Yizkor Book Project, February 2018 #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am quite excited to let you know about the highlights of the Yizkor
Book Project during February 2018.

So why am I excited? Well, to begin we uploaded the final translations
of no less than three projects:

- Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine (Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book).
This project was coordinated by Marilyn Levinson and an enormous amount
of thanks goes out to volunteers, Sara Mages and Yocheved Klausner, who
were responsible for translating the bulk of this book.

- Lenin, Belarus (The community of Lenin; memorial book). Sadly, the
coordinator of this project, Sanford A. Kaplan z"l, is no longer with us.
Over the years, both professional and volunteer translators contributed
to this project that he initiated and once again, Sara and Yocheved
played an integral role in seeing it through to its successful completion.

- Vishnevets, Ukraine (Memorial book to the martyrs of Vishnevets who
perished in the Nazi Holocaust) This project was coordinated by the
remarkable duo of Ellen Garshick and Ronald D. Doctor of the Kremenets
District Research Group. They already have a number of other completed
projects under their belt and we salute them for their dedication in
seeing yet another complete book become available online.

Last month, I would like to mention a number of new entries that have
been added in. Some of the entries concern the agricultural communities
that existed in the Ukraine at the beginning of the 19th century which
make for interesting and enlightening reading. In addition, I would also
like to point out an entry that was added about the Cluj District >from
the "Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania". This entry, in
particular, is of significance in that it covers quite a few small
communities >from that area, information about which is often difficult
to find.

I should also note the welcome contribution of Esther Weinschelbaum who
has voluntarily translated into Hebrew, the Yiddish sections >from the
Yizkor book of Wojslawice, Poland. This enables our Hebrew readers to
glean the information and the stories >from the parts of the book that
they would otherwise be unable to read and we thank Esther for the many
such translations she has provided for us.

Again, this past month, a new book was published by the Yizkor Book in
Print Project and they are deserving of our grateful thanks. The book,
"Memorial Book of Nowy-Dwor", is a translation of the Yizkor book of
Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki, Poland. The number of published books continues to
grow and as we complete projects, as we have done in the past month, they
join as possible candidates for publishing. We do see a growing interest
in having and holding these unique books and they are even a unique gift
idea for the coming Pesach/Passover holiday. If you are interested in
seeing what books are available for purchase, please see the link at the
end of this report.

Which reminds me, if we don't "speak" before then, I do wish you and your
families a very memorable, warm and significant Pesach/Passover holiday.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out
in the Yizkor Book Project in February.

Re: Aglasterhausen Displaced Children's Home [Followup & SITE CITE] #germany

A while ago, I posted a request regarding the above referenced
Children's Home.
Due to the death of a family member who resided at this home after
surviving the Shoah, I wanted to
learn a bit more. I did receive some responses and did thank those
who responded directly.

I am writing today to point out that an article regarding the
Children's Home recently appeared online at
the following address:
http://www.hagalil.com/2018/02/kanada/#more-49392
It is in German; however I was told that Google Translate does a
reasonable translation.
My only connection to the article is that I did supply some
information regarding the Gross family and also the family photo.

Research question: THORMAN origins [and possible Cleveland Ohio connection] #germany

Bonnie Birns
 

Dear Genners,

In anticipation of the 2019 IAJGS conference in Cleveland, Ohio, I would
like to solve a question about my husband's 3rd great-grandfather Henry
THORMAN. I am posting in both the General list and GerSig for archival
purposes.

Research Questions:
1. To prove or disprove a connection to Simpson THORMAN, the first Jew
of Cleveland.
2. Secondary Question: To find ancestral town in Germany and names of
parents of Henry THORMAN.

Brith Sholom (Covenant of Peace), beginning 1851, Trustee of synagogue
1852, 1855, 1859 (Source: Consider the Years: the story of the Jewish
Community of Easton)
3. Marriage to Esther MEYER sometime between arrival and birth of first
child (1847-1850)
4. 1860 census, Easton, PA; Henry DORMAN, age 36; pedlar; born Hanover;
with wife Esther; 3 sons
5. By 1865, living in Manhattan, New York;

and age 56. Not with any family. Wife Esther buried in Mt. Hope, Brooklyn,
, NY.
9. Families THORMANN were living in Altenmuhr / Muhr am See near Gunzenhausen
(since before 1800), Scheinfeld near Neustadt a.d. Aisch (since before 1800)
and Unsleben near Bad Neustadt a.d. Saale (since 1811). (Source:
Dictionary of Jewish Families >from Germany, Lars Menk)

Children of Henry and Esther THORMAN:
1. Henry Thorman 1850 - 1921
2. Jacob H Thorman 1854 - 1930
3. Abraham Loeb Thorman 1857- 1930
4. Tillie Thorman Schramm 1861 - 1924
5. Philip Thorman 1865 - 1947
6. Cyrus Seligman Thorman 1868 - 1950

Simpson (Simson) THORMAN facts:
1. Born Unsleben, Bavaria, Germany; parents Schmuel and Bunla
2. Acknowledged as the first Jew to settle in Cleveland, Ohio by 1837
3. Immigration: Assumed to arrive in America in the late 1820s, before
settling in Cleveland
4. ALSBACHER Party; 19 other Jews >from Unsleben, including siblings

Jewish community. The booklet begins with a letter dated May 5, 1839
>from Lazarus Kohn, teacher of the Jewish community. The booklet includes
a prayer and ends with a list of 233 fellow Unslebeners - probably all
the Jews in this town of about 1,000 inhabitants. Source:
Clevelandjewishhistory.net

There are no other THORMANs on this list of 233 Jews remaining in Unsleben.

Follow up questions:
1. Why did Henry go to Easton, PA instead of Cleveland, OH?
2. What other documents could I find to show parents and town of Henry?
ie. Marriage record in Easton, PA?
3. Could Henry be from Altenmuhr or Scheinfeld instead of Unsleben?
What documents exist that could prove/disprove this? (I have searched
JewishGen Germany database). Thank you for your interest,

I don't have any specific information about the family or Records Project. But I'm
from Romania and I see that Petrova is in Transylvania, so it would have been part
of the Austro-Hungarian empire at the time (until WWI). I'm >from Bucharest but my

I also live in Livermore and speak Romanian. If i can be of any assistance, feel

I am new to this list and am a member of the Livermore-Amador Genealogical
Society (of California, USA). I am trying to assist someone with their family
Research. The Family name is APPELBAUM (with alternate spellings such as
Applebaum, Apfelbaum, etc.). The given names are Samuel and Clara both born
per census/naturalization records around 1866/7 in Partoza Austria, a
location I have not been able to find. However I did locate a Petrova,
Romania and was wondering if Petrova could have been part of the Austrian
Empire at the time of the births. Can anyone confirm this possibility?

Samuel and Clara were married around 1888 since the 1910 census there were
married 22 years as of that census year.

If Petrova is their true birth area, per the The Maramaros County Jewish
Records Indexing Project, their birth could be included in Register Book #565
and their marriage in Register Book #1292. If some one, who has access,
could check those records and provide me the results, it would be greatly
appreciated.

Per census and other records they immigrated to the US in 1895 and 1897
respectively but have not yet been able to locate their immigration manifest.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I am new to this list and am a member of the Livermore-Amador Genealogical
Society (of California, USA). I am trying to assist someone with their family
Research. The Family name is APPELBAUM (with alternate spellings such as
Applebaum, Apfelbaum, etc.). The given names are Samuel and Clara both born
per census/naturalization records around 1866/7 in Partoza Austria, a
location I have not been able to find. However I did locate a Petrova,
Romania and was wondering if Petrova could have been part of the Austrian
Empire at the time of the births. Can anyone confirm this possibility?

Samuel and Clara were married around 1888 since the 1910 census there were
married 22 years as of that census year.

If Petrova is their true birth area, per the The Maramaros County Jewish
Records Indexing Project, their birth could be included in Register Book #565
and their marriage in Register Book #1292. If some one, who has access,
could check those records and provide me the results, it would be greatly
appreciated.

Per census and other records they immigrated to the US in 1895 and 1897
respectively but have not yet been able to locate their immigration manifest.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I have uploaded three vital records in Polish for translation. They
are all for my maternal grandfather's SZNAJDER branch who (so far)
originated in Opole Lubelskie, Poland moving to Ostrowiec and Chodel.
Many details about individuals are as yet unfound (for example, my
3x great grandmother's maiden name and birth date), so I appreciate
as much information as possible. Some specific questions are posted
with each record.

Please respond using the ViewMate form.

Inheritance of real property, Nowy Sacz, 19th century #general

Paula Blank
 

My GGGGGF, Marcus Mordechai Langer was a member of the Nowy Sacz kehilla.
He left his brick house to his sons Gershon (1803 - 1882) and Chaim. I
think I found another son who had moved to Slovakia/Hungary. Would a
father leave his house only to the sons who stayed in the same city?

Thanks,
Paula Langer Blank
