Lithuanian Vital Records Indexing Project Update - Vilna Vital Records Challenge Grant #southafrica

Joel Ratner
 

I am pleased to announce the funds necessary to take full advantage of the
$1000 challenge grant by the Baron family have been received. These
contributions, along with the matching funds, will allow approximately two
years worth of Vilna city records to be translated. There are 80 years worth
of records in total for Vilna, so we are off to a good start.
The ability to complete all remaining records will require similar
contributions on the part of others. If anyone else wishes to make a similar
challenge grant, please contact me at Joelrat1@hotmail.com .

I am a bit surprised by your links with Peter

from Poland, as we have a common cousin, Eve Klein,

[the same as I] >from the Fuchs-Redlich (Bisenz) side
and Peter's second cousin >from the Barber side.

Well Tsvi - what you do not realise is that now your
tree and Peter Barber's, Ruth Coman's and mine have
also merged ... and possible Jane Reber's and Randy
Schoenberg's too.

The link is real and confirmed:

KAFKA-SALUS-SCHUSSLER-BACHRACH-BIACH-KOHN
[changed to Kerner].

The latter family is mine.

Now you must work out the following link with Peter:

FUCHS-REDLICH-KLEIN-BARBER to SALUS and then we are
all linked.

Links [chains] are very complex but fun! And that
should be one of our "raison d'etre", namely to have a
bit of fun, with our fellow SIGGERS!

So, tonight there will be dancing in the streets of
Bisenz and Bratislava [Pressburg, Presporek, Pozsony]
too. More Bim Bam Bom all around.

How many more links can we find? I have recently found
a link for a 1790s Bremen-Danish POLLAK family with a
Sephardic family >from Livorno, [dello STROLOGO],
resident in Alexandria, Egypt since the 1850s. These
POLLAKS are probably linked to some of ours - if we
only knew how.

That is what I understand by the "Family Tree of the
Jewish People".

Re: Kreises in Moravia? #austria-czech

Moravia had same pattern of "Kreise" (czech "Kraj") like all the
other parts of Austro-Hungarian monarchy.
I don't remember where I found (and collected) detailed maps for
counties like Bruenn/Brno, Iglau/Jihlava, Olmuetz/Olomouc, Prerau/Prerov,
Teschen/Tesin and so on >from 1848 including "krajska hranice" and

1793 census of Jews in Bohemia #austria-czech

Zimmer-Luedinghausen@...
 

A few days ago I ordered Volume II of the "1793 census of Jews in
Bohemia" which I received today.

I believe to have found my ggggrandparents in one of the villages.
I was surprised that in most of the villages there was only one
jewish family.
This is the case with a KRAUS family I am looking for.

For quite some time I was trying to find the parents of my
gggrandmother Elisabeth / Bele LANG nee KRAUS.

from her son's birth certificate I knew she was >from a small
place near Prague called Horni Pocernice (Ober Potschernitz).
from the two different burial lists of the old Olsany cemetery
in Prague I found out that her father was on one list called
Moshe Kraus and on the other list he was called Meir Kraus.

Now I thought that the 1793 census would give me more information
about Bele's father and family.

I knew she could not be mentioned in the Census because she was
born in 1802, 9 years after the census was taken. But I thought
I could find her family.

I found one Kraus Family in Ober Potschernitz (in fact the
only Jewish family in this village) but the head of the family is
not Mosche or Meir Kraus but Jachim Kraus, he is married and has
got four sons. Perhaps in 1802 he had a daughter called
Elisabeth / Bele.

In a village called Kralovice (Kralowitz), about 5 miles away
from Ober Potschernitz I found a Moises Kraus (this time 7 jewish
families in this village), married with 2 daughters. Perhaps he is
Elisabeth's father.

Now my new book doesn't really help but makes things even more
complicated.

Perhaps someone of you who is more familiar with this census and
can give me an advice how to clarify my assumptions. Or am I on
the wrong track?

BTW Will there also be a Volume for the City of Prague or is
it already published?

Navigating the Landsmanshaften listings #belarus

Jerome Seligsohn <jselig1315@...>
 

Correspondents have complained to me about being
unable to locate their landsmanshaft on the
www.jgsny.org website. Often they do a simple
alphabetic search and then give up their examining.
Please remember that the aphabetic listing may be
subsumed under header names such as Association, Bnai,
Chevra anshei, Congregation Anshei, Erste, First,
Independent, Ladies, New, Progressive, United and
Young.
I have been working on all RG's >from 1600 to today's
1742. As I accumulate several new collections they are
added to the list. My archiving is limited to the
records deposited with the New York Sate Department of
Insurance which passes on the records to YIVO Archives.
In addition I often add new records to old collections
which, at this time, is not noted on the current
listing. This is to remind us that your last
examination of the records may require a new search.
