Searching for the MIESZCZANIN/MASTIN and ZISOOK families #belarus #usa

Bob Silverstein
 

I am looking for the Mieszczanin and Zisook families from Motol, Antopol and Drohitchin.  Zisook has other spellings such as Ziszuk, and Czuk.   Mieszczanin became Mastin and Maston.  The families settled mainly in Chicago.  My particular challenge is to find out who was the couple that gave rise to this extended family.

Thanks for your help.

It’s interesting that the birth certificate shows the mother’s maiden name.  That’s a somewhat rare commodity in our genealogical endeavors!

Need translation for "Gothic" German #translation #poland #warsaw

kesspark@...
 

I have letters written in "Gothic" German that need translation. Can anyone help me with this?
Do you know why someone would write in Gothic German rather than German? The author of the letters taught German in Warsaw in the 1920s-1930s.

One letter (two pages) is on viewmate:

Good work, Angel!  Allen:  perhaps the young David “Boroski” was simply named after the same David as the head of household.

Foundation of the Jewish community in England - Free lecture #unitedkingdom

David Mendoza
 

Menasseh ben Israel vs. The Rabbis

Think conflicts within Jewish communities are something new? The
re-admission of Jews to England may have been a consequence of a squabble
between Amsterdam rabbis!

With the merger of the three original Amsterdam Sephardic communities, the
city found itself with four rabbis. All of them were strong characters.
Inevitably, there were disputes over who had religious authority and who
should be paid the most.

It is possible that Menasseh's trip to London, and the establishment of a
Jewish community there, partly had its roots in his differences with Saul
Levi Morteira, Isaac Aboab, David Pardo.

Our expert speaker this week, Professor Steven Nadler, is Professor of
Philosophy and of Jewish Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His
research focuses on philosophy in the seventeenth century. He has written
extensively on Descartes and Cartesianism, Spinoza, and Leibniz. He also
works on medieval and early modern Jewish philosophy. His publications
include biographies of Spinoza and Menasseh ben Israel.

Re: Hidden children in Belgium - Polyclinique Chant d'Oiseau Woluwé #general

evelynehaendel@...
 

Dear Debbie,
Maybe my previous email did not reach you (I sent it private). In any event, I believe you are the person who is now in contact with someone of former convent of Franciscains who indicated that a Dr. Cordier had clinic in Chant d'Oiseaux, no longer active.   My contact  told me they had received a similar request as mine a few days ago.He thought that it is likely that a Jewish child may have been born and/or hidden in this Clinic not existing any longer.  He would be asking one of  Docteur's daughter when and if he sees her.
Let me know if you need further help.  I live in Brussels and I am a volunteer for The Hidden Child Foundation/ADL in New York. I'd be glad to help.
Best,
Evelyne Haendel

Re: Internment camps in Switzerland 1939-1945 #holocaust

Frank Bond
 

I had family in these camps, and I have found little specific documentation of the camps themselves. I have looked for photos but have found almost nothing. Under the laws of the time, if your father's first cousin had married a Swiss worker, she would have lost her Swiss citizenship; women were assigned the citizenship of their husbands. This was true in almost all western countries at that time. I had Swiss-born extended family who were not protected by the Swiss government during WW2 because they had earlier married men who were citizens of other countries.  

The Swiss government maintained detailed records on the people in the camps, and you can order copies from the Swiss Federal Archives. Search the archives for Alfred's name. You have to pay for the copies, which are sent digitally.

Re: 1930 census - invented people #general #records #usa

kosfiszer8@...
 

Is it possible that the 3 children were the children of a brother in law Boroski? In the 1925 and 1940 census you have a Boroski living in the household. There is no Boroski in the 1930 census.  I suspect the Boroski children were in the house and they were recorded with the wrong Last name.
