Re: Russian (was Polish) translation in exchange for JEWISHGENerosity #general

MsRachelR <msrachelr@...>
 

I received what I believe to be a copy of the record of my g-grandparents
marriage in Warsaw in 1893. As those who have travelled this path before
are aware, this is the long form, and it's all handwritten. I tried to see
if I could use Shea's Translation Guide as a help - but I couldn't even
figure out one word. The handwriting is difficult to decipher.

I am only able to provide a copy via snailmail to anyone who might
volunteer to translate this for me. I would be eternally grateful, and
would like to contribute to * JewishGen-erosity * in exchange for your
efforts.
I've been told that given the location and time period of this marriage
record, that it is written in Russian, not Polish.

So now I am simply changing the flavor of my request which is now for a
Russian translation, in exchange for JEWISHGENerosity.

Sena near #hungary

Louis Schonfeld <Lmagyar@...>
 

The village of Sena/Abaujszina (Slovak/Hungarian)in the vicinity of Kosice
was a difficult location to pinpoint for a number of us. Most correspondants
from that village who lived there during the Hungarian era naturally
referred to the town using the Hungarian name; if the correspondant's
handwriting was difficult to decipher then one might search in maps focusing
in on the contemporary Hungarian county of Abauj-Torna. The town would have
been shown in that county, but only on detailed maps in the era prior to the
Treaty of Trianon (ratified in 1920). After that time, and as part of
Czechoslovakia, (after 1990 Slovkia) the "Abauj" was dropped and the town
name became Sena.

The task of locating Abaujszina remained on my "to-do-list" for several
years (even though I don't have ancestors >from that village, other H-siggers
do, so it became important for me as well). Several weeks ago I received a
call >from a descendant of that town's only Rabbi. He had heard of me via my
network of contacts throughout the Chassidic communities of Williamsburgh,
Boro Park, Bene Brak etc. He is not connected to the WWWeb (very few
Chareidi Jews are). His name is Calman Lieberman and he has asked me to post
his name, telephone number (718-384-4639) and fax number (718-599-4997) for
anyone interested about this village and its former Jewish inhabitants. He
has made several trips there for the purposes of restoring the Jewish
cemetery and repairing the Matzevot (tombstones). He has also provided a list of the remaining Matzevot in the Jewish cemetery of Sena, and
the information he has gleaned >from each one which I happy to present here.

All years refer to the year of death. The Hebrew word "ben" means son of.
Please note some listings have the family name others just the Hebrew first
names. The order of the list sent to me seems to indicate that men and women
were buried in
separate rows/sections.

Re: Hebrew/Yiddish for "Lawrence" #general

Roberta Sheps <roberta_l_sheps@...>
 

A couple of months ago I asked for (and got) suggestions for possible
original Hebrew or Yiddish names for my maternal great-grandfather, who
was apparently known as "Lawrence" in English. Suggestions were Leib,
Lazar, Eliazer and Aryeh Leib. I have now located a possible match in
the Winnipeg Census for 1901, where a person called " Levi" is given as
the head of a household whose other members include someone with my
grandfather's first name and other children whose names come pretty
close to those of his siblings, and other facts appear to corroborate as
well.

I now have this question: given that my great-grandfather's last name
was "Cohen", how likely is it that his first name would have been
"Levi"? It seems pretty contradictory to me. Is there any customary or
Halakhic reason why a Cohen would not have been called "Levi"?

Puzzled,

Kreis Deutsch Krone. My KNOPF family originated there. Any directive
will be greatly appreciated. >>

In reply to the above I can state that, having researched Jewish
Schneidemuehl for the past 20 years I can safely say that so far
there are no indications that **any** Jewish records for Schneidemühl
prior to 1874 are extant.

In fact the only records that **are** avaible are the town's Civil
records, 1874-1945, that were saved in 1945 and are currently located
in Berlin. However, the LDS has 165 microfilms, representing the entire
volume of these salvaged records.

GenAmi website updated #general

Micheline GUTMANN <MichelineGUTMANN@...>
 

On our website, we have a lot of new files added, and new activities :
a forum will be opened on January 1st for members, in order for them
to exchange directly genealogical information. All the languages will be
authorized. Of course questions in French and English have more chance
to get answers.

We don't wish to be a concurent to Jewishgen, so even if we have
members looking everywhere, we'll continue to sent them to Jewishgen
and its different SIG ; the places we know the best stay in France,
Belgium, Luxembourg . We have an important library which is just near
our computer, it's why we can answer very quickly to many questions.

For all other chapters look at http://asso.genami.free.fr

Deadline announced for claims in the Czech Republic #general

David Lewin <davidlewin@...>
 

This is information for anyone with roots in what is now the Czech Republic.

Important news has reached me this morning.

Anyone contemplating claims for property in the Czech republic
must be made aware that a deadline has now been set for such claims

25th May 2001

After that no claims will be entertained by the Czech Authorities.

A number of people have found out that even though they had been told in
the past that they have no chance, persistence has helped.

There are technical/legal distinctions made between "compensation"
and "inheritance" claims.

Whichever group it may be, the May 25 2001 will be the cut off point.
