Origins of the name POBEREZHSKIY #ukraine

Lily Poberezhska <lilypob@...>
 

Hello,

I am trying to trace the origin of my surname: POBEREZHSKIY. There are
not many of us around, but it definitely is a Jewish surname, albeit
sounding very Slavic. I am sure it has a toponymical origin. So far I
have managed to locate two places in Ukraine that sound like my name:
Poberezhya in Ivano-Frankivsk region (used to be part of the
Austro-Hungarian Empire) and a village of Poberezhska in Kiev region.

Will be grateful for any good guess,

I am new to your list, and to mail lists, so firgive my likely errors
please.

The FRIEDMANN and SCHWARZ families mentioned on 26 and 27 April are very
similar to some in my husband's Vienna families. The difference is that his
relatives are all without the MANN ending on the surnames.

Can you tell me if these could be the same family, but the descendants only
knew them by the shorter version of the names?

The time frames appear to be close to the onces we will be working to
extend. The other name in Vienna was GROSS.

Thank you.

Census, I very much doubt though that full coverage was not seen as an
objective.

More recently I have found that a U.S. Census Monitoring Board was set up to
"observe and monitor all aspects of the preparation and implementation of
the 2000 decennial census" which in its report to Congress of 1 February 1999
http://govinfo.library.unt.edu/cmb/cmbp/downloads/99feb1.html acknowledged
that the 1990 Census was a disaster. The report said that more than 8
million were missed in 1990 and 4 millions were counted twice.

It says that the resulting net undercount of more than four million was
comprised disproportionately of racial and ethnic minorities and children.

The NAS (National Academy of Support) supported the view that it was
impossible to produce an accurate or complete count using traditional
methods of census enumeration (because 16 percent of the population change
their residence each year).

A household survey was proposed to supplement the Census.

It notes that "The original plan for the 2000 census called for the use of
scientific estimation only as a supplemental means of finding those people
who do not respond to traditional census methods."

I think that >from this it is apparent that at the highest level of the US
Government there was a concern about the inaccuracies and lack of coverage
of the Census in specific groups (particularly the disabled).

PERLIN/BERLIN #belarus

Howard Berlin
 

My grandfather Abram Perlin was born in Dubrovna, (Mogilev Guburnia) Belarus
on 10th July 1881. He came to London in 1906 and his surname was changed to
Berlin. His fathers name Hebrew name was Peretz.

The records >from the JewishGen database show that a Peissakh Perlin had 4
sons 1879-1885.

We believe that my grandfathers brothers were Fridman Perlin (born 20th
October 1883) and he came to USA early 1900's and Meer Perlin (born 8th December
1885) and my grandfathers mother Braina or Braine Perlin both of whom came to
USA in December 1904. We also believe that my grandfather had another
brother (born in 1879).

My grandfather was a twin but I have little information on his twin sister.

I am trying to research to see if there are any are any decendants.

Adolph RICH - Fanny BLOOMBERG - Isaac Rich - Sarah Rich #general

Nick Rich <nick@...>
 

Hello all,

I recently asked the group a question about how I could find the original
family surname, which is now "RICH", and I would like to thank everyone for
so many helpful replies.

Although I am still searching, I do have more information now.

I have discovered that Adolph Rich (Born Germany 1858) married Fanny
BLOOMBERG (Born Birmingham, UK 1869) in August 1888, at Humbro Synagogue,
Princes Street, London. Fanny was the daughter of Lazarus (Born, Riga,
Russia) and Rachael (Born Poland - I cannot decipher the town name). Adolph
was recorded as "Adolphus" elsewhere*. Adolph was apparently playing a
big part in one of the Synagogues in Birmingham, he appears in the Jewish
Chronicle many times, making regular donations, some quite large, he even
had a room named after his dead son, the "David Rich" room. >from the
information I've been given over the years by my family, I would guess that
Adolph came into this country during the 1870's, with his parents and
brother, Isaac. Isaac was born in 1867, and was known to the family as Uncle
Issie, which I'm told was short for Isidore, although I cannot confirm the
accuracy of this.

Adolph and Isaac settled in Burton-on-Trent, and they can be found in the
1891 census, living just a couple of streets away >from one another, Adolph
now married, and Isaac living on his own. They are both listed as picture
frame makers, and wood carvers. In 1901, Adolph had moved to Birmingham with
his family, and Isaac had married a "Sarah" >from Manchester and had children
of his own, and was now living in Burslem, Staffordshire, UK, where it would
appear he stayed for most, if not all of his life.

Information I have discovered, >from some very helpful replies, is that Isaac
would appear to have been born in Schlesien. I don't know exactly where
Adolph was born, although he is listed as a German subject in 1891 and 1901
census. I have tried doing a search on "Rich" in Schlesien, with no luck. I
have also tried the London Gazette, and although I can find a business
reference to Adolph, there is nothing for naturalization. Maybe the reason
that Adolph was classed as German, and Isaac as Polish/Russian, was because
the borders changed in the 9 years between their births, I don't know. I
have tried the National archives, with no luck, although it may help if I
knew what name to refer to. Reich, Riech, Rieche, Reichen, Richter, Richten,
Richen, Richens have all be suggested, and I would say there is a fair
chance of any being correct. Would Kew House hold this information? What
information would I need to get a result at Kew House?

If anyone has any more ideas, or any of the above information rings any
bells, please let me know.

Kind regards,

Rabbi Moshe Aaron POLIYER of Kobrin #rabbinic

Elise
 

Hello,

I'm researching the PALEVSKY family, who are apparently mostly
descended >from Rabbi Moshe Aaron POLIYER of Kobrin (Belarus). I
have some information gleaned >from various articles on the web, as
well as a partial genealogy that someone else did many years ago.
However, I would like to tap other resources, including original
source material, and am hoping someone on this list can help.

You can see the details of my PALEVSKY research here:

http://www.research.palevsky.net

These are the online sources that I've already found that mention Rabbi
Moshe:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/lyakhovichi/Rabbonim.htm
http://www.ascent.org.il/NewAscentOfSafed/Stories/Stories/5764/317-08.html
freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~cpsa/shereshov/Alexandrovsky_article.htm
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/lyakhovichi/Teachings.htm
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/gorodets/gor003.html

In summary, these sources say:

Rabbi Moshe was a follower of Rabbi Mordechai of Lyakhovichi, as
well as Mordechai's son Noah. He became Admur of Kobrin in 1833 and
was the first Rebbe of the Kobrin Dynasty. He wrote a book on the
teachings of Rabbis Mordechai and Noah. Rabbi Moshe's teachings are
in a book called "Imros Taharos". He was founder of the Slonim
Dynasty, which was first led by a pupil and then his grandson
Noah-Naftali of Kobrin. Rabbi Moshe and his son Israel Jacob PALER
are listed in "Otzar haRabbanim". His last name is given variously
as PALER, FALER, PELIER, PELLIER. Some of his descendants used
PALEVSKY which was a surname in Lyakhovichi until the twentieth
century. Rabbi Moshe died in 1858.

In addition, there are PALEVSKY descendants of the Vilna Gaon.
Chaim Freedman's book "Eliyahu's Branches: The Descendants of the
Vilna Gaon," shows Yehudah PALEFSKY married Sarah Gittel PENCHUK, a
direct descendant of the Vilna Gaon. A note in the book says that
Yehudah is reputed to be a brother to Rabbi Moshe POLIER. Most of
the PALEVSKY information in the book was submitted to Chaim Freedman
by a researcher Sam Chwat -- I've attempted to get in contact with
him, but have yet to hear back.

Anyone with access to the referenced Imros Taharos and Otzar
haRabbanim please contact me. Are there any other resources that I
should tap?

My Hebrew knowledge is pretty much limited to reading matzevahs and
synagogue prayer books (not fluently), so any and all assistance in
locating and obtaining source materials in Hebrew would be greatly
appreciated. I do have someone who can translate any Hebrew
materials that I'm able to obtain.

Thank you!

Re: Correcting surname spellings in cemetery online databases #general

"Rochelle Gershenow" <rpgersh@...> wrote

Sometimes the cemetery records are correct and the name on the stone is
misspelled. I just came across this situation. I believe the stone was
erected by a grandson (whose last name was different than his grandmother's)
many years after his grandmother's death and after the death of his parents.
I seem to recall that we realised we made a mistake on the fact of whether
or not my grandmother's father was a Cohen on her tombstone when visited
her grave not so long ago.

People make mistakes and not for nothing is the expression "carved in stone"
used for something that is not easily changeable - not that it is correct.

One organisation that I used to work for, before its abolition recorded on
the exterior of its building carved or indented in the stone in large
characters, the history of the organisation and its predecessors in the
knowledge that it would be very difficult for a future owner to reinstate
the stonework to its original state.

Jewish Refugees to Boston, 1940 #general

Susan&David
 

To All:
In the year 1940 two British passenger ships, the "Nova Scotia" and
the "Newfoundland" made eleven Atlantic crossings >from Liverpool,
carrying 1,052 passengers to their Boston, Massachusetts destination.
The majority of passengers were Europeans who's home countries, Germany,
Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland had been taken over by the Nazis.
The largest number of these, 888, were Jews, fortunate enough or
far-seeing enough to have acquired travel documents in time to
escape the oncoming holocaust.

I have contributed transcriptions of the full passenger lists to the
Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild
http://www.immigrantships.net/

They may be found in Volume 8 at:
