Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Katcherginsky Family of Vidzy #lithuania


brooklyncowboy@...
 

I provide the below information to share with others researching or having
interest in the Katcherginsky Family, my ancestors, of Lithuania. Would love
to communicate with anyone who believes we may related and wants to share
research data.

The information comes >from my individual research as well >from results
I have identified in searching of the ALD Revision Lists.

Query of the All Lithuania Revision List Database 2 has identified to me
potential ancestors based on the given name of my great grandfather -
Shkhna - as it appears (and I have phonetically translated) on his
gravestone. The last name was Katcherginsky and per family info my
maternal great grandmother's given name was Shana Reza (sp).

Specifically I have questions related to the question marks (?) that appear
in some of the data fields for what I believe are some of my ancestors. I
assume the question marks relate to the translators questioning or
assumptions made regarding the data as read >from the original documents.

Thus would appreciate any comments on the following 2 specific ALD -2
extracts and if someone has access to the original data sources would
appreciate reassessment that may provide clarification and perhaps
closure of question marked data.

The following two extracts I believe may be my maternal grandfather and
potentially his sister, which could link them to the Zelik and Ginda

Additionally, I am aware that we have relatives who migrated to Canada vs.
U.S. but have not yet finalized the exact relationship but the above may
help with that. I know they lived in Granby and later near Montreal.

Family is Chaim (Hyman) Katcherginsky born in Widzie in 1877 and Rachel
Fanny (Richmond) Katcherginsky born in Vilna in 1882.
Children - Abraham, Ellis, Bertha, Henrietta, and David
The family name was later shortened to Kary by some of the children,
including David.
According to cemetery records I have Hyman's parents were Zelic
Katchergensky born in Poland and Bessie? And Fanny's parents were
Isaac Richmond born in Poland and Hinda.

I have not been able to identify them in the Lithuanian or Polish
data bases.

Appreciate in advance any thoughts, additional info and if possible
recheck of the actual records that can be provided as well as contact
info >from potential relatives.

Thanks
