KLAUSNER #galicia

Debbie Raff
 

Joel,
I did not see the original query, but I recently added a list of resident
names >from Nowy Sacz to my Nowy Sacz ShtetLink site. This list was compiled
by Bill Leibner.

There are over 20 KLAUSNERS listed in this file. One KLAUSNER appears to
have had a paint store, although no first name is associated with that
particular entry. A variety of sources were used to compile the list. It
looks like many of the KLAUSNERS have Testimony Pages housed at Yad Vashem.
So, once the Yad Vashem info. goes online (shortly, I hope), perhaps that
would be another way of linking the Nowy Sacz branch of KLAUSNERS to you own
branch. To see Bill's list, go to:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Nowy_Sacz/ and click on "A List of
4,232 Jewish Residents of Nowy Sacz"

Another possibility would be to go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Sacz/
and ask folks there, if they are familiar with the KLAUSNER family. This
group is an offshoot of the ShtetLink site, and there are over 70 members at
this time. You do need to subscribe to do this, but it is free.

Good luck,
Debbie Raff

information it would
be most appreciated."

His query provides an excellent opportunity to remind Galician researchers
about the incredible JewishGen database of "The 1891 Galician Business
Directory," containing over 20,000 names >from over 1,000 different towns
covering the length and breadth of Galicia:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/galicia1891.htm

For each entry, the database contains the following fields: Surname, Given
Name, Town Name, Occupation (in German), and Occupation (translated into
English), and includes Jews and non-Jews, which means you can also identify
the Polish magnates who "owned" the towns and villages (and mills, taverns,
and distilleries!) your ancestors lived in, and, possibly worked for.
(Another excellent avenue of research for some.) You can also download the
entire list of entries for one particular town--quite useful in identifying
family and business connections, along with providing a socio-economic
"snapshot" of your ancestral shtetl at one point in time.

In ten seconds of searching I identified the following 14 KLAUSNER entries,
some of whom ARE in involved in the glassmaking and toy businesses Joel
refers to. >from here, he can go on to search the JRI-Poland database for
the existence and location of vital records on these individuals,
and--possibly--gain vast results in another thirty seconds of so of
research. Not bad...even for busy researchers!

Here are the results:

NAME TOWN OCCUPATION

KLAUSNER, N - Dynow - Guesthouse/innkeeper
KLAUSNER , Jacob - Rymanow - Guesthouse/innkeeper
KLAUSNER, N - Dynow Wine Dealer
KLAUSNER, Leiser - Jawornik - Glass & China Dealers
KLAUSNER, Elias - Bochnia - Breweries
KLAUSNER, Aron - Brzesko - Fashion Accessories/Toy Dealer
KLAUSNER, Isaak - Dabrowa - Notions & Materials (fabrics)
KLAUSNER, Chune - Tarnow - Egg Dealers And Importers
KLAUSNER, Feiwel - Wisnicz - Egg Dealers And Importers
KLAUSNER, A - Dynow - Iron/metalware Dealer
KLAUZNER, Leiser - Jawornik - Grocery/delicatessen
KLAUZNER, Isaac - Brzesko - Clothes Dealer
KLAUZNER, Isaac - Brzesko - Dress Dealer
KLAUZNER, Leiser - Jawornik - Grain & Produce Dealer

So don't forget to use this excellent resource (and the 1929 Polish Business
Directory, if applicable) when starting your Galician research, along with
the additional information available on the Gesher Galicia website:

How would I go about researching Jewish history of

Thanks

As in most other cases, my first act would be to do a Google search for the
two terms "Tomsk Jews" (without the quotes). I just did that, and found 1630
hits, some of them apparently to the point. Google is your friend, and an
excellent starting point for virtually any inquiry.

After that, my inclination would be to get to the nearest library likely to
have a copy of Pinkas haKehillot (TAU, in your case). I don't know for a
fact that those volumes contain an article about Tomsk, but it's a likely
shot. >from that point, I'd look at the Jewish Encyclopedia, and consult the
librarian and the card catalogue.

Rose - thank you for the opportunity to have a glimpse of what so many of
us had missed!
However, is it possible to give us the identity of individual persons in the
photos, in the same order as they are shown in the pictures of speakers and
smaller groups?

Perhaps we can then match the names of those whose messages we often read on
the JewishGen Discussion Group, etc. - but whom we have never met - to faces
in the photos.

Networking in another fashion!

Thank you.

My question is since he was listed as Reb, does this mean that he
was a Rabbi?
If he was a Rabbi,how would I go about finding out more information on him?

Marilyn Cooper Hall
Dear Marilyn,

No, "Reb" does not mean Rabbi. "Reb" is simply Yiddish for "Mr."

If the deceased was actually a rabbi he would probably have been
described as "Ha-Rav ." (The Rabbi ) or as "Moreinu Rabbeinu"
("our teacher, our Rabbi") followed by his name.
