Carol,

How about getting reciprocal "look ups" if you know someone in the
States who needs material >from Israel. Just an idea.

I don't recall the original post but it could be when one enters their
data in the Jewish Genealogy Family Finder and obtains a "researcher
number"

Russian prison records? #general

David Joseph Colman <dybk@...>
 

There is a story in my family that my great grandfather, Shmuel
Yeshiyahu CHERNIAK, was imprisoned by the communists shortly after the
overthrow of the czar. Supposedly he had been a pharmacist "in the
czar's court" and somehow the communists took offence to his ties to the
ruling class. (Yes, I know these stories are often heavily imbellished
if even remotely true)

Is there any method to search for Russian records regarding prison terms
or crimes in the early 1900's?

Adoption #general

Anita R Shaw <ps44@...>
 

A son was born to my unmarried mother Ruchel/Rojza SOBOWINSKI or
SOBAWINSKI in Lodz in 1921 or 1922, and given to an aunt Pessa
Sobawinski/Sobowinski (maiden name STRAWSZYNSKI) who adopted out the
child to a wealthy soap manufacturer in Lodz or vicinity. The child may
have been registered to any of the above names or to my mother's mother
Faiga Brucha Sobowinski. Would anyone have any information about this
baby son of my mother. My mother died in 1981 in the United States, and
I am seeking my half brother.

Napoleon in Russia #lithuania

Ray Stone <rstone@...>
 

Between June and December 1812, Napoleon's army cut a
devastating path through today's Belarus and Lithuania on
the way to Moscow and back. This invasion caused a great
upheaval in those lands, chasing many of our ancestors >from
their homes.

Does anyone know of first hand accounts by citizens of those
areas describing the effects of the invasion?

Vilnius Records Unveiled in SLC #lithuania

EDENSARA@...
 

Fellow Litvaks,

I attended the SLC conference in July, but fell ill three days into the trip and spent the rest of the week in bed.

For this reason, I was unable to take advantage of the "newly released"
Vilnius records at the library. I do, however, have the printout of all
shtetls and film numbers that was made available to us.

The question is: Are these films now available for loan through local FHC's?

Thanks for your information,

Eden Joachim

EDENSARA@aol.com

MODERATOR'S NOTE: The films of Lithuanian Jewish vital records are indeed available for loan through local Mormon Family History Centers. We've heard a few reports of personnel at these local centers who were apparently unaware of these films. Make sure you let the local FHC staff know these are new microfilms.
