KRAUS in Jewish Census Bohemia 1793 #austria-czech

Zimmer-Luedinghausen@...
 

Hi list members,
I believe I have asked this question before but don't think I ever got
an answer that really helped me. So I am going to ask it again.

In Volume I I of the Bohemian Jewish Census of 1793 for Kourimsky Kraj
(p.118) I find under the village Potschernitz (Horni Pocernice) the
entry Jachim KRAUS (1) and his wife and 4 unmarried sons. The 1
following his name in brackets meaning this was the only Jewish family
living in this community in 1793.

My gggrandmother Elisabeth (Bele) LANG nee KRAUS was, I found in several
documents, >from this village and was born in 1802. So she couldn't have
been mentioned in this census. >from her death entry on two separate
cemetery documents I got the information that her father was one time
called Meir and the next time Moshe.

Here my question: How certain can I be, that this Jachim KRAUS mentioned
in the census actually was Elisabeth's father (an thus my ggggrandfather)
even though his first name differs a lot >from the cemetery lists?

Thank you very much for your suggestions

Brno archives - Damborice #austria-czech

Julius Muller <library@...>
 

Rudy Matzner raised a question on Damborice records.

There is a small collection of Damborice records, incl. Familiant Book within
the Bucovice estate, inventory no. F 44. The collection is presumably stored
in one of Brno archive depositories.

One more note: Jewish vital records within 1807-1944 are located in Prague
National archive.

Care of Gravestones [in Germany] #germany

Zeev Raphael <zeevra@...>
 

May I please be allowed to comment on my recent posting on this issue.

It was pointed out to me that I may have given offence to some of our
German friends on this Forum. In fact, following that, I requested to
have the posting withdrawn. But somhow it appeared after all.

Let me assure you that I deeply regret it if I have offended anybody's feelings.

My remark was a subconscious reflex. Many years ago I received an invitation
to visit together with my wife, my former home town Zwickau, at the expense of the
local Municipality.
I very politely declined the generous, and no doubt well-meant offer.

With my best wishes,

Zeev Raphael, Haifa e-mail: zeevra@aerodyne.technion.ac.il

"... 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?
Justin Levy (Dublin, Ireland) levyduffy@eircom.net
------
I think you might very well do that.
Personally, I would ask them to have this done at *** my own *** expense.
This, because it is you who are interested to have the stone preserved.
In addition, I personally would beware of asking a German for any monetary
favours. With my best wishes,

Unser BLUMENGARTEN and Family MAYER #germany

Elizabeth Levy <levyliz@...>
 

As I go through photos left to me by my ggaunt, I'm looking for clues as to
who most of these people can be.

Occassionally I run across a name that is clearly not our family and instead
probably a friend who came to visit. I have nothing to do with these photos
and would love to pass them on to their rightful family.

The first being Unser BLUMENGARTEN. The photo is taken on the balcony at 480
Park Ave, 15th Fl, in New York in August 1931.

Does this sound like someone you know?

I am hoping something out there knows this man. If so, write me directly
(levyliz@smile.net.il ) and I'll be happy to send it to you.

Second, does anyone remember a MAYER family >from NY in the 30s-50s? Carl (or
Charles Ludwig MAYER) and his wife, Jenny, left Germany for New York,
eventually living on 42nd Street in Long Island City. Their daughter, my
ggaunt by marriage lived in Sweden and had no children. Their son, Kurt
MAYER, lived in the US too but I don't know what happened to him. I am looking
for Kurt's children if he had any. Anyone who might have known him or might be
able to tell me where to look for information would be very helpful. Thanks.

LDS Records for Unruhstadt / Kargowa 1817 to 1874 #poland

Geoff Kaiser <geoff_kaiser@...>
 

Dear Researchers,

through the excellent work of the people at the Toronto Copy Centre I will
be recieving printed copies of the LDS Films for the town of Unruhstadt (now
Kargowa in Poland - Location 52 Deg 04 Min 15 Deg 51 Min) in the coming
weeks.

I am looking for people who have an interest in this town to assist me with
the large process of reading and transcribing the Birth, Death and Marriage
and Family name records in preparation for them to be loaded onto the JRI -
Poland Database.

Some preliminary previous work has identified some of the frequently
occuring names as follows:

Baumgart, Bernhold, Bamberg, Basch, Borgheim / Burgheim, Boas / Boar,
Bucholz, Cohn, Coppel, Falk, Fallek (?), Fischel, Gittman, Gabriel,
Grunpert, Hertzburg, Jablonski, Joseph, Jacobi, Judas, Lichtenstein,
Lippmann, Loeser / Loser, Loeb, Lowenstein, Levine, Lowenthal, Marcus,
Meyer, Mendel, Neubauer, Nachman, Nathan, Oppenheim, Pach
Phillips, Pincus, Reich, Riesenthal, Reitzenbaum, Schlesinger, Sigall,
Seilig, Stern, Silberstein, Samuel
Saloman, Wolf / Wolff, Wigdor, Wiener, Vogel, Zirker

Not all of the spellings may be correct, and note this is a very preliminary
list, there will be many others.

If anyone with an interest in the town of Unruhstadt or any of the above
names would like to contact we can discuss how you can help with the task.

I look forward to your support

Regards

Geoff Kaiser

Re: Cologne (Koeln) & Prison + MARCUS & ROSENBOOM family #germany

gaby laws <gabylaws@...>
 

Hi,

My gg grandfather's brother Nathan Philippus ROZENBOOM died 19 December 1871
in prison at Klungelputz 37 in Koeln. I'm interested in finding more
information about his imprisonment - do such records exist?

Also my gg grandfather Aron Marcus ROZENBOOM, used the surname MARCUS, he
had at least 12 children, I have been able to find information about 9 of
them but seek further information on the following:

Levie MARCUS b11/6/1865 Zutphen Holland, was a merchant living in Cologne in
1898 & 1899, nothing further known. Was he married? have children? etc

Abraham MARCUS b18/12/1867 Zutphen Holland, nothing further known.

Meyer MARCUS b10/9/1875 Delmenhorst, he died in Cologne 18/6/1909 and
according to his tombstone he was married and had children but no names are
there.

The Cologne archives are not prepared to provide any information on the 3
people shown above as I am not a direct descendent.

I would appreciate any help or advice on finding out more about this family,
Thanks - Gaby Laws London UK gabylaws@hotmail.com


MARCUS family Cologne #germany

gaby laws <gabylaws@...>
 

Hi
I am trying to find information regarding my great grandfather's siblings,
in total there were at least 12, I have found details for 9 and am still
looking for:

Levie MARCUS born 11/6/1865 Zutphen Holland, was a merchant in Cologne 1899.
Nothing further known.

Abraham MARCUS born 18/12/1867 Zutphen Holland, possibly lived in Cologne.

Meyer MARCUS born 10/9/1875 Delmenhorst, died 18/6/1909 Cologne. >from his
tombstone I know that he was married and had children but no names were
shown.

I have tried the Cologne archives but as I am not a direct descendant of the
above they will not help me. I would like to find out if they were married
and whether they had any children etc.

Also my gg grandfather's brother Nathan Philippus Marcus ROZENBOOM born
21/12/1841 died in prison in Cologne 19/12/1871 the prison address appears
to be Klingelputz 37, would there be any further information available? if
so where would I find it? Thank you.
