Surname FEIS / Rechoim #general

Counsel17 <counsel17@...>
 

Does anyone know anything about this name? I have encountered it in letters
written by Simon FEIS to my ggf, Wilhelm WOLF, >from Deidesheim, Germany.

I also would like to know if the word "Rechoim" means anything in Yiddish or
German, since I've found it in a letter & it means nothing to me.

On behalf of a friend: looking for LUBACHEVSKI family
from Drogichin, Byelorus (Drohichin, Drohicyzn, Drohitchin)
pop. Prewar 1521 Jews, 69 Km West of Pinsk 52 11/ 21 09

Note: This is not to be confused with the similar sounding town in
Poland, Drohyczyn nad Bugiem, 88 Km SSW of Bialystok.(>from 'Where Once
We Walked' by Sallyann Sack and Gary Mokotoff).

Rachel LUBACHEVSKI m Isidore LOCKETZ, lived in Palestine, later went to
South Africa. All others in her family were apparently killed. There was
a cousin, ? APPELMAN, also in Palestine/ Israel.

Searching: ZLOCISTI, Theodor #general

Ury Link <uryl@...>
 

I am seeking out information about the family ZLOCISTI. Mr Theodor ZLOCISTI was a cousin of my grandmother Johana LEVY-BRUNNECK. The only think that I know about him is an article in the Encyclopedia Judaica. He was born in 1874 in Borchestowa, East Prussia and died 1943 in Haifa, Israel. I have made contact with the Haifa municpality but without results until now. I don't know if he is a cousin >from father's or mother's side of my grandmother and I want to know this if I can. This is the article in the Encyclopedia Judaica that I found: (MODERATOR'S NOTE: We have summarized the article to avoid copywrite infringement.)


ZLOCISTI, THEODOR (1874-1943), physician and one of the first German
Zionists. Born in Borchestowa, East Prussia, studied medicine at
the University of Berlin and graduated in 1900. He practiced first in Berlin then in Israel. During World War I he was with Red Cross Mission & hospital in Constantinople. In Tel Aviv he was a member of the city
council. He played a leading role in the Zionist movement in Germany; in 1893 he was the secretary of the Young Israel Society in Berlin and had an exchange of correspondence with Herzl; in 1895 he became one of the founders of the first Zionist students' society;
in Germany.
He had interest in East European Jewry and in Yiddish literature, and in Aus einer stillen Welt, Erzaehlungen aus der modernen
juedischen Literatur (1910), and published German translations of works by
Yiddish authors. He was also an author in his own right. Zlocisti also revived the writings of Moses Hess.

Location Gravestone indicates Social Class #general

Notes: The woman might have had no surviving family in Rotterdam at the
time of her death, or they were quite poor, because it seems that the
community burial society erected the gravestone at its expense.

Ruben Vis wrote me that in Rotterdam there was a custom to burry the poor
souls on the right side of the cemetery (right of the Cohanim path) and
those in better financial conditions on the left side of the path.

My ggrandmother ( Betje Dormits ) is burried on the right side so Jim you
were making the right assumptions!
Not even in life but also in death there is or ( people are making )
difference. Now, after WW2 this custom is left.


These apparently trivial details can indicate much

My question is :

1. Is this a widely spread burial-custom

2. Are there other customs, like burrying a non jewish partner on the side

Re: Hamburgo port #latinamerica

Carol Skydell <skydell@...>
 

In an interchange between Hector Mondrik and Mirta Dreiman ...Hector
mentions Hamburgo port and Mirta asks where to access these records...

These are National Archives films of the *embarkation* records >from the
German port of of Hamburg 1850-1934. The films have been copied by the
Mormons and Mirta can find them in the Los Angeles FHL on Santa Monica Blvd.

The L.A. center has the screwiest filing system of all...some things are
filed by FHL numbers and some by National Archives numbers. The Hamburg
Lists are filed by Nat. Archives numbers.

When you go there, just ask for the Hamburg Passenger Manifests....do not
tell them you are looking for arrivals into Argentina because they will
tell you that none exist. What some well intentioned volunteers haven't
figured out yet is that the embarkation records >from a port of emigration
are the arrival records into the port of immigration!
There should be an instruction booklet on how to utilize these records
since they are not indexed as we know soundex indexing....they are in rough
alphabetical order...all the A's lumped together...then all the B's etc.
There are two sets of indexes, direct and indirect Direct means that
sailed >from Hamburg into La Plata (the name of the port for B.A)...Indirect
means that there was a stop first along the way....

If you know the year of arrival into Argentina, you can skip all the
slogging through the indexes which are rough going... go right to the year
since the films are filed by year, with two or three months on each film.
On most films at the beginning you'll find an index card naming the ship
and the destination Next to the destination is a range of pages...Since
you know that the destination is La Plata, look only for the ships that
went to that port, note the pages and just scroll right to those pages.

Good luck
