BRANDES and BAZAR from Postolovka or Wygoda #galicia

Brigitte Thireau <brandes@...>
 

My name is Brigitte Brand=E8s >from Paris. I'm researching my paternal
family Brandes and Bazar >from Postolovka or Wygoda not far >from
Chorostkow and Ternopol.

Uncles of my father named BAZAR leaved Galicia to Montreal Canada
before 1st world war . Who heard about this family? My uncle Isaac
BRANDES settled in Moscow where he married a Kazan girl and 2
daughters and was arreted and killed by Staline about 1930. Has
someone an idea to find out his family?

Thank you for your help.
Best regards.

Female's patrilineal ancestry? Jewish ancestry? #dna

As a female can I check my ancestry on my father's side? Is it
possible to check for any Jewish genetic markers in my heritage?

Kaunitz Herrschaft, Bohemia #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

This discussion started because Karen Cecilio believed her husband's line
of Jewish KAUNITZ may have left Moravia because of the Familianten laws, and
travelled, as many did, to Hungary, taking the name KAUNITZ as that is where
they may have originated.

I have already discussed Kanitz [sic] and Austerlitz in Moravia - the latter
was the main seat of the famous Kaunitz family, although like many of these
wealthy, influential families, they may well have had estates elsewhere.

I omitted to mention that in Bohemia there was also a Kaunitz [Kounice]
Herrschaft in the Kaurzimer/Kourimer Kreis. This Herrschaft comprised of six
villages: Kaunitz [Kounice], Wykann [Vykan], Mochow [Mochov], Nehwizd [Nehvizdy],
Horauschau [Horousany] and Daubeck [Doubek].

There also appears to be a village called Kanitz in the Bidschover Kreis,
Bohemia. Only one family - that of Abraham TAUSEK, a potash extractor with
a wife and three daughters, had their Schutz in that village, but they lived
in the Herrschaft of Neubidschau. [Novy Bydzov].

So the names Kaunitz and Kanitz are not exclusive to Moravia, but are also
found in Bohemia.

Common Courtesy #general

Kandells <kandells@...>
 

Over the past year, I have forwarded two requests for Italian translations
to a relative who is fluent in the language. In neither case has the person
requesting assistance acknowledged receiving the help, nevermind expressing
any appreciation. As a result, my relative has requested I not send any
further calls for help to him. Everyone's the loser when we neglect common
courtesy.

It is with deep sorrow that I convey condolences to Dr. Perets (Percy) Mett
and his family of London on the tragic loss of his son Shmuel Eliyahu
(Hashem Yinkom Damo) who was murdered by an Arab terrorist in Jerusalem. Dr.
Mett is a member of the committee of RavSIG and is known for his
genealogical researches, particularly Chassidic families.

Those who attended the International Conference on Jewish Genealogy in
Jerusalem last year may recall Perets.

May the Almighty comfort him and his family together with all the mourners
for Tzion and Yerushalayim.

Byelorussian life #general

Aliza <alizam@...>
 

Dear Genners,
This is a one time posting about a book published last year that
authentically describes life in a Byelorussian shtetl in the 1880s and in
Lodz in the 1890s.
The narrator, Zalman Vendrof, once enjoyed a wide following by the Yiddish
reading public.
Further details about this first major English translation of his work,
titled "When It Comes To Living", can be obtained by googling "Vendrof" or the
book title.

I have no economic or other personal interest in the distribution of this
book.

Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Shabse HaCohen (ShaCh) 1622-1663 #romania

Hi all,

I am a descendent of the RUBIN family who are Kohanim. I was told for many
years that the RUBIN family who are Kohanim are direct descendents of Rabbi
Shabse HaCohen (ShaCh). I have contacted many RUBIN families who are
Kohanim and they all told me the same thing that they are direct decadents
of the (ShaCh). A relative of mine mentioned to me that there was a person
who lived in Nyiregyhaza by the named Yackov Rubin who had a family tree of
the direct linage to the (ShaCh) but unfortunately it was destroyed during
the war and Yackov Rubin didn't survive.

If anyone knows any connection of the RUBIN family to the (ShaCh) or any
RUBINS that are Kohanim, please let me know.

Thank You

Henry Schwartz

"Chanoch". followed by the Hebrew letters, Heh, Ayin, Nun, Yud, Chaf, which
I would
spell, "Henich". I remember that his yiddish name as "Henach", so I
presume

that the second word is a form of Yiddish kinnui of his Hebrew name.
"Henoch" was my grandfather's name in Russia as well, but onve he arrived
here, he became Henry.

I had a great uncle (my mom's uncle) who had a son and both perished in 1941
in Odessa. My mom told me about a cousin Enach. I found his sister's
daughter Eugenia in Israel recently through Yad Vashem P.O.T. and we
realized we were related. My grandmother and her grandfather were sister and
brother. Anyway she said her uncle's name was Gendi in Russian but then I
realized she was "rolling her R" and was saying Genrich which would be
Russian for Henry. She didn't know his Hebrew name but I told her that was
Enach.
