Genealo-J, publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of France,
Issue 119, Fall 2014 has just been published

Bernard Lyon-Caen begins a series of study of several interconnected Jewish
families famous in the fields of furniture, advertisement and radio namely
Chouchan, Levitan, Bleustein and others. The first paper deals with the Chouchan
family. This surname is supposed to come >from the Hebrew word Shoushan, the rose,
and has many orthographic variants >from Szuszan in Poland to Bensoussan in North
Africa. The present Chouchan family originates >from Grodno, on the Niemen river in
Lithuania, and successively in Poland, USSR and Byelorussia. Most of them left
Grodno for France between 1890 and 1914 and almost all of them became furniture
dealers : their shops were often competing in the same streets ! Some of these
firms, such as Galerie Barbes, have reached an international fame.

Pascal Faustini, who is a known specialist of Lorraine and Metz, focuses this time
on Morocco and the family Harrosch, Harroch, Haroche. Genealogical research in
Morocco is difficult since official records are only available since 1912. The name
Harrosch derives >from the Hebrew ha-rosh (the head) and is found in the 15th
century in Spain and later many times in cemeteries and documents in several
Moroccan cities. A whole lineage of rabbis can be followed first to a R. Joseph ben
Isaac Harrosch born ca. 1690. He is also the ancestor of my friend Serge Harroche,
who obtained the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2012 and whose genealogy was totally
unknown. The family tradition tells that the Harrosch came >from Spain. Faustini
found a very famous scholar Ascher ben Jehiel, born in Germany around 1250 who
travelled to Cologne, Savoy, Provence, Barcelone and finally settled in Toledo
where he died in 1328. He was nicknamed Ha-Rosh and the nickname Aros is found
several times in Spain before the expulsion 0f 1492. Faustini concludes that the
present Harrosch and Haroche families are descendents of Ascher b. Jehiel.

In Anne-Marie Fribourg’s family, a mysterious “Ovar uncle” was mentioned, who was
said to come “>from elsewhere and >from no country”. An article traces Howard
Dieudonne Loria's route (1866-1947). Born in Liverpool, French in Egypt; an orphan
at 16 in Alexandria, he became a graduate of the Ecole Centrale des Arts et
Manufactures of Paris and a plant manager at Orchamps in the French Jura.

Vital recording for Tunisians was established in 1886 only. The resulting registers
have been available at the Center for French Diplomatic Archives in La Courneuve
for a few years.Yet using them was very difficult due to their fragmentation and
the complete lack of decennial charts. 25 members of the CGJ have been working for
18 months to allow survey and research of these vital records. The resulting
database, called Becane, now available on our Website, is a primary tool for the
genealogy of Tunisian Jews. Thierry Samama details this database.

Since its official foundation in 1753 the Jewish community in Luneville (Lorraine)
has been successively made up >from four kinds of migrants; inhabitants >from Metz
and Alsace, inhabitants >from “Alsace-Lorraine” who wished to remain French citizens
after 1871, migrants >from Eastern Europe, and refugees >from Algeria in 1962 – most
of them coming >from the M'zab (north of Sahara). Françoise Job shows that the
melting pot eventually worked : ashkenaz-sefarad marriages took place.

from a diary held by Edgard See between November 1, 1942 and October 12, 1943 - the
day before his arrest and his deportation - Michele Feldman traces back her
grandfather's life in Paris during the war. She also analyzes his family tree and
finds an ancestor Schlomo See born in Bergheim (Alsace) around 1718. Among his
descendents, she quotes Reissel See, an heroine during the French Revolution,
Camille See, a politician who obtained the right for secondary education for girls,
and Leopold See, the first Jew to reach the rank of general in the French Army.

Pierrette Ouazana studies a vital record >from Mascara, Algeria, 1856. It deals with
the wedding of Nessim Darmon with Rebecca bent Ouazana. She explains how is a
record to be read, what information can it bring forward about the family, and how
a careful study of a record can throw light on entangled family links.

On his way >from the Tafilalet,Morocco, to the Holy Land, the revered Rabbi Yaakov
Abehsera passed away in Damanhur, Egypt in 1880. He was the most famous rabbi of
this Moroccan rabbinical dynasty, described by Mathilde Tagger. His works and
descendants are well known. Nevertheless there exist several versions explaining
the origin of his surname Abehsera (man with a mat, mat maker, sitting on a mat)
but only one version points out at Jubar near Damascus, Syria as the origin of the
family. Which is to be trusted ?

As mentioned in this issue of our Journal, the 4 volumes of the Proceedings of the
2012 Paris International Conference on Jewish Genealogy organized by the CGJ are
now available. They can be obtained in English or in French, in colors or in black
& white or downloaded >from the website. See our website www.genealoj.org for

As we approach the High Holidays, one may find a number of videos and other visual
manifestations of local synagogues where genealogists may locate the religious
institutions their ancestors attended. These may including those which have
closed.

One of these that has closed is the Blackpool (UK) United Hebrew Congregation which
was founded in 1898 (merged in 1907 with another synagogue) and whose poignant last
service on May 13, 1912, is found in the following four part video series:

Sunday, September 21 at 1:30PM
University Synagogue 11960 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles 90049

A Steve-Morse-a-thon: two lectures sure to get you enlightened and
energized about your own research by the inventor of the One-Step Search Engine:

"One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools"

The One-Step website started out as an aid for finding passengers in
the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterwards it was expanded to help
with searching in the 1930 census. Over the years it has continued to
evolve and today includes about 200 web-based tools divided into 16
separate categories ranging >from genealogical searches to astronomical
calculations to last-minute bidding on e-bay. This presentation,
always being updated, will describe the range of tools available and
give the highlights of each one.

followed by.... "Case Study: Genealogy of Renee Kaufman"

This lecture presents a case study using the One-Step Webpages as well
as other websites to develop a family history. It illustrates how,
with a minimal amount of initial information, an entire genealogy can
be obtained. It also shows how to obtain records in spite of name
misspellings, and how to avoid accepting wrong information.

SELIGMAN in Gau-Algesheim, Hesse Darmstadt > UK and USA circa 1850 #germany

Amy B Cohen
 

Hello,

I am trying to locate records for my great-great grandfather
Bernard SELIGMAN and his family. He was born in Gau Algeshiem, Hesse
Darmstadt in 1837. His brother Sigismund was born in 1830 or so, and
his brother Adolph was born in about 1843. There was also a brother
James born in the 1850s.

All four SELIGMAN brothers emigrated >from Germany between 1849
and 1870 or so---the first three to the US, the last to England. I
have many records of them in the US and UK, but no German records.

I also found two references on ancestry.com to an August SELIGMANN,
born in Gau Algesheim to Moritz SELIGMAN and Barbara SCHOENFELD in
1841. A death record for Adolph that I found on familysearch.org
states that his father's name was Morris, so I think that August
may have been another brother.

I have written to the town office in Gau-Algesheim, but received no
response. Is there any other place I should be looking? I'd
appreciate any suggestions. Thank you,

Amy Cohen, East Longmeadow, Massachusetts, USA amybesscohen@gmail.com

As we approach the High Holidays, one may find a number of videos and other visual manifestations
of local synagogues where genealogists may locate the religious institutions their ancestors attended.
These may including those which have closed.

One of these that has closed is the Blackpool (UK) United Hebrew Congregation which was founded
in 1898 (merged in 1907 with another synagogue) and whose poignant last service on May 13, 1912,
is found in the following four part video series:

Issue 119 of Genealo-J is published #germany

Georges Graner
 

Genealo-J, publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of France,
Issue 119, Fall 2014 has just been published

[It includes articles on families in Alsace and Lorraine.]

Since its official foundation in 1753 the Jewish community in Luneville
(Lorraine) has been successively made up >from four kinds of migrants;
inhabitants >from Metz and Alsace, inhabitants >from “Alsace-Lorraine” who
wished to remain French citizens after 1871, migrants >from Eastern
Europe, and refugees >from Algeria in 1962 – most of them coming >from the
M'zab (north of Sahara). Françoise Job shows that the melting pot
eventually worked : ashkenaz-sefarad marriages took place.

from a diary held by Edgard See between November 1, 1942 and October
12, 1943 - the day before his arrest and his deportation - Michele
Feldman traces back her grandfather's life in Paris during the war. She
also analyzes his family tree and finds an ancestor Schlomo See born in
Bergheim (Alsace) around 1718. Among his descendents, she quotes Reissel
See, an heroine during the French Revolution, Camille See, a politician
who obtained the right for secondary education for girls, and Leopold
See, the first Jew to reach the rank of general in the French Army.

Pascal Faustini, who is a known specialist of Lorraine and Metz, focuses
this time on Morocco and the family Harrosch, Harroch, Haroche.
Genealogical research in Morocco is difficult since official records are
only available since 1912. The name Harrosch derives >from the Hebrew
ha-rosh (the head) and is found in the 15th century in Spain and later
many times in cemeteries and documents in several Moroccan cities. A
whole lineage of rabbis can be followed first to a R. Joseph ben Isaac
Harrosch born ca. 1690. He is also the ancestor of my friend Serge
Harroche, who obtained the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2012 and whose
genealogy was totally unknown. The family tradition tells that the
Harrosch came >from Spain. Faustini found a very famous scholar Ascher
ben Jehiel, born in Germany around 1250 who travelled to Cologne, Savoy,
Provence, Barcelone and finally settled in Toledo where he died in 1328.
He was nicknamed Ha-Rosh and the nickname Aros is found several times in
Spain before the expulsion 0f 1492. Faustini concludes that the present
Harrosch and Haroche families are descendents of Ascher b. Jehiel.

Bernard Lyon-Caen begins a series of study of several interconnected
Jewish families famous in the fields of furniture, advertisement and
radio namely Chouchan, Levitan, Bleustein and others. The first paper
deals with the Chouchan family. This surname is supposed to come >from
the Hebrew word Shoushan, the rose, and has many orthographic variants
from Szuszan in Poland to Bensoussan in North Africa. The present
Chouchan family originates >from Grodno, on the Niemen river in
Lithuania, and successively in Poland, USSR and Byelorussia. Most of
them left Grodno for France between 1890 and 1914 and almost all of them
became furniture dealers : their shops were often competing in the same
streets ! Some of these firms, such as Galerie Barbes, have reached an
international fame.

The 4 volumes of the Proceedings of the 2012 Paris International
Conference on Jewish Genealogy organized by the CGJ are now available.
They can be obtained in English or in French, in colors or in black &
white or downloaded >from the website. See our website:
www.genealoj.org for details.

In Anne-Marie Fribourg’s family, a mysterious “Ovar uncle” was
mentioned, who was said to come “>from elsewhere and >from no country”. An
article traces Howard Dieudonne Loria's route (1866-1947). Born in
Liverpool, French in Egypt; an orphan at 16 in Alexandria, he became a
graduate of the Ecole Centrale des Arts et Manufactures of Paris and a
plant manager at Orchamps in the French Jura.

Vital recording for Tunisians was established in 1886 only. The
resulting registers have been available at the Center for French
Diplomatic Archives in La Courneuve for a few years.Yet using them was
very difficult due to their fragmentation and the complete lack of
decennial charts. 25 members of the CGJ have been working for 18 months
to allow survey and research of these vital records. The resulting
database, called Becane, now available on our Website, is a primary tool
for the genealogy of Tunisian Jews. Thierry Samama details this database.

Pierrette Ouazana studies a vital record >from Mascara, Algeria, 1856. It
deals with the wedding of Nessim Darmon with Rebecca bent Ouazana. She
explains how is a record to be read, what information can it bring
forward about the family, and how a careful study of a record can throw
light on entangled family links.

On his way >from the Tafilalet,Morocco, to the Holy Land, the revered
Rabbi Yaakov Abehsera passed away in Damanhur, Egypt in 1880. He was the
most famous rabbi of this Moroccan rabbinical dynasty, described by
Mathilde Tagger. His works and descendants are well known. Nevertheless
there exist several versions explaining the origin of his surname
Abehsera (man with a mat, mat maker, sitting on a mat) but only one
version points out at Jubar near Damascus, Syria as the origin of the
family. Which is to be trusted ?
