Re: Illinitzer K.U.V. #general


K.U.V. stands for the Yiddish words "Kranken Unterstitzungs Verein" and
mean Sick Benevolent Society.

Jewishgen's Shtetleseeker finds many towns named Ilintsy or equivalent,
however one particular Ilintsy, with a New York K.U.V is probably yours..

Ilintsy is/was a town in Vinnitsa province, Ukaraine. The records of the
Ilinitzer K.U.V. founded in 1895, are held by YIVO. The Ilinitzer or
(Elinitzer) K.U.V. is listed in "A Guide to YIVO's Landsmanshaftn Archive"
by Schwartz & Milamed.

And what does K.U.V. stand for?
