Anatevka & Yehupets #general

shirley pencer <scpencer@...>
 

Dear Group Members:
The question of the real name of Sholom Aleichem's fictional Anatevka has
come up as a topic of another discussion group, with several different
replies; I am posting my reply as it is of interest to the Ukraine SIG.
While looking through one of the Shtetl Finder books, I came across the
notations that Sholom Aleichem referred to existing places in the Ukraine
with pseudonyms. The fictional name of Yehupets was his name for Kiev; the
town of Anatevka was his name for Boyarka.

I was intrigued, as my maternal ancestors come >from Boyarka, found on
contemporary maps, just southwest of Kiev, in the Kievskaya Oblast. If
anyone has any information on this place, I would be grateful to learn
of it. I am seeking vital records, which appear to have survived from
Boyarka. A Soviet emigre relative accessed his mother's birth certificate
of 1902 >from somewhere near there in 1978, but couldn't specify how or
where. Also, if anyone could advise how to contact the Boyerke
Landmanschaften listed in the cemeteries of Long Island, would be very
helpful in my research.

Intended location for Anatevka (>from Fiddler on the Roof)

Sholom Alechem was >from Pereyslav,
Actually, Sholom Aleichem never wrote of Anatevka. The village he wrote
about was Kasrilevke. Anatevka was a name made up by Joseph Stein who
wrote the book for the show.

Death at sea #general

DStern13@...
 

During my research I have come across a question which I can not answer:
When a Jewish passenger / sailor died at sea on long routes what happened
to his (her) body? Gentiles received a sea funeral, but what about the
Jews?

Can someone help?
Thank you!!

Re: Showtime Movie on Varian Fry rescuing French Jews to air on April 22, 2001 #general

The Showtime movie is not by the Chambon Foundation. Indeed, Pierre
Sauvage who is preparing his film on Varian Fry has some misgivings
about his production and has expressed this on another Listserver.

Daughter of Jack BENNY (Benny KUBELSKY) #general

Crumper10 <crumper10@...>
 

I am trying to get a writing address for the daughter of the legendary
comedian Jack Benny.

As it happens, my cousin Julius Sinykin was the best man at Jack's
wedding. Jack was actually married in the apartment of my cousin Julius.

I have some photos that I would like to share with Jack's daughter and
I would like to know if she has any photos of the wedding with Julius and
Jack together.

Anyone with information on how to reach Jack's daughter and her name,
please contact me. Thanks.

Searching: A.A.FREUDENFELD - Davenport, Iowa #general

Crumper10 <crumper10@...>
 

In 1917, there was an A.A. Freudenfeld living in Davenport, Iowa. I am
seeking any information regarding this person.

It would be helpful to know where this person lived in Davenport in 1917,
the name of his wife (if he was married), and the names of any children
he may have.

This person passed away in Davenport many years ago (year unknown) so it
would also be helpful to know the name of the main Jewish cemetery in
Davenport so that I could call them to see if he is buried there.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
