Re: Czaple, near Lviv? #general

Yes, there was a place called Czaple near Lemberg (Lviv) during Austrian
rule. The town today is called Chapli and located at coordinates 4931
2302, about 75 KM SW of Lviv.

During the Austrian period and up through WWII, vital events for Czaple
were registered in the nearby town of Sambor. Sambor is one of the 86
Administrative towns in east Galicia whose vital records are part of the
Jewish Records Indexing - Poland AGAD Archives project. Sambor records
have already been indexed and can be searched online at
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/jriplweb.htm. The Sambor records
indexed are:

Births: 1862-1883, 1885-1892, 1895-1899
Marriages: 1877-1897
Deaths: 1868-1883, 1887-1898

Dear Genners,
Is there any place called *Czaple* near Lviv?
I was told by two different sources, in relation to a centain
person I'm researching:

- Was born in a place called Czaple, in the Galitzia area, Poland.
- Was born in a town close to Lviv, Ukraine.
The closest Czaple I found is not even close to Ukraine.
Can someone shed some light on this puzzle?

Thanks,

Dear Mr. Solomon,
I confirm the receipt of your message. For the mentioned places are
available the following resources:
- for the period before 1895 there are rabinical registers of births,
deaths and marriages preserved in the State Archives >from Satu Mare.
They
begin around 1850 and are preserved better for Satu Mare, and with large
gaps for the villages because in the Holocaust period many of them were
destroyed.
- beginning with 1895 there are state registers which include the
inhabitants of all religious denomination. These registers of births,
deaths and marriages are preserved in the Registry Offices of the
respective towns. If you would like to research in the State Archives
you need the written approval of the General Direction of the National
Archives >from Bucharest. For the Registry Offices of the towns
it is possible to obtain so-called extracts if you visit the
respective places [i.e. in person - MOD]. There are preserved
too Jewish cemeteries especially in Satu Mare.

Hoping that these informations will be helpful, I remain with the best
wishes

Mordecai HENDELS in Jewish Encyclopedia #rabbinic

Gilbert Hendlisz <gilbert.hendlisz@...>
 

Dear Rav Siggers,

Thanks to Shirley. This encyclopedia is a gold mine. By the way,
looking for my HENDLISZ/HENDELS ancestors I found an entry about a
Mordecai (Gumpel) Ben Eleazar HENDELS who wrote or printed a book in
Amsterdam in 1717/1718 (Segullot u Refuot - appendix to Mesammche
Leb). It is not clear if he was a printer or a writer. Has anyone
heard about him ? Thanks for any information.

A bride's status on a ketubah #rabbinic

MBernet@...
 

I want to prepare a simple guide that will help people with very
limited knowledge of Hebrew, to obtain the necessary facts >from a
ketubah: date, names of parties, location, and status of the
parties.

Are the following the correct terms for a bride's status

maiden: betulta (bet-tav-vav-lamed-tav-aleph)
widow: almanata (alef-lamed-mem-nun-tav-aleph)
divorcee: metarchata (mem-tav-resh-chav-tav-alef)?

Is the groom always simply known as chatan (chet-tav-nun),
irrespective of his pre-marital status?

Please let me know the correct spellings, and any terms I may have
left out.

To what extent is the rule of 100 + 100 zuzin bride price for a
maiden, 50 + 50 for a widow or divorcee, universal across
communities?

Many thanks for all informed information.

Biblical Names #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

When searching biblical names (Old and New Testament) try this site:
http://bible.crosswalk.com/
A search will return several references for the same name as found in
various sources. Caveat: the search engine will only produce results
with EXACT spellings. Thus Myriam would result in zero finds while
Miriam would return five. Also one can't use the Hebrew and Latin
variants, like Yitzhak for Isaac or Petrus for St. Peter.
