Searching Grozovsky from Slutsk #general

Jerry Zevin
 

Searching the 3 sons of Gershon Grozovsky (1825-1873). Originally
from Grozovo, settled in Slutsk.
These three brothers took different surnames: Grozovsky (emigrated to
Israel), Kregstein (emigrated to NY/NJ), and Zevin (emigrated to Boston).

Any help, especially regarding the Grozovsky family in Israel, would be
most appreciated.

Upcoming Ukraine SIG Data Acquisitions part 3 of 3 #general

Janette Silverman
 

Ukraine SIG has the opportunity to acquire copies of 41,057 pages of
documents >from various archives in Ukraine for the purpose of
translation and indexing. In order to do this, we need to raise $8,300.
If you would like to make a donation lease do to to the Ukraine SIG
digital documents acquisition and translation project - you can get
there through the JewishGen or Ukraine SIG websites, under the donate
tab. What follows is a list of the towns and types of documents we will
be acquiring. Because the list is so long, I am sending this in 3 parts
over 3 days. This is the third part, P-Z.

Once we obtain the documents they will still need to be translated and
indexed. Once that is done, the information will be searchable through
the JewishGen databases. Based on our agreements with the resources
from whom we acquire the copies, Ukraine SIG only makes the copies
available to the translators. Anyone wanting a copy of the record will
need to get it >from the archive that holds the originals.

The list that follows includes the towns, years covered and the types of
documents.

Many thanks to all of you who answered my questions about what is a
schaechter and a Konfessionsschule.

Your answers were what I guessed. I asked translate google before
asking you and they didn't help me, but you all surely did. Thanks so much!

Fischel WOLFF (1839-1907) #germany

oliverbryk@...
 

I am looking for information about the ancestors and descendants of
Fischel WOLFF, born 4/24/1839 and died 6/12/1907.
His wife Adelheid GRUMACH was born 3/8/1849 and died 7/2/1927. Her
ancestry and siblings are well documented (see Geni.com).
Fischel's and Adelheid's dates are >from their grave stone in
Berlin's Weissensee Cemetery. Presumably someone saw to their
burial.
The grave stone includes words implicitly attributed to Adelheid (notice
the rhyming of lines 2&4 and 3&5):

Hier ruht in Gott mein innigst geliebter Mann
Du schiedest schnell. Im tiefsten Schmerz
l=C3=A4sst du verwaist mich stehen
nur ein Trost bleibt dem armen Herz
Es gibt ein Wiedersehen

(My dearly beloved husband rests here in God.
You left me soon, leaving me orphaned in my deepest pain.
The only solace remaining for the poor heart is knowing that we will see
each other again.)
I apologize for my amateurish translation.

I shall be grateful for information regarding Fischel WOLFF's
ancestors and descendants.

Re: What is a schaechter and a Konfessionsschule? #germany

bsmannlein@...
 

Konfessionschule basically means a parochial school -
a school in which children of the same religion are taught.

Schaechter is the German pronunciation of the Hebrew
word for schochet, the ritual slaughterer.

Konfessionschule basically means a parochial school -
a school in which children of the same religion are taught.

Schaechter is the German pronunciation of the Hebrew
word for schochet, the ritual slaughterer.

The Schaechter is the schochet.
The Konfessionsschule or Bekenntnisschule is a school for children of a
certain confession / denomination: protestant, catholic, Jewish. In certain
periods and regions/states the elementary and higher schools were completely
run as a Konfessionsschule. Today they exist as private schools in addition
to the state or community organized schools.

Sealed Train (from Germany to Lisbon) #general

Edy netter <e.netter@...>
 

I am researching my grandmother's escape >from Germany (Goeppingen,
near Stuttgart) by "sealed train" and then, on May 15, 1941, on the SS
Siboney >from Lisbon to NYC.

I am interested in getting any information I can on the "sealed train."
I have done whatever research I know how to do - library, institutional
(I.e. US Holocaust Museum, etc), Jewish refugee organizations and online
- but I have not gotten much information. Any personal experiences or
leads on where to get information, would be appreciated.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

Excommunication is a term most frequently heard in the context of
Catholic excommunication, but it also exists in Jewish tradition,
known in the Torah as "herem," This week's excerpt is a short one
from the Yizkor book of Wyzszkow, a town about 30 miles northeast
of Warsaw. (In 1897, it had a Jewish population of 3,200 in 1897
and in 1921, shortly before the event described in this excerpt,
about 4,400). In his account titled "The Excommunication (der
kheyrem)", Borukh Yismakh/Ismaj describes such an event and how it
shook and divided the community.
