Hi Genners,
Some months ago a kind genner sent me the address for some Internet pages
that contained interviews with Jews >from Winnipeg, and stories of how
their families first came to that city.
I no longer know how to find these pages. If someone can provide the
site address, I would be very grateful.

RUBINSTEIN in Kiryat Gat, Israel #general

Yaacov Slizak <yslizak@...>
 

Dear Friends,

Looking for family of Nuta (or Nota) RUBINSTEIN. This person lived in
Kiryat Gat back in 1957 and her address was just "Kiryat Gat 204/5" -
probably the building number.

I will appreciate any information that helped to get to her or her family.
She was the submitter of Yad Vashem Pages of Testimony for some members of
my Slizak family in Lukow and Miedzyrzec Podlaski, Poland.


Sincerely,

Re: Winnipeg, Manitoba, history #general

Haviva Langenauer <havival@...>
 

Hi Genners,
I recently asked if anyone knew of a web address where I could find stories
of Jewish families and why they had come to Winnipeg. A number of genners
wrote to me, not with the information, but rather asking me to share if
someone sent the address to me. Here goes.
The address is www.jewishfoundation.org.
This is a website for the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba, and has a section
called Book of Life, that contains personal stories and photos.

Two thoughts come to me.
First, cast a wide-enough net for your search. I had been looking for
'Winnipeg' and the answer was under 'Manitoba'.
Second thought is that our Jewish Gen Digest readers do not disappoint. I
have always had wonderful responses, and especially having to do with our
Canadian friends. Thank you.

Re: Pottava #belarus

NFatouros@...
 

My question is this - can anyone tell me where Pottava, Russia was/is?
I've had a look on Jewishgen but am bamboozled at the variety of
spellings by soundex and need some expert guidance.


I suspect that "Pottava" was a garbled rendition of "Poltava," which is a
city and an oblast. The city is about 180 miles east southeast of Kiev and
north of Dnepropetrovsk. For its exact coordinates, Ms. Barnett should
check the Shtetlseeker at Jewishgen. She should also do a "search this
website" in the box provided at Jewishgen's main page, and she will probably
find still more about the town using the "" search engine. She might also
have a go at a "Poltava" search at www.jewishencyclopedia.com.

My 1962 Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer says the city was located on the right
bank of the Vorskla Rive, It was the agricultural center of a region rich
from sugar and wheat. In 1939 it had a population of 130,305.
However, Abraham Reiser, the person whose papers Ms. Barnett has just
received, may not have come >from the city, but >from some other town or
village in the Poltava oblast. So she should search for Abraham Reiser at the
EIDB where, it is to be hoped, she can view the image of Mr. Reiser actual
ship manifest where the name of his city or village might be noted. ( I
suspect there might have been more than one Abraham Reiser listed at the
EIDB.)

RIFKIND Family find #belarus

Alice Gutenkauf <agutenkauf@...>
 

Dear Listers

I thought I would share with you my most recent acquisition - over a year
ago I wrote a letter to the Archives in Riga, Latvia requesting information
on my RIFKIND family as my father had been born in Riga in 1900 and didn't
arrive in the States until 1903. I received a letter some time later asking
for $50, which I sent. (In a personal check by the way). Yesterday I
received a letter >from Irina Veinberga of the Latvian State Archives. It
gave me the following information:

Peisach son of Berka(probably Ben) RIVKIN(sic) aged 29 in 1900 from
Rogachev, Mogilev province, was married to Musha daughter of Leiba (maiden
name not stated) and their son Faiwish was born in Riga on March 17, 1900.
The family lived in 1900 at Gertrud Street 89-16.
We suppose that Peisach could easily be Philip as the checked up documents
do not show any other Rivkin family in these years in Riga.

My great grandfather's name was Ben, my grandfather was Philip, and my
father was called Faivel tho' his name in English was William. They came
from Rogachev according to my Aunt and I know my grandfather was a tailor.
My grandmother was born in Lithuania and here she was called Anna, so I
don't know what Musha would be or how Anna came to be but there are too many
similarities - it's the same family.

I never thought I would find anything - I am so excited.

Is there an Archive office in Rogachev and if so does anyone on the List
know the address. At least with the Yiddish names I might be able to get
somewhere. I have never been able to find anyone beyond my great
grandfather's name - I don't think he came here, I think he and my great
grandmother, whose name was Fannie HALPERIN, remained in Rogachev, but I
don't know for sure.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Abram Goodman & Boston synagogues #lithuania

Susan Tait Porcaro <Suetaitporcaro@...>
 

My husband's ancestor, Abram Goodman, emigrated >from Poland (according to
the 1900 census) in 1892 and lived on Ohio Street in Boston at that time.
His wife was Lillian and his children in 1900 were Yetta Krigsman (wife of
Isadore) , Annie and Solomon Goodman. I am wondering if there is a synagogue nearby that they might have attended. If so, and if it still exists, perhaps they might have records??

Thank you everyone, this list has been so helpful.

Radomyshl, Ukraine - upgraded site #general

Eli Kislyuk <elikis@...>
 

Recently I have fully upgraded the Radomyshl site, which was created
five years ago. The site is located on: http://radomyshl.lk.net
(JewishGen administrators were asking me to move the site contents to
their server; a few months ago I did it, but they are still linking from
ShtettlLinks Project to the above address, so meanwhile it is on lk.net).

The renewal site is redesigned and includes a lot of new discoveries.
Now it contains of eight parts: History, Images, Maps, Links, Holocaust,
Archives & databases, Memoirs & family stories and Genealogy.

I think, "Images" is most interest, it is divided into two other parts:
views and faces. In last one Radomyshl researchers are welcomed to send
their family photos in order to publish them on the site.

On my opinion, the page "Postcards" (see it in "Images") seems to be
very attractive. There you can find 16 restored postcards of Radomyshl,
which were published by my great grandfather Elya ZAYEZDNY about
100 years ago. Also you can find there a few Photo Galleries of modern
Radomyshl.

In "Memoirs & family stories" Radomyshl researchers are invited to tell
their family stories, which could be added on the site. There you can also
read my notes >from the interest meeting with 96-years-old former
Radomyshl resident Zina EISENBERG, who lived there until 1995.

Parts "Links", "Archives & databases" and "Genealogy" are enriched by
new and/or updated links. The new link to the 1895 list of Radomyshl
businesses, which was translated and compiled by JewishGen site,
is found in "Archives & databases".

I would like to apologize in advance for possible inaccuracy or any
mistakes(especially in my English) and will appreciate, if you correct
and update such mistakes by sending e-mail to me. By the way, my
e-mail address recently was changed. It is now: elikis@...

A New Site #general

Martha Lev-Zion <martha@...>
 

This site might be interesting. It is published by permission of the
Internat Scout Project >from the University of Wisconsin:

Centropa: Jewish Heritage in Central and Eastern Europe
http://www.centropa.org/mainpage/main.asp

A nonprofit organization based in Vienna, Austria, the Centropa group is
headed up by a team of historians, educators, photographers, and other
artists and scholars. The site contains a number of different oral history
and photographic archives, in addition to sections dealing with
contemporary Jewish life in the region and around the world. The basic
search options within each of these sections allows visitors to choose a
country of interest and to highlight certain themes (such as religious
figures or personal letters), so that the results will be customized
appropriately. An advanced search option allows visitors to look for
materials based on family surname and city. The site concludes with a
section that offers suggestions for eating in different restaurants around
Eastern Europe and with travel tips for the area compiled by Ruth Ellen
Gruber, who has published three books on Jewish Europe. [KMG]
