Address for Kamenets-Podolski #ukraine

Bobby Furst <bobby1st@...>
 

I have received records >from the 1895 census >from the Kamenets-Podolsk Archive, and specifically for the town of Orinin.

ARCHIVAL REFERENCE
Podolye Province Statistic Committee, 1895 First General Census of Russian
Empire, Kamenets district:
Fund 244, Inventory 1, file 19,

I have also received marriage, and divorce record of Jews in 1895 ( record is in both cyrillic and Hebrew) and list of dwellers in specific towns
from 1882.

address:
Kamyanets-Podilsky City-State Archives
Kamianets-Podilskii Derzhavnyi arkhiv
281900, Kamianets-Podilskiy
Frantsiskanska St. 14


The archive's holdings are spotty, they have records for some years for some towns and not others.

I was wondering if anyone knows or has an address for
Kamenets-Podolski. I'm looking for the birth/death and marriage
certificates for the LEITERMAN family who came >from Orinin Russia.
Since Orinin is no longer on the map, I'm guessing that all records
would go to the closest major city. Is this assumption correct. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,
Mikkie

MODERATOR'S NOTE: I assume that Mikkie is asking for the address of the Archives in
Kamenets-Podolsk. My understanding is that there are no records available for the time period of
1880-1914. Can someone provide more information?

I am very excited to see that there is a Yiskor Book for Sarny, Volyn. Can
anyone tell me if it has been translated into English and if it will
eventually appear on the web?

It's now 6 months since I ordered a record >from Warsaw, district IV, and
it's one month since JRI notified us that all back orders were being
cleared within 2 weeks. Still haven't got it.

Has there been special problems re. fumigating the files >from district IV?

My query has not yet appeared, but I suddenly feel very foolish at
having
asked how I could find out my ggparents first names. I obviously need to
get my grandmother's (or her siblings) birth certificate. Next time I
will
try and think a bit before letting my fingers run away with me.

You needn't be embarrassed, Judith. We were all beginners once and made
similiar mistakes! That is one of the reasons why it is very constructive
to join a local genealogy group!

I was very grateful to the people who took the trouble to reply to my
question as to why my ggfather would have spent some time in South Africa
but clicking on to the JewishGen pages this evening, I realise that if I had
taken the trouble to look at them the information was already there.

It has been quite a while since I studied these pages and find that so much
more helpful information has been added. In future I will look there first.

With thanks to everyone.

I would appreciate any help someone could give in translating a short
Yiddish postcard that was written to my great grandfather Joseph Sugarman,
an immigrant to London >from Vilna. It is written in 1910 by his new
son-in-law.

The card can be viewed as VM121 in Viewmate, on the link below

While the town of New Square is indeed as close to a Shtetil as one can get
today, and is indeed named after the city of Skver, it is not an actual
transplanted city.
The town of New Square was founded in the 1950's by Grand Rabbi Yaakov Yosef
Twersky, who although was the son of the Grand Rabbi of Skver, actually was
the Grand Rabbi of Kolorash before the war. He actually later lived in
Bucahrest and in Brooklyn, NY before establishing New Square. Since the vast

majority of the original followers of Skver were either killed during the
war or were unable to emmigrate under communism, there are very few members
of this community that actually trace their way to Skver, Ukraine.
Though they have gone back to Skver sevarel times, and recently actually
bought off and are rebuilding the old Schul in Skver, Ukraine -
unfortunately they would not have any lists or other archival matereials
from Skver in the Ukraine.
There are more than one hundred and sixty Chasidic groups named after
towns in Europe, and though they have only limited hard genealogical data,
they often have a very important historical story to tell, especially since
nearly everyone researching the Ukraine probably had at least one Chasidic
ancestor.
Any member who wishes to follow up any particular group should feel free
to contact us at the Institute. We do not charge any fees for helping
researchers. It can however take some time untill we respond.

Dear Genenrs,
This is to express my gratitude to all the respondents to my question about
ships >from Bremen. Again, I got some three dozens of responses with various
suggestions. The best one was to check the Cimorelli web page at
http://www.cimorelli.com/safe/shipmenu.htm . It solved my problem at this
stage.
Thank you all for your input.
P.S. If I may add, several months ago, I stumbled on Cimorelli page,
scrolled it up and down, printed out some ship descriptions, but when I
wanted to find ships >from Bremen, I did not think about this page... Here's
a reminder again, one kopf is good, but two (or 30) are better.

Sieff #southafrica

eniale@...
 

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of some
information on Sieff, possibly Ziv, who came to South Africa sometime in the
late 1800's early 1900's. My information is sketchy, but this is my great
grandfather. Family legend has it that he came >from Estonia or Lithuania to
England, put his son (my grandfather) and possibly another son on a boat to
Balitimore, Maryland. My great-grandfather then came to South Africa and
started a taxi company in Johanesburg, stayed for a while and then possibly
returned to his native land. My information is quite sketchy and I'm just
getting started, so any directions, advice, etc. would be most appreciated.

Thank you
