY no commercial or other interest of
gain in this book, but was recently given a copy.
Thought many other Litvak and South African Jewish Genealogy
researchers would also find this book of interest covering life in
Lithuania / South Africa during the first half of the past century.

Town Leader versus Town Contact [now called Contact Person] #poland

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

There has been some confusion regarding the terms "Town Leader" for Jewish
Records Indexing-Poland (JRI-Poland) and what had been called "Town Contact"
for the Lodz Area Research Group (LARG). To avoid further
misunderstandings, I have renamed the Town Contact (LARG) to be called the
"Contact Person." The listing of people to contact for many of the 80+
towns within the LARG is on webpage:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lodz/LARGtown.htm.

Further clarification of the two positions:

1. "Town Leaders" Jewish Record Indexing-Poland (JRI-Poland) --part of the
Polish State Archives (PSA) project

Background: In July 1997, Jewish Records Indexing - Poland (JRI-Poland)
http://www.jri-poland.org entered into a milestone agreement with the Polish
State Archives (PSA), to index their holdings of Jewish vital records that
were not microfilmed by the Mormons (LDS). While the LDS microfilms contain
approximately two million Jewish vital records, it is estimated that there
are at least another five million 19th century Jewish vital records that are
not accessible on microfilm. Generally, these are >from the years 1866 to
1905, a time when many of our grandparents and great-grandparents were
living in Poland.

Archive Coordinators find volunteer Town Leaders, typically someone
researching the town. Town Leaders are responsible for fund raising to pay
for the cost of the indexing activity for their town. The Archive
Coordinator may also choose to be the Town Leader for one or two towns,
particularly those in which they may be interested.

2. "Contact Person" formerly called "Town Contact" -- part of the Lodz Area
research Group (LARG)

This is a person with an interest in a town listed within the Lodz Area
Research group's domain. The job is not to necessarily know more, but to
gather and share information received >from other researchers as well as
contribute whatever he/she knows about the town. It's a wonderful way to
learn more about the town when connecting with others researching the same
place. Should questions arise that the Contact Person cannot answer, it can
be posted on the LARG listserv or sent to LARGHelp.

Sometimes a volunteer may wear both hats: JRI-Poland's "Town Leader" and
LARG's "Contact Person." It can also be the person who creates and manages
the ShtetLink website for the town. Other times three people fill these
positions for the same town.

I am pleased to announce that recently JORGE MADROWICZ >from Argentina
volunteered to be the Contact Person for Ozorkow.

We still have many "orphan" towns listed on the LARG ShtetLinks site. Please
consider being the Contact Person for the town of your interest. See the
list at: http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lodz/LARGtown.htm

Hope to see you at the Conference in New York this summer (link below).

Jewish Named Geographical Features #general

Alexander Sharon
 

Dear Genners,

Beside the Jewish Named Towns, which have been presented to Group in six
installments, there are also Jewish Named "other" Geographical Features,
such as lakes, mountains or others.

There is no question, that those features are reflecting our ancestors
presence in those places, perhaps as the nearby first dwellers or
discoverers, perhaps as the owners.

I've decided to include those features as the addition to the listed
previously towns, and the main main reason is that nearly all those names
have completely disappeared >from the modern maps.

When exact location of those features are identified, please use
ShtetlSeeker and click on the name of the nearest town (district or parish)
that is included in the feature description

Translation of Yiddish word "ah-noos" #general

hekenvin@...
 

My grandfather told me that his father was a grain merchant who went
by wagon to Bessarabia to get a seed that was turned into oil.
Phonetically, the seed sounded like "ah-noos," with an emphasis on
the last syllable. I thought this might be "anise" seed. Does
anyone know for sure?

I need this information for the Skala Podol'ska web site.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Sarah TURTLETAUB Soc. Security application #general

Beth Galleto
 

I sent for a Social Security application for Sarah TURTLETAUB, nee Nathan,
born 1884 in what looks like Zro-how, Poland, daughter of Joseph Nathan and
Regina Franzblau. She turns out not to be in my family tree. I would be
happy to send this to someone for whom she is a relative. Please contact me
off list.
