To the Belarus Research SIG:
The following message is of importance to anyone who may have relatives
buried in the cemetary in Oshmiany. Currently there are many stones
overturned and it is difficult to find graves. A group of people have
organized to fix the cemetary. Their information follows. Please contact
Chanan Peled of the Oshmiany Organization in Israel for more details about
the project or for information about how you can help.He
has given us permission to post his message on this list.

The Issue we would like to bring up to your attention is the restoration and
rebuilding of the Jewish Cemetery in the town of
Oshmiany, located in Belarus, about 50 kilometers >from Wilnus (Wilna) in the
direction to Minsk. Former residents of Oshmiany have visited the town and
found the Jewish Cemetery half destroyed and in ruins. Part of the tombs
have been stolen, a lot of them broken and dispersed in the field. Only a
minor numbers of tombs are still standing. The Cemetery is covered with wild
overgrown grass and garbage. Herds of pigs and cows are wandering around.
The old fence has disappeared.

It also came to our knowledge that the city hall intends to remove the
graves and build on the site a dwelling project.


The Jewish Oshmiany organization registered as non-profit organization whose
registration number is 58-034-598-1, brought up the matter of restoring the
Cemetery with the town hall officials of Oshmiany. Their response was a very
positive one.All the expenses of the restoration have to be provide by our
organization.

We need additional help to preserve and eliminate the complete destruction
of the Cemetery.

Vitebsk families in Sweden and Denmark #belarus

Adam Katzeff <adam.katzeff@...>
 

Dear all,

I have for a while tried to collect information on the different Jewish
families >from the Vitebsk guberniya who emigrated to Scandinavia, mainly
Sweden and Denmark, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The reasons
why I'm doing this is mainly:

*My great grandmother Anna NEMCHENOK and her sisters Schifra (Sonja) and Ode
(Olga) emigrated >from Vitebsk to Stockholm, Sweden in 1897 respectively 1906
(my great grandmother and her family moved onwards to Copenhagen, Denmark
in 1913).
*In Swedish records I have found out that Anna and her two sisters go
together with a lot of other people >from the area around Vitebsk and some of
them were certainly related.
*There were relatively few families in Scandinavia >from the Vitebsk
guberniya and many of them seems to be related to each other.
*By collecting information on these families I might be able to find
connections between my family and other families also >from the Vitebsk
guberniya.

Further down in this e-mail you will find a list of surnames combined with
place of origin for several families in Sweden and Denmark who had their
origin somewhere in the Vitebsk guberniya. The list is far >from complete,
but I guess it might include 50 percent of the families or even more.

Even if most of you who research a family >from Vitebsk guberniya has never
heard of any connection to Sweden or Denmark I wouldn't be surprised if you
will at some point find one. Many of the families in Sweden and Denmark just
lived there for a few years as a stop on their emigration >from Russia to the
US or Canada. So, take a look on the list below and maybe you will find the
surname you are researching. If you find it and think there might be a
connection, you are very welcome e-mailing me. I have some information on
all families and on some I even have extensive familytrees!

Finally, regarding the spelling of the surnames, I have tried to standardize
the spellings based on how they were normally spelled in Russia (of course
translitterated into English). The names might have been spelled in a
completely different way in Scandinavia. For some names it haven't been
possible to find out how they were spelled in Russia and in those cases the
names are placed in paranthezis. Most of the families I have managed to find
out exactly where in the Vitebsk guberniya they originated, but for some
their origin is just listed as "Vitebsk". That can of course be the city of
Vitebsk itself, but might also be just somewhere in the Vitebsk guberniya.
Those families are listed separately in the end of the list.

Dear Belarus SIG members,

Several new articles have been posted to the online newsletter, including
two reviews by Dr. Leonid Smilovitsky, a Belarus travelogue by Dave Gordon,
a scholarly investigation of Jewish literacy in Belarus at the turn of the
20th century, and a fascinating consideration of the insights to be gleaned
from 1912 Duma Voter Lists by Shlomo Gurevich. Please click on:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Belarus/newsletter/bnl_index.htm

As always, we invite your submissions and suggestions to make our newsletter
as useful and interesting as possible.

Belarus SIG #Belarus newsletter - new articles #belarus

Fran Bock
 

Dear Belarus SIG members,

Several new articles have been posted to the online newsletter, including
two reviews by Dr. Leonid Smilovitsky, a Belarus travelogue by Dave Gordon,
a scholarly investigation of Jewish literacy in Belarus at the turn of the
20th century, and a fascinating consideration of the insights to be gleaned
from 1912 Duma Voter Lists by Shlomo Gurevich. Please click on:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Belarus/newsletter/bnl_index.htm

As always, we invite your submissions and suggestions to make our newsletter
as useful and interesting as possible.

Sincerely,

Jews in Kansas City, Missouri #general

Yehuda Berman <ybberman@...>
 

I just discovered on the Ellis Island ship manifests that my late father
Louis BERMAN, who arrived in the U.S. in 1906, listed his destination as a
cousin “BERMAN BUTTERMAN” (as best as I can decipher the manifest) who lived
on Central Ave. in Kansas City Missouri. I know that my father lived for
several years in St. Louis, Missouri but this is the first I’ve heard that
he had a cousin in the U.S. or that he lived in Kansas City which is at the
other end of the state.

Where can I find information on the Jewish community in Kansas City,
Missouri in 1906 or thereabouts? Or about any Bermans or Buttermans living
there at that time?

Thank you for any input,
Yehuda Berman,
Efrat, Israel

Related to Charlie Chaplin? #general

Micha Reisel
 

Dear Genners,
According to family lore my Pggm Lea Reisel born Kaplan, was
the aunt of Charlie Chaplins father, making my father the second cousin to
Charlie himself.
I know that most sources deny that the Chaplins were Jewish, but
I am trying to ascertain if someone knows where in Lithuania the
Chaplins came >from and if their name was Kaplan before becoming Chaplin
:-)

Take care,
Micha

I believe that when the IAJGS conference was last in New York
City, someone posted an extensive family tree of the descendants of the
Gaon of Vilna. I recall that Harry COHN and Leonard NIMOY were two
descendants listed.

NY state law research question #general

Sara Lynns
 

How do I determine NY state law that governs a private
agency giving information to a family member?

In contacting a Jewish *private* agency (NY)
they've indicated being governed by NY state law
that prohibits them >from actually copying records
(even for family members)

I spoke with several local genealogists on this
doesn't sit right with them

suggestions, feedback?

thanks
Jackie Lerner-Aderman
