Re: Seeking genealogical resources for Milicz (Militsch) SW Poland #poland

Joan A. Baronberg
 

Hello Moses,
I recently did a biography of a friend whose maiden surname is Militscher. She lived in that area, mainly Breslau, until in 1938 the family escaped from Breslau and made it to British Mandate Palestine. I never found documentation of exact roots of their family before Ostrowo, although I would assume they have some connection with the town from whom they drew their surname. I have further info. on Ostrowo. I would also suggest YIVO in NY. When they escaped, they left behind a grandmother and other relatives. I do not know where they are buried and if cemetery records for them have been found, but I could ask the family.Let me know if any of this has interest for you. Perhaps one other lead would be  Theresienstadt Martyrs Remembrance Association in Givat Chaim, Israel.


Re: passenger manifest missing/not indexed/ Australia #general

My greatgrandfather wrote on his application for naturalisation in Australia that he arrived on15th March 1888 on the ship Talavera. This did not seem to be correct. After much searching for dates when the Talavera arrived in Australia in the Australian historical newspapers Shipping News columns (a great source of information via the website of TROVE), I managed to deduce that he actually arrived on the 12th March 1889. But the ship left England on the 27th December 1888 and this is obviously why the mistake was made.

RAND from Lutowiska #galicia #general

Does anyone recognize someone on the attached picture dated circa 1930. It must be a gathering from the Rand family. My grandfather Schmuel Rand was born in Lutowiska December 14, 1883 from ELIYAOU DAVID RAND and ZISSEL EISENBERG born in LUTOWISKA. ELIYAOU DAVID RAND was married a second time. My grandfather was a Cohanim.

Re: Vetting family tree submissions to genealogy sites for data soundness #general

....... very often the data collected by commercial genealogical companies is useless. Therefore, I have not bothered to be a member of any of these companies. My experience regarding my own collection of genealogical data (based mostly on official documents) is rather irritating. My data has been leaked to two such companies without my permission, and one of them is keeping sending me (via a family member) "new matchings" or "supplements" which most of the time can be characterized as rubbish. I would advise anybody interested in collecting reliable genealogical data to treat with the utmost suspicion anything these commercial companies are responsible for.

I could not have said it better. Like Prof. Gath, i've found it a huge waste of time to look in those commercial databases. To pay them money as a subscriber is adding insult to injury. Reminds me of the old database saying 'garbage in, garbage out', and then paying for the garbage. Like Gath some outdated versions of my own family data has somehow—to my great dismay— ended up in them.

Before WWI many people from Galicia said they were from Austria. Consider the town of Rybotycze which is now in Poland.

None of the Genealogy sites check facts and even if one sends them corrections with all relevant sources, nothing is ever changed. Much of the rubbish emanating from these sites is due to transcribing errors.
One little tip that I use that others may find useful. In my tree/trees I use Upper Case  for every surname that I have sourced and am confident about.  Every other name remains suspect and in lower case, until I am happy and can show sources.
Happy hunting

Re: Moses & Rebecca Nathan approx. 1792 #unitedkingdom

Further to my earlier message. I have found Moshe ben Natan married to Rivka bat Yehuda Leib at the New Synagogue (then in Leadenhall Street) on 3 March 1816. No family names for either bride or groom were recorded.

Best regards

Re: Moses & Rebecca Nathan approx. 1792 #unitedkingdom

Hello,
Lewis Nathan married Hannah Cohen (daughter of Moses Cohen) at the New Synagogue on 15 Aug 1838. They lived at 3 Cobbs Yard. Both gave the same address but this was very usual as it saved a little on the registration fee for the marriage. It did not necessarily mean they were living together before the marriage but it didn't mean they weren't! The New synagogue moved in 1838 to Great St. Helen's Street.  
I cannot  trace a marriage of Moses and Rebecca but I will keep it on my list of things to look at and let you know if I find out any more.

Regards

Thank you everyone for your responses.   The majority of the responses said Partners.    Some said Domestic Partners not to be confused with a business partner.   Thanks again for your opinions.   Trudy Barch,   FL

Moses,
The CAHJP (Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People) in Jerusalem has 37 files from the archives of the Jewish community of Militsch (Milicz). However, as far as I can tell from the inventory, BM&D records are not included. I think there are membership lists included in some of the files.
See: http://cahjp.nli.org.il/search-holdings
and search for Militsch

I hope this helps,

Project Gutenberg Blocked By ISPs in Italy #announcements #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

 

 

Project Gutenberg is the world’s oldest digital library. It has been blocked by ISPs in Italy under the orders of the Court of Rome. The platform, which focuses on public domain books, appears to have been erroneously labeled a pirate site in an action targeting 28 domains and several Telegram channels.  The site has been rendered inaccessible by ISPs in Italy under the instructions of the Public Prosecutor at the Court of Rome.

 

The seizure/blocking notice states that all of the targeted domains “distributed, transmitted and disseminated in pdf format, magazines, newspapers and books (property protected by copyright) after having illegally acquired numerous computer files with their content, communicating them to the public, [and] entering them into a system of communication networks.”

 

The order from the Court of Rome was also sent to Google, a copy of which was acquired by TorrentFreak from the Lumen Database. The sender was Reccia Giovanni who is listed as a commander with the  Guardia di Finanza,(GdF) the Italian police unit tasked with financial crimes. Gutenberg.org is 15th on the list of allegedly infringing sites.  According to its transparency report, Google has received requests to have 1,110 URLs from Gutenberg.org deleted from its search results. The company took “no action” for 85.9% and marked the remaining 14.1% as duplicate requests, for which it also did nothing.

 

Project Gutenberg was founded in 1971 includes 62,000 books  with a focus on titles that entered the public domain after their copyrights expired.  Everything from Project Gutenberg is completely without cost to readers  in the United States because most are not protected by U.S. copyright law, usually because their copyrights have expired. They may not be free of copyright in other countries. It is best for readers to check copyright terms of their countries before downloading or redistributing their eBooks. They also have a number of copyrighted titles, for which the copyright holder has given permission for unlimited non-commercial worldwide use.  Project Gutenberg eBooks require no special apps to read, just the regular Web browsers or eBook readers that are included with computers and mobile devices

 

The website is: https://www.gutenberg.org/  The block it’s not anything on the Gutenberg.org servers or associated infrastructure and is applied by the Italian authorities, perhaps only in Rome.  Project Gutenberg operates wholly from the United States.

Re: Moses & Rebecca Nathan approx. 1792 #unitedkingdom

Hello Ron,

The marriage of Lewis and Hannah was recorded in the marriage register of the New Synagogue. According to census records, Lewis was born in 1815/16 in Christchurch, Spitalfields.

I have a spreadsheet version of the NS marriage records which can be easier to use than the database on SynagogueScribes. Both contain the same information.

I have come across the following record from 1816:  Moshe ben Nathan married Rebqeh bat Yehuda-Leib (ref. NSM 574). There are no other details, not even a specific date.

This marriage would certainly appear to be that of Lewis's parents. He was named after his mother's father (Yehuda-Leib) and he named his first son Nathan (b. 1841) after his paternal grandfather. 

Regards,

Justin Levy
