Rabbi Eliyahu LANDA(U) #rabbinic

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

In a scribbled note with some family roots there is the name
R' Eliyahu LANDA (in Hebrew without the "vav").

The only comments I seem to have on him is that he was connected
somehow to my ggggreat grandfather R' Eliezer KANTOR (who is noted as
a Rosh Yeshiva in Slonim). Since the note I have is only of family
tree I presume that the connection between LANDA and R' Eliezer was
father-in-law/son-in-law.

The time frame should be mid-19th cent.

Any information regarding the above names-LANDA/KANTOR (of Slonim)
would be appreciated.

Ssearching american relatives of STRAUSS from MUEHLHEIM/Mosel #germany

Pierre KOGAN
 

Dear Jewish Genners,
I am seeking American relatives who emigrated to the United States before WWII.
Their names, dates, countries of origination follow:

1. Charles Salomon (Sali) STRAUSS, born August 16, 1882, in Muelheim/Mosel,
Germany. According to the SSDI (119-22-8843), he died November 1967 at age
85 in Philadlephia, PA 19126. The Social Security application lists an
address of 46 W 83RD ST APT (Range 5A - 5J). We think this may be New York,
NY 10024-5253.

2. Charles Strauss's sisters:
Irma Gabrielle STRAUSS, born August 11, 1886, in Muelheim/Mosel, Germany.
We are guessing that she married still in Germany (or in U.S.?) and had children.

Berta STRAUSS, born June 27, 1885, in Muelheim/Mosel, Germany.

3. Charles Strauss's brother was Eugen Benjamin, shot and killed by the
Germans in April 1944 in France.

Any clues or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help.

Israel Genealogical Society's Consolidated Surname Index is now online #poland

Jean-Pierre Stroweis
 

The Israel Genealogical Society [IGS] is pleased to announce that the IGS
Consolidated Surname Index is now online and searchable. Go to
http://www.isragen.org.il/NROS/Research/Aides.html

You can search through the 20,000 surnames mentioned in the more than
100,000 records databased by our volunteers. The searchable index will
enable you to find out in which databases the surname is mentioned and how
frequently.

This web tool is a useful complement to the "Projects CD" that was
especially created for the July 2004 conference in Jerusalem. An index
search can be made using exact spelling or using the Daitch-Mokotoff
soundex.

We'd like once again to thank all the volunteers who saw this project
through to fruition!

Re: A Gloss on 1724 Census #austria-czech

samorai <samorai@...>
 

Julius Muller's pertinent comments regarding the 1724 census (11 April 2005)
state that it was "primitive only in terms of technology used but not in terms
of the consistency." In retrospect, it is certainly and inevitably the case
that the technology was "primitive", but the census was a remarkable and
advanced achievement for its time. Ruth Kestenberg-Gladstein's article in
Zion 13: 1-26 entitled "The 1724 Census of the Non-Metropolitan Jews of
Bohemia" [Hebrew] cites its use of "innovative statistical methods". Case
replication, the hallmark of modern age census-taking, and a central
characteristic in making it a scientific instrument, was first introduced in
17th c. England by William Petty. Petty's formulation in this regard was
followed by those who implemented this 1724 Habsburg census. That
consistency was attained must have been in no small part due to the
available technology. The centralist Habsburg bureaucracy had to obtain
permission and their information >from the numerous lords of the Bohemian
estates, a good percentage of whom were nervous about revealing the
demographic status of Jews within their jurisdiction. Earlier efforts of the
central authorities to restrict and even deport Jews >from Bohemia justified
their concern. The lords recognized that the sobriety and industriousness of
their Jewish population could not be replaced. These estate owners, key
figures in a feudal agricultural society, were also well aware of the
importance of trade for the development of a mercantile economy and a more
flourishing estate which could support their life style. Their Jewish
industrial plant lessees and pedlars were essential elements in 'driving
trade'. The 1724 census shows this economic role in some detail.

It is my understanding that the census figures cover 13 of the 14 districts
(apparently one district's findings were lost at some time). A grasp of the
contents of this census enlarges our understanding of the Familienten Laws
which followed and were dependent upon it.

Re: KOHN and LEDERER, Teresov?, Bohemia>Chicago, IL #austria-czech

Rebecca Fenning of Allston Mass writes:
My gggg-grandparents, Aaron KOHN (1826-1906) and Josephine LEDERER (1826-1900)
immigrated to Chicago, Illinois >from Bohemia in 1878 .....

Rebecca believes that they were related to another family of KOHNs, who
originated in Teresov, Bohemia, and settled in Chicago in the 1880s.

Teresov is in the Pilsner Kreis and the 1793 census could come to the rescue;
after all, 1826 is only slightly more than one generation after the census.

Believe it or not, KOHNs are few and far between in the Pilsner Kreis! There is
one KOHN family in Weitten Trebetisch and with no sons in sight. And there is one
KOHN family in Gutt Schemin {Stadl Tuschau}: Samuel, with three sons. There is no
Aaron to name an 1826 grandson after, so we can come to no conclusion.

Out of 630 Jewish families in the Pilsner Kreis - only two families named KOHN
must be some sort of record!

Rebecca is in greater luck with the LEDERERs: there are three LEDERER families
who might qualify as the grandparents of Josephine, born in 1826: there is also
an umarried Joseph LEDERER, who if I understand the footnote correctly, is
looking after his father Benjamin LEVITT.

All these LEDERERs are living in Gut Terrschau/Terreschau [Teresov].

Only examination of the birth and marriage records, [if they can be located], will
determine which family Josephine came from, and who exactly her KOHN spouse was.
