cantors in the 1920's #general

carol lipson
 

I just received immigration/naturalization papers for my great uncle,
Benjamin Bachrach. The documents say he came to Canada to be a cantor at a
congregation in Winnipeg ("Beith Abraham"). But then the various reports on
him give his occupation as merchant. Would a job as cantor not have been a
full-time paid job during that period?

Re: Pittsburgh #general

My Grandfather & Grandfather came to Pittsburgh >from Beltsy, Moldova - then
Beltzi, Rumania in 1921 through Ellis Island. He lived there for a short
time & then moved on to Akron, Ohio. He went to Pittsburgh because he had
family there. His Name was CRASNEANSKY, Nachman later changed to Nathan
Kraus. Some cousins used the name KRASNER. My Grandmother's family in
Pittsburgh were named GELFANT-GELFAND later changed to HELMAN and then they
all moved to Akron also. If any of you know of any Helman's or Kraus's or
Krasner' I would love to hear >from you. Happy Hanukah to all!

OBA stood for Orthodox Burial Association. It was frequently found on the
older death certificates of Jews >from Minneapolis. Many of these Jews were
buried at the Minneapolis Jewish Cemetary and the United Hebrew Brotherhood
Cemetary in Minneapolis.

lookup a LDS microfilm #general

Nicole Berline <berline@...>
 

a call for help :

I located a record indexed in JRI PL database.
The most accessible FHC for me told me on the phone that I would have to
wait at least a month to look at the microfilm .

This record is the first trace I find of the family of my mother, who
was entirely exterminated in Warsaw. the person bears the same name and
surname as my grand father: Berek ROTENSZTEIN, so he could well be the
gf of my gf, and it was a great emotion to find it.

Could someone look up the microfilm for me and send me a photocopy of
the record ? Of course I would pay for the expenses.
Please contact me privately.

Below is the information >from JRI PL database:

database WARS1824 ( Warsaw 1824-25 districts 3 , 4)
number of the microfilm where this INDEX appears: 0689514
possible numbers of the microfilm where the RECORD is : 0680827 0689513
0689514

MODERATOR NOTE: It may come as a surprise to Nicole Berline and others
outside North America to learn that LDS films often take more than a month
to arrive at local Family History Centers even in the US. If any
JewishGenner in or near Salt Lake City, or whose local FHC has these films
on long-term loan, would like to respond to this request, please do so
privately as requested.

Another element here is the German spelling reforms around the turn of
the century, possibly between 1900 and 1905, the most notable of which
was the virtual replacement of earlier "c" by "k" or "z" according to
pronunciation and the following vowel, a change not adopted by the slav
languages; in other words many German words would have had a "c"
pronounced as "ts" before that time.

There are other cases that would be worth considering for the new
resource that JRW has suggested. The variations between "c" and "cz"
between slav languages; the fact that the "g/h" interchange often noted
in the list for Russian also applies toslav languages written in roman
characters, for instance slovene "grad" against czech "hrad". Further
confusion arises, mainly in pronunciation but inevitably in
transliteration also, >from the opposing uses of "sz" and "s" between
Hungarian and slav languages.

I should be happy to contribute whatever material I can find to a new
resource.
