Krasnoluki #belarus

Jerold Touger
 

I have reason to believe that there may once have been members of the TOUGER (or
TAVGER or TOGER or. . . ) family in Krasnoluki, which is about 12 miles SSE of
Lepel and 22 miles northeast of Borisov. It is also very near the towns of
Chasniki and Cholopenichi, where there has been a TOUGER presence. I would be
grateful for any relevant information about Krasnoluki. I am especially
interested in knowing if there is any information >from the 1860's/1870's.

Software question #belarus

Stanley N Golembe <ocstan@...>
 

I realize this is not a Belarus question, but thought someone out there
could help.
I need a new software program for my genealogy work. I have been using
Reunion for Windows for years, but as you may know, they went out of the
Windows end of the business. Has anyone been using a really good program
they can recommend?
Also, for a friend, I need a recommendation on a good Mac genealogy
program.

Thanks Stan Golembe

MODERATOR'S NOTE: "Reunion" for Windows did not go out of Business.
Leister Software sold the rights to the Windows version of Reunion to
Sierra Software. They market an updated version of the Reunion for Windows
as "Generations". I was a our local SAM's Club this week and it was selling for $39.95 USD and even came with a Social Security Death Index CD.
I personally use the Reunion v.6.01 for the Macintosh and am very pleased
with it. I purchased the "Generations" Deluxe Edition for Windows to test
and compare to the Mac Reunion program. They are virtually the same.

Schey von Koromla #hungary

Georg Gaugusch <e9526666@...>
 

Because there was big response on the Markbreiter-matter and the famous
family Schey de Koromla >from Guens, here some more information on them.
Philipp Schey, Groszhaendler in Guens, and his nephew Friedrich became
nobilitated with "von KOROMLA" in 1859, austrian knights in 1863 and
austrian barons 1869 (Friedrich) and 1871 (Philipp). Philipp had no
children. The children of Friedrich were married to all famous jewish
families of the austro-hungarian empire (Ephrussi, Przibram, Rapoport von
Porada, Goldschmidt-Rothschild, Lieben, Landauer, Worms, Lang). The tomb of
Philipp is in Guens (does anyone know the epithaph?), the tomb of Friedrich
is in Vienna (Zentralfriedhof First Gate, jewish part).

The best information is in the Gotha Handbook of nobility (Barons 1909-1933)

Here are some questions about the community in Guens:
- Is there somebody, who has contact to some older members of the jewish
community there?
- Exists any history of the famous families >from Guens?
- Has anyone Photos >from the cemetary?

Strange family-name: SRUH #hungary

Georg Gaugusch <e9526666@...>
 

Here is a question about a quite strange name, only found in the area of
western Slovakia (Preszburg, St. Georgen, Stampfen, Neutra) and later
Vienna. It seems, that the family came >from Galicia, but this is uncertain,
the first bearer of the name is a Jacob ben Wolf SRUH, servant of Markus
Fein in Vienna in 1787 (>from Galicia), his son was Jacob Sruh (born St.
Georgen near Preszburg ca. 1803, died in Vienna 1. IV. 1868, merchant,
married to Therese KORITSCHONER >from Preszburg). Another SRUH was merchant
in Neutra in 1859.

Has anyone an idea what the name could mean? I think it might be an odd
abbreviation of a hebrew word, but nobody in Vienna had any idea, what it
should be.

Has anyone seen this name anywhere in Galicia?

There is a wonderful fictional movie about a Russian immigrant couple in
that neighborhood that is historically very accurate, and is set around the
corner >from the tenement you mentioned. It is called "Hester Street" and
it's available on video.

What I find is that the 1900 and the 1910 Federal

Census', and the 1905 City Census show that more that 98% of the tenants
where >from Russia and almost all spoke Yiddish as their native tongue. ..I would like to see how many of you find that this holds true about
our families during that early period of time. ...

SATTLER in Poland #general

Ellen Sattler-Harpin <EHarpin@...>
 

Hello,
I have been working on my SATTLER line for some time. My gm, Anna
SATTLER, left Bielcza, then part of Austria but later returned to
Poland, in 1913, leaving her family behind. The only known survivors of
the Holocaust were two nieces, daughters of one of her sisters, and a
brother. He died in NY, and I have sent for his SS-5. One of the nieces
died in Bytom, Katowice, Poland in 1995, information I received through
a lucky contact with a city official there. The remaining niece lives in
Paris. A member of this list called her for me, and she told her she
wanted no contact. I did write to her and asked if she could tell me her
mother's name. She wrote back a nice enough letter but made it clear
that she thinks I need to forget this "nonsense" because they are all
dead. Does anyone have any idea how to go about getting information on
the family with what little I have? I do have my gm's naturalization
papers and her ship listing as well as her death certificate. I know her
parents were Mendel SATTLER and Chaia/Chaya Gella JACOBOVITZ. I believe
they were in the Cracow area but can find nothing else. Any help would
be appreciated.
