Update to All Belarus Database - Revision Lists- Minsk and Vileika Uyezds #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

The All Belarus Database (ABD) <http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/belarus/>
has been updated and now includes the 1850 Revision lists >from Vileika,
Dolginovo, and Radoshkovich in Vileika uyezd and the 1811 Revision lists for
Minsk city and Minsk uyezd. I recommend that you use the D/M search option
in the ABD because of variations in the spelling of surnames and place
names.

I would like to thank Vitaly Charny and his family for their work on the
Minsk Revision Lists and the contributors to the Vileika uyezd Revision List
Project <http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/belarus.html>. In
addition, thanks are due to Edward Rosenbaum, our SIG Webmaster and Database
Manager, and to Michael Tobias and Warren Blatt, the JewishGen gurus who
make all the databases a reality.

Vileika Uyezd Revision List Project - Update #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

In addition the previous announcement that the 1850 Vileika uyezd Revision
Lists for Vileika, Radoshkovich and Dolginovo have been added to the All
Belarus Database (ABD), we have just received the 1850 Revision Lists for:

Krivichi
Budslav
Gorodok
Kraisk
Lebedev
Rechki

These translated lists were received too late to include in the quarterly
update to the ABD. However, you can access the data using the Belarus Static
Index search page. Go the the Belarus SIG homepage
<http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/index.html> and click on "Search for your
ancestors". These lists will be added to the ABD on the next quarterly
update. Use the D/M search option.

Please keep the donations coming into
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/belarus.html> so we can complete
the earlier Vileika uyezd Revision Lists.

Please report any successes on the Belarus SIG discussion group.

Happy hunting!

Dudin and other agricultural colonies in Wester Russia #belarus

ELAINE KIRSH
 

This is the place listed on the passenger list for my grandmother's last
place of residence. Her brother listed Mstivlavisk (an alternative spelling of
this name), which is both a town/city and a Uezd. The Volost for Dudin is
Monastyvshchinsk. On the JewishGen site I can find Dudin on a list of agricultural
colonies in Western Russia prior to 1904. Does anyone on the Belarus list
have any additional info on Dudin and/or other agricultural colonies in Western
Russia? The info on the JewishGen agricultural colonies site is about the
colonies in the Ukraine. Elaine

Grandfather >from Smolensk: Abraham Mogin

American Jewish Historical Societ Landsmanshaften files Boxes 3&4 #belarus

Jerome Seligsohn <jselig1315@...>
 

In order to fit my decription of what is contained in
the files listed above I attempted to abbreviate it in
an extreme manner and failed to satisfy the space
requiremnts of this message board and to be
intelligible to the average viewer.
At the risk of making my personal interests over the
concerns of a wide readership I will hazard an
estimate that I have uncovered a gold mine for those
who will make the trip to West 16th St in NYC to view
what I so briefly have described.
The souvenir journals of landsmanshaften are rich in
names, pictures and history. The advertisements alone
are worth the effort. These journals span a time frame
from the thirties to the fifties. They contain
addresses in some journals. In memoriam pages list the
names of the dead.
To get an idea of what are in boxes 3&4 go to
www.jewishgen.org/databases/ajhsv.htm
I cannot repeat the experience I had with boxes one
and two where I personally forwarded my descriptions
to your e-mail addresses at your request. I ask that
some member put my description temporarily on their
website and refer the readership to this listing of
descriptions.

1897 Grodno Gubernia All Russian Census #belarus

Joseph Hirschfield
 

Using the newly available 1897 Grodno Gubernia All Russian Census, I have located
my grandmother's brother, his wife and six of their children. Now I know the
village where my grandmother likely was born, Vyarkhovichy. Her brother was a
miller in Rasna, near Brest.

Thank you for making the information available.

Bulletins of the Keidaner Assoc. #lithuania

Carlos Glikson
 

Jerome Seligsohn has identified sources of interest to Keidaners in the
contents of boxes at the Center for Jewish History Library.

In a message today to the Belarus SIG re. "AJHS Landsmanshaften Archives
Boxes 3&4" (AJHS is the American Jewish Historical Society) he mentions,
amongst the folders in those boxes, bulletins of the Keidaner Association
and the 30th Anniversary Keidener Assoc 1900-30, and 1940-41 40th
Anniversary Booklets.

A link to Landsmanschaft Manuscript Collections of The American Jewish
Historical Society
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/ajhsv.htm
enables to find more info re. these publications including members list,
family groups, and in memoriam mentions - and also links to find reading
room locations.

"All AJHS manuscript collections must be accessed in person on-site. For
information on how to research the AJHS archival collections, essential
information about their Reading Room and Regulations can be found at
http://www.ajhs.org/reference/readingrooms.cfm
AJHS has facilities in New York and in Newton, Massachusetts - I am not
checking if the material can be made available in Massachusetts too.

Hope this helps those living nearby!

IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy - Yad Vashem joint program #general

martha <martha@...>
 

There is good reason why Jerusalem was renowned in antiquity as one
of the Seven Wonders of the World. There is no place on earth quite
like it. The beauty of her stone-faced buildings is incomparable; the
spirituality of Jerusalem is tangible. Her antiquities, thousands of
years old, surround one with the echoes of history and the memories
of our forefathers.

Appropriately, Yad Vashem was established on one of the beautiful
hills of Jerusalem, hills rich with history and echoing with the
voices of our ancestors. Yad Vashem was created to document and
preserve the memory of our families murdered in the Shoah. At the
IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, we have planned a
rich and moving program together with Yad Vashem, which will honour
our families and provide continuity to our history.

After the GenealogyBus shuttle shepherds us >from the hotel to Yad
Vashem on Monday afternoon, 5 July, we will enjoy two plenary
sessions by the senior staff >from the Archives and the Hall of Names.
They will detail current archival resources and research tactics, as
well as unveil to us their vision for the future. Sessions will then
be divided up into a choice of lectures given simultaneously by
various Holocaust scholars. After that, we will disperse to the
monumental Valley of the Communities, a vast memorial to the more
than 5,000 Jewish communities destroyed or shattered in the Shoah.
Here each of us will have the opportunity, as we wander through the
stone courtyards, to locate the names of our families' communities
and to hold a private memorial service to honour their memory.

After a light supper, the program will conclude in the auditorium
with an evening of Jewish music and culture, with films and live
performances by folk singer Shuli Natan [Yerushalayim shel Zahav] and
the delightful children's Harmonica Orchestra of Ramat Gan. The
evening's master of ceremonies will be Beni Hendel. Am Yisrael Chai!

The GenealogyBus will return us to the Hotel so that everyone can get
a good night's rest to prepare them for the bustling Conference
activities of the next day. These and all activities can be found on
the conferernce website: http://www.jewishgen.org/jerusalem2004

SCHECHTER from Skalat and Starokonstantin #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

First let me say that thanks to a previous message I posted as to this
group, a distant cousin (in-law) contacted me and we've been corresponding
and I just added dozens of new names to our cousin registry.

Secondly, let me try again.

My greatgrandfather, Yacov Gedalia SCHECHTER, (son of David son of
Yisrael)having lived in Skalat and Starokonstantine and his ancestors were
from Ostraha and (Rabbis of) Kremenetz, came to Jerusalem in the second half
of the 19th cent. I keep a registry of all his descendants.

He had brothers and uncles who emmigrated to Vienna and the USA. We know
some first names but nothing more about their wanderings.

Does this sparse information sound familiar to anyone?
