Last year while I was visiting the Bialystok area, I took a side
trip on my way to Sokolka and saw the village of Palestyna, which
is very near the Belarus border. What was this town? In his book,
Jewish Bialystok and Surroundings in Eastern Poland, Tomasz
Wisniewski explains that Palestyna, Kolonia Izaaka, and Kolonia
Chanaan were three Jewish agricultural colonies established about
1850. Apparently, Palestyna is the only one that still exists.
Today, it appears to be a very poor farming community with only
dirt roads leading to the village.

If I recall correctly, I was told that these three colonies were
setup to train Zionists to farm -- sort of a training ground for
Kibbutzniks.

Does anyone have any more information about these Jewish
Agricultural colonies?

Genealogy Club. He has been an administrator for many years at the LDS
Family History Center in North Caldwell, NJ. Bill has also taught several
adult education classes in genealogy.

Russian death record translation needed on Viewmate #general

Rachel Unkefer <runkefer@...>
 

I have a Death record >from the Suwalki archive >from 1878, which is
written in Russian, in old-style handwriting. One person looked at it
for me and came up with completely different parents' names >from what
the index on JRI-Poland says. I'd like to get a second or even third
opinion. The town is Lazdei (appears as Lozdzee on the record). I can
supply you with a larger copy of the document if it will help. Please
reply privately--not to the list. Thank you in advance.

Bukaczowce Success Story #galicia

Linda Cantor <lincan@...>
 

Thought I'd share my genealogical success story with you. My family hails
from Bukaczowce and I have obtained whatever records are available, both
from Lviv and >from Warsaw. But one of my cousins, who is a survivor from
Bukaczowce, told me that he thought my great grandmother came >from Bursztyn.
So I made a large enough contribution to the JRI-Poland/Polish State
Archives AGAD Project for Bursztyn that would entitle me to get the files
before they are made public.

Two years later, I finally received the Excel file for Bursztyn, and I hit
the jackpot. Not only did I find records for my great grandmother but for
many other family members because the Bursztyn files contain many Bukaczowce
records. I counted 830 birth records, 549 death records, and 46 marriage
records.
