Fine Family <mafine@...>
 

Hi,
If any one could help translating this Polish document >from eastern
Galicia it would be greatly appreciated. What I need is just the
translation of the column headings. It is a document listing religious
schools (chadorim) in that section of Galicia in 1900.

Brno Archives #austria-czech

Rudy Matzner <matznerr@...>
 

Has anyone had experience communicating with the Brno Archives? I am
interested in finding what records they may have on the Jewish community
in Damborice, the birthplace of my grandfather, Leopold MATZNER.
Damborice is located about 20 miles southeast of Brno.

Their archive website is all in Czech, a language that I do not know. I
could stumble along in German, or use English. I'm wondering what
success others have had in communicating with Czech regional archives?

APPELBAUM - SOLOVEITCHIK of Brisk & Bialystok #rabbinic

Sara Joskelman <sarajoskelman@...>
 

I am looking for information on Rabbi Moshe APPELBAUM, who lived
in Brisk and Bialystok and was a cousin of the MANDELBAUMs of
"Mandelbaum Gate" fame and related to the SOLOVEITCHIK family of
Brisk. He was also cousin of Reb Nochumke's, the Bialystoker Rebbe.

Family APPELBAUM members Abraham and Henya lived in Drohiczyn near
Pinsk and Bialystok in the Grodno Governament of Belarus.

Reason for this Research:

The family of my cousin, Rabbi Yechiel PERR, Rosh Yeshiva Far
Rockaway, does not have Internet. He asked for my help. His lost
family name was APPELBAUM. The ancestor named Rabbi Moshe
APPELBAUM, or his son was given to family PERKOVITSKY ( family
changed to PERR). The APPELBAUMs had no sons and they raised Rabbi
PERR's ancestor APPELBAUM, giving him their name to save him from
the Russian army.

I will be grateful for any guidance in research or information on
the rabbinic background etc.

Education of immigrants #lithuania

Olga Zabludoff <oz@...>
 

Can anyone venture an opinion based on the known experience of an ancestor?

A petite 14-year-old Jewish girl >from a small Lithuanian shtetl immigrates
to the United States in 1921. She doesn't speak a word of English--only
Yiddish. She lives with her uncle and aunt (both of whom immigrated much
earlier) in a town in Massachusetts. They enter the girl into the local
public school. How would the school handle the girl's education? Would they
place her in the grade where most 14-year-olds are, or in kindergarten,
elementary school or what?

Thanks for any insights.

Hello Genners,

Has anyone heard of the female given name Surel. I have looked in the given
names database. I have not found a reference. If this name does exist, what
would be the English, Hebrew, and Yiddish translations?

Please reply privately

If the question was put publicly, I will answer it publicly, as it may
be of interest to others.

"Surel" is a Yiddish diminutive for "Sarah". The name is Hebrew, but
is used frequently in English as well.
