Gussie as name for a woman #general

Bklyn Nyker <bnyker@...>
 

To all who responded, a big thanks.

I am just wondering if Agusta, as some suggested was a name given in
Belarus, where she was from.

I am wondering if Gustava was/is a name for a woman in Russian?

Any responses please reply to: az61brook@aol.com

Thanks,

Re: GileviCh---> Gallewitz #general

sallybru@...
 

Both Galewitz and Gilevich are representations of a Russian or Polish name
in English letters. -vich and -witz both represent the patronymic ending.
The vowel variation is common. You know what the name sounded like, and
both spellings are attempts at that sound.

One of the first rules of genealogy is that spelling doesn't count. You
have to consider any possible mangling of the name when you look at
records. Especially when translating >from one language to another, and
especially with clerks who wrote down whatever they thought was good,
there will be big variations in spelling. My Mincho ancestor was written
as Minckle in one record, so just consider what the sound might be similar
to.

So, in brief, yes, Gilevich and Gallewitz could be the same name.

Andre Kostelanetz #general

Joe Ross <jaross115@...>
 

The message regarding Andre Kostelanetz's origins interested me. My
mother's first cousin married his great niece. She was the grandaughter
of Andre's brother.

The family was very Hasidic, and I recall being introduced to his brother
while he was praying at the Wailing Wall one Friday evening about 25 years
ago. I recall my cousin saying that the family had lived in Jerusalem for
many generations, but I could be wrong.

In any event, when Andre married Lily Pons, who was not Jewish, they no
longer had contact with him.

Ukraine Archives Infofile #ukraine

haflo <haflo@...>
 

I need a conscientious, self-motivated volunteer to create an infofile of
the contact addresses of the Ukrainian archives (state & regional), with a
brief description of their record holdings. Miriam Weiner's book "Jewish
Roots in Ukraine & Moldova" contains a lot of this information, & makes an
excellent reference source. There is also material on the WWW that can be
of use.

The finished product will become very important as we continue on in our
researches for the SIG. It will be available to everyone through the
website, & provide the locations which can be contacted.

Please step forward & help us simplify our "entre" into the Ukraine
archives. All of our progress depends on your generous voluntary assistance!
