In fact, Sheva itself is not an uncommon name. It may have originated

Shari Kantrow asked why someone didn't take a ship >from Lomza or words to
that effect.

Lomza was certainly not close to a port and families throughout Eastern
Europe had to make their way to their port of departure,

For many years, the shipping of emigrants to the U S and other refuges was a
very lucrative business for the shipping companies. They therefore sent
salesmen into those areas >from which people were fleeing to sell tickets.
There were several competing steamship lines and several different ports
from which they could sail. This competition was frequently the reason why
husbands would sometimes come via one port and would bring his family a
couple of years later (after he had earned their passage money) via a
different port. In each case, the travelers would have to get to the port.
They frequently hired a cart and cart driver to get them to the port. If it
was a long distance sometimes the rode by cart to the nearest railroad which
carried them to the port. They were carrying their possessions with them.
The trip was dangerous with many stories of thieves and murders on the way.

Also note that if on arriving in America the immigrants were rejected at
immigration for health reasons, the shipping company was required to take
them back home without any cost to the traveller.

Message from the new Litvak SIG President #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

Dear Litvak SIG Members and interested Litvaks,

I want to thank all of those who congratulated me and the new board members
for being elected to the Litvak SIG Board. All of us realize the importance
of the duties and responsibilities placed upon us and, speaking for myself
as well as for the other board members, we are ready to accept the
challenge.

In some respects, the road ahead will not be an easy one. Some aspects of
the past must be forgotten, and ruffled feathers must be smoothed. With
everyone's cooperation I am sure this can be accomplished to the benefit
of all. We cannot change the past but we certainly can influence the
future and make it a bigger and brighter one.

The election was held on Monday, late afternoon, on August 14. The next
day, the new Litvak SIG Board met and had its first official board meeting.
I am very pleased to report that it was a very productive meeting. Everyone
was on the same page, a cooperative spirit prevailed, and it bodes well
for the future.

In my "campaigning" before the election, I promised to make the Litvak SIG
as transparent, and as member-friendly, as possible. As soon as I, and the
other board members, have a chance to catch our breath, you will start to
see evidence of that transparency. Merle Kastner, the SIG Secretary, will
produce her notes taken at the initial board meeting of the new board and,
as soon as they have been approved for accuracy by the other board members,
the minutes of the board meeting will be displayed on the SIG Digest.

I am not prepared to go into all of the details at this time but I do want
to report that the confusion that may have existed in the past, involving
the vital records projects, will be cleared up for the benefit of all.
Joel Ratner will concentrate on the Vilna Gubernia vital records and Aaron
Roetenberg will concentrate on the Kaunas Gubernia vital records. There
will be no duplication involved and no competing for the same financial
donations as different districts will be involved. At some point in the
future, all of the vital records will appear in the ALD as well as on
JewishGen. Some preliminary work has to be done prior to this happening
but it will be done. Your patience until the fine details are worked out
will be appreciated.

Over the years, I know many good Litvaks sort of "dropped out" and ceased
paying their $36 annual dues to the Litvak SIG. The new board hopes, by
their actions and accomplishments, to show that you will receive benefits
from being a dues-paying member. If you want to wait until you see
evidence of that, fine. If you would like to show your support for the
commitment the board members have made by being elected to the new board,
then a remittance of your $36 dues now would be appreciated. Please follow
the payment instructions as shown on the SIG website. The SIG year is on
a Calendar year basis - January 1st through December 31st.

More relatives connected thanks to jewishgen and all researchers out there. #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello All

I have just recently got in contact with relatives in Argentina and now
New York. I am so excited. I am finding out more and more everyday now.
I owe my thanks to jewishgen and all other researchers out there like
me who have helped me with advice or research. I encourage everyone if
you can to volunteer in some way to help keep Jewishgen going and other
projects that they are involved in. Without them, I do not think i
would have been able to come this far in my research. I still have many
roadblocks to clear, but with jewishgens wonderful website maybe I will
be able to overcome them.

WW1 German Military cemeteries #general

Plevine300
 

In regard to Jules Levin's request on these Jewish German WW1 military
burials, I know that one of my relatives is buried somewhere in France.
They did not bring home their soldiers for burial as we do today during WW1.

"Nick" tulse04-news@yahoo.co.uk
answered her with a website he found for finding these deaths.
It's written in German, can someone help out by telling me if it lists a
Herman Marcus or Markus, buried in France? Does this website list the
cemeteries?I can't read German.
The website was http://www.denkmalprojekt.org/Verlustlisten/rjf_wk1.htm

Thank you.

Fanny and Vogel #general

sbloom@...
 

Hi-

Nearly all of the "Fayga" in my family who moved to an English speaking
country became "Fanny"---
I don't think there is anything in translation, it was simply a popular
female name amongst
immigrant Jews of the time that happened to have some similar letters
(well, in some form of Yiddish that is transliterated, that is). There
could be a more complex answer, but I think thats it.

Steve Bloom
Farmville, VA

One of my cousins emigrated >from Amsterdam to London in 19th century.
In Holland her given name was Vogel but it became Fanny in England.
Is there an explanation how the given name Vogel=bird in Dutch becomes=
Fanny.snip>>>>>>>>>>
