Re: Viguel de Sus or Felso Viso #hungary

Where Once We Walked says that Viseu de Sus, Romania was also known as
Felshevisho, Over Vish, Ober Wisho, Oyber Visheve, Vishya or Viso. It had a
pre-was Jewish population of 3,734; 123 km NNE of Cluj-Napoca at
47o43'/24o26'.

There is a long article in Yad VaShem's "Encyclopedia of Jewish Life Before
and During the Holocaust" on the town (vol. 3, p. 1405).

Hi,

I have an uncle that married in Barsana (Barczanfalva)
Romania in 1884. The records record his place of birth as
Viguel de Sus or Felso Viso.

Does anybody have any idea where this is and what it is
called today?

Thanks!

Care of Gravestones [in Germany] #germany

Justin Levy <levyduffy@...>
 

My apologies if this is an inappropriate forum for my question, but I cannot think
of anyone else to ask.

During my recent holiday in east Holstein (i.e. NW of Luebeck) I was able to visit
the small Jewish cemetery in Bad Segeberg. Of the 160 odd gravestones that stood
before 1933 only 55 remain. Amongst them are the gravestones of my 3 great
grandparents as well as several fourth, fifth and even sixth cousins.

For many reasons it was quite a moving experience.

However, my ggggf's gravestone (dating >from 1866) is tilting at such a precarious
angle that it was not possible to place a stone on it, and the German inscription
on the back can no longer be read. So, my question is should I ask the appropriate
authorities to re-set the stone in an upright position? Photographs taken of his
gravestone about ten years ago show that the tilting is a recent phenomenon.

I would appreciate your advice. Regards,

Justin Levy (Dublin, Ireland) <levyduffy@...>

Lodzer landsmanshaftn plots in New York and New Jersey #lodz #poland

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Hello fellow Genners,
I am writing to tell you of more that might be of interest to many of the
Lodz researchers. I have just put online on my website a page that displays
photographs of thirteen of the existing fourteen Lodz society burial plot
gates that are located at various cemeteries in the New York-New Jersey
metro area. I have also listed every name (given name and surname) that is
inscribed on the gates/posts that serve as the entrances to these plots. You
will find the names of officers and members listed for each society at most
locations, as well as the date each society was established, and the date
when the gate was erected. Perhaps examining these name lists will yield the
name of someone whom you have a genealogical interest in. This web page can
be accessed through the Site Map-Cemetery Project-Society Gates links at
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com .
Also, you will find in the Map Room a map of 1936-7 area surrounding Lodz
and also a unique surnames list for the combined Lodz society plots, which
has been recently updated.

A friend of mine is interested in finding out about his Jewish ancestry if any.
His name is MECHLER and all he knows is that his family immigrated from

Fw: Prayerhall (Synagogue) at the New Jewish Cemetery in Fuerth #germany

Nick Landau <N.Landau@...>
 

MODERATOR NOTE: Gisela Blume is a 2000 recipient
of the Obermayer German History Award. This message is posted
because it mentions her current work. GerSIG takes no position
regarding the reported need for restoration of a synagogue nor on
the need for funding of such a project. We do not accept messages
soliciting funds for any activity outside of JewishGen. MOD 1

I recently visited the new cemetery in Fuerth where I was shown round by
Gisela Blume. She informed me that the prayerhall (ie synagogue) which was
built in 1906 (and therefore has its centenary next year) needs a
substantial amount of work to be done to it. Clearly they are only a small
community now and and they don't have the funds to do the required work.

It would seem a nice idea, for instance, that people who have a connection
with Fuerth might like to consider making a donation.

The contact details are:

Israelitische Kultusgemeinde Fuerth
Blumenstr. 31
90762 Fuerth
Germany

Tel (0911) 77.08.79

I should add that I am writing this on my own account, and that you would
need to contact the Jewish community for further information about this. I
might also say that whilst I have no doubt that what I was told about the
building is correct you would need to check for yourself, because I am just
going on what I was told - this is not in anyway meant to defame the person
who informed me, but to protect myself legally.

I suggested to Frau Blume one or two ideas for obtaining funds. It is
somewhat ironic that last Sunday was the Day of Jewish Culture in Europe
when in many countries synagogues of note were opened to the general public.

(I am somewhat surprised that the building is not considered to be a
building of historic interest and that some funds are not available >from the
State or EU.)

Looking for descendants of Frederika ROSENBERG #germany

Jan Bousse <janbousse@...>
 

Dear friends,
I am searching for data related to Frederika ROSENBERG, who appears in the
1848 will of her brother Rudolph LEWIS, then in Jamaica. The will
specifically named his brother James Maurice LEWIS in the city of Dantzig in
Prussia and his sisters Rebecca SPANDEW and Frederica ROSENBERG. It would
therefore appear that the maiden name of both sisters was LEWIS or more
likely LEVIN or LEVI. There is no mention of where the sisters were living,
from my research it would seem it was not in Dantzig. My guess is that it
was Berlin or the area around Berlin, where the LEVIN / LEWIS family
originated, probably in Spandau.

My aim is by discovering particulars about these two women to find the name
of their mother, perhaps also the father. A marriage document, birth of
children, etc. may be useful. Seeing that a number of times listers called
ROSENBERG or interested in the name have contributed messages, I hope that
perhaps one of them might be related to Frederika, or that someone knows
more about her and/or her sister Rebecca SPANDEW. The latter name is rather
unusual, it was spelled that way by her brother in Jamaica and the
transcription might be wrong, it could also have been SPANDOW or even
SPANDAU.

Hoping to find some new clues, I thank you in advance.

Jan BOUSSE, Oostende, Belgium janbousse@...
