Reuben Gross <reubendgross@...>
 

Someone sent me her Gedcom file. We share a common 12th G-Grandfather as such much
of our trees are alike. I want to just add her branch to my file without merging
the complete files and duplicating thousands of name. Anyone know how to do that?
Please respond privately. Thanks!

A Google search finds Abul Farid Gabteni, president of the Voice of Islam in
France, and a boxer Fahmi Gabteni born in Tunisia. Which doesn't rule out the
possibility that it's a Jewish name too (perhaps among Jews >from North Africa).

The following link is to a Russian document that I believe to be the birth

complete translation would be wonderful but I really would appreciate all
names, places, dates and other pertinent facts. If the ViewMates scan is not
legible enough, I have a better scan (larger file) that I can email. Please

Re: Pogroms in Russia of 1981 #general

<After the assignation of Tsar Alexander III of Russia on March 14, 1881 there

Some that I am aware of are:

Berezovka, Ukraine April 4

Elisabethgrad, ??? April 27

Kiev, Ukraine May 5


On April 27, 1881 there was a pogrom against Russian Jews in Elisabethgrad. This
is sited at:

http://www.brainyhistory.com/years/1881.html

Can anyone tell me the exact location of Elisabethgrad?>

Jewishgen's ShtetlSeeker is a good place to find exact map coordinates of places
where Jews and others lived.
The entry for Kirovograd (Elizabetgrad) in "Where We Once Walked" (WWOW)says that
its map coordinates) are: 48"30/32"18. It is 158 kilometers east of Uman. WWOW
also gives a number of spelling variants for Elizabetgrad as well as the other
names for this small city. My Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer notes that
Kirovograd experienced pogroms in 1905 and 1919 as well as in 1881. Yelizavetgrad
was renamed Zinovyevsk in 1924, Kirovo in 1936, and in 1939 was renamed
Kirovograd.

For information detailed information about the 1881 pogroms, other than that
which can be found on the Internet, I have listed several books below which Mr.
Brook may want to consult. I should remark that there was a period of pogroms
dating >from 1881 through 1884.

I.Michael Aronson's article "The Anti-Jewish Pogroms in Russia in 1881" in
Klier and Lambroza (see book title below) indicates that 259 recorded pogroms
occurred in villages, 4 in Jewish agricultural districts, and 36 in large towns
and townlets. In the same Aronson's own book, "Troubled Waters," there is a 6 1/2
page Table showing the towns and villages in which pogroms occurred, as well as
several other tables and other information, such as a calendar of 1881 progroms.
However, Aronson's information should be read in context of other books on Jewish
history. For instance, Dubnow's chapter on "The Accession of Alexander III..."
offers a number of details about the pogroms that ensued after Alexander II
assassination which are not mentioned elsewhere.

Also, whenever specific dates are noted in any scholarly book, attention should
be paid to dates of pogroms that may have recurred in the same local after the
initial onslaught. In some instances, pogroms were quickly quashed by the
police, while other pograms planned did not occur, as when the forewarned Jews of
Berdichev averted a pogrom by means of their own self-defense. Details about some
of the 1881 pogroms that may have occurred in any particular locale can be found
scattered throughout the following books:

Stephen M. Berk's "Year of Crisis, Year of Hope: Russian Jewry and the Pogroms
of 1881-1882," Greenwood Press, 1985

Michael Aronson's "Troubled Waters: The Origin of the 1881 Anti-Jewish Pogroms
in Russia, `1881-1882" University of Pittsburgh Press,1990.

John B. Klier and Shlomo Lombroza, editors "Pogroms: Anti-Jewish Violence in
Modern Jewish History, Cambridge University Press,1992

I.M. Aronson, "Troubled Waters: The Origins of the 1881 Anti-Jewish pgoroms in
Russia," University of Pittsburgh Press, 1990

Simon M. Dubnow," History of the Jews in Poland and Russia," as reformatted and
republished by Avotaynu, Inc. 2003.

I compiled the above list of books >from some of those in my own personal
library but I could list more if necessary.

According to the memoir of my maternal grandfather's first cousin, during the
1881 pogrom in Odessa, Sender (Alexander) Belkowsky received such blows that he
never fully recovered >from his injuries and died a couple of years after he
sustained them. I am curious to know why Mr. Brook seeks a list of 1881 pogroms
and I have put his inguiry in the genealogical sub-category inside my head. I've
labeled this subcategory "Is there a list somewhere?"

Note: The discrepancy between the dates of Elizabetgrad's 1881 pogrom,"April
27", which Mr. Brook found, and the one, "April 15" offered by Professor Berk and
other writers is attributable to the difference between the Russian calendar and
that of most of the Western world.

Anyone going to Memphis Cemetery--Children of Israel? #general

If anyone has plans to visit the Children of Israel Cemetery in Memphis anytime
soon, and would be willing to do me a favor, please contact me. This involves a
particular stone >from the NATHAN family which had a town of origin in Germany on
it. I saw it in 1996, but did not photograph it, because at the time I did not
think it relevant. Needless to say, it has now become relevant.
