My name is Ron Peeters and I live in Ulvenhout (The Netherlands). When
researching the background of the Jewish side of my family in Cape
Town I found a very interesting link to my ancestors of which I hope
to find out more.

One of my ancestors, Meyer LEWIN (in England recorded as LEVIN) left
Danzig before 1814 when other members of his family adopted the family
name 'PERLBACH'. His brother Hirsh Lewin PERLBACH became an important
amber dealer and Meyer became his agent in London.

On line consulting the CAHJP files in Jerusalem I found there the
Hirsch Levin Perlbachse Familienstiftung and in it there are two
files which I assume contain information I am interested in:

566 Korrespondentz Enth.: Geburts- und Sterbeurkuden der
Perlebachschen Verwandtschaft 1875-1890;

1650a Handakte des Rechtsanwalts Gall (1815-1823) Enth.: Stambaum der
Familie Perlbach Intus: Mitgeliederlist der Altschotlaender Gemeinde,
1819, 1887-1892.

Since the CAHJP does not offer a copy serice I wonder if you can help
me directly or indirectely through a contact in Jerusalem.

Thanks in advance and kind regards,

Ron Peeters

Avraham Groll
 

Dear JewishGen Community,

I'm pleased to announce another staffing shift as we continue to
develop JewishGen's internal structure to make the best use of our
resources.

As of last week, Warren Blatt has assumed the new position of Senior
Genealogist for JewishGen.

In this newly created senior level position, Warren will ensure that
the JewishGen website remains reflective of genealogical standards and
that the archival transcriptions are as accurate as possible. He will
accomplish this by providing strategic direction and support to the
Senior Research Team, while also serving as the primary liaison with
technical staff for database projects.

As Senior Genealogist, Warren will also play a larger role in
representing JewishGen at various speaking engagements, and responding
to media requests for comments on Jewish genealogical issues.

Warren's technical background and genealogical expertise make him
particularly suited for this position. A software engineer before
joining the JewishGen staff in 2003, he has worked in various roles,
most recently in the position of Managing Director. Previously, as
JewishGen's Editor-in-Chief, he authored the JewishGen FAQ
("Frequently Asked Questions About Jewish Genealogy"), and dozens of
JewishGen InfoFiles. He is the author of Resources for Jewish
Genealogy in the Boston Area (Boston: JGSGB, 1996), and co-author of
Getting Started in Jewish Genealogy (Avotaynu, 1999), and other works.

Widely recognized for his contributions to Jewish genealogy, in 2004
he was awarded the International Association of Jewish Genealogical
Societies (IAJGS) Lifetime Achievement Award in Jerusalem.

Please join me in congratulating Warren on his new position.

Re: Rav Shabsi Sheftel Weill or Weiss #hungary

A Google search for Shabsi Sheftel Weill, returned a few websites with
the yahrzeit as 3 Cheshvan 1943.
This is actually the date of death for Rav Shabsi Sheftel Weiss who
was Rabbi in Simoni (Nagysimonyi).
This will confirm that the name Weill was a typo, as there definitely
weren't 2 rabbis in Simoni at the same time with the same name who
died the same day.

continuation about Luger #hungary

Hi thanks to all the responses to my request. The Craciunesti town I"m
referring to is Tiszakaracsonyfalva and the town Teresif is Teresva.
In the records that's known to me the wife of Jacob Hers Luger, Rivka
Katz was born in the town of Remeti. In the Jewishgen their is a
Joseph Katz in Remeti >from very early on but I can't find a katz from
a later period that could be the possible parents of Rivka. In
reference about not being able to live in Hungary what I understand is
that since he was originally >from Galicia and he went to learn in the
yeshiva of the rabbi of Chust (that was under Hungarian control) that
could make him be deported he had to hide his identity. Thanks again.
