Benjamin ? DVIR, Dagda/Daugavpils/Dinsk #latvia

Bonnie Keyser <bonkey458@...>
 

I have searched available data bases (1897 census, Raduratski, sadly
incomplete Usdine) without result. I am searching for Benjamin and
Esta-Leah DVIR, probably born in 1840's, issue: Cherna (unsure of this
name, immigrated to Palestine c. 1920), Faigele, Malke, Beile, Slava.
All daughters with exception immigrated to U.S. and are documented.
Am I correct in assuming that Latvian records >from this period are
very incomplete?

MODERATOR NOTE: Only family names you are searching (e.g., DVIR above)
should be typed in all uppercase letters. Everything else, including
given names and place names, should be in normal mixed upper and lower
case. This is so family names stand out when a reader quickly scans a
post or digest.

"Spock" symbol in Hassid Judaism #poland

ava rosenblum
 

Hello,

I was looking at an old family photo today of my paternal
grandmother's family (Moshie Garner) back in Sgierz, Poland in about
1905. My great-grandfather has his hand gently resting in his lap,
and I notice that his fingers are in the "Spock" position that
Leonard Nimoy created >from his Hassidic background.

Does that indicate that he may have been a clergyman? Or do you
suppose any Hassidic Jew may have done that for good luck? I don't
know what the occasion was, but it had to be shortly before my
grandmother left Poland.

Thanks,

German newspapers online at Staatsbibliothek of Berlin, including Berliner Tageblatt #germany

Judith Elam
 

In a prior posting I mentioned how I had found many Berlin relatives,
searching by name on the European Library site.
http://www.theeuropeanlibrary.org/tel4/newspapers. However, this site is
not always reliable, since it often doesn't work properly, is painfully
slow, and also misses some searches. If I am unsuccessful on this site, I
then try searching on the Staatsbibliothek of Berlin's site.
http://zefys.staatsbibliothek-berlin.de/list/. They have an extensive list
of newspapers, including German newspapers in foreign countries! They are
not searchable by name, just by date, but I have found several BMD notices
which I was unable to find on the European Library site. I have found it
particularly useful when searching for BMD notices for Berlin, using
Berliner Tageblatt. If I know the date of death, for example, I start
searching two days later, since burial occurs usually within 1 - 4 days of
death. Birth notices usually appear starting the next day, and up to one
week after the birth. Some of the later ones have the name of the child
vertically on the left side of the notice. But if no name is given, then
use the date to search by name and birth year (and month) on other sites,
such as Ancestry.com., the Holocaust sites, etc. Marriage notices can be up
to several weeks or even a couple of months later. And engagement notices
can be weeks or even a few months ahead of the wedding, so these will
require a lot of searching. The BMD and engagement notices are listed under
Familien Anzeigen or Familien Nachrichten. I should point out there are
many editions which are missing, which explains why I cannot find a notice
on either site! Here is the link to search by date. It also shows the range
of years which are searchable for each newspaper.

Julius MAIER from Kaiserslautern & Weinhein #germany

Linda Berkowitz
 

I am searching for information on Julius MAIER, born 14 October 1873 in
Kaiserslautern to Moritz MAIER and Magdalena WEIL MAIER. His twin
brother, Isidore, died at 16 days. The family moved to the US and lived
in Martinsburg, WV for several years before returning to Mannheim in 1885.

I know that Julius married a nonJew, Gertrude MUNCH, born in Potsdam,
and she died in in 1937 in Mannheim. I also know that Juliue and
Gertrude had a son, Hans. >from family stories I heard that Hans
fought as a partisan but I have no proof of this. I was told that Hans
survived the war, but I have not found any trace of him. I know also,
that Julius lived in Mannheim and was deported on a transport to
Theriesenstadt, which he survived. After the war he lived in the county
nursing home in Weinhein >from 2 July 1945 until his death on 22
February 1959.

I have the Mannheim family registers so I have information >from those as
well as his marriage certificate to Gertude.

Any additional information would be welcome.

Ostrog research - mid-late 19th century #general

Yaron Pedhazur
 

Dear fellow researchers,

First I would like to thank all who responded to my previous query
on Ostrog documents.

I would like to share the results thus far: I understand 1795 census
is available. As to early 19th century, there is work going on, but
it is still not fully clear to me what can be available already online
or can be otherwise obtained without sending a researcher.

My next question is on research of the later part of the 19th century
and early 20th century. Miriam Weiner's website lists the following
Ostrog's documents existing in several archives:

In Kiev archives: Ostrog's census 1849
In Ostrog's museum: Ostrog's census 1850, 1858, 1864, 1886, 1893
In Rovno archives: Ostrog's census 1858 - 1869, 1922 - 1927
In Zhitomir archives: Ostrog's census 1865, 1868, 1874

Can anyone share on --

1. availability of these documents, and/or prior experience
researching these documents ?
2. prior experience researching Rovno archives and Ostrog museum ?
3. additional relevant documents not mentioned.

Thank you very much,
Yaron Pedhazur

ViewMate: Hebrew translation #general

Dear Friends -

I've posted to ViewMate a ketuba in Hebrew for which I need
a translation. It is on ViewMate at the following address:

http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=40589

The document is my grandparents' Ketuba. They were among the
early settlers in Metulla, Palestine and were married in
Metulla. I would appreciate a full translation and am
particularly interested in the exact date of the marriage in
Hebrew which will enable me to determine the civil date.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate

Thank you very much.
