Re: Galacia and Dolgicion #poland

Mark Halpern
 

Hi Andrew:

My guess is the town of Dlugoszyn at coordinates 5015, 1915 about 31
miles WNW of Krakow. This town was in Galicia before WWI going back to
the early 19th Century. Galicia was a province of the Austrian Empire.
Jewish vital records for Dlugoszyn were registered in nearby Chrzanow.
See http://www.jri-poland.org/town/chrzanow.htm for information about
those records and the volunteers who coordinate the indexing of those
records.

Rabbi Moshe Yehuda Leib, Sasover Rebbe (1745 - 1807) #rabbinic

Aaron Slotnik
 

Hello,

I'm seeking information on the first Sasover Rebbe, Rabbi Moshe Yehuda
Leib whose surname may have also been SASOVER (Sassower, etc) and whose
son Rabbi Yekutiel Shmuel Shmelke had the surname ERBLICH. This is
fairly lengthy and complicated, but I have a few initial questions:
- Is there an entry for him in Meorei Galicia by Rabbi Meir Wunder?
There are no entries under the ERBLICH surname, the one entry under
SASOVER is not for this family; I checked EHRLICH just in case and there
are no entries for this family there either.
- Did he have any other sons?

In the course of researching the ROSEN Galician rabbinic family, I noted
the patriarch listed in the family tree in Meorei Galicia (Vol. 4, 752)
is R' Moshe Yehuda Leib 'Chosid' of Buchach. I'm fairly certain this is
referring to the Sasover Rebbe. Can anyone confirm this?

In addition to the name being the same and the dates fitting, I recently
learned in the course of researching R' Ephraim Rosen of Jagielnica that
R' Shmelke Erblich was also buried in Jagielnica. I found R' Shmelke's
wife's 1881 death record in Jagielnica indexed on JRI-Poland
(http://agadd.home.net.pl/metrykalia/300/sygn.%20306/pages/PL_1_300_306_0012.htm). R' Ephraim was born about 1778 (based on his 1853 death record noting his age as 75 years) and his father was R' Menachem Mendel. R' Shmelke was born in 1800. My conclusion is that R' Moshe Yehuda Leib was married twice, with R' Menachem Mendel being >from the first marriage and R' Shmelke >from the second. I'm not sure if this has already been established, but I couldn't find any reference to it. Can anyone confirm this?

Finally, a few more questions:
- Does anyone know about the Sasover Rebbe's ancestry? I've seen that
he was born in Brody to a "traditional" rabbinic family and that either
his mother or father was an ITTINGA (Etinge, Ettinger, etc); his profile
on Geni says it was his father and a tree on MyHeritage says it was his
mother. Which one is correct and which Ittinga is his ancestor?
- Does anyone know if he was a Levite? If yes, that should help answer
the previous question.
- Does anyone know more about his wife(s)? Assuming it is him, the Rosen
family tree in Meorei Galicia notes his wife as a daughter of "R' Ephraim
of Buchach". Who is this R' Ephraim?
- Does anyone know where he died and what the source of his yahrzeit is?

Apologies for the length of this post and number of questions. I
understand there is a biography about the Sasover Rebbe by Eliyahu Kitov,
but I haven't been able to consult it yet so I don't know if it addresses
these questions. I greatly appreciate any and all input including
references to additional sources.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

Update to KehilaLinks site for Nowy Targ, Malopolska, Poland #general

Madeleine Isenberg
 

This is to advise you that I have updated the KehilaLinks site for
Nowy Targ, Malopolska, Poland
(https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/nowy_targ/).

While Nowy Targ is in Galicia, Poland, many of these families also
migrated slightly southward across the Tatra Mountains into Slovakia
and Czech Republic, as well as those who eventually emigrated to the
USA. So names in one of those areas may be connected or descended
from people who once lived in Nowy Targ.
I am always looking for more information copies of photos or documents
that tell us more about who once lived in that part of the world, so I
welcome people to contact me.

Re: Meaning of 'servant' in Hungarian records #general

I'm sure that the record which gives the term ' synagogue servant' for
an occupation is referring to the traditional role of 'Shammas' in the
synagogue .

For Marcus WOLF, the 1838 Census says, "extreme pauper, servitus vitam
sustentat," translated by Google as "extremely poor, serving sustains
life."
Google translate is *not* a good translator of Latin.

I would translate that as:

"Being quite poor, he earned his livelihood as a servant."

In the former Austro-Hungarian Empire [even now] the term "servus" ["slave"]
was used as an informal greeting, probably stemming >from a class or
employent difference, so "servitus" ["slavery"] would not have had the
feeling of the original Latin.
