IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

We are looking for some Galician records which may be in Uzhgorod.
Does anyone have experience trying to get records them by
correspondence. Considering that it's in present day Ukraine, but
quite close to Hungary, Slovakia and Rumania, what are our chances
to communicate with them efficiently in English or Polish?

Please respond directly if you have recommendations on researchers who have worked in the Uzhorod archives. VK

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.

The Showtime movie is not by the Chambon Foundation. Indeed, Pierre

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.
