Dear Ukraine.org

I am thinking of coming to Odessa and then Akkerman to find out more
information about my grandmother's maternal and paternal side. Their
names were Milman and Speigelman. What arrangments could I make in
advance of coming. I think about 4 members of my family may be
interested in the trip to seek more information. Please advise me as to
what to do first? Are there any people or a person who might be
interested in being a guide?

Regards,

Leah Esther Gofsky Levitt

Surname RABBENO #general

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knew the origin of the surname RABBENO? I
know that it refers to "Our teacher" but I am curious to know more
about this family. I am familiar with Nardo Bonomi's website on the
Italian Jews and the surname seems to only come up in the Tuscany
area. The reason I ask is I am absolutely dumbfounded as to why my
mother's family REBI, who are confirmed as being citizens of Tuscany
(under the Tuscan protection in the Ottoman Empire), don't have a
surname that shows up at all in the communal archives. I know that to
receive this protection, one had to live in Livorno/Tuscany post 1591
for a period of time. For a community with extensive records dating
back to just after, I find it incredulous that there wouldn't be at
least some mention of the family. For the record REBI means "My
Teacher", hence why I think there may be a connection.

Best,

Michael Waas

It simply means that there have been no objections or legal reasons
why the marriage should not take place.

In the U.S., there usually is a phrase in the marriage ceremony where
the officiant asks the congregation

"If anyone can show just cause why this couple cannot be
legally joined in marriage, let them speak now or forever hold their peace."

This line actually refers to "legal reasons" rather than personal
objections...like the bride or groom is already married, is under
age, or, if a minor, does not have his or her parents' consent for
the marriage.

Ustrzyki Dolne's page in Polish 1929 Business Directory #general

Hello all,

I found recently on the WWW about Ustrzyki Dolne's page in Polish 1929
Business Directory.
Mr. David Thaler >from Buenos Aires indexed these pages in excel format.
(the originals are here: http://data.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/1929/loadtop.htm?0802)
I recently asked his if he could send me a copy but due to a computer
crash, he lost the file.

Both he and I are interested to find out if someone saved a copy and
could send it via me.

Thank you in advance,

A success story #general

Marcella Shames
 

I would like to share my good fortune with the list
I have found my husband's father's family for whom I have been searching for
many years:They are the descendants of a sister left behind in Vilnius
Lithunania - her three brothers emigrated to South Africa in 1912
My discovery of the only child of the sister (alive and well and now living
in Israel) came through an unusual source which I urge all researchers to try
for missing family members - Yad Vashem can find living people
It turns out that the sister and her infant child were protected during the war
by a non-Jewish husband and wife (both mother and child survived) - the
righteous couple were honored by Yad Vashem in 2006:

I discovered a Lithuanian language pdf in a routine google search (kindly
translated by google also)In the pdf I found the last name of the family
I emailed the Yad Vashem address in the document and they forwarded my email
to the family The family contacted me - how strange and exciting it was to
see the name for which I have been searching for so many years suddenly pop
up in my inbox ...a real live sender ..no longer just the subject line

Families from Panevezys or other towns to Harrisburg Pennsylvania #general

Jeff Miller
 

In the Harrisburg Patriot newspaper >from 27 December 1911 was an article
about a party in Harrisburg hosted by my relatives >from Panevezys Lithuania,
Mr. and Mrs. Hyman LANE, for their daughter Rebecca LANE. Others at the
party were young ladies identified as "Miss" including Bessie LOON, Tillie
BEAR, Ida BLOOM, Mary SHERMAN, Jennie KLAWANSKY, Rose ZAMMIT (ZOMMIT?),
Tillie ZAMMIT (ZOMMIT?), Rose KLAWANSKY, Lena LANE, Rebecca KLAWANSKY.

Others present included Mr. and Mrs. M (Max?) LANE, Mrs. S. KLAWANSKY,
Israel CLADE, David FREEDMAN, Mr. A. GERBER, Max SMERTZ, S. DANNOVITCH,
Charles GAUSS, L. POCKEROY, D. KLAWANSKY, Samuel LANE, Abraham LANE, and
Michael KLAWANSKY.

Some of the families listed were neighbors of the LANE family, and some may
have been known through the local synagogue or other Jewish organizations,
or family connections.

from City Directories and Census records, I know that most of the Hyman LANE
family moved >from Harrisburg to Philadelphia sometime after 1920.

I'm looking for information on what happened to Hyman, wife Sarah, and their
children Rebecca, Abraham, Samuel, and Lena LANE, on who the children
married, where they lived, their families, when and where they died and are
buried.

Hyman was born about 1871 and Sarah about 1874.
Rebecca was born about 1895, Abraham I have as 18 December 1899 (based on
World War I draft registration), Samuel 12 Jul 1900, and Lena between 1902 -
1904.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
