Seeking Family of YARCHOVER, SEGAL, STARASOLER of Zbarazh #general

Carole Feinberg
 

Dear Friends,

In 1957, Chana YARCHOVER/IARCHOVER/JARCHOVER submitted
two Pages of Testimony for cousin, Etyl SEGAL, nee
ZOMERFLEK, and mother, Niesia STARASOLER, nee
ZOMERFLEK, all >from Zbarazh. Nearest large
city--Tarnopol.

At that time, Chana's address was HaRoeh XX, Ramat
Gan, Israel. Thirty-six years later, another
YARCHOVER/IARCHOVER/JARCHOVER, Eliezer's, address was
Lehi XX, Ramat Gan. The trail then ends for this
family.

If you have knowledge of Chana, Eliezer, Etyl SEGAL or
Niesia STARASOLER's family please contact me
privately. I am researching my deceased grandmother,
Chaitsche, nee SOMERFLECK's, family.

Best wishes,

Carole Glick Feinberg

Researching SOMERFLECK, KATZ, MALKISCHER/Zbaraz,
Kujdance, Romanowe Siolo (near Tarnopol)

There are
Bar Kochva coins in the Americas and even a stone saying for the land of
Judah.
http://www.econ.ohio-state.edu/jhm/arch/barkokhb.htm says that these coins
were identified as modern replicas by a coin expert at the Israel Museum in
Jerusalem.

Similarly Romans "arrived" in the Americas too a Roman bust was discovered
in Mexico.

The American Jewish Archives website has a great genealogical resource

Does anyone know if their is something similar for British Jewry?
The first Jewish families arived in Britain perhaps with the Phoenicians,
far more tha 2000 years ago, as Simon Goulden of the United Synagogue
writes here:

Daf Hashavua 23/9/2000 < http://tinyurl.com/7ts5n >

Or else they surely came with the Roman conquest, but even if they did
arrive with William the conqueror as late as 1066, your expectation of
great genealogical resources is not very reasonable. ;-}
Any suggestion in Simon Goulden's article is speculation - he is not a
historian.

It is only with the arrival of William Conqueror that there is a definite
record of rabbis and therefore an organised Jewish community.

See, for instance, http://www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/pre-1290/list_alpha.htm
"Jewish communities prior to 1290"

Re: How to get a book? #hungary

Libraries *do* sell books. Culling is a common practice in almost every
library in the world.

A library is not a black-hole into which books get sucked never to emerge
again.

They are dynamic repositories, that buy sell and swop books on a regular
basis.

Of course, there are certain books and documents that a library will *never*
part with, but for a book of the type I understand Tom's uncle's book to be,
there is a good chance it will be culled some day.
This is the Retention and Disposal Policy of the State Library of New South
Wales, Australia.

http://www.sl.nsw.gov.au/policies/pdf/retentiondisposalpolicy.pdf

According to this, the NSW Library permanently retains material that has
been accessioned to it.
The exceptions to this are: 1 Missing items, 2 Faulty or damaged items, 3
Items not in a suitable condition for lending, 4 Items in poor and
deteriorating condition, 5 Items outside or marginal to the Library's
Development Policy, 7 Incomplete Multi-part Works, 8 Superceded Material, 9
Duplicates, 10 Items Accessioned in Error.

I suggest that you actually refer to the webpage before querying the above
which is just a summary.

I might add that as a recent UK Freedom of Information Officer, that every
public organisation all of which are bound by the FoI Act should have a
Retention and Disposal Schedule. They cannot arbitrarily get rid of any
document but must have a Schedule governing the disposal of documents. If a
request is made for a document, they must know whether they still have the
document and ideally be able to show that there is some Policy for releasing
or disposing of any document.

Hi Genners

I really like the new drop down on the home page it does
make everything easier to use, and the drop downs too taking
me to the ALD simplified the use of that.

I have found a reference in the tax and voter list which may
be to my ancestors in Ylakai the ref is KRA/I-49/1/17526 and
it refers to an Eliash BERENSTEIN, my ancestor was called
Elihaya according to my GGM (who was his daughter) what can
I now do with this to find out if it does refer to my
family?

Thanks

Tell me, would the Jews in England, whether they had
been their for a couple of centuries or not.....If
they came to America, say in 1700's, would they have
been considered English or Jewish, as far as records
were concerned or as far as their descendents were
concerned?

Thanks,

BIRTH RECORDS #hungary

Danielle James <daniandw@...>
 

Dear Members,

My grandfather Oskar PRAGER was born 29 January 1876, Keszthely,
Hungary. Can anyone advise me where I can obtain his birth
certificate, or access any other type of birth record.

He also served in WWI. I do not know in what capacity. I understand
that records of officers, etc. are held in Austria; but does anyone
know where records of other ranks would be held.

Oskar married Melanie BRONNER date and place unknown.

Apart >from his date of death in Vienna, and the information above, I
have completely run into a dead end - and I would be grateful for any
advice anyone can provide.

Best wishes to all
