(Ukraine) Re: Poltava--khazan or xazan #ukraine

Susan <puffin77@...>
 

Dear Group,
I am very much a novice researcher, but am trying to track down the
various threads of my family.

I'm writing in the hope that someone can enlighten me on the meaning of
a "family tidbit". My mother's great-grandfather, of whom we know
virtually nothing, was apparently known as "the blind khazan of
Poltava". His son, variously known as Louis ABRASHKIN or Louis ABROVSKY
(in the 1920 census) came to New York in 1906, and it seems, brought his
family over in 1914 or 1916 (difficult to read the census record). His
grandson, Barney/Barnett Brofsky, was born in Poltava in 1898 or 1899,
and was naturalized in Brooklyn in 1919.

Would someone kindly advise what a "khazan" (xazan?) is? I gather it
has something to do with his synagogue, but I'd love to learn more.

Also, I'd be grateful for any suggestions as to how to determine whether
the "Poltava" he's >from refers to the Ukrainian gubernia (as I suspect)
or a town by that name. On the census form, the name "Poltava" is
written as their birthplace, then crossed out and replaced with
"Russia".

Thanks in advance!
Best wishes,

Jewish agricultural colony: Orekhov #ukraine

steven weiss <szome@...>
 

I would very much appreciate it if anyone could translate for me any
information on the Jewish agricultural colony of Orekhov (Orechoff),
Yekaterinoslav Gubernia. I understand that the following two books might
have information on Orekhov:

"Yevreiski Zemlyedeltsi" (Jewish Agriculturalists) by Nikitin
(St.Petersburg, 1887).

"Khaklaim Yehudiim Bearvot Russia"
(Jewish agriculturalists on the Russian Steppe, Tel Aviv 1965).

Thank you,

Kiev Vedomosti #ukraine

ADAVIS <ADAVIS@...>
 

The Belarus SIG has had some success with the NY public library with these
sources.

It would be worthwhile to find out if they have these records on microfilm.
If not, they might be pursuaded to purchase them were the case made that
there was significant interest...

Just a thought.

Yeshivot in Volhynia #ukraine

Lillian Faffer
 

Reply to message number 10 >from Tish Shapiro inquiring about Yeshivot in
Volhynia- I am replying to entire list because I believe that the answer
will be of interest to many of the subscribers

There were no Yeshivot in the Ukraine >from the late 19th century on. My
grandfather told me that all of the Yeshivot were closed by an edict of
the Czar, (I forget the exact date of the edict, but I did check it out
in various history books) and because there were no local Yeshivot, he
was sent shortly after his Bar Mitzvah in June 1894 to study at Telz in
Lithuania. The trip to Telz >from the Ukraine took three days and two
nights by train, and he returned home only two times before immigrating
to the US in 1903.

VISSOTSKY family in Pinsk #belarus

Micheline GUTMANN <MichelineGUTMANN@...>
 

Dear all,

I recently subscribed to Belarus SIG. I did not before because
I always miss time for my own genealogy.

It is my first message to this forum.

I sent to Elsebeth the history of one part of my ancestor in Pinsk,
the VISSOTSKY family, and photos. I give here a very short abstract
a more complete one will probably arrive soon on Belarus website.
I also add the list of all the VISSOTSKYs of Pinsk I could get
from Censuses.
My great-grand father, Mosche VISSOTSKY was a carpenter in Pinsk
he married tree times. first my ggrandmother Dobruschka BREGMAN,
she died after 5 children. The second wife was her sister Lea
who was the widow of Moses JASELMAN. They had one son Shimon who
went to USA.

The first wife was probably a VISSOTSKY.
Mosche died in 1917 .

When I have more time, I'll write what all what I know of the BREGMAN
branch.

Re: RUBENS & CAHN in Johannesburg #southafrica

Louis Zetler <zetler@...>
 

I was the chairman of the Etz Chayim Hebrew Congregation in Berea,
Johannesburg for a few years. This congregation was established and
consisted mainly of German Jews and their descendents who arrived in South
Africa on a ship, the name of which escapes me at present, about 1938. Most
of the surnames mentioned in Shmuel's letter are familiar to me, but not the
individuals, as I went to Johannesburg only in 1976.

There was a Cahn family that I knew personally. The old generation have all
since passed on.
There was an elderly man Falk who probably passed away during the 80's who
was a member of the congregation. There is still an Advocate Rubens who
practices as such in Johannesburg, but I do not know if he is related.

If you can make contact with Gunter Sampson you may be able to get some
valuable info >from him. He was one of those that came on the ship that I
referred to above.
