Is there a way to get a look at one of the records in nthe Maramaros County Births >from the
SIG indexing project.

There is one which lists a man supposedly named "Herik" and I'd like to have a look myself.
(His son is Hersch, so that is out.)

1915 Diary of S. An-sky: A Russian Writer of the Eastern Front #galicia

Jan Meisels Allen
 

In reading a blog about World War l (Roads to the Great War), I came
across a book review about a recently published book that might be of
interest to those with Galician roots: 1915, Diary of S. An-sky: A Russian
Writer at the Eastern Front. The book is translated >from the Russian and
published by Indiana University Press. I have not yet read the book.

Some of us may recall the name of S. Ansky which is the pen name of
Shloyme Zanvil Rapoport (1863-1920) a Jewish writer and revolutionary
who was born in Chashniki, Belarus about 150 miles east of Vilnius,
Lithuania. Some may be familiar with his books the Dybbuk and The
Enemy at His Pleasure: A Journey Through the Jewish Pale of
Settlement During World War l.

S. An-sky kept a diary of the war years >from 1914 until his death. The
new book is a translation of the part of that diary that survived, 1
January to 8 March 1915 and 9 September to 10 October 1915. The
originals are in the Russian State Archives of Literature and Art in
Moscow. What he wrote about is when the tsarist soldiers invaded
Galicia and occupied the province of Gorlice-Tarnow. Nearly 58 percent
of the province's civil servants were Jewish. Those who stayed were
stripped of citizenship rights and the right to engage in business under
the laws of the Russian occupation. Through his diary the reader learns
of the hard living >from day-to-day especially for the Jewish population
who went >from having equal rights under the Austria-Hungary Empire to
no rights under Russian rule. The book gives the "civilian experience"
and a prelude to the Holocaust and discrimination in Eastern Europe.

The book, 1915, Diary of S. An-sky: A Russian Writer at the Eastern

Again, I have not yet read this new book (released March 28, 2016).

Re: How cadastral map could help me in my research? #galicia

Cadastral maps can show you where your family member lived in a town.
Sometimes you also need records to go with the map depending on the type
of map. But finding the house of your ancestor is interesting because you
can also find out who the neighbours were. You can find out if they lived in
the Jewish suburb or in the central (downtown) part of the town, or another
area. By following along on the map, one can imagine walking >from their
home to the synagogue for example. What houses and families do you pass
along the way or other features in the town - maybe the mill, maybe
something else. And if you were to make a journey today back to the shtetl,
you could possibly discover the original lot or even the house in some cases
by comparing the roads today with those on the old cadastral maps >from
the 1800's.

Hope this helps give some ideas.

Happy searching!

PERELBERG or PERLOWAGORA Rabbis #rabbinic

Jason Greenberg <jhgreenberg812@...>
 

I'm writing to see if I can find more information on a potential rabbi
ancestor. His name has appeared as both Dawid Aron PERLOWAGORA and
Aron Dawid PERELBERG. He would have been born (circa 1845) or lived in
Ciechanowiec, Jablonka Koscielna, and/or Zambrow.

I believe his wife's name to have been Alta Tauba PALGAN, and his
children would have included Rochla Leja (married Mendel MOROZOWICZ),
Alter Bentzion (also a rabbi and shochet, married Cypa BLUMERT), Chaje
(married FRIEDLAND), and Pesza Fejga (married Szaja ROZYNKIER).

I wrote to this community once before about this ancestor and received
a response, so thanks! But I recently discovered that the surname
might have been PERLOWAGORA instead of or in addition to PERELBERG, so
I'm writing again to see if there is any more information now that I
have this name.

Greetings!
David LEVI [ben Mordechai] (b. 1742- d.1801) lived in London. He was a
Hebrew grammarian and translator, and was the first to translate the
Haggadah into English (among other translations) in 1770.
In 1807 a Isaac [Yitzchak benTzvi] LEVI together with his partner
Chaim ben Sender re-published this Haggadah with some "corrections".
Does anyone happen to know if there is a connection between these two
LEVIs or whether the family names are merely coincidental?
Alternatively where can one find more information about their families??
Thanks so much!

Western Sephardim DNA Project #dna

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

I'm looking for potential participants to participate in our study of
Western Sephardi paternal DNA lineages. Thanks to a generous grant,
testing kits will be provided at no cost to the participants. Eligible
participants are those who are direct paternal line descendants of the
Western Sephardi community.

What is the Western Sephardi community? The Western Sephardim, were
arguably the original transnational people in the age of Imperialism
and Colonialism, transcending religious boundaries and empires.The
Western Sephardim include the communities of Amsterdam, London,
Livorno, Venice, Bordeaux and Southwest France, and their daughter
communities in the New World in Curacao, Suriname, and North America.
There were also Western Sephardim who ended up in the Ottoman Empire,
most notably in Izmir, Salonika, and Tunis.

Who is eligible? Anyone who is >from those communities of direct
paternal descent is eligible. For example, I am a part of the testing
cohort, representing the Vaz Lopes family of Bordeaux and Amsterdam.
As part of the testing, we will also need an accurate paternal
genealogy, with as much information as you can provide.

The goal of this project is to try and shed light on the origins of
the Western Sephardi community and to establish a strong dataset of
DNA results, grounded in strong archival research and results that
would lead to further intensive studies of Sephardim.

Please contact me if you are interested or know someone who might be
eligible. We aim to have a cohort of at least 50 men tested. I am
happy to answer any questions! Your privacy is protected and the
results of the study will be published.

Thanks for your interest!
