GerSIG Day is almost here! #germany

Jeanette R Rosenberg OBE
 

Dear GerSIG members

We're almost there! Tomorrow is our day! We will have a fun packed
day of GerSIG programming >from early (8.15am) through to mid
afternoon. All the Germany content, including the GerSIG Luncheon
with our invited Guest Speaker, Dr Yochai Ben=3DGhedalia >from CAHJP,
will take place in a room called RUTH.

The high point of today for me was definitely the annual JewishGen
update. We heard about all the new work behind the scenes at
JewishGen which will help us find more information about our families.
We heard also that our All Germany database was updated with further
records, as per Roger Lustig's recent email.

I will report back on the GerSIG business meeting after tomorrow, but
suffice to say we will have all the usual features and reports from
the directors.

I will make this email shorter than usual, so I can be well-rested for our
day.

Meantime, here is the agenda for our business meeting:

1.Introductions
2.Invited Guest Speaker - Dr Yochai ben Ghedalia
3.Website Update - Arthur Obermayer
4.Obermayer German Jewish History Awards Update - Arthur Obermayer
5.Discussion List & Moderation Update - John Lowens
6.Data Projects Update - Roger Lustig
7. Volunteering to help new GerSIG Projects - Nancy Adelson
8.1933 German Jews Database - Peter Lande'
9.German National Library - Fritz Neubauer
10.GerSIG Links to DNA Testing - Rachel Unkefer & Janet Billstein Akaha
11.GerSIG in the UK - Jeanette Rosenberg
12.Various other updates & Announcements & Any Other Business

Transcribers wanted: Lissa census. It's easy! #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Dear all:

In 1793, Lissa/Leszno, on the western edge of the former Posen Province,
became Prussian in the 2nd Partition of Poland. 4 years later, new
regulations demanded that Jews in the new provinces adopt a surname.

There is little evidence that such surname adoption actually occurred
throughout South Prussia and New East Prussia. The Lissa town
records--now on line--contain several lists that plainly show that the
local Jews did indeed take--and keep--surnames, and that they did so
around 1798.

The biggest prize in this collection is a complete census of the Jews of
Lissa, taken in 1806-7. It has over 3,600 entries and lists everyone,
young and old. Even better: its written mainly in a nice, round Latin
script that many of us will have no trouble reading.
http://tinyurl.com/LissaThumbs gets you to a page of thumbnail images.
Click on the 2nd one >from the right in the top row to see the first page
of the census. For further enlargement, click on the "enlarge" icon to
get a full-sized, downloadable scan.

There are about 100 pages to transcribe. Who wants to do a few? Or even
just one? All collaboration is welcome. This will go into both the
Germany Database and JRI-Poland.

Just email me at this address.

Thanks in advance,

Roger Lustig Princeton, NJ research coordinator, GerSIG and Prussian
Poland area coordinator, JRI-Poland

R'yisrael Nachman ben Yosef of Ostrag-Mazkeret Legdolei Ostrog #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

In the book "Mazkeret LeGdolei Ostraha" there appear two Yisrael
Nachman ben Yosef (pp.222 and 277). The author believes that the
two above people may be one and the same.

I have an ancestor R' Yisrael ben Yosef of Ostraha, who seems to
fit the bill as the same as the two entries in the above book.

Are there any descendants of the two (or one) above and have any
information as to this person's family name (which does not appear
in the articles). We have in our family a presumption that our
Yisrael ben Yosef's name was ROSENBAUM.

TIA

Connection to Nobel Prize winner Dr. Paul EHRLICH? #dna

Scott Ehrlich <scott@...>
 

As an EHRLICH (my father's paternal side), with my dad's father
(originally >from Stanislov, Lviv, Ukraine), having also been a medical
doctor >from their hometown, who passed the medical boards here in the
US after the family arrived, actively followed Nobel Prize winning Dr.
Paul EHRLICH.

Yes, there is a great distance between where Paul's family is >from and
mine, but it is not impractical for a biologically-connected relative
to have lived there as well.

Does anyone know if any biological family member of his has tested?
If not, what is the best way to reach out to them to try and get
someone to test? Having conducted a Y-DNA test myself via Family Tree
DNA, I'd love to find a way to get a living male EHRLICH >from his
family (3rd cousin, doesn't matter, so long as the Ehrlich line
remains intact to a common ancestor) to test.

Ancestry no longer does Y DNA, and while 23andme does, it would not
help me isolate the result to my paternal line, where FTDNA would, and
23andme permits anonymous testers - I may never know who they are.

Thanks for leads and ideas.

Nicholas Winton #austria-czech

mbeer@...
 

My sister and me were almost rescued by Mr. Winton in 1939.
My sister was 5 - I was 10 years old at that time.
We did not join Mr. Wintons children; we were sent to Ghetto Theresienstadt
where we spent almost three years. We were due to go to Poland - to
Auschwitz a few times,
but stayed in Theresienstadt and survived.
Our mother died in Israel when she was almost 85 years old. I am 86 ,
my sister is 81 years old.
We have children, grandchildren, I have two greatgranddaughters.
All of us live in Israel in the land of our forefathers,
Maud Michal Beer nee Stecklmacher.

I would like to say a big thank you to the many people who offered
advice regarding Family Tree software!
I appreciate your experience and expertise. Of course there were
several suggestions. Reunion, I Family and Family Tree Maker along
with several free offerings on various websites were the main ones.

Thank you sincerely,
