Watermarks #austria-czech

Dubois family <family@...>
 

I would like to draw the attention of those members of this SIG, who live in
or near London, to the showing, on March 30, at the National Film Theatre,
of Watermarks, the film about the Jewish sports club Hakoah, Vienna, in the
1930s. After the film there will be a question and answer session with
Yaron Zilberman, the director of Watermarks, and with Ann-Marie Pisker, one
of the swimmers of Hakoah, who features in the film. This film is being
shown as part of the New Films >from Israel season.

Searching ROSINKO family of Daugavpils, and when they became ROSEN #general

Lois Rosen
 

Searching information on Abraham and Yetta ROSINKO >from Daugavpils.
They had 8 children. Son Leib, born 1892, left for NYC about 1913.
He played the violin. He became Louis Rosen. The other children were
Feiga -> US , Harry-> US, Tamara-> England, Channa and Rachel->
Germany, Schmuel->???, and another brother->???. I can find no
records for ROSINKO on Ellis Island site. Name change usually came
after arrival in US, but could Leib ROSINKO have become Louis ROSEN
before departure? He is listed on his original internal travel document
as Bin-Leib Abramov ROZINKO. Any insight or family ties?

Does anyone know how to get a good map of the City of Chicago? I have
tried thru AAA in New York with no success.
For a good online current map of Chicago, look at maps.google.com .

For some historic maps, check out the American Memory collection at the

I am searching for surname of my rabbinical family >from Raseiniai.
Have been told they were mentioned in a book on Latvian Rabbis by Levi
Ovchinsky in 1908, in Hebrew, and 1929 in Yiddish, Only given names
are listed. My gg grandmother, Drana, {Drane] was born [c] 1812 in
Raseiniai according to 1858 revision list. She was the daughter of
Meshulem Zalmen ben Aryey. Two of her brothers were Movsha Itsyk and
Aaron [Artshik]. I don't have dates of birth for them but have found
in 1816 Raseiniai revision list a family of ROZEMBERG'S as follows:
Head of house was Leyba [ which could be Aryey Leib] His father is
listed as Eliezer in Directories.
sons -Zelman and Itsyk.
children of Zelman are Movsha Itsyk, Shakhna Srol, Gita, and Ester.
Son of Itsyk was Liutka.
Daughter in law is Brayna. As no dates are given I can't be sure if
this Movsha Itsyk is an older brother of Drana
Movsha Itsyk served as rabbi in Goldigen and other areas of Latvia.
His brother Aaron [ Artshik] was a dayan [judge] in Tukkum as well as
Kovno.. He died about 1875.
Have found an Esther Rosenberg age 66 in 1874 living in Bauska, and a
Guta [Gita] in town of Piltene, both being in Latvia.
am trying to determine if this could have been my family. I assume
there will be records in Riga if I have a surname, as I was able to
find the information of Drane who married Gaon Rabbi Movhsa Lerenblatt
also >from Raseiniai. The latter couple moved to Courland in 1830.

Researchers are cordially invited to the next meeting of JFRA Israel's
Petah
Tikva branch:

8 pm, Wednesday, March 30
Home of Zehava Gertner, Petah Tikva

Speaker: Dr. Michael Toben, former faculty member, Bar Ilan University
Topic: "The British immigrant experience based on a survey among
descendants."

Dr. Toben's talk is based on an opinion survey conducted among children
and grandchildren of immigrants.

Although this specific program relates to Britain, the immigrant
experience
was similar in other countries. Even if immigrant ancestors did not
permanently remain in Britain, many did stay there for some time before
travelling to their final destinations, as they often had to earn enough
money to pay for the rest of their journey. Thus, this topic should be of
interest to all researchers.

Reservations recommended so hostess may properly set up for the meeting.

Re: Language of vitality records in Lututow #lodz #poland

Hello Dee,

My sense is that after 1868 many of the Vital Records were written in
Cyrillic Russian. I am sending you a sample >from page >from JewishGen that
indicates probability of it being in Russian: This is a link to that page:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lodz/LDS.htm

Searching: ERLICH: Rzgow, (near Piotrkow)

Good luck in your search.

Below is an English translation of "Akta 173," an 1874 Lodz birth record. To
see the original record, in Russian, click here.
1874 Birth Record of Josek Dawid Fajersztajn,
son of Lewek Fajersztajn and Hany Lipka
173. It occurred in the office of the clerk of civil affairs at the town of
Lodz in the year one thousand eight hundred seventy-four on the fourth of
June at eight o'clock in the morning, appeared Lewek Fajersztajn, age
twenty-two, residing in the town of Mishki. There also appeared Markus
Elberger, age fifty-five, and Bierka Hedlish, age forty, residents of the
place. They brought a male newborn claiming he was born on the first of June
of this year at two o'clock in the afternoon >from his wedded wife Hany, from
the house of Lipkow, age twenty. They named the male newborn Josek Dawid. It
was signed by the attendants.

These records should be written in Russian (I do not know where
Lututow is in Poland, there is a chance that it was in German in this
period, but if it is in Lodz area, it should be Russian). We've
received some archive documents (through JRI) >from the Lodz area,
dated by the end of 19th century, written in Russian with unusual
handwriting. We can try to read and translate them if you want.
