Re: Vileika Uyezd Project - 1850 Radoshkovich Revision List #general

In my posting announcing the the Radoshkivich 1850 Revision List, I
indicated that Revision Lists prior to 1834 were in the Minsk archive.
Actually, pre-1834 Revision Lists for the Vileika uyezd are in *both* the
Vilna and Minsk archive according to the Roots to Roots website. Sorry for
any confusion this may have caused.

Shalom, Ayelet,

I'm afraid I can't help you at all with your enquiry about the ? Phoenix (in
English?) film production company; but I am writing to let you know that I
am a relation of the owners of the Apollo Theatre in Warsawa which operated
from the 1920s and during the War.
One of the sons of the owners, Robert Kronenberg was very interested in the
technical side of cinema and worked for the Seven Arts Company in Europe. He
died in Hollywood (where else?) in 1996. If you ever come across anything
about these, please get in touch with me.

I have also noted Dr Marius Loeffler's response to your question - maybe if
he lived in
Warsawa he might reemember something about the Apollo Theatre.

Good luck,

New to list- #romania

Elaine Bush <erbush@...>
 

Hello,

I am investigating a possible family tie to Romania. My family REST
was reportedly Sephardic in origin.

They left Lithuania / Latvia in the late 1800s for the US and South
Africa. The family story is that they did not have a last name until
forced to take one in Lithuania. We have had great difficulty
researching the origins of the last name-- REST / RESHT. In searching
the available databases, my family is the only family in the Lithuanian
region with the last name of REST / RESHT. I know that very often
families took as a last name their ancestral home. One thought has
been that it originated >from the Iranian town of Rasht. But in
searching the shtetlinks site, I came across a town called Rest in
Romania. It is about halfway between Bucharest and Calarasi.

(As you can imagine, it is very difficult doing internet searches for
the name of Rest...).

I became intrigued when, on further reading, I found that there was a
strong Sephardic presence in this area of Romania and that Romania was
located on a route used by merchants to travel to Lithuania / Poland.
One of my family members was a tinker, they were all apparently
itinerant merchants before arriving in Lithuania.

They settled in the town of Plunge (Plungian) in Lithuania and also
spent some time in Latvia (Riga, Libau). While living in Plunge,
some members of the family apparently forged a working alliance with
Prince Oginski who ruled over the area.

I am looking for any insight into this family picture..how I might find
out more information on the town of Rest...

Thanking you in advance,

WOLINSKY's in Palestine/Israel #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

I'm searching for descendants of two WOLINSKY brothers. They were born in
Boguslav (not far >from Kiev) sometime between the 1860's and early 1870's,
sons of Ephraim & Rachel. The family moved to Odessa circa 1895.

Of the seven brothers and sisters, five immigrated to Alexandria, Egypt
circa 1898, as young men and women. One sister then went to Palestine in
1900, then to Melbourne, Australia. One sister to Palestine a bit later,
then to Italy, then to America. One died in the Kishinev pogrom. One
immigrated directly to America.

The two brothers in question:

Yankel: One cousin speculated that he went to Palestine as early as the
1880's, although I suspect >from other information that he, too, went to
Alexandria in the late 1800's. In Palestine, he was an engineer in water
power and irrigation, and is said to have worked for for the Turkish
government (?) in the Turkish colony. He had two sons. He was born in the
early 1860's and is said to have died in Palestine circa 1922. One
grandiose family rumor says that he accompanied the Zionist Theodore Hertzl
on his first trip to Palestine. Another, that one of the sisters had an
affair with Hertzl.

Laib: He was born in the early 1870's. I don't know anything else about him.

I know that names often changed in Palestine, and later in Israel. I have
no idea what WOLINSKY would have changed to. Perhaps their children took on
surnames based on Jacob, or Laib, or Ephraim, or something entirely other.

Any help, knowledge, ideas please send to me at sorlen@u.arizona.edu

Best to you and to whichever of your Superbowl teams are playing in an hour

Thanks for the SHOCHETs #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

I received a good number of answers to my question about surnames involved
with the profession of shochet, as follows, excluding variations:

SCHECHTER
SCHOCHETMAN (in Israel)
REZNIK (Russian)
FLEISCHER
SCHUBB (abbreviation of "shochet ve bedok" (sp?)
MENAKER

and, the most obvious one, the one I hadn't thought of: SHOCHET!

One of my Suher relatives was listed on the manifest as SUCHED, another as
SUCHETT, both of which might have been either misspellings or variations on
the same name, SHOCHET - or perhaps that's how the name was pronounced in
the Kovno area.

Re: Name changes in the UK #general

Nick Landau <N.Landau@...>
 

This morning I received my new passport, a very official document. At my
request it has my "new" name, adopted by me in 1975. It only took a cover
letter, no legal document, no announcement in the press. I hope that
clarifies the situation once and for all. Incidentally, when my younger
daughter married she did not adopt her husband's surname. Consequently
when
I came across the entries for her two children whilst searching at the
Family Records Center in Islingtion, London, I discovered that each child
had two entries with different surnames but only a single certificate
number.
