Dear Kitty,

Jewish activities are not discouraged in Poland. In
contrary, there is a fertile ground for such
activities
now. Members of non-Jewish population often join the
very small Jewish comunity in celebration of Jewish
culture and heritage. The last festival of Jewish
culture in Krakow which ended with an open-air 7-hour
long concert attracted 10 thousand mostly young Polish
spectators. A museum of the history of Polish Jews
will be built in Warsaw. Faculties of Jewish Studies
in Warsaw and Krakow are increasingly popular. There
have been even individual cases of Jewish immigrants
to Poland recently. The number of communities,
cultural, religious, educational and research
facilities, publications and other initiatives is too
large to encapsulate them all in this message.

Of course, anti-Semitism still finds its followers in
certain sections of Polish society as anywhere else
in Europe and the world, but I would rather suggest to
direct your attention to these positive trends as they
are to the great benefit of Jewish genealogists.

Website of The Jewish Community of Poland
http://www.jewish.org.pl/ will help you to locate some
of Jewish organizations in Poland.

Judaica Foundation can be found at
http://www.judaica.pl/

And archives of Jagiellonian University do keep
student files, so there is a chance you'll find
information about your ancestor. For contact see:

from your posting I sense that you have not been to
Poland for long. I'd like to encourage you (and
others who read this message)to visit this country, go
to the Jewish facilities, meet local Poles interested
in Jewish heritage, make friends, benefit >from the new
situation.

ICHENHAUSER from Ichenhausen (adopting town names as family names) #germany

Ernest Kallmann <ernest.kallmann@...>
 

Following my posting on Gersig July 22 :

"While transcribing the 1813 Judenmatrikel for Ichenhausen, Bavaria (in
fact the list of family heads with their former names and with their
newly adopted given names and permanent family names) we stumbled over #
174 Joseph b. Simon adopting the name of Joseph ICHENHAUSER. For both of
us it is the first occurrence of a Jew adopting as his family name one
deriving directly >from the place where he lives",

Charles HEXTER and I received many responses, for which we wish to thank
all correspondents. >from them it appears that :

- the practice of adopting the name of the place of residence when
required to take permanent family names is quite current in Eastern
Europe,
- before this obligation (which came in force usually after 1800), the
surnames built >from town names (e.g. WORMSER, WURMSER) generally were
used to distinguish namesakes by adding the town of origin of the first
ancestor having settled in a place. This suggests that "there are no
OPPENHEIMER living in Oppenheim".
- nevertheless, in some cases, during the name adoption process some
Jews took the name of their place of residence. This shows that there
nevertheless "may be some OPPENHEIMER living in Oppenheim". What may be
the reason for such a choice ? One correspondent suggests lack of
imagination.

In short : I raised a false problem. Thanks again. I assume the
Moderator will now cut the thread.

Landsmanshaften collection -- how do you find the material? #general

Gloria Bailey <auletta1@...>
 

OK. I'm confused.

Upon reading:
Genners:
Please note the landsmanshaften collection at the YIVO library on West
16th St NYC which is catalogued at www.jgsny.org.
I went to the site and looked up my grandfather's landsmanshaften --

Slutzker Branch 500.

It is listed as being in the collection, and I presume the questionnaire
was completed by the WPA Yiddish Writer's Guild.

Now, how do I find the answers to the questionnaire? I am very interested
because my grandfather, Joseph Osherowitz, was both a founding member and a
member of the 50 year Golden Jubilee organization committee. In addition,
other family members were also members of this branch. (I will note that
my grandmother was a member even though she was >from Pagost.) Also my
grandfather was actually born in Romanovo, but did live for a period in
Slutzk. Mostly, I think this was the nearest big city so they considered
that the home town, when asked where they were from.

Do I have to go to Yivo to read these records? (I am in Seattle). Is
there a way to read them online?

Thanks.

1901 Census question and information #unitedkingdom

Daniel S. Katz
 

Hi,

I'm having quite a problem locating a family in the 1901 census, and
was looking for ideas. The two members of the family I am certain
were in England were:
Sarah Himmelspring, age 56 and her son Israel, age 24, both born in
Rovno. Their father, Jacob/Yankel, is listed inone of the 1895 death
indices (thought with the last name Himelspring with a bar over the
m).

They are not under Himmelspring, Himelspring, Himmel(anything),
Himel(anything), H(any vowel)(anything)spring, or
Hi(anything)m(anything)l(anything). I also looked for any male
Israel of age 24 +/- 5 born in Russia or Poland, and any female Sarah
of age 56 +/- 10 born in Russia or Poland without success.

Any ideas?


Also, I purchased three census pages which were not of use to me, and

Annual New Year Donor Appeal! #france

Rosanne D. Leeson <leeson1@...>
 

Dear Friends:

As we prepare to celebrate the New Year please take a moment to consider
that JewishGen provides us with the vital source for our ongoing
genealogical research. JewishGen is still one of the only free
genealogical sites free to us, but not free to JewishGen, which must
bear the monthly expense of providing all the resources we use daily
without a second thought. These are costs that must be met to overcome
the current shortfall.

To continue as a public service institution, JewishGen has launched the
first Annual New Year Donor Appeal. The goal is to raise $300,000 to
carry us through to the end of 2002 and to acquire the necessary
hardware and software applications for improved databases scheduled to
begin going online by October. There are two million records >from
Yad Vashem and other sources waiting to be made available to us!

The financial support of each and every one of us is needed if JewishGen
is to continue as the only free site for Jewish genealogical research.
Give what you can afford, be it $25, the suggested annual minimum,
or $100 (or more) which will enroll you in the JGFFAlert. This is a
system that informs you via immediate e-mail if another researcher
enters data into the JGFF that has the potential of linking to your
family names.

Please go now to:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/contribute.ihtml.

With your permission, your name will be listed on a special 2002 Annual
New Year Donor Appeal recognition site. We are asking that all our
users make a donation to the very best of their financial ability.
Consider scheduling a monthly deduction >from your credit card if this
works best for you.

On behalf of JewishGen and our FrenchSIG our very best wishes for a
healthy, happy and peaceful New Year.

Re: Talsi Jewish cemetery #courland #latvia

David Crook <CROOKFAMILY@...>
 

I would be most interested in seeing the tombstones, as my father-in-law's
parents came >from Talsi. I am able to read and translate Hebrew, Yiddish and
German, so perhaps I can help in translations.

Subject: [courland] Talsi Jewish cemetery


Would someone on this listserv be interested in the information on the
gravestones of the Talsi, Latvia Jewish cemetery? A professor from
Lancaster
University in Great Britain and I have had recent correspondence. He has
photographs of all the legible gravestones. I am not very computer
literate
nor am I able to translate >from Hebrew, Latvian,Yiddish and German which
are
on the stones but I thought someone on the Latvian list serv would be
willing to look at the photos, translate and know how to post the
information to the JewishGen site. I don't think there are many stones
left
so it is a relatively small project.

Please contact me if interested or perhaps let me know who else would like
this information.

Sincerely,
Louise Hayden
