Thank you to everyone who responded. The concensus seems to be
Ekaterinoslav (former name of Dnipropetrovsk).

Akiva and Itsko -- same name? #general

David Laskin
 

I am researching my great-grandfather, whose name in Yiddish was Avram Akiva HaKohen
-- or in Russian Kaganovich or Kahanovich. I believe he attended the Volozhin
Yeshiva in the 1870s. I have come upon a list of Volozhin Yeshiva students >from 1879
with one Abram Itsko Kagan (this is translated >from the Cyrillic script). Could this
be my great-grandfather? Is there any relation between the names Itsko and Akiva?
Thanks. David Laskin, Seattle, WA USA

Re: Sabile. Birth records from 1868 to 1869. Death records from 1872... #latvia

A. E. Jordan
 

Looking at all the wonderful information Christine is posting and I am
wondering in the translations could it be possible that Gordon and Jordan are
the same and just a matter of interpretation in the translations?

Man years ago I got records >from the Archives in Lativa on the Jordan
family and now I see what appears to be matches on Christine's tables but
instead of saying Jordan it is saying Gordon. In the latest birth tables I see
a Markus Gordon who would/should be my grandfather's brother and I see a
cousin Rokha Gordon. If these are the right people both used Jordan as their
surname not Gordon. I am told in the old country they pronounced it
Yor-dan.

Also if I am correct the fathers of these two children were brothers. For
both the Father's Patronymic is listed as Leib. The older son was Wolf
and the younger was Shaya.

As I say everthing except the Gordon is an exact match to what I believe.

Thoughts?

My Hepker or Hopker relatives >from Goldingen (tho I cannot find any

Rhodesia in the late 1880s and were butchers. Must have been in the
old country. Thats all I can contribute to the butcher discussion.

We are so very fortunate that Christine Usdine has

huge document, but you may be fortunate enough that she has done your

(This is partially copied >from instructions that I wrote for the
Latvian deaths database that was just added to Jewishgen.)

1.
Go to http://lvva-raduraksti.lv/en/register.html and complete the
registration process. This step only needs to be completed once. If
you wish to view records again, begin at step 2.

2.
For vital records of Jews, go to
http://lvva-raduraksti.lv/en/menu/lv/7/ig/7.html.

3.
If a list of places appears, then proceed to step 4. If prompted to
"Sign in", then enter the Username and Password that you selected in
step 1. (Note: Signing in will not work in some versions of Internet
Explorer. If you have problems, then try a different browser.)

4.
from the list of places, select the place you want. The name may have
changed; check Jewishgen's "Search for a town" feature if needed.

5.
There will be a long list of ranges of years, with words like "born",
"died", etc.. Each of these is in its own "book" of records. Select
the range of years that (i) includes the year you want and (ii) is
followed by the word for the type of records you want. For example,
for deaths recorded in 1855, you would select the entry that includes
the year 1855 and the word "Died". This will open a book of records.

6.
In the top right-hand corner of the screen, there should be two
arrows, a number, a /, another number, three rectangles, and the word
"Back". These arrows and numbers are used to navigate >from one page of
the book to another. Use the two arrow keys to navigate through the
pages of the book until you find the desired page of the book.

7.
Use the arrows in the top left-hand corner of the screen to move the
image around the screen until you find the correct record.


Note: Some record books are not listed correctly.

(Moliv might be a misspeling of Mogilev. I have no idea for Ekrasli

- Card Index to Children arrested parents.
At present we are working on the transference of all available information in files on the modern electronic media. This will primarily repeatedly to increase the speed of responding to requests. At the same time repeatedly to increase the possibility of the whole system by viewing the information on several criteria."

There are forms available to make the requests:
