Using the Mormon FHL #germany

Judith Goldsmith <judithgoldsmith@...>
 

Hello dear Gersiggers:
I live near a Mormon church with a Family History Library.
Years ago I tried to do research there, but got nowhere.
Judging >from the success I keep hearing others have using this resource,
I think I must have asked the wrong questions or asked them the wrong way.

I'd like to give it another try. My first goal would be to try to find
out anything I could about the Jews in the small towns of Hesse, starting from
the one tiny town where mine were living in the 1780s. What I'd hope to find
would be synagogue or population lists of some of the nearby towns where hopefully
the parents of my female ancestors lived.

Can anyone who has had success using the FHL make suggestions for what I
should look for at the library, and how to find the materials there
that might help? Thanks,

Judith Goldsmith Oakland, California USA <judithgoldsmith@alum.calberkeley.org>

If I can find information on Hesse towns, I will put it on the WWW, on my Hesse

Re: How customary would a double grave be? #germany

A & B Algaze <Algaze@...>
 

My LEBURG great grandparents are buried in
Bergfriedhof Cemetery in Heidelberg, Germany.
The single stone has her name on top:

Emma LEBURG
4 Okt. 1851 - 23 April 1926

Immediately below is his name:

Samuel LEBURG
27 Nov. 1847 - 1 Okt. 1928

At the very bottom is the name of my grandfather,
their first born son:

Julius LEBURG
24 Mai 1876 - gef. 2 June 1916
vor Verdun

I am pretty sure that the body of my grandfather was
never recovered >from the battlefields at Verdun, but
his name was probably added to the tombstone as a
memorial to him.

Dear Genners,
Would anyone know where in Poland any of these two towns are? (no

Shmuel,

Sandomierz is at 5041 2145, before WWII town was part of Kielce Province.

Lopatin (ex Lopatyn) at 4934 2846 is in western Ukraime.
Prior to WWII town was part of Radziechow district in Tarnopol Province

The Rabbis know this, and say we will have to wait for the coming of the
Meshiach to straighten out who is really a kohen, and who is not.
I recently contacted a possible relation of my late maternal grandfather
through the JGFF. The new contact asked me if my grandfather was a cohen. I
happened to know that he was. My putative relation said that made it that
much more likely that we were related as he was aware that there were very
few cohanim amongst people of our surname.

When we later met in London and I showed him the details I had of the family
from the printout that I had received >from the stetl group, he was convinced
that we were the same family.

His branch of the family had gone direct to the US, whereas my
greatgrandfather and family had come to England.

All of this is as a result of Jewishgen.

There is a genetic marker for kohens. I saw a whole program on PBS
about it. It was used to prove that a tribe in Africa who claimed to be
descendents of the Lost Tribe of Israel were truly Jewish and those
claiming to be kohens truly were.

Stephanie Weiner wrote on 16 jun 2005 in soc.genealogy.jewish:

Lenn Zonder's posting

1. the reverend in question was a chazzan and not a
rabbi. If he was serving as the cantor of a synagogue,
he might not have been entitled to marry people in the
synagogue, so he laid aside his cantorial title in
favor of "Reverend." Such was the case in the marriage
of my in-laws in the 1930's. They were married by a
cantor who used the title "Reverend"

supports a similar case in my own family:

My grandmother's nephew was married in NYC in 1917 by "Rev. Aaron
Hafner" [the signature on the marriage record]. Aaron Hafner's
occupation is listed in census records as "Cantor." Since the bride's
maiden name was also Hafner, I suspect the Cantor was her uncle.
I know nothing of US habits of that time,
but over here, rev. could have been an abreviation
of "Rabbi", most likely in the sense of:

"Sir", "Mister", "Honorable gentleman", etc.

and so the connection with "Reverend"
would be only circumstantial "folk etymology/lore".

A chazan, cantor, would certainly be a rabbi in that sense.
In the UK, up to roughly a hundred years ago the only man who actually used
the title "rabbi" was the Chief Rabbi.

The recent Guardian obituary of Rev Isaac Levy
http://www.guardian.co.uk/religion/Story/0,2763,1475185,00.html says that it
was considered more important that the minister could give a good sermon,
could teach at the cheder and knew the right thing to say to the sick or to
the bereaved, than that they were a rabbi.

FISHER of Philadelphia #general

Paul Silverstone
 

My cousin tells me that we had cousins in Philadelphia named Fisher.
My great-grandmother Rifka whose maiden name was probably Fischer, came
to America in 1912 and died in NY in 1925. The family came >from Makow
Mazowiecki (Makowa) and my interest is through her daughter, my
grandmother, Esther Silverstone (nee Silberstein). My grandfather
Harris Silverstone (ne Chrzan) took his wife's name when he emigrated.

My cousin thought that the singer Eddie Fisher came >from this Fisher
family. She recalled visiting Fisher cousins in Philadelphia in the 1920s.

If anyone can provide information it would be appreciated.
