Translation from Minsk Archives Needed #belarus

KKirshner@...
 

I received a quick response to a letter sent to the Minsk Archives, asking
about information related to LURIA/LEVIN, SINGER, CHIDEKEL, BERMAN,
MOONIK/MUNIC, and one MIRKIN by marriage to CHIDEKEL, all of the Disna Uezsd,
Vilna Giberna pre-WWII. The only problem is it is all in Russian (or
Belorussian?). It looks like Russian. The only English states:
"Beneficiary: National Historical Archive of Belarus"
"Bank of Beneficiary:" with account info.
and "Correspondent Bank:" with account info and a Wall Street Address.
Can someone help me by translating it, if I sent a copy by snail mail or
scanned it and sent it as an attachment or faxed a scan of it? Any advice
would be appreciated.

While I'm at it, perhaps someone could come up with the
proper pronunciation/transliteration/translation of
"Zayin-Aleph-Vov-Vov-Ayin-Lamed", which appears on the gravestone of
another great-grandfather as his father's name.
That is Zavel' or Zovel', a name based on the German form of the name Shaul or
Saul, and found, according to Beider, in Odessa and Shavli at the beginning of
the century.

I seek a volunteer to photocopy Munkacs Jewish Censuses. #hungary

Dennis Baer <dbaer@...>
 

Hello

I seek someone to volunteer to photocopy Jewish censuses of Munkacs for
various years. I have the Land Tax Census for 1828 which has many Jewish
people listed. I also have a census for 1763 for Munkacs and that does not
appear to have many Jews listed. Someone mentioned that a separate Jewish
Census for Munkacs exists of the 1700's. If you can find Jewish censuses for
Munkacs for various years >from the 1600's to 1910 and can photocopy them, I
will scan them and make them available to HSIG. I do not make any money of
the distribution of this census, in fact I will encourage anyone who will
get use out of the census to consider making a donation to the Rabbi of
Munkacs in the name and memory of Manny (Max) Schantz (Menachem Mendel ben
Shmuel).

Thank you.

New book: Olami or Olamei #hungary

I would like to bring to your attention a recently published book by >Mesorah and the Orthodox Union. Written by Ruth Mermelstein, and titled >Beyond the Tracks, it is one of the few Holocaust memoirs >from a Munkacs >survivor written in English.

Apropos of new books. A publishing house affiliated with Chug Chasam Sofer=
in Benei Berak has recently published (with the aid and involvement of the oft- mentioned and prodigious Rabbi Zisha Kinstlicher) a book of memoirs and genealogy by A. Weinberger about all his various Hungarian Jewish family lines. The book, titled Olamei (Hebrew for "My Worlds") alludes to the pre-war world that was destroyed, the world of persecution and murder of the Holocaust years and the new world of post-war Jewry. However, most of the book is devoted to genealogy. I did not purchase the book or even ask the price, and certainly did not copy down the list of families discussed, but Beigeleisen Book Store in Boro Park has it for sale and I am sure it is available in Israel although I did not notice it in the bookstores when I was in Jerusalem 4 weeks ago.

**************************
To whoever asked about Rabbi Yitzchak Zvi Lebovic, the author of Shulchan
HaEzer. There is some information in Yitzchak Yosef Cohen's "Chachmei Hungariah" but probably more in Shem Hagedolim (Schwartz). The author of Shem Hagedolim Me-Eretz Hagar was a cousin of Y Z Lebovic, who married the daughter of Shlomo Zalamn Ehrenreich, rabbi of Samlau, who was a grandson of Abraham Yitzchok Hacohen Schwartz (the "Kol Aryeh"). Pinchas Hacohen Schwartz of Oradea/Nagyvarod/ Grossvardein, the author of Shem Hagedolim Me-Eretz Hagar was also a grandson of the Kol Aryeh. As far as I can make out all Ehrenreichs seem to be related to this one family, and nearly all Schwartz's who are Kohanim seem to be connected to the Kol ARyeh family. They are also very active in reprinting the many works authored by members of the clan. (The son of the Kol Aryeh married the daughter of my g-g-uncle Rabbi Koppel Blau of Verbo, hence a tangential personal interest.)

Re: Pre registration Jewish births in England #general

I know that this thread has been closed, but I hope that you will allow
this informative answer.

1. look on the IGI, you can find references there. One of the reasons
that you can find references there is that some Jewish births ARE noted in
Parish records.

2. Examine Parish records as not all are indexed on the IGI.

3. The Church of the Latter Day Saints have microfilmed various early
English Synagogue records. These include some births and circumcision
records.

Keep looking Ben, some of us have taken your query seriously.
