female opera singer in Kyiv, Soviet military officer #ukraine

philafrum
 

Hi Genners,

Can anyone suggest where I can research the following:

1) Family lore indicates that a female ancestor whose given name I don't know, maiden surname BURSTEIN, married surname, MENACHIEL (or variation thereof) was an opera singer in Kyiv in the late 19th century. She died giving birth about 1901. Are there any books or related source material that provide lists of opera singers >from that period?

2) Another ancestor, BORIS/BERYL UDIN, was a high ranking officer in the Soviet military, probably during the 1930's and 1940's. How can I learn more about him? He was born around 1898, grew up in Kyiv, and died around 1982.

Please respond privately. Thanks.

Immigration to Canada...quotas #bessarabia

The Johnson-Reed Act of 1924 stayed in effect until 1965. When my
mother wanted to leave Canada in 1960 for the United States, she had
to wait years for approval >from the USA because permission was still
based on the small Polish quota in the Act and she was a Canadian
citizen born in what was then Poland (Belarus today). Yet at that
time, I was able to enter the US within months of applying because of
an open quota between Canada and the US because I was born in Canada.

Hi everyone! I'm hoping to find additional information about my
grandfather's family >from the Minsk area, as I have very incomplete (and
sometimes contradictory) family notes.
=20
Great grandfather Morris Murowchick (Murowtchik/Murawczyk/Murawzik) was
born ca. 1870 or so in David-Horodok. I'm not sure of Morris' Hebrew name,=
but it was perhaps Moische or Abram. He was a joiner/carpenter. He married=
Sarah (Sura, Sore) Kunek (Konik, Kolnik) about 1891 (she was born ca. 1870=
in Kozhan-Gorodok).
=20
At some point, they moved to Luninyets, Brest, Belarus, where all of their=
children were born: Aisik ("Ike") Murawczyk (born 17 Nov 1893?); Abram
Mendel ("Max") Murawczyk (my grandfather), born 27 May 1894 (?), Jankel
(Jack, Jacob) Murawczyk, born 10 Apr 1896; Soscha (Shirley Anna), born ca.=
1902, Dora, born ca. 1903; and Mayasche, born ca. 1910; and another
daughter Celia, birth date unclear.
=20
I believe that Morris arrived in NY on Feb 21, 1906 on the SS Ryndam,
settling in Passaic, New Jersey. He was joined by his son Aisik, who
arrived Dec 17, 1910, on the SS Russia. Sarah and their other children
arrived in NY on Feb 7, 1912, on the SS Kursk, joining Morris and Aisik in=
Passaic. At some point soon thereafter (and certainly by 1914 or 1915)
they moved to Chicago, where most of their children remained. Morris died
in Chicago in 1939; Sarah died in South Haven, Michigan, in 1943.
=20
I would very much appreciate any help or information you might have about
Morris and Sarah's families in David-Horodok, Kozhan-Gorodok, or
Luninyets. If you are related or are interested in more details about
their children in the US, please contact me and we can swap notes and
photos.

Is L. Silver of Neepawa Manitoba, 1906, in your family? #romania

bumberbidus@...
 

Hello to all

Thanks to a recent posting, I checked the 1906 Canadian Western Provinces census.
I found an L. Silver, male, aged 22, >from Romania, living as a boarder in Neepawa
Manitoba, near Macgregor. He had only been in Canada since 1905. Does anyone
have him in their family tree? I am trying to determine if he might be
Leb Silver, a younger brother of my grandfather--he is the right age, and the
person I am looking for was not in the 1905 Minnesota census with the rest of the

Hello to all

Thanks to a recent posting, I checked the 1906 Canadian Western Provinces census.
I found an L. Silver, male, aged 22, >from Romania, living as a boarder in Neepawa
Manitoba, near Macgregor. He had only been in Canada since 1905. Does anyone
have him in their family tree? I am trying to determine if he might be

A German Jewish history screenplay seeking a movie producer #germany

Richard Welch <romanizedcelt@...>
 

My 3 great grandfather Hyman LAZARUS was born in 1776 in Nieder-Olm in
the Rheinland (Palatinate) not far >from Mainz. He was the primary
subject of my Master's Thesis at Michigan State University. That was
in the 1970s.

After a career in the history museum field and success as a screenwriter
of kids' sitcoms, I've written a screenplay based on the life of my
German Jewish ancestor. I'm submitting this query to ask GerSIG members
if they know of anyone in the movie industry who might be interested
in producing it.

I would also welcome any information that members might have about
Hyman LAZARUS or his children: Caroline (1826-1899), my 2nd
great-grandmother who married Reuben WINCHELL; Mary Aurilla (1832-1895)
who married Solomon KONTNER; David William (1836-1917, who married
Mary Magdelena SWINGLE. There was another son, Peter Hyman, who died young.

The earliest record of my ancestor Hyman LAZARUS was a listing of Jews
in nearby Appenheim in 1808 where he is listed as a fruit peddler "without
settlement" meaning he could not pursue an occupation, own a home,
marry or enjoy other rights.

Records show that when he gained citizenship in Napoleon's empire he fought
in the Battle of Borodino and was on the retreat back to Paris after the
army abandoned Moscow. Interestingly enough, Napoleon allowed Jewish
soldiers to observe the Sabbath and selectively allowed them to observe
Jewish dietary laws, yet pushed them hard to assimilate.

After Napoleon's defeat, Hyman Lazarus' life slipped back to the old
ways, so, at the age of 40, he walked to Rotterdam, worked on a small
ship to Hull, walked to Liverpool, and then caught a ship, The John
Watson to America.

He landed at Philadelphia on November 29,1816 and soon received a
peddler's pack and stock >from a merchant in Philadelphia and walked to
the frontier of Ohio. Lazarus eventually settled in the new river town
of Malta, Ohio on the Muskingum River where he owned a rough and tumble
saloon that catered to the riverboat men.
He married a refugee >from Upper Canada, had four children, and died at
his home in Malta on February 25, 1851.

Rather than the stereotypical Jewish immigrant who is often portrayed
in movies, this is the story of a real man who was a hero in the
Battle of Borodino and came to North America after the defeat of
Napoleon with only his bag of clothing and bedding to his name.

The screenplay follows him >from his birth in Nieder-Olm to his death 75
years later in a small river town in Ohio surrounded by his children
and grandchildren, as promised to him by God many years before. Hyman
succeeded because he never abandoned his faith. I am a screenwriter
of kids' sitcoms, but "LAZARUS" is my first historical drama and my
readers claim it 's an exciting and inspiring story.

The logline is: God promises a persecuted German-Jew in the Rheinland
freedom >from persecution, a home and occupation, a wife, children and
many descendants, but there is a catch -- he must gain strength from
adversity while battling seemingly overwhelming obstacles on a roller
coaster ride of prejudice, war, and perils, both natural and man-made.

I did not write the script LAZARUS for the money. This is a labor of
love that I want to get to a producer to get this important story to
the American people. I think many who would be amazed that so many
non-Jews were descended >from Jewish immigrants like Hyman Lazarus, yet
lost their Jewish heritage through assimilation.

Any help >from other members of this forum will be appreciated very much.
Watch for "LAZARUS" on the big screen in the not-too-distant future

My family placenames have been changed over the years. I have info that
claims my grandfather came >from Gordner Poland, Grudna Poland, which
morphed into Lithuania, and most recently into Hrodna, Belarus.
'Belarus' can be rather confusing. Belarus was a geographical ethnic
area (similar in concept to 'The mid west' in USA). until it became a
self governing State in 1991, when it gained independence >from Russia.
Over the previous centuries parts of this area belonged to adjacent
countries such as Lithuania, Poland and Russia. The town of Grodno in
this area of Belarus belonged to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in the
Middle Ages but became part of Poland during the 18th century still
within the Commonwealth of Poland and Lithuania.

After Russia absorbed these countries into the Russian Empire, Grodno
belonged to the Grodno Gubernia (province) in Poland under Russian
rule, while within the area known as Belarus.

Today it is a city in the modern State of Belarus. But for genealogical
research I would suggest looking at Grodno Gubernia in Poland.
