Searching in London England.
Can any one suggest how to find ancestors of an almost extinct family,

Our name is BERENBLUT. We are such a small family now, and we are
desperately looking for ancestors. A small branch lives today in London,
England, but we can not find any roots. Can any one suggest a way to find
these roots in London ? The spelling might be Berenblut, Bernblut,
Berenbluth, Bernbluth, or even Barenblut or Barnblut.
We have tried getting information >from various sources, but so far we were
unlucky.
Thanks.

The headstone for Isaac Moris Pochter
[Yitzh.aq Moshe] says he is the son of Getzel

ben reb Getzel

I was told that this is a Yiddish diminutive and not
a Hebrew name.

I did find an entry at the Jewishgen names database, but I want to be
sure I understand this correctly -

The Yiddish origin of Getzel is >from the Germ Goetz, Gottschalk, and
a Legal/Hebrew name would be Elyaqim Gets\Getsa\Getsil\Getsl

The origin of the name is Kings II 18:18

So, when I am looking for official documents, it is likely that I
won't see the the given name Getzel, but rather one of these listed
official names?
Not necessarily. It is very common for only the 'kinnui' (nickname) to
appear in official documents. Just as a Judka might very well be documented
only as "Leib" or "Leiba" (a usual kinnui for this Hebrew name), it is quite
likely that your relative will show up only as "Getzel" or something
similar. But keep your eyes peeled for "Elyakim" as well, of course.

As far as we know right now, this family was >from Lida, Vilna, now
located in Belarus.

Thanks for any light you can shed on this name.

Help in Interpreting Your Galician Vital Records #poland

Mark Halpern
 

JRI-Poland has created an aid to help you understand and
interpret the Galician Jewish vital records that you obtain from
the Archives in Warsaw (AGAD), Przemysl, Rzeszow, Lviv, and other
repositories of Galician records. You will be able to view and
print images of the headings of representative birth, marriage,
and death records along with translations of these headings.

from the JRI-Poland homepage at http://www.jri-poland.org, click
on "Tips/Other Links" under "Learn." Then click on "A Guide to
Headings of 19th Century Galician Jewish Vital Record Forms
(.PDF)."

from the AGAD Archives Project webpage at
http://www.jri-poland.org/agad/index.htm, scroll down to
"Interpreting Your Galician Vital Records" and click the
hyperlink in the second paragraph.

This aid to interpreting your Galician vital records is in PDF
format, which requires that you have Adobe Acrobat reader, which
can be downloaded for free at http://www.adobe.com.

Before 1877, Jewish record keeping was not standardized and the
records did not have an abundance of information, some just the
barest information. Not all records used the same form or
recorded the same information. In 1877, the forms used to record
Jewish vital events was standardized. These data fields were
included on every form used for Jewish registrations >from 1877 up
to World War II. The data fields were always the same, but the
filling in of the forms by the local Jewish registrar was not
always consistent.

I think this will be helpful to those who have acquired or will
be acquiring Galician vital records >from the Polish State
Archives using the JRI-Poland Shopping Basket Order System.

Choroszcz Landsmanshaft? #poland

Fine Family <mafine@...>
 

Hi,

Does anyone know any information about a Chevra Kadisha or Landsmanshaft
called "Congregation Mogen David Anshei Choroszcz"? My ggrandparents
are buried in their section in Washington Cemetery (Brooklyn), and my
grandparents in their section in Mt.Zion Cemetery (Queens). At least in
Washington Cemetery the gate at the entrance is completely worn away so
it wasn't possible to see any names or other information about the Cong.

Thanks!

Telsiai and Varniai Photographs #lithuania

Howard Margol <homargol@...>
 

Chaim Kaplanski was a famous Jewish photographer in Telsiai >from 1894 to
1940. Many of his photographs, on glass negatives, are in the "ALKA" Museum
in Telsiai. The museum has prepared a proposal to restore these
historically, highly significant negatives, and transfer the resulting
photographs to a digital computer database. The museum is seeking financial
support >from the Lithuanian Ministry of Culture, Telsiai regional
municipality, various organizations, businesses, and private individuals. If
the project is successful, access to the photographs will be available
online >from around the world.

The museum accomplished a similar project which resulted in important photos
from the 1935-1939 Varniai Jewish Community having a new lease on life. If
you are interested, contact Marina Petrauskiene, Alka Museum, Muziejaus
g.31, LT-5610, Telsiai, Lithuania.

Please do not ask me about the photographs as I am not familiar with them.
