Avraham SHOR's Wife #rabbinic

Lainey Melnick <lmelnick@...>
 

On the SCHOR Family site that I mentioned in my last post (Re:
Meshullam Feibush HELLER's Wife)

http://www.geocities.com/heartland/trail/8095/legend.html

there is mention of a person >from a line of MEISELS rabbis, ending
with R'Eliyahu of Lvov:

Avraham SHOR (b appx 1590) whose wife was the daughter of
R'Gershon B"R Avraham B"R Eliyahu (aka Eliyahu m'Lvov, aka
Eliyahu Oringal) MYZLISH. He is mentioned with honor in
the records of the small synagogue of Lvov; he died and is
buried in Lvov.

Does anyone have any other information about these rabbis and where
they fit into my MEISELS tree? The only Eliyahu that I currently
have married Yehudit WASSER-TRILLING, and is the father of Mojzesz,
the father of Eliacz Chaim (1821-1912), the grandfather of Rabbi
Eliezer Yitzchak (b 1882), the father of Mina. I also don't have any
additional information on this branch if anyone knows the pedigree
of this branch as well.

Thanks for the help,

Bella HEYMANN / HEIMANN nee LEVY

Both are buried in the Jewish Cemetery in Assens.

Their daughter is Gitte HEIMANN.

I'm looking for any information that could lead me to finding Bella's
(LEVY) parents and birth information or more information about the
Jewish settlement in Fredericia Denmark. I'm also looking for any
information the could help me find Abraham in Altona. Their daughter
Gitte was born in Middelfart, Odense, Denmark so they may have been
married in this area. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Jewish burials in Denmark Abraham Moses was a tradesman in Viborg,
called "Slesviger" (which indicates, that he came >from Slesvig).
He died in Viborg in 1809 but is buried in the the jewish cemetery

about crawled my way out >from under a mountain of emails that poured

for the Yizkor Book Project. It's great to get away but hard to
return to an avalanche of mail. To those of you who wrote me during

description of the Yizkor Book Project as well as the FAQ, database,
libraries, and other matters can be accessed >from

During December 2002 we added 3 books, 2 new entries , and 11 updates.

New books:

-Dusetos, Lithuania
-Suprasl, Poland
-Tomaszow, Poland

New entries:

-Dorosauti, Romania (Pinkas HaKehillot Romania)
-Poddebice, Poland (Pinkas HaKehillot Poland, volume 1)

-Miklulintsy, Ukraine
-Pinsk, Belarus
-Radekhov, Ukraine
-Rokitnoye, Ukraine
-Rozniatow, Ukraine
-Slutsk, Belarus
-Sokoly, Poland
-Staszow, Poland

2002 was a productive year for the Yizkor Book Project. We added 29
new books and 97 entries, and updated 188 books. We had
approximately 270,000 hits in December and over 2.8 million hits to
the web site for the year, a record.

All this would not have been possible without the dedicated volunteer
Yizkor Book Staff, especially Lance Ackerfeld, the generous donors
who contributed translations, the incredibly hard-working and
talented project coordinators, and finally the financial donors whose
contributions allowed us to hire translators.

A Happy and Peaceful New Year to you all. We look forward to another
successful year.

All this would not have been possible without the dedicated volunteer
Yizkor Book Staff, especially Lance Ackerfeld, the generous donors
who contributed translations, the incredibly hard-working and talented
project coordinators, and finally the financial donors whose contributions
allowed us to hire translators.

A Happy and Peaceful New Year to you all. We look forward to another
successful year.
