Andrew Blumberg <andrew.blumberg@...>
 

Hello,

The Bielsk Podlaski ShtetLinks site has been updated with new
materials.


Two more letters to President Hoover >from the children
of Bielsk have been added to the site. One is >from the
children of Jewish Orphanage Number 4 in Bielsk. The
other is >from the children of Kitchen no. 4, Siemiatycze,
province Bielsk, Grodno Land. Each letter consists of
hand-drawn artwork with a note to the President and a
signature page. Thanks again to Tomy Wisniewski for
translating the letters and to Mindy Gross for
translating the Yiddish signatures of the children.
The letters were provided through the courtesy of the
Herbert Hoover Subject Collection of the Hoover
Institution Archives.

Also added is the complete 1928 40th Anniversary Banquet
Souvenir Journal of the Bielsker Bruderlicher Unterstitzungs
Verein, which consists of 76 pages containing membership,
officers and directors lists, photos of the
organizers, ex-presidents, officers, and committee members,
a history of the verein, poetry, advertisements >from
members, memorials, and a few pages that are either
in Yiddish or Hebrew. Thanks to Josh Watsky, whose
great-grandfather was a founding member of the BBUV,
for help in making these materials available.

August 2003 proved to be a banner month as we added 14 updates and 31
new entries. In this effort we recognize our special volunteers for
August: Max Heffler, Mike Kalt, Sandra Krisch, and Judy Montel.
Without their help, we would not have been able to process these
translations in August.

It is our pleasure also to recognize a special translator, Morris
Gradel, who translated himself or coordinated the translation of 25
chapters >from the Pinkas HaKehillot, Poland, volume 7, which went
online this month. Last year in October he submitted a list of the
chapters he wanted to translate, which he submitted at one time at
the end of July. Our wonderful html team got them online in record
time. Congratulations, Morris.

Nolan Altman contributed the translation of 5 chapters >from this same
volume of the Pinkas HaKehillot. Thank you, Nolan.

Without the generosity and help of all translators and coordinators
of translations to the Yizkor Book Project we could not operate. Our

Re: how did the Nazis know who was Jewish #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

May I had an example to my previous reply ? One of my husband
uncles was arrested in 1942 in September 1942, so that another
member of that Jewish family : the family had a second home
with a gardener and this one denounced some members of that
family, hoping to become the owner of the house.That uncle
of my husband had a double nationality : French and Swiss.
Now, Swiss Jews were protected and couldn't be
arrested, since Switzerland was one of the "neutral"
countries during WWII. After his arrival in Drancy, that
man moved heaven and earth to get a certificate attesting
he was Swiss. The certificate arrived a few minutes before
the train left France. My husband's uncle was already in
the train when some policeman brought the document. They
had to release him immediately.

Need translation of /peh-shin-yod-tet-yod-kof/ #poland

Ronald D. Doctor <rondoctor@...>
 

In translating one of the Kremenets Yizkor Books, we have encountered
the word /pe-shin-yod-tet-yod-kuf/. It appears in the following context,
in a passage describing Polish rule in the inter-war years:

During the 1930s, the ruling party “Sanatsya” also started its
corrupt policy, based on threats and oppression, in Kremenets. The
government authorities started to intervene in the life of the
Jewish community, supporting aggresive public workers of their
choice and creating dissent among the Jewish population. All those
who opposed this policy were doomed to persecution; loss of their
livelihood, etc. With political oppression came economic oppression.
The Jews collapsed under the weight of taxes, the sources of their
livelihood were closed to them. The young men, forced to idleness,
were in decline. Under the influence of the authorities an
atmosphere of “Pashitik” penetrated our area. The life of a Jew,
walking alone at night in a street far >from center of town, was not
safe anymore; a worry that Kremenets’ Jews did not have for many
generations.

It doesn't appear to be a Hebrew or Yiddish word ... perhaps Russian or
Polish written in the Hebrew alphabet?

We would appreciate your help in translating this.

First Cousin Marriages and Kidney Disease #general

joeross1220@...
 

Without reading the entire article, I am not sure I agree with the
conclusion that Jews have less genetic disease than Arabs
because of fewer cousin marriages. (I also think it is odd to
reach this conclusion based upon one type of symptom, which could
have a number of causes).

In the "old country" marriages among Jews were frequently
arranged amongst first cousins or uncles and nieces. This is
one of the reasons Jewish genetic diseases moved rapidly
through the Jewish population. This practice ended because
of the transfer of population to the US, Western
Europe and Israel. With accompanying secularization and a
less insulated society, people could meet and marry anyone
they chose, and it was less likely to be a close relative.

Searching: Norbert Sinaiko or Synajko - Cleveland, Ohio #general

Rsns93
 

Hello -

I am searching for any information regarding an
ancestor >from Warsaw, Poland who immigrated to the
US in about 1908.

Norbert was a musician and he toured around the
United States on the Orpheum circuit. Very little is
known about Norbert except that he was a professional
violinist and in America played as a headliner,
"Norbert, the Russian Violinist" on the old Orpheum
circuit.

He never came to the west coast. In all probability,
he was never married. Norbert died in World War I,
possibly a victim of the flu epidemic.

Norbert Sinaiko (or spelled Synajko in Poland) came back
to the United States on October 1, 1919 on the ship
called the Royal George. His port of departure
was Southhampton, Southhamptonshire, England.
He was 33 years and 3 months old when he arrived in the
US and his place of residence in the US was Cleveland,
Ohio.

Norbert had lived in Cleveland, Ohio >from 1908 to 1919.

Any information that anyone can find on Norbert
in Cleveland or New York would be most appreciated.

Thank you.

Norbert Sinaiko (or spelled Synajko in Poland) came back
to the United States on October 1, 1919 on the ship
called the Royal George. His port of departure
was Southhampton, Southhamptonshire, England.
He was 33 years and 3 months old when he arrived in the
US and his place of residence in the US was Cleveland,
Ohio.

Norbert had lived in Cleveland, Ohio >from 1908 to 1919.

Any information that anyone can find on Norbert
in Cleveland or New York would be most appreciated.

Thank you.

Grodno Research Project #poland

Bialystoker
 

Dear Bialygenners:

As I have mentioned before, we will be cooperating with the
Belarus SIG on projects that benefit both groups. It is no
mystery that any Belarus project benefiting Grodno Gubernia
researchers will be of benefit to us. Belarus SIG Coordinator,
Dave Fox, has invited BialyGen to cooperate in an ongoing
project, which Dave described in his Belarus SIG Report from
the DC 2003 Conference. I have quoted a couple of extracts
from this message.
The first is about the Belarus SIG projects:

"In addition, there are other sources that are in
both the Grodno and Minsk archives that should
benefit most Belarus researchers, but which I am
not at liberty to discuss in detail at this time. You
will have to trust me and donate funds to the Belarus
general fund so we can get this project started. In
addition, we are about 35% percent complete on
another project that will benefit not only people
researching families >from Grodno gubernia, but also
people >from other areas in other gubernii. Just as the
Minsk 1912 marriage and divorce registers that are
now on line include information >from people born or
registered in all parts of Belarus, this new database
will also contain place of birth and place of
registration. However, we are short of funds to
complete this project."

This second extract is about the relationship with BialyGen:

"A new research group was formed for Bialystok area
researchers. This area was formerly part of Grodno
gubernia, most of which is now in Belarus, and is now
part of Poland. While the Belarus SIG is not looking for
data >from areas now in Poland, if data for Bialystok is
found among records we are researching in the Grodno
archive, we will either retrieve this data or notify the new
Bialystok Research Group. I spoke with the leader of this
new group, Mark Halpern, and told him that the Belarus
SIG was working on a project that included names from
Bialystok and that he should not duplicate our efforts,
since the data would be made available to him via the
All Country Database through the All Poland Database."

When has a Research Group in its first month of existence been
able to become part of a project that is, as Dave states,
already 35% complete. One of the most important reasons why
BialyGen was formed and the most important goal of the 40 members
who met in Washington was to gain access to Grodno Gubernia
records not available in Poland. This is our first opportunity.

Like almost all research projects, this one also involves outside
costs that must be funded to complete the project. If BialyGen
members are to benefit >from this project, we must also bear some
of the cost. I am asking that BialyGen members contribute.

BialyGen now has been established on JewishGen-erosity. JewishGen
will handle all administrative tasks involved in contributing and
all the funds will be dedicated to BialyGen research projects.
All contributions through JewishGen-erosity are tax deductible in
the US. You will find the BialyGen contributions page at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/Bialystokrrg.html. The
instructions for online or mail contributions are explained on
this webpage.

For this cooperative project with Belarus SIG, please designate
your contribution to "Grodno Archives Research Projects." You can
read a general description of this initiative by clicking the
link. Contribution are also needed for the BialyGen General Fund,
which will be used for other still unidentified projects.

JewishGen is providing BialyGen with this discussion group, with
a website, and with a means to collect and allocate contributions
that are tax deductible in the US. For this, they only require
that the results of our research, mainly data, reside in
JewishGen databases and other databases hosted on JewishGen. What
a bargain for us. In addition to your contribution to BialyGen
research projects, please also add a contribution to the
JewishGen General Fund, which will help keep all the great
JewishGen resources, including ours, available to Jewish
genealogists worldwide.

Please support our efforts.
