Anasisik or Anasishok is not Aniksht(Anyksciai). #yizkorbooks

Joel Alpert <ALPERT@...>
 

Joseph Rosin sent me the following clarification:

Anasisik or Anasishok is not Aniksht(Anyksciai).There were two Anasisik's
in Lithuania:One in the Rakishok (Rokiskis)district and one in the Trok
(Trakai) district.Both are called in Lithuanian Onuskis (pages 146 & 147 in
the Pinkas haKehiloth).

Diana,

According to the 1996 book Pinkas Hekelot Lita, by Levin and Rosin et al,
there is a town spelled Anyksciai, which is in Lithuanian, or in Russian:
Onikshty. There is a rather lengthy article on page 151 of the book,
which is in Hebrew. The book is published by Yad Vashem. Unfortunately
there is no English translation of the book available.

Neolog Jews #hungary

CASHEL3776@...
 

Ok, I'm finally going to go for it.
I have searched high and low and obviously in all the wrong places. Could
someone please explain "Neolog Jews" to me, in "Jewish for Dummies" terms
please. ; )

I have finally located some great books to help me understand the Jewish faith
and the daily life of the early Jew, especially for the emigrant. Still
haven't located one that has explained the dietary laws of the orthodoxy. Also
most of the books are slanted to the Russian or German Jewish emigrant, there
are little bits and pieces here and there. Especially wanted the women's role
and life.
Thanx,
Ley O'Connor

Although you probably know this, the Mormons have the birth, marriage
and death indexes AND the actual registers up to the early 1930s for
Jews in Vienna. What I do is find the record that interests me in the
index, and then ask Salt Lake to copy the register page - for 25 cents.

VISIT TO HUNGARY-3 #hungary

Leah Kraus <kraus@...>
 

Dear all,
- continuation -
On the morning of the last day in budapest, just before leaving, I felt
that I must find a hint about my young uncle who passed away 4 months
after liberation in hospital in budapest. With the encouragement of the
King's hotel (=pension...) manager ,with very low expectations, we went
to the orthodox chevra kadisha. The old manager looked at the document,
decided that only the "expert" ,the manager of the cemetery, can help.
after calling him (mr. Herzog) on the cellular phone we had to wait
half an hour. Meanwhile a secretary came in trying to help, to look in
the books, to find the address on the document etc. She , Mrs. Herzog,
was very empathic. With the other women in the office they found that
the address written on the document is the address of the hospital, and
that my young uncle arrived there straight >from camp. She looked for
telephone num. in case we'll not find the grave. As mr. Herzog arrived,
immediately he "made the diagnose": to look in Buda (where the hospital
locate), gave cemeteries to call and promised that if we'll not find,
he'll come back and will find it. Hearing my poor hungarian Mrs. Herzog
made the phone call. on the second cemetery she found it in the jewish
cemetery in Obuda quarter!!! all the office was moved. also those in the
cemetery on the other side of the phone. We rushed to the cemetery where
the book was still open "waiting" to us! This cemetery is not so large
and the wood is not so heavy, because also in the section of 1946 there
are graves >from later years. the men of the (father and son) took us to
look for it. of course we found a grave without gravestone, with weed
and wild roses, which we verified with the gravestones beside. Not have
to say what we felt to be the first one after 53 years... with duty to
arrange some sign of gravestone.
how the records look, on my last report.

Rosh Hashana Greetings #lithuania

Last night was Selichot. Therefore, our Jewish New Year is Upon us. 5759.
I look at that number and I see it represents a couple of things.---The age of
the earth?---add six zeros at the end 5,759,000,000--does that get us closer
to the scientific age of the earth. 5000 years: we are about to enter the
transition >from the 2nd to the 3rd Millennium of the common era---but what
took place at the transition >from the 3rd to the second millennium b.c.e.?
Avraham Avinu. No matter if you are secular Israeli, reform/progressive,
conservative, orthodox, hasidic, sephardic or ashkenazic, I want to wish all
my friends on the LitvakSIG digest---a happy, healthy, prosperous and
genealogically successful New Year.

Passing of fellow genealogist, Evan F. Linick #lithuania

Richard Hoffman <RHHOFFMAN@...>
 

All,

Today's Los Angeles Daily News brought sadness, as I saw an obituary for a
fellow genealogist, Evan F. LINICK, who passed away Sept 9, 1998. Evan
was a member of our discussion group and had attended the 18th Summer
Seminar held in Los Angeles this past July.

We met in my home prior to the seminar as he had found our connection
through the town of Tykocin, Poland and I believe that I found mention of
his ancestors in the Tykocin Historical Book, written by Alter Hofman.

He is survived by his wife Rochelle, children, Karen, Michael and Jody,
sister, Sharon Shepard; and grandchildren, Rebecca, Conor, Megan & Derek.

Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the JGSLA, Amnesty
International, ADL, Jewish Family Services of LA.

Re: Will the real Anasisek please stand up? #lithuania

Diana,

According to the 1996 book Pinkas Hekelot Lita, by Levin and Rosin et al,
there is a town spelled Anyksciai, which is in Lithuanian, or in Russian:
Onikshty. There is a rather lengthy article on page 151 of the book,
which is in Hebrew. The book is published by Yad Vashem. Unfortunately
there is no English translation of the book available.

Joel Alpert

I have been receiving the LitvakSIG Digests for a few months now, and
enjoy them very much. I would like to ask if anyone can absolutely
confirm whether the Yiddish name for the town my grandmother came
from, Anasisik, or Anashisik, province of Kovno)is really Anykst or Anysciai.
