Buenos Aires Cemeteries #general

Josie Barnett <josieb@...>
 

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Jacob Rosen for posting the website for Buenos Aires Jewish
Cemeteries.

After a number of years of enquiries I have finally found when my Great Uncle
Jaime Chidekel died and where he is buried. I will now be able to observe his
Yartzeit. If there is anybody out there in Buenos Aires who can help me get a
photo of the grave which is at Berzaategui, that would be greatly appreciated too.
As far as I know he had no descendants - I think there may have been a nephew on
his wife's side but I am not sure.

Seeking information in France #france

Thomas F. Weiss
 

Dear fellow JGenners,

I need your advice and your help. Here is my story.

For 20 months during 1940-1941, my mother and I were refugees
in Europe. Most of that time was spent in France awaiting various
documents required to escape Europe. We lived in Neris-les-Bains and
Marseille. In October 1941, when I was about 6 years old, my mother
and I tried to leave France and enter Spain via the Pyrenees
Mountains, a common escape route. We were arrested in Cerbere by
customs officers who worked out of the civil court in Ceret. I have a
copy of the report of the arresting officers. We spent some time in
jail and were eventually released.

I have written to various agencies in France to try to learn
more about our lives in France. At first I sent emails and letters
in English and received few response. Then, with the help of a
friend, I sent emails and letters in French. I have had little or no
luck in getting any information.

I have written to the mayor's office in Neris-les-Bains to
see if they had an records of our lives there.

I wrote to civil offices in Cerbere and Ceret. I did get one
reponse to an email which said that information about arrest and
court proceedings might be found in archives located in Perpignan. I
wrote to the archives in French and have received no response.

I am stuck. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I might
get further information? I am writing a family history for my
grandchildren and would like to include as much factual information
as I can.

Many thanks for your consideration,

Postscript: Ready to hear a miracle?

First, I misspelled my benefactor's name. Please forgive me, and thank
you again,
Professor Kagnovich!

Second, I note that the JewishGen staff put an appeal under my
announcement for all to contribute to JewishGen because of the help it
gives to our research. I second this. I give a small donation monthly. I
hope everyone else does! Let's all dig as deep as we can. Do you know of
any group that is doing more to help us make connections to our past and
to reconstruct a beautiful culture that was brutally destroyed?

Re: Rabbi Matisyahu Treves #rabbinic

jcoh003@...
 

All right, here's my two cents.

I can't add much to this but one thing I do know is that the MaHaRaM
Padua was born in 1482, and his grandfather R. Yechiel Luria was
born 1430. Furthermore according to my information (don't know the
source sorry), Miriam Spira was born in 1403, and R. Aharon Luria
was born in 1413. Going up in the generations, R. Shimshon Luria
must have been born at the latest around 1350, and this is what my
information states.

Working down >from R' Matityahu Treves who was born in 1325, Miriam
Spira couldn't have been born before 1385. It would seem highly
unlikely that she could have married R. Shimshon Luria, rather she
must have married R. Aharon Luria.

My information states that R. Yehuda Sir Leon was either R. Yosef
Treves the Great's grandfather or his great-grandfather. Of course
the Treves family lineage is known up to Rashi through the RiBaM.

Incidentally can anyone clarify the Sir Leon connection? And is
this Luria family connected with the Ari z"l at all? I have never
been able to find any information regarding his yichus.

Seeking Info & Descendents of Benny KATZ of NYC #galicia

Marlene Bishow <mlbishow@...>
 

Hi Genners:

Seeking descendents of Benny (Benjamin) KATZ. He was living in 712-14 East
6th Street, NYC in September, 1907 when nephew, Sam (aka Shimon) KATZ came
to US. He may have had a limp and wrote beautiful calligraphy. He was living
in the early 1930's, as my father (bron 1923) remembers him. We have no
photographs of him. Sam KATZ was my grandfather and he lived for a time with
his uncle.

Benny was the son of Aaron and Rose KATZ of Zuravno, Galicia, Austria. His
brothers were Leo, Max and Jacob. He may have been the only one of the
brothers to come to the US, although many nieces and nephews came between
1907 and 1921.

Notary records in Przemysl State Archive #galicia

I am interested to hear >from anyone with experience accessing notary records
in the State Archive in Przemysl. How did you arrange this, can you
recommend any researchers, did you encounter any difficulties, how were the
records organized, etc.? My particular interest is in the Lancut records,
which I understand >from the Routes to Roots Foundation website exist for the
years 1861-1934.
