Manchester research #unitedkingdom

Judy Freedman <ja.freedman@...>
 

After great frustration looking for my relatives, someone I communicated
with >from the Family Finder suggested the Telegraph, a newspaper for the
Jewish community in Manchester and other parts of the UK. They have a
feature called Roots which allows you to ask your genealogy questions.
It brought instant success for the man who suggested it, and it did the
same for me.

http://www.jewishtelegraph.co.uk/

My newly discovered Manchester relatives assured me all Jews in
Manchester read it.

Book re Pogroms #ukraine

Flo Elman
 

Dear Members:
Linda Kern was glad to be able to help look up names of towns in which
pogroms took place. She was inundated with requests however, & will have to
limit her searches to those she received before today as that is about all
she can handle for now. As of now, she will have to turn down any new ones.

Thanks for the helping hand Linda.

Aramaic Katubot- Not Yiddish or Hebrew! #latvia

Just wanted to let you know that I have been set straight and I now know the katubot on VM2038 is written in Aramaic, not Yiddish or Hebrew. Of course, it goes without saying, I can't read Aramaic either!


Best regards,

Re: OCHINSKY BEER #galicia

Dear David,

One of the great beer centers of Galicia (if not the greatest) was also a
town of great Jewish depth and vitality. Brezhesko, known as Brigel in
Yiddish, was and still is one of the great beer centers of what is now once
again Poland. Located southeast of Krakow and west of Tarnow near Bochnia,
and Sanz, it was home to the Vialepole Kollel and I believe it was also the
birthplace of the wife of the famous Cantor, Yossele Rosenblatt. At one time
a great variety of beers were produced there. I believe currently it is #2 in
beer productions among the communities of Poland. David, could Tarnopol
possibly be confused with Tarnow in your family lore? It seems like a place
worth investigating.

Anyone interested in creating a beer SIG?

I believe they owned a seltzer factory and

Thank you

Viborg, Denmark--- MOSES, LEVINSOHN #scandinavia

Michelle Riemor Muller <mrmprhs@...>
 

Hello,

It has been a while since I posted, so I thought
I'd ask if anyone has more information on my
search, which focuses on VIBORG, DENMARK.

My ancestor (6x Great Grandfather) , Abraham
Moses (Levinsohn?) born 1755, was a member of the
community (as of 1794) in Viborg, and sold fine
silks and cloths, most likely woven in Viborg in
a workshop that belonged to another member of the
Moses family.

He died in 1808 in Randers.

His daughter, Sidsel Marie Abrahamsdatter, my 5x
great-grandmother, was born out of wedlock in
1793 to him and Anna Madsdatter a spinner in
Viborg (both Anna and Sidsel were born in
Sennels, Thy).

He lived at St. Mogensgade no. 16 in Nørlyng
Herred, Viborg.

Abraham & Anna never married, but appear to have
continued a relationship in some form after their
daughter's birth.

A widow at the time, he also had a daughter,
Minne, born in 1786, with his wife Beile.

Abraham Moses (Levinsohn?) was possibly born in
Slesvig.

I am looking for more information on him, his
family, his origins, & his ancestry. I am also
seeking more information on the Jewish community
in Viborg ca. 1800.

If anyone can help, I'd be most appreciative!
