I have not been able to find any vital records online for the town of Sapotskin,
only a few >from fairly distant cities which include a person >from Sabotskin.
Miriam Weiner/RTR doesn't show any vitals either but I want to be sure I'm not
missing something before giving up...for the time being.

Mazarambroz, Spain #sephardic

Mazarambroz, Spain once had a Jewish population? This town is a little
southwest of Toledo, Spain.

I can find no reference to a Jewish population in the chartered town
(really never more than a village and with a population today of circa
1300 adults). That's not surprising as it was the private property of
the Catholic Brotherhood of San Martin de Montilla - so effectively an
Christian ecclesiastical town. It is possible that there was a Jewish
population in the town when it was part of the Caliphate of Cardoba,
prior to its reconquest in the late 11th century, but I can find no
indication of that either.

The only reference to the town with any Jewish resonance is to
Mazarambroz's most 'illustrious' son, Marcos Garcia de Mora (Marquillos
de Mazarambroz); a lawyer, who was a key figure in the persecution of
the Jewish Conversos of Toledo. In 1449 he published his purity of
blood 'Memorial' (legal statement), which sought to prove that New
Christians (Conversos) had been instrumental in the rebellion against
the king of that year and because of impure blood were historically
condemned and should never hold public office.

Oscar FRIEDMANN - Silesia #general

Peter Mcnally
 

Dear Genners.

I have been trying to trace the history my wife's ancestor Oscar
FRIEDMANN for many years now, with little success.

I have a handwritten family tree which gives his date of birth as
15.3.1852, and an illegible place of birth which looks a little like
'Breslau', where many of the family were born. Further back than that
- nothing.

His wife, Martha Moses was born in Ottmachau (Otmuchow). Their eldest
daughter Alice was born in Beuthen (Bytom), their other children were
born in Neisse (Nysa) near Ottmachau.

Herein lies my question, JRI-Poland recently updated births for the
town of Tarnowitz (Tarnowskie Gory), which lies close to Beuthen.
There is a birth for an Oscar Friedmann on 15.3.1855, Parents Julius
and Rosalie (Loewe).

I would appreciate your insights and opinions as to whether this is
one and the same Oscar Friedmann, and that somehow the dates (and
possibly place) in the handwritten tree are mistaken. What are the
chances of two different Oscar Friedmanns with the same birthday from
the same geographical location.

Many thanks for any suggestions

Leah and Lazarus MARKS Date and Place of Death #general

Michelle Sandler
 

I am looking for the place and date of death to find a death
certificate for my Great Great Grandparents Lazarus or Lesser MARKS
and Leah KREINZOHN Marks. Lazarus Marks was born in 1834 maybe in
Poland. Leah Kreinzohn was born in 1836 maybe in Poland. Their son
Harris Marks my mothers paternal grandfather was born in New York City
- Manhatten in September of 1868. Harris had a brother Samuel born in
1870 in New York City. Harris had another brother Joseph born in 1874
in New York City. Joseph died in October of 1888. Harris's two older
sisters Dora and Rose were born in Europe, the last one in 1866. I
have the family in the 1880 US Census and the 1890 Police Census.
Nothing after that. I have looked at New York Death certificate
indexes all the way up to 1930 and found nothing. I heard Lazarus and
Leah Marks may have moved to Israel in the 20th century. Samuel Marks
married Lizzie Zoin in New York City in 1893. I would love some help.
I have been working on this for over 30 years.

Yizkor Book Project, January 2017 #unitedkingdom

bounce-3272832-785714@...
 

Shalom,

So, a new year begins and with it much ado in the Yizkor Book Project. Once
again, for instance, I am delighted to inform you that yet another two
projects were successfully completed during January and they were:

Pabianice, Poland (The Pabianice Book: A Memorial for a Community) and I
wish to send out my appreciation to Jack Ekstein who is President of the
Pabianice Landsmanshaft, Melbourne, Australia. This book, which is a
translation of the original Pabianice Yizkor book, was published by the
landsmanshaft in Melbourne and generously donated to the Yizkor Book Project
to our grateful benefit.

Zbarazh, Ukraine (Zbaraz: the Zbaraz Memorial Book), the complete
translation of which came about through the great support of David Schulman,
allowing this project to become a reality.

Just like a journey, a Yizkor Book project begins with an initial step, and
this last month the first step was taken in arranging the translation of the
Nyasvizh, Belarus Yizkor book by the setting up of a Translations Fund to
this end. These funds provide a convenient way for those interested in
supporting the translation of a particular community book. If you have a
book that you would like see translated, please contact me and I'll explain
the steps in setting up such a Translations Fund. Other than that, if you
would like to do a "mitzvah" by supporting the Nyasvizh Fund or any other of
our Translation Funds, please see the link to the list at the end of this
report.

Many of the entries added this last month came >from the various Pinkasei
Kehillot (Community Encyclopedias) which have unique information about
communities that often don't have their own Yizkor book. If there is a
community you are looking for that you are struggling to find information
about, please contact me and I can check and let you know if there is a
relevant section available and how an English translation can be arranged
for it.

Finally, I am pleased to announce that a new book, which was compiled by
William Leibner, has kindly provided for inclusion on our online "shelves".
The book "Brichah" enlightens us in regards the underground "Brichah"
movement which aided Holocaust survivors to clandestinely leave Europe after
WW2 - a fascinating piece of history.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out
in the Yizkor Book Project over January.

We have added in a new book:

- "Brichah" http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/brichah/brichah.html

JewishGen Success! Stories - January edition #ciechanow #poland

Phyllis Kramer
 

We bring you three success stories that are sure to inspire. These
accounts bring us to Australia, South Africa, Israel, Poland, Germany,
Scotland, Belarus, Czech Republic, Austria, France, and more. You can
access these stories >from the "About Us" button on our website or by
following this link: http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Testimonials/

Eli Rabinowitz was named after his great-uncle who had tragically died
in an accident when he was a young man. That was all Eli knew, until a
connection made through JewishGen's Family Finder and an old 1920
school photo >from Poland given to him by his aunt prompted his journey
to solve the mystery of Moshe Rabinowitz.

Martin Tompa and Siva German connected via JewishGen's AustriaCzech
SIG mailing list when they discovered they were both researching the
Schueck family. By working together, they uncovered their common
great-great-grandparents and found the birth records of their
great-grandparents.

from our Archives, we bring you, again, a very moving story by Michael
Tobias, with Meredith Hoffman, about the reunion of cousins Moniek
Garber of Glasgow, Scotland, and Moshe Porat-Perelman of Kfar Saba,
Israel, who had last seen one another in the early spring of 1940.
They were joyously reunited, thanks to JewishGen, sixty-seven years
later, in 2007.

This issue was prepared by JewishGen volunteers -- Nancy Siegel, Editor
and our new Success! Stories Webmaster, Colin Mathias Justin. We hope
that you, too, will have success in your research using the abundant
resources of JewishGen and we encourage you to submit your own success
stories to us at: success@lyris.jewishgen.org

Yizkor Book Project, January 2017 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

So, a new year begins and with it much ado in the Yizkor Book Project. Once
again, for instance, I am delighted to inform you that yet another two
projects were successfully completed during January and they were:

Pabianice, Poland (The Pabianice Book: A Memorial for a Community) and I
wish to send out my appreciation to Jack Ekstein who is President of the
Pabianice Landsmanshaft, Melbourne, Australia. This book, which is a
translation of the original Pabianice Yizkor book, was published by the
landsmanshaft in Melbourne and generously donated to the Yizkor Book Project
to our grateful benefit.

Zbarazh, Ukraine (Zbaraz: the Zbaraz Memorial Book), the complete
translation of which came about through the great support of David Schulman,
allowing this project to become a reality.

Just like a journey, a Yizkor Book project begins with an initial step, and
this last month the first step was taken in arranging the translation of the
Nyasvizh, Belarus Yizkor book by the setting up of a Translations Fund to
this end. These funds provide a convenient way for those interested in
supporting the translation of a particular community book. If you have a
book that you would like see translated, please contact me and I'll explain
the steps in setting up such a Translations Fund. Other than that, if you
would like to do a "mitzvah" by supporting the Nyasvizh Fund or any other of
our Translation Funds, please see the link to the list at the end of this
report.

Many of the entries added this last month came >from the various Pinkasei
Kehillot (Community Encyclopedias) which have unique information about
communities that often don't have their own Yizkor book. If there is a
community you are looking for that you are struggling to find information
about, please contact me and I can check and let you know if there is a
relevant section available and how an English translation can be arranged
for it.

Finally, I am pleased to announce that a new book, which was compiled by
William Leibner, has kindly provided for inclusion on our online "shelves".
The book "Brichah" enlightens us in regards the underground "Brichah"
movement which aided Holocaust survivors to clandestinely leave Europe after
WW2 - a fascinating piece of history.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out
in the Yizkor Book Project over January.
