Glückel of Hameln: Characterizing early modern Germany #germany

Michael Rubin
 

Hello friends - one silver lining of our current situation is the many virtual classes taking place online.  I'm bringing to your attention one such offering focusing on the milieu of Glückel of Hameln being offered by a historian of that period, over three Tuesday evenings, starting May 5th. Many of us who are lucky enough to find records back to that period are, nevertheless, left imagining what life was really like.  This short course can help.  

Reading Glikl:  Life Stories from a 17th-Century Jewish Working Mother
 
Glikl was one of the first women to write about the Jewish experience and provides a unique glimpse into European Jewish life around 1691. The book, originally written in Yiddish, has a new translation, published recently.   The class will be an intellectual book club of sorts, with participants reading some of the book prior to each meeting. Rachel Greenblatt will help to contextualize the information and further illustrate what else was going on in the world to give the writer that perspective.. Click here to register .  https://vilnashul.org/events/event/glikl-deconstructing-the-book
Note that the event takes place in the late afternoon Eastern US time (EDT).

When: May 5, 12, 19
Where: Register online for Zoom link.

Origin of Connection between Tipermas, Typermas, and Typermass families. They came to the US mostly from the Bialystok region of Poland #poland

Emily Tipermas
 

My husband's last name is Tipermas. His grandfather Morris came to the US from Bialystok. His grandfather left Bialystok and went to Israel where we think he died in 1911. We'd like to know how we may be related to the Typermass family that settled in NYC. Any info would be great to receive. Likewise, we're happy to share our info with others.

Tiszaeszlar Trial #hungary

Ivy Gray-Klein
 

I am trying to connect with other descendants of those wrongly accused in the Tiszaeszlar blood libel trial in 1882-1883, or anyone who has connections to this region.
 
My great-great-grandfather, Ignac Klein, and his father-in-law, Lazar Weisztein/Weisstein, were among the accused. 
 
Ignac Klein (b. 1843, Hajudnanas) was the son of Samuel Klein and Zuzsanna/Susanna Scharcz/Schwartz. 
 
Ignac was married to Eszter Weisztein (b. 1867, Tiszaeszlar/Tiszalok) to Lazar Weiszstein and Hani Jung. I believe Lazar may have been from Kisvarda and Hani from Saros. 
 
Thank you.

Re: Does anyone recognize this town name? #russia

Sally Bruckheimer
 

Like most town names, Rosolovitz brings up a whole list of 'sounds like' names in the Jewishgen Gazeteer. I highly recommend that you look at that.
 
But I also need to tell you that a death certificate is not a wonderful source of information on an immigrants birth. If the kids were born in the US, they might not remember right. And the informant might be a grandchild or the neighbor.
 
But we work from what we have. I once spent 2 years looking for somebody in St. Louis, until I found them in NYC.

Hi Steven.

As mentioned in my email, I am beginning to find Davids in North America, writ large, including Canada. I will find the Manifest for entry into Halifax or some other Canada-Nova Scotia Port. This is dependent on the Ship leaving England.

My best wishes to all of you in Israel!!

Your possible relative, Julien David

I will continue correspondence privately.

Another thing, I forgot to ask – does the census point Rachel mother name and Michael parents' names? I cannot open the file you attached.
