JFRA Israel - Ra'anana Branch - 20 November #general

Schelly Dardashti <dardasht@...>
 

JFRA Israel reminds all members and others interested in family history
research to the next meeting of the JFRA Ra'anana branch.

7 pm, Wednesday, 20 November 2002
All lectures in Ra'anana are in English
Location: Beit Fisher, 5 Klausner St. Ra'anana.


Topic: "Searching in Israel"
Speaker: Batya Unterschatz, former director of the Search Bureau for
Missing Relatives

Batya will speak on how one can search for family within Israel,
available resources and much more. She will also speak about her years
at the Search Bureau, which reunited so many families post-war.
Please join us for this very interesting program.

NOTE: Researchers in Israel or elsewhere may have no known relatives in
Israel. However, JFRA reminds researchers that Eastern European, Sefardi
and Mizrachi families had individuals or branches arriving here since
the 18th century (and earlier) right through more recent times,
including the large Russian immigration. The possibilities are
tantalizing.

JFRA members, NIS 5 (facility fee); others, NIS 15. It is time to renew
memberships, please bring checks made out to JFRA. NIS 100, single; NIS
160, couple.

For more information, please contact JFRA Ra'anana chair Ingrid

Re: SA Jews and Music #southafrica

You probably know about Harry Rabinowitz, Solly Aranowsky and Betty Pack but
you may not know that my late brother Sam Axelrod won the Pretoria
Eistedfodd for violinists three years running and kept the cup which is with
his daughter in Austin, Texas, USA. I have Aronowsky's book "Performing
times of Orchestral Works" which earned him doctorate. Is this of any
interest ?

Seeking researchers of UHLFELDER, REIS, SCHWED #germany

Elizabeth Levy <ealevygen@...>
 

Dear Friends,
I started doing my family research around 1991 and was given a number of
papers by someone who started the research before me. These papers were put away for about ten years and I just decided to take a look at them
again.

To my surprise, I discovered many details that I had overlooked and thus
had not included in my "tree". This is a reminder or suggestion to all,
it helps to reread old letters, notes and papers again. You never know
what you will find the second time around!

Among these papers are a few pages >from the copy of a family trees of the
SCHWED (Bad Kissingen), REIS and UHLFELDER (>from Altenschoenbach) families.
I have no idea whatsoever who put these trees together or when they were
compiled. If anyone knows of researchers of these families, I'd appreciate
helping me make that connection. I am interested to know the sources of
their data (there is conflicting information) and likewise, I can offer
many additions and corrections of my own. My KISSINGER family connects to
all of these families. Thanks, as always,

Elizabeth Levy Mevessaret Zion, Israel
KISSINGER -Unterfranken, WALLACH - Hessen, KATZ - Hessen (Flieden)

Many Families In One House-Census #general

roberta rosen
 

To add to the discussion on many families in one
house:
I have childhood memories of visiting my mother's
great-aunt and and her family in the old Jewish
neighborhood of Rochester, NY. This would have
been in the 30's and early 40's. If you looked
the house >from the street it looked like a large
single family home. However, the front entrance
led to an upper and a lower large apartment. The
side entrance to the house led to two upper and
two lower apartments. (I can still smell the
Friday night mixed odors of gefilte fish and
chicken soup in that hallway!) In the back of the
house there were three more apartments. There
were 9 families in this house, and they all had
the same address! My great aunt and her married
children occupied the four side door apartments.
In the census each family is listed separately,
however the address is obviously the same.

A Photo Exhibition of Lithuanian Jewish Synagogues taken by Balys Buracas #general

Judith27
 

Dear JewishGendom ~

The LitvakSIG Online Journal is pleased to announce "A
Photo Exhibition of Lithuanian Jewish Synagogues >from the
Photo Archives of the late Ethnographer Balys Buracas."

The noted Lithuanian Photo Journalist and Ethnographer,
Balys Buracas (1897-1972), received a Gold Medal at the
1937 International Exposition of Art and Technology in Paris.
His work was also exhibited at the 1939 World Exposition in
New York, and his photos of Lithuanian sacral arts and
cultural traditions appeared in L'Encyclopedie Larousse and
the Illustrated London News.

The photos in this photographic montage of Lithuanian Jewish
Synagogues and their interiors come >from Balys Buracas'
unique and very singular 36,000 photograph and document
archive collection and appear here thanks to the generous
cooperation of his nephew, Professor Antanas Buracas.

To view these historic photographs please go to
http://www.jewishgen.org/Litvak/BalysBuracas.htm

The LitvakSIG Online Journal strives to provide you with a
wide range of articles. Some articles, such as "On The Front
Line in Lithuania, 1915: Stories of Jewish Eyewitnesses," give
you background on Lithuanian Jewish History. Other articles,
such as "Litvaks and Their Calendars: Or How to Navigate
Between the Torah Portion and the Hebrew, Gregorian, and Julian
Calendars," help you with research techniques. Some pieces,
such as "Zeimelis (Lithuania) Jewish Cemetery" display
photographs of Jewish memorial matzevot in Lithuanian shtels
while others such as "Unmarked Lives" mount an exhibition of
textile artistry inspired by doing Litvak genealogical research.
The LitvakSIG Online Journal also has a place for creative
writing, including memoirs, fiction, as well as a full poetry
page.

To read, view, and enjoy the many articles available to you on
the web via the LitvakSIG Online Journal, please consult the
