There was a Jozef with a wife of unknown name born abt. 1825
They had six children: Arthur, Franciska, Jenny, Julia, Laura, Roza.
All were born in the vicinity of 1850.
Julia deceised 1908. She was married to Arnold Eisler of Budapest, marriage
took place at Nagybecskerek at the time Hungary, (now Zrenjanin - in now former
Jugoslavia)

I will appreciate any leads or help

Sorry to see that so many have been left out on both sides. On the other
hand, I do agree that it is easy to make the overstatement. If we consider
musicians, as well as composers, conductors and artists in general, I am
afraid, that
even without actual accounting, probably the majority would have Jewish
background, even if, or specifically if well assimilated into the Hungarian
society. By the way, just the other day I found out that Franz Lehar was not
only
Jewish, but rescued during the Holocaust by the brother of Hermann Goering,
Albert. With so many name changes it is a difficult to tell at once. But,
then that
was the reason for the name changes anyway. There are many Hungarians, who
are not aware of the fact, that Sigmund Romberg composer of many Broadway
shows
was not only Jewish, hut Hungarian as well. We can, and have to be very
proud
of what such small nations have produced and given the world.

The Memoirs of ASCHER LEVY, in French #france

Ernest Kallmann <ernest.kallmann@...>
 

Cercle de Genealogie Juive, Paris, announces the forthcoming publication
in French of

Les Mémoires d'Ascher Levy, de Reichshoffen (1598-1635).

ASCHER LEVY, who lived some 100 years earlier than the well-known
GLUECKEL HAMELN, has written a manuscript in Hebrew script and language.
He tells his own life, >from his birth in 1598 to 1635. A German
translation has been published in 1913 by Moise Ginsburger.

This first translation into French by Ernest Kallmann has been enhanced
and improved by Prof. Simon Schwarzfuchs, who has reverted to the
original manuscript. The story shows the risky and painful life of the
Jews during the Thirty Years War, as experienced in his private, family
and business life by a learned country rabbi.

ASCHER was born in Bavaria, he lives in Alsace and Lorraine, his Hebrew
is interspersed with jiddisch-deutsch words when no Hebrew equivalent is
available. He nevertheless is proud of his sefardic origin, his
great-grandfather who lived in Landau around 1500 was one of the first
Spanish immigrants after the 1492 expulsion >from Portugal.

The book will be available early December 2003, for 22.50 Euro plus
postage.

A special launch discount is offered to subscribers whose order arrives
prior to November 15 : 15 Euros plus surface mail postage : 1.50 Euros
for France, 4 Euros Western Europe, 7.50 Euros rest of the World. An
ordering bulletin is posted on the website of the Cercle
(www.genealoj.org, go to Quoi de Neuf ?/What's new ?) and can be
printed. When filled out, please join your bank check - in Euro only -
or show your credit card number (Visa preferred), and mail it to Cercle

Re: 3 names in 1 family #galicia

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

Jacqueline:

The situation you describe was quite "normal" in Galicia. The
Austrian authorities were intent upon assimilating the Jews in
their territories. They made it difficult for Jews to marry by
taxing Jewish civil marriages and even, at one time, not allowing
more than one son in a family to marry. These restrictions did
not deter the Jews of Galicia, who viewed marriage as a religious
event and not a civil event. However, these religious marriages
were not recognized by the Austrian authorities, so children of
these "unmarried" parents were considered illegitimate by the
authorities. The result was that the child was assigned the
mother's surname. If the mother was also "illegitimate" then she
legally carried her mother's surname.

Even though the laws were clear on how illegitimate births were
to be recorded, the practice of naming by the vital record
registrars in the Jewish community was not consistent. Therefore,
Abraham and Mariam could have children recorded with three
different surnames. Also, the surname recorded was not
necessarily the surname used by the individual in his/her
everyday life.

Today, Galician Jewish genealogists can thank the authorities as
one birth record can identify three family surnames for further
research.

This situation is not easily explained. There have been some
previous discussion in this forum. I would suggest that you
search the Galicia SIG archives at
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~sigspop and
read more on the topic of civil marriage and illegitimate births.

My grand-parents Abraham ASCHER and Mariam POLLAK or TREITLER
lived in
Stanislawow (Galicia);. Between 1900 and 1910 they had 4
children; Here are
their names : Osias TREITLER, Golda ASCHER, Salomon POLLAK and
Herschl
ASCHER. In the Belgian certificates of marriage etc, Osias
TREITLER is the
son of Mariam TREITLER and Abraham ASCHER; Salomon POLLAK is
the son of
Mariam POLLAK and Abraham ASCHER. Everybody tells me Mariam
TREITLER and
Mariam ASCHER are the same woman.
Abraham ASCHER died in New York, his wife in Stanislawow. I
don't find that
Mariam POLLAK or TREITLER in the JRI.
Can somebody explain me how the same woman can have 2 different

You can help ensure the indexing of your Galician town's records.
Please consider a contribution to the AGAD project. Information
on contributing is available at

The AGAD record indices contained in the JRI-Poland database
would not be accessible to researchers without our host,
JewishGen. In addition to your contribution to the JRI-Poland
AGAD Project that supports indexing of the records, we hope you
will also give to JewishGen to help defray the cost of
maintaining these records. An easily accessible contribution form

Re: 3 names in one family #galicia

Margaret Thornhill <clarinetstudio@...>
 

Dear Jacqueline Pollack,

The situation you are describing is quite common for Galicia. In many
communities Jewish religious marriages were not recognized as legal
marriages by the civil authorities so the children are listed in the civil
registers as illegitimate, under the mother's maiden name(especially after
1877), Later, the legality of the Mother's parents' marriage also was
questioned, thus the Mother's maiden name is changed to her mother's maiden
name in the records. We have similar problems with three names for my
husband's family in Kolomyya.

So, >from your information I infer: Miriam's parents were Pollack and
Treitler. Her father is probably Treitler if that name appears first ( but
maybe not, since these births are after 1900.) She and your grandfather,
Ascher, had a religious wedding. The authorities made trouble over the
names when they tried to register their children. By the time they gave
birth to Herschl, the situation had changed.Maybe they got a civil marriage
before the birth of Herschl (some people did this in order to travel) or
maybe Herschl took his father's name legally as
an adult.. The marriage certificates of Miriam's sons in Beligium must have
based their mother's name on their birth certificates.

The registers detailed in JRI do not list everyone who was born or died, so
unfortunately it is not too surprising if you cannot find your grandmother
listed under any of her names.

Russian speaker in Ashkelon #general

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

There is a Russian-speaking Pikgolz in Ashkelon whom I'd like to interview
briefly, but I don't speak the language. I spoke with the city department
which does community work in the immigrant community, but that won't help
me either. I had a neighbor make an initial contact, but the neighbor
doesn't know anything about genealogy, so even with my direction, he
didn't ask the right questions.

Is there a Russian speaker in Israel in this forum who can give me a hand?
