Launch of Gesher Galicia's Przemysl Identification Project #austria-czech

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia is launching an extensive longer-term project to
identify 573 Jewish record books of unknown origin housed in the
Przemysl State Archive in Poland. Involved are index books of vital
records (births, deaths, marriages), including a few index books of
unspecified type, as well as some sets of community records. While the
dates and most of the record types relating to each register are
known, there is no information about their geographic origin. Most of
the books, though, are presumed to be >from towns in the former
Galicia. Identifying the town of origin of each book will undoubtedly
lead to interesting genealogical discoveries for Galician researchers.

These books are all subfiles of "File 69" - a set of unknown books -
of Fond 154 of the Przemysl State Archive. A list of these index books
can therefore be found in the "Inventories" section of the Gesher
Galicia website, within the section for "File 69" of Fond 154 of the
Przemysl archive, at:
https://www.geshergalicia.org/inventories/fond-154/ .

The project has been approved by the Polish State Archives, is being
managed by the project=E2=80=99s secretariat in Poland, and is being carrie=
d
out in cooperation with the Przemysl archive.

Gesher Galicia members now have an exclusive opportunity to
participate in the identification project, in this way advancing the
knowledge of the genealogical community. If you are not a member of
Gesher Galicia and wish to take part in the project, you are most
welcome to join, at: https://www.geshergalicia.org/membership/ .

New identifications of these presently unknown books will be announced
publicly, at regular intervals, and the information shared with the
Przemysl State Archive.

Further public information can be found on the Gesher Galicia website at:

Chuck Weinstein
 

The IAJGS 2020 San Diego Conference is delighted to announce that the

If you wish to be considered as a speaker for this important conference
on Jewish Genealogy, please go to our website at: www.iajgs2020.org and
read our Call for Proposals to begin the submission process. While
covering all the major Jewish Genealogy topics that you've come to rely
on the IAJGS conferences for, we will also be looking for proposed
presentations which focus on the following hot topics:

1) A "Beginners" track for those who have never attended an IAJGS
conference before and who may or may not consider themselves new to
Jewish genealogy.
2) A "DNA" track to help all of us become better acquainted with the
immense insight that DNA is adding to the field of genealogy.
3) A "Heritage" track to help provide cultural context that both
inspires and enhances our genealogical explorations.
4) A "Shoah" track specifically to honor the memory of those who were
lost in the calamity of World War II.
5) A "Military" track -- With the US Naval Base San Diego just a few
blocks >from our convention, we hope to offer sessions which will
recognize military angles to Jewish genealogy, both >from the USA and
the rest of the world.
6) A "Latin America" track – Recognizing San Diego's proximity to
Central and South America and the need to find and understand our
relatives who live or lived south of the border.

All other subjects related to Jewish Genealogy and Genealogy in general,
will, of course, be considered.

See our web page at www.iajgs2020.org for more information.

Write to speakerhelp@iajgs2020.org or program@iajgs2020.org for answers

Ish Horovitz #galicia

Inacio Steinhardt
 

Dear Carol,

I think that I can offer an explanation for Ish Horowitz.

Horowitz and Epstein were originally members of the Sephardi family
BENVENISTE >from Spain who moved to Central Europe. One branch
settled in the German town of Eppstein, in Hesse, the other to
Horovice in central Bohemia, now in Czech Republic. Each adopted
the name of the place as their surname.

The Benveniste of Spain were Levi's. Thus all legitimate Epstein and
Horovitz are Levi (>from the tribe of Levi). I say "legitimate", because
among Jews people have adopted surnames for a variety of reasons.
The first Benveniste to adopt the Horovitz surname choose to
identify themselves as ">from Horovitz" using a known Hebrew
formula "Ish Horovitz", meaning "man >from Horovitz" (ish means
man). As an example, Judas Iscariot, the disciple of Jesus, was >from
Cariot, Ish Cariot. Eventually the prefix Ish, >from Ish Horovitz, was
dropped remaining only Horovitz. But old documents still show Ish
Horovits. Thus, your husband, as a legitimate Horovitz, is a Levi...
and his origin is Sephardi.

Inacio

Re: Meaning of "Ish" #galicia

Shlomo Katz
 

Horwitz is the name of a town (Horovice, Czech Republic, 30 miles SW
of Praha). "Ish Horwitz" means "Man >from Horowitz." I, too, have
relatives who use the name Ish Horowitz.

The model for this is in the Mishnah Tractate Avot, chapter 1, where
there is a reference to Yose Ish Yerushalayim / Man >from Jerusalem.

JGSCT November 2019 Program

gkr
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Connecticut hosts Stephen Denker on Sunday, November 17, 2019, at 1:30 pm, at Temple Sinai, 41 West Hartford Rd, Newington.  The topic of the presentation is " How to Design and Construct a Family History Book Entirely by Yourself ".

The presentation covers, in detail, how to design and construct a book for self-publishing, including aesthetic considerations and organization of subject matter. Included will be ways to prepare, repair and enhance documents, and other research materials for publication, including specific examples to illustrate techniques and options. One major problem I will treat is putting together a book that contains records (e.g., Censuses and Ship Manifests) that are much too large to fit onto one-page

Stephen Denker and his wife have been collaboratively researching their family histories since 1999. Together they have self-published five hard-cover family history and genealogy books (exceeding 800 pages) entirely by themselves. In 2007, they spent two weeks in Havana, Cuba, doing research and visiting where his family lived in the 1920s. They updated the 1400 burial records of the United Hebrew Congregation Jewish Cemetery and took a complete set of gravestone photographs that they placed on JewishGen Online World Burial Registry (JOWBR).
 
The program is free and open to the public. For additional information, visit www.jgsct.org.

Re: Finding a Genealogist

Renée K. Carl
 

There are a number of professional genealogists who regularly speak at IAJGS, and at other conferences.
Many professional genealogists, Jewish or not, will have a listing at the Association of Professional Genealogists, APGEN.org. There are also some pages there that give you information on what to look for when hiring a professional. Those who have become certified (think board certification, like a doctor), can be found listed at https://bcgcertification.org.
Another good place to ask is your local Jewish Genealogy Society (JGS)

I am researching my wife's family and would like some help on parts of the family tree.

My wife's grandmother, Nentzia (Anna) LOWENTHAL was the daughter of Solomon LOWENTHAL and Getel (Lena) BLIER.  She was born in 1886 in Brzesko, Poland, and died in 1947 in Pittsburgh, PA.  Her brother was Abraham LOWENTHAL, born in 1875 in Brzesko and died in 1964 in Queens, NY.  Her sister was Chaya LOWENTHAL, who married Moses STERN, son of Leon STERN.  Leon had six children and his brother Avroham had four children.

Chaya and Moses had seven children, whom we think were also born in Poland.  Solomon (Seymour), born in 1898, married Channa (Anna) TOVEL.  Harry, born in 1902 and died in 1974 in Spring Valley, NY, married Anna MILLER of Pennsylvania.  Sarah, born sometime after then, married Harry BAUM.  Leon, born in 1910 and died in 2003 in Spring Valley, married Sylvia MILLMAN.  Genya, born in 1911, married Saul GUTFRIEND, and they may have perished in 1944 in the Shoah.  Fred, born in 1915 and died in 1979 in Spring Valley, married Elsie COHEN.  Nathan (Nat), born in 1917 and died in 1972 in Spring Valley, married Roslyn SAMPSON.

While researching the Lowenthals, I became aware of another name, Ruth (Rita) TEWEL, daughter of Mates TEWEL and Hendla LOWENTHAL.  She was born in 1909 and lived in Pittsburgh.  She married Benjamin NEWBERG and had two daughters.  After Benjamin's death, she was married to Allen SWISS.  Later, she married Morris WEIGER.  She died in 2000 in Pittsburgh.  It occurs to me that she might be related to Anna Tovel Stern, but because her mother was a Lowenthal she might logically be related to Solomon Lowenthal.  I would like to find out more information about the Sterns in addition to the relationship of Rita Weiger to the rest of the family.  Please let me know if you have any information.
