Searching: HOROWITZ from Michalovce #general

emil grossman4 <jeds@...>
 

The HOROWITZ family left Michalovce in about 1961/62 and settled in the
Los Angeles CA. area . Bill HOROWITZ has two daughters who left Slovakia
with him. He is a childhood friend of my father (Mr. David Grossman). It
is quite possible that the HOROWITZ name was changed after arrival in
the USA. Please respond to me directly.

GenAmi , issue number 7, contents #general

Micheline GUTMANN <MichelineGUTMANN@...>
 

GenAmi number 7 , first issue of the year, has been sent to our members.

Here are some of the articles found in this issue:
- Carel ASSER, Dutch member of the Grand Sanhedrin of Napoleon,
related to the most known families of Amsterdam and Berlin.
A great lawyer whose descendance had also a great influence on
the Jewish community and an important place among the high-ranking
servants of the state. History and genealogy of the family.
- The DREYFUSS family of Niederhagenthal (Alsace).
Several members of GenAmi are descendants.
- A complement about the capitaine DREYFUS family (of Rixheim) in
Sultzburg.
- New publications of GenAmi : lists of descendance of families :
LEVY of Durmenach, WEYL of Bollwiller, DREYFUSS of Niederhagenthal,
RUEFF of Blotzheim and the most expected one: Volume II of
the HAUSER family of Durmenach, related to quite all the Jewish
families of Alsace, especially Haut-Rhin , and Besancon.
As the volume I, it is an important book for Alsatian Jewish genealogy.

Re: JewishGen FTJP security #belarus

Prof. G. L. Esterson <jerry@...>
 

Hi,

I am the person that posted the original message discussing the
problem of a certain company that has begun to mine genealogy
information >from family tree web sites, and to charge their
subscribers for the use of that information. At the end of that
message, I placed the following statement and request: "I suspect
that the new data base of the Family Tree of the Jewish People project
is safe >from this type of piracy, except in the case of a determined
person who will develop a special approach for that purpose, but I
would like to hear >from some one connected with the planning of the
FTJP project as to whether our data are safe there."

I wish to thank Warren Blatt for responding to the above request. As
the person leading the team of volunteers who carried the Family Tree
of the Jewish People Project >from beginning to end for JewishGen, and
saw to the preparation of the JewishGen web site to make available the
data contributed by countless Jewish genealogists, Warren is certainly
in the best position to explain the precautions taken by the team to
protect the family trees submitted to this project.

I have carefully read Warren's description of the precautions which he
has put in place to protect the FTJP data base >from mining by
outsiders. In my opinion, these precautions represent a reasonable
cost-benefit balance between the the benefits to all genealogy
researchers and to the researchers submitting their trees (in terms of
making them available for legitimate research while at the same time
providing reasonable security for the trees themselves) as opposed to
the costs of doing this.

This type of decision-making is what all of us go through when we
consider how to protect our homes, or other possessions, >from those
who would try to steal >from them. Each of us makes his own evaluation
as to how much protection to achieve versus his cost of obtaining that
level of protection. And we all understand that one hundred percent
protection is unobtainable. The best we can hope for is to make the
challenge to "most" intruders so great that "most" of them will not
accept the challenge.

And this is true of the FTJP data base. The level of protection
provided is not one hundred percent, but it is sufficient that most of
us would be satisfied to accept it. This is not the place to describe
those few instances for which the protection can be breached.

On my own behalf, and I hope on behalf of the Jewish genealogy
community, I wish to compliment Warren and his team on the excellent
facility which they have prepared for us all.

Jerry Esterson, Ra'anana, Israel

Searching: JADLOWKER, Hermann -> Riga, Latvia July 5 or 20, 1877 #general

Doris Hartmann <doris@...>
 

Originated in Riga, Latvia

Hermann Jadlowker emigrated/escaped to Vienna early 1900s, discovered by
Kaiser Wilhelm & brought to Germany.

Came to NY and sang with Metropolitan Opera 1910-1912.

Returned to Berlin Court Opera 1912-1919.

Retired >from opera & returned to Riga 1919--became cantor & voice
teacher in his local synagogue.

Came to Tel Aviv in 1938. Became voice teacher there.

Died 1953.

Used JewishGen, but found nothing. Also searched on Jadlowker's name on
Internet; found references to his glorious operatic life, but nothing
about his background.

What I want to know is--am I related to Hermann Jadlowker?

I saw his picture in the 1999 edition of "The Fifty-Three Tenors," a
datebook published by The Metropolitan Opera. When I looked at Hermann
Jadlowker's picture, I thought I was looking at my son, Karl--there was
a great resemblance. There was also a good resemblance to my father,
Philip Zabitz. Hermann, Philip & Karl share a love of music: Hermann
was an operatic tenor; my father was a musician & music teacher; Karl is
a musician & wants to teach music.

My father, Philip Zabitz, was born in or near Minsk in 1896. My
grandfather, Alter (Abraham) Zabitz (the last name would have sounded
more like Zhabich in Russia), was born in Smilovitch in 1869--he
belonged to a traveling klezmer orchestra. My grandmother, Shayna, was
born in (I believe) Dyatlovo, Poland (now Belorus) in 1868. Shayna and
Alter had 10 children!

Dad has always stated that we are "Litvaks," if that's any help.

Jadlowker may be his Germanized name, which Hermann (if that's his
original first name) may have decided to adopt. He may have had another
name in Riga.

Can you help me? Thank you.

My understanding is that these maps were/are kept up to date by physically
pasting corrections over areas that were changed, thereby losing the earlier

originals or latest update versions or perhaps both?

Do libraries maintain multiple versions for different years?

By the way, for Los Angeles researchers-- L.A. maps are archived at Cal State
