Re: Kultusbeamter #general

Beba Marantz <beba.marantz@...>
 

It basically means an employee at the Department of education and culture,
but also (Kultus= a sphere involving faith and church) at the department
for public instruction and faith (faith being considered part of culture),
also implying that your cousin may have been working for his own Jewish
religious community (Kultusgemeinschaft).

Best regards.

Beba Marantz

My Cousin was called the "Kultusbeamter" of Speyer in the 1930's.
Does anyone know just what a "Kultusbeamter" and, therefore, a
"Kultusamt" was?

Metz Jewish Families #general

SOL2516171@...
 

Does anyone know where I can purchase Simon Schwarzfuch's "Un obituaire
israelite: le Memorbuch de Metz, vers 1575-1724?"

In addition, I would be interested in sharing information with anyone with
links to the following Metz families: BONN, BRISAC, CAHEN, CHARLEVILLE,
DALSACE, EMMERICH, GOMPERZ, SPIRE LEVY, TRENEL, WALLICH, and ZAY. I have a
lot of information on certain branches of these families and am interested
in connecting with other branches.

Thanks very much.

? re. Warszawa Business Directory 1870 #general

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

The 1870 Warszawa Business Directory shows many MENDELSOHN's
including the following given names:

Ber, Berek, Dawid, Eljasz, Emanuel, Gerszon, Hersz, Jakier, Jankiel,
Lejzer, Majer, Mendel, Moszek, Wolf and Perla.
I noticed this e-mail because that Directory might have a clue for me:

Grandfather Wolf PRASZNYCER (variant spelling) was probably born in
Kalisz Gub., (I am on the track there) but I have so far only found
him for certain in Zakroczym 1859-68 (children's B and D records). He
was married to Bajla nee KATZ.

In 1875 I find him again when he, as a widower, in Plock marries our
grandmother Szeyne Blume nee KRAJANEK. I have looked for Bajla's
death in Zakroczym 1868-1875 (and Plock) but not found her or and
other trace of that family in those years. On the other hand I have -
thanks to JRI-PSA project - found a Bajla PRASZNYCER who died in
Warszawa 1869. Due to family hear-say ("my father said he lived in
Madame Curie's town"!) I suspected all along that the family somehow
had a connection to Warszawa City so I sent for that record a few
months ago but havn't got it yet.

Wolf was a weawer, a tallith maker, and I wonder whether he might
have had a small workshop, so he would be mentioned in that
Directory? The PRASZNYCER name is not a common name.

Thanks

Locating marriage license #general

Sam Eneman <seneman@...>
 

Friends,

I'm hoping one of the really great genealogy detectives here on Jewishgen
can help me with this problem.

My wife's elderly aunt suffers >from dementia and doesn't have very good
memory these days. She is a WWII veteran and needs to get some services
from the VA. Problem is that her discharge papers show her maiden name and
she now uses her married name. So we need her marriage license as proof of
the name change.

No one in the family recalls the date or place of their wedding. We think
it was in the late 40s or early 50s. Her husband died in the early 1970s in
Florida. She now lives in California but we haven't been able to find a
marriage license any where in her very disorganized papers.

At first she didn't remember being married at all. Then she said they got
married at a Justice of the Peace on their way >from NY to Florida. No idea
if there's any truth to that.

Any ideas at all how we can track down her marriage license?

Thanks,

Sam Eneman

Re: Estates #courland #latvia

CWhippman@...
 

Martha Lev Zion is our expert in individual estates. Schoenburg is now
called Skaitskalne and is near Bauska. This is near the Lithuanian border
but still very much a part of Courland. It had a thriving Jewish
population since the 18th century until the 20th century. Hope this helps.
What names are you searching and have you tried the All Latvia Database?
Best regards Constance Whippman [e-mailing >from London]
