KAHANO surname #general

Avraham <435.gavea@...>
 

If anyone would have anything to add about this surname, I would highly appreciate.
I was reading one of the messages >from the list digest - which I can't remember -
but was about being unable to trully access the following website:
http://jew.gendrevo.ru - and I came across something new for me: the name KAHANO.
So far I was aware of KAHANA (which is in fact my family name or at least was in
previous times, before turning into KANO), KAHANE, KAN, KANA... but not KAHANO.
The first thing that came to my mind after looking at this name was: "Maybe...
maybe the family shortened KAHANO to KANO still in Poland, for some reason !"

I could find 15 occurrences on JewishGen databases,specially >from Suwalki Gubernia,
which unfortunately does not mean much to me. I wonder if anyone is
connected/related/knows any KAHANO families and could give me their contact
information so I can give it some analysis.

Thank you in advance,and Shabat Shalom to you all.

archives for Liwny anyone? #ukraine

Bea <blspabas@...>
 

Dear Ukraine SIG,

I would like to find out if there are any relevant genealogical records in
what was known as Liwny for before 1905. Can anyone email me details (name,
address, website, email, telephone) for all archives for Liwny/Livny, in
Russia? I think Livny is in the oblast called Orel (or known Orlovsk,
Orlovskaya, Oryol, or Oriol)."

Can you help at all? Thanks and I hope to hear >from you!

GOLDENBERGER #romania

GOLDENBERGER
On my late grandfather's military draft registration #68, issued by the
Yelisavetgrad Police Department in 1886, he is named Simon Shmuel
Goldenberger. His parents were Benjamin and Gerty Goldenberger, both
subjects of Romania. On his British Naturalization certificate it states
that SIMON SAMUEL GOLDENBERGER was born in Bucharest, Romainia in 1859.
from Bucharest he moved to Kirovograd, Ukraine before emigrating with his
wife, Sima -Sarah (nee ZALATAROV) and their four children, Benjamin, Gerty,
Abraham, and Isaac, to Leeds, England, in about 1898.
SIMON SAMUEL GOLDENBERGER was the only member of his immediate family to
live in England. It is known that he had relatives (probably siblings) who
emigrated to U.S.A. Names and their whereabouts are unknown.

I would like receive any information on the GOLDENBERGER and ZALATAROV
families..

Belarus Maps Still Available #belarus

David Feldman <david.feldman@...>
 

A week ago we posted a note to the digest about maps of Belarus that we have
available. There are still some left. These maps are being made available
for a $100 donation.

These maps are really nice and show all known towns in Belarus that have had
at anytime a Jewish presence. For each town there are symbols that mark if
the town has:

- Existing Jewish communities
- Non-existing Jewish communities
- Jewish houses; yeshivas, heders, mikvehs, rabbi homes etc.
- Jewish cemeteries
- Places of mass execution of Jews during the Holocaust

The actual map is 18" x 20" in size and would look nice framed.

Please specify what project you would like to fund with the $100 donation.
If you do not have a particular project to donate the money to, just specify
the Belarus general fund.

If you are interested, go to
http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/Belarus_map.htm to see a sample map and
link to the Belarus JewishGenerosity (donations) page.

Genealogical Clues on United Synagogue Marriage Authorisations #unitedkingdom

Louise Messik <louise@...>
 

Dear All,

During the course of 2007 and after many years discussion, JGS Great Britain
and the United Synagogue reached an agreement whereby I would index the US
Marriage Authorisation documents, up to and including 1907, to show the
names of bride and groom with the date and place of marriage. The indexes
would then be placed on a joint website page under the auspices of the
United Synagogue. This process will take many, many months to complete but I
hope that the US may be persuaded to put up the first 3,000 or so records I
have prepared in the near future and to have them added to on a frequent
basis.

These authorisations, if you know where and how to look, carry many
genealogical clues for researchers. To that end Rabbi Jeremy Rosen (to whom
I am indebted) and I decided to produce a crib sheet which can be found at
http://www.jgsgb.org.uk/Marriage_Authorisations.shtml.

How many of you have looked at a marriage authorisation and been at a loss
to understand the (often badly written) cursive Hebrew and Aramaic of the
completed form and what it might contain? Why the groom's brothers are
named etc. Look no further!

I do hope that you will find it another useful tool.

Moses Hart #general

Ray Hart <rmbhart@...>
 

Dear Listers,
Would any one have the following.........
Moses Hart died around 1844. He was married to Elizabeth UNKNOWN. Their children
were Zalig Solomon Hart, and Lipsman. There may have been more, this would be the
first unknown.

This was a Jewish Family possibly with a connection to the Great Synagogue Of
London. But it's the pedigree I am interested in. 1/Moses when was he born, and
where was married? 2/Who were his parents.

There seem it be plenty of info on Ancestry.uk but I am unable to go deep enough.

Truly appreciate any help given.

Regards, Ray [Australia]

Need advice re location of Russian records #general

Beverley Davis
 

Last year I obtained records >from the Latvian Archives about my maternal
grandmother's orgins in Dvinsk, Vitebsk province, and was excited to find out that
her husband (my grandfather) "belonged to the Jewish community of Ostrow, Pskov
province", Russia (born ca1870). He was a cap-maker (a very Jewish occupation of
the time). Until now,the only family story was that he was ">from Pinsk or Minsk"...
not very helpful, and probably had also been confused with Dvinsk!!

They married in "Russia" ca1890. Their first child was born 1893 in Dvinsk, the
next two ca1894, 1896, in St Petersburg, and the fourth in Dvinsk ca1897. He and
his family were residents of St Petersburg but were listed in the 1897 First All
Russia census as living with the wife's parents in Dvinsk. (note: shortly after
this time, he left for England and was followed a few months later by his wife and
the four children; another four were born in London).

My question is: can anyone advise me where and how I should try for records of my
grandfather's origins in Ostrow, Pskov province, as well as his time in St
Petersburg and the births of the children there? Since seeing a map of the area
from 1897 I am now very confused about border demarcations!!
