Does anyone know on which streets most of the Jewish family were living to
facilitate my research as the books are by streets and there are at least 40
of them..

There is also a mine of information (all the family registers 1762-1794-1800
and birth/wedding/death certificates >from 1761 till 1874 which allowed me to
make a lot of progress in discovering ancestors.

Issue 138 of Genealo-J has just been published #germany

Georges Graner
 

Genealo-J, publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of France,
Issue 138, June 2019 has just been published.

Rémy Chicheportiche tries to summarize the history of his family which,
along the centuries, has taken many different forms, such as Ses Portes,
Sasportas, Sasportes, Chicheportiche, Portouch.

This family is attested at the end of the 13th century in Majorca, one
of the Balearic islands, when these islands were reconquered by the
Aragonic kingdom. But they were expelled in 1391 and had to settle in
Honaine and Tlemcen (Algeria). Around 1492, due to troubles in Tlemcen,
they mainly move to Oran although this city is in the hands of the
Spanish crown. Expelled again in 1669, they settled in Algiers where
they were still at the time of the French conquest (1830). The author
draws several partial genealogical trees of this family at different times.

How can this family be related to the Ca Porta found in Catalonia ? How
is it related to the Chicheportiche families trading in the saharian
trails or in Morocco ? This is an immense jigsaw puzzle with still many
missing parts.

Anne-Marie Fribourg was puzzled by the life of Auguste Blum (1812-1878).
Parts of his life are well documented. Other parts are still mysterious.
He came >from a family of Alsatian ironmasters, studied in Ecole
Polytechnique, published several mathematical studies and was involved
in the political events of 1848. But after 1855, he is more difficult to
track. He seems to have worked for railways in Russia. In 1860, a
Clarisse Blum was born in Saint-Petersburg, but she is declared of
unknown parents, even though Auguste is obviously her father and she
repeats, when she gets married, that her parents are unknown.But, when
she dies in 1933, she is said to be the daughter of Jean Auguste Blum
and Marie Guigitsky.

Auguste Blum seems to have been married twice, officially or not. One
wifeis Marie Guigitsky. The other one is Adelaide Tullie Cagnet aka
Tullie Moneuse aka Tullie Blum.. When she dies in 1875, the registrar
first wrote « widow of Auguste Blum » but corrected it to « married to
Auguste Blum». Another strange fact is the announcement in a Parisian
newspaper on November 24, 1867 that a Mr Blum, who is likely to be
Auguste Blum, has been murdered in San Francisco where he had made a
large fortune. The actual death of Auguste is on January 6, 1878, in
Paris, as declared by his brother Moise. Strangely again, this death is
reported two years later only in three different French papers who all
mention his fortune obtained in California. We have no details about his
life in California.

Elisabeth Lippmann (1810-1879) nee Levy, is born in Sarrebourg
(Lorraine). She marries in 1834 Leon Lippmann, a banker >from a family of
Verdun. They settle in Sarrebourg and during 22 years, 1847-1869,
Elisabeth kept the daily accounts of her home. One can find here the
everyday domestic details of the life of a wealthy Jewish family.
Mireille Provansal-Lippmann analyzed these accounts. Elisabeth has an
active role in the Jewish community, of which her husband is the leader,
although she is open to her times, seeking integration and
respectability. The debt incurred by the weddings of the five daughters
of the couple weighs heavily on the family budget during the years
leading up to bankruptcy and exile.

The city of Salonika (now called Thessaloniki) comprised a majority of
Jewish inhabitants, under the Turkish rule. Many of them spoke a very
good French that they had learned at the schools of Alliance Israelite
Universelle, established in the city since 1873. The situation changed
when the city was annexed by Greece in 1912 and even more after the
great fire of August 18, 1917.Many Jews quitted the city between the two
World Wars. Their number was still 56,000 in 1939 but they were all
deported and slaughtered by the Germans in 1943.Anne-Marie Faraggi
presents many clips >from Jewish newspapersof the period 1895-1910
showing the active social life.

Looking for HUTTER born in Budapest #dna

shaul berger
 

3 years ago I found a maternal branch through DNA (FTDNA). All DNA
matching was done vs Robert Charles Greenwood whose mother was
Charlotte Hutter. My maternal grandfather was Leo Hutter. I know that
Charlotte Hutter (born in Budapest 3/4/1900) was Robert's mother.
Robert Charles Greenwood is on FamilyTreeDNA as a 1st-2nd cousin
match to my mother. The DNA matching is very strong 474 total
centimorgans with longest block of 71. This is confirmed by the fact
that I am 1st-3rd cousin with DNA matching 320/71. Similar strong DNA
matching is found for my brother Joseph and my son Erran. So no doubt
that I am related to Robert. The question is how? Is my conviction
completely wrong? Robert nor his daughter do not have a clue. Their
Ancestry is full of errors and very unreliable. It does not answer my
questions at all.

Where and how can I get solid data about their "origins' in Hungary?
Charlotte was born 3/4/1900. Her brother Israel Irving in 1897 and
her sister Shari 10/14/1910. All in Budapest. They all immigrated to
USA in early 20th century and appear also in 1930 census. Their
family is (maybe) >from Lubycza Krolewska, Poland (JRI search came
empty). My grandfather Leo Hutter was born in 1879 in Jaroslaw which
is not too far away. I am looking for the parenst/grandparents of
Charlotte, Irving and Shari and they should be on their birth
registration.

Any advice how to find the birth certificates. I already searched
JRI, Jewisgen, LDS. Any advice how to confirm the DNA match results

Thank You so much in advance

Nowy Sacz 1870 Census #galicia

Howard Fink
 

I am happy to announce that (thanks to a generous donor) the 1870 Census
from Nowy Sacz is now available when you search the JRI-Poland database.
Note that you may want to reduce your search results to a smaller set of
records by restricting your search to the Krakow Geographical Region
and/or Census / Books of Residents Record Types.

A volunteer is currently extracting the data >from the 1890 Nowy Sacz
Census, and that will become available later this year. This collection will
include links to directly view the scanned images of the original records at
the Polish Archives.

While we do have many Jewish vital records >from Nowy Sacz already in our
online database we do have both more complete extractions of many of
these years, and more recent years of records that are not yet online. Until
these projects have been fully funded they cannot be put online. Those
researchers who make qualifying contributions will have access to the
records with their family surnames right away. Please contact me with
details of your Nowy Sacz family if you would like to know what records are
available for them.

Issue 138 of Genealo-J has just been published #france

Georges Graner
 

Genealo-J, publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of France,
Issue 138, June 2019 has just been published.

Rémy Chicheportiche tries to summarize the history of his family which,
along the centuries, has taken many different forms, such as Ses Portes,
Sasportas, Sasportes, Chicheportiche, Portouch.

This family is attested at the end of the 13th century in Majorca, one
of the Balearic islands, when these islands were reconquered by the
Aragonic kingdom. But they were expelled in 1391 and had to settle in
Honaine and Tlemcen (Algeria). Around 1492, due to troubles in Tlemcen,
they mainly move to Oran although this city is in the hands of the
Spanish crown. Expelled again in 1669, they settled in Algiers where
they were still at the time of the French conquest (1830). The author
draws several partial genealogical trees of this family at different times.

How can this family be related to the Ca Porta found in Catalonia ? How
is it related to the Chicheportiche families trading in the saharian
trails or in Morocco ? This is an immense jigsaw puzzle with still many
missing parts.

Anne-Marie Fribourg was puzzled by the life of Auguste Blum (1812-1878).
Parts of his life are well documented. Other parts are still mysterious.
He came >from a family of Alsatian ironmasters, studied in Ecole
Polytechnique, published several mathematical studies and was involved
in the political events of 1848. But after 1855, he is more difficult to

Clarisse Blum was born in Saint-Petersburg, but she is declared of
unknown parents, even though Auguste is obviously her father and she
repeats, when she gets married, that her parents are unknown.But, when
she dies in 1933, she is said to be the daughter of Jean Auguste Blum
and Marie Guigitsky.

Auguste Blum seems to have been married twice, officially or not. One
wifeis Marie Guigitsky. The other one is Adelaide Tullie Cagnet aka
Tullie Moneuse aka Tullie Blum.. When she dies in 1875, the registrar
first wrote « widow of Auguste Blum » but corrected it to « married to
Auguste Blum». Another strange fact is the announcement in a Parisian
newspaper on November 24, 1867 that a Mr Blum, who is likely to be
Auguste Blum, has been murdered in San Francisco where he had made a
large fortune. The actual death of Auguste is on January 6, 1878, in
Paris, as declared by his brother Moise. Strangely again, this death is
reported two years later only in three different French papers who all
mention his fortune obtained in California. We have no details about his
life in California.

French SIG #France Issue 138 of Genealo-J has just been published #france

Genealo-J, publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of France,
Issue 138, June 2019 has just been published.

Rémy Chicheportiche tries to summarize the history of his family which,
along the centuries, has taken many different forms, such as Ses Portes,
Sasportas, Sasportes, Chicheportiche, Portouch.

This family is attested at the end of the 13th century in Majorca, one
of the Balearic islands, when these islands were reconquered by the
Aragonic kingdom. But they were expelled in 1391 and had to settle in
Honaine and Tlemcen (Algeria). Around 1492, due to troubles in Tlemcen,
they mainly move to Oran although this city is in the hands of the
Spanish crown. Expelled again in 1669, they settled in Algiers where
they were still at the time of the French conquest (1830). The author
draws several partial genealogical trees of this family at different times.

How can this family be related to the Ca Porta found in Catalonia ? How
is it related to the Chicheportiche families trading in the saharian
trails or in Morocco ? This is an immense jigsaw puzzle with still many
missing parts.

Anne-Marie Fribourg was puzzled by the life of Auguste Blum (1812-1878).
Parts of his life are well documented. Other parts are still mysterious.
He came >from a family of Alsatian ironmasters, studied in Ecole
Polytechnique, published several mathematical studies and was involved
in the political events of 1848. But after 1855, he is more difficult to
track. He seems to have worked for railways in Russia. In 1860, a
Clarisse Blum was born in Saint-Petersburg, but she is declared of
unknown parents, even though Auguste is obviously her father and she
repeats, when she gets married, that her parents are unknown.But, when
she dies in 1933, she is said to be the daughter of Jean Auguste Blum
and Marie Guigitsky.
