The Politics of Censuses in Russia #belarus

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

I just glanced again at the research and was surprised that the individual
living with both MORDECHAI and his son SHMUEL ZISELMAN, Aron Abramovitch
Rashkind was listed as 40 years old in 1834 in one document, and 56 years
old in another, both called census record (revision list). Hirsha Slevitch
in one list is described as 18 in 1816, and 25 in 1834!!

Either these were errors of the census taker, or somebody was pulling someone's leg. Can anybody shed some light on this?

Lubavitcher chassidim....

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

The research shows the names of Aron ABRAMOVITCH RASHKIN, age 56 in 1834
and Hirshe NOKHIMOVITCH SLEVITCH, aged 25 in 1834. Do these names ring a
bell to anyone? Thanks.

What was court exile in 1834? #belarus

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

The research shows that Aron Ziselman, aged 20, was sent to "exile" by
court decision in 1834. Does anyone know what that means? Was it lifelong
exile in Siberia, and for what purpose at that time? Thanks.

Nurnberg Historian in Jerusalem's Old City || Schwartz? || info on Cantor Katz? #general

MBernet@...
 

==I recently posted an enquiry about a Cantor Katz >from Nurnberg, Germany, who
was cantor in Newfoundland >from 1938-42 when he left for the USA. I want to
thank all who gave me information--you've been very helpful.

Someone sent me a message about a man--I think his name was Schwartz--in
Jerusalem's Old City. He is around 70 years old, and is considered THE
historian of Nurnberg's Jews. I was very excited and hoped to meet him on my
trip to Jerusalem in mid-October.

==I got the message complete with address and telephone number--but before I
could utilize it, Yom Kippur came and wiped out the file (together with my
sins, I hope). I feel very stupid and want to apologize to the sender Does
anyone know this Mr., Doctor, or Rabbi Schwartz, in the Old City of Jerusalem?
Do you have his address or phone number? He has no e-mail, and I was told to
write him in Hebrew or in German--and I don't have much time left to contact
him.

==I'm interested in any information on the Jews of Nurnberg, and those of
Bamberg and its surrounding villages.

==Please send replies to me at <A HREF="mBernet@aol.com">mBernet@aol.com</A>
with a copy to <A HREF="SheilaTan@aol.com">SheilaTan@aol.com</A>

==Gmar Chatima Tovah to all (May you be sealed for a good year)

Chaver #general

Haim Fridman <fridman@...>
 

Khaver in modern Hebrew means a friend or a member of an organization. But
that has nothing to with its use on a tombstone.

Khaver is an informal title used when referring to a learned person or
religious functionary such as a Shokhet or Khazan, who does not have
rabbinical ordination.

It is in use particularly on tombstones or when calling up such a person to
the Torah or in correspondence.

SHEALTIEL TV programs #general

IsraelP <p2o5rock@...>
 

Israel TV (Channel One) is to be broadcasting a three part series on
the Shealtiel family, which supposedly traces itself back to King
David. The broadcast is Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and
I'd expect it to be of interest to genealogists in general, bot
academically and because anyone who goes back that far must be
related to nearly everyone else.

I phoned the station to see if they are planning to offer video
cassettes with subtitles and they said they hadn't thought of that
but will give it consideration. (This about a program subtitled
"Worldwide Family!!")
