Translation help thanks #germany

Joyce Hughes <forevertree1@...>
 

Thanks to ALL the wonderful people who answered my plea for help. There
were about 12 or 13 persons responded. It really is great to belong to a
group with so many who are willing to help. Thanks again and it really has
been appreciated.

The letter was translated and much to my sorrow, did not help with the
finding of my husbands ancestry, but it did let me know where they were
not. I must look elsewhere or at different types of records. Sincerely,

Joyce Hughes Daytona Beach, FL USA

TAUB(E) from Rozdol #rabbinic

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

There is no one listed in JGFF as researching TAUB(E) in Rozdol (or
Stryj), so I'll throw out my question here.

Hersch Pikholz (born Rozdol about 1835) lived in Stryj and had
children in the 1870's. (Probably the 1860's too, but we don't have
access to these earlier records as yet.)

His wife was Liebe (or Libe) TAUB. (We have not yet ordered the
records that should have her parents' names, but will do so soon.)

R' Moshe Chaim TAUBE had a Hassidic court in Rozdol until his death
in 1831 and he was followed by his son R' Shelomo TAUBE who served
until 1879. It occurs to me that Liebe may be >from this Hassidic
family.

If anyone has information on the Rozdol TAUB(E) family which may
shed light on the couple in question, I'd be pleased to hear.

Latvian microfilms and records in the LDS FHL #courland #latvia

Joyce Field
 

This is a comment on Martha Lev-Zion's posting on Latvian microfilms
and records in the LDS FHL. I want to mention two relevant facts that
may not be well known.

JewishGen, through its Research Division, has an agreement with the
FHL regarding the creation of databases to be put on the JewishGen
site >from FHL microfilmed data. In many cases, FHL does not have the
rights to this data and it must secure permission >from the
originating source of the data. Upon notification >from me that a SIG
is interested in indexing certain data, it will work with its field
representatives in Europe to get permission. Or, if FHL has the
rights to the data, it will then give written permission to JewishGen
to create a database.

In addition, if there are large amounts of data to be worked on >from
a series of films, the FHL may agree to put these records on a
CD-ROM, which is sent to me to be distributed to the interested SIG.
There is a contractual arrangement between the FHL and JewishGen on
the subsequent indexed data.

Thus, if there is an interest in a specific project, this should be
reported to the Latvian SIG, who would then make a specific request
that I contact FHL for permission to index the data for inclusion on
JewishGen and, in addition, to see if the films can be digitized and
sent to us on CD-ROM. Getting permission up front insures that there
will be no subsequent problems with permission. In addition, if FHL
can produce a CD-ROM, the data will be easier to use and volunteers
can work in the comfort of their own homes in front of their
computers.

I think that someone should look at the material that Martha cited to
see what is suitable for the creation of databases.

Re: rom-sig digest: Meeting at DC conference #romania

As a frequent attender of the IAGS conferences (4 years) I believe we will
get more out of
a meeting on the program than a luncheon.

Another possibility is a"birds of a feather" meeting or round table

LENCZNER, Szczekociny, Poland, Yad Vasem #general

Michael McTeer <desrx@...>
 

Szczekociny Lenczner researchers:

In 1998, I submitted a request to Yad Vasem. In response, I was sent 19
Pages of Testimony of Szczekociny Lenczners. These were some sort of
'xeroxed' copies. At the same time they also provided computerized printouts
of Sosnowiec Liebermans. I had also inquired about the Kalkopf name to which
they could only provide copies of several ITS cards.

Last month, I sent a new inquiry to check if they had since entered the
Lenczner Pages to the database in hopes I could obtain more readable
material. Yesterday, I received an email stating: ''we have found 60 Pages
of Testimony for Lenczner family >from Sczcekociny and 13 Pages of Testimony
for Kalkopf (6 of them >from Zarki)."

So if you have not check with Yad Vasem for a while, you might wish to make
a new inquiry.

Re: Latvian microfilms and records in the LDS FHL #courland #latvia

Carol J. Robinson <caroljr@...>
 

Joyce,

That was a very helpful e-mail and contained information that was new to
me. The two biggest H-SIG projects are currently being done by asking
people to go to LDS FHL and transcribe directly >from microfilm. Would it
be possible to get 1828 and 1848 Hungarian census data >from LDS on
CD-ROM? The coordinators of each project have created spreadsheets of
which transcriptions have been completed and which have not, so we would
know which microfilms to request. Based on my experience with
transcribing Dachau records, I know I would find it easier to transcribe
from CD-ROM, and I suspect others would too.
I hope you write a general e-mail and send it to all the SIGs as a
reminder. This also gives me the chance to ask about records generated
from copies of genealogy studies. There are several people who want to
transcribe or have transcribed data >from pages provided them by
professional genealogists in Eastern Europe. Are there any concerns
about this type of data of which I should be aware?

Regards,

Carol Robinson

Re: ISAACS < > CANSTATT #unitedkingdom

BP Bergman & GI Melville <bergville@...>
 

Vol XXV of the Transactions of the Jewish Historical Society of England
describes Nathan CANSTATT as ""The Poor Man's Doctor" of the Great
Synagogue". There is also a footnote reference in Vol XIII to a DH CANSTATT
who was in Cape Town in 1834. Dr Jacob CANSTATT was medical officer to the
Jewish Board of Guardians in London (Vol XXIX) and >from the dates, may have
been a brother of Nathan.

Beverly Bergman

---------------------
The elder daughter, Hannah married Nathan Jacob CANSTATT, surgeon, son of
Jacob Nathan Canstatt, physician, on 9 Jul 1843 under the auspices of the
Great Synagogue. Nathan was a widower so this is a second marriage.

According to Doreen Berger's 'Jewish Victorian', the Canstatts were well a
regarded family of physicians >from Mannheim in Germany with Nathan being
physician to the Great Synagogue and the Board of Guardians.

Is anyone familiar with the CANSTATT family? There is mention of daughters
in the J.V. but it is not clear whether this is >from first or second
marriage. They appear to be married to [1] Cuby of Gibraltar and [2]
Pariente (perhaps Tangier).

There are no Canstatts in the 1901 Census index.

Dear Fellow Researchers,

This is in response to the recent posting by Stuart TOLEDANO [h-sig 10/10/02].

My grandmother Frida BREUER GOTTLIEB, born July, 1873 in Bihar, Hungary now
Biharea, Romania [Bihar/Bihor County] was also married by Joseph ROEMER at 84
Avenue C, NYC, November 22, 1915 to Max MAKAY, born in Mako, Hungary. I know
that this was her religious ceremony because on the same day, with the same
witnesses and a different marriage certificate number Alderman Clinton Crane
performed a civil ceremony.

Does anyone have any knowledge of what was located at that address and who
Joseph ROEMER was? I tried a Google search but it wasn't helpful.

That same year, August 21, 1915 my mother's cousin Dora KRAUS, born 1896 in
Nagyvarad/Oradea was married to Emil HERTZ by Rev Bernhard KLEIN at 106
Avenue C.
