Re: Location of Meretz #general

NFatouros@...
 

In her message dated 01-16-01, Henrietta Moed Roth asked about her
brother-in-law's ancestral town "Meretz."

Assuming that this was the correct town, I found a town entered
as "Mertch, Meretz, and Meretch" in Chester G. Cohen's "ShtetlFinder
Gazetteer." He says the correct name is "Merkine," that it is south of
Kovno and that it is mentioned in the memorial (yizkor) book for Lita.
He also lists a few names of prominent people >from this town.

No matter which name I looked for, I did not find an entry for this town
in my 1962 Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer. But I did find a page of
description of the town, its history, and a list of prominent people, in
the Nancy Schoenberg and Stuart Schoenberg's "Lithuanian Jewish
Communities."

Re: Passenger Listing #general

"Errors" not only appear on Passenger lists but also on death
certificates , social security applications and census records. Some
times the discrepancy is due to a misunderstanding of the person making
the entry but some are intentionally done by the person whose record is
involved. For various reasons some lie about age, alter spelling of
names >from time and simplify a response to to avoid a complex or
embarrassing explanation.

I hate to throw a damper on this connection, but naturalization
records are notorious for having incorrect information. I was doing
a search for someone for April 7, 1903 and three ships they said
their family came on at that time. I finally gave up looking for the
ships and went to the soundex indexes. I finally found the person
and lo and behold the April 7 was rightbut the year was l904.

There is no guarantee if any or part of the information you have
on the naturalization papers are incorrect.

LESNIK Family of Dubossary #general

Avenfla
 

I am researching the Lesnik Family of Dubasari as well as building the
Shtetl Site. In my search I have several photos of relatives that I
cannot identify. They have previously been posted to viewmate and will be
visable on the Shtetl Site within the next month or so.

I have also come across other names in the family and would like to find
anyone related to them.

Feigel Greenberg daughter was Elka Ruchel possibly Kravitsky. Anyone with
Kravitsky family >from Bessarabia. Also Hannah Kittova born in Bessarabia.

Anyone who might have information that they would want to submit to the
Dubossary Site can email me privately.

I would also like information on anybody who is familiar with a group
called Yupitz. They were a secret active youth group in the early 1900's
in Dubossary.

Thank you in advance for your help

Rypin vs. Plotsk #general

Michael Steinore <msteinor@...>
 

Eleanor Gordon wrote:
I know that Ripin and Plotzk are in the same general region, but I do not
know the relative size of the towns or villages. Was one of them much
larger than the other, so that a person might refer to the village if he
was being exact and to the town if he wanted to refer to a general area?
A good question and a common challenge because of the hierarchy of
administrative divisions and the system of naming them in Russia and
Russia Poland: gorod (~ city), uezd (~ county), gubernia (~ state)

At least toward the end of the 19th century, the gorod/city of Rypin
was located within the uezd/county of Rypin, within the gubernia/state
of Plotzk.

The gorod/city of Plotzk was located in the uezd/county of Plotzk in
the gubernia/state of Plotzk. Therefore, without other documents,
you can't say for sure whether these references are to a city or a county,
or in the case of Plotzk, a state. But Rypin is the more specific reference
because at most it was a county, one with a smallish population of Jews.
According to Evreiskaya Entsiklopedia, based on 1897 data, Rypin
the gorod/city had a population of 5,961 of which 1,732 were Jews. Rypin
the uezd/county had a population of 69,930 of which 4,367 were Jews.
In 1872-3 the population figures were likely less.

The two cities of Rypin and Plotzk were roughly 40 miles apart.
