Searching: REST/RESHT, Spain > Poland #general

Stories circulating in the family say the REST/RESHT family
(who are Kohanim) were expelled >from Spain during the
Inquisition and fled to England. The family went to Plunge,
Lithuania, >from England by invitation of Prince Dux Oginsky
because they were specialists in the industries of wood,
and linen and established flour mills, and processing
wood mills on the rivers in the area.

I want to verify that this family lived in Spain and Poland.
I know the family lived in Plunge, Lithuania, >from which
some members emigrated to the US and others to South Africa.
I have searched all data and links including those on
the Sephardim without any success.

Has anyone come across this family in their research?

Almost certainly London, England.
Commercial Road is in the East End, hence the E? post-code.
If you search the web, you can find a Commercial Road E14.
This is the area where most of the Jewish community lived.
M&S could perhaps be Marks & Spencer, a British shop founded by Jews.

Hi List -

A few days ago "Steve Orlen" sorlen@email.arizona.edu
was looking for the site of a database of death
records he had once found, and since misplaced.

That data base is
http://www.rootsweb.com/~obituary/

It's called the Obituary Times, and is a volunteer
effort to create an index to published obituaries.

It's a great resource - if you find something there,
you can order the obituary >from a library or >from

Dear Lorraine,

I cannot provide you with any information on the photographer, I can
however, tell you that the address is a London address and in the
heart of London's East End. My father's printing business was
further east at 374 Commercial Road. The "E" after London does not
stand for England, but "East."

Dear Jenners:

Is there anyone in Caracas, Venezuela that can check on a
phone listing for Catherine and Irvin Lande?
Catherine KULPE LANDE is a cousin of my husband's.

In the 1964 obituary for her father, Isadore KULPE of
Birmingham, AL, it is indicated that he was survived by
his wife and daughter and 2 grandchildren.When she married
Irvin LANDE in 1948, Catherine was a student and Irvin, a
college instructor. We are eager to know of their
whereabouts and about their children and grandchildren.

Please respond privately. I will gladly trade research
in Washington DC with respondents.

More AGAD Galician Indices Now Online #general

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

Recently, Stanley Diamond announced that substantial new data has
been added to the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland database,
including data up through 1903, the cut-off year for the 100
years Polish privacy rule.

I am proud to announce that this new data includes a good deal of
new indices indexed at the AGAD Archives for towns in the eastern
part of the former Austrian province of Galicia. Over 40,000 AGAD
vital record indices have been added to the database at
http://www.jri-poland.org/jriplweb.htm. Thanks to the efforts of
the AGAD indexing team in Warsaw and Michael Tobias, there are
now about 500,000 vital record indices for 69 eastern Galician
towns in the JRI-Poland database.

To find information about the status of indexing for the 87
Administrative towns that are part of the AGAD project, please go
to http://www.jri-poland.org/agad/agadtowns.html.

If your ancestral town was near one of the towns noted below,
your town's records could have been registered in one of these
Administrative towns. The Jewish communities in these
Administrative towns collected the vital records for all the
towns in its district. The indices in the database include
reference to the town in which the vital event occurred. Search
the database for your surname and set "Province" to "Ukraine."
This will result in only AGAD record indices being displayed in
your search results.

The indices do not have all the genealogical relevant
information. You can order the actual record >from the AGAD
Archives using the new Shopping Basket ordering system.

The following vital record indices have been added:

Yehuda Avrohom Eber ROZENBERG [1831-1916] was my great-grandfather.
He received the name after his grandfather Avrohom Eber of Zavidke
[1787-1831].

A bit of Family History: When my ggrandfather’s son was born and
the bris mohel called out “...and he will be called:” Avrohom Eber
blurted out “Avrohom Boruch”, not considering that ‘Avrohom’ was
also his own name. Afterwards Avrohom Eber corrected the lapse
in memory by adding “Alter” to his son’s name and “Yehuda” to his own.
“Yehuda” was the name of his maternal great-grandfather, Yehuda
Kahane [1755-1819], the “Kuntras Hasfekos”, Av Bes Din of Szighet,
Hungary. My ggrandfather after adding “Yehuda” to his name, became
known as Yidel Eber ROZENBERG.

January 2004 update for Yizkor Book Project #romania

Joyce Field
 

Happy Presidents' Day to All.

My apologies to all for the late update on additions to the Yizkor
Book site for January 2004. I was out of town during the time I
usually prepare this monthly report but the efficient volunteers for
the Yizkor Book Project continued to work and donors continued to
submit new translations. Without these two important groups the
translation project could not exist. I can never thank them enough.

During January we produced 6 new entires and 17 updates. They are
flagged in the alphabetical listing at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html

New entries:

Pinkas HaKehillot Lita:
-Dotnuva
-Rumsiskes (Romsishok)
-Siluva
Pinkas HaKehillot Poland:
-Jagielnica, Ukr
Yidishe Shtet
-Dotnuva
-Siluva

Updates:
-Brzeziny, Poland
-Byarosa, Belarus
-Czyzew, Poland
-Dusetos, Lith
-Bedzin, Poland
-Gabin, Poland: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/gombin/gombin.html
-Gabin, Poland: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/gombin2/gombin2.html
-Gorodenka, Ukr
-Lida, Belarus
-Lenin, Belarus
-Losice, Poland
-Mlawa, Poland
-Oradea, Romania
-Ruzhany, Belarus
-Sosnowiec, Poland, volume 1
-Sosnowiec, Poland, volume 2
-Wyszogrod, Poland


There are many books yet to be translated, waiting only for an eager
volunteer to step up to coordinate a translation project. Our Yizkor
Book Project staff is available to help you through the
process. Please contact me if you are willing and able to coordinate
a translation project. Or, if you have Hebrew or Yiddish translation
skills, you might want to start by volunteering to translate a
chapter >from the Pinkas HaKehillot on your ancestral town. Informaton
at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/donation/ will explain part of
the process.

Many of our projects are fundraising projects. You can help by
contributing money to pay to have these books professionally
translated. The current fundraising projects are listed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.html.

Thanks again for all the help and support our readers have provided
to the Yizkor Book Project over the years. We hope that these new
translations will help you with your research.

There are many books yet to be translated, waiting only for an eager
volunteer to step up to coordinate a translation project. Our Yizkor
Book Project staff is available to help you through the
process. Please contact me if you are willing and able to coordinate
a translation project. Or, if you have Hebrew or Yiddish translation
skills, you might want to start by volunteering to translate a
chapter >from the Pinkas HaKehillot on your ancestral town. Informaton
at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/donation/ will explain part of
the process.

Many of our projects are fundraising projects. You can help by
contributing money to pay to have these books professionally
translated. The current fundraising projects are listed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.html.

Thanks again for all the help and support our readers have provided
to the Yizkor Book Project over the years. We hope that these new
translations will help you with your research.
