Subject: World War I and Belarussian Jews

Re: In the Feb. 18 Digest, Neville Lamdan raised the question of why many
Jews disappeared after WW I.

In my husband's family, we were told that at least three people died in
1918-1919 of either flu or typhus, which they said was epidemic in and
around Slutsk at that time. I have no documentation on this--only family
lore.

The name of Chaim #general

dorothy rivers <dotvic@...>
 

Chaim Manaster asks a question about the combination of Chaim with
other names. I, too, would like an answer. My grandfather's name has
been Nathan on every document I've found. Now, I have his gravestone
interpreted and it says 'Chaim Natan".

Could we get the replies to Chaim Manaster on this discussion group,
please?

WWI in Belarus #belarus

Irene Newhouse <newhoir@...>
 

"Behind the Ice Curtain" by Dina Gabel is the story of one Belarussian
Jewish family's misadventures in WWI. [>from Lida, as it happens, hence my
interest]. Affluent merchants, they were
targetted by the new Soviet government when it took over, and ended up
being sent to Siberia. Dina survived to tell the story, but many, many
did not. So to the options list of 'fled to Poland', 'fled east into
Belarus', 'killed as civilian combat casualties', add 'murdered by the
Soviet secret police' & 'exiled to Siberia' -- note that entrepeneurs were
anathema to Communists, but that's just what many Jews were.

Also, some of my Lida relatives ended up in Moscow & St. Petersburg after
WWI. I'm not sure why or how.

Original Name Unknown #general

This is a problem that I think must be a common one.

My father left home in the Ukraine at age 12-14, 1887-88, the first of his
family to emmigrate. We think it must have been illegally to avoid the
army draft as there are no passenger records of it. He probably traveled
under an assumed name. (GREENBERG)
About 10 years later, he brought over all the rest of his family, they
also using his asuumed name.
I have used two different Ukranian researchers in the past two years with
absolutely no results using the only name we know, which is why we think
it must be an assumed name. He verbally always said that he came >from Kiev
Gubernia, no other information. His brother's two eldest sons, on their
marriage certificates in NYC state that their birthplace was Kamenitz
Podolsk! No records exist for them in KP. He always told us that after he
left home 1886, he worked in what we call a grocery store in the (a) city.
After arriving NYC, he worked in a grocery store. When he brought his
brother over, he set him up in a Grocery store! In the 1895 issue of Vsia
Rossia, I found three grocery stores, in three different cities in Kiev
Gubernia, all owned by people with the same surname, GRINBERG. No given
names or patrynomics.It is probable that if these were not relatives, then
he might have taken the that name but there is nothing to confirm or deny
it.Is there anyone out there who has a suggestion, or is this a total dead
end?

Cloning & Genealogy #general

glosonc@...
 

Dear Genners:
As I was watching 20/20 this past Friday on how they expect to have the
first cloned baby by December, I had a momentary panic attack. If cloning
really catches on in the future, how are we who are doing genealogy
supposed to deal with that? What program is out there that will have a
place on our charts say for the clone of our grandfather? What will we
write in for date and place of birth? Lets say someone will be cloning my
grandfather Lefkovits in the year 2005 and my original grandfather was
born in 1893, then at which generation level do I place my cloned
grandfather? In the 21st Century or the 19th? How are we going to
introduce these cloned relatives? Suppose your cloned great-grandmother
who is now 2 years old is out with you at a restaurant and someone says
"what a cute little baby, is that your daughter"? Imagine what it'll be
like when you respond, "no, this is my great-grandmother Regina, cloned."
Well, as you can see I only have questions. Anyone have any ideas on
how Jewish laws will deal with these scenarios? By the way what's the
Hebrew word for clone? I think that as a form of introduction of a cloned
person it will not be enough to say that this is Tzvi ben Jakov Dovid, but
something that will also include the Hebrew word for "the clone." Say,
Tzvi ben Jakov Dovid Ha Clone?
Best Regards,
George Losonci (Tzvi Hersch the original)

<< The program features Marian Smith, Historian at the Immigration and
Naturalization Service, Washington, D.C. Ms. Smith will take us through
the process she uses to complete genealogy research that involves difficult
family history issues >>


Wondering if anyone took notes at this meeting and they could summarize them
for the group -- or at least me. I have a naturalization problem that I have
been working on for more than 18 months now and may be just maybe something
in this presentation would help me. I am sure I am not alone on this one.

GOTTSCHALK, MELCHIOR #general

Stephen G. Esrati <stevsta@...>
 

Eureka!
After years of pestering people named MELCHIOR (because an ancestor was
married to Melchior Salomon MELCHIOR), my cousin Gerhard SONDER and I
have hit paydirt when we finally found Shlomo MELCHIOR in Israel, who
had a beautiful family tree going way back.
Through Shlomo, we also found a son of my second cousin, Julie
STEINBERG, who was the daughter of my grandmother's sister Therese
(Thea) GOTTSCHALK.
Julie's son, Uri, hebraized his name to SHAHAM.
What all of this means is that this Holocaust survivor, who thought he
had no surviving relatives, has suddenly acquired dozens of living
cousins, on several continents.
Meanwhile, thanks to the fact that novelist Paul Erdman used footnotes
in his "The Swiss Account," the Swiss banks have finally revealed the
names of all dormant account holders. My grandmother had an account.
Erdman told me that Nahum Goldmann and the World Jewish Congress used
his footnotes to track down the true history. Switzerland had repeatedly
denied that my grandmother ever had an account there.

Searching FRANKENBERG (Bigge-Olsberg and Montreal), HIRSCH (Berlin and
Dortmund), MEYER (Berlin, Provinz Posen), SCHLESINGER (Berlin),
GOTTSCHALK (stemming >from Orsoy near Moers), LEWIN (Neuenrade), ELSBACH
(Erwitte), BIERMAN (Amsterdam), STEINBERG (Dortmund), HERZ or HERZSOHN
(Neuenrade)
