If you have any information on are Synagogue or the Jews of Alytus
I would appreciate the help.
I have a good friend in Lithuania today. He is not in that city, and he
is not Jewish, but he has helped me in getting information. If you wish,
I could send you his e-mail and I think he is in Vilnuis.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Great Address, perhaps #general

Just to keep you all up to date with the "great address" I had that was to
provide me with information on my great grandparents >from Kirovoghad
(ROSENFIELD and WEITZMAN), I got a certified letter today. It only took 2
months and I rewrote to them stating that I had not heard >from them,
enclosing a copy of my Western Union bill and their sheet. The two
archives I received were letters in Polish stating that "research has not
identified the persons stated in my inquiry. Two reasons why are that
sweeping occupation of Ukraine by Nazi within the years of the was
resulted in documents destroyed and in the course of changes (emigration,
moves, etc) in life the modern spellings of surnames does not comply with
the archives in the Ukraine.

I can understand them billing me for the 39 hours that they researched,
however, I am annoyed that they charged me $14.00 twice, to translate this
standard report that they sent under 2 names. My mother treated me since
it was her grandparents, but I'm furious. A standard form to me is not an
archive and we should not be charged for translating it. The charge for
this entire fiasco was $130.

If anyone wants the address again they crossed out the zip code and
changed it:
Ukraine kiyv, 03146, 22 Zhmerinskya Str. Off 86.
Hope you are more successful than I.

NFatouros@...
 

In his message of 11-6-00, David Goldenberg asked for help in locating
"Myaskofka, Russia."

In his "Shtetl Finder Gazetteer" Chester G. Cohen has an entry for
Miaskifka or Mjaskowka. He says it is southwest of Kiev and southeast of
Mohilev Podolsk. A Rabbi appointed here was Efraim Stanislavski, born in
1855. Tobias David Zukerman, born here in 1891,later became a financial
analyst in New York.

No matter how I tried spelling it, I couldn't find an entry for Mjaskowka
(or Miaskifka) in my Columba Lippincott Gazetteer.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Henry CERF, birth in Berlin ca. 1758 #general

monsanto <monsanto@...>
 

Dear list,
On the West-Indies list there is a never ending thread about Henry Cerf,
presumably of Jewish descend, but later married in England in a Presp.
church., born in Berlin, Spandau or Potsdam. Question: is there for Berlin
a similar source like the Bevis Mark Records for London. I have looked on
the Jewishgen site and found information on 1812 for that area (but by then
he had already moved away), but would appreciate some help with this: i.e.
original sources, where available, books published etc. Thanks for any
help

Can you tell us what information is actually included in one of those
SS-5 forms? Just curious.

Neil

I sent away for 4 SS-5's in July. Within a month, I received 3 of
them. The last one has not arrived as yet and I think my request must
have gotten lost somewhere. I mailed the 4 requests in 4 separate
envelopes with 4 separate letters and 4 separate checks to: SSA, Office
of Central Records Operations, Attention: FOIA Workgroup, PO Box 17772,

I have recently found a relative in France who has family members (male)
whose first/given names are Igo and Halter.
Would anyone know the Jewish/Yiddish equivalents or the names that might
have been used in Eastern Europe for those names?

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: The name Bashe or Basha #general

Ury Link <uryl@...>
 

Dear Genners,
Amoz Chernoff asked:
Would anyone know whether the name Basha or Bashe was generally a man's
name? The individual bearing this name came >from Belarus in the early
1900's.>>>>

My answer is: According my knowledge the male name Basha ( Beit - Ayin -
Shin - Alef ) is a nickname to the Hebrew name Dov. Dov mean in English a
bear. This name Dov is not a Biblical name but a name that come in use in
the Middle ages (10 or 11 century) the word Dov is wel mention in the Bible
as a bear but not as a name. I think that the name Basha come out >from the
nickname Bar ( Beit - Ayin - Reish) and >from Ber to Barish (Beit - Ayin -
Reish - Yud - Shin ). This names are nicknames to Yissaschar and Dov. It is
a discusion if Dov is a name on itself or a nickname to Yissaschar ,like
Jehuda Arie or Binjamin Zeev. I think that all this names are independent
names.

Conclusion: Dov = Ber = Barish = Barsh = Bash = Basha or Bashe.

The are more nicknames that ending with a Sh ,I give few sample:

Mordechai = Mordush
Abraham = Abrush = Avrus = Abush
Binjamin = Binush
Jehuda = Leib = Leibush
Menachem = Manish
Uri = Feibish

Please remember all this names are male names . We find the name Basha also
as a female name as a nickname to the Hebrew Biblical name Bat-Sheva.

Best regards
