Books: Kosice Jewish Community and Slovak Gazetteer #hungary

Gabriela Svatos
 

Recently I have located an importer/exporter who will be able to mail me
multiple copies of the following books >from Slovakia. If anyone is
interested in purchasing these hard to find genealogical titles, please
e-mail me off-list for details:

Majtan, Milan. Nazvy Obci Slovenskej Republiky. Bratislava: Slovenska
Akademie Vied, 1998. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Soft Cover. New This is a
gazetteer of Slovak towns and villages with German, Hungarian and Slovak
translations of the locality names.

The above book is a wonderful source of detailed information. It even lists
the years the locality names changed, nearest large town, county
names.***The mormons have an edition of this one on microfilm.

Kolisovo, Stefan/ Amrichova, Jana/ Chmelarova, Alzbeta/ Kolivoskova, Elena /
Mitrova, Olga. Slovnik Zidovskych Osobnosti Kosic a Okolia. Kosice,
Slovakia: 2001. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Hard Cover. New This is a Who's
Who of the Jewish community of Kosice (and surrounding localities). The text
is in Slovak.

This is the latest of several books written about the notable jews of
Kosice. Usually birth names/dates/places are noted. Sometimes parents
names, occupations, as well as bios about a paragraph in length. For those
who were at the conference, this is the same book I brought for lookups.

Regards,
Gabi

Re: Descendants of Meir of Rothenburg #germany

Werner L. Frank <wlfrank@...>
 

Let me enter the discussion on the descendants of the Mahara"m,
Rabbi Meir ben Baruch of Rothenburg o/T. I claim descend through
my ancestor, Rabbi Jakob WEIL of Weil-der-Stadt (1385-1456).

1. There is dispute regarding the connection of this Rabbi Jakob
(the Mahari"v) to the Mahara"m. Most of the (poor) evidence points
to the fact that probably his wife (>from Nuernberg) was the actual
descendant. There are probably 3 or 4 missing generations >from this
time frame to the time of Rabbi Meir.

2. Many years later, the prominent descendant of Rabbi Jakob, Rabbi
Nathanel WEIL ( 1687-1769) and author of Korban Nathanel, carries on
his tombstone the very specific notation that he was a descendant of
Rabbi Meir (hence making it possible that it may have been through
the wife of his esteemed ancestor, Rabbi Jakob).

3. The son of Rabbi Jakob WEIL was Rabbi Meir (Mahara"m) WEIL,
rabbi in Ulm and Munich, Rabbi of all Bavaria. I estimate his birth
as 1420 and he is possibly the first Maram, Marum, Maharam, known to
us (also mentioned by Brilling). This data comes directly >from the
Hakdamah of the Korban Nathanel.

4. The tradition of name selection of Meir in the WEIL family
begins with the children of Rabbi Jakob and his wife. The direct
antecedents of Rabbi Jakob did not use this name.

For further information regarding this and related topics, see my
posted article on the WEILs on the RavSIG website:

Clarification of Shtetlach and Their Uezds #lithuania

EDENSARA@...
 

Dear Fellow Litvaks,

I am seeking assistance in understanding the administrative aspect of
Lithuanian record keeping in the 19th and early part of the 20th centuries.

My ggf, Wolf BARON and his wife Sara KAPLAN BARON said they came >from
Vilnius. I have determined that Wolf probably came >from Aukstadvaris, wsw of Vilnius, and in Trakai uezd. I have his naturalization papers >from 1893, which mention only Vilnius.

His younger brother, Rachmil immigrated in 1919 and his papers indicate
Aukstadvaris, as do Rachmil's 4 sons, who immigrated between 1908 and 1924.

Records that I recently received >from Lithuania are confusing me for several reasons.

The marriage record of Asna BARON, daughter of Rachmil Baron says she is an Aukstadvaris citizen >from Trabsk,Oshmianski Uezd. Her husband, Berko PITUM, son of Leib PITUM is said to be a Stoklishki citizen. They were married in Aukstadvaris in March 1913, and the record was found in LVIA (Lithuanian Historic Archives in Vilnius) and was part of the Vilnius Jewish Rabbinate records, Fond 728.

The death record of Leizer BARON, son of Hirsch (this may be my gggf and
ggggf) says he was a Trobski citizen >from Oshmiana Uezd who died in Feb 1894 in Aukstadvaris. This record also came >from the Vilnius Rabbinate records.

The marriage record of Rivka BARON, daughter of Leiser, says she is an
Oshmiana citizen who was married in Vilnius in 1896 to Oshmiana uezd
Devenishki citizen Egidya LEVIN, son of Chaim.

I have concentrated my efforts on Vilnius city, Vilnius Guberniya,
Aukstadvaris and Trakai Uezd for the last 10 years. Have I been spinning my wheels?

The Shtetls of Lithuania feature indicates Aukstadvaris to be in Trakai Uezd, Vilnius Gubernia and Oshmiany to be in Oshmiany Uezd, Minsk Gubernia. It also indicates that Trob / Traby is in Oshmiany Uezd, Vilnius Gubernia. My researcher insists my ancestors came >from Belarus before they lived in Lithuania. I'm not convinced because I can't be certain that the records she acquired are actually my family.

Some clarification is appreciated as I have read the LitvakSig Website and
cannot get a handle on this.

Passenger travel documents #germany

Michael Marx <mhmarx@...>
 

Did immigrants travelling >from Europe (i.e., Hamburg) to Ellis Island have
any travel documents or was there only the ship manifest?

A relative tells me they have a German "passport" issued in 1909 for their
grandmother and mother who sailed together >from Germany. Interestingly,
there are entries in French for "madame et jeune fille."

I wonder why the French? I was not aware that there were such travel
documents. Does this suggest a different class of passage and/or an
arrival at other than Ellis Island? I can not find a record of their
arrival in the Ellis Island records.

MODERATOR NOTE: Dates should be included in inquiries like this one.
