What geographic area does Belarus cover? #belarus

suewelsh@...
 

Is it just me?

I have difficulty in being sure of what geographic areas are included in
"Belarus". Did the boundaries shift with time periods such as after the
Russian Revolution? WWI? WWII? Or is this a modern overlay of a
specific geographic area that doesn't change no matter what the time
period? . Is there duplication with other SIGs because of this?

New data for Belarus-associated society burials in New York #belarus

steve725@...
 

You can now view unique surname lists for society plot burials at Beth Moses
Cemetery in Pinelawn, New York, that are associated with towns in today's
Belarus. The plots are listed here solely by the name of the town that is
associated with the plot.

The towns represented are Divin, Novogrudok and Pukhovichi. There are more
plots for these towns located elsewhere in the New York metro area, but this
is all that I have for you and I have no plans to do gravestone photography
for the foreseeable future (though this could change in the Spring.) If you
find a surname of interest in any of these lists and would like a photo of
the gravestone, please let me know. In your request, you must state both the
surname of interest and the town that the particular surname is associated
with within these lists. Other Belarus towns represented with a unique
surnames list are Grodno, Khomsk, Lyubcha, Minsk, Mogilev, Pinsk and
Radoshkovichi.

You can access the links to these lists, along with lists associated with
more than one hundred other towns in Europe where Jews once lived, at
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/cp-townlist.htm.

Help finding Bronx NY cousins and relatives #general

Avigdor Ben-Dov <avigdorbd@...>
 

Thanks to all of you out there for all the help with the Baltimore cousins. It was
a success story and opened up a whole branch of my Uncle's family I did not know
about for 40 years.In the end, I must thank Zev Giner, a true genner and friend,
for a real find: he put me in touch with someone who seems to have the same tree as
I do only going back to Lita! There is even a side story of a wierd looping, two
cousins >from Wisconsin with the same surname married into my Rutkiewicz family, one
to my brother's daughter in the Chicago area and one to my Uncle's granddaughter in
Baltimore, but they apparently didn't keep in contact with one another and maybe
still don't know about this. What a small world and thanks again to all the
wonderful JewishGenners.

Now I would like to ask if someone can help with one more Aunt and Uncle in the
Bronx NY. My Uncle Abe in Baltimore had a sister, Chajka Leja Ida Rutkiewicz--who
lived in the Bronx NY. She's listed in the 1897 Lomza Census in the same family as
my Dad Berko (Beryl) Rutkiewicz. She was born in 1886 in my hometown, Zawady Poland
and lived in the Bronx with her husband Harold Harry Siegal. they both died in the
Bronx. I am not sure which one in the SSDI is really him, but I suppose that can
easily be checked and will give me some dates, but otherwise doesn't lead me to
real people. They had two daughters, Pauline and Sylvia. The first married a Harold
(surname unknown) and had two kids, Ruth and Michael. Sylvia m. Hyman (surname
unknown) and maybe there was one child, I don't know. That's it. No more contact or
anything for 40 years, since a little before my Dad died. No surnames to go on so I
am stuck. Answers here may complete my family tree of all my Dad's family and
descendents. If I get this info. then I can finally publish my Dad' entire family
and this month is his yahrzeit too. thanks for any help

researching an individual in Argentina #latinamerica

Dear Genners,

I'm doing research for a friend whose paternal grandmother lived in
Argentina. Sadly this woman died when her son was only 5 years old.
Her grandson wants to piece together whatever information he can
about his grandmother. Basically all he has is her name and approximate
date of death.

What resources are available in Argentina that could help me access more
information?

Many thanks.
