BRICKNER-SOLIS-RITTERBAND-PEIXOTTO Connection: #usa

JUDITH BERLOWITZ <jberlowitz@...>
 

On American Bio. Library, I just "discovered" that the
son of Miriam Peixotto (daughter of Dr. Daniel Levy
Maduro Peixotto & Rachel Mendes Seixas), Goodman
Davis, b. 1876, married a Benvenida ("Benveneda")
BRICKNER. My other BRICKNER, David (b. Bavaria 1840)
shows up on the 1880 census as being married to Sarah
(Sally) Maness RITTERBAND and having apparently
adopted the surname RITTERBAND. David and Sally were
living in the household of her parents Leon Maness R.
and Benvenida SOLIS (daughter of Jacob da Silva S. and
Charity Hays.)
My question: Could Benvenida BRICKNER be related to
David B? Does anyone have data on these people?
Would welcome any information.

German Jews in Rouxville, South Africa #germany

adamandlopa@...
 

I know for certain that the ARNHOLZ family was a
Jewish family >from Germany, resident in Rouxville in
the period that includes 1885 to 1888.
Were there any other Jewish families living or working
there in that period, especially families with
'eligible' batchelors, who might have been looking for
a German (or German speaking)Jewish wife? Please reply to:

Dear Sara
My ggf lived in Keidan >from where my parents emigrated to Wales
in 1925. In Riva's story on the Keidan website my mother tells
about her gf sending 2 sons to USA. I traced them to Pittsburgh
where 2 brothers of my ggf had settled and discovered a large
family. They told me of another brother, Samuel Wolkin, and
there was a letter >from a daughter with whom he lived in Joburg
dated 1948. I have not been able to trace any of that family
hence my query.
Two of my mother's brothers survived because their father sent
them away and they joined the Lithuanian Jewish unit of the red
army. One of them is still living in Rehovot and they are
mentioned in the Yizcor book which I have.
Thanks for your response.

Article: Using a Research Outline to Focus Your Genealogical Research
As a beginner or experienced genealogist, we are often educated about
sources of information to search such as census records or vital records.
All too often though, we access the records we know about and then run into
the proverbial 'wall'. Many researchers do not know how to or take the time
to methodically make a plan to determine what records are available or what
to research. Using a Research Outline to Focus Your Genealogical Research
will teach you how to use a research outline to focus your genealogical
research, solve your problems methodically and break through those 'walls'.

REZNIK is Russian for butcher, so that was a natural name for a shochet

24th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy #yiddish

David Harris <dorsharris@...>
 

Subject: The amazing 24th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy

Some questions have been asked about our website
<www.jewishgen.org/jerusalem2004> and when we are going to post the
registration form and program. The short answer is by the middle of
February.
The program committee is evaluating an enormous number of very
excellent papers that have been proposed. We promised to get this job
done by the end of January. Since proposals are still coming in, even
though the deadline was the end of December, we extended our own
deadline by a number of weeks. Believe me when I tell you that the
program will be positively outstanding. We have so many excellent
proposals - more than twice the number we can possibly have presented
- that we are going to be able to pick and chose only the absolute
best.
Hotel rates are already posted on our website - [direct link:
www.ortra.com/jgen2004/registration.asp]
I think you will be more than happy with the inexpensive rates we
have arranged. And don't forget that those rates include all service
charges and taxes as well as our famous, gigantic Israeli breakfast!!
[For myself, that is all I can manage to eat in a day!] The rates per
adult person in a double room are - are you ready for this? - between
$40 and $48. For sure it would cost you more just to stay at home! So
come to our magnificent and unique city of Jerusalem, which was one
of the official seven wonders of the world!
Our Conference is not only going to be outstanding as far as Archival
cooperation and input, but it is probably going to be the best
conference in terms of quality and breadth that the IAJGS has ever
had. We have prepared several databases which we have put on CDs and
which will be given free to full paying registrants. These include:
--The Memorials of Vanished Communities (the very first cataloging of
Israeli memorials of the Jewish Communities destroyed during the
Shoah);
--1875 Montifiore Census of the Jewish Population of Eretz Israel;
--Helkat Mehokek (Translation of Hebrew tombstone inscriptions found on
Mount of Olives);
--An Index to the Jacobi Collection of Family Trees;
--Sephardic and Mizrachi Genealogical Research in Israel;
--Index of Family and Private Archives at the Central Archives for the
History of the Jewish People (a collections of private and family
archives);
--A guide to the Archives and Archival Material for Genealogical Use in
Israel;
and more!
If you have any questions, join our online discussion group
"Jerusalem 2004 Discussion Group" for which you can register >from our
home page: <www.jewishgen.org/jerusalem2004>.
We look forward to hearing >from you and to seeing you in Jerusalem
