The census for 1866 of Durmenach would most likely be found in the
Archives Departemental in Colmar, or even possibly at the Mairie of
Durmenach.

R' Hillel of Paritch #rabbinic

George Mallen <georgemallen@...>
 

Hello everyone,

This is my first time communicating with this group, but I have read
your exchanges for several months. I have been researching the
family name MALISOFF or MALISOV. My research is relatively well
documented back to the mid 1800s. Currently there are 12 families
all beginning between 1820 and 1840, but no connections between the
families.

I found a Rabbi Hillel MALISOV on the Net, but cannot find any
children. All of my MALISOVs originated in the areas described
below. Below is a brief bio found on the internet.

Biographical note: Rabbi Hillel MALISOV, known as "Reb Hillel of
Paritch," was born in Khometz, Russia in 1795. In his youth, he was
a follower of Rabbi Mordechai of Chernobel, but was drawn toward
Chabad Chassidism by his study of Tanya and an encounter with
Chabad's founder, Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi. In 1815 he began to
travel regularly Rabbi Schneur Zalman's successor, Rabbi DovBer of
Lubavitch and, after the latter's passing, was a chassid of the
third Rebbe of Chabad, Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Lubavitch. Rabbi
Hillel served as rabbi in the towns of Paritch and Babroisk. He
passed away in Kherson in 1864. He is the author of Pelach HaRimon,
a book of Chassidic philosophy.

I can find a lot of material on his philosophy but little on his
life. I know he was married and his father was Meir Halevi MALISOV.

Any help or suggestions on how to close the gap between the 12
families and Rabbi MALISOV would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help

I recently found my GGrandmother buried in Mt Zion Lebanon Cemetary in
NYC. I expected her to be buried in the section reserved for the
"Lomza Aid Society" which I know my grandparents were active in.
Instead they have her buried in a section reserved for another Society
known as "Lomza Gatz." I would appreciate any information anyone might
have on this orgaization.

Hello,
I recently found out that at least some, if not all, members of my
WEISS
family (>from the general area of Michalovce, Presov, Vranov nad Toplou
and
Szuerthe (Strumkovka, UKR) are Levites, including probably my own
greatgrandfather (though his headstone is too worn for me to be
positive). So I'm wondering
if there are other people with WEISS relatives >from this area who may
also be
Levites. If so, I'd like to hear >from you and compare notes.
Thanks much!

Kaiserwald, Music #latvia

Two questions:

1. Does anyone know if the Kaiserwald records are available anywhere
outside of the Red Cross? Any chance they're being indexed?

2. As a violinist, I am very interested in whether any music has
survived >from the Jewish community of Latvia. If anyone knows of any -
recorded, published, or otherwise - I would love to hear of it.

Thank you.
