Do you have a Napoleon 1812 story?

Roots-Key, the journal of Jewish Genealogical Society Los Angeles, is
collecting information about Napoleon's Russian Campaign of 1812. We
hope to be able to plot the route >from Kovno to Moscow with your stories.

Napoleon's army covered a broad front that stretched north and south
through Kovno, Vilna, Svensionys, Vitebsk, Mogilev and Minsk, bordered
by the Pripet Marshes on the south, and crossing the Nieman, the Dneiper,
and the Berezino Rivers. Major battles were in Smolensk, Borisov and
Borodino. Every village and villager was affected. Construction,
demolition, pillage, disease and death threatened every shtetl and town
in his path.

If you have a story, no matter how insignificant or obscure it sounds,
we would like to hear it. If you would like to participate in this JGSLA
project, please contact Nancy Holden, Editor of Roots-Key, at:

New Book, "Caviar and Ashes" in the JewishGenMall #latvia

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners,

Whether your ancestors came >from Poland or you are just interested in the
history of the Polish intellectuals of the 20th century, the new book
"Caviar and Ashes" by Dr. Marci Shore is sure to be a fascinating read.
Recently published by Yale University Press, the book can now be purchased
at a discounted price through the JewishGenMall.

Dr. Shore's "Caviar and Ashes" eloquently presents the history of a
generation of Polish intelligentsia born at the turn of the last
century. The book follows the lives of young innovators who chose the
Marxist philosophy even before Poland fell under the control of the Soviet
Union. Their selected path took them >from literary cafes not only to
corridors of power but also to prison cells. The work, based on the newly
obtainable archives >from Poland, the ex-USSR and Israel, recounts over
fifty years of Eastern-European Jewish literati history in the twentieth
century.

Please visit the JewishGenMall at < www.jewishgenmall.org > and to read

That is Russian. In Russian cyrillic, i's always look like backwards N.
Ukrainian has these characters, but also an "i" formed like ours, and
another "i" with two dots. Belarussian doesn't have the i with two dots,
but adds Y (U) with an accent mark, which neither Russian nor Ukrainian
have.

Odessa may still be more Russian than Ukrainian despite its location.

I hired a researcher in Romania, and one of the records he found was
the burial of what would appear to be my great grandmother. He told
me she is buried in Rulikovski Cemetery. I have never heard that
name mentioned in any posts. Can anyone give me any information on
this? Thank you, Leslie Weinberg

Yes, it is easier, but Galician sources I am aware of that might list the

Quoting Austria-Czech SIG digest <austriaczech@...>:

A relative of mine immigrated to Vienna >from Galicia between 1893 and 1904,
and died in Vienna in 1905. I know his name, date of death, date of burial,
where he is buried in Vienna, year of birth, parents' names, siblings names,
and an address in Vienna. Based on non-Viennese sources, I strongly suspect
that a person who remained in Galicia and died after him was a brother of
his, but my attempts to learn that person's parents' names or other
information linking the two have failed.

What Viennese sources might supply the names of siblings, nieces, or nephews
of this person? I am unfamiliar with Viennese sources, but gather >from the
SIG website that the Heraldic-Genealogical Society "Adler" might have death
notices with such information. Is the Magistrat der Stadt Wien the
