If the names you are researching did not show up in my mother's Public
School 174 graduation autograph book (class of June 1921), and if you want
to try again, you might want to contact the current principal of the
school,[personal information deleted]

Good luck.

Arkey whose mother was from Eisiskes #general

Arthur Golnick <agolnick@...>
 

Seek descendants, if any, of ARKEY (R-Key), family name unknown, a kohane,
born ca 1900 in Daugai, Eisiskes or Vilna, Lithuania, whose mother was of=
an Eisiskes family either YURKAMSKI or GORDON. Mother of Arkey died upon
his birth, her family (Gordon or Yurkanski) reared him, and Arkey did not
use his father's family name. Arkey had immigrated to the U. S. and was
living in the Tampa, FL area. Father of Arkey was Beryl KAGAN of Daugai
whose three sons >from a prior marriage Joe, Leo & Abe Kagan in NYC did not
want to know of Arkey. He tried to visit them in the 1930s. Was orally
told of Gordon & Tampa. I knew prior of Arkey. Possibly mother of Arkey of
Yurkanski family based on marriage record I g=ot >from the Vilna archive.
It says that in 1899 Daugai citizen Beryl Kagan a=widower married Eisiskes
citizen resident of Daugai Chaia Pesa bat Moshe YAKIANSKI. Anyone know of
Arkey? Any Eisiskes people who might know to contact? Any Eisiskes people
in Tampa to contact? Any Eisiskes Gordon or Yurkanski people to contact
not in family finder?

Birth Records from Kiev? #general

grace
 

A friend without internet access needs her mother's birth certificate, or
proof of birth. Her mother's "information" had been included on a
"certificate" belonging to an aunt when they all arrived in America in the
1920s, I believe. They came by boat >from Marseilles. Her father had
arrived here years earlier. She was born in Kiev in 1908. Is it possible
to obtain these records? The papers belonging to the aunt were stolen
sometime ago in Israel, "chaval", and no other records are available.
Thanks for any suggestions and help.
