Kalladey, Budweiser Kreis, Bohemia and Merging Family Trees #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

I first met Ruth Coman and Peter Barber [both SIG
members >from London] when I organised a
Bohemia-Moravia get-together on the occasion of Susan
Boyer's [California] visit to London in Sept. 2004.
Little did I know, that 6 months later our trees would
merge.

Ruth rang me yesterday and she asked about a grave in
Wahringer Friedhof, Vienna of Franzisca [nee LOEWY]
SCHUSSLER [umlaut on the U]:

Schussler Franziska, age 67, 18.08.1872, Gp 7 Grave
466

who was possibly her gt-gt grandmother.

We confirmed today that Franziska was indeed from
Kalladey and was the right person. She was described
as an "Oekonomiebesitzers witwe" [Estate-owner's
widow]. Her deceased husband was Joachim Tobias
SCHUESSLER.

My immediate reaction was that I also have
SCHUESSLER on my tree and then we realised we were
talking about the same family and Ruth had been
corresponding with my SCHUESSLER third-cousin in
Australia.

Peter Barber's tree is linked to Ruth's tree through
KAFKA and SALUS.

SALUS is linked to SCHUESSLER - Ruth's tree.

SCHUESSLER is linked to BACHRACH and
BACHRACH is linked to BIACH [Celia's tree - my great-
grandmother being Emma nee BIACH. Her sister Charlotte
married Joseph BACHRACH and Joseph granddaughter
married into the same SCHUESSLER family discussed
above]. QED

Peter also has BACHRACHs on his tree from
Leipnik in northern Moravia. As yet, we do not know if
the two BACHRACH lines are related

Moreover, Franziska's parents, namely the LOEWYs
from Kalladey, may be the same as the Kalladey
LOEWYS on Randy Schoenberg's and Jane Reber's
[both >from California] trees.

Kalladey, [Kolodeje nad Luznici] in the Budweiser
Kreis, Southern Bohemia, had 69 Jewish families living
in the village in 1793; all 69 families were
Schutzjuden and four families were named "Lovi".

It is cause for a celebration all around; were there
still a Jewish community in Kalladey, I am sure there
would be dancing in the streets tonight.

As SIG members Uri Meretz and Ray Minkus have both
written to me [and I have their permission to quote]
"bim bam bom" was also used in Hebrew songs - so
perhaps that is what they might be singing too.

I am a bit supprised by your links with Peter Barber, Celia.
I was sure that Peter's ancestry is >from Poland, as we have
a common cousin, Eve Klein, nee Barber. She is my first
cousin, born in Bratislava ( the same as I ) >from the Fuchs-
Redlich (Bisenz) side and Peter's second cousin
from the Barber side.

What an exciting event for Celia and her newly discovered relatives.
Trully amazing. I just wish that I could find my ancestral family of
Britzmann. Does anyone know of any such families today?

Well Tsvi - what you do not realise is that now your
tree and Peter Barber's, Ruth Coman's and mine have
also merged ... and possible Jane Reber's and Randy
Schoenberg's too.

The link is real and confirmed:

KAFKA-SALUS-SCHUSSLER-BACHRACH-BIACH-KOHN
[changed to Kerner].

The latter family is mine.

Now you must work out the following link with Peter:

FUCHS-REDLICH-KLEIN-BARBER to SALUS and then we are
all linked.

Links [chains] are very complex but fun! And that
should be one of our "raison d'etre", namely to have a
bit of fun, with our fellow SIGGERS!

So, tonight there will be dancing in the streets of
Bisenz and Bratislava [Pressburg, Presporek, Pozsony]
too. More Bim Bam Bom all around.

How many more links can we find? I have recently found
a link for a 1790s Bremen-Danish POLLAK family with a
Sephardic family >from Livorno, [dello STROLOGO],
resident in Alexandria, Egypt since the 1850s. These
POLLAKS are probably linked to some of ours - if we
only knew how.

That is what I understand by the "Family Tree of the
Jewish People".
