Hello,

I have posted on JewishGen, the viewmate section, the following. I hope
someone can help read them in the various languages they are in. See one
letter >from Talsin Courland. Postings are up for 7 days.

PAGES of an Autograph book of a 10 yr old girl before coming to America.

I have just posted 5 autograph album pages to the JewishGen site for
viewing. Some in Polish, Yiddish and German:

from Talsin Courland named Shulem Tobias to his son Henry.

Logoshin and Telekhany #belarus

Ari Itzkowitz <arii@...>
 

I am researching the BOBROW/BOBROWITZ family >from Logoshin. While Logoshin
and Telekhany seem to be two separate towns, I understand there are many
researchers (and even some maps!) who claim that it is the same town but
the name was changed to Telekhany. What is the real situation and if they
are separate towns, why have so many professionals decide they are the
same town? Any ideas?

Thanks,

Re: Other names than those searched #poland

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

All the AGAD records are expanded indices that include multiple
Surnames. All the Surnames in the index entry are searched when
you perform a Surname search of the JRI-Poland database. There
are no other "hidden" Surnames in an AGAD or any other record
index.

It appears that these names that you think are not part of the
Soundex code are actually included in the Soundex code for the
surname you are searching. There is a JewishGen Infofile that
explains Daitch-Mokotoff Soundex at
http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/soundex.html.

Hello all,

I've come across several instances where records appear in the
table with family names for which I did not search. These
names
would not be part of the Soundex code for the name I was
searching. These are AGAD records.

Is it possible that the family name I was searching for appears
somewhere on the record but not in what appears on screen?

Town of Banik in Galicia #galicia

Rony Shaham <rshaham@...>
 

Dear SIGers
I will very much appreciate any help to identify the present day name of
the town/shtetl referred to as "Banik (in) Galitzien" on the Hebrew
tombstone inscription posted on viewmate. To see it please click on the
link below
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=3082
I was not able to find Banik or Bonik or Bunik (the Hebrew/Yiddish
letters are "beit"-"alef"-"nun"-"yod"-"kof") or any reasonable
equivalent using the ShtetlSeeker, so I assumed it was the "Yiddish"
name of the shtetl and I posted the inscription on Viewmate and this
query on Galicia-SIG and Ukraine-SIG, to see if someone can help me with
the present day Polish/Ukrainian name of the town >from previous
knowledge or any written sources other than ShtetlSeeker.

archive of the postings to this Belarus SIG #belarus

Carlos Glikson
 

Larry Schenker asked "Is there an archive of the postings to this Belarus
SIG that goes back several years? If Yes, where is it located and can it be
searched?"

In http://www.jewishgen.org/ click - under Research - the link to
"Databases"

In the new page, under "General" click on "The JewishGen SIG Lists message
Archives - 1998-2003"

This will take you to "JewishGen SIG Lists Archive"
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~sigspop

"JewishGen SIG Lists Archive" contains "all messages posted to the JewishGen
Special Interest Group (SIG) Mailing Lists since July 1998". You may search
by keywords in all SIG lists or in a specific one. If you leave the 'word or
words' to be searched in blank, you get a batch list of up to 500 messages
for the selected date range. Instructions are given on the page.

I am not sure if the postings of the day are instantly available... I
believe they are added in small batches and the most recent postings take
some time to enter the archive. Perhaps somebody may clarify this.

Hope this helps!

Interestion materials on russian genealogy websites #belarus

Pavel Bernshtam <pavelb@...>
 

Hi!

I have found a number of interesting materials on russian language
genealogy sites.

The site http://petergen.com/spiski.shtml contains a lot of people lists
for various places, times, gubernias.

I have selected a number of them (not all), which contains jewish surnames:

1. Vitebsk gymnasia graduates 1808-1883
http://petergen.com/history/witgim.shtml
2. officials in Minsk gubernia 1900
http://petergen.com/history/pmin1900.htm#gub
3 Mogilev gymnasia graduates 1814-1909
http://petergen.com/history/moggim.shtml
4. Kharkov religious officials 1914
http://petergen.com/bovkalo/sp/charkov1914.html


All these pages in Russian,[MODERATOR NOTE: There is an English language
version of the home page] and I, unfortunatly, do not have a time to
translate/transliterate them, but these resources IMHO should be
included to the corresponding SIGs static pages.


BTW. I have fourd online translator/transilerator:

Re: Surname "Regensburg" #general

Joel Stearman <dpastear@...>
 

Hoping to obtain information regarding Moses Regensburg (could have been
"berg") husband of Jeanette Liffman father of Ludwig (Louis on
naturalization papers) and Edward.

I have gone as far back as the 1860 Census where all but Moses are
listed. The information I have so far is that they were >from Frankfurt
and arrived here in the late 1850's however I cannot seem to obtain
information regarding their departure >from Germany (Prussia at the
time.) I have searched the German to America with no success and they
came before Ellis Island was opened. Any ideas?

Eileen Regensburg

Sorry Eileen and Group:

I misread the year of arrival in Eileen's posting.

The Alpha index I cited only goes up to July 1826. The manifests cover
the period, so it would be necessary to have a tighter idea of the time
frame for arrival, in order to do a date-by-date, ship-by-ship search.

Maybe there is some date or ship information on the naturalization
documents which would help.
