Judaica #general

Merv & Naomi Barnett
 

Hello Listers

I'm trying in a round about way to find information regarding a
relative. I understand he was a major collector of Judaica and his
collection was given to a museum in Jerusalem quite some years ago. His
name was Eshel Golnitzsky. I'd like to communicate with someone who is
familiar with Judaica and might know something about Eshel.

Many thanks.

Dear all.

David Framowitz sent me this answer:
First cousin - Ben (or Bat) Dod
First cousin once removed - Ben Ben Dod (et al)
Second cousin - Ben Dodan Ha'Em (or Ha'Av)
or - shlishi b'shlishi (which I didn't quite get but I asked him
to clarify).
I just received a note >from a fellow genner, saying that in the orthodox
society they use instead of the term Ben-Dod or Dodan (cousin): Sheni
Be'Sheni (second in second).
Shlishi Be'Shlishi (third in third) means second cousin.
It simply counts the generations in between.

Best regards,

Romanian Holocaust experiences #romania

Tom.Grunfeld@...
 

Apropos Merle Kastner's recent posting about a new book >from a Romanian
Holocaust survivor, let me also alert people to a self-published book
by Sophie Weisz Miklos called Paper Gauze
Ballerina about her adventures growing up in Ermihalyfalva (Valei Lui
Mihai) in Translyvania and surviving Auschwitz.

On another subject related to Ermihalyfalva a group of us who were born in
the town, both before and after the war, (I was born after) have been
raising money to refurbish the last remaining synagogue there and make it
available to the town for use as a community and cultural center. It cannot
be used as a synagogue any more because there are only a handful of Jews
still living in the town and I think it is a safe bet to assume no
additional Jews will be joining them. However, if the synagogue is razed
there will be no monument, nor memory, of the Jewish community so we have
decided to fix it up and turn it into a memorial to the once thriving
Jewish community. I believe strongly that if all evidence of Jewish life is
eliminated >from these towns across Eastern and Central Europe than the
Nazis will have won a small victory in his quest to wipe out that memory.

For those interested we have a website:
http://www.geocities.com/valeasynagogue

We have set up a non-profit foundation in Nagyvarad (Oradea) and have
raised about 3/4 of the money needed so if anyone would like to contribute
we would be extremely grateful.

Re: Follow up: re Sasov and QUELLER for Crim #ukraine

mccrim1 <mccrim1@...>
 

Thanks Ms. Fatouros for your helpful replies. Yes I know of the QUELLER's
on the Yzkor lists, but was particularly interested in reference to Sassov
which I had not found.

I did some additional looking today and came up with a reference to a Yzkor
book for Sassov, a copy of which is in San Francisco, but alas is in
Yiddish. There is also a copy in Israel. The family story suggests that
"most" of the Quellers emigrated, but some were murdered in the Holocast. I
have no names (yet) so the Lviv Quellers may be our family.

I also found the following list for the town Sasow suggesting it is in the
Zloczw district of the Tarnopol Province. How does this relate to the Lviv
Oblast? My calculations (poor at best) puts it more than 10 miles from
Lviv.

Re: Easy way of understanding cousinship? #general

sallybru <sallybru@...>
 

"What happens when you have a family in which a child was born to parents
late in life and the child is actually a generation younger than the
children of their aunts and uncles (first cousins?)?"

It makes no difference if the uncle/aunt is younger than the nephew/neice.
First cousins are first cousins, etc. What is important for this is
generations.

If so where might one find it?

1828 Hungarian Property Tax Census database #general

Eric M. Bloch
 

To all Jewishgenners with Hungarian roots,

Great news to start the new year - the 1828 Hungarian Property Tax
Census online database has just been updated and now includes 11,000
entries!

We still need additional volunteers willing to transcribe Jewish names
from microfilms of
the Census at their local LDS library. We have a small core group
working diligently at the transcriptions, but it is a slow process. The
more help we have, the faster it will go. We have completed 95 films,
and have 226 waiting to be transcribed. If you'd like to help,
please let me know.

Happy searching!

BERLOWITZ - meaning of the name #general

A. E. Jordan
 

At long last I found something that confirmed the BERLOW family
on my tree was named BERLOWITZ in Courland
(Russia) and shortened the name more than decade
after they arrived in the United States.

If "vitz" or "witz" means son of, is Berlow
a name to be a son of? Any other thoughts on the name?

Thanks.
