Rabbinical families genealogy #general

IsraelP <p2o5rock@...>
 

There are numerous collections and sources in Hebrew, among which I have
found Meir Wunder's "Meorei Galitzia" invaluable for rabbinical families
with roots in Galicia.
Also Atlas Etz Hayyim, which has an index by names of publications.

In his post of 28 September, Burt Masnick asks whether there is someone
he can contact with knowledge of Rabbinical families, books, archives,
etc. One possible source of information is the Union of Orthodox
Rabbis of the U.S. and Canada, 235 East Broadway, New York City, NY
10002. Their phone number is 212/964-6337.

Taverns in Poland #general

IsraelP <p2o5rock@...>
 

For those who inquired about taverns in Poland.

There is a small book in Hebrew ,printed in Warsaw 1898, written by
Yehudah Leib Lipkind (of Borisov) called "HaShetiyya KaDat" all about
wine. How to make it, how to get a license to sell it, etc etc etc.
I've seen it at the Hebrew U Library and it may be available
elsewhere. (I have the catalogue number somewhere, if it helps.)

Re: Inns in the late 1800's in Poland #general

Myrna Levin <mlevin1412@...>
 

Does anyone know anything about a tavern or inn in Sanok, Poland? Someone
onced mentioned that my father's family(NADELSTEICHER) might have owned
one. This would be in the early 1900's.

Thank you,

I received a private note >from Jane Lowenkron asking if there were any
special tax records in respect of alcohol sales.

I've checked again in Suzan Wynne's book, and I can't find anything about
tax records, though there is a section on taxes which talks of taxes on
Jewish marriages and tax evasion. I also see that the big exodus between
1880 and 1910 is blamed on floods, famines and a series of epidemics, and
it was not only Jews who were leaving Galicia at that time.

I posted a message a couple of days ago about VELONSKY as an article I
have written about the surname has just been published. I have quite a lot
of information about Vilonsky and variants. Happy to post article to you
if you provide postal address or I could even try email! What info have you
got about your ancestral town? Did you get any other responses?

Records #poland

Vivian Salama <salassoc@...>
 

Where would I write to find records of Silesian cities and towns when they
were under German rule? I am specifically looking for 19th century birth,
marriage and death records of towns such as: Breslau, Striegau, Glatz,
Brieg, Waldenburg.

Re: Puzzled about my GGM #hungary

I think that death records are the least reliable of all records. Often,
the information is given by a person who is the least distressed and
with the least accurate information at the time of the death. Of a
husband and wife, the spouse who dies first has a much better chance of
having a certificate with the correct information because the other
spouse, who knows the information, is alive and available for
questioning. When the second spouse dies, all bets are off. An in law,
neighbor or grandchild could have provided the information and just got
it all mixed up with other family information.

In my family I have a similar situation. In marriage records >from the
1870s, the mother is listed as Sarlotta Kanitz Back. But when she died
(and she died second) all of a sudden she's Sarlotta Epstein.

So, I'd go with the birth certificate and try to find more corroborating
sources.

Re: Graz Austria #austria-czech

DWSAnes@...
 

In August, we were in Austria and Germany. At the request of a member of H-
Sig, I sought out information on his family in Graz. In doing so, I learned
that there is a Jewish community in existence in Graz at the sight of the
former Synagogue. It is run by a Doktor Henker (frau). They have computerized
all of the birth, marriage and death records of the Jewish communities in
Styria (Southeastern Austria), There are between 100-150 members of the
Jewish community in Graz. The office is the Israelitische Kultusgemeinde at
58 Grieskai. There is a black obelisk monument on the site of the former
synagogue as well a plaque on the wall of the adjoining building which
currently houses the office. In the offices there is a chapel which is
currently used primarily for the high holy day services. They hope to begin
to construct a new synagogue within the next year on the site of the previous
one. I was given a book entitled "Geschichte der Juden in Sudost-Osterreich
(I have not figured out how to get the umlauts of the two o's). Suffice to
report that there is quite a history of the jews in and about this area of
Austria.

The Austrian part of our trip was in conjunction with the International
Federation of University Women. After leaving Graz we went into Germany and
spent two weeks doing Genalogy research on our families. We had amazing luck
and obtained a wealth of information and made many contacts. This was mostly
in the Frnaconia area of Bavaria as well as Baden Wurttenburg and Hessen.
More about this later should any one be interested.
