Jeff - Hi. Recently I bought my grandson Benjamin a book called Folk
Tales >from the Soviet Union. It came out in 1986, and the publishers,
Raduga Publishers, 17,Zubovsky Boulevard, Moscow, USSR (obviously, now
NOT USSR, but Russia) write "Please send us all your comments". One of
the delightful stories in the book is called "Teeny-Tiny" retold by
Alexander Yakimovich, a Byelorussian Folk Tale. In it, an old couple who
cannot have children, decide to gather and hatch eggs, so they would at
least have baby birds, The old man gathers 31 eggs, and the old woman
sits on them. After three weeks, not baby birds, but baby boys were
hatched out of them. The youngest (by which time they ran out of names)
was simply called Teeny-tiny because he was so very small, and he is the
hero of the story. After they grow up, and many adventures, Teeny-Tiny
comes to a forest where turning round and round stood a little hut on
chicken feet. Inside, who should he see but "Baba-Yaga the leg of stone,
a very, very old and wicked crone. She was stretched on the floor, her
head near the door, and so twisted was she that she seemed to be
kneeling, for her nose reached the garret and her mouth touched the
ceiling." This Baba Yaga has 29 daughters, so she sends him off to her
sister, who is also a Baba Yaga. She has 30 daughters, and sends him off
to meet her other sister, also Baba Yaga. The story continues with how
the third Baba Yaga has 31 daughters, and they are to marry all the
brothers, but T-T's talking horse tells him You think to be wed, but
you'll all die instead. The story goes on and on, and eventually he has
to outwit the tsar, the Baba Yagas (who own all kinds of magic
instruments which he must capture or die).The story runs for 54 pages,
so I obviously cannot repeat it here. But the book might be available
from the publisher, or in a children's library. I hope your
correspondent finds this interesting and useful. Have a happy and kosher
Pesach. Esther Zunenshine Handelman >from Montreal (by the way, I bought

Looking for Teodoro SREBNIK, hiw wife Dina KURIAN and their children in - La Plata, Argentina #latinamerica

Bernie Hirsch <bernie06@...>
 

Hello,

This is an update to a query I sent out a few weeks ago, looking for
my great-great-uncle Teodoro SREBNIK and his children. I have just
received some new information on Teodoro and his wife and children, so
I want to see if anyone knows how I might contact these people. None
of the websites or Jewish organizations in Argentina have been
helpful, and they have told me to hire a private investigator.

Then just yesterday a fellow Jewish researcher told me this:

An interesting thing for those who are looking for Srebnik family is
that the best friend of Iosef SZWEDZKI was Teodoro SREBNIK, who lived
in
Uruguay and emigrated to Argentina in 1950 with all his family. He
died in the 80´s and survived him, his wife (Dina KURIAN) and three
sons (Jorge, Lili and Estela, all married and with sons).
I searched the Argentina telephone directory and found one possible
link:

KURIAN LILIANA S
(11) 4226 -8164 PHONE
Calle 11 3497 PB CASA
BUENOS AIRES-Berazategui
Perhaps this is the daughter, Lili, referenced above, if she changed
her last name to be that of her mother's.

Any help finding/contacting these children or his wife for me, would
be very kindly appreciated. I would also like very much
to find where Teodoro is buried and get a photo of his gravestone and
a copy of his death record, so that I
can see who is parents are exactly.

The original letter that I sent out is below.

Warm regards,
Bernie Hirsch

=======================

I am writing this letter to try to locate any records on my ancestor,
Teodoro SREBNIK, who lived in Montevideo, Uruguay in the 1900s. He
was born in the early 1900s in Vasilishki, Lida Uezd, Vilna Gubernia,
Belarus (was Lithuania) and immigrated to Montevideo.

He had 4 brothers (Abraham, Gus, Philip, and Isaac SILVERMAN) and 2
sisters (Gertrude and Sophie SILVERMAN), who immigrated from
Vasilshki, Lithuania to Brooklyn, New York, United States. In
September 1959, he went to visit them in New
York. On the way to New York his plane crashed and he was left
wandering in the jungle for a few days and caught some awful jungle
disease, before he eventually arrived in New York. Also, Teodoro's
brother’s sister-in-law, Bessie Silverman, went to visit him after
1962. At some point he moved to:

Ciudad de La Plata, Calle 1 Nº 82, Prov. de Buenos Aires,
Argentina

The father of Teodoro SREBNIK was Jankel Eli SREBNIK. I have
a photo of Teodoro and another photo of his father Jankel. I can
send these to anyone who might be able to help me find
Teodoro, his children, or any information about Teodoro.

The last address that we have for Theodore is:

Ciudad de La Plata, Calle 1 Nº 82, Prov. de Buenos Aires,
Argentina

from sometime after 1970 or thereabouts. I am told that he had 3
children, and at least one of them was a boy.

Your kind help is very much appreciated!

Re: Looking up something in the census #general

Steve Gabai <sgabai@...>
 

From: "Rick Spears" <rspears@gate.net>
Marie, You may be able to go to your main library in your town and look it
up. Start with the 1920 Census. Have the librarian help you find the
soundex
spelling of the name which will look something like: K-122 etc. Then look
in
the census book for the correct microfilm for that particular soundex. The
microfilm will be an alphabetical index of each soundex name. Find the
correct soundex on the film, there may be many on one film and search for
the last name you are looking for and then the first name. If you are lucky
to find the correct name, THEN you can go seach the actual census using the
information on the index to find the exact microfilm that has his census.

Rick Spears

No, the soundex is not in alphabetical order. Once you find the microfilm
that has your soundex code, you have to scroll to the code - and then it
goes in alphabetical order by first name, not last.

But I'm not sure what Marie means about looking up an address in the census.
If you just want an address, you can find directory's >from whatever year
you want - on microfilm.

The 1920 census is indexed by soundex code, so you can find anyone's census
- for that year, and 1900 which is fully indexed as well - quite easily.

For most of the States, 1910 is not indexed and you'll have to know the
persons address to find the census. So you'll have to find a directory and
"look up" the person you're looking for.


But then you'll needed to find out what E.D that address is located in. For
Brooklyn, I would guess the NY public library would have those ED's and
maybe the the Fed. Archives on Varick St.

I know that this only distantly related to genealogy, but I hope you will
nonetheless publish this message. National Public Radio is currently running
a series about Jewish Radio in the period in the 1920's and 1930's. These
are based on acual recordings of the programs on radio stations, probably
mostly in New York. These contain Yiddish music of this time, ads for
products that immigrant Jews would have been interested in, Jewish soap
operas and more. I heard the first program today, Tuesday, the 19th of March
and I was very moved by this glimpse into another lost world, the world of
Jewish immigrants. This series will last for 9 weeks on each Tuesday. There
is also an announcment of this on NPR.org.

New Book from YIVO/Yale #general

Sandra and Donald Hirschhorn <donsandyh@...>
 

"The Last Days of Jerusalem of Lithuania: Chronicles >from the Vilna Ghetto
and the Camps, 1939-1944" is now listed on The JewishGen Mall for
pre-publication sale. This is the long-awaited English translation of the
Yiddish diaries of Herman Kruk, a Bundist activist >from Warsaw, who fled to
Vilna at the beginning of World War II.

Kruk, who organized and oversaw the library of the Vilna Ghetto, also played
an active role in several of the ghetto's social welfare and cultural
organizations. Kruk, along with poet Abraham Sutzkever and others, secretly
worked to rescue and hide many rare books and artifacts >from the Nazis.
Like Emanuel Ringelblum in the Warsaw Ghetto, Kruk was a resolute chronicler
of day-to-day life under the Nazis with full awareness that he might not
live until the war's end. Thankfully, his diary has survived to reveal the

Re: Looking up something in the census #general

Rick Spears <rspears@...>
 

Marie, You may be able to go to your main library in your town and look it
up. Start with the 1920 Census. Have the librarian help you find the soundex
spelling of the name which will look something like: K-122 etc. Then look in
the census book for the correct microfilm for that particular soundex. The
microfilm will be an alphabetical index of each soundex name. Find the
correct soundex on the film, there may be many on one film and search for
the last name you are looking for and then the first name. If you are lucky
to find the correct name, THEN you can go seach the actual census using the
information on the index to find the exact microfilm that has his census.

Its not as hard as it sounds...

How do I go about looking up an address in the US census? I want to
check on an address in both 1910 and 1920. I would also like to look up
2 surnames in those years. The address is in Brooklyn.
Thanks to everyone for the help of late, I am fortunate to have found
this group, and am incredibly lucky that there are so many knowledgeable
and helpful members!

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen New Book from YIVO/Yale #general

"The Last Days of Jerusalem of Lithuania: Chronicles >from the Vilna Ghetto
and the Camps, 1939-1944" is now listed on The JewishGen Mall for
pre-publication sale. This is the long-awaited English translation of the
Yiddish diaries of Herman Kruk, a Bundist activist >from Warsaw, who fled to
Vilna at the beginning of World War II.

Kruk, who organized and oversaw the library of the Vilna Ghetto, also played
an active role in several of the ghetto's social welfare and cultural
organizations. Kruk, along with poet Abraham Sutzkever and others, secretly
worked to rescue and hide many rare books and artifacts >from the Nazis.
Like Emanuel Ringelblum in the Warsaw Ghetto, Kruk was a resolute chronicler
of day-to-day life under the Nazis with full awareness that he might not
live until the war's end. Thankfully, his diary has survived to reveal the
horrors of that time to future generations.

This new English-language edition, published jointly by YIVO and Yale
University Press with assistance >from the Nusach Vilne Society, has been
edited by Professor Benjamin Harshav, Blaustein Professor of Hebrew and
Comparative Literature at Yale, and translated by Barbara Harshav.
