Re: Where is Woronce, Russia? #general

Jerome Breslaw <gilbert6910@...>
 

With respect to the location of Woronce, Russia, the National Imagery and
Mapping Agency's (NIMA) GeoNet lists a populated place with the variant
spelling Woroncyn at 50 deg 55 min N lat/24 deg 53 min E long. Currently
that places it in Ukraine's Volynskaya Oblast'.

Near Woroncyn is a town named Turchin which sounds a lot like Tul'chin.
Turchin appears on an Ukrainian language roadmap that is found at InfoUkes
on the 'net. The index is C2. It lies WNW of Lutsk and SSE of Kovel'.

A look at an 1882 map of Eastern Galicia shows Lutsk a short distance
inside Kongress Poland (Russian Poland). That makes the Polish Woroncyn
and Woronce, which could be Ukrainian or Yiddish, strongly-related cognates.
Neither appear on the 1:1,000,000 roadmap, however.

Turchin, spelled Torchin in a Rand McNally International Atlas, is about 90
miles NE of Lviv, a few miles WNW of Luck (the proper, Polish, spelling of
Lutsk) and 50 or so miles >from the Polish-Ukrainian frontier.

Mr Goodman suggests Voronezh, a famous city. GeoNet shows 4 places named
Voronezh. All of them range >from 39 to 82 degrees E longitude, along the
51st parallel of N latitude, a long way >from centers of Jewish life.

Woroncyn, then, represents a high likelihood for Da Place.

"Uncle" KATZIN #southafrica

"Uncle" KATZIN (?Katzine or Kazine) was associated
with Nannucci Cleaners in South Africa. He was a
brother of my gt gt grandmother Etta Katzin( of
Plunge, Lithuania)
Amongst his children were Alfred KATZIN, an important
person in the UN
and Olga KATZIN, who wrote for the 'New Statesman@ in
London.
His other Children were Fred(KITSON), Winnie, Hilda,
Norah and Herbert........I do not know what they did
as a profession.
Can anyone supply me with Uncle Katzins first name?

South Africa Births Database #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Just a few helpful hints for the blurb of the South Africa Births Database:

1. A date range for the records covered should be provided.

2. A further discussion of what the dates actually represent would be
helpful since American and South African dates are written differently.

3. The year should always be written out in full in order to provide
capability for correct sorting.

Without a more detailed explanation, I would assume that the date given in
the following birth was December 22, 1901:

JEDEIKEN Alon Lianne GOLDSMITH 22-Dec-01 F Noa Lily Syd & Vivienne Lennon
C. T.

This would be a totally incorrect assumption even if I determined that it
was December 01, 1922, as the parents were born in 1961 and 1962.

My second and probably correct assumption would then be that it is probably
December 22, 2001.

Translators needed for the JewishGen International Desk #southafrica

Susana Leistner Bloch
 

Dear Friends,

The Jewishgen International Desk has been a great success. We have
translated and posted messages on behalf of Genners who do not speak /
write English and our outreach programs in different parts of the world
have helped researchers enter their surnames / towns of interest in the
Jewishgen Family Finder (JGFF).

Our volunteer translators are overburdened with the sheer volume of mail
and need help. If you can translate >from another language to English or to
another language >from English, please consider being part of our team. At
the moment our most critical need is for Italian and Spanish but we do need
all languages.

Hope to hear >from many of you....

Good Day,
Using the Ellis Island website (and other sources) I've traced my family back
to Melitopol, Ukraine (I believe. It wasn't spelled "right" on any of the
documents, but it matches the soundex test).

Can anyone help me find a synagogue contact in Melitopol, a way to search for
records in Melitopol, or a way to search for the surname Klubok in Melitopol?


Thanks in advance,
Marty
