Before you book that return plane ticket, or plan to hop on the train to
your summer home or to take off for the beach, please look at the
Conference's Friday morning schedule. We have some very exciting talks and
events planned that morning that you won't want to miss.

We have been blessed with over 260 presentations. Rather than keeping
everyone awake until midnight every night to attend them, we opted to
schedule a full morning of sessions on Friday, Aug. 18, >from 8:00 a.m. to
12:15 p.m.

If you're interested in Jews >from Lithuania, Ukraine, Hungary, Greece,
Transcarpathia, Scotland -- or New York...

If you'd like to gain exposure on the Internet, unearth deep dark secrets
about the criminals in your family's past, or find other "Jews in the
news"...

If you need advice on getting organized, publishing your research, or
conserving your photos and documents...

If you're searching for living relatives or trying to learn more about Shoah
victims or survivors...

If you hope to understand your "chochka" (or how a word comes to be spelled
that way)...

If you want to hear the story of a genealogist who became "suddenly
Jewish"...

...Friday has something for you. I suggest that you read about Friday's
sessions on the Conference web site

www.jgsny2006.org/conference_program.cfm

One of these programs requires some preparation. For "The Jewish Chochka and
Ephemera Road Show" (Session 408), Rafi Guber requests that registrants
bring family items, documents, photos, and ephemera to the conference. He
and a panel will help determine when and >from where the items originated and
any other secrets they may reveal about your family. Please remember to
bring along items for this exciting session.

Stay through the 18th and leave on a chai!

EARLY REGISTRATION MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MAY 15, 2006 !!!

Vysokoye #belarus

Adar Belinkoff <adar@...>
 

I recently found a reference to my mother's family name >from the town of
Vysokoye. However there are 14 Vysokoyes listed in the ShtetlSeeker, all in
an area roughly 235 miles east to west and 330 miles north to south in
Belarus and Poland. I believe the town is Wysokie in Polish. What is the
meaning of the name and does anyone know why there would be so many? Were
any of them centers of Jewish population?

Beny and Freda Barnett in NYC- Update #general

JEF BARNETT <JBarnett@...>
 

Based on the first responses I received today, I should have mentioned that
the Barnett family I am looking for would all be deceased by now. I am
looking for any relatives that may be alive or people who may have know this
family.
Beny (aka Berish) Barnett was born 1879, Freda (Friedman) born 1879, and
their children between 1907-1910. All came to the US >from Poland/Russia and
the address I have was >from Freda's Petition for Naturalization in 1943.
Hopefully, a decendent of this family will recognize the names.
".....I am looking for the family of Beny and Freda Barnett who lived at xxx
Keap Street, Brooklyn in 1943. They had 3 children, Rebecca (Rivka), Morris
(Moshe) and Joseph (Israel?)........."

Anyone with any information, please contact me at JBarnett@...

Finding velvl/wolf libowski, also known as luboff #general

Rochelle Kaplan <rochelle@...>
 

I have been told by my husband's now deceased relative that my husband's
grandfather, Harry Lubov, formerly known as Hirsch Libowski, had a
sibling named Velvl Luboff who lived in NYC and had 8 children, but the
family lost touch with Velvl. On Hirsch Libowski's 1904 ship manifest,
he writes that he was going to see his brother Wolf Libowski, at 271
Madison St. Hirsch/Harry moved to CT. Another sibling, Beryl or Barnett
also moved to CT.

I have been trying unsuccessfully to locate Velvl or Wolf
Libowski/Luboff. I have tried NY Genealogical and Biographical Soc.
Links, Ancestry, Heritage Quest, Proquest, Stephen Morse NYC sites, NYC
1905 directories. I recently tried other variants of Libowski and Lubov.

I wonder if anyone out there has other suggestions- possible name
variants. What other names might Velvl or Wolf have adopted other than
Benjamin?

Sincerely,
Rochelle Kaplan

Help identifying Polish city on Russian-German border during WWI #general

Gary Katz <katzgary@...>
 

I recently located the following April 7, 1921 newspaper article
related to my KATZ family in the Bismarck (North Dakota) Tribune. I'd
greatly appreciate if anyone can help me identify the Polish city
that is described.

_Family Wiped Out in World War, says niece_
Joe Katz after Six Years Without Letters Receive News of Deaths

Joe Katz received word today >from a niece in Poland that three
brothers and two sisters were killed during the World war.
Mr. Katz has been trying for six years to get in communications with
some of his relatives in Poland, but today message of death was the
first once which he has received.
His niece said that she did not know whether they had been shot or
starved to death.

They lived about 150 miles west of Warsaw in a small city in which
the Russians and Germans clashed 16 times during the war.
The writer declared that the brothers and sisters had been driven out
of their homes and everything which they had had been taken. They
were all well to do.


In the mid-1800s, the family had lived in the Vilna area.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

All Rav means is that it was a form of respect. Almost like "Mister" or
"Sir" but with more reverence. It is quite common on tombstones.

geography question #poland

barryholly@...
 

I am researching my GGGrandfather- Samuel Revelsky- his father, Eleazer,
and we believe, a brother Abraham. Eleazer died prior to 1873, when
Samuel was married. On his marriage record and a subsequent census,
Samuel states that his place of origin is Poland, Russia. Is there a
town by the name of Poland in Russia? or would he have been referring
to the area which was in Poland and was annexed by Russia? apx. 1845-1875.

We assume his birth would have been apx. 1845-1851. He emigrated to
England prior to 1871. I would appreciate any historical/geographical
help! &/or advice on where to look for further information.

Thanks in advance,
