Researching Falitz, Yumolofsky, Ostroff, Ginsberg, Berger, Kuritsky, Gitlitz,
Kretschmer, Reichel, Revelsky (Revel), Gallen--

I have been tracing my ancestors and am looking for some
help/information/direction:

1) Abraham FALITZ m. Sima YUMOLOFSKY, births/deaths unknown and Abraham's
brother, Jacob Falitz m. Molly (Malvina) OSTROFF (also births/deaths
unknown).
All I believe >from Zitomir (Zhitomir Chitoma), Ukraine, Russia, near Minsk?
Abraham's 3 sons all emigrated to the USA; 2 of Jacob's children emigrated
to the USA 1908 & 1914 (my paternal GM was one). I believe I have all the
descendents, I am now trying to research further back to Abraham and Jacob's
parents; I would appreciate any direction as to where I can find further
information on Zitomir: records/lists, etc.

2) Paternal GF: Samuel GINSBERG m. Sadie BERGER, both remained in Russia;
children Benjamin (Barnet- Barney) Ginsberg, b. 1882 emigrated to USA, lived
in Bronx, NY, m. Rose Falitz, brother
Aaron Joe Ginsberg lived in Amherst, MA, sister
Sonia Ginsberg m Herman Rogovoy (Rogovoj) in Russia or Hungary, lived in
Hungary, emigrated with 5 children in 1920/21 (Nahan, Ethel, Josef, Jakab,
Leah);
Another brother Alexander (Mike) Ginsberg, lived in Bronx, had 6 children,
Joe, Sol, Rosie, Ann, + 2 unknown.
A sister Bertha Ginsberg, m. Gelman.
I am trying to trace descendents of Alexander & Bertha Ginsberg, Ethel
Rogovoy (m. Lutz Zimmerman) and again, ancestors Samuel Ginsberg/Sadie Berger
from
Minsk.

3) Maternal GGF: Israel (Isidore) Kuritsky m. Liba Reichel (Liba Reichel
previously m. to an unknown Gitlitz). Liba Reichel's brother, Louis m Hannah
Schneider. Israel and Liba's children were Isadore Kuritsky (m Lena
Kretschmer), Julius Gitlitz (m Lena), Harry Kuritsky (name changed to Harry
Curn), m
Selma Revelsky. I have descendents, am looking for further information on
Liba
Reichel and Israel Kuritsky, farmer. We think the ancestors may have come
from Danolovitz, Poland.
4) Maternal GM: Selma Revel, daughter of Julius Revelsky b. 1874-75 in,
possibly in England or Russia- lived in England until 1890, emigrated to
USA.
Julius m. Yetta Gallen, b 1870 , possibly in Korbin, Belarusse (? Germany) ,
emigrated to UK, to NY in 1885, d. 1947? in NY.
Found in 1920 census, not in 1930 census; have not found emigration records
in Ellis Island; looking for descendents Norma Revel, m Irving Segal,
daughters Renee m Pasternak( children unknown if any) , daughter Marilyn m.
Parker,
(children Seth & Neil Parker, whereabouts unknown.)
Looking for other sources of emigration records other than Ellis Island to
find more information on Julius Revelsky and Yetta Gallen; descendents Norma
&
Irving Segal & children; Norma's brother Sol, m Mary, children Marvin and
daughter, any other information unknown.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Search for family KRASNAPOLSKI (connected to Sack and Kupchik) #general

Daniel Gee <DanielGee@...>
 

Dear Genners,
I am trying to find my 'KRASNAPOLSKI' family - can you help?
My gggrandmother Clara Kupchick was married to a Mr Krasnapolski.
They wed in about 1890/1 in a village north east of Odessa.
Their daughters were Sophie & Tilly, but he was killed by robbers in 1886.
There is a Krasnopol in Poland, so his family may have come >from there.
Clara remarried, and the first 2 daughters took their stepfather's surname.
The family, called Isowitzsky (later Isow), then travelled to London in
1908.
Mr Krasnapolski's name only just came to light, after a decade of searching.
So I now have a surname, but nothing more. Can you help?
Do any of the above snippets of information ring any bells with you?
If so please get in touch!
Regards
Daniel Gleek in London

Also searching for information on Hyman and Rebecca SACK.
Hyman came >from Russia to London via Cape Town in the early 1900s.
The SACK children were Reuben, Jessie (married Alf) and Lily (married
David).
Do you remember any siblings called Reubem, Jessie & Lily Sack?
The grandchildren (who would now be aged around 60-70) were called
Nina, Norma and Barbara, but their surname wouldn't be SACK
and they may not be siblings, but cousins. Please help!!


Brooklyn website #general

HeyJudy123@...
 

I wish to thank Josh Backon for supplying the URL
<<www.bklyn-genealogy-info.com>>

As he wrote, this site is an excellent research resource for queries about
Brooklyn.

Yet the site's name is misleading, as this amazingly comprehensive site
also covers Queens and Long Island, going right back to the original Dutch
settlers. (It often is forgotten that the New York City boroughs of Queens and
Brooklyn are contiguous and, along with Nassau and Suffolk counties, these four
counties all make up that land mass known as "Long Island." The political
distinctions among these jurisdictions only are about a century old.)

Be'er Heitev HaRishon and Bet Shmuel on the Even HaEzer #rabbinic

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

According to a note I just found, my ggggg grandfather, Reb. Arieh
Leibush of Kremenetz had a son-in-law who wrote the sefer Be'er
Heitev (HaRishon) and a son-in-law who wrote the Bet Shmuel on Even
HaEzer. (Their names are not mentioned in the note.)

Interstingly, Meir Wunder, in his mook "Elef Margaliot" records
Arieh Leib but not any of his descendants. Neil Rosenstein, in
"The Unbroken Chain" notes for Arieh Leib, the son of Shmuel of
Kremenetz, only a daughter who married Yitzchak Isaac, the Rav of
Rava Ruska and their descendants, including the GUTSTEIN and TAUBES
family but does not mention the above Sforim.

My interest is in other chikdren of the above Arieh Leib,
specifically a daughter who is recorded in our family records as
having married a Yosef of Breznitz.

Would appreciate hearing >from anyone having information on the
siblings of the authors of the above sforim.

Thank you and shabbat shalom

1806, 1850, 1858 Revision Lists for Byten, Belarus #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

At the Jewish Genealogy Conference in Washington DC this past summer, some
people who are researching families >from Byten, Slonim uyezd, Grodno
gubernia, Belarus, indicated that they wanted to get records >from Belarus.

The SIG has an opportunity to get a complete English extraction of the 1806,
1850, 1858 Byten Revision (Census) lists. These records are in the Grodno
Archive and have not been filmed by the Family History Library. The
JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF) shows that there are 18 people researching
Byten. There may be others in the Belarus SIG who are interested in Byten,
but have not registered in the JGFF. Revision Lists are an excellent source
document for family research, especially when birth, death, and marriage
records are not available. A single Revision list can often provide names
of three generations >from a family as well as the ability to determine the
year of birth (>from the age at time of the Revision).

For those of you you are interested in seeing this valuable data for Byten
families, please make a donation to the Belarus SIG general fund by going to

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/belarus.html

Please notify me by private email if you have made a donation for Byten and
how much so I know if we have collected enough to pay for this data. While I
did not compare all the names in the JGFF, I did notice that many of the
names being researched are included on this database.
