Coats of arms of cities (gorods) in the Pale of Settlement #lithuania

Peggy Freedman <peggyf@...>
 

I do not know of the book, but the towns in Lithuania usually display
their Coats of Arms on their websites. All the ones that I've looked
for have also been on Wikipedia.

published in black ink in about 1843. Other towns in the Belarus area were
Minsk, Bobruisk, Nesvizh, Dokshitz, Vileika, Pinsk, Disna, for example, but
there were no small towns or shtetls.>

Question: What are the title, author and publication date of this book?

Any help will be sincerely appreciated!

Orel Girsh Greenblatt #lithuania

"Studied at Pershai >from his father" sounds like a mistranslation of the
list-maker's shorthand for "Orel wasn't present for the listing, but his
father informed me that Orel was in school at Pershai."

Any other possibilities?

Yours,

Searching for my grandmother's sister- FELDMAN #france

Susan J. Eansor
 

My grandmother Tillie (Taube) FISHMAN noted on several border crossing
cards that she had a sister Zena FELDMAN who lived at 9 Passage St Bernard,
Paris (circa 1911).

I have never been able to find any record of Zena. Perhaps someone on
this list could help?

New information to be found in the Hungarian databases #romania

SFeuerstein <ethnoca@...>
 

I am happy to announce that new additions to the Hungarian databases
include a lot of new data >from communities that may be of interest
to some members of ROM-SIG. Most of the material is >from Bihor county:
Sacueni, Salard, Salonta, Beius, Targusor, Valea lui Mihai, and more.
Plus Carei >from Satu Mare and Crasna >from Salaj. This is not the full
list, you will find the rest in the Intro page of the Hungarian databases.

A particularly interesting addition is the extract >from the Chevra
Kadisha of the Velenta cemetery in Oradea, the 1939 volume, chock
full of extra information about family members, relationships, etc.
There are two more volumes being worked on. The transcription is
parallel to the Velenta cemetery project, which also includes the
planned photographing of all the tombstones. It is an expensive
undertaking and I urge anyone interested in this to contribute.
The project is headed by Roger Adler, please specify these details
on the donation page.

Family "Chalice" #general

Dorann Cafaro <dorann.cafaro@...>
 

I am hoping someone will be able to help us better understand a family cup or
chalice that apparently came down through the female side of the family and was
referred to as a "female chalice". This was used at my Aunt's wedding then passed
to her daughter and it has initials on it which seem to refer to marriages. I was
not raised in the Jewish traditions and would love to better understand this item
in context of my genealogy work of my father's family.

Thank you.

Hi all,
Can anyone please tell me what are the original sources for the
genealogy of the ReMA, Rabbi Moses ISSERLES (1520-1572)?
There is a lot on the internet that cannot possibly be true, such as the
grandfather of his wife Golda (who is listed as having died at age 20
with 6 children) being born twenty years after the ReMA died.
Thank you.

LESSIG of Dorna Vatra #romania

sharon yampell
 

Hermann LESSIG was the younger brother of my great grandfather Ruben LESSIG
He was born on Jul 02,1887 in Dorna Vatra. My great grandfather paid for him
to come to Philadelphia and he arrived on Oct 07,1907, under the name of
Hermann LESSIG.

I cannot find any records of him staying in Philadelphia, so I presume he
went back to Romania. I cannot find any records of him marrying nor can I
find records of him dying. I am looking for any information on him so I can
see if there were any descendants

I am also looking for marriage and death records for my great great
grandparents, Lena (or Lea)and Chaim LESSIG. There is a rumor that there
may have been a sister as well...
