Seek names of students & teachers at the Juedische Maedchenschule Berlin (The Jewish School for Girls) #germany

Peter Wiesner <peterwiesner@...>
 

I am seeking lists of names of the students and teachers associated
with the Juedische Maedchenschule Berlin (The Jewish School for Girls
Berlin). Many were deported and killed. Some were able to emigrate.

My mother, Mary KROTOCZYNSKI, attended the Juedische Maedchenschule
Berlin >from 1933 to her graduation in 1937. She left Berlin on the
Kindertransport in 1939.

Part of an extensive network of schools run by the Berlin Jewish
Council, this school drew >from the Jewish teachers expelled >from the
lyceums who taught traditional subjects that would have been covered in
the public schools, plus Hebrew and Jewish culture.
After years of neglect, the building of Maedchenschule was repurposed.
Today it houses a restaurant, art gallery, and the Kennedy Museum. More
about the school: http://www.maedchenschule.org/en/history.html. I have
not been able to obtain the information I seek >from the current
management of the building.

I would appreciate information and advice regarding my search.

Mitteleschenbach, Bavaria, Jewish Community #germany

Ralph Baer
 

Has anyone found in their research any Jews who ever lived in
Mitteleschenbach which is in the Landkreis of Ansbach in Bavaria?

A 1769 list of some Jewish heads-of-family for Forth (now Eckental-Forth,
Landkreis Erlangen-Hoechstadt, Bavaria) states that my ancestor Wolf Hirsch
(Wolf, son of Hirsch) came there >from Mitteleschenbach. The list is
contained in the book "Geschichte der Juden in der Oberpfalz, Band III, Der
Bezirk Rothenberg (Schnaittach, Ottensoos, Huettenbach, Forth)" by Rabbi Dr.
Magnus Weinberg. It is repeated in the recent book "Shalom Forth" by Dr.
Martina Switalski with whom I have been in contact.

Mitteleschenbach may have been a misreading for Mittelehrenbach (Landkreis
Forchheim, Bavaria) which did once have a Jewish community and is also much
closer to Forth -- 15 km vs. 70 km.

Wolf Hirsch had three known sons: Hirsch Wolf ROSENHAIN, Samson Wolf GROESCH
(my 4th-great-grandfather), and Moses Baer Wolf REINWALD. I am also
interested in corresponding with anyone who is related to or has data about
any of their families.

Note that Forth is not the same place as Fuerth.

1. Re: Hungarian / Jewish Given names #hungary

Ruben Weiser
 

I agree that the Hungarian Jewish are the less preoccupied in naming the
children with an equivalent or similar sounding Hebrew and Hungarian name.
But we have to understand that a Jewish couple first decide the Hebrew name
of the child because it is almost a must to name it after a death ancestor /
relative and only then an official Hungarian name.
So when they will name a child with the Hebrew name that have a natural
equivalent or similar sounding civil Hungarian name, then it is 80% chance
that they pick that name.
For example if they decide the Hebrew name Moshe it will be Mor, Josef =
Josef , ester= Etel ,
But when the Hebrew name is Yeshayahu , Betzalel. Yeruchem Tzvi etc. Then
the parents will take a more Hungarian sounding name like Samuel , Simon
etc. And that will bring the question of why if the Hungarian name was
Samuel they don?t just named in Hebrew Shmuel ? and it is because their
death ancestor was Yeshayahu.
In resume, if you know an Hungarian Jew was named Moshe in Hebrew and you
don?t know his Hungarian name ,he was very probably named Mor or Moses in
Hungarian but if you know he was named Mor in civil record but you don?t
know his Hebrew name ,there is much less possibility that he was named Moshe
in Hebrew because he could be Yeshayahu , Betzalel , etc..

I hope it gives some clues..

It might depend on what the name is and even where they lived, or if
the name was really even a Hungarian name.

During the years I have been collecting BMD records and matching them
to the information I extracted >from tombstones in Slovakia, I have
seen certain naming patterns.

Recently, I shared with Peter Absolon, with whom I am working on the
Kosice cemetery in Slovakia, that a woman with a Yiddish name of Toybe
or Taube (depending on your pronunciation) was often Antonia in her
secular name, with a nickname of Toni(e).

Another curiosity that took me a long time to figure out, was why
women known as Josephine would have Yiddish name of Pesel or Perel or
nicknamed Pepi. The connection is strangely similar to Hispanics who
have a son named Jose who has a nickname of Pepe.

If a man had the name of Mor or Moritz, in most cases he was a Moshe.

These are just a few examples. So if you let me know the names you
are trying to match, I can check >from my records and past experience
and possibly give you some options.

Re: Hungarian / Jewish Given names #austria-czech

edelman@...
 

Hi,

Well... my experience with older records >from the area which is now
eastern Slovakia is that most Hebrew names - when I see them, and this
is not most of the time - are a close match to the Secular: For example,
Moses or Moshe is almost always Moricz in Hungarian (and finally Morris
in the USA.) Dov Ber is almost always the Secular German Bernhard and
the Hungarian Bernat (or Bernath, or Berko as a nickname) which becomes
Bernhard in the USA. This happened a lot in my family - but it might
just be MY family. My ggg-grandfather was Lebe in Hebrew, Leopold in
German Secular and Lipot in Hungarian Secular. His brother Yitzchak was
Ignacz, and not the only one with this couplet. With women, Rochel seems
to become Rachel (still a religious reference, of course) and sometimes
Regina... there are other examples.

I suppose my main point is that you shouldn't automatically discount
what seems like a match.

I've gotten a lot of help >from the Jewish Gen Given Names Database and
also www. behindthename.com. Another idea is to Google two names
together to see if they're used as transliteration couplets - if that's
an accurate term.

Kremenets: 1,300 pages of new records ... Kremenets, Berezhtsy, Pochayev #ukraine

Ronald D. Doctor <rondoctor@...>
 

I'm pleased to announce that the Kremenets District Research Group
(KDRG) has acquired about 1,300 page images of the following censuses,
tax lists, and vital records through our cooperative agreement with the
Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People.

* Kremenets district towns, 1922 Census, about 1,855 entries
* Kremenets town, 1894 Tax List, about 460 entries
* Kremenets town, 1906 Tax List, about 651 entries
* Kremenets town, 1911 Tax List, about 765 entries
* Kremenets Births, 1921
* Kremenets Marriages, 1884
* Kremenets Divorces, 1880-1885, 1888, 1890, 1892-1894, 1896, 1907, 1912
* Berezhtsy Deaths, 1889, 1892-1893, 1897-1898, 1904-1912
* Pochayev Divorces, 1915, 1922

The Census and Tax Lists are in Russian. Vital records before 1915 are
in Russian and Hebrew/Yiddish. Vital records >from 1915 onward are in
Polish. Fortunately our translator is quadrilingual.:-)

How to obtain the translations
============================

Researchers who contributed to our work within the past 2 years have
exclusive access to our KDRG Contributors website on Google.

https://sites.google.com/site/kdrgcontributors/home

This website contains pre-release (and downloadable) copies of _all_ of
our record translations and documents, even those that have not yet been
edited. These translations will not be publicly available until they are
proofread and edited, so it may be a year or more before you can access
them ... unless you contribute to our work. Early access to these
translations is a major benefit for our donors.

All researchers should start with the Concordance. It is freely
available, searchable and downloadable, on our JewishGen Kremenets
Kehilalinks website:

http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Kremenets/web-pages/master-surnames.html
Although the full translation spreadsheets will not be available to the
general public until they are proofread and edited, we will send up to
10 translated records at no charge to any researcher who identifies
entries of interest in our Concordance. Please contact me
(rddpdx@...) if you need information about how to obtain these
records or how to access the KDRG Contributors website.

How to Donate
==============

In cooperation with the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish
People (Hebrew University, Jerusalem) we are continuing our search for
and acquisition of additional records. We need your donations to help us
keep this work going. All donations are used exclusively to acquire and
translate records and documents. If you have any questions or if you
need more information, please contact me at rddpdx@....

Donations to our Kremenets Fundraising account on JewishGen may be made
on the
following web page:

<http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=22>

"Kremenets District Towns (Ukraine) - Records Acquisition and
Translation"
Your contributions are tax-deductible in the U.S. to the extent
permitted by law.

When you send your donation, please send me an e-mail message to let me
know the amount and date of your contribution so that we can be sure the
donation gets applied properly. If your employer has a matching gift
program, please think about matching your donation through that program.

I'm looking forward to hearing >from you.

Best wishes,

Ron
