Re: Moravian Malt Industry #austria-czech

Hi all,

my grandmother's best friend (and my favorite 'aunt') was Gertrud Briess; a
biography written by her husband's grandfather, Ignaz Briess, may be found
on my website under
http://www.schroefl.com/de/biographien/ignaz_briess/index.php
Unfortunately I have only the german text without a translation. There is a
part of the biography to be found in english under
http://www.jewish-funerals.org/moravia.htm , translated by Claire Bruell.

Regards >from Graz, especially to Claire and Peter,

Paul Schroefl

This is a huge topic; the Jews of Bohemia and Moravia were certainly at the
forefront of the industrialisation of malting. >from the Bohemian Jewish
census
of 1793, we know the names and locations of the many tenant distillers. They
and their Moravian counterparts were the trailblazers. The emerging
industrial
revolution and their fortuitous position as distillers were the obvious
catalysts - not forgetting the pre-eminence of Moravian barley and Bohemian
hops >from the Saaz {Zatec} region.
I am sure our SIG will be most interested to see this website about the
Briess
Malt and Ingredients Co of Wisconsin. If you click on "About Briess" on the
top line, you will find: The roots of {this company} date back to 1876 when
Ignatius BRIESS, a grain exchanger by trade, began malting barley grown in
his homeland of Moravia... There is even an inset about the Olmutz company
"Prima Malz - Ignaz und Wilhelm BRIESS.

Where to find records for PRAGER #austria-czech

Danielle James <daniandw@...>
 

Dear Group,

I hope that some one in this group can provide me with the following
answers. I have unsuccessfully searched for the following information
and would be very grateful for any suggestions and assistance members
can provide.

My father, Franz PRAGER, was born 17th February, 1919 in Mahen-Ostrau,
Morovia, Can I obtain a birth certificate for him, if so, >from where.
Also, being Jewish he would have had a Bris. Do Synagogues keep
records of this? I imagine that this would have been performed at his
place of birth. If so, whom should I contact regarding this record?

Franz was raised in Vienna, leaving in 1938 for France. My mother
received his benefits whilst he served in the French Army. I tried
some years ago to obtain his service records - without success. Can
anyone provide information as to where these would be held?

>from the period May 1941 to September 1942 (when he was deported to
Auschwitz >from Drancy, France), my father was in a number of work
camps in France. I have a copy of his papers (Fiche D'Identite de
Travailleurs Estrangers) which record dates and camp numbers (I
presume). Again, where would I obtain information, and records if
possible, about these camps?

My grandfather, Oskar PRAGER, died in Vienna in 1936. >from where
should I obtain a death certificate - and how much information would
this provide. I do not know where he was born. He served in the
Austro-Hungarian army during WWI. Is it possible to obtain his
records?

The last address of my grandmother, Melanie PRAGER (nee BRONNER) was
Czeringasse 12, Wien II, >from where she was deported to Wlodawa on 27th
April, 1942 - the last time anyone heard of her. The only other
information I have is her date of birth, but not place of birth. Can
anyone suggest how I might obtain information about Wlodawa; and any
other records regarding her.

I know that I have asked for a lot of information and hope that some
other members will also benefit >from these queries. Any information
or advice provided will be very much appreciated.

Kindest regards.

Thank you.

Designation of unmarried partners #unitedkingdom

Naomi Fellerman <nfellerman@...>
 

Dear all

I am sure this question has probably been asked before, but given that
in modern times a percentage of us live with our partners without being
married, how does one record this on the family tree? Any suggestions
welcome.

With warm regards

Meschanil #belarus

Paul & Irene Berman <ikpjb@...>
 

Thanks to those of you answered my query as to the location of "Meschanil"
and offered several suggestions.
Yuri Dorn, who also responded, and, I gather, is a Russian speaker, is the
Coordinator of "Jewish Heritage Research Group in Belarus". He says
"meschanil" is not the name of a shtetl but derives >from the Russian word
"meschanin" and refers to a person's status as a resident of a shtetl - any
shtetl.
I am sending you all this information in case you, too, find the word
meschanil in any of the Ellis Island records.

Researching REITSHTEIN, KAGAN and a bit more #belarus

Baruch Even <jewishgen@...>
 

Hello,

I would like to ask for information if you have on the families of:
REITSHTEIN >from Kurenets
KAGAN >from Lebedevo

I am also interested in ZUCKERMAN and ALPEROVITZ, they are not direct
ancestors, but were intermarried with the REITSHTEINs and KAGANs.

I have already went through the JewishGen system and Yad Vashem records
as well as spoke with Eilat Gordin Levitan. But any bits of information
would be most appreciated. I wouldn't mind a repeat.

Thanks in advance,
Baruch Even
