Zusman's Faience (Earthenware) Factory Kamenny Brod #ukraine

AllanDolgow@...
 

Searching for families that lived or worked at the at the ZUSMAN faience
factory, in KAMENNY BROD, UKRAINE.

Prior to 1904 my grandfather MEYER ISAAC OXENHORN worked at this factory in
KAMENNY BROD (there are several variences of the spelling),
Novgorod-Vylensk, Volhynia

My grandfather came Ostrog (his birthplace) and grandmother CHAIKE (IDA)
GERMAN came >from Novgorod-Volynsk (her birthplace) or sometimes referred to as
Zvil.

This factory was listed in a 1895 business directory. In 1919 there was a
pogrom in the town.
I am sure other relatives that did not migrate were killed. The factory may
have closed after that event.

Does anyone in their search have any connection to this factory? In 1919
there was a pogrom in the town and men, women and children were killed.
.
You can contact me directly if you have any information. I have been writing
to the town's archivist but he has not uncovered any official records.

School leaving certificate: Breslau 1832 #germany

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

My great great grandfather Nathan GINSBERG completed
his high school education at the Magdalaneum Gymnasium
in Breslau in 1832, aged 17. He was issued with a
leaving certificate cum report, of which I have an
indistinct photocopy. As far as I can make out, it
appears to be classified as "bedingten (?R?)eihe (or
[?R?]eife) No. II".

Does anyone have any familiarity with the types of
school leaving certificates issued by Prussian
gymnasiums in this period? If yes, please let me know
the significance and educational value of a
certificate, as described above.

Study of kinship links between Jewish butchers in Rhineland Germany #germany

Jeanette R Rosenberg <106503.3561@...>
 

As part of a course exploring the way that databases can be used by
historians, I am currently undertaking a short academic study of kinship
links among the families of Jewish butchers in Rhineland Germany. I will
be exploring the links between families and will supplement this with other
detailed information about Jewish families in the area.

If you have any information that you think might be useful background data
for my study, no matter how anecdotal, I would be interested in hearing
from you. In particular I am interested in hearing views about using
databases for historical research, about academic or other less formal
sources that might be suitable for further research.

I am also interested in hearing about the history of all aspects related to
Jewish involvement in the trades and professions of butchery, starting with
animal keeping, through slaughter, butchering, sausage making and associated
employments such as spice merchants and sausage skin making trades and
professions, (but not where to locate the laws of Kashrut).

I would also be interested in hearing more about written sources of
information concerning last names associated with all these trades and
professions. I have already undertaken a full search of the JewishGen
website and in particular the GERSIG archive, which has provided much
useful information.

For example, recently there was a request for help in

resident. So I knew something about the cemetery in
question. The name had changed and was therefore
hidden >from the searcher. It took me a while, but I

This has not been a single incident but rather the

Hebrew Translation Help Needed #general

Mel Werbach <mel@...>
 

In researching my MISHURSKI ancestors, I discovered
that I had a cousin Boris who was a cancer researcher
working at Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus when he
was killed in 1948 by an Arab sniper. I don't know if
he left any family.

Recently, however, I found that his biography is
posted in Hebrew on the Israeli government's Izkor web
site. As my Hebrew is minimal, would some kind soul
translate the biography for me? Help would be most
appreciated. The site is:
