Connection between HURWITZ and ABRAMOWITZ families 19th cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My ggreatmother , Gittel ABRAMOWITZ, came to New Haven, Ct., USA >from Novarodok
(via Liverpool) during the latter half of the 19th century. As she was widowed
before she left Europe and remarried (either in Liverpool or in the states) she had
a different family name. As she came to the states with four children (>from her
first husband) they all remained ABRAMOWITZ. As far as we know , her profession was
silversmithing and she supposedly had a sliversmithing enterprise in New Haven till
she made aliya to Eretz Yisrael (Palestine) sometime in the beginning of the 20th
cent. I do have a general list of silversmiths working in New Haven at the time ,
but not knowing her new married name it does not help me. There is a rumor that
when they made aliya the sold their presises to Yale U. but the University said
to me that it would take ages to research that in their archives.

I presume that she came to New Haven as there is a strong family tradition that
there is a family connection with Rabbi Isaac Simcha HURWITZ who served as a rabbi
in Hartford, Ct. during the latter part of the 19th cent. until about 1935 (when he
deceased). We know that Rabbi HURWITZ came >from Novarodok and that his Palestinian
cousin a, shochet in Petach Tikva, R' Shimon HURWITZ, "adopted" (took into his
home) my great aunt, Miriam ABRAMOWITZ/KATZIN when she was orphaned >from both her
parents after WW!.

The families who are connected to this Rabbi HURWITZ are: PUCHOWITZ, BERMAN,
WAXMAN, RUDMAN and others. Many of members of these families said they "know we are
related" but no one alive today seems to know how. Someone said there is a family
tree mentioning our connection"floating around" somewhere but I have not been able
to locate it.

I am not sure if the connection is through the ABRAMOWITZ side or Gittel's side
(whose family name I do not know). A possible connection may be through the
ABRAMOWITZ side as there is an additional family tradition that which states that
an ABRAMOWITZ ancestor was the brother of the Rav of Novarodok , Rav Dovid (no
family name) son of Moshe of Kletzk. This Rabbi Dovid, also known for his
authorship of the "Galia Mesechta" was a contemporary of Rav Chaim of Volozhin who
lived about 200 years ago.

I would be very happy to hear >from anyone who may know the connection between our
families or happens to know where the family tree mentioned above may be found.

Happy Israeli Yom Ha'atmaut (Independence day).

Judy LANDAUER and LANDAUER of Gerabronn m. STERNER - Wilhermsdorf #germany

Does anyone have a valid email address for Judy LANDAUER JGID 54630 who has
posted some information in the FTJP that interests me. My email through the
FTJP bounced.

My question pertains to a relative Wolf STERNER >from Wilhermsdorf,
Mittelfranken, who married Bluemlein LANDAUER of Gerabronn,
Wuerttemberg. Bluemlein is apparently a member of the same LANDAUER family
as Judy LANDAUER. I am also interested in corresponding with others who are
familiar with these Wolf and Bluemlein.

Re: Jewish records for L'viv - since when & until when? #ukraine

Dear Irit:

JRI-Poland (www.jri-poland.org) has indexed some of the Lviv/Lwow/Lemberg
records that are held at the AGAD Archives in Warsaw. These include mostly
births and marriages for 1863-1903. There are also other records at the AGAD
Archives that have not been indexed as well as records at the Ukraine State
Archives in Lviv that have been microfilmed by the LDS Family History
Library.

JRI-Poland provides summaries of all Galician records at these sources
(including Lwow) on two online Excel spreadsheets.

http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/agad/galiciatowns.xls
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/agad/lvivinventory.xls

To the best of my knowledge, all the more recent (pre-War) records form Lwow
are held in Warsaw, either at the AGAD Archive or the Warsaw USC (civil
records office). These records are protected >from public use by regulations
and are not available for research or indexing.

Hello genners,

Am a new comer to this SIG. So, please, bear with me.

I was told, that in the archives there are Jewish records for L'viv [Lvov,
Lwow, Lemberg] >from 1801, and already researched them.
According to the FHLC there are Jewish Congregation records since 1791.

How far can I go back with researching L'viv?
Are there really 1791-1800 Jewish BMD/vital records in the Central State
Historical Archives ?

And for the other end: are there any accessible records for 1939-1942 in
L'viv archives [except those in the USC !]?
I know about the "100 years old" Law.
[I know about what there is at Holicaust Museums].

Thank you,

The Sephardic Legacy in New Mexico: A History of the Crypto-Jews
A talk and presentation by Dr. Stanley M. Hordes

Jewish Community Library
1835 Ellis Street
San Francisco, CA 94115
7:30 pm

During his tenure as New Mexico State Historian in the 1980's, Dr.
Hordes met people in the Hispanic community who displayed practices
suggestive of Jewish customs, such as lighting candles on Friday night
for the Jewish Sabbath and following Jewish dietary laws. His
research led to his award-winning book on the history of the
crypto-Jews in New Mexico. Dr. Hordes will discuss the evolution of
the crypto-Jews >from their origins in the forced conversions of Spain
in the 14th and 15th centuries to the recent past, describing the
customs and consciousness that have survived to this day.

Dr. Stanley M. Hordes is an adjunct research professor at the Latin
American and Iberian Institute of the University of New Mexico. His
book "To the End of the Earth: A History of the Crypto-Jews of New
Mexico" was awarded the Gaspar Pérez de Villagrá Prize in 2006 by the
Historical Society of New Mexico for outstanding historical
publication of the year. In 2007, the book won the Southwest Book
Award, given by the Border Regional Library Association.
This event is cosponsored by the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish
Genealogical Society.

The discussion is free and open to the public. For more information,
