Salzburg synagogue #austria-czech

elisabeth segal <darla1504@...>
 

I want to express my grateful thanks to Celia for all her kindness and hard
work, on my behalf. It has been very much appreciated. At last I now know
where my father's family lived in the East End.

May I now ask, please can anyone please tell me what happened to the
synagogue in Salzburg. Was it destroyed on Crystal Night, was it ever
rebuilt? Does anyone know?

kindest regards and best wishes to you all

Re: Klepperle / Klepplerer #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

I recently replied to the David Laufer's query on the KLEPPERLE family
from Bohemia and Vienna.
Before we get completely immersed in a flood of introductions and
re-introductions, I would like to tie up various loose ends. There are
still very many unanswered questions which have appeared on our SIG in
recent months. The SIG only becomes of real value if we concentrate on
each posting, try and answer questions in it and analyse available data
to get maximum value >from each query. Unanswered postings are very frustrating.

So back to the KLEPPERLE family. I have been working with Jaroslav Achab
Haidler in the Czech Republic and he tells me [I have his permission to
quote] that a KLEPPER is an old horse in German and Bohemian dialect
A KLEPPERER might be a dealer in horses. Perhaps a knacker?

The root name would be KLEPPER. The suffixes are as we already know:
*es* is the possessive
*in* is the feminine ending
*le and les* are diminutives - ie the little KLEPPER
Something or somebody belonging to the little
KLEPPER is designated KLEPPERLES

Whether the family actually dealt in horse/livestock we do not know - it
may also have been a nickname assigned to them.

Re: Searching for SCHWARTZ and GINSBURG, USA #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

It appears that the GINSBURG and SCHWARTZ families as described by Jill
Anderson do not exist in the voluminous Rokiskis records, although there are
plenty of other families by those last names who did exist.

The reason for this may be the following:

The names of the parents and chldren which Jill has are not as they appear
in the records as her names are Anglicized.

The family may have evaded or paid off the tax agents and therefore are not
listed.

The family were registered in another shtetl where they resided prior to
Rokiskis and their registration was never changed to Rokiskis.

They may actually have lived in Rokiskis a very short time and therefore not
been included in any records.

The family names of SCHWARTZ and GINSBURG may have been bogus and taken on
to avoid conscription, etc. The real family name under which they are
listed in the records may not be known.

Some avenues to try and find the family are:

Check the death records/cemetery records in England for the parents Jacob
and Dvorah and see who their parents were. Also find the ages of the
children and grandchildren to determine when they would have appeared in
various records for Rokiskis.

Look further into other related families and see if records exist for them.

You can also try to look through the Ellis Island Database and see if the
two brothers are listed.

Perhaps you will get lucky and some JewishGenner will recognize your family
names!!!

Dear Genners,

I am new to this list, but I am looking for anyone who has the above lady on

I have one of her mother, and her daughter (My grandmother)

The JewishGen Discussion Group is so friendly, so helpful, and so *big*.
I think that it would lighten the traffic and let us focus on new
issues if we thanked each other privately only. Also, a personal note
is more meaningful to the recipient.

Knopflmacher Stammbaum #austria-czech

rodihan@...
 

A few months ago, I was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of a KNOPFLMACHER
Family Stammbaum. It was written about 1905 by a distant relative, Moritz
[Mordechai] KNOPFLMACHER (1828-1910) of Vienna, and is about 65 pages long.
The first few pages, all in Hebrew (which I've since had translated), outline
how the KNOPFLMACHER family of Holesov, Moravia is descended >from Jehuda Loew,
the MaHaRal of Prague.

For anyone who potentially might be connected with this family, here are some
of the families that KNOPFLMACHER daughters, granddaughters, or other
descendants married into: GOLDSCHMIED of Nikolsburg, DEUTSCH of Mistek,
KURZ of Kojetein, WOLF of Mahr. Weisskirchen, ADLER of Holesov (later AGUILAR
of Spain and Portugal), BEER of Holesov, SINGER of Ung Brod, HAAS of Lhotta,
WOLF of Napajedl, GROSS of Geiring, GOLDHAMMER of Kremsier and Vienna, SCHNER
of Ung Brod, FISCHER of Holesov, SCHLESINGER of Zambokrat, LANG of Zambokret,
HOFFMANN of Klotschunska, MULLER of Vienna, ZERKOWITZ of Holesov and Vienna,
ORSTEIN of Wessely, BLICH of Krakau, DONATH of Lipthal, MULLER of Hullein,
KAUFMANN of Vienna, EICHENWALD of Vienna, KAISER of Bisenz, KAPP of Napajedl,
BERGER of Bisenz, REISS of Kolusow and Trencin, HAAS of Liborcsa and United
States, JUST of Ilava, MANGOLD of Postyan and Vienna, KRAUSZ of Bosacz, WEINER
of Ivanka, KANN of ?, HOLZMANN of Michelstetten, NEUGROSCHL of Bosacz, STERNER
of Neustadtl, SCHONER of Ujhely ("dann Debreczen"), HERZOG of Verbo, WINKLER
of Prossnitz, JELLINEK of Vienna, HERZ of Prostejov, FRIESS of Prostejov,
RUMPLER of Prostejov, HUPPERL of Prostejov. SCHNURMACHER of Napajadl,
GOLDSTEIN of Napajedl, POLLACK of Napajedl, STRASSMANN of Napajedl, BELLAK
of Napajedl, KOHN of Holesov and Wsetin, and many other surnames.

The Stammbaum also gives special treatment to the MORGENSTERN family of Strany,
the REDLICH family of Wiesenberg and Olomouc, the POLLACK family of Boikowitz,
the KOHN family of Wessely, the OPPENHEIMER family of Leipnik (many pages),
and the STRANSKY family (of Ronov?)

If any of these families and locations connect with the research that others
are doing, I would be happy to pass along information contained in this Stammbaum.

Bnai Israel Cemetery, Oxon Hill Maryland #general

A couple of days ago, I tried phoning the Bnai Israel Cemetery in Oxon
Hill Maryland using the phone number (ending 9603) that is in the IAJGS
listing. I got a recording that the number is not in service. I checked
some other online sites and got the same number.

Does anyone have a working number for this cemetery? Or better yet, an
email address?

NOVAK Family, Tulsa Oklahoma 1930 #general

eatwelbwel@aol.com <eatwelbwel@...>
 

Hello,

I'm searching for a woman named Freda Novak who lived in Tulsa,
Oklahoma in 1930. In the 1930 Census she was listed as a widow, age 47,
living with her son William, age 13. She was born in Latvia, circa
1883, and came to the US in circa 1905. I don't know her maiden name,
but she was a cousin my mother knew as a child. Any information about
her family or how I can find out more about her would be greatly
appreciated.

Thanks!

Re: Census Puzzle #general

nitram <martin@...>
 

I did a search for prwr and found that this question has been going on
for years and I could find no definitive answer.

According to my search three things are possible (1) prwr means prewar.
This seemed to be disregarded immediately because it was found on 1910
census and how would anyone know that a war was coming ... hence pre
war makes no sense. (2) pr wr could mean prisoner of war, and (3) some
individuals found grmy prwr on census' >from people they were sure were
from Russia. Some think that it may be an early means of some machine
presorting code.

However, I am intrigued and I will keep searching.
